As every beauty savvy gal knows, each season calls for a change in your hair care routine. This year, I am moving towards more indie brands that have less chemicals and more healthy ingredients. My hair tends to be very dry so I am always on the lookout for great products that hydrate while not weighing it down. Check out these That Girl At The Party favs for summer 2019!
Rahua Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner
This is my go-to line for added moisture. My curls literally drink it up. I have had two occasions to meet Fabian, the Founder of this amazing line. He’s a gentle wonderful man, who gifted me with Palo Santo when I first met him. Infused with Rahua Oil, this is my favorite shampoo and conditioner. The products are plant-based symbiotic®, vegan, non-toxic and free of parabens, siliciones sulfates and gluten. It’s very expensive, so I faithfully stick to a dime size!
DevaCurl Heaven In Hair
Once a week I treat my hair to this moisture rich deep conditioning intense moisture mask that leaves my locks fortified and hydrated. Some of the DevaCurl products are not moisturizing enough for tight curl patterns. But their Heaven In Hair mask is miraculous and I also like the Supercream for light control of edges.
Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil Intense Repair Set
I alternate this line with the Rahua products. I have always loved the Carol’s Daughter line as she was the first to create products specifically for transitioning to natural hair. Since curly hair is very fragile and prone to breakage. The Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil Line helps strengthen our hair and prevents breakage by 96%, allowing hair to live 13x longer! After just one use, you’ll have stronger, longer invincible hair. Formulated without parabens, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals or phthalates, this is a must-have line.
Camille Rose Natural Curl Maker
This line is totally incredible. Free of everything harmful, Camille Rose Naturals is one of the first, and best, organic black hair care lines. It was founded by a gorgeous vegan Mom of 5, who created the conscious brand in 2014. I only discovered her amazing line this year. My favorite product is the Curl Maker. This is the best gel for curly hair. I hate crunchy curls, so I use this to define my hair and also for my edges.
Cantu Edge Gel
Snatch those edges with this amazing edge gel from Cantu. It is simply the best.
Belleza Natural Mix It Up Curl Enhancing Line
This new line from Belleza Natural is customizable so you can change your regimen based on your changing hair needs. For example, mix in the minerals concentrate one week and the lipids or vitamins the next. Or you can do a drop of all three. The combinations are endless!
Hau Hair Mask
Hau Hair Mask was an Indie Beauty Expo discovery and I live for it now. This awesome
K-beauty mask leaves my curls hydrated and defined. I use these every other week as an intense treatment.
Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment
Miss Jessie’s is a beautiful scrumptious line and I love many of their products. My very favorite is the Super Sweetback Treatment. I sometimes leave a light amount in as a leave-in conditioner on damp hair and it completely changes my natural curl pattern. And that scent is to die for! It used to be too expensive, so I am happy to see they have finally gotten real about the pricing and made the line more affordable.
I was introduced to this great line at the WWD Style Dimension party during February Fashion Week. The line is made of Apple Cider Vinegar, which clarifies the hair and helps rid it of product build-up. This line is wonderful and leaves my curls clean and hydrated. I am particularly mad for the Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse that I use as a co-wash.
