Here's the deal.... Brittle, dry hair not only looks awful.  It feels rough to touch and is prone to extreme breakage.  In simple terms, it can have you lookin' busted and dusted. If your hair isn’t as soft and manageable as it could be or should be, then you might find your answers here, because you'll be able to try some smart and proven natural hair remedies for dry hair

These remedies use common foods you can find in your kitchen, items you probably already have in your refrigerator.  Why suffer another moment with dry hair?  Get to mixing!

Some natural hair remedies for dry hair include using natural oils, like cold-pressed olive oil, or applying a deep conditioner that uses moisturizing ingredients like egg yolks and avocado.  You will only know how your curls and coils will best respond to natural hair remedies for dry hair by trying them out.  Remember, some remedies will get results, while others might not be best for your hair.  Trial and error.  That is what you can expect.  If such concoctions don’t work, at least you didn’t have to pay much for the ingredients to these natural hair remedies for dry hair.

But before you go testing natural hair remedies for dry hair, be sure you are not drying your hair by frequent heat styling, such as by using a blow dryer.

Avoiding Dry Hair

Heat styling can cause a lot of damage to natural hair.  Split ends, breakage, burnt hair and, of course, dry hair are just a few of the consequences.

When you blow dry, flat iron, curl or apply any other form of direct heat to natural hair, you are applying rapid heat to your hair shaft, which zaps it of moisture.  Just one session of too much heat can permanently straighten your hair.

But don’t think you have to see un-shrinkable coils right after you straighten.  Heat damage builds over time, gradually loosening your curl pattern.

If you must use direct heat, deep condition prior to blow drying, flat ironing, etc.  Also, protect the hair with a setting lotion or serum.

Natural Hair Remedies For Dry Hair

Here are 4 natural hair remedies for dry hair.  Personally, I’m a fan of using just a few ingredients.  I don’t have any scientific reason for this preference except that I want to see if an ingredient responds well to my natural hair.  How can I tell what works best if I’m using a dozen different ingredients?  So, the natural hair remedies for dry hair that I will share will be simple and use ingredients that are readily available.

  1. Combine the avocado and coconut milk in a bowl.

  5. Massage the conditioner into your natural hair.

  8. Wash hair.

  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil

  2. Add oil and beat the mixture.

  4. Massage the conditioner into your natural hair and allow to sit for a few minutes.

Mayo Deep Conditioner (a personal favorite!)

  3. Place a plastic cap on your natural hair for about 15 minutes.
  4. Rinse.
  5. Wash hair as usual.

Products Used For This Method...

OK my melanista mama, here is the quick-list of the products used in her type 4 hair tutorial to get the final (gorgeous) results...

Problems & Concerns With This MHM Routine

Hey babe, nothing is perfect, and not everything is for everybody. So let's address some of the things SOME Lovelies have an issue with...

  1. Take a lot of time to do (at first...)
  2. Products used are bit pricey (for some folks...)

Addressing problem #1 - OK, we admit it. This type 4 natural hair routine may look like high-maintenance and like hard work but don't worry. The Maximum Hydration Method trains your 4C hair to be and stay moisturized over time.

After a while of this, the time required to make your hair look super-defined will be less and less until you only have to spritz water on it.

In fact. The more you keep your hair moisturized and defined the juicier your hair becomes. So even if it looks dry the first time around keep doing it, your hair will get used to being moisturized and defined.

Addressing Problem #2 - Products Too Expensive? Well, it really depends on who you are, how important the final results are to you and how bad you want the POPPINGEST OF CURLS.

Some women feel the Kinky Curly natural hair products are so expensive and are scared off by the price tag and the same can be said for Camille Rose's hair helpers. At the same time though, other Lovelies are snatching these products up like hot cakes.

How To Spot FAKE Satin From Beauty Supply Stores!

I aint gon' hold you up sis, some of these beauty supply stores are straight upSCAN-DA-LOUS!! You hear me!?!?

Don't fall for the OKEDOKE and end up with your luscious hair drying up and then breaking worse than a box of uncooked spaghetti tumbling down a flight of stairs.

Some folks believe anything as long as the "label" says so, that's a BIG MISTAKE. And that's why they're paying good money for the privilege of some new split ends and brand new breakage, ughhh!

