What hair type do you have 4 a,b or c? I'm a 4a zig zag and small s-curl combo. Actually 4 inches is quite a bit of hair if you're 4a. You will need to trim your hair I'd say maybe 2-3 times a year, especially in the summer. I noticed that's when my hair grew the fastest. I was also told recently by my stylist that folic acid helps grow hair. And from time to time I actually have my hair pressed or flat ironed. Another thing I always do with my hair is cold wash daily in the spring, summer & fall. During the winter at least 3 times a week. For me I find that Organic Root Stimulator products work the best. I don't like the way any other product feels on my hair or conditions my hair. I also on occasion make my own homemade mayonnaise condition with olive oil and egg added for extra shine.
Hope this helps.
What is a cold wash? Where do I find folic acid? i appreciate your comment. I
dont know my hair type.
Stay away from products with alchohol in them, drink plenty of water, exercise, and maintain a healthy diet---overall health has an affect on your hair in a lot of cases.
However, you should be more concerned that the hair you do have is healthy and not how long it is.
What makes hair beautiful is the hair being healthy, regardless of the length, color, texture.
One thing that people with tightly coiled hair experience here is keeping our hair moisturized which is essential to healthy hair. This is going to sound wierd, but I haven't used hair grease in quite some time. I prefer liquid hair oils or natural shea butter to grease. Also as I stated in my earlier comment, Organic Root Stimulator products just seem to work great on my hair.
Your hair will grow faster and longer.
But, as the girls have said ... healthy hair is what's most important!!
dry so i have a daily moisturizer. Healthy hair is most important. I'm glad I have4 inches compared to someone with less. But still long hair is a goal. No matter how healthy it is,I can do more with long hair. I am taking care of my hair to make it it's healthiest. I have taken so much advice from people about hair and researched it.
