Feel like your hair just doesn’t grow?

Follow our top 10 tips below to get started on your hair growth journey.

1. DIET

An all-around healthy diet is the biggest contributor to the health of your hair, skin and nails. Eating a diet high in fatty amino acids (e.g. avocados) will boost your hair growth.
At the salon, we sell Vita Sol Hair, Skin and Nail Powder to boost your hair health and stimulate growth.

Use Vita Sol Hair, Skin and Nail Powder to stimulate hair growth.

2. MASSAGE

Hair has a natural growth cycle – sometimes you lose hair, sometimes you gain hair.
Losing hair can be caused by factors such as stress.  Just like your body, head massage is one way to reduce stress.
Massaging your scalp daily stimulates hair growth.  You can do this with a mask such as Pureology Superfood or serum in your hair. Not only does this method nourish your hair it also helps relieve stress and tension.
If you’re not comfortable doing this yourself (or you just want to treat yourself), one of our juniors is always on hand to give you a treatment, massage and blowdry.

3. CASTOR OIL

The ricinoleic acid in castor oil helps lock in moisture while promoting a clean and healthy scalp – all of which are essential to hair growth and protects against hair loss.
Massaging pure castor oil into your scalp weekly, before washing your hair, to stimulate healthy hair growth.

4. FREQUENT TRIMS

There’s no point having long hair if your ends are split and look unhealthy. If you want long, healthy hair then frequent trims are non-negotiable.
Living with frayed split ends will eventually cause your hair to break further up the strand, making your hair look thinner and stopping it growing past a certain point.

5. RINSE WITH COLD WATER WHEN WASHING YOUR HAIR.

6. AVOID HEAT TOOLS AND STYLING.

7. BRUSH GENTLY.

8. USE A SILK PILLOWCASE.

9. DRY YOUR HAIR WITH A MICROFIBRE HAIR TOWEL.

10. STRETCH OUT YOUR HAIR COLOUR APPOINTMENTS.

Consistently put into practice the tips above and your hair will reward you for the hard work.  If you have any further questions about a lack of hair growth or hair loss, chat with one of our stylist during your next salon visit.
