Date: May 24, 2021
If you’re blessed with curly, strong black hair, you might need something more special to take care of it on a regular basis. One of the most frequently searched for questions for black hair owners is how to grow that beautiful black hair longer, thicker, and healthier. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, “more than half of African American women cite thinning hair or hair loss as their top hair concern.” Hair growth seems to be a real concern to many women today.
Before we get down to recommending any products, however, we need first to understand the slight differences between black hair and other hair.
A report from the US National Library of Medicine from the National Institutes of Health indicates that black hair is more prone to breakage due to an asymmetrical hair follicle shape. Additionally, the report also points out that the weaker bond between water molecules and the protein molecules in black hair fuels the fragility of black hair even more. In general, black hair is drier and more susceptible to chemical and physical damage due to its structure.
Finally, the question of the day, does black hair grow more slowly than other hair? Unfortunately, the answer is not by much, but yes. According to Dr. Neil Persadsingh’s study, black hair has an average growth of 0.9cm per month while other hair grows an average of 1.3 cm per month.
Knowing the unique challenges black hair faces guides us to seek out natural ingredients infused hair products with a focus on nourishing, moisturizing, and hair growth. In this spirit, here are the products we recommend.
A healthy scalp provides a solid foundation for hair growth.
