Shea Moisture Alternatives

Ok, so by now many of you have heard about the backlash against Shea Moisture and read our opinion on the matter.  #BoycottSheaMoisture is really happening and many are wondering what other black-owned brands are out there that can work with kinky hair. Having Type 4 hair can be challenging but in our natural hair journeys, we have tried many products. Here are our top six Shea Moisture alternatives for kinky hair

Bel Nouvo.

Founder and CEO Arcman Durosier created natural hair care products for his sister when she came to America from Haiti. As a new natural, she had difficulty finding products that worked on her kinky hair. Arcman successfully formulated products that kept her hair so popping all her friends wanted to try. Remember when we did a Fall Giveaway of the entire Bel Nouvo line? Kat and Kory wanted to keep it for themselves – ha! To purchase, visit the Bel Nouvo online store.Shea Moisture Alternatives Bel Nouvo

Courtney’s personal healthy hair care journey, science background and drive led to the success of the Mane Choice solution which has a focus on hair health.
