If you can’t eat it, don’t put it on your hair!

Our Hair is not alienated from our body. There is a layer of skin on our hair called the scalp. It has pores which make it very possible for the products we put on our hair to be absorbed into our system.

This is why we must never put it on our hair if we can’t eat it.

You might think it does not matter but it does. Our environment isn’t as conducive (health wise) as it was years back, we cannot control a lot of unhealthy practices that go on in it and so, whether we like it or not, we are assaulted daily with toxins. For more on the unhealthy practices in our environment that affect us adversely click on this link 

Because there are a lot we can’t control, it is important that we control the ones we can, like the products we use on our hair and skin.

Here are some of the hair products that contain toxic chemicals

 

Relaxers

African hair can naturally be dry, brittle and kinky. This causes many women to apply harsh treatments, such as relaxers to their hair in order to achieve a new look. Or improve the ‘’managebility’’.

By definition, a hair relaxer is a lotion or cream that makes the hair easier to straighten and manage. It reduces the curl by breaking down the hair strand and chemically altering the texture. 

Hair relaxers, most commonly, are available in two types: Lye relaxers and No-Lye relaxers.

Lye relaxers are known to work quickly on the hair, but as a result they might also rinse out of your hair easily. Their main ingredient is sodium hydroxide, and they are also known as “alkali” relaxers.

No-lye, on the other hand, is mostly made of calcium hydroxide, which can dry out the hair.

Relaxed hair can be super cute.However, natural African hair can be extremely beautiful, especially with a few basic methods of styling.

The alternative

Don’t do it. Love the hair that grow out of your follicle!
