Do you look at your hair length month after month and think, "Has my hair grown at all"?
Here are 4 reasons why you may not be seeing the length retention you so long for #HairGoals.
We live in a culture where we want things to almost happen overnight. We watch youtube and see women with waist-length hair and think either, " They must have good genes" or " It must be the products they use".
Now I am not arguing against either one of these points because genetics play a huge role in how your hair grows and if you have any growth problems in your family then you already know your source.
To the next point " It must be the products they use" For me, this is a yes and a no.
Hair products can‘t grow your hair faster👈🏾
✅ They can help keep your hair healthy so that your hair continues to grow at its optimum level in its growth cycle.
✅ Hair products can strengthen and protect your hair from certain damage, keeping it from breaking and allowing you to retain length!
But the thought that any hair product will give you waist-length hair in a few months is a myth.
4 Reason Why Your Not Reaching Your Hair Length Goals!
Look, I get it! Those youtube videos give us natural ladies so much life and we want to try out every style on a day-to-day basis, but we can't!
Especially us 4a-c sistas. Our hair needs protection. Did you know those of African descent's hair is the most prone to damage & dryness? I'm sure you did but I say this fact because we don't treat our hair as gently as we should.
So heres a tip: Find a cute style you love and make sure it can stretch out at least a week , but throughout that week you still need to make sure your hair is not drying out and loosing moisture.
Get yourself some moisturizing hair spray!
You can hurt your hair growth by putting it in protective styles and thinking that your job is done!
You still have to make sure your hair is well moisturized in any protective style especially if your hair is already prone to frizziness, dryness, and split ends!
