5000470656. You are constantly upside down– The inversion method works, we agree but doing it all the time is not recommended, just relax and sit right side up do not obsess over methods that trick your body into doing something that comes naturally.

Stop! Enjoy the journey

Now that we know the signs lets work on enjoying the journey. For most of us, this natural hair thing is very new, so we need to just chill, and experience the journey our hair is taking us on learning to love our hair at every stage – from TWA to hair down our butts (one day). Make friends with other naturals and enjoy the journey together.

We also cannot stress the need to properly care for your hair and scalp. Cleanse your hair and scalp regularly to have a healthy scalp so that your hair can grow and be fabulous. The scalp is foundation of long luscious hair, keep it clean and try scalp treatments that nourish the scalp. Exercise good hair management practices to reduce breakage and keep you hair strong and healthy.

Detangle your hair with care and deep condition your hair every time you wash. Your hair needs moisture and lubrication to prevent static which cause breakage. Limit your styling sessions by wearing protective styles. Try wearing protective styles for 5 days and then free your hair for 2 days. That’s all you need.

For those who are transitioning to natural hair, enjoy it! Play with your two textures. Watch videos and check out transitioning articles here on BHI. Don’t get frustrated. It is not a struggle, even though it might seem as if it is.

Do not fight the hair to do something it simply does not want to do. Educate yourself on how to take care of your hair and minimize breakage, especially where the two textures meet. The hair will grow you just need to be patient and big chop when you are ready. Let it be your experience and your journey. Love every day of it girl!

    All naturals are bloody obsessed with hair growth! Trying to find that magical pill to have their hair sprout out of the top of their head!!
    I think women who are obsessed need to be realistic with the growth and realise that to gain the full HALF AN INCH they need to look at their DIET and GENETICS!
    No oil. No pill. No spray. No nothing can and will gain you over half an inch of HEALTHY hair!
    Christ.
