Growth Hair Treatment

UltraGrowth hair loss treatment - How good does it work?
UltraGrowth - Full Customer Review

I don't know if you have heard all the news about this new hair loss treatment system but i was sure sucked in by it all, especially seeing as my hair loss always shyed my confidence and made me keep my hat on when I went out.

Anyhow i thought i would share my thoughts and opinions and general information on the UltraGrowth product in the form of a real customers review.

Hope you like it as im not really a writer myself but do enjoy sharing my thoughts and opinion's.

Firstly - What is UltraGrowth?

Thought i would start by telling you exactly what UltraGrowth is and what it does!

It is an at home system to grow back lost hair and i heard about it when searching for ways to stop my hair loss and found they were a newer company (or so i am aware) who only sell their product online.

Once you get your package and open it it has the bottles inside with the instructions on the box unlike most of the others ive used in the past which means i don't have to guess how much i should be using.

When you put it on for the first time even with my highly sensitive scalp it doesn't cause redness like others and even after me using it for about 15 days now it still hasn't had any negative effects and others ive talked too have had none either so as far as im concerned its 110% safe even with my sensitive scalp.
It has a colorless and odourless solution inside and does not cause stickiness after you apply it. You just use it in the morning and then again at night. Simple as that!

Only takes me a few minutes a day and so far my hair is already stopped thinning and falling out, and starting to see some spots where regrowth is starting to occur.

If you wanted more information about the product then visit the UltraGrowth site ( http://www.ultra-growth.com ) as by no means have i gone through almost everything here.

My Results and Opinion

Now ive tried loads of other products including those pills and the kinda special light combs that you can buy but it seems both of these things don't seem to do alot except cause redness on the scalp.

Also I have thought about trying the in-office hair treatments, but they can cost up to 00 to get the full results. That is definitely a huge turn off.

Now onto this UltraGrowth product. I was really hesitant at first with ordering it from their site but everything has gone fine and it has for others too.
My Results!

As I said before it's been about 15 days now since I started using the product and even after the first week I could see the results. Not only has my hair stopped falling out, I have noticed that my hair is getting thicker and fuller.
My Opinion

I am already ordering the product again so that I can continue to grow my hair back but don't think i will be needing to use this as much as i have been...

I still have loads left in the product but i just don't want to run out so thought i would order my next batch now instead of forgetting later on.

I have now recommended 3 friends to the UltraGrowth site and hopefully you will also be in a position to order some too. Especially with it being the full product for a very reasonable price.

I'll never need to look for another hair loss treatment system let alone pay a Doctor thousands to give me a 'Transplant'. If i could say thanks to UltraGrowth then i would be on my knees doing it now.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    any of you tried lee stafford hair growth treatment or shampoo?
    im thinking of buying the lee stafford hair growth treatment and the shampoo and conditioner because im trying to grow my hair but it just doesn't grow and im pretty sure it hasn't reached the length where it stops growing (i know there's a proper word for it i just cant remember it) and im hoping they would help it to grow but idon'tt really want to buy them if theydon'tt work.so if you've tried them or know any body who has tried them do they work?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes I have got it. Not sure if it helps to grow it though. It's a nice conditioner. However that nuskin is supposed to help and like me I'm growing my hair too and the person who mentioned it - thank you for the tip! I'm going to look it up, I heard it actually thickens hair too.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is a good hair growth treatment?
    My boyfriend wants to grow his hair out without waiting through the awkward inter-midden growth stages. What is a good product for him to use and what would the possible side effects be?

    • ANSWER:
      5000 mcg of biotin taken daily. No real side effects or possibilty of overdosing as biotin is water soluble & the body excretes what it does not use.

  3. QUESTION:
    Do you think these organic root stimulator products work as a hair growth treatment for Afican American women?
    Today (8/1/07) I bought three organic root stimulator products: Uplifting Shampoo, Hair Mayonnase, and Carrot Oil. I tried it today, and it feels like its working so far. But, I was wondering if these products honestly work as a hair growth treatment for African American women, or did I just spent my money for nothing. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Dont go out and buy anything expensive.
      First: Purchase a mild Shampoo (To Clarify hair, I will explain why)

      Second: TRIM your hair ends (May 1 1/2 to 2 inches)

      Third: Here's the magic part: Mix olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil, avocado oil and a "little" honey, (honey u will have to heat so it can blend). Either leave on ALL day or all night (if all nite, DONT use honey)

      Use a teaspoon of every oil and honey,.... a little more if ur hair is long or a little less if ur hair is short

      Repeat this 3-4 times a week, your hair will grow like a weed, fortify, reconstruct, moisturize, soften & remove all frizz I promise,..... and it will be super shiny!!!!

      The clairifying shampoo will help take the oil off your hair when u shower

      You can also use a conditioner but get a light conditioner that wont wiegh ur hair down, becuz u can over condition, I use herbl essences "clean happy" conditioner.

      When I do this at nite, I wake up, shampoo & condition, rinse and style as usual. Has worked for years

      You can find olive oil anywere, but the other oils you will have to buy at a local organics store, wholes foods or BJ's health corner.

  4. QUESTION:
    does this hair growth treatment work?
    i just bought a hair growth treatment and I wanted to know if it really worked. I think its called triple gro tea tree oil or something.Please answer I really need to know.

    • ANSWER:
      They all pretty much work the same, the only sure ways to make your hair grow are frequently giving your scalp minimassages and talking to it. (hah jk)

  5. QUESTION:
    Is there some kind of hair growth treatment that I can use to make my hair grow longer, faster?
    I have short hair and I would like to make it grow faster.

    • ANSWER:
      I dont know if you can actually make your hair grow longer, faster but u can try to oil message your haid twice a week to make it a lot better. U will see the difference right away after shampoo and conditioning it. Use, shampoo and condition it about 3 times a week. Brush your hair through out the day so, it doesn't get tangled a lot but brush it very softly so, you do't break it. try to start brushing it from the end and go higher slowly. Also, use serum at the end to give it more condition and a layer so that it stays protected. I hope that helps.

  6. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

  8. QUESTION:
    What are some good hair growth treatment products for African American women?
    Like ones that you actually know work fast and well.

    • ANSWER:
      those "hair growht" treatments don't really work. the average person's hair grow's 1/2 inch a month. Mine grows an inch a month, so it can differ for some people The only thing that you can do is wash it every week and make sure every time that you wash it you use a leave in conditioner. i deep condition every two weeks. And i trim my ends every two months when i get a perm. its also good to use ALL natural products. I use jane carter solution which is pretty good. its expensive but is worth it. And i spritz my hair with water every day at night, a little it helps add moisture. ANd please STAY AWAY from Doo Gro has mineral oil as its main ingredient. mineral oil is BAD for African American hair. its a no no it will only breeak your hair further.. Please stay away rom products that contain mineral oil. it should have a hazard sign on it

  9. QUESTION:

  10. QUESTION:
    What is a good hair growth treatment i can use. (for men)?
    My husband is very young, 24, to be exact. And he is completely losing his hair like an old man. I recently suggested he go bald until i can find some type of hair cream that really works. So, if you can, plz give me some creams that really work. nothing that only work for so long and you keep buying more. Something that's going to help him get his natural hair and stay that way. Well, not forever of course. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry but once it's gone it's gone. If the folicle is dead you can't get it to grow again. Premature baldness can be caused by lots of things from stress to genetics so you may consider speaking with the doctor. Good luck

  11. QUESTION:
    Has anybody tried the Ultra-growth hair treatment?
    Hi, I recently came across this product via web search and it seems to be promising. Has anyone really tried it and seen the results? Please let me know. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      Ha. I wouldn't buy it and just let your hair grown naturally. Because if the product has any side effects you might end up losing hair then growing it.

  12. QUESTION:
    I bought olive oil hair treatment will it help with hair growth?
    im a boy and i want to grow my hair long and my hair is taking forver to grow, i bought an olive oil hair treatment and i want to make sure if it will help in faster hair growth? And can someone give me directions on how to use it and when?

    • ANSWER:
      The treatment will keep you hair healthy and moisturized to keep your hair from breaking when it grows, but it will not make you hair grow any faster. If you have CCaucasian like hair, maybe once a month, if you have coarse (more like African American hair) hair every week or 2 weeks. To help your hair grow faster you can take hair vitamins from GNC or Vitamin Shoppe. I take hair-skin-nail vitamins from the Vitamin Shoppe that seem to be working. Also, give urself nightly scalp massages.

  13. QUESTION:
    What's the best hair growth treatment?
    Im trying to figure out what's the best hair growth treatment. Does anyone know?

    • ANSWER:

  14. QUESTION:
    What's the best treatment for hair growth?
    I'm desperate to regrow my hair asap and I mean from the roots. Are there any good vitamins or foams or any other type of treatment to stimulate my hair growth? 10 points for the best answer!

    • ANSWER:
      biotin is amazing. i have used it for months now and have seen great results! you just go to a vitamin store and purchase them. it also helps with your nails, etc. i have bought the hair, skin, nails vitamins and they did NOT work for me. they are missing some ingredients and are not the best choices. make sure if you use ANY heat, use a heat protectant. split ends are too easy to get and most people don't understand that hair splits up and then breaks off. compare it to a crack in a windshield. if you don't nip it in the bud(cut the ends off) it will just keep getting worse. as long as you take the biotin, stay healthy and active, your hair will grow:) hope this helped

  15. QUESTION:
    can a hair growth treatment help hair grow? is it bad?
    im only 14, but i want my hair to grow faster and healthy,
    so you know those hair growth treatments that say if old people
    are balled they can use that.. would that be bad for a young person if they only want to use it for longer healthier hair?

    • ANSWER:
      the growth systems are mainly for thicker hair if your hair is thinning.

  16. QUESTION:
    Does Doo Gro Leave in growth treatment make hair grow?
    I'm getting my hair cut to get all the damaged ends off and I straighten my hair A LOT. I want my hair long and for it to grow as fast as possible! So let me know if it actually makes hair grow, if not let me know if there's anything that will help! Please don't say it's impossible to make your hair grow because I don't care if that's all you have to say. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.
      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

  17. QUESTION:
    will my hair become damaged if i use too much of the hair growth treatment on it?
    what i mean is

    if use olive oil, coconut oil, honey, and avocado on my hair ... will it become damaged if i use it constantly.
    so is it okay if use it like 3 times a week?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't over use it, too much of anything is bad. But I'm pretty sure since it's good for your hair that it won't hurt :)

  18. QUESTION:
    I want longer hair; anyone know of a proven hair growth treatment that works and doesn't involve pain?
    The more natural the treatment, the better. I don't want to have to do anything crazy like stand on my head, nor do I have lots of money to waste on fraudulent products. I'm looking at growing my own hair, so weaves and hair extensions aren't options. What has worked for you?

    • ANSWER:
      Skip the Nioxin pills but do get the shampoo and scalp therapy. It stimulates your scalp (it's makes your head cold causing the blood to rush there to warm it, in turn giving your hair follicles extra nurishment). You should see signifigant growth using these products. They are spendy though. Keeping your ends trimmed will NOT make your hair grow faster, but it will keep your hair from breaking off because the ends are bad. Obviously when your hair breaks off you counter-act any growing it's done.

  20. QUESTION:
    Can I Use A Hair Loss Treatment to Increase Hair Growth?
    I hate the haircut that I have, and I was wondering if using a treatment for hair LOSS could help my hair to grow longer. Would that work?

    • ANSWER:
      Nope. It'll stimulate your follicles. And haircuts don't kill follicles. Chances are, they're working. They're just not working fast enough. NOTHING will help your hair grow faster. Taking care of it by using professional products, drinking lots of water, and taking vitamins will help it to break off less.. but NOTHINGGGGG will make it grow faster.

      And don't believe the Pantene Beautiful Lengths commercial. They're full of crap. That'll just break it off with extended use.

  27. QUESTION:
    Hair Genesis for hair loss, does Hair genesis really work for treatment/growth hair ?

    • ANSWER:
      The most common form of hair loss in men is by far male pattern baldness (the scientific term for this is androgenic alopecia.) When you suffer from this condition, the hair on your head progressively gets thinner and thinner (this may take years) until it is lost completely. It is called "pattern baldness" because hair is usually lost in a well-defined "M" shape.

      There is a variety of causes contributing to hair loss. However, according to medical studies, in males the predominant cause is the excess level of the androgenic hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT.) DHT plays a role in the development of male secondary sex characteristics but an increased level of DHT leads to so-called follicular miniaturization, by which the hair shaft width is constantly decreased and the hair becomes thinner. Previously it was thought that baldness was inherited but there is no definitive proof that this is the case.

      Until recently, the prevalent approach to stopping hair loss was to use such chemical prescription drugs as Ministered (marketed as Propecia) and Minoxidil. However, it turned out that these drugs do not always help and have many side effects including erectile dysfunction, gynecomastia (growth of breast in men), acne, headaches and others. While these synthetic chemicals help some patients, I wouldn't risk losing growing breasts along with my hair!

      Fortunately, when it comes to regaining lost hair and preventing hair loss, there is an alternative to synthetic drugs. There are natural treatments, which work just as well or even better and what is more importantly, they don't have any side effects. Some of them can even give you permanent results (which is not the case with drugs.) Finally, the ingredients contained in natural hair loss treatments have been used by humans for millennia. This proves their effectiveness better than medical research, doesn't it?

      You can order a free of Hair Loss product from the source link below. So far all I have heard is that the Enchanced " Hair Loss Provillus" is helping people to get hair back fast!

  33. QUESTION:
    I have a huge problem. I need a hair growth treatment that really works and is pretty fast. HELP !?
    I had hair extensions put in my hair about 4 months ago, and when I got them taken out I did not like what I saw. My hair is now up to my chin, very thin, and extremely damaged. I have found a product to restore the damage, but now I need something to make it grow--fast. I have looked everywhere and asked around but nobody can seem to help. Please give me serious answers. Thank you so much.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair extensions can be very harmful to your hair as you have found out. Try a product called Nioxin-it is made for men but has a womens formula as well. It is more for thinning hair, but will help with growth also. Next, start with a multi vitamin or PreNatal vitamin, even if you aren't pregnant because the will help from the inside and truly speed up the process. The Prenatals are like horse pills, so if you aren't currently taking any form of vitamin a Flinstone or any multivitamin would help. If Nioxin is to expensive try any shampoo or conditioner that is minty and spend a little extra time rubbing it into your scalp. The massaging motion and mint stimulate the circulation in your scalp and encourage blood flow and hair growth. Also, make sure you get your hair trimmed every 8 weeks while it is damaged. This will ensure that it grows back healthy and quickly.

  39. QUESTION:
    Can someone recommend a good oil treatment for hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Pure Rosemary EO (essential oil) mixed with either Castor, Jojoba, or Sweet Almond Oil. You can also try Biotin mixed with these oils. Castor, Jojoba, and Almond oils are called "carrier oils" and help to stretch the EO and make it less stringent on the hair while providing a good coating.

      Oil doesn't make the hair grow, but it provides the ideal environment within your scalp for your hair to grow through. Oil helps to condition the scalp and keep it soft, supple, and ph balanced.

      Becareful! Oil should only be used with regular washing and conditioning as too much oil could dry your hair out or make it slick.

  46. QUESTION:
    What are the risks of getting laser treatment to stop hair growth?
    On my legs.

    • ANSWER:
      Temporary or permanent pigment changes (usually darkening) of the skin. This usually only happens if you go tanning, especially in a tanning bed or spray tanning. When you go outside, you should wear sunscreen to prevent it too. Other than that, I was not told of any risks, and the darkening of the skin is usually rare and usually if you tan (so you should be fine if you don't tan until a month after your last treatment. It is expensive, but it works well (on darker hairs). Blond hairs are usually untouched, which stinks. Most places usually have deals from time to time. Get a few quotes, and many places will price match, so you can get the best price and the best laser technician.

  47. QUESTION:
    is there a way to stop hair growth without the laser treatment?
    i grow hair everywhere and im only 16. its very embarressing. i wont even wear a bathing suit infront of my boyfriend for 8 months. its on my stomach and you can see some hair on my chest. if there is anything at all that can help this PLEASE let me know!

    • ANSWER:
      Well first of all, don't feel like your alone with this, because your definately not.
      I know exactly what your talking about.
      The first thing you could try is to stop shaving your stomach for a few weeks and see how it looks,
      The areas that don't look that bad stop shaving those,
      And just shave what you absolutely have to.
      Like under your belly button.
      That will make it easier to keep up with and not as stressful.
      Or you can stop shaving it for a while and then try bleaching it . Then it will be less noticeable.
      Just bleach it every month or two if it works for you.
      (same for chest)
      But don't feel like your a weirdo or anything because its actually very common, especially if your on the skinny side.
      And you also have to remember two that people aren't really going to be staring at your stomach you know? Like they're not going to have there face 5 inches from your body.
      So don't feel embarrassed and don't worry about your boyfriend bc if he really loves you he wouldn't have a problem with this at all.
      Trust me! (: hope this helped!

    http://eqyss-online.stores.yahoo.net/16ounmegreb.html

    thanks in advance!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hair growth products NEVER work.

      I'm sorry to break it to you. But there is no way to make the hair on your head grow any faster. I didn't click the link, but if it's a dietary supplement, I'd worry about how much it would accelerate the growth of other body hair and fingernails. If it's a topical product, I can assure you that nothing you put on your hair -- which is dead tissue, by the way, kind of like a fingernail -- is going to be strong enough to penetrate the scalp and actually stimulate the root in a way that would accelerate growth.

      Now for some good news:

      If a hairdresser gives you a disastrous cut and it is NOTHING like what you asked for, or if you feel like the hairdresser pressured you into or talked you into something you did not want, it is 100% okay to go back in and demand a refund. It's their job to make you feel like 100 bucks. If they don't, they are responsible for their performance and should be held accountable.

How To Get A Reliable Hair Growth Product
Finding a reliable hair growth product can be a challenge. This is especially when you do not know the right brand to go for. Some of the features that define good products include the chemical content, the side effects and the price of the particular product. To get a good product, you can use the following key features as your pointers.

The chemical content is an important feature to check on. Find out what the product has in terms of the chemical contents. In addition, get to know the percentages used and what they do in particular. You can research on this before heading to pick a particular brand.

You should also consider checking the side effects that the product brings. The different chemical components will always react differently with your skin. Find out to what extend the reaction can go and if the particular reaction is positive or negative.

In addition, find out how long the product is designed to take before positive features are seen. Generally, a good product will take the least time to give positive result. However, ensure that the results are permanent or have a long life span.

In addition, make sure that the product you are planning on getting is of high quality. High quality products will ensure that you get the right services in no time. Thus, make sure that you find out about its ratings in the market and what it has that makes it outstanding.

In addition, check on the standard marks placed on the product. See if it is recognized and approved as genuine product. One advantage of observing this is that you will be able to avoid using substandard products that may harm you in the future. The state will always come in handy in ensuring that you get the right product. In addition, you can use the help of the different consumer watch bodies around you.

The instructions provided can also be of much help. Find out what the manufacturers say of the product and how to use it. Reading the instructions will help you know how to use the product while at the same time it will help you know if it is the right product for you. Reading the instructions may need you to seek help in cases where you do not understand. If this is the case, make sure that you make inquiries before starting using the product.

Checking on the reviews a product has will help you in your selection process. Many brands attract reviews either positively or negatively. One area that you can get reliable news about the product is through the net review posts. These reviews allow any party to express themselves about the particular product. Thus, make sure that you carry out a good research to find out how well rated a particular brand is and what features make it be unique.

If you have a tight budget, then go for a fairly priced hair growth product. Many manufacturers have resulted to designing products that meet the budget line of the client. Thus, you can easily look for one that has a low price and make a step in getting the brand.

  1. QUESTION:
    Hair Growth Products Reviews 2?
    Hair Growth Formula Reviews?
    I REALLY, REALLY want long hair. Like, REALLY bad. So..i need help, what kind of hair growth stuff do i use? I don't want extentions, because my mom won't pay for them (it's only 0, though!!) so i need a hair growth formula. and DON'T tell me to wait and grow it out, because i can't wait that long. It doesn't have to be any kind of pill or vitamin, it can be a hair growth shampoo or conditoner. But, i don't want one that "promotes thicker hair" or "enables hair to grow thicker" or "protects from split ends" i want one that actually INCREASES GROWTH OF HAIR!!! as far as price..try and keep it under , but if there's one that works miracles that's over , then it's fine as long as it will ACTUALLY WORK!! And reviews would be great, or just links to forums or something recommending the product.

    Thanks bunches!!
    oh, and after i grow out my hair, i plan on getting a cut/trim and perm to make it look exactly like taylor swift's, just a little longer, seeing as i waited to grow it out and i want it to my elbows, and her's is only to her mid-chest....any ideas on what perm and products i need to get?

    (uhm, i asked this question a little while ago, but it expired and i still didn't have the answer, so..)

    thanks!
    and please, please don't tell me to wait it out, again, please!!!! i actually think i already mentioned that, but i don't care if the products don't work, because i have nothing to lose. and plus, i don't think they'd take the time to make hair growth products if they didn't do anything. so, yeah.
    here's a link to my goal:
    http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=327684305&albumID=283536&imageID=902336
    so far this is what i have:
    1. I switch off (every other day) between Mane & Tail Shampoo and Biotin Shampoo. You can get Mane & Tail at Sally's and Biotin Shampoo at GNC. Biotin is a vitamin that increases hair growth and is in most multivitamins. The reason i switch off is because i can't use both shampoo in one showering, seeing as this would weight down my hair and clog my hair folicules.
    2. Switch off between Volumax Conditioner(to add volume and thickness) and Biotin Conditioner. Again, you can the first ant Sally's and the second at GNC.
    3. I take One-A-Day Teen Advantage which is a multivitamin (avaible at Walmart) and Hair, Skin, And Nails (avaible at Walmart and GNC). Hair, Skin, And Nails is just like a prenatal pill (which is said my experts at Sally's to rapidly increase hair growth) but doesn't have all that extra iron, calcium, ect. that a pregnate woman would need. Again, this is just a multivitamin, but with a little more biotin inside.

    thanks so much!!!
    oh, and thank you to PRINCESS.BARBIE but i just hate hearing that nothing will make my hair grow out. i mean, my stylist said that she took multivitamins and they made her hair grow faster, so i don't know..and thanks so much to everyone else who's already answered.

    :D

    • ANSWER:
      PLEASE dont waste your money on stupid hair growth products, they DON'T work it's just another make money scheem rip off.
      Your hair on average should grown up to 1.25 cm a month, other that that you cant make your hair grow any faster.
      Also as for the perm, go to a hairdressers to have it done, you will have to put the perm rods in yourself otherwise and it's not easy.
      And just remember, a perm can take years to grow out and you might regret it.

  2. QUESTION:
    Hair loss products that work?
    I found a site called

    thegoods

    The site reviews hair loss treatment products. Have you used any of the hair growth products compared on this site. If so, which products worked well for you?

    • ANSWER:
      The site you found - http://thegoods.info/Natural_Hair_Loss_Treatments.html - seems like a great place for men and women experiencing hair loss to find hair loss products. Personally, I would go with one of the natural hair loss products on the site like hair genesis. I'd love to say one of the hair growth products worked miracles for me but I haven't used the site yet.

      According to the site, the hair loss treatments have a money back guarantee. As such, why don't you just try one of the products and return it if you're not happy with the results? Just a thought.

  3. QUESTION:

    so your help wud be gr8!!
    sorry bout all the links!!
    i already have hair extensions, so plz don't recommend them!!! thnx!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hun, I've tried everything and the only thing that works is drinking lots of water, taking multi-vitamins and loading up on omega 3-6-9.

      That's all you can do. My hair grew 9 inches in one year with this, and my hair usually takes a long time to grow.

      Trust me, don't buy into snake oil salesman.

      If you want to invest in any products, go for moisturizers or shampoos and conditioners that combat breakage. Also, try not to use a lot of heat on your hair. This WILL stunt the growth and cause damage and breakage.

      Good luck :)

  4. QUESTION:
    Dr. Miracles hair Growth products?
    Okay, so the last couple of days I have been researching about hair growth because I am interested in a dramatic growth for my hair. I went to the salon because I had a lot of split ends and the cut off about 6 inches, too short for me. I have been trying to grow my hair out for about 7 months now and it does not seem like it is growing at all. So yesterday I was online looking at hair products for "Dr. Miracle's damaged Medicated treatment," and "Dr. Miracle's Stimulating Moisturizing Gro Oil." Well I read the online reviews about it, and I was impressed with the reviews. One woman said withing about a 7 month period she had noticed that her hair grew about 9 inches. I was shocked by that, so I read on about the product and like out of 107 there was like maybe 10 people it didnt work for but the rest were seeing there results. Now I am hoping to grow my hair quickly so I went to Sally's yesterday and bought it, both of the ones I mentioned earlier. I shampoo my hair with TREsmee anti breakage because I have breakage. Well anyways, After i used the shampoo, I put the damaged Hair medicated treatment in my hair and let it set on my head for about 5-10 minutes. I experiences the tingle and cool feeling on my head, felt refreshing, does not smell good but that is a risk I am willing to take as long as it makes my hair grow. My hair was slightly greasy after wards, then I put on the GRO oil and my hair looked so greasy, even after blow drying, but I have to admit it is pretty soft.

    I am white as you can see to the side, I have straight hair already but its damaged and all that so i bought this because it treats everything.

    I am hoping that it works for me, all together it cost me about o bucks and when i came home with it my husband was mad that I spent money to grow my hair, but he is a man and doesnt understand my needs and wants as a woman. What man does.

    I have to admit I do feel a little stupid but I will feel more stupid if it doesn't work.

    has anyone used this hair products before? Do they now if it actually works on white people's hair.? How long will I start noticing result in my hair growth? Advice is good.

    Also, what I wanted to know is there any foods that I can eat to help give me all the vitamins I need for my body and to help the vitamins flowing for good hair growth?

    I am not healthy and I do not eat healthy, i am a fast food junkie, any advice will help. I am trying to get myself together and get healthy and have pretty long hair.

    Also a clear face. i just got on birthcontrol to prevent pregnancy and possible cyst on ovaries and my fast was pretty bad, so hopefully it will help but is there any type of remidies to do or things to use. I have tried the lemon on the face, didnt work, I have tried pro active, millions of brand facial produts and nothing is seeming to help.

    I feel like I have so much wrong with me that needs improvement..

    Advice and tips are always welcomed..
    I care about beauty and I want to be one that knows I am beautiful and feel it too.

