13 steps to embracing hair revival as a statement of you

13 steps to embracing hair revival as a statement of you

Hair loss, burned scalp, fried and brittle strands, even a horrible haircut. Unfortunately, these are all too common complaints that can leave you looking less than your best and feeling even worse.

The good news is that many of these issues can be overcome with some proper scalp and hair care. It will take time, but with proper care, you can return your locks to their previous glory.

Repairing damaged hair

You’ve been left with a less than flattering “do,” and now all you want to do is turn back the clock to before the tragic incident. While that’s not possible, the following tips will help you move in the right direction.

1. Love it

You hate the way your hair looks. Some of it may be damaged beyond repair or you might even have some hair loss. It’s okay to be upset about that, but being upset isn’t going to fix it. 

Once you’re over the pain, find a new stylist and explain the situation. Ask them to help you make the most of a new look. A new, trendy cut can help mask your hair woes and make you feel better about yourself.

2. Be realistic

Hair grows, on average, about six inches a year, that’s a half-inch a month. Most likely, you’ve had to part with the damaged hair or you’ve lost hair so it’s not the length it was. 

Having realistic growth goals makes the process easier. This is a time to embrace a new look and make a statement.

3. Nutrition and hydration

All the things you’re supposed to be doing to be healthy are the things you should be doing to have great hair. Encourage healthy hair growth by eating right and hydrating constantly. 

If you feel your diet isn’t quite what it should be, supplement it with vitamins designed specifically for hair growth. Hair La Vie Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins give you a leg up on hair regrowth.

4. Focus on your scalp

Your hair grows from follicles on your scalp. Everybody knows that, but few people embrace their scalp’s vital role in healthy hair. A good scalp massage should become a daily habit to encourage circulation and regrowth. Continue the care with gentle hair care products.

5. Hair masks

Hair masks with high concentrations of minerals, vitamins, oils, and naturally sourced elements are designed to promote thick and lush hair. They can also do wonders for people trying to regrow hair. 

6. Watch it when wet

Wet hair is incredibly stretchy, so it falsely appears to be really strong–it’s not. Your hair is most vulnerable when wet, which is why it’s important to dry your hair after a nighttime shower. Be extra careful combing and styling your hair. Baby it when it’s wet, to keep it safe.

7. Only the best

Research your products and make sure you’re using only the best stuff for your hair and scalp. You deserve it, and your hair will thank you for it. 

How to revive your hair faster

Those are the do’s of regrowing and reviving your hair, now for the don’ts. The difficult part of the process is going to be waiting because there is no miracle cure. These don’ts will help your hair heal faster.

8. No heat

Avoid hot blow dryers and curling irons. 

9. Don’t skip the sunscreen

Protect your remaining hair and your scalp from sun damage by always using sunscreen. Look for sunscreen products specifically designed for your hair and scalp.

10. Don’t shampoo (as much)

Try using shampoo every other day or skipping it altogether and using the co-wash method. Allow your hair’s sebum to regulate itself.

11. No elastic bands

Pulling your hair back or opting for an updo when growing back hair is a smart idea if you’re using the right products. Look for damage-free hair ties.

12. Don’t be afraid of a cut

Regular trims and split-end dusting help work out the damaged hair while supporting new growth.

13. A rinse is not enough

Add extra moisture and protection to your hair every single time you shower by using a conditioner. Consider using a leave-in conditioner, too.

Final thoughts

If you’re dealing with a botched hairdo or some hair loss, there are things you can do to revive your hair and begin the regrowth process. In the meantime, the best thing you can do is find a new style that shows off your personality and lets you be you while your hair recovers.

During the recovery process, make sure to baby your hair with only quality products, no heat, no elastic bands, and extra focus on hydration and nutrition. It will take time, but you can recover, and in the meantime, try some of those cute, short hairstyles you’ve always wondered about.
