Cardi B’s hack for growing your hair

In the video, Cardi B said she begins by mashing up avocado. She then mixed in argan oil, mayonnaise, black castor oil, olive oil, eggs, honey, and a banana before putting the concoction into a blender to smooth it out.

“It’s a lot, right? It’s for me and Kulture,” she said, referencing her 1-year-old daughter.

“This treatment is really good for curl patterns,” she said in another clip while showing what Kulture’s hair looked like post-treatment. “I don’t really have a curl pattern, but my baby does.”

Showing the difference in their hair textures, Cardi B posted another video giving fans a closer look at her naturally straight hair.

“Okay, guys, so this is really how my hair is,” she said in the clip, which shows her with bone-straight, puffy hair. “My hair gets like this when you blow-dry it and then two days later it gets puffed up like this — even when you braid it. This is my hair texture. My hair is not curly … it’s just straight like this. But I still needed moisture. So it’s just a good hair mask to help your hair grow.”

She then posted a photo with the mask on her hair before rinsing it out in the shower.

The end result of Cardi B’s hair mask

After finishing her routine, Cardi B posted a picture to her Instagram showing “the end results of all that sh*t I put on my hair earlier.”

“Treat your hair ladies …and don’t let a n***a tell you shit bout wearing wigs😤It helps with hair growth ALOT!” she continued. Her hair appears soft, lustrous, and extends down her back.

“Woooooow,” said Love & Hip Hop: Miami star Bobby Lytes.

“The natural beauty that God blessed you with is always the better beauty,” added gospel singer Emmanuel Matos.