    • ANSWER:
      I've never tried the miracle grow stuff but it its sold at sallys it must work ? Lol and as for your face use neutrogena acne stress control power wash( the one with the beads in it) and the toner too. I used to have light acne wen i was just washing my face but toner makes suuch a diff esp wen u see how much xtra dirt comes off even after u wash. For problem zits, use rapid clear i think thts by neutrogena too. Make sure you moisturize too with oil free lotion:)

  5. QUESTION:
    do lee staffords hair growth products actually work?
    I've noticed that lee stafford has brought out a hair growth range consisting of a shampoo, treatment and conditioner. As you may know lee stafford products are fairly expensive so i just wondered if they actually work.
    I'm not that gullible to believe that it'll make my hair suddenly grow really long. But the description of the products says that they "improve follicle health which in turn increases the ability of the hair to anchor to the scalp."
    two reviews have confirmed that their hair grew two inches in a month. I just want to make sure i'm not wasting my money.

    • ANSWER:
      The hair growth treatment conditioner is good, it smells nice and dramatically improves the condition of your hair, i dont know if it makes it grow faster, but it definitely makes the hair more healthier, so i guess it will make it grow fast. It is impossible to get hair to grow more than about 1-1/2 inch a month, most people can maximise their hair growth to about 3/4-1 inch a month.
      You can make your own conditioner that works- mix up an egg yolk and avocado and add in drops of olive oil, this does the same thing.
      You can try the Organic olive oil root stimulator, its a one-off treatment that works wonders- 92p in boots!
      As for the shampoo, it's not the best for what it claims. Try a low sulfate or sulfate free shampoo- such as organix or the tresemme low sulfate shampoo- these are more natural and will cause less damage.

  6. QUESTION:
    What are some products to use when transitioning from relaxed hair to natural?
    I am only 15 years old and trying to transition.
    My mom isn't completely supportive, but she just goes with it.
    I need some hair products that will help my hair growth.
    So, basically list the products you CURRENTLY use and give a brief review please. Don't leave ANYTHING out -- good & bad. Also, where you got the products from, how long have you been transitioning or been natural, and a picture of your hair styles would be interesting. :)

    • ANSWER:
      Congratulations on deciding to take the journey to go natural. I wanted to back in high school, but didn't take the plunge until my freshman year of college. Now, almost two years with natural hair, I absolutely love it and wish I would've gone natural when I first had the urge.
      Okay, now to talk hair products and transitioning. A website that I found very helpful during my transition was NaturallyCurly.com. It's a great resource and I continue to use it for more hair care tips as well as hair style ideas. They have an entire part of their site devoted to transitioning that you may want to check out: http://www.naturallycurly.com/topics/view/transitioning
      As for products, I have used a variety of different products such as Creme of Nature that can be found at Wal Mart to Pantene Pro-V, Twisted Sista, and Mizani's new natural hair line. There's a few others that I've used as well, but I would say that Creme of Nature would be the best to use right now since it's pretty accessible. I hope this helps!

  10. QUESTION:
    Help with hair products?
    I'm having problems deciding between two hair products that are supposed to promote hair growth. I need to decide between " Dr. Miracle" or "Wild Growth Oil" products. I have read the reviews for both products and I'm still having trouble deciding. I am going to the beauty supply store and I need to choose which product works best. Can someone who has used these products or knows someone who has used them give me some advice?
    Oh by the way. These are African-American hair products.

    • ANSWER:
      I believe the Dr. Miracle products are a better choice of the two because the wild growth oil is based of on a synthetic compound that can cause breakage.

      I will say however, that I would not suggest those products.
      Mizani makes good products for people of color as done Nexis.

      For moisturizing, I use plain old pink moisturizer - ( you know the one)

    can you tell me the name of the product you and your friend are using, hilary? is it from the drugstore? I would really like it know. also thanks for your help

    • ANSWER:
      I'm taking Prenatal's to help my hair grow out. My friend has short hair and she's taking prenatals too, and she swears up and down that by the end of the summer her hair will be down to her butt lol. Now I'm pretty sure that is an exaggeration, but im experimenting to see how fast my hair grows. Also i was at my work once, when a pretty pregnant woman with long long hair walked in, I asked her how long it took for her to grow her hair, and she told me a short amount of time, i asked her how she did it, and she swears up and down on prenatals too.

      Hope this works for you

  13. QUESTION:
    Which Mane N' tail hair product is best for hair growth?
    I want to grow my hair out, but I'm not a very patient person. I've heard a lot of good things about the Mane N' Tail shampoo and conditioning products. So I'm going to buy them and try them for myself.
    But they have 3 different kinds of Mane N' Tail products
    which would be best to get faster hair growth?

    Mane N' Tail Regular

    Mane N' Tail Dandruff
    or
    Mane N' Tail Herbal Essential

    also any reviews you have on these products would be great! Thanks =)
    oh, there is also deep moisturizing Mane N' Tail

    • ANSWER:
      I started using Mane N Tail for my hair a while ago to grow it faster, I've been using Mane N' Tail Herbal Essential and massaging my head with coconut oil every night for about 10 minutes, and it has been making my hair grow faster! I mean, it's not growing like 2 inches in a night (sadly) , but it is growing faster then normal.

      Also, if you want to make your hair grow faster, you should try not eating sugars, soda, etc. as much, and eat proper meals. You don't have to do this, but it will help A LOT along with the shampoo and massaging.

    • ANSWER:
      Not sure about F.A.S.T. but I have had good results with GNC Womens Mega Multi-Vitamins and Biotin supplements

  16. QUESTION:
    Permanently stop hair growth?
    Hello all,

    I'm curious about something. Is there a way to stop all hair growth permanently from the inside out? I'm really sick and tired of shaving. The amount of time and effort plus the cost of razor blades has me fed up. The thing is I hate hair so stopping isn't an option. I hate shaving a ton but I hate hair 2 tons. I just pick the lesser of two evils.

    I've been doing research and it seems like everyone and their brother seems to has some kind of lotion or cream to stop hair growth. When checking out reviews of said products, the effectiveness seems to be questionable.

    I said to myself, what about something you can consume orally to eliminate hair growth? I figure I would probably have better luck stopping this activity internally as I want to focus on whole body removal.

    I know that an increase of DHT is what causes hair loss in men. Is there anyway simple way to increase my DHT production? What are the downsides of increased DHT production?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Shampoo/Conditioner for Hair Growth?
    Before any of you comment, I understand there are no products that make your hair grow...I'm just asking for products that make your hair healthier and stronger, to promote faster hair growth!
    I was recommended Mane N Tail Shampoo/Conditioner, but recently read some reviews that said it causes a lot of hair loss and makes your hair feel REALLY dry...both of which I don't need, because I experience both dry hair and crazy hair loss.
    I don't use products or heating tools, so I don't understand why my hair absolutely SUCKS, but it does!
    Product recommendations/tips are needed! Please explain why your recommended hair product would be good for me...thank you!!

    hair growth question?(healthy hair)?
    my hair used to be really long, but then i got a few bad haircuts..now its short. i know that you can't make your hair grow faster in anyway, but is there any tricks to promote it? what hair products (like shampoo, conditioner, etc.) would help my hair become shiny, healthy, and stronger? i need actual reviews from people who have actually tried the product they are suggesting to me, and i need products that aren't too expensive. my hair is really, really dry. i straighten and bleach it, but i won't stop doing either of those, so please don't tell me to stop. thanks for any helpful answers! any masks or something would help too, or just any tricks to promote healthy hair!

    • ANSWER:
      My hair was over dyed and had SO many horrible split ends. my hair is now growing nice and long quite fast :)
      I would suggest doing what I did:

      1. I used hair masks (nivea visage has an amazing one!) so that is definitely a product to invest more money in. and leave the mask in for at least 10 minutes.

      2. My shampoos and conditioners are all repair and strengthening! I put a few drops of tee tree oil in both as well :)

      3. use strengthen and repairing leave in conditioners.

      4. cut off split ends it makes your hair look that much healthier

      5. try and prevent yourself from using heat on your hair (i.e: straights, blowdryers, curling irons)

      6. drink lots of water and try this pill out, its all natural and it made my hair nice and shiny and grow too! Its called herpanacine. you can get it in any drugstore like shoppers

      Then ( last year around december)

I have heard reviews for all these products but i want to know which one works the best. Please help and shair any other secrets that might help my hair grow in a month or so. PLEASE HELLPPP i hhate my short hair

    • ANSWER:
      The best hair growth oil is actually one that has a variety of herbs proven to work to grow hair. You need to know what herbs are used, in what concentrations are used and in my opinion I like Mira hair oil because it has high concentration so of hair growth herbs like hibiscus and eclipta alba. It also has them in the right quantities and proportions. When it comes to hair oils make sure that only the best herbs are used, you do not want to use cheap products because they use very little amounts of hair growth herbs. You do get what you pay for. I love Mira for that reason here are the ingredients in Mira, henna, eclipta Alba, hibiscus, coconut oil and aloe vera. If you do a search on pubmd you will see that these herbs actually have been shown to help hair growth
      Mira hair oil is the one oil has all the herbs to help hair growth and stop hair loss at the same time

    • ANSWER:
      I have a masters degree in biochemistry. I can tell you that any topical preparation or vitamin that advertises improved hair growth is worthless and a scam! Contrary to what other people have said, as yet, there is nothing on Earth that you can swallow or slather on that will change how fast your hair grows. Average growth varies throughout the life span and even with the seasons, but 1/4 to 1/2 inch is average for adults. Minoxidil and other topical preparations don't work by making hair grow faster either. Hair grows not because we eat a particular thing but because cells divide. Eating amino acids is pointless because excess amino acids will be excreted or stored as fat. Eating 'biotin' will only have an effect if you have a severe and very rare disease of biotin deficiency and even this claim has not been substantiated. There have been no peer-reviewed studies to confirm that eating vitamins will increase the rates of cell division in the follicles of your hair. And if this did happen, you would also get giant eyebrows and bushy armpits and a moustache, as the body wouldn't selectively send these molecules to your scalp. How would the carrier proteins in your blood know what you have in mind? They aren't that clever.

      How fast your hair grows is governed solely by your DNA, your age and your overall health. You can slow the growth of hair or stop it with things like chemotherapy, but you can't speed it up beyond the rate that is normal for you. There is no fast forward command for hair growth. Sorry. The others who claim there is a way have only anecdotal evidence that is contradicted by the weight of thousands of clinical trials over decades. Unless of course, they want your money.

      Eating a healthy diet will maintain a normal tensile strength of your hair which can prevent breakage, and being careful to treat your hair gently can keep it shiney and lovely, but anybody who tries to sell you vitamins to make your hair grow violates US FDA safety and packaging laws and these so-called vitamins should be quarantined and destroyed. If you are foolish enough to buy this snake oil, the only thing that will grow fast is the bank accounts of the slime balls who sell this trash. Eat a normal diet, don't overuse heat and chemicals on your hair, keep your hair clean without stripping its natural protective oils, protect your tresses from too much exposure to wind and sun, keep a good haircut and style that suit you, and most of all, learn to love yourself the way God, and your DNA, intended you to be!!!

  23. QUESTION:
    Is it safe to use 2 hair vitamin products at the same time?
    I heard really good things about this certain hair growing vitamin: Simply Hair Growth

    [link]

    http://www.blackhairvitamins.net/

    but itried searching on youtube for users who had good results on it. NONE popped up..

    But I found out about another hair vitamin product:

    [link]

    http://www.hairfinity.com/

    As you can see for the HairFinity, there are sooooo many pictures and amazing reviews..

    Even on youtube there are people documenting their hair journeys with the product.

    The problem is that ihad went ahead and ordered the the first product an hour ago. But seeing all the happy long haired people with their hairfinity.. iwanna use that instead.

    So can ijust take both pills at the same time without any bad side effects??

    They both claim to be all natural, which was key for me..

      Well, make sure you don't over dose on anything like vitamin C or anything. Other than that you should be fine.

I've spent hours reading through reviews for Mira oil and definately want to try it. I'm desperate for long hair- my hair is way too short and I don't want to wear extensions.The only problem is the price of it- does anyone know where I can buy Mira Hair Oil for a LOT less cheaper than around £50/£40?! I just cannot afford that just for some oil. If not, is there any other oil or hair product that you have used that has made a noticable difference to hair growth?

      my friends told me to braid my hair and it helps a little because your kinda pulling on the roots of your hair which makes it grow just a LITTLE faster.

      another thing was stress, if you reduce your stress lvl it's suppose to help grow faster! :]

      If you massage your scalp it's suppose to help also? but i never tried that but you could try! i hope this helped you out a little! :]

    Umm well I'm 13 and my hair is at my shoulders I'm African American and I want to grow my hair out to be just above chest and good products to recommend and any reviews on any products would be helpful thanks
    Oh and my hair is relaxed

    • ANSWER:
      first: drink more water

      shampoo/conditioners:

      Creme Of Nature detangling conditioning shampoo
      Aussie Moist conditioner
      or anything that is sulfate free or moisturizing

      vitamins: choose only 2 of these and take one of them each a day (choose ONLY 2 of these vitamins)

      biotin start out with 1000 mcg
      teen multivitamins
      hair skin & nails vitamins
      vitamin e
      vitamin b complex

      optional hair regimine:

      -get rid of split ends. your hair will grow in evenly if you get rid of the split ends. plus it will look much healthier and grow alot easier.

      -wash hair once or twice a week with a moisturizing conditioner or Creme of Nature detangling shampoo/conditioner. trust me on this one. no one wants a dirty scalp and expect it to grow.

      -try to deep condition your your hair at least every 3 or 4 weeks

      -try to only flat iron you hair once or twice a month. if you can't do that,try at least once or twice every two weeks.

      -TRY TRY TRY please try to keep the ends of your hair off your clothes. you will retain length AND moisture and reduce breakage. try a donut bun,french braids or conrows (but not to tight). anything that will hide or keep the ends of your hair off your clothes.

      try a good moisturizer for your roots and ends:

      -try olive oil hair creme

      and wear a silk or satin scarf before going to bed. this will keep it shiny and moisturized =)

      oh and last but not least:

      -TRY to stretch your relaxers. basically,try to go at least 2 months or more without relaxing your hair. i know you're probably think it's hard but your hair will grow faster without the chemicals for awhile and your hair will thankyou for it. i stretch my relaxers every 3-4 months a year and i gain 3-4 inches while doing this. i wear buns while doing this.

      if you can TRY to follow or keep up with this regimine,your hair will grow longer in no time. i KNOW because it took me 9 months to go from shoulder length to the middle of my back.

      hope i helped

    Has anyone ever used the product NARA hair oil?
    Does it work? Is it worth the money? Besides the Web Site, is there anywhere else I can buy it? From the few reviews I found online, it sounds like it is a very successful product when it comes to hair growth. I just don't know how credible these Sites are. Can anyone personally vouch for this product? Thanks for your help, the more information the better!

      I ordered the product and have used it. It has not grown my hair 2 inches in two months. However, I am delighted with the way my hair looks and feels. I ordered mostly for the claim of hair growth, and believe that it might help more on the second bottle. It takes a long time to receive it as well, so don't get anxious when you find three weeks have passed with no delivery. I am very willing to try a few more bottles before giving up on it.

    • ANSWER:
      well if your hair is breaking, you should not be using any kind of growth lotion...especially for ethnic hair if you are not ethnic. what you want to do, is prevent further breakage. you need a protein treatment done to your hair. my suggestion is that you go to a salon and get one- if not, go to cvs and pick up some protein or cholesterol or some kind of deep conditioning treatment along with a shower cap and follow the directions it gives you. i'd also buy special shampoo for damaged hair....other shampoos are much too harsh for hair in that condition and may cause even further breakage. make sure you only shampoo your hair like twice a week or as little as possible before it gets noticeably dirty. good luck.

    • ANSWER:
      I don't know about that stuff, because until I clicked the link I'd never heard of it. But, I know of a vitamin by Nioxin (a line of hair care products that promotes growth) and many people say it works well for your hair and nails. My mom has been a hairstylist for over 10 years and suggests it to her customers all the time. It isn't a miracle cure, but it just gives your body the proper vitamins to promote healthy growth of longer and thicker hair.

      I know the site says it's for "thinning hair", but many people use it just to promote growth, so don't let that bother you.

  36. QUESTION:
    I have a question about hair growth. Does Mira hair oil work also?
    Ok, well I used to not eat hardly anything for about 5 months. But for two months I have been eating really good 3 meals a day, and lots of other stuff. But, I used to have pretty thick hair. I've lost quite a bit of it. it's not like super thin, but it makes me upset, even cry a few times. I have to be sooo careful in order for it to not fall out a lot. I can't scrub my head very hard in the shower or accidentally pull on it. I don't put it in a pony tail and I have to sleep on it a certain way so it doesn't pull out! Its so hard to be this careful! I take vitamins and eat protein every day. And my mom also says eating jello will help it, so I will do that. Anyways, I want it to stop falliong out soooo much! I want my thick hair back and I want to stop being upset over it! When i brush it if its wet ( ik you're not supposed to, but I have to.) My doctor told me to get plenty of iron every day and take vitamins and eat fruits and veggies and I should see a difference in about two months or so. Also she said that I will notice my hair getting thicker over the course of the year. I'm 13 btw. Ok so, I have some vitamins that a lot of people have reccomended. Which ones should I take? Iron supplements, Prenatal, Biotin, and Hair and skin. So which ones should I take, or can I take them all the time ore is that dangerous? If these will not work, tell me what will! ALso, I found mira hair oil. I have read many reviews all over saying it works, but I just don't know. I can't tell if they have made people go out and answer yahoo questions and write these articles and make youtube vids where the comments are disabled! Please tell me if this will stop the hair loss! Also, I have been really badly wanting to grow my hair out to the end of my shoulder bones. Now it is too my collar bones. Will it work to make my hair grow faster? Thansk guys, and I want people with experience with these products!

    • ANSWER:
      It does work. Mira hair oil works if you use it consistently. What Mira hair oil is nothing new. It is ayurveda and that is an Indian medicinal formula. Use din India a long time ago to encourage hair regrowth
      It's what I use to grow healthy hair. It’s a herbal oil that helps hair grow...seriously try it you will be surprised. Now you won't grow like 6 inches of hair in a week or something crazy like that but I have found that my hair grew a lot faster than normal when I used Mira hair oil. Plus I got so many little new baby hairs in places I had when I lost hair Mira hair oil makes your hair grow thicker and shiny too....hope this helps you. I have used many hair products like Mira but seriously it is the purest and best (and most expensive) try it it’s just a natural hair oil
      No matter what your hair issue is you will want to keep your hair healthy
      Use a prenatal pill-these will help hair growth
      Use saw palmetto
      Take some biotin
      You will want to eat lots of fruits and vegetables
      You must bare in mind that you will achieve healthy and therefore faster hair growth only if you are healthy.

      Are you relaxed or natural? That makes all the difference. I only use leave-in conditioners in my hair and that's what I use for moisture. Shea butter moisturizers, as does cocoa butter. I'm talking about the raw ingredients and not a product that includes these as an ingredient.

I did a little research and i game across mira oil, a saw so many good reviews from people and i've watched youtube reviews and people say it works! I dont know if thats a scam for them to take your money. But it is 79.99 and that is whats kind of making me think well does this work ... is it fake? If someone can guarantee to me that in the next 2-3 months i will see results amazingly then sure i'll maybe go for it. I am on a budget but hey i am also desperate to grow it out so i will save up and get it! Now i am not african american or anything so how would i use this product, before every shower i put it on all my hair or my roots? PLEASE GO IN DETAIL WITH EVERYTHING. Thanks! I really need my confidence back because im only a 16 year old girl who goes to highschool and you can know how hard highschool years are with people teasing and all that stuff.

    • ANSWER:
      Mira hair oil is not fake. The Original formula originates from India from Ayurveda. Mira hair oil works but I don’t think it is for you as you can’t afford it. I have personally used it and my hair did grow longer. The speed I have to say is different for everyone. I grew an inch and a half in 6 weeks which is not bad considering that I usually grow half an inch a month. It might or might not work for you. Everyone is different. As to whether it is real. It is. I bought it and tried it and it works and the company does deliver. Mira hair oil has coconut oil as its base and a few herbs like hibiscus, henna, Eclipta Alba and Aloe Vera. What makes Mira exceptional is that they use lots of the herbs and also it is made in Canada and in the US so that alone ensures that only quality ingredients are used. Mira hair oil will stop hair loss, grow hair, stop frizz, stops aging hair and makes hair soft and silky!
      If you can’t afford it simply take care of your hair. Stop using commercial hair products, give yourself a deep hair treatment, do not use heat on your hair and eat right. You will also want to exercise and do not stress your hair. It will grow healthy. Get it from the official site

  41. QUESTION:
    How is Phytoaxil for hair thinning?
    My hair stylist recommended this to me : http://www.amazon.com/PHYTO-Phytoaxil-Fortifying-Intensive-Thinning/dp/B000Z63OD4.

    It promises hair growth for thinning hair and supposedly uses ingredients from botanical extracts. However, there are hardly any reviews of this product on the internet. Any one with success stories after using this product ?

  42. QUESTION:
    does Doo Gro Stimulating Growth Oil really grow hair faster?
    I want my hair to grow faster, it has always grown REALLY SLOWLY , I've heard and read some FAB reviews on this product. i wondered if it was true or utter tripe. TY!!

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I'd
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don't forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

  43. QUESTION:
    Can iuse both products?
    Can itake both pill products? -they claim to be ALL natural..

    -I heard really good things about this certain hair growing vitamin: Simply Hair Growth

    [link]

    http://www.blackhairvitamins.net/

    But I then found out about another hair vitamin product:

    [link]

    http://www.hairfinity.com/

    As you can see for the HairFinity, there are sooooo many pictures and amazing reviews.. Even on youtube there are people documenting their hair journeys with the product.

    The problem is that ihad went ahead and ordered the the first product an hour ago. But seeing all the happy long haired people with their hairfinity.. iwanna use that instead.

    So can ijust take both pills at the same time without any bad side effects??

    • ANSWER:
      No. In fact taking too many vitamins can cause hair loss, this is due to blood poisoning. Some "all natural" vitamins and supplements have been found to carry mercury and lead and other harmful "natural" poisons. I'd say take one biotin pill and a multi-vitamin daily that has a stamp of approval on it. I take a B complex, biotin, and Flintstones with Iron everyday or every other day.
      If you are going to take vitamins you should research the precautions and overdose information first.

  44. QUESTION:
    castor oil for hair growth...?
    so i've been looking in to using castor oil to help my hair grow. it seems to have gotten a lot of good reviews. i have one question though
    1. does it matter if it's pure castor oil or other helpful ingredients?
    http://www.cvs.com/CVSApp/catalog/shop_product_detail.jsp?filterBy=&skuId=668269&productId=668269&navAction=jump&navCount=3#prodIngdCont

    http://www.riteaidonlinestore.com/heritage-store-castor-oil/qxp319530?fromsrch=castor+oil

    the first one has castor oil but there's a lot of other ingredients in it that are reallllly good for your hair. it seems like a better buy because there's so much more helpful stuff in it. and in the second link there's JUST castor oil
    does it matter which one i get?
    which would you recommend?

    oh also, if you've used castor oil in your hair, did you find that it helped your hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many hair oil brand out there, none is better than the other. It can very well even harm your hair, even causes hair loss, since you don't know exactly what kind of oil they say it is. In the lab, they add other ingredients that can prevent from spoiling.

      Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark."

      It does NOT make hair grow, it does not make hair thicker, it does help keep the hair moisturized, that's about all it does. Anything else they say on the label, it is to attract your attention. It is a billion dollar business and they do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to 'abuse'.
      The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of Maharashtra is ready to go on record saying that most manufacturers in the Rs 3,000-crore Indian cosmetics industry are rampantly misleading consumers with tall claims. This affliction goes beyond hair oils. FDA has found that from face creams to soaps and other items of personal care, cosmetics companies are taking the general public for a ride. The industry, of course, sees the whole issue differently.

      Go to cosmeticsinfo.org or the FDA website for more into.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark."
      http://scienceblogs.com/effectmeasure/2010/03/fish_oil_or_snake_oil.php
      The FDA don't even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here's an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

      Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80's & 90's. I've known people in their 30's whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70's. When I was in HS, my hair grew from bob to waist length in 3 1/2 to 4 years, and cut 2x a year.

  45. QUESTION:
    Testing allergic reaction?
    So theres this hair product really good in promoting hair growth but it has sulfur in it and some people who reviewed the product warned to be careful if your allergic to sulfur because it could result in hair loss, so I don"t want to buy the product and later find out In allergic is their any strong sulfur products, foods or anything that I could test my self with to see if I'm allergic?

    Just A Note: I"m note really allergic to anything but Aspirin

    & Ive heard sulfur is really common in acne products, Ive had no problems with any acne products except for when I was going through puberty and had bad acne so I tried clean & clear which turned my chin red and mad it swell with bumps & a rash, but other products like neutrogena & proactive I've had no problem with.

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe do a test of eating foods that contain sulphur. If you have a problem eating a lot of these veggies then maybe that's an indication of an underlying sulphur allergy. The same goes if you crave any of them (cravings mask an allergy).

      Foods That Contain Sulphur

      * Asparagus
      * Avocado
      * Blueberries
      * Broccoli

Long African Hair

Celebrity Tips for Long African American Hair
KeraCare produces quality products for African American hair, especially if you have an itchy scalp from braids or hair weaves. However, their shampoos and conditioners tend to sometimes leave black hair dry and brittle, unless it is there detangling shampoo. As a result, although their products will help your scalp, they will leave your hair looking like you did it yourself. If you have a relaxer or chemically treated hair, and are use to using products like Elasta QP, Motions, or TCB, then it is long over due to make the switch to all natural hair care products.

Just because you buy natural hair care products does not mean you have to cut your hair and grow a mini afro or get dreads. You don't need natural hair! There are several benefits of using all-natural hair care products, especially if you have relaxed hair. One of the best all-natural products on the market is Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth System for Ethnic Hair. The shampoo and conditioner in the system are loaded with vitamins and natural oils that will not leave your hair dry like KeraCare, but instead will hydrate your follicles and nourish your roots. You can even use products like GodHead Max Moisture and Gro System to lengthen your hair and extend times between getting relaxers. You can find their products at wwwdiscoverb4acom
Here are the top five Hair Care Tips for Black Hair according to Hollywood's Celebrity Stylist Michelle Vincent.
Hollywood Stylist Tip# 1 for Black Hair: Stop using low grade hair care products that contain sulfates: Even if you get a perm or wear weaves, your hair needs the most nutrients that it can receive between salon visits.

Hollywood Stylist Tip# 2 for Black Hair: Buy all natural hair care products, most natural stores carry Jason's or Aubrey Organics Shampoos or you can by Beauty 4 Ashes online.

Hollywood Stylist Tip# 3 for Black Hair: Take care of your hair from home. You can do it! Wrap or roll your hair before bed. Don't just sleep on it without a protective covering, which can lead to split ends and result in YOU getting your hair CUT.

Hollywood Stylist Tip# 4 for Black Hair: Drink plenty of water and reduce your intake of junk foods. Take a B Complex on a daily basis.

