Five Tips Help Hair Grow Faster + Healthier

After my disastrous hair cut a few weeks ago, which you can read about here,  I have been focused on helping my hair grow faster and healthier.  A few years ago, my hair was very damaged on the ends and was not growing, so I experimented with different ways to make it healthier and grow faster.  The changes I made were noticeable and I went over a year without getting my hair cut - and my hair was the healthiest it had been in years.  So, here are the things I did...

1.  Wash Hair Less
I used to be someone that washed my hair every day, and on most days, two times a day.  I cut back  washing my hair to every other day, and sometimes every third day.

2. Scalp Stimulating Shampoo and Conditioner
I invested in this shampoo and conditioner.  It "deep cleans and stimulates the scalp to nourish and rejuvenate the hair follicles".   I can honestly say it really did what it said.  I only use it once a week.  And, sometimes I only use it every other week.  But, it has really helped.  I follow the directions to leave it on - and allow it to work.  So, allow extra time to wash your hair when you use it.  I should mention that this shampoo/conditioner does not have any pretty perfume smells, but it works.

3. Coconut Oil
When I was really struggling with split ends, I used coconut oil on my hair.  Once a week, I would put coconut oil on the ends of my hair (where the split ends were).  I would leave it on for an hour, and then wash it out.  

4.  Less Heat
I stopped using my flat iron, and started to round brush my hair dry instead.  I think this made a big difference.  Between less heat damage, and the distribution of oils by brushing my hair - it was a game changer.  One thing, heat even from the hair dryer can cause damage, so I always use a heat protectant.  This one is my favorite.  It smells like the beach. 

5.  Length Strengthening Shampoo & Conditioner
This shampoo and conditioner is new to my routine, and so far I love it!  The smell is amazing and it stays with my hair all day and even to the next day.  Plus, it leaves my hair silky smooth!  It is a bit of an investment, but as I mentioned earlier, I only use it once a week, so it will last a long time.  I should mention that I rotate shampoo/conditioners.  I use a different one each time I wash my hair. I rotate through about four different shampoo/conditioners - something that I also think has made a difference.
