Every female I know of wants longer hair, now.
And you don’t know these girls, just look at the most popular hair videos and hair YouTubers: there are thousands of hits on their videos which show you ‘how to GROW your hair’ Faster, Better, Longer, and Fuller.
But is it possible?
The average hair grows at a rate of 1 cm to about 1 full inch a month.
But who says we have to be average?
I believe we can speed it up or at least get the full potential of 1 inch every month.
Yes, I know your hair is different than the next girl’s. It’s kinkier, curlier, stranger, bouncier, lighter, denser, thicker, wavier, tighter, and wilder than hers. Well, I still think I can assist you to finding something that can promote it’s grow quicker.
Think of the man with the spinning plates. Remember him? He used his hands or other tools to keep many plates spinning at one time. This is what you need to do with your hair. No, not spin it, but have several things working for you at once. Fortunately, you only need three. That spinning man probably had 5-7 plates!
Here are the three main ways that need to be working for & with you, to expedite your hair growth:
The part where your hair sprouts from your scalp is the top of your roots to deep underneath the skin is where it seems to disappear and actually end. It’s very important to keep this part of your hair healthy, since new growth stems from here. To cultivate growth in this area, massage it at least every other day or night. For the best results, you should do it daily. Gently rubbing this scalp area stimulates the skin around the hair follicles and encourages growth. It also feels good and subsides any stress you have. Relax & enjoy!
What’s inside your body is more critical than what you put on it. I’m sure you’ve heard about keeping a healthy diet & exercises many times before, so I wont re-iterate that here. Yet, a lessor known, but equally important factor of keeping a balanced, healthy body is this: what is right, good, or best for you, might not, be right, good, and best for me. They say this and they say that, but it’s better to LISTEN to your body and discover what it needs. Everyone’s body is different and needs an individual plan for health. Your body was well made and knows how to communicate with you what is optimum for your health. You may need to rest more this week and only do two days of cardio workout. Or, you body may crave a certain food. It will craves certain things at various times, because there is an element in that food, which your body is missing to function properly. Eat that particular food item and watch your health bloom. In addition, stay very hydrated with water each day and have 2 to 1 ratio with every other type of drink you choose, should you decide to drink non-water drinks.
The ends of your hair need to be fiercely protected. This is the area of your hair that gives you the length you crave. You want to retain as much of it in its best state as possible. This means you must keep them moisturized with conditioners, oil, and/or water, as well as tuck them into you hair in protective styles so the weather and environment elements will not hamper its thriving. If possible, wear protective styles 50% – 75% of the day .
These are the only true elements you need for hair growth.
The type of products you use, your hair routine, etc., etc., really doesn’t matter in light of these. The only thing that is crucial in using hair products is that you do not saturate it with synthetic harmful ingredients. Everything else that touts hair growth is FLUFF.
