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.

Fruity Hair Mask for Kinky, Curly, Coily Hair!

You see it on TV, movies, and magazines – the most lustrous, shiny, deliciously awesome and bouncy natural curls. You want your hair to look the same way, but don’t have the budget to put a professional stylist on your payroll.

There are many products out in the market for those of us looking to engage in natural hair care. Using a mask is only one solution. Drop the drugstore deep conditioning treatments – they don’t work as well as these do-it-yourself, all-natural hair mask ingredients. After all, why not feed your hair the same healthy foods that you feed the rest of your body?

https://i.ytimg.com/vi/yHvTFugLh_Y/maxresdefault.jpg

First, let’s go over the basics. There are key hair mask ingredients in every recipe, and each plays a very important role. So what you put into the hair mask for your kinky, curly, coily hair depends on the current health of your hair.

For example, for battling dry, damaged hair, use extra virgin olive oil and honey. Both key ingredients have restorative properties that add moisture to dry hair. If your hair is dry and dull, use honey. If it’s dry and damaged (like ramen noodles, for instance), use extra virgin olive oil.

For oily hair, use lemon as an astringent to get rid of excess oil. If you don’t want to lighten your hair color (lemon does this), you can dilute the lemon with water (use one-part lemon, two-parts water). If your hair breaks easily, add a little egg for a protein boost, which strengthens your locks.

If your hair is not too dry and not too oily, but still lacks that softness and shine, use coconut oil. If you want softer hair, use milk. If you have dandruff, a little apple cider vinegar will get rid of excess oils on the scalp and clear that flaky stuff right up.
Fruit is not only good for the body, but also for your hair. They are simply the best natural hair mask ingredients.

The next time you buy bananas, buy extra for your hair. Bananas are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, potassium, and natural oils. If you want to moisturize your hair and make it stronger to prevent breakage – and to get your curls to look bouncy – blend one or two overripe bananas with a teaspoon of coconut oil, a teaspoon of olive oil, and a tablespoon of honey. Slather the smoothie into your hair and let it settle for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and comb through. No need to shampoo out, but a second rinse might be necessary.

If your hair is on the oily side, make a strawberry hair mask for your kinky, curly, coily hair. Strawberries are loaded with vitamin C, which works to control oil production. Simply blend a handful of fresh strawberries (7-10 for shoulder-length hair) to 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1 tablespoon of honey. Apply evenly to damp hair and leave on for at least 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water, and voila! You have yummy-smelling, healthy, shiny hair!

Try one of these great hair mask and then leave a comment to let me know how it worked for your hair 🙂

What Makes Your Hair Healthy ? – Black Hair Care

While dealing with your hair, especially in its natural state, it’s vital that your priority be focused on what is healthy for your hair.  No matter how cute the style you should always ask yourself, what is the healthiest way that i can achieve this style without damaging my hair? Below is a great article on how to approach dealing with your hair from a healthy point of view vs just doing things because they’re cute.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think. 🙂

We understand that what we consume in food has a lot to do with the health of our skin and hair. But after attending and participating in workshops, it’s amazing to see the things that people will do to their hair in the name of beauty.

When you’re adding someone else’s hair to your scalp, whether you’re sewing it in or gluing it in, it’s very interesting to see the type of trauma you’re infringing on your scalp, in the name of beauty.

Granted, not everyone is pro natural hair, but what makes that so?

What is it about your hair that you don’t like it in its natural state?

When you look at everything that you go through to get your hair healthy, you go through that same amount of trouble and trauma and more to destroy it.

If we take a survey of what happens to your scalp after you’ve glued or sewn in so many weaves, it would be really interesting to see the condition of your scalp.

Your Beautiful Black Hair; Have You Fed It Lately?

“You are what you eat” is how the saying goes. This is so true.  Your hair, skin and nails will definitely reflect what’s going on inside of you.  Below is an article that does a great job of telling you what you need to do internally to have healthy hair. Leave a comment and let me know what you think 🙂

http://blog.unicasport.com/wp-content/uploads/Four-effective-and-healthy-food-choices.jpg

Blame it on a terrible cut or the weather even, but the real culprit behind consistently bad hair days may be what you’re eating.

Just as what you eat affects the way your skin and body look and feel, the same rules apply to your beautiful black hair.

A lot of you underestimate the importance of what you eat when it comes to maintaining healthy hair.

The first step to getting a healthier head of hair is changing what you eat. This can be as simple as cutting out foods that provide no nutritional value and by adding foods with essential vitamins, healthy fats and proteins.

