Around six months ago Jennifer Lawrance surprised a lot of people when she chopped her hair to a pixie cut, but it gave every women who had been dreading to have a major hair change a courage to take the “hair plunge”, including me which I precisely narrated several days ago the pros, cons and emotional roller coaster before and after having a major hair cut.
1. Watch What You Eat
Make sure to drink plenty of water and eat lots of fruits and vegetables to promote hair growth.
2. Keep Trimming
It may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s important to trim your hair as you grow it out. By cutting the ends of the hair, you’re stopping breakage and split ends from traveling up to the root, which can prevent full and healthy growth. What’s worst than growing a pixie hair is a long dried and damaged hair.
3. Do a DIY Treatment
Coconut milk is rich in nourishing vitamins and minerals and can stimulate growth by boosting the hair follicle. Apply coconut milk (either extracted from the fruit or from the can) and massage into the scalp for three to five minutes. Let it soak into your hair for an additional 20 minutes and then wash out in the shower. Try this treatment once or twice a week.
4. Embrace Baby Beach Waves
While you’re waiting for your hair to grow, experiment with different, flattering styles. “You don’t need super long tresses to get those coveted waves,” says Perez. Take a curling iron and wrap hair once around the barrel to get a slight wave. Alternate curling in different directions and spray to hold.
5. Go for the Wet Look
Try Beyoncé’s sexy Grammy look by washing your hair and drying it half way, then add gel and scrunch. Comb through with a wide-toothed comb and lightly dry with a diffuser to prevent the cuticles from frizzing and lock and hold the style.
