For Black women, one of our most frustrating hair issues is figuring out how to get our hair to grow to Keke Palmer-esque lengths. No worries--we went straight to the top for answers! Here, Amoy Couture Hair Salon owner and celeb hairstylist Amoy Pitters (her clients include Joy Bryant, Ciara and Nia Long) shares her top tips for going from short strands to long locks, the healthy way.
“To prevent breakage, I recommend shampooing every week,” says Pitters. “The belief that Black woman don’t need to shampoo often is a myth! All the dead skin laying on the scalp is the main culprit in lack of hair growth.” Try using a soap-free shampoo like LOreal EverStrong Sulfate-Free Reconstruct Shampoo ($6.99).
