So how do you make hair grow faster? There are different ways to making that happen. Depending on your hair structure and the problems you’re facing now with your hair, you need to find the right way to make your hair grow longer and thicker. If you’re in a hurry to grow your hair, you’ll be disappointed. If you’re looking for the “instant hair growing” method that’ll get your ready for that special occasion coming up, there isn’t any.
So you know patience is at the upmost importance. Your hair may grow half an inch a month on average. It’s what you do that’ll either slow down or promote faster hair growth. However, some people may naturally grow hair faster than others, but it doesn’t mean they have the healthiest hair either.
Daily Care of Your Hair
Again your hair can grow an average of half an inch a month. That will take your hair a long time to grow past shoulder length, maybe approximately two years or more. That is a very long time, and in which case you’ll have to look out for what you’re doing to your hair on a daily basis.
From brushing, combing, washing and blow drying your hair, you need to know of the right ways of caring for your hair, as excessive blow drying, for example, can lead to damaged hair.
Nutrition and Water Are Important
The toxins in your body will have nowhere to go but into your hair, skin and scalp, which can cause dryness, damage, and more to your hair, scalp, and skin. That won’t be the case, however, if you drink the recommended daily amount of 64 ounces of water a day, or more if your body needs it depending on how active you are.
Hydrating yourself daily is important, for it’ll lead to your hair and scalp being hydrated, and will allow nutrients to more quickly flow through your blood stream into your scalp. The moisture from the scalp can then do its work to flow into your hair, which will promote healthy, shiny, and thick hair.
Eating properly is how vitamins and nutrients can help promote hair growth. Vitamin A, B, C, E, and K are good for promoting hair growth. Complete protein from healthy meat like turkey or from nuts help to strengthen the hair, and restore any lost proteins in the hair. Vegetables and fruits, with their important antioxidants, can remove unwanted toxins and provide the nutrients to promote faster hair growth.
Are You Getting Your Beauty Rest?
We all have busy schedules, but looking your best is still important even in the professional world. Make sure you’re getting your rest daily. Six to eight hours a night will ensure you are allowing your hair to stimulate and grow throughout the night, which is the time where it grows fastest. Without rest, your hair will weaken and breakage will occur.
For optimum results, applying a hair oil that has coconut oil or olive oil into your hair and applying a shower cap on before going to sleep can make sure your hair is promoting as much growth as it can every night.
The Right Hair Treatment
Conditioning your hair is important. Having a conditioner with ingredients like emu oil, avocado, or shea butter can help moisturize your hair and promote hair grow. Just make sure you deep condition your hair at least once a week for greater results.
On top of that, you need to ensure you are applying the right kind of ingredients into your hair even after conditioning. That’s where pure shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, or emu oil come into play. These ingredients all help to promote hair growth through their rich vitamins and nutrients, and also help to promote thickness of your hair and volume, which allow you to more easily style your hair however you want.
It is good when you can mix these ingredients together to create your own hair oil or styling gel. If you use branded hair oil, make sure you always read the ingredients to make sure there aren’t any chemicals and that there isn’t any strong fragrances.
Hair Growth is Just a Trim Away
You may feel that your hard work of growing your hair is going to waste when you have to trim your hair a half an inch every month or bi-monthly. However, don’t buy into that claim. You’re doing the right thing when you trim the ends of your hair in that cycle.
If you don’t, the ends of your hair will break, thus slowing down the hair growing process. Trimming your hair every month or so helps promote hair growth, while also promoting smooth, shiny hair.
