Have you ever wondered why in the summer time your hair may grow faster, or at some time during the year you experience some kind of GROWTH SPURT?
Read on for some quick scientific facts about how our hair grows!
|The Hair growth Cycle!|
Hair Growth in 3 Phases!
There are 3 phases to the way our hair grows:
The Anagen phase ( this is where the hair growth takes place!) it can last between 2 and 6 years!
The Catagen Phase ( this is where the hair transitions and you can shed hair)
The Telogen Stage ( this is where the hair rests and no growth takes place)
So how do we grow really long hair?
It has been said that a persons' 'Anagen phase' is genetic, so the length of time you can grow long hair or that period of which the hair is 'Actively' growing' is determined by genes. Is this true? I would say that is debatable.

Maximise your Anagen phase in 3 simple ways!
1) Keep your scalp healthy. Keep it cleansed, moisturised and stimulated.
how? conditions like dandruff, flakes and an itchy scalp to not aid the hairgrowth cycle. By regularly washing your scalp, oiling it with a natural stimulating scalp oil, I love the scalp hydration serum @ www.Root2tip.com, and by massaging your scalp deeply, you will be sure to maximise your Anangen-active phase of hair growth.
2) Retain your ends! -
The ends of your hair are the oldest, by holding onto them and keeping them healthy you will see hair GROWTH!
Keep your hair moisturised daily and pay attention to the TIPS! breaking tips will lead to no real hair length, that is noticeable.
3) Maintain a healthy diet high in protein!
Hair is primarily a strand of protein, so to keep the strands you grow, nourished and healthy from the inside, be sure to eat a diet that includes protein sources: Pumpkins seeds, fish, Tofu, chicken, Soya, beans, pulses to name a few!
So how will you Maximise your hairgrowth cycle this YEAR?
