Common Problems Solved by Using Natural African American Hair Care Products



African American hair has its own texture and thus, its own set of challenges. Fortunately, the challenges faced are not the kind that cannot be dealt with easily through the use of the right products. These range from natural hair care treatments, relaxed hair treatments to inexpensive home remedies. The choice of what to use should depend on the desired results.

One of the most common challenges faced by African American hair is fly-a-ways, which are strands of hair that wave out of place. These are caused by static electricity that lifts the hair in all directions. The static electricity is normally brought on by friction from brushing your hair and the strands of hair rubbing against each other. To prevent flyaway hair, do not comb too often and avoid rubbing your hair when drying it after you shampoo. Another foolproof way to solve the static electricity is to use a strong conditioner.

Conditioners and hair softeners are vital among the African American hair products. They not only bring the shine but they also make sure that the hair becomes soft to the touch. Using a conditioner coats your hair, making it slippery and adding insulation. Thus, the friction and static electricity is lessened. For added protection, silicone serums are often added to products used on African American hair.

Many African Americans complain that their hair is dry and frizzy. However, it is just as prone to being greasy so this is another challenge that should be solved by African American hair products. Most of the products that are available in the market contain lanolin, cocoa butter, and other kinds of waxes and oils.

These can build up on your scalp and hair, making it greasy. In worst scenarios, the buildup can stunt the hair growth. Remove the excess products by using a clarifying shampoo once a week and lessen the amount of product used on your hair.

Hair procedures like bleaching and dyeing can make your hair course and damaged. In order to remedy this, use a mild shampoo and a strong conditioner. Avoid washing your hair daily.

Yes, some of us have taken on the belief that we should shampoo daily and instead do so only when it is necessary. Deep conditioning treatments that range from hot oil treatments to the application of olive oil on your hair can be used. If possible, do it once a week to prevent further damage and restore the life back into the damaged hair.

Just as in black skin care, your beautiful tresses need a black hair care regimen. Whether itís natural, relaxed or you wear locs, thereís nothing like a good shampoo and conditioning regimen at least once a week.

There was a time when we might have stretched this out to two or three weeks but in light of the elements, bad food and stress our hair needs a little more attention in order to keep it healthy, radiant and luxurious is its appearance.
