Black hair is always assumed to be stronger than other types of hair. This however is a misconception that people have lived with over the years. This misconception can be attributed to the fact that most people in possession of black hair are considered hard-cores. Black hairs mostly grow in a curly manner that makes it have an irregular coiled wave patterns resembling a coiled string. This characteristic makes black hair hard to manage. Use of chemicals i.e. relaxers could help solve this problem since it gives a wide variety of options that can be used in styling the hair. These chemicals could however damage the hair especially those that are extremely curl because of their delicate nature.
Black hair care outside salons is therefore a vital activity. One should avoid wearing stuff that pulls the hair backwards from the face i.e. tight head bands or use of rubber bands. This is because pulling the hair backwards results in the breaking of the hair and backward receding of hairlines. It therefore worth identifying the areas of one’s scalp that have weak or strong hair. This helps in determining the time spent processing the hairs in those areas. While most cases of baldness are attributed to genetic issues, it can also be caused by wrongful use of hair chemicals.
Black hair care therefore entails conditioning, styling, proper drying and shampooing of the hair regularly. This prevents hair breakage and promotes new hair growth.
