Hair growth is dependent on multiple factors, including many out of our control; age, health, genetics, hormones and more, and unfortunately there is no magic potion that is going to genuinely grow your hair faster (medical issues aside). 

However, hair and scalp health, along with general well-being play major parts in ensuring your hair doesn’t fall out before it can even grow thanks to damage as well as looking after the skin on our scalp so all of the good stuff can get to our follicles. 

Some helpful tips to promote hair health include: 

  • Avoiding bleach and damaging treatments – Step away from the bleach and dye and try to give your hair a break from the chemicals in order to allow the cuticles of your hair to stay tight and healthy. 
  • Eat a well-balanced, nutrient-rich diet – Possibly the greatest tip is to ensure your diet consists of foods packed with vitamins, protein, fatty acids and iron to ensure all of those good things make their way to your follicles. 
  • Get a trim – Seems counterproductive but split ends will continue to split and will eventually damage your hair so much the whole strand will break. Try an inch off every 3 or so months to get rid of those split ends. 
  • Avoid tight hairstyles – Look to protective hairstyles like loose plaits, braids, rolls or throw it up in a claw clip. 
  • Try topical treatments – If you’re really concerned with your hair growth or loss then best to head to your GP or dermatologist and see if they have recommendations for topical treatments to help.
