Coconut Oil Is not Just Good for Growing Black Hair, but also a Good Conditioner for to Keep it healthy

Black women, when you use coconut oil, it will not just stop breakage, but it works good with your natural proteins and strengthens the fiber in your hair.  Coconut is good for growing your hair, because it contains Lauric Acid.  Lauric Acid, a microbial action on the scalp and hair roots which prevents hair loss and stops split ends.  For older people, it is also good to keep  hair beautifully jet black.

If you have tried everything that seems to fail to grow your hair while keeping it healthy you should try Coconut Oil, it's not only a natural blessing from God, it's a miracle oil for maintaining our hair.  According to, Coconut oil is a plant-based oil extracted from the kernel of the coconut with a high concentration of saturated fatty acids, lauric acid, capric acid and vitamins E and K. In its natural unprocessed state, coconut oil has a high moisture retaining capacity and does not breakdown or evaporate easily when it is applied to the hair and penetrates the hair shaft. This is highly beneficial to black hair that is challenged by its inability to consume and retain moisture. Coconut oil's high concentration of fatty acids also nourishes your hair with protein that produces strong and long, soft and shiny hair.  The article went onto to suggest using coconut oil as a shampoo, a daily conditioner and
also a deep conditioner.

We encourage you to try it, because it is not so heavy on your hair as other oils.  For daily conditioning, you can apply it to your roots and massage your hair from roots to the ends.  You can also leave it on for 30 minutes or more before washing your hair, three times a week.   You can also allow it to penetrate by massaging it into your scalp and and covering your hair overnight, then shampoo and rinse well in the morning. 

If any chance you are not pleased with results within three months time, you can discontinue using it.  However, as far as we've heard, there has been nothing but alleged positive results by some black women using Coconut Oil not to just grow their hair, but to keep it healthy and prevent hair loss.

10 Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Long and Healthy

Sisters, here are 10 ways to help grow your hair long and healthy.   We encourage you to not just try these techniques once and forget them, but always remember them if you ever want to experience having long hair.  Some of you have given up, because you think black women cannot grow long hair, but we have seen too many of our sisters showing positive results.  One of the main reasons why they have achieved positive results of growing long hair, is simply because they continued to do what worked best.  If you have been trying to grow long hair and nothing seems to work, just make a wise decision to take action and not give up.

  1. Always keep a lot of moisture in your hair.  Make sure black women, you always use products that will give your hair a lot of moisture and not dry it out.  There are some products on the market that have a lot of damaging ingredients that are not good for black hair. The next time you visit your beauty supply store, read the label and make sure you are buying products that adds moisture to your hair.  Ingredients such as alcohol, parabens and sulfate are not good for black hair.  Make sure you drink a lot of water.  
  2. Regularly co-wash your hair, this means just using a conditioner to wash your hair. When you do this you will not strip the natural oils out of your hair.  Speaking of co-washing, we would advise to only use shampoo one time a month to wash your hair and make sure it has natural ingredients without chemicals, which we mentioned above.
  3. Never use heat in your hair.  When you regularly use heat in your hair, you kill it.  If you use any heat, make sure it's very minimal at a low temperature.
  4. Use the right hair tools that won't pull your hair and strip it.  When using a comb, make sure it is a wide tooth one.  When using a brush, make sure it is a boar bristle hair brush.
  5. Make sure you cut off your split ends regularly. Always trim your hair. Some black women think they do not have to worry about trimming their hair when they go from a relaxer to a natural style.  However, either way you must always make sure your hair is trimmed so your hair will not become damaged.   When you do not trim your ends, your hair won't ever grow, if it barely does, it will be very uneven.
  6. Keep heavy oils out of your hair.  It's okay to grow your hair with light oils and cremes, but there are some heavy oils some black women apply to their scalps that are not good, because this prevents air from getting into the roots of your hair.  Your hair needs air in order to grow.
  7. Stay away from hair relaxers and perms.  Black women, one of the best ways to grow your hair is to go natural.  Some of you may not think you look good with natural hair, but once you moisturize your hair on a daily basis and learn how to wear protective styles you will fall in love with wearing your hair, naturally.  When you naturally grow your hair, you will experience it also being very strong and healthy.
  8. Keep a healthy diet. Make sure you always eat a lot of fruits and vegetables.  When you decide to eat healthy food that is good for your body, then your hair will benefit from it.  Whatever effects your body will indeed effect your hair, negatively or positively.   Many of you sisters may not be health conscious, but it's never too late to start.
  9. Make sure you always cover your hair before you go to bed. Cover your hair with a satin cap, not cotton.  This protects your hair from breakage.  It is a bad habit for a lot of sisters to get sleepy and just lay on their hair night after night, which is not good.  Make it a habit to always sleep with a satin cap.
  10. Do not pull your hair.  Stay away from hair bands and tight styles like wearing hair extensions, for example.  When you pull your hair, you cause Alopecia, which could cause permanent bald spots.

