How to Make your Hair Grow Faster

There are very few things that are more frustrating than trying unsuccessfully to grow your hair. You try and try but it seems like it will forever be the length it is now.

Many people resort to so called “miracle” hair growth solutions and pills that claim to  make your hair grow faster. Others try the natural methods of horse chestnut and some forms of algae. There has been little to no scientific evidence to support the claims that any of these products actually work.

If your hair is not growing very fast. The likelihood is that there is something wrong with your body. What we put into our bodies is reflected on the outside so your body may be missing something vital.

A very common cause of the rate of hair growth slowing down is a vitamin B deficiency. Vitamin B plays a large part in the regeneration of cells and the growth of hair and nails. Make sure your diet contains plenty of leafy green vegetables, meat and plain nuts.

Another big cause of hair not growing is having a low iron level. Iron is responsible for oxygenating the blood and helping to carry it around the body. If the body does not get enough iron then it will keep any iron it does have and its reserves for the bloodstream and organs. It will re route the iron from the hair, skin and nails and make sure it is kept for the function of the vital organs. 

If your diet does not contain plenty of dark green vegetables, eggs or red meat then the chances are you are not getting enough iron in your bloodstream. If you think that there is a possibility that you may be anaemic then you must consult your doctor.

One of the biggest causes of slow hair growth is stress.  A great deal of things happen to our bodies when we are stressed. We sleep less, we don’t eat as well as we should, we are agitated and full of adrenaline.

Sleeping is absolutely essential to hair growth, our bodies repair and recharge themselves overnight and if we are not sleeping enough then they do not get the chance.

Another cause of slow hair growth is circulation. If the circulation is poor then the blood flow to the scalp is restricted. You can stimulate the flow of blood to the scalp by gently massaging your head when you wash your hair. 

Vitamins such as vitamin E and omega 3 are excellent for helping to boost the circulation.
