Probably the most asked question-ever, many people genuinely desire to know what can make their hair grow faster. Genetics play a major role in hair growth. Some hair textures grow faster and require little to no help. We just need to learn our hair.
For one, moisture is key. Moisture is the key to length retention and longer hair. When your hair is moisturized, you don’t have to worry about tangles and breakage. You can feed your hair moisture with water followed by a natural oil, or get the entire experience at a go with our Tsavorite Spritz Moisturizer Hair Spray.
Another key factor in noticing growth is protective hairstyles. Protective hairstyles=low manipulation. Low manipulation=growth. You don’t need to be manipulating your hair every other time. Keeping it in a protective style like cornrows for some time can actually help you notice extra inches.
With low maintenance also comes not washing your hair too often and avoiding heat styling. There’s a bunch of tips on the internet about making your hair grow faster, but one thing to note is that good things take time. Additionally, different things work differently for different people. What’s important is to find what works best for you.
Cutting your tips only helps your hair grow healthier by getting rid of the split ends. In essence, trimming your tips every 6 months will only help you retain length. Trimming your ends more often than this could be effectively getting rid of new growth.
In regards to the big chop, you don’t need to cut all of your hair in an effort to make it grow. After the big chop your hair will grow healthier and give the appearance to be growing quicker than before because you’re retaining more length.
You need products that deliver moisture to your hair. Many people are quick to buy hair oil for the magical growth they’re looking to achieve, but you can’t apply oil to dry hair hoping it will grow. You’ll just have dry oily hair if anything.
Products like conditioners and leave-in treatments deliver the moisture you need to your hair, and hair oils and butters seal in the moisture.