    Black Women, Eat a lot of Protein and Grow Long Healthy Hair

    Sisters, let us first ask you when you eat your daily meals, do you include a lot of protein?  If you do not eat a lot, you still need an ample amount for your hair to grow, very healthy.  In one of our previous articles, we discussed why it is very harmful for you to regularly eat greasy and fast foods.  Many of you lack protein in your diet and we will give you reasons why you need it, if you ever want to grow long hair.

    If you desire to prevent hair loss, you should increase your intake of protein.   Some of you black women do not eat a lot of fish.  You can get all the benefits just by taking fish and flaxseed oil supplements on a daily basis.   However, it is also good to buy fresh fish like salmon and bake it.  Also, you will be able to get a lot of protein by eating certain fruits and vegetables, besides whey protein.

    Specifically fruits, according to, avocado, figs and peaches are very high in protein.  Avocado is a rich source of other nutrients besides protein. It provides zinc, folic acid and fiber.  Peaches provide provides 2 grams of protein and dried figs can be several times higher than in mere fresh figs, according to

    Specifically vegetables, according to, soybeans, lentils, beans, peas and artichokes are very high in protein.  Eating soybeans will give you 29 grams of protein per cup.   Lentils will give you 18 grams of protein per cup.  Black beans, kidney beans and garbanzos are also members from the legumes family, which will give you 13 grams of protein per cup.  Specifically, blackeye peas will give you  the highest protein level of 11 grams per cup and artichokes will give you about 6 grams of protein per cup.

    There are protein in your hair cells is called keratin, which promotes healthy hair strands.  Healthy hair largely requires a sufficient intake of protein, because it is mostly made up of it, so this is why you need to regularly eat it to continue growing long healthy hair.  If you want to prevent hair breakage eat a lot of protein.  According to, the amount of protein each person needs daily varies on an individual basis by weight, height, and other factors. Persons with weak immune systems or illnesses, such as anemia, may require more. An average person requires between 1.4 to 2.5 ounces (40 and 70 grams) of protein daily.

    Can You Grow Your Hair with Extensions although Your Allergic to Synthetic or Human Hair

    Do you find yourself trying to use hair extensions to grow your hair, although you are allergic to synthetic or human hair of any brand?   Sisters, we can recall when we endured a normal itch after getting our hair braided, but nowadays, we hear these companies are allegedly using chemicals before packaging the hair to be sold.   So many black women are allergic to synthetic or human hair, we are surprised they are still able to sell it, they should be losing money and discontinuing their products, by now.

    One of our journalists can recall braiding her hair back in 2005 with synthetic hair, then she had to take them out the next few days.   She didn't stop there, she then bought the human hair and it still broke her out.  She tried using it again around 2007, it was the same issue, but even worst, she had such a bad allergic reaction, she began using Neosprin, Hydrocrotosone cream, Aloe Vera gel or whatever would calm down the burning itch and this was after using the human hair.  There comes a time in life when you realize, it just won't work.   As you know human hair, cost much more than the synthetic hair, so she lost a lot of money after retrying both types, again.    

    You maybe wondering what is the solution, black women?   We urge you to grow your own hair naturally without ever using hair extensions, simply because you are absolutely wasting your time, energy and money.  The long hours it takes for you to braid your hair, you could be doing something else and the money you spend could be spent on something you would find more useful.  Make a wise choice, never to retry using hair extensions to grow your hair, because it will may never work, after you have already tried a few times.  The allergic reaction can be so annoying, it's just not worth it.  Gone are those days when we were in our late teens and early 20's when companies processed the hair much different.   As black women, let's be smart and think wisely, we do not make the hair, so why spend money on it, especially if we do not know what chemicals these companies are allegedly using to process the hair.

    The same thing goes for weaves, there are some black women whom have experienced an allergic reaction after getting weaves attached to their own hair.  Our advice, have it immediately removed and start growing your own hair.   You may wonder how you will style your own kinky hair, because it maybe so difficult to manage?  Try using a creme and twisting your hair, which many sisters have resulted to these days and they appear very nice too.

