Do you like your hair but wish it would grow faster? You are not alone. Lots of ladies feel the exact same way. So is there really a way to make your tresses grow faster? Here are some tips to help you get the length you want:
- Remember your locks won’t grow overnight
Unless you are a human Chia Pet, gaining new hair length takes time. Experts say your hair typically grows a half inch a month. This is pending your hair is healthy and doesn’t have a lot of split ends.
- Do a cold-water rinse at the end of each shower.
Ugh, this isn’t so fun but it works. Experts say that cold water really does help to grow hair and keep long hair healthy for longer. Here’s how it works, cold water lays down the outer layer of hair more smoothly, which helps prevent moisture loss, snags and heat damage — you only need to do it for a few seconds, but this one extra step over time can make a huge difference.
- Apply an oil or mask treatment weekly.
If your hair is growing to your shoulder or beyond, it needs more TLC (Tender Loving Care), than short hair. Use: Olea E Hair Mask, this mask is natural, easy and very effective, especially for dyed and damaged hair. The nourishing formula gives your hair deep moisture and balance the PH of your hair which keeps the hair cuticle closed, making them shimmery and smooth. Our Olea hair mask increase the quality of your dry and damaged hair, creating the beautiful, soft, silky look you desire. Enjoy the natural relaxation treatment of our Olea hair mask for a long lasting gratifying result including shinier and stronger hair.
- Don’t shampoo every time you shower.
I swear it’s an urban myth that you have to shampoo and condition your hair at the same time. Here’s why you shouldn’t shampoo as much as you are. The purpose of shampoo is to wash away dirt, product build up, etc from the scalp. But, if you do it too much you can rob your scalp of essential oils that help keep your tresses healthy. So if you must shampoo, experts say to only lather at your scalp and then let the suds slide down your locks, it’s better for your hair this way.
- On the other hand use conditioner every time you shampoo.
Say what? Conditioner helps replace lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft. It seals in the cuticle to help prevent more damage so you can get your hair to grow longer and look healthier. Use: Olea Shampoo. This shampoo is rich in vitamins A, E and antioxidants. It helps revitalize your hair from breakage, splitting and frizz. Our unique formula with natural olive oil bring moisture back to your hair, leaving it healthy and shiny.
- Never, ever wrap your hair in a massive towel again.
What could be so bad about putting hair in your super soft bath towel? A lot. It can cause massave breakage. Who knew? It makes sense if you think about it. Your hair gets caught in all the woven fibers and since most women almost always wrap it too tight around their face, all those tiny, fragile strands around your face are more prone to break. Pro tip-Opt for the super-thin and soft microfiber hair towels instead (like Aquis microfiber hair towel), which are totally OK to wrap into a turban.
- Brush your hair like Marcia Brady
Marcia always had her big bristle brush and was gently brushing her locks in the Brady Bunch. Fight the temptation to constantly brush your hair as it can cause breakage. Pro-tip- When you detangle wet hair, be sure to start from the bottom and work your way up — we often instinctually go from the scalp down but that just brings small tangles into one large knot and can cause you to lose a lot of hair. Once your hair is dry, try using the BRUSH N’GO hair straightener. This brush helps comb AND straighten hair. You’ll get minimal damage and amazing looking locks.
- Don’t forget to make time for a regular trim
Although getting regular trims to snip splits won’t make your hair actually grow faster, it will keep tips looking healthy and prevent splits from working their way up strands, requiring you to chop hair off more often. Experts advise to go to the salon sooner rather than later. If you wait so long that splits are causing your hair to break off high up on the strand, your hair will actually be shorter than if you get consistent trims. Tip-Ask your stylist to take off around an eighth of an inch off every 10 to 12 weeks to prevent extreme split ends before they start.
- Don’t forget to change your ponytail holders
It’s an easy move that can help maintain the integrity of your strands wherever you tend to secure your ponytail all the time, which means they’ll continue to grow out strong and damage-free.
