Natural ways to increase hair growth

By Edited Sep 9, 2015 0 0

Eat more protein. Sense a deficiency in protein can weaken the hair shaft and cause breakage, you should definitely increase the amount of protein you take in. Try to eat more red meat, dairy and even protein shakes to help increase your protein intake.

Conditioners. When your scalp lacks nutrients, it can break more often and cause you to look like you have thin hair even though you have nearly the same amount, it just lost its life. A good conditioner can add vital nutrients to prevent breakage and increase the thickness of each individual hair, causing it to look thicker.

Don't drink alcohol or do stimulants. Stimulants like alcohol, coffee and cigarettes increase DHT, which is a hormone responsible for premature balding. When DHT forms around the follicles, it causes the hair to go into a resting phase until the DHT is gone.

Exercise. When you exercise, your heart beats faster and blood flow goes throughout the body more easily and increases the amount of nutrients given to your hair. The extra blood will also increase the amount of oxygen your scalp receives, which will increase hair growth.

Reduce stress. Stress has always been a big problem when it comes to hair loss. If you are stressed out all the time, it can cause many problems. Go to a yoga class or go for a walk and try to do your best to reduce stress at work and at home.

B vitamins. Vitamin B3, B6 and B12 are among the B vitamins which are responsible for hair growth. A deficiency in B6 can cause your scalp to not get enough blood circulation and a deficiency in B12 can cause the hair to look thin and weak.

Consider transplants. A hair transplant may seem expensive, but the price continues to go down and it's a completely natural outpatient procedure where they use your actual hair follicles from another part of your head and then they add them to the top of your head. This is a natural and permanent solution where your hair continues to grow as long as you live.

Get healthy. Many people fail to see the bigger health concerns that can come from a little hair loss. If you are noticing hair loss and it wasn't gradual, then you could have diabetes or another health issue, so it's important to go to the doctor and get everything checked out to make sure it's not something serious.
