Dreaming of long, flowing tresses that cascade down your back? You can get them faster than you think. Here are six ways to grow hair faster.
Be Careful With Wet Hair
Hair is at its most vulnerable when it’s wet. That’s because wet hair is easily stretched, broken, and damaged, which is the last thing you want when you’re trying to grow out your mane.
So allow your hair to air dry if at all possible, and don’t brush it while it’s wet. If you need to brush your hair when it’s damp, use a wide-tooth comb. And if you must blow dry, always use a heat protectant.
Get Regular Trims
When your goal is to have long locks, trimming your hair probably sounds like a step in the wrong direction. But hear us out. Getting regular trims helps keep your hair from winding up with split ends and other damage.
You don’t have to take a lot off. A mere ¼ inch every 90 days is probably enough. And that’s a lot less length than you’d lose to breakage.
Skip the Color
We all know that hair dye can be damaging. So when you’re trying to grow your hair out, it can really hinder your goals.
Instead, consider waiting to dye your hair until you’ve achieved your desired length. But if you really have your heart set on coloring it sooner, opt for a shade that’s close to your natural color. That way, you won’t have to use as many damaging chemicals to achieve it.
Boost Your Nutrition
Hair requires good nutrition to grow well, so it’s wise to pay attention to your diet. For the best results, eat plenty of protein from healthy sources like seeds, nuts, beans, whole grains, and fish. And make sure your diet contains lots of B vitamins, omega-3s, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, C, D, and E.
If you feel like you’re not getting enough nutrition from your diet, talk to your doctor about whether you should take a multivitamin. There are many designed specifically for hair growth.
Change Your Washing Routine
Many of us were taught to shampoo our hair every day. And it can be hard to give that habit up. But the truth is your hair needs its natural oils to stay healthy. And shampooing too frequently strips them away.
Instead, try washing two or three times per week. You can always use dry shampoo between washes if you need to freshen up. And always, always, always use conditioner after you shampoo. It’s essential to seal your cuticles and prevent your hair from being damaged.
Turn to Rice Water
Last but not least, give rice water a try! It’s as simple as using your favorite Viori bars. Rice water is chock full of nutrients your hair needs, and it contains a compound called inositol that helps strengthen your hair.
