My natural struggle!

Hello everyone! I've been natural for 10 months and have probably only had 1-2in of growth. I just created a hair regimen so hopefully that works but I still dont know why im not having growth. Im a 4B/4C, my hair feels like it stays dry, and I have major shrinkage. I have major shedding as well. My hair hasnt reached shoulder length since I was a kid. Any and all help would be appreciated! Thanks 😋My natural struggle!-imageuploadedbycurltalk1379825397.732755.jpgMy natural struggle!-imageuploadedbycurltalk1379825426.529764.jpg
We all have shedding and dryness issues at some point.

The only thing I can tell ya is keep hydrating it. Wet it often and be sure to seal in that moisture with the oil of your choice. Personally I can only use clear products on my low porosity hair because creamy products just sit on top doing nothing. I use curl activator for moisture and EcoStyler for curl definition. You'd be amazed how good of a moisturizer activator is!

Be sure to deep condition often. I'd shoot for once a week. You can use whatever works. Leave it on overnight when you can. I've been skipping this and my hair is notably dryer. Plus it's about to be cooler weather which is time to up the moisture! You don't have to break the bank. Just use what works for you.

Also make sure you're eating right, and drinking plenty of water. A good multivitamin wouldn't be a bad idea either. Healthy hair starts before it actually grows out of you. Once you're taking care of it inside and out you'll see a big difference!!

Also, not everyone's hair grows at the same rate, so patience is key. Don't set milestones for yourself by another curly's hair. My hair has been loose for over 2 years now. I know some curly girls have hair well past armpit length by this time. Mine is nearly there stretched, but it's so curly it just looks like a very short bob. I get hair envy like everyone else. But I know it will grow. That's what hair does.

Hang in there. It'll be worth it in the end.

I moisturize with 2 diff moisturizers twice a day. One leave-in and a hydrating curl pudding. I just started using my oil and Hawaiian Silk instead of the Cantu leave-in. The Cantu dries my hair out. And I take vitamins, biotin, drink water, and try to eat right. I havent been taking it lately but when I was there wasnt a difference.

Have you tried to use a water based product or leave in then apply oil and then a cream? Sorry so many questions I am just trying to help you the best I can...
Most of my products are water based. Co-Wash couple days a week
