There were more than just once instance in my life when I had my hair cut short and in just a matter of hours, I realized I want my long hair back. Funny as it may seem, I believe most women experience this mind-changing situations with their hair condition especially because women are known to have immense passion and affection for their hair. They tend to experiment on their hair, because they want to achieve the best hair style that will fit on them. I admit; I am not an exception to this matter.
What do I do when faced with this kind of scenario? I’ve done researches every now and then to make sure I get the most positive outcome I desire. Before, I thought speeding up hair growth could become something like a magic that I can achieve in just a matter of short time. Over time, as my knowledge and experience have been deepened and expanded, I realized that speeding up hair growth is not a matter of an instant thing, rather a process that requires one’s patience and proper care.
Commercial products for speeding up hair growth may be quite of help, but I believe the result varies from a case to case basis, and the actual length of growth is not as promising as most advertisements and package labels try to imply. Among the most popular products that I have encountered either personally or through research are Sulu Max Gro by Shapney and Mane n Tail shampoo. Although these products offer a variety of benefits to speeding up hair growth, we must always be aware and careful of the side effects and down sides as well. Intensive processes like hair extension are now at hand but these may cost someone big bucks without the assurance of achieving the real quality and quantity of hair their desire. Side, of course, from the fact that such process may be painful especially to those who have low pain tolerance level.
Personally, I recommend more practical and more natural means of speeding up hair growth. Proper diet is a classic example. Because our hair is mainly composed of natural protein, make sure to include protein-rich foods in your daily diet to help growth speed up. Good sources of protein are cottage cheese, yogurt, and beans. Iron-rich foods such as dark green leafy vegetables and eggs are also good enhancers of hair growth. Avoid caffeine as much as possible. Caffeine causes dehydration that makes it hard for our system to trash out unnecessary substances in our body, including in our hair, that stunt hair growth. Trim hair regularly, especially if split ends are present, split ends usually travel up to hair roots, slowing down the process of the hair growth due to damages and breakages. Have a regular scalp massage. Use natural oils such as coconut oil when doing the massage to moisten the scalp and hair follicles for a more productive root that will stimulate hair growth. Simple as they sound, these ways do not only benefit our hair, but our health condition in general.
