Getting Rapunzel-like strands is no easy feat but achieving the hair of your dreams doesn’t have to feel so far-fetched. And while there isn’t a secret and magical ingredient or method that can actually make your hair grow faster from the root. You can follow simple tips and tricks to grow healthier, stronger hair that will reduce breakage at the ends and in-turn promote length.
Do a Scalp Massage to Stimulate Growth
A simple way to stimulate hair growth at home is to give yourself a scalp massage. This will increase blood flow to your scalp, enhance the strength of your roots, and help nutrients get to your follicle faster.
Try an Egg Yolk Mask to Prevent Breakage
Eggs contain lecithin and protein, which strengthen, nourish, and heal your strands. Their high sulfur content even helps treat dandruff.
To make the mask, mix two eggs with two tablespoons of olive oil. Apply the mask directly to dry, brushed hair, and leave it on for up to 30 minutes. Then, shampoo and condition as usual.
Rinse with cold water
Just like hot water can cause dryness on your skin, it can be damaging for your hair too. Rinsing with cool water will help close up the cuticle and strengthen hair follicles pre-styling.
Eat healthy fats
Healthy fats are essential to hair health since our bodies can’t produce omega-3 fatty acids on their own. They nourish hair follicles to give your air that shiny and lustrous glow.
Try a cinnamon mask
Due to its anti-microbial properties, it poses hair benefits too, in the form of stimulating blood circulation and nourishing strands. Mix equal parts of cinnamon and coconut oil and apply to your hair, focusing on the roots. Let it do it sit for 45 minutes before rinsing.
Keratin-based products can strengthen the hair and prevent future breakage from occurring. Protective in nature, keratin-based products douses your hair in essential oils and nutrients it needs, making way for healthy strands to grow.
