Tips for faster hair growth

Faster Hair Growth

So you’re eating a good diet and exercising regularly but your hair is still only growing 1cm a month? Try incorporating the following methods into your routine, and you may experience an increase in your hair’s natural growth rate.

1) Rosemary scalp massage: You should massage your scalp at least once weekly, it’s relaxing and eases tension as well as increasing the blood flow to your hair’s follicles. I usually include the essential oil of Rosemary in my scalp massages – it has a strong scent similar to that of eucalyptus oil – as it really makes my scalp feel alive, as though I can actually feel the hair growing. You can leave it in overnight if you want, or shampoo it out, it’ll leave your hair scented and shiny.

2) Biotin supplements: These can be bought online, or in large pharmacies. Also known as Vitamin H, Biotin is a favourite among women wanting to grow their hair long as fast as possible, as many have seen results within a month of taking it. Personally I take Hair Formula 37, which has a Biotin component, and I’ve seen excellent results from that too.

3) Antioxidants: Drinking cranberry juice and green tea will boost your body’s immune system, keep your eyes and hair shiny, and it keeps your skin clear as well. Detoxifying your body is important for overall health, but in my experience it has also boosted my hair’s growth rate. Since I began having green tea after every meal and drinking cranberry juice every day, both my hair and nails began growing faster, probably from the detox I was giving my body.

The main objective in increasing your hair’s natural growth rate is staying as healthy as possible. If you can do that, whilst including a weekly scalp massage, daily Biotin supplements, and antioxidants in your diet, you should see an increase in your hair’s growth rate within a month of beginning your new routine.

Long Hair Maintain tips


If your hair is longer than hip length, then you are officially a part of the tiny percentage of women with super long hair. First of all, congratulations – it is quite a feat to resist hair cutting for so many years, and you will undoubtedly be the envy of some of your friends and acquaintances (though most will not admit it). Super-long hair will turn heads wherever you go – it really is a thing of beauty and will make you stand out from your short-haired and medium-length counterparts.


Once your hair becomes super long, however, you’ll find that basic hairstyling techniques will, much of the time, no longer apply. You will need advice that is specifically targeted to your hair type and length.I wish I could give you this advice myself, but I can’t – my hair has only been waist-length at its longest (though I hope one day to surpass that). I can, however, point you in the right direction: The Long Hair Community.

Made up of thousands of women around the world who either have long hair or are dedicated to having it in the future, The Long Hair Community features articles, tips, forums and photo galleries of women with extra long hair, some of whom have grown theirs floor length and beyond. Some members are definitely bordering on hair obsessed, but this is a good thing for you – it means they know what they’re talking about when it comes to taking care of really long hair.

Tips for preventing split ends

If you’re growing your hair long, the last thing you want is split ends, as they will eventually break off and can damage the rest of the hair shaft. Follow these tips to keep your hair in good condition and keep split ends to a minimum.

1) Tie your hair back if you’re boating, riding a motorbike, driving a convertible and so on. This will minimize tangles – the major cause of split ends.

2) Take extra care when detangling your hair. Use a wide-toothed comb and gently detangle from the ends, up to the roots. Never yank a brush through the length of your hair, as this will damage it. Don’t rush either – take your time and be as gentle as you can.

3) Use a weekly deep conditioner. This will keep your hair in optimum condition and will reduce the number of split ends you get.

4) Go on a search and destroy mission. Give your ends a close inspection, and cut off any splits or bends. Doing this will mean fewer trims, which is what you want if you’re growing it.

5) Get a cut every six months. Some women can go longer between trims – it all depends on hair type – but most will need to see the hairdresser twice a year. This allows your hair to grow, while keeping the ends neat. Trimming more often isn’t necessary, especially if you’re doing the occasional search and destroy.

6) Use salon-quality shampoo and conditioner. Generally, when it comes to hair products, you get what you pay for. Investing in quality products will keep you away from the hairdresser for longer.

Growing your hair long in ten simple steps

So you’ve decided that you want to grow your hair long. Good for you – I once read somewhere, and agree wholeheartedly, that long hair is one of the nicest things you can do for yourself. You’ll need a lot of patience to get there, and this is part of the reason why long hair is so highly prized.

1) Have a goal length. At the beginning of every journey you must have a goal, and growing your hair long is no different. Decide whether you want your hair to be bra-strap length, waist-length or longer. Imagine what you will look like with hair that length. Make that image your focus, and choose to think about it during times of ‘hair boredom’ (and yes, these will arise). Make a solemn vow to yourself that you will reach that goal.

2) Assess your hair’s damage. This step is by far the hardest as it is now that you may have to cut your hair shorter in order to grow it longer. Check out your hair’s ends; are they split? If so you’ll need to have a trim because split ends weaken the hair’s shaft and can ultimately cause splits in the surrounding hairs, meaning that your hair is slowly but surely getting shorter. Tell your hairdresser that your eventual goal is to grow it long, and she’ll (hopefully) cut it in a way that looks good growing out.

3) Take a look at your diet. Are you eating enough fish, eggs, red meat and leafy green vegetables? Protein-rich foods such as these are necessary to get your hair looking, and growing, at its best. As hair is essentially dead protein, a diet rich in protein will boost its natural growth rate. The healthier your body is on the inside, the better your hair will look.

4) Vow to exercise more. Increasing the oxygen in your blood circulating around your body will also increase your hair’s growth, as it is providing an extra boost of oxygen to your hair’s follicles. Exercising at least three times a week allows for healthy, shiny hair, in much the same way as a good diet does.

5) Check the Internet for inspiration. Sometimes you’ll feel bored or impatient with your hair’s speed of growth, and looking at pictures of long hair that appeal to you will serve as a reminder for you not to succumb to the scissors. Keep pictures of long-haired models from magazines too.

6) Give yourself regular scalp massages. Aside from being relaxing, they stimulate the hair’s follicles and make your scalp feel ‘alive’. Various long hair sites on the Internet

7) Up your vitamin intake. While you don’t need to invest in expensive ‘hair vitamins’, you can get some added growth through taking Biotin, Zinc or Omega 3 tablets. A multivitamin every day works just as well.

8) Take good care of your hair. Internet ‘hair experts’ say you should treat your hair as though it were a fine piece of old lace – i.e. with the utmost care. Be gentle while you wash it and never brush your hair when it is wet, as hair is at its most fragile when wet. Use quality combs and hairbrushes, and if a ponytail holder comes out of your hair with more than three hairs attached to it, throw it away. And one last thing: never use rubber bands to tie back your hair!

9) Be patient. Remember that long hair is a commitment to yourself, and you’re not getting it cut because you are determined to one day be a long-haired beauty. Although regular girls (i.e. not celebrities) are starting to use hair extensions, keep in mind how expensive they are and how tacky the cheaper ones look. When you one day have the long hair you now desire, you’ll feel extra confident in knowing that it’s all yours.

10) And finally, the most important step – don’t cut it! It may seem obvious, but after your initial trim you’ll need to stay away from the hairdresser for a while. Magazines will tell you that you need a trim every six weeks, but going this often will only stunt your hair’s growth, as you’ll be cutting it as fast as it grows. Keep trims to once or twice a year, and take good care of your hair, and you’ll have a long, flowing mane in a few years’ time.
