Unprocessed, unaltered, hair that grows naturally from a person's scalp.
Usually associated with chemically-altered ethnic hair and transitioning
hair, new growth is often easily detected. It appears thicker, with greater texture--when relaxed hair begins growing out, and/or is seen as the person's natural hair color--if hair has been color-treated.
It has been over four months since I have had a relaxer and it feels like I have an inch and a half of new growth!
