Why are people getting offended....when I see tons of black women everyday with dry hair, glue tracks, spritz up and under moisturized, I am learning how to take care of my hair and realized I never knew the proper way to take care of it.  Since I have been moisturizing daily, washing and deep conditioning weekly, and keeping the protein/to moisture in my hair balanced at the age of 30 I have hair like I never had before.  I no longer have what we call naps I now have curls and they are beautiful.  So anyone looking for info about how to grow black hair, wash your hair at least once a week, we have heard myths that dirt makes your hair grow its not true.  Your pores need to be clear.  Another thing is that if you don't do anything except this make sure you do this, DEEP CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION, ALSO MOISTURIZE DAILY.  THEN SEAL HAIR WITH A NATURAL OIL LIKE EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL.  IF YOUR HAIR IS TO LIMP FROM OVER CONDITIONING GIVE YOURSELF A PROTEIN TREATMENT, IF IT IS TO BRITTLE CONDITION WITH A MOISTURE BASED CONDITIONER......ITS A LITTLE MORE TO IT BUT THESE ARE THE BASICS......

It's not that "White people's hair" grows faster, it's just that us Blacks' hair is more prone
to dryness, therefore leading to breakage. Breakage is what causes most of us to not see any increases in length. If we can learn how to properly keep our hair
moisturized, as well as protecting our ends, our hair will grow just as long as people of other races.

I once had shoulder length hair, but after about a year of taking care of my hair,
my hair grew to the middle of my back.

I agree with both responses above. But fact of the matter is White people's hair and Black people's hair grow at the same rate. But Black people's hair brake off the same amount of hair that they have grown when not taken care of. That's all.

I'm 100% african I literaly chopped all my hair off 3 years ago because all that was dooing the damage was the perm and relaxers and all those chemicals so the past 3 years I just went natural cot a trim here and there and before I knew it my hair is now touching my back shoulder blades I don't ure anything in my hair but protien hair spray rarely use greese and use shampoo that strengthens the hair and alows circulation in the scalp. Do all this your hair will grow faster with verry verry litle breakage.

No Caucasian hair does not grow longer and faster than African Americans hair. All hair types grows 6 inches every year, I mean All. Reason African Americans hair doesn't grow if because we perm it, use heat too much or we don't take care of it.

Actually, it doesn't. White people have straighter hair and it looks longer. Blacks hair is curlier but if you pull on it and straighten it out they're the same. Also afro hair is a bit drier than white hair therefore it breaks more. But if it's conditioned right it should grow just fine.

I condition my afro with a natural shampoo it grows just fine. My answer is our hair is puffy and puffy hair grows curly and outward. But all culture hair grows regard less know matter white or black. We africans put all types of toxic grease in our heads to fit in with whites or spanish so there for we cause our hair to grow slow over evolution but if you display your natural hair no added harmful toxis our hair should grow fast.''

I am a black women, and I used to flat iron/relax/perm my hair all of the time to get the naturally curly/kinky texture to look straight. As a result, my hair broke off and it looked like my hair hadn't grown for over three years! I decided cut off the ends and to grow my hair out naturally, using moisturizing products, and now I can see my naturally curly hair growing each month. I think that if black women stop over-processing our hair and just learn to love our curls/afros/pouffes, etc we wouldn't have any problems with breakage :). Afros are gorgeous!

Black peoples hair can grow just as fast the reason why people now can't grow there hair is because they put to much perms and other harmful chemicals in there hair.,eat a lot of junk your hair wont be as strong and can break another thing black hair when dirty can make up as a conditioner it keeps the hair moist not that you should get your hair dirty but back in slavery we didnt have our natrul oils like shea butter chocoa and others  try useing mango and lime hair treatment for your type of hair .also white peoples hair doesnt even condition it self if not treated when dirty like black peoples oh and watch good hair to find out more of wats in your so call relaxserz

Straight hair seems to grow faster than hair that's wavy, curly or kinky, in that order.

"Relaxed" hair stretches out further than it appears when in springy form.

I believe the difference is primarily an illusion.

No! Definitively not it's just straight! The fingernails are hair too, and they grow the same!
Some people  it grows faster than others, but it has nothing to do with race!

In general, black hair breaks easier, and tends to fall out very easily
when dry or brittle, whereas (in general) white hair tends to be more
durable and thus retains its length.

Each person's hair grows as different rates, though, and if you take the
absolute best care of your hair then it will at least grow at average
speed. I am black and my natural hair grows quickly. Oftentimes you
can't tell, though, because curly hair shribbles up and thus doesn't
show its full length.

well the length of hair depends upon the genetic coding which is inherited from our parents and which determines the length of our hair. So it is not based on the Black or White people it all depends upon the genes.

"White People Hair" does not "grow faster" than Black folks' hair. The texture of hair has as much to do with growth as "genes".

The much-maligned hair type known as "nappy" (not my choice of word, but the one that's most recognizable to most folks).......i.e., 100% kinky type hair, in it's UNPROCESSED state, is the most fragile of ALL the hair types. A good example would be Whoopi Goldberg's hair texture. Most people do not know this.

^^^continued--poor relaxing/weave techniques, poor care, and general miseducation and pressure to be bone-straight are the main reasons that Black hair doesn't grow. Ever seen Black men/women with dreadlocks down to their waist or below? Prime example of how much and how fast "Black" hair can grow with proper care and minimal manipulation. Most people assume Black hair is the "strongest" hair type b/c of its coarseness/wiry texture, when nothing could be farther from the truth.

It Doesn't grow that much faster. But black people have drier hair so it breaks off at the same rate it grows. Also Black people DO take care of their hair, probably more than white people, It's just harder to take care of your hair when you are black. This is because the hair is so dry and thick and curly.

Yes, because the follicles in caucasian hair hold natural oils and minerals in them to stimulate hair growth, which african hair lacks. That's why african hair grows slower than caucasians.

I know from observation and personal experience, that after most African American woman's hair does not grow down their backs. Do you agree to that? And if it does, it takes years to grow that length.

So what does Logic 101 say to that?

Because they can manage there hair better, and because they don't have dry hair. And maybe if we as black people could deal with our hair better and not complain about it, then it would possibly grow, stop complaining, everyone is diffrent jusy have pacience.

White People's hair grows at approximately 396 micrometers per day while Black People's grows approximately 256 micrometers per day,I think thats why Black People's hair looks the same length even after a full year of trying to grow it out.
