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.
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.
