When it comes to growing the hair on our head quickly, some of us take all kinds of desperate measures. From hanging our heads upside down to avoiding trimming our hair altogether, we often go to some pretty weird and extreme lengths for some length. We asked Latinas on FIERCE what tricks actually work for them and the answers pretty eye-opening.
Check out the tips below!
“Jamaican Castor oil. But it really did help with my alopecia.” – corazondemelon
“Take Ashwagandha as a supplement! I started taking for anxiety but a nice side effect is more healthy hair.” –iamsunshine78
Regular trims when it’s a full moon
“Trim/cut ends during full moon, ideally at midnight (I can’t stay up that late so as close as I can get).” – daleitzy
“Jamaican castor/coconut oil when your hair is super dirty and a couple of hours before you wash it. Then argan oil after you have washed your hair and it’s still wet or damp.” –angiemhrndz
“Mayo in my deep conditioner i make my own makes my hair so soft.” –erika_kane__
“Great hair care! Good for your scalp and hair and it’s already what you do. Monat has great shampoos, conditioners, styling products that are nontoxic, cruelty free, vegan. Would love to help anyone interested with recommendations.” – claudia__moreno__
“My mamá always said that eating lots of avocados would promote hair and nail growth. Tbh I think it definitely helps!” – mandamonqiue
“A blended hair serum with Olive oil, Rosemary, Thyme, Sage, Oregano, Tea Tree Oil, Peppermint oil.” – thekittylounge
“Both my parents have thin hair my dad is bald! I have thin hair it’s in my genes. But these are the things I have tried that didn’t work cold-pressed castor oil, prenatal pills, not washing daily, biotin, collagen, mane and tail, tio nacho shampoo and I’m sure there is more. I started using Monat about 4 months ago and my hair has thickened and grown yes it’s super expensive I use the black shampoo and conditioner the mousse and hair spray and occasionally the root lifter if I want more volume!! NO I don’t sell it!! And I already have a person I buy it from!!! Again it’s hella expensive but it is working for me! Also when you first get it be patient cause I was like this stuff sucks I want my money back but the agent just keep saying give it time cause at first the shampoo didn’t even sud up now it does and if you are still using other products with them it won’t sud up as much either cause it is trying to remove the toxins from your hair!!!” – cindy_adame_cervantes
Fewer shampoo days
“Stop over-washing your hair. This quarantine has allowed the to go longer days without washing it. Now I only was my hair once a week and my hair has stopped falling in chunks and grown so much in length in a year. Ohhh I also have so much new baby hair! Waiiiit and my hair is less oily. Dry shampoo will be your new bestie.” –
Shia LeBeouf is in the new movie “The Tax Collector” and people are accusing him of brownface for this role. The actor takes on the accent for the role and got a chest tattoo to do the role authentically. For some, it is cultural appropriation and it has started a debate.
Shia LeBeouf is the man in “The Tax Collector” and people have questions.
The pulse-pounding trailer has all of the action you can handle so you can only imagine what the full movie is like. The movie is all about the tax collector having to fight to protect his family when a rival takes over his turf. LeBeouf is ready to do whatever it takes to save his family.
Some people are very upset about the role for LeBeouf.
The tattoos and the accent are too much for people. Some have argued that the role was not at all a way of cultural appropriation. Instead, LeBeouf is playing a white role that happens to have grown up in a neighborhood where he picked up the accent and a certain way of dress.
The argument is going both ways with people fighting to defend him.
While the role could be really problematic for some, others see themselves reflected in it. There are many people defending LeBeouf because they too grow up in a neighborhood and took on the culture of the neighborhood.
The director of the film, David Ayer, spoke out saying that LeBeouf is not in brownface.
“He’s a white guy playing a white guy. He’s not taking anyone’s work away,” Ayer told the LA Times to calm the critics.
