My Natural Hair Product Staples

These are my hair properties:

Low Porosity

Hey Queen, I’m Brittany

I am what we call a lazy natural. I love natural hair, drinking water, and minding my business. I have waist length 4C natural hair (that shrinks all the way up to my scalp) and 11 years of skin in the game. 

3 Step Method

Mielle Organics

Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner

Leave- in with a lot of slip! 

This leave in has incredible slip. A pro tip is too use lots of water to distribute the product. I had no issue brushing my hair with just this product.

Mielle Organics

Babassu Conditioning Shampoo

Moisturizing shampoo with incredible slip.

I haven’t needed to pre-poo at all when using this shampoo. While I have had shampoo products with better slip, this one is still leagues above your run of the mill shampoo.

LCO Method

Melanin Hair Care


Pre-poo heaven. You’ll never need another detangler! 

Have you ever gone a while without detangling your hair? Did you cry at the thought of tussling out your tangles. I have found your solution. Naptural85 has blessed us all with a product that is just amazing in the slip category. Shed hairs almost fall out into your fingers. Apply to your hair and pull down in smooth motions to remove tangles.

Any Brand

Coconut Oil

Pair with Melanin Hair Care Multi-Use Softening Leave in conditioner to pre-poo and detangle.

I only use coconut oil when I am pre-pooing. It’s not that great because it just in my hair but the slippage it provides is undeniable.

The Mane Choice

Revitalize & Refresh 3 in 1 Conditioner

Perfect low porosity moisturizer! 

I absolutely adore this product. It is my staple, if I had to chose one that I would not go without it would be this one. It has a thick and creamy consistency that is good to weigh down and stretch coarse 4c hair. Unfortunately there has been a formula change (and price increase), and I do not agree with the new composition. The company was recently sold. If you can find the version with the black top and no scent, I recommend jumping on it. In the meantime, I am sadly searching for a replacement. I found the original on sale at Sally’s. This is not an affiliate link. The button below is the new formula. 

Heritage Store

Castor Oil | Cold Pressed

Pair with Mane Choice 3n1 conditioner!

I love this oil. So much. Please do not confuse this with those little Jamaican Black Castor oil bottles. Its not the same. At least for me. I always use castor oil to seal. It feels so good against my hair and does wonders for my roots. I mix this with my mane choice moisturizer and a bit of water then use it in a spray bottle to refresh my hairstyles. Give it a try and tell me how well it works for you!

ORS Olive Oil

Replenishing Conditioner

Combine with Hot Six Oil

I have been using this conditioner for over a decade now. It contains a bit of protein and really softens my hair. I use it with a light oil in the shower to help with slip. I love the smell too! I buy this conditioner in the 33 oz size because I use it that much! Rating 4.5 since it does lack in the slip category without an oil.

African Royale

Hot Six Oil

Combine with ORS Replenishing conditioner! 

I use this in the shower on top of my conditioner to add much needed slip before twisting up my hair section. I swear by it! As a bonus, it adds shine to your hair and is very light weight without being useless.

That’s it! Thats the whole list. For more information on how I use these products, read My 4C Hair Regimen