Hollywood Stylist Tip# 5 for Black Hair: Buy Silk pillow cases and hair wraps. Avoid cotton, it can lead to hair breakage.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How to make my african hair grow long (male)?
    I'm a 15yo African/Irish male and I would like to grow my short hair into long hair kinda like most (Caucasian) people. I want my hair to be able to cover my forhead mostly and my ears instead of it sticking up. Any advice?

    P.s. My hair is not exactly like african male hair thats really short with BBs' its really wavey and short.
    BBs are when the hair is split into little balls (you mostly see em in the morning when you wake up)

    • ANSWER:
      Oh, my. Sorry, but African and Irish? That is too precious! I can say that, I'm Irish, and I can't imagine what you are going through taming your hair!

      Hair grows no matter what your nationality or skin color. It seems what you are trying to do is tame your hair to grow into a certain cut or style.

      You don't mention whether you have thick, thin, straight, curly, or kinky hair, that all makes a difference in what you can really achieve with your hair.

      Your hair is always growing. The question you need to ask is where to find a trained beutician who can cut and tame your hair into the look you want it to grow into. I suggest spending the money for a one time consult and cut with style at a great salon. Ask questions, learn everything you need to in regards to how to style your hair, what is necessary (versus fluff not necessary) to style your hair how you want it, etc.

      Extremely wavy hair, especially if it's thick, can be unruly to tame. A good salon will be able to consult with you based on your hair type, your own unique style, and what will look best that you can acheive. If you have the Irish curl/wave, and the African roots to boot... you should definately seek at least a one time service of a high paid salon to help you understand your hair growth, and what you can do with it, and how.

  2. QUESTION:
    why doesnt african hair grow really long?
    ive observed that most african women cant grow their hair really long? how come? its not coz of the colour of their skin coz black american women have really long hair. only very few african women have long hair, is it just me or has anyone else observed this?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,
      African woman do have long hair. They have natural hair. Most African American women put chemicals and weave, extensions, relaxers and colors in OUR hair. Obviously you haven't seen many Africans. Most African woman, if you see them with short hair, trust me, it's more than likely it's because short hair is their choice of style. Africans, straight from Africa do my hair in Wisconsin. None of them have short hair, neither do they wear weave. The Africans that you see with short hair, that you think is so short, If they put a relaxer (perm) in their hair, you would be amazed at how long their short, tight, curly hair would straighten out to be. Africans are much more natural than us African Americans. Most black hair shops are owned by Africans.

  3. QUESTION:
    To All African American Women with Thick Long Full hair ATTENTION?
    To all the women who have thick full long african american hair how did you get your hair like that and what products do you use. How do you wash your hair. After you wash it does it come out the same way as before you washed it. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Genetics and also try to use styles and products that would cause less breakage and damage to the hair. Comb in sections and start from the ends towards the root so that the tangles and knots don't break as much. Use moist and deep conditioner. Don't shampoo the hair too often or it will get dry. Use less chemicals (not no chemicals at all but not as harsh chemicals). Let the hair rest sometimes. Put it in cornrows or plaits. Hydrate the hair with jojoba and coconut oils.

  4. QUESTION:
    How to grow long African American hair?
    Okay ladies with ethnic hair... How to you grow your hair long and healthy? What do you do to your hair after you wash it? (brands please) and how do you style it to keep it straight besides chemical relaxers? And how do you keep your ends moisturized?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, lemme first say that my hair is natural.. But, I think this will work for any type of African American hair. My mom is the one who knows most of the ways to grow it out.. But, she uses me as a guinea pig lol, so I know a bit.

      First, you should eat right. For example, a big mac isn't going to do a lot of good to someone's hair lol. (not saying you would eat something like that lol) :) I ate apples and almond butter for two weeks straight and my hair grew like weeds. Haha! You should eat natural and organic foods, lots of fruits and veggies.. Yeah..

      Now.. Black hair needs oils! I really don't know all of them, but this girl names some good ones (shimahair.com).. Coconut oil, sesame seed oil, peppermint oil i think... Yeah.. haha.

      And my hair.. I have it in braids, and they protect the ends (important to growth!) and keep it safe and growing! My mama feeds me and gives me the oils to put in my hair, lol... Umm.. after it's washed, it gets oiled and put back into braids.. I don't really straighten it, because I did once (flat iron with wax and/or vaseline), and it was okay, but the heat did not do it well... That is all I will say about that.. haha.

      Sorry, if my answer wasn't clear enough! Hope I helped even a little bit! =]

  10. QUESTION:
    My boyfriend wants me to braid his hair,,(long African hair) do i start at the forehead or nape?

    • ANSWER:
      hmmm..well that depends.

      if you are talking about cornrowing, i would definitely say the forehead.

      if you are referring to individual braids (sometimes referred to as "individuals" or "box braids") that are not braided close to the scalp, i would definitely say nape. Starting at the base and/or nape of the head will give you an even and neat look. Starting at the forehead will cause your parts, spacing, and neatness to be off and won't give the clean look you are likely going for.

      hope this helps.

    • ANSWER:
      Is your hair natural? (Not chemically altered, colored, texturized etc) If not, you can go to the EXACT same sites that African American women would go to who have natural hair and are trying to grow it out.
      a couple: www.naani.com, http://nappyme.wordpress.com, Nappturality.com....
      There are a million and one sites out their.... just most of them "cater" to women. What they don't tell you is that when your hair is natural, African American women AND men hair is all the same!

    how to get LONG and natural african american hair?
    i have yet to see a fully african american girl (or guy) with hair past their shoulders not even the ones who stay natural (that includes me) and especially never the ones w/perms and its not fair to see 5,6, and 7 year olds who are white (sorry it sounds racist i dont mean to) walk around with hair longer than mine and im 14 now :( ...if a black person has long hair they're mixed (half white)

    so how can fully black person get long hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey i'm 15 and was wondering the same thing. But my friend who I meet has hair super long (to her hips ) and she is fully african american. Try drinking a lot of water, and eating vitamins. Also try Leave-in Conditioner, and try to limit the amount of times you wash your hair. I have a little pasted my shoulder hair that is super curly, but i'm mixed (black&mexican).

      P.S Try DuGro(or something like that), It may cost a little more than the usual moisturizer but its amazing!

    • ANSWER:
      Since you are transitioning and you also want to grow your hair long, protective styles and styles that require low manipulation are your best bet. It sounds like you already have a good routine or regimen going on with how often you wash your hair and deep condition it. Two great resources you may want to look into using are NaturallyCurly.com and CurlyNikki.com. I've used them from the moment I started transitioning to now when I am nearly two years into my natural journey, I've used both sites and they're great. I've given you the links to both websites' transition sections. I hope this helps!

    How long will african american hair last if straightened in a salon?
    I have a lot of hair; it's shoulder length, coarse, african-american hair. I'm planning on getting it relaxed and straightened at a salon. I was wondering, since I haven't had my hair done in a salon since I was 7-8, how long it will last?

    Thanks:)

    • ANSWER:
      to figure out how to pick a perm first of all, ur supposed to take a strand of ur hair from your head. if it has a z pattern, use a perm for course hair and if its a s pattern, use a perm for medium hair. but other then that, usually perms last 2-3 months. i personally suggest try to perm your hair after about 4 months and ONLY PERM THE NEW GROWTH. if you perm hair thats already been permed it wont be good, its overprocessing and it WILL break off your hair. you want to keep the ends cliped only if theyre split though. and if your hair is shoulder length, to get it to grow after the perm ur supposed to wear it up in ponytails b.c. if its shoulder length it will brush up against your clothing causing it to break off. i know. ive been there. hope this help! good luck girl!! hope u like your new hair! lol

  17. QUESTION:
    I have long african american hair that is very thick will a texturizer make my hair curly and pretty?
    my hair is long,thick and poofy i am not mixed at all i want my hair to be curly and not poofy will a texturizer make it curly and pretty like a when a mexican gurl scruches there hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Try some regular products first BEFORE (just correcting type) you use a chemical relaxer on your hair. - A texturizer is nothing more than a mild relaxer.

      I use this brush called the Denman and it takes all the volume out of my hair. It sucks since I cut my hair and it's pretty short and the volume makes a difference. Also, try different hair products because the ones you're using doesn't give you the effect you want. I have super curly hair, too, and I haven't dealt with frizz in years. But, it's because of the products I use on my hair. Different products are better at keeping frizz to a minimum. It's not going to change your hair type to something else (mexican's) but it'll make your own beautiful curls come through.

      Ah, how your hair will look after a texturizer, no one knows. You'll just have to try it and see. Worse case, it'll permanently straighten your hair if you leave it in too long (it is a relaxer after all); this has happened to a few girls who have used texturizers. It can do anything from loosen your curl pattern just a little bit to give you waves to straighten your hair. It really depends on how long you leave it in your hair.

      It's a matter of opinion about what is "curly and pretty."

    • ANSWER:
      I'd like to start by saying, I have African-American hair and I just became natural [I don't use realxers anymore]. Our hair is a lot more simple than a lot of people think it is we need 2 basic things: Protective Styling (Braids, kinky twists etc...) & Moisture. I've gone years without knowing the right way to moisturize my own hair, I learned this on youtube though; you need a water based moisturizer (yes this can just be water), a cream based moisturizer, and an oil based moisturizer<--put these on in that order. Now I'm not bashing relaxed women, but relaxers sure as hell don't help your hair grow! Doesn't mean you have to go natural ( but you might actually like it and its really not that hard to handle, I LOVE my hair), but you may want to consider stretching out your relaxers just so you can get nre growth (if your relaxed, that is) or just get one relaxer and when your get new growth use the hot comb. I would suggest starting fresh too, get a nice even hair cut & have a plan, try to use products with more natural ingridients: beware of sulfates&mineral oil.

      Hope I helped(:

  19. QUESTION:
    How can I make short dry african hair grow like I am a long blonde?
    I really need long hair WITHOUT weeves,conditioners,and shampoos.And please don't put that you DON"T know.If you don't know,than please at least ask somebody.

    • ANSWER:
      You can't change your natural hair texture without a relaxer or curly perm which are damaging chemical process. If you want to keep it natural, I suggest minimizing your use of heat (flat irons, curling irons, etc) moisturizing more, rinsing your hair often (water is the best moisturizer), wearing your hair up more often, not using gels with alcohol, and shampooing less often (shampoo is drying, rinsing and conditioning your hair is sufficient. I shampoo once a week and rinse daily.). If you decide to chemically alter your hair, I would suggest the same techniques. Your hair might not grow as fast as your blond friends, but it will grow much faster and be healthier if you take better care of it.

  20. QUESTION:
    How Can You Grow Long African American Hair Without Braids/Weave/Extensions?
    What techniques can you use with oils, shampoos and conditioners, even moisturizers? And how fast would it grow? My hair is a little past shoulder length. And how many days is it good to flat iron and wear down a week?

    • ANSWER:
      To grow black healthy hair, you must first have to know how to take care of it. My advice is that you should wash your hair weekly, apply a reconstructor and deep condition your hair weekly. It is also very important to moisturize and seal your hair will an oil daily. Don't use too much of moisturizer and sealant because that can way down hair. I flat iron my hair only once a week, so I think either once or twice a week is okay. Just make sure when you do use heat to your hair to apply a heat protectant to hair before flat ironing. Hope this helps. For more hair tips, check out my hair blog specifically for black women on hair growth. http://blackhaircommunity.blogspot.com/

  21. QUESTION:
    How do you grow long african american hair in just a few months?
    the product that i am using now is carol's daughter lisa's hair elixer

    • ANSWER:
      *Vitamin- Biotin, Chlorella, Vitamin E

      *Exercise Daily - Helps increase blood circulation.

      *Replacing Shampoo W/ Conditioner - Shampoos, even if it claims to be 'conditioning' will almost always dry out your hair to some extent, causing are already naturally-dry hair to be more prone to tangles and breakage. "Co-wash" (wash hair with shampoo) instead.

      *Massaging Your Scalp - Also helps blood circulation, awakens your follicles.

      *Carefully Combing/Detangling - Black hair is naturally VERY fragile, relaxed or not. Often running a comb through it can break it, damaging it, making it shorter. If you must detangle, detangle when your hair is wet, and soaked in conditioner. Comb from the ends to the root.

      *Be careful as to not use too much product on your scalp. (Oiling, 'greasing' your scalp is not necessary, you hair will produce it's own natural oils) Too much product on the scalp can clog the pores.

      *Sealing - Oil is a sealant (not necessarily a moisturizer), so after you condition, seal the moisture with something like Avocado Oil or Olive Oil. This will help the mositure last longer.

      *Get trims once every 10-12 weeks if your hair is natural, every 6-8 weeks if your hair is relaxed.

      *Read the ingredient list - ingredients such as petroleum jelly (vaseline, used in a lot of products in the Black market), alcohol (used in some shampoos and oil sheen, dires out hair) should be avoided.

      *Wear protective styles often to retain your length, helping it stay long
      - Wig/Half Wig (http://www.youtube.com/muffinismylovers has tutorials)
      -Braids/Micros
      -Quick Weave (as long as no glue touches your hair, [use seran wrap]!)
      -Sew In Weave (make sure it is taken down professionally and a net is used)
      - Phoney Ponytail baggy method (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5fXmaiDj70)

      *Great kitchen products to put in your hair
      -Olive Oil (good sealant)
      -Honey (smoothes hair, makes it softer and easier to manage [rinses out great])
      -Mayonnaise (best deep conditioning treatment ever!)

    Can some give me a hair regime that I can follow so I can get long african american hair?
    I have african american hair and my hair has never been relaxed before .My hair reaches right before my neck.

    • ANSWER:
      I completely agree with this answer. Don't damage your ahir with wigs, extensions or weaves!

      You have already reached a good length you can style.

      African Hair is no different in how much care it needs. People just don't seem to know it. The only difference to caucasian and asian hair is the shape of the hair shaft, which is very oval instead of round (asian) or slightly oval (caucasian)
      This and its tightly curled structure makes it a bit more vulnerable to bending and tugging it. Which is why procedures like relaxing or extensions can be so fatal.
      Well taken care of you can get the best out of it and reach a nice length! Most people just tend to make mistakes in care.

      Shampoo: Try natural with a mild detergent or even detergent free! it will keep the hair from aging fast which would make it dry and brittle.
      Recommendations: Earthly Delight Shampoo (Willner.com), Aubrey Organics Shampoo, Shampoo Bars, Soap Nuts

      Conditioner: Silicone free is the way to go, Cones add a film of silicone to your hair that will make it look great, but underneath it won't be able to 'breath', meaning no moisture whatsoever will get into your hair shaft.
      Try Earthly Delight or Aubrey Organics for great Conditioner!

      Combing, Handling: Comb with a wide toothed wood or horn comb that does not have any sharp seams and edges. Handle your hair very gently and as it gets longer try to wear it up often so the ends won't get damaged. There is very hair friendly styles with hair sticks, and hairforks, clips etc.

      Trims: Grow intensively but not without any trims at all, a trim is what will keep your hair from tapering too much before you reach terminal length.

      Oils: Use hair oil in your lengths, I love Coconut or Camellia Oil. I leave it in for days.

      Washing: Don't wash to often, mild shampoos will help you stretch your washes, you hair will get oily less. Washing hair causes the hair shaft to swell which makes it vulnerable. It is rather torture than care actually..try to find a happy medium between washing often and not washing at all ;)
      I do weekly washes..could go a tad longer without.

      These are some of the basics..

      Last but not least: Be patient and disciplined, so much is possible but it does take time. Naturally long Hair of your type sadly is rare, so it will be even more of a "wow factor" if you achieve your goal!

      Good Luck!

  24. QUESTION:
    I want to grow long hair but im african american...?
    okay i really (REALLY) want to grow long hair since i was five ive had short hair, the thing is my hair is african american and harder to manage and whenever i look up how to grow long african american hair it always says as a transition to braid it the thing is i do not want to...at all is there any natural ways to get your hair to grow faster and be healthier?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Baby your hair...stop using heat (or at least cut back on heat usage to no more than once per week) and try to wear your hair up more. Wearing hair down all the time exposes your ends to harsh weather and fabrics, which cause split ends and will cause you to keep having to trim your ends. I'm not saying wear a bun 24/7, but do it at least a few times per week.
      2. Keep your hair moisturized...deep condition your hair once per week. If your hair is really damaged, use a deep protein treatment twice a month...if your hair is healthy, use deep protein treatments every 4-6 weeks. Also, find a leave in conditioner that your hair loves and moisturize your hair at least once a day.
      3. Eat healthier...Take a hair/skin/nail vitamin, eat a high protein diet and drink half your weight in water (ex: if you weigh 120 pounds, drink at least 60 ounces of water) and do 10 minute scalp massages daily.

      Also, do not get relaxers less than every 3 months...getting relaxers too close together means you have a better chance of getting relaxer on previously relaxed hair, which can cause breakage. Also, make sure to trim any damaged/split ends you have now so they don't travel up the hair strand and make you have to cut more.

      Have patience because hair can take a long time to grow and good luck :]

  25. QUESTION:
    How to grow my african american hair long?
    Ok well I use to wear braids but, took it off in the end of April (my hair is to my shoulder) . Since then it seems like my hair has grown an inch! My hair is always moisturize. I started noticing that my hair is shedding but, I don't understand why. What should I do to stop the shedding? And I haven't straighten my hair in a month. Please help me! I want to grow my hair long.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair sheds 50-100 hairs a day. Check for little white bulbs on the ends. If there are you're fine.

      If there aren't bulbs on the ends that's breakage. Which is not okay. But, if you keep your hair moisturized and don't use heat often I doubt it's breakage. If it is check out your moisture/protein balance (read here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/278612/the_fine_art_of_protein_and_moisture.html?cat=69 ) because that's the only thing I know of that would cause it.

  26. QUESTION:
    How to get African American Hair long and full..? or appear longer?
    Hi:) I am an african american and my hair is somewhat long. its a little passed my shoulders. I play a lot of sports so i put it up in a ponytail. Because i put it up, my edges break off easily.I also get it cut every so often...
    Is there anything i can do so my hair would not break off a lot? any hair product recommendations? or is there a trick to make my hair appear longer?
    thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      Are you putting your hair in a tight ponytail, because that is what causes it to break off like that. It is called traction alopecia, so don't tie your hair up so tight. Haircuts can make hair to appear full or washing the hair with a little baking soda can make the hair look more fuller.

  27. QUESTION:
    Why do many people believe African American hair can't grow long?
    i've seen dreads, to one's waist, like bob marley.
    i've seen long dreads on india arie too...
    none of these people were mixed like the myth goes...
    a person doesn't have to be light skinned or mixed to have long hair...
    what makes people think this?
    i think its the chemicals to straightened african american hair that might be stunting the growth, burning the scalp, and frying the ends?
    thanks to all the responses.

    • ANSWER:
      Lack of knowledge is why someone would think that. Hair is hair, if taken care of, it will grow any length.

  29. QUESTION:
    this question is for girls with naturally long african american relaxed hair,how do you grow your hair so long?
    ive been trying to grow my hair out for a long time now but i get alot of split ends ive tried alot of things and when it doesnt really do anything for me i dont know what im doing wrong so i just would like to get a little help with my regimen please and thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm so glad that you asked, because I had the same problem.

      First, I stopped using 'relaxers' or any chemicals on my hair. Then, I had to wait about a year until my hair grew out, (about 2 inches), until it was all natural again. Then, I had my hair braided, and left the braids in for about four months. After the braids were out, I started washing and pressing my hair every two weeks. You need to use a good shampoo and conditioner.

      Fifteen YEARS later....yes...you have read correctly... my hair is about shoulder length when blow-dried, and when flat-ironed, it almost reaches the middle of my back.

      Took a long time, but now I'm swinging it!

  34. QUESTION:
    How to get long healthy african american hair?
    Ok so I straighten my hair because I HATE the way it looks naturally. However, it has suffered from some damaged, including split ends and not being as long as it used to be, and I just want to know some tips that I can have to get healthy hair and have my hair grow back again. I'm reluctant to style my hair because I don't want to mess it up and it always looks a hot mess. Amerie's hair is exactly what I want (her black hair)

    • ANSWER:
      My hair is all natural. I know the deal as I some times hot comb my hair for it to be straight. Amerie is a poor example of black hair as many celebs have weaves and hair extensions. Use products designed for ethnic hair. Use those that are moisture rich. Spray your scalp with olive oil. Get regular trimmings to curb split ends. Do not straighten your hair all the time and if you must use some thing to protect it from heat/works with heat. Drink plenty of water and eat garlic. Garlic does help with hair and nail growth. Shampoo it 1-2 times each week. I hope this helped you some.

  35. QUESTION:
    i need a hair growth vitamin that works for african american hair and will make it grow long and fast!?
    im trying to get my hair long and past shoulder length i need a vitamin that really works for african americans especially! i want it to be by my bra strap by the summer time which is in like 3 or 4 months... HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      There are no pills, shampoos, oils or creams that will speed up hair growth. Hair grows on average 1/2 and inch per month. Some people's hair grows quicker, some slower...it's all predetermined in your DNA. And you can't alter your DNA with shampoos or conditioners. I've heard prenatal vitamins work but I've only heard that from women who are already pregnant, so I don't know if they would work on someone is not pregnant.
      The main thing to keep in mind when growing out your hair is to keep it healthy. Get regular trims (every 4-6 weeks), eat lots of veggies, proteins etc. Make sure you are not over processing your hair with colors perms or any other chemicals. Don't overdry your hair with heat styling---blow dryers, flat ironing, hot rollers etc. Good luck

  36. QUESTION:
    Why does it take so long 4 African Americans hair to grow?
    My name is Rashad and I am 16 trying to grow my hair out. It seems to take a long time and the only length that my hair has obtain is that of a person that can wear those little curls that short haired people where. I was my hair about maybe every two days. And 1 out of two days i condition it. I use DAX and Doo Groo and I just recieved a trim about a month ago. What should U go to make my hair grow faster.

    • ANSWER:
      For most African Americans, hair growth can be difficult because we buy most, if not all, of our hair care products from traditional and chinese beauty supply stores. When you do this, you buy a hair-damaging useless product that claim to be “all-natural" and for super hair growth. However, they contain synthetic emulsifiers and harsh detergents, such as Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Phosphates, Dimethicone, and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. Unfortunately, these products are loaded with toxins and chemicals that actually dry and strip your hair of vital nutrients it needs to grow.

      I learned that unnatural hair care products are a no-no for someone who wants long-lasting, healthy hair growth.
      The key to growing long black hair is finding a hair growth product that contains powerful essential oils, natural herbs, and vitamin rich nutrients your hair needs to survive. Look for products with ingredients such as: Aloe Vera, Citrus Fruits, Jojoba, Rosemary, and Sage. Make sure you stray away from all natural products that use natural extracts. Extracts are not as powerful as essentials oils. They are a cheap substitute for the real thing. Although there are several natural hair care products on the market, not all hair growth products are created equal. Make sure you read the fine print. Most “natural” products still contain phosphates, sodium lauryl sulfate, petroleum, mineral oil, and other lab created humectants that ultimately damage your hair. My advice---if you can’t read the ingredients, don’t buy the product. When I was searching for a natural hair growth product, I found one really great buy, Beauty 4 Ashes Super Hair Growth System. Finding this company took me awhile; but Beauty 4 Ashes pretty much gives you everything you need to make your hair grow. Foremost, I checked the ingredient listings and the products contained no artificial ingredients. The system also included hair growth vitamins, a great hair healthy eating plan, and even scalp stimulating hair growth exercise routine. At first, the system may seem a bit pricey, but, boy was I impressed with the results. In 9 months, I went from a thinning hair line to a full head of hair that could be braided. My sister is now using the system and her hair has grown 3" in 2 months. Now, I am no product junkie; but I have to tell you that this product is worth the money. It does not cost an arm and leg and it is worth every penny you pay. You can find it easily at www.discoverb4a.com. Also, check for it on Ebay. You may actually find a deal.

      Try wrapping it up at night, as long as it's natural and you dont overprocess it somehow it should grow just as fast as anyone else's. Wash it once or twice a week max. And dont use the flat iron the ones with the stove/oven. Use the other flat irons that reach temps between 350 and 450.

    How to grow long african american hair fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Be aware - Don't be sold on the pretences that their are products designed for your hair type to help 'grow it faster'. The cold hard truth & reality - It's just a marketing gimmick. However there are claims that there are healthy home remedy alternatives, and while I've never tried them to prove whether they are worth their time it maybe something you may want to look into. See this link: On natural ways to grow african american hair faster.

      http://www.google.com.au/#sclient=psy&hl=en&q=How+to+grow+african+american+hair+faster&aq=0c&aqi=g-c1g3g-b1&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&fp=50f04cf9144e4f5d and explore what works for you. Remember what works on other people ma not necessarily work on you and vice versa.

      Also try this link about hair growth rate for african american hair:
      http://www.google.com.au/#hl=en&xhr=t&q=The+rate+of+hair+growth+for+african+american+hair&cp=45&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=The+rate+of+hair+growth+for+african+american+hair&pbx=1&fp=50f04cf9144e4f5d

      As for designed products - Just be aware there are so many scams out there claiming the help your hair grow faster.

      Unfortunately your hair is the slowest growing hair type there is.

      Time, a good healthy diet, scalp stimulation through regular massage & combing, fresh air and exercise will help your hair to respond better to healthier growth of your hair but as I said earlier... nothing will speed up your hair growth.

  41. QUESTION:
    How can an African American with long hair change the texture to a wavy or curly type texture?
    If you have pretty much coarse but very long hair and you get relaxers how can you change the texture to a curly and wavy type?

    • ANSWER:
      Your best bet is to go to the salon and ask a professional. If you get relaxers and it is already straight, you're probably going to have to grow that out since the hair has already been chemically treated and all of the curl has been released. You can try a jerry curl kit.

  42. QUESTION:
    How long does african american hair have to be to get 2 strand twist?
    Im a 13 year old black male trying to grow out my hair.
    How many inches does it actually have to be for me to even get anything done with it?
    |does washing your hair with eggs and honey really help hair growth go faster?|

    • ANSWER:
      This is a really hard question to answer since there are so many variables. So the best we can give you is "it depends".

      To make the 2-strand twist, you need to have hair that is long enough to get into the twist. So if you have short hair, you can make the twist, but they will tend to be very narrow... the hair needs to be long enough to reach it. If you have longer hair, of course, it can travel a longer distance, so you can get wider and therefore thicker twists. Either of these will work, it all depends on what you want. If you really want these now, you may have to start with narrow ones, and gradually work your way up to wider ones.

      Of course, any shorter hairs will tend to come out easily, so you may find yourself having to re-do them more often. And that's alright too.

      You can also supplement with a few false hairs, just to make them more substantial and hold together somewhat better. That is an option as well.

