How To Grow Beautiful Healthy Afro Hair – Top Tips from Afrotherapy Hair Salon in Edmonton, London

So you want to grow your hair and don’t know where to start? It’s understandable that for many women with Afro and multi-textured hair, growing their hair seems like an impossible task.

When handled with lots of care, Afro hair can be grown to great lengths and it is important to keep in mind that healthy hair should be your main priority. The healthier your hair is, the faster it can grow.

Below are a few tips on how to grow natural hair fast and tips to keep natural Afro hair healthy brought to you by Afrotherapy Hair Salon in Edmonton, London, experts in Afro hair and multi-textured curly hair. 

What Makes Afro & Multi-textured Hair So Difficult to Grow?

Compared with other hair types, the hair shaft of Afro hair is flat with a more twisted structure and a thinner diameter.

The curly nature of Afro hair causes difficulties for the natural oils produced by the scalp, to travel up to the ends of the hair. This leaves the hair more prone to dryness, thus making it more vulnerable to breakage.

Treatments are a great way to keep your Afro or curly hair healthy and strong. If your hair is breaking or damaged we advise visiting us to get a deep conditioning treatment. Our treatments will help moisturise and condition afro hair and are designed to infuse the hair with moisture leaving it soft and manageable.

The ends of Afro hair usually receive the least oil and tend to be the most damaged and dried out part of the hair. Our Renew Strength Treatment can help bring health back to your overall hair. It is a 3-step customised treatment for clients needing a treatment for moderate to severely damaged afro hair. This customisable system will reconstruct weak, damaged hair as well as increase the elasticity and strength of the afro or multi-textured hair.

Top Foods to Grow Afro Hair

Healthy hair foods can help you achieve better, stronger, shinier and thicker hair from the inside out. By following a healthy, balanced eating plan, get hair that is lustrous shiny and resilient, and a mane you have always dreamed of. Eat the correct balance of nutrients and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to remain shiny, lustrous and strong.

Food that helps with the growth of your hair should be consumed more.  Get your vitamins naturally from the food you consume, primarily fruit and vegetables.Vitamin C is vital for strong hair and a deficiency in Vitamin C can also cause hair breakage. Blueberries are a great source of Vitamin C which you should consider consuming more of.

Proteins are known to enhance and strengthen hair strands – Greek yoghurt, eggs and cheese are great sources of protein. For healthy hair follicles, opt for foods rich in unsaturated fats such as salmon and avocado,  that are rich in omega3-fatty acid and protein.

You can also supplement with several vitamins to help boost hair growth. While this is optional, it can also contribute to speedy hair growth.

Hair Care Routine to Help Grow Afro Hair

Trim your hair when needed:  The regular trimming of hair can do wonders in terms of growth. Begin trimming your hair on a monthly basis to see the best results. In addition to this, when your hair gets is constantly dry, it is time to trim off the hair.

Wrap your hair with a satin bonnet at night: At night, it is advisable to cover hair with a bonnet or silk scarf, in order to avoid constant dryness – allow your hair to soak in all that moisture and oil you have been supplying it. A satin scarf is recommended, as unlike other fabrics,  satin does not absorb oil, but rather allows your hair to soak it up instead.

Braid your hair often: Braiding hair reduces the exposure of hair to harsh environments, hence less damage is done to your hair. There are different styles of braids to go for and at Afrotherapy we create beautiful braided hairstyles to help you maintain your natural hair in style.
