It can grow as fast as a white person or any other ethnicity.

There's a MYTH that black hair can't grow fast which is UNTRUE.

Ladies, notice how when a man wants to start growing dreads or braids? Notice how their hair grows quick? Its because they don't put relaxers or any other chemicals in their hair!!!

Now looky here, I'm knocking anyone for wearing relaxed hair, do as you please but I'm just trying to set the myth straight.

Notice how women who have dreads have long hair. Its because they don't put chemicals in it

Yeah it does it's just we don't treat it well. Giving a child a relaxer will prevent it from growing. My cousin is full black and her hair almost touches her butt she is 10. Her mom constantly braids her hair every now and then she will straighten it but the rest it will be braided and it's long, thick, black textured hair. She gets compliments when we go out.

I also have cousins mixed with latino and their hair is unhealthy because it's not taken care of properly so that shows you if you are mixed doesn't automatically give you what we call ''good hair'' in our community.

It most certainly does! You have to know what to put in your hair and what it can take.

I hope your cousin never gets that beautiful long hair relaxed. Keep it natural for life.

You're right Queen. My cousin has dreads. And his hair hangs to the middle of his back. I've gone without a perm for 10 months. And it's braided now. Because I love braids..........because my hair, needed a break from perms.

Not that i'm promising never to use those products again. I'm just taking a break from it now. Hopefully, a long break.

I don't think she will. Her mom does hair real good and she just straightens it that's it. If I have a daughter I refuse to put relaxers in their hair when their young I will do exactly what my cousin did. Braid it I don't know how to braid but I will have to learn.

I went for about 6-7 months without relaxing my hair, and for the first 4 months it was great because I lived in the suburbs and there was relatively no humidity, but I say on campus in the city and my hair could not withstand this nasty humidity, so I gave in and relaxed it with a Just For Me relaxer, it came out great...I haven't had braids in my hair since 9th grade I think...almost 5 years

If you take care of your hair, your hair will grow. Only thing you need to do to your hair is shampoo, condition, and moisturize it. I know a lot of black women with long hair(long, healthy hair).

I'm going to try and fight the fight without perms. Because i'm a perm addict as well. That's why i had to get my hair braided. Because i i'm weak and i would have gave in..........lol!

And it feels great not to have a perm.

My hair is starting to get its thickness back.

You can stay away from them for good. All you need is encouragement. I constantly went on youtube and looked at natural hair journeys posted by women going natural. That's what gave me motivation.

Yeah that's was my problem moisturizing my hair. I hate it but I have to do it because my hair soaks it up so fast it gets dry.

Yes, us black folks need moisture. I have a small case of scalp psoriasis so, I have to make sure my scalp is moisturized as well as my ends. Fxybrwn20, you might want to try come virgin coconut oil,olive oil or jojoba oil... they actually penetrate the hair shaft.

Thanx Babe! And i will do that.......because i'm loving it so far. And so did I..........i was reading testimonials of black women going natural.......and the products they were using........and it motivated me as well. I'm just trying to keep it that way. And stay far away from the creamy crack. lol!!

I've been saying this for years. If you maintain your hair it will grow just fine. Using products like carrot oil and other natural products do WONDERS for your hair's strength and length. Most women who relax don't even realize that the reason they have to relax their hair every month or two is BECAUSE of the new growth of their own hair which they are stunting by putting more chemicals in it.

This is a myth that should be squashed. If black women are informed on ways to take care of their hair, then there would be no problems. The main reason why our hair doesn't grow is because of breakage.
