Unlock Your Hair's Growth Potential


While long hair can be beautiful, achieving it can be a laborious task. The quickest option is to purchase hair extensions. Alternatively, growing your hair naturally is more cost-effective, yet requires significant patience and determination. However, for those seeking to ditch a short cut or sport a waist-skimming ponytail, there are ways to aid the process. Mental preparation is crucial, as hair growth is slow, with half an inch per month being the maximum in optimal conditions. To speed things up, there are 10 tips that can encourage the sluggish hair follicles to get moving.

1. Fall in love with scissors

Stop vilifying the use of scissors for hair trimming. While it may seem counterintuitive, regularly trimming your hair is essential to eliminate damage and split ends that can have long-term negative effects. It is recommended to get a trim every eight weeks, but it doesn't have to be a strict routine appointment. Those with coarse hair textures or who frequently heat-style or color their hair should pay close attention to their ends. It is essential to communicate with your stylist and request a dusting, which involves only cutting off what is necessary. Alternatively, one can try trimming their hair at home using hair scissors and instructional YouTube videos.

2. Review your shampoo bottle

We get it — shampooing feels refreshing, especially if you’ve been sweating it out at the gym. But shampooing too often can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry, brittle, and prone to breakage.

To enhance the process of hair growth, it is important to treat your hair with care even while it is wet and vulnerable in the shower. Opt for a gentle and naturally-based cleanser, and avoid harsh ingredients like SLS, SLES, parabens, and silicones (commonly known as ‘dimethicone’ on labels) which can accumulate on the scalp, obstruct hair follicles and hinder the process of hair growth. Effective but non-stripping formulas like the ones mentioned below should be used instead.

3. Use less shampoo

Over-cleansing can result in a scalp and hair that is stripped of its natural oils, leading to brittle hair that is prone to breakage. This can leave you feeling frustrated when your hair doesn't seem to be growing, even after months.

4. Invest in conditioner

A hair-growth journey presents a great opportunity to indulge in high-quality hair care products such as a nourishing leave-in conditioner, additional moisture in these treatments can help to thicken the hair shaft, thereby enhancing its elasticity and strength over time. As a result, this reduces the likelihood of hair breakage and leads to increased hair length retention for you.

5. Be Gentle When Brushing Wet Hair
Your hair is more susceptible to breakage when it’s wet, so it’s important to be gentle when brushing it. Avoid yanking a brush through tangled hair or aggressively rubbing it with a towel. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb or a brush specifically designed for wet hair and start from the ends, working your way up to the roots.
6. Use Heat Styling Tools Wisely
Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can give you beautiful, salon-worthy hair, but they can also damage your hair if you’re not careful. Make sure to use a heat protectant spray or serum before using heat styling tools and keep the heat setting on the lower side. It’s also a good idea to give your hair a break from heat styling every once in a while and embrace your natural texture.
7. Food play a part
Your hair is made up of protein, so it’s important to make sure you’re getting enough protein in your diet. Foods like eggs, chicken, and fish are great sources of protein. Vitamins and minerals like biotin, vitamin E, and iron are also important for healthy hair growth, so try incorporating foods like spinach, almonds, and sweet potatoes into your diet.
Are you still using a towel to dry your hair? The twisting, tension, and fabric-rubbing can actually hinder hair growth, especially for fragile wet hair. Instead, consider swapping your regular towel for a gentler microfiber hair towel that doesn't involve rubbing, only blotting. If you're a hardcore hair-care enthusiast, experiment with drying your hair using only air.

9. Massage your scalp
If you're looking for a quick way to relax, try giving yourself a scalp massage. Although many people believe that this increases blood flow and promotes hair growth, the real benefits lie in the act of self-care itself.To perform a scalp massage, there are two common techniques: effleurage, which involves circular stroking movements, and petrissage, which involves gentle kneading and lifting of the scalp. Begin at the front of your scalp and use consistent yet gentle pressure as you work your way back. Investing in a scalp massager can help turn this into a special self-care ritual, much like when you use a facial roller.
