Keep your scalp pores clear from buildup

May 29, 2012 -- Urban Salon Finder

If you regularly use a lot of styling products such as gel, hairspray, cream, and pomade, remember to rinse your scalp everyday to avoid buildup and clogged pores.  Slicking the hair down with heavy gels or applying too much pomade or grease to the scalp are just a couple of examples of how blockage at the mouth of the hair follicle can occur.  Blockage can lead to scalp infection, damage and reduced hair growth, so it is important to wash your hair and scalp regularly.  Keep your scalp pores clear, and try to use water-soluble styling products whenever possible.

Potatoes are rich in many vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, Folic Acid, and Vitamin B Complex, which are all very beneficial for your hair.  The following is a well-known natural remedy to accelerate hair growth:  Peel and then boil 3 to 4 potatoes for about 15 minutes.  Remove the potatoes and let the water cool.  Wash your hair and then rinse it with the potato water.  The potato water will strengthen your hair roots and energize your scalp.  For best results, use the water the same day.

You should know that hair can grow in different patterns

Some people have uneven hair growth patterns that can be caused by cowlicks, double crowns, whorls, or a combination of these characteristics.  Cowlicks are portions of hair that grow strongly to the left or right usually on the crown or at the front of the hairline and sometimes at the nape of the neck.  Double crowns are two areas of hair close to each other that have hair growing in opposite directions.  Whorls are sections of hair that grow in a circular pattern often at the nape or the crown.  It is important to know that everyone's hair does not grow in the same way or at the same pace.  If you are trying to grow your hair longer to obtain a particular style, you may have to endure uneven hair growth as you strive to reach your goal.
