Dreaming of growing your hair quickly? A balanced diet and proper care will help you speed up the process!
Cleansing & Moisturizing
Most of the stylers clog hair follicles, and hot styling makes the hair dry. You can minimize the loss, periodically indulging yourself in one of the procedures proposed:
Cleansing (generally needed once a month): take 3-4 tablespoons of coarse common or sea salt, wet the hair and gently massage it into the scalp for 2-3 minutes, and then wash your hair with shampoo.
Hydration and nutrition: warm a cup of olive oil in a steam bath, pour it on top of the head (the hair should be wet, and the oil – not too hot), and distribute the oil from roots to ends using a comb. Then wrap a towel around your hair and keep it for 20 minutes. Finally wash away the oil with a shampoo and apply a conditioner as usual.
You’ve probably heard that regular trimming promotes hair growth. This statement is only partially true. In fact, haircut does not affect hair growth. But, if this is not done, the ends start to split, exfoliating each time more and more. So, the moment will come when you will have to cut not a half-inch but much more. And it will take long to grow hair again. If you don’t want to trim your hair too often, use a little serum for split ends after every hair wash. It moisturizes the hair, restores split ends and protects them from damage.
Nutrition & Hair Health
You will not grow beautiful hair when you are on a starvation diet. Relationship between health and hair nutrition is incredibly strong. In fact, follicle’s active work requires full blood flow. It is through the blood that the hair root receives all the nutrients needed for normal growth. By reducing your diet, you force the body to give everything to the vital organs (heart, kidneys, liver), with skin and hair becoming the last in the queue. First of all you need to increase your protein intake – it is the basic building material for hair. Include eggs, fish, chicken, turkey, and cottage cheese into your daily diet. To produce the energy necessary for your body and hair, eat nuts or seeds often, but little. You’ll see how quickly and gratefully your hair will respond to such a diet.
Stress Harms the Hair
The last and the most difficult: keep Buddhist calm. Stress is not your mate. It negatively affects the whole body. Always leave time for recreation, walking and meeting friends.
