Some of us like our hair long, but sometimes it takes a few months to achieve getting that nice long hair. If you struggle with this problem and want your hair to grow a bit faster, here are some ways to help grow your hair naturally.
This may sound weird but hear me out. Trimming your hair may not make it grow faster but you will get rid of split ends, which in turn may lead to your hair losing length, shine, volume and smoothness. It’s recommended to get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks to prevent split ends.
You should avoid using heat styling tools such as hair dryers, straighteners or curling wands. If you have to use them, then do it at a lower temperature and use a heat protector to reduce frizz and damage to your hair.
A really hot shower is not only bad for your skin, it’s also bad for your scalp. After your warm shower, you should do a quick rinse with cold(er) water to help close the cuticles and strengthen your hair before you do anything to it.
Hair is more likely to break when it’s wet, but if you still want to brush it, it is recommended that you use a brush that will go easy on your hair, like for example, a wide toothed brush. Technique is also important such as starting from the ends and working your way up.
You should pay attention to your skin because what the product you’re using is doing to your hair can also affect your skin. Pay attention to how your skin feels, f.e. dry, greasy or maybe it feels soft and hydrated.
Eating the right foods can help your hair growth. Foods that are high in protein such as fish, beans, nuts and whole grains. Also foods that contain vitamin A, C and E, and minerals such as zinc and iron. And Omega 3 fatty acids. These foods can help your hair to stay healthier.
Studies have shown that silk or satin pillowcases are best, because they tend to have a softer surface which will prevent friction with your hair. That you will often have with regularly woven cotton pillowcases.
It is said that using bath towels is bad for your hair because some girls wrap the towels around their heads too tightly. The hair can get caught in between the woven fibers of the towel, which in turn could break those tiny, fragile strands around your hairline. You could opt for a t-shirt or a microfiber hair towel instead.
I hope that some of these tips to grow out your hair help you to keep your hair nice looking and healthy! Good luck!
