CONDITIONING NATURAL HAIR THE NATURAL WAY
Studies have shown that the hair’s moisture levels depend on the amount of sebum produced by the sebaceous glands located in the hair follicles. This oily, waxy substance helps to coat, moisturize and protect the scalp and hair strands. So, less sebum means less moisture for the scalp and hair strands. This problem can be cause by a variety of factors including environmental stressors, changes in hormone levels, emotional stress and/or age. To the aid in this hair dilemma, we have the “deep conditioners” which are a combination of liquids, humectants, emollients and conditioning agents to help restore the moisture that was loss. Deep conditioning natural hair weekly or biweekly is imperative in assisting the hair and scalp in a boost of moisturizing benefits. And using deep conditioners that are a blend of more natural ingredients not only provides the moisture needed, but also offer an array of other amazing benefits for the scalp and hair.
