Hair of black men are usually brittle, rough, excessively dry and curly. These are difficult to manage and that’s why require conditioning often. Don’t get misled by glamorous ads that exaggerate beyond reality to market their products.
The best hair care products for black men are those which are devoid of sulphates and silicone. Silicones are detrimental for curly hair because hair has pores in them and silicon penetrate into them and are very hard to remove thoroughly. When they gather into hair, over the period of time they make hair more dry and brittle.
The best conditioner for black men is herbal or organic conditioner that does not contain any harsh chemicals, strong ingredients and other harmful products, which may cause severe damage to the hair.
How conditioners work
Hair conditioners actually seal moisture in the hair completely hydrating them and making them supple, smooth, soft and shiny. It helps avoid dryness and brittle texture in curly hair.
Organic oils as conditioners
Olive oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oils are excellent conditioners. You can massage any of these oils regularly into your scalp for definite results within a few weeks.
You can also buy commercial conditioners that are made with herbal ingredients and organic products. These are ideal to moisturize hair and work quick to make them smoother, softer, supple and sleek. They also make hair strand flexible that does not cause breakage and damage easily.
Treat hair nicely
Combine hard can pull hair and cause breakage. Brushing wet hair is another careless practice that makes hair strands delicate and they start breaking off easily. Exposure to heat is harmful for hair. So, avoid going into direct sunlight at day time. Blow dryers are also extremely detrimental. So, keep them away. Rough fabrics, scarf and hats can also cause hair breakage and roughness.
Moderate beauty treatments
Excessive beauty treatments are your enemy. Some women are crazy about getting hair dyes every two to three weeks. Don’t be so cruel to your hair and let them breath in natural fresh air.
Light hair styles
Hair styles that required tight twisting, tie, pony tails and stretching hard should be avoided because they can lead to hair shedding and also weaken the strands.
Use only approved hair styling products such as gels, mousse, spray, potions, creams and tonics. Use them only when really needed. Otherwise skip their use because they are not as good as their labels say.
