There are many impressive hairstyles that one can create with long hair. However, for some people, the hardest part can actually be growing your hair long enough to try out these styles. Generally, most people’s hair will grow around six or seven inches per year – although there are many factors that can hinder growth such as stress, health and eating habits. Those with short hair looking to change their style to something longer will normally, unfortunately, have to wait quite a long time before they can achieve this. However, hair growth can be stimulated in a number of simple ways to make the process quicker.
Organic and natural ingredients are a great way to stimulate your hair and speed up its growth. In particular, almond oils and peppermint oils are good for this. Creating a mixture of these and rubbing them into your scalp before you wash your hair will help facilitate the rejuvenation process. People looking to grow their hair quicker should consider doing this. Furthermore, herbalists also recommend rubbing nettle juice into your scalp before showering. The natural ingredients of nettle are among the best ways to stimulate hair follicles and help your hair grow quicker.
There is a wide range of food products that help your hair grow faster. Anything that is rich in vitamins C and D should be part of your diet if you want to grow out your hair. Vitamins C and D are both antioxidants that help strengthen hair and prevent damage so make sure you eat plenty of oranges, peppers and strawberries. Similarly, protein and omega 3 can yield results. Egg yolk is a great source of omega 3 as it contains biotin, a micronutrient essential for improving your hair. Milk, cheese and red meats are also excellent sources of protein. Since hair is made from protein, you must ensure this is part of your daily diet if you want to speed up the growth of your hair.
Cleanliness is one of the main factors that stimulate hair growth. Making sure your hair has oxygen and the flow of blood around your scalp is not being hindered are both essential for helping your hair grow at a quick rate. You can do this by regularly washing your hair with shampoo and ensuring that it is brushed afterwards with a good quality hair brush. This not only cleans your scalp removing the gunk that might be preventing its healthiness; it also guarantees that you don’t get damaging knots in your hair and the oils, nutrients and ingredients are distributed properly.
