5 Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Faster
For a lucky few, enviably long hair just happens. For the rest of us, it requires patience, effort and some very deliberate changes in our haircare routine. If you’ve found yourself getting discouraged, because your hair just isn’t growing as long or as quickly as you’d like, don’t reach for the extensions yet. Check out these pro tips to guide you (and your hair) in the right direction.
Get frequent trims — yes, really.
It may seem counterintuitive, but if you want long hair that’s actually healthy, you need to get regular trims. While haircuts don’t make your hair grow any faster, they get rid of split ends that break your hair.
Distribute your hair’s natural oil.
Going to bed with unbrushed hair may seem tempting when you’re tired, but giving your hair a few quick strokes can be great for its health.
Eating the right foods
Having long, strong hair doesn’t just depend on which products you put on your hair; it also depends on what you put into your body. Try increasing your protein intake with foods like fish, beans, nuts, and whole grains. If you’re not a meat-lover, you should still aim to maintain a diet high in protein.
Be careful when you brush wet hair.
Hair is especially susceptible to breakage when it’s wet, but if you absolutely must get some knots out post-shower, make sure to use a brush that will go easy on your strands. Start gently brushing from the ends and gradually work your way up. And don’t just brush the top layer — brush the hair underneath as well.
Sleep on a silk pillowcase.
Getting better hair in your sleep is possible — all you need is to switch up your pillowcase. “Silk is easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage. The less breakage your hair experiences, the longer your hair will be.
