Today, even after using very expensive shampoos and conditioning for hair, people hardly can retain good and thick hair for a longer duration of time. Since most of us have dull hair for this reason, we really wish that there was a magic potion that makes our hair grow faster.
While one must acknowledge that there is no quick-fix method to sprout longer hair overnight, there are certainly methods to increase the rate of growth over a certain period. Here are a few things you have to note in order to grow your hair faster.
Eat a healthy diet which includes plenty of fruits, veggies, nuts, whole grains, eggs and poultry. The very structure of hair is composed of protein. Make sure you are getting enough protein from vegetarian or non vegetarian sources to help you grow hair faster.
Avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat. Essential fatty acids may be obtained from fish among animal sources and from nuts and flaxseeds among plant sources.
Do a scalp massage regularly with natural growth-boosting oils such as coconut, jojoba and olive oil to stimulate the follicles. Apply olive oil to your scalp every week at night and massage well. Take a towel soaked in hot water and squeeze out excess water.
Wrap it around your head to allow the heat to open pores on the scalp and let the oil absorb. Leave it overnight and wash next morning.
Make a mixture of aloe vera gel and honey and apply on scalp. Keep for 20 minutes before washing off.
Finely chop an onion and add it to shampoo. Leave it aside for fifteen days and then use shampoo as usual. This makes hair grow faster.
Prepare a shampoo with little pieces of aloe vera and onion to wash hair 2 or 3 times a week. Follow with any avocado or rosemary based conditioner. Soak aloe vera pieces in water overnight. Strain and use next day as a hair rinse.
Be gentle on hairs
Avoid combing hair when wet. Don’t indulge in unnecessary brushing, blow-drying or heat-styling. Overexposure to chemicals in dyes or the rebonding tends to stunt hair growth. Stick to nature-sourced colors such as henna and indigo. Use natural organic shampoos as far as possible. Avoid the use of hot water for washing the hair. Always wash in lukewarm or preferably, cold water.
Live happy stress-free life and get ample rest and sleep to allow hair to reach its maximum growth potential. Too much stress can cause changes in your hormone levels and in the cortisol in your body which can, in turn, lead to hair loss. This is reversible though, so make sure you give yourself enough time to relax and get enough sleep.
Boil 2 tablespoon of dry rosemary in a cup of olive oil. Let it stand for 3 days before straining. Use for head massage weekly. Provide your hair necessary nutrients by mixing an egg, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 2 teaspoon of honey. Massage on scalp and wash in half an hour. Boil dry rosemary in water and use as a daily rinse.
