How to make your hair grow faster | facts & fiction | advice

So many girls out there are wanting their hair to grow faster, maybe they have damaged/hair loss hair due to extensions or had it cut way too short. We have all been there when we have wanted our hair to grow that just a little bit faster. Common knowledge in the hair in beauty world is :

The American Academy of Dermatology says that hair grows about 1/2 inch per month on average. That’s a grand total of about 6 inches per year for the hair on your head.

6 inches per year! that’s not enough for people who are unhappy about hair thinning, hair loss or just really short hair, As a hairdresser I know about a lot of hair growth products and I also did some research on hair growth case studies, in some studies it was found that products/oils really did stimulate hair growth and so it is my personal belief that the official common knowledge about hair growth being only 1/2 inch a year is wrong!

If we follow the correct hair care advice from professionals and also keep ourselves healthy I do believe faster hair growth is POSIIBLE! although its not going to be overnight as some articles or youtube videos claim. I saw on youtube someone claiming growth in 5 days…. LMAO! If that was true we would all have long hair then wouldn’t be ?

If your hair is falling out then please click here, I have created a separate article on this as there are other elements at play for hair that falls out xx

Diet and nutrition is major for hair growth, Iron is fantastic for promoting hair growth and can be found in spinach. Iron is best absorbed with vitamin C and so a nice big glass of orange juice along side iron rich foods seems like a good idea. Iron, Omega-3 and Vitamin A will help to supercharge your follicles to promote healthy hair growth. See video below for more information.

Exercise can boost hair growth. This is because it increases blood circulation and the amount of oxygen and nutrients going to your scalp. This will ensure your follicles are getting everything they need to grow strong and healthy hair. Cardio and yoga are particularly good for this so you might want to add them into your routine if you want to achieve faster hair growth ! See video below for a good beginners yoga routine!

Another way of promoting hair growth is to create hair masks using oils and ingredients at home! Never put an essential oil directly on your scalp or skin!! You need to dilute them in whats called a carrier oil then apply. You can use coconut oil, olive oil as carrier oil etc. Lavender and rosemary oils are world renowned for promoting hair growth. See video below about tips on creating your own hair growth potion at home to save you the pennies.
