When it comes to hair growth, we all want fast growing hair, especially when we cut their hair too short or anyone who had a bad haircut. Fortunately, there are natural ways to get fast growing hair, follow the tip below to get fast growing hair the natural way.
Eating well and consuming healthy foods can help make your hair grow faster. Protein is very important for hair growth since this is what hair is mostly made of. Foods rich in protein are lean meat from beef, pork or poultry. Also soya and beans are a good source of vegetable proteins.
Scalp and Hair Hygiene
Keeping your hair and scalp clean also help make hair grow faster. Regular shampooing can remove dirt and excess oils that can accumulate on your hair. This can prevent any microbial or fungal growth which can lead to slow hair growth or even worse, patchy hair loss.
Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins are needed nutrients that the body could not synthesize, so it is important to take our vitamins regularly. Vitamins act as co-enzymes that help the body metabolize nutrients more efficiently. For hair, there are the so called “hair vitamins” which are: pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and biotin (vitamin B7). Vitamin B5 makes the hair really shiny and slippery which makes brushing or combing much easier, preventing tangles and hair breakage. Vitamin B7 makes each hair strand stronger, also helps in minimizing hair breakage. To get the hair benefits, both vitamins should be applied directly to the scalp and hair.
Minerals especially iron is important for hair growth. Iron is needed for the red blood cells to carry oxygen all over the body, this includes the hair follicles. Our hair producing cells, located at the base of the hair follicles, are one of the fastest growing cells in the body. So it is important to supply these cells with all the oxygen it needs for hair growth.
Massaging the scalp every time you shower improves blood circulation to the scalp. This improves blood circulation hence increases nutrient and oxygen delivery to the scalp.
