Hair growth cannot be achieved in a fortnight, but with some patience and a little effort, you can get long and healthy locks. Hair growth takes a little time, and if you are fed up from the barely increasing length of your hair, then you have come to the right place. With the help of some little tips, you can achieve the perfect hair length that you have always wanted without any harm to your strands. These ways do not require you to put any harmful chemical in your hair which can make the condition worse. So here I share with you some tips to have the best of the hair lengths.
I know combing your hair is a given, but some ladies fail to be aware of its importance. Regular brushing is a must if you want to enhance the blood supply to your scalp, thus promoting hair grown. Do not go overboard with it as overbrushing is also harmful. The brush that gives the best results is the boar-bristle brush. It will help in the even distribution of the natural oils that are already present in your scalp. Plastic and metal brushes are not recommended.
Hot oil massage
A hot oil massage is a must if you want to embrace good hair length. It will improve the blood supply to the scalp and thus stimulate the hair follicles. Give a soothing treatment to your hair once every week with warm oil that is just what your hair needs to cut down on some of its damage. After the application, flip your hair upside down and start massaging your scalp with your fingertips in a circular motion.
Castor oil is the best one to promote healthy hair growth as it is rich in Vitamin E. Mix it with equal amounts of coconut oil and almond oil and apply this mixture to your hair. You can always throw in some Vitamin E oil from the Vitamin E capsules to make this mixture better. The use of essential oils like lavender oil, rosemary oil, and jojoba oil will also work wonders for good hair growth.
If you want your hair to be healthy, lustrous and long then never forget conditioning your hair after you are done shampooing. It is a much more significant step than we give credit for. This step will help replace the lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft, while sealing the cuticle, preventing any kind of hair damage. So yes, condition your hair regularly to attain a good length and quality of hair.
Restoring hair masks
You do not have to grab an expensive mask from the store but rather try to make your hair mask yourself. A restoring hair mask is sometimes all that your hair needs as it helps in not only the faster growth of hair but also protect your hair from any split ends and other damages. So here is how to make your very own hair mask- Whisk an egg in a bowl. Add plain yoghurt or mayonnaise, one tablespoon of lemon juice, and one tablespoon of honey to it. Apply this mask to your scalp and leave it on for about twenty minutes and then rinse it with a soft shampoo. Applying this mask once every week will significantly improve the quality of your hair and of course the hair length.
After applying shampoo always wash your hair with cold water. Cold water is a great help as it smoothens the outer layer of your hair, which will inevitably prevent moisture loss and heat damage. Hot water is never recommended for washing your hair as it will weaken your hair follicles.
Once in a while go for a hair detox which means no blow drying your hair to frizziness and no application of hair products on your hair as it will lead your hair into breakage and hair damage. Use these styling products when they are really needed, and you need to attend Beyonce’s wedding *laughs* (just kidding). Do not forget to minimise the temperature of your styling tools and it would be better if you use a heat protectant. This method will most definitely enhance hair growth.
You do not have to buy every hair product that the manufacturers offer you. Choose carefully because many of these products contain harmful chemicals which can hamper hair growth. Be as far away as possible from the products that include silicones, sulphates and alcohols. Silicones will cause the absence of natural oils; sulphates will bring down the volume of your hair and alcohols will make your hair dry. Herbal hair products are the best ones for usage.
What should you eat?
Eat the foods containing a lot of proteins. Omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, C, E and biotin should be added to your diet. These are vital for hair growth. Also, along with a healthy diet you should always remember to stay hydrated.
Covering your hair with a scarf every time you are out doing stuff is a good idea if you want to steer clear of the damage that is caused by the sun and pollution. It is a kind of shield that your hair needs in today’s date. The presence of Chlorine in water is also a great cause for hair fall and hair damage.
Space out the trims
Insipte of the parlour lady always reminding you of the disasters that can be caused to your hair if you do not trim your hair every six weeks, I am assuring you that your hair cannot grow so fast if you continue with this popular claim. Your hair needs trimming according to the damage it has suffered. It is not that bad of an idea if you decide to trim your hair just twice every year.
