Growing longer, healthier hair: questions and answers

Growing longer, healthier hair: questions and answers

We invited you to submit your most pressing hair questions and then we sought out answers from our favorite experts in the field. The range of questions may have surprised us, but the desire to grow long and luxurious hair didn’t.

Check to see if your question was answered and how our expert tips can help you achieve your hair goals.

Q: Why can’t I grow long hair?

A: Maybe you can. Growing long hair takes a long time, and with that, a lot of patience. On average, hair grows half an inch every month, but that can vary person by person.

It’s a good idea to look at your food and supplement choices and how you style your hair. You might be working against your hair growth without even knowing it.

If you feel you’re doing everything right and still unable to grow the hair you want or are suffering from baldness, then you might want to speak to your healthcare provider as there are certain medications and medical conditions that can interfere with hair growth.

Q: Is there a diet that’s better for my hair?

A: There are many foods that are great for hair and work hand-in-hand with smart, healthy meal choices.

The antioxidants in berries can protect your hair from free radicals. The protein found in eggs, nuts, meats, and seafood helps promote hair growth. And the vitamin A from spinach, sweet potatoes, and sweet peppers helps your scalp produce sebum to keep it moisturized.

We love this Tropical Treat Recipe. Not only is it a delicious start to your day, but it’s loaded with hair-healthy ingredients. Give it a try and see how tasty feeding your hair can be.

Q: I like the idea of natural haircare. Can I do this and still grow longer hair?

A: Yes. Your hair is totally natural and benefits greatly from a natural healthcare regimen. 

Q: I’m starting to lose my hair—will it come back?

A: This is a tricky question to answer because there are so many different reasons for hair loss.

A drastic change in your life or even a crash diet can cause telogen effluvium, a temporary hair loss. If this is the case, then your hair will grow back.

The build-up of oil and dead skin cells can block hair follicles, which can also cause temporary hair loss, but if it persists can lead to permanent hair loss.

Medications and certain illnesses can also cause temporary and even permanent hair loss.

Unfortunately, this answer cannot specifically address the question because we don’t know the cause of your hair loss. The best thing to do is to discover what the cause is and then take the necessary steps to remedy it.

Q: How do I prevent split ends and broken hair?

A: Dry hair gives you split ends and breakage. Your hair can dry out from the products you use, your diet, the environment or your haircare routine.

To replenish the moisture in your hair, consider switching to an all-natural shampoo and conditioner, using fewer products on your hair or just sticking to the ones that add moisture and don’t include alcohol.

Finally, you might want to really give your hair a boost with a supplement designed to promote hair growth, try RX Blend: Clinical Strength Hair Vitamins.

Q: How long is too long or am I too old for long hair?

A: These two questions kept cropping up and as a general answer, we love long hair—it’s a sign of youth and vitality. Wearing long hair at any age is not only acceptable, but it’s also on-trend.

That said, how long you grow your hair is up to you. Pick a hairstyle and length that suits you and a maintenance routine that you can live with so you’re always happy with your hair.

Final thoughts

Long hair is a sign of a healthy lifestyle and youthful attitude, but to grow long hair you need to make some healthy choices. Eating right, establishing a haircare routine and picking natural products will give you the long and lush locks you’ve always wanted.

Anyone can wear long hair successfully, but finding the right style might require an expert. Look for a cut that flatters your face, it is easy for you to maintain and fits your lifestyle. When you’re happy with your hair, your confidence will always shine through.
