To grow hair faster one must investigate the ingredients of the products used in your tresses.
Do you find your hair very dry after a shampoo? This should not be.
You may be using a shampoo that is too harsh, meaning… your shampoo is drying out your hair also known as stripping your hair of necessary oils. This alone will hinder its growth, as our hair need a balance moisture level to achieve growth.
Hopefully after reading this you will take a closer look at the ingredients in your shampoo… as all shampoos are NOT made equal.
Why not go for a gentler cleanser, one that is sulphate-free.
Tip of the Day – Make sure your Shampoo is Sulfate-Free
What is Sulfate?
Sulfates are chemicals placed in shampoos and other household cleaning products. When placed in contact with water it creates a rich lather to remove crease and dirt.
Sulfate is a harsh degreaser commonly used by manufacturing companies in their heavy-duty cleaning. However, this harsh chemical only serves to dry out or strip our hair.
Although medical science has proven sulfates to endanger our health; there are no proven research at present linking it to cancer. Hence it is still present in many of the products that we use. It is up to us to do our due diligence.
When choosing a shampoo look for shampoos that are sulfate free and gentle cleansing. Shampoos that are sulfate free will always indicate this on the front of the bottle as 'Sulfate Free'. This helps them stand out from other shampoos on the shelves.
If you tend to have dryer hair… It's always best to use a shampoo that is not only sulfate free but also infuses your hair with moisture and nutrients. This followed by a hydrating conditioner that will enrich your hair with Rich Vitamin A and Red Algae to combat free radicals and promote manageability and shine. If your routine includes a shampoo and conditioner that fulfills the above, your hair will be left healthier and you will experience faster hair growth.
Last but NOT Least…
You will need a versatile, nourishing, residue-free leave in treatment that blends perfectly with other products. A leave in treatment that will repair the hair while adding lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. This treatment should absorb instantly into the hair to fill in gaps created by heat, styling and environmental damage.
So throw out the sulphate shampoos and begin a healthier hair journey. A journey to faster growing hair.
