So you’re probably asking yourself “what should I do” to get that long natural hair without straightening the life out of it. The response is “It takes TIME.” However in the meantime there are some other steps you can take to make your kinky natural hair get to the length you being dying for.
Create a regimen that works for you. It’s easy to hop on Youtube and get sucked in by the first routine you see to get long natural hair, but if you’re doing things that don’t work for you, you won’t see the results that you want.

You can tweak this based on your hair type and preferences as long as you find something that works for you.
Eat a balanced diet. So many people think that growing long natural hair is only about products and techniques but if you’re not nurturing your insides, you won’t see the results that you want. Load up on leafy greens and vegetables and take your daily multivitamin too!
Protective style often. You want to know the best kept secret to getting long natural hair? It’s leaving it alone! If you want your hair to grow you should be giving your hair plenty of breaks by protective styling. There are so many options like weaves, twists, or crochet braids so can switch them up as often as you like.
