The Best Hair Care Products for Black Women

Many black women have coarse, curly hair that is prone to frizziness, dryness and breakage. Fortunately, a number of hair-care companies have stepped up to the unique challenges of black hair care. Whether you straighten your hair, get weaves or go all natural, there are great products for your hair type available at all price points.

Shampoo

For hair that is very dry, look for a shampoo that is pH balanced; too much alkalinity can be damaging, especially to color-treated hair. Avoid shampoos containing alcohol, a major drying agent. Some black women choose shampoos that don’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which is the main detergent ingredient in most shampoos. Many natural and organic shampoos do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate. Consider only washing your hair every other day to help retain more of its natural moisture.

The tender haeedd thing, I noticed I’m more sensitive with locs too, I think because I don’t brush or comb my hair on a daily basis that my scalp is now sensitive to any form of tension. That’s my theory
