Hair Dryers for Black or Afro Hair in the UK

Hi All

Every so often I get requests from people about the best afro hair dryer on the market. I completely love my Toni & Guy Moisture Lock Afro Hair Dryer which I have used occasionally over the last 5 years. Unfortunately a bit harder to find.

Some Hair Dryer Tips:
* Use a good heat protectant
* Try not to blow dry the hair until bone dry.
* Remember not use shampoos that strip natural oils,
* Drink plenty of water
* Use deep conditioning treatments at least one a month

Doing these things can stop hair from becoming brittle and dry.

If you are the US and looking for a good hairdryer some of the best on the market are:
* Chi Rocket Hair Dryer
BaByliss Pro Porcelin Ceramic Dryer
Andis Ceramic Ionic Dryer

Unfortunately theses are quite difficult to get hold of here in the UK.

You will be looking for words like Ceramic, Tourmaline or Ionic when choosing a good hair dryer for your hair. There are very few specifically for Afro Hair available in the UK. However these are a few that would work well with this hair type.

You may need to buy a Pik Attachment separately

How does Chlorine affect Your Hair?

I talk about swimming and maintaining your hair after swimming a lot on AfroDeity. It is one of my favourite past times and it is great exercise. You can even do it when you are pregnant. My only problem with swimming is the effect it can have on my hair and I am constantly wary of damage. 

I used to always wear a swim hat but their are occasions where you might not. Pool party for kids or taking the kids to the local swimming pool seems a bit over kill for a swim hat( that being said, I wear mine anyway.)

So what the big deal anyway, why not just wash it out when you are done. 
As any Mum will know covering your hair isn't always an option (well it is but a much less glamorous one), but as I've mentioned previously there are lots of great swimming shampoos or I at least try to find one with citric acid in it, which is known to help in  removing chlorine from skin and hair.

So what effect does chlorine have on your hair?
Chlorine is usually added to pol water to help in stopping growth of microorganisms in the pool. For a public pool that sounds like a good thing!

Chlorine directly reacts chemically with hair and can changes its physical properties of the hair, as well as by changing electrical charge of minerals bonded to hair and reacting with those minerals.

* Chlorine can directly react with oils that cover the hair and proteins that form the hair shaft causing a checvmiacl change. th eremoval of oils results in loss of hair shine and flexibility, as well as making them more susceptible to mechanical damage. 

Chlorine reacts with with keratin resulting in creation of water-soluble chemicals and weakens chemical bonds between fibres forming hair shafts. * Water soluable - water loving*

Chlorine can get between hair fibres. A crystallization process develops inside the hair, and the chlorine crystals can separate the hair fibres disrupting structural integrity of hair shaft. Once the bonds are broken, the hair becomes weak and ends of the hairs split. 

The hair cuticle can also be affected by this chlorine salt crystallization process. The cuticle is an outer layer of very hard, dead cells over the hair surface. If chlorine gets between the scales of the cuticle, it could push up the scales,, making it rough and prone to damage or breakage. These flaked cuticles reflect light poorly and  the hair fibre looks dull, dry and may feel rough when touched.

Chlorine can change electrical charge of minerals bonded to hair and oxidize those minerals.
Hope this all makes sesnse

Hair Supplement: GoldCrush

Hi All, 

I wanted to introduce you to another great new product. I had the good fortune of meeting Alicia Gold at a Keziah Connections event last year and again early this year at a beauty conference. I am so amazed at just how much this young woman has accomplished in such a short time. When we met last year she was just about to launch and now Gold Crush is everywhere. Impressed... I am! 

I also love the fact that GoldCrush promotes the best of British, produced in the United Kingdom, proudly supporting British manufacturing. 

Alicia  created the product after being diagnosed with PCOS, which can cause hormone imbalances, acne and thinning hair. 

So what is Gold Crush all about...

GoldCrush Launches Revolutionary Beauty Vitamin With No Toxic Fillers

London-based beauty supplement company, GoldCrush has announced the launch of a super vitamin with a difference. The unique formula contains 21 key nutrients for healthy hair and is one of only of a few such supplements available in the UK completely free from any bulking agents or fillers. 

