Each one of us wishes to have long, shiny thick hair but with the growing pollution and the amount of chemicals that we subject our hair to, we keep loosing large amount of hair. Realistically, there is no one magical way to make your hair super long, super fast unless you count on hair extension . So instead of simply lusting over other people's hair , try these tips to help your hair grow faster.
#1 Dry Scalp Massage
Give yourself scalp massages at home. Massaging your head can help stimulate the blood flow to your scalp, which helps nutrients get to your hair follicles more quickly. Better yet, make your sister give you a scalp massage.
#2 Wet Hair Massage
While washing your hair, massage the scalp with your fingertips, starting at the back of the neck and moving around the hairline. A perfect excuse to stay in the shower longer, no?
#3 Cold Water Rinse
Before you step out of the shower, douse your mane in cold water for a few seconds. This will help seal your hair cuticles, and prevent moisture loss and heat damage. Alternatively, avoid using scalding hot water when washing you hair, as it can weaken your strands.
#4 Never Forget To Condition
Shampoo takes all of the dirt and grime out of your hair and scalp, while conditioner replenishes nutrients that you hair needs to be healthy and shiny. If you really need to skip a step, ditch the shampoo every once in a while but don't ever forget to condition your hair.
#5 Trim Those Locks
We understand you want to grow your hair and are trying to avoid chopping off any length. However, healthy hair grows faster and split ends can work their way up the strands, thereby damaging hair . Better to chop of damaged hair than look frail and limp looking hair.
#6 Take Vitamins
Taking an over-the-counter vitamin every day that contains antioxidant blends and vitamin B derivatives to help increase hair strength. Supplements like biotin, found at basically any local pharmacy, encourage healthy hair and nail growth.
#7 Lay off the Heat Tools
This ones a no brainer! Deep down, you know that the burnt hair smell your straightener creates can't be a great sign for what it's actually doing to you tresses. The more you use your dryer, curling iron, and flat iron less the more you damage your hair. Restrict their use to one a week.
