I did the Big Chop almost a month ago. I’ve been without a relaxer for 10 months, but my hair isn’t growing as fast as I want to, and it is really thick. Are there any products that I can make my hair grow? —Taria

A good hair vitamin will help promote the proper nutritional support for hair as it grows. You hair is nourished through your blood circulation, so when you eat a well-balanced diet or add vitamin supplements to your diet, it is key to your growth process. The other way to boost hair growth is to increase the blood circulation to your scalp. Massage, exercise and stimulating natural oils, like tea tree and peppermint oils, may also help. You hair may have grown, but your Natural style may not showcase the newly acquired growth. Try twist-outs styles or look for products that feature ingredients that stretch your strands.
