Many people want to look good all the time but the hair is often one part of the body that they tend to ignore. They even tend to experiment with a lot of hairstyles and products to go with the trend without really being cautious about the effects. To them, regular washing, combing and brushing are enough to keep their hair healthy.
It’s never too late to start taking good care of your hair. If you want to keep a healthy crowning glory until your senior years, the best way is to maintain it the right way. Some of you may not be aware but there are actually techniques that can help you make your hair grow faster without having to use medicines or other chemically laden products.
Now is the time to change your old ways when it comes to hair care. If you follow certain steps and be consistent, you can always get the hair length you wish in a much shorter time.
First, always be gentle with your hair. Comb gently. Brush gently. Massage gently when cleaning it. To prevent tangles after a bath, use a wide-toothed comb and comb your hair in a slow motion. Additionally, avoid pulling your hair tightly especially for women who are fond of ponytails, braids, cornrows and clips.
Second, avoid shampoos and conditioners containing harsh chemicals. Choose the gentler products that are fit for your specific hair type. This also applies to your hair styling products from gels and sprays to mousse and hair straightening formulas.
Third, take multivitamins every day. Remember that not everything you eat every day contain the required daily nutrients that your body needs to grow properly. By taking multivitamins, you get additional nutrients. Vitamin B complex, for instance, is essential in promoting hair growth. Other vitamins and minerals that help in blood circulation including iron are also helpful.
Fourth, maintain a healthy lifestyle. This means eating a balanced diet every day, getting enough sleep, doing different forms of exercise and avoiding vices such as drinking alcohol and smoking. Avoid the stress at all costs by taking the time to relax when you can.
Fifth, don’t try to lose a lot of weight in just a very short period. Experts say that sudden weight loss can affect the hair’s growth as well. This is because as your body loses weight, a lot of nutrients are also being shed. There are certain diets for people who want to shed their extra pounds that lack nutrients and when the body takes in less of the proper nutrients, hair loss can result.
Finally, you may want to use some organic remedies. These include the use of aloe vera, coconut milk and rosemary among others in massaging your scalp and hair. Some of these natural home remedies can be used alone or mixed with other herbs and oils. They can be massaged several times a week on your scalp and hair to promote proper blood circulation and hair growth.
The key is to always be consistent and you will eventually reap the benefits.
