How can African-American girls grow longer and healthy hair?

My hair is semi-decent but only just comes to my neck. It is SO uneven all over. I haven't gone natural(because I haven't had the Big Chop) but haven't had a relaxer in 2.5 years so my hair crazy thick. My straightener doesn't even do the job anymore. I just get braids so I don't have to deal w/ my hair. What products should I use or not use? Deep-conditioning twice a week? Trimming? It gets dry and brittle when I blow dry and I get split-ends. I'm so lost. Please help!

Keep getting trims so it can grow out and the new healthy hair can replace the old damaged hair. You don't need a huge chop all at once, you can do it over time so your hair can stay long. Use avocado, banana, eggs or honey with olive oil at least once a week as a hair mask. Change over to sulfate free shampoos and... More