In fact, depending on where you live, MOST of these so-called satin scarves sold at the beauty supply store are as fake as promises from politicians.

The video below from our sista, OsaOsula Beauty, shows you how to find satin, real satin, that will hold in moisture and protect your natural hair AND extension hair as well (as long as it's high-quality, real human hair).

And after the video we also got some tips for folks who are getting skin breakouts even from real satin, so check that out below!. Now, on to the video!

Real Satin Scarves vs Fake Ones (VIDEO)
- How to Find a Satin Scarf for your Hair

How to not dry your hair out with FAKE satin…

PRO TIP: Wash Satin WEEKLY To Avoid Skin & Hair Problems

Look... 4c, 3b, 2c, 4b and whatever else textures ALL fall under this rule, still though, this is extremely important for type 4 naturals because we usually use thicker oils and butters on our hair and as a result we saturate or satin pillowcases, scarves, and natural hair bonnets with these products. So listen love....

It may sound simple, but many don't do this... You should wash your satins every week because you do not want old products transferring to your freshly washed hair and face causing pore clogging on your face and scalp.

Clogged scalps are hair-breakage factories and if these products keep getting on your face this will eventually cause acne and stubborn acne and nasty blemishes.

I don't know about you...

But I'm too cute for AWLLATT (Translation: "all of that", for the suburbanites among us), LOL!!!

So let's get to the best way to protect your satins and get more use out of them by washing them the right way...

How To Wash Satin Bonnets, Pillowcases & More...

Satin has a smooth feel that makes it appealing for many items from bedsheets to garments. It ranges in durability as well as cleaning options.

The smart natural hair sistas out there need to know that satin has special needs when cleaning, here's what you need to do...

  • Wash by hand or on the delicate cycle ONLY to protect your satin.
  • Use cold water along with a gentle detergent, like Woolite DELICATE CARE liquid. When hand-washing, let the satin soak in sudsy water for about 3 to 5 minutes, then gently squeeze the suds through the fabric.
  • Rinse thoroughly with cool water and NEVER wring or twist your satin clothing because it can easily lose its shape.
  • Don''t put your delicate satin items in a dryer PLEAAASE!!! Instead, lay the item flat on a clean, dry towel, and roll the towel, pizza-roll style, and apply pressure to squeeze out excess water.
  • Unroll, remove item and lay flat on another clean, dry towel to finish air drying, away from sun or excess heat. Satin items should be ironed on a medium/light setting, with no steam. Iron from the inside-out with quick strokes, never allowing the iron to linger too long on any one spot.

How to Grow Your Edges Back in 4 Weeks

how to regrow your edges back

OK, so here's the deal. This young sista named Theveline was getting ready to go party it up on vacation in a few days...

So, of course, she needed to get her hair laid and slayed. Problem is, she ended up with her dang edges basically ripped off of her head. Girrrl...

If this happened to me I would cry a river and maybe catch a felony charge after I holla at that braider, lol.

A Hard Head Ends Up a Bald Head

See... Against her sister's warnings, she went ahead and let a braider braid her edges and they were super-tight, ready to pop, and they left her looking crazy.

Girrrl, edges just snatched clean off.

So freaked out of course, she was desperate, and she started researching and looking for ways to grow her edges back.

She stumbled upon a product that had gotten a lot of great reviews.

So she tried it. She found Wild Hair Growth Oil, a product that we've written about before on this very website.

Wild Growth Oil + Haitian Black Castor Oil = Edges Regrowth

It's pretty amazing to see... In just a matter of a week or two her hair started filling in again and then she saw on YouTube some tips to help her hair growth even better.

She noticed that a lot of people had been RAVING about castor oil and especially castor oil from Haiti. So she got the Haitian Black Castor Oil and started using BOTH oils together every other day.

She put them on her edges and in four weeks her edges COMPLETELY grew back and she was amazed and even shocked. Check out the video below and read about THE CONTROVERSY below the vid....

How To Regrow Edges Back In 4 Weeks!

Video Controversy - "The Africans"

OK, there's always some controversy right? Lol.

Well here's the deal, besides the great info about the products she used to grow her edges back fast.

