Products that contain mineral oil or petroleum is very bad for the hair..they clog up the pores and don't allow the scape to breath. Sometime this prevent growth. A lot of the products for black ppl hair contain mineral oil and petroleum. There are products out there that contain natural oils. Look for for those products. I love the African Pride Herbal Oil it made wth all natural oil that are healthy for the hair. Another one of my favorites is Kids Organic Shea Butter works great on the hair and contain no mineral oils or petroleum. lastly find a good leave in conditioner i love Garner Fructis leave in conditioning Cream Sleek and Shine. Herbal Essense has some good conditioner too.

Thanks so much for posting all these sites to check out!!! I'm always looking for better products for my daughters hair. My son got my hair, my daughter got a mix of both me and my husbands, and so far she hates her hair. I want her to love her hair.

What about Olive Oil hair lotion?  It seems to be working pretty well, but.... things always work good at first.
