Contrary to many people’s believes, it’s very well possible to stimulate and accelerate natural hair growth.
Of course, there are not any miracle solutions that will allow you to grow long hair within days or weeks, but there are many things you can do to improve natural hair growth.
Unfortunately, your genes play an important role in hair growth and these are factors that can not be influenced and changed.
Some people are just lucky to have very active hair follicles, others are not so lucky.
If you belong to the second group, you shouldn’t worry too much either, because there are still many effective ways to improve natural hair growth and to get long, healthy hair.

So, let’s have a look at what you can do:
Keep a balanced diet:
Certain vitamins and minerals are known to promote natural hair growth.
For example, vitamin B and especially vitamin B3, B5 and B6 play a crucial role in hair growth.
Make sure, your daily supply of these vitamins is sufficiently high. If that is not the case, you can either substitute the lack with a more balanced diet or by taking nutritional supplements.
A severe lack of vitamin B complexes can even lead to hair loss.
Other important vitamins are vitamin A, C, and E. For example, vitamin E improves oxygen intake and stimulates blood circulation.
Apart from the vitamins mentioned above, there are also several minerals that play a crucial role in natural hair growth.
The most important ones are calcium, iron, magnesium, silica, copper, potassium, selenium and zinc.
Drink enough water:
Water helps your body to get rid of various toxins and chemicals that may lead to hormone and enzyme imbalances and inhibit natural hair growth.
You should drink a minimum of 8-10 glasses of water a day. If you don’t like pure water, you can also add some syrup or lemon juice.
Do regular scalp massages:
This leads to improved blood circulation and stimulates hair growth.
I recommend you do a short 5-10 minute scalp massage once a day.
Massage your scalp firmly in a circular motion with the tip of your fingers.
As already mentioned, this increases the blood flow to your hair follicles and helps natural hair growth.
Use only quality products for your hair:
Avoid shampoos and conditioners that are full of chemicals and fillers.
The most expensive products are not necessarily the best ones. You can even make 100% natural hair shampoos and conditioners yourself.
That way you will get much higher quality products for less money.
Shampoos that are full of chemicals often lead to dry, porous hair and they can significantly inhibit natural hair growth.
I also recommend you get some natural hair growth products that contain herbs, essential oils, and vitamins to allow your hair to grow faster.
Make sure, the product you are buying contains essential oils and not just natural extracts.
These products are a bit more expensive, but they are also much more effective.
A good natural hair growth product should contain several of the following ingredients: aloe vera, citrus fruits, jojoba, rosemary, and sage.
