“If You Leave It Alone, It will Grow!” – Jane B.
I have said this to many of my clients! There is a stereotype and belief by many Black people that our hair does not grow. The truth is, that while our hair has strong attributes, when constantly manipulated with chemicals and many forms of extensions and excessive heat, it weakens the hair that leads to breakage. There is a way to give your hair a break, it’s call “Protective Styling”. Styles that require very little manipulation to your own hair, thus giving it a chance to be rejuvenated and to grow. If you wear a protective style that lasts 2 months, your hair can grow between 1/2 – 1 inch. Crochet Braids and Havana Twists are two beautiful examples of Protective Styles!
