Even though you don’t notice it, your hair is in a state of constant renewal. That is why you need to take care of it so it grows in a healthy, balanced way. You should consume certain vitamins and minerals that can help naturally promote hair growth, such as foods rich in protein like fish, eggs, and meat.
Of course, there are homemade recipes and store-bought products that can also help your hair grow faster, although keep in mind that your hair will not grow more than 1.5 or 3 cm per month.
In this article, we offer some essential tips for stimulating hair growth. These tips are based on natural products, which have advantages over the products you find in stores.
- It is important to wash your hair just 2 or 3 times a week to conserve its natural oils. Make sure your shampoo doesn’t contain salt, as this can dry your hair.
- It is best to wash your hair with cold water, which will give it strength and shine. Massage your scalp well when applying the shampoo and conditioner.
Use a soft brush so you don’t pull on your hair. Brushing stimulates the production of oils that are responsible for lubricating your scalp and, of course, your hair.
Don’t abuse straighteners
Nowadays we all use straighteners and hair dryers, but try not to use them too often and also, try to use them on a low temperature.
Don’t use them on wet or damp hair. Even though there are now straighteners that work on wet hair, it is best to avoid doing so as this is when hair is at its most vulnerable state, and could be burned or damaged.
It’s normal that some of your weekly activities will cause stress, i.e. university, school, family, work, and much more. But make an effort to treat the cause of this stress before it causes sickness or affects the health of your body and your mind. When you are constantly stressed, your hair tends to fall out and look tired and weak.
