Thinning Hair Amongst Black Women
Frankly, thinning hair affects women of all races. But, for black women it is a common problem due to improperly installing braids and weaves and various hair treatments.
How your hair grows is largely dictated by genetics. However, many black women experience hair loss through aging, stress or as a side effect from medication and chemical hair products. You should consult your doctor if you are worried about your hair loss.
Frequency Of Shampooing Afro Textured Hair
Many black women try to avoid shampooing their hair too much when it begins to thin. However, when you shampoo your hair, the hair follicles that have already become detached from the skin simply fall out as you disturb them. On average you lose 100 hairs a day from your head. This can be through brushing, shampooing or generally playing with your hair.
Black Women Hair Growth
You can encourage new hair growth by massaging your head to stimulate blood flow in the scalp. We would suggest that you avoid using hot oil or conditioning treatments and avoid tension on the scalp such as braiding.
We would also suggest taking a course of hair growth supplements and increasing your protein and zinc intake within your daily diet. A well-balanced nutritional diet and a general good state of health can all have a positive effect on hair growth and hair loss.
