KeraCare produces quality products for African American hair, especially if you have an itchy scalp from braids or hair weaves. However, their shampoos and conditioners tend to sometimes leave black hair dry and brittle, unless it is there detangling shampoo. As a result, although their products will help your scalp, they will leave your hair looking like you did it yourself. If you have a relaxer or chemically treated hair, and are use to using products like Elasta QP, Motions, or TCB, then it is long over due to make the switch to all natural hair care products.
Just because you buy natural hair care products does not mean you have to cut your hair and grow a mini afro or get dreads. You don’t need natural hair! There are several benefits of using all-natural hair care products, especially if you have relaxed hair. One of the best all-natural products on the market is Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead™ Silky Smooth System for Ethnic Hair. The shampoo and conditioner in the system are loaded with vitamins and natural oils that will not leave your hair dry like KeraCare, but instead will hydrate your follicles and nourish your roots. You can even use products like GodHead™ Max Moisture and Gro System to lengthen your hair and extend times between getting relaxers. You can find their products at wwwdiscoverb4acom
Here are the top five Hair Care Tips for Black Hair according to Hollywood’s Celebrity Stylist Michelle Vincent.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 1 for Black Hair: Stop using low grade hair care products that contain sulfates: Even if you get a perm or wear weaves, your hair needs the most nutrients that it can receive between salon visits.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 2 for Black Hair: Buy all natural hair care products, most natural stores carry Jason’s or Aubrey Organics ® Shampoos or you can by Beauty 4 Ashes ® online.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 3 for Black Hair: Take care of your hair from home. You can do it! Wrap or roll your hair before bed. Don’t just sleep on it without a protective covering, which can lead to split ends and result in YOU getting your hair CUT.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 4 for Black Hair: Drink plenty of water and reduce your intake of junk foods. Take a B Complex on a daily basis.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 5 for Black Hair: Buy Silk pillow cases and hair wraps. Avoid cotton, it can lead to hair breakage.
