Black Hair Care - Tips for Caring them

A diet with a lot of vegetables and foods high in Vitamin A, C, B Complex, Iron, Iodine and Copper is very beneficial for the healthy hairs. Hair does not turn gray with age, it actually loses color due to the lack of new color pigment in each strand of hair. There is no right answer for how often you should wash your hair, this varies for each individual. Using too much shampoo will strip natural oils from your hair and contribute to breakage and flyaways.

Black hair also typically has a larger diameter than caucasian hair and retains less water, thus its relative "kinkiness." There is no chemical difference in the makeup of African-American hair in comparison with any other hair type. It has a cuticle, a cortex, and a medulla. All these parts are identical to those of caucasian hair.

Hair seaweed is also known as black flossy moss, black moss or black hair, these fine threads of black dried vegetable resemble hair and is tasteless. Black moss grows in the desert. It contains much protein, carbohydrates, some phosphorus, iron and potassium.

The parts that make up your hair are:

Cuticle: Outer layer of the hair. It is made up of layers of scales which interlock with the cells of the hair's inner root sheath to firmly anchor it in the follicle.  This is a thin and colorless layer.  Black hairs cuticle layer can be twice the thickness of that of white hair.

Cortex: The middle layer. It is composed of cells which are tightly bound around one another. These bands provide the hair with elasticity and strength and are very receptive to chemicals.  As a result, they can easily be influenced (or damaged) by dyes and relaxers.

Melanin: is contained in the cortex and is the substance that determines the color of our hair and skin. The more melanin, the darker the hair or skin.

Follicle: This is the name for hair before it emerges from the skin. Follicles are composed of many elements including carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Healthy amounts of these elements can improve the hairs' condition and appearance once it emerges.

Black Hair Care Tips:-

A healthier lifestyle will result in healthier hair:-

  • Massaging your scalp on a regular basis will stimulate oil production, which will help reduce the dryness of your hair.
  • If you have curly black hair, use a wide-toothed afro comb and if you have relaxed black hair, use a natural bristle brush.
  • Daily shampooing is not recommended, ethnic hair is dryer than other types of hair, shampooing strips away the oils from your hair so try shampooing once every 3 to 7 days instead.
  • Shampoo your black hair as often as you feel necessary but only lather once, using a small amount of shampoo. Rinse thoroughly. Towel-blot, don't rub hair.
  • If you engage in daily activities that cause you to sweat, it is recommended that you rinse your hair out with water and only use shampoo on occasion, but if you feel the need to use a mild shampoo, go ahead and do so.
  • Use a mild moisturizing shampoo with a low PH level when washing your hair.
  • An alternative to the silk pillowcase is to wear a silk or satin scarf over your hair before your sleep to prevent breakage. Avoid hair products that contain alcohol which dry out your hair.
  • Once a month try a hot oil treatment, which will lubricate dry scalp conditions as well as moisturize brittle black hair.
