Why Won’t My Hair Grow??

Why Won’t My Hair Grow??

Short hair, don’t care—except it’s not growing? 

 

 

If your locks are moving at a pace that would make a sloth proud, here are 7 culprits that might be slowing you down and how to break through for hair that truly thrives! 


1. POOR DIET

Poor diet doesn't just harm your body and mood; it can also slow hair growth and even cause hair loss. Diets high in fat and sugar can throw off blood sugar and insulin levels, which, in turn, affect the oxygen flow to your scalp and hair follicles.

To keep your hair healthy and vibrant, nourish yourself with a diet rich in iron, vitamin D, zinc, B-complex vitamins, and collagen. And for that added boost, toss in a B-complex vitamin with Biotin.

 

2. STRESS

Stress happens, but it doesn’t have to be your normal. Both emotional and physical stress are linked to hair loss or telogen effluvium, where more hair follicles go into a resting phase, making it seem like your hair isn't growing or is falling out faster.

Counter this by reframing thoughts and finding ways to unwind—try deep breathing, meditation, or engaging in exercises you enjoy. It'll help keep your mind calm and promote healthy hair growth. Keeping stress at bay can do wonders, Chic!

 

3. HEAT STYLING

Frequent heat styling with tools like straighteners and curling irons, can harm your hair, weaken it, and lead to breakage. Excessive heat can speed up damage and make it seem like your hair isn't growing as it should, when, in reality, your hair strands are continually breaking.

Whenever possible, choose heat-free styling methods, and when you do use hot tools, be sure to use heat protectants. These protectants coat your strands and create a protective shield between your hair and the stress of the heat.

 

4. CHEMICAL TREATMENTS 

Frequent use of harsh chemicals like dyes, perms, and relaxers can weaken your locks and put the brakes on growth. These treatments strip away natural oils and roughen the outer cuticle, leaving hair prone to damage.

To take better care of your tresses, cut back on chemical treatments and opt for gentler, natural alternatives when you can. Your tresses will thank you!

 

5. SMOKING 

Smoking can hinder growth by causing oxidative stress and reducing blood flow in the body, particularly to your hair follicles.

The good news is that quitting smoking improves circulation within minutes, leading to better and faster hair growth. Embracing a diet rich in vitamins and antioxidants also aids in repairing some of the damage and promoting overall well-being.

 

6. NOT TAKING CARE OF YOUR SCALP

A healthy scalp is just like fertile soil! Neglecting proper scalp care, such as infrequent cleansing or using harsh shampoos, can lead to clogged follicles and slower growth.

Why not switch to a mild shampoo and treat yourself to scalp massages that boost circulation? Avoid products with irritants and make it a routine to keep your scalp clean and well-conditioned.

 

7. LACK OF HYDRATION

To keep your hair healthy, keep yourself well-hydrated. Dehydration can affect the overall health of your hair and hinder its growth, so make sure you're drinking enough water daily. How does three liters a day sound?

In addition to your regular water intake, you might also consider incorporating hydrating foods into your diet, like cucumbers, watermelon, and oranges.



IN A NUTSHELL 

Getting those gorgeous, long locks takes a little TLC. But, hey, it's all worth it! Steer clear of these growth-slowing habits, keep your hair care balanced, and trust the process. Sticking to it is key to long, luscious locks!
