6 Hair Growth Tips, Hair growth is something that takes patience and discipline. Long hair is often seen as a crown for beauty in India. Although hair growth is a natural process, you can boost it a little bit by providing a suitable environment for it to grow. We have hand-selected 6 tips that you can easily do at home to support hair growth.
- No heat
Please avoid exposing your hair to the heat. Minimize the use of hair-dryer and do not stay too long under the sun as heat may damage your hair. Unless you are in a hurry, always let your wet hair dry out naturally. If you are in a hurry and have to use a hair-dryer, use a professional brand only and make sure to use a heat protectant. Apply SPF products make for hair next time you go enjoy the sun.
It is important to consume a balanced diet and maintain your health so that your hair could get enough nutrients to grow at its full pace. You can also take vitamin and nutrient tablets available both to consume or apply on your hair. But it is best to get it from your diet.
- Control your shampoo dose
Okay, we hear you. “Shampoo? But shampoo cleans our hair.” Yes, it does. Shampoo clears dust and other pollution products from your hair. But most of the shampoos contain sulfate in them. Sulfate in shampoo reduces the surface tension between your scalp and the shampoo. It is good to remove oil and dead skin from your hair but it has a downside too. It can also take away natural protein and oil from your hair which can result in hair damage as well as a slower growth rate. That is why you must avoid using shampoo and use hair conditioners instead.
- Cold water
Experts say that cold water can help in hair growth. Washing your hair with cold water for even a minute can protect your hair from heat and scalp damage. So next time you are in the shower, make sure to rinse in cold water.
- Essential oil
Yes, this is an obvious one but it is essential for hair growth. Some of the essential oils to promote hair growth are;
- Lavender oil
- Tea tree oil
- Rosemary oil
- Peppermint oil
This is just some of the many. You can apply these oil on your hair to make it grow faster and stronger.
This one might seem a little odd to you. But yes, you need to trim your hair for it to properly grow. Trimming removes split ends and damaged parts of your hair. So by trimming you are promoting hair growth. But trimming doesn’t mean that you have to do it too often. Experts suggest that you trim your hair every 3 months.
The bottom line is that you need to take care of your hair every day. Your hair needs more attention than you might think. So, use hair products carefully and eat healthily.
