A friend of ours recently asked us to write an article on the delicate hair care needs of African-American women and other ladies of color.
And that mission has brought us to a wonderful website, treasuredlocks. We were blown away by the variety of hair products with very informative descriptions, as well as a 'Reading Room' on the site, where one can find super hair tips on styling and caring for your 'treasured locks.'
Ask any woman about their hair, and well, if you're having a good day, it's because your hair is looking fine. When your hair looks lousy, it can upset the balance in your life.
We have always admired Diana Ross and her beautiful, big hair. We don't know if it were all her hair, but it doesn't matter, because she could always pull off that look. She had an incredible mane. Little did we know that black hair is very fragile and needs lots of TLC, or tender loving care, to encourage its maximum growth potential. And that is where we found a bounty of hard-to-find brands and even Treasured Locks' line of hair products.
Let's take a look at Treasured Locks' own H2G Hair Growth Serum ($19.99, 4 oz. bottle). We were drawn to this product, because it contains emu oil, which scientific data shows has such promise in stimulating hair growth. Emu oil is able to penetrate through several layers of the dermis, and is good for the scalp, and discourages inflammation.
This is how the website describes their H2G Hair Growth Serum:
"While nothing can give you instantly longer hair, there are ways to maximize the amount of hair you have. By keeping your scalp healthy, maintaining the proper moisture and oil balance on your hair and getting the proper nutrition, you can make sure your hair grows at its maximum rate and does not break off. This is the secret to long and strong hair.
Treasured Locks H2G Hair Growth Serum is a blend of all natural ingredients scientifically proven to promote longer, healthier hair. Made from the highest quality Emu oil (AEA food grade certified), naturally extracted carrier oils and a proprietary blend of the finest quality, steam-distilled essential oils, our serum is unlike any other on the market."
