Whether you want thicker hair, longer hair, or healthier hair in general, all these goals have one thing in common: hair growth. To start the New Year off on the right foot, we're providing our top tips on how to maximize your hair growth in 2024!
1. Stop Fearing The Hairdresser
Let's get this one out of the way first. Yes, trimming your hair seems counterintuitive, but it's really not. We promise! Trims get rid of accruing damage and the split ends that end up screwing you over in the long run. There is no cure for split ends rather than cutting them off, and once you start doing so consistently you'll be on the road to healthier hair in no time.
2. Study The Products You Use
This goes without saying at this point, but ditching the use of modern chemicals (such as sulfates, parabens, and silicones) on your hair will go a long way. These harsh ingredients can build up on your scalp, clog your hair follicles, and sabotage your big hair-growth goals. You can shop our entire natural hair care collection here.
3. Refresh Your Hair Brushing Skills
If you need to brush your hair, do not do it in a rush. Please! Only brush your hair gently when you truly need to, and make sure it’s with a brush that's kind to your hair. Opt for a wooden brush with rounded, soft pins to help prevent any additional breakage. Whether you’re brushing, combing, or detangling, always start from the ends and work your way up to avoid snagging your hair! Shop our collection of wooden brushes and combs here.
4. Eat A Balanced Diet
Ensuring you are eating enough vitamins and minerals can be essential in the pursuit of healthier hair. Some of the best vitamins for hair growth include B vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin E, zinc, biotin and iron. If you are unsure of what vitamins to incorporate to your diet and how, always speak to your doctor or a professional.
5. Massage Your Scalp Regularly
Scalp massages can help hair growth by stimulating and improving the blood circulation within the hair follicles. Scalp massages cause blood vessels to expand under the skin, generating more blood flow. The stimulation stretches out the cells of hair follicles, which causes them to produce thicker hair strands. You can massage your scalp when you brush it daily, or even in the shower! 5 minutes a day will do the trick.
6. Don't Be Afraid Of Hair Oiling
Oiling your hair on a regular basis helps to rehydrate it, soften it, prevent excess hair fall and keep the scalp healthy. All things which will result in more rapid growth. Thanks to all the vitamins and minerals present in natural hair oils, you can nourish the hair from the roots to the ends. Not only that, but these hair oils have the ability to penetrate into the hair cuticle in order to help protect your hair from damage. You can read our full hair oiling guide here!
