Regular Head Massage:
When you massage your head, it stimulates the scalp circulation and brings more oxygen and nutrients into your hair follicles. More nourishment means your hair will grow healthier and stronger. You can massage with or without oil. But if you choose to use oil, make sure you use cold-pressed ones like coconut, castor, almond or olive oil. Apply the oil of your choice on the scalp and massage gently for 5 minutes or so. Let the oil soak in for an hour before washing. You can also keep it overnight for better conditioning. For healthier and stronger hair, do a head massage at least twice a week. Have you ever gotten a head massage? Which oil do you prefer for your hair?

This remedy is regarded as one of the most effective and oldest ones. The reason is that onion contains sulphur that boosts collagen production in the tissues and helps in the regrowth of hair. Don’t let its strong smell keep you away from using it, because it fades after one rinse. Cut a few slices of onion and squeeze out its juice either by mashing it or grating it. Now apply it on your scalp for about 10-15 minutes. Let it work its magic and then rinse it off with a mild shampoo.
This home remedy is used all over the world for quick and natural hair growth. This is because eggs contain high levels of proteins which help in the formation of new hair. It is also rich in sulphur, zinc, iron, selenium, phosphorus and iodine. For the mask, separate one egg white in a bowl and add one teaspoon of olive oil. You can also use grapeseed oil or lavender oil and honey. Make a paste of it and apply it all over your hair and scalp for about 20 minutes. Rinse it off with cool water and some shampoo.
Aloe Vera Gel:
Aloe vera gel is full of hair benefits and can get rid of almost all hair problems from taming frizz to curing dandruff. It also minimizes hair loss and boosts hair growth of dormant follicles which results in faster regrowth of hair. It conditions and smoothes dry and brittle hair shafts which reduce hair breakage and hair loss. Thanks to proteolytic enzymes and minerals such as copper and zinc, aloe vera gel is a miraculous ingredient, clinically proven to stimulate hair growth and diminish hair loss naturally and efficiently. Treat your hair with an aloe vera massage the night before you wash your hair. Leave the product overnight and let it get absorbed into the roots. Wash your hair the next day. Also, you can prepare a hair mask with one cup of aloe vera gel and two tablespoons of castor oil. Add a teaspoon of fenugreek powder into it and mix. Apply it on your hair from root to tip. Let it sit for 20 minutes and wash your hair with a mild cleanser. Repeat this weekly for best results.
Eat A Protein-Rich Diet:
Here’s the bottom line—you can try all the hair growth remedies in the book but unless you’re taking your diet into consideration, nothing will really help. A balanced diet with proteins and nutrients like Vitamin A and C can boost hair growth and give you amazing results. Meals rich in biotin and proteins are very important to maintain hair health and improve the quality of your hair. Superfoods such as lentils, green leafy vegetables, fruits, fish and nuts can help you get a fuller and healthy-looking mane. While proper nutrition is necessary, drinking plenty of water, exercising regularly and trying not to stress can also help big time in boosting hair growth.
Infused with essential fatty acids, coconut oil has the ability to penetrate the hair shaft and make it healthy, shiny and lustrous. The best thing is that it can be used before and after washing your hair as a leave-in conditioner depending on your hair type. For best results warm some coconut oil and massage into the scalp and hair slowly, at least two hours before shampooing. If your hair is curly or severely dry, take a few drops of oil, rub between your palms and scrunch your hair when it’s damp to get a healthy shine.
If your hair is falling out like the autumn leaves or turning grey overnight – even after doing all the right things like eating healthy and exercising, you might be stressed. Stress affects our whole body, and hair is no exception. It can cause a disproportionate number of hair to go into the resting phase at the same time. This leads to large clumps of hair coming out all at once. The good news is that stress-related hair loss is usually temporary, as long as the stress is temporary. For healthy locks, find time to relax. Engage yourself in stress-busting activities like yoga, walking in nature, gardening and meditation. You can also seek support from friends and family.
Trim Your Split Ends Regularly:
It might sound counterproductive if you want your hair to grow longer, regular trims get rid of dry, damaged ends and are necessary for natural, healthy growth. If left untreated, split ends can work their way up the shaft of your hair strand and cause even more breakage, which means the only thing growing will be your frustration. If your stylist takes off too much length every time you go in for a visit, your hair won’t get longer, so be clear about your hair goals when communicating with them. Depending on the condition of your hair, your hairstyle, and your daily routine, you could need a trim anywhere from every six weeks to six months. That said, the better you care for your hair on a day-to-day basis, the less often you’ll need a trim, and the longer your hair can grow naturally.
Detangle Gently Using The Right Hairbrush:
Nothing will test your patience like properly detangling the knots in your hair. But it’s an important step in growing your strands faster and one that definitely shouldn’t be rushed. If you have a tendency to quickly rip a brush through your hair – you might want to reconsider. Not taking proper care when brushing can cause your strands to break off and split—pretty much the opposite of hair growth. When it comes to brushing your hair, think: slow and gentle. And, turns out the brush you choose makes a difference. While a brush with metal bristles has its purpose, a wide-tooth comb, a detangling brush, or a paddle brush with rounded bristles are all better options for gently combing through knots and causing minimal breakage. Almost as important as what you use to brush your hair is when you choose to do so. Instead of detangling after the shower, when the hair is most vulnerable and fragile, comb through your knots before you wash your hair.
Apple Cider Vinegar:
This vinegar gently cleanses the scalp and maintains pH balance which accelerates hair growth. Make a diluted solution by mixing 75 ml with one litre of water. To apply this solution, use it as a final rinse after washing your hair. This will also give your hair added shine and boost growth. You must have heard about Apple Cider Vinegar is useful for humans, but did you know that it is very beneficial for dogs as well? Surprised?

Smoking is a personal choice and we’re not here to judge, but we’d be lying if we said the act doesn’t affect your hair in some way. It restricts blood flow to the scalp and follicles, which in turn restricts vital oxygen and nutrients your hair and scalp need to be healthy. Also, the toxins caused by smoking can soak into the hair follicles and cause disruption. Increase Your Physical Activity: When your body is active, it reduces stress hormones that are capable of damaging your hair follicles. Because of this, you should try to remain active throughout the day in order to prevent stress hormones from stopping hair growth. Not only this but increasing your body’s activity increases your blood circulation, allowing more blood flow to your scalp. This leads to faster hair growth.
Enriched with polyphenols, green tea is one of the best remedies to get thicker hair. This is because it contains bioactive compounds which diminish hair loss and promote its growth. Wash your scalp using warm green tea, which destroys fungal and bacterial parasites. You can drink 1-2 cups daily for best results.
