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

1. Start off with a trim

If you have 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 conditioning 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.

Original Honey Rain Juice Detangler
Kimberley (Harlesden, GB)
This is essential for your hair care!

I usually wait to see the overall results before submitting a review. After using this product for over a year and previously trying other brands, I can say that it is the best by far. It detangles and provides moisture to my hair. I have seen the growth and retention since it was recommended. Certainly a must have!


No grease !! I tried the Quench Anti Breakage Cream my hair is super hydrated and soft. Definitely will buy again as this moisturises my hair superbly. Lovely product.

Simply the best!!!!

It's not very often that I'm impressed by someone. I saw Sal online talking about her hair products. Her passion for all things hair coupled with her inspiration from our Creator further impressed me. I tried the Grow It Long Scalp Serum and the Super Growth Root Energiser [which I've only used once]. I actually cannot believe the transformation my hair has achieved! I had lots and lots of hair loss and bald patches and the combination of these products has improved my hair so much, I'm shocked at the results!!! I have posted pictures here so you can see the results for yourself. The first [CURRENT] picture was taken on the 10th June 2021 and a second [BEFORE] picture was taken the 20th May 2021 , both on the same side of my head. Sal you are such an inspirational person with a beautiful spirit. I thank you for all you have done to improve our hair and all you continue to do for the Black Family.

The Back2School Afro-curly kids Moisture Kit

Works wonders

I brought this for my 2 year old who has quite thick coily hair. The honey rain detangles his hair so quickly I can literally run my fingers through it. The heaven milk, is nice Silky and moisturising the sun light cream is great on the ends of his hair to lock everything in

TRIPLE M Miracle Moisture Milk

Absolutely love this! I brought this for my daughter but decided to use some in my hair the other day and I couldn’t believe how moisturising it was and the moisture last for a few days, my hair is usually quite dry. Will definitely purchase again
