For months now, I have been impatiently waiting for my hair to grow longer. As hard as it may sound, growing hair is really a slow process – no shortcuts, and definitely no instant hair growth. On the brighter side, there are ways that might aid in growing hair a little (take note, this is literally just a little) faster than usual. Constant research has helped me come up with list of possible ways, of course.
During my research, I came across these remedies more than a couple of times: protein-rich diet, exercise, enough sleep, trimming hair regularly, vitamins, supplements, suitable shampoo, conditioning, scalp massage, coconut oil, hair growers, avoid caffeine, avoid stress, avoid hair spray and blow drying, and many more. Obviously, these are the most common means to speed up hair growth. I thought my research was complete, considering I’m equipped with the most common piece of advises from people who have personally tried doing and practicing these things, until I came across a quite appealing and unique remedy: MSM hair growth?
Fine, maybe I was wrong to say it was appealing. Apparently, what is MSM in the first place? Maybe curiosity has led me to read more about this MSM hair growth, because I want to know what MSM means and how this could help increase hair growth, aside from those usual things that I have read.
MSM means methy-sulfonyl-methane, a naturally occurring sulfur compound in the body and in certain foods such as milk, coffee, tea, and vegetables. So what does sulfur do for our hair growth? MSM is supposed to help us build collagen, one of the most numerous proteins in our body responsible for a supple hair. It also maintains structural protein, and form keratin protein which makes the structure of the hair. Studies show that MSM has helped increase hair growth to as much as fifty percent more than usual. Now this is a really huge growth considering the average growth hair can have in a month!
It makes me wonder, is MSM hair growth for real? Of course, I am still in doubt at the moment because as I have said, I know there are no shortcuts; there are no instant ways. Maybe MSM could help but not to such extent. But the real answer to this I have yet to discover. What is important, another option has been added to the list on how to make hair grow faster.
