Grow hair faster by trimming the hair regularly, eating healthily, massaging the scalp and handling the hair with care. On average, a healthy person's hair grows about 1/2 inch per month, which equals about 6 inches of hair growth a year.
Having a healthy diet is one of the most important factors in hair growth. The body uses amino acids to grow hair. Diets that are high in proteins such as eggs and dairy products are great for people who are trying to grow their hair faster. However, don't consume only meat or other proteins because the lack of other nutrition can actually stunt hair growth.
General hair care is also important to encourage hair to grow faster. Minimize the amount of chemicals used in the hair, and avoid the overuse of heat treatments such as blow drying or using flat or curling irons. Avoid washing the hair every day, because washing hair daily strips it of the essential oils that help stimulate growth. Wash your hair two or three times a week at the most. Wash your hair in warm water only because hot water dries out the scalp, making hair dry and brittle. Have your hair trimmed regularly to keep it healthy and encourage further growth.
