             Blessings to all!  As a natural stylist I am asked constantly what can be done to achieve long healthy tresses. What can you do as a client at home to motivate this process? Well I am here with some answers!!!! Yayy!! (I know

Here are 8 ways to ensure long, healthy and thick tresses:


1.   Water:  If you want you grass to grow you have to water the land. Meaning. What is your water intake? If you’re not consuming at least the 8 cups required a day, then this could be a problem. I would also consider drinking Alkaline or distilled water.  These waters have an effect on your bodies PH, hydration, amongst other things.

2.   Foods: There are certain foods that you can eat to assist in the process of growing out your healthy tresses. Foods that hair high in your Omega-3, proteins, biotin, and vitamin E, will be vital for healthy hair and scalp. Foods such as salmon, almonds, yellow peppers, avocado, and oysters (yes oysters) just to name a few.

3.   Oils: Being sure to use the proper type of oils for the hair and scalp is key, especially during your dryer winter months.  You can make it a mixture or you can use these oils singularly. Essential oils are very useful, not only for fragrance and the effects on your mood, but they also aid in helping for growth, thickening, and all sorts of scalp conditions. Oils such as olive, castor, coconut, jojoba, avocado, and grape seed are some really good oils that have the proper vitamins and nutrients in them aiding in a healthy scalp which promotes growth. Add essential oils such as lavender, mint, and rosemary for aroma, and scalp exfoliation to promote growth.

4.   Heat: Heat plays a huge part in the growth and overall growth of your natural tresses. While the beauty of being natural means that you are able to be straight or curly. Although wearing your tresses straight can be a challenge, especially in the spring/summer months, you still have the option. With that being said, if you choose your tresses to be straight, just be careful of “THE TOTAL HEAT INDEX” you put on your tresses. Once your tresses are thermo damaged it’s difficult if not impossible to return to its natural curl pattern. Which means chop, chop, chop.
5.   Scalp Massages: I know this sounds crazy, and you have heard it before but YES scalp massages, are both relaxing and beneficial to growth of your tresses. Massaging the scalp stimulates blood circulation which promotes hair growth. Take a few moments out your day and massage your scalp your follicles will thank you. And besides after a hard day work we all could use a scalp massage.

6.   Trims: It is important to get trims WHEN NEEDED! Trims are not needed every 3 months. If your tresses are properly taken care of then trims may not be needed too often because the ends shouldn’t become split. Trims are different from a cut. A trim is usually anything 1in. and under is a trim and anything over is considered a cut.

7.   Tools: Proper hair tools are very important. You should be sure to use the proper tool at the right time. WIDE TEETH combs, Paddle brushes, Boar brushes are all helpful but can also be harmful if not used properly.  When the hair is dry before/and after you shampoo using a wide tooth/shampoo comb to comb out your tresses from tip to root is the proper way minimize breakage and split ins.

8.   Conditioning: Conditioning is to coat and protect the hair. Therefore with proper condition your ends shouldn’t split. Be sure that the conditioner touches all ends of the hair. You should allow the conditioner to sit for atleast 5-10 min.  Deep conditioning is very important all year around, especially in dryer months.
