For those of you that want to know the best of the best in black natural hair care I would like to introduce myself. I am the creator of several hair care lines and would like to take a second to explain the difference between black hair and other races of hair and how important the products can be to helping you with your hair product choices.
There are several major name brands of black hair care but the best known is most likely Nioxin, KMS, Motions and Healthy Hair Plus. So which of these can really help your hair and which of these is coating your hair. First I would like to tell you some statistics about black hair or African American Hair. Most men and over 50% of women do their own hair. Most shampoo only one time per week. Women that straighten or perm their hair suffer over 90% more hair problems than black women that don�t and finally most use hair products that they buy at the drug store or at the super market. Very few actually use salon grade products on their hair. Even the products purchased at beauty supply stores can be cheap. So what can you do? Well the first thing that you should notice those that color treat, perm or straighten their hair have more hair problems. This is because when you straighten your hair you break down what is referred to as the cystine bond in the hair. This breaks down the protection that hair has against heat. Breaking down this barrier causes the cuticle to open up even more. I say even more because the cuticle in black hair is already open because of the curl. Therefore it is vital to make sure that you help to close down the cuticle after perms and relaxers.
