Have you ever wondered what classifies hair as healthy or damaged? I mean, you can probably just look at it and tell the difference between healthy and damaged hair, but do you really know what is going on up close? In this post, I am going to teach you about five attributes of healthy hair…
Did you know that each strand of hair goes through three stages of hair growth over the course of its life? Let me explain… The Three Stages of Hair Growth: Anagen is the active growth phase. Hair grows from the root, inside the hair follicle, with rapid cell division. During this phase, your hair will grow about 1 cm every 28 days.

Olive oil contains essential fatty acids and will help moisturize your hair. With this easy trick, you’ll never have to buy hot oil treatments again, or go to the salon (unless you live in Carson City, in which case you should come give me your moneys).

I remember reading that you can apply castor oil to your eyebrows or eyelashes, which lubricates the hair follicle and makes them grow faster. I do plan on trying this olive oil hair treatment once a week (which is the recommended amount) and I will inform everyone on the progress of my hair growth.
