Tired of split ends and stunted hair growth? Dealing with hair loss can be quite stressful especially if you’ve tried everything possible in the book to salvage your hair from the horrors of hair shedding. But everything aside, It is actually quite simple to combat hair loss and boost hair growth. The trick here is to be armed with the right arsenal of products to use and which ones to ditch. Don’t lose sleep over this girl, we have gone and simplified ways of reducing hair fall; you might as well be taking notes!
Washing your hair way too much can affect its well-being. Reduce the number of times you wash your hair to once a week. Try to pre-poo every time you use a shampoo. Try the African Pride Moisture Miracle Aloe & Coconut Water Pre-Shampoo, enriched with aloe and coconut (both essentially great for your hair) this one’s a keeper! We highly recommended it to ensure your hair is not stripped of its natural oils while shampooing.
The ends of your hair are where maximum damage tends to take place and this can lead to hair loss and stunted hair growth. Split ends are a common woe amongst many naturalists and indicate lack of moisture.
So first things first – get a trim! Then, treat your ends to a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. Post your DC, seal the moisture in with a thick sealant, concentrating on the ends as they need some extra attention. Castor oil is works miraculously in restoring moisture balance and thus promoting hair growth. We swear by African Pride Black Castor Miracle Hair & Scalp Sealing Oil – a true miracle, indeed. Try it to believe it!
Heat is a BIG no-no when it comes to dealing with hair loss. It makes natural hair drier than it already is. Not only does it lead to frizz but is also a big contributing reason for split ends.
Only if it’s absolutely necessary, apply a heat protectant leave in as it will form a protective shield on your hair cuticles prevent any possible damage from heat styling.
Many a time, a lot of us mishandle our hair without even being aware of it. We totally understand how precious your tresses are so here’s a reminder to be gentle, woman! Brush your hair only when it is adequately moisturized, else it can lead to breakage. Also if you’re donning protective hairstyles, your hairstyle shouldn’t be too tight as it tends to tug on your natural hair.
Lastly, never wear the hairstyle longer than recommended as it can lead to serious damage and cause bald patches.
Lastly make sure you’re eating a balanced diet as it largely contributes in boosting hair growth. Check out 5 Foods to Eat for Healthy Hair.
