How to grow long afro hair? 10 hacks!

How to grow long afro hair? 10 hacks!

Help - My afro hair just... does not grow!!

Sal Root2tip founder

Here are 10 simple tips to help you grow long afro hair this year!

1. Start off with a trim

If you hace split ends, you will not see hair growth this year! Your hair will be in a cycle of grow-break-grow-break! STOP this by giving your ends a good trim, with the correct hair trimming scissors. (You can grow long afro hair this year!)

2. Deep condition weekly

If deep conditionning is not a part of your usual weekly or 2 weekly regime, try it! Deep conditionning will give your hair a real boost of moisture and feed the strands from the inside out. If you really want to grow long afro hair this year steam your hair for even better results!

3. Protective style

If you like to try every style you see on YouTube - STOP give your hair a break with a safe protective style. A wig weave, Kinky twists - it's your choice - just leave it alone for periods of the year - up to 8-10 weeks each time and you will notice you grow long afro hair each time you do your protective season.

4. Check your shampoo

If you use a shampoo that leaves you hair feeling stripped and your scalp dry - check for sulphates free. Switch to a natural shampoo like our luxurious Stimulate & Cleanse shampoo with Ginger and Aloe extracts. Using SLS free shampoo is better for your hair and scalp.

5. Start to cowash

If you like to wash your hair midweek, or maybe you don't? Try co-washing 1x a week to increase your moisture levels this year. Your hair will have no chance to break if it is moisturised!

6. Treat your scalp to daily massages

Your scalp is where you hair grows from it should not be an after thought, if il feels sore and dry - treat it! Using our Harvest hair growth pack indulge in weekly massages, daily usage of our oils promotes hair growth as you will increase blood to the roots under the scalp to feed them. Try it!

7. Layer up the moisture

Sometimes on product alone is not enough to keep hair from feeling dry, especially during the winter! Layer up your products. Create a cocktail of natural ingredients.

We love out Triple M Milk + Butter our our Honey-rain juice + Twist & Curls pudding.

8. Limit heat!

Stop using heat regularly, your hair will be much stronger and retain length much easier. Heat from a blow-dryer drains hair of hydration, the same for those flat-irons!

9. Take a goo hair vitamin

Try a goog multi-vitamin to keep your internal hair nutrition at the optimum levels, hair is grown internally, so it need a good balance of vits + healthy foods, proteins, etc.

10. Set a goal to grow longer hair

If you hace not written down how many inches of hair you want to grow, or set a goal to just look after your hair so it grows, then do so now. Without a goal, its easy to become distracted. If you can achieve 4 inches or more this year, then why not? The year will pass by anyhow! Make it different this time.

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell


I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!


I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.
