African American Hair Products
The Best Black Hair Care Products for African Americans
Great hair products for black hair should add extreme amounts of moisture and oils to protect and to restore the health of the hair. Black hair needs more moisture added since it is harder for our natural oils to travel all the way through to the ends of the hair with the way it grows, in a spiral form.
Black hair care products need oils that will add moisture instead of stripping the hair and scalp of our natural oils. The formulas we have come up with include these active ingredients, Emu Oil, Jojoba Oil, Lustreplex®, Panthenol, Fision Hair Moisture®, Trichogen® VEG LS 9733, Silk Protein and Glycerin. We have had excellent results with all of these ingredients and formulations.
Clinical studies conducted in the United States and other
parts of the world show that Emu Oil works to keep hair in the anagen phase
longer than normal,the anagen phase is the hair growth phase. This is the only
phase in which the hair follicle and the hair are actually considered living
and this is the only time it can be affected by any type of product.
Emu oil benefits cell growth and provides skin stimulation
around new hair follicles as they start and continue the growth process. The end result is great hair products for black hair!
Jojoba Oil is excellent for scalp and hair hydration. It works extremely well as a sealant over water-dampened
hair. One of the most attractive qualities about jojoba oil is that its makeup
closely resembles that of our scalp's natural sebum.
Coconut Oil moisturizes the hair. Most oils lock in moisture
and create a barrier to clock water but don’t add moisture as well like Coconut
Oil does! The chemical structure of coconut oil allows it to penetrate
the hair strands, strengthening and moisturizing it from within.
Lustreplex™ is designed to help create lustrous,
healthy-looking hair when delivered from a shampoo system. It increases the
“Hair Humidity Resistance Factor” (H2RF) to reduce the effect of humidity and
provides manageability and control over frizz. Evaluations conducted on the
shine index confirm that the incorporation of Lustreplex® will maintain the
shine normally lost by the hair during shampooing.
It is also proven to condition and detangle both virgin and
bleached hair. All of these benefits are further complemented by its ability to
resist build-up, allowing the consumer to remain faithful to one brand without
the need for stripping or anti-residue shampoos.
Panthenol is a provitamin of B5 that is commonly blended
into hydrating hair and skin care products. It’s most celebrated for its
ability to thicken tresses while speeding up growth and moisturizing, leaving
hair silky and shiny.
Silk Tein NPNF® is useful in elegant hair and skin preparations
for its excellent moisture binding properties and feel. In addition, this
protein is substantive to skin and hair and provides a protective barrier.
Growth, Strength & Moisture for Black Hair Care!
Black hair care can be challenging when it comes to adding moisture instead of stripping it. We produce sebum from our skin to keep our scalp and skin hydrated. For several different reasons we can have issues with that being regulated, whether it be due an internal issue or external. Jojoba oil will regulate our sebaceous glands by controlling the amount of sebum being released.
The ProFolla Silk line is formulated specifically for the needs of black hair care. Combining the best oils and herbal blends that work for managing coarse, thick, kinky or tightly curled hair. The best black hair care products should have good quality oils that add moisture and protect the hair and skin.
