Brush your hair

One of the tricks for having longer hair that's simple, is to brush it frequently and gently, at least three times a day. This massages the scalp, stimulates blood flow to allow more nutrients to reach the hair roots, thus encouraging growth and vitality. It's essential to choose a brush with natural bristles to prevent hair breakage and to discard those made of plastic that generate static electricity.

Rinse with cold water

After washing your hair, it's recommended to do a final rinse with cold water. This is a trick that all professional hairdressers recommend since water at this temperature seals the hair cuticles, which greatly promotes its growth. Not only that, this simple practice will give extra shine and softness to the hair.

Thermal protector

Something that greatly damages the hair, causing it to grow more slowly, is the heat generated by hairdryers, hair straighteners or curling irons. It's best not to subject the hair to high temperatures very often. But if you can't style your hair without using one of these devices, an excellent trick is to apply a thermal protector before using them. Place the thermal protector on wet hair and spread it evenly from the roots to the tips.
