Going Natural? A Guide to Find Your Perfect Match

Going Natural? A Guide to Find Your Perfect Match

How do you choose?

Picture this. You go to your favorite store or shop on your go-to website. You choose a hair care product that smells nice or seems to be the right one for you, only to get home and find out you’ve chosen wrong…again. It happens to the best of us.

There are so many amazing products out there that it’s hard to choose. Sometimes you might just pick the one that’s better for your curly-haired bestie instead of your own baby-fine hair.  But don’t worry. We’re going to make it super easy to choose the NYM product perfect for you.

Meet the Naturals

While we work hard to create many (many!) incredible products in the Not Your Mother’s line, we know that not every one will be ideal for your hairstyle or even your lifestyle.

Our hair experts came up with this guide to help you understand all the products in our Naturals line. Sure, the bottles are beautiful and the ingredients sound tempting, but read on to find the one that’s just right for you.

Weightless Hydration: Blue Sea Kale & Pure Coconut Water

If your hair is nearly perfect, you might want to give it a treat with Not Your Mother’s Blue Sea Kale & Pure Coconut Water Weightless Hydration Shampoo and conditioner. This incredibly sheer duo may not weigh a lot (well, we did call them weightless!) but they are a powerful cleansing and conditioning power duo. Use it when you want a small bit of moisture without a whole lot of extra product.

Scalp Refresh: Aquatic Mind & Coastal Sea Holly

Working out, summer sun, product buildup, and hair prone to the greasies might leave you with hair in need of a refresh. Not Your Mother’s Aquatic Mint & Coastal Sea Holly Scalp Refresh Shampoo and conditioner both work to clean your hair and scalp while leaving behind a cooling minty feeling. Ahhhh.

Ultimate Nutrition: Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom

Not Your Mother’s Matcha Green Tea & Wild Apple Blossom Ultimate Nutrition collection includes shampoo to cleanse and remove build up, conditioner to restore essential moisture, and a nutrient rich mask to revive parched- looking hair. Result? Hair that’s full of healthy shine!

Essential Moisture: Coconut Milk & Agave Nectar

We’re hesitant to say that we love one product line the best (since obvi, we love them all!) but using Not Your Mother’s Coconut Milk & Agave Nectar Essential Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner feels like taking a tiny vacation every time you lather up. Beyond the heavenly smell, this powerful restorative duo helps even dull-looking hair regain some wow. Your hair is detangled and looking lustrous in no time at all.

Superior Strength: Rice Water & Himalayan Moringa

Our protein rich formula means that shampooing (and conditioning!) your hair with Not Your Mother’s Rice Water and Himalayan Moringa Shampoo and Conditioner leaves hair both softer and stronger. If you feel like you could use an extra boost, try our Rice Water and Himalayan Moringa Superior Strength Protein Rinse which adds another layer of strength to even the thinnest hair. Use on freshly washed hair.  Divide your hair into sections and work through from roots to ends and then massage through. Allow product to work for up to 5 minutes before rinsing through. Pro tip: You can use NYM Protein Rinse before conditioning.  

Protect & Nourish: Royal Honey & Kalahari Desert Melon

Your hair is your crowning glory, and this regal collection helps you and your hair look amazing – tiara optional. Not Your Mother’s Royal Honey & Kalahari Desert Melon Repair & Nourish Shampoo , conditioner and leave-in conditioner have a single goal – to keep your tresses looking vibrant while building up your hair’s resiliency. Like all NYM products in the Naturals collection, they’re also gluten free, silicone free, dye free and naturally derived. What’s not to love?

Curl Definition: Tahitian Gardenia Flower & Mango Butter

Hey, curl, hey. We know how much you love to show off your curls, but there are times when your hair seems to have a mind of its own. In addition to shampoo and conditioner, the Tahitian Gardenia Flower & Mango Butter has two superhero products your hair will love. Not Your Mother’s Tahitian Gardenia Flower & Mango Butter Curl Definition Detangler is an after-shower spray that hydrates every single curl giving you a boost of shine and softness. And we really love the way Not Your Mother’s Tahitian Gardenia Flower & Mango Butter Curl Definition Combing Cream allows you to shape and reshape your curls. Simply work into damp hair and use a wide tooth comb to shape your gorgeous curls.
