5 Tips for Growing Long, Natural Hair



 Michelle Thames of HappilyEverNatural

I started my natural hair journey in 2009 and the number one question I get from other naturalistas is what did I do to grow my hair so long.  My answer? I simply stopped getting relaxers... there's some genetics going on too, though. It's really about length retention and not growth.

Many women become discouraged and disappointed when they do not reach the length they want quickly. Length retention is possible! I will share with you a few of my tips that helped me retain length over the years.

Here are some reasons why your hair growth seems to have stagnated:
