Tips To Grow Healthy, Long & Shiny Hair

Remember that it can’t grow overnight.

Gaining new length is going to take time. “Hair typically only grows about a quarter of an inch — to a half an inch max — a month,” says celebrity hair stylist Mark Townsend, who helped Ashley Olsen grow out her asymmetric bob to past her waist. “And that’s only if it is super-healthy and doesn’t have a ton of split ends.” The bottom line: practice patience.

Pay attention to how your skin feels after using hair care products.

It’s easy to see shiny locks initiallyand assume a product is working for you. What the formula is doing to your skin is generally what it’s doing to your hair. Does it make your skin feel dry, stripped, heavy, waxy, sticky, or greasy Or does it feel soft, hydrated, silky, and supple? Treat your hair the way you would treat your skin — after all, it’s another part of you! If your hair follicles are clogged and congested, there’s no way it can grow as efficiently.

Sleep on a silk pillowcase.

Getting better hair in your sleep is possible — all you need is to switch up your pillowcase. “Silk is easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage,”. The less breakage your hair experiences, the longer your locks will be.

Add a vitamin to your morning routine.

If your diet isn’t supplying you with enough nutrition, a supplement could make a world of difference. Look for a multivitamin that’s formulated and labeled ‘For Hair, Skin, and Nails. “Those contain important vitamins like biotin, vitamin C, and B vitamins that support hair health.” Bonus: You’ll get better skin in the process.

Finish your shower with a cool rinse.

A super steamy shower isn’t just bad for your skin — it’s also rough on your hair. Turn the water temperature down when cleansing. And rinse with cool water to help seal the cuticle and strengthen your hair before styling it.

Ironically, a scissor is your friend.

Although getting regular trims to snip splits won’t make your hair actually grow faster, it will keep tips looking healthy and prevent splits from working their way up strands, requiring you to chop hair off more often. “If you wait so long that splits are causing your hair to break off high up on the strand, your hair will actually be shorter than if you get consistent trims,” Townsend says, who suggests asking your stylist to take around just an eighth of an inch off every 10 to 12 weeks to prevent extreme split ends before they start.

Use conditioner every time you shampoo.

If your hair is wet, that means you have to condition it. Over time, from coloring and heat styling, strands start to get thinner at the bottom. Conditioner helps replace the lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft, as well as seal the cuticle to help prevent more damage from happening so that you can get your hair to grow longer and look healthier.

Apply an oil or mask treatment weekly.

Because hair that touches your shoulders or beyond can be several years old and most likely needs more TLC than normal conditioner. Townsend suggests using moisture-based masks and oils weekly.

Stay stress-free

Stress is one of the most important factors that contribute to hair loss. It is believed that stress can disrupt the normal hair cycle and trigger hairs to enter the telogen or fall-out phase. Thus, when striving for faster hair growth, minimize the stress in your life. To manage stress, you can use meditation, breathing exercises, or other relaxation techniques. Plus, be sure to get your beauty sleep as the growth hormone is released during sleep

Egg Mask

Eggs are highly beneficial for faster hair growth because they are packed with protein and also contain iron, sulfur, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. You can use an egg hair mask at least once a month.