Many women didn't appreciate how Theveline spoke about African braiders. Some felt she was stereotyping them for jacking up people's edges and saying that they are known to braid waaaay too tight.

While others were in the comments saying "you know it's true!"...

You know how folks are, always finding something to argue about, ha!

Anyway, all that aside. The proof is in the pudding for her edges, she got LIFE back in her scalp from those oils. Really good tips from the sis!

How To Use BRAIDS to Grow Your Natural Hair Fast! (Part 1)

WITHOUT A DOUBT,  when dealing with natural hair all year around... Braids and high-quality hair extensions are great way to get a break from daily manipulation and an awesome option to use for freeing up hours and hours of time that you would have spent styling and prepping your hair every day.

And to top it all off.... You can take advantage of this time to let your hair grow!

Look... After following a strict natural hair regimen that includes cleansing, strengthening, moisturizing and protecting your hair for months on top of months on end, shoooooot...

It's a RELIEF to go ahead and install a weave or braids especially if you have a busy schedule.

Braid and Weaves MUST Be Used Correctly (or else)

Beware: Improper use or abuse of braids and weaves can lead to...

  • Balding
  • Fungal growth
  • All types of follicle damage and complications

Benefits Of Weaves & Braids For Naturals

Aside from giving you a beautiful way to switch your style up once-in-a-while... Weaves and braids are extremely low maintenance, help you avoid one of the hair growth sins because you won't have to manipulate your hair much and  they don't require daily styling.

What To Do BEFORE Installing Braids for Hair Growth

These are the things you should remember before installing braids in your hair...

  • Before sitting in the chair you must have a conversation with your stylist, , clearly express your expectations with them.

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT: Many stylists automatically assume that you want your braids or twists on super-tightly so that it lasts longer, but if you want to maintain the health of your hair and scalp you must express to them that you want them done loosely.

Loose enough that you feel no tension of any kind of your scalp, so that's pretty loose.  Due to habit some stylists will make the first braids loose but then slowly start to make them tighter and tighter, if this happens, stop them and ask them politely to continue to make them loose. This is VERY important.

Why?

Because when a braid or twist is installed too tight the tension you feel is your follicle nerve endings reacting to almost having your hair completely plucked out and since it's in a braid or twist your hair strands are stuck in this tense state with no relief until you start to get some new growth that's why you don't start to get any relief until almost a week later.

The problem is that the strain causes your blood vessels to constrict and dilate, which triggers a signal to activate pain centers in your brain most likely causing a pretty bad headache amongst other things, this can EASILY lead to permanent damage to your hair follicles and over time you'll start to notice traction alopecia meaning you will stop growing hair from those damaged follicles.

Remember this, traction alopecia is a progressive condition caused mechanically by you.

It sneaks up on you over time, so it's best to eliminate the risk now before it's too late.

Getting braids installed tightly in order for them to last longer can lead to balding later on, before installing braids twist or weave, you should do a real protein treatment, this will properly fill in all the damaged areas along your hair cuticles, causing your hair to look, feel and behave perfectly healthy.

This way your hair will be in the best condition to withstand all the pulling and tugging without causing more damage and snapping off.

Lastly, try to book your appointment earlier in the day.

WHY???

The job of a hairstylist can be mentally and physically draining.

Look... They're human too. And by the end of the day they've washed, styled and braided many heads of hair and they will be worn out and less likely to follow specific orders.

This can mean the difference between growing lush hair OR stepping down alopecia avenue (also known as BALDwin drive).

So it's best to catch them early in the morning when they're at their peak, before anything, have a conversation with your stylist where you can clearly express your expectations.

One of your expectations should be that your braids are installed loosely, also doing a real protein treatment beforehand will patch up the weak spots of your cuticles putting your hair in the best position to withstand the pulling and friction associated with braid installation.

A great thing about real protein treatments is that they can be used with any moisturizing conditioner so you can take it with you if your stylist plans to wash and treat your hair.

10 Reasons Why Your Hair ISN'T GROWING

Look sis, life is too-dang-short to be walkin' around with a head full of struggle strands and faulty follicles.  Ya heard me? (Birdman voice)

Be honest... Are you struggling to grow your hairs as fast as you'd like to?

