How to Help Your Hair Grow Longer Faster

Girl with Long Hair

Hair grows at a naturally slow pace, but there are a few things that you can try, to help speed up the process while still maintaining the good health of your hair.

Here are a few ways to help your hair grow longer faster!

Focus on nutrition

What you eat affects more than just your physical and mental health—it also contributes to your hair’s health and growth rate.

Take a look at your diet; you may be lacking in protein. Consider bumping up your protein levels through fish, beans, and nuts. Protein, along with vitamins A, C, and E and minerals such as iron, all contribute to your hair’s health.

Avoid excessive heating and styling

Daily over-styling of your hair with heating tools like curling irons and flat irons eventually leads to damage. Avoid using too much heat on your hair at once, such as blow-drying and heat styling on the same day.

When using a heated tool, turn down the temperature and use heat protectant products to avoid hair breakage.

Remember to allow your hair some days of rest without styling to let it repair itself.

It’s also not a bad idea to avoid shampooing every day, which can strip it of its natural oils.

The less damaged your hair, the easier it grows.

Strengthen and stimulate your scalp

Brush your hair to stimulate blood flow to your scalp and to distribute your hair’s natural oils throughout your hair. By moving your hair’s nutrients to the strands, it makes your hair healthier and stronger.

When you brush, start at the bottom of the hair and work your way up to avoid breakage; this is especially important on wet hair. You can also massage your scalp each day for at least five minutes for ultimate scalp stimulation.
