It’s the question on everyone’s lips; ‘How to make hair grow faster?’ Strong, healthy hair is the secret to fast hair growth, so if you’re dreaming of long, Rapunzel-esque tresses then look no further. The Grow Gorgeous gurus are on hand with their expert hair growth tips to help you get the gorgeous, healthy locks you’ve been dreaming about.
We know you want long hair and you want it NOW. But gorgeous, long and, most importantly, healthy hair does not grow overnight- you’ll have to be committed, patient and follow our hair growth tips religiously. This means no getting bored and chopping your hair off or having a drastic color change whilst trying to grow your hair out. On average, hair grows at the rate of around ½ an inch per month or 6 inches a year, so follow our how to make your hair grow faster below and you could see yourself well above average.
Keep split ends at bay
Regular trims may seem counteractive when you’re trying to grow your hair, but braving the chop every 8-10 weeks will help to keep split ends at bay and keep your hair looking super healthy, meaning less hair breakage and more hair growth! Applying the Grow Gorgeous End Split Ends serum to your ends will nourish and repair them to seal broken fibres and strengthen hair, ensuring that your locks have the best chance of growing long and strong.
Condition, condition, condition
Keeping your hair in tip-top condition is the most important of our hair growth tips. Conditioner helps to replace the proteins in the hair shaft making hair stronger and healthier. Make sure you condition your hair every time you wash it and treat yourself to an intense hair masque such as the Grow Gorgeous Overnight to Gorgeous masque once a week. We’d also recommend using the Strengthening Oil, infused with Chia Seed Oil and Beet extract, it helps to help protect, strengthen and restore shine back into your locks to keep your hair strong, moisturized and growing!
Ditch the shampoo
Shampooing your hair every day can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving you with dry hair that’s prone to breakage and split ends – which is not ideal when you’re trying to grow your hair!
If you just can’t give up your daily hair wash, opt for the Grow Gorgeous 11-in-1 Cleansing Conditioner, the conditioning formula is gentle enough for daily use as it won’t strip your hair of those essential natural oils, leaving your hair looking smooth, shiny and super healthy.
You are what you eat
If you’re not healthy on the inside, you can’t expect to look healthy on the outside, can you? Healthy hair begins on your plate and if you’re lacking in nutrients, your hair will not be optimised for growth. But which nutrients should you be on the lookout for when you’re trying to grow your hair?
- Iron – maintains a rich blood supply, thus, supplying the hair follicle with adequate nutrition.
- Vitamin C– Helps the body to absorb and metabolise Iron and enhances the production of collagen which strengthens the hair shaft.
- Vitamin E – Strengthens and protects the hair shaft
- Vitamin B12 – Promotes hair growth and reduces hair loss.
- Protein– Protein is essential for growth and repair within the body, the perfect nutrient to enhance hair growth!
- Omega-3 – Helps to keep the scalp hydrated and in optimum condition for hair growth.
- Biotin – Helps to produce amino acids- contributing to the production of healthy hair
So next time you’re feeling hungry, ditch the sugary sweets and opt for a handful of Nuts, Chia Seeds, or an Acai smoothie for a hair-loving snack- your hair will LOVE you for it.
Schedule in a massage
One of our best hair growth tips is to treat your hair like a plant; if the roots are healthy, then the plant will grow. Massaging your scalp increases blood flow, speeding up the delivery of nutrients to stimulate your follicles, resulting in super-speedy hair growth.
We’d recommend using the Grow Gorgeous Hair Growth Serum to massage your scalp. Simply apply 20 drops of the serum to your scalp and massage to increase blood flow and the absorption rate of the serum, meaning that you could see a difference to your hair in just 8 days!
