3 Effective Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Long and Strong

Dreaming of a longer, stronger head of hair? If so, you might be curious how you can make your hair grow faster, without the use of supplements or extensions. Though hair usually only grows by about a quarter-inch every month, there are a few ways you can encourage growth – and, best of all, there are no gimmicky products in the mix. Here are a few ways to finally get long, healthy hair naturally.

Trim your hair frequently.

It’s been said that you should trim your hair every six weeks. But, does that really work, when it comes to making your hair grow long and strong? The short answer is yes. If you don’t get your hair trimmed frequently, you’re essentially allowing your hair to get frayed and split at the end. This damage will eventually travel up your hair shaft, resulting in breakage that will make your hair look thinner and eliminates growth beyond a certain point. Keep up to date with your trims and you’ll reap the rewards with a longer, stronger mane.

Don't skip conditioner.

When it comes to hair growth, preserving the integrity and strength of your hair is the name of the game. So, it only makes sense that conditioner – as in, the product that goes on your hair after shampoo – is a key tool to preserving your hair and ensuring that it grows as long as possible. According to hair experts, you should moisturize your hair every single time you get it wet in the shower. This will prevent and restore heat damage while replacing the lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft and sealing the outer cuticle.

Brush your hair gently.

Brushing or combing your hair is essential. However, there’s a right and wrong way to do it, if you want to maximize hair growth. Aggressive brushing can cause physical damage to your hair that will prevent it from ever looking long, and carelessly brushing wet hair can result in breakage, as well. When you detangle wet hair, be sure to start from the bottom and work your way up slowly. If your hair is dry, you can proceed with slightly less caution, but be sure to use a natural boar-bristle brush, which helps gently distribute your scalp’s natural oils down the hair shaft.
