Food vitamins, proteins, and minerals have a vital role in the hair follicle growth cycle and cell turnover. Some foods with high nutritional value for hair growth are eggs, green vegetables, sweet potatoes, avocados, and fatty fish. Not only is your hair nourished, but so are your nails and skin.
#2 Avoid Heat Styling As Much As Possible
As a general rule, blow dryers at temperatures above 410°F will melt the keratin in your hair. Therefore, you need to restrict the time heated instruments come into touch with your hair. In the unlikely event, you should use the lowest temperature setting. For example, no more than 10 seconds should be spent wrapping hair around a curling iron. In addition, it’s important to spray heat every time you use a heat styler. These products help slow down the heat transmission from the tool into your hair.
#3 Get Regular Trims
According to research, hair grows on average about ½ inch per month. During this time, they will inevitably sustain some damage leading to broken, split ends. Regular pruning will get you to the desired length quickly. Furthermore, trimming gives your hair a voluminous appearance. Thus, getting a haircut every three months is a must.
#4 Don’t Skimp On Moisturizer Application

#5 Keep Their Hair Clean And Use Right Products
Using the right products for your hair will provide moisture as well as give your hair a bouncy look. Please keep in mind that you should not switch brands frequently. Hair takes time to adapt to certain products, so stick with one.
#6 Avoid Hot Showers

Similar to facial and body skin, hot water can remove essential oils from the scalp, causing inflammation and hindering hair growth. Thus, the key to healthy hair is to use cooler water.
#7 Avoid Cotton Pillow Covers
Have you ever woken up with dry, frizzy, and tangled hair? If the answer is yes, you should consider changing your pillowcase. The pillowcase’s scratchy cotton fibers hinder the hair from moving, resulting in tangles. Furthermore, your hair rubs against the cotton fibers, leading to breakage. Silk pillowcases are an idea worth considering.
