Truth: some people are just genetically blessed with gorgeous long locks.
Unfortunately, for the rest of us, we had to go such lengths and perhaps expensive treatments to make this happen.
Well, good news. If you have hair fall out or you simply have slow hair growth, these five natural hacks can help you regrow your hair fast.
And since they’re natural and all, you won’t need to worry about possibly damaging your scalp and hair.
There’s even a way to encourage hair growth through massage, but more on that later
Now without further ado, let’s get down to business.
Smelly method alert! I know it’s gross but onions, as much as you hate it, is an extremely effective natural hack of promoting hair growth.
You may shed some tears for a while, but you’ll be thanking us later for taking this risk.
A study was conducted on a group of people who were asked to put onion juice on their scalp 2x a day for two consecutive weeks.
And the results were crazy! Those people started growing hair on areas that were completely bald before the study.
2. Castor oil treatment
Taking good care of the scalp is one way of achieving healthy hair.
Have you heard of castor oil? It’s typically used on hair and scalp as it is believed to ease dermatitis.
Also, castor oil nourishes over-processed, damaged hair.
Since it’s very oily, it’s best used with a carrier oil such as coconut or olive oil.
Applying this solution twice a month and leaving it overnight is highly recommended.
Are any of the two methods your cup of tea?
If not, then stick with us because we still have three more hair growth hacks to show you.
Don’t worry, these methods won’t make you cry like the first one.
3. Massage the scalp
Ever heard of a scalp massage? Yep, it exists, trust me.
In fact, massaging your scalp at least once a week promotes fast hair growth.
And if you have more time, then you can do it every day, too.
No one’s stopping you! Aside from the obvious fact that scalp massages feel amazing, they also do boost blood flow to your scalp.
The blood is consists of oxygen and essential nutrients.
So, ensuring that your hair follicles and roots absorb all the nutrition they need will result in faster and healthy hair growth.
4. Exfoliate the scalp
Remember how exfoliating is done to unclog pores to get rid of the sebum on the skin?
Believe it or not, but scalp exfoliation is also a thing, albeit, not really a common one.
The skin on the scalp is thicker than the skin on the body and face.
What’s more, it produces more sebum.
As such, getting clogged pores on your scalp is entirely true.
Thus, it’s good to exfoliate your scalp to promote quicker hair growth.
Mix a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar on one teaspoon of your usual shampoo.
Use this solution as you would when shampooing your hair.
Leave it on for five minutes max and repeat it twice a week at most.
5. Eat the right vitamins
Certain vitamins encourage hair growth.
These include Vitamin A, C, B12, and B7.
But instead of taking supplements to nourish your hair, opt for a natural way through foods.
Walnuts are rich in B vitamins, dark leafy greens for vitamin A, and celery or amla fruit for vitamin C.
Use these foods the next time you make a smoothie to make your hair grow back quicker and healthily.
