As we all know hair growth is a process and it needs patience. While keratin is a protein that makes up your hair, you aren’t likely deficient in it. Unlike biotin where it is more common to become deficient in it, There are vitamins out there that can help, but hair health is determined by 3 constituents that some of you might not know; Genetics, environment, and lifestyle. Those are not in order of priority as it’s been said, “Genetics load the gun but lifestyle pulls the trigger.” Starting with the overall healthy lifestyle for an internal approach is key the healthiness of your body hair and nails is effected from the inside out not only by the creams or masks you apply on your body or hair. Eat plenty of fibrous veggies, quality protein(both local when possible) and keep the junk food in moderation if you are unable to cut it out of your diet. Be active and outside as much as possible. Overall hygiene is important as a clean scalp is best for growing hair and massage it. Massaging your scalp helps the blood to rush to the roots and by that activate the small cells to produce more hair. Look for a sulfate free, plant-based shampoo. (L’occitane, Phyto, and Bumble & Bumble are great) Wash your hair everyday and especially after working up a sweat as DHT build up on your scalp will promote hair loss. The idea that you shouldn’t wash your hair every day comes from using low-quality products. if you use high quality you should be just fine.
Once you have the basics reached then you can look at things that will build off of them. Massaging your scalp or using a quality brush helps get blood their which will feed the follicles allowing them to grow healthier hair faster (think of a farmer watering his crops) 5-10 mins every other day should do it. Reducing stress is important. you’ve probably heard of cortisol (the stress hormone) as it’s been buzzing around social media for a while. If you feel stress is out of control it will tax the systems of your body in many ways and hair loss is a common result. Look at activities that you enjoy and help you feel peaceful.
good luck ladies 😀 hope it helps
