What Are Natural Hair Products?
When it comes to hair care products, there are typically a few types that black women can enjoy: store-bought, all-natural, or homemade.

In this article, we’ll discuss some of the best natural hair products for black women and give you some tips on how to make your own.

Dehydrated Marula Oil
Dehydrated Marula Oil is a natural oil obtained from the fruit of the African marula tree. The oil is extracted by cold pressing and has a very high vitamin C content. This makes the oil a great conditioner for colored hair because it helps to maintain moisture levels and prevent split ends.
To use dehydrated marula oil, mix one tablespoon with three tablespoons of carrier oil, like jojoba or avocado oil. Apply to hair either before shampooing or after towel drying, massaging into scalp and let sit for five to ten minutes before styling as desired.
