Having a good hair is beautiful, but what is more beautiful is having long hair. It saves time and money and it is also classy as it can be styled anyhow you want it, some people are lucky enough to be born naturally with long hair while others are not.
However, here are some tips to growing or maintaining long hair.
1. LIVE A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Our hair is affected by how healthy we live our lives. Yes, what you eat, drink and how you treat your body has an effect on your hair. You need to eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables, drink enough water and exercise regularly . Since your hair grows directly from your body, when you treat your body well, your hair benefit from that too.
2. BRUSH YOUR HAIR GENTLY
Brushing the hair can be stressful and extremely painful at times, but have you tried brushing gently and with the right brush?
Use the right comb or brush. Brush your hair from the tips and move upward to de-tangle your hair. Work out tangles slowly and never tear or pull at your hair when brushing(besides it can cause pain and breakage), apply hair cream or oil(whatever product you use) to help soften the texture.
3. GET REGULAR TRIMS
This sounds weird but if you want your hair to grow longer, you might want to get trims, it helps get rid of dry and damaged split ends which can work their way up the shaft of your hair, causing even more damage. Trimming your hair is just cutting ¼ to ½ inch of hair and nothing more. If your stylist insists on cutting off inches of hair every time you go in for a visit, your hair won’t get longer, so either find a professional who understands exactly how much hair you need removed or learn to trim your hair yourself to enable you get that bad hair off and get rocking with your good hair.
4. MASSAGE YOUR SCALP DAILY
Getting massages are so relaxing and body soothing, same thing applicable to your hair, it is simple just use the tips of your fingers and massage gently round your scalp . This increases blood flow in the scalp, making the hair follicles to grow faster.
5. USE THE RIGHT HAIR PRODUCTS
Long hair starts with good hair care, and good hair care starts with using the right hair products. It’s important to use products that increase the strength of your hair rather than causing damage. In case you don’t know the right products to use, you can seek the advice of your stylist, you can also decide to go for pure natural and organic products or refined ones(depending on your choice)
Finally, growing your hair can take some time and strength but it is a gradual process, taking the right steps can help encourage healthy and faster growth just give your hair a little time and sit back and enjoy your long hair.
