Perhaps, salon procedures show high efficiency, but it's still a cat in a poke. And I would not trust the purchased miracle-agents, activators of hair growth and the like. But the magic button for instant hair growth does not exist, and this represents a certain work.
Growth to 1-1.5 cm per month is normal, a good indicator. 2-2.5 cm per month - this is an excellent result, which is the target. So, let's go directly to the most effective ways to speed up hair growth at home.
What affects the speed of hair growth from the inside?
- First, it is, as it is banal, a psychological state. If you live in a state of depression, stress and chronic lack of sleep, then the body is unlikely to find the strength in order to maximize focus on the hair. More rest and relax - it's always only good, go in for sports. Drinking alcohol and smoking are also not compatible with long beautiful hair.
- Now about nutrition. With food, we receive all the necessary building materials for the hair and substances that regulate metabolism and hair growth. First of all, it is worthwhile to lean on fruits and vegetables, seeds and nuts, greens, dairy products (no more than 0.5 liters per day), eggs, fish. Do not forget to use daily oil - olive, linseed. If desired, you can add to the diet of vitamin-mineral complexes and dietary supplements. And it is very important to drink enough water per day - let clean water always be at your fingertips.
And outside?First of all, it is necessary to pay attention to those physical and chemical traumatic influences to which we subject our hair. This is drying the hair dryer and styling, coloring and perm. All this leads to the fact that the hair is split and break off at the ends, and in this case, long hair will never grow.
If you are serious, you will have to give up something and look for alternatives. I also thought that I could not live without styling hair with foam, hair spray and a hair dryer. But it turned out that living without it is not so difficult, and even easier.
We turn to the most interesting - the ways that help to accelerate the growth of hair due to the influx of blood to the scalp.
- Firstly, this is a regular Scalp massage, more about it in the article Head massage for hair growth . Strengthen the effect of massage can be with the help of castor or burdock oil and a couple of drops of essential oils that promote hair growth - thyme, rosemary , sage, ylang-ylang, pine. Choose the right natural massage comb.
- Secondly, these are Masks and lotions, the action of most of which is based on an irritating effect. Irritation of the scalp leads to an increased inflow of blood to the scalp and saturation of the hair follicles with nutrients. If you have sensitive skin, then many recipes may not suit you, be careful.
Masks for Rapid Hair GrowthMasks to accelerate hair growth with mustard powder. It has a pronounced irritant effect, causes burning sensation, and requires caution, since it dries the hair. To the mustard "burned", the mask should be added sugar - usually 1 teaspoon of sugar per 1 tablespoon of mustard powder. But the less sugar, the less it burns, so adjust it to yourself.
The mask is applied for 30-60 minutes or how much you can tolerate (but not more than an hour), under polyethylene and a towel. At the tips, apply any base oil to avoid overdrying. To wash off with shampoo. Use once a week for oily hair can be 2 times a week, for dry - 1 time in 10 days.
- The simplest recipe is to add a little water and 1 teaspoon of sugar to one tablespoon of mustard, mix and can be applied to the hair.
- More gentle option - 1 tablespoon mustard powder, 1-2 yolks, 100 ml kefir. This mask can be washed off without shampoo. Even more gentle option - with oils: 1 tablespoon mustard powder, 1-2 tablespoons burdock or castor oil, egg yolk. Here, shampoo will be needed to wash off the oils.
Be careful if you have sensitive skin. Note that the more dilute the pepper water, the more it burns, and so, respectively, the effect is stronger. For the first time, do not dilute it at all, then select individual proportions, and if the hair is dry, then combine the tincture of pepper with the base oils.
This mask to accelerate hair growth, use twice a week regularly for 3 months, to prevent falling out - 1 time per week. Keep mask for up to 2 hours under polyethylene and a towel.
If you feel a burning sensation, it is better not to risk and wash off the mask. Apply it should only on the scalp, as the hair tincture of pepper dries, and also changes the color of the dyed hair. Any suitable base oil can be applied to the tips first.
Variants of recipes for pepper mask:
- 1 tablespoon of tincture of pepper mixed with 1 tablespoon of any base oil, apply only to the scalp, hair roots.
- Mix one tablespoon of pepper tincture, onion juice, burdock oil and honey, add one egg yolk.
- 1 tablespoon of pepper tincture is mixed with one yolk and 100 ml of kefir.
- For 1 tablespoon of tincture of pepper, castor oil, calendula tincture, onion juice, mix and add the egg yolk.
But if this does not stop you, grate one onion on a fine grater, mix the gruel (or squeeze out the juice) with honey in a ratio of 3: 1, respectively. Rub in the roots of the hair, warm it, hold the mask for 40-60 minutes, rinse with shampoo. Rinse with cool water and lemon juice.
Masks with cinnamon:- Used as essential oil of cinnamon, and cinnamon powder (culinary). The effect of these masks is based on the fact that cinnamon "bakes" the scalp, causing a rush of blood to the hair follicles. With her, as with mustard, and tincture of pepper, you need to be very careful. Usually, the mask does not take more than one teaspoon of cinnamon powder or 5 drops of cinnamon essential oil. In addition, the cinnamon leaves a light shade on the blond hair.
Recipe masks with cinnamon powder and honey:- 1 teaspoon of any suitable base oil, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 2 teaspoons of honey. Rub into the roots of the hair. By the length of the hair and on the tips you can apply any base oil. Keep up to an hour, depending on the degree of "baking". To wash off with shampoo, it is necessary to soap up 2-4 times.
Nicotinic acid is rubbed into the roots of the hair to strengthen and accelerate hair growth. The effect of nicotinic acid for hair growth is based on its vasodilating action.
Also, to enhance hair growth, it is useful to make peeling with sea salt , use a decoction of fenugreek and Panthenol.
