Hair is one crowning glory that should always shine and be it in all its glory! But, if you are trying to re-grow hair that you’ve lost or would simply like to improve the texture of your hair, try some of these natural ways that will stimulate hair growth and enhance your overall look.
How to Naturally Stimulate Hair Growth
1. Comb your hair thrice a day:
Do you think that just combing your hair could promote hair re-growth? But yes, it is possible as combing gives the scalp a generous massage, and helps in improving blood circulation, which in turn rejuvenates hair follicles and promotes hair growth. Comb your hair thrice a day by starting from the roots and continue up to the tips.
2. Keep the scalp and hair clean:
It is a simple step yet deserves your attention. You need to use a mild shampoo every alternate day to keep the scalp and hair clean as dirt and oil can block the hair follicles and inhibits hair growth. You can oil your hair as well but make sure that you rinse it off properly.
3. Minimize applying heat and using hair styling products:
We all love to style our hair and use hot styling tools most of the times, but regular use can go hair to go dull and frizzy, and the damage done sometimes can be irreparable. Avoid styling tools as much as possible and use sparingly only when needed. And don’t forget to use heat protection spray before using any styling tool. Also, styling products are not always good for the health of hair, especially when the application method goes wrong.
4. Consume healthy diet
Deficiency of zinc and iron can inhibit hair growth. So, make sure you add plenty of green vegetables, antioxidants, and lean meats into your regular diet. Also, foods that are rich in Biotin or Vitamin B7 are good for hair. Some of such foods are egg yolks, halibuts, fish, nuts, and lentils. Oysters, legumes, and shellfish contain rich amount of selenium and zinc, which are highly beneficial for hair growth. Salmon, avocado, and walnuts are affluent in omega 3 fatty acid, which also assists in keeping your hair healthy.
Yoga benefits all the organs and parts of our body and hair is no exception. Practicing yoga can stimulate hair follicles, which indirectly aids in hair growth. Here are some yoga poses that you can try to stimulate hair growth.
6. Choose a good parlour:
Try not to be carried away by the fashion trends and avoid experimenting with your hair. Try to visit a reputable parlour that has trained hair stylists and get you regular trimming done as it helps in hair growth. However, make sure that that haircut is good and suits your face.
7. Remove product build-up from the scalp:
Use a good clarifying shampoo to get rid of product buildup. To remove buildup from scalp naturally, mix 2 tsp of white vinegar with 1 cup of water. Mix well and rinse your scalp with this liquid.
