Beginning your journey

Beginning your journey

Waiting for your hair to grow can feel like watching a pot of water boil. It seems like it’s never going to happen and it’s certainly not going to happen fast enough. But you know, deep down inside, that eventually your hair will grow, and the water will boil.

As someone who routinely gets bored with her hair and on a whim donates it all; only to begin growing out that cute, short style the next week – I understand how tedious the process of growing hair can be. The frustration of never quite having the look you want and wearing endless ponytails to manage those awkward stages.

That’s why I’m really excited to share with you some changes you can make that will help you speed through the process of growing your hair. Not only that, but they’re also healthy lifestyle choices that are great for your entire body, not just your hair. So, let’s get started and learn more about growing your hair.

The road ahead

During this journey, you will learn how to grow long, lush hair by nourishing it properly from the roots to the ends. And by nourish I mean adding lots of moisture, taking supplements designed for hair growth, eating some different foods, and changing your hair washing routine.

It’s time to give your scalp a lot of attention because let’s face it, we really never did before and it’s a key part of the hair growing process. Part of this will be re-learning how to shower in a way that is geared toward supporting your hair and scalp, not just getting a quick clean.

New techniques

You’ll also be learning scalp massage techniques and hair pulling, which might become your favorite part of the entire process. Both of these steps feel amazing and flood your scalp and hair with nutrient-rich blood that rushes the hair growing process along.

If you’re adventurous, there are some yoga poses you can try that focus on hair growth, blood circulation, and relaxation. Be warned, while some are easy enough for anyone to do, some of them require a lot of skill. But if you can accomplish all of them, I think you’re safe in declaring yourself a hair yoga master.

Something I really struggle with while growing my hair is the reliance on ponytails. This is why we’ve included some great hairstyle tips for every stage of hair growth.

Did you know that the elastic bands you use to tie your hair back are actually working against your hair goals? They weaken your hair and eventually cause breakage when used too much in the same spots.

Learning how to eat

One of my favorite parts of this journey was learning how to eat to fuel my hair. At first, I wasn’t really sure about changing my diet, but I found that I really like a lot of the foods that support hair health and I feel good about them because they’re packed with minerals and vitamins your body needs anyway.

This Gluten-Free Lentil Salad is a perfect example of a recipe that I never would have tried before, but I found I really like it. And it’s great for my hair. It also fits in with my diet, giving me a filling meal that’s not high in calories.

Final thoughts

Finally, throughout this process, we use natural haircare products that are designed to support your hair in the long run. Too many products give you great results for the moment but cause serious damage to your hair that can defeat your long hair goals.

If you’re serious about wanting healthy, luxurious, long hair then this journey will help you get there, and it will speed up the process. It’s definitely worth it because you’re going to love the results.
