Why This Black Woman Hates Black Hair Products

The latest controversy to hit the web involves an mega-popular hair care brand - SheaMoisture.In this scenario as with most that share equal levels of abrupt disdain and threats of banishment - the culprit miscalculated the tolerance of its most loyal clients - that are situated atop the sheets of profit that steadily pour - like a newly fastened faucet.Black women are good that way. Actually they are fascinatingly amazing in this particular pursuit.

We see what works and we flock to it with purposeful ambition, and along the way - we recruit others to join the parade.SheaMoisture was forced to admit it screwed up in its effort to expand its horizons. This mandate necessitated the vital spotlight on White women in recent ads - that ultimately translated as a " you" to Black women who historically spend tons of money ensuring that bad hair days remain a buried myth.

My stake in this hairy mess is grown from the scalp of personal frustration.I'm an angry Black woman - with the type of hair that no chemist, physicist or natural hair guru can seem to tame - without causing me to curse the gods for the momentary relapse that resulted in the never-ending challenge of my life.As my mother's only daughter, I grew up with the memory of her fingers incessantly rearranging my strands after a laborious detangling session - that left me worn out, but somehow reenergized the woman who was obsessed with getting the parts perfectly even.

The grand finale required the application from a jar that contained either a blue or green substance - depending on whether your hair was reasonably dry or ultra dry.I've always claimed the category that required "extra", "intensive", "therapy", "treatment" and yes, "ultra."Ultra Sheen was the name of the product that was supposed to regulate my fiery strands by adding much needed nourishment to a consistently parched covering.

The smell of it still hangs over my nostrils - all these years later.The worst part was enduring the rough hands of the native women who grabbed, combed and cornrowed with casual fury. Then, afterwards - out came the green stuff - the dipping and the painfully erratic coating of the scalp - that was still throbbing from surgery.

My hatred for hair products was actively initiated and grew more passionate with time and experience.Once I was able to dictate how far I was willing to go when it came to the levels of discomfort that accompanied the regimen of disciplining my tight curls- I settled for a relaxer.That worked pretty well until it didn't. Forcing my new growth and straight ends to humbly get along without any casualties became an exhausting endeavor.

Also, the bi-weekly maintenance relentlessly attacked my bank account.I decided to re-introduce myself to the hair that had haunted my childhood.Of course, this was back when natural hair was somewhat of a taboo.

It wasn't a trendy and lucrative mission statement that evoked praise and worship - not to mention tons of opportunities to attend seminars, conferences, meetups, trade shows, global festivals, etc.Unfortunately, I was forced to fend for myself with no communal support or a slew of bloggers that promise to assuage my fears with vibrant listicles - assisted by first-hand testimonies that aim to inspire.My first stop was Carol's Daughter. I recall rummaging the aisles and answering all the questions myself as it appeared that the helpers were just as confused as I was.

I settled on the Hair Milk.

It looked yummy, plus, Jada Pinkett Smith was a brand ambassador.It ended up being an over-priced dud. Turns out that Carol has only her daughter in mind when she churns out the formula that does the exact opposite of what my hard earned money demands.No worries! As the years flew by we inched closer to the period of enlightenment.

Suddenly, I wasn't the only one trying to convince her chemically-free hair to succumb to the well-packaged dollop of manna from heaven.I knocked on heaven's door by playing the lottery in the hopes of garnering the winning ticket to soft, manageable tresses - that soak in what you feed it - when the price is right - and the prized cream isn't dedicated to a grade that is better than yours.It was a fruitless endeavor that turned me into a paranoid freak - as I convinced myself that the industry was setup for my failure.

Black women with hair like mine - that can't be easily tamed by whipped up fare from Miss Jessie's or the textured focused jars of Hair Rules, or the short-lived orgasm from all the others that are presented with the same gorgeous appeal, but only end up amassing dismal results after extensive use - are basically roaming rejects.This explains why I loathe hair products that cater to Black women, and yes, SheaMoisture also earns my scathing review.It ended up disappointing - just as I was getting blissfully content with the idea that I had found - the one.

The shampoo and conditioning sessions detract from the realization that when my hair dries - it's even more thirsty and aggressive than it was before the faux-treatment.I'm not invested in the uproar involving a brand that has profited from the hunger of Black women with successful results. I could care less because I'm tired of wasting my money and pride on the shit that stinks and rarely delivers.

