Reduce Breakage

hairbrushIt’s in your bed, on your pillow, on the floor, in the shower, in the sink, on your brush, and sometimes even in your food!

Breakage is a huge factor when it comes to growing your hair out, it can make –or BREAK the growing process. Pun intended.

Below, I am going to let you in on some wonderful tips for growing long hair.

 

Wash Your Hair Less, Use Dry Shampoo

Washing your hair too much can cause it to dry out and break. You should only wash it 2-3 times per week. Use dry shampoo to wash your hair in-between regular washes. Batiste Dry Shampoo is a top rated dry shampoo, for a good price. There are different scents to try out as well! Check out my review to see if it’s for you! Batiste Dry Shampoo Review

Organic Shampoo and Conditioner

Organic shampoo and conditioner can help to repair your hair and scalp. Using regular easy-to-buy hair care products is only destroying your beloved hair. It doesn’t have to cost you hundreds to use organic products. Acure Moroccan Argan Stem Cell + Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner are going to become your best friends, next to Coconut Oil.

Microfiber Towel

Microfiber towels are light in weight, easy on hair and they dry it more quickly, leaving hair less frizzy as well. Unlike traditional towels, they absorb water in-between the fibers instead of inside them. This allows the water to evaporate and not just soak into the towel, making it heavy. The Hair Towel is the perfect microfiber towel. They come in cute colors like baby pink, blue, green, yellow and lavender. The lavender is my favorite. Find out more about The Hair Towel here, and where you can get one!

Air Dry Your Hair

It’s much quicker to just blow dry your hair so you can get on with your day, but it isn’t worth the damage. My advice  is to wrap your hair in your new cute microfiber towel for a little while, then let it air dry the rest of the way.

 

Morrocco Method Brush

Morrocco Method has special boar bristle brushes that stimulate the scalp, promoting healthy hair growth. There are many benefits of using this brush. Find out on my Morrocco Method Boar Brush Review. Make sure to detangle before brushing to minimize breakage. Brush from root to tip to thoroughly coat your hair with sebum (the natural oil that is secreted from your pores). There are more detailed instructions on my review as well as on the back of the hairbrush package when it comes in the mail.

Silk/Satin Pillowcase

Silk/satin pillowcases are ultra smooth and they won’t catch your hair, causing it to break. Instead, hair glides on the silk and can make you wake up feeling pretty. Betty Dain Satin Pillowcases are nice and cheap, with a selection of black, white and beige.

  1. Wow. hello again. What a coincidence. I enjoy reading the coconut oil miracle also!! One Question, does silk pillow really helps? I never heard about pillows could cause damages to your hair. Oh yeah, back to the coconut oil part, was the photos of example done by you? I am now going to give it a try and test on my family. I in my late twenties and slowly notice few grey hair. Like 6 in each sides. haha It did got me bit blue when I first notice it. I hope my family and friends will like my coconut oil once I give it a try! Thanks!

    • Hello there!

      Yes silk pillows definitely help, One downside to them is that they can cause you to breakout from oils on your face if you don’t wash it enough.

      Another yes. The coconut oil example was done by me. I’m going to take better pictures of it actually applied on my hair when I get the chance.

  2. Your site is very attractive and you have chosen a theme that really suits the content. I took a quick look at your other pages and found lots of useful health info with regard to hair care.

    Just one error I came across. Where you list the URL for the Morrocco Method, you spelled it with just one “r”. Fortunately the link is correct so no damage.

    Otherwise, a very nice site that should do well for you. Well done.

    • Thank you!

      Would you mind pointing out exactly where that error is? I definitely want to fix that asap. I don’t see where the misspelling is though.

  3. Hi there Gina,

    I find it impossible to wash my hair at the frequency of 2-3 days per week. My scalps become very itchy within 24 hours and if I run my fingers through, it’s oily and smells of sweat.

    Yes, my hair does shed a lot but I thought it’s a fair amount to lose every day. Am I dealing with an oily scalp problem? What kind of shampoo should I be using then?

    Thanks for your advice.

    • Cathy,

      There are two things you could try:

      As a quick treatment, you could try mixing half apple cider vinegar with half water. In the shower, tilt your head back and pour the mixture slowly onto your hair. Massage it into your scalp a little bit then put your hair up in a large clip to let it soak in. Afterwards, shampoo it out and do everything else normally.

      If you’re looking for a shampoo, you can click on the Morrocco Method Brush link here, then click to go to the website. On that website they have amazing apple cider vinegar shampoo and conditioner that will work wonders.
