There are times when you want to try out a hair style that you’ve always wanted and end up looking terrible because the new hair style doesn’t suit you. Well, ending up with a hair style that doesn’t suit you is like having a bad haircut. Wouldn’t it be nice to get your hair growing really fast?
Normally, hair grows about half an inch a month, that’s only 6 inches in a year. But not to worry, there are ways to stimulate hair growth which will be discussed below:
Nutrients For Hair Growth
To get your hair growing really fast, it is best to start off with proper nutrition. You won’t be able to stimulate fast and healthy hair growth if you’re an extreme dieter. Just like any cell in our body, our hair needs nutrients to grow, especially protein because this is what hair is mostly made of. So consuming the right amounts of protein daily is excellent for hair growth. Excellent food sources of protein are: lentils, soya beans, milk, cheese, fish and lean meat from beef, pork and chicken.
Vitamins For Hair Growth
Our body needs vitamins in order to function properly. For hair growth, there are the so called “hair vitamins” which are: pantothenic acid or famously called pro vitamin B5 and Biotin. A lot of people think that taking large amounts of biotin and pantothenic acid will promote fast hair growth. The fact is, both vitamins promote hair growth by simply apply them directly to hair and scalp. Pantothenic acid makes the hair really soft, shiny and slippery, preventing tangles and hair breakage. Biotin also prevents hair breakage by making each hair strand strong.
Health and Hair Growth
Your overall health is also a determining factor on how fast your hair grows. Stress can influence a lot of bodily functions in the body and it is believed that stress can cause slow thin hair growth and even hair loss. One way to counter the effects of stress, is having a healthy body and mind. So regular exercise is not only good for your overall health, it’s great for hair too.
