Natural Hair || How My Hair Growth Took Off When I Started Using Natural, Raw Ingredients
I remember watching Kimmaytube on YouTube as she was discussing the pH balance of hair and how it is important to use products that are close to the same ph as our curly hair which is between 4.5 and 5.5. Using hair products that are similar in pH cause the cuticle to remain closed, thus reducing frizz, increasing shine and softness. As soon as I heard this, I was scouring British Curlies Website, (back then this was the only place us UK naturals could get US products from) for the Ph balanced hair products.
The only pH balanced products I found during that time were from the Komaza Care product line. So, with my uncontrollable product junkie self, I purchased the shampoo, conditioner, leave-in, moisturizer and styler from the Califa Care line which is for thick kinky hair. I wasn’t playing! I wanted my hair to grow and be healthy.
After the first use, I realized products that are predominantly made with natural ingredients suited my hair. It was amazing. My hair had never felt so good. Purchasing those products was the best decision I could have made in my healthy hair care journey. I noticed a tremendous difference in the softness, pliability and increased health to my hair.
