There are plenty of ways to help your hair grow fast for those times when you want it long and you want it now. Of course, you can always get extensions, but that option can be pricey and a bit of a headache if you are not prepared. These ways to help your hair grow fast are much less expensive than hair extensions. The average person's hair grows one centimeter to half an inch per month. Here are a few great ways to increase that hair growth up to a quarter of an inch in 30 days!
1. Prenatal Vitamins
Most of us are familiar with this wives' tale of ways to help your hair grow longer, but the surprising part is that it actually works! Unfortunately, the high amounts of iron in prenatal vitamins can lead to health risks for those not preggers. For this reason, we should keep prenatal vitamins and all their hair growth greatness to those who actually have a bun in their oven.
2. Hair, Skin, and Nails Vitamins
Pregnant women do not get to keep all the hair growth fun. Another great option for those not with child is to take a hair, skin, and nails vitamin. These vitamins increase the strength of nails and hair while helping skin keep a healthy complexion. As always, I recommend an organic vitamin that is made with natural ingredients instead of the lab synthesized kind.
3. Shampoos and Conditioners
Did you know that there are shampoos and conditioners out there for hair growth? There are, and some of them even work! Although there are tons, I have tried and love Revita's High Performance Hair Stimulating shampoo and conditioner. The anti-DHA complex along with amino acids help hair grow longer and thicker, faster. This brand is also great for those with sensitive skin.
4. Hair Masks
To get hair longer, faster, keeping it healthy is vital. A hair mask every 10 days to 2 weeks will help keep hair moisturized and reduce breakage from being dry or damaged. It would also help to limit massive styling and sleeping with hair tied up. All of these increase hair breakage.
5. A Healthy Scalp
Our scalps are where our hair follicles are located, so it makes sense that a healthy scalp will create healthier hair. Scalp massages and tingling shampoos will help activate nerves and increase follicle activity. There are also plenty of hair masks out there that promise great hair and scalp health all at once.
6. Coconut Oil
Like hair masks, coconut oil will help keep the hair and scalp moisturized as well as placing much needed nutrients back into it. Apply coconut oil to your hair after a shower, avoiding the roots, to help keep hair healthy and ridiculously shiny. For serious scalp moisture, apply coconut oil to the scalp and leave in for 20 minutes. You can do this once a month.
7. A Healthy Diet
Our body is only able to use the nutrients we put into it. If we are putting garbage into it, we will get garbage out. Eating healthy will help give a better complexion, a healthier immune system, higher energy levels, and hair that is healthier and grows faster. Taking a multivitamin will always help when it comes to eating, and living, healthier.
There are so many myths and truths when it comes to growing hair fast. All of these methods are tried and true for giving healthier, thicker, and faster growing hair. What hair myths do you believe or not believe?
