Speed up your hair growth up to three to five times its usual rate with this natural selection of ingredients
Whether your hairdresser trimmed your hair a little too short or you just want to regrow your hair faster, think twice before buying chemical-infused hair products.
You might just need to head to your kitchen or nearest grocery store to get everything you need to regrow your hair thicker, faster, and healthier than ever before.
While diet, age, health, and genetic factors all play a huge role in determining your hair growth, Lifestyle selected for you these natural products that might speed up this process:
1 – Cold-pressed castor oil
Castor oil contains vitamin E, ricinoleic acid, and fatty acids such as Omega 9 and 6, which promote hair growth, strength, and shine. It also fights off scalp infections and dandruff, increases blood flow to the scalp, and stabilizes the hair’s PH from any chemical use.
In fact, with castor oil, hair is expected to grow three to five times its usual rate.
Due to castor oil’s viscosity, it is recommended to mix it with olive, almond, jojoba, argan, or coconut oil. Apply it on your hair for 45 to 60 minutes (or even overnight) and rinse off with shampoo. Repeat this process two to three times a week.
2 – Eggs
Eggs are filled with protein that strengthens and repairs damaged hair, promoting further hair growth and shine. With oily hair, it is recommended to use only egg whites, while a whole egg can be used for dry and brittle hair.
You can also mix the eggs with yogurt, raw honey, or other oils and apply it around once a week for 20 to 30 minutes before washing it off with shampoo and cold water.
3 – Onion juice
Squeeze some onion juice and massage it into your hair. Onions contain sulfur, which nourishes the scalp and stimulates collagen production. Onions also prevent hair from greying due to the enzyme catalase.
You can also mix the juice with honey or other oils and keep it on your hair for 30 minutes and rinse off with shampoo. Repeat this process three times a week.
4 – Potato juice
Peel and blend raw potatoes with a little water and squeeze the juice through a cloth or sifter. Feel free to combine the juice with oils, honey, and eggs, and apply the mixture for 20 to 30 minutes; repeat this process every week.
Potatoes also contain the daily hair-nourishing vitamins needed to grow your hair.
5 – Apple cider vinegar
Apple cider vinegar not only restores the PH of your hair, but it also removes hair product residue, which hinders their growth.
Combine one part of vinegar with two parts of water along with some essential oils (to minimize odor), and rinse your hair with it after shampooing. Use this treatment once or twice a week to grow hair faster, stronger, and shinier.
