Before buying that formula that promises to cure all your hair growth problems, accept the fact that there is no surefire way to grow more hair, according to “Marie Claire Magazine” and “Essence Magazine.” However, whether you lost some hair due to female pattern balding or just want a thicker mane for beauty reasons, you can increase your chance of growing more hair by following a few tips.
You do not have to visit a masseuse or a salon to get quality scalp massages, according to “Marie Claire Magazine.” However, any type of good scalp massage can help promote more hair growth by boosting the number of nutrients that flow to the hair follicles. If you’d rather not take the time and expense to visit a salon, you can massage your scalp while shampooing your hair. Gently use your fingertips to stimulate the entire scalp and repeat.
Take Your Vitamins
Taking your vitamins regularly can help promote hair growth and general good health, according to “Marie Claire Magazine.” You can buy an over-the-counter (OTC) multivitamin that consists of the B vitamins.
“Essence Magazine” recommends that women who want to stop or avoid hair loss take biotin supplements each day. A 2.5 milligram (mg) pill a day may well help keep female pattern baldness away, as biotin reportedly helps boost those essential nutrients required for a full and healthy mane.
Reduce Blow Drying
Blow drying can contribute to unwanted hair loss, according to the Mayo Clinic. If you are willing to let your hair dry in the air rather than with the blow dryer, you may be able to keep your hair thicker and longer in the years to come.
Avoid Tight Hairstyles
Tight hairstyles are another factor that leads to thinner hair in women, according to the Mayo Clinic. Avoid pulling, rubbing or twisting your hair unnecessarily. The Mayo Clinic notes that braids, buns and ponytails are especially vulnerable to causing hair loss and breakage.
Eating a well-balanced diet can help promote hair growth as well as good skin tone, according to the Mayo Clinic. General nutrition guidelines suggest a well-rounded food plan of whole grains, lean proteins, healthier oils, such as olive oil, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Drinking plenty of water can also help promote not only good hair, but general beauty and health.
