3 weeks ago, 14:27
So you’ve tried all oils, from coconut to almond to the extent of ordering shea butter from Uganda but nothing is happening? You have followed all natural hair bloggers and vloggers but still, your niece’s hair is longer? Hang on sis! We have all been there in the struggle trying to get that hair growth with no success. Some of us have even gone as far as ordering hair vitamins from Amazon. It is okay. But have you ever thought the problem could be in the simple things that you religiously do daily? Most of the times we unconsciously damage our hair by ourselves and end up blaming the salons.
Why are you creating a breeding place for lice sis? Dirty hair is the number one enemy to hair growth. The accumulation of oil and dirt may suffocate your scalp and cause stunted growth. It is advisable to deep clean your hair at least once a week. Or else you’ll have your hair smelling terrible!
Try as much as possible to avoid hairstyles that are too tight. Do you know that you actually have the option of telling your hairdresser not to make it too tight? These hairstyles might just cause permanent hair loss which is definitely what we are going for. Instead, opt for hairstyles that are not too tight.
The temptation to use heat on your hair is real especially when the nappy hair is having moods. Resist it boo! Heat damages your hair and makes your strands weak and fragile. If you need to stretch your hair you can use other methods like the African thread method.
Leave the weaves and the extensions away for some time. Yes, they look good and give you options but you also have to think of your hair. It has to have time to breathe. You can’t have a weave for 6 months, dear. It will be unhygienic and your hair will be fighting for its life underneath!
You need to cut your split ends after every 6-8 weeks to avoid tangling which ends up breaking your hair. I know it sounds like the exact opposite of growing your hair but trust me, you’d rather have healthy hair than one full of split ends.
So, are we growing our hair or nah? Let us know some of the bad practices you’ve observed
