1. Trim Often
It may sound counterintuitive, but if you want long, healthy hair, you should have your hair trimmed regularly. “While cutting your hair may not make your hair grow faster, it does make sure you no longer have split ends that cause your hair to break. Removing these split ends makes it look like your hair is growing faster.” Because split ends can cause your hair to lose length, not to mention shine, volume, and smoothness.
Having long, strong hair doesn’t only depend on the products you put in your hair, but also on what you put in your body. “To promote hair growth, you need to ‘nourish’ the hair from the inside out. Try to increase your protein intake, with foods like fish, beans, nuts and whole grains.” If you don’t like meat, still make sure you maintain a high-protein diet. Studies have shown that women who don’t consume enough of it suffer more from hair loss. Foods high in protein also contain vitamins A, C, and E, minerals such as zinc and iron, and omega-3 fatty acids. These can all contribute to healthier hair.
