Grow Your Hair With This Delicious SUPER-Fruit... ? [2018]

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

 

What are two things that most of us "Lovelies" go crazy for???

Tell me I'm lying, when I say "great food and THE BOMB hair".

If I'm lyin', I'm flyin'.... And I aint went no-dang-where yet.... Lol!

The cool thing is... Sometimes something delicious can actually help you reach you hair greatness goals.

Y'all betta recognize the gang of benefits that certain fruits and vegetables can offer your hair, it's for real. The whole ‘juice and berries’ concept isn’t bad AT ALL.

There are recipes for beauty regimens that contain everything from egg shells to rice water, and their uses have been passed down for generations among many cultures. One deliciously beneficial ingredient is the Paw-Paw fruit, also known as Papaya.

[Follow BlackHairOMG on Instagram we got the hair pics & videos FOR DAYS!]

Paw-Paw A.K.A Papaya A.K.A. Hair & Scalp Helper!

The papaya contains a large amount of Vitamin C, which is key for its restorative and healing properties. It also contains about 224% of your daily needs of vitamins and mineral. The papaya enzyme called papain breaks down proteins, fats and carbohydrates and works to prevent stomach disorders, diabetes, colorectal cancers, intestinal parasite infections, nerve pains and even elephantoid growths.

Carpaine is another chemical that the papaya has that kills off certain parasite infections. Papaya also has a host of other vitamins, acids, enzymes and minerals such as magnesium, copper, fiber, folic acid, vitamins E, A, B6, B1, beta carotene, and riboflavin. The chemical compounds in papaya are so effective that many people take the papaya enzymes in pill form.

What Papaya Does For Your Hair

As we talked about in or Water Only Washing for hair health article, healthy sebum promotes hair growth.

The folic acid that papaya contains, as well as the Vitamin C improve circulation blood circulation throughout your scalp. The result of this is that your scalp is fed the nutrients and minerals that are needed to encourage healthy hair growth and stimulate your ever-important sebaceous glands. The sebum that is produced nourishes, conditions and protects the scalp, providing a healthy environment for new growth to flourish.

How To Use Papaya Topically

  • Blend 1 cup of papaya with 1 cup carrier oil and ½ cup Aloe Vera juice. Apply this mixture to your scalp and let it sit for 15-30 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Hair Growth Isn't The Only Reason To Get Your Paws on Some Paw-Paw!

Papaya is used for getting rid of nasty dandruff too. Because papaya contains so much Vitamin C and A, it aids in the removal of dead skin cells, encourages healthy cell regeneration and nourishes your hair shaft. If you’re fighting against that dirty-lookin' dandruff, papaya could be the solution to your problems.

Papaya seeds have complex anti-fungal properties that help ward off and prevent dandruff. You can either use papaya seed oil, or you can blend the papaya seeds together with a good carrier oil to make a paste, apply it to the scalp and rinse out.

Product Build Up BE DARNED!

Product build-up and dead scalp skin are two major problems associated with stagnant hair growth. When the pores of your scalp are clogged, girrrrrrl, you are beggin' for trouble. they don’t get the nutrients and moisture that is needed to produce sebum. This can cause hair fall,

In that condition, your scalp doesn't get the nutrients and moisture that is needed to make hair-health promoting sebum. This can cause hair fall, dandruff and even make that your precious new growth is all brittle and ready to break of before it can even do anything. Papaya can remove residue, excess oils and dirt, from both the hair and scalp.

A DOPE Natural Conditioner!

The same enzymes that are used to tenderize meat also have a conditioning effect on the hair. We talked about how papaya can remove product build-up on your luscious tresses. Now once that gunky build-up is gone, your cuticles are able to open up and suck up that moisture and those nutrients can be infused into your hair shaft, and then shut back so that the moisture and nutrients are locked in.

You can find many products that contain papaya leaf extract which has been shown to revitalize and condition hair, or you could blend ½ of a papaya with 1 cup of yogurt and 1 tbsp. of honey to make your own homemade conditioner.

Vitagoods Scalp Invigorating Brush for Hair Growth!

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

Look...

It's no secret that massaging your scalp stimulates hair growth through increased blood circulation and superior scalp health.

But massaging ANYTHING with your hands for more than a couple minutes can getting tiring, can cause hand cramping and if you have arthritis (or 'Arthur' as my mama used to say).... forget about it!

That's why we were so excited to read 100's of positive reviews about the Vitagood scalp invigorating massage brush.

It has soft vibrating tips that deep massage your scalp, it's waterproof for use in the shower or bath. You'll experience the benefits of enhanced cleaning to help your hair grow out faster.

