The longest hair in the world is 5.627 meters! So much effort is needed to make your hair grow, even if you’re not trying to grow it that long. Those who are trying to grow their hair and improve its condition will understand. And if you want to make the hair you have longer, even just a little, you may need to use some tricks to achieve the desired results.

Bright Side would like to share with you some hacks that can be easily done at home without special tools and will turn you into Rapunzel.

1. Use vitamin B-12.

If you are unable to grow your hair, then you may not have enough vitamin B-12. It's important for hair growth and hair health. A B-12 deficiency can be the reason for dry, thin, and brittle hair. The scalp also needs vitamin B-12, otherwise itching and even dandruff may occur. Therefore, you can try to supplement B-12 to normalize its levels in your body. But it's better to consult a doctor first.

2. Massage your scalp.

A head massage will help improve blood circulation, blood will flow better to the hair follicles and this will stimulate its growth. Massage your head with your fingertips from all sides with gentle movements. You can even do it while washing your hair.

3. Dry your hair correctly.

It's better to not twist your hair up in a towel after washing. And in no case should you rub your hair because you can make it more fragile. Instead of rubbing, just blot it with a towel. Gently press the towel against the hair and remove the moisture.

4. Sleep on silk pillows.

Cotton pillowcases can draw moisture out of your hair and dry it out. But this doesn't happen when using a silk pillowcase. At the same time, silk reduces the friction between the hair and the pillow and thereby reduces the damage.

5. Change your ponytail.

If you regularly put your hair in a ponytail, then you should change its location. Make it a low ponytail and don't over-tighten your hair. The fact is that when you make the ponytail tight, you pull your hair and it can start falling out in front. You also risk constantly losing hair in the same place and damaging its roots. If you like other tight hairstyles, it's better to loosen them and give your hair a rest periodically.

6. Take care of the skin on your scalp.

Your scalp needs care just like the skin on your face. Therefore, you need to trace which of your face care products are right for you. And choose hair products based on the composition that is suitable for your skin. Remember that your scalp needs to be moisturized and have the proper pH to be healthy.

7. Rinse with cold water.

After washing your hair rinse it with cold water. It helps strengthen the hair and make it healthier. In addition, it will add shine to your hair and make it smoother.

8. Try olive oil.

Olive oil perfectly nourishes hair. It's rich in antioxidants and vitamin E. It's good for hair growth and making it shiny and soft. Take 1/4 cup of oil, and rub it into the scalp and hair with massaging movements for a few minutes. Cover your head with a cap and leave it on for 15-30 minutes and then wash it off with shampoo. You can mix olive oil with coconut and castor oil, and pepper and ginger.

9. Moisturize your hair.

Your hair needs to be moisturized for good growth and to enhance its outward appearance. And egg yolk can help you. It contains lecithin, which helps moisturize the hair. Use 2 eggs and a couple of drops of lemon juice. Mix them with a whisk until foamy. Apply to hair and cover with a cap. Keep the mixture on for up to half an hour, and then rinse with cool water.

10. Track your diet.

In order for your hair to be healthy, you need to think about your health from the inside. For this, you need to eat useful elements and minerals. You can add more food to your diet that contains protein (like fish, meat, and beans) and vitamins A and C (with things like carrots, citrus fruits, and pumpkin). And be sure to stay hydrated.
