Tips on How to Grow Long African American Healthy Hair

Okay, so your hair is fried and you are tired of using drugstore hair care products and desperately want healthier hair. Well, you can have it, but you are going to have to buy a higher grade of hair care product. Some of the best products on the market for dry, damaged, or chemically treated hair are Ojon, John Frieda, Redken, Carol’s Daugther, & Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead hair care products. When it comes to salon quality products, this is how the rankings break down by ethnicity.

Caucasian & European Hair Type: Redken, Paul Mitchell, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Max Moisture & Gro System

African American: Carol’s Daugther, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth, Ojon

Black European and Asian Hair: Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead, RedKen, TIGI

Hispanic & Bi-Racial Hair: Ojon, Tigi, Paul Mitchell, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth (non-ethnic)

As you can see, your hair care product of choice depends on your hair type, which was determined while you were still in your mother’s womb. I have supplied several of my stylists with each of the above brands for my hair boutiques in the United Kingdom, United States, Scandinavia, & Japan at one time or another. It would take to long to tackle each product, so I have dedicated this article to African American hair care. Here is the down low on the top three products for African American hair.

If you are not particular about a product being all-natural, and have a dry scalp that can absorb lots of beeswax, butters, and heavy oils, then try Carol’s Daughter is the best choice, especially her Hair Milk, Mimosa Hair Honey, Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, and Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo for Dry Hair. The major complaint of Carol’s Daughter products is that they contain strong fragrances that can trigger your allergies if you have a sensitive nose, asthma, or fragrance headaches. Also, some of her products are heavy and greasy, but Carol’s Daughter herself will tell you that her products are not meant for everyone! Again, they are also not all-natural, depending on the product. You can find these products at sephora or at the online website.

A slightly better alternative is to opt for Ojon. Ojon products are decent and will not leave your hair dry. They work great for people with straight, long, and fine hair and are nice on multiethnic hair. Ojon is available online.

If you have African American hair, remember that your hair needs moisture. Do not let anyone tell you different. By switching to higher quality products, your hair won’t be greasy, it actually will be moisturized. Here are some good rules of thumb to stick with when making your next purchase:

*All-natural products are superior

*Look at ingredients, if the product contains parabens, which can lead to cancer, Just Say No.

*Price does not make the poduct. Always look for quality ingredients like Shea, Jojoba, Oil, Sunflower, Castor, etc…

*Do not over process your hair with excess heat, straightening combs, and super hot blow dryers.