Are you tired of seeing other women show off their miracle growth pics and feeling like you never really know the FULL STORY as to HOW they are growing and keeping hair such healthy, beautiful hair?

You ain't alone honey.

We get women writing in to BlackHairOMG all the time asking about certain hair growth regimens or hair health products for growth.

Well... Let's get right into it. These 10 hair growth mistakes are VERY common, and they need to stop so that your hair growth can start.

The 10 Deadly Hair Growth Sins

 #1 - Trusting Your Hair Growth To a Stylist

YOU need to take responsibility for LEARNING WHAT YOUR HAIR NEEDS. Your stylist may love you to death, but they will never care about your hair as much as you do.

Many stylists are more concerned with THEIR OWN COMFORTABLE HABITS when doing hair, often they are not willing to listen to you about what you need and then ACTUALLY DO IT.

If you insist... I guess.

You ever find yourself getting talked out of what you wanted her to do? It happens all the time. Many feel like a mama, talking to kids who don't know what's good for them.

BUT IF YOU STUDY YOUR HAIR, you will know what's good for you and you might be better off just doing it yourself.

They are not with your hair 24-7, you are. So please equip yourself with the knowledge. Test different oils, creams, regimens.

Write your experiments in a journal, track your successes and failures and piece together the PERFECT plan of action. You are your best hope for finding your hair growth keys.

 Sin #2 - Not Paying Attention To Your Hair Product Ingredients 

Avoiding harsh chemicals is a must, if you don't recognize the first 3

Great, Natural Ingredients.

ingredients on the label, it's probably not something you should put on your scalp.

An example of a GREAT ingredient list with natural and organic products that help hair instead of hurt it, she was reading the ingredient list for Fro Butter with Emu Oil. Excellent example!

 Sin #3 - Not having a WEEKLY Hair regimen

Having a weekly hair regimen that you follow gives you the STRUCTURE  and consistency needed to start growing hair like a BOSS.

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

 

Sin #4 - Not LISTENING To Your Hair

Having a weekly hair regimen is also made for learning and being able to listen. Remember I talked about having a hair journal?

Well, when your hair screams out for a change in your regimen, change it and write down what you did. That way you are taking note when your hair speaks! Literally...

 Sin #5 - Being TOO Hands On

When your main goal is hair growth, that means your #1 goal is also hair retention.

One major enemy of hair retention is you constantly messing with your hair and manipulating it. Find low-manipulation hairstyles, and leave your hair alone to grow in peace, honey!

 Sin #6 - Not Wearing Stretched Styles Enough

When you have kinky hair it's soooo easy to get kinks and knots. Wearing stretched styles eliminates that problem.

 Sin #7 - Think Deep Conditioning Is a Special Event

No, No, No! You can deep condition every week! Don't wait til you have a hair emergency or you start feeling dryness. Deep condition weekly (or as much as possible), it's a hair saver!

 Sin #8 - You saying, "Aaah, Porosity, Smorosity... WHATEVAH..."

You need to understand your hair porosity level. You think we out here Bull-Jivín' when we bring up porosity? That is critical knowledge for understanding your specific needs when you are trying to moisturize and stay moisturized. Without proper and constant moisture..... SNAP CRACKLE POP baaaaaby. Get it together.

 Sin #9 - Using Moisturizers That Don't Match Your Hair type

This goes back to #8 a lil' bit, because how will you know the best moisturizer for your hair if you don't know what type of hair you have?

Also, if you have chemically-damaged hair from perming or dyeing that is a clue as to what types of moisturizers to use and avoid. Weather-damaged hair has different moisturizing needs as well. That's why BlackHairOMG is here to teach you what you need to know 🙂

 Sin #10 - Oiling Without Moisturizing FIRST

Where would we be without amazing hair oils??? They are a MUST, a staple, a God-send! BUUUUUTTTTT!!!!

A Big Ol' But.

OILS!!! Understand Their Role and GROW!

One MAJOR confusion many of us have is that oils actually moisturize. They do not.

Moisture comes from water, oils and nutrients and SEAL IN moisture.

Listen, very-light oils with smaller molecular particles actually penetrate your hair follicles to deliver nutrients and then seal that moisture in.

