Hey everyone! I'm Portrait in this video I'm going to give you some tips on how to grow long healthy hair! The first tip which goes without saying, is drinking water If you are not drinking at least 8 cups of water a day, start by increasing your daily intake
You will see a difference in your hair, skin and nails Use the right tools for your hair Do not use a small tooth comb to detangle your hair because that will result in breakage Please use a wide tooth comb and detangle your hair starting from your end to your roots Do not detangle your hair when it is dry because it can cause spit ends
Limit the use of synthetic oils on your hair Anything that's not a naturally plant derived oil, I avoid its use Synthetic oils tends to clog the pores on your scalp Eventually causing hair fall and decrease of hair growth I only use natural products on my hair and natural oils
Especially when I am doing hot oil treatments If it is not 100% pure oil I am not applying it to my hair I avoid the use of mineral oil Every night before I go to bed, I massage my scalp with a stimulating hair oil and you never want to use your finger nails while you are massaging your scalp
You should use the cushions of your fingertips and gently massage your scalp If your braids are too tight, take them out If your ponytail is too tight, take that out! Too much tension will eventually cause hair breakage on your edges and around the perimeter of your head Especially if you are wearing ponytails Tension plus friction, equals breakage
Protect your edges! Keeping your edges moisturized is key! If your are not keeping your ends moisturized, then you will have split ends If you are not keeping up with the moisture of your hair, then you will have to get trims more often It will not look like there will be a difference of hair growth because you are not retaining your length Make sure that you are using products that work well for your hair type So overall, paying attention to your hair and finding a routine that works for you is key
