Now we know we got your attention with this subject line. The beauty about our hair as Black women is that there isn't a 'one-size fits all' formula to growing it. However, there is a well-defined path for healthy hair which inadvertently leads to hair growth and that is:
Great Regimen + Quality Products + Consistency = Healthy Hair.
To understand that our natural hair is hair in its unadulterated state – chemical-free, heat-free (hopefully) – we must look at what makes up altered hair and what isn’t…
Due to the different coils, curls and waves of our hair texture, Black hair, arguably, requires more attention and patience. One thing for sure is, the best hair growth products for black hair are products or ingredients that are not chemically-derived or synthetically engineered. Our hair knows what’s real and what works. It makes sense, right? Natural hair works best with naturally-derived products/ingredients. Plants – fruits and vegetables that mimic our body’s natural dispositions are often touted as being the best option.
For example, Jojoba Oil is chemically-proven to resembles the sebum of the skin, and is rich in vitamin E. The name Jojoba originates from the word Hohowi, a name given to the seeds – or the “beans/nuts” – by the O'odham, a Native American tribe that discovered the versatility of Jojoba seeds. The tribe created and used an anti-oxidant paste made from the nuts for skin and hair care purposes. For medicinal purposes, they used the nut paste or the oil to treat sores, wounds, and burns. Today, Jojoba Oil is largely known and used for its hypoallergenic cosmetic benefits. Comprised of nearly all the vitamins and minerals required to facilitate the growth of healthy skin and hair, it continues to prove its effectiveness on the most sensitive of skin (and scalp). This makes it a perfect hair growth product for black hair. It is also one of the main ingredients in our bestselling Scalp and Hair Treatment.
Another example is foods we eat, such as grapes, sweet almonds, pimento and avocado. The fruits of the Persea americana botanical (original nomenclature: Persea gratissima) – better known as the Avocado tree – were reportedly cultivated in Mexico, Central, and South America as early as 5000 B.C. The Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans also spread the fruit pulp on their skin for use in cosmetic applications such as to create face masks. The Mayans of Guatemala used Avocados to relieve diarrhoea, prevent intestinal worms and parasites, and promote healthy hair growth. Used in hair, Avocado Carrier Oil straightens and softens strands while nourishing, hydrating, and strengthening them. By stimulating circulation to the hair follicles, it promotes new, healthier growth and prevents hair loss. Avocado Oil protects hair against damage caused by environmental stressors and helps purge clogged hair follicles. Some people use it directly on their hair as a mask and others prefer the oil to enhance healthy hair growth.
All in all, it is evident that the closer to nature a product is, the higher the benefits as an ideal hair growth product for Black Hair.
