However, because of the degrading climatic conditions and poor eating habits, hardly anybody can reach this level now. But, you must try everything in order to maintain the health and length of your lustrous locks!

So, get ready for a few hair care tips to grow hair faster and to make them healthier.

Trimming your hair every eight to 10 weeks is of the utmost significance as it takes away the damaged hair and all the split ends—which can make a lot of room for your hair to grow naturally without any hindrance. This particular method shows quick and satisfactory results.

2. Swear by hair masks and regular oiling

Hair masks have been proven to help hair by providing all the essential nutrients and minerals. Though it is sometimes good to use a branded hair mask full of all the requirements, a home-made hair mask can also the trick.

Oil your scalp and hair the night before and wash it off the next morning. Next, apply the mask and rinse it after a good 30-45 minutes to experience some great results.

3. Lock in the nutrients through conditioning

One of the easiest ways to keep your hair shiny, healthy, and long is to apply conditioner after every wash.

Conditioning also helps in sealing the hair cuticle at the end and protects the hair from further damage.

4. Ditch the heat

As beautiful as poker straight hair may seem to you, it is absolutely essential to reduce the exposure of your hair to heating tools as they can deeply damage your hair.
