Maintaining natural hair doesn’t have to be difficult. As long as you’ve got the right tools and techniques, caring for your natural hair will be simple. Here are 8 best natural hair tools for having healthy natural hair. From deep conditioning tools to styling tools, these will make caring for your natural hair a walk in the park!

The 8 Best Natural Hair Tools You Need for Healthy Natural Hair

1.   Satin Bonnet or Pillowcase

All that tossing and turning in your sleep can damage your natural hair if you have nothing to protect it. Cotton pillowcases cause friction to your hair while you're sleeping, making it dry, frizzy and prone to breakage and split ends. So the best natural hair tools to make sure your hair isn’t crying is to sleep with a satin bonnet or pillowcase.

Our Satin Bonnets are double-sided, made of high-quality satin/silk, and are adjustable making them slip-free and suitable for any head size!

Satin is a smoother material compared to cotton. And best of all, it won’t strip the moisture out of your hair. So sleeping with a satin bonnet or pillowcase will allow your hair to retain its natural oils, keeping it happy and healthy!

2.   Spray Bottle

Natural Hair is like a flower. It needs water to stay hydrated, grow and blossom. So one of the most important natural hair tools to keep your curls and coils healthy is a spray bottle. Whether you’re detangling your hair, styling your hair or just giving it a refresh, a spray bottle will make sure that your hair is moisturised.

Using a spray bottle is simple, you just fill it up with distilled or filtered water and you’re good to use it on your hair! You can even fill up your spray bottle with ¾ of water and ¼ of leave-in for that extra slip and moisture! After using your spray bottle, always remember to seal in that moisture with a cream and oil of your choice!

3.   Detangler Brush

Detangling is the process of removing knots and tangles in your hair. It can be a tedious process especially if you’re not using the correct tools and techniques. An essential natural hair tool you need to use when detangling is a detangler brush. This will make the detangling process smooth sailing with minimal breakage.

But it’s also important to use the right detangling techniques to make sure you aren’t ripping out those knots and tangles with your brush either! First, make sure your hair is moisturised. If you’re detangling right after washing your hair, then you’re good! But if you’re detangling your hair to style it, spray your hair with water first. You can also apply a leave-in conditioner to give your hair more slip, making it smoother to brush through.

After applying water and leave-in, finger detangle your hair so that you can feel the big knots and tangles and gently release them. Start with combing your hair through with your hands from the tip of your hair strands and work your way up until you reach the roots. Then, grab your detangler brush and do the same technique to release the smaller knots in your hair.

Using your detangler brush this way will help minimise so much tension on your hair that you’ll feel so relieved after!

4.   Hair Clips

Hair clips are great natural hair tools for sectioning your hair! When washing, moisturising or styling your hair, using hair clips will help keep unwanted strands out of the way, allowing you to focus on one section of your hair at a time. Unlike hair bands, hair clips won’t tug on your hair because they wrap around it rather than pull it. This additionally prevents hair breakage at your roots and edges!

5.   Microfibre Towel

As we mentioned before, cotton is basically the enemy of natural hair and this includes cotton towels. When using a cotton towel to dry your hair, it will cause friction making your hair more fragile and prone to breakage. So instead of using a cotton towel, switch to the best natural hair tool for drying your hair: a microfibre towel.

The microfibre material is much more smooth and faster drying than a cotton towel. This helps to absorb the water from your hair and reduce frizz, breakage and split ends.

When drying your hair with a microfibre towel, remember to pat it and gently squeeze it instead of rubbing it to minimise knots and tangles!

6.   Steam Cap

Deep conditioning your natural hair regularly will help add moisture to your hair and reduce moisture loss. Adding heat while you’re deep conditioning can help open the cuticles of your hair, allowing moisture to penetrate through to the scalp, instead of just moisturising the surface. This is especially helpful if you have low porosity hair, where your hair doesn’t absorb water and products easily.

So a steam cap is an amazing natural hair tool for deep conditioning your hair with heat. Simply apply your deep conditioner to your hair after washing it, put on your shower cap and your steam cap then set it to the temperature of your choice. Allow the heat to open up those hair cuticles, moisturising your hair for 15-20 minutes and wash the deep conditioner out afterwards!

7.   Satin Hair Scrunchie

When using regular hair bands on your natural hair, it can get tangled when taking them out, causing tugging and tension on your scalp. So not only are satin scrunchies cute natural hair tools, but they’re also stretchy and soft, allowing them to easily glide out of your hair and prevent hair breakage!

8.   Scalp Massager

A scalp massager is one of the best natural hair tools for boosting blood circulation. This will help to strengthen your roots and promote hair growth. When using your scalp massager, make sure to moisturise and oil it first. After, gently use the scalp massager in small circular motions on your scalp. It’s that simple!
