How to Grow African American Hair, Naturally



How to grow African American hair is a common inquiry since your beautiful locks have special needs. It has a tendency to dry out on the ends and become brittle as a result.

Unlike straight hair, black hair needs more attention since oil from the scalp is not easily distributed to its strands, hence the problem of slow growth also comes into the picture.

There are many ways to make black hair grow and the good news is that everything that you need is just within reach. There's not quick fix, but when done right, the steps given can increase your chances of seeing your beautiful tresses grow into a full healthy head of hair.

First step is to go all-natural on hair care products. The last thing that African American hair needs is to treat it with harsh chemicals or artificial elements.

When buying products for your hair, look for ingredients like aloe vera, sage, rosemary, jojoba and citrus fruits.

These are proven to help revitalize hair so go for it. But make sure that you buy the essentials oils derived from these ingredients and not the extracts or fragrance oil formulation. Essential oils may be more expensive but they give the desired result, that is, well-nourished hair.

Be wary of hair products that says "all natural" but just the same contain ingredients such as petroleum, phosphates and mineral oil. You may consult with a dermatologist and have a special hair care product formulated for you. Your doctor can also recommend the best products suited for your hair type.

Second stepis to shun harsh hair treatments. Less is best when it comes to treatment for African American hair.

Hair color for instance must be done only occasionally as it can make your hair brittle and dry because of the chemicals used for the procedure. When your hair is brittle, growth becomes even more difficult.

Third step is to keep your body hydrated. Scalp is skin and to nourish your skin means keeping it hydrated. A healthy scalp can distribute oil to the ends of the hair and in the process aids hair growth. This is one of the easiest steps on how to grow African American hair.

Since water flushes out toxins from the body, you hair benefits from it too. When your body is less acidic and more alkaline, it heals itself and utilizes nutrients optimally. As a result, your hair is nourished, gets healthier and grows faster.

Fourth step is to make changes in what you eat. There are foods that are good for the hair particularly those that are rich in protein, vitamin C, vitamin B12, lignans and iron which make your hair stronger and healthier. Include these in your diet to help your hair achieve its maximum growth potential.

Just remember to eat in moderation to give your body proper time to process all the nutrients.
