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.
