10 Styling Products and Accessories for Black Hair
From the styling products that Black women use to the hair accessories that they wear, Black hair is something that is beautiful, powerful, and should be celebrated.
The emerging brands, products, and choices catered to Black women and their hair continues to bring so much hope in a society that still hasn’t learned to fully appreciate Black hair yet.
I’ve compiled 10 styling products and accessories from Amazon that are not only affordable, but give Black women the love and care their hair deserves.

Whether you have dry hair, damaged hair, or are simply looking to revive and boost your shine, this oil is a wonderful product to get the job done. Aside from moisturizing and restoring the hair, it has a lovely subtle smell and absorbs quickly. No need to worry about any residue left behind or your hair feeling weighed down by this product.
2Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Set
One thing about the Black hair journey is that it takes time to find the right products for you and your hair type. Carol’s Daughter is a Black-owned brand with hair products that have never failed to give my mane what it needs. This shampoo and conditioner set lathers well, smells amazing and has made me fall in love with my hair again.
3Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask
Despite your hair type or how often you care for it, it never hurts to give your hair some extra TLC when you can. This deep conditioning mask makes your hair feel stronger and full of life after every single use (trust me). If you’re struggling with hair breakage, give this treatment a try.
4Tangle Teezer Detangler Hairbrush for Wet & Dry Hair
Anyone with fragile hair knows the struggle of dealing with breakage or hunting down the perfect brush to minimize as much damage as possible. Just as the name suggests, this brush is truly the ultimate detangler for Black hair and can be used whether your hair is wet or dry. One of my favorite ways to use this brush is to evenly distribute my hair masks.

This leave-in treatment is a great styling product to use for many reasons, like its versatility. It can detangle, condition, soften, and moisturize, all at an affordable price. After applying, you just blow dry or air dry your hair and style as you please—simple as that!
6CHI 44 Iron Guard Thermal Protection Spray
Speaking of styling, heat protection is always key. Growing up, my hair stylist always used CHI products to protect my hair, and it has been my go-to for years. This protection spray guards and gives your hair such a silky shine and texture that you won’t be able to take your eyes off it.
7Briogeo Scalp Revival Stimulating Therapy Massager
Yes, this product is just as amazing as it sounds. A healthy scalp is key for the overall health of your hair. This product increases blood circulation and stimulation to your scalp, also encouraging hair growth for all of the mermaids out there. Use it while you massage your oil, shampoo, or hair treatment in. You will never get tired of how good this feels.
8Mielle Organics Pomegranate & Honey Coil Sculpting Custard
If you have Type 4 hair, this product is made for you — enough said. The sculpting gel defines, hydrates, and rejuvenates your curls using its combination of all natural oils and ingredients. It also works beautifully for those who want natural twists.
9Grace Eleyae GE Women's Satin Lined Sleep Cap Slap
With styling products comes the accessories needed to protect the health of your hair. Grace Eleyae came up with modern hair protection that truly works to nourish Black hair, no matter where you are. This SLAP (satin-lined cap,) is made with non-abrasive material to prevent damage, tangles, and knots while you sleep. It also helps lock in your hair’s moisture.
10Nydotd 180 Pieces Hair Rings
In my opinion, hair accessories are one of the best ways to celebrate Black hair. They’re fun and can make such a bold statement. Braid rings are easy, effortless ways to style Black hair. They come in different shapes, sizes, styles, and colors and are guaranteed to accentuate your hair.
For us Black women, taking care of our hair is a way for us to show love to ourselves and pay homage to our history.
