Check out this interview:
We've learned that you were diagnosed with CCCA Alopecia .... What was this experience like for you?
Since the age of 16, I noticed that I had some scalp issues because after I would put the ‘creamy crack’ in my hair, my crown was thinking and my scalp was irritated. I then stopped the relaxers at the age of 22 and I thought my hair would grow back and all would be well, but when it didn’t and I started to get Itching and Burning at the crown, I knew then that my situation was serious. So when I finally found out a name for my condition, I was more so relieved because I had a foundation to stand on in order to find a cure.
How is this specific type of Alopecia different from others?
With CCCA Alopecia it defers from other types of Alopecia because along with having horrible itching and burning symptoms of the scalp, eventually if left untreated, it can cause scarring on the scalp witch causes hair to permanently not grow in the affected area.
Do you find that many Black Women have this scalp condition? Why? What may be our biggest mistake when trying to grow our hair?
Yes, many Black women have this serious hair/body debilitating disease. I believe that there are many factors as to why, but the main reasons includes some sort of autoimmune disease, and bad hair practices. With that said, our biggest mistake when trying to grow our hair is what we put into our bodies as well as poor hair health education. I stress to my clients to get tested and see if the have any autoimmune disease and to be careful not to eat high inflammatory foods.
You developed your own organic remedy ...1) How did you formulate this mix of ingredients? Why choose organic?
Like others I have searched long and hard to find a solution to my symptoms and to grow my hair back. With failed products used from beauty supply and drug stores, I decided to put my situation in my own hands. I began to research holistic medicine. One night I had a dream of the formula for Organic Hair Growth Oil, and the business and client results boomed from there. Why organic? Because Organic Essential oils and food are the original human medicine.
Where do you source your ingredients?
The ingredients for Sydney Nicole Products LLC are sorced from all over the would. From Africa, France, to Spain and the United States.
How soon can someone with chronic hair loss start seeing results after using your products?
My condition was chronic for 8 years and I completely rid my symptoms in 8 months. Although many other clients have had immediate results, some 2 weeks, and some 2 months.
As a Black woman, how does your hair play a significant role in your life?
Honestly I never could relate to Indiana Aire song “I am not my hair” Since a little girl, I have loved hair, it meant everything to me, and now as a Queen, my Curls are my Crown.
