Cathy's black hair care tips are created from questions received in emails on the website. Because we have never been given this type of information before, many questions are generated as a result of it from proper black hair care to the correct black hair care products we should use. When I began researching hair care in 1985 "adequate, accurate information" was 1 of 3 things I found were missing in caring for our hair. Now many books, some good, some bad give us our information, as well as numerous websites. When you learn the truth and employ common sense techniques to your hair care routines, you will be able to immediately pick out the foolishness. Since previous questions have come in with so many on the same subjects, I tried to catagorize as many as possible.

Note: Due to the overwhelming number of request and the wide range of questions that are sent to me it is no longer possible to answer every email. Only emails that are sent to me regarding my products will still be handled. Sorry but I no longer am able to answer questions about other products, styles, etc. Finally, Please keep in mind emails answers are a courtesy not a requirement of this website.
