Whether you’ve suffered a bad cut or are just ready to have more flowing locks, it’s common to want long healthy hair as fast as possible! While there are no guaranteed paths to hair perfection, there are some tried and true home remedies that help move the job along. Keep in mind that if your hair is breaking, thinning or growing slower than average, other factors may be contributing to the process such as the weather, your age, what foods you eat, living habits and general overall health.
That being said, there are still many natural ways to hurry along hair growth that are easy and great for your health!
We’ve all heard this one before but there’s truth in it! Trim your hair 1/4 inch every 6-8 weeks. It will clean the damaged ends off, allowing the shaft to continue growing out rather than in many damaged directions.
Up the Omegas:
Eat a diet high in Omega 3, 6 and 9 nutrients for not only healthy hair but also for better brain function, healthy bones and ligaments. This means your joints, your mind, teeth and nails benefit too! Find omegas in flax seed, salmon and in supplement form at any natural grocer.
Just heat up a hot oil treatment, rub it into your scalp, wait a little while, and you'll see the difference -- your hair will feel thicker, softer, and longer! While you can always use a store-bought treatment, homemade hot oil treatments work just as well. Jojoba oil, coconut oil, olive oils, and most other oils you like will do wonders; just heat it up and apply thoroughly.
A lot of people believe that this tip concerning how to make your hair grow faster doesn't work well, but egg whites have been known for their healing properties and their ability to replenish hair and restore its softness and shine! Just crack open a few eggs, strain out the yolks, and make an egg white mask for your hair. Your hair will look ten times healthier instantly and will feel a lot stronger as well -- which, ultimately, will allow your hair to grow faster!
Water helps the body to process and flush out toxins faster, which makes it a quick and easy natural method that will make your hair grow a lot faster. If you drink about 8 cups of water a day, not only will your body feel better, but your hair will get stronger. The stronger the hair, the faster that it grows. Drinking water also keeps your hair hydrated from the inside out. Hydrated hair is happy hair because, when dry, your hair is much more likely to break.
Brushing the hair once or twice in the morning and once or twice at night will stimulate the circulation in your scalp, feeding the hair follicles and ensuring undisturbed hair growth. However, when your hair is wet, never brush it. That causes severe breakage, which ultimately stunts hair growth. Use a comb instead -- wide-toothed combs are fine, especially if you experience tangles. And lastly, start at the bottom and work your way up to detangle at the source, rather than breaking them to break through the mess.
Try to stay away from blow dryers and heated tools, as they burn the hair. If you MUST use them, be sure to use a heat protecting spray or creme first, before styling. Keep in mind that the sun damages hair as well. In warm weather, or intense sunlight (even in the snow) keep a hat on to protect your hair from over drying and burning. Like pulling it back? Spend the next 2 months with your hair tied back to give it a damage break!
Eucalyptus; the Miracle Plant:
Get into a sauna, steam room or even your shower, one to two times a week and spray eucalyptus oil shower spray near your head, about arms length away; never onto the head directly. The circulation promoting plant oils will penetrate through your open pores, waking up the follicles. Add to this a gentle scalp massage and you'll have one happy head!
