6 Tips to Help Hair Grow Faster Without Spending a Dime

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at DePauw chapter.

Periodically, every 2-3 months, people go to get their hair done to have a new, youthful look. If you like the hairstyle and it suits you, it’s great. However, if the stylist can’t give you the cut you wanted, or you don’t like it as much as you thought you would, it’s not so great. Sadly, you’ll have to wait a long time until your hair grows out before you can adjust your look accordingly. 

Fortunately, you can make hair grow faster with simple, natural methods. Here are 6 tips to make hair grow faster and thicker. If you have short hair due to damaged cuts, are looking for hair to grow fast or hair loss is constant, then you should do these immediately to make hair grow faster.

Limited Styling


If your hair is in need of time to recover, then it’s best not to apply too much styling. Try to limit the swelling, straightening, curling, dyeing and drying to minimize the risk of splitting ends, drying tangles and damaging hair. Avoid hairstyles that have to be tied too tightly, as they will stretch your hair, weaken it, and break it out more quickly. In short, you should let your hair relax and not overdo it. When the hair is rested, it is healthy and beautiful and grows faster.

Avoid Silicone-Based Care Products or Shampoos

Silicon in hair products will cover the roots of your hair, making your hair feel silky and soft right after using it. However, this substance, if used too much, can lead to clogging of hair follicles, causing hair to become weak, quickly fall out and not grow any longer. Avoid silicone-based care products and shampoos.

Light Trimming

Although this does make your hair shorter, it cuts out damaged hair and improves overall hair health, stimulating faster and stronger hair growth. You should periodically cut back from 0.5 – 1cm every 2 or 3 months.

Massage the Scalp

This is one of the traditional beauty treatments that enhance blood circulation to the scalp, stimulates hair growth, strengthens hair roots, and nourishes hair. All of the above promote new hair growth and restoration of existing hair. Take a few minutes before bedtime to give your scalp some time to relax. In addition, when shampooing, you should also massage lightly, avoid rubbing too hard to clean and relax without breaking hair.

Use Balm

Oils such as coconut oil and olive oil are cheap and popular and are rich in vitamins to keep hair strong and supple. Just apply a little oil to your hair, gently massage from hairline to hair shaft, incubate for about 15 minutes and wash your hair. Then you will see that the hair is smoother and shinier, and in the long run, it will grow faster.

Hair Incubator

You can incubate your hair with recipes with homemade ingredients or choose a hair treatment product that suits your scalp. Some popular ingredients you should choose such as coconut oil, olive oil, butter. Nurse your hair 1 time per week, for about 30 minutes – this is a reasonable time to help bring the desired effect.
