How to Naturally Grow Your Hair
Waiting for your hair to grow is like waiting for the water to boil… it’s an excruciatingly long process. If you are trying to grow out your hair and you feel like your hair is in a growth slump, don’t worry because we have the answers to your problems. Supplements, droplets, and specific creams can help speed up the hair growth process, but it is also possible to naturally grow your hair without them.
Before we spill all our secrets, its important to note that everybody’s hair is different and works differently. Someone’s rapid hair growth routine might not work for you due to your genetics. So keep in mind that just because you are staying on top of your hair growth maintenance, doesn’t mean the length is going to transpire. You also want to keep in mind that having previous hair damage will affect future hair growth. This means that if your hair follicles are damaged from years of chemical treatments, the most you are going to be able to do is revive it back to life. The bottom line is – be patient with your locks and it will pay off. Now here are five things you can do to naturally grow out your hair.
Trim Your Ends
There is a lot of question around if getting your hair cut actually helps it grow. And the answer is YES!! Healthy hair grows from root to tip. Trimming your split and damaged ends will promote growth and keep your hair healthy.
You should NEVER skip conditioner. And, if your hair allows it, try skipping the shampoo! The key to growing your locks is moisture. You want to avoid drying out your hair at all costs. Hydrate your hair with conditioner, rinse it out in cool water, and then use your favorite sealant of oils and/or creams.
Sometimes, you just have to let it go and let it grow! Low manipulation hairstyles are a great way to keep heat off your hair and allow it to nourish and grow. This is also important for those ladies with coarse, thick, and coiled hair textures, which are prone to dryness. Protective hairstyles help maintain moisture and protect your hair from pollution and damage. Long-term protective styles include braids, twists, and weaves.
You can stimulate hair growth by massaging your scalp with a diluted mixture of peppermint oil. Due to the high potency of peppermint oil, it is recommended to dilute it with either water or oil. Peppermint oil stimulates blood circulation and increases oxygen supply, thereby allowing your roots to blossom and grow. When you mix it with a hair thickener like castor oil, the benefits can be endless!
What You Put in Your Body Matters
Stronger hair comes from within. What you put in your body matters! Eating foods such as nuts, oats and brown rice gives you biotin, and leafy greens and berries provide you with iron. Upping your intake of water also can help with hair growth and getting the proper amount of sleep also plays an important role in growing out your hair.
