Hair extensions may instantly give you the length you desire however extensions lead to hair loss and eventually balding with constant use.
I tried and tested many products and tools of the trade of hair growth, so you don’t have to and found the solutions to rescue what’s left of your hair, amp your hair growth and maintain healthy looking tresses.
My friends envied my long locks and marveled at how quickly and healthy it grew, it even surprised me, because it didn’t take much effort.
Here are three ways on how to make your hair grow faster:
1. Brazilian Blow Wave:
Don’t be a victim of relaxing your hair. This is an outdated straightening system, which results in a catastrophe of damaged hair. Consider a Brazilian blow wave for hair restoration and new hair growth instead.
It brings our the best in your locks, targeted at getting rid of frizz and re-building and strengthening damaged hair strands from root to tip.
The treatment instantly lifts your hair giving you immediate added length.
Pre Keratin Treatment: Clarify your hair using a clarifying shampoo followed by a conditioning masque the day before your Brazilian blow wave.
Keratin Treatment: Book yourself a Brazilian blow wave treatment also known as a keratin treatment at a reputable salon with a trim or cut (if you have split ends). Trust me, cutting your hair is the first step to growing your hair and hair regeneration. There’s no point in growing unhealthy, thinning and splitting hair.
Post Keratin Treatment: Ensure that you get a shampoo and conditioner with the ingredient keratin for use at home.
Have a Brazilian blow out treatment every 3 – 6 months.
Every 3 months for very frizzy hair.
*Do not have a Brazilian blow wave if your hair is already chemically treated – this will damage your hair.
2. Minoxidil Or Horse Conditioner
Apply minoxidil 2% (60ml) everyday twice a day – a solution you can purchase at your local pharmacy. This will help your hair growth tremendously.
Don’t spray too much of the solution, a small amount will do. Massage the solution throughout your scalp only, not on the full length of your hair.
A 60ml bottle should last you up to 6 weeks.
Minoxidil should not be used continuously, use it for 4 to 6 weeks to help accelerate growth. Minoxidil is a strong solution and can cause migraines and long-term use can result in excessively dry hair as well as other side effects that your local pharmacist will explain to you before your purchase.
Switch to horse conditioner after the use of minoxidil, as a long-term hair growth treatment.
An alternative to minoxidil is horse conditioner (not shampoo).
Horse shampoo dries out your hair causing dandruff and dry hair prone to split ends. The shampoo will also strip hair of salon treatments like Olaplex, Keratin and others.
If horse shampoo is the only remedy you can find, lather your hair in coconut oil before applying the shampoo to dry hair and leave it on overnight. Wash it off in the morning as you normally would. Use the horse conditioner with or without the coconut oil in the same way.
*Do not apply horse shampoo or conditioner and minoxidil to chemically treated hair as it can cause further damage.
Take a biotin hair supplement everyday of 30 mcg, also available at your pharmacy.
I tried the minoxidil solution over four weeks.
On average, your hair can grow a quarter of an inch per month.
Whilst using minoxidil, my hair grew a whooping one and a half inches in a month!
I suggested horse conditioner as an alternative; I have used this before and have also seen fantastic results in my hair growth.
Use the minoxidil (or horse conditioner) with supplements for six weeks, whilst taking care of your hair and you will see the improvement in the condition of your hair: thicker, fuller and longer.
