Doesn’t it seem like hair stops growing after a certain point? There are women who have hair that reaches way down their backs, but for others, growing hair to that length feels impossible.
Poor Hair Habits
When your hair is damaged, your hair becomes weak and fragile.
There are several poor hair care habits that can lead to breakage of the hair such as excessive heat styling, over-manipulation from styling, chemical hair coloring, and bleaching.
These types of practices can add a lot of stress to hair that is already fragile, weaken your hair’s elasticity and can lead to breakage, thinning of the hair and severe hair damage.
Shorter Hair Growth Cycle also known as Genetics
We all have a unique hair growth cycle contributed solely to genetics. The hair growth cycle is constantly in rotation, and all of your hair never in the same phase of the cycle simultaneously. There is a phase of the hair growth cycle when the hair will become dormant until the cycle repeats.
Poor Diet & Lack of Exercise
They say you are what you eat, and if you’re filling up on a lot of junk, fried and greasy foods, your hair could really suffer.
Your hair also needs proper vitamins, minerals and nutrients in order to thrive and eating foods that are high in nutritional value such as fish, nuts, and green leafy vegetables will help your hair grow healthier and fuller.
