Many of us have dreamed of long and silky hair. But making your hair grow is definitely a test of patience: the process can seem slow and endless and much more during the winter when your hair is more dry, damaged by the cold weather and receives little natural light.
The first thing that you should take into consideration is that healthy hair will grow faster. So if you want to make your hair grow faster, you first need to take care of them by the following actions:
🔸Add biotin to your hair products
Biotin is a B vitamin that helps improve the function of the keratin, the substance that promotes hair growth. You can take biotin via a supplement, add it to your hair care products or simply by using hair care shampoo and conditioner containing biotin. It will stimulate the scalp, encourage hair growth and strengthen hair strands.
🔸Don’t wash your hair too much
If you shampooing your hair too much, you will quit all the essential natural oils that keep your hair soft and smooth. When you wash your hair, try to lather only at the roots and wash the ends without scrubbing. While you are washing your hair, you can massage your scalp during a few minutes to increase circulation which can stimulate growth.
🔸If you don’t use conditioner yet, then try it!
We recommend not to skip the conditioner! Don’t apply the conditioner on the roots, just focus on the hair below your ears. You can also apply weekly a moisturizing mask to hydrate deeply your hair.
🔸Eat food with omega-3s
Did you know that Omega-3s is especially good for your hair? It will keep your hair strong, shiny and will accelerate growth. You can find Omega-3s by eating flax seeds, chia seeds, fish, walnuts or basil. A study demonstrated that good fats may protect your hair against hair loss.
🔸Avoid styling with heat
To make your hair grow, you need to keep your hair as healthy as possible. Which means to avoid using the heat in order to dry or to curl your hair. We recommend also avoiding some treatments like bleaching which could damage your hair.
🔸Cut your hair
We know it seems to make no sense but cutting your hair will stimulate growth. No need to cut a lot, you can just cut 1 centimeter at least every month and you will see results!
