I can’t tell you how many times I’m asked for product recommendations like the perfect product will reverse years of bad hair care practices and years of accumulated damage. I really wish it were that simple. Trust me. If there was a magicalproduct that would solve all our hair care woes, I would recommend it in aheartbeat.
The truth is that there isn’t a perfect product out there than can replace good solid hair care practices. In this case, when I say hair care practices,I’m referring to how you handle your hair. The way that you handle your hair is far more important than what productsyou use in your hair.
Let’s think about this. Would it matter the shampoo or conditioner you use if you wash your hair only once a month? No, it wouldn’t because infrequent washing causes much more harm to your hair than whatever products you use. Does it matter what you use as a leave-in conditioner if you rip through your hair when you detangle it? No, it doesn’t. Regardless of what leave-in conditioner you are using, mishandling your hair will cause split ends and breakage.
If you chemically process (relax, color, etc.) damaged hair, does it matter what deep conditioner you use? No, it doesn’t. No deep conditioner in the world can overcome the amount of damage caused to your hair via relaxers and hair color. If you wear weaves and braids that are too tight or neglect your natural hair underneath, there is no product (shampoo, conditioner, scalp treatment, deep conditioner, hair oil, leave-in conditioner, etc.) that will reverse the damage you have caused.
I say all of this to say that yes, there are products that are better than others on the market. However, it doesn’t matter what product you use if you are mishandling your hair and lack basic hair care knowledge. Stop looking for the holy grail product that will fix your hair care problems, and instead assess which step in your current regimen is causing your hair to break off and not grow.
