The best natural products for hair growth
Many women look for long, luxurious dreadlocks when caring for their hair. Hair care companies know this and market products based on the desire of the target customer. However, there is no product that can make your hair grow longer. That’s how it is! Here is the science behind it.
Everyone’s hair grows at more or less the same rate. How long it grows is determined by genetics. The hair follicle is genetically programmed to grow to a certain length before it detaches from the hair follicle or root. Most people lose 50 to 80 strands of hair a day. Yes. Biotin and other supplements promote hair growth. Those supplements promote the growth of total body hair. You may see more or thicker hair, but if you don’t take care of it and care for it properly, the length will remain the same.
People who feel that their hair is not growing probably experience breakage before the hair grows to its full length. Here are some tips to maximize hair growth that don’t include product purchases.
5 tips to grow your hair
1. Drink water
Dry hair is brittle. Brittle hair is more likely to break before reaching its full length. Yes, you can apply moisturizing products, but water is the best moisturizer. Let it come from within. Take your weight and divide it in half. That is the number of ounces of water you should drink each day. For example: if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water a day. If drinking so much water is overwhelming, try to drink most of it in the morning as soon as you wake up and sip throughout the day. I’ve gotten used to drinking flavored sparkling water to break the monotony. Drink your water how you want, but drink it. Your body and hair love it.
2. Take a multivitamin and eat well.
There may be nutrients that you don’t get from your diet. Take a daily multivitamin. Avoid processed foods. They are full of condoms and laboratory experiments. If it doesn’t grow from the ground or doesn’t come from a butcher, avoid eating it. Processed foods tend to be high in calories and low in the nutrients we need for our bodies to function properly. Here are some guidelines for the daily meal plan:
4 servings of protein
4 servings of green vegetables
4 servings of fruit
3 servings of raw carbohydrates (sweet potato, corn, carrots, etc.)
1 serving oil or grain (I use 2 tablespoons of flax seed meal in my morning smoothie to top this)
3. Let your scalp breathe.
Just as all living things need water to survive, they also need oxygen. Hair shampoo regularly cleanses the scalp of product residue and sweat, allowing oxygen to enter the hair follicles. If you like to use tissue, make sure you get to that scalp with a witch hazel swab or something. Avoid shampoos that dry out hair because, remember, dry hair tends to break from damage more often than wet hair. Be sure to read the ingredients of your shampoo before you buy it. Some products will say “Sulphate Free” on the front, but the ingredients include a sulfate derivative in them.
4. Keep your hair hydrated.
Yes. You are drinking half your body weight in water daily. Now, we have to address the products. If you are using products that are oil based products or oils, these should only be applied to wet or damp hair. Why? Well, they are designed to seal in moisture, aka water, in your hair. When oil-based products are applied to dry hair, it’s just oil on dry hair. Water-based products contain water and can be applied to dry hair as a moisturizer. Again, pay attention to the ingredients in the products you are buying. Ingredients like mineral oil and petroleum jelly are not designed to moisturize and can actually leave hair feeling drier than it did before use.
5. Use “low manipulation” styling techniques.
Have a professional install your fabric. Find a style and products that work for your hair so you don’t have to style your hair more than 2 times a week. Detangle only damp or wet hair. If you want super long hair, let your hair sit. The locomotives are low handling. Only the newest hair at the root is twisted. The 50 – 80 threads that come off every day are in. The hair then appears to grow longer because the strands that would normally come out on the comb or brush are still attached.
All hair textures can grow long. It just takes learning how to style your hair and sticking to your routine. One bad heat styling experience can ruin all your hard work. It’s like losing weight. You can diet and exercise, but if you don’t make the necessary lifestyle changes, the weight will creep back up. Nourish your hair and it will grow long and flowing, no matter how curly the ringlets.
