Good Hair Practices To Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth
Posted by Main Admin on
Having healthy hair doesn't happen by chance. It certainly doesn't happen when we ignore it. As it is with everything, there are certain basic guiding principles to follow. Throw out the notion that natural hair doesn't and cannot grow. Follow these guidelines instead.
Allow your hair to breathe
Naturalistas have one excuse or the other why they can't wear their own hair - 'my hair is too thin', 'my hair is too thick', 'I don't have time for my hair', etc. One of the best things you can do for your hair is to wear it out. Allow 'air to pass through'. Always wearing wigs, braids, one protective style to the next, always covering your hair will thin it out. Do everything in moderation but most importantly, wear your hair. Rock it with pride.
This should always be part of your hair care regimen. Moisturize your hair regularly and properly. Wet your hair with water or the Aloe Vera Hair Mist, apply your leave in lotion and follow it up with your Shea Butter or Hair Growth Oil. Massage thoroughly on your hair and scalp before styling. Do this as often as possible but preferably every day or once every two days if you have low porosity hair.
Deep Condition your hair
Natural hair tends to dry out quickly. Deep conditioning it regularly helps in restoring moisture to the hair. You can do so with already formulated products like the Deep Conditioning Treatment from Eya Naturals. Alternatively, you can go the DIY route. Make sure to apply heat to your hair to ensure the products penetrate the hair shaft.
Protein Treatment to prevent breakage
Don't wait till you start experiencing hair breakage before you treat it. Going in for Protein Treatment once every 6 weeks protects your hair from breakage. Having too much protein in your hair, can also lead to your hair breaking. So, protein treatment once every 6 weeks is advised. Please do not exceed this. You may end up further damaging your hair than repairing it.
Choose the right products for your hair
Using the right products for your hair will improve its health. If you're experiencing breakage, go in for products meant to restore your hair such as the Hair Repair Therapy Set. If you're experiencing dandruff, the Dry Scalp Set is your best bet. For kids, use the Kids Set. If you want to stimulate growth, the Grow and Thicken Set is best. The Locs Set is ideal for people with locs on. For veteran or new naturalistas, the Essentials Set is your pick.
Massage your scalp
Massaging the scalp, especially with growth stimulating oils such as Castor Oil and Hair Growth Oil, helps in blood circulation which further ends in stimulating growth. Do this at least once every week. You'll be glad you did.
Stop installing tight hairstyles
Installing tight hairstyles is a no-no. You end up getting hair bumps which could result in traction alopecia especially around the edges. It takes just one tight hairstyle to lose your edges but could take forever to grow it back. Speak out if your hairstyle is too tight. Let your stylist know. Don't be shy about it.
Protect your hair at night
Cover your hair when going to bed. You can do so with a satin/silk bonnet or scarf. You can alternatively invest in silk or sating pillowcases. This is to ensure that your hair is not pulled whilst sleeping. This often leads to wear and tear or split ends. Take the safe route. Protect your hair at night.
Growing your hair starts with ensuring that you have healthy. These tips above are guiding principles. Don't forget to listen to your hair and do what works best for you.
