Growing long, healthy hair may seem like an impossible feat at times, as there are multiple reasons why hair may seem as if it is ‘not growing’. In reality, what you are experiencing can be excessive hair breakage or thinning hair from factors such as poor diet, lack of sleep, hormonal changes or stress. Your current hair care regimen may also be a culprit and needs adjusting. Whatever the cause, nothing stops breakage and repairs damage like ApHogee Hair Care! ApHogee has a line full of products made entirely in the US. The brand’s mission is to support healthy hair hair growth from the inside out and outside in.

Following any one of these suggestions from ApHogee will help get hair on track:

  1. Thinning Hair/Hair Loss- You may notice an excess amount of hair falling out or shedding. This is very common for women and men, as hormone levels and other factors can contribute to thinning hair at any age. Nutritional Supplement for Healthy Hair contains 18 vitamins and minerals essential for healthy hair growth plus 5 botanical extracts shown to stimulate scalp and foster new hair production. This supplement includes key vitamins, such as Vitamin E, B1, B2, B6 and B12 that may be lacking due to today’s lifestyles and diets.
  2. Follow A Longer Hair Regimen- Hair may not appear to be growing, but in reality it is breaking once it reaches a certain length. ApHogee recommends using this 3-step process to grow longer and healthier hair:

Step 1: Use a targeted shampoo like the Shampoo for Damaged Hair as it provides extra protein for damaged or compromised strands.

Step 2: After shampooing, use a treatment with both high protein and high emollient content such as Keratin Two-Minute Reconstructor .

Step 3: Apply an anti-breakage leave-in treatment (especially for those who use hot tools). Keratin and Green Tea Restructurizer is perfect as it helps reduce breakage and adds body back to hair. For those with curls, Curlific! Moisture Rich Leave-in is ideal, as it provides heat protection and locks moisture into the hair.

  1. Adjust Styling Regimen – Take a break from processing hair or other chemical treatments, especially highlights and perms, that can cause hair breakage. Also, reducing the level of heat on all hot tools and using heat protectant spray is also something to adopt as the less heat damage to your hair, the less breakage the hair will experience. Another adjustment to consider would be to eliminate tight ponytails, rubber bands, tight braids, etc. from your style routine. The tension from the bands can cause needless breakage and excess hair to fall out. Try using a silk or cloth scrunchie instead!
  2. See Your Stylist Lastly, it is always important to remember that going to your stylist for regular trim every 6-8 weeks is key for hair growth. Keeping your ends trim and neat will lessen damage and breakage to your hair and help your hair to grow faster and thicker.
