Solution? You can try loser hairstyles, or buy secure wigs that won’t stress your hairline. Be prepared to wear wigs for the next 6 months at least, while you grow your hair.
Start Daily Hair Massages
Start massaging your scalp at night daily. Massaging stimulates blood circulation to your hair follicles which is needed to grow your hair. Vitamin E, peppermint oil and cold-pressed castor oil are my weapons of choice. Read more about them here.
Start Washing Your Hair More
Healthier scalp leads to healthier hair. You need to make sure that your hair follicles are not clogged up. Once you’ve used a good clarifying soap or shampoo, condition your hair well.
Start sleeping on a satin/silk pillowcase.
Satin and silk cause less friction than cotton, that’s less breakage on your edges.
Less breakage = stronger hair.
Make sure your hair is covered in a silk or satin bonnet when you sleep.
Start Taking Care of Your Health
Consult your doctor about taking MSM and Vitamin C. If your doctor agrees, these supplements can have a positive impact on your hair growth. MSM, methylsulfonylmethane, is a sulfur-based compound that is naturally found in many of the foods we consume. Think milk, onion even green leafy veggies. After salt, it’s the largest compound found in the body and is needed for building healthy bones, hair and nails.
Another issue we don’t talk about often enough is mental health. Are you stressed, anxious or maybe feeling depressed? Unhealthy mental environments don’t just affect your overall health, but the health of your hair too. Speak to people. Focus on your inner well-being and remember that you deserve to be happy, you deserve good things and you are absolutely worth it.
