In case you are experiencing hair fall, it is better to focus of stopping the hair fall, rather than jumping upon treatments to grow more. If you are healthy internally, you will always have healthy hair. Therefore, firstly, add eggs to your diet.

Massaging the scalp has been a centuries old tip for hair growth, but how many of us are doing it right? All your efforts will go in vain if you don’t know how to do it.

Castor oil promotes hair growth naturally as it contains Vitamin E and essential fatty acids like omega-9 fatty acids vital for hair growth. Since the oil is viscous, you can mix this oil with an equal amount of coconut, olive, or almond oil. Massage your scalp with this mixture and leave it on for about 30-45 minutes.

Aloe Vera nourishes your hair and prevents hair loss. It also gives your hair natural shine and reduces dandruff.

Herbs promote faster hair growth. Rosemary, catnip, burdock, horsetail and fenugreek are excellent for hair growth. They stimulate the hair follicles and add shine to your locks.
Prepare a herbal infusion by soaking any of these herbs in hot water for 10 to 20 minutes. Use it as a final rinse for conditioning your hair.
For fenugreek, you can soak the seeds overnight or boil them in a little water till they become soft. Grind the mixture and make a paste to apply on your hair. You can also add essential oils in the paste to apply on hair. Leave it on your hair for an hour. Rinse with shampoo. It will make your hair soft and strengthened.
Who doesn’t love a hot shower? Unfortunately, our hair! Yes, you read that right!! Taking hot showers is the least favorite activity for our hair as it weakens our follicles and dries out our hair from roots to ends. However, that does not mean we give up on our most relaxing showers sessions. All you have to do is end the hot shower with a cold-water rinse of the scalp. This allows our follicles to stay strong and prevents loss of moisture.
All in all, you can do whatever helps your hair grow but keep in mind that consistency is key. Always!!
