4 Secrets to Growing Luscious Locks

Whether you’re recovering from a botched ’do or you simply aspire to the locks of a fairy-tale heroine, growing out your hair can be a long, laborious process. The good news is that there are lifestyle changes you can make to expedite the growth. Here are four tried-and-true tips for longer, healthier hair.

Stock Up on Super Foods

Your diet has a major influence on your hair. Eating certain foods can leave your hair thicker, richer, fuller and healthier. For more lustrous locks, experts advise stocking up on eggs (a rich protein source), oysters (they’re full of zinc, which helps with hair loss) and carrots (they’re high in vitamin A, which keeps your hair healthy and hydrated). Other grocery-list must-haves: lentils, dark green veggies and salmon.

Sleep on Satin

Wearing your hair pulled up in a ponytail or bun can be damaging. It’s also ill-advised to sleep on a cotton pillowcase. Switching to a satin option can cause fewer tangles and result in much healthier hair long term.

For a glamorous option, try a SLIP Silk Pillowcase.


Get Regular Trims

Hair grows roughly a half-inch each month. It can be tempting to skip regular trims — especially if it involves losing some of your length — but it’s wise to get a snip every three to four months. A great stylist can help you through the grow-out process by cutting only the dead ends, which should result in healthier-looking hair in the long run.

Try a Supplement

Although there’s no proof that hair-growth pills work, some people do experience a difference when they take a regular supplement designed to support healthier hair. One of the most well-known supplements on the market is biotin. Another option is fermented cod liver oils. These are rich in omega-3s, which support hair growth.

Try Country Life Biotin and Blue Ice Fermented Cod Liver Oil.

      • Fuck Monat

        DO NOT use Monat it made me lose so much hair, i list chunks of it. thus stuff is bull shit these ppl will rot in hell. Literally the stuff caused my hair to fall out everywhere and the only thing those fuxkers would tell me is that it was “detoxing” my hair. no shampoo should make your hair fall out ever!

    I have been losing my hair as well. It has been falling out for a few years. It is really depressing. Seems I have tried everything too! Went to a dermatologist. She suggests ketaconazole and spironolactone due to fungus on scalp and hormonal issues. I don’t like the thoughts of either one…or Rogaine. My once curly hair is starting to lose it’s curl too.

      I am having the same problems. My hair has been thinning and it’s loosing its natural curl. I’ve tried taking supplements and vitamins but it’s not helping.

    My hair started falling out when I went perimenopausal.. it was horrible it was falling out by the chunks I was also a victim of too much hair drying to straighten my very thick wavy curly hair.. their hair coloring products we use are also very bad. I don’t wash my hair as much as I used to.. be sure to leave a little bit of the conditioner in the hair so you could leave some moisture in the hair if you do dry you hair using heat.. it will will form some protection.. I noticed a change and I started using hair rollers. From Time to time to change my look from wavy to straight II let the curl curlers out I then brush the hair and wrap it around my head and tie it with a satin scarf.. to give the hair less of those roller hair bumps.. the hair comes out very nice you can get a bonnet to attach to the hair blower to dry you hair this way with out pulling some of these changes that I made have made a difference to my hair length. Unfortunately,as we get older the hair also changes…

      Make sure you pay close attention to the chemicals that are in the shampoo that you’re using. Avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate like the plague!!!
