10 Top Tips for Growing Healthy Hair

Growing out my hair has been the bane of my life. I cut it all off (stupid girl) and then have been growing it ever since (bearing in mind I cut it off in 2006 - it is now 2016) trying to find the best ways to help it grow - these are some of the ones that worked best for me!

1. Get A Hair Cut Regularly
Cutting your hair on a regular basis, helps prevent split ends - this really, horrid, annoying thing that totally wrecks your hair and makes it frizzy ( I speak from experience) so getting a trim as often as your hair dresser would suggest will help prevent the split ends.

2. Lani Hair
 A product that will help smooth the frizz and to put a stop to the straw-like texture I have been struggling with. And Lani Hair did the job! 

3. Mythic Oil
Another product for taming the split frizzy ends.

4. Avoid Using Heat
Straightening, curling and blow drying your hair regularly dries it out so much. Avoid using heat as much as you can. There are hundreds of tutorials on heatless hairstyles on Youtube and Pinterest, pick a few you really like and master them.  Avoid using heat as much as you can - and if you absolutely must, make sure you use a heat protector.

5. Don't Wash Your Hair Every Day
Batiste Dry Shampoo is my go too, a quick spritz in the morning and I'm ready to go - it doesn't leave your hair feeling itchy, but fresh and bouncy.

6. Hair Masks
There are hundreds of homemade hair masks you can make, or alternatively buy for every hair type you can think of. 

7. Avoid Pulling Your Hair Back Tight
Tying your hair up in a really tight bun or pony tail can cause a lot of damage to your hair. Avoid scraping your hair back to tightly, it can break and snap the hair which will result in more split ends.

8. Don't Brush Your Hair When Its Wet
Raking a hairbrush through wet hair will again cause it to break and split. However, using a wide tooth comb is much better for you hair, its less harsh and causes much less damage. Its best to comb through your hair while the conditioner is still in, it makes it easier and gives the hair a protective barrier.   

9. Tangle Teaser
Tangle Teasers are marvellous and are much kinder on your hair. 

10. Avoid dying it
Hair dye is the quickest way to ruin you hair and prevent hair growth. Steer clear from dying your hair, but if you are desperate - research some of the more natural ways to enhance your hair colour without the damaging effects. 


  1. I'm catching up on all the posts I've missed ;) I definitely agree with this! I've dyed my hair enough to see it at it's best and to see it at it's absolute worst! We really should be taking care of our hair. Especially if we want it to grow! I just recently cut mine to the point where there was no more split ends (it was pretty bad) after dying it so much this past year it's gotten pretty unhealthy. I'm taking steps to help it grow and stay healthy. This post is really going to help me. Thanks! :)


    1. You're braver than me! My hair is so split and damaged, I need to cut it off and start fresh really, but I just can't do it! It's taken me 10 years to get my hair long again! I'm not going back on myself now! Hope it helps girly!
