3 tips to growing your hair!



We’ve all been there. You head to the salon, ready to try out a new shorter hairstyle, only to realise afterwards that the bob you were so excited about isn’t what you thought it would be. Whether you’re recovering from a bad cut or hoping for waist-length waves, waiting for your hair to grow can be a seriously tedious process.

The average person’s hair grows a quarter of an inch to half an inch per month. And while there isn’t one miracle cure for faster hair growth, there are several steps you can take to help speed up the process. Here are our top 3 secrets to growing your hair faster:

1. Try vitamins

Most vitamins that contain biotin (along with iron and folic acid) are said to promote healthy hair growth. Biotin will not only help your hair grow longer faster, but your skin and nails will reap the benefits too. Of course, it is best to consult your doctor before taking a new type of vitamin supplement.

2. Stick to healthy hair diet

Whole grains and foods rich in calcium and the amino acid cysteine all promote hair growth. Cysteine is found in foods including poultry, eggs, red peppers, garlic, onions, brussel spouts, yogurt, oatmeal, and broccoli. And if you prefer to stay away from supplements like the ones mentioned above, you can get your biotin from nuts (especially almonds and peanuts) egg yolks, soybeans, and fish.

3. Indulge in a scalp massage

Giving yourself an at-home scalp massage increases blood flow to the scalp, which helps nutrients get to your follicles more quickly. So when you’re shampooing or rinsing your hair, try massaging your head with your fingertips to stimulate hair growth.
