1. If you get split ends, it’s important to trim 2-3mm of your hair once every two or three months. Only then can your hair grow out while still looking decent.
Make sure the hairdresser knows how much you want to trim and doesn’t overdo it. Better yet, do it yourself. Twist each lock into a spiral, then use scissors to cut off split ends.
2. Have hair lamination done if possible. Bio lamination will prevent your hair from getting damaged. You will get split ends less often, and reduce breakage.
Hot scissors haircut can provide an effective solution. During the procedure, your hair tips will be “sealed”, preventing them from splitting. Hot scissors haircut is especially beneficial early on, while your hair isn’t growing very fast.
3. When growing out your hair, forget about heat styling and hot irons. It’s difficult to pull off, but it’s a necessary sacrifice.
If you can’t do without drying and styling your hair, get a hair dryer with ionization function and add thermal protectants to your beauty routine.
4. During the time you’re growing out your hair, forget about perms, and use a hair dye that doesn’t contain ammonia.
Use a gentle shampoo. Ideally the kind suitable for everyday use. The softer your shampoo is, the less damage it will cause to your hair, helping it grow faster.
5. Avoid stress as much as possible. Stress, depression, and intense negative emotions can easily cause excessive hair shedding and make your hair follicles go into a “sleeping state.”
As a result, the ratio of growing hair and sleeping hair falls out of balance, and your hair might stop growing completely.
