For some women, enviably long hair just happens, others have to work a little harder adjusting our day to day routines to achieve long locks. It may seem impossible and incredibly hard to grow your hair, but there are a few extremely simple ways to encourage hair growth that you can incorporate into your routines.
Get Frequent Trims
I know what you’re thinking- this one seems counterproductive. But, to achieve long hair that is healthy trims are a necessity. Trims get rid of split ends that break your hair. A split end that breaks can lead to your hair losing length, so eliminating the breakage gives the appearance that your hair is growing faster.
Distribute Your Hair’s Natural Oils
After a long day, all we want to do is crawl into bed and go to sleep, but before doing this brushing your hair can be great for your hair’s health. A few brushes starting from the scalp distributes the scalps oils evenly onto your hair so it stays naturally moisturized.
Finish Your Shower With A Cool Rinse
A super hot shower can be rough on your hair follicles. You should turn the temperature down when cleansing, as well as rinse with cool water, to help seal the cuticle and strengthen your hair before styling it.
Sleep On A Silk Pillowcase
You can get better hair in your sleep. Silk is much easier on your hair and helps avoid tangle and breakage. The less breakage you experience, the longer your hair will be.
Pay Attention To Your Skin
It is very easy to see shiny hair and assume a product is working for your hair. You should take a closer look because what the formula is doing to your skin it will generally do to your hair. Pay attention to if the product makes your skin feel heavy and greasy or soft and hydrated.
These are just a few ways to encourage hair growth. There are so many other ways out there as well, it is all about finding something that works for you and your hair.
