Charleston SC Bridal Hair

4 Tips for Major Hair Growth

Hey there! We hope that y’all are enjoying this chilly yet beautiful Charleston day, thistemperature definitely has us wanting to be cozy inside with a bowl of soup!

We all want our hair to grow and be long and healthy, and we probably all have our own routines set. Having a consistent hair care routine is super important when it comes to hair growth, but it’s also important to make sure that your routine includes things that are actually going to promote/aid growth in the first place! Keep reading to make sure that your routine is actually helping, or to find out if you need to make a couple of tweaks!

Turn Down the Heat

While we understand that there are times when heat styling is necessary, (also, who doesn’t love adding a few curls or going for a sleek look?!) but it is important to think about what you have your heat set to. It’s okay to use heat on your hair occasionally, but make sure that if/when you are using heat, that you have it set on the lowest setting possible.

This helps to ensure that you won’t experience too much damage, but when you do this along with applying a heat protectant to your hair prior, talk about results! Your hair will thank you, and you’ll also have a little bit of extra luster from the heat protectant!

Oils, Oils, Oils!

OILY HAIR TYPE DISCLAIMER: While adding more oil may not be the best idea, for this tip, try washing your hair with cooler/colder water and massaging your scalp to promote hair growth. Washing with hot water can produce more oil, so cooling it down will help as will massaging your the oils naturally produced into your scalp!

Incorporating more oils into your hair care routine will change your hair game! Not only does in add moisture into your hair, but it also seals that moisture in helping to ensure that you won’t have any issues with dry ends. You can incorporate oils into your routine by using it as a serum, a mask before you shampoo, or even as a refresher for your ends between styles. Natural oils like coconut, olive, avocado, jojoba oil etc. work best, but even using a cleansing oil shampoo and/or conditioner works wonders!

Low Manipulation

Brushing and combing your hair is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean that you have to experience crazy breakage or pain every time you do so! We all know that it’s important to detangle your hair, but you want to make sure that when you do, you’re as gentle as possible. Sometimes wide tooth combs and paddle brushes won’t cut it, so using tools like a Wet Brush or Tangle Teezer will help to ensure that you get all of those knots out, and as pain free as possible!

CURLY GIRL TIP: The above mentioned products are perfect for you! Be sure to always detangle hair only when it is damp or wet, and after you’ve applied a conditioning product or oil that will aid in the detangling process. Remember to start from the ends up, and to take your time!

WATER!

Let’s face it, we all saw this one coming. We’ve said it before, and we’ll probably scream it from the rooftops for as long as we live!

Hydration is the key to glowy and healthy skin, hair and nails! If you’re not a big water drinker, and adding fruits/mint just isn’t enough to make it more interesting, try Mio! It’s flavoring that you can add to your water, and listen…it definitely makes it more doable. (It’s also diet friendly)

If flavored water isn’t your jam, try using a timed water bottle (you can find them on Amazon) or make a game out of it to keep yourself on your toes! Either way, keep that water bottle handy and make sure that you’re getting your H2O!

Do you need to make any tweaks to your routine, or are you doing a pretty stellar job? Either way, we’re so glad that we were able to shed some light on how we can all have glorious locks!
