6. Argan Oil
No one wants a dry scalp. It’s not even a question. A dry scalp leads to itchiness, flaking, and even scalp inflammation. No thank you! Using Argan Oil in your hair is crucial to keeping this problem at bay.
Dry scalp equals dead skin clogging the way, preventing shedding and new hair follicle growth. No new growth means lifeless curls. We die! Instead, use Argan Oil to ensure that your scalp remains moisturized and can produce new hair follicles the way the body intended.
Pick up some Argan Oil and apply it every other day to prevent clogging your pores; then sit back, watch and feel the glorious benefits.
7. SheaMoisture Manuka Honey Hair Masque
To have curls that spring back no matter what direction you pull them, your hair has to have elasticity. However, if your hair has not been appropriately moisturized, it will lack those elastic properties that give it the ability to spring back into place.
The SheaMoisture Manuka Honey Hair Masque can be applied to your scalp, then covered to allow the hydration to rejuvenate every single strand of your curly hair. After about 30 minutes to an hour, rinse out the masque and then apply your daily moisturizer.
Your hair is going to be revived, bouncier than ever before. And, if that’s not enough, SheaMoisture Manuka Honey Hair Masque makes your hair smell good enough to eat.
8. African Pride Gel N' Cream

Using African Pride Gel N' Cream will help get you that extra day out of each hairstyle without causing your curls to clump up. Wearing a bonnet at night or sleeping on a satin pillowcase will also help you achieve maximum styling longevity.
