- Eat rich in protein & Biotin-rich
Biotin, also known as Vitamin H, is one of the B complex vitamins that help the body convert food into energy. It assists in the metabolism of fats, carbs and amino acids which are the building blocks of protein.
Hair begins to grow from the root of the follicle which is made up of cells of protein. For faster hair growth, you need to eat a diet rich in both Biotin and protein.
The daily recommended allowance of Biotin is 30 micrograms, which you can ensure you’re achieving by taking in a supplement form. If you prefer, you can eat foods that are naturally high in Biotin. This has many other body-boosting benefits too, such as stronger eyelashes.
Here’s a list of Biotin and protein-rich foods:
- Almonds, Peanuts, Pecans and Walnuts
- Eggs (the yolk has one of the highest concentrations of Biotin)
- Milk and Cheese
- Pork and Cooked Liver
- Salmon and Sardines
- Make conditioner your friend
You might have noticed that often the ends of the hair are thinner and damaged when compared to the root end connecting to the scalp. This is because the lower end doesn’t get nourished well. Conditioning after every hair wash helps seal the cuticle at the end and prevents the hair from further damage. This makes your hair healthier and makes it grow faster.
3. Relaxing hot oil massages
A good hot oil massage can be a perfect stress buster for you. Massaging your hair with a good hot oil every week ensures that your hair is healthy and there are no more hair strands lying on your floor or brush. Try using coconut and olive oil so as to bring that beautiful glimmer to your hair and help you hair grow.
4. Regular brushing every night
You must have heard that excessive brushing can cause hair fall and physically harm your hair. Well, not always. It simply depends on the brush your use. Using synthetic bristles can create friction in hair and thus actually damage hair. Instead, using the right brush such as the boar bristle brush can actually increase the blood circulation of the scalp. Make sure that you are combing your hair for at least 50 times before you retire for the night. Brushing the hair makes your roots stronger and hair grow faster.
5. Don’t wrap your wet hairs in towel
Most of us have a habit of wrapping our wet hairs in a towel just after shampooing, little realizing about the drawbacks of this habit. Wet hair is prone to even more hair fall and wrapping them in a towel can make this even worse. Our hairs get rubbed with those massive towel fibers making those strands of hair to fall. Instead, go for a microfiber towel, if you simply can’t resist this habit