The stores that are packed to the brim with every label you can imagine - frighten my senses as I stand in the middle of a wasteland - like a designated victim awaiting bullets from the firing squad.This Black woman is sick of the virus - and is hell bent on creating a cure that will finally alleviate the symptoms of the past. No more experiments, no more surrender to the conniving market that deceives with targeted greed.

My hair isn't good and it absolutely falls under the tab of fiercely nappy with a dash of ultra in the mix. There is nothing out there for me and I'm okay with that.When I make it, they will come.If you enjoyed this piece - be a Patron! Patreon.

·RELATED QUESTION

Why do American men wear class rings, but won't use their postnominal degrees on door signs and business cards?

American women wear class rings, too. I wear mine.Generally speaking, displaying where you got your degree from on a business card or a door sign would be seen as odd, at best. If somebody handed me a business card with the Harvard logo on it and he didn't work at Harvard, I'd probably ask about it: "Oh, do you do work with Harvard University?" and if the answer was, "No, I just attended" I'd find this an unpleasant level of showing off. Not classy.A lot of Americans will have college-related paraphernalia in their offices, though.

Like, you may see a pennant or they may have their degree(s) up on the wall. This is a more casual display of affiliation.Likewise, the ring is casual. Class rings are usually not that obtrusive, particularly the signet variety.

Usually, the signet is only immediately recognized by others who attended the university (though I have had people ask me to hand over my ring so they could take a closer look at it before), and thus it kind of acts like a secret handshake. I've had people from my college recognize my signet ring on sight, and then we have an instant connection.It's just a lot classier than shoving it in everybody's face all the time in an American social environment, basically.

Officially it was established in April on the 31st, 2017 to be precise , as months passes by the brand keeps growing stronger on Instagram, with over 8k plus followers within a short period of time, it baffles my imagination when I discovered that most of the wigs they sell are handmade by them.According to Dolapo the hardworking and beautiful young lady behind Dhies_Hair.

