Many women who love long hair find their locks grow slower as they age. That may be true: over the years our metabolism slows down and with it our hair growth. It is also common for women to color their hair later in life, causing it to become damaged, grow less quickly or break down.
Stimulate blood flow
One way to promote hair growth a bit is to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. This can be done in various ways, for example by a gentle massage with a combination of oils. For example, opt for pure argan oil with a few drops of rosemary and peppermint oil. Gently massage the scalp with circular movements of the fingertips. Rinse the oil afterwards with a mild shampoo.
Choose healthy food
Just like our skin, our hair requires important nutrients to stay healthy, such as proteins, vitamins and minerals, which we can get in part from our diet. Opt for a diet with plenty of eggs, fatty fish, nuts and legumes, fresh fruits and vegetables, garlic and onions.
Prevent dehydration and damage
Once our hair has grown beautifully long, it is important to prevent it from breaking due to dryness or damage. This means, among other things: do not wash the hair with too hot water, do not dry too roughly, do not comb or brush when it is wet and leave hot styling devices as much as possible. If you really want to color your hair, choose a color that is as natural and mild as possible and compensate with good care and protection.
Care for and protect your locks
Proper care and protection is essential to prevent long hair from being damaged by external factors or from becoming dry and brittle. Are you going to use a hot styling device? Then apply a protective layer with, for example, a hair serum or natural oil. Have you colored your locks anyway? Then make sure you pamper them regularly with a hair mask. This way the color also stays beautiful for longer. The ends of your hair are the oldest and most brittle. Always care and protect it with a few drops of natural oil.
Pamper your hair with oil
Pure, organic argan oil is one of the best gifts for your long locks. It is particularly rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants. Together they repair damage, help protect your hair, retain moisture and add a beautiful shine. This light oil absorbs quickly and is suitable for all kinds of applications, such as a blood circulation-promoting head massage, as protection against heat and dehydration, as a serum for your hair ends and as an ingredient nourishing mask. Spread it all over your hair and wrap it with plastic wrap or a towel. Due to the heat, the oil penetrates even deeper into the hair. You can even leave it on overnight and wash it the next day with a mild shampoo.
Long live your locks!
As we get older, our hair grows less quickly. It also does not recover as quickly from any damage and can become dry and brittle. Would you still like long, healthy locks? Then follow the tips above to protect, care for and restore them in a gentle and natural way. Also, don’t forget that a healthy lifestyle is also very important for healthy, long hair. What do you do to keep your hair nice and long?
