Natural Hair Care for Black Hair with Kinky-Curly Products

I'm so proud of my hair.  It's finally grown to a length where I feel comfortable wearing it out in double strand twists and a twist-out without the assistance of added hair.  Thanks to my new natural hair stylist who put in a luscious dark brown color by Clairol, trimmed and twists my hair every four to six weeks, my hair is glowing and growing.

Me and my double-strand twists.
But Everything She Wants also has to give major credit to the tried-and-true and new Kinky-Curly products I was gifted, which help me condition and re-twist my own hair in between appointments with newfound ease.  The products are made with all-natural, organic ingredients and formulated to add moisture and hold without drying out your hair.

Here's the Kinky-Curly regimen that's worked wonders for me this summer:

Wash with the sulfate-free shampoo, Come Clean, made with a blend of Mandarin Orange extract and Sea Kelp.

Add Knot Today to wet hair as a leave-in conditioner.  This is also a miracle product for detangling your hair after removing braids and extensions.

Part and twist hair with Curling Custard.  This is hands-down the best product I've used to twist my hair. Infused with Agave Nectar, it adds sheen and helps to define and elongate my natural curls. A little goes a long way.

After my hair has been twisted for a day or two, I style and refresh it with Spiral Spritz. Sometimes I even use the lightweight, Aloe-based spray to re-twist my hair instead of the heavier Curling Custard.

Recently, I added two new Kinky-Curly products to my weekly regimen.  Formulated with Moroccan Argan oil, Perfectly Polished is designed to lubricate, protect and add sheen to your hair.  I use it to soften and spruce up my dry, styled hair.  Next, I'll try it as a hot oil treatment.

And Midnight Miracles is a lightweight yet potent overnight treatment that penetrates the hair shaft with an exclusive blend of castor bean extract, silk protein, dead sea salt and meadowfoam seed oil.  About once a week I apply it to my dry hair before bedtime. In the morning I wet my hair a little before applying a shower cap to give it a mini steam treatment.
