Females with African hair should always deep-condition their hair

As a chemical engineer I can confirm this, it's not nonsense or just a new trend from the new millennium. Let me explain why.

Hair consists of keratin, a protein. Keratin is a protein that occurs as a structural element in animals and is a classic example of a fiber protein. Proteins are large biological molecules consisting of one or more chains of amino acids. The low pH of the conditioner protonates the amino acids, providing the hair with positive charge and thus more hydrogen bonds among the keratin scales, giving the hair a more compact structure. When this chemical reaction has happened, the hair will be easier to comb, it will be smooth, soft and shiny, also by the oils which are in the conditioner to coat your hair.


African hair is usually very curly and rougher in nature, but their are many different kinds of African hair. Strong African hair (kinky/hard hair) feels rough, but it doesn't have to be! Conditioning your hair, using masks, oils, etc. on a regular basis will make/keep your hair very fit, smooth and shiny. So appearantly all these years, we have treated our natural African hair very wrong, because we didn't know these things, but times are finally changing for our benefit. You can have long hair too as a black woman with African hair! Take a look at this video How to get long African hair.

Good luck!

  1. Really??? Thanks for this info! You know so many African women are not content with their hair. That's why they wear wigs, weaves, etc. But the video you mentioned clearly shows that it's possible to have nice long hair! Thanks for this post. xx

    1. You're welcome! Yes I know that many black women (not only Africans) aren't content with their, because of the stereotyping, and somehow we believe it. African hair is nice and has always been. You can do so many things with our hair!

      Good luck ;-)
