Rather than the "grow long hair fast" scheme they are often touted as, extensions can often become an obstacle to growing natural hair long.
After a while, your neglected tresses can become too damaged and weak to even hold the weave up and you're left with limited styling options – outside of a hat or a wig.
The best option is to learn your natural hair – what it needs, how it responds to different methods and products.
Then you can use weaves or braids – in moderation – as a protective style, or just to give yourself a break from your daily haircare duties.
Myth: Dirty Hair Grows
Since most scalps need to be fresh and unencumbered to bring forth lustrous, healthy hair, and most hair needs regular hydration and a minimum of buildup to make it to longer lengths, it's amazing this myth ever took hold. While there is such a thing as overwashing, don't be afraid to give your hair the regular cleansing and moisture it needs to add – and keep – a few extra inches in 2014.
