With multiple texture types, natural hair can be styled in so many ways (braids, twists, knots, locs and more!)
To get insight into the best natural hair products for styling and maintaining the health of ever-so-versatile waves, coils, kinks and curls, we tapped the biggest names in Hollywood hair. Here, hairstylists specializing in styling curly textures -- from Vernon François, Lupita Nyong'o's go-to hairstylist, to Tippi Shorter, Alicia Keys' main hair gal -- share the must-have products in their kits.
"For me, natural means hair that has not been altered or processed with heat, chemicals or color, which may be kinky, coily, curly or wavy," François tells ET. "These stylers are my top three for afro hair that I know many people call natural. They are great for curls and waves too."
Ahead, discover the best products for natural hair to try, according to celebrity hairstylists.
Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and Yara Shahidi are only some of her high-profile clients. Shorter is the global artistic director of haircare line Mizani and the host of Texture Table Talk -- Mizani's web series on in-depth conversations on representation and diversity in the beauty industry.
"My favorite product for natural hair is the ACV Scalp Scrub by dpHUE. Most girly girls, myself included, love using cleansing conditioners and for our hair. Our scalp, however, needs great attention too and this gently exfoliates the scalp."