Heavier oils with larger molecular particles do not penetrate, they simply coat and seal whatever moisture you already have infused.

Either way, if you seal your hair without first infusing it with moisture through some kind of moisturizing cream, co-wash, leave-in condition, etc. It's like tying the end of a balloon that's filled with air, and expecting to see water inside afterwards.

No, if you want a water balloon, you put water in first THEN you seal the balloon. So always keep that in mind.

Oil does not moisturize, but PENETRATING OILS, like Moroccan argan oil, do super-charge your moisturized hair with healthy nutrients and seals all that goodness inside. that's a recipe for some booty-length hair if you stick to a healthy regimen.

Top 10 Natural Remedies to Strengthen Your Hair

Please click the Facebook SHARE BUTTON on the upper-left to share BlackHairOMG with friends, it helps us keep writing free info!

 

Natural hair is a real luxury and our absolute PRIDE when it is healthy and well-groomed. So let's talk about how to keep our lusciousness looking irresistible and on full "POPPIN'" status when heat, dust, salt water, and other factors regularly damage it, causing the hair loss, split ends, and lack of shine.

The answer to this problem isn't tough to find though. It doesn't necessarily have to consist of expensive salon treatments and using professional high-class hair products (which are not always as great as advertised).

If you really want to restore a healthy look, shine, and the beauty of your hair, turn to these natural remedies for help. They are the option number one not only due to their cosmetic effect, but also the healing properties.

 

  1. Magic of Vegetable Oils

When talking about natural remedies for hair, we simply can’t ignore vegetable oils, so they are deservedly at the top of our list. It’s well-known that plant oils are a gold mine of vitamins and nutrients, they easily penetrate to the hair shafts to help retain moisture. Use olive, burdock, coconut, argan, rosemary, jojoba oils to restore hair that has become damaged from curling irons and coloring, to add a natural shine, healthy look, softness, and resilience to your hair. You can either rub the pure oil into the scalp or make a natural hair mask:

  • The hair mask with burdock oil is a simple and effective way of nourishing the hair follicles and is perfect for all types of hair. Mix 2 tablespoons of oil with an egg yolk and massage your scalp with a warm mask for a few minutes, rubbing it into the skin and curls, focusing on the tips. Then, wash your hair with an ordinary shampoo. Use this remedy once a week.
  • Take 3 tablespoons of olive oil and add 5 drops of the ylang-ylang essence, apply this mixture on wet hair and сover it with a shower cap. Keep this remedy on your head for about 15 minutes, after that thoroughly wash the hair.

If your hair is naturally oily, don’t abuse vegetable oil treatment, while the dry hair can be restored in this way even twice a week.

  1. Onion Juice Treatment

Do you know that the onion is extremely rich in vitamins and has medical properties? Can you imagine those fantastic results you’ll get after regular usage of onion masks?

  • Grate 1 onion and squeeze out the juice. Then add 2 tablespoons of burr or castor oil, 2 teaspoons of squeezed lemon juice, and a banana mashed with a fork. Apply the mixture from roots to tips and leave it on for about 15 minutes. The mask is perfect for weakened hair with oily roots.

Onion juice significantly heals, strengthens, revitalizes the hair, accelerates its growth, prevents and stops hair loss, improving the structure of your curls as a whole. The only con of the onion treatment is the smell you can’t get rid off when your hair is getting wet.

 

  1. Power of Eggs for Afro Curls

Most of the nutrients of the egg are concentrated in the yolk – it’s a trove of vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Vitamins A, D, E, B, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, folic and nicotinic acids restore the hair structure, strengthen, refresh and tone, prevent hair loss and stimulate growth, protect from negative environmental factors, make your curls smooth and shiny.

  • Try the egg yolk shampoo instead of your ordinary one twice a month to give your cute curls a new life. Beat 2 yolks, add 2 teaspoons of purified water and 2-3 drops of your favorite essential oil.
  • Or treat your hair with this fairy egg yolk mask: make a mixture of 2 yolks, 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon of castor oil and a teaspoon of brandy (or cognac), heat it up and apply from roots to tips. Cover your hair with a plastic bag and a terry towel. Keep this remedy for 1-2 hours and wash with your favorite shampoo.