Some of their latest stocks included, braided wig with closure,Bundle of Kinky Hair, varieties of handmade wigs and lots more and it will interest you to know that dhies is derived from Dolapo with an apostrophe s. The rate at which WigBoss is passionate about Dhies_Hair ,its generally believe the brand will go placesHow often should I spray my hair with shea oil sheen?Hair products specially those that you spray contains alcohol, which is also drying to your hair. They are temporary, until you wash them again. HOW OFTEN? That depends how often you want your hair to dry up. You get ALL your vitamins & minerals from your foods daily, if you are eating everything from Mother Nature - not made by man. Hair products are made by man, no matter what they SAY it contains. Healthy hair comes from the foods you eat, not from hair products, which is a billion dollar business. Your hair is the most fragile of all hair types. They snap & break easily. So you need more TLCs than thin hair. No chemicals. No relaxers specially! No heating styling tools. Finger comb is best or use a wide tooth comb. Do what Oprah & Michelle Obama have been, going natural, using plastic curlers to set their hair. Use oil or conditioner to keep them moisturized. The hair of many black women is very fragile and studies have demonstrated that normal brushing and combing the hair can result in breakage. Brushing your hair 100-times a day is a no-no for your hair. Only comb and brush your hair to style it. Also avoid rubber bands or other implements that can physically cut into and break the hair shaft. If you want your hair styled right, go to a professional. My advice is URSULA STEPHEN, who've been styling hair for the celebrities for 15 years. Keratin are not approved by the FDA. If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all. Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Do not expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Growing healthy hair does not come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you are in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you are eating healthy foods. But when hair is not growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .
The Editor-Approved Curly Hair Products You Need
The Editor-Approved Curly Hair Products You Need
Let's be honest: Finding products that work with your curls is a journey of trial and error that is never, ever fun. So we've compiled this list of curl-loving products-from heavy creams to oils to leave-ins, drugstore finds to high-end purchases-that will address every curl need out there. But first, let's talk about the science of curly hair. There are so many factors that play into our curls looking their best, and lot of that has to do with our hair porosity. Porosity has to do with how hair absorbs water and hydration. Low porosity hair does not absorb water very well, which can lead to dehydration and frizz. High porosity hair absorbs water very quickly, but can also break more easily and take forever to dry. Want to know your porosity levels? Pluck a few hairs and drop it into a glass of plain water. If it sinks to the bottom immediately, you may have high porosity hair. Low porosity hair will float on top of the water for a while. If your hair sinks a little then hovers in the middle, you probably have normal porosity hair. Well, congrats on being perfect, I guess. What products does my curly hair need? Low porosity hair wo not react very well with heavy creams and butters, and prefers products that the hair cuticle can absorb better, like serums and sprays. High porosity hair can handle heavier products, which should include some protein treatments to strengthen your strands. But even with these guidelines, it can still be difficult to find products that are your holy grails. Ahead, our editor-approved guide to curly hair products, no matter your hair type.1. What hair products would be good for my hair?Try John Frieda products, they are amazing! And range from $5-$10 I believe, good price :)2. whats the best way to grow my hair back?Eat healthy. Add sprouts, fruits and lots of green vegetables in your diet. Massage your scalp with a good hair oil. Avoid hair products containing chemicals and try IHT 9 shampoo3. any hair products for guys so that they can style "emo" hair,, but for it to be soft at the same time?I would say American Crew... They have a great line.. Buy him the paste..no crunchy feeling and it will make any hair stay in place without the greasy gel look. He can also play with hair afterwards and will not get flakes or ruin the style. Where to buy: Try Harmon's Beauty or buy online. This is a salon product and should not be sold at regular stores but I have seen stores carry it. Hope this helps!4. Are there any hair products that compare to Catwalk Camera Ready Shine Spray?Biosilk works good. You can get it at any hair salon in a mall. Also if you like the spray there is a pink, black and clear bottle. I think it is called SHINE, it is light and I prefer it to the serum. You can find it at maybe walmart or hair stores5. Is it okay to use hair products on my dog?You need to get special dog shampoo because dogs react differently to things. Just think about how chocolate is poisonous to them!6. What products do i use?Since you are African-American you need to keep your natural hair very moisturized because it can become extremely dry. High-end products does not really matter, and as someone who got her bachelor's in marketing, I can tell you that a lot of the times the pricing is based on name-recognition and not always the quality of the ingredients. Sometimes the same company will make the generic products and high end products and the only difference is the price - the well-known brand will be more expensive because some people will pay just because of the brand name. Anyway, use some natural oils and butters. Natural butters include shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, aloe vera gel, just to name a few. These can be found online, at ethnic shops (African/Jamaican), and at natural foods stores. Shea butter is great for moisturizing the hair. You will find that a lot of the products you already own will contain natural butters and oils (lotions, soaps, hair products) on it's ingredients list, and this is because they are natural moisturizers. In their pure form they are excellent for providing moisture to very dry hair. Natural oils are usually used to seal in the moisture. Moisturize your hair like usual and then add a natural oil to seal in that moisture. This will keep it moisturized longer compared to not sealing. Water is also a natural moisturizer and natural hair loves it. So, you can add water to your hair and seal it with a natural oil. I usually use a mix of water and glycerin and then seal with jojoba oil. You can find many natural oils in the cooking isle of your local grocer and it will be cheaper than buying it online. Natural oils include jojoba oil, olive oil, coconut oil, lavender, lemon, and many others. Lavender and lemon oils are also considered essential oils because they mimic the hair's natural oil, sebum, and they also help promote hair growth if you message them into your scalp regularly. You can mix the natural oils and butters together, use them singularly, and mix them with your other hair products. I mix jojoba oil with my conditioner, shampoo, leave-in, and deep conditioner to give them extra moisture. Many people will mix together different oils and butters to create their own personal products that work great for their hair. Expensive does not always mean the products will work well on your hair. You will have to try different products/butters/oils before you find something your hair likes. Many people swear by Cantu shea butter, Giovanni leave-in, Pantene's Relaxed and Natural line, as well as some of the product lines that are specifically made for curly or natural hair. Search for "natural hair products" and you will find many product lines to choose from, like Miss Jessies, and they are expensive, but they are also made by people who created their own products and decided to sell them. Visit some natural hair message boards and you will get more than enough suggestions.

Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark." The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not have to approve supplements - no agency in the United States does. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality do not apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients. Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11 Google: MSN "Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good."

