My Top 7 Secret Weapons For Hair Growth

black woman with curly hairHair growth was my top concern when I started out my natural hair journey in 2008. I always had hair that was pretty healthy, since I couldn’t afford to damage it with expensive hair styles, dyes and other products. But this doesn’t mean that I sidestepped all damage-- I still received relaxers a couple of times a year and that did a number on my strands.

My hair grows pretty quickly, so I had to get relaxers done every two to three months and when I did do it, I had my entire head done each time. I didn’t know better at the time -- I was a teen. And since I was 9, that’s how the adults relaxed my hair.

I eventually wanted the hair I used to have -- the soft, tight curls that poofed around my head. I didn’t want the sleek look 24-7. I wanted options and I wanted healthy shiny hair without having to rely on chemical products. So I started my journey to natural hair and along the way, I learned great insight into what it took to grow my type of hair successfully.
