Your hair is a reflection of your personality. It can also be a way to express yourself and set you apart from the crowd. If you’re looking for ways to grow your hair long, here are some tips that might work for you.
To grow your hair long men it’s important to use natural oils on your hair. One of the most popular ones is coconut oil. Massage it into your scalp and then wrap a paper towel, toilet tissue, or scarf around your locks and walk away for at least 30 minutes.
This will allow the scalp to absorb the nutrients which will make your hair grow stronger from root to tip.

1. Apply conditioner generously from roots to ends of your hair after shampooing.
2. Take biotin supplements daily. There are a ton of benefits from taking biotin supplements including strengthening hairs and stimulating growth in nails and skin cells. I recommend four hundred micrograms daily along with fish oil capsules.
3. Get regular trims. This will not only stimulate growth but it helps remove split ends which can cause breakage in your hair when styling or combing. Keep the length of the trims to no more than an eighth of an inch off your hair at one time, This way you won’t experience any major damage to your hair.
4. Brush your scalp in a circular motion with a natural bristle brush to stimulate blood flow to the roots of your hair. Do this after you apply oil or leave-in treatment before bedtime for best results.
5. Use deep conditioning treatments once per month. I personally use the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque for this purpose. Seal in the treatment by applying a shower cap and either sitting under a bonnet dryer or sit outside in the sun for 15 minutes to let it work its magic on your hair and scalp. Rinse out with cold water and shampoo as normal.
6. Avoid swimming in chlorine water. While swimming may be good for your overall health, it can wreak havoc on your hair and scalp. It makes the hair dry out and the scalp becomes flaky.
7. Avoid getting your hair wet daily if possible to keep from drying it out with the use of shampooing twice per day or using the dry shampoo method to give your hair a break. The more you try to avoid getting your hair wet, the less damage it will sustain.
8. Avoid certain styling tools such as curling irons should be avoided completely if possible for this purpose because of the heat damage that can be caused over time.
If you must use them, use them on low heat and the lowest setting possible to keep them from causing damage. Hair straighteners or flat irons should also be used on a low setting if necessary, ideally using a natural bristle brush to pull the hair taut while you make one pass with the iron for each section of your hair.
9. Use leave-in conditioning sprays after showering to keep your hair hydrated.
10. Drink plenty of water daily to keep your body hydrated and provide moisture for your scalp and strands of hair. It’s also a great way to flush out toxins.
11. Avoid using rubber bands as much as possible, especially those metal ones with no padding on them.
Use fabric-covered elastic hair ties instead. Always remove your hair tie when sleeping at night and never wrap your hair in an elastic ponytail holder too tightly because this can cause temporary hair loss or balding.
12. Replace your pillowcase at least once every week to avoid oil build up and other impurities that can get trapped in your hair while you sleep.
It’s also important to wash sheets, pillowcases, and comforters at least twice per month if not more frequently depending on how much you sweat.
13. Go to bed with your hair damp. This will give the hair time to air dry overnight which will restore moisture that has been lost throughout the day.
If you need to use a hairdryer, keep it on low heat or cool setting and move it around the head so as not to cause damage. If you have naturally curly or wavy hair then let it dry naturally into its natural style. If not, use a heat protectant before you begin blow drying.
14. Use a satin pillowcase instead of cotton. This will minimize friction between the pillow and your hair while you sleep, which can lead to breakage. It’s also important to use a satin or silk scarf on your hair when tying it up overnight if you are experiencing temporary hair loss for this purpose.
15. Try adding Biotin supplements to your diet if you think your hair loss is a result of a protein deficiency.
This vitamin, which is sometimes referred to as Vitamin H or B7, can help promote hair growth and strengthen the strands.
16. Use a natural bristle brush to stimulate blood flow in the scalp when brushing your hair before going to bed at night.
Diet is very important
For growing your hair long, it’s no secret that you are what you eat. High protein diets will provide the nutrients necessary for the strong, healthy growth of your hair.
Dietary deficiencies can cause breakage and dry, brittle hair making it more difficult to grow your hair out to its full potential.
Make sure to avoid red meats because they lack many of the nutrients required for healthy hair growth. Instead, opt for fish, poultry, and certain plant-based proteins such as soybeans.
Many people don’t realize that their diet can impact the quality of their skin, nails, and hair in a big way leading to breakage or brittleness so it’s important to have a well-balanced diet to help keep these things taken care of.
Here are some examples of high protein diets that can contribute to healthy hair growth:
Chicken, Fish (salmon), Yogurt (Greek style is best), Eggs, Soybeans, Quinoa, Lentils, Beans.
The bottom line
Hair loss can cause a lot of distress for many people, but it’s important to remember that there are plenty of ways to combat temporary hair loss and promote healthy hair growth.
Taking good care of your body inside and out is the best way to keep your hair healthy and looking great.
