Growing hair sometimes can be a real problem. Many women have a particular hair length limit, which means that their hair can grow no longer than 50 or 60 cm, for example. How can you grow your hair up to 25 cm a year? Check out this article and use our tips in order to become a real Rapunzel!
1. Don't wash your hair every day
By using shampoo, we wash away not only excessive oil and styling products but also sebum, which moisturizes and protects the skin and hair. Therefore, due to frequent hair washes, the hair loses its natural shine, becomes weaker and more vulnerable to aggressive external factors.
2. Use sulfate-free shampoos
The shampoo shouldn’t contain SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate). Instead of sulfates, which make the foam, the sulfate-free shampoo contains natural ingredients. That is why it cleans more gently than the regular one and doesn’t wash away too much sebum. However, sulfate-free shampoos have a drawback. They don't foam well. Don’t worry, after a few applications, you will get used to it.
3. Don't go to bed with wet hair
Never wash your hair before going to bed if you know that you won't have the time and energy to dry it. Sleeping with wet hair is a disaster. Firstly, wet hair will be rubbing against the pillow all night long. It will damage your wet hair ends. Secondly, in the morning you will wake up with messy hair sticking out in different directions.
4. Visit the hairstylist regularly
The wish to keep every millimeter of the hair is understandable. However, still, regularly visit the hairstylist. No matter how you take care of your hair, over time, it damages in one way or another: splits, breaks off, and thus you lose hair length. In general, any hairstyle will be ruined by lifeless, unkempt hair ends. Hairstylists recommend cutting your hair at least once every three months.
5. Eat more fish, fruits, and vegetables
Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel, or trout will benefit your hair. These foods are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. Besides, eat more fruits and vegetables that contain iron, for example, apples, cabbage, pumpkin. Of course, drink plenty of water so that dehydration doesn't lead to dry and brittle hair.
