5 Tips For Growing Out Your Hair

   
 
 I think we've all been here, where we just wish out hair could grow five inches over night so it could finally be the length we want. Whether you chopped you hair and want your old hair back, want to grow it out so you can donate, or just want some change, I've rounded up some of my best tips for growing out your locks. Of course this process requires quite a lot of patience, all five of these tips are things I've personally used in my own life and have seen positive results with. I'd love to hear from you all, if you've ever tried any of these tips out or if you're going to start now! At the bottom of this post I have every product linked that I talked about for you to check out.

1. Be gentle while bruhsing your hair- The unfortaunte reality of having long hair is that the longer it gets, the more tangled it can become. A lot of times when I wake up in the morning my hair has become super knotted right at the back of my neck and it takes some time and patience to get it untangled without just ripping my hair all out. If I just really roughly brush my hair so I can get ready quick, a ton of my hair breaks and over time it make my ends really gross and stringy. I find that if I use my wet brush (I swear by this thing) and start at my ends and the work my way up I get the least amount of breakage, while also not brushing my hair for ten minutes straight. Also, I love to use moroccan oil, leave in conditioner or knot spray after I shower which leaves my hair a lot softer and eaiser to manage.

2. Goodbye cotton pillow case- I'm sure the majority of you all reading this all use a cotton pillow case, which I did for a long time myself. The friction of your hair rubbing up against this as you sleep can actually cause a lot of breakage and split ends, which is obviously the opposite of what you want if you are trying to grow out your hair. I remember having a conversaton with my hairdresserw where I explained I probably use heat on my hair once every two weeks, yet i still find I have tons of split ends. She told me that when you have long hair you can get split ends and some breakage just from your hair rubbing against your clothes and pillows. We are clearly all not going to go buy a whole new wardrobe that is softer for our hair, but a new pillowcase is a great way to start. You can find a silk or satin pillowcase for a lot cheaper then I ever thought and it will really make a difference in the long run.

3. Wash your hair less- DO NOT confuse this tip with me saying shower less, please shower everyday! But, you do not need to wash your hair every time you shower or even every other day. if you can stretch it to three or even four days that's amazing and it'll give your hair a break. If you wash your hair every day you strip your hair of its natural oils and it over compensates by producing even more oil. Think of it the same way as why people with oily skin still need to moisturize. In between washes I always use some dry shampoo to help with oil, freshen up, and get some great volume for styling. My favorite dry shampoos are DryBar, Batiste, and Living Proof. Now, if you want to go the extra mile I would recommend using a deep conditioning treatment once a week. By doing this you'll really nourish your hair and it will help to make your hair stronger, so you'll get less split ends from using heat.

4. Cut down on the heat and use heat protectant- I know, I know, we've all heard this one a million times, but I really couldn't leave it out. The more split ends you get from using heat on your hair, the more trims you'll need to keep getting which will make your hair getting to the length you desire a much longer process. I'm sure I'm not the only one who completely fried their hair in middle school, we're talking straightening it practically every single day. When I look back on those cringe worthy photos now the thing that always shocks me is how awful my hair looks. I used heat on it every single day becuase I thought I had to in order to look good, but in reality I was doing the exact opposite. My hair started to really grow the best when I finally came to terms with my natural hair as I got older. Now I'm not saying I never use heat on my hair, I do, but I try to use it for special occasions or if I know I'm going to be taking a lot of pictures. So just remember, heat protectant and a lower heat on your flat iron or curling iron will be very beneficial to you.

5. Hair viatmins- I left this one for last becuase I think this is probably the most contraversial one on my list. I know some people think these vitamins do absoultely nothing for your hair, but I have to say when I use them I feel like my hair is at least a lot stronger and helps it grow a little bit faster. I'm not promoting those bear gummies the Kardashian's all have ads for all over there Instagram's, you don't need to spend $30 a month for these! I really like Nature's Bounty which is just $12 for about two months. These types of things will work a bit differently on every person since it also has to do with your diet, but for just $12 I think it is worth a shot.
