2 inches in 2 months

Updated: Aug 8, 2019

About two months ago on the 20th of June I cut all my hair off. If you want to read about what prompted my decison to do so, click here. Today will be a little under 3 months since I went bald. Life with short hair is pretty amazing. I spend about 2 minutes on my hair each morning and my daily hair routine consits of the three products pictured below.

I dont put too much products in my hair because I don't want my hair to suffocate. I'm no hair guru, but I do believe that professionals can agree that washing (or co-washing) your hair couple times a week, and letting it breathe by not overusing hair products and drinking lots of water, can contribute greatly to hair growth.

When you have hair as curly as mine or hair in the 4(a-c) range, you dont want to under-moisturize (if that is even a word...) your hair. Hair that is very kinky can become dry pretty quick...especially if you are in Florida like me. The multitude of curls can prvent the oils from your scalp from reaching the tip of your hair (hence why white people have to wash their hair more often than blacks). So when you see black hair bloggers preach mosturize, mosturize, moisturize, you know why.

From my time being natural I have noticed that my hair has less breakage when it is moisturized. It might be a no-brainer but if you have 4c hair try only doing your hair when it is wet instead of dry and see how much less hair is left on the brush or comb then when you brush or comb your hair dry.

Moral of the story is, if you have kinky thick hair and having problems with growth, try some of these tips and see if it will work for you. At the end of the day consistency is key. But don't take my word for it... I'm not a licensed hair stylist, just a health major student tyring to help a sister out :)
