How I Grew My Natural Hair | Length Retention – SimplYounique

Add me on FACEBOOK: In this video I am discussing a few things that helped me grow my hair and retain length.. Hopefully you find the information helpful.. I have natural or chemical free hair.. I have fine, medium density hair with multiple hair types but majority of it is 4a.. My last relaxer: July 2009 My big chop: November 2009 I hate the whole hair typing system and don’t pay much attention to it.. I use whatever product I want based on how my hair reacts to it. In this video, my hair is in an old braid out.. I did my braids on freshly washed hair, let it air dry until it was 85-90% dry, and used the argan oil eco styler gel along with sweet almond oil to do my braids. I wore the braids to bed, tying it down with a satin scarf. The next morning I just unraveled them. Braid Out Maintenance: Mist hair with water and use sweet almond oil or extra virgin olive oil to re-braid. How I Moisturize My Hair: My Products Video: Playlist for Different Hairstyles: *NOTE* I will make another video discussing how often to wash your hair.. I purposely did not discuss that topic in this video.. Eyeshadow Info: Goldilux by sugarpill cosmetics ————- How I Grew My Hair | Length Retention ~Kerry~

    I remember just at the end of the 1st year after i cut my hair, one of my friends found out that I wash my hair frequently. ( I shampoo about once every 4-6 weeks) and she was very adamant in saying that our hair should not be washed often because we remove the oils, Her head was a total mess, from the time I knew her it was the same length, less than 2 inches, while in the 1st year after I chopped my hair had grown about 11 inches. indeed water is the best moisturizer that the hair needs.

  7. jacienz says:

    I can’t believe that in this day and age there are still people going around saying that water isn’t good for the hair. And then on top of it they spread that nonsense on pages. It’s just amazing how the lie is so much easier to believe than the truth. Ladies the scalp needs to be kept clean in order to thrive, the problem is the harsh shampoos which has a drying effect, when hair is co-washed or rinsed, seal the moisture in with oils or butter or whatever and you’re good to go.

    You have done so well – thank you for sharing your journey and you advice too – blessings and best wishes :-)

  10. JEAN SMITH says:

    There now, did that bolster your ego? Do you feel better now that you have repeatedly expressed your imagined racial superiority? The lady chose to share her positive experience with HER hair growth. You cannot rain on her parade or anyone else’s. Miserable little (trolls) such as yourself would do well to learn that. Dismissed

    *excuse my spelling lol I’m on this touch screen typing to fast :-)

  21. Eyespychica says:

    @Blueindii water only open the cuticle. If a persn wets their hair (ultimately opening their hair’s cuticle) then the hydration level depletes. The hair being in a curl already doesn’t allow the cuticle to stay completely closed. Our hair is dryer naturally because we don’t produce as much oil. No on is trying to be like u when they wet their hair. It helps define their curls. Afro texture was a choise started long ago by us and not an original texture we’re restricted to. :-)

  22. SimplySOoLovely says:

    if her hair is the “course” type and her advice will “not” really help you and your “curly” hair why even watch the video! Naturally curly or kinky hair needs water to be moisturized thats why the first and most important ingredient in a moisturizer is usually WATER! Some prefer a moisturizer..some prefer water…to each is own.
