beauty should not be gatekept .
i remember back in 2010 when i started my natural hair journey, i made the mistake of watching youtube videos of girls who already had hair down to their asses. if i was smart i would have realized that genetics played a huge role quicker. instead i started looking for youtubers who started their journey from 2 inches, like me. where i was being rubbed the wrong way from all these “gurus” was when they swore up and down all you needed for long heir was patience.
but then they went as far as to gaslight: “don't listen to these other girls// don’t buy any products you just need a good routine// there is no magic potion//none of those things that promise long hair work”
these are lies lol
there is this thing certain women have where they don’t want you to have what they have because they think they're special. that was wordy but- you know those girls who don’t want to tell you where they got their shirt from (whole time it was just some mess produced shit from forever 21 that you ended up finding anyway)? yeah it’s like that. i have even heard of mothers being jealous of their daughters to the point where they don't teach them how to wash their face or vagina because they want something to be “wrong” with them. it’s a weird phenomena of women fighting as if there is a finite amount of attention to be rationed.
well EYE want us all to have long hair - those of us who desire it anyway.
so yes a good hair routine and genetics matter but there are secret potions that work. some are ridiculous but i’m not telling you to try them- i’m just letting you know they're there. and you can use them up to three times a week. just make sure you’re washing your face good after applying things to your scalp. also change your pillow cases more frequently than you would.
warning: all of these can cause a headache at first because your hair will begin growing rapidly and your head isn't used to it. diluted tea tree oil or a simple ibuprofen should take care of it. lesgetstorted
let me explain... sometimes your hair isn’t growing simply because there is an invisible layer of fungus on your scalp (no fault of your own). if that is the case, this method of “greasing” your scalp with coochie cream should work in about two weeks. can be found at any drug store.
2. minoval drops
this can be found on amazon and sometimes at your local beauty supply store (usually at the check out counter in the glass display). they’re liquidly drops that can be used as a spot treatment or you can put it all over. make sure you only put this on your scalp though!
3. surge/ hair revitalizer by netwurks
this is always sold out. i would suggest mixing the minoval drops in this. this another one where you gotta make sure it’s just on your scalp. they also have a cream that works just as good ( this is alleged as i’ve not used it for myself)
4. super grease
this is my go to. all of these can usually be found at your local beauty supply store.
here’s a video breaking down the science of the grease components.
5. virgin hair fertilizer
this can be used in the super grease but it does stand fantastic on its own. when ever i oil my scalp with this, the next day my nails are longer!
6. rice water
i do this at least twice a month. its an ancient practice of cleansing the hair. long hair is a residual result. be careful with this if your hair doesn't like a lot of protein. since i don't do it that often, i actually let it sit on my hair and scalp for a few hours with a plastic cap on. then i’m sure to follow up with a very moisture rich deep conditioner. there are many youtube tutorials on how to make rice water. it’s very simple and in the name. i would suggest adding a grapefruit peel to the jar and let it ferment with your rice so the smell won’t be as bad. also the nutrients in grapefruit peel are good for the scalp. i went through a period where i would put my rice water in a spray bottle and spray it on my scalp everyday (in between my braids). that was very effective but that’s when i was furloughed lol
7. biotin pills... but you knew that
you have to drink lots of water when taking biotin. this vitamin can build up and break you out if you don’t flush it through your system properly. what makes it worse is that you'll have pimples any and every where because the excess is just trying to escape your body by any means. so use this as your motivation to get that gallon in. the girls will say “you can get biotin in leafy greens” that’s true but the supplements have a way higher concentration and the helps with fast hair growth.
Counting all the assholes in the room, well I'm definitely not alone. 🥰