GoldCrush Hair supplements have been specially created to nourish hair, skin and nails for optimal growth and cell regeneration. The formulation, containing a blend of vitamins and minerals including Zinc, Selenium and Vitamins A, B and C; when taken daily as part of a haircare routine, helps to improve general health and physical appearance with visible results in just two weeks. 
Alicia Gold, founder and creator of GoldCrush said, “GoldCrush Hair Vitamins are formulated to help boost nutrients in the body and feed the follicles, which in turn contributes to maintenance of healthy hair, skin and nails. What we put into our bodies is just as important as the styling and cleansing products we use topically. The formula’s active ingredients include Biotin, MSM, Bamboo Silica, Collagen and Spirulina but what is perhaps more significant is what has been mindfully omitted from the formulation.”

Most direct competitor brands available both on the highstreet and online, contain bulking agents and fillers such as Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, hydrogenated oils and colourants. These ingredients, as well as generally reducing the efficacy of vitamins, have a been linked to a number of possible side effects including suppression of the immune system and blocking nutrients from entering the bloodstream. 

Gold added, “Our mantra is beauty, without the ugly fillers. I had in mind the need to create a supplement of the highest quality without compromise. Lower quality supplements increase the likelihood of ingredients being unrecognised by our bodies and thus the ability of the nutrients to be absorbed.” 

GoldCrush Hair Vitamins suitable for vegetarians free from parabens, artificial colourings, hydrogenated oils, MSG and preservatives. The vitamins are also free from added sugar, artificial colourings, gluten, wheat and lactose.

Moisture Retention – Tips for Natural Hair
The key to the healthiest of natural hair is moisture. Although water was once seen as the enemy when it came to natural hair, now it is embraced as one of the main components of keeping the hair in its best condition. Moisturising your hair will not only reduce the amount of breakage, but it will also help maintain the elasticity and strength of the hair as well.  Locking the moisture in with oils, creams, and protective hairstyles are also important when it comes to keeping the hair moisturised. By sealing the hair shaft with an oil or cream, it guarantees that the water will not evaporate from the hair and leave it dry, therefore retaining the moisture. 

How Do I Know if My Hair Needs Moisture?
When your hair is in need of moisture, it will:
* Have a dry, crackling/crunchy sound 
* Feel rough/dry
* Break very easily
* Show no signs of elasticity

Since everyone’s hair type is different, each person will show a variety of different signs and will require different regimens. For example, if your hair naturally has a rough texture, that characteristic may not be one of your tell-tale signs that you need to moisturise your hair. If you honestly don’t know what signs indicate that your hair needs moisture, go a week without moisturising your hair and examine how it feels, sounds, sheds and whether or not it breaks. Once you see how your hair reacts to needing moisture, moisturise it and take a mental note of the differences you see. Now that you have an idea of how your hair is when it’s in need of moisture, here are a few key tips for 
moisturising and retention. 

Deep Condition Every Time You Wash the Hair
Deep conditioning is very important when it comes to moisturisation. Using a deep conditioner will repair any damage that the hair has undergone in order to keep the shaft healthy. When the cuticle is damaged it will not lay flat which allows moisture to escape and evaporate, causing dry hair. By using a deep conditioner that strengthens and moisturizes, the cuticle will be able to lay flat again and retain the moisture that the conditioner provides. A great deep conditioner that I use for when my hair is damaged is the Silicon Mix Bambu Hair Treatment by Avanti. Since the product contains silicon, the hair shaft will be repaired and protected from further damage. The silicon also acts as a sealant by locking the water into the cuticle and acting as a barrier against humidity as well as heat damage. Here’s how I use it:
* Cleanse the scalp and hair with a shampoo or cleansing conditioner.
* After parting the hair into workable sections, coat each section with a liberal amount of conditioner. 
* Cover with a plastic cap and leave on for 15-30 minutes. You can also opt to sit under a dryer for 10 minutes, just make sure you leave the conditioner on long enough to fully penetrate the hair shaft in order to reap the full benefit. 
* Detangle hair and rinse out. 