Did you know that by eating the right foods, you can actually prevent the natural color and shine in your hair from fading and looking dull?

9 Natural Tips that Give Hair Growth a Boost

Our hair is an important part of our personality. It frames our face and lustrous, healthy hair adds to the overall beauty. In earlier days poor hair growth and hair loss were normally associated with aging, but with our busier than ever lifestyles, poor diet choices and all the styling products hair problems are faced by everyone. Don’t we all envy women with long, lustrous hair? Well, these women understand the basics of hair care. What are they; don’t we all want to know that?

The best products when it comes to hair growth tips are the natural products. Chemical laden products and styling tools are the main culprit behind rough, unhealthy hair. If you’ve been trying to grow your hair for some time, it’s time to say good bye to all those and start using some of nature’s gifts. Read on to find out how you can give your hair growth a boost by using some natural tips.

 

1)Coconut Oil

Image result for coconut oil

Coconut is one of nature’s best gifts. Its benefits were unknown for a long time, but recently the beauty gurus cannot stop raving about its benefits. It is rich in potassium, iron and essential fatty oils. Massage your hair from roots to tips with this oil, leave it in your hair for at least an hour or two and rinse. You will see a difference after the first application. It gives instant shine to hair and moisturizes your scalp. The potassium and the iron help in the hair growth. If you don’t have a lot of time on your hands put it at least half an hour before your shower. Try doing this 2-3 times a week.

2)Onion Juice

Image result for onion juice

Onions!! You might say, yes smelly but very effective. As we grow old our hair loses the natural collagen, onion has a high sulphur content which boosts the production of collagen tissues naturally. It also makes hair bouncy and adds a fabulous sheen to your hair.

You can use onion juice in two ways. Grate 2-3 onions and blenderize them. Then strain the juice out. Massage your scalp with this juice and leave it in hair for at least 2 hours. Rinse with a mild shampoo. If you can’t do this every time you need to wash your hair; chop a big onion into very fine cubes. Add this to the bottle of your shampoo; leave it for fifteen days, before you start using this shampoo. Use it like your normal shampoo, massaging it well into your scalp and follow with a conditioner.

It might get a while to get used to of the smell, but the benefits of this all natural remedy are immense.

 

3)Potato juice

 Image result for potato juice

Yes, another vegetable and this one doesn’t stink. Potatoes are rich in Vitamin A, B and C. Potatoes are a great source of minerals and rich in a substance called alopecia, this helps in new hair growth. Potato juice improves the overall health of your scalp and makes your hair shiny and healthy. You can simply grate a potato, squeeze out all its juice and massage it onto your scalp. Leave it in hair for at least an hour or two before rinsing off.

You can even make a mask using pulp of three potatoes, one egg and two tablespoons of honey. Leave in hair for at least an hour before rinsing off.

 

4)Egg Mask

Women with beautiful hair from all parts of the world have been benefiting from this gift of nature. Eggs are an excellent source of protein. Protein escalates new hair growth. They are also rich in iron, sulphur, phosphorus and zinc. Eggs by themselves can be a bit drying. It is a good idea to make a mask with eggs using one egg, adding a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of honey to it. Off course you can double the quantity to cover your hair completely from roots to tips.

The mask penetrates deep into the scalp and invigorates your follicles. This gives a boost to hair growth. Try using this mask at least once a week. Leave it on for at least 20 minutes; try covering your hair with a hot towel for added benefits. This is your all natural DIY protein treatment which is a lot cheaper and much effective than what you pay for at the saloon.

 

5&6)Yogurt and Banana Mask

Another DIY home remedy which repairs sun damaged or chemically treated hair is a banana and yoghurt mask. Why? This is because bananas are rich in minerals and iron. Yoghurt is an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus and Vitamin A. honey is another one of nature’s gifts with immense benefits. Take a banana squash it and whisk it together with about a cup of yoghurt, add a tablespoon of honey and whisk it more. You can also add a few drops of lemon juice and olive oil to this mask. Apply it generously to hair, covering your whole crown. Leave it for at least an hour before you rinse off. This mask has a cooling effect and is great for those summer months. Regular use of this does wonders to your hair.

 

7)Indian Gooseberry

Indian gooseberry (or Amla) can be safely called the powerhouse of nutrients. It accelerates hair growth like nothing else. If you are unfamiliar with this fruit, don’t worry it is easily available in powder form. It can reverse premature graying and helps in maintaining the overall health of scalp.

