MYTH: Black/Afro Hair will not grow long


Note first of all that hair grows from the roots not the ends. Where the problem really lies is at the ends where breakage can occur.
How many times have you heard black women say "My hair just doesn't grow!" or have you even said this yourself.


You can do many things to combat breakage but the one that people always commonly make the mistake of doing is not protecting their ends.

  • Hair breakage on the collar of your shirt, prevents hair growing past shoulder length.
  • Wear protective styles
  • Hair breakage on your pillow - wear a silk /satin scarf at night - cover your hair every night
  • Moisturise and Seal the ends of your hair daily with a leave in and a carrier oil
  • Deep condition your hair weekly and don't forget to use a reconstructive conditioner like Joico K-Pac Deep Penetrating Reconstructor or a hair masque like PhytoSpecific Vital Force Creme Bath at least once a month.
  • Balance betweenMoisture and Protein is Key!


STOP HAIR BREAKAGE IF YOU WANT YOUR HAIR TO GROW
