Tips From Stephanie for Growing Hair
1. TAKE CARE OF THE SCALP
The scalp is alive and should be well taken care of because hair grows from the scalp. Without a healthy scalp, you can not grow hair. The scalp loves vitamins, minerals, herbs, amino acids, fruit and nut oils which should be applied regularly for proper hair growth. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Leave-In Conditioner, Hairobics Hair and Scalp Booster, Hairobics Hair Vitamins.
2. TAKE CARE OF THE HAIR
The hair needs moisture to shine and have luster. If the hair does not have enough moisture it will become dull, lackluster, and brittle. Hair needs protection in the form of emollients and lubricants. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Oil.
3. TAKE CARE OF THE ENDS
The ends of the hair make the length. Special attention should be given to the ends of the hair in the form of oils. Without a little oil on the ends they will split very easy because the ends of the hair are the oldest part of the hair and very fragile. Oils that are good for the ends include evening primrose, apricot kernel, sunflower, sesame to name as few. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Oils, Hairobics Pomade.
4. COMMITTING TO DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENTS
When the hair has a deep conditioning treatment, the conditioner deposits a coating of positively charged conditioning agents a few molecules thick on the hair shaft. This coating remains after rinsing, lubricating the hair shafts and reducing friction, tangles, and knots, thus minimizing stretching the hair while wet and most vulnerable.

5. AVOID EXCESSIVE EXPOSURE TO THE SUNLIGHT
Hair is just as prone to sun damage as the skin and scalp. The sun is a powerful energy source that will oxidize the pigment in the hair and damage the hair shaft. Sunscreens protect the hair from some of this damage; they can also provide a measure of protection to the scalp. Wearing a scarf is also a way of protecting the hair from not only the sun but the wind, rain, dust as well. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Oil, Hairobics Pomade.
6. CHOOSING THE APPROPRIATE SHAMPOO
When choosing shampoo make sure that the product contains vitamins, minerals, proteins, and amino acids as well as strengthen and protect the hair. Many shampoos on the market strip the hair of natural oils, offer minimal protection of the hair shaft, and have no nutrients to supply the hair.

7. KEEPING THE ENDS OF THE HAIR TRIMMED
The ends of the hair are very fragile and must be trimmed every 8 to 10 weeks. The amount that has to be trimmed depends on the amount of abuse that the ends have endured. The ends of the hair must be well-lubricated to prevent splitting, breakage, knots and tangles. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Oil, Hairobics Pomade.
8. COMMITTING TO HOT OIL TREATMENTS
Hot oil treatments usually take the form of pre-shampoo conditioning. Hot oil treatments are excellent when growing hair to a desired length. Hot oil treatments are used for their stimulating, strengthening, and moisturizing properties. Pre-shampoo scalp treatments loosen and slouch off dead surface cells on the scalp and provide nourishing emollient and antioxidant benefits. Hairobics Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Oil, Pomade.
9. CHOOSING HAIR STYLES THAT PROTECT AND KEEP THE HAIR HEALTHY
Choosing hair styles that are healthy for the hair are very important. Wearing braids or weaves that are too long or tight create a medical condition called alopecia areata (sudden hair loss in patches). If not given the attention that the scalp needs it will result in permanent hair loss. Hairstyles that pull or weigh down the hair because of weaves should be avoided. Work with your professional stylist to develop a style that will work with, and not against your hair's natural inclination.
10. USING STYLING TOOLS TOO REGULARLY (BLOW DRYER, HOT COMB, FLAT IRONING, FLAT IRONING, HOT CURL)
Keep in mind that any styling implement can become a tool of destruction, damaging your hair's health. The heat from these styling tools when used too regularly can cause the hair to break, split, become brittle and hard. Limit the use of these appliances as well as use low temperature settings whenever possible.
11. USING OLD HAIR TOOLS
Take a look at all the hair tools that you use, and get rid of any that are broken or in disrepair. This includes everything from the comb with broken teeth or brush with broken bristles that can snap hair, causing great damage and excessive tension on the hair.
12. NOT HAVING A HAIR MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
The hair can only take care of itself up to about 2 to 4 inches when there is no hair maintenance program. That is why some people think that their hair can not grow or it only grows up to a certain point and then it breaks. Talk to your hair professional and ask he or she what can you do to your hair for maintenance during the time period that you are not at the salon.
13. POOR DIET
You cannot have healthy hair or hair growth without a proper diet. Hair is primarily a transformation of our daily food. Strong beautiful hair shows we have a strong digestive system and that we are assimilating our food optimally. The health of the hair depends on the proper supply of nutrients. Taking in foods like refined sugars, certain spices, chemical additives, soft drinks, and so on will deplete and weaken the hair, while eating healthy, nutrient packed foods will give resilience and strength. A diet lacking nutrients can result in hair that is dull, thin, dry, brittle, and you will face breakage or full-blown hair loss. Hairobics Hair Products to Use: Hairobics Hair Vitamins.
