Hair Growth Tips


Trying to get your hair to grow faster and thicker can feel like a long-drawn game of chance. While technically, hair is the fastest-growing tissue in the human body, the average rate of growth of hair is 0.5 to 1.7 cm per month or anywhere between two to eight inches per year. While this may seem like a lot, it can feel like it takes a long time for hair to grow, especially since we’re so eagerly waiting for it to happen.

It’s common knowledge that the normal rate of shedding is 50-100 hairs per day. However, if you think your growth is really stunted, there are certain tweaks you can make to your day-to-day haircare regimen to boost hair growth. You can try a wide range of techniques and practices to boost hair growth. From changing the products you use to adjusting your diet to include more valuable proteins, let’s look at some of the most significant practices that you can develop to boost hair growth.

How to grow hair faster

      • 1.Frequently trim your hair: This might seem like a counterintuitive thing to do on the surface, but one of the keys to keeping long hair healthy is regularly trimming off the ends of your hair. “While haircuts don’t make your hair grow any faster, they get rid of split ends that break your hair,” explains Michael Dueñas, a celebrity hairstylist based in Los Angeles. Removing the broken parts of your hair can restore your hair’s overall appearance and make it look like your hair is growing faster, since the only thing you can see are visibly healthy strands of hair. Remember, split ends that break can lead to your hair losing length, in addition to shine, volume and smoothness.
      • 2. Eat a varied and comprehensive diet: You can use all the finest hair products in the world and you can still suffer from slow hair growth. It’s fairly simple: to help your hair grow quickly, you need to ‘feed’ your hair the right nutrients from the inside. Your next question might be “what foods make hair grow quicker?”. Any food that is high in protein can help your hair grow faster, especially foods like beans, nuts, whole grains and tofu. We recommend having a diet high in vegetarian protein to promote hair growth. According to Dr Francesca Fusco, women who don’t get enough protein in their diet experience “more hair shedding”.
      • 3. Add vitamins to your regular diet: If you aren’t getting enough nutrition in your diet – and this can be due to a variety of reasons, you must consider using a vitamin supplement to address the gap in nutrition. Vitamins like biotin, Vitamin C and Vitamin B can support hair health and growth. Make sure to include the following components in your diet:
            • . Vitamin A
            • . Vitamin C
            • . Vitamin E
            • . Zinc
            • . Iron
            • . Omega-3 fatty acids
      • 4. Focus more on hydration, and less on shampoo: How often you shampoo your hair has a direct impact on your hair’s health. Shampooing or cleansing your hair only two to three times a week allows your scalp’s natural oils to moisturize and lubricate your hair, allowing it to repair itself. We highly recommend swapping out your detergent based shampoo for something milder, like an Earth Collective Cleanser to minimize the damage to your hair every time you wash it. Always remember to use a hair mask to restore moisture to your hair before a wash, and back it up with a hair conditioner for extra protection.
        By following these simple steps, you’ll be sure to speed up your hair growth over time. Stay tuned to our blog for more tips on how you can take care of your hair.
