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.

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.

Natural Hair on the rise !

Flip through magazines and TV channels this month, and you’ll see coily, kinky and curly natural hair models in ads from Banana Republic to Gain detergent, from Home Goods to Kmart.

Natural hair has been a movement for several years. What we’re seeing now is a confirmation that this is a lifestyle that is very important to a lot of women,” says Cyntelia Abrams, marketing coordinator for Design Essentials, an Atlanta-based hair-care company that commissioned a 2010 study on the popularity of natural hair.

The number of black women who say they do not use products to chemically relax or straighten their hair jumped to 36% in 2011, up from 26% in 2010, according to a report by Mintel, a consumer spending and market research firm. Sales of relaxer kits dropped by 17% between 2006 and 2011, according to Mintel.

Taking Care of Black Hair

Hydrating and gentle products are best for Black Hair.

Black hair is more prone to dryness and breakage because of how the strands are structured.   The difference between Black hair and other hair types is that the strands can have twice as many outer layers or cuticles. The scalp’s natural oil secretions have a hard time reaching all the way to the end of their hair because of the coil patter of Black Hair. To help with this issue you should massage your scalp with a good natural oil every 3-4 days and work the oil all the way down to the tips of your hair to help protect it.

Since the products you use can help or harm your hair, invest wisely in the products you use and only choose those that are hydrating and gentle. Buy a shampoo and conditioner that has moisturizing ingredients such as wheat germ, jojoba oil and coconut oil.

The correct amount of shampoo and conditioner will help get the best hair possible. Over shampooing and under conditioning will cause damaged and  brittle hair.  Shampoo no more than once per week, and condition or moisturize every 3-4 days.  Make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly so you won’t have product build up in your hair or scalp.

Stay away from synthetic oils.  Be very picky about what types of products you use on your precious hair. Synthetic oils, like petroleum and mineral oil are known to dehydrate hair.

Following this advice will help give you a healthy head of hair you can be proud of.

Do You Care For Your Hair?

Nyesha Samuel, Publisher/Master Loctician for healthylocsblog.com

Kinky, coily, curly, napptastically natural; these are all words and phrases I’ve heard used to describe my year-old untamed mane. I say year old because it was only last July that I stopped putting chemicals on my hair and scalp completely. I cut the perms and relaxers (even color, farewell to my burgundy low lighted streaks) and completely let my tress grow to its now ferociously fabulous state. ‘Going natural,’ as it is often referred to has been one of the most enlightening and rewarding promenade I’ve had in my 21 years of life.

I’d liken the journey of going natural to falling in a deeply obsessive and unrelenting love affair, although I wasn’t always this smitten. When ‘they’, those ominously adept natural voices of the world, tell you going natural is a journey they aren’t kidding. No hyperbole here. You begin like a baby taking its first steps and end up like a long distance marathon runner with big brand name endorsements. Personally, my natural journey began by accident which made my transition between chemical and chemical-free rough to say the least (pun intended).

Though I may have enjoyed the convenience of having ‘relaxed’ straight hair, the chemicals had made it limp, unhealthy, and prone to breakage. Eventually I gave up on taking care of my hair all together and simply opted to wearing extensions. Turns out, I had them in for so long my perm simply grew out. No fuss, no harm; or so I thought. Little did I know I had missed a crucial in-between step of the process where you learn to manage your natural hair for the first time.
