Is it Possible to Influence the Growth of Hair?

  • Well if this is not enough then you can change your hairstyle for a short time.
  • One has to not only take care of good nutrition for the hair from the outside but also have to ensure it is effective from the inside.

What should I Eat?

Firstly your food habits must change and not include fast food, sandwiches, fatty food and carbonated drinks including alcoholic beverages. Since these have a negative impact in on your health and consequently on the growth of your hair.

Try to eat more fruits and vegetables which contain a lot of those substances which are essential for hair growth. The diet must include vitamins, minerals, amino acids and much more.

Do not restrict yourself from consuming low-fat meat products. After all, they are also a good source of proteins which help in building our muscles and also the hair. Therefore it is not necessary to give up on them. But this does not mean to intake only greasy fried meat. Because it would have a bad effect on your kidney and liver.

If you don’t know how to grow hair in a week at home then you should consider taking additional vitamin complexes. By taking additional vitamins you will notice how the condition improvises for not only your hair but also your skin and nails. 

Physical Activity:

  • If you have a passive way of life, then hair growth within a week to at least 1 cm won’t be feasible. Since physical activity helps to cleanse the body toxins through the pores on the scalp.
  • When the pores are clean from impurities the skin begins to breathe. The provision of a sufficient number of follicles for oxygen is a major challenge for those who want to grow long hair. Each cell in our body has to be saturated with oxygen otherwise the cells may die. The same applies to the follicles.
  • With the lack of oxygen, suffocation of hair follicles can slow down the metabolism and eventually cause hair fall.
  • So just remember that sports can also cause an additional effect on the state of the hair. Maintain standard consistency in regular activity. By doing this, don’t strain yourself in gym. This will advantage your hair as well as your figure. 

Washing and Drying of the Head:

Remember you cannot grow more than 2 CM of hair in a week if you make any mistakes while shampooing and drying.

For shampooing use lukewarm water since extremely hot or cold water will result in hair damage. Before applying the shampoo it should be diluted in warm water (for ½ cup, 1 tablespoon of shampoo) shake it well and then apply to the hair. And apply this by gently massaging the foam on the hair and rinse it under running water. 

It is not worth it if you do not select the shampoo according to your hair type. It is advisable to use shampoo which consists of 50% natural components and as little as possible content of the various dyes, preservatives and perfumes.

Next, you’ve to make sure to apply a conditioner or balm. It might not be necessary but they provide protection against hair breakage and external influences by creating an invisible film.

After washing your hair it is necessary to dry it. If you do not use any hair dryer for this purpose then it will just hurt. Take a towel and dry your hair by wiping them. Do not rub it extensively.

You can also take another dry towel and wrap it around your head. Walk with it for about 30 minutes and then remove the wrapped towel and comb the curls. Give your hair a break free treatment and let it dry completely. 

Masks Stimulate Hair Growth:

If you are looking for ways on how to grow hair within a week, you should pay attention to the masks which have a stimulating effect.

There are different recipes for masks. Below are few selected one’s which will most effectively help you to increase the length of your hair in just a week to a few centimeters. The most popular and affordable mask for the stimulation of hair is olive oil. You need only slightly heated oil to apply on your hair.

You need to put a warm cap/towel and wear it for several hours. After that the hair should be washed with warm water by a cleansing shampoo that could completely wash of the oil from the curls. 

Another popular mask to accelerate the hair growth is the onion mask. Though it has an unpleasant smell but it really gives good results. During the month of its application your hair grows from 7-8 cm! So with this you can definitely achieve the goals.

Preparation of Onion Mask as Follows:

  • Take one large onion and peel it.
  • Finely chop and squeeze the juice out of it (it can be done through gauze).
  • Mix the onion juice with a tablespoon of heated spoon cosmetic oil in a microwave oven.
  • Apply the mixture on the scalp (you don’t need this distributed on entire hair).
  • Wear a warm cap/towel and hold it for 30 min.

After 30-minutes wash your hair, you can do it in the usual way (with water and shampoo) but because of the unpleasant smell of onion it will be impossible to get rid of it. So if it is necessary then rinse hair with lemon water. Prepare it using 2 tbsp. lemon juice in 1 litre of warm water.

You can also use a mustard mask. Only remember that it can also burn the hair so handle it with some cosmetic oil before applying. Prepare the mask of dry mustard by taking 2 tbsp. of mustard powder and fill it with water. Mix this to form a creamy mass and then apply to the scalp. Put a warming cap or shower cap for 15 minutes. After that the hair should be thoroughly washed under running water and apply conditioner/balm. 

Other Ways for Rapid Hair Growth:

If you do not want to do any mask at home, change your lifestyle and do all of the above recommendations. There is a procedure for hair extensions as well. It lasts for just a few hours but after that you are the owner of long and beautiful curls without making any effort. But, you’ll have to pay which will not be a small sum.

However before you go to the barber for hair extensions, remember that this procedure is not safe for your natural curls if you want to have long and beautiful your hair.

Regularly make a mask, wash and dry your hair properly, exercise and review your diet. As soon as you start to do this you’ll notice the condition of your hair. They began to grow rapidly.