Why You Should Splurge on High-quality Hair Products
Why You Should Splurge on High-quality Hair Products
As I'm sure you know by now - all hair care products are not the same. The products you get from your salon and then you get from your local drug store are drastically different - yet people are still not sure what route they should go when purchasing new products.Salon products are trusted by the salon's hair stylist and are their recommended products because they are familiar with the ingredients and results they produce. Products from the drugstore are extremely convenient and are often very affordable - but it's the cheapness of the product that is the cause of concern.While some drugstore hair care products work just as well as their salon-equivalent - that isn't always the case, meaning you should splurge on some products but only if they truly WOW you. Look into high-quality brands, like Theorie, and their hair care products and spend the extra money if they surpass your expectations.Still not sure if you should take the plunge on a more expensive product? Here are a few reasons salon products are worth the extra green Better Ingredientss You should expect to pay a bit more for salon products because the ingredients are better. Salon shampoos and conditioners use cleansers that are much gentler on your hair and scalp and they are much more concentrated. That means you will get the results you expect without having to pour the whole bottle over your head.Watered Down Formulas One of the reasons your drugstore shampoo and conditioner combo set was so stinking cheap at the local CVS is because the formula is watered down. The problem with this, besides you paying for water, is diluted hair products often don't produce the results they promise. Another downside to watered down products is you will need to use more to get your hair clean - meaning you will be making more trips to the drugstore for your products than you would be to the salon.Better for the Environment High-quality beauty brands like Theorie make products with ingredients that don't put as much stress on the environment. Cheap ingredients result in excess waste in local landfills and higher energy depletion. By purchasing a hair care product from the salon, you can feel good knowing these brands take the time and means to reduce their carbon footprint. It's a win-win for everyone!Know What You're Getting Drugstore hair care products may be a lot more convenient then ordering high-quality formulations, like the Theorie products, online but you can't guarantee what is in the bottles. Not only can the drugstore employee not guarantee the results like a hair stylist could, drugstore items are often purchased from wholesalers who have gone out of business. You may take home an expired items or a product with misleading information and not even know it.As you can see, there is a lot of unknown when it comes to purchasing a hair care products from your local drugstore. Save yourself the time, hassle and experimentation by splurging on Theorie products.
How to Care for Curly Hair? (Products, Techniques, Etc.)?
How to Care for Curly Hair? (Products, Techniques, Etc.)?
I too have curly hair and it has a tendency to be somewhat at the frizzy aspect. I had been making use of Garnier Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner and it really works high-quality! It is helping get rid of the frizz. I additionally like to make use of the Sleek and Shine Oil. It's an anti frizz serum and is super! Hope this is helping!1. Carol's Daughter vs. Miss Jessie's hair products what are your opinions on either?I would say none if your trying to moisturize your hair but from what I've researched I will break down each one as I can Carol's daughter: I've heard a few products work for type 4 hair especially the hair milk but from what I've also heard their quality of ingredients are quite low since it's gone commercial. (The hair milk great for hair nourishment) Komaza: Have not heard much but from what I've heard the leave-in conditioner is great. Kinky curly: I've heard great things on the Curling Custard but not Knot Today. Do not get me wrong it works but for shoulder length kinky hair it will only last 3-4 detangling session while the Custard while last so much longer than that so you will have to use several bottles to accompany the Custard. (These two are great for curl definition.) Miss Jessie: Meh. I've heard that for the price the ingredients are terrible. I've heard many type 4's even 4a say their products do not go well with their hair. If you were to buy anything I would say the Baby Butter Crem. Understand that these products go well with type 3 hair because the founder have type 3 hair and they really cater to type 3 hair despite their claims. (The Baby butter crem is great for nourishing hair) Hopefully that helped2. What are some really good at home hair products?I do not use much for my hair, but maybe it's because it's so short right now, but if I did not use these products then I would have a frizzy, dry afro. I just use BioInfusion Olive Oil Hydrating Creme (exclusive to Walgreens). But, this alone is not enough to keep my hair moisturized so I use pure olive oil to seal in the creme for all day moisture. You do not need pure olive oil (it is heavy) you can use extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil or any other natural oil to seal in the moisture. I usually condition wash (co-wash); instead