The Key to Achieving Long, Healthy Hair

For many women, their desire is to have to have either longer or stronger hair, or maybe even both.  However, there are so many factors that play into how fast our hair actually grows.

With these tips we have, that dream can turn into reality faster than you think. Feed your hair with the good stuff and say hello to longer, beautiful hair.

  1. Stay Healthy

The only way you can make your hair grow faster (or thicker) is to make sure you’re eating well, staying hydrated, and getting enough circulation. When we’re not healthy, our hair, skin, and nails tend to show it first.

  1. Wash less

Shampooing daily brings more harm to your hair than good.  When you wash your hair every day, you hinder your hair from getting all the nutrients and natural oils it needs to be healthy. This can lead to breakage, brittle strands, very little shine, and overall, it will dry out your scalp.

  1. Apply an oil rinse

Coconut, olive, and avocado oils are all excellent natural hair treatments and have been proven to improve hair growth immensely. Because these oils are good at penetrating the hair shaft, they  will also make your hair naturally shiny and frizz free. Shampoo hair as usual and then work in oil from ends to roots. Rinse and condition as usual. Your hair will feel moisturized afterward, but not greasy.

  1. Protect your hair

Stop “blow frying” your hair. Use cooler settings on your tools, or better yet, give them up completely. Learn how to work with your hair, not against it. Learn how to style it.

Leave the harsh chemicals behind. Your hair has a better chance at looking thick, healthy, and shiny if you completely forgo the chemicals.

       7. Trimming

Stay on top of your trims! Trimming your hair doesn’t actually make your hair grow faster, however it can help you preserve the length you have.  Split ends are exactly what it sounds like– where your hair follicle begins to spilt from the bottom of the shaft and weakens the entire follicle.  As a result you will experience less breakage overall and fewer “flyaways.”  It will also improve the overall look of your style and give more body and bounce to your hair when curled.

Here’s a video to explain split ends:
