I trim my natural hair every 6 months, and I moisturize every time I wash my hair. How can I get my hair to grow?
It sounds like you may have very curly or tight coily hair. Your hair may tend to grow slower than average and is very dry. Highly textured hair might also shed and break off easily as it needs a great amount of moisture and lubrication. Moisturizing your hair on a daily basis with botanical and essential oil blends like, Lisa’s Hair Elixir Oil will help to keep your hair moisturized. Brushing the hair every night with a boar bristle brush and massaging the scalp with a light oil will also contribute to the growth of your hair by creating more blood circulation that actually feeds the hair and increases hair growth. Never sleep on cotton pillow cases and protect the hair against friction and breakage by sleeping with a silk or satin bonnet or scarf.
Protective styles are a great way to grow-out short very curly hair or coily hair to longer tresses. Try cornrows every six week or individual braided styles every 6 to 8 weeks for a 6 month period. This regimen will protect your hair from any breakage as you grow it out longer and you will notice more hair growth. Each time you re-braid your hair, apply a deep hydrating condition treatment like, Carol’s Daughter Black Vanilla Shampoo and Smoothie. Make sure to detangle your hair with the Black Vanilla Leave-in-Condition Spray on your hair after you remove extensions and before you wet the hair and then, shampoo and condition with the Black Vanilla Collection on a regular basis.
