How to grow your hair faster

For as long as I can remember, I have almost always desired to grow my hair faster. Over the years, I have read various articles and tried all types of hair products that promised to grow my hair fast. Many of them did not do much. I have come to realise that like many things, it is more about the practice than the products. In other words, it is how I care for my hair that grows my hair and not really the products I use. Since the light bulb moment, I have taken care of my hair in many different ways and I have discovered which methods work best for my hair. I also care for my daughter’s hair using the same methods.

How to grow your hair faster

Here are some of the methods that have worked perfectly for my hair over the years –

Tip 1 – Go natural

I started keeping my hair natural some years ago and it is the best thing I have ever done for my hair. Chemicals were doing dangerous things to my scalp and my hair was so weak. I didn’t go down the big chop route so it was a slow journey back to the roots but no regrets. I love how healthy and thick my hair is now.

Tip 2 – No heat or artificial products

I let my hair air-dry when I wash it. No dryers on my hair. If you must use a dryer, get one with a cold setting. Heat damages the hair. Also, I use only natural hair products. Nothing artificial touches my hair. I like to use essential oils and other carrier oils. They work great for my hair type. If you have a dry scalp like mine, it is very important you keep your scalp moisturised every day. I usually have my oils and water mixed up and ready to use in a spray bottle.

Tip 3 – Sleep with a silk bonnet

It is important you take care of your hair while you sleep. I always sleep with a silk scarf and bonnet every night. That way my hair stays protected all through the night and neat as well.

Tip 4 – Have on protective styles

It is very important for us to care for our hair by wearing more protective styles. I always have my hair in a braid or 2 at the minimum. It is easier to care for your hair when you have on a protective style as well.

  1. As you say there are so many so called miracle products on the market that do nothing. It is really getting back to basics, as you say.

    We have very different types of hair, ofcourse. For me regularly trims, six weeks max, inbetween are really important.

    So many people think that your are stopping your hair growth with regular trims when quite the opposite is true. It keeps it healthy and in optimum condition having regular trims.

    You don’t have to have loads off with regular trims. It keeps the split ends etc at bay which can stop your hair growing.

    I stick to my salon shampoo, conditioner and products which are far superior to shop products. They cost more but last longer.anf healthier. I use Joico products.

    I have a major luxury hairdryer wise; I have the Dyson hairdryer which has various tempatures on. You can mix hot and cold together. I do towel wrap my hair though so so i don’t have to use the dryer for long.

    I only wash my hair twice a week, three times on an off occasion.

    Being a Leo my mane is my pride and joy. Funnily enough I’m responding to your blog post whilst I’m I’m sat in the hairdressers having my colours done

    • Ah, what a lovely coincidence me writing a hair post at the same time you were having your hair done. I hope you like it. Thanks for reading and commenting.
