Why you may experience lackluster hair growth

You’ve got all the products, but why won’t our hair grow in the first place? There's nothing quite as disheartening as feeling like your hair growth journey is at a standstill, but don’t worry. If you're experiencing a lack of hair growth, you're not alone. 

Several factors can contribute to this frustrating phenomenon, from internal imbalances to external stressors. Here are some common reasons why your hair growth may not be doing what you want it to… 

Nutritional deficiencies

A balanced diet rich in essential vitamins and minerals is very important for healthy hair growth. Nutrients such as protein, iron, zinc, biotin, vitamins A and E, and omega-3 fatty acids play key roles in maintaining the health and vitality of your hair. Deficiencies in these nutrients can lead to weakened hair follicles and slowed growth. Ouch! 


Hormonal imbalances

As if we don’t have enough problems, now it’s stopping us from living our Blake Lively alter egos? Fluctuations in hormone levels, such as those experienced during pregnancy, menopause, or thyroid disorders, can impact hair growth cycles and even cause hair loss (cry). Hormonal imbalances may lead to excessive shedding or stunted growth, leaving your hair looking thin, brittle, and craving for length.


Stress and lifestyle factors

If you put yourself through the wringer, chances are, it’s having an impact on your trust locks, too. High levels of stress, poor sleep quality, and unhealthy lifestyle habits can take a toll on your hair health. Chronic stress can disrupt the hair growth cycle, leading to increased shedding and slower growth. 

Additionally, habits like smoking and excessive alcohol consumption can impair circulation to the scalp, preventing nutrient delivery to the hair follicles. So no more midweek parties. It’s time to look after yourself. 


Environmental damage

City girlies, who’s with us? Pollution ruins your hair, as much as being in the sun! Exposure to harsh environmental factors such as pollution, UV radiation, and extreme weather conditions can damage the hair cuticle, inhibit growth, and even cause breakage! Yuck. UV rays can weaken the hair shaft and cause dryness and breakage, while pollution particles can clog the scalp pores, leading to inflammation and hair loss. So next time you’re jetting off for your summer vacay, remember your hair needs protection too. 


Overprocessing and chemical damage

If we haven’t told you enough, those bleaching days from yesteryears are the ENEMY (not just because of the photograph proof) but they damage your hair like no tomorrow. Chemical treatments like bleaching, dyeing, and perming can compromise the structural integrity of the hair, leading to breakage, split ends, and overall damage. 

Overuse of heat styling tools can also weaken the hair shaft and disrupt the hair growth cycle, resulting in slower growth and diminished volume. So put down the iron. It’s time for some tender loving care and some gentle beauty. 


Above all else, always check the ingredients 

Before you start splurging and running around the store on a hair quest to restore your long locks to health, take a moment to decode the magic within each bottle. By scrutinizing the ingredients, you're not just unlocking the secrets to healthier hair, you're ensuring your hair fairytale will flow as it should. Remember to keep in mind the products that are right for your hair, and prevent doing the things that aren’t (AKA those extra shots).

As you journey towards your own version of Rapunzel's castle (minus the locked-up part), get ready for a long adventure ahead of you. All takes a bit of patience and some self-care, and hair magic awaits.
