How To Grow Out Short Hair
Tip #1: Keep A Steady Routine
I think we all know how easy it is to ignore routines and forget to do things we really should keep up with. BUT, when it comes to our hair, consistency is key. Making sure you have all hair products and tools in a convenient place can make all the difference in how you keep up with your hair-growing journey.
Also, doing any routine twice a day is ideal, but a hair growing routine will be more effective when done at night. Products we use either on our skin or hair penetrate more effectively overnight when we are rested. Serums, treatments, and masks are all ideal to do at night when you are looking to see results.
Tip #2: Use Natural Products
We owe a big thank you to mother nature for the essential oils and natural products that are so good for our hair, skin, and body. Some people think that they need to buy expensive hair growth treatments or vitamins in order to see real results, but that is not true at all.
That being said, one of the most effective things you could do to grow out your hair is to create a DIY hair growth mask using natural oils. Oils for hair growth such as castor oil, peppermint, and rosemary oil can all be combined to create a hair growth mask. Another popular mixture is aloe, coconut, oil, and raw honey combined to create a serum for hair growth. These masks are two of many combinations that can be made to create the most effective DIY hair growths masks.
Tip #3: Wear Protective Styles
Hair breakage from neglect, split ends, and heat damage are all culprits of stunted hair growth. That’s why it is especially important that we are protecting our hair to give it a chance to grow. Protective styles including braids, clip in extensions, and, the most effective, wearing a wig. Maintaining a consistent routine while wearing protective styles will allow your hair to not only grow, but to maintain its health and strength. Pro tip: Use your favorite deep conditioning mask on your hair under your wig for extra hair rejuvenation throughout the day!
Sometimes life will throw things at us that can get us off balance with our maintenance schedule. That’s why it is so important to stay as focused and consistent as possible especially when it comes to our hair. Hopefully with these hair health tips you can organize yourself to have a daily routine giving your hair some TLC so it will grow long and strong.
