1) Spray Bottle

The spray bottle is used to rehydrate the hair. It allows you to shape, moisturize, and stretch hair without soaking or re-wetting the whole head.  You can more evenly distribute your moisturize when applying with a spray bottle. Its perfect for moisturizing and re-twisting the hair daily before bed.  You can also use your spray bottle in styling your hair.

2) Tail comb

 The Tail Comb has a combing region of closely-spaced teeth at one end and a long thin “tail-like” handle. The tail is used for separating and sectioning the hair for various styling processes, from roller sets to braiding.

3)  The Wide-Tooth Comb comes in a variety of sizes and shapes. It is generally larger than the styling comb and can have teeth that are as much as 1/4 to1/2 inch apart. In many cases the teeth are wider at the spine of the comb and taper toward the ends to aid in separating the hair. A wide-tooth comb is good for combing through wet hair and for combing dense or curly hair.

4) Hair Clip

This is a simple plastic hair clip that helps pull your hair back and secure it in place. You can use a clip to create a variety of styles, including a classy ponytail, a curly updo or a 3-D braid. Banana clips work best on hair that’s shoulder-length or longer.

5) Bobby pins

This is a simple straight forward tool. You just pop it into your nappy natural hair, off you go!

6) Hair Brush

hairbrush is a stick brush with rigid or soft bristles used in hair carefor smoothing, styling, and detangling human hair, or for grooming an animal’s fur. It can also be used for styling with a curling iron or blowdryer.
7) Scissors
Scissors is used to trim split ends.
If your hair is snapping off or you notice easy breakage when detangling then you have to trim your ends to reduce breakage.
Don’t bother about the length, just an inch off and your hair is renewed
8) Headband
Headbands are a clothing accessory worn in the hair or around the forehead, usually to hold hair away from the face or eyes. Headbands generally consist of a loop of elastic material or a horseshoe-shaped piece of flexible plastic or metal. They come in assorted shapes and sizes and are used for both fashion and practical/utilitarian purposes.

9) Shower cap
This is needed during deep conditioning, the hair has to be covered then sit under a steamer for 20 to 30, a steam cap relies on the use of steam to send moisture into the cuticle of your hair.

10) Hair Scarf (Satin )
It’s Obvious we naturalistas don’t wear our hairs every time, sometimes you just have to freestyle. You can pack your hair with scarf depending on the style of your choice.
Although most women go to bed with their hair simply down or in ponytail, sleeping with scarf (satin) can help maintain healthy hair
