While hair typically grows at a steady rate of 1/2 inch every month, home remedies, grooming and diet can promote hair growth in men. While the hair may not grow faster, men can keep the length and avoid the awkward growing-out phase of their hairstyle.
The first step in growing hair out as quickly as possible is keeping both the hair and the scalp healthy. A healthy scalp promotes hair growth, and healthy hair means keeping that growth. One option is to massage a warmed hair oil into the scalp and pull it through to the ends of the hair. This conditions the scalp and hair as well as promotes circulation to the hair follicles. Another option is to use products targeted at hair growth, such as Hair and Mane shampoo and conditioner. Massage the conditioner into the scalp to receive the circulation benefits.
Hair needs to be trimmed regularly to help avoid the awkward phases. Get 1/4 inch trimmed every six to eight weeks. If the man has a target hairstyle in mind, he should have his hairstylist start cutting it toward that result, even when it is not long enough yet.
A diet filled with lean protein, omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins also promotes healthy hair growth. Eggs and fish are good sources of protein and omega 3s. Another option is taking vitamins formulated for hair growth that contain B vitamins, vitamin C, cysteine and biotin.
