As we enter 2018, we’ve all set resolutions to conquer. If you are a Naturelle, then you’ve created some natural hair goals for the year. In completing our natural hair goals this year, we need tools. These tools will make our natural hair journey easier as well as allow us to complete our goals.
So, here are the natural hair tools that you need for the new year.
Wide tooth comb: The comb’s teeth are placed far apart, so that the teeth will glide through your curls. Wide tooth combs make detangling easier since they cause less friction and tangles in our mane.
Fine tooth comb: This is a definite contrast to the wide tooth comb; however, this comb serves a purpose too. If you want a straight or an even part for your elaborate hairstyles, this is the tool to use.
Detangling Brush: The detangling brush was designed to detangle our hair while defining our curls. The plastic teeth are spread apart evenly in 5 rows. The brush was created to assist naturals like yourself with detangling and styling.
Laila Ali Bonnet Hair Dryer: This dryer is equipped with conditioning IONS that assisting in moisture retention, reducing breakage as well as enhancing the sheen of your tresses. The airflow dries your hair fast and reduces frizz. In addition, it is collapsible to make storage easier.
Perm rods: Perm rods will be your life savers in your journey. If you are looking for a way to mask your heat damaged hair or relaxed hair while you are transitioning, then use these. When twisting or braiding your hair apply them to the ends of your hair. Then, when you unravel the rods and the twists your curl pattern will be cohesive and popping.
Flexi rods: Have you ever tried to sleep in curlers at night or wanted elongated curls without using a hot tool? Then, flexi rods are perfect for you. They have all the same benefits as the perm rods, as well as gives you longer curls and you can sleep at night like a baby.
Curlformers: Although curl formers may not be easy to install, especially if it’s your first time they do offer great benefits. They are great for stretching the hair, gives your curls that will last 3 days, comfortable to sleep in and blends different textures well.
Spray Bottle: Similar to how your body needs water, our hair does too. Hence, why you should have a spray bottle for the new year. The spray bottle allows for easy application of water to our hair so that it can be effectively moisturized and styled.
Hair Pins: Another lifesaver among these lists of tools are hair pins. Hair pins will fix any bad hair day or spruce up your hairstyle. They can be used to make great designs in your hair, as well as to tuck away any fly away in your hairstyles such as a bun.
Satin Bonnet, Pillow Case, Head Tie and Scrunchies: Do not use cotton items in your hair because it will soak up the moisture that you added. Only use bonnets, pillow cases, head ties and scrunchies made of satin. Satin allows you to retain the moisture you added to your hair. In addition, it reduces breakage and frizz.
