Some changes in our daily routine can help the hair grow faster. Sometimes, its external force like that of applying oil treatment, brushing, washing, cutting the hair. And, sometimes, hair growth is promoted internally that is eating good food or taking medicine that changes stimulate the body to make it perfect for smooth hair growth. Here are some fantastic tips for making your hair grow faster:
#1. Choose the Right Products
When using shampoos and conditioners use those that fit your hair type. Do not go for a shampoo and conditioner just because it is cheap. Example: 1) If you have thick hair, use a shampoo specifically for your hair and a detangling conditioner. 2) If you have dry hair, find a shampoo that will replenish your hair, not a shampoo on sale for oily hair.
#2. Brush the Hair When It’s Dry
Only brush your hair when it is dry. Do not brush your hair when you get out of the shower as your hair can break easily when wet. You may use a wide-toothed comb or your fingertips if your hair is wet to detangle your hair. Your best bet is to brush your hair before shampooing and conditioning your hair. This will also loosen up your hair that is about to fall out and save you from having a clogged shower drain.
#3. Trim the Split Ends
Get a haircut if your ends are damaged and split. Your hair will only continue to break off if it is already damaged. Your hair will look and feel healthy instead of out of control and scraggly. Ask your hairdresser to trim your hair to get all of the damage off.
#4. Eat a Balanced Diet
Eat well. Protein is the key ingredient that forms better hair. Hair grows better and healthier when you take care of yourself. Eat foods from all of the basic food groups. So eating a balanced diet is a must.
#5. Take External Vitamins
Take a multivitamin for maximum health to you and your hair. Biotin, Vitamin E etc. are very effective for hair growth. If the food you take can’t provide you with the necessary vitamins, you can take help from the external sources.
#6. Scalp Exercise
Your hair will grow faster if your scalp is stimulated. You can achieve this by rubbing your fingertips gently on your scalp for five minutes per day. Or you may keep up with your cardio exercises to help the growth of your hair.
#7. Avoid Frequent Washing
To make your hair grow faster limit your hair washings. The essential oils in your scalp keep your hair healthy. Dry hair washes one to two times a week; normal hair two to four times per week; curly hair and wavy dry hair once per week or once per two weeks; and oily hair it may be necessary to wash every day. Use your own judgment on your oily hair if you think it has to be washed every day.
#8. Apply Oil/Conditioners
Hot oil treatments and conditioners you leave in are beneficial to your hair growth. Natural oils are the most effective and side-effect free. So, try to use natural oils instead of complex chemicals.
#9. Use Bands that Are Made for Hair
If you are a man with long hair and wear ponytails, only use bands made for hair. Do not use rubber bands as they come off of your hair rough and tend to break off your hair.
#10. Watch out The Pillow Cases
Do not use flannel pillowcases. Flannel tends to suck the oils out of your scalp and hair causing it to become drier, especially in winter months. You can try pillowcases which are made of silk or satin.

It is better to use a diffuser versus a blow dryer for the health of your hair. Blow dryer damage the hair strands to a great degree. Avoid blow dryer as much as possible.

#13. Apply Onion Juice
Onion juice is one of the greatest hair remedies for a fast hair growth. But, the smell is super bad. That’s why many experts don’t suggest this juice.

Don’t put your hair randomly anywhere on the bed when you are sleeping. Tie and place the hair carefully so that you are not creating any damage to the hair when you are sleeping.
#15. Castor Oil Can Help the Hair Grow
Using castor oil to increase hair growth is an old custom. You can also get the magical castor oil into action.
#16. Protect Your Hair from Heat
Heat makes the hair become frayed. Protect the hair strands from heat to get better hair.

Some people have a tendency to tie the hair as tight as possible. Never ever do that. Tie them gently and loosely.

Apple cider vinegar is an effective way to clean the dirt of hair and promote the hair growth.
#19. Apply Egg White & Aloe vera
Egg white and aloe vera are the best natural pair that can make the hair grow super fast.

If the food is not enough to get necessary nutrients, try taking some supplements.

I find it’s helpful to eat higher protein, generally in the form of meat. My nails grow faster like this too, makes sense, as both are made of proteins.

i understand having the right conditioner and not brushing wet hair…but isn't this overdoing it? giving your head a massage and taking extra vitamins so that your stronger for your hair? I mean if your hair is really weak because your body doesn't have enough nutrients shouldn't u take them just cuz ur body doesn't have enough nutrients, i wouldnt get extra vitamins just for my hair. thats crazy, im just a casual guy.

I cut my hair at the end of march, mind you it was all the way down to my rear end. Man i miss it and I want it back but so far it has only reached the begining of my shoulders:( Is there anything that I can do to help it at least grow a little faster…
I think that those tips are really the best for hair. Also it is not good to add a lot of styling stuff to hair and if you do, wash it out properly and don't go to bed until you wash it off.
My hair is too short how long until I get longish hair again?
I read that just taking a multivitamin for your health is good, Biotin is a good mineral/vitamin that helps hair grow thick and fast. Check out some sites about biotin and hair, google or yahoo it. Another helpful hint a female friend of mind gave me. She said after she shampoo's her hair she applies conditioner and just leaves it in. Thats all even if it's not a leave in conditioner. She told me that it keeps the hair shaft flat and you can comb it and air dry and in 4 months her hair has grown 5 inches, she's african american and her hair is thicker and dryer.
i think thick hair grows faster but i hate getting it thinned out is that even good for my hair anyways?

How can i grow my hair faster in a week? Im 12 by the way.
I have a shower every other day, I have kinda oily hair when not washed after about two days or so, and my hair grows quite fast, about 1 month and it goes up to my eyes from having short hair just about as far as the tip of my forehead.
Here you will find some useful info. Also have a healthy diet, you need plenty of vitamins (mostly Biotin).
If you use cap,headphones or something like that then stop using it! It ruins your hair. (personal expirience: I was getting bald because my hair was too weak from the use of headphones. Now it’s much stronger than before)

My hair is too short how long until I get longish hair again?
Please help. My hair has always been my pride and joy. I figured since it is pretty damn healthy, it could deal with some bleach damage. And I figured the master stylist who did all the color-corrections would know how much would be too much. I was wrong, and now I want to burst into tears every time I look at my hair or touch it. I just don’t know what to do. My hair has also NEVER been shorter than this and it breaks and falls out. What should I do to regrow hair?
