According to Thibault Trépeau, Redken Artist and head of the Le Local 35 hair salon in Lège-Cap-Ferret (33), Caucasian hair grows by one centimeter per month, Afro hair grows by 0.5 centimetres and Asian hair grows by 1.5 to 2 centimetres”. A moderate pace that can be stimulated through what are commonly called “grandmother’s recipes”.
Massage his scalp
“By performing tonic massages on the scalp, we will activate its blood circulation at the hair follicles and thus promote growth,” notes Thibault. A technique shared by Lauren from the blog Lauren Inthehair: “I regularly perform hair masks preceded by a good head massage with the pulp of my fingers and performing circular gestures.”
The yeast of beer
A brewer’s yeast cure of up to three months will bring B vitamins to the body, known to have effects on cell renewal and tissue repair. Note that beer yeast is not recommended for people suffering from gluten intolerance, candidiasis or digestive problems.
The original tip but which can work according to Thibault, “an onion juice mixed with a spoon of honey that is applied to the scalp to activate circulation and promote growth”. Indeed, the rich sulphur composition of the bulb will revive the production of collagen tissues. On the other hand, it is better not to be sensitive to the smell.
Rich in fatty acids and vitamins E, the reputation of castor oil to promote the growth of eyelashes and hair is well established. If Thibault recommends mixing it with an infusion of rosemary before coating her hair, Justine uses it “regularly pure mask before shampoo. It works pretty well even if it doesn’t cause miracles,” she says on the Styles Room. Angélica Alcantara naturopath in Paris, recalls: “This is not an immediate remedy. So you have to add this oil to your routine and be constant for at least two or three months to see long-term effects. ‘
Lauren regularly uses castor oil as a cure for about a month, coupled with other vegetable oils and essential oils. I apply well in roots -because this is where the hair grows- a trio of organic vegetable oils of mustard, castor and coconut and I add five to ten drops of essential oil of Bay St Thomas that slows down the hair fall and stimulates the growth. I also make coconut milk masks which is known to accelerate hair growth. I put it this time on all the hair because in addition to stimulating the roots the coconut milk moisturizes perfectly the lengths. It’s a great treatment to do twice a week for a month.”
The power supply
For Thibault, no secret, hair is the barometer of health and healthy hair requires a balanced diet. Deficiencies can cause bad hair growth, making it important to pay attention to your diet by eating plenty of fruits and vegetables.” And Lauren from the blog Lauren Inthehair added: “I see hair like plants that need to be watered often for them to grow. So I drink as much as I can during the day.”
Refer to the lunar calendar when cutting your hair
More mystical but effective according to Lauren, cut her hair according to the moon. You’ll always be cutting in the ascending moon, that is, one or two days before the full moon or the same day. Never in the descending moon.” We know that the moon has an influence on the tides, the earth’s crust, animals and plants, so why not on the hair?
