If you’ve ever suffered from a bad haircut or gotten a post-breakup fringe that definitely doesn’t suit your face, you’ve probably found yourself in a Google spiral searching “how to grow hair fast”.
Protect your hair
When trying to grow your hair, it’s essential to protect your hair from physical damage. This doesn’t necessarily encourage growth, but it will preserve the length you already have and prevent unnecessary breakages or damage. Be mindful of how you wash your hair and treat it when wet. We’ve all (hopefully) heard that you shouldn’t brush your hair while it’s still wet, or at least use a wide-tooth comb and be gentle!
Try to stay away from heat treatments wherever possible, or if you can’t face the outside world without a blow-dry, at least use a cooler setting. The same goes for your straightener — is it not necessary to have your straightener set to 200°C. You might even consider wearing a protective style to keep your hair protected while growing it out.
Keep your hair healthy & strong by increasing your nutrient intake
Healthy and strong hair is beautiful hair (and grows better)! Ensure your hair health by taking VitaminMe Hair Growth + Strength, which features Biotin, Kelp, and Zinc. Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin that stimulates keratin production (a protein that makes up the hair, skin, and nails). It also improves the infrastructure of cells and increases the rate of follicle growth. Kelp is a type of seaweed used as a source of various salts and is included in this product for its naturally high iodine content (which is essential for hair regeneration and aids thyroid regulation); while the kelp itself — which is ten times higher in calcium than milk — strengthens hair and prevents breakage.
Zinc plays a major role in the functioning of a healthy immune system, helping the body’s defence cells to counteract infection and regulate immune responses. Due to its contribution to the metabolism of critical micronutrients such as Vitamin A, Zinc also promotes general skin integrity and the growth of bones, nails, and hair.
Additionally, the following vitamins and nutrients are also responsible for growing strong and healthy hair:
- Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C)
- Folic Acid
Luckily, all of the above are also present in VitaminMe Hair Growth + Strength, so you won’t need to scour the shelves for dozens of different medications.
