Growing Healthy Hair

Posted May 30, 2011 by theron in Fashion & Beauty

I have been tapped into some hair forums here and there; I see growth challenges all over the place. I don’t know the rules of the challenge but I do see how some take it really seriously. For those of you that want to grow your hair to “win” the challenge, or if you want to see how long your hair can grow, I thought I would give you some insight on how to “grow” and “keep” your hair long and healthy.

Hair needs protein and moisture to be healthy— Every product you put on your head need to help balance the two key components. Be careful of a product that makes your hair LOOK good, but it’s not adding any benefit to it. Usually those are the products that just sit on top of the hair (coats) instead of penetrate.

Adopt a healthy diet—Everything you put into your body will come out through your hair. Have you heard of drug test giving using hair stands? The hair is fed through the blood circulation. What is in your system (blood) will also be in your hair.

Hair will only grow a certain length—Hair that will continue to grow until you can climb down two story building with it is only in cartoons. The length your hair will grow is predetermined before you were born. It will have a lot to do with heredity. But just like the hair on arms and legs only grow to a certain length, the same applied you hair on your head.

Hair shedding—a healthy head of hair can shed up to 100 strands a day. The GOOD NEWS is with normal shedding, there is another strand of hair to replace it. Therefore you are losing nothing. This is usually during the resting phase in the growth cycle. Once hair has grown its maximum length, it rests to allow the new stand to replace the old. It can take up to 6 years to replace ever head on your head during the shedding process.

Hair Breakage—breakage is usually contributed to hair dryness. The hair is out of balance with protein and moisture for some reason. It could be medication, chemicals, too much heat, or product choices. Hair breakage is the “short hair” you see sometimes when you comb or brush your hair. Some people may have breakage in one area of their head where the hair is broke almost to the scalp

Hair Thinning—Hair loss—hair is shedding but there isn’t a new hair to replace it. This could be an issue with medication, diet, or heredity. Each issue with hair loss is unique, so seeking professional advice is a must.

Blood circulation—stimulus of the scalp can produce blood circulation at the scalp which can promote hair growth. You can hand message, use a shampoo brush while shampooing, brushing your hair. Just be careful that the instrument you use is fit for your hair type and will not cause unwanted breakage.

Trimming—Most people cringe when a stylist say that their hair needs to be trimmed. But trimming the hair is a key to keeping it growing healthy. Every 6 weeks is a good schedule to be on to trim your hair. Usually hair only needs up to a ¼ of an inch cut off. Let me talk a little about split ends…

SPLIT ENDS—is when the hair literally splits at the end of the hair shaft. The ends of your hair are usually the driest even on healthy hair. This hair should be trimmed at least every 6 weeks. Without trimming the hair, the split ends will continue to move upward on the hair shaft and it starts looking “ratty” on the ends. Have you ever seen someone with long hair, but the last 2 inches are “fried” or “ratty”? This is because this person is holding on to dead split ends for fear of losing their length. What they do not realize is they are creating more breakage by having to comb more aggressively through the ends of their hair. Or they use excessive heat elements to try and straighten out the issue, which causes more dryness and add to the splitting. NOTE TO THE NATURALS: You need to trim also. This will cut down on knots forming and help with detangling your hair.

Vitamins—Hair vitamins have been known to help your hair reach its capacity of growth. It is the vitamin Biotin that helps promote hair growth. You can take a vitamin supplement or food with biotin, such as peanuts, to help promote growth. Usually vitamins can show great results for someone who has suffered hair loss or baldness.

The complete growth cycle for hair is up to ½ inch of grown a month or 6 inches a year. As you can see there a many factors that can help or harm your hair growth goals. As a professional, I would advice that you partner with your stylist to help you achieve or maintain the longest healthiest hair you can grow.
