But long black tresses are something that never goes out of vogue. Sure, highlights and dyed hair are cool, but nothing screams class like healthy, lustrous long black hair. But thanks to pollution and chemical infused products, it is most likely that your hair strands will get damaged to death before even crossing your shoulder. And that is where this article becomes your saviour because below are the four most useful tips listed to help you grow long black hair!
Patience During The Hair Growth Cycle to Get Long Black Hair
If you have trimmed your hair recently, then it is time to test your patience to grow back that long black hair. So, how long does it take for hair to grow back? Human hair grows an average 0.5 inches per month, which is equivalent to 15 centimeters (6 inches) a year. Age, diet and genetics are a few factors that uniquely affect this growth rate. Hair growth occurs in three stages, first being the anagen phase where the most amount of growth occurs. The longer your hair stays in that phase, the quicker and better are the growth.
This stage lasts an average of 3-5 years. This phase is followed by the catagen phase- a short transitional phase that lasts around ten days. The terminal phase is the telogen phase, a resting stage when your hair is released, and it falls out.
Fun fact: Each hair follicle grows independently and undergoes the different stages at different times. Or else all of your hair would shed at once! So be a little patient and your dream of long black hair shall oblige.
For The Curly Beauties
As curls make hair appear shorter in length than it actually is, it is specifically more difficult to get your hair grow longer if you have curly hair. But for that one desire of healthy long black hair, be sure to follow a regular hair care routine, uniquely made for curly hair. So, how to get healthy curly hair back? Here are some remedies:
- Experts agree that curly hair shouldn’t be washed with shampoos that contain sulfates, polymers, and parabens, which can strip hair of its natural oils and lead to build-up at the follicle that can slow down growth.
- It is necessary to keep away from heat styling. In case you need to blow-dry, use a diffuser to keep your curls in shape.
- Tying your hair up in a low ponytail or braid before going to bed also helps your curls to grow longer and stronger.
You probably never imagined how your piping hot cuppa could take you several steps further towards your dream of shiny, long black hair. Tea is a readily available commodity in every household, but a lesser known fact about it is that it promotes hair growth immensely. Green tea, black tea, and Rooibos are all effective tea that grows your hair and add up to its nourishment. Here are the ways how:
- According to a study conducted by Korean scientists, a compound called EGGG which is found in green tea can stimulate hair production.
- Tea can balance the pH levels of the scalp, allowing it to naturally produce the oils essential for the well-being of your strands.
- Massaging your scalp daily with freshly brewed tea increases blood circulation, which stimulates hair growth.
- Also, the antiseptic properties of tea help removing dead skin cells and impurities that may block the hair follicles, thus preventing clogging and helping hair to grow back faster.
