    Default 10 Steps to Grow Black Hair Longer

    Here's another article from Hairfinity that was in their newsletter that I thought was really informative and wanted to share with you guys. I don't know if it's been posted before, but someone new might not have seen it.

    STEP 1: USE A GENTLE SHAMPOO.*MANY COMMON SHAMPOOS CONTAIN HARSH SULFATES THAT CAN STRIP YOUR HAIR, CAUSING IT TO BECOME DRY AND EVENTUALLY LEADING TO BREAKAGE. A GOOD GENTLE SHAMPOOS IS ESSENTIOUS EXONERATE.*

    HARSH SULFATES INCLUDE:
    AMMONIUM LAURETH SULFATE*
    AMMONIUM LAURYL SULFATE*
    TEA LAURETH SULFATE*
    TEA LAURYL SULFATE*
    SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE

    THESE TYPES OF HARSH SHAMPOOS SHOULD BE USED FOR CLARIFYING ONLY. A CLARIFYING SHAMPOO CAN BE USED ONCE MONTHLY, IF AT ALL. CLARIFYING SHAMPOOS CAN BE USED TO REMOVE EXCESS BUILDUP. THE FOLLOWING SULFATES ARE GENTLE AND WILL NOT DAMAGE YOUR HAIR:


    POLYOXETHYLENE FATTY ALCOHOLS*
    PEG 80*
    SORBITAN LAURATE*
    DECYL POLYGLUCOSE*
    COCAMIDOPRPYL BETAINE*
    SODIUM MYRETH SULFATE*
    SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE

    STEP 2: USE PROTEIN TREATMENTS TO REBUILD HAIR STRUCTURE AND STRENGTH.*YOUR HAIR IS ABOUT 88% PROTEIN. THESE PROTEINS ARE OF A HARD FIBROUS TYPE KNOWN AS KERATIN. WHEN HAIR IS CHEMICALLY STRAIGHTENED, THESE BONDS ARE BROKEN, CAUSING THE HAIR TO LOSE STRENGTH. IF THIS PROTEIN IS NOT REPLACED, IT WILL EVENTUALLY CAUSE THE HAIR TO BREAK. EGG TREATMENTS ARE EFFECTIVE PROTEIN TREATMENT FOR BLACK HAIR AND USUALLY STOPS BREAKAGE IMMEDIATELY. A PROTEIN TREATMENT SHOULD BE USED EVERY OTHER WEEK (FOR CHEMICALLY RELAXED OR DAMAGED HAIR). IF USING AN EGG TREATMENT, HEAT SHOULD NOT BE APPLIED. THE TREATMENT SHOULD BE APPLIED TO THE HAIR AND COVERED WITH A PLASTIC CAP FOR 60 MINUTES. IF USING ANOTHER TYPE OF PROTEIN PRODUCT, IT SHOULD BE APPLIED AND COVERED WITH A PLASTIC CAP FOR 10-15 MINUTES. FOR HEALTHY HAIR, A PROTEIN TREATMENT SHOULD BE USED EVERY OTHER WEEK, ALTERNATING WITH A MOISTURE TREATMENT.

    STEP 3: USE MOISTURE TREATMENTS.*MOISTURE TREATMENTS HELP BUILD HAIR’S RESILIENCE AND PREVENT BREAKAGE. IF PROTEIN IS NOT BALANCED WITH MOISTURE, IT CAN LEAD TO BREAKAGE. A GOOD MOISTURE TREATMENT FOR BLACK HAIR IS ESSENTIOUS REJUVENATE. IT CAN BE USED AFTER YOUR PROTEIN TREATMENT. OR ON ALTERNATING WEEKS (ONE SHAMPOO DO THE PROTEIN, AND THEN THE OTHER SHAMPOO DO THE MOISTURE.) THIS TREATMENT MAY NOT LEAVE YOUR HAIR FEELING AS "SMOOTH" AS MANY CONDITIONERS THAT CONTAIN SILICONES. YOU CAN USE ANY INSTANT CONDITIONER THAT YOU LIKE AFTER YOUR TREATMENTS TO GET A SMOOTHER FEEL. INSTANT CONDITIONERS ARE NOT NECESSARY AND DO NOT NEED TO BE APPLIED WITH HEAT. IF PRE-SHAMPOOING IS DONE, THE MOISTURE TREATMENT CAN BE SKIPPED.

