Encouraging Hair Growth

Trouble with your tresses? Want to accelerate hair growth naturally without questionable chemicals? Look no further for our guide to natural, nourishing and growth-enhancing hair care.

First things first, at Amelia Nour we evangelise that beauty comes from the inside out. On this note with regards to haircare, this translates to: you are what you eat! The best (vegan) foods to eat to encourage hair growth include: avocados (a powerhouse for hair growth as its high levels of vitamin E improve blood circulation, therefore helping to fortify the hair follicles), good old quinoa (this whole grain is a source of zinc, deficiencies of which have been linked to brittle hair!) and humble beans (beans are also high in cell-renewing zinc and other hair-healthy nutrients, including iron, biotin and folate)!

Also, work from where it all starts: your roots. Massaging your scalp (sounds hilarious, but ideally upside down!) with an oil or even without stimulates and nurtures the hair follicles, allowing them to be surged with freshly oxygenated blood and nutrients. Try to do this for five minutes daily, results from this free top-tip have been seen by some within weeks! Not to mention, head massages feel beautiful and can be easily included in your self care ritual. 

And finally, the obvious ones: minimise washing (try two washes per week, hardcore, we know!) to allow your natural oils to moisture your hair; and, minimise heat exposure to keep those ends safe. For your quickest race to the finish line, here are our highest rated growth enhancing products that we can't praise enough...
