5 ways to grow your hair longer and faster


The process of growing your hair in order for it to get longer and thicker can make it look like a journey without end. 

Hair is said to be the fastest-growing tissue in the human body; the average growth rate, according to the Trichological Society, is between 0.5 to 1.7 centimeters per month or around 2 to 8 inches yearly.

This growth rate may seem minimal, especially when you are waiting for it to occur.


According to the American Academy of Dermatology Association (AAD), it is very natural for you to shed between 50 and 100 hairs a day. Still, if you feel you are experiencing stunted hair growth, there are a few secrets you can engage in order to enhance hair growth.


I am going to show you five secrets to boosting hair growth; 


1. Get frequent and regular trims


It may sound illogical, but if you desire long and thick hair, you need to trim your hair regularly. Haircuts may not boost rapid hair growth, but it helps in getting rid of split ends that cause hair breakage.

According to a celebrity hairstylist in Los Angeles, ”Getting rid of the breakage gives the impression that you are experiencing rapid hair growth.”

Certainly, a split end that causes hair breakage can result in your hair losing length, not to mention its smoothness, volume, and brightness.


2. Brushing of Hair Regularly


Most times, when you are tired, it may seem tempting to go to bed without brushing your hair but what will help to strengthen the health of your scalp is when you give a few strokes. Meri Kate O’Connor, the celebrity stylist, recommends starting at the scalp and using a boar bristle brush to disperse your scalp’s oil evenly onto your hair for it to remain naturally moisturized.

These plain steps each night aids an increase in circulation and which in turn helps to make your scalp healthy.


3. Shampoo less and hydrate more.  


You can actually impact the health of your hair by shampooing your hair regularly.

Two to three times a week of shampooing your hair ensures that your natural oil infiltrates your hair, letting it hydrate and restore itself, as explained by a celebrity hairstylist, Ken Paves.

To have a thick and full hair, select a shampoo that is labeled “volumizing” or “thickening.”


4. Eat the right diet.


What you put into your body is more important than the kind of product you put on your hair because for your hair to be long and strong, it depends largely on your diet. “For you to enhance hair growth, you need to ‘feed’ the hair from inside,” explains Francesca Fusco, M.D, a dermatologist in NYC.

What are the foods that enhance quick hair growth? Those high in protein; are the building blocks of hair, including meats and other sources. Even though you may not be a lover of meat, you should still target a diet high in protein for your hair growth. Endeavor to also increase your protein consumption with highly recommended foods like fish, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

According to Dr. Fusco, women who don’t get enough protein often experience more hair shedding.


5. Avoid excessive heat styling.


If you desire to strengthen and grow your hair, you must reduce the daily use of hot tools.

It has been discovered that regular styling with hot tools could remarkably decrease moisture content.

Anytime you engage in the use of hot tools, ensure that you use a Heat protectant that can be able to stand the heat.
