The natural hair movement has become more popular in the Black community now that people have become better educated regarding hair care and have turned to natural hairstyles. Previous generations focused more on chemical straightening products, hair grease, and the infamous spritz product to help keep our hair in place.
Now the hair industry has more products to choose from that focus on the overall health of one’s hair, Black women and men are embracing their crowning glory by using products that help define their curl pattern, stretch their curls, hydrate their curls, or even lock in moisture. One of the many products that promote health and help to lock in moisture is hair growth oil.
According to the “Insider,” “Hair oils may help lubricate and strengthen your hair shaft to prevent breakage,” said Alpana Mohta, a board-certified dermatologist and medical advisor for Better Goods.
