Whether you’re newly natural or have been natural since birth, one thing that can be especially difficult for all naturals is not only growing, but maintaining hair length. If you’ve been trying to grow out your natural hair, and obtain beautiful, hydrated curls, kinks and coils, keep reading for 5 tips to grow your hair.
Drinking water, avoiding drying agents like drinking alcohol and coffee and getting water from eating fruits and vegetables can all aid in hydration. When you are hydrated internally it can help to keep the skin, scalp and hair moisturized from the inside out. When the scalp is well nourished it allows for hair to grow out in a healthy state. When you drink plenty of water, hair is kept nourished which helps to prevent breakage.
2. Castor Oil
Castor oil and Jamaican black castor oil can both aid in growing hair and retaining hair length. Castor oil is a natural emollient and humectant for hair. This thick oil can help to prevent breakage as well as promote hair growth while massaging in the scalp which also helps promote hair growth as well as applying to the length of the hair. Due to the thickness of the oil, a little bit goes a long way so need to pack on the oil.
3. Low manipulation styles
The more you manipulate your hair, the more likely you are to cause breakage or damage to your hair which will make your hair appear as if it is not growing. Low manipulation and protective styles help to avoid breakage and keep your hair length in tact.
4. Avoid drying ingredients
It’s important to avoid products with drying ingredients like sulfates and parabens to maintain hair length. Sulfates are detergents that can greatly strip hair of its natural oils. Instead, use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners.
