5 All-Natural Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Longer
To be honest, we are tired of “The grass is greener on the other side” or “You always want what you can’t have.” It’s no secret that many of us find confidence in how our hair looks. If you’re having a bad hair day, it can be difficult to feel good about yourself even if your outfit is on point. Breakage, dull hair, or frizziness can all contribute to a less-than-ideal hair day, especially if you’re one of many women (or men) who are trying to grow your hair longer. We are big on the grass growing where you water it, so we have a few tips for you on how to better “water” your hair, NATURALLY. If you’re trying to achieve long, luxurious locks, it’s best to avoid synthetic products that coat your hair and prevent it from becoming as strong and healthy.
Rinse with Cool Water
As with your skin, hot water can also cause dryness and be very damaging to your mane. By rinsing with cool water, you will help close up the cuticle and strengthen hair follicles pre-styling. Lukewarm water can also be affective if the cold proves to be too much.
Use Essential Oils
Not only do essential oils smell good, but they also help hair growth. One study found that a daily doses of pumpkin seed oil in capsule form resulted in an increase in male hair growth. Other studies have also shown that other essential oils such rosemary and lavender (all available on Wellth) are just as effective at restoring hair growth.
Massage Your Scalp
A great way to stimulate hair growth is to give yourself a scalp massage. Doing this will increase the blood flow to your scalp which enhances the strength of your roots. Now, while you may do this with dry hair, adding a nutrient-rich oil completely doubles the benefits.
Don’t Over Shampoo Your Hair
Because of the cleanser that strips hair of its natural oils, an overuse of shampoo can lead to dry and brittle locks of hair, depending on hair type. Hair types that are thicker and courser are able to get away without washing their hair for a couple of days, however thinner hair types have been known to feel as if their hair is greasy after just one day. Because of this, a dry shampoo can work miracles in soaking up a bunch of excess grease while you wait for longer strands.
Castor oil has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which help combat infections that prevent your hair from growing. It’s also full of omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and other nutrients that can penetrate your parched strands and seal your hair shaft to retain moisture. It may also be used for hot oil treatment by massaging the oil into your roots which helps your scalp drink up all of the nutrients and help promote hair growth.
With all these natural remedies, there is no reason for your hair to look anything less than amazing. Wellth highly encourages you to take advantage of all of these remedies and what we offer. After all, you owe it to yourself to look your best.
