15 Simple Tricks To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Such long and lustrous hair. It is dream that most have and it is not unachievable.

Whether you are suffering from hair growth problems or envious of the long and shiny locks of your favorite movie star or want to get out of a disastrous haircut, we have the best solutions for all these hair issues!


The Science Behind Hair Growth

1. An average human has 1,00,000 hair follicles, each of which produce 20 hairs in a lifetime.
2. Each of our hair strands undergoes 3 stages: Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase.

About 90% of the hair on your scalp now is in the growth phase or the Anagen phase which usually takes around 5 years.

During the Catagen phase, the hair follicle shrinks. This happens to 1% of hair strands and takes about a month’s time.

And finally in the Telogen phase, the hair rests or falls off. This happens to around 10 – 15% of the hair strands and this period last upto 5 months.

3. The rate of hair growth varies from person to person, but the average rate is about 15 centimeters or 6 inches per year.

4. Each hair strand completes its cycle and wears off. A person loses about 50 to 100 of hair strands per day. On the day when you wash your hair, you end up losing up to 250 strands. But if you lose more than this range, you suffer from severe hair fall problem and should consult a dermatologist.


Causes Behind Hair Fall

1. Genetics:

Genetics is one of the major causes of hair fall. Studies show that 60% of the people inherit the problem of acute hair fall. And sadly there are no treatments to cure hair fall caused by heredity. However you can take care of your mane to delay the process and make it healthy and shiny.

2. Improper Diet:

A healthy diet is very important not only for our body, but also for skin and hair. Our scalp cells needs proper nourishment and nutrition. People who follow low protein diet can suffer protein deficiency which leads to massive amount of hair shedding. Deficiency of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can cause hair fall and thinning of hair.

3. Prolong Diseases:

Hair loss caused due to diseases or illness is mostly temporary.It is cured once the body returns to good health. Typhoid, flu, fungus infection on the scalp (ringworm) etc causes hair fall.

Thyroid imbalance is another condition which leads to temporary hair fall, as both underactive and over active thyroid glands is responsible for hair loss. However it can easily be cured by proper medication from the physician.

4. Stress:

Our present day lifestyle has long working hours and a hectic schedule and stress is the subversive effect. Our scalp cells, like other body cells, need relaxation and rejuvenation. Therefore practice yoga and meditation to reduce the effects of stress and thus reduce hair fall.

5. Cosmetics:

Use of chemical laden cosmetics causes severe hair fall.These chemicals clog your scalp pores by forming a layer over it. Most of the shampoos and conditioners contain harsh chemicals
