Finding The Best Products For Natural Hair Can Be Difficult

Trying to find the best products for natural hair can be difficult. There are a lot of products to choose from when you walk into a beauty store, salon, or search online. This is a dilemma that a lot of African American women are facing. For such a long time the tradition for African American women has been to straighten their hair with chemical relaxer treatments. Unfortunately this has done damage to the scalps of so many unsuspecting women. For the most part women don't think much about the warning label that says right on the package chemical relaxer treatments can cause permanent hair loss when they come into contact with the scalp. They are more concerned with how their hair is going to look in the short term. Thanks to the natural hair movement that is changing. The natural hair movement is a movement that has gained so much momentum across this country. This movement is raising awareness through valuable knowledge and education. With awareness being raised about the damage that these chemical treatments can do less and less women are putting their scalps in danger.
Not only chemical treatments are to blame. A lot of other traditional African American hair products are petroleum based products that can clog the pores of the scalp. When the pores of the scalp are clogged it has a very bad effect on hair growth. It can also cause thinning hair and hair loss. African American women and men are becoming well aware of this. Because of that more and more women and men are staying away from products that can clog the pores of the scalp.
All of the ingredients are listed on the back of products. So when you are looking for the best products to care for your hair please make sure that they do not have ingredients in them that will harm your scalp. This will help you to love your natural hair!

Dry Scalp Causes & Treatments

Dry scalp effects men and women of all ages. When it comes to finding a treatment for dry scalp there are a lot of different options out there for men and women of all ethnicities. There are medicated shampoos that contain zinc pyrithione, selenium oxide, or ketoconazole. There are also natural treatments that some people prefer.

What causes dry scalp? There are a number of things that can contribute to the development of dry scalp. Scalp bacteria, dead skin build-up, improper cleansing, allergies, vitamin deficiencies, and more can all contribute to the development of dry scalp. If there is a vitamin deficiency it is important to find out what vitamin is lacking. Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Selenium, and Zinc are among the vitamins that are very important for superior scalp health. These deficiencies can be corrected through supplements.

What about proper cleansing of the scalp? Proper scalp care is something that is generally overlooked in a big way. The term hair care is much more commonly used than the term scalp care when in fact the hair grows at the scalp. If you are concerned with caring for your scalp the way you should, this is where Scalpure comes in. They make a Premium Clay Mask that is an amazing treatment for dry scalp. It draws deep rooted build-up that can contribute to dry scalp and it eliminates scalp bacteria that can also contribute. If you try this mask rest assured that your scalp will feel cleaner and healthier than it has in quite some time. They also make a Premium Shampoo that helps keep my dry scalp from coming back. Both of these products work better than anything I have ever tried to get rid of my scalp issues.
