Hair growth and regrowth is a natural but manifold process. Balding and an early onset of hair loss in men is not only common but also debilitating, causing a lack of self esteem and confidence levels. There are several ways, however, that men can aid their bodies to grow hair faster than it’s usual rate. Here are some tips:

The Ayurvedic herb of Bhringraj is excellent when it comes to facilitating hair regrowth, avoiding premature graying and even in the treatment of hair fall, dry hair and split ends. Bhringraj can be found in the form of oil extracts and the best manner to apply it is by massaging it onto the scalp.  A scalp massage can benefit hair regrowth immensely, just like it can cure headaches and minor migraines. Make sure you massage your scalp by running your fingertips gently through your entire scalp, in circular motions, starting from the nape up to the crown of your head. Make sure to apply light to medium pressure and repeat for about 5–10 continuous minutes at least twice a day.

Here are some Vitamins that are important for good and healthy hair:

Vitamin A: Found in orange and yellow vegetables, eggs and cod liver oil, it helps in production of sebum, which keeps your scalp nourished and moisturized.

Vitamin B: Among vitamin B’s, Vitamins B6, B12 and Folate, play an important role in carrying oxygen and nutrients to all cells in your body including the cells of the hair follicles.

Vitamin C: It plays a vital role in helping the body absorb iron, which is essential for hair growth.

Remember that hair regrowth also depends on other factors such as minimizing stress. So make sure to keep your mind tension free because that will help too.
