How to grow thicker relaxed hair



Me 2005

I can’t believe my hair has grown this thick! I’ve always had thin hair which was capable of growing to about shoulder length but to see my hair like a wild bush amazes me!
     I’ve discovered a few things that can make hair grow thicker:

  • Not over-processing your hair when you relax it. Don’t leave the relaxer in for more than the recommended time.
  • Avoiding direct heat as much as possible. If you must, please use a heat protectant/serum!
  • Using Amla oil as a conditioner with heat.
  • Prepoo with a protein conditioner.
  • Make sure I use products containing panthenol. Panthenol is said to increase hair diameter by up to 10 percent!  Kenra moisturizing deep conditioner contains panthenol.
  • Jamaican black castor oil. This is my liquid gold for my hair! I massage Lavender Jamaican black castor oil into my scalp as a prepoo scalp oil. 

  • Trim off the dead ends regularly.

***If you want this Jamaican black castor oil, go thesizzlingmommy’s shop to find out how to place an order.

    Sorry about your hair going lighter after bonding. All my life, I did things that made me lose hair but now I'm soo careful. So Jane dear, no more bonding pls. I hope that you are able to apply all the things that I've advised. I'm sure your hair will thank you! Thanks for leaving a comment. God bless.

     I know it's a bit random, or perhaps very random, but I came across your blog as I was searching for a salon in Lagos.   I'm in desperate need of a touch up, but I can't seem to get a rec for a salon besides one that does good weave, braiding, etc.  I also need one that uses Affirm products and can do a good trim. Any thoughts?

    Hi anonymous, I'm so so sorry for the delay in responding to your omment. Where do you live in Lagos? If you live on the Island axis, there is a salon called Eden on the Lekki expressway that uses only Affirm products. Send me an email at and I'll give you some more details if you're still interested. Sorry for the delay once again and thanks for passing by!
