Natural Hair Growth Tips

So, instead of replying individually to each query, I am sharing my best hair growth tips that will help you achieve the long and healthy hair that you have always desired in this post.

Hot Oil Treatment
I know I say this all the time, but that’s only because it works. Hot oil treatments help in improving the blood circulation which in turn triggers your hair growth. The best way to do this is by choosing the oil that works best for your hair type and then heating the oil to enhance its nutrients. Now apply this oil by slowly massaging it into your scalp. Then cover it with a plastic bag or shower cap.
Using Grapeseed oil for my hot oil treatments have worked wonders for my hair. It not only made my hair grow faster but increased my hair volume too. My favorite grapeseed oils are by Soulflower and Allin Exporters.
After you apply the oil, sit on a chair or sofa and flip your hair upside down. Now slowly massage the oil for a minute or two. You might feel a bit dizzy but that’s because your blood starts rushing through your head. Do this for 5 minutes per day for a week. Trust me, it works.
*Don’t do inversion method daily, just for a week every month. Otherwise, your body gets used to the extra blood flow to your head and it will stop giving you desired results.
Wash Your Hair The Right Way
Use cold water to wash your hair and limit washing your hair to 2 or 3 times a week. This is because hot water and over washing strips off natural oils from your scalp. Remember to wash your scalp with shampoo and then rinse it off with water. So while you rinse it off, the shampoo flows through your hair cleaning them out. This won’t dry your hair out and you won’t end up cutting the ends while you are aiming for long hair.
Use a mild shampoo preferably the one with Rosemary Extracts. Also make sure you are using a shampoo that is free of harsh chemicals like sulfates, parabens, and others, especially if you want to grow your hair faster. Some of my favorite shampoos are Biodegradable shampoo by Rustic Art, Johnsons Baby Shampoo, Iha Biospume Shampoo, Iles Formula and Sunsilk Long and Strong Shampoo with Biotin Extracts.(Sunsilk does contain SLS but this variant also contains biotin which helps in growing your hair faster. You can read my complete experience using this shampoo here.)
If you end up cutting your hair because your ends were too dry, then this is the tip for you. Always apply a dime-sized conditioner to your hair ends, rinse it off and then shampoo as usual. This will prevent your ends from drying up.
Also, never ever wrap your hair while they are wet. I know we all are sometimes guilty of doing it. But this damages your hair really bad. And as you know, damaged hair does not grow fast enough. Also, make sure you are using a soft t-shirt to dry your hair. Normal towels damage your hair shafts real badly.
Use a Silicone-Free Conditioner
Using a conditioner that contains silicones causes a layer of build up on your scalp. This does not let your hair and scalp freely absorb the benefits of the oil or basically any other hair masks or anything else. If you are trying to grow your hair quicker, then opt for conditioners that contain natural oil extracts like argan oil, olive oil, tea tree oil and others. My favorite conditioners are

Ditch the Regular Hair Serum and Start Using Argan Oil Instead
This has proved to be one of the best things that actually worked for me. Every time I wash my hair, I use argan oil on my damp hair. This will make your hair softer and smoother and trust me it won’t weigh your hair down at all. Argan oil gets absorbed into your hair real quickly leaving absolutely no traces. I use this or this one.
Argan oil not only moisturizes and strengthens your hair from inside but also protects them from damage.
Use Wide Tooth Comb Preferably Wooden On
Wide tooth comb helps in detangling without losing a lot of hair strands. Plus if you use a wooden comb, it helps in better blood circulation which in turn triggers hair growth. I am currently using this one and have seen a significant growth.
Switch to Silk Pillow Covers
Using cotton pillow case weakens your hair follicles. This is because they strip away all the natural oil from your scalp and hair leaving it dry and damaged. That is why opt for silk pillow covers or silk scarf to protect your hair.
Include Protein, Natural Biotin and Spicy Food in Your Daily Diet
Yes, you heard that right. Eating spicy food has now one benefit to your hair. The spicy food contains capsaicin that actually makes peppers hot. This, in turn, helps in promoting your hair growth.
Try eating Lettuce, Tomato, and Carrots in your daily diet. These are rich in natural biotin and have proved to grow hair faster. I usually extract their juice or make a smoothie and have it for breakfast.
Drinking lot of water will help in flushing off toxins from your body. Your hair starts becoming healthy inside out. This is a must while you want to grow your hair faster. Make sure you drink at least 30 glasses of water each day. The more the merrier.
Click the Before and After Pictures of your hair
Clicking pictures of before and after of you hair, while you walk this hair growth journey is really important. Usually, we don’t see the difference but these pictures do help in making the results visibly clear.
