I don’t know about you, but natural hair has always won me over. Whichever length your hair is, when you embrace it, the hair serves you well. Moreover, there’s nothing so fulfilling than watching your hair grow long and healthy naturally.
The moment you learn to make your locks work for you, there will be nothing to scare you. However, unless you have the Asian bone straight or wavy hair, natural hair growth calls for patience. It also needs you to use the right products.
Unfortunately, this generation is more concerned about things happening fast. That’s why you will notice there are many supplements out there posing as the easier route to growing the hair quickly.
It’s not a surprise that the hair extension business is booming because women want quick fixes. If the hair can’t grow as fast as I want it to, I can as well wear the extension. But if you are patient, you will soon see the results.
The Hair Growth Cycle
Since you want to know everything about hair growth, you should know the phases in the hair growth. Hair is unique just like any other part of our body is. It’s vital for both genders, appearance. It also works to transmit the nerves vital information.
By the time a fetus is 22 weeks, the hair follicles form. By the time the baby is born, they have about 5 million hair follicles. A million of the follicles are on the head. Additionally, on average, you should have at least 100000 hair strands.
Notice that you won’t have new hair follicles regenerating in the course of your life. Five million is just enough.
The hair follicle
Before we go into the growth phase, what is the hair follicle?
Your hair has two structures that depend on each other. The hair follicle and the hair shaft.
The hair follicle resides in the skin, but the shaft then extends outside. It’s a segment of the epidermis that goes down and into the dermis. This follicle has layers that are responsible for the different functions.
Papilla: this one is at the base of the follicle. It’s the part that has the capillaries and other tiny blood vessels. The essence is to nourish the hair cells.
Bulb: this is the living part of the cells. Now the bulb cells divide every 24-72 hours. The cell division is quite fast.
The sheath: you then have two sheaths of the hair. There’s an inner and outer sheath that surrounds the follicle. The essence of these two is to shield and form the growing hair shaft.
The sebaceous gland: this is another critical layer of the hair as it nourishes the hair with the right oils. The essence is to produce the sebum, which then secrets the natural oils. To keep your skin and hair nourished.
Generally, your hair grows at a rate of a half-inch per month. The hair follows four stages to grow.
Anagen phase – growing phase
To begin with, this phase will last anything between 2-7 years. So, at this stage, your hair will grow to between 18-30 inches. For the Asians, this phase takes just a little bit longer. Their hair can grow to 1 meter. Notice, this is the phase that will determine the length of your hair.
Catagen – the transition phase
When the hair reaches the end of the first phase, it goes to the transition phase for ten days. In this case, the hair follicle shrinks, and it then detaches from the dermal papilla.
Telogen – resting phase
This is the part where the hair comes to a rest for about three months. The hair begins to fall out as other shafts go to the new phase. Notice that all your hair shafts are independent. They go through the different stages on their own.
Exogen phase- new hair phase
Here the old hair sheds and the new ones begin to grow.
Expect to shed about 100 hairs a day. During this phase, you will experience more shedding. While these are the four phases your hair goes through, with a simple alteration on your life, the growth phase you interfere with.
For example, if you experience illness where your body is subjected to rapid medication like chemotherapy, you will expect to lose the hair. Stress and change of diet can also cause a difference.
So, with this description, you know why the hair changes within seven years. The shafts and strands are all at different stages of the cycle.
Tips to Hasten the Natural Hair Growth
You don’t need magic to aid in the growth of the hair. You need to change the lifestyle here and there.
Keep the scalp healthy and clean
Some people think that in not cleaning your scalp, you help it grow, but that is not true. If the scalp is dirty, you block the pores from releasing oil to nourish the hair. Also, when your scalp can release toxins in the form of sweat, thus interfering with the growth.
Never neglect the scalp as that will quickly lead to conditions like alopecia, dandruff, and acnes. Of course, if you have natural hair, especially the curly one, you don’t have to shampoo it every time.
But whenever you clean the hair, you should use a cleanser or clarifying shampoo. This helps to get rid of the product build up.
What products are you using?
Whenever you go out to buy hair products, you should be watchful. You don’t need products that drain the hair of its nutrients, thus making it weak. I would advise staying away from sulfate, artificial fragrance, and paraben shampoo.
