HOW TO GROW YOUR HAIR LONGER & HEALTHIER

HOW TO GROW YOUR HAIR LONGER & HEALTHIER

Long, healthy hair is a dream, but it often requires patience and care. If you’re yearning for those flowing Rapunzel-like locks, keep in mind that it takes time. However, accelerating hair growth is not an impossible feat; in fact, it’s quite achievable! Here’s how to supercharge your hair growth and steer those hair follicles in the right direction. These tips are based on my personal experience.

  1. Indulge in a Hair MaskUsing a hair mask can work wonders, whether applied before or after shampooing. Sometimes, I even do both when I have the time. For a pre-wash treatment, I generously apply coconut oil from root to tip, leaving it in for at least 30 minutes (or longer if time allows). Initially, I did this before every wash and noticed my hair becoming longer and healthier within a couple of months. Any organic coconut oil will do, but I personally recommend the one from Trader Joe’s. It leaves my hair feeling silky and smooth, making styling a breeze.
  2. Avoid Heat StylingWhile it’s tempting to style your hair with heat, it’s best to resist the urge. Heat can be detrimental to hair growth, as I learned the hard way. The more I subjected my hair to heat styling, the slower it grew. Embrace your natural hair texture, and if you must use heat, opt for indirect methods like blow drying instead of direct heat. Always use a heat protectant when heat styling. Personally, I limit blow-drying to once a month, or sometimes, not at all, and that’s when I noticed the most growth.
  3. Simplify Your Hair RoutineI used to overwhelm my hair with various treatments and products in an attempt to stimulate growth. This not only confused my hair but also added unnecessary complexity to my routine. Simplify your approach by using only what works for you. Less is often more.
  4. Consider SupplementsWhile biotin is commonly recommended for hair growth, it didn’t agree with me. I experimented with different brands but never found one that suited me. In fact, my first biotin supplement caused breakouts because I didn’t drink enough water. If you decide to try biotin, do your research and find a brand that works for you. Personally, I found collagen supplements to be effective. I initially bought collagen to improve my skin’s texture and even out my skin tone, as I had acne scars. Collagen, in addition to its skin benefits, also promotes hair growth and overall hair health.
  5. Moisturize Your HairHydration is key to maintaining hair quality and preventing breakage. Strengthen your hair to promote growth by applying a small amount of almond oil from mid-shaft to ends after washing, especially if you don’t plan to style it. Avoid applying oil to the roots if they tend to get oily naturally. Almond oil is a lightweight and effective moisturizer, enhancing shine, softness, and strength. Feel free to use any oil that suits your hair type.
  6. Extend Time Between WashesGive your hair a break by washing it every few days instead of daily. Frequent washing can strip away the natural oils produced by your scalp, which are beneficial for hair growth. This adjustment can be challenging, but it’s worth it. Start with 2-3 days between washes and gradually extend the duration. I can now go a whole week without washing, and it has significantly aided my hair growth.
  7. Gentle Drying TechniquesAfter washing, avoid using a regular towel to dry your hair, as it can cause damage and breakage. I’ve been using a T-shirt for years, and there are also microfiber towels designed specifically for drying hair.
  8. Mindful BrushingBrush your hair gently, especially when it’s wet. If you must brush wet hair, use a wet brush or be exceptionally gentle to prevent damage and breakage.

In Conclusion

These strategies helped me transform my shoulder-length hair into nearly waist-length hair within a year and a half. While it may seem like a long journey when you’re eager for long hair, be patient and embrace the process. Confidence in your progress at each stage is key to enjoying the journey to longer, healthier locks.
