Growing Long Healthy Natural Hair

Here’s the big question, “How do I help my child’s hair grow fast?” Although this question can be answered in numerous ways, hair growth relies mainly on repetition. With consistency, there are some things that you can do to help your child’s hair avoid damage, breakage, and grow faster.

Here are 6 Hair Care Tips That Promote Natural Hair Growth:

  1. WASH HAIR WITH A GENTLE, SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO & DEEP CONDITION OFTEN.

Our #NaturalHairBeauties strands are delicate and prone to damage. When we wash their hair with harsh chemicals, we can strip it of its natural oils. When we shampoo our child’s hair, we want to make sure that we replenish the moisture that was lost during the shampooing process. A great way to moisturize the hair is by deep conditioning. Deep conditioning treatments strengthen the hair, replenish much needed moisture in the hair, soften the hair strands, prevent damage and split ends, and make detangling a breeze.

  1. DETANGLE WITH CARE

Work in small sections. Remove mats from the tips to the roots. If hair is severely matted, it might take a few days to work through the entire head. But, nearly all mats can be removed with proper technique, tools, and patience.

  1. TRIM HER HAIR

Trimming the ends of your child’s hair will help with growing hair faster. When the ends of your child’s hair are damaged or split, it continues to split up the hair, before it breaks off. You never want to save damaged ends. By trimming damaged ends, you are eliminating breakage and allowing the hair to continue to grow.

  1. SAY NO TO THE HEAT

The idea of heat damaging hair is real. Once your child’s natural hair is damaged by heat, there is no returning it to its natural texture. Hair that is damaged by heat is brittle and dry making healthy hair growth more difficult.

  1. ALWAYS USE PROTECTIVE HAIRSTYLES

Protective hairstyles protect the ends of your hair from breaking. These styles encourage hair growth and length retention. Protective styles include two-strand twists, flat twists, cornrows, braids, buns and more.

  1. PROTECT HER HAIR AT NIGHT WITH A SATIN BONNET

When your child goes to sleep on a cotton pillowcase, the moisture in the hair is sucked into the fibers, leaving hair dry, frizzy and brittle. Investing in a quality satin night cap will help with natural hair growth, by protecting her hair.

Final thoughts:

The key to helping natural hair grow is keeping it strong, healthy, and moisturized. You will have to pay attention to the way you moisturize and style your hair to avoid breakage and to allow your hair to grow healthy. For more content from the Riley’s Way Brand be sure to subscribe to our blog.
