Here is how you can create an award winning hair care regimen to get the most out of your hair growth journey.

Okay, let’s grow!  It’s important to know that increasing hair growth and retaining length is a process that takes strategic planning and execution.  It is not something that happens by osmosis, but should be intentionally monitored in many areas including diet/nutrition and your personal hair care regimen.

The Facts:

Hair typically grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month.  With enhanced diet and/or vitamin supplements, you can see accelerated growth. To retain your newfound growth, follow a regimen tailored for length retention.

THE DIET

You are what you eat, so when you put healthy food on the inside, you look healthy on the outside.  It really is as simple as that.  Your diet is the most important part of your hair growth journey.  This is because your diet supplies your blood with the proper nutrients to fertilize the bulb which then assists in producing the hair fiber through the follicle.  Your daily diet also supplies the body with the necessary nutrients to produce healthy sebum, the natural scalp oil that lubricates the scalp and hair.

The hair shaft itself is primarily made of hard protein.  A healthy diet full of proteins and good fats are essential for consistent hair growth.  Knowing that hair is primarily made of keratin, or hard proteins, minerals, metals and water, adding key foods to your diet is foundational.  If you do not already, now is a great time to reintroduce marine proteins to your diet like salmon, shrimp, oysters, clams and other seafood.  These marine proteins also contain zinc, iron, and niacin, but also contain essential fatty acids which are necessary lipids to lubricate your cells.  These essential fatty acids will ward away dry hair and skin and will lubricate your body where is necessary.

Additional proteins to add into your diet, include eggs, almonds and your favorite high protein foods.  As well as a variety of nuts and oils to your vegetable salads to quickly add more EFAs into your diet.  Stay away from junk food and more importantly, let go of sugar which kills vitamin B and decreases minerals! Finally, vitamins and minerals will top you off nicely. Adding a healthy vitamin to your diet can help get your nutritional needs accomplished daily without additional stress and tension.  The New Blissful Lengths Liquid Hair Growth Vitamin will guarantee your daily intake of the essential vitamins and minerals your body needs for the luscious healthy locks, skin and nails you desire.  The liquid formula will infuse seamlessly into your blood stream at a 98% absorption rate.  Learn more about this hair growth GAME CHANGER, here.

Finally add more water to your day.  Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to adequately hydrate.  Water keeps the strands moisturized and actually makes up 1/4th of the weight of the hair strand, making it uber important.  Water will help your body distribute your nutrients throughout your body and aid in detoxification and purification, so have another glass!

Overall, take your diet to heart, choose the best foods, take the best vitamin and drink enough water to support your goals!

THE HAIR REGIMEN

The Cleanse – Your scalp sebum has an interesting love/hate relationship with itself.  Sebum should be balanced and regulated for optimal effectiveness.  You can do this by cleansing the scalp as needed for fresh sebum to circulate.  Otherwise it is very easy to end up with scalp irritation from hardened or built-up sebum.  How often should you cleanse?  As needed.  If you have short hair or you live a very active lifestyle, you can cleanse your hair every 3-7 days (more or less).  For a moderate lifestyle, consider cleansing every 7-10 days.  If you co-wash, you can stretch your cleansing sessions even further.  Choose a cleanser that is sulfate-free, natural and made of organic ingredients.  Need options?  Click here.

The Condition – Your gorgeous, growing hair needs to be conditioned from the outside-in.  Be sure to properly hydrate your hair and keep a great strength and moisture balance.  Apply a formulated rinse-out conditioner after each and every cleansing session.  You can also perform a conditioning rinse when your hair needs an extra shot of moisture, or to hold you over to your next cleanse.

The Deep Condition – Take off your shoes…. the ground you are about to walk on is holy ground!  Deep conditioning is everything.  After the hair sprouts through the hair follicle, it can only be nourished with the scalp sebum and outer care methods.  Deep conditioning will condition the hair on all three levels of the hair fiber.  However, it is important to note that deep conditioning will have a lasting effect.  This means that from treatment to treatment, your stays strong and hydrated.  So how often should you deep condition?  Typically once every 2 -3 weeks is enough.  However, if you need extra hair repair, increase your deep treatment sessions.  Need some treatment options, click here.

Style – Consider a style that will conceal your ends. This method is also known as protective styling and has proven to be effective in hair growth retention.  You can utilize twist and tuck styles, updos, or the traditional bun.  Whatever you do, make sure you fully take down your style at the end of each day.

Long Term Protective Styling – This includes braids and twists with extension as well as length or volume extensions via weft, crochet and other extension methods.  Be sure to leave your style in for no more than 2 months.  Within that time cleanse and regulate your scalp at least once a week with a gentle cleanser or witch hazel rinse.  You can perform this by applying witch hazel to a cotton swab and wiping the scalp clean.  For cleansing while extensions are installed, you can consider using a pointed tube to apply directly to your scalp since this area is the focus.  Finally, be sure to spray your hair with a leave in moisturizing concoction every other day while your hair is in the extended style.  This will guarantee that your hair is receiving the nutrition that it needs while tucked away. For the best moisture spray, simply fill a bottle with one part water to one part leave in using the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner.

Night time Care – Each night, cover your hair with a silk or satin cap or utilize a silk or satin pillowcase to sleep with.  You will see very quickly that this texture will preserve your texture and will prevent breakage.

** Secret Weapon – The Art of Sealing!  This technique involves using a leave in conditioner followed by a sealing oil.  You can use the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner followed by the Blueberry Bliss Hair Growth Oil.  Don’t own it, click here.  Sealing your ends will hydrate your hair while preserving the moisture, trapped within the hair shaft.
