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.

"Absolutely amazing!"

I bought this product for my daughters. As predicted my phone was jammed with inbound voice notes praising not just the quality of the packaging (it's very eco friendly), but also the award winning hair care product, Quench anti breakage creme. I had been trying to persuade her to try the product for sometime but she claimed her own homemade natural products will suffice. Hear her now: "Dad! Dad! ...This product is the business!! My hair loves these products!". I'm waiting for the video she's making... coming soon!
Thanks a million to Root2tip haircare products.


Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍


Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.

Product quality

Second time ordering from here and I have noticed the packaging has changed with the hair milk. Well mine came with a flat top lid that you press on one side to open. Prior to that I noticed that the milk is a much more runny consistency than before which I am not not pleased with. Also the rain juice when sprayed in my daughters hair. It makes her hair very soapy and bubbly which I cannot understand and also not very happy with. The oil I need to give more time. But based on my experience Im not keen on ordering in a rush...

best de-tangler

Is hands down the best de-tangler we have used for our daughter.
