Making your hair grow faster can be quite a complicated process. But following these tips will help you achieve just that.
And what more you can keep your hair healthy as well. Read on to find out what these tips are.
1. Healthy lifestyle
What you drink, eat and how you treat your body has a great effect on your hair. Eating vegetables, fruits, drinking water and exercising regularly is essential for the body’s overall health.
Since hair grows directly from your body, treating your body well will greatly benefit your skin, hair and nails. Individuals who suffer from vitamin deficiencies and unhealthy diet can suffer from brittle and dry hair.
2. Exfoliate scalp
Exfoliating your scalp can help a lot to aid in promoting hair growth. You can use a detoxifying shampoo at least once a week to remove product build-up, thoroughly cleanse hair and remove excess sebum from follicles.
3. Avoid clogging your follicles
Give your hair a rest from overloading the root area with hair styling products such as dry shampoo and other volumizing powders. Oils, dirt and product build-up can clog your follicles which can hinder hair growth.
4. Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp can greatly help to stimulate blood circulation, therefore supporting tiny blood vessels that feed the hair follicles.
Try doing a rhythmic tapping technique and gentle pulling of the hair (pull gentle so you feel the tension not pain) are two massages you can try. Stress relief can help your hair grow too.
5. Get regular trims
Regularly trimming helps get rid of damaged, dry and split ends which can find its way up the shaft of your hair causing even more damage. Trimming is removing 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 inch of hair.
6. Wear gentle hairstyles
Choose hair styles that keep your hair’s fragile nature in mind. Tight elastics, too-tight ponytails and braids worn repetitively will eventually lead to breakage. Avoid hair styles that are too painful and choose your hairstyle accordingly.
7. Do less and go natural
Excessive styling, washing and chemical colouring can cause damage and breakage to your hair. Daily shampooing can compromise your scalp’s natural oils that helps in stimulating growth. Excessive hairstyling, brushing and chemical processing can leave your hair dry and brittle, so do less of these and go natural instead.
