As we have discussed in our previous articles, what works for someone else may not necessary work for you. Some hair relaxers that worked for other women may damage and break your hair because your body is simply different.
This article is for those whose hair doesn’t respond too well with typical relaxers. For those women, we recommend this natural treatment recipe meant for thinning hair.
This natural remedy will help your hair revert to its natural state.
First You Must Get the Relaxers Out
Let the relaxer grow out and cut off the hair that’s been damaged. This will leave only healthy hair. Stop using shampoos not meant for black women’s hair. Most shampoos contain SLS, which is extremely drying to black hair. Instead, wash your hair with baking soda water to clean your scalp.
Don’t Use Any Hair Products For Awhile
Stop using products completely unless you know what ingredients they contain and know they won’t hurt your hair. Products such as mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens and other chemicals are found in products for black hair and they do not help. You need to use all natural products for the best results.
Secret Hot Oil Recipe You Can Create at Home
The recipe is as follows:
¼ cup of coconut oil
¼ cup of olive oil
4 tbsp of aloe vera gel
3 drops of rosemary essential oil
3 drops of lavender essential oil
Mix these ingredients into a bowl and heat them up for couple seconds in the microwave. (Make sure it’s not too hot because it can burn you)
Apply to your scalp, down to the ends and massage gently. Cover your hair with a shower cap and let sit for half an hour. Allow the oil to soak in for an hour and give yourself a scalp massage
Wash your hair using an all-natural conditioner after. Use essential oils, coconut and olive oil.
Do this two to three times a week and your hair should grow at a much faster speed. You will noticeably notice thicker and shiny hair.
Remember always use natural products that works for you. Everyone is different and what works for others may not work for you. So make sure to find a product or remedy that works for your hair.
