Dr. Miracle Products are NOT what they seem

So this weekend I attended a game night at a friends house when a beautiful Natural sista walked in. 
At the end of Game Night she complimented my hair asking what rods I used, but I explained that I didn't use rods..just creams and a gel.
I went onto explain my process for caring for my hair and asked what she used on her hair, and her words were DR. MIRACLE'S!!!!
 Her hair looked fine so to speak, but she said I love the way my hair tingles...I was like "that's that tingly stuff that's taking a toll on your hair and you don't even know it. So after that convo, I decided to do a little bit of research on the products in Dr. Miracle

1st - Petrolatum
3rd Mineral Oil
These two ingredients equal = Suffocating and Irritating as it pertains to your scalp.
Research at the Herb Research Foundation, noted that skin absorbs up to 60 percent of the chemicals in products that it contacts and these chemical move directly into the bloodstream. www.livestrong.com

According to Drugs.com, common side effects of mineral oil and petroleum jelly include mild itching, burning, stinging or dry skin. Severe side effects, in those who are allergic, may include rash, hives, difficulty breathing, or swelling of the face, lips, mouth or tongue.

Yes, Ladies this is information that is a little scary and when you look at all of the products in your bathroom, you will probably see it its 95% of your products, and if you look at the products you are putting in your kids hair....welp....same thing!

Going natural isn't just cutting all of your hair off and wearing cut short styles, or twists using the same products you've been using; but you've got to take some time to really care for your hair or your relaxed hair will look better than your natural hair!!! REAL TALK!!!

It's not too much work to ask someone what they use on their hair, why and then try it...really...just do it.
We ask people about movies, churches and men...ask for your hair!!
For Real!!
