Grow it out

Are you like me and trying to grow your hair out? It can be a long and tedious process that requires patience. If you are like me and most women out there, then you know that being patient while we wait for hair to grow is not an easy task. On average, our hair grows 1/4' to  1/2' every month. Many factors play into that, and I thought I would share some tips on how you can speed up the process.

The condition of your scalp says everything about the health of your hair. You want your scalp in optimal condition at all times. Make sure you are brushing your scalp and hair daily to exfoliate and stimulate blood flow. You also can use oils on the scalp to condition the area, such as coconut oil or olive oil. 

Store-purchased products may contain harmful chemicals that can damage your hair and prevent it from growing. Most of these products have a ph value high enough to strip a floor, so imagine what they can do to your hair. Make sure you contact your stylist to stock up on professional hair care that is actually good for your hair and scalp. 

Shampoo your hair no more than two to three times per week. Washing your hair every day is going to dry it out and strip it of the natural moisture it needs to be healthy and grow. If your hair and scalp are too dry, the hair is going to break off and you'll be getting a haircut instead of a longer style.

Your hair has to be maintained even if you are growing it out. Make sure you see your stylist regularly for a small trim to keep the ends at optimal condition. If your ends are dry or split, they will continue all the way up the hair shaft until it breaks. It is true that your hair will grow faster with regular visits to your stylist for a trim. I recommend between six to eight weeks, no longer.

Growing your hair out can be a bit of a pain, but these tips are sure to help make sure it is growing at the fastest pace that it can. While your hair is growing out, make sure to be gentle and give it a bit of a break so it can stay as healthy as possible. Soon enough your hair will be just where you want it - just in time for you to decide it's time for a new hairstyle.
