5 Questions About Black Hair Answered


We have heard it all. Slap on some mayonnaise. Wash twice a month. Drink plenty of water. Tricks of the trade, mystifying myths, and sworn by remedies. If we’re keeping it real, we’ve probably tried just about everything to keep those strands on our heads healthy. In fact, we probably could open up a store with the amount of products tried on our precious scalps.

But when it comes down to the basic truths about black hair, is there a difference between fact and fiction? There sure is. We asked and got answers to five most common questions about black hair.

Does greasing your scalp each night keep your hair healthy?

Yes and no. Keeping hair moisturized is a must. In comparison to other women’s scalps, black women tend to dry out instead of get oily, so it’s important to maintain the balance in hair. But with too much good can come trouble. Over using products on the scalp can cause greasy build-up with clogs pores and prevents hair growth, especially products based with petroleum jelly. If you grease your hair every single night, then make sure you are keeping your scalp healthy by washing out the buildup each week with a good shampoo.

Does using a dandruff control shampoo make a relaxer grow out faster?

For those of you who are interested in going natural the answer to this one is a good one: yes. Dandruff shampoos clear product buildup that causes dandruff and moisturizes the scalp. This keeps pores clear and promotes the hair growth you’ll need to ditch the perm.

Can natural fruits and vegetables, like avocados, make hair manageable?

Indeed it will. The good thing about raw products that may be used on the hair is that the vitamins in them are more direct and have more concentration than a diluted cream or bottle. Some of the best products boast the use of avocado oil, so start mashing it up and use it in its natural form as well.

Will braids make my hair grow out faster?

It’s another good old catch-22 that comes down to the process of braiding itself. Braiding can cause hair pulling and extended wear of braids can damage the roots and lead to hair loss or a receding hairline (this area of the hair is most delicate). However, braids can help the hair grow-out faster. The important part is when you take out the braids and the detangling process—do be patient. It’s extremely important that braids are not done too tightly initially and that when they are taken out each strand is detangled before washing. Clumping just leads to breakage.

Does sleeping on satin really prevent hair breakage?

You betcha it does. Sleeping with a satin scarf or on a satin pillowcase can reduce the friction caused by cotton and help prevent matting and snags. Rubbing irritates hair cuticles and causes tangles, which ultimately leads to breakage.
