8 Hacks to Grow Long Hair

#1 Hair extensions

#2 Don’t shampoo daily

The purpose of shampoo is to cleanse your hair and wash away any bacteria or product buildup.  However, washing your hair too frequently can strip your hair of natural oils that keep your hair healthy and hydrated.  Stronger hair means fewer split ends and a better chance that it will grow quicker.

 

#3 Invest in a healthy diet

Healthy eating is beneficial for many aspects of life, especially beauty.  A diet rich in nutrients such as protein and Iron will boost your hair strength and promote growth.

 

#4 Hair-boosting vitamins

If you need an added boost on top of your healthy diet, vitamins are the way to go.  Biotin is a well-known vitamin that can benefit your hair, skin, and nails.  However, always make sure to consult a doctor before consuming any supplements.

 

#5 Use a thermal protectant before hot tools

If you want healthy, damage-free hair, then give up all of your hot tools.  Don’t worry we would never ask you to do that.  However, if you choose to use hot tools, it’s extremely crucial to protect your hair first.  By applying a thermal protectant, you’re adding an extra layer of protection that will protect your hair from damage and frizz.

 

#6 Weekly masks

Going the extra mile to deep condition your hair once a week can make all the difference.  Although using conditioner regularly is great, a deep conditioner can help your hair restore even more moisture.  Hydrated hair means your hair can continue to grow without any breakage.  Set aside one day of the week for all of your beauty rituals to help you remember, such as Sunday.

 

#7 Don’t brush your hair when wet

Hair is very fragile when it is wet, so never brush your hair straight out of the shower.  Make sure to towel or air dry your hair until it is about 40% dry then use a wide-toothed comb to brush your hair from the bottom up.  

 

#8 Regular trims

Lastly, visiting the salon for regular trims will rid your hair of any split ends or breakage.  This will not only help your hair to grow, but your hair will look healthy and fresh.
