Got Frizz? An Ultimate List Of Coconut-Free Hair Products (that work!)

Looking for coconut-free hair products? While most people thrive with coconut oil, some HATE it. Coconut is a moisturizing oil and is so popular in the curly community but it can cause some people’s hair to freak out. If you are unsure about this, lookout for signs really similar to protein overload: straw like, wiry, “dry” feeling, can feel brittle or stiff. If your hair just feels unmanageable no matter what you do, just avoid products with coconut in them to see a difference! Here are my tried and tested recommendations:

Disclaimer: Since I share so much about curly hair products, naturally my article will contain affiliate links to products I use and love. If you take action (i.e. make a purchase) after clicking on these links or use my code I earn coffee money! Which I promise to drink while creating more helpful content like this.

Note: the shampoos will always have coconut derivatives because coconut is the safest alternative for the harsh SLS ingredient and it’s okay for someone who is coconut-free because it’s going out of your hair; you are not leaving your shampoo in, so it is okay in my book! I just have a big problem with coconut oil.

  1. Hi Liz! Do you find that the ingredients “coconut cream” and “coconut milk” have the same negative effect on your hair as the ingredient coconut oil does?
    Thank you!

    1. Thank you for asking me Anna. I find coconut milk works for me, which is creamy, and coconut water also but I definitely breakout and my coarse hair goes stiff with any product with high amounts of coconut oil (I can get away with small quantities so it really depends on the product formulation) Overall, best results only with coconut oil-free products for me.
