Hair growth and Hair Oils – how the faster way works
Lets begin with an analogy: Soil is to crops what scalp is to hair growth, just as Fertile soil provides essential nutrients to plants for healthy growth and development, so do scalp to your hair. So taking care of your scalp is the first step you need to take to stop hair loss and make them regrow faster. Oiling of hair and the scalp is an important activity in this direction which involves selection of the right hair oil and the correct way of application. Applying hair oil also has benefits like improving hair strand quality, mind calmness, sleep improvement, headache remedy etc. Oiling of hair serves ancillary purposes as well. It contributes to cure headaches, migraines and relaxation feeling. Hair oiling and massaging improves the blood circulation in scalp and helps to relax the mind. Oiling of hair should be avoided in humid climate, when skin texture of scalp is already oily etc. When long duration of outdoor work is carried out then hair shouldn’t be kept oily as it attracts dust particles that further causes hair fall. Application of hair oil at the night and then washing it with lukewarm water on next day morning helps to improve quality of the hair, prevent early grey hair, promote hair growth, avoid split hair etc,
Tip 1: Want to grow hair faster ? Avoid SLS and Parabens products in the market
This one ranks high on our recommendation list because it can singularly cause irreparable damage to your hair. Remember hair fall control starts with you using safe hair care products. The SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) are harmful substances that cause untold damage to skin and eye and hair. SLS tiny molecules easily penetrate the deep layered membranes of body’s cells. These compromised cells, become more vulnerable to other toxic chemicals that may enter along with the it. SLS is popularly identified as skin irritant and removes natural oil from skin that is needed for its protection. It is also an eye irritant. SLS substance in shampoos helps in formation of lather but it can irritate and inflame hair follicles too. Go for sulfate free products and get the following benefits.
- Reduces chances of irritation development or inflammation of skin and scalp.
- Increases moisture retention
- Retains and improves natural oils
- Retains the hair color in dyed hair
- Prevents the skin and scalp from absorbing the harmful chemicals
Paraben is the chemical designed to prevent the growth of bacteria and give the products a longer shelf life. They are used as preservatives in shampoos and other beauty products. Parabens can be linked to develop certain types of cancers and damage the endocrine glands.
Tip 2: How to apply hair oil to grow hair faster
- Dip fingers in the hair oil, make hair partitions and apply that oil to the scalp. The hair oil should be slightly warm by heating. Adequate quantity of oil should be used. Applying too much oil further needs more use of shampoo. Hence gently massage the limited quantity of hair oil on the scalp with fingertips. If hairs are already oily, do not massage it with more oil.
- Do not rub the hair with hands, as it can break easily. Massaging gently can improve blood circulation in scalp area. 10 to 15 minutes of hair massage is healthy for hair.
- Leave the applied oil on the hair overnight. It is better to leave oil on scalp for longer duration but not more than one day or 24 hours as it starts attracting dust particles and makes the hair weak.
- Oiling the hair at least once in a week should be practiced.
Tip 3: Hot Oil treatment to grow hair faster
Do regular hot oil treatment and head massage for effective hair conditioning. Put some oil in a bottle and heat it by putting the bottle in hot water for an extended period of time (generally for a minute or so), you can message the hot oil treatment into your wet hair. Massage all the oil thoroughly in the hair so that all the hair will be able to be exposed to the hot oil. Rinse in running water and apply shampoo to wash it off. Generally natural essential oils are the best ones to use in hot oil treatments as they can do the best to stop damaged dry and weak hair. People suffering with red colored rashes on scalp, headaches and acidity should not go for opting hot oil treatment.
For regular oil application, Applying hair oil after the hair wash is not advantageous as it may attract dust particles and pollution like smog over hair. But if you are at home and want to apply oil during day time, a minimum of one teaspoon of oil is sufficient. For the cause of hair growth, oil may be applied to the scalp, roots of hair and to the length of hair. Hair care specialists always recommend that you apply hair oil before going to bed and wash it with head wash in the morning.
