While you can’t put hair back that has broken off, you can follow some easy steps to help the hair grow back faster.
It's not a bad idea to start taking some hair vitamins. Keep in mind, you should always talk to your doctor before adding in any extra vitamins and supplements, but once you get the ok, then go for it. You can also talk with your Doctor to see if there is something he can recommend that will help. Sometimes there are hair growth serums that can be beneficial. This will help the issue internally.
Hair Care ProductsNow that you are working on the inside, lets talk about what you can do on the outside. When it comes to hair care products not all are created equal. We know that you are well aware of this. To break it down for you, you will need to treat both the exterior of the hair (the cuticle) as well as the interior of the hair. The goal, to repair, hydrate and improve the health of the hair from the inside out.
This is why we especially love our Iles Formula products. They are created with the health of your hair in mind. Protecting the hair from the inside out, you will see INSTANT results on ALL hair types. With that being said, lets share with you a bit about each of our formulas.
Shampoo: Our signature SHAMPOO is sulfate free + paraben free + silicon free. Even though it's sulfate free it does have an abundance of lather...which is a huge plus for sulfate free. The trick = add more water once the shampoo is on the hair to wake up the root extract that delivers this abundance of mousse.

Conditioner: The jewel of our haircare line, the signature CONDITIONER is the reason ILES FORMULA care range was born.

Mask: The Iles Formula haute performance MASK was developed to strengthen and nourish. Selected raw ingredients make up the most sumptuous cocktail for hair and scalp, without weighing the hair down. Macroloba seed oil, tucuma butter are sourced from the Amazon, silk proteins from Japan, nut oils from Australia with an infusion of vitamin E, panthenol and B5. It's a good idea throughout pregnancy to be sure to apply the mask once per week to help with the health of your hair.
Don’t skimp on haircuts. Your hairstylist recommends 4-6 weeks for a reason. It’s not just to see your beautiful face faster. Keeping those ends cleaned up, even if it’s just a small dusting of the edges will result in faster hair growth and eliminate split ends.
Many won’t want to believe this, but nutrition plays a major role in the health of your hair. If your hair is not feeling its best, try changing up what you are eating and drinking. We all know half our weight in liters of water is essential for hydration. Lack of hydration causes the skin and hair to be very dry. So up the water intake and you will for sure see an improvement. Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your diet. The easiest way to get a ton of veggies is to juice. Incorporating even just 1 juice a day that is loaded with a variety of greens will make an impact on your hair health and growth.