      But I'm sorry to say that there is nothing on earth that will make your hair grow any faster than it does now, as long as you are in good health. It is obvious that hair grows under the skin and gets pushed to the surface. Nothing on the outside can do anything to affect growth. The kind of hair you have has been programmed before you were born -- as long as you are in great health, it will grow according to plan. The best place for the egg and honey (along with some milk) would be in an eggnog, and you can get it to the hair -- from the inside!

    How Can I Get Emo Hair With very Thick, Long, and African American Hair?
    I am have very thick, black hair and i want that kind of look. I'm not looking for pictures or tips but steps on how to make my hair in that style without my mom freaking out. Does anybody have any ideas?
    I already have a relaxer and don't have any access to a salon but my mom's friend is a hair stylist and she always does my hair

    • ANSWER:
      just dont go too overboard. go to the salon, get a nice treatment and relaxer in your hair and have it straightened, then ask for a kind of layered choppy bang type hairstyle, im not emo but im pretty sure its easy to ask for an edgy hair style and look the part with being too much, or a wanna be.

  49. QUESTION:
    How do I make my damaged permed African American hair healthy and long again?
    I have damaged permed African American hair. I want to start to make it healthy. Ive started by only straightening it once a week but I need to know some good products or processes that can make my hair healthy and long again.

    • ANSWER:
      Stop straightening your hair because you're frying it and damaging it. You can get heat damage which will make your hair break off. I do hope you've been using a good heat protectant. Find another way to ensure your hair stays silky smooth throughout the week or after washing, like roller setting it with some setting lotion. You need to completely cut the heat out of your regimin and start using rollers if you want curly hair. Learn to live with the frizz. I had frizzy relaxed hair for years because I refused to use heat after I got heat damage and my hair severely broke off.

      You can go to your local grocery store and buy some olive oil (extra virgin is best) and start doing hot oil treatments before you wash your hair. Also, cut down on the amount of times you use shampoo. If you shampoo your hair every week then start washing with conditioner once a week and shampoo about once or twice a month. Shampoos dry out the hair. Conditioners have cleansing properties so you'll be conditioning your hair as well as getting it reasonably clean. If you don't wash your hair regularly, then I suggest you start, you should condition your hair once a week and you'll begin to see improvement in it. You might want to look at some organic hair care products because they don't contain the bad ingredients most hair products contain.

      Be careful with how you style your hair and try to cut down on it. Blacks have the most fragil hair type out of any race and it EASILY breaks with rough combing, brushing, and using heat. Treat your hair like a new born baby's and this will help keep it from breaking off. Detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb when it's wet and has conditioner in it because this will make it easier and there will be fewer tangles that are breaking off your hair.

      http://www.longhaircareforum.com - there are many natural and relaxed blacks with long hair on this form and you can get tips from them on how to regain healthy hair and start retaining length.

Black Hair Vitamins

Nutrients for Healthy Hair Growth
Your hair thrives best in a healthy well nourished body. With such busy schedules, many people do not get all of the nutrients needed for healthy hair growth through their diet alone. This is why natural products for hair growth and hair loss have become so popular. There are specific vitamins and nutrients that can have a profound effect on your hair's overall health. Individuals who want healthier, faster growing hair, or who suffer with hair problems, are advised to take use natural products because they are claimed to have no negative side effects.

Examples of these hair growth products are food supplements. These are actually nutrients that our body needs and examples are vitamin A, zinc, and folic acid. These are important in keeping your hair healthy because they help build and repair cells in the body especially hair cells. These food supplements have no scientific proof that they cure hair loss problems but you should know their importance because these are provided in your diet.

Provided in the article are some information of important nutrients for healthy hair and body.

Protein

This is an important nutrient because is the building blocks of all cells in the body especially hair cells. Inadequate protein in the diet may result to dry and brittle hair strands.

You can eat fish, meat, cheese, eggs and milk to have adequate amounts of protein in your body. Most people get more than enough protien in their diet alone and should not use supplements with protein or amino acids. Only strict vegetarians should supplement protein in their diet.

Vitamins

There are several vitamins needed by the body. These are vitamin A, C, E and all B vitamins like B6 and B12, Biotin, Folic Acid, etc. In addition to these, MSM, can be used to naturally lengthen the hair growth phase. Each of these vitamins will be briefly discussed:

Vitamin A is vital because it prevents the drying and clogging of sebaceous glands, which produces sebum. Sebum is important in lubricating the hair follicles. A deficiency in vitamin A makes your scalp become dry and thick causing dandruff that could eventually lead to hair loss.
Vitamin A can be supplied in the diet by eating foods like carrots, sweet potatoes and liver.

Vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid are important in keeping the normal levels of hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin is important because it supplies oxygen from the lungs to the different parts of the body. A deficiency in these vitamins can lead to a decrease in repairing cells of the body.

Foods rich in these particular B vitamins are liver, fish, chicken, meat, beans and vegetables like spinach.

Vitamin C is important in maintaining collagen in the body. Collagen is essential in keeping your body tissues connected and tightly packed. A deficiency in vitamin C results to hair breakages and split ends.

Good sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits, peppers, broccoli and strawberries.

Vitamin E is responsible in keeping a healthy blood circulation and good supply of oxygen to different parts of the body. A deficiency in this vitamin results to ineffective absorption of fats from the diet.

Vitamin E can be supplied in the body by consuming green-leafy vegetables, nuts, grains and vegetable oils.

Biotin, another key ingredient, promotes cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats, and amino acids.

Minerals

These are important micronutrients that must be supplied in the body. Important minerals are heme iron, silica and zinc.

Heme iron. This type of iron is found in meat and cannot be found in vegetables because the latter has a different chemical structure and thus called non-heme iron. Heme is a complex red pigment that contains iron where oxygen binds. Heme iron is absorbed more efficiently compared with non-heme iron. Anemia is an example of a deficiency in heme iron.

Excellent sources of heme iron are clams, oysters and liver. Good sources are beef, shrimp and sardines.

Silica is a trace mineral needed by the body. A deficiency in silica can cause hair problems.

Foods rich in silica are oats, rice, green-leafy vegetables, and strawberry.

Zinc is vital in tissue growth and repair. It also stimulates secretion of oil in the scalp and hair follicles.

Zinc can be supplied by consuming nuts, legumes, oysters, shellfish, and whole grains.

MSM

MSM stands for Methylsulfonylmethane. MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur found in many foods. It naturally increases your hair growth phase. This allows your hair to reach grow longer than it otherwise would.

The hair growth phase (anagen phase) is one of three phases (growth, resting, and shedding) your hair goes through during its cycle. Every hair on your head must go through these three phases. However, since about 90% of your hair is in the growth phase at any given time, you should never experience excessive shedding. Your anagen, or growth phase, is genetically determined. This is why some people can grow hair down their backs, while others can only grow it to their shoulders.

For example, a person with a 2 year anagen can only grow any hair on their head a maximum of 12 inches before it enters the resting phase. (24 months x 0.5 inches per month.) The reason we say maximum is because this would mean that no breakage occurs and the hair is never cut. On the other hand, a person with a 4 year anagen can grow hair 24 inches (48 months x 0.5 inches per month) before it enters the resting phase.

Although MSM is found in many foods, conventional cooking methods have been shown to significantly decrease it effectiveness in this form.

All of these nutrients can be supplied in the diet so there would be no need to purchase food supplements. However, if your diet does not contain suffient amounts of these nutrients, you may benefit from using natural supplements to promote healthier hair.

  6. QUESTION:
    What vitamins help natural black hair grow?
    No offense really because my hair is nappy and I'm about to get braids

    • ANSWER:
      Vitamins alone is not enough to grow hair long what you need is a full hair care regimen
      i've read about hair growing techniqs at
      growafrohairlong.com
      last year and i did what suits me and my hair grew like never b4
      a general technique to grow hair long is to protect the existing hair and grow the healthy new hair from within
      if hair growth = hair breakage
      it will seem like its not growing at all
      -so use protein treatment to prevent breakage and split ends
      -take a healthy highly protein diet + supplementary vitamins for hair and nailswhich are
      "Some of the essential vitamins required for healthy hair are:
      Vitamin A
      Vitamin C
      Vitamin E
      Biotin
      Inositol
      Niacin (Vitamin B3)
      Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
      Vitamin B6
      Vitamin B12
      Vitamins and amino acids are the structural blocks of proteins and enzymes within the body. These substances become even more essential as our body is incapable of synthesizing it from other substances. A strand of hair is an extended protein chain constantly being added to at the root. Hair is not animate, and there is no option for an amino acid or protein to have any enduring effect on the hair health. Henceforth, the vitamins and minerals supplements can improve the health of new hair growth, though the benefit to existing hair is uncorroborated.

      - scalp massage daily
      - minimize manipulation of your hair as possible
      normally Hair grows at an average rate of about 1/2 inch per month. so you should get 6 inches growth a year with proper care
      MSM lengthens your natural anagen phase, which allows your hair to grow much longer. Your anagen phase, or growth phase, is genetically determined and limits the maximum length that your hair can reach. The hair growth phase (anagen phase) is one of three phases (growth, resting, and shedding) your hair goes through during its cycle. For example, a person with a 2 year anagen may only grow hair to their shoulders before it enters the resting phase. On the other hand, a person with a 4 year anagen will grow hair down their back before it enters the resting phase
      but since you dont want to buy anything just use
      satin or silk pillow case or wear a head scarf "satin and silk don't absorb moisture from your hair " when going to sleep
      when brushing hair treat it like gold
      start from the tips up to the scalp and if it tangels just loose the brush and untangel it with your fingers
      scalp massage the for a good blood circulation
      with both hand press your finger tips "not nails" on the scalp and move them in round motion make sure you're not rubbing your fingertips against the scalp but moving it with them for about 2 minutes twice a day , it gives a good feeling of relaxation and increases blood supply to the scalp which has good effect on hair growth.
      use natural products when ever possible like Olive oil for moisturizing
      a zinc containing shampoos, its proven to grow a healthy hair and prevent hair fall
      finally minimize stress because it has a negative effect on hair as on the overall health by sports and meditation or worm bath in candle lights or whatever you like to do
      and be patient because beauty is not achieved by night but its achievable
      - minimize manipulation of your hair as possible, braiding is a good solution
      normally Hair grows at an average rate of about 1/2 inch per month. so you should get 6 inches growth a year with proper care
      to protect a curly hair you should understand that its dry because the natural oils are prevented from moisturizing the hair from the scalp by the curls even when the scalp might be oily , and more then that in every curl there is a weak point with more tendency to break
      the solution would keeping it mosturized all the time by not washing hair more than 3 times a months with shampoo and using only conditioner when ever you feel like washing it
      when washing do "CWC"condition ,wash ,condition.
      dilute the shampoo in water in other bottle before applying it to the hair ,after towel dry apply the leave in conditioner.

My past history with my hair is not that great. A few years ago someone left a relaxer in for a week and my hair fell out in the back corner so that back of my hair has never really been the same. I am trying to strengthen it and make it healthier. So I was going to take some vitamins while my hair was in braids so that it wasn't getting damaged by chemicals. Also, if you have any suggestions for hair shampoos that would be great. Because right now I am using Motions, but I saw a commercial for Wen Hair Care and I didn't know if I should try that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank You!

    • ANSWER:
      The vitamin Biotin helps strengthen hair and nails, so I would recommend using that. I don't know if these shampoos are scientifically proven to improve hair, but I have used Tressemme 24 hour Body with great results, as well as Pantene Beautiful Lengths. So maybe try those, as well as a leave-in conditioning cream during the day.

  20. QUESTION:
    how to grow longer Black hair?
    (for black or mixed girls who have grown longer hair or already have really long hair)

    are there any vitamins or remedies i can use to make my hair longer?

    what vitamins would you suggest?

    how did you get your hair longer?

    what natural remedies or rituals did you do to make your hair longer?

    i really want longer hair. so far it's 5 and a half inches past my shoulders. it's a good length,but i want my OWN long hair lol.

    so any suggestions?

    thanks =)

    • ANSWER:
      By following these steps, it is HIGHLY likely you will have longer hair in a short period of time.

      1) I know this is tough for some ladies, especially those who treasure the color and texture of their hair, but you must trim any parts of your hair that look damaged. This will increase the possibility that the rest of your hair will grow healthier. For a natural looking trim, go to a hair salon and ask them to trim your hair to look healthy.
      2) Avoid using hair products that have heat; Such as hair drier, curling iron, and a straightener. Another way is to keep your hair down when you go to bed. Keeping a tight pony tail will cause hair loss.
      3) Stay away from harsh chemicals in your hair; Such as hair dye, highlights, and bleach.
      4) Avoid chlorine and saltwater; i.e: swimming and going to the beach.
      5) Be extremely careful with what jewelry you wear. Not necklaces / earrings, more like barrettes / RUBBER BANDS [hair ties are OK]. Don't use brushes without the soft rubber tips. The plastic ones with just bristles won't help your hair at all.
      6) Don't braid your hair in tight braids / tight coils! That will stress your hair out.
      7) AVOID DIETS!!! This is to the ladies out there who might want these advice too. Not getting enough nutrients will restrict your hair from growing and being healthy. Diets also result to hair loss, stress, drowsiness, and pimples.
      8) Be gentle with hair when wet! Don't rub your hair with a towel, gently SQUEEZE it.
      9) Comb your hair from knots before shampooing.
      10) Give yourself the permission to be LAZY! Don't shampoo your hair for 4 days every week, leaving 3 days of washing your hair. Let your natural hair oils do it's work.
      11) Rinse your hair in as cold water as you can stand. Not only will this make the cuticle lay flat and less likely to snag and break, but by the same token you'll get the added benefit of very shiny hair that's easier to comb wet
      12) Become familiar with the ingredients in your styling products. Once you know what affects your hair positively or detrimentally, you will be able to effectively choose products that contain ingredients that are best for your hair type.

      Follow these steps and i guarantee your hair will be long, healthy, and silky!

      Hope i helped & Good luck!

    How Can you make black hair grow faster?
    My hair is really short know because I too cut it. There was alot of breakage and my hair dresser cut it to even it out. I hate it, I mean the hair cut is cute but i hate short hair like this, I think I look like a boy. Ive been taking hair, nails, and skin vitamins but I doubt that they have a huge affect. Does anyone know a way I can get my hair to grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      WOW , look at that.....miss "I heart horses" there just completely stole my answer from a previous question via "copy and paste" and is passing my words off as her own.

      My answer is about the GNC UltraNourishair and ProCaps labs capsules...

      I have taken the GNC pills for 4 months and supplemented them with extra Biotin because they only have 1200 mcg of Biotin and you should try for a minimum of 2500 micrograms.

      I am switching to Procaps labs capsules when I run out of the GNC because Procaps formula has more Biotin in a more pure form with more of the trace elements that support healthy hair growth.

      I take about 5000 micrograms which equals 5 milligrams of Biotin daily and my hair is growing fast and thick and dark.

  24. QUESTION:
    How come the Hairfinity hair growth vitamins aren't sold in stores and seems like you can only buy it online?
    or order it in a certain black related hair magazine? Is it because it is that good?

    • ANSWER:
      There are less overhead costs involved if you sell a product online or by mail order. To sell it in stores requires the product to be shipped and possibly placed on the shelves. A shipping company subtracts from their profits.

      The manufacturer makes more money that way, and money makes the world go 'round.

  26. QUESTION:
    Any suggestions in how to make Black Hair grow?
    Hair grows slowly and I take vitamins use growth oils eat the right green foods. What else is there to do?

    • ANSWER:
      First, I'm gonna direct you to my greatest online hair resource: forum.blackhairmedia.com! Seriously, it's helped me a great deal as I am just beginning my proper hair care journey.

      Now if you want to grow your hair naturally, all the vitamins and oils in the world won't help unless you keep your hair MOISTURIZED! If your hair is dry, your hair will grow but it will also break at the ends so you won't really retain that much hair.

      I'd suggest regularly conditioning your hair, a few times a week with a leave-in conditioner, of course regular conditioner when you're washing your hair, and also deep conditioning.

      Take the time to check out BHM, they have a wealth of info if you're serious about growing healthy hair.

  27. QUESTION:
    What products or vitamin would you recommend for black hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Well for one try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the time and it makes your hair grow faster. You can find it at walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or
      luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.

      Btw if your looking for a cute hairstyle to try out these tutorials. they are awesome. ;D

  28. QUESTION:
    How do I get rid of black hair dye naturally?
    I've had my hair dyed black for about 8 months now. I've read things about using vitamin C, and stuff like that, but does it really work? I just want to get rid of the black, and go back to my light brown hair, without causing too much damage.

    • ANSWER:
      I am a professional hairstylist, so I hope I can help!
      First off, sadly, black is the hardest color to remove! It fills the hair shaft completely. The only way to really remove all the way is to strip it with bleach.. Which you should 100% definitely get that done by a professional. The only thing you can really do is let it grow out. I had black hair and didn't want to strip it, so I know the pain!
      Vitamin C doesn't really do much for the hair. I mean-all vitamins help the hair to be stronger and healthier, but if you really want to promote healthy, strong hair Prenatal Vitamins work great. They have Folic Acid, which is what the hair needs to grow. Also-protein, fish oil, and vitamin D help also.

      I wish you luck in the long hair process ahead ;)

  33. QUESTION:
    I have a problem with black textured hair. It's full on top and weak at back. Can it grow all around? Thanks.
    My black-textured hair has always grown in layers. For years I've never had my hair grow past my neck. Even after having gotten "Jeri curls" it still won't grow. I've used so-called "miracle gro" product after "miracle gro" product and taken hair vitamins but still to no avail! I shampoo my hair at least twice a week, and sleep with a satin bonnet-like cap that I purchase from beauty supply stores nightly to prevent breakage, but still my hair grows full on the top, and weak at back. The lady that does my hair, says that I should refrain from getting a curl for a while, and let my hair grow out in a "natural" to give my hair a rest from all the chemicals. I last had my hair done in November of 2006, and still I haven't noticed any significant growth. I even have a little "bald spot" at the top of my scalp in back that really is bothering me! She said that I may be in the early stages of "male pattern baldness" which I don't agree with because I see hair growing in that area.

    Any tips?
    I am from the UK

    • ANSWER:
      Hair is primarily protein. So make sure you are getting, at least, 4 small servings of protein rich foods a day. Fish, poultry, meat, eggs, nuts, seeds, or beans.

      Dairy products are also rich in protein. Milk, cheese and yogurt.

      Make sure your braids are not too tight. That can cause breakage.

Ive been taking hair vitamins and using a hair deep conditioner, what else could i do to grow my hair back? This happed 2 months ago and now its like 3 inches long

    • ANSWER:

  38. QUESTION:
    need your help! what vitamins make your hair thicker and grow faster ? ?
    I have natural curly hair but it doesn't have enough body and home remedies or good hair products made for black women with curly hair to make it thicker? and grow faster

    • ANSWER:
      Nioxin shampoo and conditioner. Its a cleansing agent with tons of good stuff for your hair, it keeps it healthy and has a protien in it which revs up the growing process. Also, BIOTIN. Thats what your hair is made up of, that and kertain. Which is dead protien that has been hardened... hence... your actual hair strand. Thats all it is lol. Take a multi viatmin once a day and one biotin vitamin once a day.

      NOTE*** DO NOT be fooled by these crazy ads talking about " take this pill and it will make your hair grow like crazy!" All they are are these super vitamin pills. Your body can only take in so many vitamins a day and it discards the rest, so really your just wasting your money. They are pretty genius though b/c ppl who want to grow their hair out so bad will pay that for those pills but little do they know they are being scammed. All you need is a once a day vitamin and a once a day biotin vitamin, you can get these as your local grocery store. Also you need to make sure your using some good leave in conditioner and an anti frizz serum on your ends to keep them from breaking off.

    how to i get my hair to grow past my shoulders?
    im trying to grow out my hair. I'm taking hair vitamins and im philipino and black. It seems like my hairs not growing at all what do i do?

    • ANSWER:
      Healthy long hair can only be grown by a health person!

      So take good care of your health, eat a balance diet and have proper & regular sleeping hours
      Avoid stress as much as possible because that is bad for hair and health both.

      Minimize the use of strong chemical products on your hair (dyes etc), keep them clean and brush them regularly. Occasionally use some warm natural oil such as olive oil or coconut oil if your hair get dry (don't leave on for long, just massage in to the scalp and wash after 20 min to a couple of hours).

      Use a wooden comb or brush instead of plastic ones if you can as it avoids static buildup in the hair.

      Some people grow hair slowly so be patient.

      Good luck :)

  44. QUESTION:
    I have short black permed hair it grows fast but breaks of just as fast how can i get it to stop breaking off?
    Can you please list products that you use and things(techniques) you use to style your hair
    I was also wondering if vitamin water(mineral water) would help.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, first you need to figure out WHY your hair is breaking.
      Is it breaking due to lack of moisture or lack of protein?
      Is it breaking because you're putting harsh chemicals on your hair?

      You should also try pre-pooing. Where you basically put conditioner and/oroil (Olive, jojoba, peppermint, etc)on your hair BEFORE washing and letting it stay on for like an hour then washing it off.
      Well, what you should do is buy a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner... Like Tresemme's or Aussie Moist. Infusium's great also.
      Deep condition your hair every week. Organic Root Stimulator's Mayo is GREAT for protein. Le Kair's Cholesterol is good for moisture. Deep condition every week.
      STOP using heat on your hair until you hair stops breaking because all it will do is continue to break so... Let your hair air dry for a while.
      ALWAYS use leave-in conditioner. Like Organic's by Africa's Best.
      Be sure to cut off the split ends... That could be why your hair's breaking.
      Always wear a satin or silk scarf to bed.

    • ANSWER:
      you do scalp massages daily. Give your hair protein treatments once a month and deep condition once or twice a week. Moisturize daily and seal with some type of oil. Wash you hair with a natural shampoo once a week. You also co wash a few times a week ( wash with conditioner). Also do apple cider vinegar rinses (two table spoons of acv in three cups of water) after you deep condition. When clarify once every two weeks (baking soda mixed with shampoo) to remove build up from your hair. also take multi vites everyday and exercises.

      you should also sleep with a du rag or satin cap every night especially if you sleep on a cotton pillow every night, Wear some protective styles(styles that protect your ends so that your hair can retain length) like braids, two strand twists, buns, pony tails, weaves, etc (you can find more on youtube). Try to avoid heat as much as possible and try to stretch your relaxer for as long as possible. Avoid usiing brushes and use a wide tooth comb at all times (especially when detangling our hair). DO NOT USE PRODUCTS WITH SULFATES, ALCOHOL, SILICONES, MINERAL OIL, OR PETROLATUM. DO NOT PUT "GREASE ON YOUR HAIR OR SCALP". USE NATURAL OILS ON YOUR SCALP AND WATER BASED MOISTURIZERS ON YOUR HAIR. AFTER YOU PUT IN YOUR MOISTURIZE YOUR HAIR PUT OIL ON TOP OF YOUR HAIR TO SEAL IN THE MOISTURE. Also use gels like eco styler. When you wash your hair don't scratch your scalp cause the stuff that you scratch off is your scalps natural sebum(i was taught to believe that it was dirt). It protects your scalp. When you do use heat on your hair always use a heat protectant. Black girl in middle school with BSL. hair growth chart link http://beautifulkinks.blogspot.com/2010/…
      btw the reason why you think your hair hasn't grown is because it keeps breaking off. Its not the growth thats keeping your hair short its the fact the it isn't retaining length. just thought you should know : )

  48. QUESTION:
    How can black people grow long hair?
    I never relaxed my hair. I get it presses every 2- 21/2 weeks. I also take vitamins.
    My hair grew around the top of my back now!

    • ANSWER:
      If you take good care of your hair, keep your scalp clean and wash your hair weekly with a mild shampoo such as Cream of Nature you should see results. Make sure to condition often. Also, the use of tea tree oil products to stimulate the scalp also helps to promote hair growth. Make sure to stay away from petroleum and mineral oil as they can clog the follicles.
      Also make sure to keep moisture on the hair, it is very important for healthy hair. Use natural oils, like olive oil and sweet almond oil.
      Make sure to keep the ends of the hair safe by protecting them at night by wearing a satin scarf. This will help to prevent split ends, which contribute to hair breakage.
      Foods rich in protein also help to keep the hair and skin healthy.
      Good Luck Growing.

  49. QUESTION:
    hair growing ..is it?
    is Fast Grow - Hair vitamins for Black hair by Exotic Allure sold in stores if so what stores any where around nj irvington or anywhere like that

    heres the website

    http://www.exoticallure.com

    or is this sold in stores
    http://www.fasterhairgrowth.com

    • ANSWER:
      Remember one thing. All hair growth by applying vitamins will make the hair growth dependant on vitamins. Once vitamins are applied your hair will depend on vitamins. OK so then you will keep on applying vitamins all your life but your body and your hair will become dependent on them and also immune. You may take a good brand of multivitamins which would always help. Of course multivitamins with minerals. Definitely the best way to restore hair growth is by first letting the hair and the scalp remain moderately moist. You can do this by applying olive olive. Just reasonably enough so that your scalp and the hair do not become too dry. Immediately after applying oil massage your head and hair, lightly in the beginning and then moderately vigorously so that blood circulation is activated and increased and the supply of natural nutrients including hormones in your body reach the hair and the scalp. Do this at least twice a day in the beginning and then even three times a day if the hair loss is great or the growth is not enough. You will see the difference yourself. In the beginning the hair will begin to fall, but don't worry about that. New buds and follicles will start growing. That is the reason why head and hair massagers have become so popular. And remember massage for atleast 10 to 15 minutes each time. It may be tiring but the results will be positive. Calcium with vitamin D is good for hair growth. You may also take that. Application of vitamins will render your hair immune and ultimately your ability to grow the hair naturally will be diminished. The results are guaranteed. In the beginning you will start cursing me for such a tedious procedure but once you get used to it, you will be very, very happy and satisfied. Wish you good luck.

  50. QUESTION:
    Why do some young people have some bits of white hair growing?
    My classmate is young but he grew some white hairs. He have black hair. Is he missing any nutrients or vitamins? What is the cause of this?

    • ANSWER:
      Some times it is genetic. In my family, we look very, very, very young old, meaning in our 40's and 50's, we easily pass for 20's/30's. However,
      my family grays in our late teens and early twenties.

      This generation color their hair early.

      Another reason for graying early, stress--school problems, family problems, lose, relationship problems.


Best Hair Care Products For Black Hair

Top Ranking of African American Hair Care Products
Okay, so your hair is fried and you are tired of using drugstore hair care products and desperately want healthier hair. Well, you can have it, but you are going to have to buy a higher grade of hair care product. Some of the best products on the market for dry, damaged, or chemically treated hair are Ojon, John Frieda, Redken, Carol's Daugther, & Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead hair care products. When it comes to salon quality products, this is how the rankings break down by ethnicity.

