Yes, You Can Make Your Hair Grow Faster!
Our hair is the fastest growing tissue in your body. Read on for expert tips on how to promote growth and healthy, long hair.
1. Detox Your Scalp:
When you frequently cleanse and treat your scalp with healthy ingredients, you will produce healthy, beautiful, shiny, strong hair. Be sure to use a mild, sulfate-free hair wash that won’t strip hair of its natural oils.
2. Energize Your Roots
Stimulate hair growth by massaging the scalp. When your scalp is being massaged, the increased blood flow oxygenates the area, which in turn stimulates follicles to increase hair growth and speed. Scalp massages can be even more beneficial by adding essential oils to help moisturize the scalp and nourish hair.
3. Minimize Tangling:
Be gentle to your hair. Rough handling will cause hair stress and damage. For longer hair, it is wise to keep it up at night in a bun when you sleep. It’ll prevent unnecessary tangles and tugging in the morning. And if you do get snarls, be sure to divide your hair into sections and use a seamless, wide-toothed comb that won’t snag on your hair or pull out your strands. Work you way up from the bottom and apply a little leave-in conditioner to ease the process. This step is especially important when your hair is wet and it’s at its most fragile state.
4. Stop Abusing Heat
: We love how flat ironing makes our hair lie straight and feel silky smooth, but frequent heat styling breaks down your hair’s protein bonds causing irreparable damage. Blowdrying can also cause stress. Be careful not to over-dry your hair and always use a nozzle. Remember to keep the nozzle moving, moving, moving. If you leave it in one spot for too long, the heat can easily cause harm. So, turn down the heat and use a heat protectant before any heat styling to minimize damage.
5. Add Protein:
Poor diet can lead to iron deficiency, which in turn can cause hair loss and breakage. Proteins are the building blocks of hair, so it always helps to have a balanced diet and eat protein-rich foods, such as organic chicken, beef and eggs or plant-based legumes, nuts, seeds and hemp daily. Avocados and even oysters are also rich in proteins and nutrients, which promote hair growth.
