If your hair grows achingly slowly or gets to a certain length then suddenly stalls, you’ll want to start scrubbing your scalp daily and babying the hair you have. Here’s why.
1. Rub and Scrub. You wouldn’t just stick your face under a spout to clean it, would you? Similarly, your scalp needs to be touched. “New hair has trouble sprouting through a layer of dirt, oil, and old skin cells,” says Kingsley, who suggests massaging your scalp vigorously with a scalp brush or the pads of your fingers for two minutes preshower.

2. Pamper hair. Look for shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizing shea butter or avocado oil. They keep strands saturated — key for growth since brittle, splitting strands break off before they can get long, says San Francisco derm Paradi Mirmirani. Check out how to party-proof your curls.
3. Rethink Your Styling Routine. Heat (from appliances) and friction (from brushes) can damage hair’s protective covering, or cuticle, making strands susceptible to snapping off. Detangle with only a wide-tooth comb, use heat-shielding sprays prestyling, and declare Sunday a lazy-do day. “Laying off the blow-dryer or iron once a week can help,” Serratore says. For easy waves, braid wet hair; unravel when it’s dry. Watch this video to get loose, sexy waves.