    Why Vitamin B is Important to Grow Long Hair

    Vitamin B increases hair growth and if your body lacks it, then you cannot expect your hair to grow long and be healthy.   When you go shopping at your nearest grocery story or health and nutrition outlet, you should make sure you purchase Biotin and other various B vitamins.   You may have learned how to use certain techniques by reading our previous articles, but it makes no sense to do them, if you are not including Vitamin B in your diet and also taking it on a daily basis. 

    Many of you maybe trying to go natural and wonder why you are not growing any inches of hair.  You cannot just stop putting chemicals and heat in your hair, you have to include all sorts of vitamin B vitamins and do everything that is necessary to help to grow your hair and keep it healthy.   For example, you maybe taking a lot of protein, but your body also needs B vitamins in order for your hair to keep growing and keep it strong.   Did you know B3 helps increase circulation to the scalp, which increases hair growth? Vitamin B3 niacin  is very important for growing hair.  Therefore, you should make sure you never lack B3, including all other B vitamins, which is in the form of the Vitamin B complex supplement.  However, you have to be very careful when taking certain B vitamins, according to, there are side effects when taking biotin which is not good for people whom are diabetic and too much of vitamin B complex intake can be dangerous.  Then, there are other cons that are not good, so please see our source.

    We are going to reveal which vegetables retain various B vitamins, which will also help your hair to grow very long.  According to 3FatChicks, there are 9 specific vegetables that contain Vitamin B6, so take your pick which ones you will eat per day, at least a cup:
    1. Avocado (be careful it is high in calories and fat.) 2. Spinach 3. Potatoes (be careful not to eat too much if you are on a diet.) 4. Peas 5. Asparagus 6. Red Bell Pepper 7. Broccoli 8. Cauliflower 9. Carrots

    Remember sisters, you can do certain things to grow your hair, but if you are not doing everything combined, do not expect your hair to grow long and healthy.

    Can you use Garlic Pills to Grow Your Hair Like Fresh Garlic?

    We happened to hear a negative testimony about growing your hair using garlic pills.   The question is, can you use garlic pills to grow your hair like fresh garlic?   Absolutely yes, but-it you will have to use a whole lot of garlic pills to use for your entire head, but they do work.  This article will teach you to never listen to naysayers, you should always try it out for yourself.

    Pay close attention to what happened last week among a few of our journalists who went shopping at a discount store.  Usually, none of us thought the vitamins sold at this particular store would be of good quality, although it showed 1,000 milligrams.   Personally, one of us shared the story how we heard the woman on You Tube mention garlic pills did not work for growing hair.   When we saw the pills in this particular store, we instantly remembered what we discussed and decided to purchase the garlic pills, anyway.   Once we split the pills, one of us decided to use one that very evening.  That next day, one of our journalists honestly started seeing new growth at her temples.  The next morning, we all witnessed this miracle.   Now sisters, let us be very real with you, garlic comes from God like other vegetables, so we know it should work.   So you see, garlic pills have to work, because they come from the real garlic of the onion family.

    Does the fresh garlic treatment also work overnight?   It all depends on how much garlic you are preserving in a jar and how long it has a chance to dissolve.   For example, you can trying cutting up about 6 to 9 cloves of garlic in a mayonnaise jar, instead of just three and let it sit for at least two weeks.  Although three garlic cloves may grow your hair, if you multiply the amount, it maybe more effective than just using 3, because remember, you are not using the whole jar of treatment at one time.  Therefore, if you multiply the amount, you may see the same results overnight as using the pills.   Use your own judgement and please use percaution and make sure you are not allergic, which we will discuss later on, in this article.

    If you should decide to use garlic pills, make sure they are at least 1,000 mg, so you can get the full benefit of it.   On the particular box of garlic pills we bought, it read: 'one pill equals 3 bulbs', so you know it miraculously worked overnight.   The disadvantage for using it for your full head of hair is that you will have to poke open a whole bunch of pills.  So we would advise you to use them for your edges, temples and other bald spots and use our fresh garlic treatment for your full head of hair. Therefore, you are using it both ways and can experience the full benefit of the pure garlic, both ways.   If so, wait to your hair is dry to use the garlic pills on a daily basis or every other day.  Again, if you want to use the fresh garlic treatment, please carefully follow our previous article, if you think you are allergic, please discontinue use, instantly.  You can test a patch of hair, first, before you do your entire head of hair, the same for the garlic pill.

    The biggest lesson sisters, if someone tells you something does not work, don't listen to them.  We assume this woman was either lying, because she did not want to share her secret with other black women or-she just bought a low quality brand of garlic pills.
