How to Choose Hair Care Products For Curly, Coily and Kinky Hair

People of African decent have unique hair texture and curl pattern. The range includes, fine loosely curled tresses to thick, super curly or kinky locks. God make us all beautiful and we should wear our hair proudly in a way that honors our heritage.

History has played a significant part in how people of color view their hair. In many ways society sends messages that our hair need to be “tamed, texturized or treated” in some way or another. Take a moment and think about it. Would God create characteristics in the hair of millions of people and then tell us to spend money fixing the mistakes? I don’t think so. What I know for sure is when curly, spiraled or kinky hair is cared for the way it was indented, the result is soft, manageable hair with visible health and shine.

Three years ago, I was inspired to create a hair care ritual to meet the need of Black Hair. As a natural hair specialist, and beauty expert I was frustrated by the lack of quality plant based products to care for our hair. Over 95% of hair care products in the mainstream marketplace were full of petrochemicals like petroleum jelly and mineral. Which do absolutely nothing to improve the health of our hair? Shampoos were full of harsh detergents that strip black hair of its natural oils. Countless hair pomades and oils, braid sprays and even relaxers claiming to “natural, organic or from the Motherland.” One glance at the label and the first five ingredients read like a broken record the same inferior ingredient in every brand. Colorful packaging, pretty models and buzz words, but all fall short.

I challenge you to read the labels on the products you use to “care” for you unique hair. Now compare them to the first five ingredients any of Indigofera’s plant based hair care products. Olive, jojoba and sweet almond oil, mango and Shea butter, sage, nettle, lavender, peppermint and lemongrass essential oil. Once you experience the difference you always demand the best.
