I AM BREAKING UP WITH MY HAIR STYLIST TODAY
African women subject their hair to chemical treatments such as hair straightening and relaxing, and thus modify the structure of their hair shaft, making it more susceptible to damage. For this reason, hair complaints are common among black women and represent a diagnostic challenge to the dermatologist, requiring a thorough clinical examination of the hair and scalp, and a detailed medical history of the patient. The purpose is to warn of the potential side effects and sequelae related to hairstyles and hair treatments used by black women, and to highlight the major diseases that affect this ethnicity.
Unique in appearance and structure, African hair is especially fragile and prone to injury and damage. More than half of African women will cite thinning hair or hair loss as their top hair concern. Almost half of black women experience some form of hair loss. However, few doctors are familiar with black hairstyling practices, leaving many women to sort through unhelpful — or even harmful — advice on their own.
Black women in particular are prone to a type of hair loss called traction alopecia, which is caused by heat, chemicals and tight styles that pull at the hair root, including some braids, dreadlocks, extensions and weaves.
Unfortunately, certain types of hair loss are genetic, and very little can be done to prevent them. Genetic types of hair loss include alopecia areata and female pattern hair loss.
Fortunately, there is a lot Africans can do to help minimize damage and keep their hair beautiful.
1.) Fabrics matter! Our Anewow head wraps are satin head wraps that are best for protecting your hair. African women can wear our satin head wraps instead of a bonnet at night, keeping their hairstyles in place and safe from drying fabrics. The advantage of the satin-lined headwrap compared to other materials such as cotton is that they prevent your hair from dryness. They also protect your hair from breakage, tangles, and thinning. Satin even helps keep your hair hydrated. Sleeping on satin can help retain your hair’s style. So, if you have more time at night to tackle the straightener, do it, put a satin cap over it and sleep in!
2.) Say goodbye to split ends! Sleeping with a satin cap means no more split ends. It protects your hair from the dryness caused by friction between your hair and moisture-absorbing materials such as cotton. This also helps to greatly reduce breakage, tangles and thinning. The cap keeps your hair pulled back and doesn’t cause the headaches you can get from tight ponytails and buns.
3.) To protect your hair from traction alopecia and prevent further damage, Anewow head wraps are great for women who suffer from some level of hair loss. However, this is not the only reason for wearing a head wrap. Covering your hair can protect its health and help to retain its styling. It can help you to retain your silky curly girly hair for much longer than before. To protect your hair from traction alopecia and prevent further damage, Anewow head wraps work best for people with hair loss as they have a soft interior, stay on securely, and provide some coverage over the ears and neckline.
4.) If you do not have immediate access to a hairstylist to care for your hair, our headwrap is a life-saver. If you haven't styled or maintained your hair for a long time, the headwrap is a simple way to cover your head. If you don’t feel like doing your hair in the morning (or the night before!), Anewow head wraps are a great way to keep your coils in check. They’re a perfect solution when your natural hair isn’t cooperating. Our head wraps can be an affordable way to keep hair feeling nourished, while you go about your life in style. You can rock your personal style with an amazing accessory that’s easy to find.
5.) Winter is not curly hair-friendly. The cold and dry air absorbs the moisture from your hair, causing frizz, breakage, and split ends. In the winter, our headwrap works as an insulator and prevents your hair from the cold weather.
6.) Anewow head wraps are easy, quick and regal! They are a quick way to have your hair appear styled in 30 seconds flat. Style your hair into your updo of choice, then throw on a head wrap to transform the look. No special skills required, our head wraps are super easy to tie. Simply put the head wrap on your head, tie the bands around the head wrap and that’s about it, super simple. No matter what you’re wearing, an African headwrap is a sophisticated, easy way to add color and standout style while celebrating your heritage and unique beauty.
Today, headwraps are a favorite accessory worn by women for practically every occasion. Whether you’re headed out for a night on the town or running a few errands, we have head wraps for every occasion to fit your perfectly.
Last but not the least, we have a cherry on the cake, our volumizing Cap which will help you to get a full puff look for your head wraps. This cap can be worn to make the head wrap look puffier either on top or at the back of your head and get a better look of the head wrap. This cap is worn inside the head wrap, protecting the hair, keeping them healthy and organized.
