Promoting Long African-American Hair Growth: Tip of the Day

January 26, 2011  |  

You’ve asked, and we’re here to answer your questions about African-American hair growth, and tips to make it grow full and long.

Each day, we present a useful long hair tip that we hope will help stimulate growth of African-American hair, as so many hair care products designed for African-American hair, and so many bits of advice surrounding African-American hair, begin to flood the African-American hair marketplace. Last week, we discussed weaves (threaded versus glued) as possible growth promoters (or not) of African-American hair.

This week, our tip involves greasing African-American hair, and ensuring that, while your African-American hair strands are moisturized, your scalp is not clogged with so much grease that your roots are not able to breathe! To grow long African-American hair, you should keep the ends of African-American hair moisturized. As for the scalp, please do not over-grease! Simply dab a coconut oil, or a light grease on your scalp, once every three to four days, and wash African-American hair often. Doing so helps to declog the pores on the scalp, open up follicles and allow African-American hair to grow long!
