How to grow long hair: Tips and Techniques

Have you ever dreamed of having long, luscious locks? Do you find yourself envying those with lengthy hair and wondering how they do it? It's no secret that long hair can be a sign of beauty and femininity, but achieving and maintaining it can be a challenge.

Hair growth is a natural process that varies from person to person. Genetics, age, and lifestyle factors can all play a role in how quickly and how much your hair grows. While some people may have a genetic advantage when it comes to hair growth, there are still ways to encourage and promote healthy hair growth.

If you're looking to grow your hair longer, there are a few secrets that can help. From dietary changes to hair care techniques, there are several things you can do to encourage healthy hair growth. In this blog, we'll explore some of the effective ways to grow long, healthy hair and how you can incorporate them into your hair care routine.

How to grow your hair faster and stronger?

Want to know how to help your hair grow faster and stronger? While genetics do play a role in healthy hair growth, there are other factors to consider. Don't worry, there's no magic potion for instant growth, but there are steps you can take to prevent breakage and promote growth. Curious? Check out these 13 tips that may help your hair flourish!

Protein intake is crucial

Did you know that your protein intake can affect your hair growth? If your diet is too restrictive, your hair may not grow as well and you might even experience shedding. So, what can you do to promote healthy hair growth? Eating a well-balanced diet with at least 50 grams of protein per day is recommended. So it's important to keep an eye on your protein intake for the sake of your locks!

Look for caffeine in your hair care products

Want to give your hair a boost? Try using caffeine-infused products! We all know caffeine can give us an energy boost, but did you know it can do the same for your hair? Several researches show that caffeine in shampoos and conditioners can prevent hair loss just as well as drug-based treatments. How? By stimulating the metabolism and proliferation of cells, promoting hair growth. So, next time you're looking for a hair product, consider one with caffeine in it!

Essential oils for hair growth

Essential oils not only smell amazing, but they might also help with hair growth. If you're looking for other essential oils that might help prevent hair loss, peppermint oil, jojoba oil, and lavender oil. So why not give them a try?

Nutrients rich diet

Certain vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids are crucial for your overall health and can even help promote hair growth. Some of these important nutrients include biotin, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, zinc, iron, and omega-3 and omega-6.

Research has shown that people with alopecia areata, an autoimmune hair-loss condition, tend to have lower levels of vitamin D, folate, and zinc. But don't worry, there's hope! A 2015 study found that taking omega-3 and omega-6 supplements for 6 months can potentially protect against hair loss in people with female pattern baldness. So, make sure to get your daily dose of these essential nutrients for healthy, luscious locks!

Scalp massage to nourish your hair

Scalp massages can help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, leading to stronger, less damaged hair. So, whether you decide to get a professional scalp massage or try a do-it-yourself massage at home with Ningen Gooseberry hair oil or Ningen Onion hair oil, it's worth giving it a shot and seeing if it helps improve the health of your hair.

Avoid over washing your hair

While it's important to keep your scalp clean, washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural oils and cause damage. Aim to wash your hair no more than every other day, or even less frequently if your hair is dry or damaged. If you have oily hair, try using a dry shampoo in between washes to absorb excess oil. Try Ningen Onion hair shampoo enriched with onion extracts, soya extracts, and thyme flower extracts. Its unique blend of micro nutrients and antioxidants work together to reduce hair fall and accelerate hair regrowth. 

Avoid heat styling tools

Heat styling tools, such as curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers, can cause damage to your hair and prevent it from growing long. Whenever possible, let your hair air-dry and avoid using heat styling tools. If you must use heat styling tools, use a heat protectant spray and keep the temperature as low as possible.

Brush your hair with care

Brushing your hair too vigorously can cause damage and breakage, preventing your hair from growing long. Use a wide-tooth comb or a brush with soft bristles to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots.

Trim Your Hair to prevent split ends

Trimming your hair regularly can help prevent split ends, which can cause damage and prevent your hair from growing long. Aim to trim your hair every six to eight weeks, or as needed, to keep it healthy and prevent breakage.

Protect Your Hair from the Sun and Environmental pollutants

The sun, wind, and other environmental factors can cause damage to your hair, preventing it from growing long. Whenever possible, wear a hat or use a scarf to protect your hair from the sun and the elements. Use Ningen chamomile hair serum with the goodness of rosemary, chamomile, onion and amla to nourish and protect your hair from environmental pollutants.

Check ingredients of your shampoo

Always check the ingredients on the bottle of your shampoo. Your shampoo should be using a gentle, naturally based cleanser and avoiding harsh ingredients like SLS and SLES, parabens, and silicones. These ingredients can clog your hair follicles and sabotage your hair-growth plan. So, opt for effective yet non-stripping formulas. Use Ningen Tea Tree Anti hair fall shampoo or Ningen Onion hair shampoo formulated with natural ingredients to nourish and protect your hair from breakage.

Use a microfiber hair towel

The twisting, tension, and fabric-rubbing on wet hair can cause damage. Instead, try using a gentler microfiber hair towel and blotting instead of rubbing. If you have curls, you might want to try the cotton T-shirt plopping method.

Time to make a low ponytail

High-tension styles like tight ponytails can cause damage over time. Opt for something gentler, like a low ponytail. And don't forget to use gentle ponytail holders, like silk scrunchies, to keep your locks happy and healthy.

To cap it all,  growing long hair takes time and dedication. By following a healthy diet, taking care of your scalp, using natural hair care products, avoiding heat styling, being gentle when brushing your hair, trimming your hair regularly, and protecting it from the sun and the elements, you can promote healthy hair growth and achieve the long locks you desire.
