Encouraging Natural Hair Growth
There are many products on the market that claim to be able to speed up natural hair growth. In general, no one product will encourage fast growth on its own.
The growth of the hair is dependent upon several factors:One is heredity. Some women have faster growing hair than others. If yours grows very slow, there isn’t much you can do to change this inherited trait. There are some things you can do to encourage the growth of the hair. Scalp massage can help encourage natural hair growth. This works by bringing more nourishment to the hair follicles. The follicle receives nourishment from the blood stream. By increasing blood flow to the follicles, you are giving them more nourishment. Consider using essential oils when massaging the scalp. Rosemary and mint expand the blood vessels and can help bring more nourishment to the scalp. A massage is relaxing and soothing as well, so why not give it a try?A healthy diet can also encourage natural hair growth. The health of your body can be seen in your hair. The healthier you are, the healthier your hair will be. Eat foods that promote health and you will see the results in your hair. Vitamins will improve the condition of the hair and encourage growth. Most of these vitamins should come from fresh fruits and vegetables. General nutritional guidelines recommend eating at least five servings a day. To promote healthy hair, you should eat a few more servings. Drink plenty of water. This will flush impurities from your body. Water also brings moisture to your body and your hair. You should drink at least eight glasses a day to hydrate your body well. These servings should be plain water. Soda, coffee and juice should not be counted as servings of water.
Taking good care of your hair will promote growth and prevent breakage.
The hard work you put in to encouraging growth can be undone by poor hair care. Excessive brushing, heat and chemicals damage the hair and cause breakage. Be sure to give your hair enough moisture. Conditioning products can help retain moisture. Spritzing the hair with water every day will help bring moisture to the hair and follicles. By taking the time to care for your hair and body properly, you can encourage the natural growth.
