WILD CHERRY HAIR SERUM WILL HELP KEEP YOUR SCALP CLEAN…

Whether your hair is natural, or you are wearing a weave, Wild Cherry hair products promote growth and everyday maintenance for your tresses. Depending on how your weave is attached, in lots of cases it can be bothersome to cleanse your scalp effectively, while wearing a full sew in. It might be difficult, but hair grows best on a scalp free of bacteria and dirt, so washing your hair is extremely important to maintain healthy hair while wearing a weave.

Many ladies wear weaves to achieve extra length and thickness, but also with hopes, that by giving their natural hair a break, they will retain more growth. It is true that giving your hair a break from daily manipulation will allow your hair to grow. However, bacteria, fungus and dirt will build up and stop your hair from growing, if you do not keep your scalp clean while wearing a hair weave. Neglecting the scalp while your hair is braided under a weave will create an environment that is not conducive to hair growth.

THE ART OF GROWING CURLY, KINKY, COILY HAIR

I cringe every time I hear someone say good hair. It really pisses me off. Black people have such a stigma about hair.  It makes me sick! All hair is good hair, and every hair texture has the ability to grow. Anything you water will grow. Depending on the products you use and your environment, bi-weekly washing may not be too much. Also, please be mindful of the products you use on your little loves.

When you put something on your skin and scalp it absorbs into your blood stream in 26 seconds! Why would I ever put anything on my daughter I couldn’t pronounce?

My biggest no, no is using petroleum-based products on a child’s scalp. It clogs their pores. I grew up in an era where greasing the scalp was something black folks believed in. This is the root of why some women battle their hair growth today. Sure, for the moment it looks good but after years it is the root of hair follicles being clogged. Say “no” to grease and hello to natural oils!

Here are 3 hair care tips:

  1. Natural shampoo is key. Babies’ hair is fine and has a hard time holding up against shampoo with alcohol in it. Alcohol dries and strips the hair, NOT washes. Water is the best hydration in the world.
  2. MOISTURE, MOISTURE, MOISTURE. Use a leave in conditioner that is water based. Water is the best moisture there is. This summer we spent a lot of time in the pool and my daughter’s hair started to feel little dry.  Every night I started spritzing it with water and reapplying oil and conditioner to seal the hair.
  3. I also deep condition it monthly! I love Queen Helen’s cholesterol. I’m guilty of being old school and still putting a treatment in not just my hair, but also my daughter’s. Do not overdo the cholesterol because it will dry out your hair.

Every day when I comb her hair, I spray it with water first to help detangle. I section it off and I start combing at the bottom and work my way up.

I apply leave-in conditioner and put it in a protective style. I do not braid tight around her edges or pull the hair too hard.

Healthy hair starts from the inside out so eating a well-balanced diet full of fruits and vegetables is key.

Another important key to growing long hair is the less manipulation the better. I happen to prefer twisting her ponytails over braiding them because I feel it stays moisturized longer. When I do braid, I make sure not to braid tightly. And her braids DO NOT STAY IN MORE THAN A DAY. That’s right, I comb her hair daily. I also do not add synthetic hair in her braids. Synthetic hair tends to cut into our natural tresses and break it off!

HAIR GROWTH TIPS

I know, I know, Sistas.  Here I go back to aloe vera juice, but it has so many benefits. I’m not talking about the aloe vera juice with sugar added and the cute pulp in it. I’m talking about 98% aloe vera and above, which can be found in the laxative aisle of most stores like Walmart or CVS. Once you get over the taste, you will love what it does for your body inside and out. Drinking a cup of aloe vera juice a day boosts hair growth and it aids follicles to retain moisture.

Aloe gel applied to the scalp removes dead skin cells and clears excess sebum which can contribute to hair loss and poor hair health. It prevents itching on the scalp and reduces dandruff.

Combined internal and external aloe vera hair support is amazing.

Cherry, almonds and rosemary also have great benefits for your hair.

Eating cherries gives you all the vitamins that promote hair growth.

Did you know massaging rosemary oil into your scalp also promotes hair growth? Leave on at least a half hour before you rinse out if you don’t want to leave it in.

 

Did you know almonds stimulate hair growth? This is why one of my favorite oils is our Cherry RoseMary oil, which can be found on www.TeamCherie.com