If you can go for natural oils like avocado oil, argan oil, and coconut oil, the better.
Use protective styles but sparingly
Of course, protective styles aid in the growth of the hair because it shields it from the environmental effects. Wigs and other hair extensions are great, but you should let the hair breath after using them.
This means that you reduce the tension that is caused by the hair extension to the hair. Remember if you strain the hair a lot, you will still experience hair loss.
If possible though you can use styles that don’t stay on the hair for longer periods. Also, you should opt for styles that call for less manipulation of the hair.
Eat healthily and exercise
With the right meals and nutrients to the body, the hair will grow naturally. Remember your body needs the right nutrients to help in the healthy growth of the hair. Also, drink enough water to wash away toxins from the body.
Generally, exercise is essential. It makes the heart pump blood normally to all parts of the body, including the hair follicle and cells.
Eat a lot of the iron packed foods as this will help keep your hair healthy and growing other than shedding. Find foods that deliver irons.
Fatty acids: growing up I believed that omega 3 was that drug supplement given to kids and it tasted terrible. Today, I know that not only is it essential for brain development but also other factors in the body like hair growth.
How to Grow the Hair Naturally
Like earlier mentioned, there’s no rocket science you need to help in the growth of the hair. But you need to do the following for the rapid growth of the hair.
Co-wash the hair
This is also called the condition washing the hair. It helps to ensure the hair is clean yet packed with moisture. It will further keep your hair shaft soft and easy to comb and style. This is ideal for those who have fragile hair as it will strengthen them.
Notice that, although you co-wash the hair you will need to shampoo it every so often. In fact, you will need to use the clarifying shampoo to get rid of product build up. Remember to use the right shampoo that doesn’t strip the strands of their nutrients.
I would co-wash at least once a week. This is because I don’t want to over-moisturize my hair.
The essence of deep conditioning the hair is to make sure even the low and high porosity hair is moisturized. Conditioners have a pack of moisture which is like the soul food for your hair. You should do this weekly.
You can even use the home remedies for conditioning of the hair. Apply your favorite deep conditioner then cover it with the plastic cap and sit under a dryer for 5-10 minutes.
This will help to open the cuticles and thus let the moisture through. Notice that if your hair is dry, you can use the hot oil treatment. The oils will help to seal the moisture because most oils are sealants themselves.
Trim trim trim
You don’t want to trim your hair, but the truth is that the split ends will stop the hair growth. If you let the hair stay on with the split ends you will have broken strands and eventually lead to hair loss anyways.
So, you want to know why your hair doesn’t grow past a certain level? It’s because it reaches a certain point and it has so many split ends which cause stagnation.
Trim the hair to pave the way for healthy growth. And trim the ends frequently.
How do you detangle
I don’t know how you detangle the hair. Although, you should spray the hair with detangling sprays or water before you start the process. This is because dry hair will break more if you start to detangle it.
Some people encourage you to detangle the hair when you have just washed and applied the conditioner. I often suggest doing it before washing. Begin by sectioning the hair then use the detangling spray on it. Next, use a wide-toothed comb to comb it from the ends to the roots.
During the process, you ought to maintain gentleness to avoid rapid hair loss. You can even use the detangling brush for the procedure.
Reduce the use of heat tools
For ages, we have trusted in hot tools. But they are not suitable for you, especially if you intend to keep the hair natural. They usually cause extreme damage to the hair. For this reason, if you are looking to grow the hair fast, you will need to air dry the hair.
Sometimes it’s unavoidable, especially when you want a style that you can only achieve if you use the hot tools. Only use hot tools when it’s inevitable. And even when you use the hot tools, make sure you use them at the lowest temperature.
Protect the baby hairs
I know it’s almost normal to notice that you shed a lot of baby hairs. The reason for this is that the baby hair is often the finest and softest. Therefore, you should employ methods to keep them shielded.
Adopt a regimen and commit to it
There’s nothing that will help to grow the hair than when you have adopted a regimen then decide to work with it. Commitment will help to grow the hair. If you commit to the regimen, the hair will respond by growing pretty fast I guarantee.
Use leave-in conditioners at times when you don’t intend to go through the whole long process of conditioning it. Bottom line, keep the hair nourished, clean, hydrated and moisturized.
