Tips to Get Your Hair to Grow Faster

For some people, having a head of full, lush hair happens as easily as breathing. However, for the rest of us, it takes a ton of effort, from buying expensive hair products to giving our hair special care and attention. If you are a member of the latter camp, and you desire full, lush hair, you have come to the right place. In this article, we will provide you with tips on how to grow your hair faster that don’t require you to break the bank. Let’s start!

Trim Split Ends

If you want your hair’s length to increase, you should trim its split ends. The reason is simple: split ends will eventually result in hair breakage. And while you will be sacrificing some of your hair when you trim split ends, you will be averting a bigger disaster.

Use Conditioner

If you desire long hair, you have to become best friends with conditioners. Your hair is one of the driest parts of your body. Unfortunately, that is not ideal if you want it to grow long. So, you have to ensure it is moisturized as much as possible. Using a conditioner helps you do that. More than that, conditioners replenish the lipids and proteins that reside in the hair shaft. They also seal the outer cuticle and prevent hair from thinning and getting weak.

One thing you should know: Different hair types benefit from different types of conditioners. Where some people’s hair will be well moisturized with a simple conditioner, other people’s hair will require oil treatments and weekly hydrating hair masks. So, determine which category your hair belongs and act accordingly. Finally, always rinse your hair with cold water. This will help you avoid heat damage, which can also cause breakage.

Be Gentle

If you brush your hair impatiently, it is more likely than not you will break its strands. Yes, it can be frustrating to brush gently through your hair, especially if it is tangled and matted; however, you have to do it regardless. It is one of the prices to pay for the long, healthy hair you desire.
By the way, choose your hairbrush with care. You will do better with a detangling brush, a wide-toothed comb, and a paddle brush that has rounded bristles than with a brush that has metal bristles.

Finally, detangle your hair before you wash it to minimize breakage.

Avoid Stress

You might find it hard to believe but stress can lead to hair loss and poor hair growth. In fact, severe stress can trigger certain autoimmune diseases where you can actually lose your hair. So, if you desire long, strong, healthy hair, you should do all you can to avoid being stressed.

Use Silk/Satin Pillowcase

You might be wondering, “Can using a silk pillowcase really help my hair grow?” The answer is yes. How? By reducing the friction that causes your hair to tangle and break. Naturally, less breakage means longer hair.

By the way, a satin pillowcase can also suffice in this case. And so can a silk/satin head cover, in place of a pillowcase.
By the way, this tip also applies to your bath towel. Instead of the everyday towel that can catch your hair and result in breakage, opt for a t-shirt or a microfiber hair towel instead. They will reduce friction and lessen the chances of your hair breaking.

Massage Your Scalp

Another thing that seems to work for faster hair growth is scalp massage. Massaging your scalp will increase blood circulation around your scalp. As a result, the nutrients necessary for hair growth will get to their destination, and so will oxygen. What’s more? Scalp massages relieve stress and stimulate hair follicles. As a result, they improve your chances of having longer, healthier hair. And faster, too.

You can give yourself a scalp massage with your fingers. Alternatively, you can get a scalp massage tool to increase your efficiency and effectiveness.
To get the most out of your scalp massages, we recommend you use nutrient-rich oil, like coconut oil, rosemary oil, castor oil, or jojoba oil.

Avoid Bleaching

When you bleach your hair or subject it to similar chemical treatments, you weaken it. And as it happens, weak hair breaks a lot more than healthy hair. So, if you desire long, healthy hair, stay away from bleach. If you must dye your hair, stick with a color that’s not far from your natural color.

Conclusion

Growing your hair faster is possible, with the right information and a pinch of dedication. With the tips above, all you require to achieve your desire is the right amount of dedication.
