How to grow hair naturally, that is the burning question. So you chopped your hair and regretted how you even did it in the first place. Let me guess, post-breakup blues, you saw a rad pixi hairstyle on Instagram, or overall just for a change. I had my fair share of “what-was-I-thinking” hair moment. Now unlike “Leslie” my doll who became my first “client” at a tender age of 6 (precocious moi got hold of scissors, cut her long blonde hair, thinking it will grow back), thankfully our mane does grow back. Are there tips to accelerate? scroll below for my two cents worth.
First and foremost, be patient because to grow hair naturally means setting realistic expectations. Our hair grows on average half an inch per month. There is really no hard and fast rule when it comes to accelerated hair growth because our hair dynamics are largely determined by genetics and partly our individual practice.
Anecdotally on hair products and limited clinical studies on oral supplementation, keratin has been cited to preserve the integrity of hair and prevent hair loss. Quite unrelated but my eyelash game is strong because the product I use has keratin in it.
I know it can be difficult under hot and humid climate but try your best not to shampoo your hair every day because it depletes hair’s needed moisture. The smell as well as texture of your hair will signal you when it’s dirty and funky.
After your final rinse, follow a leave-in argan oil, massaging hair from roots to tips; this process helps keep the hair hydrated and look nourished.
Trim split ends right away before they get worse which will require a bigger chop if caught too late.
Lastly, take a break from styling tools. Frequent use and abuse can lead to fried hair which will affect the rate of your hair growth.
