we all lust for long silky hair à la kim k circa now, but achieving this sans-extensions can be a tedious process. while products help to repair and prevent damage, they can only do so much. the real ‘root’ of the problem (pun intended) lies on the scalp. make sure you’re giving your scalp and bod extra TLC for guaranteed hair growth…

here are a few tips for achieving healthy, luscious locks

tip #1: promote circulation. massaging the scalp helps with blood flow, which stimulates the hair follicle to make it grow faster. try using a conditioning oil treatment while massaging.

tip #2: scalp therapy. think of this treatment as a facial for your hair. it removes dead skin cells and excess sebum to help renew.

tip #3: chill out. stress is a bitch, especially when it comes to hair loss. implement yoga and meditation into your life and shoot for 8 hours of sleep.

tip #4: supplements. along with maintaining a balanced diet, vitamin C, biotin (vitamin B7 or vitamin H) and niacin (vitamin B3) provide the nutrients needed for hair growth.

tip #5: leave it alone when wet. your hair is in its most fragile state and prone to breakage post-shower, so steer clear from using a brush until its had a chance to air dry. we recommend using a turbie twist made of super absorbent microfiber. it’s much gentler on the hair and significantly reduces drying time.
