Many people tend to think that taking care of African American hair is easy since it can be styled in different ways. Far from it, caring for African American hair can be difficult, because of its texture and tendency to become dry.
Throughout history, a woman’s beauty and femininity is directly associated with how her hair looks. Since history has given us images of natural hair on the temple walls of Egypt, I’d say there’s a great possibility that natural hair and how to care for it will never die.
Even the many advertisements reflect this fact. People tend to see the standards that the world expects of woman’s hair. Black hair care as it relates to styling is fascinating because of the versatility of the hair itself. Your textures can range from being very curly to dead straight. There are some types of hair that are mildly curly.
In several African cultures, hair denotes much more than the appearance as it is rooted in culture. For example, hair was used to distinguish a married from a single woman, and a woman who has just given birth from one who is in a period of mourning. This is why black hair care tips are important to know about.
Whether it is a long braid or in natural curls, African American hair can be very fragile at times. The right black hair care products have to be used. As with all types of hair, proper care is recommended at all times. This means the essential vitamins and minerals that promote growth have to be taken in, whether as part of the diet or in supplements. It is also important to oil the scalps to prevent dandruff from happening and bring back shine to the strands.
One common mistake in styling African American hair involves the use of way too much heat. Heat can be in the form of relaxers, which are chemicals that actually burn the hair. African American hair care calls for attention to the fact that the hair tends to be porous and is thus more vulnerable to damage.
Managing your attractive natural hair styles may not be as simple as it looks. Even hair that is allowed to be in its natural state requires special products and regimens to maintain its health. Many of you are steeped in your cultures and prefer hair that is in accordance with the evolution that African American hair has gone through.
You simply prefer to keep your hair as it was meant to be, which is as natural as possible.