Natural Home Remedies for Hair Growth
Of course, the hair is the crown of your beauty. This means that whether you want to grow your hair or the hair has gotten weak, you can use the following home remedies. You don’t need to spend a lot of cash because some of these products you may already have.
I think for those who were born in an area where coconut grows, we have heard the song a thousand times. Coconut oil is right for your skin and hair. Aside from that, it’s perfect in the food too. But do you know why this happens?
Coconut is rich in irons, potassium, and other fats. Some people use fresh coconut for even better results. Grate the coconut then add a few drops of lemon juice. Massage this mixture on the hair and scalp.
Cover it with a shower cap for about 4-5 hours, then rinse it off.
If you like to use the oil instead, apply the oil all over the hair and then cover it for the 4-5 hours, then rinse it off. Alternatively, you could use it the same way you do with the leave-in conditioner.
Apple cider vinegar
This one is essential in the hair care industry. There’s no other gentle cleanser that cleanses the scalp then lets it maintain the PH balance. This then aids in rapid growth. To use it, dilute it in the water. You can use 75ml in one liter of water.
For the application though, you can apply it after you have washed the hair and rinsed it thouroughly. In the end, you get rid of the product build up and add more shine to the hair. Most importantly, it helps in the growth of your hair.
Egg mask is great
This one works great for quick natural hair growth. So, the hair needs more protein to help in the growth of the hair. Eggs have a pack of proteins. The proteins are essential to the growth of new hair.
Other ingredients essential to your hair and found in the eggs include zinc, phosphorus, selenium, and iodine.
It’s easy to make the mask; add the egg white to a bowl then add a teaspoon of olive oil to the egg white. Make that paste then apply to your hair and scalp. Let it rest for 20 minutes. Go on to rinse it off with cold water and shampoo.
Think of the oldest remedy you will ever think of, and this is it. The onion has sulfur, and that is essential in the boost of the collagen formation in your tissues. This will help in the regrowth of the hair. The good thing is that its smell will go away once you rinse it.
Crush the slices of onions then apply on your hair and let it rest there for about 10 minutes. If you need 20 minutes, it’s okay. Finally, rinse it off with the help of a mild shampoo.
The Indians are known for their beautiful hair. One of the products they use is amla. The fruit is rich in nutrients needed in your body. It enhances hair growth. You can mix amla juice with lime juice and apply it on your hair then let it dry on the hair.
Finish off with rinsing it using warm water.
If you have been in existence in this century, you must have heard of the essence of aloe vera. The foundation of thriving companies like Forever living is based on the aloe vera. The benefits of using aloe are massive.
But here we are interested in the essence of aloe to the hair. It works to soothe your scalp, thus preventing hair loss and enhancing hair growth.
You won’t have dandruff with this product, and you will have the hair growing rapidly because the scalp is breathing. Apply it on your hair a few times a week.
For the hair growth stimulation, you will need a scalp massage, and this you can do at home. With proper massage, you allow for adequate circulation of blood. When the blood is properly flowing, you will have the hair growing rapidly.
This helps to add nutrients to the follicles. Use the best oils like rosemary oils for the process.
How Long Does the Hair Take to Grow?
It’s not easy to answer this question. This is because the hair grows in phases. Mind you; different strands are at different stages. The most important question to ask is whether you can maintain the length of the hair after it has grown an inch or two extra.
In this case, the hair regimen matters as it will determine whether you keep the hair length or not. So, it balances the actual hair growth and length retention to maintain hair growth. Generally, the hair at the growing phase grows at a rate of a ½ inch per month.
So do the math, if say you are maintaining the hair well and thus retaining the length, it’s going to take you two years to grow the hair to 12 inches. So, the question of concern is how to maintain the length of the hair.
All the tips and pointers above will help to retain the length. Therefore, patience is needed to grow the hair longer. On average, within a year, the hair will have grown to 6 inches.
How to Tell If the Hair Is Growing Longer but Also Healthier
You can’t have the hair growing longer if it’s not healthy first. So, they go hand in hand. Below are the pointers to indicate that the hair is growing rapidly.
Does it look shiny?
Even without you applying the oils or spray, does your hair look shiny in whichever color it comes? This shows you that the hair is healthy and growing. For me, this is to say that the natural oils that are from your scalp are spreading well to all the strands.
