While writing this post, I realized that all the products are under 5000 Naira ($10), it got me wondering why people are always complaining that “having natural hair is expensive”. Once you find the right products for your hair, you really do not have to break the bank to maintain healthy hair. These products are my absolute favorites that have been of great help on my natural hair journey and I’ve gone through at least 2 tubs/bottles of each. I use the Liquid – Cream – Oil (LCO) method to moisturize my hair and Leave-in conditioners are the creams I use. So far, these are my favorites:
This is my MVP (Most Valued Product). I’ve had this since my relaxed hair days and I was literally over the moon when I discovered that it worked perfectly on my natural hair too. If you need a moisturizing leave-in conditioner, this is your product. It leaves my hair soft and moisturized all the time.
Price: 2000 Naira
I only started using this late last year when I was curating The Beauty Box. I wanted a leave-in conditioner in the box and the store attendant recommended this, I got one extra for myself to try just so I could take it out of the box if I didn’t like the way it worked on my hair. But I was pleasantly surprised when it worked really well on my hair, only con for me is that it has an overpowering smell but I have a really sensitive nose so it might be just me.
Price: 2200 Naira
You know those products that were your staple when you first started taking proper care of your hair but you just dropped along the way? Yeah, this is one of them. This was one o my favorite leave-in conditioners and I used to add it to my deep conditioning concotions and it would work as a miracle. This + honey + olive oil used to be my go-to, quick moisture-retention deep conditioning formula.
Price: 4500 Naira
4.) Giovanni Direct Leave-in Weightless Moisture Conditioner
This is my absolute favorite on this list. Nibi of Kinky Apothecary introduced me to the Giovanni brand when she gifted me some products off the tea tree line and I was hooked! It’s a bit difficult finding this particular conditioner around here and it’s quite pricey so I substitute with the other conditioners on this list most of the time.
Price: 4800 Naira
5.) Kinky Curly Knot Today
Last, but definitely not the least, this works excellently as both a leave-in and a detangler. This product finishes faster than any of my other products because I really love slathering it on my hair even on occasions when it’s not needed.
Price: 2500 Naira
Have you tried any of these leave-in conditioners? What is your favorite leave-in conditioner?
