Are you looking to supercharge your hair growth? Perhaps you were given a bad haircut or you cut it yourself and can’t wait to put an end to your shame. Maybe you just miss that one time your hair was long enough to choke you in your sleep, a love/hate kind of relationship (like how we love Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible but dislike him in Scientology). At any rate, here's some sound advice on how to grow hair faster.
First and foremost everyone endures varying degrees of stress. The power of stress can have devastating effects on your entire body. It’s common to experience hair loss when we’re stressed out. To keep growing that hair and stay healthy in general we all need to live as stress free as we can. I’m no Dr. Phil so you can look up ways to do that on your own but my favorite way is a Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA.
Vitamins support healthy hair growth in a huge way. Supplements such as keratin, biotin and collagen peptides are a good addition to a healthy diet. These are available over the counter. The alphabet collection of vitamins are readily available over the counter as well if you aren't eating a well balanced diet and the best part is you may see results in as little as a few weeks! While all vitamins help, there are a few that are heads above the rest (see what I did there?).
Vitamin A is essential for the growth of all cells in the human body. Since your hair is the fastest growing tissue in (and out of) the body, it makes sense not to skip this one! Vitamin A also helps create the oil your sebum glands create to help keep your hair and scalp healthy. The best way to get vitamin A is actually to eat foods that get turned into vitamin A like spinach, pumpkin, carrots or sweet potatoes.
Vitamin C is our next contender. The antioxidant properties of vitamin C help fight off free radicals. What are free radicals (sounds like a sweet band name)? Free radicals are unstable molecules. They lack an electron and are on the hunt to steal one to balance themselves out. Once they find a stable molecule and take its electron (one of yours!) a cascading effect takes place leaving many damaged molecules behind. Our pomade contains vitamin C in the D-Limonene ingredient (orange peel extract). These free radicals come from UV rays, cigarette smoke, pollution, even inside our bodies. In addition, Vitamin C also helps produce collagen, an important protein of hair structure. Vitamin E has a similar effect in protecting your hair from free radicals.
Lastly, not to understate their importance, low levels of Vitamin D have been linked to alopecia, another form of hair loss. Although it’s not proven 100%, vitamin D, in healthy amounts, has been shown to help produce new hair follicles. Iron helps red blood cells deliver oxygen to different parts of the body to assist growth which also aids in hair growth.
I hope this helps anybody looking for answers. Of course there are other methods to be considered that are still awaiting peer review or proper testing like red light hats and voodoo witchcraft but that’s on you guys to decide!
