Week Two: The Anatomy and Science of Hair


Hey Natural Curlies!

Anyone that values the beauty of healthy hair will and should be interested in this topic. Today we will focus on various aspects about what is growing on your head. In order for us to take good care of our mane, we must know what causes it to grow, what disables it from growing, and what can damage it in the process.

We will focus on hair follicles, what makes up a hair shaft, and come up with several techniques on how to protect all of those things. Here is KimmayTube breaking down the structure of hair so we can ALL understand it.



Sure, every head is not the same, but the goal of retaining a healthy head of hair is universal! Here is some more basic information from another youtuber!

  3. I also just saw Kimmaytube review a new book called "The Science of Black Hair." after seeing her review I purchased a copy for my Kindle app and one of the first chapters is devoted to explaining this same information. Thank you for providing an opportunity through this hair challenge to teach and discuss beyond products and styles. Forums like this play a big part in our black hair movement. Keep them coming!!!

  7. Oh man I have my fill of information for today. I clicked on every link, and every link attached to that link.The videos got me wondering and thirsty for more information. What should have only taken me about 25 minutes turned into three hours. I watched more youtube videos about hair, I rewatched some of MahoganyCurls youtube videos, and some I haven't seen before. I have definitely learned alot today and I am going to take what I know and use it in a manner that helps me to better care for my hair. Thank you so much Kimmaytube and Curls of Joy. I feel that this challenge is really going to help me on my hair journey, and since I am newly curly I have a lot to learn.

  8. Yes, this info was very helpful. I actually watched Kimmaytube's video series on the structure of hair & pH balance a couple of months ago, but it was great to get a recap of the information. Starting with the basics and science of hair is definitely a great start for the challenge. Thanks so much!

  11. I think this is great. I think that in order to take care of something properly, you have to know about what makes it the way it is (biology nerd here) so this is really useful information for all of us who want to learn how to take care of our natural hair.

  12. Week Two: The Anatomy and Science of My Hair


    What a great way to start Week Two of the challenge by learning the anatomy and science of MY HAIR. I am a visual learner so the Kimmytube video series on the Structure of Hair was more than amazing.
    I found myself viewing one video after another completely enthralled in each instructional video.
    I had no idea how PH affects my hair and the importance of sealing the cuticle. I am working to develop a Kimmytube inspired hair regiment .

    Check out my new healthy hair regiment at my blogspot: http://tracksbygod.blogspot.com/2012/04/week-two.html

  13. Love! Love! Love!

    I always wondered why chemo patients experienced losing their hair. Make sense: Chemo kills rapid growing cells.

    I enjoy learning the details that we over look some times.

    Thanks chica!!!

  18. I love Kimmaytube... Her site was what made me fully make up my mind to grow healthier longer hair. The link above actually had me thinking... The first fact where she mentioned that the follicles are predetermined and also that when a spot is bald that means that the follicles are dead. I have to disagree with that. Reason being is I have had a ball spot on the back right side of my head since high school. Once I decided to go natural and I found myself massaging my scalp more that hair began to grow,its not as thick as the rest but it's coming back.....
