How to grow natural hair fast?
Harboring the thought of cutting your hair because no matter how hard you try, it won’t just grow past a certain length? Or perhaps, you’ve tried countless “100% organic” products, including those advertised by Instagram influencers but your hair still breaks? Is this you, sis?
It’s OK we’ve all been there. But don’t worry, things will be different for you from this article onward.
How to Grow Natural Hair Fast
For some women, hair just grows long, and fast. However, for the rest of us, it’s different. We typically need to make extra effort tweaking our haircare regimen, changing our combs, or how often we use heat. If like me you belong to the second group, there are certain things you must do to enable you to grow natural hair fast. Follow these steps:
Step one: Detox your hair
Yes, I said to detox your hair. I guess you are wondering if detoxing hair is even a thing. Like is it even possible? Well, it is!. Detoxing your hair simply means cleaning toxins out of it. It is a vital process in going natural. If you use styling products such as volumizing mousses, shine sprays, or just have oily hair, then you need to detox about twice a month.
The best detox is using clay and apple cider vinegar recipe. Here’s how to go about it. Rinse your hair until it is very wet. Spread the detox mixture across your hair and massage it in for a few minutes. Rinse it out, and condition it. But how can you tell that it’s time to detox? Well, there’d be signs, and all you need do is watch out for them.
Signs that it’s time for a detox:
- Lack of shine/ Dull looking hair;
- Less curl definition;
- Hair feels limp or greasy;
- Frizzy Hair;
- Brittle Hair;
- Dry Hair;
- Growth Stops (want grow past a certain length);
Whenever you experience one or more of the items listed above, realize that it’s a sign that’s time to detox and clarify your natural hair.
Note that detoxing your hair is not just a one-time business, it is a process and it depends on what your long terms goals are. Using better products is key if you want to see results. Typically you will have to detox your natural hair several times before the product build-up goes away..
Next is to be sure to follow up with a clarifying shampoo, like our Root To Tip Shampoo Bar It’s important to detox and clean your hair at least twice a month to remove product build-up and get your natural hair back to how it’s supposed to feel.Now, it’s important to understand that detoxing your hair will bring about dryness that can cause breakage if left unattended. But we don’t plan on letting that happen, so the next step is to deep condition. Deep conditioning improves hair moisture and keeps it hydrated. A well hydrated and moisturized hardly ever breaks.
But there’s a catch sis; don’t just put any ole conditioner in your hair. Read the labels!! Many conditioners contain harsh chemicals that can strip your hair of all its richness, reduce strength, and ultimately affect length. Imagine deep conditioning your hair in a toxic chemical for an hour? You know what impact this will have on it. Your scalp will absorb all of this, and it could get you sick in the long run.
Try using this Herbal Healing & Hydration Hair Mask. You can blend it with a food group, such as avocado, sweet potato, banana, etc or you can add your favorite conditioner, just be sure to read and research the ingredients.
“So to sum everything up. Detox and clarify your hair at least twice a month to remove product build-up. Next, start the hair restoration process with good products.”
More Hair is in your future sis, just stay consistent!
Step two: Go Natural!!!
I bet you’re thinking: but I'm already natural? Well, going natural means a little more than not just processing your hair. It is more than just a big chop! It means that you do not apply any chemicals in or on it that alters its natural curl patterns.
Going natural is the best way to roll because it doesn’t put you at any health risk, even in the long run. Many shampoos and conditioners contain preservatives that feature toxic chemicals that get absorbed, leading to scalp irritation and hair loss. Thus, being careful about what you put in your hair is important.
Go natural, sis! Rely on preservative-free products that contain organic ingredients, and at worse, “plant-based” preservatives. If you’re looking to open a new page of hair growth with fast results, you can start with the Ultra-Effective Natural Hair Starter Kit. It features the Pre-Poo, Clean Shampoo, Herbal Hydration Mask, and the Sure Thing Growth Oil! .
