Here are some effective ways to kick follicles into high gear and get longer hair fast.
Hair growth starts with diet
“A healthy diet and vitamins are key to growing stronger, longer hair,” Foods such as salmon are loaded with omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids as well as antioxidants which can reduce hair loss and increase hair density. Another plant based protein option is beans which provide other hair-healthy nutrients like iron, biotin, and folate.
Strengthen Your Scalp
It’s no secret that strong hair equals strong scalp. According to a recent study, daily scalp massages are proven to increase hair thickness. We suggest spending five minutes a day massaging your scalp
Postpone your trim with products
It’s a myth that you have to cut your hair every six to eight weeks. If you are using a great shampoo and conditioner, doing treatment masks regularly like Ouai Treatment Masque and Olaplex, and using non-damaging tools like GHD, you can go up to six months without a trim.
Sleep on silk
Sleeping on a smooth surface reduces nighttime friction, which means less breakage (and bed head) in the morning.
Follow the rule of one
Never blow-dry AND heat style on the same day, In an ideal world, air-dried hair would be the best hairstyle, but thats not most people’s reality. To avoid damage and dryness, do one or the other, and on off days don’t go over dirty hair with heat again. Bottom line: Excess heat hinders hair growth.
Give your hair a rest
Depending on your hair type, the more you wash and style will take a toll on your hair, so it should be done to a minimum, but that doesn’t mean abstinence is the only answer. If you are washing with great products, using heat protectants and non-damaging tools then you can wash your hair twice a week.
