Growing your hair long doesn’t have to be some tough equation that takes you forever to master. Just following the basic hair care rules and making sure you’re taking care when doing so can make all the difference in the world.
Here are 5 tips that you can use to maximize your hair growth now!
1. Develop a Consistent Routine
One of the most important things to consider is the development of a consistent hair care routine. Consistency is key!
Come up with a schedule. Will you shampoo once a month and co-wash the other 3 weeks during the month? Are you making sure you’re deep conditioning regularly and doing protein treatments when needed?
Having a consistent routine with the right products is the start of healthy hair and scalp, which leads to even more healthy hair growth!
2. Moisture, Moisture, Moisture!
Moisture is necessary in making sure your hair is not dry and brittle which leads to more breakage. Especially in these dry summer months it’s important that you are spritzing your hair with a water-based mixture to ensure moisture retention. You can also seal this in with oils which I’ll talk more about in the next tip.
Moisture will give you more malleable hair strands with a lustrous appearance to maintain the hair you already have and encourage more hair growth.
3. Oils and Scalp Massages
I mentioned earlier how oils make for a great sealant. Specifically essential oils are also vital for hair growth. Oils like cedar wood, lavender and rosemary, for example, are known to encourage hair growth via increase of blood circulation within the scalp.
The scalp is very vascular meaning there are many veins running to the hair follicles which our strands grow from. Using a combination of oils as well as scalp massages can increase the amount of blood flow and ensure that our hair follicles are getting all of the nutrients they need.
Applying a little oil to your fingertips and gently massaging your scalp for a minute or two is enough to make a difference.

4. Hair Growth Vitamins
It’s no secret, hair growth vitamins are a major key in speeding up hair growth. These specially designed vitamins are formulated to boost hair growth from the inside out contains key factors like biotin, vitamin c, and more that are scientifically proven to enhance hair growth.
5. Stop Obsessing
Lastly, stop obsessing over growing your hair. According to biology, our hair will continue to grow according to the hair growth cycles, but it’s a matter of continuing to retaining that healthy hair to see a noticeable difference. Stop living and sleeping hair growth, follow a good routine, and you will look back over a couple of months and see the difference your hair has come.
