Have you ever felt like everyone’s hair seems to grow whilst yours seems to be the same length irregardless of how much you try?
Despite protective styling, conditioning, moisturizing, steaming, oiling, plaiting etc, it still feels like your hair hasn’t grown an inch in ages!
The thing is, millions of women feel exactly the same!
To help you, the first question I’m going to as isn’t ‘how long is your hair?’ or ‘how much time do you spend styling it?’
Are you alive?
If you’re reading this, your heart is pulsing- right? You are breathing- right? Well then, that definitely means you’re alive. Great!
So, if you’re alive and have no underlying health problems then your hair is definitely growing!
That’s a fact.
There’s a big difference between your hair not growing and your hair not being longer or fuller. Click to Tweet!
If your hair is no longer than it was six moths ago that means that you’re not retaining or keeping your new and old hair.
New hair is the hair that grows from your scalp; for instance when a woman who dyes her hair says her ‘roots’ are showing, the roots are new hair.
Whilst new hair grows, the hair that’s already on your head needs to be kept in good condition so that you can have longer hair. Basically, there needs to be a balance between the new hair growing and the current hair staying.
When you achieve this balance then you’ll experience growth. Simple!
For those who are struggling to keep their existing hair from breaking there are two key things you should consider:
Conditioning more frequently and properly!
If you’ve been telling yourself that conditioning is for women with a certain hair texture then you’re very much mislead.
Women with any and every texture that exists, need to condition their hair.
But it’s no use using just any product on your hair. Pick your conditioner carefully. Read the ingredients, look for high quality ingredients like coconut, lavendar oil, Vitamin E and honey.
Look at how much of the good ingredients is in the product you’re considering. For example, in our Coco Curly Conditioner Coconut oil is one of the primary ingredients (we loooove coconut oil!).
Test out different conditioners to see which one works for you and once you find that gem, use it regularly.
Of course, some women have greasier hair and may therefore chose to condition less-which is fine.
Your hair is made from protein which means that regular protein treatments will actually help to strengthen your hair.
Many women with breaking/ damaged hair notice an immediate difference with just one protein treatment simply because protein really helps to add strength and stop damage.
There’s no need for a salon trip, simply use normal eggs or mayonaise to give your hair a protein boost!
They say patience is a virtue for a reason! It’s so easy to want immediate results whenever we have a goal or desire but the truth is that hair growth takes time!
Contrary to what some people might have you believe, truly healthy hair doesn’t just happen in a day!
Your body needs time to work it’s magic and produce the healthy hair you deserve.
In fact, your body is constantly working and operating and will in time produce the results you desire in terms of your hair growth goals.
Be patient and you’ll reap the rewards.