Caucasian & European Hair Type: Redken, Paul Mitchell, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Max Moisture & Gro System
African American: Carol's Daugther, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth, Ojon
Black European and Asian Hair: Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead, RedKen, TIGI
Hispanic & Bi-Racial Hair: Ojon, Tigi, Paul Mitchell, Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth (non-ethnic)

As you can see, your hair care product of choice depends on your hair type, which was determined while you were still in your mother's womb. I have supplied several of my stylists with each of the above brands for my hair boutiques in the United Kingdom, United States, Scandinavia, & Japan at one time or another. It would take to long to tackle each product, so I have dedicated this article to African American hair care. Here is the down low on the top three products for African American hair.
If you are not particular about a product being all-natural, and have a dry scalp that can absorb lots of beeswax, butters, and heavy oils, then try Carol's Daughter is the best choice, especially her Hair Milk, Mimosa Hair Honey, Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner, and Rosemary Mint Herbal Shampoo for Dry Hair. The major complaint of Carol's Daughter products is that they contain strong fragrances that can trigger your allergies if you have a sensitive nose, asthma, or fragrance headaches. Also, some of her products are heavy and greasy, but Carol's Daughter herself will tell you that her products are not meant for everyone! Again, they are also not all-natural, depending on the product. You can find these products at sephora or at the online website.

A slightly better alternative is to opt for Ojon. Ojon products are decent and will not leave your hair dry. They work great for people with straight, long, and fine hair and are nice on multiethnic hair. Ojon is available online.

Beauty 4 Ashes, however, is usable by any hair type because, instead of trying to make on product that would be great for everyone, they produce two lines of GodHead products--- for ethnic and non-ethnic hair. Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead ethnic hair care products are great for black men and women who have natural hair or tighter curl patterns. They also work well on chemically treated hair and thick hair that is starting to thin. Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Silky Smooth system and Max Gro System are 100% all natural and do not contain any sulfates or parabens. They are full of so many herbs and oils, yet is not too heavy. You can find their products at wwwdiscoverb4acom

If you have African American hair, remember that your hair needs moisture. Do not let anyone tell you different. By switching to higher quality products, your hair won't be greasy, it actually will be moisturized. Here are some good rules of thumb to stick with when making your next purchase:

1. All-natural products are superior

2.Look at ingredients, if the product contains parabens, which can lead to cancer, Just Say No.

3. Price does not make the poduct. Always look for quality ingredients like Shea, Jojoba, Oil, Sunflower, Castor, etc

4. Do not over process your hair with excess heat, straightening combs, and super hot blow dryers.

  2. QUESTION:
    What is the best hair care product for black hair?
    I heard the Alter Ego Hair Products for damaged hair is really good but i don't know if its good for black hair i know its really expensive and i don't want to spend my money if its no good for my hair
    has anyone used it and what would you rate it
    if you know of any products that are also good to regrow hair do tell

    10 point to the best advice

    • ANSWER:
      There are numerous products available depending on if your hair is natural or relaxed. Products made by Africa's Best tend to work well in natural hair. They even make a line of products for children called Kid's Organics. For relaxed hair, the Organic Root Stimulator line works very well. It's good for repairing damaged hair and maintenance. They offer products for natural hair as well. None of these products contain mineral oil or petroleum which do nothing but clog hair follicles and prevent the hair from taking in moisture. Try to avoid using any products containing these ingredients. I believe both of these lines contain mostly, if not all natural ingredients. Hope this helps. :-)

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the best hair care products for relaxed black hair?

    • ANSWER:
      The best I've ever used is Wen by Chaz Dean(fig is the most moisturizing so I use that one). I dunno if you've heard of it but it's been great with my hair. I relax and flat iron my hair too and that's made my hair even more damaged and unruley but ever since I've started to use it my hair is soft and shiny and it moves kinda like a white chick's hair now. Never thought that would happen. It's not a shampoo. It's a cleansing conditioner and it's awesome. I'm never shampooing again. You get it from chazdean.com, qvc.com, wenhaircare.com and I think some other places but I don't remember. It's a tad expensive but worth it for me. Hope that helped :)

    • ANSWER:
      Wash and deep condition at least once a week. Limit use of curling irons and flat irons. Limit blow drying, it's best to use rollers and sit under a hooded dryer. Wrap hair at night with a silk or satin scarf to prevent breakage. Relax hair every six weeks and make sure to have ends trimmed. Do not use a lot of grease or oil in your hair either, it will weigh it down. I only grease my scalp after washing.

My hair used to be nice and healthy and a bit past my shoulders but since a few months before school ended I stopped going to my hair stylist as a punishment (I got into some deep trouble) and since then my hair has been breaking off really bad and is significantly shorter. what is the best line of products i can use to repair my heat damage, stop the breakage and start it back growing again?
    also is dr. miracles a good line? because I have been reading a lot of reviews about it and everyone says it's wonderful, but I read the ingredients also and it was alcohols in it

    • ANSWER:
      1) You need a GOOD trim first. Splits will keep splitting and breaking off in an endless cycle if you don't cut them off
      2) You will need a non-sulphate shampoo, leave-in conditioner, regular conditioner, a deep conditioner, and a protein treatment. Use any brand you like but stay away from petroleum and mineral oil.
      3) Maintain a good moisture/protein balance (read here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/278612/the_fine_art_of_protein_and_moisture.html?cat=69 )

      Yeah, alcohol is going to dry out your hair. There are good alcohols and bad ones. Here's a list: http://community.babycenter.com/post/a650595/good_vs._bad_alcohol_in_hair_products.

    I will be moving to the Virgin Islands, what is the best hair care for African American women?
    I will be moving to the VI in about a week and a half. I have lived in Colorado my whole life. For those that have visited Colorado, you all know how dry it can be here. Due to the dry weather here it is very important to keep our hair moisturized and greased. I don’t really like putting very heavy products like grease in my hair, and was wondering what is a good way to mange ones hair in the Virgin Islands. My hair is a little past my shoulders and I was hoping with a more humid climate it would grow more, but I am not sure what is the best way to manage black hair down there.

    • ANSWER:
      You could get a leave-in moisturizer that you can use at any time of the day. It won't be too heavy, and it will keep your hair in tip top shape.

      I am a big fan of Biolage "Daily leave-in tonic". It would be a good choice for you.

  20. QUESTION:
    What is the best hair care I should be doing for my 10 month old African American baby girl?
    I know that hair care is different for black and white babies because of the hair texture. I am a first time mom and would like some input from other moms and dads and hair stylists as well about what is the best thing I should do. Should I treat her hair like my own? What I do now is everyday I oil it with coconut oil and brush it. She has a bald spot on the back of her head which I have noticed most babies do have from laying down a lot. Is there anything I should be doing or some type of special hair product I can use for my baby's hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Wash
      Comb and Detangle
      Moisturize

      Your baby may be sensitive or allergic to some ingredients, like essential oils, so watch closely for unusual reactions or breakouts. Avoid products with mineral oil or petroleum jelly because they tend to clog the pores.

    what are some of the best 100%pure hair products for natural black descent hair?
    i m also trying to grow my hair my hair ,looking for some purboil like coconut and rosemary i m looking to find any stores online where i can get them also feel free to give me some tips on how to grow and care for and also some homemade oil and how to soften

    • ANSWER:
      I have the PERFECT website for you. It's
      www.hairobicsallnatural.com
      The owner/founder is a natural black woman and all her products are all natural. You could eat it it's so natural. Unless you're in Cali, you'd have to have it shipped to you, but for me shipping was very quick.
      I got the scalp/hair booster which smells wonderful. I grease my scalp with this and it actually tingles because of the herbs. It's not heavy at all. I also got the hair oil, which also smells great and I use this to soften my hair, seal my ends, and add shine. Both these products have coconut and rosemary and you can read the other ingredients before you buy them.
      The prices are a little higher than say the "Discount Beauty" supply store, but the products are worth it. I had high expectations and those were met. I would def buy from Hairobics again. The product def lasts a long time too. She also sells shampoo/conditioner and skin products as well.
      Her website also features hair tips. One that I live by is rinsing out your shampoo and conditioner with COLD water. I use warm water to wet my hair and lather and then I make it cold to wash out the shampoo and leave it cold until I wash out the conditioner. This added extra shine to my hair and made it softer. Just like heat from a flat iron isn't great for your hair neither is the heat from water which makes your hair more brittle.
      Oh yeah, the owner's hair is down her back...

      Good luck with everything!

  25. QUESTION:
    Best Shampoo for African American Relaxed Hair?
    My hair isn't that thick and doesn't get that nappy i get relaxers every 8 weeks and wash my hair every week then use wild growth hair oil 3 times a week.It just seems to eat up the moisturizer. What would be the best Shampoo and Conditioner for my hair i want it to be healthy. Also would brands like Tresemme that market to Caucasian people work for my hair also? I live in a small mostly white community were the selection for black hair care products is small and there usually out of my way

    • ANSWER:
      You'd be surprised that many products that do not market specifically to blacks can be used by any hair type. I haven't used products marketed towards blacks in years because they usually contain bad ingredients (IE: petroleum), so don't limit yourself to what you can use. I will usually try a product unless it mentions it's for a certain hair type (blonde, wavy, relaxed, natural, etc). There are many products you can try for your hair from the cheapies like Sauve and V05 (I have V05 moisture milks shampoo) to products like Paul Mitchell, which can only be found in a salon; I used to use Dove and Pantene when I was relaxed. I use natural and organic products, like Wen and Giovanni, olive oil, shea butter, etc for my hair. Wen is a natural hair care line, and Giovanni is a certified organic product line. I have no longer have relaxed hair, but many people with relaxed hair use them, too.

      BTW, blacks usually have a very dry hair type that needs more moisture than other hair types. Relaxers also dry out the hair, which is why many have to keep their scalp oiled/greased.

  26. QUESTION:
    How to care for black/african childs hair?
    My little cousin is 18 months, and my grandmother has a huge struggle trying to do her hair. Her father is black and her mother is from Kenya. (You would think that it would be like regular black hair, but truth be, she is only the second full black grandchild and the only full black girl).

    We are trying to avoid using a hot comb (which we all use) or anything chemical, because she's really too young for that. And her hair is a different type then all of the other family. SO, we just don't know what to do. She hates getting her hair combed (not because it hurts but because she likes to run around and play) which makes it even harder to do her hair.

    The best product we could find (per me :) ) was Soft & Precious Hair Moisturizer and sometimes my grandma (twice actually) used a hot comb for the ends, to make them easier to comb).

    Any suggested hair products including shampoo, conditioner, moisturizer, oil, sheen, etc.? Help please!

    • ANSWER:
      Very good question to ask. I am a full african american and my mom has always taken care of my hair. she's very good at it too. my hair is so healthy and long people always think that I am wearing a weave. For shampoo and conditioner my mother uses cream of nature. My mother also uses Motion hair lotion and hair spray. The lotion softens and detangles hair, it's good to use after washing the hair when the hair is dry. When combing the hair it's good to start from the bottom and work your way up. another thing is when combing take the hair in pieces. my mother started relaxing my hair when i was about 5 years old. my hair is very healthy. my mother only relaxes my hair about 2-3 times a year. if you ever do use relaxer my mom started out using Just For Me. then changed. Another thing my mom does is braid my hair using extensions. it's better that she does it because at the salon they make it too tight and that damages your hair.my mom uses extensions because it gives my hair a break from being combed every day, which is good for the hair, and when my mom braids my hair she doesn't add too much pressure so the braids are not too tight. when my mom takes out my braids she sprays my hair with leave in conditioner so that the braids are easier to take out and leave in conditioner is good for your hair. she also puts leave in conditioner in my hair after washing it while it is still wet. i hope this helped you.

  27. QUESTION:
    What are your favorite hair care products?
    What are your favorite hair care products?
    shampoos, conditioners' leave in conditioners, heat protectants, hair spray, hair mousse,
    any other type that i may have forgotten . . . my hair is naturally straigh so no curl products for naturally curly hair

    also your fav tools
    and favorite extensions

    and what is the best brand of black eyeshadow

    • ANSWER:
      suave is known for their "natural" ingredients. I've used suave and it has not been that great on me.

      i have straight hair like you and i use dove. I use daily moisture shampoo/conditioner and sometimes dove intense condition when i feel that my hair is extremely dry. Leave in the intense conditioner for about 10-15 minutes. during that time wash your body, shave, or put on your bathrobe and read.

      i dont use heat protectant since i really don't straighten my hair with a heater on daily basis. i do it once in a while. if you are doing it at a daily basis and do not want to damage your hair, consider asking your hairstylist. they would know whats best for your hair. normally they try to sell you products that are expensive, but you can also ask them for drug store products.

      for hair extensions none. my hairs long.

      and for hair tools, i used professional tools. i didnt want to take the chance of damaging my hair. my iron costed me 0. had it for five years and then i ended up breaking the thing in my suitcase when i traveled out of state.

      good luck!

  28. QUESTION:
    If you have natural black hair, what types of products should you be using? ?
    I heard Pantene isn't the best. I've been natural for a while, but I'm not I'm still looking for hair care products will help my hair stay healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      Personally, I think it is based on what works well for your hair. Depending on who you ask you can probably find someone to criticize any product that you put on your hair. The only ones that I would say are definitely bad are those that clog your hair down like petroleum or petrolatum. Try this website, www.nappturality.com. They have a forum on both homemade and commercial hair products. And between all the posters, you'll find someone with a review on any product that you can think of.

  29. QUESTION:
    How to get soft, shiny hair?
    I have naturally straight black hair, and I want to know what hair-care products are best for my hair.

    I also switch off my shampoo/conditioner products every other month

    and Another question I have is which is more important roots or ends?

    • ANSWER:
      For soft shiny hair I use neoutrogena triple moisture silk touch leave in cinditioner. Adn I walways get compliments on my hair. People say your hair looks so soft. and healthy. Roots are definetly more important. They are where your hair grows from. Ends are very important as well though. If you don't take care of your ends the hair that grows will just end up being chopped off. And your hair can be damaged.

  30. QUESTION:
    Asians owning most black hair care and supply stores. What do you think of this?
    I don't know how it is in other states, but here in NY mostly Asians own the Black Hair Care stores.
    No offense to Asians but don't you think it makes more sense if a black person owned a black hair supply store? What if you want to buy a certain product and you're not sure on which one works best for your hair type. A black person would be of more help because they know more about blacks hair texture and how to maintain it. What does an Asian person know about a relaxer? They don't use one. And I've never seen an Asian person styling a black persons hair.

    Save the offensive comments for another question. If you're going to be ignorant, earn your two points else where.

    • ANSWER:
      It is not about knowledge of black hair, it is about economics. The Asians, in particular the Koreans, saw that they could dominate and control the market by pretty much shutting out blacks. They pooled their money, sold what they had in Korea, and came to the US to capitalize on capitalism (it's the American way). They are able to control the production, the importation, and the distribution of products that blacks want. If the products are Korean made - they decide not to do business (allow blacks companies to buy wholesale) with blacks. The Asian stores can offer products at a cheaper price. Most people I know want to pay the lowest price and black owned businesses were not able to compete with that.

      Here in the good ole USA, doing what is morally right is not good business practice. The Asians are just taking care of their business - and once again, the blacks are screwed.

      It is unrealistic to think that blacks can come together, decide to start wearing their natural hair and only support black owned companies like Carol's Daughter. That's not going to happen. :-)

    what is the best scalp oil for african american hair?
    I know some people at school who oil their hair every day with products like dax or blue magic and their hair is so greasy. I want a product which is not greasy but helps my hair to grow. I have heard that Jamaican black castor oil is good for the scalp. What do you recommend?
    http://www.jamaicanblackcastoroil.com/hair-care-products/sunny-isle-jamaican-black-castor-oil.html
    I do not want an emo hair cut

    • ANSWER:
      This is what i put on my hair. Try Hollywood Beauty tee tree oil. Itspretty cheap compared to other oils and is really good for your hair. Also try Hollywood Beauty castor oil with mink oil. I put a litte bit on my scalp and ends and sometimes all throughout my hair. The trick is if you want long hair is not to make it grow faster but by RETAINING LENGTH. your hair could grow an inchan hour but it wont help if it keeps breaking off. Oil is used as a moisture sealant. So be sure to moisturize your hair first, then put oil on it. and remeber a little oil goes a long way. this is what i use as a moisturizer:
      just take some cheap conditioner, whatever you like. I use Suave coconut conditioner cuz thats what i like. Put it in a spray bottle. Then add equal parts of conditioner and water in the bottle. Put in a tablespoon of olive oil or canola oil( i use both) cuz their cheap. Then add a couple of drops of the HOLLYWOOD BEAUTY tee tree oil (optional) to make it smell good. Shake it all up and spray throughout your hair or plob some in your hand and work through. Hope this helps!:)

  32. QUESTION:
    Hair products?
    Does anyone know of any great non-expensive hair care products for blacks(not always the most expensive is the best). Because at the moment I have relaxed hair, a short hair cut I've been trying growing out and my hair is limp with no body(cause I recently got it relaxed). Any suggestions.
    Also I use to use motions it was okay for a while.

    Also as a side note: does anyone know of any great websites I could find hairstyling tips for people with short haircuts growing out their hair.

    • ANSWER:
      I am black with relaxed hair. I really like the Cantu line of products. It's made with Shea Butter and they have some great leave ins to help with breakage. I also love their Daily Oil Moisturizer. My hair isn't relaxed stick straight and so it's curly when wet and the oil moisturizer is the only thing that keeps it from getting frizzy when it dries curly. Cantusheasoft.com

      I also really really really like Organic Root Stimulator hair care line. They have a replenishing conditioning pack that's amazing and very moisturizing. As well as their Hair Mayo which is great for damaged hair and breakage.

      P.S. Didn't realize folks were still using the word colored. Some folks might be offended by that. Next time try "friends of color."

  33. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to take care of black perm hair?
    My hair is naturally curly but straigth, it's past my shoulders but breaks easy. i need a good way to strengthen and treat my hair. i've heard that shampoos and conditioners containing alcohol, ammonium, sulfates, and lipids are bad for my hair texture, so i try not to use them. But it is almost impossible to find a product that doesn't contain them.

    Any tips or suggestions. Your answers are greatly appreciated. God Bless!!!

    • ANSWER:
      RELAXED HAIR:
      1. It doesn't have the tighter texture of natural hair but it also isn't straight hair. Is is essentially damaged and that's the one thing you have to remember about it. It needs protein treatments (like Aphogee 2 step treatment) and gentle treatment. Otherwise breakage causes it not to grow. [youtube.com, longhaircareforum.com]

      BREAKAGE SOLUTIONS:
      The myth that kinky hair doesn't grow needs to be dispeled. What keeps it from gowing very often is damage to strands which causes breakage. Relaxers weaken hair but even if you have natural hair our strands are thinner than other races and often tangle together causing breakage. If you baby the ends your hair will grow. Personally I am transitioning from a relaxer. But whether natural or relaxed some of the same principles apply. [naturallycurly.com]

      1. Condition after every time you wash. I like Pantene Relaxed and Natural. It has a lot of slip so detangling is a breeze.

      2. Find out what ingredients in hair products are harmful. Many are drying and silicones and sulfates are potentially damaging becuase they are harder to get out of curly hair than straight hair=product buildup=dry fragile hair. Biracialhair.org has a great ingredient dictionary. STOP using grease if you still do. This plogs pores and can stunt growth.

      3. Only detangle hair when it is loaded with conditioner and preferably one with a lot of slip. Use fingers or a wide tooth comb. Brush sparingly.

      4. Recognize what causes breakage. Unhealthy hair is the main culprit but rough fabrics, heat, dry hair, brushing, rough detangling, coloring, repetitive styling can make situation worse. Always wear a satin cap to bed and sleep on satin pillowcase. Limit chemicals in your hair is you put them in at all. And don't do the same style every day. [curlynikki.com]

      5. Deep condition. This is different than regular conditioning. It is more beneficial to hair as it can penetrate deeper into strands. It can be used with heat which helps moisture sink into strands better.[curlynikki.com, longhairecareforum.com, nappturality.com]

      6. If your hair is relaxed hair you must recognize that the bonds of the hair are broken to make it straight and it is essentially damaged hair. Deep condition regularly, do protein treatments and just use a good leave in conditioner as well as all of the above.

      7. Do protective styles like buns, braids, and twists. A protective style is one that protects ends and is low manipulation.

      To find out if your hair is healthy there are 3 easy tests.

      1. Hold a strand between your hands and pull. If it snaps dully without stretching at all, you have a moisture problem. Do deep conditioning treatments. If it stretches really long without a pop you have a protein problem. You need to do more protein treatments. The perfect balance is a hair strand that stretches a little and breaks with a loud pop.

      2. You can also tell if your hair is not getting enough moisture. Put a strand in a bowl of water. If it floats, your good, if it sinks right away that means it's too porous and absorbs water too quickly becuase it's dry. Of course as I've explained "dry" hair is not really "dry" it just means the outer layer is standing up and the water can fill into the inner layer of the strand (like a sponge) pulling the hair down into the water. You need to condition everytime you shampoo, apply a leave in conditioner before straightening and DC every two weeks or so.

      3. Simple: split ends. End of the hair strand looks like a Y. If you do not get these trimmed immediately they can move up the shaft. Visible sign of damaged hair and simplest test.

      Once you know if your hair is healthy or not you can go from there. Go to the below websites.

  34. QUESTION:
    Black Hair Care Advice?
    I've always had very thin, short and unhealthy hair and has never had anyone to help me take care of it.Now I'm 17 and I am finally trying to take care of my hair but I don't know how to. My hair is short, dry, very brittle and very thin.I first permed my hair when I was about 8 or 9 years old and I still perm it every two months.Before I would just put it in a pony tail, cornrows, individual braids (human hair) and I now sow weave which has made my hair worst then before.I used every type of hair product and read learned that natural products should work good for my hair type, I haven't yet used natural products but I read that Carol's Daugter and Beauty 4 Ashes are my best choice.
    I want to know should I continue to get my hair washed and set once a week and perm it every two months using natural products or should I cut it off and grow out the perm by either continuing to sow in the weave or get individual braids and get them done over every two months and what type of hair?

    • ANSWER:
      I think you should buy motions CPR treatment and put it and and sit under a blowdryer for like 30 mins every two weeks and stop perming your hair just let the perm grow out and get you hair trimmed every two weeks. And if you want you hair to be straight like if you had a perm just flat iron it. Thats what i did but i usually keep it in individuals and it is growing and becoming more healthy. And another thing if you are going to get individuals dont let them stay in for more that 4 weeks

  35. QUESTION:
    Ethiopian/Black girls...about our hair...?
    I was wondering what line of hair care products works best for our hair (as far as keeping it soft, healthy, and moisturised, etc...)? i've heard a lot of Pantene and Garnier, but i was looking for more suggestions. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Never go for pantene!

      Go for black specialist hair products or salon brands. Like keratease and organic root stimulator. The trick with afro hair is to nourish it, not just moisturise it. Use a deep intensive conditioning treatment and mix with some pure oils such as coconut or avocado - (both super good for the health of the hair, avocado I believe is the only oil which is able to penetrate all shafts of the hair). Then wrap a warm towl around it, because the heat (it's more warmth actually. so don't worry, no damage done) so that the conditioner penetrate the hair more and lounge around for 30mins plus and rince out.

      Remember to keep the scalp moisturised though! Many with afro hair do not which leads to stunted hair grown, breakage at roots and itchy scalp.

    But a friend who's an amateur photographer wants to use my dog in a few photoshoots, but wants him to resemble a fox. I would need black dye on his paws and back of the ears since he's already orange/white.
    There's some trend going around with people having fox tails as an accessory. And she want's to fight against it and doesn't have an actual fox.

    I need to know about the best natural hair care products for african (black) hair.

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard of it but to the best of my knowledge it isn't available in the USA. I believe it is sold in South Africa and maybe neighboring countries. I haven't heard much of a rave of it since it isn't available stateside. But IMO the best natural hair products for Black/African hair is the ones you make yourself from plants, like shea butter (too heavy IMO), olive oil or butter (I love products that contains it, even the oil), jojoba oil (very light oil for those with fine hair), henna, neem, tea tree oil, coconut oil, amla oil, bhrinja (misspelled) oil, etc. Check out motowngirl.com for some ideas.

    How should I style my natural African hair?
    I'm 100% black (to my knowledge) with super coily hair and angular kinks closer to my scalp. What type of styles and hair care products would work best with this type of hair? I'm thinking of getting a break from braids and going natural for a good while.
    I'm a girl, by the way, and I don't wan't a seventy style fro or straightened hair.

    • ANSWER:
      The key is to work with your particular texture of hair, and don't spend time trying to make it form into patterns it won't. That's step #1. Get a good shampoo, I reccommend the Khoret Amen Sea Moss shampoo from Carol's Daughter (Carolsdaughter.com or google it). It does not dry the hair and leaves is rich and soft (you won't believe it the first time you try it.) Try other things from her line, because they are made for natural hair. Also, I reccommend a leave in conditioner, and also a good oil to leave in, such as Coconut oil. A good very cheap conditioner is Suave--the Coconut flavor. Do NOT use petroleum based oils, only natural oils such as coconut, jojoba, almond because these can be absorbed by your hair. No gel, as it dries and strips, unless you use IC Aloe gel with no alcohol.
      As for styling, just let it fly free. If it tends to be round, just make sure you pat it down so it's round. Healthy, shiny hair will be more important than the style so much. Just accentuate your natural beauty with beautiful flowers or pins, maybe consider herbal or henna coloring or even a cellophane rinse for added pizzazz. Remember; no alcohol products, no petroleum based products, and try to get products without Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (this is what causes shampoos and conditioners to foam; it is highly stripping and drying and your hair will be healthier without it.)

  47. QUESTION:
    Hair care for black women???
    I am trying to stop my hair from breaking off from being so dry and make it grow longer and healthier. Will greasing my scalp do the trick? If so how often should I and what product would be the best for highlighted fine thin hair?

    • ANSWER:
      greasing your scalp is never the trick, you should never use grease on your hair or scalp. it clogs the hair follicles and actually stunts hair growth.
      i answered a question similar to this a few days ago so im going to copy my answer here:

      assuming that you have relaxed hair, shampoo and deep condition with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Air dry, to lock in moisture and prevent breakage, then apply a light scalp oil to your scalp and a moisturizer to your strands. On the days your not washing either spray with a light leave in conditioner every other day or apply a light moisturizer every day. Try not to comb so often also, that aids in the snapping of hair.
      you should also wear your hair in protective styles, any style that needs little to no combing or brushing and keeps the ends of your hair off of your clothes.
      You don't have to clip your ends every month if its healthy, that will just make your shorter, hair only grows about 1/2 an inch per month, and if you cut it every month then it results in negative hair growth. Your hair will be shoulder length forever. If you keep up with your hair and get it healthy you only have to cut it once every 3 months, sometimes i only cut twice a year, and my hair is just fine.

      shampoos:
      creme of nature ultra moisturizing
      neutrogena triple moisture shampoo(this is supposedly the better of the two)

      conditioner
      aubrey organics (by far the best!)
      olive replenishing pak (mixed with olive oil, sweet almond oil, and tea tree oil)
      creme of nature
      neutrogena triple moisture

      scalp oil:
      ginseng wonder 8 oil (this works well for my hair, i don't know about everyone elses though.)

      you should also get a fotki.com account, they're free and they have a lot women who are growing their relaxed and natural hair out.

      good luck.

