Many people have struggles when it comes to growing the hair in a natural way. Sometimes the hair can’t grow as fast as we would like and often we are very impatient. Therefore, read the following tips that will surely guide you in the right direction.
- Get frequent trims — yes, really.
You should regularly trim those split ends if you want to have a healthy hair. When you eliminate the breakage your hair will look fuller and healthier. A split end causes loss of volume and smoothness.
- Resist the urge to go blonde.
We all know that platinum blonde is a very popular hair trend. However, when you bleach the hair, your hair will have more breakage and split ends. The less products you use on your hair, the more it will grow.
- Distribute your hair’s natural oil.
Brushing your hair is a great way to distribute the oils from the scalp to the hair. In this way it will stay naturally moisturized and you will also increase the circulation on your scalp which will stimulate hair growth.
- Keep your scalp healthy.
Your hair will start to grow when you keep your scalp healthy. When you use healthy ingredient on the scalp, your hair will be better and stronger. You can check whether your hair is healthy by looking at one section of your hair. If the hair has the same thickness from the roots to the ends, it is healthy, but if the ends are thinner than the roots you should think again about your hair-care routine.
- Eating the right foods.
Healthy hair doesn’t only depend on topical treatments. The food you eat is also important for the hair. You should eat more proteins such as whole grains, nuts, beans, and fish. Women who don’t eat enough protein shed more hair than those who eat.
- Avoid heat styling tools.
You shouldn’t over-style your hair because you can damage the hair, cause breakage and frizz. You should always use a heat protectant and lower the temperature of the styling tools.
- Skip the daily shampoo.
When you shampoo your hair 2-3 times per week you allow the natural oils to get on the hair, which will repair and hydrate the hair. However, you shouldn’t let the hair have too much build-up because you can experience dandruff, itching, and surplus of oil.
- Add a vitamin to your A.M. routine.
If you don’t lead a healthy lifestyle, you may as well add supplements to your diet. You can take multivitamins such as vitamins B and C, and biotin, which will make your hair healthier.
- Finish your shower with a cool rinse.
Taking a shower that is too hot can be rough for the hair. When you finish your shower with a cold water you will seal the cuticles and strengthen the hair.
- Be careful when you brush wet hair.
Wet hair can be exceptionally prone to breakage and damage when it’s wet. If you really need to de-know your hair after getting out of the shower you should use a soft brush that won’t break the hair. You should brush your hair from the ends to the roots in order to detangle it without creating breakage.
- Stop doing trendy “cleanses.”
When you do a cleanse you actually deprive your body of nutrients. If the cleanse lasts for longer than one week you will surely notice that your hair is growing slower.
