Some of us dream of having long, luscious hair, though we can’t seem to make our hair grow any faster. The harsh truth is – there is no secret miraculous elixir that can give you a magical Rapunzel-like hair growth spurt. But there are a few techniques you can add to your hair care routine that may stimulate better hair growth and increase hair thickness and strength. Keep reading to check these helpful tips.

Wash Oily Hair More Frequently

How often you wash your hair should be based on how much oil your scalp produces.

If your scalp is oily, you may need to wash it as often as once a day.
If you have chemically treated hair, your hair may be drier, so you may want to wash it less frequently.
As you get older, your scalp makes less oil, so you may not need to shampoo as often. But if you see flakes in your hair, you may not be shampooing enough. This can lead to dandruff and other scalp diseases.

Use Chemical Free Shampoos

You really can’t control all the environmental factors that damage your hair, but what you can control is the kind of shampoos you use. Lesser the number of chemicals in your shampoo, healthier your hair. Go for gentle shampoos that suit your hair type.
Sulfates and parabens in shampoos are used for lathering and preserving respectively, but they can cause skin irritation over time and increase the risk of hormonal disruptions.

Use Conditioner after every Shampoo

Unless you use a “2-in-1” shampoo, which cleans and conditions hair. Using a conditioner can significantly improve the look of damaged or weathered hair by increasing shine, decreasing static electricity, improving strength and offering some protection from harmful UV rays.

Give Yourself a Scalp Massage

A scalp massage is the simplest way to stimulate hair growth. Not only does a scalp massage feel great, but it also boosts blood circulation and strengthens hair.

A scalp massage also mobilizes the scalp oils that strengthen the roots and keep your hair moist.

Trim Your Hair Regularly

Damaged hair or hair with split ends inhibits the growth of new hair. Regular hair trimming is essential. If left untreated, split ends can make your hair dull, dry, and tangled. Trimming also treats hair breakage.
However, remember not to overdo the trimming. The average time between each trim should be 3 to 4 months. Also, cut your hair half an inch to an inch while trimming your hair.

Have A Healthy, Balanced Diet

A healthy diet will ensure your hair gets all the nutrition it needs to grow long and strong. A healthy, balanced diet contains all the nutrients required for promoting hair growth.

Foods rich in vitamins and minerals also promote hair growth

Consume foods rich in protein and amino acids, which are essential for hair growth.

Making a few changes to your hair care routine and diet can help your hair grow faster. Consume foods rich in minerals, vitamins, protein, and amino acids for effective hair growth. Shampooing every day strips the scalp of its natural oils, rendering the hair dry and weak. So, do not overdo it, and use chemical-free shampoos. Moreover, using heat styling tools, brushing too often, and not hydrating the hair enough may damage your strands, thus impacting their growth. It is important for you to accept that no medication or oil can ensure hair growth overnight. Follow these tips and techniques, and be patient until you see results.