  48. QUESTION:
    Which products are best to used on relaxed/permed hair?
    i'm getting my hair (currently short and kinky , black girl hair ;) ) relaxed and i want to be able to take care of it. what kind of products should i use w/ what ingredients? (shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner, etc)

    right now i think that mixed chick's leave in deep conditioner might be best, but are there any other better options for leave in deep-conditioners?

    • ANSWER:
      I highly, highly recommend Carol's Daughter products for relaxed hair.
      All of their products are all natural and that's the best possible thing for permed hair.
      Just use their stuff like you would normal shampoos. It'll work. Trust me.

      It's a little on the pricey side, but there is a HUGE difference between drugstore and specialty store hair care products. (Sorry for stating the obvious...)
      There are Carol's Daughter shops all over the USA but if you live anywhere else, then you'll have to resort to online shopping.

    What is a BETTER leave-in conditioner than No-Frizz, for increasingly dry/frizzy hair in a humid environment?
    I have naturally have wavy/curl hair, perhaps 2c/3a, and consider myself white. If properly moisturized with something like No-Frizz leave-in (the best product I've tried yet) it forms very soft curls and locks - but even then develops a layer of frizz hairs on top! Nowadays I basically get a tumbleweed afro if I let it go a few days on it's own, whereas this never really happened before.

    I've long used John Freida's The Conditioner, and that worked great for a couple years. No frizz and total softness. However, it eventually stopped working like it used to earlier this year and my hair frizzed up all the time and got significantly dryer. Now not even the most expensive ones I've used are working to my satisfaction. When desperate I even tried a hot oil treatment (olive/canola/jojoba) and continually removing split ends, but it led to no improvement.

    I want to make a purchase of a product that has worked unconditionally fabulous for someone. I would prefer something more effective than No-Frizz and more importantly available in a larger supply. No Frizz was + for 4ounces, and I have A LOT of hair so I would prefer something more economical, but I would be willing to spend many times more for a larger bottle of something in the epic-tier. Also I am wondering if perhaps I should look into black hair care products if they might work better for a lesser cost (I would probably be the whitest kid you know but I have very distant West African ancestry, not that it matters hair-wise). Thanks so much Y!A.

  2. QUESTION:
    Healthy Hair?
    I heard that washing your hair every day isn't healthy, but if I don't wash it very day my hair gets very greasy. What should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      --Well, I've heard that it is bad to wash it everyday because the hair loses oils and moisture... sometimes leading to a dry scalp... personaly I dont wash my hair once or twice in a week.

      --It also Depends on your hair type and if you wear caps or sweat a lot. If you have oily hair, washing it everyday will work the oil glands and keep it oily. If your hair is dry, washing it everyday can keep it dry. Use a salon shampoo that is pH balanced and right for your type of hair. Check with your stylist for the best. Salon shampoos and conditioners can cost a little more but they are best for your hair.

      --Wash your hair everyday!! It's healthy because it cleans your hair. But dont wash it more than once a day, because the oils in your hair will get washed out making your hair dry!

      If you dont want your hair to get greasy, then wash your hair everday and make sure to use the right shampoo, conditioner, oil, and anti-frizz creme! Those are all the hair products I use and i always get compliments on my hair! If you follow my tips, you will get as many compliments too!

      **Stay fresh and clean**

      Happy grooming! :)

  3. QUESTION:
    Healthy hair?
    What's considered healthy hair? I mean like I just want to know 'cause it's been a year since my hair used to be really short and I'd spike it with gel and since it's been a year it's the length to my chin, but it's not all even yet. Since it feels like it's been a while since my hair has been long I was wondering if it was healthy?

    • ANSWER:
      Healthy hair can be natural or chemically treated. Do you use professional products? If not you could have a build up on your hair. Do you use a deep conditioner? Do you have curly hair, it is naturally more dry. Do over process your hair (colours/perms), if yes it could be more dry. I am a hair stylist and it would be hard to say without seeing/touching your hair, I suggest you go to a hair salon and ask what they think and recommend! If you stretch a hair shaft (while wet) and it is able to stretch about 50% AND return to normal, your hair is in good shape.

  4. QUESTION:
    What are some inexpensive hair products that will keep my hair healthy?
    I have always had very healthy hair and I have only dyed it a few times. I now prefer to leave it at it's natural color as dyes are not good for your hair. My main concern is that, while my hair is healthy, my sister's hair is not and she has never dyed her hair. We are both looking for products that can promote healthy hair and keep out hair healthy. Does anyone know of any inexpensive products that do this?

    • ANSWER:
      You do not have to use expensive products to keep your hair healthy.
      Healthy hair starts with a good hygien of life.

      Like everything else about true, lasting beauty, healthy hair begins within your body. Start with your diet. Include lots of green leafy vegetables and sweet juicy fruits. Dairy products such as milk and fresh yogurt will also help. Fresh coconut is also considered excellent "hair food" – sprinkle grated coconut over salads, diced fresh fruit, or rice.

      Cut down on refined, processed and canned foods. Ice-cold beverages also hamper the process of digestion and assimilation of nutrients.

      Cooking with certain spices adds flavor to your food and provides nourishment for your hair. Cumin, turmeric and black pepper are some "hair-friendly" spices. Add a healthy pinch of each to single-portion soups and stews as they are cooking.

      Stress can be seriously injurious to long-term health and color of hair. Try and manage your time and tasks to minimize time-related pressures. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation. Get adequate, good quality sleep to help the natural process of rejuvenation.

      Stay away from harsh chemical topical products that can damage hair over time. Look for gentle, natural cleansers and conditioners, especially if you wash your hair more than three times a week. Shampoos and conditioners that contain nourishing botanicals are even better. Read labels carefully – sometimes, products that say "herbal" or "natural" can include no-no chemicals.

      A warm oil scalp massage two or three times a week will help stimulate and moisturize the scalp. You can use good quality coconut, almond or olive oil. Apply some mildly warmed oil to your hair and gently massage into your scalp evenly with your fingertips. Leave on overnight if you can, if not, leave on for at least an hour or two, then get it out by shampooing your hair. The scalp massage helps you relax and aids sound sleep as well.

      Never attack wet hair with a brush, no matter how rushed for time you are. Tangles in wet hair are best removed with a wide-toothed comb. Use a wooden comb if you can find one; it won't generate static electricity. Excessive blow-drying can damage hair in the long-term, making it brittle and causing split ends. If you can, let your hair dry naturally, then brush into place.

      Last, but not least, brushing your hair regularly to stimulate the scalp will keep it looking healthy and lustrous. Brush each night in all directions in turn – left to right, right to left, front to back and back to front Use smooth long strokes from scalp to hair-tips.

      All the best!

  5. QUESTION:
    What can i do to start growing healthy long hair?
    I would lik to grow long, silky and healthy hair. I always keep my hair at slightly longer then shoulder length. When I started to let it grow longer, hair would start to fall. by the time i had them at my waist, my hair shape would be V-shaped, unhealthy and hair become lesser.

    I would lik to grow healthy long hair lik any other gals, please let me noe what shd i do to start growing my hair healthy so that my hair would not start falling?

    I love any methods, vitamins, hair pdts and any other formulas.
    I did not dye my hair. wat does healthy diet means? I eat veg, white meat, red meat and fruits daily. Lesser meat and more veg and meat. I mean my hair is thinning whn my hair get longer.

    • ANSWER:
      The longer your hair is, the ‘older’ the ends of it are. Everyday, wear and tear, such as sun, wind, blow drying, curling irons and other heat styling tools, even shampooing and brushing, all work together to gradually erode each hair. This eventually causes split ends that will, in turn, result in the hair breaking off. Don't believe in that myth of the 100 stokes a day. Just brush enough to distribute the oil from your scalp to the reswt of your hair.

      Hair grows at a different rate for each person. The best way to keep your growing strong is to keep it healthy and eat a good healthy diet as well. Food plays a big part in your skin and hair growth. And don't believe the empty promises of shampoos and supplements for faster hair growth.

      Here are some hair growing tips:

      Eliminate or cut back on smoking, caffeine and carbonated sodas which weaken the body and block maximum hair growing potential.
      Eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of good protein, vitamins and minerals, specially iron. Try fish, poulty without skin, lean beef, eggs, and dairy products.
      Plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and beans.
      Avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat.
      Treat your hair like a piece of fine old lace. Treat it carefully avoiding any unnecessary brushing, combing or handling.
      Avoid use of hot water, hot blow dryers or other hair care tools that may stress the hair.
      Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles.
      Do a series of ongoing hot oil treatments to protect the hair's shaft.
      Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier.
      Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair
      Avoid stress!
      If any of these tips work for you consult a dematologist you might have a condition that it makes your hair stop growing or to fall.

  6. QUESTION:
    Healthy hair is grown from inside out. What are the best foods for hair?
    I know hair grows from the scalp, duh, but I also know what you eat determines alot how healthy your hair and scalp is. What are the best foods, fats, veggies etc for promoting healthy hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Beef
      If you don't have high cholesterol, Thompson recommends eating red meat twice a week for optimal hair health. Not only does beef have the protein you need, but also B vitamins, iron, and zinc, important minerals for healthy hair.

      Eggs or Egg Whites
      Vegetarian? Can't eat red meat for health reasons? Then egg whites are the way to go. "If you can't eat an animal protein, egg whites are the next best thing," says Thompson. "Their value is underestimated in our society."

      Brown Short-Grain Rice
      You should have complex carbohydrates, which feed you energy over a longer period of time than refined carbohydrates, with your protein source at meals. Brown short-grain rice is an ideal form. It's also a good source of B vitamins and some fiber.

      Cottage Cheese
      Try low-fat cottage cheese for a protein-packed breakfast or lunch on the go when you don't have time to make eggs. Top it with some fresh berries for an added serving of fruit. Plus, cottage cheese is also a good source of calcium.

      Bacon
      Although it's not a good food to eat if you're trying to lose weight, eating a normal serving of bacon for extra B vitamins, zinc, and protein.

      Salmon
      Try it smoked or fresh at breakfast, lunch, or dinner for a good dose of protein along with B vitamins, including B12, and other vitamins and minerals.

  7. QUESTION:
    What is the best product for healthy hair?
    Okay, so I really really really want long hair! But the thing is I have really thick curly hair, and my ends are just horrible. I want something that will smooth out my hair, repair my ends and add tons of moisture to my hair. If you could, list a shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner/ cream, and something to protect my hair from heat damage. I straighten my hair. Umm I just want to grow my hair the healthy way, without cutting it. Its already a little more than a tad below shoulder length. Ten points to whoever gives me the best advice!

    • ANSWER:
      You said your hair was thick and curly so you will want to use products specially for your hair type. If you want long hair then you must keep the hair that is on your head healthy. Many people who want long hair forego getting haircuts. Well, if you have split ends, they will just keep splitting up the hair shaft and break ofr. Getting tiny trims every couple of months will help a lot!

      For products that will help your hair type's condition and allow for maximum growth, I would suggest the Graham Webb line of hair products. The ones that would be perfect for your hair are the Heat Response in Graham Webb. They are good if you have thick or dry hair and still need to straighten it.

      You didn't mention if you straighten your hair temporarily with an iron or if you do it chemically. I will tell you that chemical straighteners are very caustic and damaging so you will want to totally condition and use good salon products. If you do it temporarily then the Heat Response line is good for protecting your hair while you do that.

      Good luck!

    How do I keep my hair growing healthy?
    I cut my hair about 2 months ago. I straightened it few times but then it's been a month that I didn't straighten my hair. Instead I use Tresemme hair mousse to keep my hair looking good. I am doing this so I will have my hair grow fast and healthy. But when it gets longer, i am planning to straighten it sometimes. I mean is it better to use mousse instead of straightening it or mousse is bad too? And what kind of shampoo and conditioner should I use for healthier hair. Tell me some good product names I can use for healthy hair. THX

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing you can do for your hair is to know what your putting in it your proberley putting so many harmful chemicals in it and dont even know it for example

      shampoos are horrible for your hair they ruin hair they strip the natural oils out of your hair and damages it then conditioner just covers up the damage, the shampoos we use daily are just detergent and water and the rest is harmful chemicals go to the skin database you can type in any product or ingrediant and it will give you a score on how harmful it is.

      Use a soap based shampoo and use a vinegar rinse on your hair instead of a conditioner which just covers up the damage dosnt help it. look it up on google do research.

      organic virgin coconut oil is great for hair you can buy a big jar from ebay for 5pound that will last for ages, it truly is a miracle product, itrs great for skin too.

      jojoba oil is great for hair too, also herbal tea is great.

      dont use products on your hair they just cover up the damage and cause more damage so you need to buy more products please dont be fooled.

      when you sleep at night if you can wrap your hair in a silk scarf

      when washing hair(you should wash your hair about 3 times a week doing more often just puts "fake" oils in your hair and when you stop washing it reguarly it gets greasy quicker and then its just a cycle)alternate between hot and cold water

      eat healthy remember whatever you put IN and ON your body shows in your eyes hair nails and skin, the results from "big brand" products just coat your hair and skin with products that might seem to work but infact just do more damage in the long run. peace and please the best thing you can do for your hair and body is to give it the best things and thats not a 30pound "miracle shampoo" its natural pure ingrdiants that have the best benefits totally safe and great results in hair and skin.

    • ANSWER:
      http://www.hairrevenge.com/2011/08/how-prenatal-vitamins-help-your-hair/

      Biotin definitely works. But make sure to take a Multivitamin as well.
      You can deep condition and use Hot oil treatments with every day things from Home. Heat Olive Oil and a cheap conditioner on medium and apply for 10 minutes. or apply a mixture of eggs and mayo for 5 minutes and wash out. Most of all, if you are going to flat iron use a protective spray and run over the area One time only, then move on to another section of hair!

  14. QUESTION:
    What are some healthy products for my hair from the drugstore?
    Right now I am using the following:
    Pantene Mousse
    Pantene Detangler
    Samy Heat Protectent
    Aussie Leave in Conditioner
    Pantene Hairspray (Don't use often)

    So i know that most drugstore hair products won't be as healthy as the expensive ones online but I dont have the money to afford all that so I just want some cheap healthy hair products from the drugstore.
    What brand do you think is the healthiest for my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      I've used the same drugstore hair products for over 4 decades.

      Any product containing gel or alcohol, is drying to the hair.
      Heat protectant does NOT protect hair 100%. Like sunscreen, you still get sunburned. Same with hair.

      If you're using heating tools to style your hair, THAT'S worst than any of the products you mentioned, next to hair dyes & relaxers, which can also cause cancer. All of the three, can also cause hair from not growing normally, stopped from growing, or hair loss.

      The hair industry is a billion dollar business, they sell products that cleans & condition the hair. They also sell products that damage and causes hair loss. They also DO NOT give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to 'abuse'.

      Drugstore, or the most expensive products, doesn't matter, they are all damaging to the hair. They are not made of glue, to fix, reverse, prevent hair from getting damaged.

      I've responded to many girls (guys now too) under 15 experiencing in hair loss since 2009, due to hair straightening, relaxers and hair dyes. Women 60-90 have those same symptoms but it took them years to get there. But for 15 & under, giving advice here? They can't predict the future of their hairs, until they're in their 30's, but 15 & under with hair loss? C'mon! I've responded 7 in 2 hours 9-3-10, (before school started) 4 in 1hour 3-5-11 alone. 3 in 1hr. 8-8-11

      To have healthy hair, you need: good genes, good hair care & healthy foods from Mother Nature. When you're polluting your hair with hair products, that's NOT healthy for you & your hair.

  16. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to maintain healthy male hair?
    I am a 22 year old male, i usually use wax in my hair and shampoo and condition everyday because I use product in my hair. However i have read that shampoo and conditioner is bad if done every day and that i should take one day off in between both.

    I'm not sure what is good because i use a hair wax, and i'm afraid that if i just rinse it won't get all of it out. What is the best way for me to maintain healthy hair?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no right way for everyone. If you feel comfortable washing your hair everyday and its not drying it out or giving you any breakage then you are ok.

      If you use product in your hair then i would for sure wash it, you don't want a build up of stuff. Try using a less harsh shampoo if it is drying it out.

      To maintain healthy your, try and use natural products and stay away from harsh chemicals.

    How to keep your colored hair super healthy?
    I'm 14 , i live in a hot country and i have relatively healthy hair that i treat with deep conditioners. I dye my hair darker about every 2 months or less. If i continue dying how can i keep my hair healthy or healthier?

    • ANSWER:
      Use shampoo and conditioner that is designed for color treated hair. Since your hair is already dark, if you use the right shampoo and conditioner it shouldn't fade too much. So, then you can just put the new dye only on your roots and then when you have about 5 minutes of processing time left work it through to the ends. That way your ends will get less damaged and won't turn super dark from re-dying them so many times. Also, try to limit or eliminate your use of heat styling tools like hair dryers, flat irons, curling irons etc. If you do all of that you should be fine.

      To grow it strong & healthy, take a 100% daily vitamin pill everyday & drink lots of water. Split ends are caused by excessive use of heat tools & drying hair products & dyes, so avoid heat as much as possible, do deep conditioning & dont dye your hair, if you must do a semi permanent dye which is less damaging.

  22. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to get a healthy scalp for better hair growth?
    I know the secret to healthy hair is proper nutriton and scalp stimulating. I read that what you eat is essential to healthy scalp and hair. What is the secret to great hair? I have received alot of answers from other Yahoo users, just looking for more suggestions from those of you out there who have great hair! Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      You want to exfoliate your scalp.... Try Nioxin. It's a great product and it's easy. You shampoo, condition, and put a scalp treatment on at the roots. The idea behind the line is for people who are losing their hair to exfoliate and clear out their hair follicles. It works really well for dandruff too. You can get it at a lot of salons.

  23. QUESTION:
    What are some tips to really healthy hair?
    I want to grow my hair out as soon as possible.
    I'm wanting to grow it about...6 inches. So, that'll most likely take about a year, right?
    So, what are your tips for really healthy hair? So that I can grow it out as soon as possible!
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Try to wash your hair only every other day. This will help keep a good amount of natural oils in your hair and keep it healthy. If it seems a little oily on the second day, dust a little baby powder on it.

      Use good shampoo and conditioner and deep condition it once a week or so. The definition of "good" really depends on your hair. Some of the brands that claim to be equal to salon (Suave, Tresseme, one other I can't remember) don't do well in my hair, but Panteen Pro V and Garnie are great for me.

      There are numerous home treatments for your hair, like avocado, hot oil, honey, egg, experiment and see what works best for you.

      Try to limit the amount of styling you do to your hair (product, heat especially). This and keeping your hair well trimmed and free of split ends will help maintain the strength of your hair. Also, avoid over brushing (or just agressive brushing).

      There's a link in the source box for more tips. Good luck, I've had super long (between breastline and waist) hair for years, and I'm cutting ten inches off for Locks of Love soon, so I'll be using these too.

  24. QUESTION:
    How to grow my hair long, thick, and healthy like Indian women?
    Indian women (from India) have such long, thick, and healthy hair, I have always wondered how they get it that way.

    Questions: What do they use on their hair?
    What do they eat?
    What would I need to do in order to grow out my shoulder length hair? (my hair literally looks exactly like my yahoo avatars hair)

    • ANSWER:

  25. QUESTION:
    What is the best natural way to get long healthy hair ?
    I have long to medium length hair but it is not very healthy. In an effort to get it to be long I have not cut it so there are some split ends etc. I would love long healthy, shiny, full of volume, hair. Is there any natural methods or rinses that i can wash my hair with to make that happen?

    • ANSWER:
      In order to get long and healthy hair, I recommend deep conditioning treatments and regular trimming. Since you said you haven't cut it, you may need to trim your hair; every 6-8 weeks is good for trimming times. As for other methods to get long, healthy hair, do weekly deep conditioning treatments. Since you want something natural, I'd recommend you check out NaturallyCurly.com's Hair Recipe section to find at home, do it yourself conditioning treatments. Here's the link: http://www.naturallycurly.com/recipes. I hope this helps!

  26. QUESTION:
    What is the best shampoo and conditioner to get shiny, healthy hair?
    I have really long hair that is somewhat frizzy, majorly damanged, and very dry. I have tried both herbal essences and pantene shampoo and conditioner, and neither have worked for me. I straighten my hair almost everyday and color it alot, which causes the damage to my hair. I'm just wondering what is the best shampoo and conditioner to get shiny, smooth, and healthy hair? also something cheap like around 3-8 dollars, and please don't say to stop coloring/straightening my hair.

    • ANSWER:
      L'oreal Nutri Gloss, i use it and my hair is so shiny now, i have frizzy hair as well but after i straighten it's so glossy!

  27. QUESTION:
    What is the best natural shampoo/conditioner for healthy hair, and why?
    Couple of questions. After I've learned about all the harsh chemicals in most shampoos and conditioners, like sodium lauryl sulfate and proplylene glycol, I've been on a mission to find good shampoos with natural ingredients. Then I do my research and some say that all those natural ingredients don't do much either as your hair doesn't "eat" and the herbal blends that supposedly nourish your hair just wash off. Then I find that most shampoo and conditioner ingredients, with or without harsh chemicals, have basically the same ingredients as each other. So basically everything is just damn marketing and propaganda and I don't know what to believe. So what then makes the difference between conditioner and shampoo? So what magical concoction honestly make your hair healthy? Or does it all depend on the type of food you put in your body?

    • ANSWER:
      Yep. Its the food you eat and your lifestyle All the potions and lotions alone arnt going to live up to the promises of the folk that make this stuff. I have beautiful {not skiting} long black with a sprinkle of silver bits due to the fact that Im over 50. Its really thick strong and shiney.I dont believe in washing my hair every day, but once every 8 days. I dont believe in brushing the hell out of it.
      Im lucky to have been born with it.

  28. QUESTION:
    What is a good way to maintain healthy hair?
    I have brown, thick hair, that falls about 3 inches past my shoulder. I am trying to find ways to make my hair seem less thick, and to add a "healthy glow" to it.

    • ANSWER:
      to make it seem less thick,
      i'd say strighten it,
      and use some kind of frizz serum,
      even if you don't have frizz.
      this will add the glow your talking about,
      and make your hair smoother and thinner.
      a few of my favorites are John Freida Frizz Ease, and Paul Mittchell Skinny Serum.

      also,
      when you use conditioner,
      make sure your hair is only damp,
      and not wet like it would be when you put on shampoo.
      ring it out first,
      this makes your hair absorb the product better.

  29. QUESTION:
    Can you still grow healthy hair and color it at the same time?
    I have been coloring my hair for almost 10 years. My natural hair color is a dirty blonde but I color it blonde every 6-7 weeks. Not playboy blonde but pretty blonde for the summer. I want to grow long healthy hair for my wedding next March so I was thinking of going back natural but I'm afraid if I go back natural ill hate the color.

    What should I do? Is there a color that I can still use to keep it healthy? Color it but not as blonde, but will it still be healthy?

    • ANSWER:
      Try the Natural Instincts line by Clairol (if you dye your hair yourself). It keeps it healthy.

  30. QUESTION:
    What are your top tips on getting nice healthy hair?
    I don't really like my hair. I think It's dull and It easily gets tuggy.
    Does anyone have any good tips on getting nice healthy hair?
    and how to make it shine?

    • ANSWER:
      For really shiny, glossy hair, you need to make sure you wash your hair every 2-3 days.

      When using shampoo make sure you put it in the roots. You also need to make sure you wash it all out.

      When using conditioner, use it on the main part of the hair. I use a comb when i am washing my hair with the conditioner, this makes it shine more.

      Good luck!

  31. QUESTION:
    What hair product did you use to get beautiful healthy hair?
    You may have seen my previous post about how my hair is dead straight and lifeless and what I can do to get more body and texture.

    Now I'm wondering if it's all about me getting really healthy hair - because I've just never cared before. I figured it's the one thing you can neglect and not end up sick or dead!

    So! My question is, what product(s) do you use on your hair to make them super healthy and gorgeous. Don't care if they're expensive.

    I'm in Australia.

    • ANSWER:
      depends on if it's chemically treated.. dyed, bleached etc. I adore Redken Extreme products if you have used chemicals on your hair.. otherwise you can try the BodyGlam line from them.. goodluck!

  32. QUESTION:

    I take a daily multivitamin already and am looking to add a little extra for my hair, skin, and nails.

    I have heard folic acid tablets are good for that, or omega 3 fish oil tablets. I know they also sell packages that are specifically formulated for healthy skin, nails, and hair but of course they are more expensive and i dont even know if they are safe to take daily WITh my multivitamin.

  33. QUESTION:
    How to achieve healthy hair? Get rid of split ends?
    Ok so my hair is quite thin, but atm im taking iron tablets which im hoping it will thicken. I have a lot of split ends and I was just wondering apart from having my hair cut every so often, what else I can do to get healthy hair? I do also use a good heat protection on my hair.. and i dont straighten it.

    • ANSWER:
      Trim every 6 weeks like clockwork (not every so often ;) ) get 1/4 inch trimmed.
      At your trim get a Protein conditioning treatment (I go to Fantastic Sams, they have a Chi treatment I like).
      Sleep with a deep conditioner on your hair once a week with a towel wrapped around your head and rinse it out in the morning. I like Organics Moroccan Argan Oil (and it smells so delish).
      Get a sateen pillow case, it is more gentle on your hair.
      Don't use really hot water on your hair, rinse with cool water to seal the cuticle.
      Don't wash your hair every day, but every other.
      Use a shampoo without SLS and sodium (Loreal and Organics are two brands I use that you can get at a drugstore or supermarket).
      Expensive: get a water filter for your shower head to remove the harsh chemicals out of the water because they really do havoc on your hair (and skin).

  34. QUESTION:
    What food should I eat to have healthy hair?
    What are some of the best foods for your hair?

    I would like to grow my hair long so I need to make my hair healthy and strong. What food or foods in particular should I eat every day that will help me?

    Just wondering, I eat a handful of walnuts and almonds every day, along with yougurt and 2 cups of reen tea. Does this help my skin or hair at all?

    • ANSWER:
      To answer your question:

      A diet consisting of high vitamins and protein is best for your hair, stay away from fatty,greasy and processed foods.

