How to properly track your hair growth journey

How to properly track your hair growth journey

Have you heard the adage, “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey”? It’s a great saying, but sometimes it’s really about the destination—like when you’re growing out your hair. 

Anyone who’s attempted to grow out their hair with a certain length or look in mind knows that it can be frustrating. Sometimes those awkward stages are just too much, and you’re in the stylist’s chair before you know it and giving up on your dream of those long locks and lush curls.

A little encouragement and some progress tracking can be just what you need to stick to your hair goals and wait it out.

How to track hair growth

Acknowledging progress is rewarding. It can make all the difference between pushing on to the desired result or giving up in frustration. So how do you track your hair growth?

Old school hair tracking method

One tried, and true, method of tracking your hair growth has been around forever. All you need is a notebook to write down your progress and something to measure your hair with. 

Stretch a section of hair, and measure it from root to tip, and record the length. Measure regularly at the same spot to see how fast your hair grows. 

Of course, this may not be the most reliable way to measure your hair growth, as the information in a notebook can get disorganized. Be sure to record dates and details so that you don’t lose information. 

Seeing is believing

Another method people have used for quite a while is to take pictures of their hair and compare them over time. This is much easier now with digital cameras and cameras built into your phone, but considering our busy schedules, remembering to take a photo every day might be a bit of a challenge. 

If you can manage to schedule the photo at least every week or so, this one might work. Taking photos would also make it easier to create a collage where you can compare your progress.

Hair growth t-shirt

This one is definitely a much less practical way of tracking your hair as compared to the others, especially with the safe-at-home life. But, there’s no denying that this is a fun way, and it’s gaining popularity. 

Purchase a simple white t-shirt and have a friend mark where your hair length ends. In a week or a month, put that same shirt on and once again mark where your hair ends. It’s inspiring to actually see the growth. 

Hair color

Now, this last one isn’t for those with natural hair color, but if you’ve got one of the hot new hair colors, or if you’re looking to add some color to your life, this one might be the one for you. 

As another way to visually see your hair growth, have your hairstylist work with you to create an ombre hair color that will show your roots as they grow out, all while looking incredible the whole time. 

New Hair La Vie hair tracking method

At Hair La Vie, we wanted to be innovative and come up with a way to track hair growth that was easier and more informative. It was with this mission that HLV+Me was created. 

Now there’s a place where you can keep track of daily journal entries, photos, measurements, and more. Not only do you get a great place to track your hair progress, but there’s also access to critical information that gives the HLV Lengthening Hair Journey its success. Secrets and expert hair techniques will help you fine-tune your efforts, so nothing goes to waste, and you can stay laser-focused on getting the hair you’ve always wanted. 

Grow hair even faster

Growing your hair takes a long time, and it can be frustrating, but you can speed up that process and make your hair healthier at the same time. 

Hair La Vie Clinical Hair Vitamins are an important part of a successful hair growth regimen. They feature a proprietary blend of all-natural ingredients that were chosen specifically because of their power to promote growth and the health of your scalp, root, and hair strands. 

When your hair is healthier from root to tip, you’re less likely to lose hair due to breakage or premature loosening. This means your hair will grow thicker and longer.

Final thoughts

Growing your hair out is something most people have considered or attempted at least once in their lives. Your hair grows, on average, about a half-inch a month. You can help your hair grow healthier and faster by focusing on scalp and hair health. This is done with proper nutrition and supplements.

To make your hair growth journey more rewarding, and to help you stay committed, try measuring your hair so you can see the progress you’re making. 

While there are a few different ways to measure your hair and keep track, the HLV+Me portal helps you keep all of that data in one handy place while giving you the inspiration you need to keep going. This can make all the difference between giving up or sticking it out and achieving the hair of your dreams.
