Do you ever feel like your hair takes almost an eternity to grow out? This is a very common issue that many people struggle with. Don’t worry, we’re here to provide some simple, yet effective tips on how to trigger hair growth with just a few habit changes.
CONSUME ENOUGH VITAMINS AND NUTRIENTS
A lack of vitamins and nutrients might be a cause of slowed-down hair growth. A balanced diet of Folic Acid, Biotin, Vitamins E, A, D, and C all contribute to healthy hair growth. If you’re not getting them in your foods, then you should definitely consider supplements.
KNOW WHAT INGREDIENTS TO AVOID IN YOUR HAIR CARE PRODUCTS
A smart consumer like yourself should know by now that the shampoo and conditioner you use should be free of sulfates. Sulfates will strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving hair your extremely brittle over time. Try out our Replenishing Hair Cleanser and Replenishing Cream Conditioner to keep hair moisturized and refreshed without drying it out. Pai-Shau is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben and sulfate free!
GET A TRIM REGULARLY
You might think this is counterproductive, but getting a trim, or “dusting,” is essential in growing out your hair. You should be getting a trim at least every 10 to 12 weeks. This will prevent your hair from getting split ends, which are culprits in what keep your hair length from growing. Frayed ends will cause your hair to break up farther and it will not get longer past a certain point.
AVOID HEAT STYLING TOOLS
Heat damage will slow down the process of growing out your hair. There’s nothing wrong with leaving your hair natural for a while - embrace it! If you’re worried about frizz, Pai-Shau Something To BeLeave-In and Biphasic Infusion will help defrizz that mane. While using heat styling tools, try and avoid putting the temperature all the way to 450 degrees. Just because it goes that high, doesn’t mean you should be using it. If you must use those heating tools, make sure you’re using a heat protectant, like Pai-Shau Something To BeLeave-In.
STOP AGGRESSIVELY DRYING/BRUSHING
Always treat your hair delicately and never be harsh. When brushing, use a boar bristle brush, and make sure you are starting from the bottom, slowly working your way up. Use a microfiber towel and silk pillowcase to prevent your hair from breaking due to friction. Another major habit to avoid is putting your hair up in a tight ponytail.
HYDRATE YOUR HAIR
Don’t forget to give your hair some extra hydration! Simply using conditioner a few times a week is not enough, especially if you’re in a cooler climate. Hair growth could be delayed because your ends are not fully moisturized. Using a hair serum daily and a mask once a week will ensure that your hair stays healthy and strong. We recommend Pai-Shau’s Biphasic Infusion and Supreme Revitalizing Mask for ultimate hydration.
Pai-Shau’s Signature Tea Complex, a blend of five steeped teas, provides many benefits to your scalp and hair. For the scalp, the teas stimulate circulation, speed up hair growth, and reduce inflammation. The green tea in our Signature Tea Complex is the key ingredient to faster hair growth. It will help clear hair follicles of debris, aiding speedy growth.
