7 steps to healthy natural hair

Where is my hair After graduating from cosmetology school, having a fundamental understanding of hair, one day I realized that my hair was different from my childhood, in density and length, and by length, I mean having none. Where was my hair? It was an undeniable question for many of those around me, friends, family, women in grocery stores. If hair grows up to an inch per month if healthy, why are so many struggling with hair growth? Most were receiving relaxers, so the main culprit had to be chemical service and inadvertently unhealthy hair. Because I am committed to the overall health of the hair (and the pursuit of our hair), I went beyond theory and embarked on an investigation into the chemical underpinnings of the main product that we had so gladly smeared on our heads every six or eight weeks. This discovery revealed seven key principles for healthy hair that are now the key concepts for achieving and maintaining beautiful and healthy natural hair.

1) The strength is in the curls. As I researched, I began to understand that not all relaxants are created equal, nor are those who apply them with exact precision or superior, professional skill sets every time. As a master stylist, I came across the most outrageous moments when stylists wanted to relax. I know you’ve heard – hopefully you haven’t heard – that “there are breakage at the ends (which is a serious hair challenge) so you need a straightener.” Does this sound logical? Hair is falling out, so put a chemical on it. Ironically, damaged ends are a direct sign of unhealthy hair.

2) Precise trims can help retain hair moisture, length and strength. Physical changes such as brushing, styling, blow drying, and ceramic styling and setting can affect hair from shaft to tip. Improper handling of everyday tools could be a factor in how often a cut is needed, but the most important point is that garden-like hair needs to be pruned (trimmed) to grow and flourish. Ongoing research showed that the strength is in the curls – this resonated with me, so I made it my motto. The closer the hair is to its natural state, the healthier, purer and stronger the hair will be. Therefore, the best potential for healthy hair is in its natural state. This revelation fueled my search for the best way to maintain natural hair. Maintenance is the ongoing issue that most customers seem to struggle with when going the natural route. I understand that clients don’t want to worry about transforming their style due to humidity or heat in the middle of the day, dull, dry tresses, or social isolation from wearing a certain style.

3) One of these is not like the other. As Director of Product Performance, I realized through research that hair could perform well, maintain and achieve optimal health using chemical-free ceramic fusion. These oxymoronic components could not coexist; it was an easy decision to stop relaxing. If you can get the best hair health (I found our hair!) Without chemicals, then the obvious was not to relax.

4) More than an iron and a brush. Ceramic fusion is used by many stylists, which is not new to the beauty industry. However, the Ceramic Fusion natural hair smoothing technique infuses moisture, seals cuticles and controls texture without damaging hair like Marcel flat irons and combs.

5) Steam Therapy, a custom conditioning treatment that combines multiple conditioners to balance, detangle, hydrate, protect and strengthen natural hair, is imperative in this process. This technique is more than just grabbing a brush and using an ionic hair dryer; there must be a correct layering of the products and the proper use of tools. The revelation of success is in the actual technique, consistency and knowledge of the technique.

6) Soft, demi-permanent hair color provides the safest and most chemically solid method of coloring any hair type without over-processing I think every woman has tried to achieve a lady color in the box with single permanent color kits app. , only to find our hair dry and brittle and watch the color turn coppery or cloudy. It is not exactly the look or feel we envision. The tank color enhances the natural tones by creating depth, shine and vibrancy. The pH level can get too high with the use of semi-permanent, permanent lighteners (bleaches) and even henna (the mythically safe dye), causing hair breakage.

7) A new head of hair. Since chemicals were part of the unhealthy hair problem, it makes sense to use a product line to better serve natural customers. A hair and scalp analysis should be performed to understand the historical and current state of your hair and scalp beyond a guess. This is necessary to determine what challenge and / or disorder a client may have, such as dryness, flaking, oily or perhaps dermatitis. Knowing this hair background will give the stylist the opportunity to customize a cleanser and conditioner that is best suited to the specific needs of the hair. The four goals of custom cleaners and conditioners should be: remove residue, restore balance, retain moisture, and build strength. And she figured she just needed cleansers to remove buildup from hair products and conditioners to soften.

Natural hair has gotten a bad rap based on fear, improper regular and routine maintenance, and stigma, but now you know the seven secrets to help anyone who wants to have beautiful and healthy natural hair. Many are simply unaware of what constitutes beautiful hair. Hair must be healthy to be beautiful. And your hair is healthier in its natural state. Disprove everything they have told you.
