Hair Growth Tips

So naturally, our hair grows up to 6 inches per year which means that by taking the right care of your hair, you will see 1/2 an inch of hair growth every month. That said, some people tend to lose hair more than grow them, this could be caused by the wrong diet and using too many chemicals or heat.

By following the tips below, you will start to see less hair loss and speed up the hair growth process. Now just to be clear, you will not see crazy hair growth but you will notice that your hair is becoming thicker and fuller as time goes by. Here are the tips:

1. Eat protein, biotin, and vitamin C-rich foods.

Foods like legumes, egg yolks, organ meats, nuts, seeds, mushrooms, avocados, and sweet potatoes are rich in biotin. Eggs, lean meat, protein, fish, peas, turkey, and low-fat dairy milk along with yogurt are great sources of protein.

For vitamin C-rich foods, try adding more citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, kiwis grapefruit, strawberries, and vegetables like bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower to your diet often.

2. Scalp massages

There is a lot of talk about the benefits of massaging your scalp for hair. Although more research is needed, this study shows that scalp massages can help increase hair thickness and hair growth. 

Scalp massages work by increasing circulation and blood flow to your scalp. This helps your hair follicles get enough nutrients and oxygen they need to thrive. 

3. Essential oils

Some essential oils are very effective in increasing hair growth and thickness. Research shows that peppermint essential oil induces the anagen phase (hair growth phase) which means that using this oil can help your hair grow faster.

Another essential oil that increases hair thickness is lavender oil because it actually delays the catagen phase (hair shedding phase) and maintains the hair growth phase. 

Now when using essential oils to massage your scalp or within your hair growth remedies, make sure to dilute them with other carrier oils such as jojoba, coconut, or olive oil.
