How to Grow Black Hair Naturally


The topic of black hair growth have always been an avenue for debate. Many naysayers believe ethnic or black hair textures have difficulty maintaining positive growth. The notion is far from accurate.

The rise in natural hair growth among black women and men have debunked such a theory. Hair growth is a natural process which requires a great diet and good hair care products and maintenance.

The most important thing you will need is a strict beauty plan. Today, I will share some important tips that will give you a head start in maintaining healthy hair growth. Now let's take a look at how to grow your hair naturally.

Treat Your Hair

The first thing you will need is a great shampoo. Black hair needs nutrients for it to maintain healthy growth. Try a shampoo that is loaded with healthy hair vitamins and oils such as Almond oil, Olive oil, vitamins B5, B3 and Biotin. Stay away from sulfate shampoos and products. Sulfates only destroys black hair by stripping it of its nutrients causing it to become dry and damage. You don't want this happening to you so avoid it at all cost.

The next step is to invest in a good deep conditioner and leave in conditioner as well. This process will help you lock in moisture and prevent split ends and dryness: make sure your parting your hair into sections when applying leave in conditioners or products: If you don't have a dryer you can sit under, try a shower cap to lock in the leave in product in your hair overnight.

Many relaxers are known to cause hair breakage and hair loss. Flat irons also greatly contribute to split ends and dryness. Don't punish your hair with these products. Try investing in natural hairstyles such as Bantu knots, crochet's, box braids, a Fro, twists or wigs.

Remember, to use a deep conditioner as well at least once a week


Change Your Diet.

Many people find it difficult to eat healthy but it's very important to do so. Your hair is also affected by what you eat. There are some great foods that can aid you in growing your hair naturally. Beets, Almonds, Greek yogurt, raspberries, blueberries, pineapples and green leafy vegetables are high in nutrients that are needed for healthy hair growth. Try including these foods into your daily diet by making a raw smoothie to get the maximum amount of nutrients from these awesome fruits, nuts and vegetables. Let YouTube be your guide. There a number of smoothie videos for hair growth on the website:

Protein is another important nutrient needed for hair growth. Eating foods such as salmon, avocado, tuna and cod fish will aid you immensely in your journey to longer hair: also try taking liquid biotin or a vitamin E supplement . Remember, a healthy diet will definitely deliver faster and better results in reaching your hair growth goals. Challenge yourself. You will be happy with the results.