    STEP 4: USE WATER AND OIL BASED MOISTURIZERS CORRECTLY.*YOUR HAIR MAY BE DRY EVEN THOUGH YOU ARE USING A VARIETY OF MOISTURE PRODUCTS ON IT. THE REASON IS THAT OILS AND OTHER MOISTURIZING PRODUCTS THAT CONTAIN PETROLATUM, LANOLIN, AND MINERAL OIL DO NOT MOISTURIZE YOUR HAIR EFFECTIVELY. INSTEAD THEY SEAL MOISTURE IN OR OUT OF YOUR HAIR. THEY SHOULD ONLY BE USED TO SEAL THE HAIR AND ADD SHINE. WATER BASED MOISTURIZERS EFFECTIVELY PENETRATE AND MOISTURIZE THE HAIR.*

    SOME EXAMPLES ARE: TRIPLE MOISTURE SILK TOUCH LEAVE-IN*
    PROFECTIV ANTI-TANGLE LEAVE-IN*
    PROFECTIV MEGA GROWTH*
    CANTU SHEA BUTTER GROW STRONG*
    ELASTA QP MANGO BUTTER*
    CANTU SHEA BUTTER LEAVE-IN*
    YOU CAN ALSO TRY APPLYING YOUR OIL MOISTURIZER AFTER RINSING THE MOISTURE TREATMENT TO COMBAT DRYNESS.
    USE A LIGHT OIL MOISTURIZER FOLLOWING THE APPLICATION OF THESE WATER BASED MOISTURIZER TO SEAL MOISTURE IN THE SHAFT.

    STEP 5: USE HAIR VITAMINS TO INCREASE YOUR GROWTH RATE AND LENGTHEN YOUR NATURAL GROWTH PHASE.HAIR GROWS AT AN AVERAGE RATE OF ABOUT 1/2 INCH PER MONTH. YOUR HAIR VITAMIN SHOULD CONTAIN NUTRIENTS SUCH AS BIOTIN AND FOLIC ACID THAT MAKE YOUR HAIR GROW FASTER. ALSO, THEY SHOULD CONTAIN MSM WHICH LENGTHENS YOUR NATURAL ANAGEN, OR GROWTH PHASE. THIS ALLOWS YOUR HAIR TO GROW MUCH LONGER. YOUR ANAGEN PHASE, OR GROWTH PHASE, IS GENETICALLY DETERMINED AND LIMITS THE MAXIMUM LENGTH THAT YOUR HAIR CAN REACH. THE HAIR GROWTH PHASE (ANAGEN PHASE) IS ONE OF THREE PHASES (GROWTH, RESTING, AND SHEDDING) YOUR HAIR GOES THROUGH DURING ITS CYCLE. FOR EXAMPLE, A PERSON WITH A 2 YEAR ANAGEN MAY ONLY GROW HAIR TO THEIR SHOULDERS BEFORE IT ENTERS THE RESTING PHASE. ON THE OTHER HAND, A PERSON WITH A 4 YEAR ANAGEN WILL GROW HAIR DOWN THEIR BACK BEFORE IT ENTERS THE RESTING PHASE. LEARN HOW HAIRFINITY VITAMINS CAN HELP YOUR HAIR GROW LONGER.

    ORDER THE VITAMINS NOW

    STEP 6: USE A WIDE TOOTH COMB.

