Keywords:African hair type, natural hair, hair care practices, Black hair
The African hair type is unique in its structure, though biochemically like naturally straight hair. Many women of African descent these days prefer to keep their natural hair and shun chemical and non-chemical hair straightening. Healthy hair care practices are essential to maintenance of natural black hair. Poor hair care practices may lead to quite severe hair damage.
There is unbridled access to a myriad of information on the world wide web today with a lot of this information being at best inaccurate. This has made it increasingly important for physicians to be able to advise their patients on appropriate healthy hair care practices for their hair type.
