5 Benefits of Bamboo For Beautiful Hair

It is an exciting time to be natural!  For one, we are living the dream of nurturing and loving our tresses. For two, you cannot go one single solitary week without hearing about another all natural oil, plant or tea that is here to make your hair more gorgeous than ever!  Too much?  Sorry, just loving the natural life!

The next new (but not really) wonder our earth has to offer for gorgeous tresses is bamboo.  Bamboo is a grass belonging to the subfamily Bambusoideae and is a fast growing natural resource with over 1200 different species that grow world-wide.  Bamboo is a self-generating natural resource that provides considerable environmental benefits.  

Everything You Need To Go Silicone-Free

Some curlies love silicones (also known as "cones") while many hate them. My hair loves them for about two days and then my hair accumulates product buildup and becomes weighty; a not so great feeling that makes me regret those two days when I was swinging my head like a little girl’s first press 'n' curl, but I digress.
WHAT ARE SILICONES
NaturallyCurly Curl Chemist Tonya McKay says that silicones (inorganic) are made up of a backbone of repeating units of silicon bonded to oxygen, with small organic molecules forming a sheath around the outside of the molecule. They are used in rinse-off conditioners, intensive treatment conditioners and leave-in conditioners, where they reduce combing friction, provide an emollient effect, impart gloss, and reduce static charge between hair strands.

Do Your Nails Grow Faster Than Your Hair?

Does hair grow faster or slower than fingernails or toenails? All three are made of keratin, a strong protein that is also present in animal hooves, so we assume that they would grow at the same rate, but do they? First let's discuss what we are dealing with.  
Both hair and nails have living parts, but those living parts are beneath the skin. Hair and nails grow out from a matrix, which for our hair turns into our hair follicle; for our nails it is the nail bed or nail plate. Audrey Sivasothy says, “Cells grow out from the matrix, and older cells eventually are pushed out by newer cells growing in. The newer cells cause the older cells to become compacted, and as the cells are further removed from their blood supply, they form keratin proteins and begin to harden into the hair fiber, or nail, that we see.” Hair and nails are the results and are known as keratinization, which is what makes our hair and nails grow.