of using shampoo I use conditioner. I use Dove intense moisture condition and I deep conditioner with BioInfusion Olive Oil DC. I also use just water to hydrate my hair and a bit of jojoba oil to seal it in when I do not need to go anywhere. I do use a clarifying shampoo about 1-2 times a month to get ride of the build-up from the co-washes. I've heard people raving about Panteen's natural and relaxed line of products, but I've never tried it. There are many natural product lines to choose from if that's what you want, but a majority can only be found online and they are expensive. I am going to keep using the Dove intense moisture conditioner but I am always on the lookout for something better as far as other products go. Unfortunately, you just have to try different products to find something your hair likes. Edited to add: Also, a lot of the natural oils and butters might be hard to find locally, I've had to buy them online. You can go into any grocery store and look in the cooking isle for olive and grapeseed oil and other oils that you can use for your hair. I had to find my shea butter at a small Jamaican boutique, or you can look for it at an African shop. I just bought mango butter and used it only once, but my hair was as soft as it's ever been. You can also mix natural oils together or with your other products. For instance, I mix a few drops of jojoba oil in my conditioner, deep conditioner, and moisturizer for extra moisture. Another one of my favorite products is Jamaican Mango and Lime Shea Butter Conditioning and Shine. I love using this because it does a good job of conditioning my hair. Also, try regular curl activator. It will give your hair all day moisture and keep your curls defined. There are many brands of curl activator to choose from and many types such as gel, spray-in, and cream. I bought Hawaiian Silky Curl Activator (cream) and it has a nice sweet smell to it.3. What are some good hair products that make your hair shiny and make your hair grow?Just pee in cho hurr and it will be all shinny n sheeet
What BLACK Hair Products Should I Use 2 Make My Short Hair Grow Long Again?
What BLACK Hair Products Should I Use 2 Make My Short Hair Grow Long Again?
Unfortunately you can not really speed up hair growth so your only really reliable option is hair extensions. Most magic creams etc. are really a con. I am sorry but trust me it's too good to be true. It all depends on your personal rate of hair growth.1. I want to grow my hair long? I have some questions?Your hair does not grow from hair products, it grows from: good genes, good hair care & all the good healthy foods you eat from Mother Nature. When you wash your hair with one of those nutrient-rich shampoos, most of the nutrients and active ingredients in the product do not actually end up in your hair, they wind up down the drain... along with all the money you spent on the shampoo. It is HOW you use to style your hair or what styling tools that damage the hair, and what chemicals you are adding to the hair, not the shampoo. Shampoo & condition the hair as usual, every 4-7 days, but continue to trim off the damaged hair, allowing new growth to take over. Use GENTLE shampoo. Applying a small drop amount of oil to wet hair can also act as a leave-in conditioner and provides excellent conditioning in preparation for the next shampooing. If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all. Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Do not expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Growing healthy hair does not come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you are in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you are eating healthy foods. But when hair is not growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . . Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This wo not speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.2. Natural hair products for men (gel-pomade)?Just like you like to run your fingers through our hair, we do not want to be stabbed by yours! Tried mousse? Sometimes it will give you volume w/o the stiffness. Matrix has a good line. They have a wax-type product that is great. I am sorry that I can not remember the name, but it holds short hair w/o being too sticky.3. My hair wont grow longer than my shoulders?That happens, and I've been preaching about that here, since 2009. I've met people whose hair stopped growing or having hair falls, I've known people in their 30's whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70's. Most of my responses are from people wanting to know HOW to grow their hair, having hair lost or what color hair dye to color their hair, mostly from teenagers. The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to 'abuse'. Mechanical, chemical, or thermal styling. Hair straighteners and relaxers top the hair products pose the greatest risks. Hair relaxers, related products marketed heavily to African-American women, are dangerous because they may contain powerful chemicals such as lye, a toxic substance also used in drain cleaners. If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all. Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" Growing healthy hair does not come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you are in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you are eating healthy foods. But when hair is not growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

