Mielle Rosemary Mint Scalp & Hair Strengthening Oil

ALL NATURAL: black owned hair care products


To shop: $10; mielleorganics.com

This award-winning hair oil from Mielle went viral on TikTok — and for good reason. Not only does it smell amazing (it has a light, refreshing rosemary and mint scent), but it also makes my hair feel amazing. The oil is infused with biotin (a vitamin that helps with the production of keratin), rosemary oil (known to help fight balding and improve hair retention), and 30 other essential oils and nutrients. These are all designed to encourage stronger and healthier hair growth, nourish the hair follicles, smooth split ends, and even fight a dry scalp. 

You can apply it to your scalp, use it in specialized scalp treatments, enjoy it during a hot oil treatment, or use it as regular split-end care. It works with all hair types and textures.

Retro Rich

To shop: $21; retrorichcompany.com

I have very dry hair that struggles to keep in moisture. I’ve tried a lot of products and believe me, this cream is one I can really say works. 

This rich cream is made with shea butter and natural chebe powder, an extract that's been used by women in Chad (a region in Africa) to help keep their hair long and healthy for centuries. I found that my hair was able to hold in moisture for a much longer amount of time which made it stronger. In turn, I avoided breakage and was able to retain length.

After struggling with hair loss caused by alopecia, Ama Amo-Agyei, founder and CEO of the natural hair care brand Plantmade, decided to create the solution by blending her science background with ancient Ayurvedic and African ingredients inspired by her Ghanaian heritage.  

I love the entire Plantmade range, but one of my favorites has got to be this weightless leave-in hair mist — it’s like a drink of water for your hair. It supports hair growth, soothes the scalp and strands, alleviates dryness and detangles your hair in just a few sprays.

Braids are a great protective style, especially during the Fall — I’m a big fan.

This six-piece collection makes it easy. It has everything you need to keep your braids fresh, including an anti-itch serum, a moisturizing shampoo, a dry gel shampoo, a strengthening leave-in conditioner, a growth oil and a conditioning and restoring serum.
