what are the best shapoos and conditioners that you use for your natural hair? I have been natural for 5 years and I still have not figured it out. I dont do alot with my hair and have not tried alot of products in it

I just went back to straight but this was my daily routine:
Leave-In conditioner- I used Aubrey Organics Swimmers Conditioner
Hair Oil- Almond Oil in fall/winter. Argan Oil Spring/Summer
I would mix the 2 together and put on my hair. My hair was soft and had a ton of curls. I tried all the regular styling products but I wanted to be as natural as possible. Also I tried Miss Jessie and Mixed Girls and they weighed down my hair.
Now w/ my straightened hair, I am using a Argan Oil and a live in Shea Butter conditioner. My stylist wants me to keep my routine since it helps keep my hair health.
Hope this helps:)

@squeak35: when you say straight did you perm it? If so Y?

@ericasdreamwedding: Yes, I permed it last month. I needed a hair change up, so I went straight. I was doing press n curl but I’m a workout fiend. Once I get pregnant, it will be a press and curl.
BTW- I’m known to radically change my hair on a whim. I’ve had hair as short as an inch to as long as down my back. For me, its just a change. Now my stylist is natural and I love it. Sometimes I’m wishing on a star to go back but he and I are loving my straight do.

Yeah it has grown alot. I dont do much to it. I was just wondering what the est products were cause i just use whatever shampoo is around. even my 2 yr olds tearfree shampoo/ I also use the Pantene for relaed and naturals and i dont like to use it. It makes detangling in the shower really difficult, I need more suggestions.

For a conditioner, Say Yes to Cucumbers is good… so is Jessicurl’s weekly deep treatment. I know you can get Say Yes to Cucumbers at Target, but I think Jessicurl is only available online..
I’m still trying to find the best shampoo for my hair… I don’t shampoo too often because it dries my hair out, but right now I’m using Carol’s Daughter’s Tui Shampoo. It’s pretty good, but I feel like I can probably find something better.
ETA: I almost forgot.. I recently used SheaMoisture’s shampoo and it’s really good. I like it much better than the Carol’s Daughter.

I use the Herbal Essence Totally Twisted Shampoo and it works pretty well. I’ve also used Olive Oil Brand Aloe Conditioning Shampoo and Panteene Relaxed and Natural Shampoo.
As far as conditioner, I use the Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner and also Cantu Leave in Shea Conditioner. I’ve found Cantu products to be really great on my natural hair

I’m natural but usually keep my hair flat ironed. I use Mixed Chicks shampoo, conditioner and leave in conditioner. Then when I flat iron I use their Hair Silk.
My hair looks just like yours when it’s wet, and here it is when I straighten it usually once or twice a week.
