Hair Is Long and Thin - I Want It To Grow

Question: My hair is very thin and i have a bald spot on the right side of my hair. I want my hair to grow thick and full. It's long but thin. What can I do? please help i wear my hair in braids alot to. 

Answer: If you haven't done so, I encourage you to read the article on our site Six Tips For Black Hair Growth. Many Black women suffer from traction alopecia from wearing tight braids, extensions, hair pieces, hair rubbers, and wigs. If worn frequently, these will pull the hair out and cause the hairline to recede. Relaxers, dyes, and excessive heat also cause hair loss. You should reconsider your hair styling methods, and use methods and products that pamper and nourish your hair, instead of pull it out. Our book Twelve Steps For Growing Black Hair talks about how to take care of your hair. You may also want to visit our site at which talks about how to care for natural hair. If you have any other questions, please let me know.
