For those of us who haven’t been blessed with thick, amazing locks of hair, the question of how to make your hair grow faster naturally is quite important. A thick, glorious mane of hair has always been a crowning asset to both men and women throughout the ages. If that wasn’t the case, there would be no need for beauticians and hair salons, not to mention the thousands of brands of hair care products that promise a healthy, envious head of beautiful hair.
So what can you do to make your hair grow faster naturally? And, what are easy tips to make your hair grow faster?
First of all, did you realize that your hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month? What determines how fast your hair grows? Your parents. How fast your hair grows has already been pre-determined for you, so there is nothing you can do about this. Sorry. But, does this mean that you are doomed to a life of short, unhealthy hair? Thankfully, no. By changing some of your everyday habits, you can see a significant improvement in your hair’s length and health. What are some of these habits?
1. YOUR HAIR’S CONDITION REFLECTS WHAT IS GOING ON INSIDE.
Certain medications, some illnesses (anemia), changes in hormone levels, stress, and even different times of the year can affect the condition of your hair. Some of these cannot be helped, but if you are smoking or overly stressed, this is a good time to fix the situation. Seek help if needed so that your body can operate at its best capacity.
2. TREAT YOUR BODY GOOD AND YOUR HAIR WILL RESPOND BEAUTIFULLY
If you eat a good diet and exercise, not only will your hair respond, but your skin will too. Foods that are good for your hair include beans, fish, cheese, nuts and leafy green vegetables. A good vitamin may also help to supplement your diet. And drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. A hydrated body works more efficiently, and this affects the health of your hair, too.
You all know I am a honey fanatic, so you’ve probably realized that honey will come into this discussion in one way or another Okay, many people have asked me, “Does honey make your hair grow?” As I mentioned at the beginning, your hair growth is determined by genetics. So, honey does not make your hair grow, per se. BUT, honey has vitamins and minerals, important things for hair health.
It also acts as a humectant by pulling water out of the air, so the use of honey on the hair and scalp has seen marvelous results in helping the hair to become glowing and healthy. Please read my article, Is Honey Good For Your Hair, and I’m sure you will be excited about what honey can do for you.
