Whether you’re trying to grow out a short hair style or just trying to get your hair long enough so it’s past your shoulder, it’s the long waiting time for hair to grow that makes this process so unbearable. Just imagine, our hair normally grows about half an inch a month, that’s only six inches of hair in a year. No wonder a lot of people complain about growing their hair, normal hair growth is so sluggish.
Fortunately, there are ways to encourage hair to grow faster, just follow the tips below and your hair will grow long in no time.
Food for Hair
Eating healthy foods is very important for hair growth. Like any cell in the body, our hair needs nutrients for growth. Specifically, our hair needs protein because this is what hair is mostly made of. Foods rich in protein are: milk, cheese, lentils, soya beans, fish and lean meats from beef, pork and chicken.
Vitamins are nutrients that our body needs to function properly. Generally, vitamins act as co-enzymes that help the body metabolize food more efficiently, but of course each vitamin has a specific role or function. As for hair, there are two popular vitamins that can help hair grow faster and these are biotin and pantothenic acid. Biotin or vitamin B7 makes each hair strand strong, minimizing hair breakage. Pantothenic acid or provitamin B5 makes hair beautifully soft, shiny and slippery, which makes hair easier to comb, also minimizing breakage. It is important to mention that both vitamins should be applied directly to the scalp and hair, this is the reason why these two vitamins are used on hair products like shampoos and conditioners.
Buy Quality Hair Products
It is also important to keep the hair and scalp clean, this makes the scalp ideal for hair growth. So why not use a product that not only clean your hair and scalp, but also stimulate the hair follicles to grow hair faster. FAST or Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy is a deep cleansing shampoo and conditioner that is specifically made to stimulate fast hair growth. What is great about FAST is it’s made of natural ingredients, making it safe even after years of use.
