Shea Butter: Natural hair ingredients for black hair

It is very rich, full of antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties and moisturises. The skin, the scalp and the hair benefit from its virtues. It has antifungal properties which can prevent skin and scalp infections and this makes it a powerful ingredient in some of our products like:

Aloe-Vera Juice

Aloe vera juice Natural hair ingredients for black hair


The aloe vera leaf is a natural anti-inflammatory ingredient which is why it is often used to treat burns.

It is especially soothing to the scalp. It’s also a strong natural conditioner and helps flatten and smooth down the cuticles of the hair. Using Aloe vera before styling makes the hair look shinier since it allows the light to easily bounce off the hair strands. Aloe Vera also helps to reduce frizz. These are all amazing benefits we could not pass on and had to add to our arsenal of ingredients.

Here are some of our products you can find Aloe Vera in:

Hydrolysed Silk Protein

Protein is one of the key ingredients you need to keep your hair strong and prevent breakage. The hair itself is mostly made out of the protein known as keratin.

Over time, the hair loses its strengthening properties and needs a refill. However, not all proteins are equal.

Some proteins are big molecules that can coat the hair from the outside but do little to nothing for the hair from the inside. This is where silk protein is different and special, as it’s small enough to penetrate the hair shaft and strengthen it from the inside out.

This powerful difference makes it one of our proteins of choice when it comes to our products. The adequate amount of protein combined with a solid deep conditioning routine is what will take your hair to the next level.

Our Triple Protein Strengthening Hair Mask is filled with hydrolysed silk protein. You should try it!

Ingredients are important, we all know that.

However, knowing when and why to use specific ingredients will help you target the hair and scalp problems quicker and more efficiently. We at Root2Tip want to make sure that your hair gets the best of the best. It is our aim to serve you with quality products that will change your hair story once and for all.

We hope this list of natural hair ingredients for black hair help you on your journey.
