In Our Heads About Our Hair

08 January 2012

Be conscious of what you do to your hair and what you use on it.

Here’s An Easy Way to Keep This Chemistry In Mind
~~~~~~~ In Summary ~~~~~
Regarding Protein Based and Moisturizing Based Products:
First Steps: Cleansing the Hair
Shampoo + Protein Product + Dry HeatThe cuticles are lifted, (+) charged protein molecules lay on the surface of the hair. Dry heat helps the protein to bind to the hair.
Next Steps: Conditioning the Hair
Conditioner + Moisture Product + Wet HeatThe cuticles are lowered, the hair has slip. Wet heat helps the moisture based ingredients penetrate the hair strand.
See how easy that is? The trick is to balance the two, moisture and protein for your particular head of hair!
Now Let’s Do a Recapitulation or Recap!
Don’t ever let someone define your beauty, what you can do or who you can be. When you start getting invited to events at castles, please send me a photo. I would like to live vicariously through you! When you have achievement and success in one area of your life, it often spills over to other areas of your life. Never put internal limitations on who you wish to be. The external world does that far too much as it is.
Understand what makes your hair beautiful and unique. The shape of afro-textured hair plays a big part in how this hair captures and reflects light. The shape of the hair is also responsible for its unique beauty and its fragility. When you are aware and understand how the shape of your hair impacts its health, you can leverage this knowledge and use it to your advantage.
The hair strand is covered with cuticles. Cuticles function like gills on a fish in that they lift and raise and close and shut. Shampoos and cleansers tend to lift the cuticles and conditioners tend to lower and tighten them. At the end of your hair grooming process the goal is to have lowered and closed cuticles.
Processing, coloring, too much heat and poor quality styling implements can damage hair. Be conscious of what you do to your hair and what you use on it.
The secret to gaining length and retaining that length is to preserve and protect the hair strands on your head.
Remember to add moisture to your hair in the form of a water based product. Protein should be used to maintain the structure of the hair strand and to fill in missing or chipped cuticle layers. Remember to balance the use of protein with moisture based products.
Moisture, moisture, moisture should be followed by preserve, preserve, preserve! If you take these steps, you will be well on your way to gaining and retaining length on your afro-textured hair!
