To begin with I would like to start by dispelling a few hair myths.
1. Your hair doesn’t grow – Of course it does. Everyone’s hair grows, it’s as simple as that! If you hair appears the same length year after year it is simply that it is breaking at the same rate as it’s growing so you are not retaining any significant length.
2. Long hair is genetic – While there is a genetic component that determines how fast your hair grows (between 4-6 inches a year), only your hair habits will determine how long it will remain. You could have the fastest growing hair but if your hair is breaking at the same rate that it grows, it remains the same length. My own hair grew to waist length even though I only get 4 inches a year!
3. You have to have be natural to grow your hair long – Nope, you certainly don’t have to be natural to grow your hair long! Relaxed hair can grow to be every bit as long, thick and luxurious with proper care. I generally recommend that you seriously consider going natural because it is much easier to achieve your length goals. Not to mention that natural hair rocks!
