Black Hair can be healthy!

So why so much breakage and hair problems with black hair? I am often asked what is the difference between Caucasian, Asian and African American Hair.

The answer is simple. At the root of the hair there is no significant difference. After the hair grows up from the medulla and leaves the hair then there is a big difference. So, if there is no big difference then why are...African Americans experiencing such horrible hair breakage?

The answer to that is threefold!ProFolla Silk hair products for healthy black hair

  • How the hair treated chemically
  • What is attached to the hair
  • Diet of the individual (most important).
All chemicals deplete hair of the sulfur bond and one of the main amino acid's in hair called cystine. This is why your hair dresser should not color, highlight, perm or relax your hair if it is damaged because these processes will only damage it more!

So how do you replenish hair? What can you do so that you can keep having these processes done without really damaging your hair further to the point of catastrophe.

  1. Our advice is that a hair vitamin and deep repair conditioner are the best ways to fix hair problems resulting from depletion. I would suggest ProFolla Silk Hair Vitamins for black hair and Silk Protein Conditioner, and possibly a deep treatment to jump start your healthy hair. Silk Protein Conditioner is the most advanced conditioner that we know of. It actually goes to damaged parts of the hair and fills in the chinks in the armor so to speak. This is an excellent fix for existing hair. However for healthier black hair growth and much stronger hair overall our advice is that you start the hair vitamins and hair energizer is second to none. all the amino acids to make the protein chains that hair is made up of, as well the b group of vitamins and finally several of the much needed minerals for hair growth.
  2. Using weaves or extensions can damage hair and hair roots. Take heed and add a hair vitamins to your diet!!! The hair vitamins make your roots strong so that they cannot be as easily pulled causing traction alopecia, breakage, splitting, damage and much more!
  3. Diet! You may not want to talk about this since it is easier to stop by and get something fried than it is to cook with less fat! But more importantly you should note that essential fatty acids also known as omega 3's are essential for hair growth, healthy skin and fingernails.
If your body is lacking essential fatty acids then definite problems can occur. Where can you get essential fatty acids? Emu oil is loaded with omega 3's.

We suggest the emu oil gel caps since they only cost $16.95 as a pill or you can use the oil alone and apply it to the scalp. Emu oil products can be found here! We suggest you visit Hair Energizer for black hair products and solutions. These products are targeted at Black hair for specialized solutions such as extreme dry hair or extreme dry scalp that causes hair to become brittle and break.
