“MY HAIR WON’T GROW: Why it Seems Not to Grow and How to Fix it"

 

 

 

You’ve probably said this at least once in your life: “My hair is not growing!” or “My hair is growing slower".

If you have afro hair, you may have noticed that your hair seems to grow at a slower rate than others. This can be frustrating and disheartening, but it's important to understand that this is not a sign of poor health or lack of growth. In fact, the unique structure of Afro hair means that it can be more delicate and prone to damage, which can make it appear to be growing more slowly.

 

THE REASONS

One of the main reasons why Afro hair may seem not to be growing is due to breakage. The tight curls of Afro hair can make it more prone to breaking and splitting, which can make it appear as though your hair is not growing. This is especially true if you're using heat tools or chemical treatments on your hair, as these can cause further damage.

Another reason why Afro hair may seem not to be growing is due to lack of moisture. The tight curls of Afro hair can make it more difficult for natural oils to travel down the hair shaft, which can lead to dry, brittle hair. This can also make it more prone to breakage, which can make it appear as though your hair is not growing.

 

THE ACTION PLAN

To promote healthy hair growth in Afro hair, it's important to focus on maintaining moisture levels and reducing breakage. Here are some tips to help you do this:

  • Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner: Look for products that are specifically designed for Afro hair, as these will typically be more moisturizing. 

 

We recommend the Nguvu care set for an all-round care.

 

  • Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help to keep your hair moisturized throughout the day. 

 

 

We recommend St Claire's Leave In Conditioner.

 

  • Use a good quality hair oil or serum to keep your hair moisturized and healthy. 

 

We recommend the Uhuru Chebe Hair oil.

 

  • Avoid heat tools: If you can, try to avoid using heat tools on your hair, as these can cause damage and breakage. If you do need to use a heat tool, make sure to use a heat protectant spray.

 

  • Use a wide-tooth comb: When combing or brushing your hair, use a wide-tooth comb to avoid pulling and tugging on your curls. This will help to reduce breakage and promote healthy growth.

 

  • Protective styling: Protective styles such as wigs can help to protect your hair from breakage and damage. 

 

We recommend the Timeless Mimi wig. Remember you can enjoy 20% until the January 15th on your order!

 

  • Avoid chemicals if you can, but if you can’t, make sure you give your hair extra TLC!

 

  • Be gentle: Be gentle when washing, styling and detangling your hair. Avoid rubbing your hair too hard, as this can cause damage and breakage. Do not over-manipulate your delicate strands.

 

  • Eat well: Eating a healthy diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals can help to promote healthy hair growth. Foods that are high in protein, iron, and zinc are particularly good for your hair.

 

By following these tips and using the right products, you can help to promote healthy hair growth in Afro hair. Remember to be patient, and give your hair time to grow. With a little extra care and attention, your hair will be growing strong and healthy in no time.

 

Bisou,

Mimi.