Apply a Water-Based Leave-In Conditioner
Using a water-based leave-in is essential when trying to retain moisture because water is technically the only thing that can moisturise the hair. I know what you’re thinking, “if that’s the case, why don’t we just use water and leave it at that?” In addition to the water, leave-in conditioners usually contain proteins, vitamins, nutrients and other beneficial ingredients that will improve the overall health of the hair. Using this in conjunction with the deep conditioner will not only allow the hair to repair faster, but it will also aid in the moisturising process.  To use, work the leave-in from the roots to the ends, making sure to focus on the ends since it is the oldest part of your hair. 

This is the most important step when it comes to moisture retention. Water has the tendency to evaporate from natural hair the easiest which is what makes the hair seem so dry. Since our sebum- the natural oil produced by the scalp- cannot make its way down the hair shaft, the water is not sealed into the hair and it winds up evaporating. If you want your hair to remain moisturised for a longer period of time, you will need to seal the shaft with an oil or butter after applying your leave-in conditioner.

While you may not need to repeat the deep conditioning treatment until the next time you wash your hair, you will need to re-moisturise your hair with a little bit of water or leave-in and seal it again with oil. Depending on your hair type and the style you’re currently wearing, you may need to repeat your moisturisation routine multiple times in between washes. 

This obviously isn’t a regimen that you’ll be able to conduct if you’re wearing your hair straightened, but keep in mind the fact that it will need to be done eventually. Not giving your hair the proper amount of moisture will lead to damage, and eventually breakage so set aside a week or two where you’ll be able to pay close attention to your hair and its needs.

Product Review: Highlights on Afro Hair with ColorCones

ColorCones Review -Precise Hair Colouring

I love new innovative products that make our lives easier, so when I was introduced to the concept of ColorCones I jumped at the chance to try them. They are marketed as 'Precise Hair Colour' and I completely understand why! You are able to target specific parts of your hair for highlighting, ombre and retouching. Also for Afro Caribbean Hair where foils can be tricky I found these and excellent alternative.

Each re-usable kit contains:
 16 x Cones
2 x Special Applicator Brushes
6 x pin Tools
16 x Indicator Lids
Instruction Leaflet
'Clam' pack for storage

These cones seemed perfect for Afro Hair due to their unique shape. Unlike foil where the hair has to lie flat, the cones seemed more likely to be to hold a mass of my curly hair quite neatly.  I have never had highlights and I dyed my hair blue once some 17 years ago. Also even though I relaxed my hair at home quite happily many years ago, doing highlights didn't seem like something I could do myself. 

How was it?
Loved using these, do easy to pull onto the hair. However I think I put too much hair in each cone, so the dye didn't go up to  the root. This us actually one if the best things about this cones.  The ability to put them right up the root and minimal dye touches your scalp. When the Cones are removed they pull any excess dye off with them.

Due to mistake of putting too much hair on each cone there was a slight area up to the root that didn't get dyed.

Putting ColorCones on my Afro Hair

All in all perfect for curly hair. Especially for a first timer who had never had highlights before.  This was exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend to anyone looking to add highlights or ombre their hair.

Where to Buy?


My tips for using ColorCones
* Get a second pair if hands if you've never done this before.  Also having someone else there makes it easier to keep dye iff your skin and face.

* Dont put too much hair in each cone. Even though they are wide, too much hair will mean you cannot  go up to the root for touch ups. On the other hand for ombre styles this wont matter too much.

* The yellow caps are quite fiddly. I didn't end up using them but they are great to help you know which ones you've done already. I didn't end up using these.

* I found it easier to just apply with my fingers (gloved) rather than a brush.

Here is an instructional video giving you more of an idea on how to use the ColorCones.

What Can you Use ColorCones for?

My final results, I loved this as it just showed a tinge of reddy blonde. I may go a bit more flamboyant next time but but now I just wanted sun kissed highlights for me really. I also chose quite a light colour for my dark brown hair.

If you have a new or innovative product or design that you want Leilu to talk about just send me an email at leilu@afrodeity.co.uk.

Can Dry Shampoo be used on Afro, Curly, Kinky Hair?

