Hair growth Home remedies
Your hair is an important part of your image. If you have ever had a bad haircut, your stylist heard 6 inches when you said 2, or if you have had the misfortune of finding that your hair is thinning, then you know how far reaching to the rest of your life the effect can be. And depending on how you like to style your hair or the length you keep it, it can throw you off your game for months… or even years! Knowing that hair grows at an average rate of ½ an inch per month can be disheartening if you want to have a look that is longer than what you currently have. But with the tips below, you will be able to have your “dream doo” in as little time as possible.
Massage Your Scalp
We all know that great hair starts at the root. This is where the follicle receives nutrients delivered from the body’s circulatory system. The greatest benefit of massaging the scalp is that it encourages blood circulation to your scalp. As a result, it will stimulate the follicles in your hair. We also know that ensuring good nutrition and supplementation will increase the benefits of massage exponentially. Aside from that, you can also use different types of oil when you massage your scalp. To do this, just apply the oil to your hair. Then, gently massage the scalp for 3 to 5 minutes. Lastly, rinse the oil out of the hair. (Later we will offer a few different types of oils you can use.)
Turn Your World Upside Down (for 2-5 Minutes)
We were surprised to find out that not many people know about this technique for hair and scalp health. Just in case you are not familiar, all you need to do is hold your hair in an upside down position. Do this for 2 to 5 minutes every day. While many people buy inversion tables or other devices to help them hold this position, it is not necessary. Hanging your head off the edge of your bed will work perfectly. The idea behind this hair growth trick is that it can temporarily improve the circulation of blood and nutrients to the scalp.
Coconut Oil and Curry Leaves
You may not be aware that a secret tool for hair growth may be sitting in your kitchen or at least the baking aisle of your local grocer! Coconut oil mixed with curry leaves has been used for ages for hair and scalp health. Many cultures claim that it not only accelerates hair growth, but it also combats premature greying of your hair! And it couldn’t be easier to mix!
Here’s how: Make sure you have some fresh curry leaves, coconut oil, and a mason jar to keep your end product in. You can get any of these the next time you are at the store. Next set aside a ½ cup of leaves inside the jar and put a full cup of coconut oil into a pot on low to medium heat. Once the oil is heated, turn the stovetop off and pour the oil into the jar, over the curry leaves (be sure that the leaves are completely immersed.) This is your new, home-made topical that you should use 2-3 times per week. It is best to do a “patch test” on a low spot on the back of your head if you are unsure about any allergies you may have.
Castor oil teems with Vitamin E as well as fatty acids that are found to be vital in hair growth. Most specifically, it is high in Omega which is a very effective hair growth remedy. In using castor oil, you need to have it mixed with the same amount of olive, almond and coconut oil. Massage the scalp with the castor oil and leave your hair for thirty to forty five minutes. Also, you can have some add-ons such as rosemary, eucalyptus, thyme oil, peppermint and place the mixture on your hair.
Ease the Stresses in Your Life
Lastly, keep in mind that one of the most significant factors that contribute to loss of hair is stress. It has been found out that stress can interfere on the normal cycle of hair growth since they are both linked back to hormonal balance and nutrition. Because of this, minimizing stress can not only help quicken the growth of hair but also stop and reverse any thinning that may be occurring. Never underestimate the value of breathing exercises, meditation or any other relaxation procedures.
Hair is considered by many to be a vital asset in the physical appearance of a person. If you are reading this then you most likely agree. With the help of the hair growth remedies listed above, you can expect to have long hair in a very short time. Healthy diet, active lifestyle, healthy habits and quality hair products will steer you toward the winning end.
