Do you want long and healthy hair to enjoy all the eccentricities of the hairstyles? Adopt these five tips, which stimulate hair growth.
Long hair has been the hairstyle of the moment for a while. It must be said that the beautiful wavy lengths immediately add a glamorous side to our style and allow us to change our hairstyle as we see fit: in a high ponytail, in a hippie bun, in a bohemian braid or even natural, loose.
The biggest concern is that of the growth of our hair. Either because it just doesn’t grow, or it’s too fragile, or because early spring inspired us to cut it, there are many reasons, but although our hair grows one centimeter per month, there are some 100% natural treatments such using hair growth products that will allow us to accelerate its regeneration.
Cut the ends
There is no secret to making hair grow faster: you should cut it off. This may seem paradoxical, but it is nonetheless very logical. In fact, if we continually postpone our hairdressing appointment, our ends will refine, forks will appear, and our lengths will become brittle. However, unhealthy hair grows less quickly. Therefore, cutting the ends will allow our hair to regain all its strength and vitality and, therefore, grow faster. Then we get into the habit of regularly going to the hairdresser, every 2 to 3 months to cut a few centimeters. The more frequent the appointments, the less we will have to cut because our hair will be less damaged.
A healthy and balanced diet is necessary to show beautiful skin, and also healthy hair. To promote its regeneration, we mainly turn to foods rich in iron, zinc, proteins, vitamins and essential fatty acids, such as red meat, seafood, legumes, green vegetables, fruits, eggs, nuts or fatty fish.
Exfoliate the scalp
Like the skin of the face, the scalp must also be exfoliated: excess sebum, dead cells, dandruff, all this and more affect hair regrowth. The solution? Apply a scrub once a week to remove all these impurities and purify the scalp with natural ingredients. For this, we need coarse salt, or ground coffee, to mix it with a little olive oil. It is applied to the root and massaged with your fingertips in circular motions for a few minutes before shampooing. We always finish rinsing the shampoo with a jet of cold water, which protects the scalp and gives the hair a natural shine.
Massage your head
Scalp massage activates microcirculation that will accelerate hair regrowth. Twice a week, for 5 to 10 minutes, we give ourselves a little moment of sweetness by massaging the entire skull with our fingertips, using circular motions. We start at the nape of the neck before moving up to the top of the skull and ending at the level of the temples. The massage can be carried out without a product or by using a blend of invigorating essential oils such as pine, lemon, ylang-ylang or thyme essential oil. In addition to doing our hair good, this practice does us good in every way: we relax and feel better.
Hair masks are a staple to speed up hair growth. In fact, it allows you to be deeply hydrated and nourished to restore your vitality and therefore grow faster. Once a week, we opt for one of these natural recipes and it can beneficial hairstyles for thin hair.
Castor oil is known to promote hair growth. Rich in vitamin E, it helps to strengthen our horse by hydrating and nourishing it. To facilitate its application, it is mixed with another lighter oil such as olive oil or argan oil. Then we mix a tablespoon of castor oil with 3 tablespoons of olive oil. The mixture is applied to the entire scalp and hair, gently massaged in for a few minutes and allowed to sit for a minimum of 30 minutes before washing with a mild shampoo.
Coconut milk mask
Known for its protective properties, coconut milk helps repair damaged brittle or split hair, rehydrates dry hair and promotes new growth. To do this, simply mix 6 tablespoons of coconut milk with 3 tablespoons of castor oil. Apply the mask to all of your hair and leave it in for at least 30 minutes before rinsing it out. We can also add a few drops of basil essential oil to the mixture that will activate the microcirculation of the skull.
Rich in protein, the egg nourishes the hair and accelerates its growth by increasing its cellular metabolism. To take advantage of its benefits, mix an egg with a tablespoon of castor oil and a tablespoon of honey. Then the preparation is applied to the entire hair, from the roots to the ends. Leave on for about thirty minutes and rinse.
Last minute tips: Also avoid washing your hair too often, especially using shampoo. It brushes the hair gently, always starting by detangling the ends, and also minimizes the use of heating devices, which does a lot of damage to the hair fiber.
