Trying To Grow Out Your Hair? Here’s Six Hair Growth Secrets You Should Know

Everyone wants to have long, healthy, lustrous hair, don’t we? Well, I suppose length is subjective, but we can all agree that we want healthy and shiny hair, right?


On average, out hair grows at about half an inch a month, meaning it grows somewhere around six inches a year. The rate it grows at depends mostly on genetics as well as the condition it’s in – whether it’s healthy or not. And the health of our hair depends on a number of factors, including first and foremost the food that we eat. If our body isn’t getting the nutrients it needs to nourish our hair it’s ultimately going to become dull, prone to breakage and overall unhealthy. And unhealthy hair is, of course, going to grow slower.

So, the first step if you’re on the path to growing out your hair but encountering difficulties it to look at the food you’re consuming. Are you taking in enough protein, biotin, vitamins A, C, D and E, zinc, B vitamins, iron, and essential fatty acids through foods like eggs, lean meat, fish, nuts, avocados, spinach, and berries? If not, tackle that first.


Then, there are also other steps you can take to ensure faster hair growth, like massaging your scalp to stimulate blood flow, using different types of hair masks or oils to both nourish your hair and keep a healthy scalp.


Additional things that affect the health of our hair, and subsequently the rate at which it grows, are whether it’s been damaged by using harsh chemicals and heat, losing its shine from over-washing, or breaking off from a certain hairstyle.


So, other than using oils, massages, hair masks and looking at the food we’re eating, here’s a number of changes you should start making to your hair care routine if you want your hair to grow faster and healthier that might not have crossed your mind.


1. Wash your hair less frequently


Photo credit: Shutterstock


It may seem counterproductive to wash your hair less often if you want them to be healthier, but it’s true. Yes, you should wash it regularly, but that doesn’t mean it has to be done frequently. That will just strip your hair of its natural oils it needs which will cause your hair to dry up and become frizzy and damage-prone. But that doesn’t mean you should wash it too infrequently either as that will just make the oils to build up and clog your hair follicles.


There aren’t really any set rules as to how often you should wash your hair, but if you have hair that’s normal in weight and oiliness, then you could extend the time between washing it to a few days. Just embrace the dry shampoo.


2. Don’t wash it with water that’s too hot


Photo credit: Shutterstock


Yes, you should wash your hair with hot water since it opens up your hair’s cuticles and allows for the shampoo and conditioner to penetrate the hair shaft better. But if you make it too hot, it’s just going to strip away too much of the hair’s moisture and lead it to become dry, frizzy and breakage prone.


Also, rinse it with cold water


Cold water, on the other hand, closes the hair cuticles and so rinsing your hair out with cold water after you’ve shampooed and conditioned it will seal the moisture in and make it less damage prone.


3. Do not use heat


Photo credit: Shutterstock


Heat, along with the harsh chemicals in bleach or hair dye are your hair’s worst enemy. So, while curling your hair with an iron wand will give you bouncy waves in no time, and blow-drying it will give your hair more volume, it’s also going to ruin your hair in the long run. So, opt for air drying whenever possible, and as for curling your hair, there are endless no-heat curling methods you can try.


4. Change your towel


Photo credit: Shutterstock


Towels can be too rough on the hair, especially wet hair, causing it to break and become frizzy. Wrapping the towel around the hair also pulls on the strands and may result in hair loss. So, there are two options you can opt for.


You could invest in a microfiber towel, which will be softer on your hair, reduce the frizz and soak up moisture quicker, or just use something softer, like an old shirt, and gently pat the hair dry.


5. Get a silk pillowcase


Photo credit: Shutterstock


There are a number of reasons why a silk pillowcase is better for your hair than a normal cotton one, starting from the fact that it causes less friction and less breakage – this will stop your hair from thinning. Since we use our pillowcases every night, if it leads to breakage over time, it might be a good idea to switch it up. A silk pillowcase will also prevent from our hair tangling during the night and help keep our hairstyles for longer, so win-win.


6. Lose the ponytail

Something else that may be causing your hair to break is if you keep putting it up in a tight ponytail. While the style is both cute and efficient, the constant pulling it does on your scalp is causing it to become damaged and your hair to fall out. So, if you can’t stand keeping your hair down all the time, try opting for a loose bun or braid. Both of them still look cute while causing less damage to your hair.

Reverse Your Gray Hair To Its Natural Color Without Dye

While many women proudly sport a silver mane, others wait for gray hairs to appear anxiously. So, whether you are in your early 20’s or late 50’s, greying hair will always come as a subtly veiled nightmare which reminds us of how fast the time is passing by.


“Fifty percent of the population has about 50% gray hair at age 50,” says Dr. Anthony Oro, professor of dermatology at Stanford University. This is also called the 50-50-50 rule. Whereas, Dr. Heather Woolery Lloyd, director of ethnic skin care at the University of Miami School of Medicine, says that ‘just like skin, hair changes its texture with age.’


However, there are many other factors which affect the gray on your hair. Lifestyle and stress can be some of the causes.
“Stress won’t cause you to go gray directly,” says Dr. Roopal Kundu, associate professor in dermatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “But stress is implicated in a lot of skin and hair issues.”


However, if you don’t think it’s possible to reverse grey hair, think again. Not, that there is something wrong with having gray hair, it’s just someone loves their natural color, so they want to keep it that way.

