Most people’s hair grows about 1/2 inch per month, or six inches per year. Since you’re reading this you probably want it to grow more and faster.
Truthfully there is only so much you can do, ultimately it’s up to genetics. But here’s a few things that will help.
We already talked about healthy hair and avoiding damage. Damage leads to breakage and breakage leads to shortage. So to promote overall hair length the best thing you can do is keep it healthy.
Massage Your Scalp
Massaging increases blood circulation to your scalp, and circulation brings nutrients that help your hair grow. Also a great opportunity to get your girl involved.
Get the right nutrition
Not to get too scientific, but hair is made of keratin, which is made of proteins, which is made of amino acids. So eat foods that help your body make amino acids: vitamin B, iron, protein and omega-3s.
Your overall health affects your hair growth.
“I keep my body in peak physical shape during the week, so I can destroy it with drugs and alcohol on the weekend,” is not the answer.
Proper nutrition, regular exercise, good sleep, not too much stress, and just an overall healthy lifestyle is all you can really do to help your hair grow faster.
Healthy body, healthy mind, healthy hair.
