What We Learned at the Taliah Waajid Health and Beauty Expo


woman washing hair

Why can white women wash their hair every day and black women cannot?

Your scalp secretes sebum, an oil that lubricates the scalp. White women can wash their hair every day because their hair texture is way looser; therefore, the sebum can get to their ends quicker on their hair.  A black woman’s natural hair texture is more curly, which means that the sebum takes a longer time to travel along our curls.
