Happy and Nappy

So I have had natural hair for... over a decade now. My main goal is to grow my hair back to as long ( or longer) than it was when I was little. I have been somewhat conflicted in where and what to research because I know that there are indeed major differences between the makeup of "ethnic" versus "non-ethnic" hair and haircare. So I've been trying to find sites that have info on natural growth and maintenance regimens that would be effective for me as a sistah gurl. I cant wait to venture on the journey to regrow my hair and start maintaining it to its fullest potential. Tonight I am going to comb it out, wash it, blow it dry and trim it and start from there. Everlasting light, health and nappturality here I come!!!
Here are some of the things I have learned and aim to incorporate thus far
1. Rosemary:is used to combat the fall of hair, stimulate the growth of new locks, strengthen hair roots, support hair follicles, eliminate dandruff, and clean the scalp and hair of impurities.

2. Horsetail: Horsetail has been used for centuries as a hair growth herb. It stimulates blood vessels in the scalp. Horsetail contains a high amount of silica which is essential for healthy hair.
3. Coconut Oil/Avacado Oil/Jojoba Oil: Excellent for moisturizing the hair without clogging the follicles
4. WATER!!!!
5. Inversion machine???: So my mom bought this new inversion machine and she was saying that it can also be used to promote hair growth seeing that all of the blood in your body will be rushing in the opposite direction and stimulating ones hair folicles.... so hang upside down guys!!!
