My Hair Growth Secrets

Hello Beauties, 

Today is not a style post, but what's the best accessory that you can always change and update, that's right ... your hair!

Last winter, I decided to cut my own hair into a tapered fro! Though I enjoyed the short cut, I want my longer luscious curls back. I seriously have begun to realize how much I miss my puffs and ponytails. 

But, the great news I wanted to share with you all is how I have been growing my hair back in three simple steps, and no ... it does NOT include Hairfinity.

1. Drink Your Water:
As simple as it sounds, this is something we do not do often. Trust me I am guilty most days, but all we have in our kitchen is water and milk. Me and my boyfriend decided that it was time for us to clear our skin and our bodies, by consuming more water after giving birth to Emmanuel. And for the past year, not only has my skin flourished ... so has my hair during my growth journey!

2. Deep Conditioning with Coconut Oil
Deep conditioning with coconut oil can be done on both natural and relaxed hair. Coconut oil mimics the natural oil we have on our scalp, which helps promote healthy growth. Every weekend, if I'm good, or ever other weekend I like to wash or co-wash (it just depends on how I feel) and on my naked curls I just cover my scalp and hair with coconut oil and throw on a plastic shopping bag for 2-3 hours. With the coconut oil alone on your curls, your hair will be super soft, manageable and strong! 

3. Take Your Multivitamins
Ok, so I know everyone has been obsessing over Mane Choice and Hairfinity, and that's all good. Personally, I have had great experience with the continued use of my prenatal pills (I use Target brand and the Nature Made brand from Walmart), which have been successful. It is recommend for women to continue taking their prenatals after giving birth, so I have began re-taking them to help with my postpartum shedding. A multivitamin, or vitamin that focuses on hair and nails, will work just fine, just be patient and consistent.

What are you favorite ways to regrow your hair?

I prefer taking supplements like Biotin for hair growth, Chakayla. I like it that it is safe to consume even at high levels. This one is really helpful ;)
