Long, silky and smooth hair has always been a dream for any girl. The long silky hair makes a girl look more girly, attractive, and alluring to men in most cultures. However, because of the unhealthy living environment, unfresh water, and unbalanced diet, many people have gradually lost their hair.
Given that fact, it’s an uprising demand to learn the technique of making the hair grow faster. If you are in such an irritating case, let’s take this article as guidance on how to make your hair grow faster!
How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster?
To know how to grow your hair effectively, first, we need to understand the science behind hair growth. There are 5 million follicles you are born with, and you will lose about 50 hairs a day.
Typically, the blood in your scalp will flow directly into these follicles and then supplies oxygen and nutrients to the hair. With the blood and oxygen given, the hair can grow strongly and gradually.
As the hair grows, the scalp will push through the head skin and absorb it in the oil gland. Your hair will look shinier, glossier, and silkier because of that oil gland on the head.
Use Scalp Care Products
With the fact given, if you want to grow your hair, it’s a must to enhance the process of absorbing oxygen and nutrition into follicles. In this part, I want to introduce you to scalp care products to strengthen hair.
There are plenty of scalp care products in the market nowadays, so just search on the Internet with keywords like “scalp mask” or “soothing shampoo,” and you will find a bunch of products to choose from.
However, for beginners, you should pay more attention to scalp oil, mask, or serum than exfoliation products because the rough texture can create micro-abrasions on the head skin, which later causes bacterias and fungi.
Besides, scalp care products with ingredients like mint, tea tree, or citrus-based oil are better for your hair blood circulation.
We need to remind you of one tip for using a scalp care product:
- First, you should better use them once a week; otherwise, there will be so much oil produced, which causes countereffects.
- Second, when applying the product, please rub it directly to the scalp, not just the hair alone.
- Third, let the product sit in your head for five minutes at least, then wash with water.
Trim Your Hair Frequently
Another recommendation for you is to trim your hair frequently. The longer your hair is, the more split ends it has. Hence, we recommend you prevent hair from breaking up by trimming your hair frequently.
To be specific, when your hair grows long, there can be external causes like tying hair, shampooing, or styling hair that accidentally cut down the strand from inside.
When we mention “from the inside,” it means you cannot recognize it, so even if your hair is damaged and slowly dies, you cannot even know.
As a result, what grows later is not the healthy, useful, silky hair, but the frustrating hair you must go to the salon to remove after that. In brief, it’s better just to keep your hair about 8 inches or 20 centimeters long to prevent splitting.
Apply Less Shampoo
When reading this section, many people will get mad when I say: “Don’t use shampoo too much,” because how can you take good care of your hair while not using shampoo, right? But, in fact, it is. Using too much shampoo is one of the most surprising, unexpected reasons that make one lose hair.
The shampoo is a chemical substance that contains many cleansing compounds, which accidentally strips out the natural oil on the hair. With that being said, using too much shampoo harms the strong nature of the hair and kills the multiplying of the hair.
Each type of hair demands a different washing frequency. The thicker and coarser hair can still be good without cleaning for a few days, but thinner hair can turn greasy after only a day. For people with such light hair, please buy dry shampoo to clear up the dandruff but still be able to keep the hair strand strong.
Avoid Heat Tools
Girls always love being beautiful. For people with curly hair, they love having their hair straightened. Girls with thin, long, straight hair dream of having wavy hair because the big, voluminous hair seems impressive.
Thus, there is always a demand for styling and changing the natural hairstyle for most girls in the modern world. However, I have to admit, that is such a bad habit if you are losing your hair.
To be specific, hair styling tools like curling iron, hair straighteners, chemical relaxers, etc. all require heat to change the hair’s complexion. These tools can “break” the natural composition and flex the hair into the style demanded by keeping the heat.
As a result, these tools destroy the hair from the inside. After using heat to style the hair, what leaves in the strand is breakage and dead cells.
The most common advice that people often hear from hair stylists at the salon is: periodically check-up at the salon with the professionals so that the stylists can “touch up” and take care of your hair. However, it seems that without periodic visits to the salon with so much time and money consumed, is it better to just not going to the salon, avoid heating tools, and take simple caring techniques?
Here is the only thing you should do to protect your hair from breakage and let it grow healthily: after shampooing, blow-dry the hair with dryers with cool mode, or sit in front of a fan to dry. However, if you have to use heat tools, then it’s recommended to use heat-protectant spray.
Get a Scalp Massage
People tend to spend too much effort and money to “save” the hair, but they usually forget the most basic thing about hair: the scalp. The scalp is the root, the place for hair to grow up, and the “base” of necessary oil. In other words, ignoring the scalp is just like growing a tree without watering the soil.
Given that fact, we suggest you take concern on your scalp just by a simple technique: massage it daily. You can buy a scalp massager on the Internet, or just use your fingers to rub around the head and slightly push in the stressed areas.
This method seems to be weird and nonsense, but it was proven to be scientifically beneficial. By massaging, the blood can flow faster and smoother into the scalp, enhancing the health of the roots and the follicles. Besides, people can relieve stress and headache by using the scalp massage method.
Typically, everyone with any kind of hair, from dirty, dry, oily, wet hair, can use this method. However, if you add a little nutrient-rich oil into the scalp massage, the effect can multiply.
We have gone through some techniques to help your hair grow faster. Each method requires certain preparation, and not that any strategy is applicable to your hair, so please read the guideline carefully and select out the one that is the most suitable for you.
Besides, you can also combine two techniques to boost the effect on your hair or repetitively apply the method that works for you.
Hope that this article helps provide you with insights into how to make your hair grow faster. Thank you for reading, and enjoy your experience!
