Having long, and beautiful hair is what most women wish for, unless you are the pixie cut type. Maintaining your hair and making sure it looks perfect can be tricky, especially considering our erratic lifestyle, pollution and bad food habits. But the dream of having amazing hair isn’t impossible to achieve, you just need to know the right things to do and practice them with dedication. Just follow these simple hair growth beauty tips for hair, and you’ll be able to sport locks that even Rapunzel would have envied.
Trim Hair Every 6-8 Weeks
Trim your hair regularly. Damaged ends are your hair’s worst enemy. Monthly hair trims help get rid of split-ends and help you avoid hair fall. Remember split-ends mess up not just your hair’s length but also affect the shine, volume, and smoothness of your hair. Always remember, a little trim on a regular basis, is a great tip that will naturally help hair growth.
Treat it with Hair Mask
Hair that is more than shoulder-length can be several years old (yes, we are talking about the lower part of your hair length). So, bear in mind that it needs more TLC than what a normal conditioner might offer. Instead, a good hair mask can provide the right kind of pampering to your hair.
Apply a hair mask every two weeks to condition and nourish the hair extensively. Frisk two egg whites with a little bit of lemon juice and apply it on your hair. Alternately, a combination of warm olive oil, cinnamon and honey can work well as a hair mask. Apply it to damp hair, leave it on for 10 minutes, then shampoo and condition as usual.
Hair Scalp therapy
Do not ignore the scalp as it needs as much care as your hair. It is important to keep the hair roots as dirt, oil, and dead cells can accumulate on the scalp affecting hair growth. Gently massage the scalp with your fingers while you shampoo to get the dirt out. For added mositurisation, try applying fresh Aloe Vera gel on the scalp at least once a week leaving it for 30 minutes before washing it of
Avoid harsh chemicals
We cannot emphasize it enough–say NO to harsh chemical treatments and products that can seriously mess with your hair. Go natural as far and as much as possible. When it comes to chemicals, less is more-so, avoid using heavily scented shampoos and even conditioners as much as you can. The lesser the amount of product you apply, the longer and better you hair will stay.
Air dry your hair
We are so used to wrapping our hair in turbans after wash. This can cause lots of hair breakage and hair fall. It’s better to let hair dry naturally after gently wiping and patting with a soft towel.
This can be done by increasing your intake of foods like dairy, fish, pulses, nuts, eggs, lean meat and soya. Eat foods that promote hair growth.
Take care while brushing
How you brush your hair is also extremely important as rough and constant brushing can cause physical damage to your hair. Be especially careful when you detangle wet hair, as maximum damage and hair loss can happen then.
