In average hair grows from one to two centimeters every month. Here are some tips on how to speed up the process twice or even three times?
The main building block and an accelerator for the growth of hair cells is protein. Add eggs, fish, dairy and meat products in your daily diet. Especially add omega-3, 6 and 9. Their most accessible source of them is oil: olive and flaxseed. Add it in green salads or, closing your eyes, drink a spoonful a day. Get “growth promoters” – vitamins A and E. For example, carrots, cabbage and beets. Good news: our hair passionately loves zinc, and in addition to pumpkin seed and beef, a decent amount of it is contained in chocolate. A nice justification of favorite sweets. Very importantly, you need to drink the right amount of liquid – at least 1.5 liters. The impatient ones can add vitamin supplements for hair growth to the diet.
Do not buy shampoo exclusively following the recommendations of your friend, screaming with happiness, shaking her thick braid and the cherished bottle in front of you. She gets a wow-effect and you may get another headache. Always rely on the type of your scalp. In order not to make the hair heavier, prefer shampoo without paraben and silicone in the composition, actually of organic production. Conditioners, balms and masks prevent strands from damage; oil strengthens them. Every 4-6 months, you can use special shampoos or capsules for hair growth. In addition, as a bonus, buy a professional toner or serum.
Legendary Homemade Mask
How to grow hair quickly without going out of the apartment? The most famous homemade mask to accelerate growth is the “burning” mustard seed mask, which increases blood circulation. Take 2 tablespoons of mustard, 1 egg yolk, a teaspoon of honey, add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil and a bit of hot water, mix everything in a uniform mass. Apply the mask only on the scalp; put a shower cap and a towelon top. Hold for 15-30 minutes, as long as you can bare, rinse and leave to dry without a dryer. The procedure works with regular use! No less popular masks of oil in a water bath are best applied before going to bed for the night, wrapping your hair in cellophane wrap. The effect will be visible, if you repeat the procedure a couple of times a week.
Cut the ends of your hair as often as every 3 months to keep them healthy. Pre-check the lunar calendar. In the waning moon, the locks will grow negligibly slow. Always get your haircut on the growing moon (particularly effective are the 3rd and 4th day), which controls not only the ebb and flow of the world’s oceans, but also all growing things on the earth, including our hair. You’ll see, the non-stop questioning in social networks like: “How to grow hair like yours in the photo?!” will not not keep you waiting.
To improve the condition of hair and increase the speed of hair growth, beauty salons offer all kinds of techniques. From firming treatment with laminaria leaves and shiitake mushrooms in combination with massage with herbal bags, improving microcirculation, to quite painful, but the most effective mesotherapy – injections into the scalp, based on tailor-made cocktail of vitamins and minerals. With their help hair loss decreases and stops,and hair growth begins. In the procedure, there is a substantial list of contraindications, which you should consult before going breaking bad. In the arsenal of salons, there is also “shock” darsonvalization (stimulation of the bulbs with light electric shocks), termosaunas (prevention of hair loss), creatine recovery, ozone therapy (treatment with ozone) and various spa treatments.

A minute later – a centimeter from the previous one, and so the whole area of the head, alternating right and left side. The most enjoyable way is massage with light, circular movements with fingertips, from points behind the ears and base of the neck upwards. Especially good is to ask someone to massage you before going to bed. Few people know that with age, the collagen in the scalp stagnates;to “shake it up”, try to daily “knead the scalp”, in other words – to move the scalp back and forthwith an effort, having your head in the hands at temples.
