 I am a 22 year old college student about to graduate and I have serious hair issues. As we know, most college students don't have a lot of cash and school is the main priority. Anyway, I've been natural for 6 years and get this, my hair has not grown to where I would want it to be. I have 4c hair on the crown and front part of my hair and more of a 4b/4a texture in the back. 

Here's a back story to how my hair used to be before I was a natural. My mom mostly did my hair up until I was in middle school. I think I was about 11/12 when my mom gave me a terrible relaxer and she thought that putting a cap on my head while the relaxer was on it was going to make it better... I was a kid so obviously I didn't know better and when it was rinsed out, my edges were basically singed off and I have no idea if this incident has affect how my hair is and my scalp. Luckily, I didn't lose any other hair than that. I don't have edges such as baby hair anymore, but some hair did grow back in that area. Now, fast forward to now.

Now, my hair is less than shoulder length still after these 6 years. I don't manipulate much and I've worn my hair in mostly braids throughout high school and college. Every time I would wash, condition, co-wash, or even deep condition and letting it air dry with oils on my hair and scalp to prevent it from flaking, it still get very dry and flaky every time. Today, I tried to braid my hair in box braids and I have failed again to do so since it looked terrible to me and it's been about 6 months since I've done box braids since I haven't had much time to do it. For the past 6 months, I would wear it in a puff or spend 2-3 hours twisting it then taking it down a couple of days later b/c it would look like crap (all over the place though I tie my hair down every night). I have also been on birth control pills for 6 years as well, but I've mostly heard that it can promote hair growth.. but idk. It's just really frustrating and idk what to do with my hair anymore. Any suggestions? Thanks.

A way that might help grow out your hair is to use the inversion method. The inversion method is somewhat just bowing down your head and letting your blood circulate to your head so your hair can grow. I usually do this for about four minutes.after you do this sometimes you might feel a little dizzy but for me it goes away quickly and I have grown some more to my hair from this.an oil that I've been using in my hair is coconut oil and I find it very moisturizing. I hope this helps.😃😃

I can't really see a dermatologist since I can't afford it at the moment. I just spent $1550 on a used car and another $1350 for school so I am basically broke right now. When I have the money and the time, I can see a dermatologist.

If you have the time, like aharri23 said, try the max hydration method. This is your only problem. You hair is not hydrated therefore it breaks and you cannot retain length. You need to go on YouTube and look into products for moisturizing natural hair. Shea Butter, Coconut and castor oil are some I like to use. You also need to be heavy handed with products in the beginning because your hair is so thirsty. Treat your strands as if each were its own individual body. What you put on it directly affects the outcome and vice versa.
