Hair growth tips
One of TikTok hair’s most viral themes is hacks on how to get your hair to grow faster. If you feel like your hair growth is slower or gets stuck at a certain length these may be able to assist in promoting more growth. If you’re frustrated with your hair journey we suggest also trying some hair manifestation. Try starting every day by saying:
“The hair on my head is long, healthy, and grows quickly. It is growing and flourishing as I breathe.”
While you practice healthy manifestations try these extra tips to boost your hair growth!
To achieve healthier and longer hair, heat should be avoided as much as possible to promote stronger strands and less damage. Our favourite reveals on TikTok hair have been heatless hairstyles. Whether you try braiding your hair for a crimped beachy look or tying your strands around a rope, these looks are getting the views. One of our fav transformations is @stephaniealexxandra heatless curls using her heatless curler with hair oil. Contrary to most heatless curl hacks, leave your hair dry for this one and sleep with it overnight!
If you’re trying to add hair oil into your hair care routine, it’s important to keep in mind that it's not a one size fits all kind of addition. Depending on your hair type specific oils can help or actually do the opposite. This TikTok rounds up the best hair oils for your hair type and gives options for you to try.
Vitamins for extra hair growth
Hair masks, less heat and silk pillows all can help with the growth of your hair, but the number one way to aid in hair growth is still taking your vitamins. Hair vitamins are a key factor in the strength, length and shine of your hair and skin! Here are some vitamins that truly help with making your hair as healthy as can be!
