The average person’s hair grows at a rate of 6 inches per year, according to HairBoutique.com. That means that if you got a bad haircut, it is going to take a while to grow your hair back. You can use a few methods to help your hair grow a little faster. Don’t expect miracles, however, because no legitimate product is available that can make your hair grow inches overnight.
You will need the following items:
Trim off your dead ends. You can go to a salon for this, or have a friend help you out. Dead hair is not healthy hair. This can actually hinder your hair from growing any faster. You may need to trim dead ends as often as once every three months.
Begin taking a multivitamin once per day. A good idea is to get a multivitamin that caters to your gender. These are available at health food stores, pharmacies and even grocery stores. Look for one that contains the B vitamins and beta-carotene. These vitamins help to maximize your body’s growth cycles, which will keep your hair growing at its fastest speed.
Make sure you are getting your daily recommended dose of protein. Your hair is a protein, and will not grow in fast or healthy unless you consume protein. You can get protein through eggs, fish and beans. If you aren’t eating enough protein, add a protein shake to your diet.
Stop blow-drying your hair. In fact, you need to stop using any type of heat on your hair. This damages your hair and will stop it from growing at its fastest speed. This means you need to give up the curling irons and hair straighteners.
Drip neem oil on your scalp and massage it in. Wait half an hour, and rinse it out. Neem oil has the ability to help your hair grow. Individuals who are losing their hair use this all-natural product to stimulate hair growth. Hair comes in thicker and healthier. Use the neem oil treatment once per week to see results.
Wear a cap when swimming. This will protect your hair from the chlorine in the pool so that your hair can stay healthy while you get some relief from the hot sun.
Do not use any perms or dying kits that contain harsh chemicals. These will stunt the growth of your hair and dry the hair you do have out. If you want to color your hair, use non-peroxide coloring or a 100% natural henna product.
