How often should you trim your hair? Despite the myth, trimming your hair based on a time frame, such as every 6 weeks is not a method to make your hair grow faster. Trimming does not make hair grow. When trying to grow your hair, you should only trim uneven and split ends. Wearing protective styles can help reduce the need for trims so your hair can grow longer even faster.Hair Trim


Aloe PlantDid you know that Aloe Vera is a hair miracle worker. It not only stops hair falling and stimulates hair production, but creates a healthy scalp as well. Try it by massaging the gel or juice ( try a spray bottle for easy application) onto the scalp and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes or overnight before shampooing your hair.

Tips on How to Grow Black Hair

Here are the top five things you should do to see longer hair growth.

Make Your Hair Healthy
• Healthy hair is growing hair. If your hair isn’t in the best shape it can be, you’re robbing yourself of length.
• Damaged hair must be repaired before you can see the rewards from your hair growth regimen.
• Cut off all split and broken ends and do protein treatments to get your hair ready for the growth stage.

Deep Condition with Heat
• Moisture is the most important thing for healthy hair. It’s what keeps your hair flexible and builds elasticity into your strands.
• The more flexible your hair is, the less likely it is to break through combing and styling.
• Use heat and a plastic cap to help your moisturizing treatments penetrate your hair. This makes your conditioners ten times more effective which gives you faster results.

Dust Your Ends
• Trimming keeps split ends away but it also makes your hair shorter.
• Dusting is a micro trimming technique that stops split ends before they even start.
• Take 1/8th of an inch or less off the ends of your hair every couple of months, to prevent splits and tears from traveling up the length.
• If your hair is already healthy, dusting is excellent for keeping it that way.

Throw Away Your Hot Tools
• The direct heat from hair tools like blow dryers, flat and curling irons cause the most damage to your hair.
• Frying your hair daily with hot tools singes your ends, thins them out and encourages breakage and split ends.
• Use gentle or no heat styling techniques like wet sets with a bonnet dryer or air drying to keep your hair healthy and growing strong.

Use Seamless Combs
• Plastic combs have ridges on the seam that shred and tear your hair over time causing split ends and damage.
• Use seamless bone combs to help your hair grow faster and healthier. The smoothness of the combs surface doesn’t catch hairs and pull them out. Less split ends and damage mean more length for you.

Stop hurting your curls

Though our hair seems so headstrong and thick, and mine tears up a cheap comb, the individual strands of hair are gossamer thin and delicate. They are damaged easily, and break off when damaged. Your hair won’t grow when damaged. If you can eliminate all the ways your hair is damaged, then it will grow to its maximum length (as long as your health is okay). Some things that damage our hair the most:

Relaxing or straightening.
Anything that involves sodium hydroxide or calcium hydroxide. These are the same chemicals in hair depilatories. The only difference is the hair removers are left on a bit longer. This is why they also work so well as drain openers; they eat up everything in their path. I spent most of my life applying these chemicals to my hair because I thought it would make my hair more manageable. I walked around with scabs all over my head because of how severe they were, yet could not for the life of me figure out why my hair wouldn’t grow.

Cooking your hair.
Anything that would blister your skin doesn’t feel so great on your hair either. Flat irons can actually melt the cuticles of your hair. Curling irons as well as flat irons can boil the water within your wet hair and make little bubbles within the shaft. Your hair will break off at these bubbles. A mild and careful blow-drying, especially with a diffuser should be okay, provided the heat isn’t too high, and you don’t concentrate the heat on any one spot.

Rough combing
Ripping a comb or brush through your tight curls will not only hurt, but it will damage your cuticles and stretch your hair through the force used to get the comb through. If your hair is stretched too far, it will break.
