Almost all girls like strong and long hair, as the healthy hair enhances the beauty. But it is very difficult to get such beautiful hair. Here are some mandatory tips which teach us how to grow hair faster than usual.- Check What You Eat
As we know well that diet plays an important role for the growth of healthy and lustrous hair. It is very important that you nourish them from outside as well as inside. A well balanced diet for healthy skin and hair should consist of fresh fruits and vegetables and should be followed religiously. You have to include nutrients such as Vitamin B12, zinc, iron and calcium as they prevent hair loss. You know that our hair is composed of “keratin”- a protein, so have a protein rich diet which consists of soybean, cheese, milk, fish, chicken etc. Stay away from that junk and processed food as it inhibits hair growth. So what you eat is the answer to how to increase hair growth.- Dietary Supplements
To regulate the growth of the hair naturally, include dietary supplements such as bio vitamins, multivitamins and omega 3 fatty acids. They are also found in green leafy vegetables, cereals, peas, fish, beans, almonds, yoghurt etc. However before taking any supplements in the form of tablets or capsules, consult your physician as some people may be allergic to them.- Drink More Water
Do you know that our hair consists of 95 % protein and 5 % water? Therefore it is important that you should drink 10-12 glasses of water daily, to keep your grow hair faster and keep it nourished and healthy.- Regular exercise
Regular exercise not only keeps our body healthy but also encourages hair growth. 20 minutes of regular exercise such as yoga, meditation, walking, jogging, dancing, cycling etc improves blood circulation and helps the nutrients to penetrate into our scalp.- Proper Sleep
Do not forget to include 8 hours of sleep in your daily routine. Lack of sleep causes hair fall, dark circles, pigmentation, dull skin and a stressful mind. A peaceful sleep is important for healthy mind and body. Try to sleep on silk pillowcase as it will be soft on your hair by causing less friction.- Regular Trimming
Split ends are one of the major reasons which inhibit hair growth. If your hair is dry and damaged, then you are bound to have split ends. Trim your hair every 3 months to get rid of split ends and encourage hair growth. Remember – never prick your split ends as it would further aggravate your problem.- Cleansing
Wash your hair regularly to keep it clean and healthy. The sebum produced by the oil glands form a layer over the scalp and inhibits the growth of hair. Do not use chemical laden products, instead opt for natural shampoos and conditioners. But frequent shampooing is also harmful as it will make it dry, stripped and prone to breakage.Wash your hair twice a week to keep it squeaky clean and healthy.- Hot oil Massages
Nothing can be more soothing than a hot oil massage with your favorite aromatic oils. Oil massage improves blood circulation to the roots of your hair and encourages hair growth. You can use various oils such as coconut, almond, olive, and jojoba or rosemary oil for regular massages. Use a towel dipped in hot water to cover your hair after the massage as it helps in penetrating the oil into your scalp opening the pores.- Protect Your Hair
Pollution, sun and dust can have adverse effects on your tresses. They make your hair dry and damaged by stripping off the natural oils from the scalp and inhibit the hair growth. Wear a hat or cover your head with a silk scarf when you step outside. Avoid tight hairstyles such as high ponytails, tight braids, cornrows as they put a stress on your hair making them loose form the roots and cause hair fall. Do not comb wet hair as they are easily prone to breakage.- Natural Hair Pack
Apart from all these, you obviously have the best and safest option of the various homemade remedies for hair growth. You can use amla, fenugreek seeds, onion juice, avocado etc for effective results. However these remedies may take a long time and thus you have to be patient with these.- Hair Extensions
The fastest way to make your hair appear longer is to use hair extensions. These are of varying lengths, straight or wavy and different colors used to accentuate your look. They look chic and trendy and are the quickest solution.- Simple Tricks To Make Your Hair Look Longer
Apart from hair extensions, there are a few hair styling options that make your hair look longer than it actually is. These could include straightening, middle parting, adding layers etc.- Consult a Dermatologist
If you have tried all the home remedies without any success or have the genetic disorder of hair fall, you can try prescription for a hair growth treatment. In this treatment, firstly consult a dermatologist so that he or she can study about your problem. By his or her advice, you can take supplements and undergo medications.- Homoeopathy For Hair Loss
We all are familiar with homeopathic treatment, as it has very less side effects as compared to allopathic treatments. They are clinically proven to give you effective but slow response. Be patient when you choose homeopathic treatment.- Rogaine for Hair Growth
Rogaine (minoxidil) is widely famous as the only non-prescription hair growth treatment. It is a topical treatment that stimulates hair growth and also prevents hair loss. Rogaine is safe for application for both men and women. You can easily buy Rogaine at any local drugstore.
Avoid Doing These- Hair Colour
Most of the hair colors contain ammonia, which is an industrial bleaching agent. It can play havoc on your hair by making it dry and damaged. Excessive use of hair colors can lead to hair fall by damaging the hair follicles. Instead of chemicals try natural options like henna. It colors as well as conditions your hair making it soft, smooth and healthy hair. You can also use coffee or cinnamon powder.- Hair Treatment
Every other day we fancy different hair styles, sometimes straight, perm or wavy. But do you know that these hair treatments use a lot of harsh chemicals which lead to severe hair fall? Regular hair straightening also leads to split ends, and once it starts splitting, you have to continuously chop them to let your hair grow. Try to avoid them as much as possible and start loving your natural tresses.- Do Not Brush Your Wet Hair
This is the one of the biggest mistakes people generally make – combing or brushing their hair while it’s still wet. Never do this. Wait for your hair to dry naturally, gently detangle and then comb softly.- Avoid Hot Water
Do not use hot water while rinsing your hair. It makes your hair very dry and brittle. Always use cool water as it allows the cuticle to smooth out and lie flat, thus giving you soft and manageable hair.- Do not Use Tight Hairstyles And Rubber Bands
When you tie your hair into a tight ponytail or braid, the hair gets pulled from the roots and gets stressed. This makes them loose from the roots and thus, more prone to breakage. It makes the hair weak and causes permanent damage. Rubber bands also pull the hair out from the roots causing extensive damage to the mane. The hair becomes weak and hurts the scalp.
However, in most cases, it has been observed that by the regulation of diet, exercising, healthy hair practices and regulating the stress levels, people have successfully been able to control even the most severe hair fall problem.
