It’s time for some serious hair growing, and it’s perfect timing because we’ve got all the information you need to grow that perfect coif. You’re going to need a few hair care products to get that full head of hair you always dreamed of having, and we’ve got you covered. With just a few easy steps, you can be on your way to becoming the next Edward Cullen.

The History Of Hair

We all know what hair is and what it does, but let’s take a trip down memory lane to cover the basics. Your hair is made up of dead cells called keratin that are interlocked together to create one big, bad boa constrictor. It’s a form of protein that can grow (yes, pun intended) about two inches each month. When you reach the age of eighteen, the follicles deep inside your scalp begin to produce smaller hair strands that fall out in a gentle rain. That’s what makes you feel like a newborn babe every time you step into the shower because the water is falling on your head just like the drops did the first time you were born.

Keratin is basically the same for humans and other animals, so you’re going to have the same basic needs when it comes to nourishing your locks. You need the right food to fuel your strands and you need the right hydration to keep them standing on end. For years, men have been styling their hair with wigs and hairpieces because nature dealt them a bad hand. If you really want to grow that perfect, full head of hair that you’ve always dreamed about, you’re going to have to make some major lifestyle changes. Luckily for you, we’re going to lay out the steps to take before you hit your teen years, so you can begin styling your hair the Edward Cullen way before your friends know what happened.

Get A Hair Diet

If you want to grow that perfect head of hair, you’re going to have to take a serious look at how you fuel your strands. You’ve probably been eating the same thing for the last twenty years, which isn’t good for your hair. While there are a lot of foods that are great for your overall health, your hair needs a special diet to grow the best it can. You need to cut out the junk food and start eating lots of vegetables. Your body needs the right nutrition to function properly, and your hair needs it too.

You have a couple of options here. You can either follow a vegan diet or a vegetarian diet, which means you don’t eat meat or fish. The former will give you tons of nutrients and fiber that your body needs, and the latter will keep those collagen and iron levels high. If you’re not sure which one to go with, it might be a good idea to try both and see how your hair grows with both diets. You’re bound to find a combination that works best for you.

Get A Skin Cream

You’re going to need to put some good skin care products on your scalp, and the best products for that are hair-specific. We’re not talking about any old lotion or serum here because those products are designed to moisturize your hair and keep it looking healthy and natural. Creams aren’t greasy, which makes them ideal for use in the shower or before you leave for work. You can choose from a few different options here. Some people like the drugstore drugstore creams because they’re cheap and effective, but if you’re looking for the best and don’t mind paying a bit more, there are a couple of options you should try.

Find Out Your Hair’s True Color

One of the things that makes Edward Cullen so special is that his hair is a precise mix of colors. It starts reddish-brown and then turns into auburn as it gets darker. The trick is that he knows how to use the right products and mix them together in just the right way. You’re not going to be able to replicate that exact look without using the same products and applying them in the same way, which is why it’s important to find out what your hair’s true color is beforehand.

This is where most people trip up. They assume that because their hair is auburn in color that it must be full of iron and healthy. The truth is that the color of your hair doesn’t dictate how it’s going to grow. You can have brown hair and still have bad hair in the form of breakage and dull strands. To know what texture and volume your hair really has, you need to try out a few different products and see which one gives you the results you want. If you’re not sure what your hair’s true color is, there are ways you can find out. You can consult with a professional colorist or you can do some serious investigating on your own. Once you know what it is, you can begin making the right choices for your needs and goals.

Use Sunscreen

Speaking of choices, you need to make sure that you’re always picking the right products for your skin. You’re going to be putting those products on your scalp, so it’s important that you choose products designed for that specific purpose. If you have sensitive skin and you know that sunscreen is one of the main causes of your skin’s irritation, then it might be a good idea to choose a moisturizing product with SPF 50+, at least. You should also use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection daily because the sun’s rays can be harmful even when shielded by clouds or the shade of an umbrella.

If you’re still not sure what sunscreen is best suited for your skin, it’s a good idea to consult with a dermatologist. They can advise you on the best products for your specific needs and skin tone. At the end of the day, though, you’re going to be putting the product on your scalp, so it’s best to choose a type of sunscreen that’s easy to wash off when you get wet or sweaty. For those hot and humid summer days, a waterproof sunscreen might be your best bet. It’s going to depend on how long and how often you want to wash your hair, so think about that before making a decision.

Get An Alopecia Scarf

If you’ve ever watched movies or read books in which the main character goes bald, you might have seen or read something about an alopecia scarf. These scarves are designed to cover up your hair completely, so if you’re not into long hair, it’s time to invest in some alopecia scarves. You’re going to wear this scarf on the outside of your clothes whenever you step out because it’s going to cover up that pesky hair you were born with. You’ll want to choose a pattern that blends in with your skin tone but won’t look too much like you’re trying to hide something. Remember, you’re going to be wearing this every day, so it’s important that you choose something that’s easy to wash and wear.

Get The Right Cut

As we mentioned before, your hair is made up of dead cells that are meant to fall out. The more chunks you have, the more volume you’re going to get because your hair will look more like a messy bun than one big, bushy ‘do. You might want to get a haircut that’s on the shorter side because those are the ones that grow the fastest and give you the biggest bang for your buck in terms of volume. Talk to your hairstyle and makeup artist about what lengths and styles will look best on you. Remember that you’re playing a character, which means you’ll have to go for something that’s not your usual ‘do.

Once you have all that done, it’s time to step into the shower. It might feel good to get all that water on your head, but it’s not going to do your hair any favors. The water is going to turn into a bit of a storm, causing more damage than anything else. The shower is a bad idea unless you’re in desperate need of a wash and rinse or you have an amazing lotion that needs to be absorbed by the hair. Otherwise, it might be best to stay out of the shower or at least use the water wisely. Even if you do use the shower, make sure that you don’t overuse it. You might become dependent on the warm water because it feels so good when you wash your hair, especially after working out or wearing a swimsuit. It’s also the best way to get the chemicals out of your hair.
