Every woman would like to have long beautiful hair but only a few of us are lucky to have rapid hair growth. Many of us must put a lot of effort and hair care so that our hair grows faster and longer. Here are some tips on how to get long beautiful hair rapidly.
1.Eating A Well Balanced Diet
Your scalp requires many vital nutrients to create new hair from protein and essential minerals. So having a well balanced diet that includes Iron (a very important mineral in preventing anemia which could lead to hair loss), Foods that contain Vitamin A, Vitamin B , Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Zinc ,Omega-3, Folic Acid, Biotin and many others that can help maintain healthy hair. Also its important to eat foods that are high in protein such as; spinach, broccoli, almonds, peanuts, walnuts, eggs, cheese, milk, meats, salmon, avocado and cauliflowers.
2.Avoid Washing Your Hair More Than Twice A Week
Washing your hair daily can compromise the scalp’s natural essential oils and sebum that stimulate hair growth. If you reduce the amount of times you wash your hair each week (maximum 2 times per week), it will allow your scalp to produce essential oils that nourish your hair, keeping them from drying out and breaking. You will also notice that by washing your hair less, your hair will stay cleaner and therefore less washing is needed.
3.Avoid Heat Styling Tools And Chemical Products
Excessive heat-styling can lead to damaging your hair, breakage and even cause extreme frizz. If you do style your hair using heat, try to reduce the heat as much as possible and use heat protectant spray. Also avoid over combing and brushing your hair and use products that do not contain harsh chemicals. It’s recommended to use shampoos and hair products that do not contain sulfate, paraben and dyes because they can damage your hair.
4.Take Hair Supplements
5.Message Your Scalp
Another effective way to grow your hair is to message your scalp by putting your head upside down in between your legs.
Step 1. Measure your hair from roots till the ends so you can compare it to the end results.
Step 2. Sit on a chair, and put your head upside down and hang it in between your legs. Tilting your head upside down increases blood flow to your scalp which increases your hair follicles and stimulates growth.
Step 3. Message your scalp using your fingertips for maximum 10 minutes. Be sure to put a timer on. You can use Coconut Oil, Olive Oil or Argan Oil while messaging. This will help condition your hair at the same time.
Step 5. Repeat this process for a week and then stop for a month before repeating it.
6.Apply Oil Or Mask Treatment Weekly
Applying an oil or mask weekly can help nourish your hair and it can also make it stronger and shiny. You can use Coconut Oil, Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Argan Oil and Eggs. All of these can help stimulate hair growth by getting deep into the hair follicles, moisturizes, adds shine and fights against bacteria that can cause dandruff. They also prevent hair from breakage and split ends.
7.Exfoliate Your Scalp
Exfoliating your scalp is another great way to increase hair grown because it helps thoroughly clean and remove excess dirt build up. Do it once a week. You can use detoxifying shampoos such as Living Proof Restoring Shampoo, Mielle Organics Mongongo Oil Shampoo , Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo, and Moroccanoil Clarifying Shampoo-Scalp Cleaner.
8.Use Silk Pillows Instead Of Cotton
Pillowcases made from cotton or linen even if they feel soft and are rough on your hair and can cause friction therefore lead to breakage. It is advisable to switch to a silk pillowcase. It will prevent friction while you sleep.
9.Avoid Tight Hairstyles
Another cause of hair breakage is tight hair bands. If you constantly wear tight hair bands, eventually your hair can tear off and prevent it from growing. It’s best to wear elastic bands that are loose and that are smooth around it so it prevents it from pulling. Best hair bands include; Telephone Cord Hair Ring, the Goody Collection Sparkly Metallic Elastic, and the ElasticU Reusable Clear Hair Elastics.
There is no magic way to suddenly boost your hair growth, and you must understand that the hair growth cycle can take up to a few months. However a combination of balanced diet, supplements and good hair care (which includes good quality products and possibly no harsh chemicals) will help you achieve your goals.
