1. Take prenatal vitamins
Most prenatal vitamins contain a vitamin supplement called biotin, which is known to promote healthy hair, skin and nail growth. In fact, a lack of biotin is often associated with hair loss. Certain foods, like peanuts, almonds, tomatoes, carrots and romaine have high amounts of biotin.
2. Treat yourself to a massage
Scalp massages increases circulation, which in turn stimulate your hair follicles to be more receptive to nutrients.
3. Frequent trims aren't needed
Whether you cut it or not, hair grows an average of 1/4 inch every month. Trimming the ends of the hair doesn't do anything since the follicles in your scalp determine how fast and how much your hair grows.
4. Drink soymilk
Protein is one of the key building blocks of hair. Soy contains essential fatty acids and isoflavones that help promote hair growth.
5. Eat spicy food
Eating more spicy food increases your intake of capsaicin, the chemical that makes peppers spicy. It has been known to encourage hair growth by mimicking natural human growth factors.
6. Brushing hair rigorously doesn't lead to growth
Instead of increasing circulation that leads to hair growth or distributing the hair's natural oils for a sleek shine, brushing can actually cause friction on hair, leading to cuticle damage and breakage.
7. Reduce stress
Easier said than done, but engaging in a relaxed and healthy lifestyle that cuts out unnecessary stressors further promotes the body's restorative properties that stimulates hair growth.