Dancing and sweating all night could have caused the glue to enter Graham's bloodstream. According to doctors and officials involved in Graham's case, death by hair extensions, or an anaphylactic reaction to hair glue, is not as uncommon as one would think. According to the pathologist overseeing Graham's case, there are 10 to 20 such deaths a year in Britain and many more in the States.

Hair products bleaching my shirts?There could be a high-chlorine content in your shower water... thats the only thing I can think of. Also, household cleaning products and swimming pool water can damage your clothing4. My hair is falling out--it's very thin! Can hair products cause this?its stress.. stop stressing out Do not wash ur hair every day Do not use hair spary5. we want to soulution of loss hair?This NATURAL, safe remedy is the ONLY ONE I've found that truly stops loss almost straight away and also forces new growth. Massage thoroughly with olive or any natural oil - then brush vigorously using a palm held brush with short natural boar bristles - soft bristled for fine straight hair and stiff bristled for thicker non straight hair- so you really feel it stimulating scalp - 90 /100 strokes at beginning building up to more - each day, focusing on where loss is. Will heal scalp and unplug blocked hair ducts that sometimes cause loss - they are the painful small itching spots. A little shedding and breakage may occur at first but quickly stops as brushing makes hair stronger and better anchored. It will grow fast, thicker and It will force the new growth. Initially new hairs will be weak looking and sparse. Do not be concerned if brushing uproots them as they will re-appear even stronger. My hair has completely regrown on crown. Where receded at front regrowth was slower and sparse at first then each month it became denser. It demands perseverance week in, week out to get the same results. Thinning and loss can be caused by many shampoos - particularly anti dandruff ones - and hair products that contain countless hair, scalp and even health harming harsh and toxic ingredients Washing hair too frequently is another cause - removes beneficial natural oils and contributes to loss. Find "Non harmful shampoos, etc" with Google searches. Some will come up and be expensive or only available on-line so refine search by adding "low cost" and "available in stores" Find in GNC ,Trader Joes, Some Walmart Stores, Cost Plus, Wegmans, Earth Fare, natural & health foods stores. I Have had feed back from someone who has had even more success using treatment. His has substantially regrown in just 6 months. Wish you the best. SOURCE(S): 20 years research, self experimentation using natural treatments for hair loss, regrowth and cures of skin, scalp and hair disorders6.

