If you’ve been trying to grow your hair out for years, you might notice that your hair “stops” growing at a certain point. Depending on how damaged your hair is from years of heat and chemical damage, your hair may naturally break as it becomes longer and weaker. If you have been trying to grow out your hair longer, here are some ideas that can get you those longer locks!
Try A Weekly Hair Mask
Hair masks are able to nourish your hair in deeper layers than your conditioner can. By keeping hair moisturized, it’s less prone to drying out and breaking, so you’ll be able to grow hair long and keep it long. To tackle the build-up that can occur from all this conditioning, try the Keranique Micro-Exfoliating Follicle Revitalizing Mask, which clarifies hair follicles while deep conditioning so hair stays at a healthy balance.
Condition Every Day, Shampoo Every Other
You’ve probably heard the advice that you shouldn’t shampoo your hair everyday because it strips the hair shafts of their natural oil. However, your hair loses moisture every time it gets wet, especially if you shower in hot water (as most of us do!). For this reason, if your hair gets wet in the shower, make sure to apply conditioner to the ends of your hair. If you condition the scalp on these no-poo days, you’ll find your hair feeling too oily.
To grow hair longer, avoid breakage by lowering the heat on styling tools, or try to avoid using them too often. These tools can damage hair over time, especially when they’re able to reach temperatures of 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Another way to help hair stay healthy is rinsing it with cold water after showering. Cold water helps seal the hair cuticle, which can prevent frizz to make hair stronger.
Massage Your Scalp
A healthy scalp has good circulation. To improve blood flow to the scalp, try massaging your head more often than just when you shampoo. You can also do this with a head massager or have someone else massage your scalp for you (with a little persuasion!).
The only FDA approved way to grow your hair is by using an ingredient called Minoxidil. Minoxidil is a vasodilator that actively grows your hair by nourishing your hair follicle and sustaining the Anagen stage of the hair growth cycle. Keranique’s Hair Regrowth Treatment contains 2% minoxidil to safely encourage hair growth for quicker results than you would see by only following the steps listed above.
