3 Steps to Make Your Hair Grow Twice As Fast​

Step 1/3


How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster by protecting your hair from heat and damage

Don’t Over Wash

Don't overwash to make your hair grow faster

Over-shampooing leads to broken, dry, and brittle locks due to the cleanser stripping the hair of its natural oils.

The number of times to shampoo your hair per week will vary, depending on your hair type (thicker vs. brittle hair).

Thicker, coarser hair types can get away without washing for a few days, while thinner hair types may find that the hair feels greasy even after one day.

For healthier hair, use dry shampoos as an excellent alternative to avoid excess grease as you nurture longer strands.

Don’t Bleach

Don't Bleach or Color your hair to make your hair grow faster

Any hairstylist will tell you the most obvious way to help your hair grow faster is to stop bleaching.

That’s because bleach is a strong chemical that will weaken your hair by changing its natural structure and strength.

Bleached hair will become less elastic and dry, breaking off, and you will end up with uneven hair.

The melanin in your hair will never return to normal, and no hairdresser can bring your healthy hair back.

Avoid Heat

Don't dry or Iron your hair to make your hair grow faster

Even people with stronger hair should avoid hot tools, hair straighteners, and hair dryers.

Blow dryers and styling irons damage hair fast by making it dry and brittle, leading to breakage and shorter hair length.

The best way to avoid heat styling and achieve proper scalp health is via natural air-drying by covering it with a towel to retain moisture.

Always use a good heat protectant if you MUST curl or straighten your hair.

Some of the best heat protectants are made from natural ingredients to complement hair nourishment.

Handle With Care

Handle your hair with care and don't brush your hair hard to make your hair grow faster

Treat your hair with great care to prevent unnecessary hair breakage, especially when wet.

If you brush your hair in the shower, comb it with a wide-tooth detangler rather than a brush.

Dry your hair with a soft towel in slow and tender movements.

If you don’t have straight hair, try to brush in the shower with a wide toothcomb while you still have leave-in conditioner on your hair.

No Extensions or Braids

No Extensions or Braids to make your hair grow faster

One of the significant reasons not to get hair extensions is the damage they cause.

Due to the weight of the extensions pulling the hair, some extensions break off, leaving bald patches.

Ponytails and braids cause hair to break, especially if your style is pulled tightly.

Those who wear hair braids daily suffer from permanent hair damage even without realizing it.

Only Satin or Silk

Use satin or silk pillows to make your hair grow faster

Compared to cotton pillowcases, silk or satin hair covers/pillowcases are far more suitable for the health of your hair.

For once, cotton absorbs all the moisture from your strands, leading to tangles and breakage.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase generates less friction, damage, and dryness, speeding up hair growth.

Get a Trim

Get a Trim To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Trimming hair – not the same as getting a full haircut – might sound counterproductive if you want to grow your hair longer.

Yet, regular trims remove dry and damaged hair, which is necessary for natural, healthy hair growth.

If left untreated, split ends will work their way up the shaft of your hair strand and cause even more breakage.

The frequency of the trims depends on the condition of your hair, hairstyle, and daily routine – anywhere from six weeks to six months.

That said, the better you care for your hair, the less often you’ll need trims, and the longer your hair can grow naturally.

Use The Right Hair Products

Hair Growth Products To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

By using quality hair products, I mean shampoos, conditioners, serums, masks, and hair oils that heal hair, not just for cosmetic appearance.

E.g. Calecim’s advanced hair system (hair growth stem cell serum) is known for its efficacy as a hair loss treatment.

Avoid – at all costs – conditioners that have short-chain alcohols, as they are known to dry your hair very fast.

Use hair masks with rich content in lecithin and protein to strengthen, nourish, and heal the hair strands.

You can make your hair mask by mixing two eggs with two tablespoons of olive oil or try already-made ones.

Apply the mask to dry hair and leave it on for 30 minutes, then shampoo and condition it as usual.

Use keratin-based shampoos and leave-in conditioners as building blocks to strengthen your hair and avoid hair-splitting.

Keep homemade hair masks and scalp serums in dedicated skincare fridges to avoid oxidative stress, food smells, or bacteria contamination.

Get a Hot Oil Treatment

Get a Hot Oil Treatment To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Nutrient-rich oil treatments are excellent for accelerating hair growth and smoothening hair fiber.