 

  1. Exotic Coconut

Coconut is rich in proteins, iron, potassium, and other essential nutrients, so that it promotes hair growth, repairs damaged hair, prevents hair loss, breakage and dandruff.

  • Use a clear coconut milk or oil: gently massage the product all over your scalp (or on the targeted areas only), keep it overnight and shampoo as usual next morning.
  • Experiment with coconut oil mask: mash a half of banana with a fork and add 2 tbsp of coconut oil and 1 tbsp of sour cream. Mix all ingredients thoroughly and heat the remedy up, apply on the hair and rinse off in 30-40 minutes.

 

  1. Honey Natural Care

Honey is another natural remedy that your curly hair is gonna fall in love with. No matter if you use it in its pure form or as a part of a homemade hair mask, honey will restore your hair, prevent loss and can even be used as a lighter.

  • Honey conditioner recipe: mix 100 g of heated on a water bath honey and 2 tbsp of olive oil. Massage it over the scalp and keep for 40-50 minutes, then rinse with a mild shampoo. Besides strengthening, this remedy will moisturize, nourish, and stimulate the hair growth, making your natural locks silky and shiny.
  • Another honey-based mask idea: all you need is 1 tbsp of honey and the same amount of aloe juice. This treatment should be applied for about 10 minutes before washing the hair twice a week. Besides, this super mask has a great advantage: it can be kept in a fridge, prepared in advance.

 

  1. Avocado in Action

Avocado fruit is an excellent means for growing and strengthening natural hair. Whether it is the fruit, seed or its oil, avocado contains all necessary vitamins, potassium, iron, folic acid, and copper. This winning mix of nutrients makes all avocado-based hair masks one of the most effective for home hair treatment and restoration.

  • Make a hair mask with a mashed ripe avocado, 1 tbsp of olive or jojoba oil and another tablespoon of yogurt. Use this remedy once a week to maintain the luxury look of your Afro curls.
  • Besides, you can massage avocado oil into your scalp once or twice a week to keep your hair moisturized enough, healthy and shiny.

 

  1. The Best of the Dairy Products

Do you suffer from excessive dryness of hair or tips? If so, this hair conditioning treatment with mayonnaise is what you need! However, ladies with normal hair can also get additional nutrition and moisturizing, following this easy tip:

  • Apply mayonnaise to wet hair and leave it on your head for 1 hour. Then rinse it well and shampoo. Voila! Your hair will be grateful!

Yogurt is the second best dairy product for hair treatment, strengthening and preventing dandruff.

  • Take a pure yogurt and spread it over the hair, massaging it into the scalp. Then cover the hair with a plastic bag and wrap with a towel for about 20 minutes. After that shampoo your hair like you always do it.

 

  1. Rye bread = Strengthening + Growth

The use of rye bread (which is rich in B vitamins) for hair helps to prevent hair loss, strengthen, normalize the hydrolipid balance of the scalp, as well as to clean it mildly.

  • Soak some slices of rye bread in water, then mash it with hands and add a couple drops of camphor oil. Apply this mixture on your hair, cover it with a plastic bag and a towel. In one hour shampoo your flirty locks thoroughly to be sure no bread crumbs left in your shag.

 

  1. Hair Conditioning with Apple Cider Vinegar

Our hair has an ideal pH of 4 to 5. The acidity of the apple cider vinegar rinse means that it helps maintain the pH balance of your hair and remove buildup without stripping the hair of its natural oils at the same time.

  • Apple cider vinegar should be used instead of your regular hair conditioner after shampooing your hair. Just dilute 2 tablespoons of ACV with 1 cup of water and apply this mixture after shampooing, massage your scalp during a couple of minutes and then rinse your hair thoroughly.

 

  1. Lemon Juice for Healthy Hair

Ordinary lemon is a strongly recommended and trusted ingredient to fight against hair loss and strengthen it. Containing vitamins C, B, and various minerals, the lemon has become a must-have of many homemade masks and conditioners.

  • Squeeze 2 lemons into a cup of water and use this mixture after shampooing just like it’s described in paragraph 9 about the apple cider vinegar.

P.S. Remember Lovelies, love yourself and take care of your gorgeous hair to look your best and turn a lot of heads under any circumstances.
