Do you wish your hair grew faster than it does? Well, believe it or not, your dreams may come true! We know a lot more about what impacts hair growth these days. There are hundreds of random habits that you don’t even realize are slowing your hair growth.
We’re not talking about how to stop your hair from falling out at the moment. That’s a topic for another day. Instead, we’ll discuss some simple tips for how you can get your hair to grow a bit faster.
Read on if you would like to grow out your hair in a shorter time than you used to!
#1 – Healthy Diet
A healthy body works more efficiently than a weak body. If you tend to over-eat and consume foods that aren’t good for you, your body systems will be affected. Your hair growth is no different. As your body gets weaker, your heart will find it more and more difficult to get enough blood and oxygen through your body.
When this occurs, your hair will likely grow a lot slower. Your brain will determine that hair growth is less important than other functions in your body that keep you alive.
If your body is healthy, then your heart will be able to work efficiently enough to perform all of the actions
#2 – Keep Your Scalp Warm
If your scalp gets too cold, it can also slow the blood flow near your hair follicles. As we already mentioned, slowing the blood flow in your head will also slow the growth of your hair.
When you go outside during cool weather, make sure you cover your head with a warm hat.
At the very least, make sure to wear warm clothes so that your internal body temperature doesn’t decrease.
You should also avoid showering or swimming in cold water. The cold water will have a significant effect on your hair growth. Not only that, but sudden temperature changes are not good for your health, in general. You could get quite sick if that keeps happening.
Protect your health and your hair at the same time!
#3 – Use Hair Conditioner
Hair conditioner benefits your hair in so many ways. Regular shampoo is good for your hair, but it shouldn’t be used too often. Twice a week is often enough to shampoo your hair.
Hair conditioner is less specific as the effects don’t damage your hair from overuse.
Shampoo can dry out your hair roots which may cause trouble down the line. Hair conditioner, on the other hand, is designed to improve the strength of your hair strands and keep them from drying out.
We would still recommend not using conditioner on a daily basis, but even three or four times a week is okay. Make sure you use warm water to rinse the conditioner out of your hair properly, as well as avoid making your scalp too cold. (Just to clarify, you shouldn’t use really hot water either. Temperature changes, either hot or cold are bad for your health.)
#4 – Keep Your Body in Shape
While this tip tends to fall under the same idea as having a healthy diet, you really do need both. A thin body is not a healthy body. Exercise is as important, if not even more important, than eating the right foods.
When you exercise, you gain muscle all through your body. Not only does it improve your physical strength and the shape of your outer frame, but it also improves your organs, bones, and many other internal qualities.
Naturally, being fit and strengthening your body both inside and out also improves how your bodily functions perform. Your heart will have little to no trouble keeping everything in order, including producing hair at a fast, balanced rate!
#5 – Sleep Regularly
If anything is going to throw off your body’s normal functions, it is an irregular sleeping cycle. There are days when you can’t avoid needing to stay up a little bit late and that’s fine.
However, you do need to have a designated sleep and wake cycle.
Your sleep and wake cycle doesn’t have to be at a particular time, such as 10 pm to 6 am. If you work late hours, you can even set it to 1 am to 9 am. The important thing is that you go to sleep at around the same time every day and wake up at about the same time. Aim for 6-8 hours of sleep, depending on how in shape you are. (Fit people tend to require less sleep)
These are just a few tips to get your hair growing faster. There are hundreds of things that you can do that will improve your hair growth. However, the primary tip you can take from this is that the healthier your body is, the better everything works, including hair production!
