Whether you are thinking of growing your hair longer or you are simply trying to grow out that horrible colour from last season, these tips are sure to get you longer, healthier hair in no time. Well, you wont literally have your hair perfect by tomorrow but they will in fact assist your hair with great rewards as the end result. If you haven’t already tried a few of these I highly suggest you do and make sure to have a little patience – remember it’s hat season so covering up with a cute baseball cap or bandanna in the meantime won’t look foolish either.
Wash With Warm, Rinse With Cold
Apparently rinsing your hair with cold water will seal the hair follicles, and make for a shinier appearance to your luscious locks. Doing this will also force your hair to attempt growth. It will work twice as hard to push its way through the scalp and therefore make hair grow faster – worth a try right?
100 Strokes (or More)
Brushing your hair is not an old wives tale, the reason women of the past were said to brush their hair 100x up to 3 times day was because it stimulated hair growth. The same holds true today, the more you brush the more stimulation to the scalp, making hair grow. No wonder women always had long hair – perhaps it was because no one cut it either. Whichever way you look at it, brushing your hair a little longer can’t hurt can it?
Opt For Silk
While a cotton pillowcase seems practical and common, experts say that it will dry out your hair leaving it brittle, full of split ends and in turn prevent it from staying healthy – key ingredient to growth. If you can, opt for a silk pillowcase to sleep on. Silk will have your skin feeling hydrated and your hair soft and smooth – perhaps even cut down on the trims too as a result.
Skip Out On The Shampoo
Try to rotate your shampoo routine. You don’t have to shampoo your hair every time you wash it. Shampoo will dry out your hair follicles and make it hard for new healthy hair to grow. Instead condition away! Make that scalp a happy one – your hair will thank you for it.