This is hands down, the BEST system I have ever used and I am very serious about my hair. You can get it at Whole Foods. Sometimes I cannot believe how affordable it is, and that a natural product works so well! You may want to try this if you have relaxed, or natural hair7. How to repair the damage done to my hair from my straightener?None. You are more sensitive than some girls. If you continue to straighten your hair, it could result in hair fall or not growing normally. Hair products can not reverse the damage done. But you will see more & more by the time you are in your 30's. I know! I've met people in the 70's and seen their hair. Like smoking or tanning some do NOT get cancer, some who are 2nd hand or 3rd hand smoke DO. Fix your dry & drizzy hair? Yes. Wash, towel dry, scrunch with gel like Samy, blow-dry briefly using a diffuser no more than 5 mins. finger comb, and toussle the hair and you are good to go. FYI: The hair industry is a billion dollar business, their job is to make profits, and there is no money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss, due to abuse. READ YA HAIR FOR 30 mins. and you will understand why. Also a good book to read is Dr. Seus' book The Sneetches.
Why This Black Woman Hates Black Hair Products
Why This Black Woman Hates Black Hair Products
The latest controversy to hit the web involves an mega-popular hair care brand — SheaMoisture.In this scenario as with most that share equal levels of abrupt disdain and threats of banishment — the culprit miscalculated the tolerance of its most loyal clients — that are situated atop the sheets of profit that steadily pour — like a newly fastened faucet.Black women are good that way. Actually they are fascinatingly amazing in this particular pursuit. We see what works and we flock to it with purposeful ambition, and along the way — we recruit others to join the parade.SheaMoisture was forced to admit it screwed up in its effort to expand its horizons. This mandate necessitated the vital spotlight on White women in recent ads — that ultimately translated as a "fuck you" to Black women who historically spend tons of money ensuring that bad hair days remain a buried myth. My stake in this hairy mess is grown from the scalp of personal frustration.I am an angry Black woman — with the type of hair that no chemist, physicist or natural hair guru can seem to tame — without causing me to curse the gods for the momentary relapse that resulted in the never-ending challenge of my life.As my mother's only daughter, I grew up with the memory of her fingers incessantly rearranging my strands after a laborious detangling session — that left me worn out, but somehow reenergized the woman who was obsessed with getting the parts perfectly even. The grand finale required the application from a jar that contained either a blue or green substance — depending on whether your hair was reasonably dry or ultra dry.I've always claimed the category that required "extra", "intensive", "therapy", "treatment" and yes, "ultra."Ultra Sheen was the name of the product that was supposed to regulate my fiery strands by adding much needed nourishment to a consistently parched covering. The smell of it still hangs over my nostrils — all these years later.The worst part was enduring the rough hands of the native women who grabbed, combed and cornrowed with casual fury. Then, afterwards — out came the green stuff — the dipping and the painfully erratic coating of the scalp — that was still throbbing from surgery. My hatred for hair products was actively initiated and grew more passionate with time and experience.Once I was able to dictate how far I was willing to go when it came to the levels of discomfort that accompanied the regimen of disciplining my tight curls— I settled for a relaxer.That worked pretty well until it did not . Forcing my new growth and straight ends to humbly get along without any casualties became an exhausting endeavor. Also, the bi-weekly maintenance relentlessly attacked my bank account.I decided to re-introduce myself to the hair that had haunted my childhood.Of course, this was back when natural hair was somewhat of a taboo. It was not a trendy and lucrative mission statement that evoked praise and worship — not to mention tons of opportunities to attend seminars, conferences, meetups, trade shows, global festivals, etc.Unfortunately, I was forced to fend for myself with no communal support or a slew of bloggers that promise to assuage my fears with vibrant listicles — assisted by first-hand testimonies that aim to inspire.My first stop was Carol's Daughter. I recall rummaging the aisles and answering all the questions myself as it appeared that the helpers were just as confused as I was. I settled on the Hair Milk. It looked yummy, plus, Jada Pinkett Smith was a brand ambassador.It ended up being an over-priced dud. Turns out that Carol has only her daughter in mind when she churns out the formula that does the exact opposite of what my hard earned money demands.No worries! As the years flew by we inched closer to the period of enlightenment. Suddenly, I was not the only one trying to convince her chemically-free hair to succumb to the well-packaged dollop of manna from heaven.I knocked on heaven's door by playing the lottery in the hopes of garnering the winning ticket to soft, manageable tresses — that soak in what you feed it — when the price is right — and the prized cream is not dedicated to a grade that is better than yours.It was a fruitless endeavor that turned me into a paranoid freak — as I convinced myself that the industry was setup for my failure. Black women with hair like mine — that can not be easily tamed by whipped up fare from Miss Jessie's or the textured focused jars of Hair Rules, or the short-lived orgasm from all the others that are presented with the same gorgeous appeal, but only end up amassing dismal results after extensive use — are basically roaming rejects.This explains why I loathe hair products that cater to Black women, and yes, SheaMoisture also earns my scathing review.It ended up disappointing — just as I was getting blissfully content with the idea that I had found — the one. The shampoo and conditioning sessions detract from the realization that when my hair dries — it's even more thirsty and aggressive than it was before the faux-treatment.I am not invested in the uproar involving a brand that has profited from the hunger of Black women with successful results. I could care less because I am tired of wasting my money and pride on the shit that stinks and rarely delivers. The stores that are packed to the brim with every label you can imagine — frighten my senses as I stand in the middle of a wasteland — like a designated victim awaiting bullets from the firing squad.This Black woman is sick of the virus — and is hell bent on creating a cure that will finally alleviate the symptoms of the past. No more experiments, no more surrender to the conniving market that deceives with targeted greed. My hair is not good and it absolutely falls under the tab of fiercely nappy with a dash of ultra in the mix. There is nothing out there for me and I am okay with that.When I make it, they will come.If you enjoyed this piece — be a Patron! Patreon. com/Ezziegirl//.type of hair products...?A chi is a good flat iron, just do not use it on the highest heat, because it will make your hair even drier and more damaged - espeically if it's color treated and already damaged. Why do not you try an acidic conditioner like Nexxus Ensure. It's grapefruity, and very different from other conditioners. Be sure to squeeze any excess water out of your hair before you use it, and rinse with cool water for super shiney hair (it closes the cuticle). If you use the chi on low heat, you really do not need any product to protect your hair. It will probably just make your hair heavier and greasier!.
