I know I’m not the first girl who’s spent way too much time Googling ways to grow your hair quickly! We’ve all been there, and after spending too much time researching this I can honestly give you some foolproof ways to grow your hair quickly. Whether it’s by taking a few vitamins everyday, or something as simple as eating protein, it is super easy to grow your hair quickly! I promise you that you will see results; they are my go-to ways to grow my hair.
1. Folic Acid Vitamins
Personally, I take folic acid vitamins and I see hair and nail growth within a few days of taking them. However, if you don’t want to take them you can also add food with folic acid in it to your diet. Citrus fruits (such as oranges and lemons) and leafy vegetables (like spinach) are amazing sources of folic acid! In my opinion, this is one of the easiest ways to grow your hair quickly!
2. Drink Water
Staying hydrated sounds easy enough, but sometimes life gets busy and you forget to get your 64 ounces a day. Drinking the appropriate amount of water everyday obviously has many benefits. However, in terms of your hair, the more water you drink the healthier your hair will be, and that means it will grow faster! It’s an easy tip that will not only benefit your hair, but your body as a whole!
3. Stay Away from Heat
This one is tricky depending on your hair type. I’m lucky enough to have a hair type that allows me to go almost completely heat-free, but if you have a different hair type this may not be as easy for you. If you are able to, let your hair air-dry, and don’t flatiron or curl it. The less heat you put on your hair, the less it breaks and damages your hair, leading to healthier hair that grows faster.
4. Protein is Key
Eating protein is essential when it comes to growing your hair as quickly as possible. I could throw a bunch of technical terms at you about what protein does for your hair, or I could make it easy. I’ll make it easy. Protein is necessary for healthy and long hair growth. The more you eat, the faster your hair will grow. You may even be getting a good amount of protein already! Turkey, chicken, fish and cheese are all great sources of protein that you may already eat regularly!
5. Scalp Massages
You don’t need to go anywhere fancy or pay a lot of money for scalp massages. You can, but you don’t need to. Simply taking five minutes out of your day everyday to massage your scalp will stimulate your hair follicles and help your hair grow. It seems too easy, but it really does help.
6. Don’t Pull Your Hair Back
The more you wear your hair pulled back, the more hair you pull out and break. Wearing your hair pulled back too much leads to damage and breakage and only hurts, not helps, hair growth. Wear your hair pulled back in moderation, not excessively; it’s not helping you grow your hair!
7. Excessive Brushing
Try to stick to brushing your hair once or twice a day. Anything more than that is excessive and will also pull your hair out. Sometimes it may feel like brushing your hair is helping your hair’s health, but in excessive amounts brushing damages it. Be careful!
