Hair, like skin, is always a reflection of your own health. If the mane grows normally (on average about one to 1.5 centimeters per month) and shines healthy - without hair loss or dandruff - the metabolic processes behind hair growth and the regeneration of the scalp are in balance and function perfectly.
If, on the other hand, there are more split ends, the hair grows noticeably slowly or feels particularly brittle, a physical imbalance is often the cause.
Slowly growing hair or even hair loss can have many causes. The physical include, for example, iron deficiency, a hormone disorder such as thyroid disease, or simple malnutrition. All of this leads to the hair root becoming undersupplied, growth stagnating, or hair falling out.
But also external influences often destroy the dream of the long mane. Pollutants in the air, too frequent washing with aggressive shampoo, or too frequent coloring of the hair put the hair roots into a kind of shock paralysis.
How do you find out what is to blame for the slow-growing hair or the hair loss? A doctor should absolutely rule out malnutrition, hormonal disorders, and other diseases. Often a chain of causes is to blame.
If you support the growth of your mane in a natural way, you don't even have to worry about slow-growing hair. Hair grows faster with these natural beautifiers:
All vitamin B complexes support fast and healthy hair growth: they stimulate the activity of the metabolic processes at the hair roots, prevent micro-inflammation in the skin and ensure a healthy scalp. All guarantees for a long mane.
In addition: Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, boosts thin, brittle, and dull hair and even prevents hair loss.
Vitamin B suppliers in the diet include legumes, whole grains, egg yolks, oatmeal, nuts, and mushrooms. Alternatively, you can also use dietary supplements.
In addition to seven B vitamins, the preparation from Cosphera also contains vitamins C + E as well as zinc, selenium, millet seed, and green tea extract, L-cysteine, and MSM. All important micronutrients in the fight against hair loss or thinning and slowly growing hair.
Vitamin A also called retinol, ensures that hair looks strong and shiny. The reason for this lies in the hair roots: the vitamin is necessary for fat synthesis in the follicles there and stimulates growth properly.
Eggs, milk, and dairy products are full of vitamin A. An alternative of these is the vitamin A precursor beta-carotene. It is found especially in green, yellow, and red vegetables and fruits.
Vitamin C is more than just an immune booster and is rightly called a universal vitamin. The ascorbic acid supports the binding of iron to the red blood cells. The result: the hair roots are better supplied with iron and oxygen. This ensures that your dream mane will grow without any problems.
The right foods: The vitamin can also be found in citrus fruits, but in particularly large quantities in paprika, broccoli, or in sea buckthorn juice.
Not only the nails benefit from the trace element zinc, but also hair growth: Zinc activates the energy metabolism in the scalp. This increases the supply of nutrients to the skin and hair root cells. In this way, the speed of hair growth is also optimally exploited.
Pumpkin seeds, linseed, nuts, corn, and eggs are particularly rich in zinc.
Tip: Dietary supplements combine several minerals and vitamins for faster hair growth in one product.
Healthy hair growth starts with the scalp. Because only if their sebum production is intact can hair grow healthy and strong. If it is not in balance and produces too much sebum, for example, the hair regreases more quickly and dandruff can occur. In addition, the irritation can affect hair growth.
A deep cleansing shampoo, which removes any deposits from the scalp, helps against increased sebum production, which can be traced back to styling residues, dirt, or silicone. Ordinary shampoos often fail here. In the case of fine, greasy hair, it is recommended to use it once a week.
If you have no problems with your scalp, you can still use a detox shampoo once a month to cleanse it of styling residue and sebum.
For the other hair washes, a mild shampoo without aggressive ingredients is recommended. It's best to choose one that is tailored to your needs.
Don't forget the conditioner after shampooing! In this way, you avoid split ends and provide the hair with important nutrients and moisture. But please only distribute in the tips, the conditioner has no business on the base because it would only mess up the sebum production.
Nourishing masks (once a week) are also essential for long hair. Moisturizing aloe vera and rich argan oil care for the hair structure and protect against hair breakage.
Special oils can also act as an intensive mask in the hair. Mentioned argan oil, for example, as well as castor and coconut oil. The vitamin E contained in argan oil strengthens the hair roots and thus helps prevent hair loss.
In addition, argan oil has an antibacterial effect on the scalp, which has a positive effect on hair growth. Thanks to its omega-6 fatty acids, castor oil can promote hair growth, rich coconut oil ensures a fuller and more even hair structure and prevents split ends thanks to the vitamin complex it contains.
Caffeine stimulates the scalp, which stimulates blood circulation and thus also hair growth. So special caffeine shampoos are a good choice. But care products with the coenzyme Q10 are also suitable for healthy hair growth. They activate the formation of keratin, the main component of hair.
It is best to alternate special agents with ordinary shampoos every time you wash your hair.
Beauty tip: The M2 Hair Activating Serum works with a highly potent active ingredient complex including caffeine for more hair density. At the same time, it extends the hair growth phase and delays hair loss. To do this, you should spray the serum onto the cleaned, towel-dried hairline once a day and massage it into the scalp with your fingers.
According to the results of the study, the first changes can be seen after six to eight weeks. The maximum growth potential is reached after around 16 weeks.
Whether with your fingers and shampoo or with massage brushes - a careful pressure massage stimulates the blood circulation in the scalp. This supplies the hair follicles with more nutrients and the hair grows back faster and healthier.
For the scalp massage, you can also use the aforementioned oils for rapid hair growth.
Cutting tips may not accelerate hair growth, but it does keep the hair healthy and does not break off. The head of hair should therefore be shortened a little every ten weeks.
Let the hair air-dry more often, do not rub it with the towel when it is wet, just dab it off, and do not tie it tightly together as often. All of this can cause permanent damage to the hair structure and thus promote hair loss. The best thing to do is to switch to a microfiber towel especially for your hair, which we already know from the curly girl method.
