Less breakage, less hair loss

You’ve heard it before, but in order to grow your hair, you have to first stop it from breaking off.  To do this, we must reduce the amount of friction our tresses are subjected to. Throw out the skinny hair ties which are notoriously harmful to hair and opt for less damaging alternatives like claw clips and soft scrunchies (we loved the Gemelli Jenna Clips from Spring 2022, but any clip will work!). And you know what we’re going to say next… reduce your hair’s exposure to heat! This includes using heat protectants, taking colder showers, and limiting use of heat tools.

Skip the Teasing Technique

Teasing, or backcombing the roots of the hair to create more volume at the crown of the head is incredibly damaging to the hair strands, breaking off and tangling the hair. Instead, use a root lifting product like the Fekkai Clean Stylers Root Lift for voluminous thicker looking locks! Shake the product before use and simply spray the root lift on damp hair at the crown of the head. Rub the product in gently with your fingers, then blow dry on a medium heat setting.

Adjust your nighttime routine

Avoid sleeping in messy buns (braids are a better alternative!), and opt for a silk pillowcase. Try the Zoe Ayla Spa Headband when washing your face or applying makeup to avoid ripping out strands with other hair ties. It secures tightly to itself with velcro and sits snugly on your head at your hairline to keep your locks back — no ponytail required. 

 Keep the hair hydrated

Dry shampoo, styling creams, and hair tools will inevitably dry out the hair making it more susceptible to damage, so it’s important to make sure we’re doing our due diligence to rehydrate. We are absolutely swooning over the Amika Dream Routine Overnight Hydration Treatment. It’s silicon-free and infused with hyaluronic acid, coconut water, blue algae, and sea buckthorn to provide max moisture from the roots down. Apply to damp or dry hair before bedtime, and you’re good to go.

To keep the moisture locked in, use the Amika Hydro Rush Intense Moisturizer + Conditioner to retain as much hydration as possible.


Get to the root of the issue

Now that we’ve addressed the issues causing breakage, let’s focus on growth. Follicle-stimulating products are trending right now, and for good reason.

The Nue Co. SUPA_THICK targets both the hair follicle stem cells and dermal papilla cells located at the follicle. The prebiotics and probiotics repopulate the scalp’s microbiome. This is an excellent pre wash product applied directly to the scalp then massaged in and rinsed out after 20 minutes. The results include a clean, non-irritated scalp that thickens the hair. Honestly, the benefits of this treatment are endless.
