How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster and Healthier

Apr 25, 2022

For the impatient among us, wondering how to grow hair faster seems a fair enough thought. Hair growth, however, isn’t as controllable as it might seem. The truth is that even the healthiest hair grows only about half an inch every month.

But there’s still hope—you can adopt plenty of good hair care practices that will encourage the growth process. From keeping your existing hair healthy to improving your diet, you’ll soon find your hair growing stronger and shinier.

Eat a Hair-Friendly Diet and Check Your Protein Intake

For your hair to grow healthily, it needs to be fed the right nutrients. Because protein and amino acids make up the hair’s structure, you should increase the amount of protein and healthy fats in your diet with foods such as fish, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

A diet rich in protein and amino acids will not only encourage hair growth but also give your hair what it needs to grow strong strands, preventing breakage and flyaways.

Consider Hair-Growth Vitamins

Other nutrients that promote healthy hair are Vitamins A, C, and E, Zinc, Iron, and Omega-3 fatty acids, which you can add to your diet by eating fruits and leafy greens. But if you are unable to do so regularly, consider a multivitamin supplement. A lack of those essential nutrients will lead to hair shedding, which you want to avoid if you are after beautiful, voluminous locks.

Rinse Hair With Cold Water

Keep your scalp clean by washing it regularly with shampoo and warm water to remove product buildup and residue. End your shower routine with a cold rinse; this will stimulate the blood circulation in your scalp, seal your hair follicles, and prevent moisture loss. A cold rinse calms down inflammation and helps a dry, itchy scalp.

Choose the Right Hair Products

Your hair care products should be right for your specific hair type. Carefully consider your hair’s thickness, texture, and the time it takes for your scalp to get oily.

If you have an oily scalp or use a lot of hair styling products, you will require a clarifying shampoo. Thicker hair requires a creamier conditioner, while thin hair requires a light conditioner. Keep your hair’s needs in mind when you are choosing which products to have in your routine.

Cut Back on Heat Tools and Use a Heat-Protectant Product

Over time, the excessive use of curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers changes the shape of your hair’s keratin strands. This heat damage leads to brittle, dry hair, making it prone to breakage.

Because of this, you should cut down on the frequency at which you heat-style your hair; one to two times a week is an ideal rate.

Instead, have fun trying out heatless styling methods or wait for your hair to air dry about 80 percent before you use a blow dryer. When you use heat styling tools, keep the temperature at a low setting and make sure to apply a heat protectant beforehand.

Change Up Your Hairstyle to Promote Growth

Having to detangle your hair often will cause breakage and hair loss. If your hair type has you constantly wrestling with a brush, opt for protective hairstyles, especially when you will be doing activities. Cornrows, loose buns, braids, and ponytails are timeless and attractive options.
