Too often, multi-cultural hair is subjected to chemicals and extreme heat to make it seem longer and smoother. But what this does is weaken the hair and prevents it from growing. To grow your hair longer and faster, the solutions are quite simple. A big part of growing hair faster is knowing which products to use and how on your hair.
Here is a guide on how to grow multi-cultural hair faster. It has been broken down into three main parts, all equally important; General Maintenance, Boosting Growth, and What to avoid.
How to Grow or Regenerate Hair Growth – General Maintenance.
Before you go off trying complicated tricks and methods to get your hair to grow quickly, try a few simple maintenance routines. Often, the simple things you do every day make the biggest difference in the health and length of your hair.
- Determine your hair type.
To achieve the best results, it is important to know your hair type. This will help you in choosing the right products and giving the best care to your hair. There are three general types of multi-cultural hair.
Kinky hair – this is the hardest hair type to maintain. The reason for this is that it is weak due to fewer cuticle layers available to protect the hair. Being very fragile, it requires careful handling to prevent breakage or any other kind of damage. Kinky hair tends to have very tight curls and exhibits a lot of shrinkage after a wash.
Curly hair – the curls are looser than in kinky hair and tend to be springy. It is soft and fine making it one of the easiest hair types to style.
Wavy hair – has large curls in waveforms. It tends to be a bit heavy, staying close to the head unlike kinky and curly hair. It falls between kinky and curly hair when it comes to difficulty in styling. Generally easy to maintain.
Note that this is a general classification. Under each type there are several subtypes indicating the wide variations that occur in multi-cultural hair.
- Be sparse with your hair washes.
Sometimes we tend to get too generous with scrubbing out our hair. Washing the hair too frequently strips the hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and vulnerable to breakage. If you are washing your hair daily or even every other day, that is too frequent. Switch to washing it at most twice a week. If you notice your hair breaking easily after washing (especially if you have kinky hair) try washing it once every two weeks.
- 3. Use Good2Gro Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner as a Co-Wash as a pre-shampoo before washing.
A pre-shampoo is a type of conditioning treatment that is applied on hair before using the actual shampoo. It is thick hence allowing it to infuse a coating over hair strands. The importance of this is to protect hair that maybe dry and breaking. After co-washing your hair with Good2Gro Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner it will still feel soft and smooth.
- Use Good2Gro Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo.
Generally, multi-cultural hair is dry, brittle and damages easily. Most shampoos on the market are a little brutal due to their harsh ingredients which is no good for any kind of hair, especially multi-cultural hair. You therefore need to be extra careful about which shampoo you are using.
A rule of thumb is to stick to Good2Gro Sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates have been blamed for causing hair to get frizzy and to dry out. Multi-cultural hair is already brittle enough without subjecting it to further harshness.
Good2Gro Sulfate-free shampoo is great at protecting hair from dryness and leaving your strands feeling supple and soft. Some of the best oils to look for on the market are already in Good2Gro’s Sulfate-free Shampoo.
- Drying your hair.
After washing your hair, the best way to dry it is by rubbing it gently with a towel or letting it air-dry. Never use a blow dryer as the excess heat will weaken and damage your hair. If for any reason you must use your blow dryer, use the coolest setting. You can also wrap the hair in a silk scarf and leave it to dry through the night.
- Use Good2Gro Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner for deep conditioning.
As much as you may try to prevent it, washing your hair will still wash away some of its natural oils. Leaving it like that risk’s breakage and split ends. The best way to get it back in shape is using a conditioner. It helps to restore oils and moisture to your hair as well as nourish it. Our Ultra Moisturizing Conditioner is thick and sticks more to the hair and scalp. You should use this deep conditioning method once every week though not on the same day you are doing your weekly hair wash. After using Good2Gro your hair will have body, bounce, and feel softer.
- Use Good2Gro Ultra Hydrating Leave-In-Conditioner twice every week.
There are conventional Leave-N Conditioners and there is Good2Gro Ultra Hydrating Leave-In-Conditioner. Good2Gro Ultra Hydrating Leave-In-Conditioner is light and designed for use on dry hair or after washing your hair. Good2Gro Ultra Hydrating Leave-In-Conditioner is infused with emollients that adhere to the hair strand and sinks in deeper into the hair, helping to nourish it from the root to tip.
- Moisturize with Good2Gro Curl & Style Crème.
Good2Gro Curl & Style Crème is one of the best things you can do to your hair is to keep it moisturized. Having adequate moisture encourages fast growth and protects hair from breakage and split ends. Additionally, it keeps the hair looking shiny and feeling soft.
Before you can even start considering using any store-bought moisturizer make sure that you are already moisturizing the natural way, drinking enough water. When it comes to moisturizing from the outside, try Good2Gro Curl & Style Crème. This will ensure that your hair is always adequately hydrated. Some of the best ingredients for multi-cultural hair moisturizers are included in Good2Gro, olive oil, coconut oil, mango, and pure shea butter.
- Good2Gro Edge Resuscitator.
While your hair already has its own natural oils, it is important to use other oils to promote growth and protect the hair. These oils are especially good at encouraging multi-cultural hair to grow faster.
When applying Good2Gro Edge Resuscitator, make sure to massage deeply to ensure that it gets deep inside the hair follicles as well as on the surface of the hair.
- Protect hair ends.
Every three to four months you should trim your hair. This gets rid of any split ends allowing hair to continue growing properly without further damage. When trimming, you only need to cut about a 1/2 inch maybe a bit more depending on your hair.
To keep your ends in great condition, use protective hairstyles such as bans and not-so-tight braids. Letting hair fall freely exposes the ends to damage. At night wrap the hair in a silk scarf or sleep on a satin pillow. These little changes help a lot.

- 2. A healthy diet.
One of the best ways to keep your hair in good form and to encourage growth is by eating well. Eat a healthy diet that contains plenty of healthy proteins.
Below are the things you should avoid doing to maximize your hair growth.
- Heat treatments.
Any treatment that uses heat to style hair is bad for you. Things like blow dryers and flat irons literally cook your hair, making it extremely weak and easy to break. You hair can still look good without having to use heat on it.
- Harsh chemicals.
Make sure the hair products you buy are not full of harsh chemicals. These days you can get natural and organic hair products that, though may be a bit more expensive, provide a much better alternative to chemical-ridden products. These chemical products may make your hair look and feel good but over time it destroys your hair.
Be especially careful about hair dyes, chemical relaxers, sulfates-containing products, and alcohol-containing products. The extra investment you make on natural products with organic oils is well worth it.
- Extensions and tight styles.
Styles that rely on tightly wrapping your hair is not good, especially for your hair ends. When stretched or wrapped too tight, hair tends to get weak and can break easily. Also, it prevents hair from continuing with its normal growth. On the other hand, braids and other protective styles encourage hair to grow faster by protecting your ends from splitting which means less hair has to be trimmed.
- Too much stress.
Too much stress has been scientifically proven to be behind hair loss problems such as Telogen effluvium where hair essentially stops growing and begins to fall out and Alopecia aerate where hair follicles are attacked by the body’s immune system.
