Each hair journey is different, and not everyone has the same hair goals. Whether you look forward to a more voluminous crown, thicker locs, or an end to your split ends, it’s up to you to find what you want that goal to be. At NaturAll, we believe healthy hair is always the first step, but length can also be important in achieving your hair goals. We hope this guide to retaining hair length serves you well on your hair health and growth journey!
1. Iron in your diet helps hair growth
Iron is a mineral that helps carry oxygen through your blood. Maintaining your iron levels is imperative, especially for women. Good blood circulation is key to nourishing your scalp and stimulating hair growth. Iron is easily available as a dietary supplement, but you can also add iron packed foods like spinach and oats to your diet.
2. Zinc helps repair hair damage
Zinc not only ensures the oil glands around your hair follicles work properly, but it also repairs damage to the hair shaft. This process helps promote healthy hair growth and also reduces the risk of breakage and physical damage. Zinc is another mineral that can either be taken in capsule form, or found in various foods like beans, nuts, and whole grains.
3. Low maintenance styles protect hair and help retain length
Low maintenance styles that require minimal hair manipulation are perfect for giving you a great look that’s long lasting and also aids in your hair journey. Braided, twisted, and locked hairstyles are fantastic for tucking your hair away so that it isn’t damaged by daily styling and handling. By allowing the hair to relax and grow as it wishes, you may find that you have less breakage and can see your length faster than if you had continued to switch up your hair constantly with combs, brushes, and heat.
4. Some protective styles help maintain moisture
Protective styles like braids and cornrows allow for plenty of air and access to your scalp so you can monitor its moisture levels. We recommend greasing your scalp with NaturAll’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil Growth Serum regularly to help restore moisture while soothing and relieving any inflammation. Our JBCO also promotes blood circulation to the scalp to enhance growth and put an end to flakiness so your protective style can last longer as your hair grows stronger!
