Hi my name is Reyonna Orr and I've been a stylist for more than ten years now. My shop is in Eastpointe, Michigan and I'm here to tell you how to grow long and strong African American hair. The first and most important step to growing African American hair is properly cleaning your hair. You do this by using a good shampoo. Shampooing your hair every other week is generally enough. Shampooing too often can cause hair to be dry and brittle and you don't want to do that when growing long and strong African American hair. The next step that is very important is keeping your hair properly oiled. Any oil can be used but I would suggest if you have very dry hair using a tea tree oil. But normal to oily hair, olive oil would be sufficient. The next step in growing long and strong African American hair is insuring that you cover your hair at night. This will help keep breakage at a minimum but finally if you really want to have long and strong African American hair I suggest that you see a stylist. A stylist can help you maintain your hair by insuring that your ends are properly clipped and insuring that you are using the proper product to make sure that your hair grows long and strong. Once again I'm Reyonna Orr and this is how to grow long and strong African American hair.
