African Caribbean hair is the most vulnerable to damage due to its unique structure, and requires carefully formulated, ultra-hydrating yet lightweight products.
The hair shaft is flat with a twisted structure and a fine diameter. The twists and curls are weak points along the hair, and strands are therefore prone to breakage.
Because African Caribbean hair is curly, it also tangles easily. Trying to detangle it can worsen hair breakage if you’re not careful and pulling may also lead to traction loss. As such, be as gentle as possible. Start at the ends and work up to your roots with a wide-tooth comb.
