Growing your hair long

Ouidad Deep Treatment

Dear Ouidad: My hair is wavy and not really thick. I want it long but it breaks off in the back and will only grow a certain length. How do I get it long?

Ouidad: Using a Deep Treatment, with amino acids and essential vitamins and minerals, is the most important step in restoring and maintaining your hair’s health and beauty. I recommend doing a treatment every two weeks to help strengthen hair and enable it to grow. Due to a curl’s tendency to lose nutrients and moisture, frequent deep conditioning is necessary to replenish the mane’s strength, allowing each strand to regain its internal integrity and body and minimize the tendency to frizz. Also getting regular trims to cut off the damaged ends is a good way to keep hair healthy.


I had a hairstylist with hair past her bra line tell me that she grown her hair from shoulder length to past her bra line in a year and a half. What was her secret? She said she trimmed her hair *every* month 1/8 of an inch. I have been trying to grow my hair long for 2 years has hovered over my breasts this whole time. I started trimming my hair every month and lo... it has 'grown longer' - which seems to defy logic. However, upon inspection, the ends of each hair shaft used to be really thin (the remaining piece after the split end has seperated) and now, increasingly, my ends look thicker. My hairstylist also explained how a split end will continue splitting up the shaft. So I feel confident that in a year or two I will have gotten to all the split ends. Now I understand why trimming is recommended. I am also a 2c/3a. I am new to this - I've been cowashing for 2 weeks now, and my hair is changing.

how often do i trim my hair..iam a 2c/3a??
