The Best Hair Growth Products for Men with Curly Hair

Best hair growth products for men with curly hair.

If you have curly, kinky, or wavy natural hair, finding the right hair care products can be a challenge. With so many different products on the market, it can be hard to know which ones will work for your hair type and texture.

Different hair types often require different products, regimens, styling techniques, and even washing and styling time. Luckily, we've done the research for you and compiled a list of the best of our hair growth products for men with curly hair. 

We offer a wide range of products that help promote natural hair growth. Our SCurl line is formulated with powerful natural hair solutions that work to stimulate hair growth while recovering damaged hair and preventing natural hair breakage. 

At the core of your hair growth is the health of your follicles and scalp. Keeping your scalp free from dirt, oils, and product buildup is a great start to achieving healthy hair growth. Just as cleaning and conditioning your hair is the first step in styling, it is also the first step in using the right products to help promote growth. 

Why is Cleansing Important?

The old myth that dirty hair grows faster is simply not true. Not washing natural hair for an extended period can result in the scalp being clogged with dirt, oil, and products and often triggers irritation instead of growth. Buildup on the hair and scalp can block the hair follicles from leaving the scalp and inhibit hair growth.  

Product buildup results when your styling products are continuously added to the hair without being removed. Product or oil buildup can cause curly hair to feel heavy, trigger dandruff, flakes, eczema, psoriasis, and again, slow hair growth. Outside of product buildup, the oils that the scalp naturally produces can also buildup on the scalp if not washed properly, causing the same effect. That's why it's crucial to find a natural hair care routine that works for you. 

The Best Shampoo to Grow Natural Hair

When cleansing, it is important to use a shampoo that is free of sulfates and parabens. Harsh chemicals like sulfates and parabens found in many shampoos can also deeply clean the hair; however, these formulas can be too abrasive to the scalp and can strip the hair of natural oils while causing dryness, irritation, and can trigger skin disorders. The best shampoos for natural hair growth are clean, effectively cleanse the hair and scalp, and are formulated with growth stimulating ingredients. 

Luster’s SCurl Free Flow Charcoal Mint Shampoo enriched with activated charcoal, peppermint oil, and castor oil, works to deeply cleanse without stripping the hair and can help to stimulate natural hair growth. This hydrating and detoxifying shampoo is designed exclusively for men’s natural hair needs and works to balance moisture to restore dry hair. 


Features and Benefits:

  • Gentle sulfate-free formula
  • Activated Charcoal deep cleanses hair and scalp
  • Peppermint Oil helps soothe and moisturize dry, irritated scalp
  • Castor Oil and certified organic Olive Oil nourish and condition 
  • Balances moisture to restore dry hair 
  • Detangles
  • Ideal for all hair types and textures

Application and Usage

To cleanse the scalp, first, apply a dime-sized amount of shampoo to your scalp. Work the shampoo into the hair in a massaging motion. Gently scrub your scalp with your fingers or a scalp massager to rid the scalp of dirt, oil, or product buildup. For natural hair, it’s best to wash the hair typically once or twice per week. Overwashing can result in drying out the hair and scalp causing breakage and scalp irritation. 

The Best Ingredients to Grow Natural Hair 

The best ingredients in shampoos to grow natural hair must be stimulating without stripping the hair of its natural oils. While allowing oils to buildup on your hair and scalp can be detrimental to scalp and hair health, it is crucial to retain some natural oils your scalp produces to prevent breakage and excessive drying. 

Activated charcoal is a natural ingredient that can help promote hair growth. This natural detoxifying agent is known to improve circulation and stimulate hair follicles. Activated charcoal has been used for centuries to help people with hair loss and can help to remove toxins from the scalp and promote hair growth. 

Another key ingredient in stimulating natural hair growth is Peppermint. This invigorating essential oil helps to calm and soothe redness while also working to help stimulate natural hair growth. 

Finally, also found in our Free Flow Shampoo is castor oil. Castor oil has also been said to help promote hair growth and works to add essential moisture to dry hair while preventing breakage. 


The Best Natural Hair Routine for Growth

The best natural hair routine begins with shampooing, conditioning, and then adding a leave-in conditioner. After shampooing with our Luster’s SCurl Free Flow Charcoal Mint Shampoo, rinse thoroughly and then apply your favorite wash-out conditioner. Conditioners help to restore the moisture lost from cleansing. Due to the coils of curly natural hair, it takes longer for the oils that the scalp naturally produces to travel down the hair shaft which can result in dry hair and cause breakage. Adding moisture by using rinse-out conditioners and leave-in conditioners can help to replenish moisture and retain hair length. 

The Best Leave-In Conditioners and Moisturizers for Natural Hair

The best leave-in conditioners hydrate and nourish the hair, leaving curls looking healthy and feeling soft. Our SCurl Leave-In Conditioner 

is a highly effective moisturizer for hair growth.

This highly effective leave-in conditioner is the perfect complement and follow-up product to the Free Flow Charcoal Mint Shampoo.