Rosemary oil has been used for centuries to stimulate hair growth by dilating blood vessels and stimulating hair follicles to produce new keratin (hair) cells.

Hot castor oil treatments are the heroes of the hair world and for good reasons.

Castor oil has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that fight micro-scalp infections that prevent your hair from growing.

Second, it’s filled with omega-6 fatty acids, vitamin E, proteins, and other nutrients that penetrate and seal your hair shaft to retain moisture.

Massage Your Scalp

Massage Your Scalp To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

After spending so much money on hair products, it’s easy to forget where the hair growth starts: the scalp.

If you want healthy and strong hair that grows fast, ensure good blood circulation on your scalp – the skin of your head.

Like good soil is essential to growing healthy plants and flowers, a solid scalp is a foundation for healthy hair growth.

A good scalp massage will increase blood flow to the scalp, enhance the roots’ strength, and help nutrients get to the hair follicle faster.

Research shows that scalp massages help with stress hormones and blood pressure.

Massage your scalp once a day with the fingers or a scalp massager.

You can do it on dry or wet hair; it does not make a difference.

Step 3/3


Best Vitamins and Supplements To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Follow a Healthy Diet

Make Your Hair Grow Faster by Following a Healthy Diet

Research shows that over 50% of people with slow hair growth or hair loss are vitamin deficient or have poor food habits.

Have a balanced diet of 50% protein (hair needs a lot of protein to grow), 30% carbs, and 20% healthy fats.

Eat plenty of leafy greens, walnuts, berries, olive oil, and avocados to feed, nourish, and protect your hair.

Eating honey, cinnamon, coconut oil, and collagen supplements must be part of your beauty trend diet but a must for healthy hair growth and radiant skin.

Biotin-rich foods are also recommended, especially for those lacking poor nutrition, essential nutrients, or genetic nutrient deficiencies.

Cinnamon has anti-microbial properties and terrific hair benefits by stimulating blood circulation and creating healthy strands.

Take Fatty Acids

Make Your Hair Grow Faster by Taking Fatty Acids

On average, hair grows approximately a quarter to half an inch monthly.

Supplementing with fatty acids speeds up the process and improves the hair shafts’ quality: thicker, healthier, and shinier.

Organic food fatty acids are more accessible for the body to utilize and will deliver the optimum ratio of nutrients, just the way nature intended.

You can also supplement with healthy fats like Omega-3, known to jump-start hair growth.

Healthy fats are essential to hair health since our bodies can’t produce omega-3 fatty acids independently.

Therefore, it’s essential to supplement with fatty acids to nourish hair follicles and give strands that intense, shiny, lustrous glow.

Keep Up With Vitamins

Hair Vitamins Make Your Hair Grow Faster

To be clear, taking hair vitamins does not mean skipping quality food.

Yet, hair cells need essential vitamins and minerals to grow and sustain luscious locks.

Supplementing daily with hair-growth vitamins will help the hair grow faster ‘from the inside.’

Some of the best hair supplements are vitamins C, E, A, the whole B complex, and the active ingredient biotin.

If you hate swallowing pills, replace them with hair growth gummies, which are easy and tasty.

Check Your Meds

Check your meds if you want to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Unfortunately, most prescription medications are associated with hair loss.

Some of the worst prescribed drugs that stop hair growth and cause hair loss are antihypertensives (blood pressure), statins, hormone replacements, birth control pills, testosterone boosters, and most antidepressants.

Note: always discuss with your doctor before stopping any medications.

Don’t Smoke

Don't Smoke If you want to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

There’s no room for debate; smoking negatively impacts hair growth, shine, and quality.

Smoking restricts blood flow by limiting oxygen and nutrients needed by the scalp and follicles to grow healthy hair.

Moreover, the smoking toxins run into the hair follicles and cause sebum disruption.



Stay Stress Free to make your hair grow faster

How To Make Your Hair Grow Faster: NO STRESS – thevou.com

Stress impacts hair in more ways than one, from split ends to loss of hair patches.

Luckily, it takes traumatic or severe chronic stress to cause hair loss.

However, daily stress impacts collagen production and depletes the hair of amino acids and vitamins.

Also, autoimmune diseases of the hair and scalp that cause patchy hair loss, like alopecia areata, can be precipitated or aggravated by bouts of stress.

Keep stress levels at bay by taking five minutes daily to meditate, whether in the morning or before bed.
