If you’ve gotten a short haircut and are missing your nape hair, don’t worry. Growing back nape hair is possible! There are a few things you can do to speed up the recovery process and make sure that your hair grows back looking healthy and thick. If you’re ready to grow out your cut, get started with these tips:
Make sure that you’re taking care of your hair. It’s important to use products that are specially formulated for short hair, and it’s also a good idea to keep up with regular trims. If you’re going to be using heat on your hair, make sure that you’re only doing so when necessary.
Shorten your relaxed ends gradually.
If you’re growing nape hair and want to keep it curly, then the first thing you need to do is cut your relaxed ends gradually. This means cutting a few inches off every month or so. If you cut too much at once, the root of your relaxed hair will be exposed and this can cause damage that makes your natural hair weaker and more prone to breakage.
If you want to keep your curls at bay while growing out relaxed ends (or just don’t like how short they look), then don’t cut them too close to either side of the scalp (which would expose more roots) or at all near the nape (where there are fewer natural curls).
Avoid heat and chemical treatments.
Avoid heat and chemical treatments, if you can. Heat and chemical treatments are bad for your hair, especially when they’re done frequently or over a long period of time.
Avoid using heat on a regular basis. If you must use it, use it sparingly: once every couple of weeks at most (unless your hairstylist advises otherwise).
Don’t do any chemical treatments unless absolutely necessary—and even then, only opt for ones that have been approved by the FDA as safe for human use!
Wash less frequently.
If you are like most people, you wash your hair every day or every other day. You may even shampoo and condition it daily. While this is a great way to keep the natural oils of the scalp at bay, it also strips away the natural oils that are in place on the scalp and can lead to dry skin.
Washing less frequently will allow your scalp to fully develop its own natural oils so that when you do wash your hair, there will be enough of these natural oils left for as long as possible between washes. The less often you wash your hair (and/or use products that strip away these essential oils), the healthier your mane will be overall!
Use moisturizing conditioner and hair oil.
To protect your hair, use a moisturizing conditioner and hair oil. A leave-in conditioner can also be helpful to keep moisture in your strands. You can also try using a deep conditioner, hair mask or serum before you wash it out with shampoo—these will help lock in the moisture and make your hair look shiny.
However, if you want to get rid of frizziness and flyaways without having to spend too much time on it (or money), then try using some of these options:
- A moisturizer that works wonders for thickening up thinning nape hair is Shea Butter. It helps add volume while preventing further breakage from occurring due to its intense hydrating properties.
- Coconut butter is another excellent choice because not only does it smell great but also has many health benefits such as increasing elasticity which makes for thicker strands!
Vitamins are important for overall health, as well as promoting hair growth. There are a few vitamins that you can take to promote hair growth: biotin, vitamin E, and vitamin B12. However, it’s important to avoid taking too much of certain vitamins in order to avoid serious side effects. For example: if you’re taking too much vitamin A (found in fish oil), this can lead to liver problems; too much vitamin D can cause calcium deposits in your kidneys; and too much iron can lead to anemia. If you’re not sure what vitamins are right for you or if your doctor has recommended any specific supplements then be sure to talk with them first before buying any supplements at the pharmacy or health food store!
Trim only the ends of your hair.
- Trim your hair every two to three weeks. When trimming your hair, use a comb and mirror to make sure you’re cutting even ends. The scissors should be sharp, otherwise they’ll damage your hair and cause it to break off sooner. If you don’t want to part with your long locks just yet, try using a product like shears or clippers that will cut off only a small amount at once. Also, don’t forget about the back of your neck!
- To remove loose hairs after trimming, use a comb before checking in the mirror again for any strays or uneven spots on either side of where you were cutting
Don’t stress yourself out!
Stress can cause hair loss in many ways. It can make your body produce too much cortisol, which is a stress hormone. When you have too much cortisol in your system, it starts to break down the proteins that are important for healthy hair growth and repair. Stress also makes people more likely to pull out their hair when they’re feeling anxious or frustrated—and this can lead to bald spots at the temples or around the forehead.
Other types of stressors that can damage your hair include:
- Sitting under harsh lighting for long periods of time (like working under fluorescent lights)
- Tight braiding and styling techniques (like cornrows)
- Chemical treatments such as bleaching or coloring
Growing back nape hair after having a short cut will take time but you can use the techniques listed above to speed things up
As we mentioned earlier, growing back nape hair after having a short cut will take time, but you can use the techniques listed above to speed things up. However, if you’re looking for an even quicker solution, there are two other options:
- Hair transplant
- Hair extension
Hair transplant is a surgical technique that moves individual hair follicles from one part of the body to another. It’s typically used to treat male pattern baldness, but it can also be used in other areas for people who have lost their nape hair due to breakage or other reasons.
