Know your Hair Type So you Can Take Excellent Care of it

https://www.pinterest.com/explore/hair-type-chart/I just found out 3 months ago that I  have 4c hair. I never knew that we as Hebrew Blacks had different hair types.

Thanks to so many of us  going back to the natural state of our hair we can grow it as long as any other race.

I have tried lots of shampoos and conditioners over the years.  I just recently learned that  some product are not good for certain hair types

I only use conditioners for the co-wash and go.

I have found that some products are good for damaged and  permed hair.
While some can be used as a  leave in condition that  helps the  hair shine, as it repairs, it  and gives it a healthy look.
I usually apply the conditioner on my  hair,  and I give  more attention to my ends. .

Then rinse thoroughly.

Foods I eat to increase Hair Growth

Hair growth is so important to (both men and women). Growing longer hair is said to be a women glory.  I realize genetics will play a part in  hair growth and type, as well as the foods that we eat for  proper hair growth. In my search to give my hair the proper foods for my hair type to encourage  growth. I started making green smoothies once a week to help detox and cleanse my body.  The smoothie ingredients are: 1 bunch of fresh collard greens,  fresh 1 cup celery chopped, 1 bunch fresh kale cut, 2 fresh green apples chopped,  1 fresh cucumber chopped and 1/2 cup fresh carrot juice. Blend well and eat or drink. It will depend on how much liquid you put in to define it as a liquid drink or smoothie.  I also enjoy salads.

The veggies I enjoy steamed are purple cabbage, carrots, collard greens, broccol, red beans, blackeye peas,  are certain  foods that I eat to  assist with supplying my body with nutrients that encourage healthy hair growth.

I only eat what is necessary for my  a daily diet. I really try to eat from the basic 4 food groups. I really try to get  all the nutrients needed to promote and accelerate hair growth.

What are the best supplement to encourage 4c hair growth

I started taking vitamin supplements 6 months ago. I use my body to test products to see if they really work.

I have taken B-Complex for 30 years. Biotin for 10 yrs and Manganese and Zinc for 8 yrs.

From a teenager I have always had dry thin brittle hair that didn’t grown fast nor become thick. As I have aged the shedding, has caused hair loss on my crown.

I realize that the food we eat does not have nutrients in the soil therefore we are eating dead green veggies and fruits unless the farmers who grow then are treating the soil before planting the seeds. After doing my research I started eating more live plant base foods because  proper nutrition is often a primary cause of  shedding, splitting, thinning, hair loss.  Vitamin deficiencies  in the food is the key cause.  I desire Great hair and a healthy scalp.


How to Keep your Hair Healthy on a Budget

  1. Try using baking soda to wash your hair. I know that sounds to funny to be true but it will really make your scape feel clean. You should wash your hair every day or week. It mostly depends on your hair type.  If you color your hair the baking soda does not scrip your hair of its natural oils.  Now the only other ingredient you need to complete this wash is apple cider vinegar to rinse your hair. I know that sounds smelly but it will bring the ph balance back to the scrape and hair.
  2.  Use 2 tsp of baking soda to 1 cup  of water.
  3. Use 3 table spoons of apple cider vinegar to 1 cup of warm water.
