BRING BACK THE HAIRLINE

I don’t know how many times we’ve lamented that you need to treat your hairline with a lot more TLC – no tight braids or plaits and no pulling of any sort. Well now that you are literally counting every single strand, use products that are geared at encouraging hair growth from the hair follicles. When applying the product gently massage it in to encourage blood flow in the affected area.

ARE THE WHITE FLAKES ON MY HAIR DANDRUFF?

Dandruff and dry scalp flakes can be a potentially embarrassing situation for any person. Some is caused by dry scalp – or the general health of your skin. There are many theories as to why dandruff occurs but the constant shedding of the skin on your scalp can be the main issue. Shampoo your hair regularly and base with a moisturing scalp serum.

I WANT LONGER TRESSES

A big problem black women face with regards to their hair is that it stops or it grows to a certain length. One mistake we make is that we hang on to as much length as possible and avoid trimming our ends. Trimming hair every three months triggers the hair to grow. Simply put, the hair follicle is tricked into believing that hair has not reached its optimum length yet. We also suggest deep conditioning hair as often as possible.

I NEED MORE SHEEN

Want hair that glistens naturally? Hair becomes dull if it is damaged by chemicals like relaxers and hair dyes, heat styling and sun damage. Start washing your hair with cool water; this helps the hair shaft to close therefore retaining more moisture. Also injecting your hair with moisture constantly ensures healthier hair.
