There tips for growing long, healthy hair are simple and don’t require expensive hair care products or vitamins. Rather, all that is required is a commitment to maintaining a healthy hair care routine. By using some specific techniques, you can grow hair that is not only long but also in good condition.
Balance your diet
The building blocks of hair are proteins. Your diet will thus play important role in terms of helping you get long locks. Increase the intake of fish, poultry, wholegrain foods, fresh nuts, fruits and vegetables.
Hair gets the nutrient that it needs from the circulatory system. You can improve scalp circulation through massage. Use your fingertips to gently rub the scalp by moving your fingertips in small circles.
Cut off every inch of your damaged hair. There is no way to repair damaged hair, therefore, you must start out with healthy hair, even if it’s short, to have healthy hair while your hair is growing.
Keep your ends moisturized. On a daily basis, add moisture to your ends in terms of a lotion moisturizer, oil like jojoba or a leave-in conditioner. Keep your tresses super conditioned by using a moisturizing conditioner bi-weekly and a protein conditioner once a month to keep your hair nice and strong.
Stay Away from Heat
While occasional flat iron and curling iron use is usually fine (so long as the heat isn’t too high), you should minimize heat styling as much as possible. Choose hairstyles that don’t rely on so much heat, as well as gentle styling methods like wraps, wet sets and twists.
