They say hair is your crowning glory. So, it’s understandable that you want to make your hair thicker, longer, and healthier. Hair grows about six inches each year on average, which often feels like it’s going to take forever. But there are things you can do to stimulate growth and enhance your hair overall.
Here they are:
1. Massaging the scalp
By massaging your scalp every night, you can restore hair growth. Massaging stimulates the scalp, allowing the hair to grow to the desired thickness and length.
2. Getting frequent trims
This action may seem contradictory. But the ends of your hair are the ones with a lot of breakage and damage. Although haircuts don’t actually make your hair grow, they can get rid of the split ends. In doing so, the growth process is faster.
3. Eating healthy
Having long and robust hair does not only depend on which hair products you use, but it also depends on what you put on your body. Try eating food high in protein. In addition, eat food with vitamins A, C, E, and Omega-3 fatty acids to have longer and healthier hair.
4. Avoiding daily shampooing
When you shampoo your hair daily, the process washes out the natural oils. Try shampooing your hair two to three times a week only to allow natural oils to penetrate your hair to repair and hydrate itself.
5. Doing a castor oil treatment
Castor oil has anti-fungal, antibacterial properties that help fight scalp infections, which prevent hair growth. It’s also filled with fatty acids, vitamin E, and proteins that can penetrate your hair to give it moisture. Massage the oil onto your scalp to promote healthy hair growth.
Many factors contribute to hair growth, but focusing on your scalp care and eating healthy could do wonders for your hair. You can’t grow your hair overnight, but by making all these techniques part of your routine, you’ll get those flowing locks you desire.
