Hey cremedelabelle — here are my fav tips to growing hair…
1). Drink plenty of water!
2). Moisturize. Hair loves moisture. (i.e. water based conditioners or moisturizers are great)
3). Protein treatments to make your hair stronger. (i.e. Aphogee 2-min reconstructor is great once or twice a month)
4). Make sure to use 3 & 4 in conjunction. Maintaining that moisture/protein balance is crucial! If your hair feels dry and brittle and breaks without much tension, moisturize. If your hair is extra stretchy or feels mushy when west, protein!
5). Stress less and let it grow. I notice when I play in my hair too often I put too much tension in it. Give your hair a rest and use less manipulation. I’ve been doing protective styles for the past 6 months and my hair has already grown 3 inches (hair typically grows at 1/4 to 1/2 and inch monthly).
