HAIR Q & A
Q: I'm African American and I'm growing out a perm. My biggest hair problem is that my natural hair looks dry, dull, and frizzy in some places. When I touch it, it's mostly soft but dry on ends. look I have dry dull looking hair. I would love to have shiny hair.
CHS: Dull hair can most often be caused by product buildup. Definitely try a warm water apple cider vinegar rinse. To find the complete recipe visit the home recipes page.
Also, consider having your own at home natural spa experience by making your own conditioner!
1) Try squishing avocado into a paste and spreading it over the hair. This is great at adding protein and oil for shine and manageability.
2) Egg yolk mixed with two teaspoons of castor oil and one teaspoon of rum moisturizes dry hair.
Q: My biggest hair problem is that I have natural 4a hair, but I have a problem with some strands of hair becoming straight when I wear a wash and go. I had locks for six years, I took them down about 3 months ago and my stylists said that I needed to press it for a while to keep it from re-locking. I let her press it every two weeks for about a month and a half, then I told her that I did not want to keep putting so much heat in it for fear of damage. After I started letting her twist set it I started seeing broken strands and on the off weeks when I would do a wash and go on my own that's when I realized that some strands were permanently straight. I brought this to her attention, but she insists that the heat did not damage my hair and that it is safe to continue straightening my hair with heat. I do not agree and I think that these strands are heat damaged. I would like to know if you think that I am right and what can I do to repair my hair, if possible.
CHS: I would definitely say that your hair has been damaged by the heat. I would suggest trimming the damaged ends and performing a deep condition on your hair.
Q: My hair gets really tangled after I wash it. I have 3b/4a hair type. Can you give me the name of a good detangling rinse for African American Natural Hair?
CHS: A great hair detangling rinse is Infusium 23 Leave-In Conditioner. It works great on all hair textures. And yes, it works very well on African American hair (doesn't leave the hair dull). Personally I've been using this for years.
Also, a great natural cleanser that removes the build-up but also restores your hairs natural Ph Level is an apple cider vinegar rinse. Just sign up for the free PH Hair Restorer Mini-Course. You'll get great tips with natural recipes.

So, once you visit our products page you will see the green Dax pomade product. You will have to see if the company site selling the product accepts Paypal. Hope this helps. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you come back to see our updates!
Q: "What shampoo or treatment can I use to make my scalp feel soft, as it feels rough?"
CHS: Please check out the restoring your hairs pH level naturally F-R-E-E mini-course. I think you may find this very helpful. You should also perhaps consider a moisturizer. See the "Health Recipes" and "Products" page for more details. The AVEDA shampoo and conditioner may be a good choice for you as it's made of natural moisturizing ingredients.
Q: "I need to return the maxi-glide for repair. Please tell me how to do this. Thanks!"
CHS: Please contact the store or online supplier where you purchased Maxiglide. We do not sell Maxiglide but rather link to sites that do. The company you purchased from should be able to provide you with the information. There should also be a guarantee with your purchase.
Q: "I was just wondering if it is possible to apply a texturizer to relaxed hair or if you just have to place it on new growth. I am in the process of transitioning and I really would like to texturize my hair but it has only been a little over two months since I haven't gotten my hair relaxed and I do not have that much new growth. Can I use a texturizer or would you advise something else?"
CHS: Yes, you can texturize your hair but the texturizer/relaxer should only be applied on the new growth. Never apply a relaxer on already relaxed hair as this could lead to breakage and damage of your hair.
