GIVE YOUR HAIR A REST. Laying off the dye/bleach/straighter/hairdryer is the most obvious suggestion in the book. But have you ever actually tried only using heat on your hair for super special occasions, and dying your hair 50% less than you think you need to? If you want to grow your hair (not to mention have the kind of hair that takes less than five minutes in the morning), you need to give it a rest and appreciate it in it’s natural state.
TIE IT UP. Braid it, low-pony or relaxed bun. The best way to actually give your hair a rest and encourage growth is to tie it up. That way it’s less exposed to the elements, products and just general wear and tear.
USE A PADDLE BRUSH. The wider the brush, the less tension you’re likely to inflict on specific part of your scalp or hair. The spread out bristles are best for avoiding unnecessary hair damage, especially when COMBING OUT your hair.
TAKE SUPPLEMENTS. There are so many hair supplements out there, so do some research to figure out what works for your hair type. For me – now this is going to sound a little crazy crazy – a stylist years ago suggested taking pregnancy vitamins to stimulate hair growth, and for me; it’s the only thing that works. No, you won’t get pregnant, yes, your hair will grow long and luscious.
MOISTURIZER ISN’T JUST FOR YOUR FACE. You’d never forget to moisturizer your face right? Well the same goes for your locks. Whether a moisturizing cream or a hair oil is more your jam, remember to apply frequently for deliciously hydrated locks.
