I have always wanted to make my own hair and beauty products for years.I have finally decided to start doing it.Due to that report that came out ,saying that black women hair products were toxic compare to white women hair products.I have had enough.So many hair and beauty products have names of things I can’t even pronounce and have many toxic things in them.I would love to make my own products and sell them to other black women.I was always unsure and thought who going to buy my products. But I looked at how many Asian men are selling products to black people especially black women .And they don’t think there race or gender stops them from selling things that arent catered for them.Every black women knows what it is to go in the hair shop run by Asian men and be follow around like your going to steal something.I feel like I know what black women want as I am a black woman.
\Here’s some of things I want to put in my Hair & Beatty products .I want to try to use natural ingredients and natural preservatives .As we know many black women hair products are toxic.
Here the list of some of the things I am going to be using to make beauty and hair products.
Mango Butter , I love Mangoes and they taste lovely too .And smell lovely too. I will use Mango essential oil and the Mango butter . It has high levels of antioxidants and vitamins, and it is ideal for protecting against harmful sun rays. High levels of saturated and monosaturated fatty acids make it useful for hair. The emollience of the butter is helpful for natural hair because it seals and protects the strand.
Shea Butter is
- Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
- Reduces Inflammation: A 2010 study found that due to its cinnamic acid and other natural properties, shea butter was anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially help avoid skin mutations. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.
- Skin Smoothing: Shea butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying. With long-term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.
Sealant for the hair
Curly coily hair has the tendency to be dryer than any type of hair due to the texture. The natural sebum from the scalp has a hard time sliding down the shaft to the ends because of the bends or coils of black hair. Shea butter is frequently found in curly hair treatments because of its emolliating qualities. This makes it excellent for locking in moisture without leaving your hair greasy and heavy. Since it aids in fastening moisture into hair it’s fantastic for keeping your hair protected against the weather.
Protection Against Heat
Shea butter does not sit on the hair, instead it absorbs into the hair strand/shaft without leaving a greasy or heavy feel. However it does coat the hair shaft so that it is protected against damage from the heat tool being passed along the hair.
Shield Against UVS
Shea butter is believed to have a low amount but sufficient SPF to protect your hair against the damage from ultra violet rays of the sun. This is definitely beneficial for processed or color treated hair.
Softener for hair
Shea butter is great for softening hard brittle hair. It’s an excellent moisturizer, and therefore offers that advantage for dried as well as fragile curly hair.
Lemon Oil and Juice has anti-fungal properties that help maintain scalp health. It helps control the production of oil in your scalp. Lemon juice also helps stimulate re-growth from hair follicles. Lemon oil is one of the most popular citrus essential oils because of its versatility and powerful antioxidant properties.
The health benefits of lemon essential oil have been well established scientifically. Lemon is best known for its ability to cleanse toxins from the body and it’s widely used to stimulate lymphatic drainage, rejuvenate energy, purify skin, and fight bacteria and fungi
Glycerin retains the water and prevents drying the hair. Thereby it promotes the hair length. Glycerin can also be used for the scalp for application in order to retain the moisture for the hair growth. Glycerin has a great moisturizer and humectants for hair. Proper care should be taken to protect from environments and can have moderate humidity. Thus, the very hot and humid climate can dehydrate your body and also make your hair dry. Glycerin can absorb a lot of moisture from the air and causes hair to swell. This helps to raise the cuticle and also disrupts the curly pattern, creates coarse, frizzy hair. This is extremely dry and seeks to moisturize your hair to dehydrate and can damage breakage.
Aloe Vera Juice
Macadamia nut Oil
You can use avocado as the fruit or oil for your hair. The oil itself is rich in:
- essential fatty acids
- vitamins A, B-5, and E
Red Palm oil
Red palm oil has been used for thousands of years by my mothers ,mothers and fathers fathers for thousands of years in Africa .We use it for everything from cooking to skin and hair care.
Red palm oil is rich in vitamin E and benefits the hair , by promoting cell growth of the hair follicles, which results in stronger hair. Vitamin E also decreases graying of the hair and hair loss. The carotenes in red palm oil is also responsible for the growth and division of cells and will prevent the hair from becoming weak and brittle. Oilypedia says that the saturated fats and lipids make this a perfect moisturizer for our skin and hair.
