While there is no magic pill or product that will grow your hair overnight, there are a few things you can do today to start stimulating growth naturally . . . and retain it.
But I have to be clear.
There are a lot of misconceptions about what you can do to grow and maintain healthier hair.
But you can do something about it.
In this article, I will share with you 3 Ways to Boost and Retain Hair Growth.
Do you want to know the three ways?
If you’re looking to jumpstart your healthy hair journey then you need to take a serious look at your protein intake.
Protein is key for hair growth because our hair follicles are made up of a protein called keratin.
When your body is low on protein then you may experience hair loss because of an inadequate supply of protein to your hair follicles. The Journal of Nutrition and Aging states that most people, especially those who live in the United States, aren’t getting enough protein which can impact hair growth and muscle function and strength.
If you’re wondering how much protein you should actually be consuming every day you can multiply your weight in pounds by 0.36. That number will tell you how many grams of protein you need per day.
For example, a 50-year-old woman who weighs 150 pounds needs at least 54 – 68 grams/day or roughly 2oz – 2.5oz per day.
Adding a boost of protein to your diet will help your overall health and help your hair growth and retention.
Here are some foods high in protein:
There is nothing like a good scalp massage.
Whew! It feels so amazing!
It's no secret that the key to healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. One of the things that you can do to stimulate growth is to add scalp massages into your daily regimen.
A study in 2016 showed that scalp massages done daily for 4 minutes over a period of 24 weeks resulted in thicker hair amongst the participants as well as improvement in their alopecia.
Another study in 2019 study found that males suffering from male pattern baldness (androgenic alopecia) saw great results from scalp massage. In fact, 69% of the men in that study saw an improvement in their alopecia after performing scalp massages for 6 months, using a specific massage technique.
The reason this is thought to happen is because massaging your scalp increases blood circulation to your follicles and in return stimulates them and makes hair grow out thicker.
Not to be too scientific but scalp massages dilate the small arteries in the scalp, which increase blood flow to the follicle. When this happens, it prolongs the growth cycle (anagen phase) of the hair.
In addition, this simple exercise helps deliver more nutrients your scalp.
It gets better.
Scalp massages good for your hair but they’re also great for your health. According to research, scalp massages can help lower stress hormones, blood pressure and heart rate!
One of the most important things for healthy hair growth is to get proper nutritions.
There are certain micronutrients (vitamins that you can only get from your diet) that help boost circulation and cell growth, which aids in hair growth.
I am not a doctor so please always consult your hair care professional before making major changes to your diet.
But a few of the key nutrients your body needs to support healthy and strong hair are:
A healthy and well balanced diet is a great way to get the proper amount of these nutrients.
But let's be honest.
If you’re like most people, sometimes it’s not so easy to eat the way you know you should.
In that case, you can opt for a hair vitamin that has many of the essential nutrients listed above like the VoiceofHair Hair Gummies.
