Yes, you can grow your hair longer and faster with these 10 important steps!
STEP 1: STOP THE STRESS. SLOWS DOWN HAIR GROWTH
Remember, hair grows on an average of 1/4 of an inch to 1/2 an inch every month. This is considered to be normal. So first step is to cool down and stop stressing about it. Stress causes all sorts of negativity and somehow your scalp knows it too. Yep, a mind of its own.
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE YOUR SCALP TO SPEED UP HAIR GROWTH
It is so important to moisturize your scalp to maximize your hair growth. It is sooooooo important to use a conditioner, hair pack, or treatment conditioner. I can not stress this enough. Conditioning your scalp helps restore moisture to your roots and helps to minimize dandruff and oil that builds up. Consequently, this slows down hair growth and hair loss will increase. Definitely not what we are going for. So please moisturize your scalp and hair growth will naturally speed up.
STEP 3: DRINK GREEN TEA & GINSENG TEA/SUPPLEMENTS
Green tea is a form of anti-oxidant and speeds up circulation in your body. Good circulation is vital for hair growth and aids in minimizing hair loss. Drink one cup of green tea everyday to clear your body of bad toxins. It is extremely healthy and good for you, so no loss there! Ginseng plays an important role in maintaining good blood circulation in your body and brain. We want good circulation so our hair will grow faster. Good circulation equals longer and healthier hair!
STEP 4: USE A SCALP ESSENCE FOR NUTRIENTS TO KEEP YOUR HAIR GROWING
Often people do not like taking supplements or drinking tea. Go get yourself some scalp essence (water-based only) of nutrients and herbal extracts. This will help your scalp and roots absorb some nutrients that you cannot take daily. I say water-based because oil will clog up your pores, and blockage is a big no no if you want hair growth!
STEP 5: LET YOUR HAIR BREATHE AND ALL WILL GROW
Yes, beautiful hats are the new trend! But please do not have it on all the time. Do not wrap your hair with a towel after you shower because your hair needs to breathe and if you are having problems with hair growth, please let your hair feel the oxygen around u. Take a jog in the morning. This will help your hair breathe as you also get some fresh air. Fresh air equals longer hair.
STEP 6: USE YOUR FINGER TIPS. BE GENTLE. NO CAT NAILS PLEASE
No cat fights with your hair and scalp in the shower! Gentle please! Use your finger tips to wash your hair. Scratching with finger nails can scratch off your hair as well. Your hair is tangled in the shower, no sweat, use a conditioner or a hair pack and it will do the trick! Wah-la! No need to show your cat nails! A good hair pack or conditioner will untangle your hair so you can run your finger tips through your hair for a gentle wash.
STEP 7: GENTLE SCALP MASSAGE TO HELP CIRCULATION FOR HAIR GROWTH
A gentle scalp massage is not just relaxing. It can also speed up your hair growth. Please do not add an oil to your scalp massaging experience as this will clog up your pores and your hair will feel heavy and oily after. Use a water-based essence and massage away.
STEP 8: DO NOT USE HOT WATER. A COMFORTABLE TEMPERATURE AND A QUICK COLD RINSE
Use a comfortable temperature as mentioned in by hair professionals. This will not dry up your scalp, hot water will dry up your scalp causing it to be itchy. This will in turn cause hair to fall out and hair to grow slower. To speed up hair growth do a cool water rinse at the end of your shower if possible. This will help lock in moisture and keep your hair, roots, and scalp nice and fresh for your hair to start growing!
