Hair products aimed at preventing hair loss and to stimulate healthy hair growth are huge in the ethnic hair market. Think of the famous T444Z and the flourish of the Jamaican Black Castor Oil (JBCO). Sadly, a hairline cannot be expected to remain healthy and strong as long as we accept the discomfort we suffer due to our hair being pulled too tight as the price to pay for beauty. You may suffer for a few days, but in a lifetime of suffering for beauty, the price to pay may well be permanent hair loss and wig imprisonment.
A lifetime in wigs can be limiting, so, my friend and former salon owner, Zama Dlamini and I decided to do a bit of research on the JBCO. We liked what we read and got impressed by what we saw so much, we had to get our hands on this oil and that is more or less how we found ourselves talking with a company that bottles Jamaican Black Castor Oil in Bethlehem, South Africa. Compared to American imports, this makes their JBCO that much more accessible and affordable, while maintaining the same standards.
As the wheels are truly in motion, I am excited to announce that, by next week, Wooden Mirror will be in a position to distribute Umera Jamaican Black Castor Oil to ladies all over South Africa. Indeed, there is no reason not to strengthen your hairline and grow stronger, healthier hair beyond the 2015 winter.
Braids and weaves may be the reason behind a thinning hairline, but they are not the root cause. The rough handling of the natural hair when we get styled and the subsequent lack of beneficial hair care are to blame for the flying dog among ethnic women. Inj’ibhabha is not only a concerning issue to braids and weave wearers, not by a long shot. Ladies with voluminous Afros, elaborately styled dreadlocks as well as my coloured sisters, all of us are not immune. Our hair is fragile and very dry, so, when we fail to treat it right, it breaks or fails to grow.
To treat your hair for keeps, take a minute or to drop us a message via our Wooden Mirror Facebook page or email us to firstname.lastname@example.org. We promise to hook you up with your very own Umera Black Jamaican Castor Oil bottle.
You have nothing to lose, but a hairline to save.
With love and warm hugs,
