How to Grow Long, Natural Hair. EASY Tips That Work.

was natural for several years before I got serious about retaining length.  When I made the decision, to buckle down, my goal (and one of my obsessions) was to acheive waist-length hair.  Somewhere along the way, my focus shifted primarily to just keeping my hair healthy and moisturized. 

Although, I was no longer obsessing over hair growth, out of habit, I continued with my normal natural hair-growth routines and regimens.  Now, (as I literally reach back and do an unofficial length-check) my hair is about an inch above my bootay.  Aye!!  

My "want-more-with-little-effort" nature forced me to come up with a natural hair care routine that's so simple, no one ever believes it.  My daily (morning & bedtime combined) routines take a total of 5 minutes or less.  After all, ain't nobody got, nor wants time for that.  

So, I created this cheat sheet of what's worked for me.  As always, it's best to experiment and do your own research to determine what works best for your natural hair, but certainly be free to use this as a guide to help you along the way.    

I should warn you though; when you find out what your hair loves, it will show up and show out.  So, be ready!

Thanks for reading and Mo' Hair!

    1. Hey sis! You're so welcome. I love to keep it simple, and has and is still working for me. People say natural, afro hair is high maintenance; I beg to differ, because I ain't got tiiiiime for all that! LOL Thank you for commenting. Let me know what works!! xoxo

  3. Love the cheat sheet. What do you use to moisturize daily?

  4. Hi Tonia! I'm glad you found it helpful. I always mist my mix of a water-based leave-in & aloe vera, then follow up with an oil (either olive, coconut, avacodo--which ever is on hand). That's my go to no matter what. When I'm keeping my hair in stretched styles, then I do my routine before wraping my hair up for bed (so that the moisture doesn't cause it to strink). Here's my article with a little more info. about locking in moisture. http://www.iamrallygirl.com/2016/04/how-to-seal-in-moisture.html I hope this helps! :)
