natural hair: reasons why your hair may not be growing

We all want to retain length for our curly locks, but what if you haven't or what if the growth you were getting comes to a halt and now you just feel like your hair is just not growing! Being that hair only grows a half inch a month I wouldn't get so caught in measuring every month, for the reason that you might be retaining length but really cant see the length considering a half inch a month is not really a noticeable amount of growth.

  1. Blow outs are still heat damage and will cause breakage
  2. Dry hair should be nipped in the bud moisturize on a regular basis
  3. Not clarifying scalp, this can cause build up on the scalp not letting your scalp properly breathe
  4. Brushing while wet can cause breakage
  5. Protein overload! check your products make sure their not protein based protein can also dry your hair out be sure to deep condition after use
  6. Not protecting your hair at night a satin bonnet, or pillow case is vital
  7. Take hair vitamins, and drink water what the inner is getting shows on the outside
  8. Try protective styles and if you don't like the look try wrapping a turban
  9. Trim and dust ends as needed
  10. Coloring your hair could also be the culprit. 

Here I have posted  a growth chart don't get stumped when you have retained growth consider all the reasons of what you may not be doing and take them into action. Also start a hair dairy take pictures every 4 to 6 months allowing the growth to be noticeable.

Hopefully this helps I will be trying the prenatal vitamin challenge which is prenatal pills grated and added to my deep conditioner so for tutorial's and results be sure to follow LecoiffureSociety on Instagram
