You might not appreciate being compared to a plant, but let me tell you why it is the most beautiful and accurate comparison. Natural hair is a lot like a plant, the more you water it the better it will grow. Not to mention our hair journeys typically start out a lot like a seed- small but bursting with potential.
Also just like a plant needs sun and nutrients, our hair needs satin scarves and oils.
So, allow me to share with you, these 5 Top Tips to growing Long, Thick and Healthy Natural Hair.
1. Use No Heat –
I know shrinkage can be an enemy of progress but blowing drying your hair every time you wash it leaves it more prone to heat damage.
Besides, there are plenty of ways you can stretch your hair without using heat, check out for methods clicking here!
2. Keep your Hair Moisturized –
Natural hair is naturally dry, so it is important to constantly add moisture to your hair, especially the ends as these are the oldest parts of your hair. Develop a regimen that may consist of moisturizing your hair every night or day. If you are not sure how well your hair retains moisture, give the Porosity Test a try.
3. Deep Condition –
It is crucial to deep condition your hair every time you wash it.
Deep conditioning makes your hair more soft and manageable after you wash, whilst also imparting moisture. If you don’t know what deep conditioner you should use, click here for some advice!
4. Drink Water –
Nobody really likes being told what they should and shouldn’t eat, however, your diet is important when it comes to hair growth. Do aim to drink about 2 liters of water a day, but if water is not your thing try throwing in a lemon!
5. Protective Styles –
During these colder months, I very rarely leave my natural hair out, this is because of the damage the drying winds could potentially do to my hair.
Instead, I braid my hair down!
