Natural African American Hair Care

African American hair, like all other hair types, needs proper care to keep it healthy. However, it may require a little more effort because its structure makes it more delicate.

Contrary to the belief that African American hair is stronger than its counterparts, it is actually more prone to damages because the ends of the hair do not get as much natural oils as they should. Here are a few natural African American hair care basics to guide you and it is easy to remember. You just have to spell the word NATURAL!

N - Nutrition. What you take in your body in general is just as important as what you apply on your hair. Load up on proteins and B-Vitamins because these groups are specifically good for the hair. But don't forget other nutrients as well because the lack of a particular group can lead to hair loss, dandruff and other problems. Partner good nutrition with lots of water to keep your hair hydrated.

A - Alcohol. Alcohol-based products can dry your scalp, in the same way as drinking alcohol dries your skin. Avoid alcohol or limit intake and application.

T - Tie it! Tie your hair with a smooth piece of fabric like a satin or silk scarf before going to bed. It will protect your hair from rubbing against harsh surfaces (even cotton bedding can be harmful to your hair) and minimize tangles.

U - Untangle with a wide-toothed comb if your hair is wavy or curly. Also, untangle while conditioning your hair so you wont put pressure on your scalp and avoid hair breakage.

R - Relaxing, rebounding and other hair treatments using strong chemicals should only be avoided but if done, done by qualified professionals. They can correctly assess if your hair can withstand the treatment or not.

A - Acidifier. An acidifier is a low pH conditioner (less than 7) that removes tangles and grease and improves the hair's natural sheen. This is best for chemically treated hair because it closes the cuticles that chemicals leave open and vulnerable to dirt and damages.

L - Leave-in conditioner is a necessity for curly or kinky hair but straight or wavy hair can benefit from it too. Look for an organic or 100% natural African American hair care product for better and more Eco-friendly conditioning. Also, apply a deep conditioning treatment regularly, more frequently for drier hair.

What's your greatest skin care challenge?

As women and a growing number of men of color, what's your greatest skin care challenge? Whether it's dark spots, uneven skin tone, dark circles,puffiness under your eyes or hair that won't grow, you'll find a product that can possibly become the solution to your challenge.

Moisturizers and ingredients that hydrate your skin will always be your best friend, for your face, body and hair. So look for products with nourishing and nurturing ingredients. Shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter and jojoba oils are a few of the ingredients to keep on your list.

We've got new additions to our store for you. Essential oils have been known to help calm and soothe skin and scalp irritations. Although you'll find a sample kit on the hair category page, you can use them for any of your skin and hair care needs.

The hair care sample kit has been given an upgrade. We've increased the size of the container on the shampoo and conditioners and added a hair butter sample to the mix.

Although there's beauty in your blackness, your skin is sensitive and needs protection from the sun just like everyone else. So if you know you're challenged by sunburn, add a few drops of Lavender essential oil to Jojoba and Grapeseed Oil and create a nice body oil for yourself. It will bring comfort and beauty back to your skin.

We're listening to you and your suggestions, so keep an eye on the category pages and your emails for updates.
