Because one centimeter per month is really not enough, discover some simple tips to make your hair grow faster. Stimulate hair growth.
It’s a bit of the eternal dilemma: to cut or not to cut?
Very often, in the summer, you feel like changing heads, lightening the mass, cutting off the tips. And once winter returns, we only dream of one thing: finding a long mane!
How do you do it? To help nature and speed things up a bit, there are a few tips, recipes, and products to make your hair grow faster.
1. GRANDMA’S RECIPE AND VEGETABLE OILS TO MAKE HAIR GROW FASTER.
Natural skincare works very well to boost hair growth. Discover our favorite recipe and some vegetable oils that will promote hair fiber growth.
The homemade care recipe: Ginger Mask
Ginger is known to be a powerful scalp stimulant and is one of the most powerful ingredients for stimulating hair growth.
- In a container, mix 1 tablespoon of ginger powder with 2 tablespoons of sesame, olive, or jojoba oil until a homogeneous paste is obtained.
- Apply the mixture directly to the scalp, parting by parting, using the fingertips for a gentle massage.
- Leave on for 30 minutes, then rinse and shampoo to remove any remaining residue.
Vegetable oils for faster hair growth
Nature is well done and is full of effective products capable of boosting hair growth. Discover our 3 favorite vegetable oils.
Castor oil: also known as “castor oil”, this thick vegetable oil is known to promote hair growth but also lashes and nails. To facilitate its application, mix it with a lighter oil such as argan or olive oil. Apply it directly to the scalp and lengths and massage gently for 5 minutes. Leave on for 30 minutes, rinse and shampoo.
Hemp oil: rich in ceramides, amino acids, and essential fatty acids, this vegetable oil has powerful nutritive capacities for hair fibers. It is used as a mask on the scalp and the lengths bring shine, volume, and elasticity (thus limiting breakage). Apply, massage, leave on for 30 minutes, rinse and shampoo.
Mustard oil: this is the favorite vegetable oil of Indian women. It strengthens the hair, stimulates hair growth by activating blood circulation and brings softness and shine to the lengths. Apply it directly to the roots and massage. You may feel a warm sensation. This is normal. Do this treatment once a week maximum. Massage, leave on for 15 minutes, rinse and shampoo.
2. WASH YOUR HAIR PROPERLY.
Washing our hair is one of those rituals that we do so often that we forget to think about our method. And yet, certain gestures that are poorly executed and repeated can have a negative impact on the health and appearance of our hair.
- Always choose your shampoo based on your scalp and not on the condition of your lengths and ends.
- Choose your treatment according to the condition of your lengths and ends dry, dehydrated, colored, curly,…
- Detangle your hair while it is still dry using a boar bristle brush and a few drops of oil if necessary. Be sure to detangle them BEFORE you wet them as water will tend to make them heavier and therefore more susceptible to breakage.
- Once your hair is well untangled, wet it abundantly.
- Put two drops of product in your hands and emulsify it by adding a little warm or hot water.
- Massage in a circular motion with the pulp of your fingers, not your nails, as this stimulates the sebaceous glands and thus the production of sebum.
- Frequent use shampoos (for normal scalps) are applied in a single application and should be rinsed off immediately. Treating shampoos (for sensitive or irritated hair) is applied in two applications and left on for 4 to 5 minutes.
- Always start by rinsing the nape of the neck before the top of the head, otherwise, the shampoo may accumulate on the bottom of your hair.
3. EXFOLIATE THE SCALP TO STIMULATE GROWTH
We had never heard of it either, rest assured. But as weird as it sounds, it exists and it works!
Why is the scalp so important? Because the bulb, the living part of the hair, depends on it. Implanted in the scalp, it is the scalp that produces the hair fiber. Pollution, cigarettes, unsuitable products, poorly rinsed shampoos (it takes 35 liters of water to rinse the hair effectively!) all affect its good health. As a result, the life cycle is completely turned upside down. The hair grows slower and less well.
Scalp exfoliation consists of a 5-minute massage on the moistened scalp. If your scalp is sensitive or reactive, go ahead. Otherwise, it’s great for removing residues from shampoos, styling products, pollution. It has the same properties as facial scrubs. It eliminates dead cells and optimizes the penetration of the active ingredients of the washing care products. Ideally, it is done once a week, before shampooing.
The recipe for a homemade body scrub
- Use coarse salt or coffee grounds with a little olive or castor oil. Mix to obtain a homogeneous paste.
- Apply directly to the scalp and massage with the fingertips in circular motions. This gesture is ideal for removing impurities, dead cells, and dandruff while eliminating excess sebum.
- The massaging action will also activate the micro-circulation which has the effect of stimulating hair growth.
4.THE HAIRDRESSING APPOINTMENT
Paradoxically, for hair to grow faster, it is sometimes necessary to cut it.
Weird? Not so much, since by cutting a centimeter as soon as the ends become thinner, split (the dreaded split ends!) and become brittle, the hair regains its peachy look, becomes stronger, and starts to grow faster again. The more forked and poorly maintained the hair is, the slower its growth is.
So, we go to the hairdresser as soon as the ends fray, on average every 3 to 6 months depending on the nature and health of the hair.
5. WHAT TO EAT TO MAKE YOUR HAIR GROW FASTER?
Hair that grows faster is healthy hair. To keep hair in top shape, it is also important to adopt a balanced diet and to favor certain foods.
Here are the top ten foods that are excellent for healthy hair and promote hair growth:
1.Lean red meat
3.Foods rich in mineral silica such as bananas, beer, grapes or oats
8.Vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables such as strawberries, lemons, broccoli, green peppers, etc.
9.Foods rich in omega 3 such as fatty fish (salmon, sardines) and nuts
For even faster growth, food supplements are also valuable allies.
