Every African-American woman wants to have good-looking black dreadlocks but it is not always possible. The thing is that black women’s hair has dry and rough texture and it makes any kind of styling problematic.Moreover, a frequent condition is also hair loss and thinning. Therefore women try different products, hairdressings, perm, or vice versa, straightening, all of which leads to hair damaging. Often women start to wear wigs and make braids, which is also not quite beneficial for the hair as it causes its thinning or loss. If you come to face the condition of losing hair the first question to answer is where you are losing it from. The detection of the area is of great importance because this will help to state the reason. Female pattern baldness is generally characterized by hair coming away from the crown of the head. This unpleasant condition can start as early as 25. Such a condition is generally inherited and, perhaps, your parents have suffered from it as well. There is also such a condition as traction alopecia. It is characterized by the loss of hair due to pressure or friction. This generally happens when you wear braids often, also cornrows or weaves almost all the time. Besides, if your hair is frequently exposed to some heat, it causes damage as well. Moreover, the role of hormones in the process of hair loss cannot be underestimated. Whenever there is a problem with hormones, or, perhaps, you are on therapy with certain hormonal drugs, it is recommended to consult your doctor on the account of this possible reason. Probably, you will need to take or to change the medication as the things will get back to normal. The condition of hair loss is not rare in black women but do not ignore it. Hair loss can be a condition itself or a symptom of some other illness; and it is better to know what is what. All in all do not forget that your hair needs care and therefore do not neglect it. Keep in mind that the state of your hair greatly depends on what food you eat. Hair, as well as the rest of the body needs healthy food to feel and look well. Therefore fresh fruits and vegetables should be a norm for your daily allowance as well as foods rich in proteins. Do not forget that your hair consists of proteins. Moreover, make sure you intake enough of vitamin A, B6, B12, E, and niacin. Talking about vitamins, do not forget how important they are. When it comes to black hair the most necessary ones are vitamin B, vitamin C and vitamin E. A good option is to take B-complex vitamin supplement with thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), piroxidine (B6), folic acid (B9), cyanocobalamin (B12), and biotin. The researches have shown that this combination, and especially vitamin B5 and biotin, is extremely useful for balck hair. Another important thing is clearing the hair and general everyday care. Do not believe those who tell you that frequent washing makes hair weak and dry. It is nonsense. It is recommended that you wash it at least every 4 days or less with a good shampoo and conditioner. As black hair is noted for its dryness a leave-in conditioner is very much beneficial. It is also recommended that you do not rub your scalp too hard when drying. And it will be the best if you let your hair dry naturally without any hairdryers or else. Besides, it is also necessary to nourish your hair well enough. The best option is jojoba oil as it moisturizes and nourishes your hair making it healthier. If you do not like the idea of applying oil on your head try the products that contain jojoba at least every 2-3 days. You can also use coconut or olive oil and make warm hair masks about once a month. Remember, that your hair require attention and care.