      The best things you can do for your hair:

      One of the most important things is a 6 -12 week trim depending on how much heat you use. Every day? I would do a small trim every 4 weeks. I don't iron my hair and only blow dry a couple times a week so I trim every 2-3 months. I always use heat protector when styling and even on days I don't. The sun can damage your hair as well. When you blow dry, wait until your hair is just damp..then top it off to add style and body. Also before you finish drying, turn your dryer to cool. This will close your hair follicles to protect them. Use some sort of serum on your ends to replace moisture lost. Heat protector does not keep your hair from getting split ends or from becoming dry, it only helps. We use sun block but we still get a tan right? Same applies. I take hair vitamins for health and growth but I am very picky about my hair and most are not. The only other advice I can give is to never brush your hair when its wet, You will break it. Use conditioner, while its still in comb through it with a big tooth comb. I do all this and my hair is very healthy. I know you didn't ask all this but just thought it could be helpful

  38. QUESTION:
    How can I get healthy hair again?
    I use to have hair down to the small of my back that was super healthy. I got into the habit of dying my hair random colors which didn't really seem to cause too much damage, but then I decided I wanted the colors in my hair to be brighter so I bleached a portion of it. I hate how it feels and at this point I just want ALL of my natural hair back. Any tips?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no way to have healthy hair again. In fact, your hair wasn't healthy to begin with. As soon as hair pokes out of the follicle and is hit by ANYTHING (heat, hands, combs, air, heat) it is no longer healthy merely "well preserved."

      Sound to me like you over processed your hair. You can maintain it with protein treatments and moisturizing agents but sooner or later you have to get rid of it because protein treatment won't fix wispy dead ends (which isn't the ideal beauty or hair standard.)

      Well known protein treatments are:
      Dudley's DRC 28 and Aphogee 2 step. Dudley's DRC 28 is the strongest protein treatment on the market right now. Yes, it's stronger than Aphogee 2 step. (And that's strong stuff.)

      Hopefully this helped.

  39. QUESTION:
    How can I get smooth healthy hair?
    I have hair that's pretty long, almost half way down my back. My hair is naturally straight, but since I got layers its become quite wavy. I want my hair straight so I straighten it everyday, but my hair is becoming dry and gross. What are some products or tips to keep my hair healthy and straight?

    • ANSWER:
      switch up your shampoos and conditioners once in a while and use a heat-protecting spray. the CHI such as the Iron-guard spray works really well and keeps my hair super soft.

  40. QUESTION:
    How to grow long healthy hair?
    I want to grow my hair about three inches by the summer. My hair is fine and only damaged a little, but i blow dry and straighten it everyday. What can i do to make it healthy and make it grow a bit faster? I hear that taking vitamins helps this, and putting vaseline in your hair? I need to wash my hair everyday but is there a good shampoo i could use?

    • ANSWER:
      Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner bc hair that is moisturized is less likely to break. Taking occasional breaks from heat styling would help too. The vitamins zinc, biotin, and omega 3's help grow hair faster. I was told by a doctor. good luck :)

  41. QUESTION:
    what is the correct diet to have healthy hair. I have very frizzy and dull hair?
    please suggest some homemade remedies to have healthy and shiny hair. i have very dull hair after i went through the permanent straightening.

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair is damaged and if you want healthier hair you will have to cut it off and grow new locks. Hair is dead. And once it's damaged, it's damaged. Stop putting chemicals in your hair and let your hair be. Make sure that you have enough protein in your system (hair is made out of dead protein). Do a strand test. Pluck a strand of hair when it's wet. If it stretches, it's well conditioned. If it stretches and then snaps, you should anty-up on the moisture, but the protein is fine. If it just snaps, definitely cut back on the protein and moisturize like crazy. Deep condition with natural oils like olive oil, etc. I personally use olive oil since castor oil is stinky. What I do once a week is slather virgin olive oil (the one you buy from the supermarket) onto my hair when it's dry. Then I put it under a heating cap for 30 minutes. Remember, this is a must if you have dry, frizzy, damaged hair. After your time is up, wash out the olive oil. And remember to look for split-ends. Split-ends cannot be repaired, so if you find some make sure to cut them before they travel up to your root and break off your hair.

  42. QUESTION:

  44. QUESTION:
    How can I get my long hair healthy again?
    Over the past year i've had my brown hair highlight i'd say 3 if even 4 times, to blonde, it's absolutely dried out my once glossy healthy hair to straw, I straighten/blow dry it once a week and i'm intending to get low lights to try and bring me back to my original colour.
    Would it be best to get a toner in or have low lights to minimize re-growth and would this be as damaging as highlighting it?

    Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      I was in the same situation as you a few years ago - instead of sleek and silky, my hair looked like an unsightly bunch of straw. I was given Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner for christmas and I couldn't believe how it restored my hair - it was excellent and fully restored it back to the way it was. I FULLY recommend Paul Mitchell to you!

  45. QUESTION:
    What sort of foods are good for promoting healthy hair and nails?
    My hair has been dull and limp lately, and my nails are dry and splitting. I am sure something is missing from my diet because I have not had much time to prepare healthy meals lately.

    • ANSWER:
      Olive oil, avocado, fish oil and flaxseed oil are all good for hair. Also, B12 and zinc deficiency can cause hair to become dry and break.

  46. QUESTION:
    What are some good tips to maintain healthy hair?
    What are some things I can do, some that I should avoid & what are some great products or tricks for maintaining healthy hair?

    I want my hair to be soft, easy to untangle & keep that way. I want volume, frizz control, easy to manage on busy days, avoid dandruff?

    Note: I have shoulder length curly hair.!
    I like to straighten it often , specially my bangs!

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      For healthy and shiny hair, mash up an avocado, mix it with a tablespoon of olive oil, and rub it through you hair. Wash your hair after 15 minutes.

      Build hair protein and prevent hair loss by eating zinc. Good sources of zinc include meat and seafood.

      Your hair is weak when it's wet, so never brush you hair or rub your hair dry with a towel. Instead, blot the wetness out with a towel and fluff it with your fingers.

      Vitamin A keeps your scalp healthy. So snack on carrots, as they are healthy and full of vitamin A.
      (Vitamin A can also help your nails grow and be strong.)

      Vitamin E can make your hair shine. Good sources of vitamin E include: brown rice, nuts, wheat germ (eating wheat germ is also good for keeping your face clear of pimples), and leafy green vegetables.

      P.S. If you use any kind of gel for styling your hair then don't use it. Styling your hair with conditioner instead of gel is way more healthier for your hair and works well just like gel once the conditioner dries.

      I hope I was helpful. Enjoy =)

  47. QUESTION:
    How do grow long black healthy hair to or past your shoulders?
    Well I mean African American hair. But it just seems like my hair won't grow anymore but last i remembered my hair was at my neck so its still short and I've always wanted long healthy hair. What should I do..? (Oh I also have braids but when I take them down Im going to get a much needed perm).

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair is the most fragile of all hair types. They snap & break easily. So you need more TLCs than thin hair. No chemicals. No relaxers specially! No heating styling tools. Finger comb is best or use a wide tooth comb. Do what Oprah have been, going natural. Use oil or conditioner to keep them moisturized.

      Go to Afro-Amer website. They have tons of tips suggestion etc. just as long as you don't buy propagandas that promises this or that for your hair. They do more harm than good.

      Ex. of one relaxer: http://monicabtheorganicstylist.wordpress.com/tag/hair-relaxers/

      Keratin are not approved by the FDA. Visit their website & search for it in their web. If you're thinking about the Brazilian treatment, there's a danger about using formaldehyde, a chemical that causes cancer. The FDA does not restrict the use of that chemical in cosmetics.

      A hairstylist in Portland, Or. is blowing a whistle on the treatment.
      "A big red flag: About a month after she started using Brazilian Blowout on clients, Scrutton had the first nosebleed of her life."
      http://www.oregonlive.com/health/index.ssf/2010/10/
      after_hair_stylist_becomes_sus.html
      (Type it in if they moved the page. "After hairstylist becomes suspicious of Brazilian Blowout, tests find formaldehyde".
      At your nearest store, they now have AFRI-AMER hair products, what's good to sell there, is good for your hair type. They go through the same FDA regulations, even the so called 'natural' or 'organics', can do more harm than good for your hair. Like there are good mushrooms, there are also bad mushrooms. Go to the FDA website and learn more about 'natural'. In my email this week, there are about 15 recalls one of them is organic or natural product, recalled by the FDA. Just because they are natural, it doesn't mean you're safe. It is a billion dollar business, but they do not even give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss due to 'abuse'.

      Braiding your hair is stressful, and it is not going to help make your hair grow any longer or faster.

      Source(s):
      I used to own a website, and I did some research to help members with their hair, not about Afro, but I stumbled on their website that was informative.

    Are hair extensions only for people with hair that is not as long as they would like it to be? Or can they also enhance the attractiveness of people that already have long, healthy hair?

    • ANSWER:
      You can use it for any reason ranging from adding color w/o damage, making your hair longer, making your hair appear fuller thicker etc.

      here are some examples:

    • ANSWER:
      the best way is to keep them clean, eat a healthy and balanced diet and refrain from use of hairdryers. i don't know which hair type you have but use well known gels and hair products. if possible oil your hair once a month or get your head massaged.

Fast Hair Growth Shampoo

Herbal Rapid Hair Growth
A woman's hair is her crowning glory. For men, this is also true. In fact, an interest in healthy, thick and glistening hair is often apprehended by both men and women.So is it true that chemical substances can trigger one's hair to grow much more luxurious? There isa good quite a few chemicals that claim to do just that. But the thought of herbal rapid hair growth has been around for hundreds of years.

Herbal rapid hair growth was most likely responsible for your long, sleek black tresses on Queen Cleopatra given that shampoo companies did not really exist back then. However, what did really exist was an assortment of products that could be found anywhere.
Kelp, for example, becoming rich in iodine and other marine minerals, is still used right now in supplement form by girls who desire to maintain their hair (and nails) strong and healthy. Herbal remedies are well-known to those who do not wish to add a lot of chemicals to their environment, since chemicals have that capability to attain a saturation point and then leach into the skin, occasionally starting to be dangerous in the process.

Herbal rapid hair growth can be an outcome of something as uncomplicated as adding white vinegar towards the rinse right after shampooing as being a clarifier since it provides the hair shaft a chance to breathe. A lot of people believed that herbal rapid hair growth can be utilized by just avoiding pesticides and hormones in a one's diet and opting as a substitute for natural, pesticide-free provisions. Herbal rapid hair growth occasionally consists of using biotin-rich vitamins and supplements,which have been demonstrated to aid both males and females,grow longer, thicker hair. Biotin, a B complex vitamin, also known as B7, is a well-known additive to supplements that purport to become hair growth products.

Americans aren't generally deficient within this particular vitamin, as it is found inside a variety of foods-especially seafood. But it's rarely found as an additive in shampoos or other topical hair care goods given that B7 is not nicely absorbed to the skin. The important thing is that thorough research and education are continually a great concept where declarations of herbal rapid hair growth are concerned. Actually, wisdom will be the order of your day exactly where something is apprehensive.

    My hair's about 3 inches long, and I want it to grow faster so I bought some FASTShampoo & Conditioner. My sisters a pharmacist and said the ingrediants should work & it doesn't hurt to try. I haven't recieved it yet but
    1. has anyone ever used t? Did it work?
    2. How long did it take to work?

    It seems pretty promising from there Nisim site. Answers?!

    • ANSWER:
      one thing you should know is that all sites at some point or another make false reviews, how else would they get people to buy them. No a shampoo is not going to make your hair grow faster. About the only thing that helps growth is vegetal silica and biotine vitamins, take 3 of each daily

    thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      No, It won't make hair grow. You can't make your hair grow, and you can't make it grow faster. With ANYTHING.
      Keep it healthy and get a trim every 4-6 weeks to help it grow better.

      - A trim. Split ends do and will cause breakage, and unlike what some people who think they know everything on here say, The Split end will continue to go up the hair strand, eventually breaking off at ANY length(Flyaways you see sometimes? Yeah, Those are breakage.).

      - Deep Condition every so often

      -Clairfying every so often.

      -Try not to use heat or chemicals, If you do use heat use a good heat protector.

    Does FAST Hair Growth work?
    Well, I was looking around for products that will make your hair grow faster and I came across something called FAST Hair Growth Shampoo, Conditioner.

    Here is the link.

    http://www.fasthair.co.uk/

    I would like to know if this works and if it is worth spendning my money on it.

    • ANSWER:
      I have to say that I disagree with the previous respondent. Some one who cuts hair for a living cannot really call themselves an expert on human biology and chemical interactions within the body.

      There are a few very good products on the market that do aid hair growth, these include FAST hair growth, PilFood and Mane & Tail (actually for horses but used by a lot of people too).

      I know from personal experience that FAST does work and is one of the best hair products I have ever used.

      There are a lot of reasons behind slow growing hair and include poor diet, lack of excercise, stress, etc. Products like FAST hair growth and PilFood can help nourish the hair by utilising specific ingredients that aid and encourage healthy strong hair growth.

  15. QUESTION:
    Has anyone had any luck with faster hair growth using the mane n tail hair shampoo?
    I have always heard that using the mane n tail hair shampoo will help your hair grow faster
    Just to be clear I dont want anyone to think that I am saying that a shampoo can magically make your hair longer but was just wandering what luck people have had using it. Example: Making your hair more healthy so it is able to grow and not break off.
    http://www.youravon.com/ksmithey

    • ANSWER:
      Yes it actually did help mine when I used it. I got a bad haircut and wanted my hair to grow faster, it's not going to happen over night but it helps keep your hair healthy and strong which is ideal for growing hair out. The only thing about it though is that it doesn't have a very pleasant smell to it.

      So if you do decide to use it I would recommend after using the mane n' tail to use your regular shampoo to help out with the smell issue.

    what drugstore shampoo/conditioner promotes faster hair growth?
    i have hair short like this avatar but i want it long.
    i used to have it past my elbows but in september i cut it that short. i regret it and i want long hair fast. please help me.

    • ANSWER:
      I doubt shampoo or conditioner will increase hair length. You should use almond oil for your hair. Dove shampoo and conditioner has more moisturizer in it so it reduces hair breakage. If you have split ends, get rid of it because it will cause your hair to become weak and break thus making it shorter. Apply a combination of coconut oil, olive oil and almond oil to your hair. It will help in increasing your hair length.

  22. QUESTION:
    What are good fast hair growth products?
    Help! I want my hair to grow faster! It's kinda shoulder length and it's bothering me a lot. It grows about 1/2 inch a month. Anyone knows products that can make the growth process any faster? Tablets, shampoos, conditioners (ANYTHING REALLY)!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows between 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month,sometimes faster/slower depending on health/diet/the individual.

      Eat lots of protein,hair is made up of protein/keratin,so get your meat,milk,eggs,fish,nuts,ect.

      Take a multi vitamin every day,to make up for anything your not getting out of your every day diet.
      Take a hair/nail/skin formula every day.
      Take Omega 3,6&9 Complex every day
      Take Biotin 2,500 mgs per day
      All these are available at any drugstore and each one is under 10$

      You can massage your scalp during shampooing too(5 minutes once a day),that increases circulation,which helps w/scalp health and growth.

      There is NO "magic" shampoo/oil,ect that will help,hair grows from the INSIDE of your body,not the ends of the hair.That's why diet is so important.However good hair products will help by keeping the outside/look of your hair healthier,protect it from breaking.

      Try Loreal EVERPURE shampoo/conditioner,it is SULFATE-FREE,sulfates(sodium laurel/laureth sulfates) are BAD for your scalp/hair.They are used in cleaning products,like garage/floor cleaners,and they are in your current shampoo,can almost garuntee that(go check your lables),they are in 90% of shampoos,including Main N Tail,Pantene,ect

      NOTE; Keep in mind,vitamins work in synergy,you MUST have a Daily Multi Vitamin for certain other vitamins to be absorbed PROPERLY/FULLY....so just taking "random" vitamins will not work nearly as well.

      Good Luck!

  25. QUESTION:
    has anyone ever tried the hair growth shampoo called 'FAST'? if so, whats it like?

    • ANSWER:
      I tried it and it worked but it made my hair dry like most shampoos. So I went looking for another product and I came across a product called Mira hair oil on the web
      I bought the oil because I found that such oils have been made use in India for years
      Mira hair oil is enriched with the goodness of herbal extracts like Hibiscus, Aloe Vera and Eclipta Alba and these have been scientifically proven to strengthen the hair roots and reduce hair loss. Mira hair oil really is a very good hair oil providing protein and quality nutrition for my hair since I started using it. I have been using the product for 6 months now and my hair has grown a few inches. I also have psoriasis and it has suppressed it. My dandruff also stopped with the use of Mira hair oil
      Mira hair oil is very non-sticky and very light and does not give the hair that sticky oily feel and look which I noticed with most other hair oil products. The oil seems to provide great nourishment to the hair roots and will also prevent hair fall. Being rich in Hibiscus it also helps promote hair growth. . I not look back since using this Mira hair oil and I wanted you to know about it as it may help you
      Use F.A.S.T but try Mira hair oil with it it is even better

  26. QUESTION:
    Which Shampoo is best for FAST hair growth?

      Well for one try using Mane N' Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the time and it makes your hair grow faster. You can find it at walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or
      luke warm water on your hair so it won't damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.

I have heard reviews for all these products but i want to know which one works the best. Please help and shair any other secrets that might help my hair grow in a month or so. PLEASE HELLPPP i hhate my short hair

    • ANSWER:
      The best hair growth oil is actually one that has a variety of herbs proven to work to grow hair. You need to know what herbs are used, in what concentrations are used and in my opinion I like Mira hair oil because it has high concentration so of hair growth herbs like hibiscus and eclipta alba. It also has them in the right quantities and proportions. When it comes to hair oils make sure that only the best herbs are used, you do not want to use cheap products because they use very little amounts of hair growth herbs. You do get what you pay for. I love Mira for that reason here are the ingredients in Mira, henna, eclipta Alba, hibiscus, coconut oil and aloe vera. If you do a search on pubmd you will see that these herbs actually have been shown to help hair growth
      Mira hair oil is the one oil has all the herbs to help hair growth and stop hair loss at the same time

    Shampoo For Hair Growth – Is there one that can help me?

Also does anyone know whether I need shampoo and conditioner and how much it will end up costing me, for 1L shampoo and if needed 1L of conditioner?

    Thank you so much Jeff.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey Jeff,

      When I turned my hair started to grow really really slow, so a close friend had recommended that I ask a doctor or use some sort of scalp therapy shampoo. I checked out a doctor and he said that it had something to do with age and genes. However when I was searching it up on Google one day I found a company called Nisim that sells a product called F.A.S.T. the link for the product is in the sources. The product apparently can help grow up to 45% faster but for me it was close to that speed. If you look at the site 1L of Shampoo is and conditioner is the same price.

      Hope that helps Neil.

    Will this Shampoo + Conditioner = Faster Hair Growth?
    So I use baby shampoo. and yeah, my hair has been so soft.
    but then i recently got Main n' Tail Conditioner.

    will this use of shampoo + conditioner make my hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Mane & Tail is another shampoo/conditioner meant for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.

      Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange.

      These must never be used on humans.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls - over 14 having hair falls) are giving advice here? Now, I'm answering more problems re: hair fall or hair not growing. Go figure!

      The hair industry is a billion dollar business, their main job is to make profit, and we're the victims! They do not give money back guarantee for damaged hair or hair loss.

      Continue using the baby shampoo, it is safer, milder for babies, and it DID made your hair soft.

      What is wrong with your hair? If you have virgin soft hair, you don't even need TO CONDITION it. That's for chemically treated hair, if you've been straightening it, and you have frizzy curly hair.

      don't say no, till you try it. my hair is long, so i use about 3/4 a cup. for shot hair you'll probably need a spoon full

      i put it and leave it in for about an hour. 15 minuets is the minimum. then Wash it out. you can wash with shampoo when you done.
      if there is special occasion i just do it 1 week be for, about 3 or 4 time and i'm very satisfied with the result.

  40. QUESTION:
    how fast does horse shampoo work for hair growth?

    if you know a quicker way to make my hair grow, please let me know. i dont want hair extensions or anything expensive...i've got 2 weeks..yikes!!

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing makes your hair grow faster. Horse shampoos and conditioners like Mane & Tail can make your hair healthier and stronger so it doesn't break as much, which will make your hair longer. Normal human hair grows on average 1/2" a month, no matter what you use on it. Damaged hair can get brittle and break off, though, which is what keeps you from seeing any actual length as it's growing. Use a good conditioner, and hot oil treatments to keep hair strong. Also, another thing that works is keeping the hair pinned up to protect it, especially if you have damaged hair and spend a lot of your day sitting in chairs where the back of the chair rubs against your hair.

  42. QUESTION:
    What hair growth shampoo produces the best result? :-) ?
    i need to grow my hair FAST.

    • ANSWER:
      Shampoo only does what it's suppose to do. Clean the pollution, and it doesn't make your hair grow. You are what you eat, and if you're eating healthy, NOT taking supplements, pills, medications which causes side effects, and many are not approved by FDA, you should be OK.

      FAST? Do you have patience? Nothing can grow fast, unless you've got Magic powers!

      You can buy a hair extensions, is that fast enough for you?

  43. QUESTION:
    does mane and tail shampoo promote faster hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair is a dead outgrowth, nothing that is put topically on it has any effect on the follicles where hair growth starts. Mane and Tail is a waxy build-up type of shampoo originally intended for use on the rough and coarse hair of a horse's mane/tail.
      If you want faster hair growth, you need to be sure you are getting the nutrients and minerals that your body needs to manufacture healthy, resilient hair.
      GNC has a supplement called "Ultra Nourishair" that is available in formulas for bothe men and women, it makes the hair grow faster, you can read what's in it by googling it. Be warned these pills are HUGE and you have to take 2 a day.
      Also ProCaps labs sells a "hair skin and nails" formula that does the same thing, supports hair growth and health, and is smaller and easier to swallow.
      If you take only Biotin [sometimes known as "vitamin H" ] alone, make sure you take at least 2.5 milligrams or 2500 micrograms [the same thing] a day because thats' a good amount to take. I use the Nourishair supplement from GNC now and my hair is growing faster than it did, but it took about 6 to 8 weeks of daily use to see results

    • ANSWER:
      noooooooooo shampoos help with hair growth

      what you can do is

      first of all, dont shampoo your hair everyday.
      it takes the natural oils out.
      shampoo your hair once or twice a week.
      conditon your hair everday though.
      leave it on for at least an hour or so.
      or you can leave it on overnight and sleep with it (wrapped in a towel)
      and wash it in the morning.
      makes your hair soo soft and helps with breakage, dry and damaged, frizzy hair.

      do not use pantene or herbal (they have chemicals and waxes that isnt good for our hair)

      use dove therapy or tressume! dove therapy has serum in there.

      eat lots of healthy food.
      red meat helps with hair growth
      bananas, vitamins (vit c and b) helps with hair growth.
      massage your scalp while washing your hair (helps with hair growth and increase blood cirulation)

      do not brush your hair while wet, causes breakage and frizziness.
      let it air dry. comb your hair with your fingers.
      let it down and straight.

      just keep conditioning your hair all the time to prevent damages and breakage.

      if you straigthen, use a heat protector spray (got 2b, or tressume)

      hair grows 1/2-1 inch per month

  48. QUESTION:
    Grow Hair Long fast- which shampoo should i use?
    I am hoping to stimulate my hair growth, hopefully have it grow more than 1/2 inch per month. I already know about biotin and healthy diet and home remedies and exercise and a bunch of other stuff (i've done my research) but i was wondering which brand of shampoo is best to promote long hair? Ex. garnier length and strength, pantene? Any of the basic brands i can find at my local drugstore or grocery is what i'm looking for. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you've straightened your hair in the past.

      You get the strength & all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man like John Frieda or GNC, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don't make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they're pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     Biotin - cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      ·                     Vitamin A - butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as
      liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all
      contain beta-carotene.
      . Copper - oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such
      as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •  Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

    Which oil is better for thickining and growing black hair?
    Ive heard that jamaican black castor oil is good. And also heard some good things about jojoba oil and coconut oil. Your help in making my decision would be great.

    • ANSWER:
      There are many hair oil brand out there, none is better than the other. It can very well even harm your hair, even causes hair loss, since you don't know exactly what kind of oil they say it is. In the lab, they add other ingredients that can prevent from spoiling.

This affliction goes beyond hair oils. FDA has found that from face creams to soaps and other items of personal care, cosmetics companies are taking the general public for a ride. The industry, of course, sees the whole issue differently.

    What are your best suggestions for making grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair isn't alive and it doesn't grow. Hair is an accumulation of a protein called keratin inside the follicle. As it builds up on the bottom it is pushed out the top, creating "hair growth". This is a biological process so nothing that you do to your hair, like trimming it or using some "special" shampoo can help. Eat a healthy, protein rich diet and take a regular multivitamin daily. Do not take prenatal vitamins, despite what some uneducated people here may say, taking too many vitamins can do serious damage to your organs, and can even cause death

  10. QUESTION:
    I am a redhead that is growing black hair on my head. Whats up with this??
    I have auburn hair and about a year ago I noticed that in random spots I had black hairs growing on my head. Sometimes they are much shorter then the rest of the hairs and they stand straight up. After about a year it stopped and then recently started again. I am 37 years old. Was thinking could I be getting black hair instead of gray? Has anyone ever heard of this?

    • ANSWER:
      As you age, your hair color changes from its natural color to grey first, then to white.

      The change in color is basically a gradual decrease of pigmentation!

      Some changes in pigmentation can be due to treatments... such as chemo therapy and radiation!

      I am guessing that you have very dark grey color that it almost look black... specially when its growing with auburn! I think it kinda cheats our vision and makes it look darker when its growing along a light colored hair... do you know what I mean? ;-)

  14. QUESTION:
    What are some natural hair products that grow black hair?
    Over the pst year my hair has grown and I don't want it to break off. I heard that hair products that contain petrolatum and mineral oil is bad for your hair because it clogs your scalp and prevents your hair from growing. Most products have petrolatum and mineral oil, but does anybody know any natural oils that can help grow black hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Well you can use natural oils that help lock moisture in your hair such as coconut, grapesseed, and olive oil are some to name a few. You can do many things with these, you can heat them and give yourself a hot oil treatment, or combine them with your favoriteconditionerr and give your self a pre-conditioning treatment. Mix oils and conditioner together and apply to dry hair cover with plastic cap or sit under a dryer for about 20 to 30 mins or longer if you choose. Then wash and condition as usual, by doing this you help protect your hair from shampoos that strip your hair of its natural oils.

