How to Jumpstart Hair Growth

The first step in growing your hair longer faster, like Avril’s: Phillips suggests starting by making an appointment with your doctor to be sure you’re healty internally.

Eating Well = Longer Locks

You also have to eat well in order for your hair to grow long and strong, like Isla’s. “It’s all about balance and eating a little bit from each of the food groups,” says Phillips. “If you’re a vegetarian, I tell my patients to create balance by including protein albeit legumes, lentils, etc. into their diet—especially since everyone should be eating protein in the morning and afternoon.”

She adds that, “by fueling it often and early, you’re showing your body that there is enough for all parts of it, compared to eating a colorful meal at the end of the day. In which case, your body will store and prioritize the nutrients for vital organs only, instead of passing it out to non-essential tissue, like hair.”
