     Why Isn't Your Growing? 
     7 tips to get on the right track!

A.P.I E. of Hair Care. 
      In nursing school, I learned the acronym A.P.I.E to problem solve. The same acronym can be used to solve hair issues.A- ASSESSMENT, P-PLANNING, I-IMPLEMENTATION and E-EVALUATION. This process is used in the health care field when dealing with health issues but it can also be utilized to solve hair issues.
Assessment: First you have to know what your specific hair issue is. Is your hair too dry, too soft, breaking or experiencing slow growth? The first step is identifying what the problem is.
Planning: Educate yourself on what the issues are and how to solve those issues. Develop a plan to get your hair healthy again. Your strategy may consist of things like deep conditioning your hair weekly, moisturizing twice a day, protective styling and /or trimming as needed. It is important to write down your plan so that you will easily be able to recall what you are going to implement.
Implementation: Work your plan. This can be the hard part so it is very important to stay consistent and dedicated. Some people may be super enthusiastic in the beginning but as time goes by, the enthusiasm may diminish. Because it this, I recommend that you take hair pictures monthly. This way you will be able to see your progress. Pictures don’t lie.  This will keep your motivation going and inspire you to keep moving forward.
Evaluation: This should be done after roughly 2-3 months. This is the time that you evaluate your plan.  Is your plan working? Is your hair progressing as expected? Does you plan need to be slightly changed? This is the moment when you decide if you are on the right road or if you need to revise your plan.  If revision is necessary, it’s all good! Just move forward with a slightly different plan.
Check out these 7 tips!

     MOISTURE PROTEIN BALANCE

      Did you know that you can ‘over moisturize’ your hair? Many people don’t know this fact. Over moisturized hair can lead to breakage. Be sure that your hair is properly balanced with moisture and protein. This will greatly reduce breakage. Read on……..
            1. Retention is the goal.  If your goal is to retain length, realize that unbalanced hair riddled with split ends will break just as fast as it grows. This is the reason many people will say “My hair will not grow”. This is so far from the truth. Hair will continuously grow from the scalp daily but if the hair is breaking at the same rate that it is growing, the hair will appear not to have grown at all. In actuality, length is not being retained.  There is a continuous cycle of growth and breakage that is occurring. This cycle will never end unless you become aware and stop the breakage. The goal is to let those inches add up by keeping the hair balanced with moisture and protein. Healthy ends will not break.
       2. This is MAJOR! Maintain a great moisture and protein balance in the hair to prevent breakage. As mentioned previously, too much moisture will cause the hair to be very soft and will cause breakage. Using too much protein in your regimen will cause the hair to become very hard and brittle. This will also lead to breakage. Keeping a balance is very important to prevent breakage and promote length retention.
       3. How do you know which one your hair needs? I get a lot of questions about how to get started with maintaining a great moisture /protein balance. How do you know which one your hair needs? After washing and deep conditioning your hair, look at a shed hair strand. Lightly pull the strand of hair. If your hair is spongy or gummy when it is wet, more protein is needed. If (when wet) it breaks right away when you pull (without elasticity) you need more moisture.  If your hair is deficient of protein, I would suggest that you start your regimen with a protein treatment for the first couple of weeks. If your hair is moisture deficient, start with a moisturizing deep treatment. Just listen to your hair and it will tell you what it needs.
Product Recommendations- The Hydratherma Naturals Moisture Boosting Deep Conditioning Treatment and/ or Amino Plus Protein Deep Conditioning Treatment will help get your hair into balance. Maintaining a nice moisture / protein balance is the key.

      4. Retaining length by balancing the hair throughout the week. Weekly balancing of moisture and protein levels may not be enough for most. If your goal is to have longer and thicker hair, be sure that you take care of your hair ends everyday by keeping them balanced with moisture and protein daily. If your hair growth is ½ inch per month and your hair breaks at the same rate, the length and thickness of your hair will remain the same. If you stop the breakage at the ends, length will be retained. You can do this by giving your hair a boost of moisture and light protein daily to keep it balanced.  Be sure that the protein that you add daily is very light so that protein overload will not occur.
Product recommendation for daily use- Hydratherma Naturals Protein Balance Leave In (adds light proteins to strengthen) and the Daily Moisturizing Growth Lotion (adds moisture and encourages growth). Daily use of our Protein Balance Leave In Conditioner and our Daily Moisturizing Growth Lotion along with sealing in moisture with our Hair Growth Oil will help you to maintain a nourishing balance during the week.

      5. Elasticity. What is it all about? A great measure of healthy hair is normal elasticity. Hair elasticity measures how much the hair will stretch and return to a normal state. Hair in great shape will stretch 20%- 50% of its original length. It will then return to its normal shape. This occurs without breaking. If breakage occurs, the elasticity is low. Balancing the moisture and protein levels will help you to maintain healthy elasticity.

      6.  Porous hair. What exactly is it?  Typically, overly porous hair is caused by chemical treatments, heat damage and over manipulation of the hair. Porosity varies from person to person.  It is the ability of moisture to enter and exit the hair.  Porous hair soaks up moisture quickly but loses it quickly as well. Overly porous hair can be more prone to breakage because of the spongy gaps along the hair strand. Those with porous hair tend to need a bit more protein in their hair regimen to fill in the porous gaps and strengthen the hair.  After the porous gaps are filled moisture will better be retained as well.
    
      7. Maintain normal porosity. A porous hair strand has a raised cuticle layer with gaps along the hair strand. Porous hair absorbs too much moisture which sounds great right? The problem is that the strand also leaks out moisture.  This prevents moisture retention. Overly porous hair tends to be chemically treated, damaged in some way, dull and dry looking. One way to normalize porosity is to stop the practice that is causing the damage and slightly increase the use of protein in your hair care regimen as noted in previous tip.
