Whether you seek to grow or regrow your hair, keep in mind that you have only one head of hair so take good care of it. You can have both the beauty and quantity if you follow these hair care tips. Later we will know about essential oil.
Trying Scalp and Hair Treatments:
Massaging any part of your body improves circulation by increasing blood flow to the area, and your scalp is no exception. When you massage your scalp, the increased blood flow stimulates your hair follicles to grow. Scalp massage is a simple technique for helping your hair grow in healthy and fast.
Try massaging your scalp every time you take a shower. Use the tips of your fingers to gently rub your scalp in a circular motion. Be sure to cover the front, back and sides of your head.
Rub your scalp with essential oils:
Certain essential oils have been shown to help stimulate new hair growth. Increase the benefits of your scalp massage by working in a small amount of essential oil. Pour five to ten drops of oil over your fingertips and massage the oil all over your scalp.
A light oil should be used for fine hair, while for coarse and curly heavy hair, a heavier oil will be suitable.
Here are some hair oil with different mixtures:
• Light Oils: Apricot Kernel, Peach Kernel, Sesame Seed, Meadowfoam Seed, Grapeseed, Evening of Primrose.
• Medium Oils: Sweet Almond, Jojoba, Rosehip Seed, Camellia, Virgin Coconut, Monoi de Tahiti.
• Heavy Oils: Avocado, Olive, Hempseed, Castor, Moringa Seed, Palm, Red Palm, Canola.
To do a conditioning treatment, follow these steps:
• Wet your hair and massage one to two tablespoons of oil into your scalp for five minutes.
• Run your fingers through your hair to distribute the oil from your roots to the tips of your hair. You can also use a wide-tooth comb.
• Cover your hair with a shower cap and let the oil soak in for one to two hours.
• Shampoo your hair as normal. You may have to wash it twice to remove excess oil.
One of the most efficient ways of providing the follicles with the necessary nutrients and that is through the bloodstream.
Various oral vitamin supplements for hair growth is necessary and helpful, like Vitamin B, Vitamin C and biotin.
Minerals necessary for hair growth are calcium, chromium, zinc, copper, iodine, potassium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, silica, sulfur and iron.
A Traditional Chinese Medicine-inspired line of hair products, including pills, shampoo, and a topical liquid for thinning hair, is called Shen Min. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) has great value as a super nutrient.
Protein should be an adequate part of any good diet.
A protein-rich diet makes the hair improved in its appearance.
Supplement your diet with calves’ liver, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ, and two tablespoons of granulated lecithin daily, which maximizes the hairs’ strength, beauty, and vitality.
Other sources of protein include eggs, fish, beans and yogurt.
Protein, available from animal sources – meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, and yogurt – provide all nine indispensable amino acids in adequate amounts.
Brushes & Combs:
Use a boar bristle brush. This is a special type of brush made with natural fibers that closely resemble the texture of human hair.
A good brush cleans your hair, stimulates your scalp and causes the oils to spread down to the hair shaft.
Brushing is the most natural way to distribute your oil to the whole scalp.
Keep your brush clean, wash at least once a week in cold water with your shampoo or with baking soda.
Beta-carotene is also essential for promoting hair growth.
Green and yellow vegetables and fruits are the best source of Beta-carotene.
Oats, lentils, soybeans, peas, walnuts, brown rice and brewer’s yeast are all good sources of biotin.
Know what not to use on your hair:
When your goal is to grow your hair out fast, it’s important to pay attention to the products you use.
Many products contain chemicals that can damage your hair and cause it to be dry and brittle.
Aim to use products that are composed of mainly natural ingredients.
Avoid products that contain the following:
• Sulfates: found in shampoo, these are harsh cleansers that strip your hair of natural oils and dry it out.
• Silicones: found in conditioner, these build up in your hair and cause it to look weighed down and dull.
• Alcohols: found in hairspray, gel and other styling products, these dry out your hair and cause it to get brittle.
Eat omega 3 fatty acids:
These “good” fats support your scalp’s health and promote healthy growth of hair and skin cells. Omega 3 fatty acid is found in salmon, sardines, mackerel, flax seeds and walnuts.
You can take fish or flax seed oil supplements if you don’t enjoy eating foods that are rich in omega 3.
When your body is dehydrated, it shows in your hair. Your hair can become dry, brittle and more prone to breakage.
When your hair breaks and frays, it’s more difficult to grow it into the longer style you’re after. Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water every day.
See a doctor if your hair is falling out:
Sometimes hair loss or extremely slow growth has an underlying cause that can’t be fixed using at-home methods.
If you believe that your hair loss may be a symptom of a more serious illness, make an appointment with your doctor right away.
Here are a few conditions that cause hair loss:
• Scalp infections or skin disorders
• Alopecia areata, a disorder that causes patchy hair loss
• Trichotillomania, a disorder that leads you to pull out your hair
• Certain medications cause hair loss
• Hormonal changes can cause hair loss
Changing Hair-Care Habits
Shampoo your hair less often:
Washing your hair every day can cause it to get dry and brittle.
Each time you shampoo your hair, you wash away the protective oil that keeps it healthy and strong.
When you’re trying to grow your hair fast, it’s best to wash your hair no more than once or twice a week.
Don’t use heat styling tools:
Air drying is really the healthiest choice when it comes to growing out your hair.
Drying your hair with a hair dryer eventually weakens the hair shaft and leads to damage.
The same goes for other heat styling tools like curling irons, flat irons and hot rollers.
Never brush your hair when it’s wet:
When your hair is wet, it stretches and breaks much more easily than when it is dry. That’s why brushing your hair when it’s wet is so damaging. It leads to breakage, frizz and split ends.
Instead, use a wide tooth comb to gently detangle your hair.
Start near the tips and work your way up to the roots, rather than dragging the comb down through your hair to pull out tangles.
Avoid harsh hair treatments and styles:
Dyeing, bleaching, and chemically straightening your hair can cause a lot of damage.
It’s better to leave your hair in its natural state while you’re trying to grow it out.
You should also avoid hair styles that can pull out the hair, like tight weaves or braids.
Protect it from the elements:
The sun, air pollution, and pool chlorine are among the environmental elements that can damage your hair.
If your hair is particularly fragile, it’s a good idea to protect it, just as you would your skin.