In my opinion, massaging your scalp should be a part of everyone's weekly routine. I've noticed that I remember to keep up with my routines when I've invested in things that give me quicker results and help me do less work.

Yeah, I'm lazy & triflin' SOMETIMES, haa! But honestly, this is not just about being lazy, the type of massage you get from this scalp massage brush is lot more thorough and quicker without tiring your hands out. It just makes sense.

The Vitagoods scalp invigorating massage brush works with batteries and has an ON/OFF button to crank up the massage vibrations.

Naptural85 used this after her deep conditioning session and loved it, and now she uses it every time she co-washes her hair.

She says that her scalp feels so much cleaner since using the massage brush and she is really a big fan, you can tell because she uses it so much that the name of the product is wearing off, you can hardly see the letters anymore, lol!

And remember that this Vitagoods scalp massage brush is powerfully efficient, you don't need to grind away with your hands. You can think of it much the way you'd think of an electric toothbrush, you don't want to put tons of pressure on it, just apply it with light pressure and let it do it's job.

Benefits of Blood Circulation On Your Scalp

The deep massage you get from this massage brush greatly increase your circulation. But why is that important? Well... Circulation determines the flow of oxygen into the scalp, your follicles need this for healthy, steady hair growth. You can give your scalp a boost in circulation by massaging it.

One way scalp massaging increases blood circulation is by warming the vessels. This makes the roots stronger, which helps slow or stop excessive shedding beyond the normal or average hundred strands a day.

Massaging also reduces stress hormones that interfere with the your hair growth cycle. When your stress hormones are raging, your body compensates and doesn’t run as efficiently. This means your body will use the water and food you consume to keep your vital organs operating; your hair, skin and nails are last on your body’s priority list of nutrient distribution and suffer the ugly consequences. The Vitagoods scalp massage brush helps you massage your scalp to superior health and promotes a scalp condition that is ready for hair growth.

7 Worst Ingredients In Black Hair Products

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

Here's why these black hair products should not go on your head:

And there are many reasons why... The products go from simply serving no positive purpose in your hair regimen all the way to containing carcinogenic chemicals in them that will HARM YOUR HEALTH.

If you find them in your hair products then you are better off tossing the product in the trash.

So here we go....

1. FORMALDEHYDE: This is not only a product used in some hair products but in MANY nail polishes, formaldehyde should definitely be a "NO-GO" in the hair lines you choose to use.

It's often used in hair care products containing water to slow bacteria growth. That's all well and good but Formaldehyde is a suspected carcinogen and may cause skin reactions, lead to joint pain, allergies, trigger heart palpitations, headaches, ear infections, dizziness, and chest pains. (Join 17,700+ Lovely Sistas who are getting smart, fast hair growth tips)

2. METHYLENE GLYCOL: Beware.... This is nothing more than Formaldehyde by another name.

Leading hair straighteners, including Brazilian Blowout, claim that formaldehyde mixed with water creates a new chemical, methylene glycol.  That is like saying that sweet tea does not contain sugar.

[Follow BlackHairOMG on Instagram we got the hair pics & videos FOR DAYS!]

3. ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL: This ingredient has the MAJOR potential to dry your hair out and cause serious breakage! It can be found in cosmetics, hand lotion, and hair color rinses. Natural hair of African descent does not interact with this ingredient well at all.

This ingredient can also cause dizziness, depression, headaches, and nausea if inhaled directly. Definitely crossing this off of my list of ingredients I allow/turn a blind eye to. If you see Isopropyl alcohol in your ingredient list toss it (especially if it is listed in the top 10 ingredients on the list)

4. PROPYLENE GLYCOL: It's always troubling when products that are used for other non-human related things are used in a hair product or ingredient that has to come in contact with our skin. This is one of them.

Propylene glycol is used as the main ingredient in antifreeze if you can believe that!

People who work with this substance are told to wear gloves since it easily penetrates the skin, however we apply this humectant to our bodies quite frequently (deodorant, makeup, toothpaste, hair care products…etc) without any form of protection.

This chemical is stated to cause dry skin, dermatitis, hives, eczema, and other allergic reactions.

5. IMIDAZOLIDINYL UREA and DMDM HYDANTOIN: Thought we'd finished talking about formaldehyde? I wish... These ingredients actually release formaldehyde (ugh!) They can cause irritation to your respiratory system and create heart palpitations!

6. DEA (diethanolamine) MEA (momoethnanolamine) TEA (triethanolamine): DEA and MEA are hormone disrupting chemicals that are usually listed with the compound being neutralized.

