Take mustard oil baths
Like castor oil, vegetable mustard oil is known to stimulate hair growth. With the difference that its texture makes it much easier to apply compared to castor oil. In addition, the results of its effectiveness are less predictable. Taken from the seeds of black mustard, the oil of the same name contains everything you need to cover hair and stimulate growth (beta-carotene, zinc, omega-3, vitamins A and E).
To make a bath with mustard oil, it is very simple. Warm a few drops of mustard oil between your hands and perform a capillary massage of the fingertips. Leave it on for 30 minutes or overnight if possible. Then continue using your usual shampoo.
Wash your hair with shikakai powder
Shikakai powder is a powder that comes from a fruit native to India called “Acacia Concina”, Used in Ayurvedic medicine. It is particularly known for its cleansing and stimulating properties. Shikakai powder can completely replace shampoo. Gently cleanses, stimulates growth and gives volume to the hair mass. For example, you can use it with every other shampoo to distribute the washing area.
To use shikakai powder, it must be mixed with water. Obviously, the amount needed to prepare will vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair. For medium-length hair, mix three heaped tablespoons of powder with the same amount of water and blend to form a paste. Add a little powder if the lotion is too liquid.
Note: Avoid using iron utensils, they tend to interfere with the action of the ayurvedic powders.
Put your foot on the brush
A brush, especially a straightener, is one of the staunch enemies of hair growth. The heat causes a thermal shock to the fibers which come out damaged and weak. Lengths break and fall apart, giving you the impression that your hair isn’t growing. It grows but breaks in length…
If you’re looking to boost your hair growth and are addicted to brushing, we’re sorry to tell you that you’ll have to slow down by limiting straightening to once a week. Additionally, it is highly recommended to use a heat protectant cream prior to blow drying to reduce breakage.
Trim the ends of your hair regularly
Yes, in order for your hair to grow permanently, it is necessary to cut it regularly! This may seem contradictory but it is not much. To boost your hair growth, you can work on the scalp but you should also make sure that your lengths stay healthy. Otherwise, it is guaranteed to break! And all the growth you gained above, you will lose below! Moreover, to go back to the previous point, the smoother you are, the more you will have to cut!
There is no special rule for cutting tips. When you find that your ends are wearing out or “swinging” excessively, it’s time to trim the ends. For example, you can choose to cut 2 to 4 cm every three months or 10 cm every 6 months.
Eat a balanced diet
This tip may seem… boring to you, as it is seen and reviewed. But it is effective! For good growth results, a varied and balanced diet must be followed to provide the scalp with all the right tools that will be transported by the blood vessels: nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Don’t skimp on fruits, vegetables, and super foods and drink enough water, which are essential fuels to hydrate the hair fiber well.
when. Adeline Finet-Benyair, Vitamins B5 (pantothenic acid) and vitamin B8 (biotin) play a particularly important role in hair growth. Vitamin B5 is found, among other things, in brewer’s yeast, egg yolks, whole grains, soybeans, lentils, avocados, peanuts, and cashews. As for biotin, it is present in large quantities in the following foods: dry yeast, liver, kidneys, eggs (yolk), mushrooms, beans, and lentils.
Arm yourself with patience!
It’s the nerves of war… the more desperate you are to wait for your hair to decide to grow, the more you’ll have this impression that it’s not growing. You should leave them alone, forget them! For this, some tips are effective. For example, tie them regularly. But not anyway! Use rubber and metal-free rubber bands on the satin material to avoid breakage as much as possible. And we avoid hairstyles that are too tight!
