Natural Ways to Get Longer & Healthier Hair

If you’ve ever been on a hair growth journey, you may know firsthand that waiting for your hair to be where you want it to be can be like watching paint dry. The average amount that hair tends to grow each month is between 0.5 and 1.7 centimetres. What you may not know is that there could be underlying conditions that impact hair growing slower such as hormones, genetics, stress, vitamin deficiencies, age, and so much more! Not to worry though, just because you may be dealing with one of these doesn’t mean that it isn’t possible for you to turn the health of your hair around. In this blog post we are going to list some natural and powerful ways to get longer and healthier hair. If you’re ready to whip your hair back and forth like a superstar, keep on reading..

Scalp Massages

One of the tried and true methods to promote hair growth is scalp massages. While many might think that the way to achieve longer locks is piling products on the hair, it really starts with the scalp. The scalp is at the root (literally) of where hair growth begins. The stimulation of blood vessels through massaging the scalp results in more blood flow which in turn helps the hair follicles receive more nutrients and oxygen to grow. Not only do scalp massages assist with hair growth but they also reduce stress, muscle tension, and promote relaxation.

Consume Healthy Fats

Fats have had a bad reputation in our culture for many years, but more recently people are realizing just how important they actually are for our health (we’re talking the good fats here). Some healthy fats that are amazing for you include avocados, nuts, olive oil, coconut oil, and fatty fish! The specific type of fats that just so happen to be the best for hair growth are omega-3 fatty acids which are found in fish like salmon & even foods such as eggs, flax seeds, chia seeds, and hemp seeds. Omega 3 promotes circulation in the scalp and a daily intake of 600mg has been shown to make a difference in as little as a couple of months. If you’re not a fan of eating fatty fish or other omega foods, you can opt for an Omega 3 supplement which we have at NutraChamps and makes it easy to get what you need!

Lower stress levels

As a society, we know very well just how much stress impacts the body in a negative way. Many of us can feel the impact on our health from high stress levels including anxiety, sleep issues, weight gain, and even yes – hair loss. Stress hair loss can look like finding more than normal hair falling out from brushing, washing, or touching the hair. The good news is that in most cases, hair can grow back once the peak of your stress is over. If you’re dealing with an especially stressful period in your life, one of the things you can do to help stress levels is to practice relaxation techniques. Some of these include meditation, deep breathing, and even yoga. 

Get a trim for your split ends

You might be thinking, “how can a trim help my hair grow? Aren’t I just cutting off the progress?” While it might seem this way, getting a trim can actually be super beneficial for a natural and healthy hair growth. When split ends are untreated they can work their way up the the hair strands and cause more breakage to occur at the top of the head. One thing to make sure of is to clearly communicate with your stylist the intention of getting a hair trim. If too much hair is cut rather than just a slight dusting of the split ends, it will absolutely take longer to see the results you want in hair growth. 

Taking biotin or and other high-quality supplements

One of the best ways to promote beauty from the inside-out is through taking a biotin supplement. A shortage of biotin in the diet can lead to brittle nails, dry skin, and even thinning hair! One of our best-selling products at NutraChamps is our high-potency biotin gummies, and for a good reason. We’ve had numerous customers tell us about their phenomenal hair growth experience using biotin! Sometimes in even just one month of taking it they notice that their hair has grown longer than usual. Other vitamins that are great for hair growth include Vitamin D, Zinc, and even Iron! We always recommend getting an in-depth blood test to check out and see if any deficiencies could be at play in why you’re experiencing a lack of hair growth. 

If you’ve struggled with hair growth for quite some time, giving some of these natural hair growth remedies a try might be what you need. As we’ve mentioned, there could be many underlying factors causing hair loss or slow hair growth. It’s important to try and find the root cause while taking care of your hair in the best way possible. Here’s to longer strands!
