If you dream of having mermaid hair try these tips for fast results

Most Popular

1. Address your diet 

Diet is very important for hair growth; you need to be eating sufficient levels of iron, B vitamins, zinc and protein. For an easy-win, add the superfood spirulina to you smoothies, it's a complete protein rich in chlorophyll which helps our hair to grow. As well as greens like kale and iron, this blue-green algae is high in iron (a very important mineral given that the deficiency condition, anemia, can be a major cause of hair loss).

2. Stop clogging your follicles

Dirt, oils and product build-up can clog your follicles, hindering healthy hair growth. To avoid this, try to give your hair a rest from overloading the root area with styling products – dry shampoo and volumising powders are common culprits.

3. Exfoliate your scalp

If your scalps is the gateway to healthy hair, it makes sense that exfoliating it helps promote hair growth. Use a detoxifying shampoo like Aveda Invati Exfoliating Shampoo, once a week to thoroughly cleanse and remove excess sebum from follicles – as well as the product build-up mentioned above.4. Get a caffeine hit 

Most Popular

Caffeine has been found to stimulate the hair shaft by blocking the effects of DHT, a chemical known to damage hair follicles and according to German scientists at the University of Lübeck, it can speed up hair growth by 25%. Unfortunately drinking it won't help. 

5. Massage your scalp

Massage stimulates blood circulation, supporting the tiny blood vessels that feed the hair follicles. Gentle pulling of the hair (so you feel tension, NOT pain) and doing a rhythmic tapping technique are two massage methods to try yourself. Alternatively book in for a professional Indian head massage – hey, stress-relief can help your hair grow too!

6. Do less

Washing, styling and chemical colouring, that is. Daily shampooing can compromise the scalp's natural essential oils that stimulate growth, while excessive heat-styling, backcombing, brushing and chemically processing the hair can leave it brittle, appearing to shorten the length from the bottom-up when it breaks.Loosen tight hairbands. 

Another common cause of breakage is the humble hairband. Tight elastics, worn repetitively in the same place cause wear and tear on the hair which is not what you want when you're growing it. The wrong band can snag and damage strands, so pick the right type and keep them loose. Trimming it regularly and managing damage you'll have to cut off less hair in the long run, so indirectly you're speeding things up! 

Via.
