You must have heard that famous old saying “The hair is your crowning glory.” But that saying will only cause damage to those who’ve tried almost everything just to accelerate hair growth and yet, they failed to achieve long hair in short time.
A long healthy hair is really a pleasant view to the eyes. Every month, your hair grows half an inch. There’s no magic involved in faster hair growth. Also, science still got a lot of job to do to come up with instant hair growing methods. So if you’ve been dying to have a healthy, silky, natural long hair, hair extensions and wigs are not good options. Hence, you can try these strategies to accelerate hair growth. Read on and discover how they work.
One of the most common ways to achieve fast hair growth is massaging your scalp every week or even once a day. Massaging your scalp with your fingers helps in accelerating hair growth because it stimulates the hair follicles and revives nutrients thereby keeping your hair healthy. You can massage scalp using essential oils like almond oil, emu oil, jojoba oil and rosemary oil.
A healthy body will definitely result to a healthy hair. Maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet. Refrain from eating sugary or fatty foods but eat lots of protein-rich foods such as eggs, fish, beans, liver and meat. Foods that are high in protein are said to promote faster hair growth. Likewise, increase your intake of foods that are rich in beta-carotene, zinc and iron like whole grains, green leafy vegetables and shellfish because they encourage a healthy and glowing hair growth. Take vitamins or food supplements that contain flaxseed oil, sulfur and B vitamins. You may also want to avoid foods that contain caffeine and carbonated drinks. Quit smoking and drinking alcohol. Regular exercise for at least 30 minutes per day will also help accelerate hair growth.
A clean and hydrated hair will also speed up hair growth. Be cautious in using hair care products and hair dyes. They usually contain chemicals that may damage your hair or can even lead to hair loss. Don’t abuse your hair by brushing your hair more often than required. Brush it gently with wide-tooth comb. You can also go to your favorite salon every six weeks to get some hair trim to keep split ends at bay making your hair healthy as it grows. Using hot water when taking a bath or using hot blow dryers will also damage your hair.
Lastly, take enough time to rest. Get at least 6-8 hours of sleep every night to enhance healthy hair growth. It is also recommended that you get at least 10-minute naps in day time. As much as possible, don’t allow to ruin your day. Stress is not a good cue for your body and so for your hair. Meditation and learning to fight stress is always a good call. See? Accelerating hair growth is simple and easy.