No more broken hair on the floor
You will know that the hair is compromised if you notice that whenever you go showering you have a lot of your hair remaining in the bathroom sink. But if you don’t have more hair in the bathroom, it means that the hair is healthy and growing.
This also happens when you brush it. You will notice just a few strands when you brush the hair. That will tell you that the hair is now healthy.
The increase in length is noticeable
You can tell that your hair has grown. Last you checked, it was at the ear lobe level, but today it’s at the shoulder level. In fact, it won’t take you long before you can tell that the hair has grown. Four weeks can show a difference in the length.
No more tangles and dryness
You will notice that the hair has no knots anymore. Tangles often indicate unhealthy hair, but if you have manageable hair, then the hair is growing. Moisturized hair will rarely tangle so focus on moisturizing and hydrating it.
No split ends
You have been trimming off the split ends, thus keeping it healthy. When you look at the ends you only see healthy strands. It’s not also damaged as you would expect. For this reason, it has retained the perfect shape.
Your hair elasticity
It’s normal to stretch the hair, especially for those with curly hair. However, weak hair will break when stretched to the limit. If the hair is healthy and thus growing, you can stretch it as far as you wish.
You notice that the hair is retaining the moisture
It’s easy to tell if your hair is retaining moisture. You can use the float test to confirm its moisture retention ability. If it floats to the middle level, the hair is healthy.
Do You Need Hair Supplements for Growth of The Hair?
As we had mentioned earlier, we are a generation that loves quick fixes, unfortunately. Supplements are thriving because we want a quick fix. But while some people argue that the supplements work, I’ve never been a fan of them.
One common supplement is biotin. Doctors today are questioning the effectivity even though the public believes it works. In fact, there’s no direction on the safe amount to consume to help with hair growth.
For this reason, most naturals are consuming a lot of the products to grow the hair rapidly fast. But, did you know that even if you consumed a lot of the biotin, your body can only absorb a certain percentage?
The remaining biotin consumed is a waste and may adversely affect your body. The good thing though is that the excess vitamins will be flushed out. Notice that biotin is just a vitamin B which you can find in most foods as you will see below.
It hasn’t been proven that biotin is the only solution to rapid hair growth. I would say it’s essential for you to apply a holistic approach that will keep the hair healthy.
But Then Why Is Biotin Still Famous?
You know social media is the reason for the popularity. And like I said we like quick fixes. Therefore, we believe that it works. So, we will keep buying it. We see biotin as a savior for our hair.
The best method to use for hair growth is to blend several things. You can only do it when you have conducted active research.
The Best Nutrients for Hair Growth
Since you are so interested in hair growth, it’s crucial to know the vitamins that will aid in the growth.
Notice that all your body cells will need vitamin A for growth and division. So even your hair cells need the vitamin. This vitamin is further ideal for making the skin glands to secrete sebum. You all know that it’s essential to moisturizing the hair scalp, right?
Take vitamin A in right amounts to avoid hair loss. You will find it in sweet potatoes, pumpkins, kale, spinach, and my all-time favorite carrots.
You will also find it in milk, eggs but also cod liver oil is excellent.
Biotin you go for is available in the vitamin B. Research on the essence of the biotin to hair growth is still underway. Vitamin B helps in the recreation of the red blood cells. Red blood cells function to transport oxygen to the hair follicle and scalp.
Find whole grain foods, leafy green veggies, meat, fish, and almonds. This is to say that vegans can use supplements for the same.
It’s hard to prevent the free radicals if you don’t have the vitamin in the body. It acts as an antioxidant that protects you against the damage caused by free radicals. The body uses vitamin C to make collagen, which is very important for your hair structure.
Find it in strawberries, guavas, peppers, citrus fruits, among others.
If you have ever developed alopecia, you must know this vitamin. When you lack it in your body, then alopecia will be knocking at your door. It’s said to help in the recreation of the new follicles. It helps in the production of your hair.
You will find it whenever you bask under the sun. Other foods to eat include fish, mushrooms, and cod liver oil.
This is a great antioxidant and is known to get rid of oxidative stress. Using it will help to protect hair loss or even grow the hair afresh when you experience hair loss.
