As the video progresses, it shows the woman at the hair salon getting her first twist. A month later, she checked for hair growth and was unsatisfied with the result. She then went for the second twist, but on the third twist, she was glad that her hair was "getting somewhere”.

As time went by, @_mich.xlle started feeling comfortable with her hair and began to try on new styles, such as Bantu knots, braiding her hair so she could get curls, and even dyeing her hair because she was tired of being blonde. She switched to maroon, and she loved it.

At the end of the video, she said she was happy with her decision.

How to grow your natural hair with tips from an expert

Speaking with Briefly News, qualified artistic and creative hairstylist Lazaros Sumbane recommended some chemicals that work well for African or Afro hair, like calcium, lithium, and sodium hydroxide.

"Since they are not all the same, it is typical for one customer to use them all. I suggest using them all for the hair's benefit because they balance the pH of the hair, prevent discolouration, and more," he shared.

The hairstylist offered tips on using natural products like avocado, coconut oil, Aloe Vera, and black castor oil to help your hair grow.

"Sofnfree and Design Essential I am using their products for natural hair, and they are good."
