Healthy Hair Products for African American Women With Dry Stressed Hair

What’s worse? Running your fingers through your hair and hearing the strands snap because they’re so dry, or looking at your hair in the mirror and seeing absolutely no sheen? Both scenarios are equally horrifying. I gasp at the thought of either scenario occurring! The opposite of dry and dull hair is Michelle Obama’s healthy looking tresses, which is what every woman desires for herself. Now there are healthy hair products for African American women with dry, stressed hair.

So what if you don’t have White House glam squad money, it only costs $3.99 for Smooth ‘N Shine Nourishing Balm ( & to get your locks looking as fabulous as Mrs. O’s. Promoted as a therapeutic treatment to alleviate dry scalp, Smooth ‘N Shine also promotes stronger and healthier hair, and adds an incredible shine to your hair while leaving the gentle scent of coconut oil in your hair to drive the men nuts and not annoy you!

A necessary component for all healthy hair is hydration, and we see that Mrs. O is clearly in no short supply of this. Gavin Harwin, stylist and Infusium 23’s hair health expert gives his suggestion on how to get the curly hairdo worn by Ms. Obama. He says to use the products within the “Infusiusm 23’s Moisture Replenisher Collection (shampoo, conditioner and leave-in treatment) which relies on an exclusive I-23 complex that transforms dry, dull hair into silky, soft, deeply-moisturized locks!

  • Step 1: Use a large barreled curling iron, create curls throughout your entire mane.
  • Step 2: When finished, run your fingers through the curls to make them looser and more natural looking.
  • Step 3: Finish with a light spritz of hair spray to hold the style.


Tip: Restore moisture with hot oil treatments. Use the olive oil from your kitchen cabinet to give yourself a weekly or bi-weekly hot oil treatment. Warm about two tablespoons in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Massage it in and sit with a plastic bag on your head for about ten to fifteen minutes and rinse. Follow with a shampoo and conditioner.
