Hair Fix: Moisturisers for natural hair


‘What’s the best product to use as a moisturiser on type 4c natural hair? I’ve just bought the organic root stimulator hair lotion, is that good or is there something better?’ – Christina


You’ve made a great choice – we love the ORS Hair Lotion!

Just as a refresher for readers who don’t know; what you’re looking for in a moisturising product is actual moisture. Butters and oils aren’t moisturisers, they merely seal in the moisture. So, when you’re shopping for a moisturising product, have a look at the ingredients. If the first ingredient isn’t water/ aqua, then it isn’t an actual moisturiser.

Because we love having options, here are other products that you might want to try:

- ORS (formerly Organic Root Stimalutor) Curls Unleashed Take Command Curl Defining Creme

- ORS Carrot Oil (it’s called an ‘oil’, but it’s actually a moisturiser)

- ORS HAIRepair Anti-Breakage Creme

- Motions Nourish Leave-In Conditioner

- Curl Care by Dr Miracles Weightless Moisturizing Creme
