Healthy food is, of course, the most important but sometimes it is not enough for hair growth. There are many vitamins and supplements that will help your hair grow faster and thicker if you take them regularly.

If you take it regularly, your hair is guaranteed to be very healthy, thick and most importantly, you will very soon notice a rapid increase in the growth rate of your hair. And you will have your dream hair by just taking one supplement a day. Unfortunately, there are a few factors because of which the B-Vitamin might not help. Those are genetics, hormones, and age.
Fun fact; Hair mostly consist of protein. And the B-Vitamin helps to produce glucose and breaks down proteins into amino acids, which supports your hair and keeps it healthy.
There are also a few foods that contain Biotin in themselves. Those are eggs, bananas, raspberries, almonds, walnuts, sunflower, cauliflower, soybeans, peanut butter and so on.
Vitamin A is also very good for your hair growth since it is essential for all the cells of your body and we all know (or should know) that hair cells are the fastest growing tissue in the human body.
Vitamin C provides collagen, which is a very important protein for hair growth and thickness.
Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant that builds and repairs tissue and prevents oxidative stress caused by free radicals. It provides moisture and protects your hair from getting dry. Dryness is terrible when you want to grow your hair out.
There is also Folic acid, which can make your hair thick and shiny. It very important for hair growth because it boosts healthy cell generation. If you want to get it from food, then definitely eat chicken and eggs daily.
The supplements mentioned above, will not only help your hair grow faster, but they will also make your hair thicker, shinier and healthier. So it is a win-win situation.

Then, apply it on our hair and all over your scalp. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse it out with cool water.
The third and last mask is the onion mask. Yes, onions are actually very good for your hair growth and also health, they are rich in sulfur that promotes collagen production in your scalp, which allows new hair follicles to grow. So be prepared to be surprised by great results. You will have to work with the smell, but it is worth it, believe us.

Leave it on for about 10-15 minutes and wash it out with shampoo and conditioner. The onions smell will be replaced by the smell of your hair products.
4. The washing process

Washing is the most important part of hair care and doing it wrong can cause not only hair and health lose, but it also can affect growth.
We are here to help you do the right things during the process of washing your hair.
First of all, you will have to change your shower routine and by that we mean, wash your hair every other day, instead of doing that every day and even twice a day. Washing your hair too much can remove the natural oils that your scalp produces, which help your hair grow. We are not saying “don’t shower every day”. All you have to do is using a shower cap, which will keep your hair dry.
The next important thing is using the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair growth. There are millions of options out there and can be quite stressful to choose. But the things that make them right or wrong are the ingredients. Look for hair products that are made by natural ingredients and always avoid the ones that have silicone in them. Silicone blocks out moisture and nutrients, hindering hair growth.
Next strange thing is washing your hair with cold water. This one is, of course, for warmer days, we don’t want you to catch a cold. This might be surprising for you, but hot water can damage your hair badly. How so? Well, the heat from the water opens the hair shaft of each strand of hair, letting out valuable moisture, making your hair more brittle and prone to damage. Cold water does the exact opposite of that, which is perfect for growing your hair quickly without damaging them.
And lastly, never brush your wet hair. Brushing your hair, in general, is good for increasing hair growth because it stimulates the scalp and spreads the natural oils throughout the shaft of each strand of hair. You should brush your hair 1-2 times a day when they are dry. And never brush them too much.
Our daily routines are the most important things for self-care. If you follow this shower advice, you will be presently surprised by the fast growth of our hair.
Tips: avoid mechanical tools such as blow dryers at all costs, because these things can really damage your hair. Drink a lot of water, which is the mother source of health and moisture. Keep your diet clean, bad food can cause hair loss and thin. Cut your damaged hair regularly to keep it healthy and smooth.
Conclusion: Nature provides us with a lot of things, but sometimes we need to take everything in our hands and put a little more effort to reach goals such as growing our hair quickly. Using even one of these tips will help you with your dream of having long and healthy hair very fast. But to keep you safe and grounded from big expectations, we will remind you again that patience is very important with hair.
