How To Pick The Right Product For Your Natural Hair

It’s not always easy to pick the right product for your natural hair.

One can say that you can simply do trial and error, but let’s face it, we don’t always have enough time, resources, or money to do that. If only it was that easy to try out all the hair products in the world and just pick out the ones that work for us best, huh?


Now, although that’s certainly not possible, it is possible to make educated guesses regarding which hair products to use–especially if you’re knowledgeable about the topic. In this article, we’ll tell you how to pick the right product for your natural hair!

Hair Type

The best way to determine the right product for your natural hair is to take a look at your very own hair type. 

Lighter hair products like hair sprays or hair creams perform best on thinner hair types. Heavy products tend to unnecessarily weigh down the strands, giving it a dull, tired look. The product must be light enough.

On the other hand, if you’ve got thick strands, you can use heavier products like hair wax or hair paste without much risk. Light products are also typically too light to affect really thick strands.


Seasonal changes can affect which products you use for your hair. It’s only natural to use different products for winter and different products for summer. 

If you’ve got a holy grail product that works amazingly during the hotter months, you should understand that it may not be as effective during the colder months. It’s best if you have two sets of products that you can use for different seasons throughout the year.


When it comes to budgeting for hair products, you always have the option to go cheap or to go all-out. Some brands can go as low as $5 for their products, others as high as $50. 

Most of the time, the difference is already noticeable when you buy the products. Drugstore or supermarket brands tend to be cheaper, albeit the effectiveness of such products is still up for debate. Salon brands, on the other hand, are certainly more expensive, but many would say that they 

Nevertheless, it’s important to keep in mind that expensive prices do not always mean better quality products. If you’ve tried one product and it already works for you, it makes no sense to switch it out for a product simply because that one is more expensive.

For instance, our hair products here at ZALA are affordable yet highly effective for various hair types, thanks to our unique formulation.


We hope this helped you pick the right product for your hair type! But don’t beat yourself up if it takes you longer to find the perfect product for you. Remember, your hair is like a washable canvas, so don’t be scared to try and try again!
