Easy Tips to Get Long and Strong Hair!
It takes patience, effort and some deliberate changes in our haircare routine to get long and strong hair. If it seems like your hair just isn’t growing as long or as quickly as you’d like, these pro tips will guide you in the right direction.
Distribute Your Hair’s Natural Oil
Going to bed with un-brushed hair may be the thing you do when you’re tired, but giving your hair a few quick strokes can be great for its health.
Battle the Need to Go Fair-Haired
As stylish as platinum hair looks, going from a darker shade to light blonde could stand between you and your longest-possible hair. Hair cuticle damaged from bleach can cause you to have more breakage or split ends.
Get Frequent Trims
It may seem counterintuitive, but if you want long hair that’s actually healthy, you need to get regular trims. While haircuts don’t make your hair grow any faster, they help get rid of split ends that break your hair.
Eat the Right Food
Having long, strong hair doesn’t just depend on which products you put on your hair; it also depends on what you put into your body. Try increasing your protein intake with foods such as fish, beans, nuts and whole gains. If you’re not a meat-lover, maintain a diet high in protein.
Skip the Daily Shampoo
Shampooing your hair two to three times a week allows your natural oils to penetrate your hair, allowing it to hydrate and repair itself
Finish Your Shower with a Cool Rinse
A super steamy shower isn’t just bad for your skin, but it’s also rough on your hair. Turn the water hotness down when cleansing and rinse with cool water to help seal the cuticle and strengthen your hair before styling it.
Be Careful when You Brush Wet Hair
Hair is especially susceptible to breakage when it’s wet, but if you absolutely must get some knots out post-shower, makes sure to use a brush that will go easy on your strands. Start gently brushing from the ends and slowly work your way up. And don’t just brush the top layer — brush the hair beneath as well.
If you’d like to grow your hair faster, make sure you’re taking your vitamins, eating a lot of fish, or taking flaxseed or Omega 3 tablets, which are all a foundation of good hair growth.
