Your hair is your crowning glory. This statement rings true to most people, which is why we spend ample time trying to find ways to make it look as healthy and as lush as possible. Hair however is somehing that can be easily maintained and hardly requires much time. Here are some basic things you should know in order to allow your hair to grow as healthy as possible!
Maintain a healthy lifestyle.
When it comes to hair growth or healthy hair, it’s not only what you put on it that makes a difference, it’s also what you consume. What you put in your mouth, effects how your body and blood functions hence having an effect on your hair. Healthy food such as fruits, and vegetables help with your diet and also hair growth. Having a balanced diet, working out and drinking enough water (we’ve mentioned this ample times!) all play a key role in how your hair grows. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help you avoid things like having dry hair.
Don’t fuss about it.
People seem to believe the more you comb your hair, the faster it growns. However, contrary to popular belief, the less you comb, touch or play with it, the faster it grows. This is because constantly brushing your hair (especially with the wrong brush) causes hair damage and hair fall.
Always, always condition.
Your hair has natural oils that some shampoos strip when you wash your hair. This is why condition plays such a big role in having healthy long hair. Hair needs to be well moisturized as it avoids dryness, breaking and other form of damages. Get a good conditioner that isn’t too oily, but at the same time leaves your hair enough to look natural and healthy.
Avoid using heat.
Try to not use heat on your hair. While flat ironing your hair from time to time is considered okay, try avoiding using it frequently. Using too much heat on your hair causes your hair to dry out. Try looking for hairstyles that don’t require using heat and are easy to manage. Also, avoid using the hairdryer so often. If possible, allow hair to dry naturally.
Trim your hair regularly.
Doing this may cause your hair from not growing long as fast but it certainly helps remove the split ends that could potentially cause more damage. You can do it montly, or once every two months depending on what you are comfortable with. If your hair is healthier, it requires less maintaining.
