Do you want to grow your hair?
If you do, then you're not alone.
But here's the thing: to grow your hair there are some things that you can and cannot do.
Based on my experience, conversations with many customers, and my knowledge in the hair industry, I've gathered some of the biggest (yet easily correctable) mistakes that I've seen when it comes to hair growth.
I am going to make this short, sweet, and to the point.
Are you ready for me to share about these mistakes so that you can correct them?
I can't tell you the number of times someone has told me, "I wish I could grow my hair," or "I really would love to have healthy hair."
Your wishes and dreams can come true for having healthier, stronger, and longer hair.
When you first start growing your hair, it is perfectly normal for there to be some thinning and possibly even bald spots.
But if you will use the right products, maintain a healthy hair care routine, and remain patient, then you'll increase the changes of your hair growing back.
However, most people give up too quickly. They might say, "well, I tried that product or hair care regimen for two weeks and don't see any changes."
My encouragement to you is to continue to practice patience and give your hair some time to grow . . . even more than you anticipated.
I know this can be tough, to wait until your hair fully grows back in.
But here's the thing, healthy hair and growing your hair is not an overnight event, it is a process that takes time.
So don't give up!
Growing your hair is often the result of a routine.
Routine is something that you do over and over again.
Do you have a healthy hair care routine?
Or better yet, do you know what a healthy hair routine should consist of?
There are a few things that you'll need: the right products, proper sleep, nutrients and vitamins, healthy food, regular exercise, not to wear hair styles that pull on your hair, reduce stress, to name a few.
You also need to set some hair goals.
Without hair goals you can end up just wishing for everything to happen but not specific enough to focus in on something.
One of the mistakes I see if that people take some products for a short time, and don't do any (or maybe a few) of the other things that I mentioned and wonder why their hair is not growing and healthy.
What are your hair goals? Have you given yourself sufficient amount of time to reach them? Are you doing your part to reach your hair goals?
It's surprising but I still meet people who literally expect their hair to grow overnight.
Let me give you a little bit of truth. Your hair is not going to grow from your ears to your shoulders and down your back by next week.
This may sound funny, and while it may have made you laugh, a lot of women still have these expectations.
Most often unrealistic expectations happen when people don't understand the basic science behind hair growth.
Here it is in nutshell: Most people are born with about 100,000 hair follicles on their head.
But this is what you have to know: your follicles grow at about 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) each month which is about 6 inches in a year.
Therefore, you should be documenting your hair growth journey in 30 day increments at least for the next 90 days.
If you really want to grow your hair in a healthy way, you should at least commit to 90 days. This commitment includes all of the things I said above about having a healthy hair care routine.
How are you feeling so far about these mistakes? Am I stepping on your toes? My apologies if that's the case, but I really want to see you reach your hair goals.
I created a hair oil because may hair fell out because of an illness. And I wanted to make sure that I was only using natural ingredients on my head.
The thing about growth oil is that they are designed to help moisturize your hair, simulate it with ingredients that are associated with growth but also to be used in concert with other healthy hair products.
Using hair oils can be as simple as applying some a few times per week, massaging your scalp, and following a healthy hair care routine (like listed above).
When using oils, you want to make sure that you use oils that are made with natural products and don't have any parabens.
I hope that you've found these tips useful. My goal is that you'll avoid these mistakes and one day (soon) reach your hair goals.
