    My name is Lorna hope, and I base in USA…My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr okunad, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr okunade-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr okunad, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man… If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster to solve all your problems for you. Try High okunadelovespellcaster@gmail.com anytime, he might be the answer to your problems. Here’s his contact: okunadelovespellcaster@gmail.com

      Hi my name is Lachelle Hill, I just happened to come across the article while sitting at work. I have really tried to grow my hair and when it begins to grow I find it breaking again. I wear my hair in a ponytail a lot because I work out six times a week (resting on Sundays). I wash and condition my hair once a week. I wear it down curled (using a curling iron) usually on Sundays. I don’t wrap my hair at night, which I’m sure is part of the issue, but I am not sure. I am natural, no chemicals. The texture of my hair is soft not course. I also apply a holding gel to my hair each morning to help create my perfect ponytail. I am saying all this because I was to break any bad habit I may have, but first I need to know what it is, then I need to know what to do in place of those bad habits. If you have any comments I am all ears.

    I am natural but I started getting the 360 hair treatment because relaxers were to strong for my thin hair growing up. I started using a product called Shea Moisture for dry/damaged hair to shampoo and condition (every three weeks a deep condition) followed by an olive oil leave-in conditioner by African pride. I love the results. It’s an all natural product with no sulfates and no parabens (I know I probably spelled that wrong). Since I also have color in my hair I oil my scalp twice week with coconut oil to prevent it from drying out too much. And I only flat iron my hair once a week after I wash it. A simple wrap at night (or loose twists if wearing my natural hair) in a silk or satin hair wrap or nightcap. My hair has been growing noticeably since I started in it the correct attention and affection. When needed I get my hair trimmed by my trusted beautician.
    I Hope This Can Help someone :)

    I wear a weave during the winter. It actually helps to keep my head warm because I live in a cold climate. But I only do the weave for 6 mos, the other six I wear my hair natural. When I take the weave out my hair has always grown 2 to 4 inches. I don’t wear the weave to get long hair,because I I wear it because it’s easier to manage without using heat or chemicals on my own hair.

    I use the same stylist as Cathy Howse in Denver (Ed is AMAZING by the way)… she does NOT have a relaxer. She has not used any chemicals in her hair in over 9 years. Even mentions that on her site. That being said, her books and products do cover growing your hair and still using a relaxer.

  • CurlyBoo

    Natural here-I use no heat what so ever. I definitely don’t wash my hair every week-it will dry my hair out badly, about once a month is doing justice for me. I’ve recently noticed a growth in my hair in the last 3-4 months. Im not sure what im doing differently but I’ll continue with this hair regimen. But it’s always fun to hear about new ways to add growth.

    • AZgirl

      once an month?! That’s just poor hygiene ….

      • shero

        actually its not. I use to do once every two months and it grows the hair

        • empresstala

          no rudeness intended but how do u keep it from smelling? and what about build up? im natural and i co wash every 2-3 days or let water run down to remove sweat and stuff. i don’t need longer hair that bad if i have to walk around with my head smelling.i think most people who say black woman stank have been hanging around with black people that don’t wash their hair regularly.

          • shero

            I’m not offended so no rudeness taken; to answer your question, I only oiled my scalp. Didn’t moisturizer or do treatments deep or oil. So my scalp wouldn’t smell as you’d think it would. My scalp isn’t as sweaty as others …guess it is an individual thing. But I’ll agree with you that I do smell peoples scalp. Especially straight hair : permed on blacks and natural straight hair on Chinese, whites and the such.

    I use Domincan products. They work the best for me….wash every week, deep conditioner every week….roller set….wrap…..and go!! #noblowout……since I stop with the blow out I have less split ends…less trims…more growth.

    • shero

      what kind of deep conditioner do you use?

  • Moni

    I wear my hair in a ponytail all week, i only wear it out on weekends, and its relaxed…my hair grows

  • DarkChild

    Is anyone else annoyed by the video playing constantly and the ads at the bottom of the page. Ugh, very annoying.

    • Guest

      Install Adblock, I haven’t seen an add on the internet in years…

    • gracie

      Yeah I have the same problem here:-(

  • Des

    I’m glad the writer put emphasis on the fact that hair growth can be achieved regardless of whether one has a relaxer or not.

  • NONEYA

    I think Genetics play a huge factor in determining hair growth. I have never seen two women in the same family ( mom & dad) with two different hair lengths….I know families with all the women have very long hair and families with all women have bald edges!!

    • diggy p.

      I honestly think that has more to do with what they do to their hair as opposed to genetics. No one is meant to have bald edges. That’s too much perming and ponytailing. If a mom does it, she will do it to her daughters..thus, teaching them the same practices.

      • Des

        I definitely believe that genetics has to do with the thickness and rate of growth in one’s hair. And of course what is done to the hair determines is the thickness and growth is retained.
        Male baldness and graying early is usually genetic so why wouldn’t genetics be involved with hair characteristics in women.

  • Hello_Kitty81

    My grandma told me that if I put less product on my scalp my hair will grow faster and she’s right. Plus I believe exercise helps too because when I did the BC 7 years ago and when I exercise I would grow like an inch every 3 weeks.

  • DYNAMICALLYDELLA

    Wonder how many rebuttals this article will get with women who’ve been lead to believe that The Creator designed a large percentage of us with follicles that can grown no more than 5-10 inches of hair lol…never considering that there are large portions of us who’ve, for generations, been taught POOR hair care practices. Our diets have changed, hair trends, change, and expectations on what is managed or properly styled have changed drastically; to the detriment of many young women’s manes.

  • Ki

    Hmm I never had a problem with growing my hair it’s past my back bra strap. But my tips: limit the flat irons and curlin irons, wash your hair every week, find a good leave in conditioner and plat it before you go to bed, oh and limit ponytails (very damaging)

    • Courtney

      if you limit ponytails then what other protective styles are there besides a feaux bob, braids and a bun?

      • jas

        Try, twist out, braid outs. or you can you bobby pins or hairpins to style and protect your hair.

    • shero

      what kinda leave in conditioer do you use?
