In thinking of African American hair beauty, you will want to use herbal hair products with natural and/or organic ingredients to keep your hair healthy and strong. Be sure to avoid chemical and synthetic ingredients, so that you won’t be causing a build-up of unnatural product in your hair.

Hair Beauty

 Having true hair beauty is not an accident. Genetics play a part in the way your hair tends to grow and act, but you can do some things yourself to insure that your African American hair will look its best. If you have even average hair quality, you can help your hair by using natural products. If your hair is in poor condition, it may take days or weeks to see a real difference, cowashing  and conditioning can help your hair to become healthy and shiny again.

Regular shampooing is also healthy for your hair depending on your hair type.  Over-shampooing can tend to pull oils from your hair that it needs to maintain hair beauty if you have type 3a-4c hair. You can use different shampoos and see which one works best with your hair’s pH balance. Alternating shampoos may give you the best results. Conditioners can be varied each week, as well. You can help your hair’s health and vibrancy by using conditioners with different pH levels, in an effort to balance your own.

Over-brushing your hair and over-styling is also damaging to your hair at the basic level. African American hair beauty depends on brushing that is adequate to distribute the oils, but you may damage the ends if you brush too much. Your hair will need trimming more often if you over-brush or over-style. I have found finger combing or finger detangling to cause the least stress on my hair.

Herbal Hair Products

Herbal hair products are designed to clean and condition your hair without harsh chemicals, synthetics and preservatives. Nature provides the earth with many herbs, flowers, roots and plants that are rich in minerals, proteins, enzymes and vitamins, which all will add to the health of your hair. Blended together, the resulting products will be a natural and organic alternative to chemicals.

Using shampoos and conditioners with no heavy metals or preservatives allow these herbal hair products to properly treat African American hair. The manufacturers of these products do not use genetically manipulated substances or mineral oils and chemicals; they use all natural ingredients to provide proper hair care.

Natural / Organic Shampoos

 

If you are looking for products to safely and effectively clean your African American hair, you’ll want to select an all natural shampoo. Organics are an excellent way through which you can give your scalp and hair a natural cleaning. Natural products are abundant on the market, but be sure to read the label ingredients and make sure the product you buy is free of chemical additives.

Beauty product manufacturers can’t just attach an “organic” label on their shampoo. The product has to be at least seventy percent organic in order to truly be an organic choice. Some organic shampoos may be difficult to lather, because the ingredient that helps build a lather is not a natural one. This ingredient, sodium lauryl sulfate, may dry out your scalp and your hair, and is the reason why your eyes burn if you get shampoo in them while you’re washing your hair. It’s not that hard to get used to less lather if it means healthier hair.

Natural shampoos for African American hair will add nutrients to your hair in ways that are gentle for your scalp and hair. Jojoba oils and coconut oils can be helpful ingredients in an herbal shampoo. Organics and herbals treat your hair to great cleansing with no harmful effects.

 

Herbal Conditioners

Hair conditioning with natural hair care products for African American hair is important for your overall look, and for the health of your hair and scalp. Natural ingredients can give you excellent results, and you can make your own products at home that can be beneficial as well.

Knowing or learning how to best care for your hair will probably involve using natural hair care products, because they are safer for your hair and gentler on your scalp. If you choose to add color to your hair, use an herbal or natural hair color product, since these aren’t harmful. Select a hair style or cut that flatters the lines of your face. Ask a stylist to help you define the type of cut would be most flattering for you. Seek out knowledgeable friends and stylists to help you select natural hair care products that will show off your hair to its best advantage.
