But it takes the time to get your hair that long shaggy hippy look. On average, a hair typically grows an only quarter of an inch to half an inch maximum in a month. This too, if the hair is in the most optimal health with minimal split ends and is free from other damages. Here, we have some tips thrown in to help you achieve that healthy hair so they could grow faster.
Come, Hop on the wagon!
Less Shampooing – Lesser Breakouts:
Giving your hair that regular shock with the shampoo each day can dry up your scalp resulting in more split ends. So, most hair stylists are usually the biggest offenders of washing the hair extensively. With the shampoo, you intend to wash off the dirt of any product build-up inside your hair, but with that, the shampoo also strips away the essential natural oils from your hair that are good for their health. Wiping off the oils results in more breakage, leaving the hair drier as a result. You must skip a wash every once in a while of course if you don’t live in a very humid climate, or you don’t sweat a lot.
Trim The Deadlocks Regularly:
Your intuition might give you hush, as you think trimming would help the hair growth. But, it’s true! Trimming might make your hair a little bit shorter for a while, but they boost growth. Just as you trim away those deadlocks (split ends) as with the time, they work their way up the strands and eventually make your hair weaker. You should trim them up looking at the length of the split ends; just the eighth part of an inch is usually what most hair stylists recommend. You can trim more depending upon how much of the damaged ends there are. Trimming time to time would let them grow healthier in the longer term.
Never Skip The Conditioner:
It’s unimaginable how ladies skip conditioning their hair after a hair wash. It looks like they don’t love their hair at all. No? We don’t claim here that conditioning your hair more would help them grow faster, rather, conditioning them regularly would help them stay soft and healthy.
Conditioners are meant to replenish the oils inside the hair that are stripped off during the wash, and they give a moisturizing boost to them. For hair that goes through great heating frequently or is died requires extra care and conditioning to keep them moist, soft and healthy looking. It just takes a few seconds to put it on, and the payoff is huge!
Feed Them With Essential Oils:
Who can ever deny the goodness of oiling the hair regularly? From preventing the hair from dryness to nourishing them for growth and guarding them against getting unanimously gray oils do us so many favors.
Just think of the torture we give to our hair every day, from straightening them up to curling, blow drying, hair dying and bleaching even. They are a rejuvenating agent, as they build up moisture, reduce dandruff, make the hair stronger and brighter. Almond oil contains Vitamin A, B, and E that are good for skin and because it’s enriched with magnesium, it promotes healthy hair growth.

Try Some Aloe Vera Gel:

Just take some pure Aloe Vera gel and mix it with some coconut milk and lemon essence. Mix them well and apply on your hair evenly. Leave it for almost 20 minutes and then rinse with fresh water.

Seek Medical Help:

You cannot grow hair with all these remedies if they have problems medically. Problems like dandruff, thyroid issues, hormonal imbalance or any other infection would hinder the process of hair growth and might result in extensive hair loss.
