    It can be quite worrying when you look into the mirror one day and see that you have a bald patch at the corner where your hair parting usually is or seeing an increased amount of hair at the drainage each time after you shower. At times, you also start to develop oily scalp and that you look back at your old photos, you realised that your hair now is no longer as thick as before.


    And you start to wonder,


    “Is there a way to make my hair grow faster?”

    “How do I make my hair grow back to what it used to be?”


    In this article we explore some tips and tricks that you can adopt for growing your hair faster and longer.


    About Hair Follicles


    Before we dive into the tips and tricks, it is also important to know that we are all born with all of the hair follicles that we will ever have in our life. That means that we are not able to create more hair but what we can do is to stimulate hair re-growth from our existing hair follicles.


    Keep in mind also that for effective hair growth, you will require a healthy scalp, a healthy body, and healthy hair habits. The tips that we have will be focused on achieving these three!


    1. Find the root of the issue




    Book an appointment with a dermatologist or a scalp care expert to determine the exact cause of your hair thinning and hair loss. Here are some possible reasons:

    1. Abnormal stress
    2. Poor health
    3. Oily scalp
    4. Excessive chemical treatments
    5. Aging
    6. Wrong combing method
    7. Hormones problems


    This is not an exhaustive list, but your expert will be able to help you accurately diagnose the root of the issue by scanning your scalp and understanding your lifestyle habits. When you know the root of the issue, you can then start treating the root for a permanent and more beautiful result.


    2. Massage your scalp with hair tonics




    Just like how we take supplements for our body when we are lacking in certain nutrients or consuming collagen and bird nest for our face, it is also important that we nourish our scalp with hair tonics.


    Hair tonics deliver nutrients to the scalp and reinvigorates hair follicles to lengthen hair life span and reduce hair loss.


    PHS HAIRSCIENCE FEM Fortify Hair Tonic is a powerful treatment tonic that delivers vital nutrients to nourish and strengthen hair roots, thus reducing hair fall. Hair follicles are reinvigorated to support healthy scalp and natural hair growth, helping to keep hair full-looking for longer.


    3. Focus on scalp care – essential for dry or oily scalp


    Oily scalp or dry scalp are a boon to healthy hair re-growth. You may want to relook into your daily, weekly, and monthly hair care regime to ensure that you are loving on your scalp and keeping it healthy and nourished!


    If you are sporting an oily scalp, use a shampoo for oily scalp. When you have a healthy scalp, it is then able to take in nutrients more effectively, thus ensuring any hair treatments that you are doing works!

    4. Eat nutrient rich food


    There have been studies that show that Vitamins B12 and D, biotin, riboflavin, iron, and other vitamins and minerals are essential for healthy scalp and luscious hair. Therefore, it is important that we eat a balanced diet that is rich in these vitamins and minerals.

    To promote hair re-growth and reduce hair loss, incorporate these food in your diet:

    • eggs
    • salmon
    • berries
    • spinach
    • sweet potatoes
    • avocadoes
    • soybeans
    • yoghurt
    • seafood
    • liver
    • red meat
    • beans

    5. Avoid all types of chemical treatments


    To grow your hair in the fastest time, you have to avoid all types of chemical treatments during this period. These includes hair dyes and bleaching, straightening (home or salon), perms, and other heat-related chemical treatments. All these will open the cuticles of your hair strands, weaken your hair bonds and cause them to be brittle.


    Reduce the usage of hairdryers too if you can and let your hair dry naturally.


    The general formula to grow your hair faster and longer is


    Time + Hydration (hair masks and deep conditioners) + Low Manipulation (no chemical treatments, colouring, and tight hairstyles that cause tension to the scalp).


    We hope these tips and tricks will help you to grow your hair to your desired length and volume. And remember: if you are experiencing severe hair fall, go to your doctor to find out what’s really going on inside your body and/ or within your scalp.
