Best Tips For Healthy Hair Growth

Waiting for longer hair is truly a game of patience, so following our Best Tips For Healthy Hair Growth will give your hair the essential environment and condition. Book a consultation with @hannahwalshhair to discuss your individual hair requirements. The experienced team of stylists in our Chester Hair Salon can help you work out the best individual maintenance routine. Read on to discover lots of different ways to potentially helping your hair growth.

Wear Protective Hairstyles

Protective hairstyles cannot directly help your hair grow, but what they CAN do is help to reduce breakage, and less breakage can help you achieve longer hair. Buns, plaits, chignons, cornrows, Bantu knots and two strand twists are all protective styles to consider.

Eat a Healthy Diet

As with many other aspects of our lives, eating a healthy diet is one of the keys to all round health. A balanced intake of fresh food gives the body the nutrients it needs to function well, so a Best Tips For Healthy Hair Growth list wouldn’t be complete without including this essential point. There are many websites with in depth descriptions of foods for hair growth, our favourites are eggs, berries, avacados, spinach and sweet potatoes!

Hold Back on the Heat

Avoid using excessive heat on your hair as this makes for dry and brittle strands. Exposure to higher temperatures over 300°F actually changes the way Keratin behaves inside our hair and causes long term damage.

Learn About Nioxin

Nioxin, safe for most people, is a popular three part system for treating thinning and hair loss, with research showing over 80% of users had less hair loss after 8 weeks application. Each Nioxin system is formulated to promote scalp health and combat thin hair in both women and men. We advise everyone to speak to a professional hair stylist or doctor before beginning a course of any hair medication.

Silk Pillows

Sleeping on silk pillows is an easy and time proven way to help the general health and maintenance of our hair. It may seem like an expensive option compared to standard cotton but most women who make the switch to sleeping on silk pillows never look back!

Avoid Restrictive Dieting

Eating a healthy balanced diet is far better for both our hair and ourselves than any form of restrictive dieting. It’s very hard to find a diet that still provides all our essential nutrients.

Get Outside

Natural air drying is a great way to achieve full and healthy looking hair. Take advantage of warm summer days with a light breeze and let your hair flow!

Scalp Massage

Aside from relieving stress and tension, there has been some limited research conducted that shows that regular scalp massage may help towards hair thickness and growth. Whether it really helps growth or not, we highly recommend teaching your partner how to perform the perfect head massage for a nice relax at the end of every day!
