The best natural products for hair growth
Many women look for long, luxurious locs when caring for their hair. Hair care companies know this and market products based on the desire of the target customer. However, there is no product that can make your hair grow longer. That’s right! Here is the science behind it.
Everyone’s hair grows at pretty much the same rate. The length it grows is determined by genetics. The hair follicle is genetically programmed to grow to a certain length before shedding from the follicle or the hair root. Most people lose 50 to 80 strands of hair per day. Yes. Biotin and other supplements promote hair growth. These supplements promote full body hair growth. You may see more / thicker hair, but if you are not taking care of it and not caring for it properly, the length will remain the same.
People who feel that their hair is not growing are likely to experience breakage before the hair grows to its maximum length. Here are some tips to maximize hair growth that don’t include buying products.
5 tips to grow your hair
1. Drink water
Dry hair is brittle. Brittle hair is more likely to break before it reaches its maximum length. Yes, you can apply moisturizing products, but water is the best moisturizer. Let it come from within. Take your weight and divide it in half. That is the number of ounces of water you should drink daily. For example: if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water a day. If drinking that much water is overwhelming, try to drink most of it in the morning as soon as you wake up and sip throughout the day. I’ve gotten used to drinking flavored sparkling water to break the monotony. Drink your water however you like, but drink it. Your body and hair love it.
2. Take a multivitamin and eat right.
There may be nutrients that you don’t get from your diet. Take a multivitamin daily. Avoid processed foods. They are packed with preservatives and lab experiments. If it doesn’t grow from the ground or come from a butcher, avoid eating it. Processed foods tend to be high in calories and low in the nutrients we need for our bodies to function properly. Here are some daily meal plan guidelines:
4 protein servings
4 servings of green vegetables
4 servings of fruit
3 servings of raw carbohydrates (sweet potato, corn, carrots, etc.)
1 serving of oil or grain (I use 2 tablespoons of flax seed flour in my morning smoothie to cover this)
3. Let your scalp breathe.
Just like every living thing needs water to survive, it also needs oxygen. Wash your hair with a shampoo that regularly cleanses the scalp of product residues and sweat, allowing oxygen to enter the hair follicles. If you like to wear tissue, be sure to reach that scalp with a witch hazel swab or something. Avoid hair-drying shampoos because, remember, dry hair tends to break due to damage more often than hydrated hair. Make sure you read the ingredients in your shampoo before you buy it. Some products say “sulfate-free” on the front, but the ingredients include a derivative of sulfate.
4. Keep your hair hydrated.
Yes. You are drinking half your body weight in water every day. Now we have to address the products. If you are using products that are oil-based or oil-based products, these should only be applied to wet or damp hair. Why? Well, they are designed to seal in moisture, also known as water, in the hair. When oil-based products are applied to dry hair, it is just oil to dry hair. Water-based products contain water and can be applied to dry hair as a moisturizer. Again, pay attention to the ingredients of the products you are buying. Ingredients like mineral oil and petroleum jelly are not designed to moisturize and can actually leave your hair drier than before use.
5. Use “low manipulation” styling techniques.
Have a professional install your fabric. Find a style and products that work for your hair so you don’t have to style it more than twice a week. Only detangle damp or wet hair. If you want super long hair, let your hair part. The locs are low manipulation. Only the newest hair is twisted at the root. The 50 – 80 strands that fall out every day are located. So the hair seems to grow longer because the strands that would normally come out on the comb or brush are still attached.
All hair textures can grow long. You just need to learn your hair and follow your routine. A bad heat styling experience can ruin all your hard work. It is like losing weight. You can diet and exercise, but if you don’t make the necessary lifestyle changes, your weight will slowly start to rise. Nourish your hair and it will grow long and flowing, no matter how curly the curls are.
