Updated: October 3, 2021

I know natural hair care can be overwhelming. If you’re new to Hibiscus Roots or natural hair care and aren’t sure where to start, here’s a comprehensive list of everything you will need. 

Consider it a table of contents for the site. This post is an easy way to navigate the basic pillars and learn everything you NEED to properly care for your natural hair. 

With Natural Hair you only ever need to learn to do these 6 things:  

  1. Wash
  2. Deep condition
  3. Strengthen
  4. Moisturize
  5. Oil and Lubricate
  6. Protect  
  7. Combat breakage

Every other thing you find on the site is intended to support these 6 pillars. To put things simply, most ingredients can be substituted to fulfill these roles. For example, no matter which one you choose, olive oil and avocado oil both serve to oil and lubricate your hair. 

So don’t get caught on the specifics of what ingredients we talk about, you only need a few basic ingredients to start with. Every other ingredient could be added to your regimen but only if you feel like trying it!
