Always use Sulfate-Free hair products especially if you are African American..

Sulfate-Free shampoos for black and textured hair is not just a buzzword. It really is good for your hair !

Sulfates also know as SLS Sodium Laureth Sulfate (Wikipedia Link) is a heavy cleaning agent found in detergents and household items. Your daily shampoos also use them (although a tiny amount) to create lather.

But here’s the kicker ….

Although it helps to clean your hair, the harsh salts in sulfates strip your hair of it’s natural oils.

This leaves multi-ethnic hair more vulnerable to breakage. Stop using sulfate shampoos for a week and notice the dramatic improvements in your hair.

Naturally Curly suggests that wavy and curly naturalists should completely avoid sulfate shampoos.

If you’ve been using sulfate based shampoos, it’s time to change your hair care regimen.

Here’s a good tip for you:

  • Get rid of all your sulfate and silicone shampoos and conditioners now!
  • Like I mentioned above, African-Native American hair is delicate. It gets dry easily and will break causing hair loss.
  • Do a deep conditioning at least once every 2 weeks and a protein treatment once a month to get your hair in good shape.
  • This will also balance out your hair.
  • Follow these tips for keeping your hair moisturized…
  • LOC (Liquid, Oil, Cream)
    LCO (Liquid, Cream, Oil)
    LOCS (Liquid, Oil, Cream, Sealant)
    These are common tricks used for African hair or biracial hair.
