Hair Mask For Extreme Hair Growth

Maintaining your hair so that they are strong, thick and healthy is not an easy task. Especially since majority of us use a number of tools that damage our hair in a long-term. The more we use, the worse it becomes…

It is thought that hair growth treatments and products promoting fast growth are incredibly expensive which is partially true. Partially, because they are expensive, but you can always opt another option – make a home-made hair mask that will help your hair grow thicker and faster (and won’t make your purse any less thinner, we promise)!

You will need:

- 3 spoons of mustard,

- 3 spoons of avocado oil,

- 1 big spoon of cinnamon powder.

Simply mix all ingredients until even and apply on your scalp. It’s important that you apply the mask on your scalp and not your hair.  Keep it for about half an hour ant then wash it off. Don’t overuse it: since mask has a warming effect, it can easily affect scalp skin irritation.

In order to stimulate your hair growth even more, it is advised to brush your hair at least twice a day. Brushing hair stimulates blood circulation and cell renewal, which is essential for hair growth. Besides brushing your hair try to massage your scalp with your fingertips as often as possible. Try to massage your scalp a little longer while applying shampoo and conditioner. And, certainly, use the mask! This natural home-made mask has a warming effect which, again, stimulates blood circulation. Use mask once or twice a week before washing your hair.

When I used up the last drops of my favourite shampoo, it felt like a disaster as I had bought the shampoo during my study trip overseas, and it was nowhere to be found here in Denmark. Of course, a search on Ebay provided me with several possibilities, except that the price was four times higher than the initial price of the product. So, I began my long search for a proper replacement. Back then, I had a rather stressful time at work and with studies, which caused my hair to fall out. I would find my hair everywhere in the apartment, and brushing felt like torture. I decided to find another way – go through my fridge. My mother always told me that it is always best to use the gifts of nature instead of chemistry, and I had a chance to test it myself. These are the ingredients that I use:

1 egg yolk

2 table spoons olive oil

1 tea spoon almond oil

1 tea spoon honey

Just mix all the ingredients together until even and apply to a slightly moist hair, massaging the mask into the roots. Next, take a shower cap and leave the mask for 1-2 hours for a better result. You should not wash out the mask with hot water or you’ll make an omelette in your hair- and that is the only disadvantage of this mask. Egg yolk contains lecithin, amino acids, as well as vitamins A, B, E, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus that nourishes and strengthens your hair. Almond oil, rich with E and F vitamins, makes your hair glossy and soft, and prevents the end from splitting. Likewise, olive oil nourishes your hair and stimulates growth and repair. Last, but not least is honey. We all know it, and have used it as a remedy for illnesses for a long time. Honey is also a remedy for the hair as well, renewing the natural structure of your hair and strengthening it.

Personally, I have used this mask 2-3 times a week for a last couple of months. After a month, I noticed that my hair stopped falling out, became glossy and the ends stopped splitting. My hair is easier to comb and looks healthy and beautiful. Of course, there are other factors which influence the growth and health of your hair. If you combine the procedure with a healthy diet filled with natural oils and vitamins, such as from avocados, nuts or meat, it will strengthen your hair both from the inside and the outside. On the other hand, nourishing your hair from the outside has its own advantages and clear visual results.

Bob hairstyles

In 2013, bob hairstyles are making their mark. They’re sprouting up on model influencers – from Karlie Kloss to Edie Campbell and Aline Weber – appearing in chin length, fringed versions as well as longer bobs that brush the shoulders. The short hair cut of 2013, the bob is back in a versatile and modern way.

When the time is right and you need a change, there’s nothing quite as liberating as chopping off your hair into a bob. This process of renewal leaves you feeling fresh – courtesy both the change in style and the dead ends left lying on the salon floor. In 2013 the bob again surfaces as a trend – both with a fringe / bangs and without. So if you’re after a new hairstyle for 2013 and beyond, and want to brave the bob, this may just be the time.

 

Long hair

At the other end of the extreme when it comes to haircuts in 2013: ultra long hair. Away from the bob, this is the best way for a hair cut to make a big impact. The trend on the runways suggests a hair length that just reaches or covers the breasts, since the look hints at something a little mythological (think ancient goddesses and mermaids) – anything longer starts to cross over into medieval maiden territory and begins to lose its raw sex-appeal.

Very long hair in 2013 can be cut in two main ways: blunt, or layered. The truth is that either can work equally well. If your hair is straight and all one length, a blunt will mean you can work both a straight, sleek look and a more textured one.

If you have some shorter layers  you’ve still got the right foundations for an on-trend long hairstyle. Since a lot of runway looks use extensions to achieve the right length (meaning there will always be some shorter, natural layers showing through) and because the most on-trend styles for long hair are the ones with plenty of volume and texture, it doesn’t matter if your hair is cut with some layers.

That said, the long 2013 hair cut isn’t one you want to thin out too much – remember it’s best with volume and texture – so the most on-trend way to have it cut is with a few choppy layers, not completely layered all over.

Whether side parted, center-parted, curled or straight, it’s worth knowing a few basic textured hairstyles for long hair.