 

  • If you have the fresh fruit available take 5-6 of these gooseberries and cook it with 250 ml coconut oil. The oil will become dark in color. Take out the gooseberries and let the oil cool. You can apply this oil whenever you want to. Leave it in your hair for at least two hours before rinsing off.
  • Some women even make a tea out of gooseberry powder, by boiling a tablespoon of the powder in 2 cups of water. Let it cook for about fifteen minutes. When washing your hair rinse it in end with this water.

 

8)Fenugreek Seeds

Image result for fenugreek seeds

This golden seed has been part of the beauty rituals of women from South Asia, Middle East and Africa for centuries. It promotes healthy hair growth and escalates hair growth. You can make a mask of the fenugreek seed. We are giving you two very easy methods

 

  • Take about a teaspoon of fenugreek seed powder; mix it with enough coconut oil to form a thick paste. Apply it to the scalp. Massage gently using your fingertips. Leave in hair for at least an hour and before washing off.
  • Another way to use this is by adding a tablespoon of the powder to 200 ml of yoghurt, and add some olive or coconut oil to this. Apply this mixture to your roots and scalp. Leave it for at least half an hour. Wash with slightly warm water, and see your hair transform after 3-4 applications.

 

 9)Green Tea

Image result for green tea

Green tea is rich in antioxidant properties. It removes product buildup and stimulates a healthy scalp. You can use stewed green tea to rinse your hair with as an after-wash rinse.

Another way to use it is by applying slightly warm tea from used tea bags to your hair directly. Instead of squeezing the bags in the cup, do that on your hair. It works as a great all natural leave-in conditioner.

 

10)Apple Cider Vinegar

Image result for apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar promotes hair growth by maintaining the pH level of your scalp and removing any product buildup. It cleanses the hair thoroughly. All you have to do is use it as an after-wash rinse. Add 2 tablespoons of ACV to 2 mugs of water, and if you are bothered by the smell of it add a few drops of lavender oil to this rinse. This adds instant bounce and shine to your hair. After a few rinses you will feel the lost luster coming back.

You can chose to use any one or even try combining two or more of these remedies. There are going to be no side effects, just benefits as these are all natural products. Remember, these tips are to give your hair growth a boost and not magic. You will see the results with a little persistence but once you see the results of your hard work you will be hooked on to these. Good luck!

Healthy Scalp, Healthy Locs

Like many women, I knew during my pregnancy that I was going to need a low maintenance hairstyle when it was time to welcome my baby. Going natural and giving your hair the love and attention it needs is a long journey, and I didn’t want it to suffer any neglect while I was busy with new mommy responsibilities! So with the support and help of the talented Kari Williams of Mahogany Hair Revolution, I was able to protect my natural hair and sport a new style for summer.
1. Its a protective style. Obviously the big draw to braids is that it’s a protective style. What makes me flock to a protective style right now is the fact that during pregnancy and afterward you can lose hair. Braided hair helps keep that from happening as well as helping to prevent breakage, which I’ll talk about next.

Royals: The Locumentary

Hello Healthy Locs Family 🙂
Below is a letter and a video clip i received from a young up and coming filmaker named Doh Tarr. I’m a documentary lover and i hope most of you are also. Please take the time to check out his trailer and donate to his project if you can.

Healthy Scalp, Healthy Locs

Nyesha Samuel, Publisher/Master Loctician for healthylocsblog.com

 

Good afternoon,

My name is Doh Tarr. I am a filmmaker from Atlanta, GA. I started locking my hair in February of 2013. I refer to that moment as one of the best life decisions I have made to this date. Since wearing my locs I have seen that there is an ignorance of locs and of the people that choose to wear their hair in this manner. The news and media likes to only show the negative side of it because that is a more popular story. The story of the guy who is a great person and very successful and has locs is not an uncommon story, but it is seldom told. I plan on changing that.

ROYALS: The Locumentary is the name of the documentary that I am currently working on. It will address: the different reasons why people decide to grow locs, and individuals sharing their experiences during their own loc journey. Also, it will address the stereotypes and stigmas of locs and the people who wear them and what can be done to reverse some of these negative stereotypes. This story will shed light on the individuals who wear locs in the US and the great things that they are trying to accomplish in life because they dawn the hairstyle of kings and queens of the past (ROYALS).

