Want Longer Natural Hair? 5 Expert-Approved Ways To Maximize Growth
To avoid creating tension that ends up in
permanent damage, avoid keeping protective styles in for long periods of time or wearing protective styles back to back. “For vacation or a few weeks is fine, but once you take it out, leave your hair out for a considerable amount of time,” says Lenzy.

look (and feel) stressed out. So, be kind to your strands and let your body do the rest of the work.