    STEP 7: USE A SATIN SCARF/ PILLOWCASE FOR SLEEPING.COTTON SCARVES AND PILLOWCASES CAN ABSORB MUCH NEEDED MOISTURE FROM THE HAIR. SATIN DOES NOT HAVE THIS EFFECT. IT ALLOWS YOUR HAIR TO RETAIN MOISTURE, WHILE PROTECTING IT FROM FRICTION AND DAMAGE.

    STEP 8: LIMIT HEAT STYLING TO ONCE WEEKLY, AND USE THERMAL PROTECTANTS.*HEAT STYLING CAN DAMAGE YOUR HAIR, ESPECIALLY IF DONE TOO OFTEN. WHEN YOU STRAIGHTEN YOUR HAIR WITH HEAT, YOU ARE TEMPORARILY ALTERING THE PROTEIN BONDS IN YOUR HAIR AND WEAKENING IT. A GOOD THERMAL PROTECTANT THAT CAN BE USED WHEN FLAT IRONING HAIR IS SILK ELEMENTS MEGASILK HEAT PROTECTION SPRAY. IT IS ONLY AVAILABLE AT SALLY’S BEAUTY SUPPLY. IT SHOULD BE SPRAYED DIRECTLY ON EACH SECTION OF HAIR JUST BEFORE IT IS FLAT IRONED.

    STEP 9: WEAR PROTECTIVE STYLES.*TO MINIMIZE BREAKAGE AND RETAIN MOISTURE, TRY WEARING YOUR HAIR IN A PROTECTIVE STYLE AT LEAST 3 DAYS A WEEK. PROTECTIVE STYLES ARE THOSE WHICH DO NOT EXPOSE THE ENDS, SUCH AS BUNS AND FRENCH TWISTS

    STEP 10: PROPERLY NEUTRALIZE AFTER APPLYING CHEMICAL RELAXERS.- ALSO, WHEN YOU RELAX YOUR HAIR, YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE YOU PROPERLY NEUTRALIZE. YOU WILL FIRST WASH ALL RELAXER OUT WITH WATER. WASH WITH NEUTRALIZING SHAMPOO AT LEAST THREE TIMES. THEN APPLY THE NEUTRALIZING SHAMPOO ONCE MORE AND LET SIT FOR 10 MINUTES. THEN WASH AND PROCEED WITH CONDITIONERS AND STYLING.

    IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE LONGEST HAIR POSSIBLE YOU NEED TO DO THE FOLLOWING:

    1. STOP HAIR BREAKAGE - BY FOLLOWING THE HAIR CARE TECHNIQUES IN SECRETS FOR FASTER HAIR GROWTH, YOU CAN MINIMIZE YOUR HAIR BREAKAGE AND ALLOW YOU HAIR TO REACH IT MAXIMUM LENGTH.

    2. INCREASE ANAGEN (GROWTH) PHASE- USING HAIR VITAMINS WITH MSM WILL NATURALLLY LENGTHEN YOUR ANAGEN PHASE AND ALLOW YOUR HAIR TO GROW MUCH LONGER BEFORE ENTERING THE RESTING AND SHEDDING PHASES.

    3. ADDRESS ANY OTHER PROBLEMS THAT MAY LIMIT GROWTH- USING SPECIFIC TYPES OF PRODUCTS AS PART OF A HAIR CARE REGIMEN CAN HELP REDUCE BREAKAGE AND INCREASE YOUR HAIR LENGTH.**

    My name was Antonio West. I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot. I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

    A Grand Jury of my mommy's peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty... too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.

    See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’. Oh, and President Obama didn’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder. He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me - so why should he care? I’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation's history, but the media didn’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

    There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’. So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me. There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me. I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller - I no longer have my life.

    Isn’t this a great country, or what?
    So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon or Michael Brown’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me. Tell your friends about me, tell your families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon and Michael Brown.

    I won’t hold my breath. I don’t have to anymore,

    Antonio West
