Natural hair growth happens at a pace of 0.35 millimeters each day, or around 12 inches each month, for a total of 6 inches yearly. So even if the rate hasn't altered, your hair will grow faster the shorter it is.

Furthermore, even if a product promises to give you fuller, thicker hair, you were born with all the 80,000 to 120,000 hair follicles you'll ever have. This means you cannot develop more hair follicles (or hair strands) than what you were born with. Despite this, there are some circumstances in which you may be able to stimulate your hair follicles to aid in regrowth, which is where the following ten professional suggestions and products come in.

Your hair's rate of growth is influenced by things like

  • Age
  • Hair type
  • General well-being
  • Specific health issues

The stages of hair growth

Each strand of hair develops in accordance with the following three stages:

  • Anagen. The hair goes through an active growth period of 3 to 10 years.
  • Catagen. The hair stops growing during the transition phase, which lasts two to three weeks.
  • Telogen. It takes 3–4 months for the hair to come out during the resting phase.

It takes two stages to promote length: stimulating growth and maintaining the health of the hair you already have. There are various ways to encourage hair development, including taking keratin supplements, using essential oils, taking vitamins, using antioxidants, wearing protective hairstyles, getting regular trims, and brushing your hair. Brushing your hair is also an important approach to encourage hair growth.

What are the advantages of brushing your hair?

The scalp produces sebum and other natural oils that are good for hair. Every time you brush your hair, this nutrient-rich oil is dispersed from the roots to the ends by the sebaceous glands in your hair follicles. This allows moisture to pass through your hair, giving it that lovely sleekness and sheen. Additionally, the oils aid in nourishing the roots of your hair and keeping your scalp hydrated, both of which are essential for strong hair growth. The ideal brush to use is one made of wood.

Using a wooden bamboo hairbrush, you can gently massage your scalp while brushing your hair. The brush strokes can encourage blood flow, which results in more blood providing nutrients and oxygen to your scalp and stimulating your hair follicles, resulting in stronger hair follicles.

Regular brushing stimulates the scalp in addition to removing lost hair. By doing this, you reduce the possibility that these hair strands will knot, which can result in a more violent brushing that makes your hair more vulnerable to damage.

Hair transplantation should be explored since it is a long-term therapy if excessive hair loss persists despite brushing the hair to stimulate it, and it is also a crucial treatment that can stop any hair loss (balding and thinning).

Hair transplant Turkey is the finest place for hair transplantation because it has the best specialists is affordable, and uses the best techniques, including follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplant (FUT), to produce the best and desired results.

In an FUE hair transplant treatment, individual hair follicles are removed and transplanted to different scalp locations. In a FUT hair transplant, the scalp is removed in a long strip, the hair follicles are separated, and the hair is transplanted. Both of them are efficient and produce the desired outcome.

Patients undergoing hair transplant surgery may have some scalp discomfort for the first two to three days following the procedure. Given that the patient's scalp has undergone surgical trauma, this is completely typical. Therefore, there is no need to be concerned; it is only a surgery-related consequence. Patients who have had a hair transplant after two months may have temporary hair loss, known as shock hair loss following a hair transplant, which happens when the body heals. Existing hair loss after the hair transplant refers to the possibility that certain patients may develop hair loss in regions that were not treated during the hair transplant procedure. This is also natural since the scalp creates a defense mechanism after surgery or trauma. There is nothing to be alarmed about, as these hairs usually come back three months after hair transplant operations.
