That’s why we can definitely claim that hair define a personality of a woman or a girl.

Longer hair looks really pretty but unfortunately, most of the girls cannot get a long hair look even after trying hard for it. And the next thing we see is a new haircut, compromising on short hair as a result of utter disappointment. I know most of you would be having the same question lingering in your mind that what makes your hair to not grow fast or what makes your hair to fall even if you are doing everything right as it should be. The answer to this most asked question is that we tend to have a perfect hair routine, doing everything accordingly, but actually, this is not the case. We might be doing something wrong or we might be doing something to our hair that is perfectly fine according to us but according to the experts, it is not. Or we might be missing something that is essential for the growth of hair. To clear out all these confusions we are here to pen down a few hair growth tips that can effectively increase the growth of your hair.

Do’s and Don’ts according to hair growth tips

Before moving on to the tips to grow hair fast, we should be discussing the do’s and don’ts related to our hair. First of all, you should keep this thing in your mind that there are two factors that affect the growth of our hair. One is the genetic factor that is very much related to the genes of the hair trait that are inherited from our parents. The second factor is the proper intake of diet nutrients. It is very important to keep a proper check of your diet, you should consume vitamins, proteins, fats and carbohydrates everything in a proper quantity as it should be. Side by side, you should also be drinking a lot of water because water is an essential element that carries out many functions of our body and thus stimulates the growth of hair.

Also, keep in mind that there is no need to wash your hair every single day. This can severely damage the follicles from where hair grows. If you have this concept in your mind that washing your hair daily provides a glamorous shine to your hair then I’m afraid that you are totally wrong! Shampooing only removes the dirt and oil from your hair. But yes, if you want a sleek and shiny look then you should make it your habit to use conditioner every time you wash your hair. But again remember this thing that you should not shampoo every single day.

Another thing that we mostly do with our hair is the styling either by straightening, curling or blow drying them. Any of these things, when done to the hair, can reduce the growth. Moreover, you should never comb your hair when wet. Combing wet hair can result in the breakage of hair so you should always brush before washing them when they are completely dry.

Also, it is an extra advice to cover up your hair with the help of a scarf whenever you go out because a scarf works as a protective layer between your hair and the surrounding impurities in the form of dirt and smoke. It also saves you from the direct exposure of sunlight that seriously affects the hair follicles making it impossible to get longer hair. You should also avoid excessive swimming because a small amount of chlorine is added to the swimming pools in order to clean them and chlorine is not good for your hair as it hinders the growth of your hair.

Hair growth tips that include hair masks

1 .    Oil mask

Oiling the roots as well as ends of your hair is very important. Cover up your hair with the oil mask that should be used at least one a week. Always try to focus more on the ends of your hair because the hair near your scalp are newly grown whereas, the ones that are towards the ends are much older and need more care.

2 .  Aloe Vera and honey mask

Aloe Vera has a number of nutrients that can benefit the growth of your hair. Therefore, you can prepare a mask by adding Aloe Vera gel into a small amount of honey and apply it to the roots of your hair. Leave it for about 2 hours and then wash your hair. If you keep on applying this mask then you’ll probably get longer hair in a very short time.

3 . Coconut oil mask

By applying a mask of coconut oil and massaging properly for some time can increase the growth of your hair. You can also add milk for extra benefits as milk contains a number of proteins.
