Hair Care Tips: Does Cutting Your Hair Really Help It Grow Faster?
We all want long, healthy locks that we can flaunt, twist and turn and style them into trendy hairstyles and the best advice we get from everyone is to get a regular cut. People have always believed that if they trim their locks every few days, their hair will grow longer, wondering if that’s true, let’s find out the truth behind it!
The answer is no, a regular cut will not make your hair grow, it does not stimulate hair growth, because cutting your hair does not affect your hair follicles which actually affect your hair growth. So something that has nothing to do with your scalp, how is it going to grow your hair.
So why bother doing regular cutting sessions?
Although regular cuts won’t make your hair grow faster, they will make it look healthier, thicker and shinier because all dead hair will be cut off. Cutting hair regularly also encourages it to grow in the right direction and maintains hair texture and length. Those who are prone to split ends should opt for regular trims because split ends weaken the hair, so they break easily and hamper your hair growth.
Moreover, cutting these dead ends will show off your haircut, the right length of hair and make them look emptier. Don’t worry about cutting 1cm, your hair grows 1-1.5cm each month on average anyway, so you’ll still have long locks a month after your cut. If you don’t want your hairdresser to alter the length of your hair a bit, tell them to “dusting your hair”, this only removes split ends, dead and damaged hair and does not affect the length of your hair in any way. your hair.
So if cutting won’t make your hair grow faster, what will?

During the massage, the blood circulation increases, which supplies the right nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, which leads to hair growth. If you’re wondering what oils can make your massage healthy, consider coconut oil, castor oil mixed with any carrier oil, or almond oil. A massage every week can keep your dead hair at bay.
There’s no point in having long hair if it looks limp, dry and dull. In order for the hair to look long, it is extremely important that it is thick and strong. For this, you need to eat a balanced diet that includes loads of protein, omega 3s, and zinc. You can’t have long, healthy hair if you don’t eat well, so add plenty of green leafy vegetables, fruits, and yes, plenty of water to your diet.
An age-old ingredient known to grow your hair is amla. You can either eat it, which is beneficial for hair and skin, or apply it as a paste. In a bowl, mix 2 teaspoons of amla powder and 2 teaspoons of shikakai powder and a little water to make a smooth paste. Don’t let it get watery. Apply the mixture to your scalp and hair and wait for around 45 minutes. After that, shampoo your hair in normal water. You can follow this routine once a week.
