I mentioned in my previous post that hair grows. Thats pretty much all it does. The big question isn't so much how to get your hair to grow as it is how to prevent breakage so that you retain the length that you have. While based on my research, improper combing is the biggest culprit, not far behind improper combing is... heat.
Too many of us succumb to the fiery plates of the flat iron. The truth is regardless of whether the plates are made ceramic/tourmaline/aluminum, regardless of whether you saturate your strands with heat protectants, the fact remains that frequently subjecting your hair to heat in excess of 250F will thwart your attempt at retaining length and achieve growth. There are better ways to get straight styles:
1. Wash and condition your hair
2. Apply the leave in of your choice.
3. Roll you hair in rollers of your choice (for a straight style, the bigger the rollers the better)
4. Sit under a hooded dryer
5. Once dry, take out the rollers, comb your hair and then wrap it around your head as shown below:
