How do I get my hair to grow back fast and healthy, without breaking and thinning.

A person’s hair growth and health is one of the most defining aesthetic features and is therefore given a lot of importance. While a large number of people will usually look at the hair and applaud it for its beauty, it is important to remember that a lot of medical professionals consider the hair to be a barometer to gauge the overall health status of the individual. This is primarily because of the fact that, the speed with which the hair grows requires a tremendous amount of energy in order to do so. When the body is suffering from some internal medical complications, the body identifies that as a priority and diverts all the energy that otherwise helps  hair growth, to the area of infection. As a result, the hair is robbed of the energy and starts to look dull and brittle if the sickness carries on for a significant period of time. However, the dullness and overall poor health of the hair can equally be blamed on poor care as well as exposure of the hair to chemicals and damaging conditions such as heat and excessive moisture. One of the most common factors that cause immense damage to the hair is the excessive use of blow dryers and heating irons. Most of the commercially available hair care products also have a certain amount of chemical content that could be rather damaging to the hair and, as a result, you may want to be careful about the products used.

Before exposing your hair to any aggressive hair care products, you need to repair any damage and improve the base quality and texture of your hair. One of the best ways to achieve this is to try a hot oil treatment on a regular basis until your hair reaches a level of strength where it can handle the chemical impact. All you need to do is heat up some coconut oil and massage it into your scalp thoroughly – making sure that every strand or hair and portion of the scalp is attended to. After this, wrap your head in a warm towel in order to activate the healing properties of the oil. When the towel has cooled down to room temperature, wash off the oil with the help of some warm water. You must also keep in mind the fact that your diet also plays a significant role in determining the speed of hair growth. Increase your intake of folic acids, magnesium and vitamin B-6.
