Our hair says a lot about our personality, identity, and culture. It is unique, just as we all have different hair structures and textures — and so as people of color is unique of its own.
Black people have larger hair follicles which makes the hair appear denser and much thicker. Moreover, it is more fragile and even more prone to damage, dryness, breakage, hair thinning, and hair loss — due to heat, super tight hairstyles, dreadlocks, and even hair chemicals — this makes black women more prone to a certain type of hair loss called Traction alopecia.
But don't fret, with proper hair care, you can lessen the damage and improve your hair quality. Here are a few tips to maintain healthy hair :
1. Wash your hair less
2. Make sure to use hair conditioner

+Using a hair conditioner can help protect hair strands from environmental hazards and damage from styling tools.
3. Wash gentlyMake sure that when you wash your hair, your giving it a gentle stroke as you massage your hair scalp thoroughly.
4. Hydrate your hair
We love hair moisture. Since black hair tends to get dry, we need to add more moisture to it. So, it's important to hydrate your hair.
We recommend Moringa oil as it helps lock in hair moisture. Plus, it's rich in Vitamin C, A, E, and other nutrients which is best for healthy hair care. And this is our all-time favorite due to its many benefit for hair, skin, nails, and even lips. .
