If you want your hair to grow faster, you need to stimulate its growth and at the same time keep the hair you already have healthy.
Keeping your current hair wealthy is mainly about keeping your standard hair care routine, with maybe a bit more care. But if you want to stimulate hair growth, you have to go internal.
Here’re science-proved tips to encourage hair growth.
Clean and Stimulate the Scalp
A chronically inflamed scalp and scalp conditions like dermatitis can lead to hair loss or thinning.
There’s a study that proved that inflammation caused by pollution and oxidative stress is one of the main causes of hair loss.
So make sure you regularly wash your scalp with gentle washes, while massaging the scalp to increase the flow of blood and stimulate hair follicles.
Regular massages in general also promote hair growth by delivering vital nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicle.
Take Hair-growth Supplements
Collagen and biotin promote hair health and growth by providing the body with all the right nutrients.
Both collagen and biotin supplements have rich amounts of many of these amino acids, meaning the supplements provide the body with the building blocks of hair.
Biotin naturally promotes healthy hair growth because it is involved in the making of keratin, the main component of hair. As for collagen, it can further help in hair growth by supporting the scalp in the same way that collagen can help manage skin health overall.
Protect your Hair from Physical Damage
While the occasionally snapped strand is perfectly normal, having breakage-prone hair can make achieving your length goals nearly impossible.
Too-tight hairstyles can cause resistance and pulling, so consider using soft hair ties. And, switching up your style regularly so you’re not putting pressure on the same spot day in day out.
Always brush from the tips up—starting from the root is a recipe for frayed ends.
Do not wash your hair too aggressively – you can cause knots and tangles that are difficult to get out.
Keep it Moisturized
If your texture is naturally drier, it is even more vital to keep hair hydrated, to avoid dry hair turning to brittle hair and breaking finally.”
Conditioners can help seal the cuticle down, trapping in water and your hair’s nutrients.
For some, a simple conditioner will not solve the problem, in that case, weekly hydrating hair masks, and oil treatments (like using the original Wild Growth Hair Oil) may help.
One of the ways that researches have shown to help hair aging is antioxidants. They manage oxidative stress and neutralize free radicals.
For example, Vitamin C, plays a big role in promoting collagen production and that helps strengthen hair.
You can also use antioxidants in the form of hair oils, serums, or sprays, which is particularly helpful with free radical damage that comes with UV rays or pollution.
And also, just look for products that contain vitamins or other general antioxidants like vitamin E.
Get Regular Trims
Shearing off dead ends doesn’t affect the follicles up top, but it helps to keep hair from breakage
When you have split ends, the hair slowly splits up the shaft, which leads to breakage and slower growth. Regular trims are the only way to get rid of those frays and ensure healthy strands.
