Growing your hair is not as daunting as it may seem. With just a few steps, you can be on your way to having long and healthy hair, which is what every woman dreams of, right? But first, you should know that following these steps for a day or even a week isn't going to show results. You will need to adhere to the following in order to see the fruit of your labor.
Trim Your Ends
When growing hair, it is essential to trim your ends as split ends can cause breakage in the hair. What the split end will do is continue to split until it reaches the root or mid-way - snapping the entire hair off. Sometimes, it may break off multiple strands. It's best to catch it before it does any damage.
Limit Hair Washings
A clean scalp is great, but washing the hair excessively can cause the hair to become dry and brittle - leading to breakage. Shampoo contains alcohol, which is known to strip the hair from its natural oils.
Refrain from Using Excessive Heat
Using too much heat can cause your hair to become fried or dried. Dry hair is more prone to breakage. If you have to use heat, a heat protectant spray is recommended.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals as Much as Possible
Some women enjoy their hair straight or curly but in order to achieve that look, sometimes chemicals are needed. Chemicals are hazardous to the hair and can cause it to become brittle and weak. So, be cautious.
The nutrients from your food will help each strand stay healthy and strong, preventing breakage. Try to stay away from animal fats, sugar, and sodium as it can weaken the hair strands.
Consume the Appropriate Amounts of Water
Consuming 8 cups of water per day can have a positive effect on your hair - you will notice a healthier appearance.
Believe it or not, stress can play a huge role in the growth of your hair. If you are stress, that may impede your hair from growing or slow its growth rate down significantly.
