5. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse
This wonder vinegar has so many applications, including for skin and hair. When you do an apple cider vinegar (ACV) rinse, you’ll be removing product buildup. It also acts as a natural detangler and helps smooth down the cuticle of the strands, leaving the hair less prone to breakage.
By using this rinse regularly, you’ll be left with soft, smooth and strong hair. Simply mix one part water with one part apple cider vinegar and pour into your hair after shampooing. Allow to sit for a few minutes before rinsing out.
6. Play It Cool
It’s well-known that heat – in the form of blowdryers, curling tongs and straightening irons – is bad for hair and is a leading cause of breakage. Letting your hair air dry is one of the best things you can do in your quest for long locks.
If you can’t bear the thought of leaving the house with untamed hair, then follow these expert tips:
- Give your hair a day or two off from heat every so often
- Add oil or another protectant to wet hair before styling to shield it from damage
- Set your styling tool to the lowest heat for minimum harm
7. If You Color, Go Natural
Just like shampoos, hair dyes contain chemicals that are damaging to hair, causing splits and breaks. Even those that claim to be ‘natural’ can sometimes contain dangerous chemicals such as ammonia.
8. Apply Oil Weekly
Regular application of nourishing natural oils is key to preventing breakage, and encouraging faster hair growth.
Don’t waste your money on products marketed as being specially formulated for hair – there are plenty of inexpensive natural oils you can use instead which will add moisture and shine to your hair, reduce dandruff, and of course aid faster and healthier hair growth.
From argan to pomegranate, these seven super oils will help you grow longer and healthier hair. Apply them once or twice a week and leave on overnight for best results.
