We have all seen long, beautiful hair on television, magazines, or the people around us. Many of us would like to have long, flowing locks of our own, but growing so much hair seems like a daunting task. Long hair does not grow overnight. Most people can not grow their hair faster than a half-inch per month. There is more to achieving long hair than simply letting hair grow on its own. Hair must be exceptionally healthy to grow faster and reach impressive lengths.


1. Nutrition

Nutrition may be the single most important factor in growing long hair. A balanced diet should contain all the essential vitamins and minerals the body needs to stay healthy. The human body reacts to nutrient deficiency by using available nutrients for essential functions first. Hair and nail growth are not essential. Brittle hair and nails frequently indicate a vitamin or mineral deficiency. A healthy, balanced diet is the best way to combat nutrient deficiency, but some vitamins and supplements are specially-formulated to stimulate hair growth.
