  1. 1

    Drink extra water. Fluids such as water contributes to healthy hair and skin by adding moisture. Consume eight glasses of water a day to keep your scalp and locks hydrated.

  2. 2

    Eat plenty of protein. Hair is protein, and eating a protein-rich diet strengthens hair and stimulates faster growth. Prepare foods such as chicken, eggs and fish.

  3. 3

    Consider hair vitamins. Poor eating habits reduce your intake of essential vitamins. Lack of vitamins impedes hair growth. Take a daily multivitamin to supply your body with the proper nutrients.

  4. 4

    Limit shampoos. Afro hair tends to dry out fast, which may result in slow growth or breakage. Avoid daily shampoos to retain moisture. Limit hair washings to once a week.

  5. 5

    Use hair moisturisers. To restore moisture after and between shampoos, apply hair moisturiser to your scalp and hair. These products are available on the hair care aisle. Recommended products include olive oil, shea butter and tea tree oil.

  6. 6

    Apply conditioner. Hair conditioners promote a healthy hair shaft and repair damaged caused by hair colour and chemical relaxers. Use a hair conditioner such as Nioxin after each shampoo, and apply a deep conditioner once or twice a month.