5. Pour enough rinse into each section and don’t forget to cover your scalp as well.

Homemade Hair Growth Masks For Every Type Of Hair

Our hair is made up of a protein called keratin that is produced in the hair follicles. A hair follicle produces new hair cells and anchors each hair into the skin. As new hair cells are brought to the surface, old cells are being pushed out at the rate of about six inches a year. So, in case you wonder why your hair does not hurt when you cut them, well it is because you are cutting a string of dead keratin cells.


The amount of hair the average person has on their head varies from one individual to another. Anyway, an average adult has about 100,000 to 150,000 hair strands and loses up to 100 of them a day. However, due to different causes, some people experience the hair loss more than the others. Initially, hair loss was seen as an aging symptom, but in the urban scenario where many lead a hectic lifestyle, it has become a cause for alarm.


There are various causes of hair loss, ranging from vitamin deficiency, hormonal imbalance, underlying health condition, stress, bad nutrition, etc. Consequently, we end up using chemical remedies for quick results despite being aware of its harmful outcome.

However, there are efficient and smart ways to go natural and deal with your hair issue and stimulate your hair growth. Get rid of those expensive, chemical leached hair products, and welcome to natural homemade hair growth masks. There’s nothing healthier than taking parts of nature and using it for your own good.


Hair masks are a deep conditioning or nourishing hair treatment that are friendly with whatever type of hair you have. They contain rich ingredients such as natural oils and lipids, in heavier concentrations than normal conditioners, which supercharge your hair conditioning efforts.

Although, hair masks might not be as Instagrammable as the facial mask counterparts, having the right ingredients will not only help your hair grow, but it can also fortify dry strands, leave parched hair quenched, restore and soften your color-treated hair, etc. And guess what? They can be prepared without having to leave the comfort of your house. All for less than you probably paid for dinner last night.


There are many types of hair and not everyone will find useful the same homemade hair growth masks, so there is a different ballgame altogether.

So, for those who want long, lustrous, and voluminous hair (who doesn’t?), the following homemade hair growth masks are the perfect go-to.

Here’s How To Achieve Beachy Waves With These Hairstyling Tips

When I was a toddler, my mom says that my hair was golden blonde and it was curly. However, one day, mom decided that I needed a haircut and she cut my curly locks quite short. Ever since that day, my hair grew out to be straight and, to be frank with you, quite boring. But, when I think about it, you can fool around with straight hair way more easily than you can with curly hair, so, I will stop complaining. Whenever I feel like I need a change in my look, I always opt for natural waves. However, a long time elapsed before I got the hang of natural waves.


So, if you’ve been wondering how to achieve beautiful beachy waves without having to go to the beach, you’re in the right place.



Curling Iron Technique


One of the easiest and fastest ways of achieving the look is with a curling iron. Before you begin, you should consider the fact that your hair might experience a little damage from the heat, so make sure you use a heat protective primer beforehand. After that, roll each strand of hair around the curling iron. When you’re done, let your hair cool down before brushing it.



Brushing it works too, however, running your fingers through your curls works better.



For a visual presentation of what was said above, head to this video tutorial:

Flat Iron Technique


In case you don’t have a curling iron, you can use your hair straightener! How thick your strand of hair is depends on your choice. Take the section of hair and then slowly turn your flat iron curler outwards or inwards, depending on the type of curls you want to achieve.

Start by doing the bottom hair first and then go upward until you achieve the desired look.


beachy waves tips


As you can notice, curling your hair with a flat iron gives them more texture. However, both techniques are easy to pull off and work every time.



Maintain The Look


Okay, so you got the curls. Now what? Well, now it is time to think about how you will maintain them. Try using a hairspray on it, and the look will last longer if you use some dry shampoo. So, if your hair is a little greasy, try some dry shampoo instead of washing your hair.


 

Hair Masks And Everything You Need To Know About Them

Sometimes your hair just needs some love and a little something extra. Damaged from hair straightening irons, blow-drying, bleaching, perms, highlights, extensions, long time without trimming, over-brushing, over-shampooing, these things all add up. Sometimes, no matter how healthy your hair is, even the changing of the seasons can affect your tresses. So, what is better than hair masks to give your hair the boost of strength and softness it so desperately needs?


Hair masks are a deep conditioning or nourishing hair treatment that are friendly with whatever type of hair you have. They contain rich ingredients such as natural oils and lipids, in heavier concentrations than normal conditioners, which supercharge your hair conditioning efforts.

Why should you use hair masks?


When it comes to the question, ‘What is a hair mask doing for me?’ the answer is, ‘a lot.’ Even though the benefits are countless, we will try to include in the ‘list of benefits’ as many as possible.


Despite washing and conditioning your hair several times a week, a deep nourishing hair mask at least once a week will make a huge difference. So, if you have dry hair, hair masks will moisturize and leave your hair touchably soft, while for damaged locks, hair masks are beneficial to get them back to shape, by giving the boost of strength and softness and leave brittle strands undeniably softer. They tame unruliness and make hair easier to style.


Apart from the dry hair, oily hair is another hair issue which needs to be taken into consideration. Even though the scalp produces healthy oil which makes your hair and scalp moisturized and healthy, sometimes your scalp produces more oil than it’s necessary. As a result of this, oily hair clogs the hair roots and causes excessive hair loss, dandruff, and itchy scalp. So, with the right hair mask, you can control the oils on your scalp and boost your hair growth.
