If your hair is dry, dull, and lifeless then chances are you are in desperate need of a hair detox. As naturals, we learn very early to fear shampoos (sulfate and non-sulate alike) and sometimes rely too heavily on co-washing.
Remember that hair is dead! It’s a common misconception that hair can be healthy. Hair can be no more healthy than a shoe lace, a cotton blouse, or any other non-living fiber. The hair on your head is not living tissue. It is dead, keratinized protein. Hair cannot be healthy. Of course, it can look healthy or not-healthy but that’s not the same thing. Conditioners help give your hair a healthier appearance (and reduce breakage) by smoothing the hair.
So you want to make your own face mask? Here’s where to start. These ingredients found in most kitchens and medicine cabinets transform skin the way um, nature, intended. Always avoid the eye area, and as with any new skin treatment, test a small amount on the face or neck, first.
How cute are these styles? Which one would you rock?
Stacy says…I believe silicones just coat your hair to give the appearance of smooth, moisturized hair. Hair is dead so you can’t really do too much to actually moisturize it within each strand.
The Beauty Brains respond:
Actually, Stacy, just because hair is dead doesn’t mean you can’t moisturize it. No, we’re not talking about some kind of risen-from-the -dead-zombie hair, we’re just talking about the true meaning of moisturization.