Tip 4: How to prevent hair damage and help hair grow faster on regular basis
- Avoid exposure of hair to chilly and windy weather, wear cap or muffler or wrap a cloth around your head
- Avoid direct exposure to sun heat especially in summer especially during peak noon times when the sun is blazing
- If your area serves hard water. Try and fix a water softener in your bathroom. Now a days there are ionizer water solutions available in the market
- Certain hair styles like pulling your hair tight into pigtails or cornrows, or hair braid can cause traction alopecia
- Stop using harsh shampoo as they contain chemicals that actually damage your hair. (refer SLS & Parabens below)
- Certain hair dye are known to cause hair loss (Hair Dye containing Para phenylenediamine causes severe allergy leading to hair loss), see the contents carefully and check whether they contain any harmful or banned chemicals
- Did you know that excess use of hair dryer can actually speedup hair loss? Avoid hair dryers and if you use ensure a minimum distance of 1.5 feet from your hair for short duration only
- Nutritional insufficiency – supplement your daily diet with missing nutrients that may be missing from your plate. Eat plenty of fruits and omega 3 rich foods.
Tip 5: How to prevent hair loss during illness or treatment and grow hair faster on recovery
- Extended illness can cause hair loss. Severe infections or chronic illness, high fevers, childbirth, severe psychological stress, major surgery or prolonged illnesses cause “telogen effluvium”, a kind of shock to your biologic program that lead to hair loss several weeks to several months later. If you are sick or recuperating from illness, take tonics to supplement your body with vital nutrients.
- Cancer treatment – radiation treatment (Chemotherapy) is disastrous for hair growth as the treatment kills any new cell growth in the body especially hair follicles and cells in digestive tract. Alternative treatment is now possible in cancer without the side effects
- Medications – certain medications are not conducive to hair regrowth, consult your doctor regarding any current prescription if it is causing hair loss. Medications like beta blockers, retinoids, calcium channel blockers, antidepressants, ibuprofen, coagulants etc are known to cause hair loss. Telogen effluvium which is the most common form of drug induced hair loss is because of anticoagulants. You should always check for drugs that mention hair loss as a side effect and there are plenty of them.
Tip 6: Other natural supplements to hair grow faster
- Use natural juices to strengthen the hair roots. The natural juices of onion, ginger or garlic can strengthen hair. These are popular home remedies for hair fall control and regrowth
- Antioxidants are proven good in hair growth. Usage of green tea bags can be helpful for this purpose.
- Reduce stress and strain. Research has found a direct correlation between body’s ability to regenerate with stress. So relax with music, meditation and socializing regularly .
- Using mint is helpful for hair shine. Boil handful of mint leaves (Pudina in hindi) in water and leave for three hours. Strain the water and use it for the final rinse.
- Amla (Gooseberry) acts like natural conditioner, hence it can be recommended to use hair oil containing amla.
- Turn and bend the head down while shampooing and massage the scalp. This stimulates blood circulation.
- Brush your hair well before going to sleep. It promotes blood circulation and supports better hair growth.
- Eat nuts and seeds as they contain essential fatty acids required for hair growth. Flax seeds are wonderful hair stimulants
- Use a pH balanced shampoo
Tip 7: Yoga shows you how to grow faster hair!
Do Sirsasana Yoga regularly to power up your scalp, this inverted headstand yoga pose does wonders to your hair to stop Hair loss, graying of hair and baldness which are often caused by bad blood circulation in the scalp. Sirsasana directs enriched blood to the brain and to the scalp which helps transforming of grey hair into its original color and ensuring good growth of hair is possible through this practice.
Tip 8: Ensure Scalp Health always
A healthy scalp is crucial to life and health of all your hair roots so that normal hair cycle is maintained. Scalp infections (seborrheic dermatitis) can interfere with hair growth cycles and lead to hair loss. Infections, such as ringworm or hair lice, can invade the hair and skin of your scalp, leading to scaly patches, dandruff and hair loss. If you have a sensitive scalp that is prone to flaking or itching then you stay should away from gels and hairsprays, as these contain high amounts of alcohol which can cause the scalp to dry out and make conditions worse . People often use gels, sprays and waxes to mould their manes, and certain chemicals in them is likely to make you develop an allergic reaction and damage your scalp. Take the shiny scalp Test. If your scalp is shiny, it is caused by a build up of an oil called ‘sebum’, which if not washed regularly combines with dead skin cells, cosmetic styling products (such as hair gel) and other pollutants. This oil layer builds up and gets embedded into the scalp, making it difficult if not impossible to wash out using conventional shampoo methods. This fills in pores around the edges, eventually blocking the pores causing hair follicle miniaturization and leading to hair loss. Oils containing Neem , Jaborandi concentrate (or shampoo containing neem extracts and zinc pyrithione) is recommended to treat hair lice and scalp infections
