Hair growth is a painfully slow process. Apart from hair extensions, there is not anything that will make your hair longer overnight, despite what some marketing campaigns may claim. However, that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to speed up your growth. The difference between normal and accelerated hair growth can come down to just a few minor tweaks to your lifestyle.
Practice Healthier Habits
Hair growth begins on the inside. If you want your hair to grow, you have to give it the nutrients it needs to thrive. Your body will prioritize it’s most important functions, and hair growth is just not one of them. Failing to eat enough calories, or get enough vitamins and nutrients means your hair can’t grow. Make sure you consume enough protein and fat, along with these 10 essential vitamins for hair growth.
Drink enough water so your hair follicles don’t dry out. Water is a friend of hair growth! If sticking to a consistent diet is something you struggle with, consider adding a hair growth supplement to your regime. It’s easy, and you can get all of the vitamins you need in one convenient package!
Be Careful with Cotton
Cotton is really harsh on your hair, and unfortunately, we have it in almost all of our clothing, towels and sheets. The coarse texture can cause split ends, and create small craters on the hair shaft which results in frizzy, dry looking hair.
When your hair is wet and fragile, cotton can be especially damaging. When you get out of the shower, resist the urge to wrap your hair up in a towel. Instead, gently blot your hair dry. If you have to wrap it, use microfiber towels to reduce friction. Also consider trying a satin or silk pillowcase to reduce friction from movement while you sleep.
Choose a Great Conditioner
Conditioning is extremely important for your hair. It replaces moisture naturally during the day, and from heat styling.
Choose a conditioner designed to support hair growth. Look for ingredients like coconut oil, castor oil, and biotin to support your healthy hair. Nourish Beaute VITAMINS Conditioner is formulated with the natural botanical complex, Baicapil™, clinically shown to stimulate hair growth.
Massage Your Scalp Frequently
Taking a few minutes each day to massage your scalp can help your hair grow faster. When you massage, you stimulate the blood flow to that area. Increased circulation and blood flow means more nutrients are delivered to the follicles, supporting your hair growth efforts. Some people choose to massage their scalp while they are letting their hair growth shampoo sit on there head, while others choose to do it at different times of the day. Whatever time you choose, two short minutes can make a world of difference in your growth rate.
