How To Grow Out Your Nape Hair



Some of these tips are no-brainers and techniques that we already 
practice. So, I think it’s probably best to pick and choose the techniques that are likely to work for you and modify as needed:

 Don’t over-manipulate the hair at the nape with brushing and/or combing.

 Be very gentle when detangling the nape area (finger detangling is recommended).

 Wear styles that prevent your nape hair from rubbing your clothing as excessive friction can cause damage and breakage.

Avoid placing a lot of tension on the nape hair with overly tight weaves, braids, bun and ponytail styles.

Protect the nape at night with a silk/satin scarf and/or bonnet ensuring that this area is fully covered.

 A satin pillowcase adds yet another level of protection in the event that your headgear is prone to “slippage” like mine.

If you use commercial permanent colors, apply dyes to the nape last so that it is processed for less time or don’t treat this area at all.

 If/when you use heat, reduce the temperature and ensure the hair is adequately treated with a heat protector. 
Moisturize and seal this hair more if hair it is prone to dryness. This applies to using additional conditioner through the wash session (regular conditioner, deep conditioner) and moisture during styling (leave-in, styler, sealing).

 Massage the scalp to promote circulation and growth. (I use an essential oil mix that has been proven to stimulate growth. 

Braid the nape hair into a horizontal cornrow and thread the length through the cornrow to protect it.

  1. I'm sending this link to my cousin. She's been losing hair at her nape for a while and it will not grow back. Perhaps these steps will help out a little.

  6. I remember my stylist once told me never to use a hair brush aggressively around the nape 'cause it will break the hair. Love your tips girl. Worth noting.

  15. Styling is the main issue. Too tight ponytails or buns, not allowing our hair to breath with braids and extensions, fungus caused by not washing the hair often enough. Lot of causes. Great post, beautiful!
