Relaxers Linked To Fibroids

Being that our skin is the largest organ on our bodies it make sense that putting something as harmful as a relaxer on your scalp would cause internal damage to your body as well.  There have been many studies over the years speaking on the damage that relaxer do to your hair but this one is especially scary.  Is looking “cute” really worth risking your life ?!  If you’re already natural good for you, but if you read this and currently have a relaxer I would stop putting that in your scalp right away.  Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

A new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology has linked hair relaxers to uterine fibroids, as well as early puberty in young girls.

Scientists followed more than 23,000 pre-menopausal Black American women from 1997 to 2009 and found that the two- to three-times higher rate of fibroids among black women may be linked to chemical exposure through scalp lesions and burns resulting from relaxers.

Women who got their first menstrual period before the age of 10 were also more likely to have uterine fibroids, and early menstruation may result from hair products black girls are using, according to a separate study published in the Annals of Epidemiology last summer.

All Natural Black Hair Care Products

Black hair is among the most difficult to maintain due to its structure, but all natural black hair care products can ease the difficulty to an extreme. The tight, corkscrew shape that black hair naturally has leads to many problems with dryness and breakage making the kind of hair care products chosen all the more important for healthy, appealing hair. There are plenty of products to choose from for good hair care to be normal but there are certain ingredients in regular black hair care products that can actually lead to a dryer head of hair and make the already prominent breakage problem all the worse.

In a lot of average hair care products there are sulfates all throughout the inside of the product itself. Sulfates are the problem as they exacerbate the issues that come with having the dense textured hair that is so common through all black hair. Because of this denseness oil cannot saturate the follicle thus drying out the entire length of the hair, sulfates dry out the follicle even more something that you don’t want for healthy hair without breakage. This is where all natural black hair care products come in to save your glorious mane.

Facebook

With over 800 million users worldwide, Facebook has become the most popular social network and is an integral part of life for many people. The sheer number of people it connects on a daily basis is a great tool for the natural hair community.

Many bloggers, vloggers, stylists and natural hair professionals utilize Facebook to supplement their websites and channels. Many curlies turn to the Facebook community for inspiration, motivation and to give or seek advice. Not only does it allow you to stay informed about the latest and greatest products or techniques, upcoming natural hair expos and other social events, you can also stay in touch with people that you meet at these functions.

I think building that network and connecting with people is probably the greatest thing about Facebook and the natural hair community.

Night Time Natural Hair Care

Night time hair care is just as important as all other hair care, if not more. Not properly caring for your hair at night can compromise or defeat the purpose of all the other good hair care you give to yourself each day.

First, consider your current night time hair care regimen and compare that to your daily care. What do you do that is different? Sometimes we can take so much time and care in the primping portion of hair care that we omit some of the important things like wrapping the hair at night. If you are not a scarf wearer, you can opt for a satin bonnet, ‘do rag’, or satin pillow case.

Loose curls & Afros. If you are wearing an afro or loose natural style, even if you just tie it up at night, it may turn out very smooshed in the morning. What you can do to prevent this from happening is to section the hair, (no definition needed) and plait the hair in large plaits. This keeps the hair stretched and also makes it easier to sleep on-not worrying about actually smashing your fro. When you wake up in the morning, you can unfurl the plaits and pick your fro in place. You should have volume and manageable tresses.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice for Natural Hair Growth

The nice thing about maintaining healthy hair is that it gives us an opportunity to live a healthier lifestyle from the foods we eat to our daily exercise routine. It is important to note that healthy hair grows with the right products, so today I would like to share with you what has helped my hair grow longer and stronger on my natural hair journey.

After careful research I found that the PH balance of black hair must stay around 4.0 to 7.0 pH in order to avoid the hair shaft from becoming to far alkaline or acidic. Having the proper balance with the hair care products we use such as conditioners and shampoos will make a big difference between our hair being dry and brittle or soft and manageable.

For me I learned that the use of Aloe Vera Juice can actually help my afro texture hair cuticles to stay closed sealing in moisture. Once you start your natural hair journey and transition from relaxed hair one of the things you will notice is that moisture is the lifeline of growing longer stronger hair and retaining length.

Intensive moisturising a must for winter hair care

Ladies may have noticed their hair looking lacklustre and dry in recent months with the winter weather having taken its toll.

According to experts, the colder months of the year are when it is particularly important to look after tresses to avoid frizzy ends and drab tresses.

One of the best ways to keep hair shiny and appearing healthy is use intensive moisturizing treatments on a regular basis.

In an interview with the South Wales Echo, hairdresser Trystan Lewis explained how winter weather “plays havoc with your hair”.

Women may want to stock up on natural conditioner after the expert described how tresses need to be treated to an intensive hydrating session at least once a week.

Model Chrishell Stubbs loves natural hair care

Top model Chrishell Stubbs is a big fan of natural hair care, according to the Vibe Vixen website.

She’s modelled for some huge names including Ralph Lauren, Diane Von Furstenburg and Vivienne Westwood.

Her styles have changed but she has never relaxed or coloured her hair. “I live for Moroccan oil products and raw coconut oil,” she says.

When she’s not strutting her stuff on the runway, she prefers a simple wash and go, and at the moment her favourite hair style is fish tail braids.
