How Can You Grow Long, Relaxed Hair?

To grow long, relaxed hair, use a deep conditioning treatment every week, apply natural oils to seal in moisture, and moisturize hair daily with an oil-free hair lotion. Use the proper styling tools on your hair to keep it relaxed and healthy.

  1. Use deep conditioning treatments

    Apply a deep conditioning treatment to the hair once a week, and follow the product instructions. If you are unable to use a deep conditioning treatment, use a regular conditioner; wrap your hair in a hot, damp towel; and leave it on your hair for 20 to 30 minutes.

  2. Use natural oils to seal in moisture

    Wash the deep conditioning treatment from the hair with warm water, then rinse with cold water to close the hair cuticle. Apply a natural oil such as coconut, almond or keratin oil to seal in the moisture.

  3. Moisturize the hair daily

    Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of oil-free hair lotion into your palm, and massage it into the hair and scalp. Add a small amount of oil to seal in the moisture from the lotion, and leave it in the hair for 24 hours.

  4. Use the right tools for your hair

    Avoid using styling tools such as blow dryers and flat irons, as these can damage relaxed hair. Use rollers and a wide-tooth comb to style hair and keep it smooth and silky.
