The tricks you need to know to help your hair grow faster and longer

Whether it is that you want your bob or lob to grow out faster or whether you’re just dying for Rapunzel-like long hair, here are a few tips and tricks to make your hair grow longer, faster!
First off, before we get into anything else, let us make clear that diet is key. Diet is very important for hair growth; you need to be eating sufficient levels of iron, B vitamins, zinc and protein. For an easy-win, add the superfood spirulina to your smoothies, it’s a complete protein rich in chlorophyll which helps our hair to grow. You could also binge on greens like kale and iron, this blue-green algae is high in iron (a very important mineral given that the deficiency condition, anaemia, can be a major cause of hair loss).

 Try and avoid clogging your follicles. Dirt, oils and product build-up can clog your follicles, hindering healthy hair growth. To avoid this, try to give your hair a rest from overloading the root area with styling products – dry shampoo and volumising powders are common culprits. Just like you exfoliate your skin, exfoliating your hair is important too. If your scalp is the gateway to healthy hair, it makes sense that exfoliating it helps promote growth. Use an exfoliating shampoo once a week to cleanse and remove excess sebum from follicles – as well as the product build-up mentioned above.
Caffeine has been found to stimulate the hair shaft by blocking the effects of DHT, a chemical known to damage hair follicles. It can speed up hair growth by 25 percent. So up your caffeine intake is possible. Massage your scalp and avoid styling, washing and oiling your hair all too often. Excessive heat-styling, backcombing, brushing and chemically processing the hair can leave it brittle too. Avoid tying your hair too tight Tight elastics, worn repetitively in the same place cause wear and tear on the hair which is not what you want when you’re growing it. Have regular trims and get a helping hand in the form of vitamins and nutrient tablets once in a way.
