I am new to this natural hair journey and what I have seen is that people do use a lot of products that I find unnecessary. I have a 4b hair type so I usually can't do a wash and go style I would have to put a curl activator in it to get a curly look but otherwise than that I only use Eco styler gel for my hairstyles olive oil sheen spray and doogro growth stimulator oil and of course my shampoo and conditioners, and my hair is growing and healthy.
