Can I Make my Hair Grow Faster?

| HairSellon Blog | May 24, 2012

You’re not the first person to want to know the answer to this age old question. For centuries people have created special remedies for hair growth and ‘miracle products’ that will triple the rate of your hair growth! Some have even claimed Mane N’ Tail, which we focused on earlier in our blog, can have this sort of miracle effect!

However, modern science has allowed us to take a more objective approach and deliver a more definitive answer.

Unfortunately, (as some of you might have guessed, others may have found out the hard way!) there is no miracle. The rate at which our hair grows is mainly down to genetics and we can’t do anything about that. Averagely hair grows at around ½ inch per month, so about 6 inches a year; Not exactly hair-raising progress 😉

Despite this, there are several measures that can be taken to maximise your hair growth potential, but first lets clear out a couple of other classic hair growth myths that need dispelling before we start…

Will cutting my hair encourage hair Growth? The short answer is no.
The longer answer is that it may seem that it encourages growth simply because it’s easier to visibly measure growth rate of short hair as oppose to when it’s longer. We do recommend some trimming techniques as stated below.

Do Prenatal Vitamins Help? During pregnancy hair often grows faster. In the past this has been attributed to prenatal vitamins, the truth is that it is the hormone oestrogen that encourages the growth.

Does brushing your hair through help? No. In fact too regular brushing will cause more damage then good.

 

HAIR GROWTH TIPS

A few tips to make sure you’re doing everything you can to maximise the rate at which your hair grows…

  • Although cutting might not encourage growth, you’ll want to get the ends trimmed regularly to remove split ends or any other damage. By the time hair grows past the shoulders it can be several years old and needs treating with care. As a guideline a half inch trim every 6 weeks is a good basis.
  • Avoid perming, colouring, or anything that can damage hair. This includes unnecessary handling, brushing, combing, blow-drying, as well as ironing and curling etc.
  • Hair is often a good indicator of your general wellbeing. Conseqently a good diet, with the right amount of exercise, good sleeping routines and a healthy lifestyle will be reflected in your hair.
  • It is advisable to avoid carbonated drinks and coffee,(understandably this might be a step too far for some! ) and certainly avoid smoking.
  • In coordination with a healthy diet, the right mix of vitamins and minerals will help maximise growth. Vitamins A & B more specifically Beta-Carotine, and Nioxin vitamins are great for promoting hair growth. You can even get Nioxin shampoo. The right amount of protein is paramount, after all, hair is dead protein.

With these pointers you should be well on your way to a healthy head of hair, but please feel free to share your own tips and advice on hair growth in the comments below.
