Before choosing your staple product(tips for the product junkie and the clueless Afro woman)
Posted January 15th, 2018

Many people believe in miracle products. We are constantly bombarded with imaged of glowing black curls and miraculously restored hair loss patches or hair lines. Deceptive pictures pop up on our social media timelines about how product X grew the hairline in two weeks i.e. “restore you hairline in TWO WEEKS”. For some of us who have been struggling with the illusion of obtaining perfect hair far too often grab our wallets without questioning and purchase the miraculous products only to be disappointed two weeks later when our hairline has still not recovered and we are $100 poorer.


Transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair
Posted January 9th, 2018

Do you want to rock an afro but are weary of cutting all your locks of to start the natural hair journey? Fear not, there is a less drastic way of rocking a fro without going bold.

Firstly keep your hair and stop relaxing, this will allow your roots to grow out with not chemical treatment to it. This process is messy as you have two different types if hair textures on your hair and they require different hair care routines. This is the part where your hair might look messy as you try to navigate yourself past this phase.


How to recover your hairline

Hello Brownchild

Many ladies write to us looking for a miracle product that can restore the hairline to its former glory but the truth is that damage to the hair line has taken many years to occur and it will take time to restore. There are no miracle concoctions to bring back the hair line and I am sorry to be the bearer of the bad news.

What causes hair line damage you ask?

Hello Brownchild

 

During my day to day business as I promote Brownchild and its AMAZING hair care range, I come across various questions. Some people ask " what ingredients does your product contain?" others will ask " How do they work together?" and other will ask "Do I need the conditioner?" I know during cost cutting measures and saving on the budget, the conditioner will be the first to go on your shopping list, but I hope after reading this article, you'll reconsider ever removing conditioner from your shopping list or even your wash day routine.
