In this article, I have added some tips to make your hair grow faster. No, you aren’t becoming Rapunzel overnight but these tips will surely help you in speeding up the process.

Begin with your scalp
Yes, you read it right! The way to the long healthy hair begins with the healthy scalp. Scalp to the hair is just like a root to the tree, it is impossible to grow a healthy tree if roots are not strong, similarly, healthy scalp leads to the healthy hair.
- Apply the oil (preferably coconut oil or castor oil) to your scalp and gently rub for five minutes.
Plan a diet that boosts your hair growth. A proper diet plan is a key factor to live a healthy life. Plan a diet enriched in Protein, Vitamins, and Minerals, that will help you in getting a healthy body, thus, healthy hair.
A well-planned diet will ensure that your body is getting all the necessary nutrition that will help in making your hair grow faster, smoother, and shinier.
“To promote hair growth, you need to feed the hair from the inside, try increasing your protein intake with foods like fish, beans, nuts, and whole grains,” says Dr. Francesco Fusco, a well-known dermatologist.
Get a trim
You might wonder how trimming the hair short will make your hair grow faster and longer, but, this is a truth that many don’t believe. You need to get a frequent hair trim every now and then whenever you notice unhealthy hair tips or split ends.
“While haircuts don’t make your hair grow any faster, they get rid of split ends that break your hair,” explains Michael Dueñas, a famous celebrity hairstylist. “Eliminating the breakage gives the appearance that your hair is growing faster.”
Avoid the daily shampoo
Shampooing your hair more than three times a week make your hair weaker, lighter, and drier. Skip washing your hair daily rather wash them after one to two days to let your natural oil keep your hair moist. Natural essential oil makes your hair to grow faster naturally.
“Shampooing your hair two to three times a week allows your natural oils to penetrate your hair, allowing it to hydrate and repair itself,” says Ken Paves.
- Massage the hair properly with the shampoo for 4-5 minutes as it improves the blood flow to the scalp.
- Gently comb the hair and avoid brushing to keep your hair from breakage.
Grab a silk pillowcase
“Silk is easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage,” says Jesleen Ahluwalia.
Isn’t it the easiest tip ever to make your hair grow faster and better. You should know, the lesser the trouble with your hair the better the growth.
Make it a habit to drink 1.5 Litre water a day. A sufficient amount of water is not only good for your hair but for your entire body. It helps in flushing out the toxins and thus helps in your body to stay fit and healthy. A healthy body incorporates healthy hair, so, make sure to stay hydrated.

Skip the dryer and other heat-styling tools
Although, tools like the dryer, straightener, and curler, help in styling your hair beautifully. But, I am pretty sure if you will know that these tools are mostly toxic to your hair health you would love to avoid them for a short-term pleasure as well.
“Stop over-styling your hair if you must use heat, warns Paves.
These tools make your hair look pretty for a while but results in the severe damage, and breakage of your hair, making them frizzy and dull.
If you really want to make your hair grow faster and healthier then skip using these tools now.
