Do you want to make your hair grow faster so that you can sway them around like a mermaid?
Make a wish before going to bed and wake up the next morning with a head full of gorgeous and super long hair. Jokes apart. Practically, there is no magical way to grow you hair super fast and super long (unless you’re using hair extensions or wearing a wig.)
Typically, hair only grows about half an inch in a month and your lifestyle, health, diet and genetic factors can hinder hair growth.
So instead of daydreaming about getting long hair and lusting over celebrities’ “oh, so amazing” hair, try these simple but effective tips to make your hair grow faster.
Here Are The Tips And Remedies To Make Your Hair Grow Faster
For God’s Sake, Dump Your Massive Towel, NOW:
Yes, you read it right. Your super soft bath towel is not so soft on your hair. Why? Because your hair strands get caught in the woven fibers of the towel and the result—broken strands of hair on your favorite towel.
Therefore, swap the towel with an old but clean, cotton T-shirt because it’ll absorb the water (not moisture) from the wet hair and prevent your hair from frizzing and breaking.
Conclusion: Less hair fall=More hair growth.
Brush Your Mane As If It Is Spun Of Gold:
Are you a firm believer of “the harder you brush, the faster it grows?” If yes, then you and only YOU are responsible for your lifeless hair.
Constant brushing causes physical harm to your hair and also causes breakage, especially when you detangle wet hair. Always start detangling from the bottom and work your way up, so that small tangles don’t become a large knot and result in hair loss.
You can opt for a boar bristle brush or wide tooth comb for a smooth and pain free detangling.
Strike A Perfect Balance In Your Shampoo Regime:
Do you wash your hair everyday because you think it’s a necessity? Please, stop abusing your poor hair and let them breathe a little.
Forget about growing, your hair will have a tough time simply trying to survive after being exposed to all those barbarous chemicals every single day. Therefore, never ever wash your hair more than thrice (twice, if you’ve curly hair) a week.
Whenever you shampoo, you need not to rub your hair vigorously, be gentle on your hair by only lathering up at your scalp. Also, massage your hair for 2 minutes, as it’ll stimulate the blood flow in your scalp and make your hair grow faster.
Your Hair Will Love Warm Oil Massages:
Pamper your hair with hot oil massage at least once a week. Massaging will promote blood flow to your scalp, which in turn stimulates the hair growth.
What You Have To Do:
- Slightly warm any oil (jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oil, aragon oil)
- Apply the oil gently in the scalp
- Massage in circular motion for 5 minutes
- After 30 minutes, rinse your hair as usual
These messages will not only relax your mind, but also make your tresses healthy and shiny, at one condition only–do it regularly.
TIP: Always use a conditioner (not on the scalp, but on the tips of the hair) after shampoo and use cold water as last rinse.
A Pair Of Scissors Is Your Best Friend:
Remember! You want long and healthy hair, not just long. Right?
We know that you don’t want to chop off any length. But split ends can hinder hair growth, by working their way up the strands, damaging hair and making them even shorter.
Therefore, you have to cut the dead ends off or you’ll pay for it in the long run. Trimming ¼th of an inch of your hair every 8-10 weeks is great for you.
Ditch The Heat Styling Tools:
Deep down in your heart, you know that the burnt smell your flat iron creates isn’t a great sign of what it’s doing to your hair. Stop abusing your hair with over styling because it damages your hair, leading to breakage and frizz.
If you want to use the heat, decrease the temperature and always use heat protectants to minimize the damage. Prefer non-damaging hair elastics to tie your tresses.
Also, if you keep on tying your hair in the same place every day, you’ll notice a line of breakage where the hair tie hits. Therefore, try a new hair more often.
You Are What You Eat, So Eat Healthy:
Waiting for your hair to grow can be a very tedious task. You can fasten it by eating a healthy diet.
Here is a list of foods that can make your hair grow fast:
Biotin, sometimes called vitamin H or vitamin B7, accelerates hair. That’s why people take biotin supplements to grow their hair.
Eggs are loaded with proteins and an excellent source of biotin and omega-3s. But, it’s not the egg white that will make your tresses beautiful and long, it’s the yolk.
NOTE: Eating too many egg whites can deplete and also block the absorption of biotin into the body.
This fish is loaded with Vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, protein along with B vitamins, including B12, and minerals. All these nutrients are essential to solve problems like dry hair, excessive hair loss and to enjoy proper hair growth.
Other fatty fish that you can be eaten to prevent hair loss are sardines, trout, herring and mackerel.
3. Bell Peppers:
Even minor deficiency of vitamin C can lead to split ends and dry hair that breaks easily. Yellow, red and green bell peppers are a colorful and delicious source of vitamin C and have nearly five and a half times more vitamin C than oranges.
Well, this is good news for your locks because vitamin C is an antioxidant, which strengthens the hair follicles and prevents breakage.
One of the most nutritious nuts—almonds make your hair grow faster and thicker due to their high biotin and magnesium content. Magnesium is considered to be an essential mineral for growing healthy strands and it’s deficiency within the body has been linked to hair loss.
5. Sweet Potato:
Beta-carotene, the precursor for vitamin A is necessary for all cell growth, including hair. Its deficiency can result in dry, dull and lifeless hair which can flake off into dandruff.
You should include sweet potatoes and other foods like carrots, butternut squash, dark green lettuces, asparagus, and pumpkin to your meals instead of taking vitamin A supplements as these are loaded with it.
These seven tricks to make your hair grow faster are to be followed religiously, otherwise you’ll not be able to achieve the desired results.
