Activities that can help a person's hair grow longer include eating a diet rich in protein, taking proper care of the hair and massaging the scalp to promote blood circulation to the hair follicles. It is also a good idea to occasionally trim dead hair.
Protein-rich foods that can strengthen hair include yogurt, eggs, meat and quinoa. An individual can also grow out longer hair by avoiding chemical hair treatments and over washing the hair, since doing so strips essential oils from it. Hair should be handled with care and not often arranged in a ponytail or bun, since doing so can cause it to break.
