Okay, this is something that was shared with me a couple of years ago and it is why I use mainly Aphogee and dominican products even today.
I tried the ayurvedics at one point and even though they strengthened my hair it didn't feel or look the same.  So I went back to my tried and true Aphie and dominican. 
 
I've seen threads on the subject elsewhere and decided to bring it here
for discussion.  
 
Ceramides are beneficial to the hair because they help to fill in gaps within the hair cuticle.  Hydrolyzed keratin proteins and silk proteins penetrate the hair strand and repair from within.  We all know the benefits of moisture for the hair.
 
These ceramides seem to be even more beneficial to no-lye users as are chelating shampoos.  The shampoos remove calcium/mineral deposits and the ceramides fill in the gaps/bind the cuticles (outside of the hair strand).
 
Several dominican products (Miss Keys 10 en 1, Silicon Mix, etc) contain ceramides as do popular hair care lines such as Matrix, Redken, Garnier, Mizani, Nexxus, Joico and Loreal.  And yes, generic versions by Suave and Sally's GVP contain it too if the generic version mimics the ingredients.
 
I realize that each person's hair is different but I find that these products do give great results for me.  I am a lite tex-laxer with no-lye and I use products from all the above lines except Nexxus.  No particular reason as I have used them in the past its just I get what I need already from the other products I use.  And Nexxus is the line that actually has ceramides in pretty much every one of its products.
 
So what say you?  Whether your lye, no-lye or natural do you find that products that contain ceramides work well with your hair along with hydrolyzed keratin/silk proteins and moisture?

I'm a die hard Silicon Mix-er. I didn't know anything about cerimides but that conditioner is the best one so far for my hair. Unless something better comes along, I'm sticking with it.

I do put EVOO or JBCO on my hair before I do the Silicon Mix....you can hear the angels when I wash it out! LOL

LOL @ you can hear the angels when I wash it out!
 
I add EVOO to all my deep conditioners.  Your right about Silicon Mix - I love it!  And the leave is very good!  Its one of my top 3!
 
Sometimes its more to these products be it shampoo, conditioner or leave in that we may have not known about before that favors our particular hair.  I'm just throwing something out there that works for me and that coincides with my other hair care knowledge. Smile

This study explains the benefits to ceramides on AA hair.
 
 

ABSTRACT

Repetitive hair-relaxing treatments often applied to African–American hair weaken the hair structure. Therefore hair breakage is a common feature of African–American hair and an important cause of hair loss. Recently, by analysing the lipids extracted from human hair, a fraction of free-ceramide was isolated in which sphinganine was predominant. This study shows that this sphinganine-derived ceramide (i.e. C18-dhCer) binds to African–American hair and protects it from weakening caused by chemicals. To show this binding, we used two methods: radioactivity detection with a microimagerTM and secondary ion mass spectrometry.

We evaluated the benefits of C18-dhCer on African–American hair fibre, relaxed by guanidine hydroxide, using a new method called the Break'in Brush Technique (BBT®). This method determines the hair breakage resistance during a brushing. Using this technique, we have shown less breakage when applying a shampoo with ceramide.

The present study opens new prospects for the development of products able to increase the protection, provide better care and meet the needs of African–American hair thanks to the effect of ceramide binding.

Thanks Pattigurlatl!!  
 
I have seen these same studies.  I'm hoping to prove it by finding what ladies on BHM are using.  They may not even realize why certain products work so well for them. Smile

Thanks for starting this thread Lady CC Thumbs%20Up

Does anyone know how beneficial ceramides are to natural hair?
 
About a month ago I purchased:
 
Vanart Expert Bio Ceramids Conditioner to cowash my lose fro.
 
I also had a field day with my last product haul.. and  purchased:
 
2 bottles of Softsheen carson breakthru anti breakage patented ceramide technology heat style protecting foam
2 bottles of Softsheen carson breakthru anti breakage patented ceramide technology Fortifying moisturing shampoo
 
I read on LHCF that it is a good idea to clarify if using products with ceramides

Your welcome! Smile
 
The benefits are exactly what I'm hoping to find out and/or prove. 
 
I would think it would benefit all hair, natural or not, just based on what it does.  Clarifying or clarifying/chelatting for no-lye users removes any buildup from the hair strands so that the ceramides can fill in or rather rebuild the strand - if that makes sense.
 
Oh, and I forgot about those Softsheen Carson Breakthru products.  I couldn't remember every product so thanks for sharing.  I'll add it to the list. Thumbs%20Up  Too bad that great sulfate free shampoo was discontinued. Cry
