6 At-Home And Effective Ways To Boost Hair Growth

Team Interns , 13 Feb 2019

Long, shiny hair is hard to achieve for some people and can take a ton of efforts. Most people spend a fortune on different hair spas and treatments at a salon, hoping it would boost your hair growth. However, by taking care of your hair and giving it time, you can get hair like Rapunzel! This can easily be achieved right in the comfort of your own home. So, if you want hair like a Disney princess, following the steps below will definitely do the trick!

1. Scalp Scrubs

If you want to boost your hair growth, focusing on your scalp’s health is key. Scalp scrubs are great for removing build-up, oil and flakes, improving blood circulation, thereby facilitating hair growth. They should ideally be used once a week and can even be made at home. A great DIY scalp scrub can be made by combining equal parts of sea salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Simply massage the scrub on your damp scalp and shampoo and condition as usual after.

2. Hair Oils

Yes, your grandma was right about oiling your hair! Hair oils work super well for boosting hair growth, adding shine and luster, and strengthening the hair follicles. However, all oils don’t work for all types of scalps. People with oily scalps should use a light oil with antibacterial properties such as a rosemary or lavender hair oil. Similarly, people with dry scalps can go for hydrating oils such as argan and coconut hair oil.

3. Superfoods

There are a number of superfoods that strengthen hair from within and help it grow at a faster rate. A few of them are eggs, sweet potatoes, spinach, avocados and walnuts. So, if you want super long and healthy hair, including these superfoods in your diet, is a must!

4. Use Silk/Satin Pillowcases

If you’re wondering why your hair is always frizzy and dry, your cotton pillowcases might be the culprit. Cotton pillowcases are known for absorbing the oil from our hair, which can lead to frizziness, breakage as well as brittleness. Switching to silk or satin pillowcases can make a huge difference to your scalp and hair and hence boost your hair growth.

5. Hair Masks

Hair masks that are suited to your hair type can boost your hair growth by a lot. You can use a store-bought mask or even better, you can make a DIY hair mask with ingredients right from your kitchen. They are a great way of unwinding during the weekend and giving your hair some much-needed TLC.

6. Use A Weekly Anti-Residue Shampoo

Due to oils, shampoos, conditioners and serums, our scalp can get clogged with residue which results in slow hair growth. An anti-residue shampoo, such as the one from Neutrogena, can be used once a week to effectively cleanse the scalp of any build-up and hence boost hair growth.
