Hi there, thank you ever so much for sharing your tips for healthy hair growth. It all sounds very, very good. I’m really interested in hair growth, especially after I too cut my hair into a short pixie cut! Food really is the key to growing healthy hair, almonds and avocados are both delicious and boost your hair growth. You should also try getting some broccoli into your diet if you haven’t already. Please do try the scalp massage, it really can work on some people! Thanks again for sharing.
I am a survivor all of my hair was gone and it is coming back ,but very slow.I have some organic flax oil with lignans can I use that? I really want my hair back, because I do not like the mascular look. Thank God for you

i also have done hair smoothing because my hair was very curly and very short (about 9inch only ) but doing a proper haircare and these remedies help me to grow my hair faster(now my hair is35inch long)
Protein helps your hair grow and protect it from chemical and environmental damage. If you style or apply heat to your hair often, using a protein treatment can protect your hair. You can purchase these online or use coconut oil at home. Coconut oil helps reduce protein lost both before and after washing hair.
Androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition that can affect both men and women. Men with this condition, called male pattern baldness, can begin suffering hair loss as early as their teens or early 20s. It’s characterized by a receding hairline and gradual disappearance of hair from the crown and frontal scalp. Women with this condition, called female pattern baldness, don’t experience noticeable thinning until their 40s or later. Women experience a general thinning over the entire scalp, with the most extensive hair loss at the crown.
The range of treatments and therapies available to combat hair loss has increased dramatically in the past 10 years, from natural-look prosthetics to hair-thickening sprays and the transplants, which can cost between €10k and €20k.
We are born with the total amount of hair follicles we will ever have over our lifetime. There may be about 5 million on our body, but our head has about 100,000 follicles. As we age, some follicles stop producing hair, which is how baldness or hair thinning occurs.
Aloe vera has also been reported to have a protective effect against radiation damage to the skin, which can lead to hair loss. Following the administration of aloe vera gel, an antioxidant protein called metallothionein is generated in the skin, which scavenges free radicals and prevents UV-induced suppression. (14)

After the therapy, the serum zinc levels increased significantly, and positive therapeutic effects were observed for nine out of 15 patients (66.7 percent). The researchers concluded that zinc supplementation needs to be given to the alopecia areata patients who have a low serum zinc level, and it could even become an adjuvant therapy for patients who didn’t experience results when using traditional therapeutic methods, which is why zinc is one of the most important vitamins for hair growth.

If the smell of Johnson’s No More Tangles triggers PTSD flashbacks to your childhood, you know what’s up. Thick hair means knots that are tied with Boy Scout–level strength. Forcing a comb or paddle brush through it is time-consuming and hair-ruining.
– Advocates using heat tools everyday for styling to cut back on damage if you need to use a blow dryer wait till your hair is almost dry to reduce breakage & never comb or brush wet hair , hair is more weaker and prone to breakage when it’s wet .
Hair is considered to be a major component of an individual’s general appearance, and the psychological impact of hair loss results in detrimental changes in self-esteem and self-worth. It also affects a large number of people, as 50 percent of men are affected by genetic hair loss by the age of 50. In women, the major cause of hair loss before the age of 50 is nutritional, with 30 percent affected. The main cause of hair loss for women appears to be depleted iron stores, but corrections of these imbalances can stop the excessive hair loss within a few months. (15)
There’s been a revolution in biology. Armed with powerful new tools, scientists are learning how to read the complex chemical languages of the body, including how to coin new treatments for hair loss.

