A Basic Length Retention Regimen For High Shrinkage 4b 4c Hair

length retention regimen natural hair

“The fact of the matter is princess; there is no secret to long hair!” - Unknown

I can’t tell you how many times daily we get that question on Face book, twitter and other forms of social media, seriously we wish there was a secret to share, but alas, there isn't.

Obviously length retention is a big deal, the good news is, if you are a healthy girl your hair is already growing so the problem is not what is happening on your scalp but rather what you are doing to preserve that length you are gaining daily.

The key to long hair is technique and consistency, there is no secret, no product, no pill, and no oil which is good news in our book, can you imagine if there was a magic pill somewhere and the chaos it would cause?

The whole point of Black Hair Information is to teach you skills on how to best retain the length. We have a variety of topics that cover all aspects of hair care because what works for one person might not work for you. Visit our regimens category to help you come up with a regimen to suit your needs and of course your hair goals.

Your hair is beautiful.

It says no secret pills, but aren’t vitamins a great way to help your hair grow faster, with proper hair care of course?

Hair growth has never been our problem though, it’s length retention. I grew mine without any pills and only 4 inches a year. Just tons of protective styling.

i was recently so inspired by all these pics yall post, i went through the fire to wear my hair down a couple days instead of braiding it back up like i usually do. the first day with the streached twists taken down was ok, but by the end of the night, i had a nappy fro all over again bc of the humidity. more power to all the ladies patient enough to deal with 4c hair on a regular basis. my daughter and i will stick to braid styles year round and admiring all your hard work in these photos

I love your hair and the style. I am new to be natural and trying to take better care for by 7yr olds natural hair. Do you wash inbetween weeks? Do you moisturize your hair daily?

Idk I agree on the retention part but as far as growth I do take ManeChoice vitamins. Grew 2 inches in a month soooo yea

Pheadra Pic

Where do you get those vitamins?

Brishaun Thompson

That was a lotttt of work I’m scared now I just did the chop a month back but I have to be in the mood for when it’s time for all that!!

Hannah Okorafor

Your hair may be different though. But, yeah her regiment seemed really long!

April Burch Sookra

Too much work, just for hair.

Shaniqua Franklin

That’s a lot of maintenance. I can see why she went for a low maintenance/half done style. That takes ‘wash day’ to another level! I’m tired just watching lol.

Janet Henry

I never brush my hair and comb perhaps once in a couple of months. …I have 4C hair. It’s not a chore use to it now so doesn’t take long at all. I’ve retained alot of length

Chandradaughterof Janettegranddaughter Ofjames

Just take care of your hair and it will grow.
