Natural Hair Growth Tips: Why Won't My Hair Grow Past A Certain Length?
Are you wondering why your hair won’t grow past a certain length? Well let’s take a look at your hair care regimen. Below, I have provided with a checklist for natural hair growth tips. Now It’s completely understandable if you miss a few of these, get a little lazy or have not yet done one of any of these steps. Although these tips can aid in your natural hair growth, consistency is key and DNA can also play a role in your hair growth, texture and curl pattern!
Natural Hair Growth Tips
Spraying your hair with water is one of the most important practices! Add to your spray bottle to enhance hair growth benefits for example: Rose Water, Aloe Vera Juice, Peppermint essential oil, and Rosemary essential oil
Deep Condition for 30-45 minutes after your shampoo. Sitting under a hooded dryer or plastic cap will do just fine.
Pre Poo, although not necessary, but if it works for you then continue. It can help with SSK (Single strand knots) and the detangling process.
Hot oil treatments, should be done throughout the year. Especially during the winter when the environment changes frequently.
Trims - pay attention to your hair because it will let you know when it’s time for a trim. Do you get split ends when you do a two strand twist ? Or that curl doesn't quite curl and the end? It might be a good idea to get a trim. You can either have professional do the trim or you can do the trim yourself. It’s up to you and your comfort level.
Massaging the scalp - This can encourage blood circulation and promote healthy hair regrowth and natural hair growth.
Drinking a lot of water is very important and it should be the first thing that you put in your body and the last thing at night before bed.
Taking multivitamins, weather it be in pill form or liquid form. Consult your family physician before taking any multivitamin. It’s good idea to find the right method and discuss any changes with your healthcare provider.
Diet - just like the saying goes, “ Garbage in, garbage out.” Make sure you are balancing your habits out with some leafy greens and exercise.
Detangle your hair - Use the finger method or if you find that that just won’t do the trick, try using conditioner like Aussie Moist line which provides great slip and use a wide tooth comb to help with the detangling method. Never detangle or manipulate on dry hair. This will cause breakage and split ends!!!!!
Hair growth oils - Add oils that aid in hair growth like Olive Oil, Jamaican Black Caster Oil, Jojoba Oil, Peppermint Oil, Rosemary Oil
Cleansing Shampoo - Please do your scalp a favor and make it happy! A happy scalp will give you healthy hair growth and retention. Find a light moisturizing shampoo that will not strip all of the oils from your hair. I am currently using Texture ID cleansing shampoo.
Good protective practices for bedtime - Tying up your hair or wrapping it in a slick scarf or bonnet, and or pillow case.
