trimming split endsDo you want longer, healthier hair? Having long locks can open up a world of opportunities for styling and hair management!

Whether you desire beachy waves or a fashionable up-do, many people are looking to grow out their hair. If you’re ready to start the process, here are a few ways to promote healthy hair growth.

1. Get More Vitamin B

Natural ingredients can help promote hair growth. Vitamin B is one great nutrient to add to your diet. It produces red blood cells that carry oxygen to your hair follicles, so they can generate new hair!

Biotin, part of the Vitamin B family, also plays an important role in maintaining hair health. It stimulates keratin production that works to increase the rate of hair growth.

Vitamin B can be found in many common foods, including brown rice, red meat, beans and avocados. You can also take a Vitamin B supplement or multivitamin that contains this vital nutrient.

2. Take Care of Your Scalp

When it comes to hair care, always remember your scalp! Massaging it a few times a week can help stimulate hair follicles and increase blood circulation. When massaging your scalp, incorporating essential oils made from natural ingredients can also help stimulate growth.

Castor oil is a great option because it contains omega-9 fatty acids and Vitamin E that help promote hair growth. You can also try lavender oil, which can speed up growth due to properties that generate the production of your cells.

Ask your stylist which essential oils are recommended for your hair type!

3. Regularly Trim Split Ends

Split ends occur when the ends of your hair become dry and brittle. Although split ends do not stop growth, they can cause your hair to break off and make it seem as though it’s no longer growing.

If left untreated, split ends can work up the shaft of your hair strands and cause additional damage. To prevent this, get a trim every 4 to 6 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. Talk with your stylist to see what haircut schedule works best for you.
