Have you just gotten a short haircut and are now finding yourself regretting it? If so, this post is just for you! Macsara is going to reveal ten tips that will promote your hair growth, so keep scrolling down to find out how you can get your long and healthy hair back faster!
1. Brush your scalp
By using a scalp brush with soft silicone bristles, you can stimulate your hair grow faster. How can this be possible? Massaging your scalp with that specialized brush helps increase blood flow to the area. This, in turn, improves the distribution of sebum throughout the scalp and hair, which plays a crucial role in promoting healthy hair growth.
2. Avoid heat
There is no doubt that the best way to help your hair grow is to make sure it doesn’t break. As one of the most common causes of hair breakage is heat, you should take measures to minimize the heat damage caused to your hair.
Keep in mind that you should always use a heat protectant on your hair before using heat tools (and avoid heat styling too often as well). Additionally, let your hair air dry instead of blowing it using a hairdryer. If you need to do so, choose the lowest heat setting possible.
3. Get a trim
Paradoxically, trimming your hair can actually help make your hair grow faster. This is due to the fact that when you get a trim, you will get rid of the ends, which are the weakest part of your strands. If you don’t cut them, they will become broken or split and even travel up your hair shafts, preventing them from growing healthily.
However, don’t trim your hair too much, as your goal is to get longer hair faster! Just about a 1/4-inch trim every 3 months or so is good enough.
4. Deep conditioner
Giving your hair a deep conditioner helps your hair stay moisturized and hydrated, which is essential for healthy hair growth. You just need to use a deep conditioner at least once a week. Wash your hair in the shower like normal and rinse the shampoo with warm water. Then you get out and dry your hair with a soft towel. Next, apply an amount of deep conditioner to your hair and keep it for about 20 minutes and then rinse with cool water.
5. Eat the right diet
Good nutrition plays an essential role in promoting your overall health. Nutrients such as protein, biotin, vitamins, fatty acids, folate, and iron… are scientifically proven to be linked with hair growth or the prevention of hair loss. Below are the foods loaded with such nutrients:
- Salmon, avocados, pumpkin seeds, walnuts: rich in fatty acids
- Sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe: a great source of an antioxidant called beta carotene.
- Eggs, chicken, pork, beef: rich in protein, and iron. Iron helps cells carry oxygen to your hair follicles. A lack of iron can lead to hair loss.
- Spinach, kale, broccoli, or any leafy greens: loaded with beta carotene, iron, vitamin A, and folate.
- Soybeans, Lentils, and kidney beans: high in biotin, zinc, protein, and iron…
- Greek yogurt: a great source of protein, vitamin B5 (which you often see in hair care products), and Vitamin D.
- Blueberries, strawberries, kiwis, and tomatoes: loaded with vitamin C, which is critical for circulation to the scalp.
6. Use essential oils
Essential oils, such as rosemary oil, peppermint oil, lavender oil, tea tree oil, and thyme oil, should be included in your hair care routine if you want your hair to grow faster. These oils will help increase blood flow and circulation, thereby promoting hair growth.
When using essential oils, it’s recommended to dilute them with a carrier oil (e.g. olive oil, coconut oil, or jojoba oils) before applying them to your scalp to minimize the risk of skin irritation.
7. Protect your hair while you sleep
Do you know that the quantity and quality of your sleep affect your hair growth? This is because insufficient and poor sleep will decrease the amount of melatonin produced by your body, which is a hormone responsible for regulating hair growth.
Preventing potential hair damage during your sleep is equally essential. First, keep in mind that you should never sleep while your hair is wet. As this is when your hair is at its weakest, laying on it can make it prone to breakage. Another useful tip is to use a silk or satin pillowcase to prevent causing too much friction on your strands, minimizing the risk of tangling and hair damage.
8. Reduce stress
Stress is well-known as the leading factor contributing to hair loss. Therefore, taking measures to lead a stress-free life is important for healthy hair growth. You should do exercises regularly, try meditation and other relaxation techniques, and surround yourself with nature and positive people.
9. Avoid losing too much weight
Losing some pounds in a short period of time may be your goal, but making your hair grow faster is also what you desire. Unfortunately, you cannot achieve both at the same time, as sudden weight loss can trigger hair loss. This is because when you go on an extreme diet, your body won’t receive enough protein. In this situation, hair growth becomes a low priority since the body uses whatever protein it can obtain. Therefore, it’s crucial to follow a slow-paced diet plan if you want your hair to grow faster.
10. Doing exercise
Exercising is well-known to do wonders for your body, but do you know that it can also promote hair growth? There is a scientific reason behind this interesting fact. Doing exercise helps increase blood circulation and oxygen in blood cells, which is beneficial for hair follicles. This means the scalp will receive more nutrients and oxygen to nourish the roots and consequently, promote hair growth. Therefore, don’t forget to incorporate exercise into your daily routine!