So far we have raised a total of $11,116 of the $56,000 needed to put this film into production, so I am emailing your business for a donation so you can be apart of the revolutionary film that will help to be the solution to the ignorance instead of adding to the problem. As of right now the plan for this film is that it will be played for theaters in 3 days in Atlanta, 3 days in Washington D.C., and 3 days in New York. After those theatrical releases the film will be on streaming services like Netflix and the Urban Movie Channel. We are also currently working on a deal to get the film on Georgia Public Broadcast television and ROYALS will also make rounds in the film festival circuit being played at different festivals across the nation and even some internationally. This is just the basic plan that I have for distribution of the film with the funds received, but obviously, if the film receives the critic acclaims like it can it will be a much bigger release that will be seen by a lot of people.

The trailer for ROYALS: The Locumentary is up on https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/doh/royals-the-locumentary. Watching that shows some of the interviews that I have already done and gives you a slight idea of how the full-length film will be. Please spread the word and donate if you are able and are interested. Anything helps. Thank you for your time.

Natural Care for Natural Hair

If you prefer to wear your hair in a natural way you will have some great styling options to express yourself with.

Natural Hair

Wearing your hair natural is great. Some will prefer to keep their hair more natural via wash n gos, twist outs or braids.  Others will prefer to style with a straightening comb or a flat iron. Go with whatever makes you more comfortable.

Whichever you prefer to wear, you will want the proper hair products to care for your hair. Natural shampoos are made to be milder than others, since they are formulated with natural hair ingredients instead of harsh additives. These shampoos will moisturize your scalp with herbal or organic ingredients, and this will keep your hair follicles nourished and your scalp hydrated.

Natural African American hair will benefit from the use of natural shampoos and conditioners. They promote a healthy amount of hair growth. The nourishing and stimulating ingredients are made to penetrate the roots, in the scalp, and they also provide your hair with amino acids, minerals and vitamins. These shampoos will help your hair strands to increase their thickness, and they make your hair stronger, overall.

 

Natural Shampoo

If you have curly hair, natural shampoo is best to help keep it manageable. Longer hair and/or curly hair is more prone to split ends and breakage, and damage, since the ends tend to be fine. Use whatever natural products your stylist recommends to maintain your healthy hair. Natural shampoos will help maintain curly or long hair.

When you select a natural shampoo, make sure that it contains quality organic ingredients. Many shampoos have additives and chemicals that can cause breakage and over-dry hair. Natural shampoos contain chemical-free, all-natural ingredients like soy protein, tea tree oil, lavender oils, coconut oil, Shea butter, lemon and aloe.

Depending on the type and brand of natural shampoo you buy, the ingredients will vary. The proper ingredients will help to leave your hair shiny and soft. They will also reduce the stress your scalp and hair can experience from heat treatments.

 

Herbal Hair Oil

The best herbal hair oil for your African American hair may have a combination of some or all of the more essential herbs, those being henna, hibiscus and amla, with oil from coconuts. This type of hair oil will add shine to your hair, and help it remain healthy.

Select a hair oil that contains herbs and oils known for helping your hair remain healthy. Coconut oil is helpful in conditioning your hair, and it can also allow your hair to grow more quickly. Amla herbal hair oil helps your hair shine, as well as cleansing the scalp and enhancing your curls. Henna will bind to your hair’s keratin molecules, and make each strand stronger.

What’s Inside Jamaican Mango & Lime

By Jocelyn Renee

Some professionals will tell you NOT to use the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel, while other Dreadheads will say it’s their favorite product; so who do you listen to? The facts.

Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel on the Shelves

When you pick up a jar of the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel you’ll see claims of “Long Lasting Hold” and “No Build Up” and the promise that it will “start and maintain locks and twists naturally”, yet when you look at the back of the jar the ingredients appear unnatural.

Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking GelBack of Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel

Personally, I can’t pronounce half of ingredients so I would put it back on the shelf but more than half of consumers do not read labels or research the ingredients. So let’s take a look at exactly what’s inside this yellow jar of locking gel.

Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel Ingredients

The 15 ingredients in the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel as listed on the label (July 2014) include:

Deionized Water, Polyquaternium 37, VPDMAPA/ Acrylate Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Proplyparaben, Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica), Lime Extract (Tilia Cordata), Virgin Coconut Oil (Coco Nucifera), Chlorophyll, Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinesis), Fragrance (Parfum), Yellow #10 (CI 47005), Red #33 (CI17200)

After reading that label, would you use it on your hair? Maybe.

But let’s read the ingredients list in terms of how “good*” they are for your hair.

