Easy And Natural Ways To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Easy And Natural Ways To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Do you dream of long, flowing, healthy hair? Lots of women wish that they had locks like Rapunzel, but sometimes it can seem like your hair isn’t even growing. If you are frustrated by slow hair growth, check out 12 simple and natural ways to help you to grow hair faster.

Hair habits that help you to grow hair faster

1. Avoid using heat on your hair

Using heat on your hair is very damaging. If you don’t think you can give up your straighteners or hairdryer, consider cutting down and always use a heat protection spray.

2. Trim your hair regularly

If you want long hair, you may want a trim. It may sound counter-intuitive, but if you leave split ends they work their way up your hair, meaning more hair needs to be cut off eventually. Try cutting off an eighth of an inch every two to three months for long, healthy hair.

3. Switch up your hairstyles

If you want to grow hair faster, it may be time to mix up your look. Avoid tying your hair in the same place every day as it will damage your hair in the long-term. If you keep moving your pony around the hair will remain strong and free from split ends.

4. Always condition your hair

Conditioner helps to replace the lipids and proteins inside the hair shaft, preventing future damage so your hair can grow long and healthy.

5. Rinse your hair with cold water after you have washed it

Give your hair a quick blast of cold water before you get out of the shower to help prevent moisture loss and snags in your hair. It only takes a few seconds to do, but over time you will notice a big difference in your hair.

6. Brush from the bottom of your hair

Brushing your hair can either help it or harm it. If you start from the top the little tangles are more likely to form one big tangle, damaging a large amount of hair. Instead brush from the bottom up to the top, carefully working on tangled parts.

    7. Don’t wrap your hair up in a towel

    When you wrap your hair up in a towel, it can be damaged by the tiny towel fibers that it becomes caught in. Most women also tie the towel too tight around their head, which can break the more fragile strands of hair around your face.

    8. Massage your scalp

    Healthy hair normally starts with a healthy scalp. Think of your hair as a root that grows out of the ground; if the ground isn’t healthy, the root will not grow properly. Try massaging your scalp while you are in the shower to encourage blood flow and hair growth.

      Products you can use to help you grow hair faster

      9. Buy a silk pillowcase

      If you want to grow hair faster you may want to buy a new pillowcase. Cotton pillow cases can fray your hair, but silk or satin pillows are much less damaging as they have a softer surface.

      10. Eat the right foods

      Healthy hair starts inside the body; eating a diet that is rich in vitamins and proteins will help to make sure your hair is healthy. Include foods high in zinc, iron and vitamins A, B, C and E. These foods are great for hair growth: milk, cheese, eggs, chicken, whole grains, salmon, avocado, spinach, broccoli and cabbage.

      11. Use a weekly hair mask

      Hair past your shoulders is likely a few years old, so it needs more love than your roots. You can make great hair masks at home that help to moisture your hair; try mixing a cup of coconut oil with teaspoons of jojoba oil and almond oil for a hydrating hair mask.

        12. Take hair supplements

        Adding supplements to a healthy diet will really help with hair growth. Some of the most effective supplements for hair growth are biotin, folic acid, fish oil, kelp and flaxseed oil – try a few out to find out which works best for you. Good luck!

        6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

        6 Signs It’s Time to Change Your Life

        Is it time to make some changes in your life? It just might be. Life is too short to not live it to the fullest.

        Here are some signs it’s time to change your life.

        1. Every week, you cannot wait for Friday.

          Fridays are fun, but one thing I’ve discovered in my quest to find and do work I absolutely love is that almost every day can be really fun. If you’re saving all your living for the weekends, it’s time to truly think about your lifestyle and consider making some changes. Don’t get me wrong; it’s great to have plans you look forward to on the weekends, but what if you could have that excited Friday feeling most, if not all, days of the week? It takes a lot of self-discovery and work, but it’s truly possible to live a life you love—even on Mondays.

          2. You live for your vacations.

          Vacations are great, but what’s even better is building a life you don’t need to take a vacation from. As Seth Godin said, “Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” Vacations are fun and exciting, but even better is building a life where you have the potential to do what lights you up many weeks of the year, not just your two allotted vacation weeks.

          3. When you stop and think about it, you’re really not focusing your life on your priorities.

          Write down your 3 top priorities. Then write down the 3 things you focus most of your life on. Are you spending your time living your top priorities? Consistently spending time doing what matters most to you is one of the keys to feeling fulfilled in your life. If you’re not focusing your life on what’s important to you, it’s time to make some changes.

          4. You have no idea what lights you up, and you don’t have the space in your life to discover it.

          If you haven’t found your passion in your current life, you’re not going to find it if you continue to do your same routine, over and over, year after year. In order to discover what lights you up, start by creating the space in your life to seek it. Give yourself time to figure out who you are, what your strengths are, and what picques your interest. Experiment with learning new things, spending time with inspiring people, and doing more of what excites you and less of the things that suck your energy.

          5. You’re frequently jealous.

          If you find yourself frequently feeling jealous of someone, there are 3 changes to consider making:

          1. Make a point to focus on your path instead of his or her journey. Sometimes this involves taking a break from social media.
          2. Get inspired from the person you’re jealous of, and work toward a similar goal in your life.
          3. Decide what the other person has is not something you are willing to put in the effort to achieve, so you’ll cheer him or her on but choose to not be jealous.

          When you are feeling jealous, consider why you want what the other person has, and what your motives are. Living a life on your terms, focused on your priorities, passions, and strengths, will provide you with much more fulfillment than trying to be somebody else.

          6. You can’t remember the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone.

          According to Neale Donald Walsch, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” Your life can become even more amazing if you stretch beyond your comfort zone. If you’re not sure where to start, try the tips in this article about small ways to step out of your comfort zone.

          Life is too short to spend your years not living to your full potential. If you decide you’re ready to change your life, I encourage you to start taking small action steps toward the life you want to live. Keep moving forward.
