Saying that we don’t have locally manufactured natural hair products is false. Most of these kitchen mixes are supposed to moisturise and strengthen hair and a good number of local products can do that job very well. However, different people have different reasons for going natural. Some want to feel completely natural while others feel frustrated by relaxers and other hair mismanagement practices and that is why some people feel more satisfied with mixing different oils and fruit content to use on their hair. These creations may deliver because they are the same ingredients that professional product developers use to put together different products. My concern is whether those making them get the ratios right.
I do not approve of kitchen mixes since I advocate for professionally manufactured products for best results on any form of hair.
My take is that most of the products used on relaxed hair are adequate for natural hair too. The difference is in the styling aids, which help enhance the curl or help to deliver the look that one is looking for.