One shaky assumption many naturals make is that when their hair temporarily responds to a product, it automatically means that it works perfectly. Make it a culture to observe your hair improvement over time when you start using a new product. Because in some cases, hairs stop responding six months into using some products and become dry and brittle.
“Even if you don’t use More Hair products, go natural. But know that you deserve the best hair care products and not just some trash product stuffed with harsh chemicals all for a 3-year shelf life. Know your worth and then add tax!!”
Basically, avoid every product that contains chemicals, and affects your natural curl patterns.
Step Three: Be Consistent
Although it sounds easy, being consistent is one of the hardest things to do be consistent with (no pun intended). After detoxing your hair, and deciding to go ‘really natural” by picking the right products, embark on your hair growth journey and don’t look back. But what does consistency look like? Well, it entails coming up with a regimen and sticking with it.
So, here are some things you just have to be consistent with:
Pre-poo is very important, and it should be the first step in your regimen. Besides helping with prepping your hair for shampoo and detangling process, it protects against breakage. If you aren’t sure about what product to use, you can try our Seal-It Pre-Poo out. It consists of 100% organic ingredients; exactly what the hair need to grow faster. is great for. But even if you don’t use our pre-poo be sure to pick some other really nice one to your regimen. It is truly a game-changer and you’ll find with time it makes your wash day easier.
Shampoo your hair weekly or twice a week if possible. Having a clean scalp is essential to hair growth and health. You want to use a moisturizing shampoo that is gentle on the hair and scalp, like our It’s Clean Shampoo. It’s not stripping and not filled with harsh preservatives. Also, did I mention the amazing slip that it has; it’d definitely a staple product. And oh,, if it turns out that you’ve used a lot of products within a week, it is important to clarify your hair with a clarifying shampoo such as the Root To Tip Shampoo Bar.
Note that it’s important to not allow products to build up on your hair and scalp. When shampooing be sure to massage your scalp with your hands for at least 5 to 10 minutes, or you can try a scalp massager . More Hair shampoos are packed with herbal ingredients that promote hair growth, massaging the scalp while washing is essential to assure your scalp properly adsorbs these amazing herbs.
Detangle and be gentle; like literally take your time. Detangling properly is vital in the natural hair regimen. Not detangling properly can lead to split ends and breakage. Always have it at the back of your mind that hairs are fragile, regardless of how thick they may feel to the touch. Be sure to use a product that will help prevent breakage.
Benefits Of Weekly Deep Conditioning:
Deep condition weekly is an essential part of any natural hair regimen, especially for curly hair. Just like the rest of your body, hair requires nourishment to stay healthy. Regular deep conditioning provides your strands with the necessary nutrients. Your hair is at its strongest when it is well nourished. Personally, I deep-condition with a hair mask weekly, because I truly love how soft my hair feels afterward. Of course, I use More Hair’s Herbal Hydration Hair Mask.
Moisturizing is key to a healthy head of hair. Deep conditioning your hair helps to replace moisture lost from everyday wear and tear. Without moisture, hair becomes dry and brittle, making it more prone to breakage. Note that you should only moisturize your hair at times when it is very dry. Remember to wet your hair before applying a moisturizer as it allows hair strands to absorb the product.
Even if you don’t color or iron your hair often, it is still susceptible to damage. Even the gentlest brush can cause breakage to the hair’s cuticle. A conditioning treatment repairs this damage by penetrating the hair shaft and forcing the cuticles to lie flat. And that’s not all – deep conditioning doesn’t just repair already damaged hair, it also prevents damage from happening in the future.
Dry, brittle hair snaps and breaks under tension, resulting in split ends and breakage. The healthier your hair is, the more resistant it’ll be to breakage.
Deep conditioning your hair does so much more than improve its general appearance. It also helps keep your individual strands healthy and strong. Hair that is deep conditioned regularly is more manageable, softer, and less prone to breakage and frizz, and able to retain length. There’s no better time than now to treat your locks to a little extra loving!
