In a nutshell:
But often due to inadequate nourishment and damage, our natural hair growth is hindered. You need regular haircuts to ensure that your strands stay healthy and don’t break off at the ends. Regular trimming of hairs every six to eight weeks ensures fast hair growth. What happens is that due to excessive dirt and sun, the end of the hair usually gets damaged and rough, inducing split ends. So, even if you want to grow your hair longer, it’s important to get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. You might have noticed that often the ends of the hair are thinner and damaged when compared to the root end connecting to the scalp. Conditioning after every hair wash helps seal the cuticle at the end and prevents the hair from further damage. Many of us shampoo our hair when we shower, thinking that washing away dirt is good for our hair. But there are shampoos that only take away the natural oils on our head which is essential to keep our hair soft.
Conditioner helps repair the damaged particles in your hair and keep it strong. Eating enough protein is important to maintaining a high replacement rate of hair. Massaging the scalp can help turn over dead skin cells and stimulate blood flow to the hair follicle. Instead, using the right brush such as the boar bristle brush can actually increase the blood circulation of the scalp. Brushing the hair makes your roots stronger and hair grows faster. Hair is fed by the bloodstream and when you comb through your scalp, you encourage blood to rise to the surface, causing micro-circulation. This increased circulation brings with it more oxygen and nutrients, nourishing the hair roots and promoting hair growth. Combing activates your sebaceous glands, the little guys at your hair roots that produce your scalp’s natural oil (sebum). Along with keeping the scalp and hair moisturized, sebum coats the scalp surface and works to create the right pH balance, which is very important for a healthy scalp. As a second part to activating your oil glands, combing helps distribute those important oils throughout your hair. Natural oils are good, but who wants it to all just sit at the top of their head?
The oils that come from your sebaceous glands are a natural conditioner, and combing your scalp, down the hair shaft, and to the ends of your hair helps condition the whole hair. Combing your hair helps to loosen and remove dead skin which can clog the pores of the scalp and block the follicles, causing scalp irritation as well as affecting hair growth. Warm oil in a water bath, making sure it’s not too hot so you don’t accidentally burn yourself. Massage warm oil into the roots of your hair and scalp. Sulfates, which are detergents found in many shampoos, can weaken hair follicles over time, making your hair susceptible to breakage and the appearance of thinning.
If you have color treated hair, it’s especially important to avoid sulfates because they can pull the pigment from your strands. 9. Drying your hair naturally (Avoid blower, iron, or other heat on your hair) While everybody loves their hot styling tools like blow dryers, hot rollers and flat irons, the best way to avoid split ends is to skip the heat a few times a week. The high temperatures of your favorite tools can weaken and damage your hair, resulting in breakage and dull, dry strands. Over time structural damage to your hair will cause the fragile strands to break. This is as damaging as making a hair bun because your hair will get entangled.
