How To Take Care of Black Hair? Check out a Quick and Easy Cheat Sheet
How to take care of black hair to protect my health and wellbeing?
It’s a question that many black women, across the world, have long searched for an answer to.
Good hair health is especially important for black women, however, in recent history we have relied on science just to get our hair to a manageable state.
Just check fashion magazines over the years which shows you how black hair was represented:- long and straight, long and wavy etc.
Rarely would you see a natural afro!
The problem is that to achieve, for example, the long and straight “look” could be hazardous to your health and wellbeing.
We are now more aware of chemical relaxers and other such hair products, and their link to common conditions in Black Women such as Fibroids.
Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that grow in or around the womb (uterus)
Fibroids symptoms can be life changing and include abdominal pain, anaemia and, in the worst case, infertility.
So, it makes sense to only use black hair products that limit your chances of fibroid growth and being dominated by fibroid symptoms
Take care of Black Hair using healthier hair care products
Taking care of black hair means using more natural and chemical free ingredients that add moisture and conditions hair but will not strip out its natural oils.
Such ingredients include Coconut Oil, Jojoba and Aloe Vera.
Hair care products to avoid.
Chemical based and although effective at quick straightening of black hair, however, these products should be avoided as they contain substances that can cause harm to health and wellbeing.
As well as disrupting hormonal balance (a known cause of Fibroids), some of these substances are also linked with health issues such as cancer.
Examples of these substances to watch out for on product labels include Parabens and Sulfates.
