Afro-textured hair is a term used to refer to the natural texture of black African hair that has not been altered by hot combs, flat irons, or chemicals (through perming, relaxing, or straightening).
Afro-textured hair appears and feels denser than straight hair. For several reasons, possibly including its relatively flat cross section this hair type conveys a dry appearance. Its shape makes it very prone to breakages when combed or brushed. It density also makes it very versatile and unlike any other hair texture.

Historically, sub- Saharan Africans, as in every culture, developed hairstyles that defined status, or identity, in regards to age, ethnicity, wealth, social rank, marital status, religion, fertility, manhood, and death. Hair was carefully groomed by those who understand the aesthetic standard, as the social implication of hair grooming were a significant part of the community life.
How to we take care of our hair has a direct affect on how on how our hair grows! Yes over styling and rough handling of your hair may be the reason you are not experience proper hair growth.
1.    Drink your water and lots of it.
Many people with long health hair and skin will tell you that they
drink the recommended daily amount of water, about eight glasses a day.
2.    Diet and Nutrition.
Eating healthy plays a very important part in hair growth, your hair needs the proper nutrients in order to look its best and to grow at its optimum length.
3.    Minimize heat.
Heat is NOT our friend. Avoid it as much as possible. If you must use the heat, then use a heat protectant to minimize damage.
4.    Handle your hair with extreme care
Be patient and take your hair. Our hair is extremely fragile and requires gentle styling, handling, and products.
5.    Keep your hair clean.
Shampoo your hair regularly to keep your hair follicles from clogging with dirt and excess sebum (i.e. natural oils produced by the scalp).

Despite all of the myths and beliefs, African hair CAN AND DOES grow!
