Drop the nonsense. Forget cutting your hair at full moon or taking “miracle” medication claiming to make your hair grow 10cm a month. It is not going to happen! There are no magic solutions to make your hair grow quicker, but there are a few things you can do to give it a bit of a boost…
“On average, your hair grows a centimetre, maybe a centimetre and a half, a month. Rarely more. To get long hair, your best bet is patience. But there are a few ways to give your hair a helping hand while you wait.”
Avoid products and treatments which claim they can make your hair grow faster. They may well stop your hair from falling out so much and help it grow more evenly, but in no way, shape or form do they speed up the growth process. The best way to ensure regular growth? Look after your hair and take on a few healthy habits !
To help your hair grow, it is important you maintain and look after it every day with the right products. “If you have dry hair and want it to grow, concentrate particularly on the mid-lengths and ends, using hydrating treatments.”
Another tip is to massage your hair when washing. “This promotes hair growth as it gives your scalp the hydration it needs and provides it with oxygen. Your scalp is allowed to breathe and relax, meaning that your hair is less likely to fall out and will grow more regularly.”
A healthy, balanced diet and dietary supplements are also important for healthy hair and therefore, growth. “Giving your body all the nutritional elements it needs will leave you with both healthy skin and healthy hair! So make sure you eat lots of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron.”