Hi Rebecca SO pleased that you’ve benefitted from the tips in the article! I can’t recommend both coconut oil and scalp massage enough – they work absolute wonders for your hair health. So happy for you, just a bit of commitment and you really can see an improvement. Thanks for leaving such a lengthy comment, really made my day and I will try the mask with yogurt and honey too. All the best with your hair journey! Anushka
Hi. Thank you so much for the advice but I was wondering. Did you only use it on the scalp at the roots or do you do all of your hair? How much oil did you use? How much almond oil do you mix with the castor oil? Sorry to bombard you with questions I hope you don’t mind.
Spinach is an important vegetable for hair growth because it’s high in protein and vitamins A and C which your body needs in order to produce sebum to moisturise your scalp. A deficiency in these vitamins can result in brittle hair or even hair loss so make sure you are eating plenty of spinach in your diet.
The key to a good style starts in the shower. We washed and conditioned with L’Oreal B6 Biotin. We then used Dual Stylers by Techni.art Liss and Pump-up (also by L’Oreal) for volume with a velvety smooth finish. I finished the look with Kevin Murphy Shimmer.Shine and a little hairspray!
Hairs are tiny shafts of a protein called keratin. They are anchored in a group of specialised cells called hair follicles, which supply oxygen and nutrients to the root (or bulb) of the hair, and lubricate the hair with an oily substance called sebum.
Hi Ivyena. You can leave it on overnight under a shower cap if you wish, which will serve as a deeply-moisturising hair mask. However, I wouldn’t leave it on during the day. The oil will stain your clothes and can also make your hair look very greasy and unclean. I hope this helps 🙂
If the client is wanting a more wavy or curly look, I recommend using a 1 to 1 1/2-inch barrel curling iron. Starting in the front, take vertical sections and curl the hair back and away from the face. Once you reach the back of the head, start on the other side of the head and continue to curl the hair away from the face. Allow the curls to set for a minute, then run your fingers through or brush the curls for a softer, more lived-in look.
– Don’t keep your hair out, ponytailed, or in a bun every day. Keep hair clean and use good oil in hair. After completing those steps, braid you hair. Many people wash their hair and braid it when it’s still wet, don’t do that because you hair will smell, you might also lose hair, and etc.
My hair use to be really long and pretty.. i haven’t gotten it cut or anything. It’s shorter, it breaks off and everyone thinks I got a hair cut. I did the coconut oil treatment for a month but it didn’t work for my hair.I took Biotin tablets and they didn’t really work either. I want my hair to be long again but i’m not sure what to do.
This is a great start for anyone with thicker, darker hair that’s looking to go into their first balayage. It’s a realistic goal, plus it lends itself to less maintenance by working with the client’s natural color and blending the hand-painted color up into the client’s root.
You can encourage the hair to produce hair faster by massaging it regularly. Simply, you warm up coconut oil until comfortable to touch. Then, you apply it into your hair scalp and roots for about 5-10 minutes. Repeat this method once a week for a couple of months, you will notice a significant hair growth.
Hi! I recently have gotten a shoulder length hair cut and although I love it, I miss my long hair. I have been doing the inversion method for about a week and it doesn’t seem to be doing much. I hope to try and grow it 7 inches by April (it is now October.) Could I be doing something wrong? Thank you!
But many experts in the field are sceptical, pointing out that JAKinhibs seem to combat only specific types of alopecia and have not been proven to effect the most common (by far) cause of hair-loss, male pattern baldness.
Aloe vera is natural gift . it is used for so many home remedies. It is not only used for beauty tips. but also used as medicine for whole body. It reduces our body heat. thank you giveing a usefull tips.
Having extremely long hair has been my passion since I was 14. I used to think that it was pretty tough. With this article, wikihow articles, and pinterest, I’m able to get my hair to go below the waistline and almost to my hips. I’m getting closer to classic length without realizing it. 6-8 inches to my goal length, baby (15-20 cm)! I eat more than enough almonds almost every day. More than any other nut I’ve eaten. Nobody in my family has hair as long as mine. The longest my female friends and family can go is down to their armpits. My sister had waist length hair and now it stayed at armpit length since last summer (June 2017). Most people don’t start doing treatments to their hair till later in life. It really was a good thing I started paying attention and doing all of the easy steps. Just now as I was doing the inversion method, I apply a really small amount of Argan oil (1 pump to avoid greasiness) and massage it in. It’s like a natural serum without the harsh chemicals including alcohol.
The anagen phase is known as the growth phase. This is the phase where the hair physically grows approximately 1 cm per month.[1] It begins in the papilla and can last from two to six years.[2][3] The span at which the hair remains in this stage of growth is determined by genetics. The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase, the longer it will grow. During this phase, the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibers[contradictory], and the follicle buries itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand. About 85% – 90% of the hairs on one’s head are in the anagen phase at any given time
Biotin and pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) have been used as alternative treatments for hair loss. Biotin benefits your hair by rebuilding hair shingles that have been damaged from over-shampooing, exposure to the sun, blow-drying and ironing. Vitamin B5 supports the adrenal glands, which helps stimulate hair growth.
A mixture of orange juice and apple puree is also a good way to get thicker hair naturally. Applying this to your hair and scalp for thirty minutes once or twice a week is great to promote thick hair. It should be rinsed well. No additional shampoo is necessary if it is not desired.
First, I’m going to trace back the current “understanding” of male pattern baldness. What do the masses believe is the cause of hair loss, and why do they believe it? Where did that information come from and who wins from this dogmatic view, while others lose?

To fight free radical damage and protect the hair from aging, fill up on vitamin C foods like oranges, red peppers, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, strawberries, grapefruit and kiwi. If you need supplementation, take 500–1,000 milligrams of vitamin C twice daily as an antioxidant.

Anushka….i owned a Holistic Health Center in Naples, Florida and was recommending Silica for hair and nails over 20 years ago…maybe 30! I will be 60 years old this year and still have hair to mid back. I am going to try coconut oil ON HAIR. I have been using it for other purposes for years but trying massage and coconut oil….will let you know results. Will be charting results and taking pics!
Most of us, when we think of hair loss, think about aging men. Nearly all men eventually get that receding M-shaped hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head, also known as male pattern baldness. It’s called androgenetic alopecia, and it’s caused by a by-product of testosterone called DHT.
Hi Kayla, thanks for your comments. It’s definitely possible to improve the quality and health of your hair on a limited budget, in my article you’ll find a few different ways to boost hair growth and make your hair stronger. Firstly it’s important to eat plenty of Biotin-rich foods such as eggs, almonds, pecans, walnuts, milk, salmon and avocado. Scalp massage will help boost the blood flow and promote hair growth, you can read more about this in the article, and finally oils definitely help. I do like argan oil, but I prefer raw coconut oil. I hope this helps!
Hi Siana, great questions. From what I know and have read, the scalp massage helps increase blood circulation to the hair follicles. The pressure applies warms the skin and open up the blood vessels to increase flow and boost circulation, but the results are diminished if this is done every day. It should be done in short bursts – for example for seven day then break for 3 weeks – if you want to see rapid growth. If you perform scalp massage every day then I don’t think this will damage your hair particularly, but it may encourage hairs to fall out depending how vigorously you massage your scalp. I hope this helps!

Oils rich in different fatty acid species have been used extensively in both animal and human studies to evaluate the effects on skin and hair health, while there is strong evidence that supports certain vitamins for hair growth.
