Hair, just like every other part of our body, needs constant care. In fact, hair grows with about half an inch per month. You have seen many products that promise to make your hair longer and stronger. But in order to achieve your wish, you need to pay more attention to your hair and put it under the right treatment.
One of the most important steps when trying to grow your hair is not to forget to cut the dead ends on every 6-8 weeks.

If you trim your hair regularly, it will become stronger and it will reduce split ends. The amount of hair that needs to be cut off is about half to one inch.

Another secret you might not know is that the coldest the water you wash your hair with is – the better. Cold water makes your hair look more shiny and healthy. Hot water makes it susceptible to breaking. Also, using conditioner while you shower is a must!

After massaging your hair with an oil mask, you will feel the difference immediately. You hair will feel more strong, thick and soft. You can buy the perfect product from a store, or you can also make it at home. Any kind of oil you like will make wonders with your hair. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil, anything you like.
It is very important to minimize the use of heating products, such as hair straighteners, blow dryers, curling irons and etc. They cause a huge damage on your hair and you should try to use them as seldom as possible. But when you do, it is very important to use hair serums, in order to protect your hair from the heat.
Over brushing also causes damage on your hair. Once or twice a day is enough, unless it is really necessary. When you go out of the shower and your hair is wet, you must not brush it. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb.
