tips for long hair

I’m often asked about the secret of my long hair.  


Firstly, I’d like to thank my genetics, as it decides how long your hair will grow, no matter how much you try. However, that’s not the whole story! 


In this blog, I’ll share six tips that I follow to achieve my long hair goals. 


Tips for long hair 


Here they are.


  • Nourishing from the inside out


The first thing I do is focus on my diet. I opt for easily digestible foods to maintain good digestion and elimination. 


What we eat can significantly impact hair health. Choosing easily digestible foods is a great start. A well-functioning digestive system ensures your body can absorb essential nutrients for healthy hair growth. 


  • Handling with care


I always try to be gentle while handling my hair, especially while drying it after washing and detangling. 


Treating your hair gently is crucial, especially when it’s wet, as it is more delicate and prone to damage. Avoid aggressively rubbing your hair to dry it. Instead, use a soft towel and gently blot out the excess water. 


  • Trimming the ends


I make sure to trim the ends of my hair once a month without fail. This helps remove split ends and promotes healthier, faster hair growth. 


  • Keeping the scalp clean


I wash my hair 2-3 times a week. Daily washing can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and breakage. 


It is essential to maintain a clean scalp to allow your hair follicles to breathe, promoting better growth. 


  • Using hair oil and hair scrub


Another thing I do to maintain my hair health is using hair oil and hair scrub before every wash.  


Before washing my hair, I always apply Dr. Rekha Ayurvedic Hair Oil, which contains all-natural ingredients that nourish the scalp and boost hair growth. I also use Dr. Rekha Ayurvedic Hair Scrub to exfoliate my scalp. The ingredients in the scrub help maintain hair and scalp health, control hair fall, exfoliate the scalp, and rejuvenate hair, scalp, and skin. 


  • Braiding hair before sleep 


If you are from India, you might be familiar with your mother asking you to braid your hair before you sleep. Braiding not only prevents tangling but also minimizes damage caused by rubbing against your pillowcase. 


Remember to make loose braids, as tying your hair tightly can affect your hair health. 


Remember, patience is key when working toward your long hair goals. Results won’t happen overnight, but with consistent care and attention, you’ll be on your way to achieving your dream hair length.
