  • Eat healthy + drink lots of water.

In order to be healthy on the outside, you have to be healthy on the inside first. By eating healthy and drinking water you’ll be providing your body with the nutrients and hydration it needs to thrive. Taking vitamins along with eating healthy will provide you body with the vitamins it isn’t receiving from the foods you eat.

  • Avoid excess amounts of heat on your hair.

Applying heat on your hair often, especially without a good heat protectant, will cause heat damage due to the permanent alteration of protein bonds in the hair. Heat damage causes straight, damaged ends. The damage from heat is irreversible meaning your curls will not come back in the parts of the hair that were damaged.

  • Get your ends clipped as necessary.

If you have split ends and you continue to let them go without being cut, the split will travel further up the hair shaft causing more damage. Even if your hair is growing, you won’t really be able to tell having split ends.

  • Moisturise your hair often.

When hair lacks moisture and becomes dry, it will become brittle and this makes it more prone to breakage. Though moisturizing doesn’t help grow hair any faster, it prevents hair from breaking off and retains length.

  • Massage your scalp.

Massaging your scalp stimulates blood flow to the scalp which promotes hair growth.

  • Maintain a healthy scalp.

Your scalp is where your hair is coming from. If you scalp isn’t healthy, you hair won’t grow as it should. Keep a healthy scalp by removing buildup and ensuring it is always moisturized.

  • Condition + deep condition your hair often.

Conditioning and deep conditioning your hair often promotes elasticity, keeps your hair moisturized, and prevents breakage. When conditioning and deep conditioning your hair, wear a plastic cap or bag on your head to keep the heat in to better penetrate the hair follicles.
