It is so true... for your hair to be long, it has to be healthier and strong first... just don't worry about your hair losing its density... here are some tips you can follow to improve your hair’s density;
The scalp needs regular stimulation to encourage blood flow and circulation. A daily 5 minute scalp massage will help to encourage natural hair growth. Take care not to use fingernails, but rather massage the scalp with the fingertips. Another way to encourage natural hair growth and promote circulation to the scalp is to hang your head over a bed or brush hair up-side-down for a minute or two to reverse the flow of blood.
Trying to promote natural hair growth also means preserving what you have. Tangles lead to breakage, and it is wise to brush hair in the morning, before bed and while damp after conditioning. Limit the use of a hair dryer. Never use a hair dryer on extremely wet hair. Allow it to air dry for a while before using a hair dryer to style hair. Do not use harsh styling tools such as flat irons or curling irons when trying to grow hair. The heat is extremely damaging to hair and causes breakage.
Use a natural hair mask one to two times a week. Good choices are avocados, bananas or raw eggs as a 35 minute hair pack before shampooing as usual. Avocados are full of natural oils and vitamins that nourish the scalp and promote natural hair growth. Bananas clarify the scalp and promote circulation to encourage hair growth. Eggs strengthen existing hair and prevent breakage. Rinse egg out of hair with cool water so it will not scramble.
Dandruff prohibits healthy hair growth. Olive oil is an effective natural remedy for dandruff. Olive oil has been used throughout the ages as a clarifying and moisturizing agent that helps to remove impurities from the skin. Massage olive oil on the scalp before bed, cover the scalp with a shower cap and wash as usual in the morning. Another natural solution for dandruff is to apply witch hazel to the scalp with a cotton ball. Witch hazel can be applied anytime to itchy and flaky spots on the scalp throughout the day.
Rosemary increases circulation in the scalp and promotes natural hair growth. Boil three tablespoons of dried rosemary leaves in a cup of water. Set it aside for 2 days before straining out the solids. Pour rosemary water in a spray bottle and apply it to hair roots before bed or a few hours before washing hair to promote hair growth.
