Everyone women would just love to have long hairs so they would look more beautiful, don’t you? Even most of the men also love to grow their hair faster even if they don’t desire to keep it long enough. But sometimes it seems that your hair growth has stopped or decreased. In that case you should start a hair care routine. And after that you can work with these natural hair growth tips that are applicable for both men and women.
1.Eating the right food
To have strong and long hair you should not only rely on the items you put on your hair, it also relies on what you eat. Dr. Francesco Fusco, dermatologist and CLEAR Scalp and Hair master said, “To promote hair growth, you need to ‘feed’ the hair from the inside.” Start taking more proteins through fishes, beans and nuts. And if you are a vegetarian, try increasing you diet on proteins. You will have less hair loss and in result, long hairs.
2.Keeping a healthy scalp
Your hair is like a tree: if you don’t take care of its root and soil, they won’t grow long or healthy. So to get an amazing hair growth you have to keep your scalp healthy. In order to maintain a healthy scalp you should treat it with healthy ingredients. You can get a good idea of how healthy your hair is by doing a “root lift test” which identifies your hair’s strength. If your hair are thick from root to the end, then its great, otherwise you should rethink your hair care strategy.
In order to grow your hair fast and keep them healthy, frequent trimming is essential. Trimming your hair frequently gets rid of the split ends and stops hair loss and hair damage. As split ends cause breakage, it causes hair loss, it loses shine, it volume and smoothness. So visit a barber after every 6 or 7 weeks for a haircut.
4.Use natural oil
Before going to bed, always remember to brush your hair a little to keep it in place. Use a bristle brush to divide your scalp’s oil to the whole head to keep it naturally moisturized. Instead of using hair products use natural oil more often. Olive oil is highly recommended. Here’s a tip; an hour before you take a shampoo, apply natural oil to your hair. As the oil is absorbed in this one hour, your scalp gets healthy, thus growing stronger hair.
5.Stay away from heat gadgets
The main problem causing hair damage is usage of heat gadgets like, straighteners, rollers, etc. Avoid over styling your hair and try to use it less often. Even if you use it, decrease the temperature and use a heat protector. If you don’t take these necessary precautions, you’ll end up damaging your hair badly, hair loss and what not.
6.Say “no” to shampoo
What I mean by say “no” to shampoo is that you don’t really have to stop using it forever; you just need to skip the daily usage. Instead make a routine to use it twice in a week. Usage of shampoo allows your natural oil to infiltrate your hair, hence, allowing it hydrate and repair itself. But using it every other day will lead to extra oily hair, dandruff and itching.
7. Take your vitamins
Vitamins play a vital role in hair growth and keeping hair healthy. In case your diet doesn’t provide enough nutrition, take multivitamins for hairs. These multivitamins contain vitamin C and B, and biotin that help in hair growth. But keep vitamins as a substitute. Don’t make it a habit.
8. Take a cool shower
Take a hot shower is not just bad for your skin but also for your hair. Hot water roughens your hair and causes breakage and split ends. While cleaning your hair keep the water temperature down and rinse with cold water to keep your hair straight and strong so that you can make your desired hairstyle.
Most of the diet companies ask to cleanse for perfect healthy hair. But actually cleansing deprives your body of nutrients. Even if you keep on doing it for a week you will notice slow hair growth and lackluster locks. So keep away from cleansing products.
10.Use silk pillowcase to sleep on
You can also get amazing hair while sleeping. All you need to do is change your pillow cover and use silk pillowcase as it provides smoother surface for you head so that your hair doesn’t gets rough. It also help in preventing breakage and tangle. Less hair breakage leads to less hair fall.
11.Keep a daily check with hair care products
After using hair care products you can normally see your hair shinning and you think that your product is working. But it is recommended that you take a closer look and feel your hair to actually know what is happening. You will feel that your hair is dry, stripped, heavy or waxy or you will feel smooth, silky and healthy hair. You should take care of your hair just as you take care of your skin.
Well I hope that you find these home remedies helpful and apply them for your hair. But remember to consult your specialist to get an idea of what kind of care exactly your hair needs. So that you don’t end up making it worse.
