Eggs contain iron, sulfur, zinc and other nutrients that encourage healthy hair growth. To make an egg mask, beat a whole egg in a small bowl. If desired, you can add a few drops of essential oils to give it a nice scent. Apply this mixture to your hair, let it sit for an hour, and then shampoo your head with a mild shampoo to remove the egg. If you don't like the idea of putting egg in your hair, you can try a scalp massage instead. Apply warm castor or olive oil to your head, use your fingers to rub your scalp for 10 minutes, and then use plenty of shampoo to degrease your hair. The oil nourishes your scalp, and the massage promotes circulation, which may make your hair grow faster.

When you are under a lot of stress, your body releases a hormone called cortisol, which may inhibit hair growth. Reduce your stress and cortisol levels by engaging in daily meditation, keeping a regular sleep schedule and getting plenty of exercise.

Protein is the material from which your hair is made, so making sure you include enough in your diet helps your hair to grow longer and stronger. Some high-protein foods to include in your diet are eggs, chicken, beef, nuts and fish.

Regular brushing is very good for your scalp, since it improves circulation and distributes your natural oils through your hair. Spending 1-2 minutes brushing your hair every day and massaging your head gently while brushing helps hair grow faster. Remember not to brush your hair while it's wet, since this leads to damage.

Potato juice contains nutrients that help your hair grow faster. To make your own potato juice mask, run two large potatoes through a juicer, and mix the juice with 1 tablespoon of raw honey and one egg yolk. Apply this mixture to your scalp, and let it sit for an hour before shampooing your hair like normal. If potato juice does not sound appealing to you, use essential oils instead. Warm some jojoba oil, olive oil or coconut oil in the microwave until it's lukewarm, and then massage it into your hair. Let it work for 15 minutes, and then shampoo your hair thoroughly.
