We often get impatient when we are waiting for our hair to grow out, or when we set our hearts on another hairstyle which requires the hair to reach a different length. Here are some tips to help grow your hair faster naturally, and help strengthen your hair as it grows.
A healthy diet is important, giving hair the nutrients it needs for growth. Increase your protein intake and load up on important vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B, iron, zinc, magnesium and selenium.
Stay hydrated by consuming plenty of water a day. It helps to keep your hair healthy as dehydrated hair is brittle and prone to breakage.
Massage Your Scalp
Massaging your scalp increases blood circulation which brings needed nutrients to your hair roots.
Schedule regular hair trims to prevent split ends while you are growing your hair.
Condition Your Hair
Condition your hair after shampoo and use oils to nourish your hair to strengthen your hair while growing it longer.
Avoid stress if possible as stress can lead to hair falling out more. Minimise stress by finding ways to relax. Schedule pampering activities, exercise and even try meditation.
Adequate sleep helps the body to regenerate. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep consistently every night. Lack of sleep affects hair texture and increase the production of stress hormone which may cause more hair to fall out.
