Are you sick and tired of short hair?
And Ready to Grow Your Hair
If you are, then this is for you.
Now you’re probably thinking to yourself is it possible to grow my hair overnight?
Yes it can but not inches overnight but being consistent in your regimen it can get there. If you want that “grow an inch immediately hair growth” it doesn’t work that way. Unfortunately, it needs time. But what you can do is get the right ingredients to make it a little faster than your average rate.
Now you might be asking, What if you want it to grow fast in a matter of days?
It’s possible. You need to resort to natural ingredients instead of using the chemically-induced hair growing treatments. What do I mean by that is ingredients that you can pronounce. Below are 3 natural ingredients to make your hair grow fast:
1. Apple Cider
Apple cider is noted to be a great help when you want your hair to grow fast and it’s because of its ability to balance pH level of the scalp and remove dirt, oil buildup, dead skin from hair follicles, and grime in your hair. It can also get rid of the remaining residue on your scalp and hair that came from your hair styling products. As these things hinder the nutrients to be absorbed by the hair and even prevent new hair from growing, apple cider is indeed recommended in order to remove them.
Ideally, you should use apple cider when you are not using your shampoo. You can also apply it after you use your shampoo and conditioner.
How to Use:
Apple cider Mixture
2 tablespoons of ACV
2 cups of Water
Rinse your hair using this mixture. This may have a strong aroma but it will eventually disappear.
Another way to do it is to rinse your hair with an apple cider before you apply your usual shampoo. Combining 1 cup of apple cider with a cup of distilled water, you can make this your hair rinsing natural treatment. After rinsing your hair, pour over dry hair in the shower and start massaging your scalp for about five minutes. Next, rinse your hair using a warm water, then apply your regular shampoo
2. Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is known as a great oil for oily scalps to balance the production of sebum which will minimize dandruff, and acne on the scalp. It contains antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that are helpful when it comes to getting rid of secondary infections that make dandruff and acne get worse.
How to Use:
Lemon Oil Mixture
36 drops of lemon oil
3oz castor oil
2 tablespoon of jojoba oil.
Rub the mixture into the scalp onto the bald/thinning areas.
Side Note: It’s important to get Lemon Essential oil to reap the full benefits of the healing properties versus lemon fragrance oil. Also, if you have low blood pressure it’s best to stay away from lemon essential oil. It’s best to use this oil mixture at night because it’s not recommended to be in direct sunlight for 12-24 hours because it can lighten your hair.

3. Peppermint essential oil
The great thing about peppermint essential oil is that it offers a cooling sensation that when applied on the scalp, the blood flow of the area starts to improve. This is important for hair growth because peppermint oil rejuvenates the hair follicles, making hair production and hair growth a lot easier and faster.
Peppermint essential oil’s cleansing action also helps open up the pores that are already clogged. And thanks to its ability to normalize the blood flow of the skin oils, it can aid even the driest scalp. It also has the ability to get rid of dandruff which is the culprit behind the slow hair growth.
How to use:
Peppermint Oil Mixture
5 drops of peppermint oil
5 drops of lavender oil
2lbs of warm coconut oil
Apply the mixture to your scalp and wait for about 15 to 20 minutes before you wash it off with your regular shampoo.
Just take note that peppermint essential oil may sometimes irritate your skin despite its cooling sensation. For people who have an adverse reaction to plants that belong to the mint family, peppermint essential oil may not be recommended for you.
