Internally With Hair Growth Supplements

You can also take a multivitamin or other hair growth supplement that contains collagen, iron, zinc, magnesium and biotin. Choose high-quality supplements that have safe ingredients. Avoid toxic chemicals and look for naturally derived ingredients.

Vitamins and minerals that are specifically targeted toward hair growth help rebuild your hair follicles. This allows them to open and grow hair and hold onto it better when it has grown. Although hair cells divide faster than any cell in the body, they do not receive the same nutrition as the rest of your cells. In fact, they receive it last, probably because these cells are not required for life.

Therefore, supplementing your nutrients and vitamins gives your body enough vitamins and minerals to get all the way to your hair cells. Your hair growth and quality will both increase.

Topical Hair Serum

Strong, healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. However, color treatments, tension, extensions, product buildup and over-styling with heat do more than damage your hair. They damage your scalp too. Therefore, you should find ways to improve your scalp condition, including using a hair growth serum. Even adding a humidifier to your room can help.

For example, you may try a pre wash oil treatment and use a moisturizing shampoo that is gentle on the scalp. You can also allow your hair to go a day or more without washing. Add cleansing oils, such as castor oil, tea tree oil and peppermint essential oil. These oils will stimulate blood flow while cleansing your scalp and fighting bacteria.

Check to see if you have fungus, and treat it with a mask or shampoo that doesn’t have sulfates. You can wash with this shampoo at least once per week. Also, avoid going to bed with wet hair because this promotes fungal growth.

You should also consider scalp massages. They improve your circulation and draw the blood up to your scalp, healing it and creating stronger follicles. Although you can try the hair massagers on the market, you can also use your fingers. Just bend down toward your feet, so the blood flows to your head easier, and massage your head for at least five minutes a few times every week.

Dietary Changes

Your diet has a direct impact on your hair growth. Healthy hair requires biotin, zinc and protein, among other vitamins and minerals. Therefore, avoid sugar, processed foods and fast food. Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. Drink more water.

You also need foods with essential fatty acids, such as fatty fish, flaxseeds and their oils, chia seeds, walnuts, soy products and canola oil. Include B6-rich foods, such as bananas, spinach and potatoes, along with B-12 foods like meat and dairy products. Folic acid is found in vegetables and fruit, especially acidic fruit like tomatoes and citrus. Don’t forget whole grains, lentils and beans.

If you are still wondering how to regrow thinning hair, contact your physician and check out the reviews on your hair growth products.
