I love my hair. It has its own unique personality. What’s important to me is that my hair be allowed to express its highest potential without any intervention beyond providing conditions for health in conjunction with other practical hair loving and beautifying tips.
Humans intervene in every aspect of our natural world down to the thoughts you think by influencing you psychologically to buy their products. Your drive to strive for enforced sameness is motivated by a psychological need to please and get approval. Where is your personal freedom in this equation?
To comply without questioning why you are complying to a proscribed standard of fashion fads delivered to you by people who’s only motivation is to surreptitiously manipulate you for their own profit while transmitting their coercion through mindless peer pressure and other social forces, feels like robotic behavior to me. Whose idea is it anyway?
Give your hair what it needs by creating an environment that encourages your hair to be as healthy as possible by following my hair loving and beautifying tips below which guarantee you grow beautiful shiny, soft, long, thick hair.
Have you ever felt a horse’s mane or tail? If you haven’t had the rare opportunity to pet a horse I can tell you that their hair feels extremely course and dry. That’s what some friends told me my hair felt like one day at a university party.
At one point during the party a few girlfriends started talking about hair and told me I had beautiful long red hair. Each one said they wished that their hair was long and red just like mine. My friends began touching my hair until one girl recoiled saying,”Your hair feels just like horse hair.”
That was the end of anyone wanting my hair. At least this realization helped improve their self esteem because they began to appreciate their own hair more once they realized they didn’t want course dry horse hair even if it was long and red. I, on the other hand, had never known my hair to be any other way.
Another problem plaguing me was my hair although long would never get any longer. It just stopped growing at a certain point. I wanted it to grow longer but it stayed at the same length for many years.
Then everything changed. My hair became very soft and shiny. It started growing longer and thicker than it ever had at any other time in my entire life when I applied my hair loving and beautifying tips:
1. Eat whole unprocessed foods
You probably know this already. Yet in forums I see people want and ask for new information not the “same old stuff.” If it’s sound advice that works, what else do you need?
Are you doing it? That’s all I care about. There’s a world of difference between knowing what to do and actually doing it. Knowing exists in the head. Doing exists in the gut. Get my free eBook now to see the diet I eat for beautiful shiny, soft, long, thick hair.
2. Eat a wide range of fresh fruit and vegetables including special emphasis on leafy greens daily
This may seem like a no brainer to many at a time when every day we have more health gurus and information about diet available. Since we know what to eat, why is the human race getting increasingly sicker at an alarming rate?

Fresh is best. Dried, canned, frozen or processed and packaged in any way is a far second in my opinion. Antioxidants are very fragile and I have serious doubts they survive being processed even though you see the food advertised as containing antioxidants. At least they did when they were fresh!
3. Eat healthy fats
If you’re eating your omega 3 fatty acids, avoiding most saturated fats and all trans fats and your hair is not as shiny, soft, long or thick as you would like then maybe your system is clogged with wastes, toxins and mucus.
This was my problem and I knew it because every time I ate my healthy fats I would heat up and get congested with thick yellow mucus. Sometimes I would get hot red itchy spots on the palms of my hands.
If you’re anything like me and having problems even though you’re eating healthy foods, you may need a safe dependable extended cleanse or detox. Get my free eBook now which outlines exactly what I eat to safely cleanse and heal.
You already know this but are you doing it yet? Get your circulation flowing. Your hair will love you for it.
5. Wash your hair with a clean gentle shampoo and conditioner as natural as you can find without preservatives and other toxic substances
This is a sure fire way to protect and preserve the overall health of your hair and body.
6. Use a shower filter
Chlorine and other chemicals ruin your hair.
7. Wear a swimming cap whenever you go swimming
Chlorine, other chemicals and salt wreak havoc on your hair.
8. Wash your hair with warm not hot water
Hot water is too harsh on hair causing it to dry out and break easily.
9. Do not squeeze or wring wet hair
Wet hair is fragile and breaks easily.
10. Never comb or brush wet hair
Wet hair is fragile and breaks easily. Wait for it to dry then brush.
11. Do not use a blow dryer
Let it dry naturally and avoid over drying your new luscious locks.
12. Do not pull your hair tight from the scalp or constrict your hair as in very taut braids, buns and ponytails
This helps avoid breaking your growing hair.
13. Avoid sun on your hair
Wear hats, hoodies and scarves. Hats are a beautiful way to express your mood and individuality.
14. Protect your hair from wind damage
Wear hats, hoodies and scarves.
15. Brush to minimize breakage
Bend over and brush your hair from the back of your neck forward over the top of your head with a good quality boar bristle hair brush. Follow with fingers to loosen any tangles. Do not use the brush to break through these tangles. Gently separate your hair with your fingers.
When you can brush all the way through from the back flip your hair back and gently brush the sides. The side hairs seem the most delicate compared to the rest of my hair. Only brush enough to gently place your hair where you want it. Using your own fingers is the best technique to prevent breaking delicate growing hairs.
16. Wash your hair when it feels heavy or greasy
How long I go between washing my hair depends on what I’m eating more than anything else. My hair stays clean the longest when I eat a high percentage of fresh fruits and vegetables daily while reducing intake of heavy fats and animal products.
When my hair is clean, it feels light, full and smooth to the touch with each hair free and hanging naturally. As it gets dirtier, it feels like the individual hairs are sticking together and it gets very flat all over. That’s when I wash it. If I wash it before it becomes noticeably dirty my hair quickly becomes too dry.
17. Stop taking birth control pills
I lost handfuls of hair every time I brushed or washed my hair while taking birth control pills. My hair loss stopped once I went off the pills. If you’re anything like me, you will need to become more creative about birth control if you want beautiful shiny, soft, long, thick hair.
18. Do not trim your hair
One day I complained to Jay that my hair had stopped growing. He told me if I continued to trim my hair regularly it would never grow any longer than the length I trimmed to because I was telling my roots they didn’t need to hold on to longer hair. He said trimming my hair made my roots weak.
He told me if I stopped trimming my hair my roots would practice weight lifting and get stronger and hold longer hair. I thought he was joking at first but he told me he wasn’t. I took his advice and my hair keeps growing longer to this day.
Once you see and feel your own beautiful shiny, soft, long, thick hair I’m sure you’ll include my hair loving and beautifying tips into your repertoire of health promoting natural comfortable living.
