By  | 


African-American hair is exposed to harsh chemicals and extreme heat to make it longer and smoother. This makes your hair brittle and could prevent it from growing! There are simple ways to grow your hair quicker and longer without ruining it in the process.

A big part of African-Americans know what products to use to grow hair faster. Before you try complicated methods to grow your hair quickly, give simple maintenance a shot. The simple things you do every day can guide you on how to grow African American hair faster.

Eliminate toxic and chemical products

African-American hair is brittle and damages easily. Most shampoos available are brutal because of harsh ingredients. You want to avoid the harshness at any cost! Be cautious about which shampoo you use. Stick to sulfate-free shampoos, since sulfates can dry out your hair making it frizzy.

Look out for organic oil shampoos that are great at protecting your hair from dryness, and leave your strands supple and soft.  Shampoos having organic oil as a major ingredient will nourish your hair giving it more shine.

Pre-shampoo treatment before washing

Pre-shampoo is a type of hair conditioning forming a protective layer against the harsh ingredients of the shampoo. This would stop your hair from getting frizzy and eventually breaking. It’s followed by a regular shampoo to make your hair soft and smooth. You can make own pre-shampoo at home using a protein content conditioner and organic oil.

Deep conditioning once every week

A regular conditioner is lighter and designed for use after every hair wash. A deep conditioner is heavier and sticks to your scalp and hair. It sinks deep into the hair and nourishes it from the roots. Experts suggest that you deep condition your hair once every week.

Natural hair growth enhancers 

The best thing you can do to your hair is keep it moisturized. Adequate moisture promotes hair growth and protects it from split ends and breakages. Drink enough water to keep yourself hydrated and your hair moisturized.

Your hair has natural oils, but it’s recommended that you use a good hair oil to speed up its growth. Massage deeply to ensure that the oil gets deep inside the hair follicles.

Trim your hair once every 3-4 months; it’s the best way to get rid of split ends and prevent hair damage. Wearing buns and loose braids can keep your hair from getting exposed to the elements. Certain hairstyles encourage a healthy hair growth. Wrapping your hair in a silk scarf or sleeping on a satin pillow can also help a great deal.

There are times when you get generous brushing your hair. Don’t wash your hair too often. Washing frequently will strip your hair off its natural oils, making it dry and vulnerable to damage.

Go organic with your hair!

If you’re thinking how to grow African-American hair faster, you should avoid certain hair treatments.

Any treatment that uses heat to style your hair is bad for you. Things like blow dryers and flat irons literally cook your hair and make it extremely weak and fragile. Remember that your hair can still look good without having to iron it.

Make sure the hair products you buy don’t contain harsh chemicals. You get natural and organic hair products that might be expensive, but provide a better alternative to chemical products. These chemical products make your hair look and feel good, but over time it will destroy your hair. Be careful while using hair dyes, chemical relaxers, sulfates, and products containing alcohol. The extra investment you make on natural and organic products is worth every penny.

Styles that rely on tightly wrapping your hair are noxious. Hair tends to get weaker and breaks easily when stretched or tightly wrapped. This can also hampers the natural growth of your hair.
