If you impulsively chopped off your locks during quarantine and now are longing for them to grow back faster, welcome to the club! While it may seem like growing out your hair is a test of patience, don't consider buying a wig or getting extensions just yet. Instead, turn to a select few hair care ingredients for hair growth that will help you give your longer hair naturally.
Ahead, we're listing down the ingredients that will help you grow out your hair, and improve your hair health in the process too. Read on…
01. Coconut water
Coconut is the 'it' ingredient for hair growth, so let's kick things off with coconut water. With active ingredients like cytokinins and vitamins that relax the blood vessels and improve blood circulation, even when applied topically, the ingredient can promote hair growth. Turn to the Sunsilk Coconut Water & Aloe Vera Volume Hair Shampoo + Conditioner Combo to reap the benefits of this superhero ingredient. The combo contains the goodness of coconut water and aloe vera, which will help stimulate hair growth, while nourishing, soothing, and hydrating the scalp like nothing else.
Most of us have familiarised ourselves with the antioxidant benefits of ginseng or ashwagandha over the course of the past year, and it seems like it's the gift that keeps on giving! Apart from improving hair health when used topically, ginseng also strengthens the hair follicles by increasing the dermal cells in the scalp, thus promoting the growth of new strands. If you want to give your mane the goodness of ginseng, turn to the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo. It not only contains the goodness of ginseng, but the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of neem too, which makes it a hair detox hero.
03. Argan oil
A hair care favourite, argan oil strengthens the strands from root to tip and prevents breakage, which therefore lets future new strands grow easily. Apart from indulging in an argan oil leave-in conditioner every now and then, treat your tresses to the Love Beauty & Planet Anti Frizz Combo. Infused with the goodness of pure Moroccan argan oil, this hair care duo will improve the health of your hair and help you grow out your tresses with ease. Added bonus? This clean beauty pair also contains 100% organic coconut oil, and you know what that means — luscious locks for days!
Believe it or not, honey is a great ingredient for promoting hair growth. By managing to lock in moisture in your strands the right way, honey hydrates your hair, therefore reducing breakage and promoting the growth of new strands. Also, when used frequently, it stimulates hair growth as well, since it hydrates the dormant follicles too. Opt for the Dove Healthy Ritual For Strengthening Hair Mask to give your mane that much-needed dose of honey. Containing oat milk and honey extracts, this hair mask will deeply nourish your hair, repair and strengthen your tresses, thus allowing them to grow longer and stay healthy.
