On average, hair grows from 1 to 1.5 cm in a month. However, everything depends on the condition of your hair. Would you like to make the results even better? Put our advice into practice.
Whether short or long, blonde, red, brown or black, straight, curly or perhaps wavy, up or down. We must admit that hair has been, is and always will be one of the greatest attributes of a woman. Many women attach great importance to their hair and regularly groom and style it. Hair also attracts the attention of men. We tell you what you should do for long, beautiful and well-groomed hair
Be aware that the condition of your skin, hair and nails is greatly influenced by diet, lifestyle and, of course, genetics. While the latter are difficult to combat, you do have an impact on what you eat and what activities you engage in.
A well-balanced diet prevents hair loss and, above all, strengthens the hair from the inside so that it grows healthy and strong. So what should be on your menu? Certainly products rich in fatty acids with a nutritional effect, in iron, protein and B vitamins. It is therefore good to eat oily fish, chia seeds, spinach, broccoli, berries, cocoa, quinoa and pumpkin seeds, nuts and almonds, as well as wholemeal bread, groats, legumes and good quality dairy and poultry.
You can also opt to drink yeast. They have a lot of vitamins and minerals in them that are beneficial for the condition of your hair.
Your diet alone is often not enough to provide your hair with all the nutrients it needs. It is advisable to supplement your diet with suitable supplements, which will make up for these deficiencies. However, you will have to wait a little longer for the effects. You will notice the first positive changes after about a month of regular use.
The supplements containing field horsetail, nettle or linseed work well. There is also silicon and iron, zinc and vitamin B7, i.e. biotin.
Take Care of Your Scalp
We often forget or do not even realise that scalp care is very important especially if we want to grow hair fast. Without it, your hair will be neither healthy nor pretty. It’s hard to get great results if your hair roots are weak and your skin is dry.
First, start with a scrub and massage to thoroughly cleanse the entire scalp and stimulate circulation. Use the massage every time you wash your hair and the scrub once a week. In addition, do not forget about the herbal rubs, which work perfectly – without alcohol, which irritates and dries the skin and weakens the roots.
The scalp should be moisturized, so better avoid shampoos with silicones, which, like alcohol, dry out the scalp and weaken the hair. Use conditioners regularly and apply an oil or mask every now and then.
Be gentle on your hair
Not only are products important for hair health and hair growth, but so is the process of washing and handling your hair day and night. Hair is constantly exposed to the elements, the heat of the hair dryer or straightener, and mechanical damage, tugging, bunching, etc.
If you want your hair to grow healthy and fast, you should handle it really gently. For starters, don’t use hot water to wash your hair, but warm water, finally rinsing it with cold water to close the scales. Then, use a towel or a cotton turban to wring out any excess water – never rub your hair or scalp.
Let your strands dry naturally or, if that’s not possible, apply a heat protectant and set your hair dryer to cool. It is a crime to go to bed with wet hair. Never go outside without drying your hair. In addition, you should still keep your hair under a hat, a hood or at least a scarf in winter.
It is best not to touch your hair too often while growing your hair and to sleep with it tied up in a loose braid or bun. This will prevent your hair from rubbing against your bedding and causing breakage.
Choose the Best Brush
Brushing is very important to stimulate your circulation and to cleanse your scalp and hair of impurities. It is important to use the right brush or comb for your hair type and condition. The most important thing is that they do not tear the hair. Brushes available on the market include Tangle Teezer, boar bristle and wooden brushes. When it comes to combs, those with widely spaced teeth work well.
A “regular brush”, i.e. a plastic brush with teeth ending in balls, is definitely suitable for the trash. Why? First of all, it is made of poor quality plastic, which damages hair, breaking it. Plus, it’s hard to comb through strands, which means you start tugging and pulling at them.
What about the ends – should I cut them or not?
The eternal question remains – should you trim your ends regularly or stay away from your hairdresser’s scissors? The answer is to trim them. Dry, split and damaged ends don’t go away by themselves. You need to take care of your ends at all times, treat them with special oils, serums and be careful with straighteners and curling irons
