Popular Question: how do black women grow their hair long? A black woman today has to search to get answers about how to grow long hair. Just like you I am looking for answers.
I have been wearing my hair natural for 10 years, growing it out for 8 of those years. All I can say is that this has been the healthiest and longest my hair has every been. I am not saying that you have to be chemical free to grow black hair, I am just speaking from my personal experience. What I do know is that knowledge is key. And if we as black women want to grow our hair long, we must get together as a community and get the knowledge.
So to our sisters out there who do have long hair, share your hair stories so we can help each other out. Do not let anyone tell you that black woman can not grow long hair. We just never took the time to understand the character of our “thirsty roots” to know how to treat it and maintain its natural luster.
