In Our Heads About Our Hair

My hair won't grow

This is one statement that I get a lot, and see a lot: “my hair won’t grow”. The reason why I am writing this is to let you know that this statement is not true. It is just not correct.
When you noticed that your hair won’t grow, there are basically two things that may happen:
•You have reached the terminal length – which is highly unlikely unless if you have really long hair, at waist level o even longer.
•You are not preserving you ends.
•You are not getting enough nutrients into your system (this is when biotin comes in)

Now, let’s talk a bit about the second factor which is most of the time the cause you are not retaining length – your hair ends. If you feel your hair roots and they feel really raveled or nappy and just feel that you need a relaxer every two or three months, that means that your hair is growing. The problem is that you are not preserving the length because of the hair ends. As you know the ends are the oldest parts of your hair and the most vulnerable.

So, if you don’t see your hair length increasing in a month or two that means that as fast as your hair is growing, your ends are breaking. Thus, the length remains the same, even though your hair keeps growing day by day. You need to moisturize your ends! There are a lot of great products on the market that really help a lot. After moisturizing you can also use oil in order to preserve to moist even better.

Regarding the third bullet point, I always said that nutrition is very important for a healthy body and also a healthy hair. Biotin continues to be the most important vitamin you can think of when it comes to hair growth rate. Biotin can compensate for the lack of nutrients and vitamins that for some reason you just can get into you system. Remember that your hair and nails are the last parts of your body in line for getting the nutrients after the vital organs like your heard, brain, muscles and so on. Biotin is great for hair growth so I definitely recommend it if you are not happy with the current condition of your hair.
