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 livestrong.com, 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.

    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 fitday.com, 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 fitday.com.

    Specifically vegetables, according to fitday.com, 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 wisegeek.com, 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.
