No matter who you are, all of us ladies want one thing: long, soft, gorgeously thick hair with eye-catching shine. Unfortunately however, not all of us are blessed with this look and at the rate in which hair typically grows, it can be months before you hair reaches the length you’re dreaming of. Luckily however, there are things you can be doing to help stimulate the process.
Choose Sulfate-Free Shampoo – We understand that you just want to keep your hair clean but over-washing can lead to dried out strands. Making sure that your hair stays hydrated will allow it to grow longer without breaking. When it does come time to lather up, choose a sulfate-free shampoo, which contains little to no harsh detergents that would otherwise eliminate your hair’s natural oils.
Stimulate Your Scalp – Making sure that you get proper circulation to your scalp is crucial in boosting hair growth. Try massaging your roots with a shampoo that includes peppermint or eucalyptus oil in its list of ingredients. Not only will that refreshing, tingling sensation feel amazing, but it will also encourage blood flow to your follicles.
Style with Care – Everyone knows that too much heat can seriously fry your hair. You have two options here: first, you could embrace air drying your hair and styling naturally or second, you can invest in products formulated to protect your strands from the heat. One great product to consider is Paul Mitchell’s Hot Off the Presses. Aside from avoiding the heat, consider opting for a wide-tooth comb rather than a brush when it comes to detangling. You don’t want to rip through your tangles and cause split ends.
