Tips to Make Your Hair Grow Longer Faster

How do you get your hair to grow faster? There are a lot of ways to help your hair grow longer quickly. We all want those beautiful long, shiny locks of hair that they show on commercials. Normal hair growth is only six to eight inches per year. Dry air, pollution, chemical hair products, and eating poorly can make our hair fragile and breakable.

In order to maximize hair growth we need to encourage healthy hair care. There are natural products without harsh chemicals, to strengthen and thicken limp hair. Nourishing your scalp and hair, increasing scalp circulation, and stimulating hair follicles will help to make your hair grow longer and faster. Healthy hair not only looks great, but it feels good too. These tips will help you boost your hair growth.

Follicle Stimulation

Laser and Infrared Treatments for Hair

Laser hair treatment bathes the hair follicles with a stimulating laserlight. It works by energized the weakened follicles and increases cellular metabolism. Laser light hair treatment increases the blood circulation around the hair follicles which is beneficial to growth. This treatment helps to regrow hair because the stronger hair follicles stimulate regrowth and thicken the hair shafts. You'll see healthy locks of hair after a couple of months of treatments.

Nutritional Supplements

How to Fix Limp Hair

Hair can become limp and lifeless when your diet is poor and even when you are under stress. To prevent unhealthy hair it's important to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of the effects of eating poorly and bad nutrition is hair loss. Eating healthy not only keeps your body feeling good, it helps to maintain hair texture as well. Vitamin B and E help to reduce stress which can promote hair growth. It's suggested that taking a multi-vitamin daily will help with overall hair health.

Tips to Keep Your Hair Healthy - How to Make Hair Grow Faster

  1. Heat will dry out your hair. Use the blow dryer on the low setting.
  2. A good haircut goes a long way in making your hair look healthy.
  3. Avoid styling products with alcohol in them as the alcohol will damage your hair.
  4. Combing and brushing your hair will promote hair growth by losing up the clogged up pores.
  5. Wash your hair in warm rather than hot water.
  6. Don't brush or comb your hair when it's wet as wet hair breaks easier.
  7. Eat a healthy diet as your hair needs the proper minerals and vitamins that make your hair grow.

      I use "Boost it" by L'oreal. It's pretty amazing. Makes my hair fuller. I have tried many products. None of them worked. If Boost it stops working I'll have to be back on the search for good hair products. I enjoy your Lenses.

      Right now I'm hoping to keep the hair that I have. It seems to be quitting on me.

      I have curly, fairly thick hair that tends to go all "floof" when it's humid. Mostly it's just a matter of combing it back when it gets too bad and getting someplace where it's not so humid. I don't mess with it much but people still like how my hair looks.

      I had always loved my hair, but now I'm disheartened with it. While I have been having some allergic reaction, and been stressed, my hair has thinned. I don't know what to do, and will study your tips.
