Natural hair is hair whose texture hasn't been altered by chemical straighteners, including relaxers and texturizers. Pressed hair may still be considered natural because once washed, the texture usually returns to its unaltered state (as long as no heat damage has occurred).
If you’re transitioning to natural hair, or thinking of transitioning then choosing the best products to help you through. Finding the best paraben free shampoo for natural hair is a first step in a sometimes challenging journey.
So why should you insist that your shampoo is paraben free? Parabens are chemicals that have been used since the 1950’s to prevent bacteria and act as preservatives. Studies have shown that some parabens can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells and has been associated with certain forms of breast cancer. Basically, it’s a good idea to avoid them.
Natural hair tends to be drier to the touch than other hair textures and fragile. It’s nearly impossible to over-condition and due to it’s delicate texture needs to be handled with care. This is also the reason paraben and sulfate free shampoos are advisable for natural curls.
For natural hair and it’s sensitive nature it’s best to avoid anything that strips it of oil and irritates the skin. In the transition phase natural hair can be very weak and break at where the natural hair meets the treated hair. We suggest using a combination of Reform Beauty’s paraben free Repair shampoos and conditioners and treating it as much as you like with Reform hair oil and treatment masque. They will help your hair feel great, provide UV protection and hydrate and strengthen your natural hair all without exposure to possibly hazardous chemicals.
How you wear your hair should be no one's decision but your own. If you want natural hair, it may take some work, but you can rock it.
