In normal conditions, our hair grows at an average rate of 1.7cm (0.5 in) every month. Hair growth is controlled by our genes and follows a natural cycle of growth, resting and shedding. Though it’s not really possible to make your hair grow faster, there are many things that you can do to ensure that you are not impeding growth or inadvertently causing hair loss.
A healthy scalp = healthy hair
Irritation, inflammation and flaky skin on the scalp can prevent the follicles from functioning at their best and impact on how fast your hair grows. Take good care of your scalp by using products that contain gentle ingredients and getting prompt treatment for conditions such as dandruff.
Vitamins and minerals for healthy hair
If your hair is looking dull, is prone to breakage and seems to be growing more slowly than usual, take a look at your diet. Our hair follicles rely on a steady supply of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to produce hair at a regular rate and maintain its condition. Eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, meat and dairy products will help to supply your body with the right nutrients. You can also supplement your diet with Vinci Hair Clinic’s Vitruvian Line vitamin and mineral complex.
Prevent styling damage
Though healthy hair is surprisingly resistant to wear and tear, it can be damaged over time by rough treatment. Heated styling tools and chemicals often leave strands looking frizzy, with a dry texture and tendency to breakage. Many women who wear heavy extensions often develop bald patches or thinning as their hair is pulled out by the root. You can reduce the damage by using heat-protection products and regularly varying your hairstyle to minimise the strain on your follicles.