Most beauty products contain this like bubble baths, body washes, facial cleansers, and soap. These ingredients if absorbed into the skin frequently can lead to liver and kidney cancer.

They also lead to dry hair and skin. Which is why they are a big no-no for your hair care regimen. Even natural products use DEA and MEA on occasion which is why it is still important to read the label of a “natural” or “organic” product! ( Get FREE Hair Growth Tips for 4c Hair HERE)

7. SODIUM LAURYL SUFATE (SLS) & SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE (SLES): This product is a detergent used in most shampoos and foaming properties. SLS strips your hair of its natural oils and leave it dry and brittle.

Because they are cheap ingredients they are used in most personal care produces and is used in testing labs as the standard to irritate skin.

If you use shampoo with SLS there is a possibility that it may be absorbed into the body which is not a good thing at all.

Too much presence of nitrates can become toxic in the body. This ingredient can stay in your body for up to five days, and it may be damaging to the immune system especially in through your skin.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)– SLES is the alcohol form (ethoxylated) of SLS. It is slightly less irritating than SLS, but may be more drying. Both ingredients can be absorbed into the blood stream through the skin.

If you’ve found any of these ingredients on your product list are you considering throwing them out or finishing the product? Let us know we’re interested to see how you’ve responded to this list!

Always check your ingredient list carefully and make sure you are aware of what is going in and on your body!

Kinky Hair Straightening Brush Is $100 Cheaper!

PLEASE LOOK TO THE LEFT OF THIS PAGE and SHARE THIS article on Facebook or Twitter, it will help us a lot and help someone you know!

So as I'd wrote about last year, ladies have been going crazy over the Dafni hair straightening brush.

It allows you to straight kinky/curly hair without the high heat of professional-level flat irons. There had been a ton of Tweets and Facebook posts in different Black Hair Groups about the new miracle hair tool.

But there was one big problem....

The $300 PRICE TAG!!!

Like many others at the time, I wasn't dropping no dang $300 for it.
Hecks-to-da-naw....
But all y'all that was complaining right along with me will be hyped up that 10 months later the price has dropped to less than $200! And that's FROM DAFNI (the real manufacturer), be careful of people selling knockoff fakes.

I say to be careful of the fakes and knockoff brands because there are TONS of them out now after the success of Dafni's Brush. The DAFNI company is the originator of this beloved "hair straightening ceramic brush", some have bought fakes and been very upset about it.

But anyway, the idea of the Dafni brush is similar to any other straightening tool - you slowly run the hot ceramic through your hair and it gets rid of any waves or kinks.

What DAFNI claims makes their product better than competitors is that it has more surface area than the traditional straightener, which means that your hair could be done in as little as two minutes. Plus since it's already a brush, the hair wouldn't get tangled.

The Dafni Brush at work on Kinky/Curly Natural Hair!

Here is a popular video from a Facebook user named Kimberley Satterwhite, she posted her first experience using it and she thought you might like that we share it with you right here. See the video below.

 

Be honest, what do you think of the results?

Given the texture of the little girl’s hair that it was demonstrated on, do you think this will work for your texture?

And thankfully, the price is down from$300 and now less than $200

Here's Kimberly's (the mom) Comment From Her Video Post:

Sometimes things look so good you have to think, "That just can't be!" And "It's just too good to be true!" Like how I earn 6 figures as a stay at home mom. I just say, "Let's just Try it & see"! I understand how it feels to be a total skeptic of something! So I'm going to try out the 'Dafni Ceramic Straightening Brush'.
DOES IT WORK?! You can see for yourself IF In Fact IT Works or not?! This takes the place of flat ironing and saves you MAJOR TIME! I am TOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!

NOTE: I was so excited to use this i didn't wash my daughters hair. She does have GEL in her hair i just ran it through really quick to test it. Imagine this on her CLEAN hair! WOW. I'm very happy with this product! (Get Hair Growth Tips from BlackHairOMG's Email Tipline)

Top 10 Highest-Rated Shea Butters

If you've been in the natural hair community for any amount of time, it will come as no surprise to you that Shea Butter is one of the most beloved and useful natural hair products on the planet.

So I'd be an idiot not to give you the top 10 highest rated shea butters online.

Shea Butter provides moisture to dry or damaged hair from the roots to the very tips, repairs and protects your hair against weather damage, dryness and brittleness. It also absorbs quickly and completely into the scalp to rehydrate without clogging your pores. It is especially helpful for processed and heat-treated hair. It's a go-to treatment for dry scalp problems and it brings life and luster to damaged hair.