Massage your scalp consistently. Yes sis, scalp massages actually work! It is recommended to massage the scalp for at least 20 to 30 minutes to see rapid results. There have long been anecdotal reports of scalp massages promoting hair growth. People claim that scalp massage has caused visible improvement in their hair length and health by increasing scalp wellness and removing some of the impediments to healthy hair growth.
Now there’s the science to back up these claims. In a 2016 study, regular scalp massages were confirmed to result in the growth of thicker hair. Participants massaged their scalps for about four minutes per day over a 24-week period, resulting in the growth of visibly thicker, stronger hair. A 2019 study with 340 participants supported those original findings by reproducing similar results. The participants each massaged twice per day to improve hair loss, using similar scalp massage techniques. Approximately 69% of participants said the massages improved their alopecia, reducing hair loss and encouraging the growth of new hair.
If you're looking for longer locks, you can encourage even more hair growth by adding a hair serum such as our Sure Thing Hair Oil for fuller, thicker hair before you start massaging. Massage works the serum deeper into the scalp, increasing penetration as you combine the power of a scalp massage with ingredients that encourage thicker hair for added benefits.
Regardless of your product routine, scalp massage can help increase the impact of the products you use, all while feeling great and supporting a host of mental and physical health benefits. Another thing you can do to grow your natural hair fast is to use a scalp scrubber. It can help you exfoliate your scalp to remove product build-up and sebum, which could be weighing down your roots. Scalp scrubbers work best when used in the shower with shampoo.
Moisturize Your Hair and Lightly Oil/Grease/Butter Your Scalp
Moisturizing your hair is super important when it comes to getting it to grow fast. However, while you’re at it, remember that how you go about it will determine the results you’ll get. There are two main methods of moisturizing hair, they include the LOC and the LCO methods.
In case you’re hearing these terms for the first time, they’re simply acronyms that represent what comes first during the moisturizing process. Basically, they’re the sequence you are meant to apply hair products to increase moisture retention and ultimately lead to faster and longer hair growth.
While LOC stands for Liquid, Oil, Cream, LCO means Liquid, Cream, and then Oil. It is worth noting that while both methods are effective, one will provide you better and faster results than the other.
But how can you tell what method is best for you?
The simple answer is: it depends on your hair porosity. Generally, the LCO method is ideal for people with low porosity hair, while the LOC method is best for high porosity hair.
It's important to note that both methods are very effective, but that each method caters to the individual's hair porosity. While the LOC method is recommended for high porosity hair, those with low porosity hair will benefit more from the LCO method
There’s so much more you should know about these methods of moisturizing, but we can only tell you so much in one guide. For more information about the LCO and LOC methods, check out our specialized article on the topic.
Step Four: Grow Your Hair from the Inside
Did you know that there is another way to grow your natural hair fast other than topical application? There really is, and although it might shock you, it’s the most fundamental human thing: eating.
Yes, eating not only helps the body grow but the hair too! Ro Huntriss, a popular London-based dietician and nutritionist, asserts that there exists a range of foods that contain specific minerals and vitamins that boost hair growth tremendously. Some of the foods she recommends include protein-rich meals such as eggs, sardines, chicken, and nuts. Other important foods for hair growth include berries, sweet potatoes, seeds and spinach.
Aren’t we forgetting something? Of course we are: water! Just as plants need water to grow, so do hairs. Water supports the key vitamins that contribute to hair growth. Drinking a minimum of a half gallon a day will not only help your hair to grow fast, but will also improve its strength and lustre.
And sis, much like you need dietary supplements to provide the nutrients your body has a hard time producing, you need one for your hair. Try our Inside Out Hair Growth Tea and you may wake up with hair like Rapunzel’s the next day. OK, we’re exaggerating, but for reals, the Growth Tea really speeds things up.
