Things you may do wrongly to your hair that can block the hair growth flow. Hair growth is possible with right care and treatment.


How Fast does Hair really Grow

Hair follicle is a tunnel-like segment of the epidermis that extends down into the dermis. Our human head has about 100,000 hair follicles. As we age, certain hair follicles will stop doing their work, which is why we may experience baldness and hair thinning.

On average, human hair grows at a rate of about half an inch per month, or six inches per year. In total, the growth cycle on the scalp can take up to 2 to 6 years. At the base of the follicle is where the bulb is located where new hair grows. Along with it , the sebaceous gland also contributes to hair growth by producing oil to keep the hair lubricated which promotes healthier hair .

Our hair growth depends on certain factors such as: Age, Hair Type, Overall Health and Certain Health Conditions. There is still a lot to learn on how hair growth is regulated at the cellular level on the body.


Hair Growth Cycle

The three phases of the hair growth cycle are anagen, catagen and telogen.

Anagen is the first phase where the new hair grows in the hair bulb. Then the catagen phase is marked by a period of inactivity and regression. Finally during the telogen phase which is also called the resting phase, the hair follicle will completely rest and the club hair is completely formed. During the first phase, the average scalp has 90 percent of the hair follicles and 1 percent in the catagen phase and the balance 9 percent during the telogen phase.


How to Grow Hair Faster

Now let's get into the focal point of the topic on how to make your hair grow faster. There are plenty of ways on healthy hair growth and below are listed some of them.

F8 Hair Regrowth Treatment

This is a non-invasive treatment that helps with hair growth and maintain scalp health. The low-laser energy and hair growth serum sweeps across the scalp where it stimulates the inactive hair follicles and strengthens the hair papilla within. Not only that, the energy and serum also repairs the capillaries and encourages their microcirculation, which helps to supply nutrients that energize the hair follicles. After the treatment, you will feel the increased hair growth, strengthened hair strands, and reduced hair loss.

Hair Trim

It may sound counterintuitive but know that in order to have long healthy hair having a regular trim is important. It may seem like consuming certain hair growth pills will be a huge help and there's no need for a hair trim. Even if you eat all sorts of vitamins, you should continue to get regular hair trim.

This is because trim helps to get rid of split ends and damaged hair ends that could be messing with your hair growth for a long time. "While haircuts don't make your hair grow any faster, they get rid of split ends that break your hair," explains Michael Dueñas, a celebrity hairstylist based in Los Angeles. The split end can lead to your hair losing length.

You may want to schedule your hair trim every eight weeks or so in general. If you use heat or color your hair often, watch your ends and make sure only to take off what is necessary when trimming. If you prefer at home trim, make sure to gather the information you need and do it yourself.

Have Right Balanced Diet

It may sound like nothing but following a right diet can make major changes to hair growth. Oftentimes, we may neglect this topic but little did we know that consuming healthy nutritious food can help with hair growth. Our body needs energy to grow hair and consuming too little food can interrupt the flow.

Maintaining a high protein diet helps the hair grow quicker. Eating foods like fish, meat, nuts, whole grains and beans will help the hair growth flow. If you are not a meat lover, you can always switch to other protein based foods like tofu, tempeh and whole grains. Lacking proteins in your diet can lead to hair shedding so make sure to include high proteins in your diet.

Vitamins and Supplements

As we know, eating the right diet helps with hair growth and taking the appropriate vitamins and supplements can be an extra boost especially if you are experiencing deficiency. There are few vitamins that is needed such as:

- vitamin A - vitamin C - vitamin E - iron - zinc - omega-3 and DHA

Having low iron can cause anemia which triggers hair loss. Vitamins B and D play an important role in having healthy hair. Consult your doctor to test your deficiencies and consult them on what hair growth supplements you should take.

Apply Hair Oil

It is not something that everybody likes doing but oil is necessarily needed for hair growth. Applying oils like coconut oil, or amla oil helps to promote hair growth. Remember before using oil on your hair it is safe to do a patch test to make sure you do not have an allergy reaction later on. Below are the certain oils that can help with hair growth process:

- Amla - Coconut - Rosemary - Castor oil - Sunflower - Mineral

Oil's significant role is by protecting hair from regular wear and tear. Oiling hair regularly can reduce the dryness of hair as well as swelling of hair. Oils also helps in protecting the hair follicle by filling the gap between cuticle cells.

It is recommended to oil the hair daily. But it is not possible for some people so oiling the hair once or twice in a week also seems to be a good enough option. Sometimes you can leave it overnight or an hour as a hair mask. This helps by extracting the nutrition from the oil.

