There is so much to consider that comes into play when we make the decision to grow our hair and even try bring back loss of hair, which is why we are here to break it down for you real simple. Some of the top AND simple factors to leading 'lack of hair growth' to correct is:

Heat styling/lack of protectant:

Heat strips your hair of moisture from the inside out especially when this is done so on the daily, dehydrating the hair and making it prone to breakage. Heat can also cause unwanted color changes and molecular changes in the structure of your hair which upsets the strong bonds in your hair causing them to become brittle and snap before it has the chance to grow.


Wearing tight hair ties/also when wet:

Unnatural bends in your hair, and the way your elastic is tied around your hair can cause breakage. The tighter your style and the more often you wear it, the more damage that can occur. Be especially careful tying your hair up when it's wet. Wet hair is even more fragile and will break more easily. Thin elastic bands are great when used correctly but a thicker fabric band is recommended for less of a sharp bend and stretch to your hair.

Avoiding hair cuts:

When your ends are so dry you can no longer disguise them with Argan Oil there is a high chance you were due for a hair cut weeks ago. Our LOLA recommendation is 6 weeks to keep optimum hair growth and yes ladies your hair will still grow just a lot more happier and to more extreme lengths when the ends are nipped off. A 6 week hair cut give you a growth chance and keeps your hair style thriving. 

Quality of hair care products:

When it comes to the health of our hair for potential growth, keeping our hair happy from our Zone1 (roots) to our zone3 (ends) is crucial. Removing the correct amounts of sebum is an important factor that happens while shampooing your soon to be long locks. Cheaper shampoos can strip our hair too far back or create silicone blocks on our hair which can also cause reactions to colouring services. keeping up with Biotin, moisture and protein rich treatments weekly is always helpful.
