If you want your hair to grow faster, there are a few things you can do to encourage the process. Here’s a roundup of our best advice for hacking the speed of your hair growth:
Keep it Healthy
To make sure that your hair grows at a good rate, you’ll need to stay on top of regular trims. By visiting our salon on a regular basis, you can keep split ends at bay and encourage stronger, heartier hair.
Nutritional deficiencies are actually one of the main reasons why your hair can become weak and damaged. Eat a balanced diet and check in with your doctor on whether you need to supplement your diet. For example, a lack of iron can result in dull or thin hair. To counter this deficiency, its recommended to eat omega-3 fatty foods, vitamin E and vitamin B to enhance your hair growth.
Frequently changing up your hair color and using lighteners can exacerbate dry hair and strands that look dull. Talk to one of our stylists about what can be done to ensure that you don’t compromise your hair health when going after certain looks.
Good Scalp Care
All healthy hair starts at the scalp. By keeping your scalp clear of product or oil buildup, you can promote hair growth. One way to do this is to give yourself frequent scalp massages or to use a scalp scrub treatment (think an exfoliator for your head) once a week.
Be Smart with a Brush
Many of us know better but do it anyway: don’t brush your hair when it is wet. If you do, use a wide tooth comb to detangle your locks and start slowly at the ends while working your way up. Once your hair is dry, a good boar bristle brush is a great option to brush fragile or damaged hair.
