With the slogan – Natural Healthy Glamorous Hair – Joy has been a voice, an ambassador, a preacher and a leader in the field of Natural Hair Care. With so much lack of information and ignorance surrounding the Natural Black Woman’s hair, Joy took it upon herself to empower people with the knowledge and awareness of how to care for their natural hair as well as to create a business out of Natural Hair Care.
Realising that there were no institutions teaching natural hairstyles, Joy set up World of Braiding & Extensions – Natural Hair & Extensions Academy since 2002 and started practicing and teaching natural hair care. With favourable reviews, Joy has helped women gain employment and set up businesses in natural hair care across the world with far reaching countries as United States, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Barbados, Caribbean Countries to mention a few. Joy believes that while there exist Hairdressing Schools and Cosmetology Colleges all over the world, these colleges only teach how to alter the natural hair with chemicals, ignoring how to maintain and care for the natural hair. With this in mind therefore, Joy decided to offer understanding and care through education that can then help Black people to care for their natural hair better than altering it with chemicals.

We constantly get contacted by Black women all over the world for guide on how to grow their natural hair. These questions vary hence we have made it our business to add our focus on educating Black women in particular on hints and tips of how to care for the natural hair. We are always creating videos on our Youtube channel to help people as well so please visit youtube and search worldofbraiding channel to find out more.
Generally most people believe that the natural Black hair does not grow or when it grows; it does not grow as quickly as they would want. Generally Hair grows at an average of ½ inch per month (about 1.2cm per month). This comes to about 13cm a year. You will be able to retain length and notice growth in your hair based on how well you treat your Black hair.
Here are some basic 5 tips to help grow your natural Black hair:
1. START WITH A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE: Hair grows from inside and hair is a fiber that is part of our cells which grows from the subdivision of our cells in the hair follicles. For this reason, we need natural healthy food that the body can easily break down for digestion in order for our hair to grow. The foods we need for hair growth are fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, fish, eggs, nuts and wholemeal foods.
2. PLENTY OF WATER: Due to the unhealthy lifestyles we are forced to live with – synthetic foods, processed foods, genetically
modified foods, toxins in the air etc, the body is constantly battling with toxins which do not encourage healthy body for hair growth. To solve this problem, the body therefore needs lots of water for detoxification, lubricate food for digestion, aid digestion and reproduce the cells for hair growth. We also need lots of water to hydrate the hair so it does not become too dry.
3. NATURAL & MOISTURISING HAIR PRODUCTS: After the hair has grown out of the follicles, it needs care in order to avoid breakage. The natural Afro hair is coily and naturally dry due to lack of sebum travelling down the hair strands. Due to the coils and dryness of the Afro hair, it tangles itself and breaks easily with little manipulation. Use of wrong products such as sulphates in Shampoos, silicons in conditioners, chemical relaxers, dyes and use of heat etc cause the hair more dryness which lead to more breakage. Start using natural moisturising oils to help make the hair supple, easy to manage and grow quicker. These oils include jojoba oil, castor oil, rosemary oil, peppermint oil, shea butter, argan oil, broccoli seed oil etc. They contain active properties that help stimulate blood flow and make hair grow as well as contain moisturising properties that make the hair manageable and easy to care for.
4. MANIPULATION: When the natural hair has grown out, it requires less manipulation to avoid breakage. Handle with care as natural
hair is a very delicate fibre that breaks easily. Less manipulation means less combing, pulling, tugging, tucking, ponytails, clips, blow dryer, flat irons, tight braiding, tight weaving etc.
5. PROTECTIVE HAIRSTYLES: When the hair has grown out, you do not need to leave it hanging out all the time as it requires time and attention to care for it. You need healthy natural protective hair styles to retain your length and style. These styles include 2 strand twist, single plaits, cornrows, braids with extensions etc to help to grow and retain its length. These styles reduce manipulation. Remember not to hold the scalp too tight as it leads to hair loss and alopecia.
