How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster
If you are desperately trying to find an answer to the question about how to make you hair grow faster, you should realize a couple of things. Every person's hair grows at different rates (on an average from 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch in a month). Some people do nothing for it, but their hair grows extremely fast. Others try every method they get to know, but it seems that their efforts are fruitless.
Despite a lot of myths about this subject, there are no scientifically substantiated ways of increasing the hair growth speed. Nevertheless, most specialists share the opinion that certain conditions and measures can make your hair grow faster. Let's consider them.
When you are healthy, you hair grows at a healthy rate. This is self-evident. So you should exercise regularly, sleep enough, eat well, etc. Give up smoking. Do not take alcoholic drinks. Try to be in the fresh air as much as possible.
It is considered that a balanced diet can make your hair grow a bit faster. Dietitians say that your hair requires sufficient amount of protein, vitamins, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acid1, and zinc. Your diet should include cheese, beans, cabbage, citrus fruits, fresh vegetables, spinach, whole grains, apricots, fish oil, brewer's yeast, flaxseed oil, salmon, etc.
Head massage improves blood circulation, which, in turn, helps follicles to secrete oil and makes your hair grow faster. Stimulate blood in the scalp with daily massaging. Do it every day for five minutes. You do not need to invite a professional masseur. It is enough to massage the scalp with the fingertips in circular motions.
Do not forget to trim your hair regularly. When you get rid of split ends, the hair becomes healthier. So try to visit a beauty parlor once in a month. To tell the truth, it will hardly make your hair grow faster, but it prevents its damage, which is not less important.
Do not wash your hair too often, because it will lose moisture and become prone to split ends. Three-four times a week will be sufficient. Use a mild shampoo and a light conditioner.
Brushes and combs must be always clean. The comb should be wide toothed. And do not brush the hair constantly. It can cause damages.
If you want to have healthy and fast growing hair, avoid mechanically or chemically curling and straightening, crimping or bleaching. Heating tools and chemicals are dangerous for hair follicles. Their usage can lead to hair breakage or its loss.
Use chemical free hair products consisting of natural ingredients.
Your hair may grow slowly because of medicines that you take. Ask your doctor about their possible side effects. Some medicines not only slow down hair growth rate, but even cause its shedding.
Conditioning masks and conditioners will make your hair look healthy and help it grow. Of course, they must be composed of natural components and be of high quality.
Here are some more tips which will do well to your hair:
Make upside-down head movements for about thirty seconds every day. They will awaken hair follicles and stimulate hair growth.
Try not to brush wet hair.
Use a heat protection spray when you blow-dry the hair.
Drink much clean water.
If you want to make good progress and increase your hair growth rate visibly, try to follow all these pieces of advice. Neglecting just one of them may bring all your efforts to nothing.