What Shampoo you are using

Using the right shampoo can be a huge help for your hair health. There is a lot of information about what kind of shampoo you should use for your hair but the secret is keep it simple. How often you shampoo your hair has a direct effect on your hair health.

"Shampooing your hair two to three times a week allows your natural oils to penetrate your hair, allowing it to hydrate and repair itself," explains Ken Paves, a celebrity hairstylist in L.A. It is recommended to choose shampoos that labeled as thicker and fuller looking hair.

Over shampooing can affect the natural oil production in the hair. This can result in drying out your scalp where it causes dandruff, flakes and an itchy scalp. Another effect of over shampooing your hair can be split ends. Your hair will become more prominently frizzy and dull. So try not to over shampoo your hair.

Topical Protein Treatment

As we know from above, protein is crucial for hair growth. It is best to get protein from diet rather than on hair growth supplements. Protein is also known for protecting hair from chemical and environmental damage.

If you are someone who often uses heat to style your hair, using a protein treatment can help to protect it. There are some collagen-based creams for dry hair which can be used after shampooing to hydrate and strengthen the hair. There are many products online and you can choose the one for you.

Keep Conditioning

Conditioning your hair after shampooing is important for hair growth. Oftentimes we may ignore it without knowing its importance. Using a hair mask or leave-in conditioner can be a massive help on your hair growth journey.

Consider using conditioner every time you wash your hair as it helps to moisturize your hair which can help to plump the hair shaft. Not just that it does make your hair look better and easy to manage. If you have healthy hair, just apply it to the bottom of your hair to avoid weighing down.

Massage you hair regularly

Massaging your scalp can help to increase blood circulation to your hair follicles, which is the base for healthy hair growth. While there is no magical oil to grow your hair in a day or in a month, massaging regularly can help slowly. Pairing with the right oil for the hair massage can be even more effective in promoting hair growth.

A scalp massage involves gentle pressure using hands or massaging devices which applies directly to the scalp. Doing an occasional massage can help to boost hair thickness. You can also consider traditional massage, which can be really relaxing and helps to lower your stress hormones.

- Hormone changes - Lack of protein in body - Stress - No proper care of hair - Family history of hair loss - Fast weight loss - Taking several medications - Undergoing chemotherapy

When to see a Doctor

When you are facing extreme damaged hair, reduced hair growth and any other major changes to your hair, you should be addressed with a doctor. If you are facing severe hair loss, you definitely need to consult a doctor as certain health conditions can be a reason for hair loss. In those cases, treating the main cause can help with your hair regrowth. Consulting a doctor can help you figure out the root cause for your hair issue as well as come up with a treatment that is suitable for you.


Tips for hair growth

- Wash your hair only once or twice in a week to keep your scalp clean. - Take necessary hair supplements. - Have a well balanced diet to promote healthy hair growth. - Get regular hair trim.



To have faster hair growth, it totally depends on you. There are many steps that you can always follow and maintain. The only thing is that you need to be persistent and consistent with your effort. Even though genetics is one of the causes there are some other factors as well. So taking the right steps can help with your hair growth.

Remember to have healthy hair habits and a healthy diet. Try to use certain products and undergo certain treatment that can help you as well. If you are facing severe hair loss and having difficulties in growing your hair, get professional medical help to restore your hair.


Which hairstyles promote healthy hair growth?

Hair styles like braid, space bun and low ponytail can help with your hair growth and may even help to prevent damage to your follicles. There are certain hairstyles that can cause damage to your hair like tight ponytails and bun. Reduce pulling and tying your hair too tightly. Avoid using any tools that cause stress for your hair roots.

How can I increase the density of my hair?

Even though you can't change the amount of hair follicle you have, you may naturally help to increase it with proper treatment and care. Taking proper care can help to restore your hair density. Alternatively, hair transplantation such as a follicular unit transplant (FUT) or follicular unit extraction (FUE) can increase the density of your hair.

Is hair loss permanent?

No. It is a temporary condition and with proper care and treatment, hair regrowth is possible. This is why seeking medical help and getting properly diagnosed is important so that the root cause can be treated as soon as possible. But in some cases, hair loss can be severe and chronic. So be patient in treating your hair loss.

Is it normal to lose 100-150 hairs per day?

Yes. On an average rate everyone loses some hair every day. Losing up to 100 hair strands everyday is normal and it does not mean that you are getting bald. Our scalp has around 100,000 hair follicles which are producing hair at all times.