Can Dry Shampoo be used on Afro, Curly, Kinky Hair?

Hi All,

So this is an odd one, I never really thought that dry shampoo could be used on my hair at all. It just seemed counter to everything you are told about moisture, moisture, moisture for  your hair

So why use dry shampoo?
After  a long week or constant work outs, hair can become oily, itchy and weighed down. So I know for those of you that visit the gym regularly, these can be great products so as not to have to continuously wash your hair....Right?...

Dry shampoo has seen a resurgence in recent years probably because we have been told not to wash our hair too often and that SLS in mots shampoo strips oil from your hair.

* Reduces the time taken to get hair clean
* Reduces the amount of natural protective oils that may be stripped from the scalp
* Freshens up hair particularly if you have been in a sweaty smoky or smelly environment
For those of you with pressed or hot comb straighten hair, it can make this style last a little longer      without having to add heat to your hair again.
However, as the powder works by absorbing hydrophobic components only, things like hydrophobic natural oils and oil-based styling products, are absorbed by the dry shampoo. Dry shampoo will not remove dirt, skin cels or chemicals that sometimes coat hair and make greasy.

*Hydrophobic - water repelling
*Hydrophillic - water loving

NOTE: This should not replace your wash routine

How shampoos that wash away with water work?

How Dry Shampoo Works?
Unlike traditional shampoos where the hydrophobic components surround the oil and is washed away with the water, This oil attaches to the powder and is instead brushed out of your hair. No washing required.

Some Do's and Dont's for Using Dry Shampoo
  1. Dont hold too close to your hair. Hold at least 6 inches away from your head. 
  2. Dont try to remove it too quickly. Wait the required amount of time before brushing it out of your hair 
  3. Do spray on both roots and ends
  4. Do apply to the entire head not just one spot.
  5. Dont use more than twice a week

Some dry Shampoo's to try today 

Phillip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo

What they say:: To help maintain the well-being of your hair and scalp between washes Philip Kingsley has formulated One More Day Dry Shampoo - a lightweight spray that refreshes and soothes the scalp, absorbing excess sebum whilst providing volume and texture to the hair, leaving you ready for One More Day. One More Day is a dry shampoo packed full of soothing ingredients such as Zinc PCA, Allantoin and Bisabolol that cleanse the scalp; eradicating excess dirt, oil and odour, whilst helping to keep flakes and irritation at bay. 

Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo

What they say: Naturia dry shampoo cleans your hair without water. With the absorbent dry powder, this express beauty routine brings texture and lightness to your hair, making styling easy. It can be used as often as needed and is adapted to everyone's life style. Its fresh scent comes from essential oils for true sensory pleasure.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Original & Classic


One of the most popular
What they say: Instantly hair refresh Banish oil & boost body Dry Shampoo with a clean & classic fragrance Batiste Dry Shampoo banishes oily roots, giving dull, lifeless hair the makeover it needs without any water. A quick burst revitalises hair, adds body and texture and leaves it feeling clean and fresh too. No need to worry about skipping a shampoo. 

 Klorane Oatmilk Gentle Dry Shampoo

What they say: An award-winning formulation with a wealth of celebrity fans, the Klorane Oatmilk Gentle Dry Shampoo is a mild and effective way to cleanse the hair without the need for water. This formulation of the dry shampoo is made up of softening, protective oatmilk extract, corn and rice starch for a thorough cleansing action, natural microspheres (cyclodextrins), and micronised powders with very powerful oil absorbing properties (natural polysaccharides). Dirt, oil and odour are eliminated, and the hair regains volume and freshness in minutes. Simple and practical, the dry shampoo is ideal for busy people, travelling, the gym, and those who want to extend the effects of their blow dry.

Other Dry Shampoos we've noticed, Let us know where you got them, if you get hold of one!
  • TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo
  • Bumble & Bumble Pret a Powder Dry Shampoo
  • Evo Hair Water Killer Dry Shampoo
  • Tressame Fresh Start Moisturising Waterless Foam Shampoos
  • Aveeno Pure renewal Dry Shampoo
