Whether or not you believe that ‘the hair’ is the beauty of every woman, it doesn’t change the fact that you feel sad about your ‘non-growing’ hair. So, let’s start with why your hair stopped growing in the first place. Here are 3 top reasons you might want to consider:
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!
Whoever said ‘Water is life’ is definitely a genius. Water is life to your cells, tissues, and organs, including your hair! Moisturizing your hair alone is never enough. Drinking enough water and staying hydrated at all times boosts the growth of your hair follicles and prevent hair breakage.
Over-styling your hair
There is everything right about rocking beautiful and chic hairstyles. However, it is wrong for you to over-style and process your hair. This is because frequent perming, dying, and weaving your hair into tight braids weakens your hair shafts, break off your hair ends, and make your hair more porous. We recommend that you take breaks from the tight 1million braids and rock your natural hair or just wear a wig to protect your hair from damage.
Junk, the downfall of mankind
Ever heard garbage in, garbage out? If your diet consists of mainly junk, your hair will reflect it. A poor diet is wrong on all counts! To grow healthy and strong, your hair (like other organs in your body) need the right amount of nutrients which should be supplied by your diet – Vitamin A, D, and E, protein, fatty acid, antioxidants, etc.
Not having these in the right proportion will spell serious trouble to your hair as it will be more susceptible to dryness, breakage, and shedding. So if you are guilty of this, switch it up and include some greens and exercise into your routine. Your hair will thank you for it.
Remember, healthy hair is a sign of a healthy body. Give your hair the care it deserves and keep looking fabulous!
