Spring is right around the corner and with the warmer weather comes the desire for mermaid-worthy locks. We totally get it, but sometimes it can feel like an eternity waiting for your hair to grow out even half an inch. Luckily, we’ve gathered some of the best tips and tricks to help you achieve your ultimate hair goals.
- Beauty Truly Does Start From Within
We don’t mean to be cliché, but a healthy body is going to produce healthy hair. So, take a moment and make sure you are giving yourself all the delicious omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids that act as a jumpstart for hair growth. Think foods like avocado, salmon, berries, nuts, and spinach. Who says you can't eat your way to long beautiful hair?
- Show Some Love To Your Scalp
It’s no secret that giving some attention to your scalp daily will help promote growth and thickness. We recommend taking a few minutes during your shampooing to really give yourself a nice scalp massage. This is going to stimulate the blood flow in that area and promote more growth. In addition to helping you reach your goal of mermaid hair, it also feels so so good.
- Don’t Skip The Trim
We know... even losing a little length feels devastating when you are trying to grow out your locks. While snipping off your dead-ends isn’t going to help your hair grow faster, it will keep your hair healthy and in turn, prevent breakage. This is all about the big picture, if you want long hair, you need to focus on its health. So, going into the salon and getting that quick trim is an absolute must.
- A Little Luxury Never Hurts
You’d be surprised at how much damage can happen to your hair in the middle of the night, especially if you are one to toss and turn. Switching out your normal pillowcase to a silk one is a good way to prevent any nighttime friction. It will also help reduce bedhead and make you feel lowkey royal. It’s a win-win.
- Products Matter
If you are serious about growing your hair to Rapunzel lengths, then it is worth investing in some amazing products that will put in some work for you. A good shampoo and conditioner are non-negotiable, and you should look for ones that are designed for your specific hair needs. Here are some of our personal favorites that your hair will thank you for.
- Skip The DIY Approach
We love a good DIY project as much as the next person but when you are trying to concentrate on the health of your hair, you should leave any sort of coloring or bleaching to the professionals. Box dyes can be damaging and bleaching at home can lead to some serious issues. Go to a salon for any of your coloring needs, both the quality of the product and the experience of the hairdresser will save you from a ton of damage (and heartache).
