So what are the things you need to do to ensure that you grow long
Wash your hair at least once a week. The reason why this is very important is that in order to maintain a healthy scalp, your scalp must be clean. Its that simple. This is especially true if you do a lot of working out. Washing regularly gets rid of the dirt and salty sweat that accumulates in the scalp.

Detangle your hair in the shower. This is important for people with tighter curls. Many people who have tight curl growth pattern can find it very difficult to comb hair when dry and aggressive combing or brushing can result in unwanted damage. Use a shower comb from your local store that can cost less than $1 and after conditioning comb your hair detangle it. Detangle your curls by combing at the bottom of your hair and combing up closer to your scalp.
Deep condition your hair at least once a month. This is again important to prepare the hair for any hair strengtheners and gives hair extra care that is not always given to it during a regular wash.
Keep your hair moisturized – This is particularly important for people of Afro Caribbean origin as their hair does not benefit from the natural oils in the same way that is seen by Caucasians. The growth pattern of Afro Caribbean people’s hair restricts the essential oils from reaching the ends of the hair strands so applying extra moisturizers helps.
This is also good for people with dry hair. Even being out in the sun and wind damages your hair so it is important to moisturize not only to get rid of the dryness in the hair but also prevent split ends from forming at the ends of hair.
