A bad hair day isn’t hard to find when you’re natural. Keeping those naturally beautiful coils confined is hard to do when you have coils of different shapes and sizes that like to flow freely in the directions they want to go. This can bring big challenges to natural girls and if not managed carefully cause us to lack hair growth. So, here are a few tips on how to grow your fro.
Keep your Hair and Scalp Clean
When natural girls are in the process of trying to grow our hair, we tend to layer product after product on our hair. This causes build-up and residue which blocks your pores and can stunt the growth of your hair. Using the Going Natural Detox Conditioner will help nourish your hair back to a healthy place by removing buildup from the surface then deeply penetrate your strands to replenish them. Your hair will feel clean and soft.
Detangle Your Hair
With natural coils, it’s important to keep your hair detangled. This will prevent split-ends and breakage. Always use a detangler like the No More Knots to keep your strands flexible while you untangle.
Don’t Get Consumed by the Comb
It’s so easy to get frustrated with your natural coils and get consumed in combing your hair all the time. Worry not! Sometimes you have to let your hair relax and regain its strength. Over working your hair and scalp can damage them and cause a lot of breakage.
Remove The Braids
Leaving braids in too long can cause excessive damage to the scalp when not treated properly. Research the appropriate time length for your specific style and stick with it.
