Long, thick, healthy hair. We all want it, and we all have the potential to achieve it. While everyone’s hair journey is going to be different, there are a few very simple, but very important things you must do if you want to reach your goals. Here are my 5 fast Tips to Grow Long, Thick, Healthy Hair.
#1 Find the right products to speed up your hair growth
Hair growth is a biological process that takes time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t help the process along. Gone are the days where you have to wait months and months to grow a couple inches of hair. Incorporating a high quality hair growth supplement like Hair Accelerator Vitamins, can help you see a noticeable increase in the rate at which your hair grows. Enhanced with Biotin, MSM, and all the amino acids needed for effective protein synthesis – these vitamins are some of the best you can get. Once your hair is growing faster, all you have to do is incorporate healthy hair care techniques, such as the ones listed in #2 – 5 below, to ensure that you retain the length you’ve achieved.
#2 Rely on protective styles, but use them wisely!
Over manipulation, constant tugging/pulling and styling can thin your hair out and interfere with your hair growth as well. Putting your hair in a protective style – styles that allows you to go longer periods of time without manipulating your hair – is a great weapon in the battle for healthier hair. Particular during the cold winter months when dry winds and harsh temps can damage the hair, braiding your hair down or throwing on a wig is a great way to put your hair away and keep it protected. However, as the tip indicates, you must use protective styling wisely! Like the age old saying goes: “too much of a good thing is bad.” Getting super tight braids or twists and wearing them in a ponytail can tug on your delicate perimeter hair, and installing back to back weaves without giving your hair a chance to breathe can thin your hair out or cause damage. Find a skilled stylist that can install your protective styles in a manner that is actually protective for your hair and be sure to care for your hair underneath by incorporating a good hair oil.
#3 Keep your hair moisturized
Moisture is so incredibly important to prevent breakage and achieve soft, shiny healthy hair. Many hair textures are naturally dry, so you have to constant add moisture to the hair and seal it in – especially at the ends. Develop a hair regimen that incorporates moisturizing styling products and the proper oils to seal in the moisture. Check out the informative blog called Battle of the Oils, and learn which oils you should be incorporating into your hair care regimen to retain moisture and to achieve super thick hair. And remember, water is life! Drink plenty of water to facilitate this process from the inside.
#4 Minimize heat
Constant heat usage is a quick way to stunt your hair growth and damage your precious crown. For ladies with naturally straight, color treated or chemically relaxed hair, find hair styles that don’t require the daily use of blow dryers and reduce flat iron usage. For the naturals out there, we all know that shrinkage is the devil, but there are plenty of way to stretch natural hair without heat. From overnight stretching methods to threading, there are plenty of ways you can stretch your hair
For those times where you can’t avoid heat, do not underestimate the importance of using a heat protectant. If you get your hair done professionally, make sure your hairstylist is using a high quality protectant or invest in your own and bring it with you to styling appointments!
#5 Deep condition
Last but certainly not least, deep condition your hair often – once a week if possible. This tip is crucial. Deep conditioning your hair not only makes it softer and more manageable, but it will give your hair a heavy dose of moisture to support healthy hair and length retention.
