Whether you’re on a quest for long luscious locks or simply a much healthier head of hair you’re going to need a little patience and an updated haircare routine, but it’ll be well worth it.

While many people automatically search for the secrets to hair growth at the bottom of a bottle of miracle shampoo there are some other very simple things you can do to help.

Hair Boosting Supplements

Adding Lumity Day and Night Supplements to your daily beauty regime can assist in longterm results in your overall wellness and your hair, skin and nails get a big boost too. The capsules – taken in the morning and the evening – are packed with nutrients and minerals including shine-boosting, Selenium, to keep your locks glossy. Lumity also contains vitamin E which supports a healthy hair and scalp and zinc which is important for hair repair and hair tissue growth. 

Silk Pillowcase

Your crazy bed head isn’t just messy, it’s damaging to your hair too. If you wake up with knots and tangles galore it might just be time to invest in a silk pillowcase. Reducing the friction from all the  tossing and turning will help curb hair breakages and therefore allow your hair to grow longer. Silk pillowcases also offer plenty of perks for skin too.

Regular Trims

It sounds counterintuitive but you want long, healthy hair then you need to have it cut. Regular trims might not make your hair grow quicker but it will keep it looking and feeling in tip top shape. When it’s shiny with plenty of volume it can give the illusion of being longer. Snipping off those pesky split ends will make your hair look healthier all round. 

Improve Your Diet

It’s not just about what you put on your hair it’s about how you feed it from the inside out too. Just as diet impacts your waistline and your skin it makes a difference to your locks too. Protein rich foods like fish, beans and whole grains will help encourage your hair to grow. Add in foods high in omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, iron and vitamins A, C and E too and your hair will certainly reap the rewards. 

Cool Rinse in the Shower

Chilly we know but a blast of cold water at the end of your shower is great for your hair and it’ll invigorate you too! By rinsing your locks with a cool water you seal the cuticle and make it stronger. Definitely a good one to do before you get your heated styling tools on it.
