Long African-American Hair Q & A

January 21, 2011  |  

How often should you wash your hair?
Washing African-American hair once a week will suffice. Because of the natural dryness of African-American hair, there’s no need to wash the hair more than that amount, as doing so would over-dry the hair. If the mission is to grow long African-American hair, then don’t over-dry.

What’s the best technique for straightening or blow-drying hair?
Since African-American hair can be susceptible to breakage, it is recommended that all lengths of African-American hair be conditioned underneath a dryer first, before blowing African-American hair. While the hair is blow-drying, a comb suitable for the African-American hair type is recommended.

Are weaves good or bad for African-American hair?
Weaves can be good for African-American hair and a sewn weave can protect African-American natural hair, which would be growing underneath.
