From keeping it clean to styling the perfect ‘do, haircare in the summer can be a LOT of work. Luckily, I’ve found my favorite tried-and-true products to get you to your best hair day yet – today and all summer long! Read on for an easy tutorial on how to take care of naturally textured hair.
When it comes to using products on my natural hair, Cantu is a brand that I trust and love. When cleansing my hair, I use the Cantu Complete Conditioning Co-Wash and Cantu Repair Deep Conditioner for my regimen. The co-wash is great for cleansing the scalp and hair follicles to get your past product out of there. It doesn’t lather, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t working because co-washing is safer and better for the hair anyway. This creamy product actually includes a whopping 15+ natural butters and oils – you can’t beat that! The best part of it is that it leaves your hair feeling clean and full of moisture. This is the first step in helping my curls to pop when I want to wear my natural hair, or even if I’m prepping it for a protective style.
I love to follow the co-wash with Cantu’s leave-in conditioning repair cream! This product helps to lock in moisture for the entire Queen treatment for those luscious curls, and it keeps them healthy, shiny and strong.
It’s amazing when you can find different uses for products that were meant for one purpose. I love using Got2B Glued in order to keep my lace-front wigs in place! It’s super safe for my hair line, and lays my natural edges perfectly. Simply use a toothbrush to apply!
But keep in mind: a little goes a long way! Just a little bit for a seamless look, and you don’t have to worry about your wig moving all day! Depending on how you wrap your hair at night you can get this product to last for a few days.
For wig styling, I like to use a NYX HD Concealer. Since this shade pairs well with my skin tone, it’s perfect for creating the appearance of scalp on a wig. I just love this product for this finished look!
I had such a great time pampering myself with these products from Meijer and styling this beautiful look. Now go enjoy the weather and your beautiful selves!
