10 Natural Hair Products Under $10

What if I told you that you don’t have to buy $20-$40 hair products for awesome results? As a mother of two, I’m always on a budget. The problem is, we have a lot of hair between the three of us, so we go through hair products like crazy.  I mean seriously, who really uses a dime sized amount?  After years of trying out different high end products and getting the same “OK” results, I started looking elsewhere. Below is a list of hair products we use faithfully that are all under $10.

10 hair products under 10

Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle. This is a great deep conditioner for days when you can’t do the whole thirty minute deep conditioning routine.

Aussie Moist Conditioner. This is my favorite hair conditioner. I use this twice a week to condition and detangle my hair.

Aussie Moist Shampoo. If you haven’t figured it out by now, I love the whole Aussie Moist line lol.

Curls Creme Brule Whipped Curl Cream. This stuff smells amazing and it’s perfect for defining curls in a wash n go.

Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream. This is one of my staple hair products.  I use this year round and not only does it smell good, it keeps my hair moisturized.

Cantu Coconut Curling Creme. I use this for all of my twist/braid outs. Pairing this with the Cantu leave in is the best thing you can do for your hair.

Cantu Complete Conditioning CoWash. I cowash my hair once a week and this product is good for cleansing the scalp and hair without drying it out.

Argan Oil EcoStyler Gel. I use this for the girl’s hair and it helps their hairstyles last a few days. It’s light weight and it doesn’t leave flakes in their hair.

Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal Shampoo/Conditioner. They’re a package, so I’m going to just count them as one today. I tried these two together for the first time last moth and my hair was so soft and easy to manage.

Cantu Deep Treatment Masque. I alternate between this and my Shea Moisture deep conditioning masque and it works just as good. I use it as least twice a month for thirty minutes at a time  and it keeps my curls poppin’.

So there you have it, TEN amazing hair products under $10. Keep in mind that when building you regimen, what works for me may not work for you.  For tips on building a natural hair regimen, click here.

    I have to try the cream brule! I have somewhat crazy curls and I’m always on the hunt for a product that defines my hair.

      Yes girl! My curls are pretty crazy for the most part and Curls definitely helps define them.

    This is great being a college student and being natural sometimes seems to break the bank! I will definitely be using this!

    I remember going into target this hair, struggling to find the best curly hair product for my curly hair daughter especially under 10 that I knew would do a great job. So far it seem I’m on the right track, I have three of those products on your list, imagine my excitement that I got it right! YAY MOMMEE! ??

    True, you do have to find what works for your hair…and sometimes that’s through trial and error
    Since rocking my twa, I have not used any of these, I really try to keep things simple, but I’m always up for learning a thing or 2

  10. October 4, 2017 / 7:26 pm

    Ohh, I definitely think I’m going to try that 3 minute miracle, it sounds great! I have really thick, curly hair and it took a long time for me to find the right products that work for my hair!

  11. October 4, 2017 / 6:06 pm

    I love finding affordable hair and beauty products that still do a great job. I’ve never tried the Aussie brand before but I keep hearing great things about it.

      Try it, it’ll change your life lol.

  12. October 4, 2017 / 5:24 pm

    Cantu and ECO have been my go to brands for affordable natural hair products now I have to dig beeper with some of the items I get from them because I’ve never tried their curl defining items mostly gels and sprays. I’ve used Aussie before with my sew in but never my natural hair I’ll be trying that my next wash. Great post!

    I use a majority of these of these products on my hair.

  14. October 4, 2017 / 2:08 pm

    I don’t like to spend a lot on my shampoo and conditioner so this is perfect for me, I love aussie stuff 😀

  15. October 4, 2017 / 1:09 pm

    I love my EcoStyler gel. I’ve never tried Aussie products so I’ll have to check it out
