OXX STANDARDS | F.A.Q'S
Frequently asked questions
1. What are the OXX Products?
2. Who can use the OXX Products?
Everyone…Woman, Man, Child regardless of Race or hair texture/type
3. What makes OXX so special and different?
4. How soon do you notice a difference in your hair and how long will it last?
There is an immediate difference with moisture and softness. African/Black people type hair, especially if relaxed and persons with more dry/ damaged hair will have to maintain with the OXX maintenance products in between shampoos. OXX System, in its entirety (products and unfamiliar hair care practices), is a lifestyle change and with constant usage will encourage a continous head of beautfiful hair!
5. How does OXX System and the OXX Team deal with hair loss issues?
First of all , there are two types of hair loss: actual excess hair loss from the scalp and “breakage” where the hair breaks anywhere on the strand. Excess hair loss is typically alopecia and there are many types of alopecia. They are androgenetic (genetic), traction (tight styles), and stress alopecia to name a few. We usually recommend persons go to a Dermatologist to know exactly what type they have but we have realized that many Black Women will have traction alopecia due to tight hair styles and brushing. So the OXX Team will recommend the OXX methodologies which encourages changes in the way persons handle and care for their hair, along with using the OXX products.
6.How can OXX help with hair breakage?
The OXX Team will recommend the OXX methodologies which encourages changes in the way persons handle and care for their hair, along with using the OXX products.
7. Why no brushing?
We absolutely do NOT recommend African/Black textured hair persons (especilly if Relaxed or coloured) to brush their hair. Look on the picture below. You will notice that African hair is very fragile and delicate due to the high porosity. Why would anyone want to brush strands that will only break (just look on the floor and in the sink in your bathroom)? So NO MORE Brushing!
8. Why OXX promotes minimum combing and more hand/fingers manipulation?
The reason is the same as question 7. We love to ask a question…”Would you cut off your nose to spite your face?” I do not think so. So why would you do things that promote your hair strands breaking ? Makes no sense right? We have proven that when persons use our OXX products and abide by our unfamiliar hair care practices, they have excellent retention results. Retention of moisture and retention of the hair strands.
9. Does OXX guarantee 100% satisfaction?
Yes!!! Use the OXX products with the OXX practices (such as no brushing etc.) and you will be guaranteed a fabulous head of hair.
10. Are OXX Products a once in a while treatment?
Not at all! We are a lifestyle change. Continuous and proper usage of the products along with our unfamiliar hair care practices is the only way to experience the benefits.
11. Is OXX a protein treatment?
No but the Booster Treatment mimics a protein treatment. Be aware that a Protein treatment can cause dryness which is why our Booster Treatment is only left in the hair for 3 minutes and then followed with our OXX Conditioner
12. Is OXX a moisturizing treatment?
The OXX products offer excellent moisture retention for the hair. We guarantee a moisturizing look and feel when products are not combined with other brands.
13. Should we Oil our scalp?
Unless you are putting the OXX Maintenance Oil on your scalp for stimulation (natural hair may use the OXX Maintenance Oil by itself while relaxed hair should combine the OXX Maintenance Oil with OXX Hair butter before applying) you should definitely NOT oil your scalp. Your scalp secretes natural Oils from the pores everyday.
14. Should OXX products be used with other brands?
15. Does Colour (such as Rinse, Semi-permanent. Demi-Permanent, Permanent) and Relaxer/Crème work well together and what does the OXX Team recommend to help the breakage and dryness these combinations cause?
16. Why doesn’t OXX have a sulfate-free shampoo?
17. Does OXX have issues with Wigs?
We definitely prefer wigs but with caution. NO to lace front wigs as these wreak havoc on the hairline. Also, please take heed of the fact that the base of wigs are typically mesh or some other type of material that cause dryness and because of the materials used, Afro-textured hair will get caught in the grooves and get pulled. For this reason, if you have to wear a wig, please do some LOOSE corn-rows or a couple twists that are not tight underneath. Go to our Tips and Advice page and see how bad mesh type materials are.