I personally have used it for years and years and years on my skin (I was born in 1977). And believe me, my skin shows great results now from years of keeping my face moisturized every morning. Shea Butter is like food for the skin containing Vitamins A, E and F. These vitamins fight against wrinkles and facial lines.

Here are the shea butters with nothing less than 4 Star ratings...

Top 10 Best Seller Natural Hair Shampoos

All of these shampoos in the list come from Amazon's best selling hair shampoo Top 100 list. I, of course, left out any men's shampoos or shampoos that are not popular among my natural hair readers. So here we go, let's start with number one... Pura d'or Premium Organic Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo (Gold Label), 16 Fluid Ounce

1. Pura d'or Hair Loss Prevention Premium Organic Shampoo, Brown and Blue, 16 Fluid Ounce

This is the #1 best selling shampoo OVERALL on Amazon, it has argon oil in it's formula and buyers use it to prevent hair loss.

2. Pura d'or Premium Organic Anti-Hair Loss Shampoo (GOLD LABEL VERSION)

The Pura d'or brand is a powerhouse, they rank #1 and #3 on Amazon's best seller list, a men's shampoo ranked #2, so ofcourse they didn't make it onto our top seller list, so Pura d'or Gold Label comes in as #2 best seller for naturals. This shampoo is bought to prevent thinning hair & loss of hair.

3. Batiste Dry Shampoo Original Clean & Classic

Natural Hair Products That Gave Regal Fro THE BOMB Hair!

After you watch the video, you'll probably be checking for some of the highlighted products, so here is the list. BUT, watch her vid, because we didn't include some of the actual hair tools that she like to use to this list. Anyway, here's her favorite natural hair products.

 

The only thing we didn't think was that great was the choice of flat iron. The Remington flat iron is a flat iron for people who have never used a top-tier flat iron and are looking for something cheap. Nothing wrong with that, it cost so little money that you really can't complain. But if you are looking for much better flat ironing and curling results, it may be wise to invest in a hair tool that  is made for ultimate performance and that will last for a long time.

3 Reasons Exotic Herbal Rinses to Help Grow Long Hair!

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

 
Let's be honest, it hurts to constantly shed and lose the hair we have, or simply NOT GROW fast and long enough.

For these reasons, exotic herbal tea rinses are starting to getting so much attention in the natural hair world recently.

Even the not-so-exotic herbs, like Bigelow green tea and black tea are frequently discussed. And it turns it that there is scientific backing to the benefits of tea rinsing for keeping and growing hair. Even women suffering from losing their edges have seen success mixing up a special brew!

Lets look at the 3 scientific reasons tea rinses help your hair stop shedding and grow.

1. Amino acids – Strengthens Your Hair

Strong hair retains itself. That's what theanine does for you. Theanine is an amino acid that is unique to certain types of tea. Studies show that a purified extract of this amino acid could penetrate fully through to the hair cortex of bleach-damaged hair after a 10 minute soak at 30°C .

Even if your hair hasn't been damaged by bleaching, it is possible to accumulate damage to the cortex due to styling and combing as well as common weathering. A tea rinse can be considered as a very mild protein treatment.

2. Caffeine – Stimulate Hair Growthexotic hair rinse
Did you know your hair follicles can take up several drugs and caffeine is one of them? Studies done once more on human hair in a petri-dish showed that the hair follicles do rapidly take up caffeine and this stimulates hair regrowth for hair previously showing signs of hair loss. (International Journal of Dermatology, pg 27-35, 2007).

3. Polyphenols – Stimulate Hair Growth
Green tea has been studied as a possible treatment for hair loss. It is preferred over black tea as the roasting of tea to create black tea oxidizes the polyphenols. Tests so far have been performed on rats as well as human hair in a petri-dish with similar results. The polyphenols are seen to stimulate re-growth of hair. So if you have problem spots, for example, your edges, or are experiencing hair loss, then a tea rinse may be worth a trial.

How To Brew Your Tea Rinse

We will give you a great list of exotic herbs to use at the end of this article. After you've decided which herb(s) will get the job done, follow the steps below:
  1. Place the herb(s) in a pitcher (glass is ideal).
  2. Pour boiling water over the herb(s), cover, and steep for 10-20 minutes.
  3. Strain the mixture and allow the liquid to cool.
  4. Pour over your head after using a high quality shampoo, conditioner, and finishing your detangling session. Do not rinse out.

For hair that is severely damaged, linden-flower can help bring it back to life. It also promotes circulation in the scalp and will help new hair grow in healthier.

2 cups boiling water
2 tsp. linden flowers
Pour boiling water over linden flowers and steep until cool. Strain and pour over clean hair. Massage into scalp.
