 Although there are no fast fixes to speeding up the rate your hair grow, but in other to manage hair growth there are changes you need to make in the ways you care for your hair.

  • Poor hair hygiene: dirty scalp is not a ground for hair growth, apart from you experiencing breakage you’re building a bacteria empire.

Solution: wash your hair once or twice a week, washing and styling the hair less leads to more length retention, which is often perceived as growth.

  • Trimming your ends:  another reason your hair is experiencing stagnant growth is because you don’t trim the ends. Hair grows from the scalp and not the ends and trimming removes the damage from excessive heat usage, chemical processing, and natural weathering.

Solution: trim your ends after chemical treatments every 6-8 weeks or if possible after every wash to remove damaged ends before they break off and taper.

  • Greasing your scalp: is possible you are applying the wrong grease for your hair, using grease formulated with mineral oil and/or petrolatum oil suffocates the scalp.

Solution: just like the other part of the body your hair need oxygen to function properly, for scalp stimulation and lubrication use Peppermint oil, tea tree oil, and jojoba oil.
