10 Simple Tricks to Make your Hair Grow Faster & Thicker
The 10 simple tricks to make you hair grow faster will leave even Rapunzel envious! Hair growth is a result of a cycle of physiological events that take place in the hair bud or follicle, rightly termed as the hair cycle. There are three phases to this stage – anagen (the growing phase), catagen (the intermediate phase) and telogen (the shedding phase). The length of one's hair is dependent upon several factors, including genetic predisposition, nutrition and of course, the duration of the anagen phase. A hair strand grows at the rate of about one centimetre a month, which means it would take each strand about a year to grow by twelve centimetres; it would take five years to grow hair up to sixty centimetres, while waist-length hair, which is usually eighty to ninety centimetres long, will have taken about seven years to grow. Shoulder-length hair will have taken only about three years.
General health and nutritional factors are important for healthy hair growth. Some minerals may be particularly important for hair growth. Those who lack zinc in their diet produce only fine, sparse hairs and even lose their hair. Vitamin B, also known as panthenol, plays a part in hair growth. It also improves the physical properties – elasticity, strength and gloss – of the hair shaft.
