Hey dolls! Happy Weekend! I've been doing a ton of hair this week and I always get, "I'm trying to grow it out so only trim a little bit off." On average, hair grows about ½ inch per month. So here is a few tips to help you grow it out!
1. Wen Conditioning Cleanser
– I love this sulfate-free shampoo for several reasons, but its knack
for keeping hair’s natural oils intact helps tremendously with
2. Aveda Invati Scalp Revitalizer
– Spray it on your scalp after a shower and then massage it in. I’ve
noticed a difference in the thickness of my hair and definitely
attribute it to this—and my stylist has commented on how healthy my
scalp & follicles look! (I also alternate the invati
shampoo/conditioner in with my wen, using it 1-2 times per week).
– I use this on just the ends of my hair to keep it moisturized and prevent split ends.
4. Wide tooth comb – Keeps breakage to a minimum! Comb carefully from the ends and work your way up.
5. Hydrate – It’s no secret that drinking a healthy amount of water
every day improves your overall health, but it also aids in healthy hair
(and nail!) growth, not to mention that well-hydrated glow.
6. Exercise – Did you know that getting your blood pumping helps your
hair grow? It does, and there is no better motivation for me to go out
and bike 25 miles than the thought that I might come home with longer
7. Trim - Try and trim your hair every 12 weeks.
As hair grows, it comes in uneven due to daily habits (sleeping, for
one). A trim will get rid of the uneven growth, and get rid of
split-ends. If left alone, split ends will travel up the hair shaft and
8. Massage - Every time you shampoo, massage your scalp! It boost blood flow and
increases hair growth. You can also flip your head over for a few
minutes and try massaging it then (your scalp will get all tingly; it’s
weird!) but do not ever blow dry or brush in that position.
9. Minerals and Vitamins - B vitamins like B6 and B12.
These help skin and keratin production so your cells are nice and
strong. Next, make sure you take Biotin, which can be found in a vitamin
supplement (it’s a type of B vitamin but sometimes called Vitamin H).
Strawberries and bananas carry biotin. Zinc is another benefit for
keratin production, and can be found in wheat germ and pumpkin seeds.
Vitamin C is great too, and is easily found in broccoli and citrus type
fruit. Lastly, folate is in leafy vegetables like asparagus, as well as
honeydew melon and cantaloupe. While all these can be found in pill
form, you can intake these with food as well.
10. Styling - All girls want to use heat tools on their hair, and
that can be bad—if you don’t protect it. So make sure you use a heat
protectant when you do use hot irons or blow dryers.
