How To Grow Your Hair Long? ~ Billy Caputo ~
If you’re looking to find way on how to make your hair grow fast, then look no further! A few changes and tweaks to your hair care routine can make your hair grow faster by ensuring your locks are healthy and do not break. In fact, that is the secret to growing your hair faster — getting rid of all the environmental factors that result in hair loss and thus, hindering hair growth.
Condition Your Hair
Keeping your locks hydrated and healthy is the first trick for growing hair faster. The Daily Mail advises using a deep-conditioning treatment once a week or opt for a more natural remedy. Apply oil to your hair and scalp for 20 minutes before washing your hair. Keeping your hair hydrated means it will be stronger and less likely to split.
Massage Your Scalp
While applying your shampoo and conditioner — or even oil for the aforementioned deep-conditioning treatment — massage your scalp. According to Marie Claire magazine, the massage will increase blood flow to your scalp, which, in turn, will help your follicles get the nutrients they need for proper and healthy hair growth.
Take A Supplement
There are plenty of supplements available on the market catered towards hair growth. For healthy hair, according to Prevention magazine, consider taking an omega-3 supplement, vitamin E, and/or Biotin, as they protect hair from damage and make your hair follicles stronger. It is also important to know the myths of supplements. For instance, taking Biotin will not be beneficial for hair growth unless you have a Biotin deficiency (a simple blood test can determine this.)
Many women also pop a prenatal vitamin believing that it helps make your hair grow faster, but the vitamin merely provides your body with elevated levels of iron, folic acid, calcium, and biotin. You can get all this — sans the folic acid — by popping a daily multivitamin. In fact, Cosmopolitan magazine cites experts who warn that taking prenatal vitamins is dangerous.
Eat a Hair-Healthy Diet
Making changes in your diet can equate to healthier and faster growing hair. If you can make changes to your diet, then you will not need to take many supplements! Lauren Conrad shares on her lifestyle website that the amino acid cysteine promotes hair growth, and is found naturally in eggs, poultry, garlic, onions, red peppers, yogurt, oatmeal, and broccoli. You can also find biotin naturally in vegetables, legumes, berries, goat and cow’s milk, and almonds.
Pamper Your Scalp
Your hair grows from your scalp, so it is essential to keep your scalp healthy, clean, and unclogged reports lifestyle website Into The Gloss. This means you should wash your hair regularly, making sure to eliminate build-up, and even opt for some at-home treatments that clarify your scalp and follicles (like the Ouidad Mediterranean Bay Leaf Exfoliating Hair & Scalp Treatment.)
Stay Away From Heat Tools
Heat tools take a toll on your hair and overusing heat-styling tools (e.g. hot rollers, straightening irons, and blowdryers) is a surefire way to slow down your hair growth, warns Refinery29. If you need to use a product, then consider a heat protecting product (say, the John Frieda Heat Defeat Protecting Spray.) Additionally, stay away from chemical treatments or coloring your hair too much, as both can do serious damage if overdone.
Get Frequent Trims
If you are trying to learn how to make your hair grow fast, then getting trims may seem counterintuitive. But trimming your hair on the regular is actually a helpful method in ensuring your hair is healthy shares Oprah.com. While frequent trims may not directly result in hair growth, they prevent hair loss. Getting a trim will get rid of split ends, which cause hair to break off, and ergo, prevent your hair from getting shorter and looking thin at the tips.
