I was once again searching through the key words and phrases looking for how black women are finding my site and one of the key phrases that struck my attention was “why won’t my hair grow?”. This really touched me to find that there are women out there that actually think their hair won’t grow, but they desire long hair.
The truth is your hair is growing. It’s growing every day and in fact it grows just as fast as Caucasian, Latina, and Asian women (1/2 inch a month). The only problem is either you’ve stunted your hair growth by using hair grease and other products on your scalp or you aren’t preventing your hair from breaking. Please remember that clipping your ends every 6-8 weeks is not going to make your hair grow faster or prevent and stop breakage.
Conditioning your hair with a good protein, oil, and scalp stimulant conditioner every 3 days to a week is key. Also remember to moisturize your hair with a water based moisturizer free from mineral oil and petroleum and also protein. Do not apply anything to your scalp, and avoid using a blow dryer which will do nothing, but cause severe damage to your hair.
Good luck on growing your hair long and always remember:
Your hair does grow! It’s what your are doing or not doing to it that’s preventing it from gaining length.
