There are some pretty universal hair tools that naturals need, no matter what the hair type, porosity, or thickness. Yes, our tresses are different, and yes we are all unique women, but as we have similar hair types, the tools to allow us manageability are oftentimes one in the same.

Our hair tends to curl or coil around itself which makes detangling challenging, and it certainly also makes hair length goals harder to obtain when our hair is not properly maintained. There is an art to caring for your tresses that requires certain techniques that allow for obtaining every hair goal you plan for yourself.
