How To: Grow Your Hair Longer For Summer!

We girls have all been through that stage where we want our hair to grow - fast! Whether its upset following a dreadful haircut, or just a sudden desire for long locks, we've all been there. At this time of year especially, I have found that lots of us want lusciously longer and healthy hair for those Summer months spent by the beach! At the moment, I'm quite happy with the length of my hair, however I still use products and little lifestyle alterations that endeavour to stimulate growth. This means that my hair will remain healthy and I won't be left feeling disheartened after the dreaded chop!

Here are some of my top tips if you're looking to grow your hair a little longer over the next few months:

Products To Help Stimulate Healthy Hair Growth

1. Organic Root Stimulator Hair Fertilizer (£4.39/170g)
This is my favourite! A few years ago, my lovely friend Cathryn introduced me to the 'Organic Root Stimulator' range and in particular, 'Hair Fertilizer'. The formula is completely organic and uses a blend of nettle, horsetail and paprika to nourish the scalp and strengthen dry, damaged hair, thereby creating the perfect environment for hair to grow. The instructions say to use daily, applying all over the scalp and combing through to the ends. However, I find the product makes your hair very greasy so I will tend to apply it, as the instructions state, in the evening before I go to bed. Then I wash it out in the morning and my hair is left smooth and shiny. It is so reasonably priced at £4.39 a pot and I have found it has become rather popular - it always seems to be sold out on the Boots website, so grab some when you can!

2. Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment (£7.99/200ml)
This gorgeous formula has been designed 'For Hair that never Grows past a certain Length'. Lee Stafford has created an innovative 'Pro-Growth Complex' with this product, to help combat sluggish hair growth. It works at a cellular level, using protein to enhance the health of the hair follicle and improve the overall tensile strength of the hair. As well as this, the treatment also gives volume and body, creating the illusion of thicker locks. What I love most about this product, is that it is so easy to incorporate into your current hair-care regime. Simply apply an egg-sized amount to your hair after shampoo-ing, leave for 5 minutes, then wash out and continue with conditioner as normal. Stafford calls this a 'miracle' treatment and to an extent, I would agree. I have used this product for nearly 4 months now and the quality of my hair has certainly improved, providing me with a healthy, nourished environment for optimum growth. It also smells delicious! To promote development even more, I would recommend using it with Lee Stafford Hair Growth Shampoo (£6.99/200ml).

3. Nisim FAST - Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy
Clinically proven to enhance the growth rate of your hair by up to 99%, this is the ultimate new hair product on the market and was only released in the UK a few months ago. It was so popular in the US that it sold out within 24 hours of its launch! Nisim claims that their products will boost the length of your hair with every wash, by stimulating the existing natural growth within the hair follicle. The shampoo and conditioner contain a special blend of essential nutrients, amino acids and proteins which apparently, are not found in other hair products at the moment. The products from Nisim are suitable for all hair types and also safe to use on chemically treated hair, which is great. The range is now available at Boots for £24.99. See the video from Nisim International below, for more details and reviews:

A Healthy Diet
Our hair is mostly made up of a protein called Keratin, so eating a protein-rich diet will really help assist hair growth. Healthy sources which will provide the amino acids necessary for Keratin production, include eggs, fish, lean meat, nuts and pulses.

Vitamin Supplements

There are so many supplements available to us which claim to stimulate hair growth but personally, I maintain that Biotin really does promote healthy development. Biotin is a water-soluble B Vit, which our bodies require for cell growth and synthesis of fat into amino acids. So that's a bit of a bonus girls - it also assists an active metabolism and the maintenance of healthy blood sugar levels. For those reasons, but primarily for its effectiveness in stimulating hair growth, I personally recommend this if you are looking for a supplement to your diet. You will take one tablet daily with a meal, so it's easy to remember and I tend to take one in the morning with breakfast.
Natrol Biotin Maximum Strength is available here, at £8.99 for 100 tablets.

Avoid Stress
Keep Calm and Carry On! It has been proven now that emotional or even physical stress will slow and even in some cases, shut down hair growth. In severe circumstances, hair loss can even occur. Therefore, a happier you means happier hair. Spending a few minutes each evening doing a quick DIY scalp massage, will help relax you and also gently stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles, promoting hair growth.
