ph balanced stylers for natural hair

FTC: This post is not sponsored but does contain affiliate links. My thoughts and opinions are my own. 

We’ve discussed the importance of balancing the pH of your hair a few times this year. Why? Because it is just that important. We’ll spare you the extra long deets this time around! You can read up about balancing the pH of your natural hair here, and find 10 ph Balanced products for your natural hair (shampoos, conditioners…the whole nine yards) I told you… we’ve got you covered.

But this post specifically was requested a few times and I myself was curious about the variety of stylers specifically were geared towards being pH balanced. That usually isn’t the first priority in releasing a hair product, and certainly not a natural hair product. Usually most companies focus on one of two things: moisture or protein. While balancing both of those components out in your natural hair journey is crucial, the third and final key to success in your natural hair journey is having hair that is balanced from within. That is where pH comes in.

The ten products mentioned below, I’ve dabbled in about 8 of them so I stand behind what they can and will do for your hair if used properly. So here’s our list of the 10 best pH balanced stylers for your natural hair. Be sure to check out the ingredients as well for possible allergies or specific ingredients you know don’t do well in your hair.
