Why Is My Hair Not Growing?
This past year has been difficult on all of us. It has also been difficult on our hair. Drastic changes have happened in our hair routine due to being in a bubble. And the added stress has done no favors to our precious tresses. That might be one of the reasons if your hair isn't growing as fast as before.
1. I Know You've Seen This One Before...Is Your Hair Moisturized Enough?
If your hair is dull, brittle and lifeless, chances are you haven’t been adding the necessary amount of moisture to your hair care regimen. Deep conditioning and daily moisturizing are the building blocks of healthy curly hair. Without proper hydration, especially on the ends, your hair can start breaking. To prevent your hair from drying out, deep condition it regularly with Organic ingredient based deep conditioner. For example, Algae Renew Deep Conditioner would be best fit for any hair type.
2. Protein-Deficient Hair.
If you notice your curls are limp or losing curl pattern, it could be a sign that your hair lacks protein. Having healthy hair involves maintaining a moisture-protein balance. When your curls are absent of either, it can kill your hair’s elasticity, thus making your coils brittle and prone to breakage.
After you deep condition your curls, follow up with a Strengthening Protein Treatment to even the moisture-protein balance and promote hair growth. Remember, you can overdo it with the protein so be careful. One treatment every 4-6 weeks should do the trick.
3. Not Too Much Heat Please!
It’s okay to stretch out those curls and rock straight hair from time to time. However, if you go overboard with heat styling, especially on already dry and brittle hair, it can cause your hair to break and lose its length.
If you must heat-style your hair, use curly hair care products with a thermal heat protectant. Here are some options for you to consider.
4. Excessive Styling...
Okay, we know it’s hard to get the style just right the first time, but too much styling can lead to over-manipulation. Constantly combing, brushing and colouring hair causes breakage.
Instead, wear protective styles from time to time so it doesn’t require daily manipulation. While using hair colours, opt for Ammonia Free hair colours. Additionally, style your hair with curly hair care products which protect your hair from breakage. Try Avocado Hair Mousse for styling and setting protective styles.
5. Vitamins Are Vital.
Your hair needs proper nourishment to grow from the inside out. In addition to vitamin-rich curly hair care products, you might also need to add B vitamins to your diet or through supplements.
Scientific Fact: Unless you’re facing certain medical issues, or suffered permanent damage to your follicles, your hair is ALWAYS growing. The problem is you’re not retaining the length from healthy growth; that is, your hair is breaking off faster than it’s growing.
