How to Grow Hair Fast Naturally

Most of us are obsessed with beautiful long beach wavy hair that we have pictured in our minds as the perfect hair! How do we grow out hair like that, long and beautiful? Did you get a short haircut, and now you'd like your hair to be long again? There are plenty of ways to encourage it to grow in thick, healthy and strong as quickly as possible. Massaging your scalp and applying special hair treatments can help your hair grow in. Eating a well-balanced diet is essential for fast hair growth, too. Finally, make sure you take good care of your hair to prevent damage from occurring.

Massage your scalp. 
Massaging any part of your body improves circulation by increasing blood flow to the area, and your scalp is no exception. When you massage your scalp, the increased blood flow stimulates your hair follicles to grow. Scalp massage is a simple technique for helping your hair grow in healthy and fast.
  • Try massaging your scalp every time you take a shower. Use the tips of your fingers to gently rub your scalp in a circular motion. Be sure to cover the front, back and sides of your head.
  • Repeat the process as often as you like. It has the added benefit of reducing tension and helping you feel calm.

Rub your scalp with essential oils. 
Certain essential oils have been shown to help stimulate new hair growth. Increase the benefits of your scalp massage by working in a small amount of essential oil. Pour five to ten drops of oil over your fingertips and massage the oil all over your scalp. Try one of these essential oils:
  • Peppermint, which improves circulation.
  • Tea tree oil, which soothes the scalp and helps improve dandruff.
  • Lemon oil, which promotes healthy hair growth.

Do an oil conditioning treatment. 
This serves the dual purpose of helping promote hair growth and keeping the hair you have strong and soft. Coconut oil, almond oil and castor oil are all though to help hair grow in thick and strong. To do a conditioning treatment, follow these steps:
  • Wet your hair and massage one to two tablespoons of oil into your scalp for five minutes.
  • Run your fingers through your hair to distribute the oil from your roots to the tips of your hair. You can also use a wide-tooth comb.
  • Cover your hair with a shower cap and let the oil soak in for one to two hours.
  • Shampoo your hair as normal. You may have to wash it twice to remove excess oil.

Make a restorative hair mask. 
If your hair is dry or thin, treating it with a nutritious mask can help restore its luster. A restorative hair mask may not help your hair grow quickly, but by protecting the hair you have, it will keep you from having to trim off split ends and take a step backward on your journey to having longer hair. Here's how to make a hair mask:
  • Crack one egg into a bowl and beat it lightly.
  • Mix in two tablespoons of plain yogurt and one tablespoon of honey.
  • Apply to wet hair and let it sit for 20 minutes.
  • Shampoo your hair as normal to wash out the mask.

Use a boar bristle brush. 
This is a special type of brush made with natural fibers that closely resemble the texture of human hair. It is used to pull sebum, the natural oil secreted by your scalp, all the way to the tips of your hair. This protects your hair from roots to tips and keeps it healthy and strong. Here's how to use one:
  • Place the brush against your scalp and rub it back and forth to massage your head and pick up your natural oil.
  • In one long stroke, pull the brush from your roots to the tips of your hair. Keep stroking the same section of hair until it looks glossy and smooth.
  • Continue this process section by section until you have massaged your entire scalp and brushed out all of your hair.
  • Make sure you get a boar bristle brush. This doesn't work with plastic or metal brushes.

Finally, a ponytail idea that's geared toward anyone with a lob. Gather your hair into a low ponytail, but leave two sections out on either side. Grab each section, and tie a knot so that it's centered over your hair elastic. Wrap each end around the elastic and bobby pin underneath. 
long, long hair. don't care.

Behold, the easiest ponytail hack ever: Make a ponytail, then separate the hair into two sections above the elastic, and feed the end of your ponytail through the hole. Easy, right?
