Bee Natural Box is here to give you all the dos and don'ts on how to grow your hair naturally!
Use the wrong shampoo
Always make sure the shampoo you are using does not contain sulfates this will guarantee more moisture to get sealed into hair strands.
2. Shampoo the length of your hair
shampooing the length of hair will strip the hair strands of essential oils and can cause the hair to be more frizzy and tangled.
3. Neglect your scalp
The scalp is where all the new growth starts so if it isn't cleansed and taken care of properly then most growth will not occur.
Co-washing is an excellent method to ensure you are cleansing your scalp correctly. [click on the link below to read our co-washing blog]
4. Skipping Conditioner
Conditioner is your hair's best friend since not only it cleanses the hair but locks in moisture to the hair as well.
Conditioner is extremely crucial for good hair results as well as growth and should never be skipped when cleansing.
5. Pulling your hair back tightly, such as in a ponytail, bun, or cornrows.
Try wearing your hair loosely back instead of in a tight hairstyle that is putting stress on your scalp and hair.
Using rubber bands that are specially made for hair will help prevent breakage and damage.
Avoiding these kinds of hairstyles all together and trying one that isn't so stressful on the hair.
Now that all of the Don'ts are out of the way, here are some Do's to help promote hair growth!
Get regular trims
Avoid dry, brittle, and split ends by getting trims every six to eight weeks.
2. Rubs scalp daily
Co-washing is a great method to use when showering but rubbing the scalp when out of the shower is extremely beneficial as well.
