How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster and Stronger

1. Get frequent trims.

It may seem counterintuitive, but if you want long hair that's actually healthy, you need to get regular trims. While haircuts don't make your hair grow any faster, they get rid of split endsthat break your hair. Eliminating the breakage gives the appearance that your hair is growing faster. After all, a split end that breaks can lead to your hair losing length — not to mention shine, volume and smoothness.

2. Eat the right diet.

Having long, strong hair doesn't just depend on which products you put on your hair; it also depends on what you put into your body. To promote hair growth, you need to 'feed' the hair from the inside. So what foods make hair grow quicker? Those high in protein, the building blocks of hair, including meats and other sources. Try increasing your protein intake with foods like fish, beans, nuts and whole grains. Even if you're not a meat lover, you should still aim to maintain a diet high in protein for hair growth. Women who don't get enough of it often experience more hair shedding.

3. Add a hair-healthy vitamin to your a.m. routine.

If your diet isn't supplying you with enough nutrition, a supplement could make a world of difference. Look for a multivitamin that's formulated and labeled 'for hair, skin and nails. I recommend Barlean's Essential Woman. Those contain important vitamins like biotin and C and B that can support hair.

  • Vitamin A

  • Vitamin C

  • Vitamin E

  • Zinc

  • Iron

  • Omega-3 fatty acids

4. Shampoo less and hydrate more.

How often you shampoo your hair does actually impact your hair's health. Wash your hair[only] two to three times a week allows your natural oils to penetrate your hair, allowing it to hydrate and repair itself. For thicker and fuller-looking hair fast, choose Hairstory New Wash in place of shampoo. It's cleansing with essential oils. You can also reach out to me for more info. Get 15%off using this link

6. Avoid excessive heat styling.

Stop over-styling your hair! If you must use heat, I recommend decreasing the temperature and always using a heat protectant — otherwise, you risk damaging your hair, leading to breakage and frizz. I like Verb Ghost Spray.

7. Brush hair regularly.

Going to bed with unbrushed hair may seem tempting when you're tired, but giving your hair a few quick strokes can be great for your hair and scalp's overall health. Starting at the scalp, use a boar bristle brush to distribute your scalp's oils evenly onto your hair so it stays naturally moisturized. Bonus: This simple step each night also helps increase circulation, which helps make your scalp healthier.

8. Keep your showers cooler and focus on scalp care.

A hot shower can dehydrate your skin — and it's also rough on your hair. Turn the water temperature down when cleansing, and give your scalp a little extra love. Massage with your fingers or Hairstory scalp brush as you wash to deeply de-gunk and help boost circulation.

9. Protect hair from physical damage.

Hair is especially susceptible to breakage when it's wet, so instead, detangle hair before washing. Water exposure swells and stretches the hair’s shaft, which causes the shingle-like outer layer to lift, and adding stress from brushing in that state can cause it to break.
