7 Tips on How to Grow out Relaxed Hair without the Big Chop ...


How to grow out relaxed hair without cutting it and having to spend more than a year or two regaining all that precious length?

Now that, my ladies, is a question that we definitely need to find an answer for!

I understand that growing out relaxed hair is a unique experience and that copy-pasting somebody else’s routine, expecting it to work like a charm is a huge gamble, yet believe that some tips for growing out hair are, in fact, universal and definitely worth trying.

And the following seven definitely fit that description:

1. Get It Trimmed

Growing out relaxed hair will be much easier if you decide to change your hairstyle a bit and maybe go a little bit shorter in the beginning of this process.2

You can skip it, of course, but don’t skip your future hair appointments – chop off that damaged length bit by bit instead of just waiting for it to break off and your hair will be more manageable and healthier during your transition.

2. Explore the Benefits of Co-Washing

Still wondering how to grow out relaxed hair without cutting?

Well, I have something for you!

It’s called co-washing and basically means you’ll wash your hair with a conditioner instead of shampoo!

I know… I know… not exactly what you’ve imagined doing but, trust me, it isn’t as bad as it sounds!

Conditioner will help keep your hair optimally moisturized, nurturing it from root to tip and the effect will be the same even without a shampoo.

After all, you’ve probably heard ladies say wonderful things about this interesting washing technique – do you think it would have so many fans if it were so-so and not great?

3. Moisturize

Next on my list of tips for growing out hair is plain and simple – moisturize, moisturize and, when you think you’ve moisturized enough, moisturize some more!

Your new growth will definitely appreciate it and the same can be said about your damaged, relaxed length.

Moisturizing leave in conditioner you’ll apply after wash and before styling and detangling will nurture your two textures like a charm although your new growth will need a spritz of water as well, as your natural texture may prove to need some help with moisture retention.