Understanding What’s Inside Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel

It is assumed that the ingredients are listed in order of strength, from most concentration to least.

  1. Deionized Water– Good Ingredient – Used as a solvent.
  2. Polyquaternium 37– Cautionary Ingredient – Used to keep down fly-aways due to static electricity. Also used as a hair fixative, so this means it can build up in your hair with repeated use, making it sticky or crunchy.
  3. VPDMAPA/ Acrylate Copolymer– Cautionary Ingredient – Film-forming/ plasticizing polymer. Can build up and get sticky.
  4. Propylene Glycol– Cautionary Ingredient – Is a form of mineral oil, an alcohol produced by fermentation of yeast and carbohydrates. Humectant that is a clear, colorless, thick liquid that can also be used to dissolve ingredients and carry moisture in a product.
  5. Diazolidinyl Urea– Cautionary Ingredient – Preservative that has had some controversy for being a formaldehyde-releasing preservative that can cause skin irritation. Works best against molds and yeasts but it needs to be used with other preservatives, such as parabens.
  6. Methylparaben– Cautionary Ingredient – A food grade preservative that is potentially harmful.
  7. Proplyparaben– Cautionary Ingredient – A food grade preservative that is potentially harmful.
  8. Mango Butter (Mangifera Indica)– Okay Ingredient – Used for conditioning and as a humectant.
  9. Lime Extract (Tilia Cordata)– Avoid Using Ingredient – Can be drying to the hair and irritating to the scalp and it may cause skin irritation and/or sun sensitivity.
  10. Virgin Coconut Oil (Coco Nucifera)– Good Ingredient – Very good moisturizing oil. Can penetrate the cortex, so it may be able to make hair stronger.
  11. Chlorophyll– Okay Ingredient – Classified as not expected to be potentially toxic or harmful and its not suspected to be an environmental toxin.
  12. Green Tea Extract (Camellia Sinesis)– Good Ingredient – Green tea comes from the leaves of an evergreen bush or small tree from Asia. It is soothing and can reduce inflammation on the skin but it can’t do anything for the hair.
  13. Fragrance (Parfum)– Cautionary Ingredient – The word “fragrance” or “parfum” on the product label represents an undisclosed mixture of various scent chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate. Fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system.
  14. Yellow #10 (CI 47005)– Okay Ingredient – Yellow food coloring found in products for teeth, bath products, conditioners, and shampoos.
  15. Red #33 (CI17200)– Okay Ingredient – Red coloring ingredient used in lipstick and blush.

Professional Recommendation

I would not recommend using the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel in locs because it can cause build up in the locs, as identified within the first 3 ingredients, and there are many additives in the gel that are not beneficial to the hair Additionally, the Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel also contains a lot of parbens which are known carcinogens.

Loc Maintenance Product Recommendation

There are a couple of commercially available and holistic products to use instead of Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel. I personally would recommend using either of the following products:

Homemade Aloe Vera Gel
Homemade Flaxseed Gel
“Shine & Define” by OyinHandmade

*Also “Tropical Hair Butter” by Nyraju Skin Care

Taliah Waajid World Natural Hair Show October 2014

Hello everyone.  Ok,  so I know the show was two weeks ago but I’ve been so swamped with hair clients that this is the first chance I’ve had to post anything about the show.  So here it goes…… I had a blast!!  I hadn’t been to the show in a few years and was excited to get back in the mix.  Thankfully this time i was invited back as part of a class that was taught by my mother, Juliette Samuel (esthetician/aromatherapist of Nyraju Skin Care) and Delbra Morris (aromatherapist of Aromatherapy Essentials).  The class was Aromatherapy and Essential Oils for Natural Hair Care.  We had a great amount of attendees for both our Saturday and Sunday classes.  Class got so good at one point that Delbra ended up doing a reflexology demonstration with essential oils as well 🙂 I’m excited to let you know that we will be back with a class for the show in April 2015.  I will of course keep you all posted on the dates as I receive them. Below are some pics from our class.

In between classes i had the chance to walk the show floor a bit and saw Lyfe Jennings perform for a bit. I also had the pleasure of meeting the inventor of the Q Redew.  Her name is Heidi Schmid.  Its a fantastic styling tool for all hair types but especially 3b-4c.  It helps to add moisture to your hair and gives you the chance to reshape it in between shampoo days. Below are more photos from the show itself.

If you attended the show leave a comment and let me know what you thought about it 🙂
