Having long, luscious locks like Rapunzel is every woman’s dream, but in real life, there can be quite a few challenges getting in the way of that. Simply knowing how to use hair serum or applying hair masks isn’t enough because a lot more goes into hair growth. In an attempt to grow your hair, you might end up with split ends, frizzy strands, and more. Of course, nobody wants that. So, here are five natural ways to trigger hair growth.
This is where it all begins. A balanced diet is the foundation of healthy and strong hair. No amount of haircare products in the world can benefit your hair the way a healthy, nutritious meal can. In order to grow and heal, your hair needs nourishment as much as any other part of your body. So eat right, minimize junk food consumption, and exercise regularly.
Massaging your scalp can do wonders for hair growth. This is because massaging increases blood circulation which further promotes hair growth. You can use Godrej Professional Acai oil or Nourish Shine Argan Oil for this. However, if you do not wish to apply oil, just do it while shampooing your hair. Take some amount of keratin shampoo and apply it to your scalp. While cleansing, move your fingers in a circular motion to gently massage the scalp and increase circulation. If you’re using a keratin shampoo, make sure to follow it up with the keratin mask. Consider using Godrej Professional’s Keratin Rich Shampoo and Mask.
Handle Wet Hair Gently
How you treat your wet hair will directly impact the speed at which your hair grows. Wet hair is incredibly fragile and can break easily. To minimize damage, use a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair. Also, avoid wrapping it up in a cotton towel as that may increase friction and cause breakage of strands.
Rinse Hair With Cool Water
After applying keratin products to your hair, rinse it with cool water as hot water has the opposite effect. Hot water makes your hair dry and frizzy; cold water, on the other hand, seals the cuticles and strengthens hair follicles.
Limit Heat Styling
Styling your hair is easy and tempting, but if you want your hair to grow then limit it. Too much exposure to heat can lead to deteriorating hair quality. Air drying your hair is always the recommended option as compared to heat styling. However, if you want to minimize impact, use hair care products like a hair protectant serum which will create a protective barrier around your strands.
In addition to these natural tips for hair growth, don’t forget to have a proper hair care routine that will always keep your hair nourished. Using keratin products like keratin shampoo and keratin mask will further strengthen hair. Follow this up with other hair care products like the Godrej Professional shine spray. If your hair is lacking in proteins and feeling damaged, consider a keratin treatment as well.
Remember — when it comes to hair growth, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution but the aforementioned natural tips do work so give them a shot. In the meantime, make sure your hair is clean and hydrated.
