Long Hair Hype-Part 1

September 16, 2018

 

Often times the  question that comes up in the black hair care community is, "What can I do to make my hair grow longer?". This question always makes me cringe; mainly because I know within our community there is so much false information on how to answer this question. So much so that we find ourselves  searching online and jumping from stylist to stylist hoping there would be one to offer us the magic touch or ingredient that would help us. It's important that you FIRST  understand basic information about your scalp and the hair structure in order to see your hair thrive to it's fullest potential. First, we must understand that if  the scalp is not kept in the correct condition you automatically loose out on having an optimal environment for the hair to thrive. Secondly, in  order for that hair to really thrive, it's important that your scalp is kept clean (yes natural hair folks it's very important that we shampoo our hair), stimulated, toned and pliable. A scalp like this has a healthy function of blood vessels flowing through the connective tissues. It's through those tissues that good blood circulation happens which creates a good environment for growth. (hence why pregnant women hair grow at faster rates-good blood circulation) We can cause good blood circulation to happen when we take the time to gently massage and manipulate our scalp often. 

 

Next week we'll continue this conversation by talking about hair growth cycles and factors. Until then, don't fall for all the hype over hair  growth aids.
