5 Tips on How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Have you been struggling to achieve the desired length of your hair? Did you get a haircut that was shorter than expected? Or are you just tired of the short hair? You’re in the right place, babe!

In this blog, you’ll find actually helpful hair tips you can do at home to help you grow your hair faster and achieve that long mane you have been waiting for.

Why isn't my hair growing faster?




First, things first. Before going into the tips & tricks on how to make hair grow fast, you need to know hair has a life cycle.

 Growth or anagen phase

It lasts between 2 and 7 years. In this phase, the follicle is healthy, its cells have permanent activity, and the hair grows linearly. This phase determines the length of the hair. The longer this stage lasts, the longer the hair will be.

 Transition or catagen phase

It lasts between 3 and 6 weeks. The activity of the follicle cells stops causing a growth stop and the subsequent fall, in which the follicle changes its shape.

 Resting or telogen phase

It lasts between 2 and 3 months, and during the whole process, the hair root remains in the follicle. Here’s when the follicle rests, and the hair begins to fall out. After that, the hair cycle begins again with the growth phase.



The duration of the hair growth phase can be affected by hair products, hormonal changes, stress, genetics, lifestyle, and diet.

On average, it’s estimated that healthy hair grows about 0.4 millimeters a day. That’s the equivalent of growing 14.6 centimeters a year. It might seem not enough, but please be patient, babe. You’ll get there! Some hacks can help you improve your hair growth process.


Helpful & Easy Tips To Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Here are your basics. These are the tips everyone talks about, but they do it because they work overtime to create a solid hair care routine for healthy hair.  


Get hair trims regularly

Cutting split ends is ideal for keeping your hair healthy. Remember, damaged hair grows slowly. Ofc, make it clear to your stylist that he missed you the minimum!


Brush and dry your hair very carefully

Brushing your hair daily stimulates blood circulation in the scalp and helps hair grow longer and better. Start with a high-quality brush and apply a heat protectant when you use your hair dryer.


Rinse hair with lukewarm water

It's important to rinse your hair well when you’re in the shower. When you eliminate residue traces, you prevent hair buildup, which allows your scalp to have proper oxygenation. We recommend using warm water because hot water can irritate your scalp. 

Eat rich foods

NGL, fruits & veggies are great for your health, but some other options can help your hair, like protein, iron, vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin E.


  • vegetables (spinach, onions, carrots, garlic, bell peppers, beans, broccoli)
  • fruits (bananas, papaya, strawberries, avocados, guavas, blueberries, oranges, grapefruit)
  • fatty fish (salmon, sardines, mackerel)
  • nuts and seeds (almonds, pistachios, walnuts, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds)
  • eggs
  • High-quality red meat and chicken breasts

Let us clarify that hard water itself isn’t harmful, but it’s not the best for your hair or skin. It can cause some problems, as you can see in this 2016 study, in which 15 females found that hard water was causing them hair damage. This was found in hair samples from 30 days, where they used both hard water and distilled water.


Some of the women experienced: 

  • Tangles
  • Dry scalp
  • Hair dullness
  • Hair breakage
  • Hair loss
  • Frizz
  • Green hue
  • Thinning


How to treat hard water hair damage:

  • Install a water softener showerhead
  • Use a clarifying shampoo
  • Apply a hair mask once a week


And, of course, the most important one, check with your dermatologist in case you’re experiencing severe hair loss or dry scalp.

Try topical hair-growth products

There’s a wide variety of hair-growth products in the market, but you should look for these key ingredients.


  • Vitamin B7 (helps with keratin production to promote hair growth)
  • Caffeine (when applied to the scalp, it stimulates blood flow)
  • Clinically-tested peptides (support hydration & protection of hair follicles)
  • Zinc (participates in the production of creatine and collagen)


We recommend using our G2G hair serum containing the three first ingredients listed above. 

→ Pro tip: use a gua sha & do a gentle massage on your scalp to promote healthy blood flow.
