Hair, just like every other part of our body, needs constant care. In fact, hair grows about half an inch per month. You’ve seen many products that promise to make your hair longer and stronger. But in order to achieve your wish, you need to pay more attention to your hair and put it under the right treatment.
One of the most important steps when trying to grow your hair is not to forget to trim the split ends on every 6-8 weeks. It might seem illogical, but if you don’t take care of the split ends, your hair will become unhealthy and might start breaking. If you trim your hair regularly, it will become stronger and split ends will be reduced. The amount of hair that needs to be cut off is about half to one inch.
If you’re used to washing your hair every day, you should better reconsider that action. Washing your hair every day makes it oilier and more fragile. Four times a week is enough.
Another secret you might not know is that the colder the water you wash your hair with, the better. Cold water makes your hair look shinier and healthier. Hot water makes it susceptible to breakage. Also, using conditioner is a must! Conditioners are full of proteins which help the hair shaft, and they also help your hair replace the lipids. Actually, experts advise us not to use shampoo every time we take s shower. Shampoos can extract the crucial natural oils that keep our hair healthy and soft.
It’s important to make oil massage on your scalp every week. Experts advise us to use moisturizing hair masks and oils. This is something you use before washing your hair with shampoo. After massaging your hair with an oil mask, you’ll feel the difference immediately. You hair will feel stronger, thicker and softer. You can buy the perfect product from a store, or you can also make it at home. Any kind of oil you like will make wonders with your hair. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, anything you like.
It’s very important to minimize the use of heating products, such as hair straighteners, blow dryers, curling irons, etc. They cause a huge damage to your hair and you should try to use them as seldom as possible. But when you do, it’s very important to use hair serums in order to protect your hair from the heat.
Over-brushing also causes damage to your hair. Brushing your hair once or twice a day is enough, unless it’s really necessary to brush it more often. When you go out of the shower and your hair is wet, you must not brush it. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb.
At the end, don’t forget to drink a lot of water and get enough sleep in order to make your hair look healthier. If you use the right treatment for your hair, the results will come very soon.