      Also i use organic shampoo and conditioner, it is called Giovanni, you can it at walmart or target, its usually near the other organic or natural made products. While you don't have to use this, you should try to find a shampoo that is sulfate free, that way it doesn't strip and dry out your hair.

      Other things to help your hair grow are limiting the amount of heat you use, if you want to flat iron your hair, let it air dry first as opposed to blow drying, and always use a heat protectant.

      Lastly, if you were your hair out often, try doing more protective styles such as buns or braids that protect the ends of your hair. When your hair is down and left out all the time your ends rub on your shirt and other things, which can lead to premature split ends, this can then lead to breakage and weaker hair.

  17. QUESTION:
    What causes some reddish haired people to have curly black hairs growing out of their scalp with the red hair?
    Hormones, genetics, what?

    • ANSWER:
      Its genetics. The genetic information in some of the cells responsible for the pigmentation[coloring] and shape[straight/curly/wawy] mutate, thus the information they carry changes and they grow different colored hair. This is not only present in redheads, but in any colored hair [though i have never seen it in blondes], darker-haired people tend to grow a couple of gray hairs, which fully lack pigmentation.

      Hormones dont have much to do with the hair that grows on our scalps, they influence the darkness and length of the hair on our faces for example[thats why men have moustaches and beards]

    my hair looks great everyone loves it, even the white girls at school!!! i just want to know if i am using good stuff, it seems to be working, also i wanted to know some tips from black girls who have long hair!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, you seem to be starting off perfect!

      Now...For the other part.. Black womens hair grows slow often..But other may grow faster depending on what is in their genetics. However, if your hair grows slow, it might be 4 years before it is all the way down your back... To speed the growth process, admit from cutting your ends as much and please MONITOR the woman behind you with the scissors!!!!.. If your beautician has short hair, most likely she knows nothing, and i mean nothing about the growing processs... so always look at their hair too!!.. The other thing is the split end Lie!! some ladies get scissor happy and have an addiction to clipping ends and convincing you your hair is damaged and you have split ends.. girl! if your hair is damaged, then start using 3 minute leave in conditions and cholestural conditioners..AVOID too much petrolium!!! a little on your ends Only!! but not on the scalp. too much may clog your pores, so only use it on your ends, where your hair tends to break.. Split ends are normal when hair starts to dry, but they are always there at different lengths and it is almost impossiple to cut them off...lol.. The only reason you should really cut your ends is to even out the growth, like if one side is shorter..But dont let the beautician's give you that uneducated lie about if youd nont get your ends cut, your hair is all going to break off..lol.. I mean when was the last time anybodys hair fell out from not cutting their ends..Just think about it.. Most of hair care is all common sense, you just have to stop and think about things sometimes. I have grown my hair way past my shoulders and have grown my own hair out in the last 5 years.. everybody thinks im mixed because of how silky and long i got it, but its all about learning from trial and error..
      also, do some research and find out what fruits and tea's are good for your hair. Native americans and african use natural fruits in their hair for nutrients and so do I. Oh yea,,, one more thing. AVOID HAIR DYE!! if you follow these tips... your hair will be verrrrrrry looong and even more beautiful.. good luck girly! :)

  26. QUESTION:
    Im mexican and i have slightly curly hair and thick black hair. What do i do to my hair before growing dreads?
    So when i wake up to go to school in the morning i put shampoo and conditioner in my hair. What will make my hair lock up to grow dreads.

    Anyone know

    Like i said i have thick black and slightly curly hair. How do i lock it up

    When i wake up my hair is funky and it looks weird if i leave it like this and never comb it will it grow in to dreadlocks

    • ANSWER:
      There are many ways to get locs. and I'll briefly describe all the methods that will suit your hair texture.
      Research into the methods more to see if it suits you. And I have to let you know you can still wash your hair as much as you want but you need to change your shampoo, preferably something that does not sud. at least for the first year otherwise it will take a lot longer to form. You might need to stop using conditioner, if your conditioner is leave in then change it to something that you can wash out and something that does not untangle your hair. The first few months are always the hardest because they may not look to your liking depending on the method.

      Neglect/Freeform
      Easiest method on earth. Just don't comb your hair. You won't be able to control the size of the loc, or the parts

      Crochet hook
      Probably one of the fastest ways to manufacture locs. You get to control the size of your locs and how they are parted. To maintain your hair you would use the crochet hook as a tool to tangle your hair. Your locs would be as thick as you make it Below is a video to show you an example (in twist and rip)

      Twist and rip
      Not as painful at the title entails. You can control the parts of your locs. It's too hard to explain so watch the video below. Your locs would be at the same length your hair is now, but they would be a lot thinner
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udVVqabkzSA

      Backcombing
      You can control the parts of your locs but not the length as this will make your hair a lot shorter than it already is. Though your locs will be thick. Though if not done properly can damage your hair. The video above explains it.

      There are MILLIONS (not really but a lot) of ways to start your locs these are just the ones that come to mind. These methods do not involve using wax or any other hair product. Beware of wax because it is difficult to wash out of your hair when you have locs and will cause buildup and a whole bunch of bad stuff. If you have anymore questions contact me I'll be sure to help.

    • ANSWER:
      Biotin, MSM is good for hair growth.

      Biotin between 2500-5000mcg a day. MSM is organic sulfur google it or go to vitacost.com and they have affordable nutritional supplements for hair. I currenlty take Maxi-Hair by Country Life you can get it from this website or go to any healthfood store. i has msm and biotin in it, but i take the extra msm and biotin also. I took this supplement before i started taking the extra biotina nd msm and my hair has gooten sooo strong and it seems to grow a little faster. Not major fast but i notice a difference. Maybe because i am taking better care of it. My hair used to be very brittle, but it is not anymore. Take the product and give it a month or two and you will see a difference in your hair growth especially with braids. My hair seemed to grow like a weed on braids.

      Good Luck!

      www.vitacost.com
      you can get 90 capsules .33 on this website, but when i have been impatient and could not wait ended up paying bucks at health food store for the same thing. the shipping is 4.99 but it does not matter how much you order.

    I'm a natural blonde with straight hair, why is it growing in black and curly?
    I've never had chemo, never been pregnant, and I'm only 19.
    Lately, my hair is "peppered" with these wiry black hairs, they don't even have the same texture as my normal hair. I've been having a lot of health problems anyway. Is this something I should bring up with a doctor? I'm seeing one soon anyway.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes bringing it up with a doctor is reasonable, although many won't pay much attention. I have heard that curly and change of texture can occur with a fever and you mention health problems. It may also be an indication of nutritional deficiencies but I can't specify any.

    How do you grow black hair?
    Hi, I just want some tips on how to grow black hairs, do's and dont's, moisturizers, heat protectants, shampoo, conditioner, deep-conditioners, nice hair growth products, etc., Thanks! ( i wanna grown my hair from my neck, to my bra strap )
    My black hair i ment, african american hair, sorry!

    • ANSWER:
      African American hair tends to be very dry and brittle. The key to growing our hair type is to moisturize, do protective styles, stay away from heat as much as you can, do weekly deep conditioners, and stay away from shampoos with sulfates in them or products with mineral oil in them.

      Hair grows between 1/4 of an inch to an inch every month. Theoretically, you can't do anything to make your hair grow faster, but you can control if your hair grows healthy and if you retain your length. Your hair is growing steadily, but you must retain the growth. If your hair breaks at the same rate that it grows, you won't see a difference in length.

      Moisture is the key to retaining length. The best thing to do is to do a deep condition at least once a week and use Natural and organic products that will promote hair growth and retention. I love the SimplyNatural line. It contains great ingredients such as grapeseed extract which is argued to actually increase the rate of growth. The products are all natural and organic and good for all hair types. You can purchase by going to http://www.simplynaturalyou.com and selecting Shop Products.

  35. QUESTION:
    Will my puppy grow black hair if it has black spots on his skin?
    I am getting a Maltese puppy (1/8 Shih Tzu), and he is exactly what I'm looking for, but I noticed that he has black coloring (birthmarks?) right above his nose (tiny spots). It is not definitely not anything bad, it's just coloring on his skin. He is all white with cream ears and tail, but will he grow black hair where the spots are?

    • ANSWER:
      Well our maltese has black patches of skin on him but his fur is all white. He is a purebred maltese though.. Ask the breeder if you can have a look at its' parents. This should give you a fair idea.

  36. QUESTION:
    How old usually before a black pug starts growing gray hair?
    My pug Hercules is almost 9 months, he has like 3 random gray/white hairs around his body. I've seen pictures of older black pugs completely white. I was wondering around what age they start to significantly grow gray/white hair. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      3 random white hairs?! my goodness. you really pay attention to details! but you shouldnt worry about it. it should start getting really grey/white around age 8 or 9 or 10. (human years) hope that helps!

  37. QUESTION:
    I have thin black hair things growing out of my aquatic plants, any idea what it is? What do i do 2 get rid?

    • ANSWER:
      sounds like red bottle brush/beard algae.

      It is SO hard to get rid of. What size is your tank? If it is 25+ gallons, I would get a siamese algae eater, as they are the ONLY algae eaters that will eat this type of algae.

      That is the easiest solution.

  38. QUESTION:
    Growing long, really curly (black) hair?
    I have extremely curly hair, and want to grow it long. Recently, I've gotten a trim so that my hair is past my shoulders and healthy. I take a vitamin for overall healthy. I deep condition my hair and wash my hair from one week to every 2 weeks. After, I wash my hair I have to straighten my hair because its so curly it would just get tangled and out of control. I don't perm or color my hair. Any tips on growing long hair and is straightening hair with a flat iron bad if I only do it every 2 weeks?

    • ANSWER:
      Flat ironing can be damaging if your hair is not strong enough to handle the heat; if you use too much heat; or if you don't use a heat protector. Other than that, you should be fine, though this doesn't mean that somewhere down the road the heat won't begin to take a toll on your hair; some people can flat iron regularly for a year and then all of a sudden their hair becomes damaged by the heat. This is because the heat was slowly damaging their healthy hair.

      If you have a problem with bad tangles then consider washing your hair while it's in plaits or washing one section at a time. Plait or braid it at night to cut down on the tangles. Usually, with very curly hair it's harder to wear it loose the longer it gets.

  39. QUESTION:
    what is the best way to start off growing dreads for black hair?
    is it recommended to have a change in diet or and to exercise???

    • ANSWER:
      excersize no, diet, well many who dread for religios reasons or to be "natural" are vegatarian, or ital (little strickter then vegatarian ital demands no grape products as well)

      but none of that is needed to dread, its a choice, or belief they should (ive been vagatarian few years longer then dreaded ..like 26 years)

      to start off dreading (by black i assume you mean african not color) you can just alow it to dread (natural method) or twist into sections
      only retwist if they fall apart after washing
      stop twisting when they hold together.
      never use wax or gels
      wax and gels slow the process you want clean dreads only

  40. QUESTION:
    I have very fair skin and have always had pale blonde leg hair - why is it now growing black?
    I'm 16, and have been shaving my legs for about 4 years now. Well, I have VERY fair skin, and have always had pale blonde hair on my legs. For some reason, it's now growing black. I hate it, because it looks disgusting and I have to shave much more often. Why is this, and is there a way I can stop it?

    • ANSWER:
      That's absolutely normal -- it's one of the signs that your body is nearing the end of puberty and your hormone levels are approaching that of an adult woman. Try not to think of it as disgusting, merely different. It's a hassle, but it's something we all deal with.

  41. QUESTION:
    How do you grow black hair long and strong?
    I'm a mother of a little 4 y/o black girl and I'm not sure how to grow her hair long and strong. I never quite got the hang of how to do a little kids hair. Mines is long and always has been but my mom died a little while ago and I never asked her how she did my hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Um...this is in the wrong section and I don't have any kids but I do know how to grow young hair.

      When you wash it make sure you deep condition it. It's best to blow dry it in sections and moisturize with pink oil or olive oil creme before doing so. Just take a section of hair and comb it while blow drying it. Since she's young this is the best method of moisturizing and straightning her hair without having to use a hot comb. Grease her scalp weekly and have her wear braids and ponytails alot. When she's around the age of 9-11 she might want her hair straightened, so do so with flat iron, don't perm it. You can get the same results with a less harsher process.

    How to fix hair color on a black and white shih tzu puppy?
    I just had him groomed today and his hair reveals black hair spots growing on the white areas. This shih tzu has a beautiful black and white hair arrangement, but lately some black hair is growing here and there in the white areas.

    Is there a way to mke his hair colors grow where they suppose to be: black hair grow in black area, white hair n white area ? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      No you can't change the way his hair grows. You can use a bit of white chalk to cover it up a bit or trim them. The black hairs are perfectly acceptable by the Shih Tzu standard. You should definitely speak with the breeder you purchased your dog from as a good breeder will know best what is proper grooming for their breed.

      The American Shih Tzu Club has some great information about grooming on their website:

    Do baby rats skin turn black before they start growing hair??
    Only 1 out of 9 baby rats has got black skin now so does that mean its going to grow hair or is it lack of milk or nutrients?? please help

    • ANSWER:
      Your babies must be about 3 days old, yes? This is when you can start to see what color they will be, and what markings, if any, they will have.

      The babies that have pink skin are going to have light colored coats as in Pink-eyed Whites, Champagne, Beige, or Siamese, etc. The baby that has dark skin is going to have a dark coat as in Black, Agouti, or Chocolate, etc.

      Your babies are perfectly normal and developing just as they should.

Natural Complexion Cream For A Clean, Clear Face
It is important to note that while choosing an ideal skin cream, we need to remember that it matches our health quotient and is free from of harmful chemicals. That's why we ought to choose a natural skin care cream which is rich in essential oils, plant extracts, vitamins, antioxidants and honey.

Ensure that your cream has adequate oil content

A natural skin care cream is blessed with just the right amount of oils which are both healthy and safe for your external as well as internal skin. The best example of mineral oils is liquid petrolatum and is said to be a byproduct of liquid crude oil.

It is advisable to steer clear of mineral oil and adopt the oils from plants instead. Olive and grape seed oils are perfect for your skin and are safe to use. A natural skin care product needs to match our natural skin and oils from plant are in sync with our body oils.

Make sure that your cream uses antioxidants

If you wish to moisturize your skin and save it free from permanent damage, it is imperative that you use acomplexion cream which uses antioxidants. The oxidants need to be made from the latest nanotechnology. This is essential to keep your skin free of unwanted wrinkles.

What happens is that when you start to age, your skins fighting mechanism slows and this gives rise to free radicals. Now these free radicals damage your skin and speed the process of aging. Antioxidants, on the other hand, and over here we are referring to natural antioxidants, stop the free radicals from spreading further and thus they protect our skin from further damage.

Look for the content of amino acids

If you though that amino acids are an essential part of your daily diet, you need to think twice, for they are equally important for skin application. Amino acids are a vital part of natural skin care and they are used to keep your skin healthy and supple. These amino acid peptides are used to increase the collagen and elastic content in our bodies which helps maintain our youth.

At the same time, you need to understand that natural products are devoid of artificial fragrances and are certainly free of preservatives. In order to increase their shelf live, they use natural vitamin E, which in turn serves as an efficient anti oxidant.

Black Hair Products

Black Hair Products for Natural Hair
If you've decided to go natural, you will probably want to know what's out there as far as the best black hair products for natural hair. A new product that store owners are having a hard time keeping on the shelves is the Eco Styler Gel with Olive Oil. This gel comes in a large container and is great for all hair types, especially natural hair that is short. Use it on the hair after you've done the BC (the big chop), and it is great for wash and wear styles. It goes on smooth when the hair is soaking wet and gives the hair a finished look with healthy shine. The gel can also be used on long hair and provides a certain amount of hold, and is great for up-do's. The Eco Styler Gel with Olive Oil is a great product for wash and wear styles because it's quick and easy to maintain. Cost-wise, it won't break your pocketbook and does not cost nearly as much as other natural curl enhancers.

I have used Cathy Howes' UBH Creme Moisturizer formula for many years which is an excellent product for black hair whether natural or relaxed. On natural hair, it works as a good moisturizer barrier on the hair before you apply the Eco Styler Gel. It will help keep the hair moisturized and prevent flaking.

I know experts say only to use SULFATE FREE shampoos, but Mane 'n Tail has worked wonders on my children's' hair. (One child has natural hair and the second is transitioning from relaxer to natural). Mane 'n Tail has created volume and softness in their hair, and has the added bonus of really thickening up the hair. Upon its first use, you will notice a BIG difference in how your hair feels, and it makes your hair more soft and manageable.

Diva Smooth is a new exciting product I stumbled upon and I am thanking God I did. Whether you are transitioning from a relaxer or curly perm to natural hair and want to use a healthy alternative to perms, Diva Smooth is the product for you. It is a natural straightening alternative to relaxers that is fully natural and does not change the makeup of the hair chemically. Upon applying the product to the hair as instructed, following the waiting period and washing and rinsing out, you will notice a difference even while blow drying your hair. Your hair will be very silky, and then when the flat iron or In-Styler is used, you will have instant silk and will be amazed at how soft and manageable your hair has become. Your hair will have a healthier gloss and shine, and will look moisturized compared to how your hair looks when you have a relaxer. Relaxers tend to dry the hair out, but Diva Smooth preserves moisture and locks it in. If you purchase the coconut serum with your Diva Smooth, it will protect your hair while you are straightening it and give your hair the moisture it needs. This is a revolutionary product I hope they never stop making. The only complaint is that so many people want this product that it takes, on the average, 9 to 10 business days to receive it. However, just be patient; it's worth the wait!

I purchased the InStyler as a healthy alternative to using the flat-iron. The InStyler has a ceramic rotating barrel and brush bristles that glide through the hair and calm and smooth the hair as it straightens it. As a result, you hair has a very straight look, and your ends are kept healthy as compared to how they look when the flat-iron is used which has the potential to instantly fry the hair and causes damage to the ends. It is easy to use and comes with an instructional DVD and booklet. It is great for medium to long hair, but can also be used on short hair too.

      Neutrogena Triple Moisture Leave-In

      Oils:
      It is best to use natural oils like the ones listed above. Avoid using products with mineral oil, petroleum, petrolatum, lanolin, or parrafin oil as one of the main ingredients on your scalp. Such oils aren't beneficial to your scalp-- they only clog the pores and prevent your hair growth.

      Avocado Oil: great for dandruff and dry scalp.
      Castor Oil: Penetrates deep into the hair shaft, leaving hair thick, soft, and silky.
      Extra VirginCoconut Oil: absorbs easily and leaves your hair feeling soft, not greasy.
      Extra Virgin Olive Oil: adds great moisture.
      Grapeseed Oil: Great heat protectant.
      Jojoba Oil: Light oil that is very similar to the natural oil that hair produces by itself.

  7. QUESTION:
    What are good black hair care products for natural and transitioning hair?
    I am currently transitioning and am 3 months in. I still have a ton of relaxed hair left. I have a dry scalp and I am looking to find ORGANIC hair products for natural and transitioning black hair.

    • ANSWER:
      You will need a moisturizing shampoo (without sodium laureth sulfate, commonly known as sls; it dries the hair out and strips it of it's natural oils and moisture) you may want to try aubrey organics products for this (can find them at whole foods stores); next you will need a protein deep conditioner: organics hair mayo (in a jar) or organics replenish packs. both of these work great for me (i've been transitioning for 7 months) and they help tame my natural hair. also, invest in a moisturizing leave-in conditioner and a protein leave-in conditioner. I use giovanni direct leave-in for my protein conditioner and i'm still on the lookout for a moisturizing leave-in (I'll probably invest in pure shea butter or aloe vera with glycerin). this is what works for me; there's so much information out there for properly caring for hair, especially when dealing with two textures. the key is to have patience and to learn and understand your hair and what it's telling you. if you would like more detailed information you can email me at my yahoo address.

  8. QUESTION:
    do you think there is a place for modern and natural black hair products on the high street?
    there are lots of new organic and revolutionary products on the internet but these are not available on the high street. do you think these products should be displayed to a wider audience where you can touch and smell them and gain advice from black hair care specialists.
    Just to make it clear, I am thinking about products like unrefined shea butter which is very popular with the new wave of people who want to grow their relaxers out. For example. I have a multicultural family and we all have different needs when it comes to our hair, I am very comfortable with this and do not need negative comments. When i open my company any one of any creed and colour will be welcome. Please lets not throw the "R" word about.

    • ANSWER:
      Probably. But i am not sure but I am pretty sure there probabaly somewhere.

  9. QUESTION:
    Black women: Why are black hair products in the "ethnic" aisle at the stores?
    I never understood this, why the stores do not just put all the hair care products in the same aisle. Why is there a "white person" aisle for products, then usually the next row over is "ethnic aka black" aisle?
    No lovely bunny, I am just a father who takes his girls shopping.

    • ANSWER:
      Every story I has all the hair products geared toward different races in one aisle, except there is usually a tiny section for black hair care products.
      I don't really use any of that suff, because it has a lot of damaging chemicals in it. I'd rather get my hair care products from sources that are a little more natural.

  10. QUESTION:
    What are some natural hair products that grow black hair?
    Over the pst year my hair has grown and I don't want it to break off. I heard that hair products that contain petrolatum and mineral oil is bad for your hair because it clogs your scalp and prevents your hair from growing. Most products have petrolatum and mineral oil, but does anybody know any natural oils that can help grow black hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Well you can use natural oils that help lock moisture in your hair such as coconut, grapesseed, and olive oil are some to name a few. You can do many things with these, you can heat them and give yourself a hot oil treatment, or combine them with your favoriteconditionerr and give your self a pre-conditioning treatment. Mix oils and conditioner together and apply to dry hair cover with plastic cap or sit under a dryer for about 20 to 30 mins or longer if you choose. Then wash and condition as usual, by doing this you help protect your hair from shampoos that strip your hair of its natural oils.

      Also i use organic shampoo and conditioner, it is called Giovanni, you can it at walmart or target, its usually near the other organic or natural made products. While you don't have to use this, you should try to find a shampoo that is sulfate free, that way it doesn't strip and dry out your hair.

      Other things to help your hair grow are limiting the amount of heat you use, if you want to flat iron your hair, let it air dry first as opposed to blow drying, and always use a heat protectant.

      Lastly, if you were your hair out often, try doing more protective styles such as buns or braids that protect the ends of your hair. When your hair is down and left out all the time your ends rub on your shirt and other things, which can lead to premature split ends, this can then lead to breakage and weaker hair.

  13. QUESTION:
    Why are words such as "do" and "grow" misspelled on black hair products?
    Why are do and grow spelled "doo" or "gro" on black hair products? Are these companies trying to make fun of black people?

    • ANSWER:
      Don't be defensive it's just their trademark. You know how we do in cyberspace with bf for boyfriend or brb for be right back, it's just what they do in their industry. But if you are not in their industry and don't understand their terminology then it might offend you. Just try to open your mind a little. These companies wouldn't try to make fun of the race they are trying to target, believe me, without us there would be no them. They need our business to stay in business. And I've never read the ingredients, they may have taken the "doo" from one of their ingredients to try and jazz it up a bit. Just call the customer complaint and comment 1-800 number on the product and ask how did they come up with the name for the product because some people you know were offended because they didn't understand the meaning........... Let us know.............But there are some brands used by caucasion people with funny names as well...........

Also I'm not a hair stylist so I'm not sure what black hair care products are and what they do.
    I'm a dude by the way lol ... yes i have a girl with a boyfriend as a friend.

    • ANSWER:
      From what I have come to know is that 'black' hair care products contain more moisturizers than regular shampoos and such because our hair tends to go from moist to dry when it gets dirty. Whereas, with the 'other' kind of hair, it is the opposite. It goes from dry to oily as it gets dirtier. That type also doesn't want all the moisturizers because it would flatten or weigh down their hair. Black hair craves moisture to look healthy and handle the styling tools we use. Most other hair looks healthier when it is not drowned in styling products and solutions. So depending on which way you hair is should define what may be best for you.

      My bad, well same difference, if you want to sport a Fro definitely Do It with Style.

    What are some good black hair products that don't contain too much petroletum?
    Almost all black hair grease and moisturizers contain pore clogging petroletum which slows hair growth. does anyone know of moisturizers that help hair growth that dont contain a lot of petroletum?

    • ANSWER:
      You are right. Petroleum is awful moisturizer for the hair and it slows hair growth. The best moisturizers for black hair actually are natural products with natural oils that can penetrate the hair shaft and follicle to make it grow.

      The best product that I have found is Beauty 4 Ashes GodHead Carrot and Vitamin E Follicle Fuze Hair Butter. Although it is a little pricey, it has Pure Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Sunflower, Amino Acids, and Carrot Seed Essential Oil, all speed up hair growth. It is light, natural, and smells good as well. You can also try Beauty 4 Ashes Puritea Terrific Ten Hair lotion. It has no petroleum and gives you shea, jojoba, avocado, and a bunch of other stuff, plus more hair lotion. wwwdiscoverb4acom.

      I also give Carol's Daughter's hair milk a thumbs up. It is also more expensive, but works really good on natural black hair. It is natural and has good natural hair oils as well.

    if it hepls i have 3c hair and its about shoulder length

    • ANSWER:
      Cantu shea butter leave in conditioner is good but I think you should make your own leave in conditioners. Make your own shea butter and oil mix, plenty of black women do this to where they know what is in it and save money and have great hair lol. You can buy all this stuff online at amazon.com or at a natural food store. It is shea butter, coconut oil, and an essential oil to keep it preserved. They usually have their own ratios depending on how they like their hair products. You can do 3 to 1 or 2 to 1 (2 parts shea butter and 1 part coconut oil) and a couple of drops of any natural hair oil (tea tree, rosemary, sage, peppermint, eucalyptus etc.). You whip them in a stand mixer or a hand mixer, it will become soft and will start becoming fluffy. You can use this for your hair.

    Do the hair straigtening products for black girl hair work on white girl hair?
    Everytime I pass by those products the hair on the ladies in the boxes look so nice and straight but it only advertises for black women, and I wonder if it would work on my hair too. does anyone know.

    • ANSWER:
      Products designed for a black woman's hair might be very damaging for a white woman's hair, because black women generally have much coarser hair that requires much more to be straightened. You should try something designed for your hair type first, and then move up to more powerful formulas if those don't work.

    Is there a difference in Black Hair Care Products such as relaxers and conditioners?
    After two years of being natural I went back to relaxing my hair. So far the products I've been using seem to work but is there really a difference between products by lets say Dark n Lovely and Mr. Miracle. If so which is the best product to use.

    • ANSWER:
      Dr. Miracles has the best relaxer out there. I just re-did my hair last night. My hair is really straight and whatever is in their product promotes hair growth so that is why I prefer Dr. Miracles.

      I also love Doo Grow hair care products. I have notice a big difference in the length of my hair after four months of use.

      Revlon Realistic is the next best thing. Your hair stays straight for a long time.

      Dark n Lovely products and Motions are just a waste of money.
