You are tired of your medium haircut or perhaps your short hair has grown out and now it seems as though it will never reach that descent and tidy length or be long enough to tie back. And you definitely don’t want extensions, but you just can’t imagine that your hair will ever grow long. Well, it might sound impossible, but there are ways to make your hair grow faster naturally! You just need to follow a few simple instructions and in a short time you’ll be surprised how stronger and longer your hair looks.
Brewer's Yeast Does Miracles for Your Hair
Brewer’s yeast is a natural nutritional supplement that is essential for skin, nails and hair strength and health. It prevents hair loss, revitalizes dry and damaged hair fibre, restores its natural shine and glow, and above all, it efficiently accelerates hair growth!
Brewer’s yeast contains many vitamins, minerals and proteins that are indispensable for your hair. The lack of these nutrients, instead, may cause weak, dull and brittle hair fibre, prone to breakage.
The B-complex vitamins present in this yeast contain folic acid, riboflavin, niacin, thiamin and piroxin that are fundamental to hair structure, as well as to its growth, while minerals, such as calcium, copper, chromium and iron, help maintain hair color and prevent loss. Proteins found in the brewer’s yeast are beneficial for damaged and weak hair and necessary for proper hair nutrition.
Dissolve 1-3 tablespoons of brewer’s yeast powder or flakes in half glass of lukewarm water and drink every morning, on an empty stomach. If you don’t like the taste of this beverage, you can add brewer’s yeast powder directly to your main dishes or sprinkle brewer’s yeast flakes over salads, soups and sandwiches.
Enhance Hair Growth with Extracts, Oils and Massage
It has been proved that a regular scalp massage improves circulation and increases the blood flow towards the roots, whish in turn enhances the supply of nutrients needed for a healthy hair growth. And if you add herbal extracts and essential oils to your normal massage and to your daily hair care, the results will be amazing!
Do not use essential oils in their pure state: always mix them with basic oils such as coconut or castor oil, which has restructuring and hair-strengthening properties, or add them to your shampoo, conditioner or hair pack. Let’s take at look three of the most important herbs for our hair.
- Horsetail liquid extract contains silica, an abundant mineral that helps your hair grow faster naturally, maintaining it shiny and strong. Drink 25 drops of horsetail extract diluted in a glass of water, morning and evening, for 3-4 weeks. You can also add several drops of horsetail to your regular shampoo and massage your scalp.
- Peppermint essential oil increases the blood flow into the root of your hair and stimulates hair growth. Add 20 drops of this oil to your shampoo bottle and use it regularly. Prepare a hair pack by mixing ½ cup of distilled water, half cup of a neutral hair conditioner, 1 teaspoon of castor oil and 12 drops of peppermint oil. Keep in a bottle and apply 2 times a week. Massage it gently into your hair and scalp for 10 minutes, leave it on for 15 more minutes, then rinse.
- Golden millet oil is rich in silica and vitamins A and B and therefore assists the natural hair growth. Take golden millet oil capsules (200mg) 2 or 3 times a day and use shampoos and conditioners that contain this precious ingredient.
Nourish Your Hair and It Will Grow Faster
Our hair, just like the rest of our body cells, follows a life cycle of birth, growth and death. In order to grow healthy and strong it needs adequate amounts of nutritive elements, among which zinc, biotin, vitamins and proteins are of major importance.
Vitamins A, E, and vitamin B in particular (spinach, artichokes, savoy cabbage), are essential for hair health and growth.
Proteins are necessary for the formation of keratin, a type of protein that is the major component of hair. Excellent sources of proteins are fatless meat, poultry, fish, cheese, yogurt, eggs and nuts.
Biotin is a water-soluble member of the B complex-group of vitamins containing sulfur, which increases hair growth and strengthens hair fibre. A biotin deficiency may cause hair breakage and hair loss. Foods rich in biotin are peanuts, almonds, chocolate, tomatoes, eggs, carrots and yogurt.
Important minerals for hair health and growth are zinc (shellfish, meat, nuts and seeds, cereals) and magnesium (nuts, whole grains and green vegetables).
