A bad haircut? A lob gone wrong? When the hairdresser gets carried away and chops off too much of your hair, all you wish for is your hair to grow faster. We’ve all been there at some point in our lives. Also, there are the times when we’re losing more hair than normally (seeing a fistful of hair in your shower is nothing less than scary and unpleasant) and we want to get fuller hair as soon as possible. And sometimes, no matter whether you are a male or a female, sometimes you just want to have longer hair. Waiting for your hair to be the right length can be annoying and tedious. It might seem as if it’s not growing at all. However, on average, our hair grows a quarter of an inch per month.
If you’re not one of those who are genetically blessed with fast-growing hair, there are still some things that seem to help grow hair faster. Here are five tips that can help.
Maintain a healthy diet
Your hair can’t grow when it’s not provided with hair building blocks, such as proteins. Here you can find the list of foods which could help your hair grow thicker and healthier.
Take hair supplements
Food is not the only source of hair thickening vitamins and minerals. Hair supplements might also promote quicker hair growth. CatalaseNow is one of the healthy hair products which contain a herbal and mineral formula that could help you grow hair faster. Read more about it here.
Massage you scalp
The key to promoting growth, apart from providing your hair with necessary nutrients, is improving the blood circulation. Give your head a nice massage. Not only does it feel heavenly, but it will also stimulate the hair follicles.
Finish with a cool rinse
Another thing you can do to stimulate your blood flow is to finish with a cool rinse when washing your hair. It’s definitely not as pleasant as a head massage, but it makes your hair shinier! Hot water opens your pores and hair follicles, which can dry out your skin and hair. On the other hand, cool water will close them (so that the hair surface resembles a mirror) and promote blood flow to your scalp. Just five seconds of cold water and you’re good.
Use hair growth shampoos
There are many hair shampoos on the market which aim to help you grow hair faster. They usually contain plants which promote blood flow. However, if you wish, you can make your own DIY hair growth shampoo. Just add nettle oil drops and Panthenol to the one you usually use.
