Trying to grow hair out after a bold cut can be frustrating (I can't be the only one who has gone through this!) But there are a few things you can do to move the process along ..besides waiting.
A couple things to keep in mind as far as hair-- #1 it is made of protein. #2 in order to nourish extremities (the furthest parts of our body; away from the center) we need good circulation. That should help provide context for some of the tips that might seem out of place.
- Drink collagen RELIGIOUSLY! I originally began recommending this to patients (and even for myself) to address digestive concerns but glowing taut skin and longer hair were nice added benefits.
- Brush your scalp nightly. This helps stimulate circulation.
- Eat enough. This is huge; as mentioned above hair is made of protein. If you are not eating enough, this will affect hair loss/growth. It is also important for digestion to be optimal in order to absorb and assimilate the nutrients (that's another reason collagen is important)
- Optimize hormone levels. Less than ideal thyroid and adrenal health negatively affects hair (perfect example: high stress can cause hair loss; adrenal glands deal with stress)
