Taking Hair Supplements – Hair Supplements such as Biotin (Also known as Vitamin H) and Vitamin E tablets are known to promote hair growth. For some people, it works however for others it doesn’t do anything. For those who it works for they take it religiously. The Biotin improves the keratin structure of the hair thus allowing the hair to be thicker and fuller. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that repairs the keratin structure of the hair shaft or follicles. Thus, it repairs the damage done and encourages healthy hair follicles so growth can happen.
Massage your scalp with a brush – Scalp massages help to stimulate the hair cells within your scalp to promote hair growth. You need to use a wire bristle brush because it picks up the oils on your scalp and transfers it to other places on your hair. Then, brush the scalp within a circular or a c motion. You do not need to brush the hair length just the scalp only. You can do this at nights before bed for five minutes. As well as in the morning just before you style your hair for school or work. You can pick this brush at any Sally’s Beauty Supply Store, Amazon, or any beauty store.
Eat vegetables and fruits – Eating healthy contributes to the overall health of your body as well as your hair. Vegetables and fruits are rich in vitamins and antioxidants that are good for our hair. Enjoy foods reach in protein such as salmon. Or fatty acids such as avocados, pumpkin seeds, nuts. Also, sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe with loads of vitamins. These foods benefit the protein structure of the hair to keep it strong to prevent damage, provide fatty acids to the hair strands for moisturisation as well as antioxidants that nourish and adds shine to the hair shaft.
Use natural products – You want to use all products with natural ingredients such as virgin oils, apple cider vinegar as well as aloe vera juice and gel. The all natural ingredients will benefit the hair follicles, scalp and shaft. Chemically altered or modified products or ingreidnets will not add shine, luster, body, or growth to the hair because it is not good for our hair. Buying products with these ingredients will promote your hair growth.
Wash your hair less – The less you wash your hair is the less you should blow it out in order to dry it. As well as, some theories say that dirty hair grows faster because the natural oils are still on the scalp stimulating the hair follicles. Lastly, shampoo tends to strip away these oils that promote growth if you do it often.
Protect your hair from the chlorine and salt water – It is summer time so it is hotter than usual. Chlorine will strip your hair of its oils hence it is not good for you. Wetting your hair before going in or apply conditioner it will allow less chlorine to go into the hair.
Avoid using heat – Heat breaks down the protein structure of your hair which causes damage to the hair shaft.

Try going a month without using heat by air drying and you shall see the difference in the look and feel of your hair.
