HOW TO GROW THICK AND LONG NATURAL HAIR!

Read on to get the tea on how to REALLY grow your hair. 


As long as you’re taking great care of your hair, then she will take great care of you. Never stop taking care of your hair, even when you achieve the length that you’re trying to get to. Be consistent with these steps below to get new growth!


PROTECTIVE STYLES

There are many protective styles to do but if you want to see true hair growth, I recommend wearing braids or twists. Wearing your hair in protective styles will retain your length and lessen the manipulation.


If you don’t want to walk around like Queen Latifah in Set It Off all day, then wearing wigs can be truly beneficial. If you're going to go the wig route, I suggest oiling your scalp twice a day to see maximum growth. 


CASTOR OIL

Speaking of oiling your scalp, castor oil can really work wonders! Now if you've been living under a rock, then I suggest you research all the benefits of the oil.


Not only does castor oil enhance hair follicles, but it also protects against hair loss. I recommend  https://amzn.to/3aGG8vZ for anyone looking for the best Jamaican Black Castor Oil on the market.


RICE WATER TREATMENT

Rice water is rich in vitamin B (Biotin) and vitamin C (Antioxidant) which strengthens and grows the hair. This treatment instantly adds shine, removes dandruff, and makes your hair look healthier.


Add the rice water treatment after you've shampooed and conditioned your hair. Then pour the rice water mainly onto the scalp and work your way to the ends. Leave the treatment on your hair for about 5 minutes, then rinse.


HOW TO MAKE RICE WATER

1. Take ½ cup of uncooked rice.

2. Rinse thoroughly.

3. Place rice in a bowl with 2–3 cups of water.

4. Leave to soak for 30 minutes.

5. Strain the rice water into a clean bowl.

6. Save the rest of the liquid into a container and label it.



REGULARLY WASH & SHAMPOO

It’s important to use sulfate-free products. Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil https://amzn.to/3aHK8wg is the best shampoo & conditioner for growing and strengthening, plus this one includes a leave-in conditioner. 


A simple wash day looks like - - - Shampoo, Condition, Rice Water Treatment, Deep Conditioner, Leave-In Conditioner.


DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENT

Deep condition equals healthy hair. This will help keep your hair soft, strong, nourished, and minimize breakage, aiding in growth and length retention. I recommend deep conditioning your hair every other wash day.

REGULARLY TRIM HAIR

If you never or rarely cut your ends, they won’t ever grow. I used to hate when my mom “trimmed” my hair. Just seeing the scissors was enough for me.


But now I understand that she was just trimming away the damaged, broken, and split ends. As long as you're taking good care of your hair, you’ll only have to trim it about every 3-4 months. 


STAY AWAY FROM THE HEAT

Stay away from heating tools as much as possible. If you must put heat on your hair then I recommend you to not exceed 365°F and invest in a good heat protectant like https://amzn.to/3l2v9Sg. This one creates a nourishing protective barrier between your hair and any irons. 


This is where wigs come in handy. Any style that you’re wanting your natural hair to be in, a wig can be customized to fit your needs while your hair is growing.
