How To Stimulate Hair Growth

1. Massage Your Scalp

Proper scalp blood circulation is essential for healthy hair growth. It has been proven that a scalp massage has beneficial effects on blood pressure, stress hormones, and heart rate.

A simple and easy way to promote hair growth naturally is to give yourself a scalp massage. This will enhance blood flow to your scalp, increase the strength of your roots, and assist nutrients in getting to your follicle faster.

An easy way to incorporate this into your routine is by taking a little extra time when washing your hair giving your scalp the TLC it deserves. You can also perform a scalp massage on dry hair. Adding a nutrient-rich serum to the mix will double the benefits. Maintain it once a week if you have an oily scalp.

2. Trim Your Hair Ends

Trimming your hair regularly (about every 6-8 weeks) helps with hair growth because it removes split ends and damaged hair, which can inhibit hair growth. When you trim your hair, you are getting rid of the damaged hair that is preventing healthy hair from growing. This allows for the hair to grow at a healthy rate. Additionally, regular trims can also improve the overall appearance and health of your hair.

3. Use Conditioner More Often Than Shampoo

The wrong shampoo and the overuse of shampoo can strip your hair of its natural oils, which can lead to dryness and weakness. To help keep your hair soft and strong, try not to shampoo more than twice a week and use a high quality ultra hydrating conditioner after every wash.

Instead of washing your hair with a shampoo, reach for your conditioner instead to help repair any damage to your locks, and gently cleanse without stripping away natural oils.

If you have an oily scalp, washing your hair every other day with the right shampoo will not cause hair shedding. For people with normal to dry scalps, washing your mane once to twice a week is recommended.

4. Use A Hair Mask Treatment

Try using a hair mask to improve the quality of your strands (stronger, thicker, shinier locks). A quality hair mask treatment can be a game changer if your hair is suffering from breakage, dryness, and/or damage.

Try Goldie Locks Ultra Hydrating Hair Mask! It contains biotin, ginseng, rose water, and marula oil, which are rich in vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants. They all work in harmony to restore hydration, strengthen strands, prevent damage, reduce frizz, and add intense shine without weighing hair down.

5. Avoid Tight Hairstyles

Hairstyles like buns, ponytails, pigtails, and cornrows can put a lot of stress on your hair strands, which can lead to traction alopecia.

To prevent damage, try to avoid tight hairstyles and mix up your look by switching between loose buns, ponytails, and other styles.

6. Add More Omega-3 Fatty Acids To Your Diet

Omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation and prevent hair loss. They can be found in foods like fish, poultry, seafood, whole grains, seeds, and nuts. You can also take omega-3 supplements if you are unable to get enough from your diet.

7. Take Hair Supplements

Healthy hair begins from within. But it’s important to note that not all hair supplements are created equal. Many hair supplements contain inflammation-producing ingredients such as sugar and corn syrup, while others lack important ingredients and blends that support healthy hair growth.

Hair supplements that are created with clean, effective ingredients such as Goldie Locks Hair Supplements, focus on the health of your hair and scalp.

Goldie Locks® Supplements are lab-tested and thoughtfully formulated with a powerful blend of all-natural ingredients to help not only promote longer, stronger, healthier hair- but also help to reduce stress, regulate mood, enhance energy levels, and improve scalp health.

8. Use A Leave-in Conditioner To Detangle Your Hair

Nothing will test your patience more than detangling knots in your hair; however, it is an essential process in growing your strands faster and shouldn't be rushed. Not taking adequate care when brushing can cause your strands to break off and split - literally the opposite of hair growth.

leave-in conditioner

Make sure you use an ultra hydrating leave-in conditioner to detangle your hair before gently combing with a wide-toothed comb or a paddle brush with rounded bristles, causing minimal damage. If using a paddle brush then we recommend turning the brush vertically so the hairs can glide gently through the rows of bristles.

9. Limit Your Heat Styling Tools Use

You're probably aware of this, but most hair stylists will tell you the easiest way to help your hair grow faster is to let go of your routine of hot tools. (Not what you want to hear, we know). Styling irons and blow dryers can cause damage to your hair by making it brittle and dry, which can result in breakage.

If you're looking to grow your hair, it is recommended you air-dry your hair and limit or avoid heat styling tools. If you need to use a heat styling tool then be sure to mist your hair with a heat protectant spray before styling.

10. Avoid Smoking

Smoking is entirely your choice, and we are not here to judge; however, we'd be lying if we said your hair is not affected in some way when you smoke. Smoking restrains blood flow to the scalp and follicles, which also hinders the vital oxygen and nutrients that your scalp and hair need to be healthy.

In addition, the toxins from smoking can seep into your hair follicles and cause disruption.

11. Sleep On A Silk Pillowcase

A satin or silk hair cover or pillowcase is more ideal for the health of your hair than cotton, which absorbs all the moisture from your strands and causes them to tangle and break. Though this won't necessarily speed up the hair growth process, sleeping with a satin hair cover or on a silk pillowcase generates less friction and gives your hair a softer surface to lay on. 

12. Protect Your Hair From The Sun

The sun's UV rays can damage your hair and cause it to become dry and brittle. To protect your hair, try to cover it up when you're out in the sun or use a leave-in conditioner with SPF.

The sun's UV rays can be damaging to hair and can prevent healthy hair growth. Excessive sun exposure can cause the hair cuticles to become dry and damaged, leading to dryness, discoloration, and loss of shine. The formation of free radicals can cause oxidative stress on hair and further damage.

Sun exposure can also dehydrate the hair and scalp, making them dry and flaky, which can prevent healthy hair growth and lead to hair breakage and hair loss. To protect your hair from the sun, it's important to use protective measures such as hats or scarves, sunscreen that is safe for and won’t discolor hair, or leave-in conditioners with UV protection.
