Accelerating Hair Growth: Tips on How to Grow Hair Faster

02 April 2024
2-minute read

Hair growth can feel like a losing game for many guys across the UK, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In reality, accelerating hair growth may just require a few changes to your routine, including what you consume and how you treat your hair. With that in mind, we’ve put together some top tips that you can implement alongside your hair loss treatment plan. Here are our suggestions on how to grow hair faster.

 

Improve your diet

 

As with most other improvements to your health, the root of positive change can often be traced to your diet. Protein is vital to the structure and health of hair, so eating protein-rich foods can be particularly advantageous for guys looking to encourage growth. Oily fish, eggs and lean meats are perfect examples and are easily implementable into a standard diet.

 

Lentils, chickpeas, peas and beans are fantastic choices if you're looking for veggie or vegan alternatives. It may be common knowledge, but a nutrient-rich, well-balanced diet can do wonders not just for your hair but also for your physical and mental health.

 

Use hair growth supplements

 

Another way to consume some of those vital nutrients is to use a professionally certified supplement. Biotin, taken daily, is a crucial vitamin for growth, helping to strengthen the structure of hair strands  by increasing keratin production. Then there are hair growth complexes that contain vital vitamins such as anagain, marine collagen and vitamin C, all of which can help you on your hair growth journey.

 

However, it’s worth bearing in mind that there is a wide range of hair supplements on offer, and not all of them will live up to expectations. We recommend checking in with your GP for clarification.

 

Be more gentle during hair care

 

This one’s simple: always be gentle with your hair. Whether it’s aggressively brushing or styling, you won’t be doing your hair any favours if you're being heavy-handed during hair care. Hair is particularly vulnerable when wet, so a lighter touch during and after showering can benefit growth. Otherwise, you may damage strands and follicles and inadvertently contribute to hair loss.

 

Guys should also be wary of using powerful hair dryers with a high heat setting. This over-exposure to heat certainly won’t help hair health, especially if a hair dryer is used daily. A lower setting or light towel drying is generally preferable.

 

Regularly apply strengthening shampoo

 

The type of products that you apply to your hair can have a surprising impact on the rate of growth. Strengthening shampoos are an ideal choice, helping to bolster hair quality and thereby encouraging further growth. Many of these products use a nutrient called saw palmetto, which is a natural DHT blocker that can aid in lowering the levels of the hormone in the scalp.

 

There are plenty of strengthening shampoos available, so it can be challenging to know which is most appropriate for your hair. Always ensure that products are certified and contact a professional if you’re unsure.

 

Conclusion

 

As is true with most physical targets, whether that be weight loss or hair growth, time and patience are paramount. Improved hair growth doesn’t happen overnight, but sticking with your treatment plans, using a gentler touch and eating a more nutrient-rich diet can do wonders.
