Updated on January 6, 2014

What Products to Use on Black Natural Hair at a Low Price?

Have you been transitioning from relax to natural hair and was wondering what are the right and best low price products to use on your hair?

I've transitioned from relax to natural hair over 3 years ago and that journey was a hard one, but using the right shampoos and conditioners will help you to manage both textures of your hair while you're growing out your relaxer.

Now good shampoos and conditioners doesn't have to break the bank, so I'll explain in this article shampoos and conditioners I've used that are good for your hair and low price.

Also check out how I currently do my twist outs and what hair products I use.

Good Natural Cheap Hair Shampoos For Natural Hair

Natural Low Price Shampoos

When transitioning to natural hair, I needed to find the right shampoos to fit my hair wants and needs. I wanted to avoid ingredients like alcohols, parabens, petroleum, sulfates/ sulphates, which can be very drying to the hair and also create product build up. I wanted a good shampoo that is natural, suds well, and won't strip my hair of its natural oils.

Check out this article on NaturallyCurly.com to learn more about harmful ingredients to avoid in hair.

Trying to find that perfect shampoo for me caused me to bcome a product junkie! LOL! I would try one shampoo one day and go out and buy another.

People always think that good natural hair products are too expensive which is not always the case because you can find a good natural shampoo at your local grocery store or Vitamin store. Here are a list of shampoos that I like to use:

Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo

OGX Shampoo Nourishing Coconut Milk, (1) 13 Ounce Bottle, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Sustainable Ingredients, Strengthens, Hydrates, Balances and Restores Elasticity
OGX Shampoo Nourishing Coconut Milk, (1) 13 Ounce Bottle, Paraben Free, Sulfate Free, Sustainable Ingredients, Strengthens, Hydrates, Balances and Restores Elasticity

This organic shampoo you can find at your local grocery store or Walmart. Organix has several different scents, not just coconut which is the first scent Organix brand came out with. I enjoy how thick the shampoo is and the amount of suds it creates. My hair feels clean every time! Organix has shampoos and conditioners that fit your needs like moisturizing shampoo and voluming shampoos. Price for Organix products runs about $6.

 

JASON Shampoo

Jason Pure Natural Shampoo, Restorative Biotin, 16 Ounce
Jason Pure Natural Shampoo, Restorative Biotin, 16 Ounce

Their shampoos can be found at Target, local vitamin shops, and some grocery stores. JASON shampoos are a bit runny but it does its job with getting my hair clean. They have a few variety of different shampoos to choose from. I like to use their shampoo with biotin and lavender because it helps gives my hair fullness. Price for JASON products varies from $4-$10.

 

Aubrey Organics Shampoo

Aubrey Organics - Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo - 11oz
Aubrey Organics - Honeysuckle Rose Shampoo - 11oz

You can find their shampoos at your local Vitamin Shop or online. Their shampoos are pretty light and doesn't sud as much unless your hair is really damp. Still gets the job done. I've enjoyed using their Honey Suckle Rose shampoo. Price for Aubrey Organics is about $10

 

Good Low Price Conditioners for Natural Hair

Some people don't realize that there are several good conditioners that are $4 or less! I'm serious! I get good slippage from cheap conditioners from my local grocery store. After I've shampooed, I've always used a conditioner to moisturize my hair or my hair would feel dry and be hard to comb.

I like to comb my hair with some conditioner in it to make sure each strand of hair gets conditioned and also comb out the tangles. Also when I cowash (wash hair with conditioner instead of shampoo) I like to use cheap conditioners. Here are some of my conditioner cheapies that I enjoy.

Aussie Moist Conditioner

Aussie Moist Conditioner, 13.5 oz
Aussie Moist Conditioner, 13.5 oz

I like to add some Roo to my Doo with their conditioners. My hair feels great and good for cowashing.

 

Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner

Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo 10.1 (Pack of 2)

Organix Conditioner

OGX Conditioner, Nourishing Coconut Milk, 13oz

What can I say? I love all of their products from their shampoos to their conditioners!

 

Tressemme Natural Conditioner

TRESemme Conditioner, Naturals Nourishing Moisture 25 oz
TRESemme Conditioner, Naturals Nourishing Moisture 25 oz

Tressemme Natural Conditioner has been my new conditioning staple! I love how moisturize and soft my hair is after using this product. Also works very well when I co-wash which makes my curls pop! Great slippage and great price! Can't beat that!

 

Low Price Deep Conditioners

Every time I shampoo and condition my hair, I always use a deep conditioner. This helps keeps my hair soft, more manageable when combing, and moisturized! Below are the deep conditioners I like to use.

Neutrogena Clean Replenishing Deep Recovery Hair Mask, 6 oz
Neutrogena Clean Replenishing Deep Recovery Hair Mask, 6 oz

Gives me a good deep condition but since I'm very heavy handed when using deep conditioners, it doesn't last me very long.

 
Queen Helene Cholesterol Cream 15 oz. Jar
Queen Helene Cholesterol Cream 15 oz. Jar

I really don't like the smell of Queen Helene Cholesterol Cream but it gets my hair soft and easier to comb.

 

Leave In Conditioners

Having a leave in conditioner is a must for my hair or my hair will be really dry! I use the most cheapest leave in conditioners and it always does the job for my hair. Below are some low price leave in conditioners I like to use.

Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner, Weightless Moisture, 8.5-Ounce Containers (Pack of 3)
Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner, Weightless Moisture, 8.5-Ounce Containers (Pack of 3)

Giovanni is my favorite Leave-In Conditioner and gives me great soft curls. My curls pop when using this product and I can comb through my hair with no tangles.

 
Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, 8 Ounce
Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, 8 Ounce

This is a liquid base conditioner when has a good smell and works pretty good.

      I am allergic to many brands of shampoo and conditioner and like you went through I don't know how many brands to find ones I could use. I hate seeing the words NEW and IMPROVED on a label because it usually means that I can chuck that brand lol. I am now experimenting with a coconut oil shampoo and it seems to be doing okay.

      @aesta1: Very true! I have hard water at home which strips the moisture in my hair. That is why I prefer to cowash my hair to keep the moisture in my hair. I wish I could use lake water, but I'm not near a lake.

      Sometimes, the water in your place matters. When I am in a lake and get the water from the lake for my hair, my hair is soft and straight or from a river, it's the same thing but heavily chlorinated water can really make my hair frizzy.

      @captainj88: Thank you Leah for sharing my lens to your friend. Also a good way to keep her hair moisturized is by cowashing (washing hair with just conditioner). This will help fight dryness from the dry hot weather. Make sure the conditioner is a Moisturizing Conditioner.

      My best friend Kayla and her husband Ilexene are moving to Haiti for mission work. She is looking for some affordable natural products she can take with her in bulk, since she won't have the convenience of large markets once she gets to St. Luis du Nord. I'm going to send her the link to this lens. Thanks for sharing!
