Once applied, this super hair elixir needs to be combed or brushed through the hair to ensure an even distribution. You should be brushing your hair before bed each night anyway to distribute the natural oils down the lengths to keep the ends as moisturised as the root - this will also stop your hair getting as ‘greasy’ so quickly. Taking care of your scalp is the most important factor when trying to grow your hair. Think of a house plant - it won’t grow if the soil is dry and cracking - so feed your hair from within by eating lots of protein and keeping your body, skin and scalp full of moisture.
Our top tip for ensuring rapid growth is to keep trimming it. Yes, we’re serious. Like a plant, you’ve usually got to cut it in order for it to grow - especially when it comes to getting rid of split ends. Try and trim your hair on a regular basis so that no part of your hair is dry or splitting and that you’re only keeping the healthy hair on your head. The easiest way to get rid of split ends is to part your hair in four sections and taking each section, twist in a spiral, trimming any hairs that stick out of the spiral until you cannot see any more. Alternatively, salons can give you a rough trim in under 20 minutes if you ask for it specifically.

Hair dyes can be very damaging to the hair and can cause dryness, split ends and breakages, which all prevent your hair from growing. Use ammonia and bleach free dyes or opt for a completely natural henna dye if you really need to cover greys or touch up your roots.
Our final tip is to avoid heat styling where possible. We know frizz is a nightmare, but following the previous tips, including the use of Samol’s Hair and Scalp Oil should eliminate frizz too as you’re smoothing the hair’s cuticle too. If you must use heat, use it on a low heat and always use a heat protecting spray or serum to decrease the possibility of lasting damage.
