Growing natural hair certainly comes with its perks and uncertainties. These experiences altogether shape how we feel and manage our hair. As we embark on this hair care journey though, some questions boggle our minds. We sometimes want quick answers and quick fixes. Is that always possible? Well, let's all learn.
How many times should I wash my hair in a week?
The answer is not so simple. It usually depends on the type of hair you have, how much product you've applied over the week and how exposed your hair has been to dust, pollutants, etc. Ideally, washing once a week to every 2 weeks, is okay if you have normal hair/scalp. If your scalp is greasy and tends to have a lot of build up, twice a week isn't so bad.
How can I make my hair grow faster?
First off, natural hair grows. Now that that's out of the way, you should know that genes to a large extent affect how 'slow' or 'fast' your hair grows. Next, you should look at the products you use for your hair and the type of hair care regimen you're using. Hair takes time to grow. This is why it's important to be consistent with your hair care regimen and products to stimulate growth. Bottom line, everyone's hair grows differently. Let's focus on achieving healthy hair and the growth will come.
My hair is very dry. What do I do?
Three words, Treat your hair! Deep Conditioning Treatment, protein treatment, hot oil treatment, etc should be done regularly and not only when there is hair trouble. Natural hair tends to lose moisture often. This is why although moisturizing is important, deep conditioning regularly is your best bet to retaining moisture. The Deep Conditioning Treatment from Eya Naturals can be used. Alternatively, you can whip up some DIY treatments at home with avocado, eggs, honey, coconut oil, etc. depending on your preference. Do this at least once every two weeks whilst moisturizing daily.
How do I grow back my edges?
One time or the other, we've all suffered from falling edges. Growing back your edges can be very hectic. There's no easy magic fix to this. However, it is possible to grow your edges back.
Nourish your edges by moisturizing and applying castor oil/ hair growth oil/ shea butter to your edges. Massage affected area for about 5 minutes and protect your edges from tight styles, wig caps or hair glues. Be consistent with this.
Ps. If your follicles are dead, there will be no hair growth no matter the amount of work you put in unfortunately.
Can I fix split ends?
This is an interesting one. the only way of 'fixing' split ends is to cut them off. Split ends has the propensity of causing further damage to your hair if not cut off. Once every 4-6weeks, endeavour to cut off your split ends.
We hope this is enough motivation to wear your hair short and proud if you haven't yet reached your length goal.
