Your hair can make or break your personal style. Unkempt, unhealthy hair doesn’t usually give a very good impression. On the other hand, well-kept hair which is free of tangles, flowing and healthy can project you as a smart person. Having long, healthy hair is important in such a case but modern life often makes it difficult to keep hair healthy enough for growth. If you’ve been struggling with making your grow faster, we’d like to tell you that it isn’t as tough as you think.
Here are eight natural ways to make your hair grow faster sitting right at home.
1. Trimming is the way to make your hair grow faster
May sound slightly strange to you but the truth is that the longer you keep your hair away from trimming, the farther up the split-ends go which means there will be higher breakage, something you need to avoid if you want long hair. Make sure you go for a trim every two months to keep the ends of your hair healthy and conducive for growth.
2. You need to avoid shampoo every other day if you want your hair to grow faster
This is so because shampoos are supposed to be for cleaning the scalp but regular use can actually make the strong chemicals present in shampoos act as a deterrent to growth. Hence, shampoo your hair only when you need to and not every day (or every alternate day).
3. An oil mask a week can help out with hair growth
A tried and tested method, it is easy to leave this one out given that we all lead busy lives and barely have time for hair masks. However, if you want your hair to grow faster, you need to moisturise it and nourish it with oiling. In fact, keeping the oil in your hair for just about 30 minutes before a wash can go a long way when done regularly.
4. If you want your hair to grow faster, use that hair brush more gently
You know that most days, you try to do a quick job with brushing or even coming your hair. In the process of hurrying, you tend to detangle the hair but in a rather aggressive manner. This obviously harms the hair physically and cause more breakage. Hence, be gentle with your hair even when you’re in a hurry because one moment of harm can cause long-term damage.
5. This one might be difficult but that towel around your wet hair won’t let it grow faster
All of us have the habit of wrapping our wet hair in a towel after a nice wash but, it not only gets more tangled up but it also then becomes more difficult and harmful to clear out the tangles. Moreover, since wet hair is more susceptible to breakage, the small hair just starting to grow get pulled at. Hence, give up on this one habit to grow your hair faster.
