Finding hair products that work on type 4c hair can be both difficult and frustrating. I know that for many of you who have been following my journey from outside of North America, sourcing natural hair products has been challenging. It’s because of this that I compiled a list of international vendors that sell ingredients and products similar to those that I use.
This is a list for those that enjoying making their own hair products and for those that prefer to buy ready-made.
Since clay washing has been of particular interest to my online friends, I have kept my focus on retailers that stock bentonite clay. The list also includes local vendors that sell carrier oils, natural butters, as well as some of the more popular North American and local natural hair care lines.
Please note: I am not in collaboration with nor receiving compensation from any of the listed retailers. I also do not endorse any of the brands carried by the companies below. The list is strictly for reference purposes only. If you have any vendors that you would like to add to this list or if you do not see your country listed, please feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments box or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
