    With African hair type as in Kinky-coily hair, It has more to do with length retention and moisturization and not necessarily growing faster. Hair vitamins help the hair grow stronger so that it is less likely to break.

    For starters, you should wear hairstyles that are low maintenance and require very little manipulation of your hair. Too much manipulation will cause breakage. Try box braids, cornrows etc and don't braid too tight.

    Your hair products should always replenish your hair moisture and ph balance levels rather than strip your hair dry. Remember to cleanse and condition your hair often.Try products from Curls, Aubrey Organics Shampoo & Conditioner for dry and brittle hair,Giovanni smooth as silk shampoo and conditioner, Jane Carter, Oyin Handmade, Mizani & Keracare (for relaxed hair).

    You can do the following for overall to improve your overall health which will reflect in the growth of your hair:

    Drink lots of water


    Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables

    Take daily vitamins and vitamins for hair and nails

    All the best.
