Just so you know there are no straight shortcuts to growing long and luscious locks. On an average, our hair grows about a half an inch every month. There is the host of factors that promote healthy and strong hair which includes your diet, general health and fitness levels, genes and overall lifestyle and mindset that affect the rate at which your hair grows.
You can enhance your hair growth by maintaining them through a good well-balanced diet and care. We trust more on hair growth products than a good diet that’s where we miss the mark.
Let’s see few ways in which you can make your hair grow faster.
1. Add Nature’s wonder herbs in your diet
Nature has given us so many gifts and herbs are one of them as they make your hair grow faster, too.
There are wonderful herbs around us like rosemary, sage, horsetail, catnip; nettle and burdock promote hair growth faster than other herbs. Especially rosemary is best for stimulating hair follicles and is excellent for hair growth. It not only promotes hair growth but adds a natural shine in hair.
The antioxidant present in green tea and polyphenols along with anti-inflammatory properties are also associated with hair growth. Most of the herbs give a good circulation that stimulates hair growth. You can herbs in your daily routine by drinking green teas and by mixing essential oils in your shampoo or bathing water.
2. Take Multivitamin and Herbal Supplements
For a healthy and fit body, you have to have a proper well-balanced diet. But to enhance the quality of your diet you can add supplements like biotin, flaxseed, kelp, folic acid, ginseng etc. B-complex vitamins are essential nutrients that aid faster growth of hair folic acid and biotin are two of those.
Before making any significant change in your diet and supplements kindly consult your doctor.
It goes without saying a diet rich in protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and essential vitamins & minerals is a prerequisite to a healthy hair growth. Always pick foods that are high in Vitamins A, B, C and E, selenium, iron, copper, zinc, and magnesium. Eat a healthy well-balanced diet, don’t ditch food groups, and stay active.
3. Use Castor Oil
Omega 3 fatty acid, vitamin E, and omega-9 castor oil is really a great option for hair growth naturally. As castor oil is quite sticky you can mix it with coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil. Massage your scalp with this oil and let it stay for 30 to 45 minutes and wash it.
4. Massage Your Scalp
Massage is essential for the scalp as it promotes the blood flow and stimulates the hair follicles. Once in a week, you can deep condition your hair with a hot oil treatment or with some hair mask.
5. Flip your hair upside down
It sounds corny, right? But it works as flipping your hair upside down improves circulation even two to four minutes a day will do the trick.
6. Stay stress-free
Stress is the invisible and the most crucial factor that contributes to hair loss. It is believed that stress can disrupt the hair cycle and trigger hair to a fall out phase. If you want your hair to grow better try and look for ways to minimize stress in your life.
You can try doing something you enjoy doing any recreational activity, meditate, breathing exercise, or other forms of relaxation techniques. Along with that be sure to get beauty sleep as growth hormone is released during sleep.
