Whether you’re trying to grow out a short hairstyle or just want to add a few inches to your already growing hair, the task can be daunting and sometimes futile. For starters, it takes what seems to feel like forever. But what if you want to grow your hair in just one month? Is it possible or just a pipe dream? Well, it is possible with the following tips:

Alter your lifestyle

Getting enough sleep is important for quicker hair growth. So is regular exercise, which improves blood circulation in the body and stimulates growth in hair follicles. But diet is equally as vital. If you follow a balanced diet, this can speed up the growth of your hair. At the same time, not eating well-balanced meals can actually lead to the slowing down of hair growth. It’s also a good idea to snack between meals. Energy to form hair cells drops four hours after eating. To keep energy levels up and follicles happy between meals, snack on a nutrient-dense food.

Invest in supplements

If you embark on a healthy well-balanced diet, you shouldn’t theoretically need supplements. But if you want a helping hand, there are plenty of options out there. Protein supplements are worthwhile as hair is made of a protein called keratin. Anything containing biotin, omegas, and vitamin B is worth looking into too.

Don’t skip conditioner

Many people skip conditioner and it is the worst thing you can do for your hair. Why? Because it refortifies the cuticle with a protective coating, allowing the hair to keep growing and not break easily. You should use a well-balanced shampoo and conditioner for your hair.

Pay attention to your scalp

Keeping your scalp in good shape is super important when trying to grow your hair. Not only is it advisable to use an exfoliating scalp mask once a week to remove dead skin, but it is also a good idea to try massaging your scalp. Either use all of your fingers to touch your scalp and gently pull on the hair. Or dip your fingers into a citrus oil of your choice and tap your scalp in a gentle but quick motion.

Treat your hair nicely

Look after your hair as if it was a living breathing thing because, in effect, it is. Get your hair cut regularly to stop split ends travelling further up each strand of hair and halting growth. Regardless, be gentle in everything you do. That involves not brushing too harshly and avoiding any treatment relating to heat or chemicals. If you can’t give them up completely, try cutting back on how often you use them.
