4 Tips for Growing Long, Natural Hair


 My Trifecta for Hip Length Hair

People that I come across these days assume that my hair has always been long and that my genetics are responsible. Rather annoyingly, some people have come straight out and said ‘being mixed race must have really helped you grow your hair to that length’. NO, no , no the truth is I have always had these genes but in twenty odd years I was never able to grow my hair past my collar bone. It has been changes to my hair care practices that have allowed me to grow my hair down to my hips.
I wanted to share my tips with the community and say …YES you can grow your hair down to your behind. My trifecta is very simple moisturize, strengthen and protect.  Here it is in a bit more detail.

Crisco for Smooth, Shiny Natural Hair?!

 

Curlies are known for using weird things in our tresses. We are not shy about adding what most would cook or blend as a meal and put onto our hair, because we know the benefits they offer us that our straighter-haired friends would not be caught dead using. It is perfectly okay to skip the tasty guacamole for a deep conditioning masque or bypass sautéing a dish with that olive oil to seal our ends. To know us is to understand this side of us, so as I peak your interest with Crisco, do not frown up it! You know I am going somewhere good with this.
