Most women want to have long and strong locs when they are taking care of their hair. Companies that produce hair care products are aware of this fact about their target customer’s desire. But this is also a truth that no product can grow your hair. Yes, you read it right! There is a science behind it that I’m going to explain below.
Everyone’s hair growth rate is almost the same. Its length depends on genetics. Hair follicles are genetically programmed to grow to a certain length before they fall from the hair root. Most people lose 50-80 hairs every day. Yes, Biotin and other supplements can indeed promote hair growth. These supplements can promote hair growth throughout the body. You may see more / thicker hair, but if you don’t take care of it properly and take care of your hair yourself, the length of the hair will remain the same.
People who feel like their hair isn’t growing are probably experiencing breakage before the hair grows to its maximum length. Here are a few tips to maximize hair growth that doesn’t include buying products.
5 tips to increase your hair growth
- Drink water
Dry hair is brittle and is more likely to break before reaching its maximum length. Yes, you can use moisturizing products, but water is the best moisturizing product. Let it come from within. Check your weight and divide it in half. That is how many ounces of water you should drink every day. For example: If you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water every day. If you start drinking so much water, try to drink plenty of water in the morning when you get up in the morning and drink water throughout the day. I started drinking flavored water to break the monotony. Drink any water, you can drink whatever you want. Your body and hair love it.
- Take multivitamins and eat correctly.
There may be no nutrition in the diet that you need to grow your hair. Take any multivitamin every day. Avoid processed foods. They are full of preservatives and laboratory experiments. If it is not grown from the earth or from a butcher, then avoid eating it. Processed foods are often high in calories and low in nutrients, which is what our body needs for normal functioning. Here are some guidelines for daily diet planning:
- 4 servings of protein
- 4 servings of green vegetables
- 4 servings of fruit
- 3 servings of unprocessed carbohydrates (sweet potatoes, corn, carrots, etc.)
- 1 part oil or grains (I use 2 tablespoons of flaxseed powder in the morning smoothie )
- Let your scalp breathe.
Just as every living thing needs water to survive, it also needs oxygen. Regularly shampooing the hair can remove residual scalp from products and sweat, allowing oxygen to enter the hair follicles. If you want to wear knitting, make sure to reach that scalp with something like a witch hazel swab. Avoid using shampoos to dry your hair, because remember that dry hair tends to break more easily than moisturized hair due to damage. Before buying, please make sure to read the ingredients of the shampoo. Some products will claim “sulfate free” on the front, but the ingredients include sulfate derivatives.
- Moisturize your hair
Yes. You drink half of your body weight in water every day. Now we must solve the issue of the product. If you are using oil-based products or oils, you should only apply them to wet hair. why? Well, the purpose is to seal moisture (that is, water) in the hair. When applying oil-based products to dry hair, just apply oil to the dry part of hair. Water-based products contain water and can be used as a moisturizer for dry hair. Also, please pay attention to the ingredients of the purchased product. Ingredients such as mineral oil and petroleum jelly are not designed to moisturize and can actually make your hair drier than before.
- Use “low manipulation” styling techniques.
Look for styles and products that suit your hair so that you don’t have to style it more than 2 times a week. Try to detangle only damp or wet hair. If you want extra long hair, let your hair loc. Locs are low maneuverable. Only the latest hair roots are twisted. The 50-80 strands dropped every day are located in it. As a result, the hair seems to be a little longer because the hair that usually comes out in the brush is still attached because of being in locs.
All hair textures can be long. Just learn the hair and stick to the routine. Poor heat styling experience can ruin all your hard work. It’s like losing weight. You can diet and exercise, but if you do not make the necessary lifestyle changes, your weight will begin to gradually increase. Nourish your hair, no matter how kinky your curls are, it will be long and flowing.