Get it in the sunflower seeds, avocado, spinach, and almonds.
The essence of iron is the massive production of red blood cells. Luckily, you can access iron when you use spinach, whole grains, red meat, eggs clams, and lentils, among others.
The essence of zinc on hair growth is that it will help in your hair tissue growth and repair. If you are losing hair, odds are that you lack zinc.
You can find zinc in pumpkin seeds, lentils, beef oyster and wheat germ.
The structure of the hair contains keratin protein, so anything that will add more protein to the hair is welcomed. Ensure you consume enough protein.
In a nutshell, therefore, if you can use the food instead of supplements for hair growth, you will be safer. Because, in the process, you also nourish the body of the essential nutrients it lacks.
Supplements are best used by those who are already deficient of the nutrients, and they need a quick fix.

What to Avoid When Growing Your Hair
As a naturalist, you have some things that you should stay away from to make sure your hair grows, and it does so rapidly.
Stay away from heat
This is a song you must be tired of hearing even though it’s the truth. Any heat tools that you use to style the hair should be kept away. In fact, if you frequently use heat and you are wondering why you keep losing the hair, you have the answer now.
Whichever styles you choose to make, don’t tighten the hair so much. When you tighten the hair, you make it susceptible to breakage. I mean you will weaken the strands eventually. Be gentle when styling the hair. Besides, who wants to develop headaches from tightening the styles.
Avoid harsh chemicals
Even the products you buy may have harsh ingredients. You should never purchase such as they will damage the hair. Go for all the organic products instead. Check your hair dyes and shampoos you use to make sure they are safe to use.
Without a doubt, stress causes too many problems to your body, which includes hair loss and stagnant hair growth. Handle your problems quickly to avoid the effects of stress.
How Do to Retain Your Hair Length?
We have said it again that the only way to have the hair growth is through making sure you maintain the lengths. This is because the growth process is natural if you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Use styles that don’t need too much manipulation. Remember in styling the hair frequently you won’t be free of hair breakage. Avoid those styles that require you to comb the hair every so often.
Know how to comb the hair. Start from the ends going all the way to the roots and be gently through the process.
Use a wide-toothed comb, especially if you have hair that tangles a lot. If you use small toothed combs, they will pull you strands leading to damage.
Maintain your scalp and hair cleanliness. If your scalp is clogged, there won’t be more growth, and eventually, you will weaken the strands. Keep the hair free of unnecessary dirt.
Will the Protective Styles Grow My Hair?
Protective styling is great, but they won’t grow your hair. The hair grows naturally to about ½ inch per month. The only thing it does is help you retain your length if you use the right procedure. Also, you must take care of your hair when it’s under the protective styling.
The reason for retaining the length is that you no longer style your hair as frequently.
The growth length of your hair is infinite right?
I know most people base this question on the fact that those with dreadlocks can grow their hair so long. That isn’t correct because the only reason why dreadlocks can grow so long is that through mating, they keep even the hair that would have already fallen off.
However, some women can grow their hair to a high level and below. Sometimes it goes beyond the products you use. In fact, I have seen a lady with very long hair check the video below.
Will working out make my hair grow faster?
Exercise is essential for everything in our bodies. For the hair to be healthy and grow, you need to exercise a bit too. If you hate exercise, you don’t have to go through the pain. Instead, take part in an enjoyable activity for you and thus activate the body cells.
It forces you to sweat, and therefore, you release all the toxins from the system. Exercise helps your heart to pump blood to all parts of the body that includes your scalp, thus enhancing growth.
Does heat make your hair grow faster?
I would relate this to the warmer temperature. Notice that, when the temperatures are high, the hair, flowers, and literary almost everything grows and blooms. This is due to the ease of blood circulation in the body.
When there’s increased blood flow, there’s an increase in the blood that reaches the scalp. This means that the nutrients are delivered fast, thus enhanced growth.
Does braiding the hair make it grow fast?
Well, braided hair is just a protective style so it will help to retain the hair length but not really to grow it.
Does the hair grow fast after a big chop?
The only thing it does is make you get rid of the split ends. The split ends to stop the growth entirely and make it look unhealthy. When you chop the hair, it makes it appear healthy and voluminous. However, your hair still usually grows.
