To make your hair growth even more healthy and fast, heat the oil a little before massaging it into your scalp. It helps tremendously.
2. TRIM YOUR HAIR AT LEAST EVERY 6 MONTHS:
There are varying opinions on just how to to make your hair grow fast and how many times you should head to the salon for a trim to get rid of those split ends. Well, experts say that regardless of the condition of your hair, we need to get a trim at least every 6 months. If your hair is more prone to getting dry ends and splitting, then it’s definitely got to be sooner than 6 months for you. This may be annoying since your aim is to grow your hair and getting a trim seems like the opposite thing to do, but in the long run, it will! Your hair tips need care and attention too, as their condition affects the root as well.
3. REDUCE BLOW DRYING:
If you’re really serious about growing your hair fast, then you’ll have to sacrifice and let go of your heating and electronic hair devices for at least some time. If you feel that you can’t do without at least blow drying your hair, then do it a favor and make a habit of always rubbing some heat protecting serum on it after stepping out of the shower. Another very essential step to remember is using anti split-end serum or balm on your hair while it’s still damp. By doing so, you’re decreasing the chances of split-ends popping up, hence minimizing those 6 monthly trims.
4. DON’T BRUSH YOUR HAIR WHEN IT’S STILL WET:
Our hair is at its most vulnerable right after it’s been washed, and the most we can do to ensure our hair grows at a fast and in a healthy way is by letting it get damp first and then gently combing the tangles out with a wide toothed comb. Start from the ends and work your way up. You’ll notice a big difference in your hair’s overall look and feel in no time.
5. WASH YOUR HAIR PERIODICALLY:
We shower every day, well most of us anyway, and we reach for the shampoo automatically even if you washed it yesterday. Might be hard to break the habit. Unless your hair is naturally greasy and needs to be washed every 24 hours, try shampooing it every 2 or 3 days, and let nature take its course. In no time, you’ll find your hair free of unnecessary dryness and on its way to growing faster.
6. USE HOME-MADE MASKS:
Simple home-made masks give amazing results. What’s excellent about these is that they’re completely free of any harmful chemicals and are nutritious for our hair in the long run. Crack an egg and mask your hair with it. Eggs are full of different benefits for our hair, and you can also use them depending on your hair type. Egg whites are great for getting rid of grease and excessive build-up, while egg yolks are moisturizing. Adding different ingredients like honey, yogurt, lemon or any essential oil will be even better for your hair growth. Doing so every once or twice a week will surely help out in making your hair grow fast in a healthy way.
7. EAT RIGHT, EXERCISE AND GET PLENTY OF SLEEP:
For healthy skin, we need to eat healthy too, same goes for our hair. Our hair also needs nutrition, just like our body. No matter how much external effort we put into taking care of our hair, if your health is going great your hair will suffer too. Make sure you’re getting the right amount of sleep, drink plenty of water and even if you’re not an exercise fan, evening walk once in a while won’t hurt.
