Short hair for summer can be a convenient way to stay cool – nothing feels better than cold water or a cool breeze passing over your scalp on a hot day! But for those desiring longer styles, growing hair out can be more difficult for some than others. To encourage the growth process and get the best results, Angela Stevens, our Senior Creative and Education Advisor, recommends adding a few basic practices that anyone can incorporate into their styling and grooming regimen to promote healthy hair growth from the inside out.
Brushing the hair regularly increases the blood flow in the scalp which promotes hair growth. Increasing your daily water intake significantly also helps stimulate hair growth by hydrating your cuticle from the inside, keeping hair from becoming brittle and susceptible to breakage.
Taking vitamins A and D are also very beneficial to enhancing hair thickness and growth, in addition to taking supplements like biotin and prenatal vitamins for added strength.
