Long hair for men is a style statement. If you’ve had long hair, ever, you’d know what we’re talking about. It feels amazing to have a head full of hair that’s strong, long, and thick.

You can leave it open, tie it in a man-bun, or try more unorthodox styles – the kinds that will always help you turn heads. But the problem is, it takes a long time for men to grow hair.

Keeping that in mind, below are a list of 5 things to do everyday that will help you grow your hair much faster.

1. Don’t wash your hair every day

It might sound weird, but don’t wash your hair every day. Most of us like washing our hair really frequently, because in a country like India where the climate makes us sweat bucketloads, that is just a natural urge.

However, most of us also don’t know that washing our hair very frequently strips hair off the natural oils, which is detrimental to hair growth, and also aids to hairfall. So, try not washing your hair every day with shampoo. Try washing it on alternate days.

2. Pay more attention to conditioner

Pay more attention to conditioner, as compared to shampoo. If you wash your hair everyday, please make sure you don’t use shampoo, but always use a conditioner post wash. That will keep dryness away, and also help you control hairfall, thereby aiding hair growth.

3. Eat a lot of protein

No matter what kind of grooming routine you follow, if you don’t ingest the right nutrients, you will never be able to grow your hair at an optimal rate. A good breakfast with eggs and chicken can never be underestimated. Try protein rich veggies like broccoli if you’re vegetarian. It will work amazingly well for your hair, and also your muscles.

4. Use silk/satin pillowcases

This may sound ridiculous, but shift to silk/satin pillowcases. When we’re growing our hair, pillow fabrics with harsh materials can result in a lot of hairfall and tangling. Using a silk/satin pillowcase can sort that out for you.

5. Know when to comb your hair

Never comb when your hair is dripping wet, because that’s the time your hair is at its most vulnerable state. If you have curly hair or ringlets, try combing it as less as possible, because it messes up the natural texture and flow of the hair. If you have straight or wavy hair, comb with a wide toothed brush for best results minus the breakage.
