Tips for Selecting the Right Hair Growth Product

Consider these hair growth tips and facts before deciding on the right growth product for you!

If you’ve ever had a short haircut or simply wanted to grow your hair out for a special occasion, at one point you may have considered a hair growing product.

Before experimenting with any hair growth products, there is some important information you need to know.

Hair Loss In Women

First, there is no miracle potion out there that will grow your hair Rapunzel long overnight. Actually, you won’t even get 2 inches overnight or even in a month.

Hair only grows only 6 inches per year. If you do the math, that’s 0.5 inches per month (give or take a few millimeters). Some lucky individuals can exceed 6 inches per year, while others barely make it up to 6 inches.

While hair growing products can boost your hair growth cycle it’s only temporary. Hair growth products only work for as long as your use them. Once you stop, that extra growth boost comes to a halt.

Can Hair Growing Products Grow My Hair Faster?

Yes, they can speed up hair growth a bit but not by much. Hair only grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month.

Using hair growth products can speed up hair growth a little, maybe 3/4'' to 1 inch per month. But hair growth won't "realistically" exceed much more than that.

Another reason why your hair may not grow as fast has to do with consistency. If YOU are not CONSISTENTLY using hair growth products your hair won’t yield results.

One important hair growth tip to follow, stick with products for at least 2-3 months. In order to accurately measure the results.

Hair Growth Tips: Supplements

There are a lot of vitamin brands out there designed for faster hair growth. Personally, I’ve tried a lot and I haven’t experienced any harsh side effects. However, before taking any hair vitamins you should do the following:

1. Consult With Your Doctor

Check with your doctor to make sure it’s safe for you to take hair vitamins. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions that could be affected by extra vitamin intake, your doctor should be notified.

2. Do Not Use Multiple Vitamins or Hair Vitamins at the Same Time

Taking too many vitamins could damage your liver in the long run. Check with your doctor to make sure you’re not overdoing it.

Which Hair Growth Product Is Best?

This is up to you. Personally, I’ve tried a little bit of everything and prefer hair growth oils. I’ve also tried many vitamins and treatments such as Organic Root Stimulator. I went with what worked best for me. However, here is a list for you to consider.

Different types of growth products:

  • Growth Oils
  • Hair Supplements
  • Growth Treatments (i.e. Megatek, Organic Root Stimulator, MTG, etc.)

Hair Growing Oil & Treatments

If you’re thinking about trying hair growth oils & treatments (such as MTG or Megatek) do a sample on a very small section on your scalp first. Don’t slather the product on your hair all at once.

This will identify whether you’re allergic to any ingredients contained in the product. If you experience itching or buring then you’re probably allergic to the product.

Consider using a different form of treatment for longer hair. Heaven forbids in your quest for longer hair you end up with no hair at all.

How to Realistically Maximize Your Hair Growth Cycle

  1. Drink Plenty of Water – Drink at least 8-10 ounces of water per day. Drinking water improves not only the human body’s functions, but it also improves hair growth.
  2. Minimize Stress – Stress can cause your hair to fall out. Just like a chain, if you put to much stress on it will break. Try exercising regularly to reduce stress.
  3. Take a multivitamin – Multivitamins supplement your health with basic daily nutrition. In addition to taking a multivitamin, you should maintain a well-balanced nutritious diet. Hair growth vitamins are okay to give a try but talk to your doc. I can’t stress this enough.
  4. Perform Scalp Massages Regularly – Stimulate the hair follicle with a scalp massage along with your favorite natural oil. Regular scalp massages increase blood circulation to the hair follicles. You can try any natural hair oil of your choice or you can experiment with hair growth oils. Both work really well.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting longer hair, but make sure you're not doing anything hazardous to your body in the process. Eating healthy and making educated decisions about the right products for your hair will help you achieve a beautiful mane in no time!
