Tips for achieving healthy hair growth of 15 cm a year

Have your hairdresser tip your ends every 10 to 12 weeks to keep split ends at bay.

Use Too Shea! or  Aloeba conditioner every time you shampoo to help lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft and seal the cuticle

Don’t shampoo every time you shower since that can take essential natural oils which are vital to the health of your hair.

Show your hair some real love once a week with either a Stimulating Scalp Massage or Deep Conditioning Treatment. 

We all know that beauty begins on the inside so provide your body with healthy nutrients to assist in healthy hair growth.

  1. Iron and zinc help hair follicles to grow and these are found in lean red meat, soy beans, lentils and oranges.
  2. Vitamin D is super important for many areas of your body but few foods contain it naturally.  A few minutes sitting in the sun should supply your daily requirement.
  3. The Omega 3 fatty acids found in fish like salmon consumed twice a week is hugely beneficial to your hair and general health.
  4. Eggs-cellent eggs are rich in Biotin, one of the B vitamins as well as protein, choline, and vitamin D which are all essential for growth.

Of course you can buy supplements which can also supply these nutrients however be sure to check in with your doctor to make sure that you take the right amounts and that they won’t interact with any medications you’re currently taking.

At the risk of  repeating ourselves, brushes and curls are not compatible and the only time a comb should be let near your gorgeous locks is when it is wet and enjoying a conditioning treatment.

Switch your cotton pillowcase for silk.   Cotton tangles anyone’s hair but for curlies it also sucks out moisture and creates frizz.

Don’t let cotton towels  near your curls, use thin and soft microfibre

Bit tricky to achieve at this time of year but experts do recommend a cold-water rinse at the end of each shower to help grow hair and keep it healthy.
