Hi my name is Reyonna Orr and I've been a stylist for more than ten years. My shop is located in Eastpointe, Michigan and I'm here to tell you how to grow African American hair naturally. The first thing you need to do to grow African American hair is to ensure that you are keeping your hair clean. To do this you wash your hair about every other week. Washing your hair every other week ensures that you don't let it get too dry. When you wash your hair too often your scalp gets really dry and that could inhibit proper hair growth. The next step in growing your hair naturally is keeping your scalp oiled. To do this you part our hair and oil the scalp in your individual parts. If your hair is very dry I would recommend that you use tea tree oil. If your hair is not dry I would just recommend that you use an olive oil. The final step in growing your hair naturally is insuring that you cover your hair when you go to sleep at night. The common mistake is people with afros or braids just going to sleep with nothing on their heads. This causes breakage and only damages the hair as opposed to helping to grow it. My name is Reyonna Orr and this is how you grow black hair naturally.
