that can help you. For any length it should be shiny, bouncy and healthy. You may have to try some different and unconventional methods when trying to grow your hair and keep it healthy in the process.
Secret #1 - Vitamins are a MUST!
Hair specialists love to remind us that it is impossible to alter the rate at which your hair grows. Average hair growth is ½” per month. I am able to speed up my normal growth rate to ¾” each month just by taking supplements for my hair.
All hair vitamins and supplements are not created equal. A multivitamin is the foundational supplement you should always use. This is first and foremost anything else is a bonus.
Hair especially likes B complex, biotin, folic acid, pantothenic acid, iron, zinc, flax seed oil, black currant seed oil, kelp and silica. An amino acid complex can also be used for additional measure.
Your hair is a result of good nutrition for your body. So keep your body healthy and your hair will follow.
Secret #2 - Massage Your Scalp
You want your hair stronger and thicker massage your scalp at least 5 minutes each day. You can choose to do it dry, or use an oil or scalp treatment to assist you. A great time to do it is when you are shampooing.
The scalp’s blood supply is activiated when you massage it. The blood brings nutrients to the follicles and that helps the follicles do their work. As an added benefit, scalp massage is a great stress reducer. Keep your stress levels low and you wiull have more beautiful hair. So you can even get an all-over body massage and that can even help your hair!
Never use your nails only use the pads of your finger tips. Spread your fingers apart and place them firmly on your head. Start at the base of your neck and work your way up to your front hairline. Move in little circles. You may feel tingly; that’s your improved circulation.
Secret #3 - Wear Your Hair on Top of your head (wear it up)
A lot of people don’t get this one. “What’s the point of having long hair if I have to wear it up all the time?” The point is to have more beautiful, healthy, long hair. Environmental damage happens each time your hair is worn down. The air will dry your hair out. Tangles are caused by the wind and then you have to detangle it - which causes more damage. And finally when your hair rubs up against your clothes it dries it out even more.
Try wearing your hair up at least 50% of the time. By the end of one month, you will notice much less breakage, and less dryness.
Secret #4 - Be Sure to get Regular Trims
“When I’m trying to grow out my hair, why would I get it cut or trimmed?” This is the wrong way of thinking. The last 2 inches of a persons hair can look raggedy and thin and you may not know why. Get a good trim. The ends will be soft, smooth, buttery and thick. Discipline yourself to get small trims every few weeks or when your ends are looking rough and dry.
Your ends are the oldest, driest and most damaged part of your hair. No matter how gentle you are to your hair, the ends split and move farther up the hair shaft. Split ends cause tangles, which leads to breakage and snapping.
Getting trims will also keep the shape of your hair. Since hair grows unevenly, after a couple of months your style can go from chic to shaggy very quickly.
Secret #5 - There are Tricks that will work for You
Here are some great tips that you don’t see too often. Pick one or two, try them for 2 weeks to a month. Then decide if this is the answer to your most gorgeous hair.
* Sleep on a satin pillowcase to prevent damage from tossing and turning.
* If your hair is damaged, use a protein treatment once a week.
* Switch to a boar bristle brush.
* Switch from plastic combs to wooden or cellulose acetate. Plastic combs have molded seams on them that damage your hair cuticle.
* Use distilled water as your final rinse. Tap water leaves mineral deposits on hair that can dull it and damage it.
* If your hair is very dry, don’t shampoo every day.
* If you have fine, thin hair, stay away from volumizing and thickening shampoos. They dry out your hair.
* Stay away from hair accessories with metal in them.
