Natural Hair Report Card: Complete Summary
NATURAL HAIR REPORT CARD 2010
From September 2010-November 2010, I conducted a natural hair survey to find out what products are working for naturals. There were over 300 participants. I have compiled a list of the top ten picks in each category (Conditioners, Leave-in conditioners, Shampoos, Product lines, Moisturizers, Places to buy products, and Hair tools). Thanks to everyone who participated. If you didn’t participate this year, I hope you will participate in the Natural Hair Report Card for 2011.

Once again, I want to thank everyone who participated. I am aiming for even more participation next year. If you didn’t see your favorites this year, make sure you voice your opinions the next time to help those items make it to the list. Also, please share this post with anyone you know who is natural, transitioning, or considering going natural.
You see the categories for the 2010 survey. In the comments section, let me know any ideas you have for questions to include in the Natural Hair Report Card 2011. Thank you!
