Contrary to what many may think, achieving healthy long natural hair can be very easy to achieve. We’ve all seen bloggers and vloggers who have been able to grow their hair long without taking hair growth pills or engage in any ridiculous activity that promises long hair.
What many don’t realize is that simple hair care practices such as washing and caring for the hair are easy things that all contributes to healthy hair long hair.
So if you’re wondering how you can grow your natural 4c hair fast, I recommend doing these three simple things.
Hair and scalp that are cleansed often will be able to grow to its full length and retain as much length as possible. I recommend a bi-weekly cleanse with a sulphate free shampoo such as black soap. You can also cleanse your hair in between these shampoo washes with a cleansing conditioner; this method is known as co-washing.

One of the reasons why it’s harder to grow Black hair long is because its coily nature makes it difficult for the natural oils that are produced by the scalp to be evenly distributed to the entire length of the hair. As a result, your hair will feel dry more often. This will then lead to breakage and stunted growth.
To avoid this, you’ll need to do a deep conditioning treatment every time your hair is cleansed so that moisture is restored back into your hair.
You will also need to apply leave-in conditioner in your hair a few times a week, so that your hair can stay soft. As a result, you’ll be able to reduce breakage and grow long natural 4c hair fast.

Another reason you’re not seeing length might be because of the type of hairstyles that you’re doing that’s damaging your hair.
Lazy hairstyles that are meant for you to forget about your hair, as well as tiny, heavy and tight hairstyles are all enemies of long hair and should be avoided at all cost.
While damaged hair can be cut off and regrown, a damaged scalp might never heal.
So it’s best to stay away from hairstyles that compromise the health of your hair and scalp. For a stylish hairstyle that will also help you to retain length, I recommend low manipulative hairstyles such as buns, flat twists, two-strand twists, crotchet braids, and pin-up styles
