Tips to Achieve Faster Black Hair Growth

Many African American females believe their hair grows slower than other ethnicities. Since our hair is tight and coily, it appears that the hair is growing at a slower pace. Here are a few tips on how African Americans can grow their hair faster.


One of the supplements that I love to use is MSM. Your hair is primarily composed of sulfur and protein (keratin). Adding more sulfur to your body with supplements like Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), is a way to increase hair growth. Sulfur is known as the “beauty mineral.” Not only will this supplement grow your hair faster, but you also will see longer, stronger nails and glowing skin 분당스웨디시.

Bee Pollen

Bee pollen is another supplement that will help grow your hair faster. Be cautious with bee pollen and before using it make sure you are not allergic to it! If you are allergic, ingestion may result in a severe allergic reaction, including anaphylaxis, and an acute allergic response that may be life threatening. Do not take bee pollen if you are pregnant. Bee pollen has been used to stimulate hair growth because of its rich l-cysteine content. Many have seen one inch of hair growth within three weeks. It has been found that hair effectively grows back because of pollen. Bee pollen contains calcium and magnesium that help aid hair growth. Bee pollen has several other nutrients including vitamin C that maintains healthy hair, vitamin E and vitamin B3 that benefits and improves scalp circulation, copper, vitamins B5, B6, B12 and iron that strengthens hair and prevents hair loss. Manganese improves hair growth, while potassium promotes circulation and sulfur creates stronger hair.

Scalp Massage

Massage your scalp daily. Stimulation increases blood circulation to your head. Circulation is an important element that promotes hair growth. Massaging your scalp with the tips of your fingers will bring more nutrients to the hair roots. Adding warm oil will enhance the blood circulation. Massage your scalp 5-10 minutes a day using slow circular motions.

Inversion Method

You can grow an inch of hair in a week with the inversion method. The inversion method should be done for seven consecutive days, once a month. You must wait three weeks before attempting again or else it won’t work because your body adjusts to the extra blood flow. First, massage warm oil into your scalp. I recommend Jamaican Castor Oil. Massage your scalp for five minutes; oil is not necessary for the inversion method to work. Next, invert your body into an angle for four minutes. I like to do the yoga pose, downward facing dog, but you can also sit in a chair and slightly lower your head. If you feel dizzy or abnormal, slowly get out of the position. If you do decide to use oil, let the oil sit on your scalp for two hours; you can wash it out or leave it on your scalp. The inversion method will boost blood circulation, which ultimately promotes hair growth. Check with your doctor before doing the inversion method.

Iron and Zinc help hair follicles to grow. Iron and/or zinc deficiency can lead to hair loss. Hair is primarily composed of keratin which is protein. You can get iron and protein from red meat, chicken and fish. You can also get iron from spinach and other leafy vegetables including kale. Oysters and pumpkin seeds are loaded with zinc. If like me you are not getting enough zinc, you can take a zinc supplement. I take Zinc picolinate 50mg.
