Many woman want longer, thicker, shinier hair. We always see women flaunting their bouncy tresses in shampoo and other product ads.

5 Reasons Your Natural Hair Is Not Retaining Length

by Sabrina Perkins of SeriouslyNatural.org

Many in the natural hair community are consumed with hair growth but the real concern should be on hair retention. Your hair IS growing and while there are four stages of hair growth, and while all are not growing phases, they continue throughout our lives.

While hair growth does slow down as we age, hair growth can be hindered by things like manipulation, weather, hormones, illness and medications, too. Despite all that, hair growth continues on in these four stages illustrated below:

So, why is your hair staying at only one length? Your hair is not retaining length-- it's breaking off as fast as it's growing.

Why the Health of Your Scalp Matters and its role in Natural Hair Growth

IG @lolamonaija

by Rochelle Farquharson via blacknaps.org

The state of your scalp dictates whether or not your hair grows! Say Whaaaaaaaat? But my hair is always growing! Yes it grows, but only if you maintain a healthy scalp.

The scalp is the foundation of healthy hair, and to achieve length you must maintain a regimen that caters to keeping the hair and scalp clean and healthy. Scalp health is not just about maintaining the skin that is visible through your strands, but it’s also about preserving what’s underneath. I’m referring to the hair follicle.
