But, there is no formula to make hair grow dramatically in that period of time. The health and beauty of hair need patience and discipline. Steps to grow your hair wouldn’t be effective without maintaining a balanced diet, avoiding stress, and protecting your hair from abuse; like harsh weather, chemical treatments, and excessive use of styling products and equipments. All these create problems like dandruff and split ends, which restrict the growth of hair. Avoid intake of excessive caffeine, nicotine, and junk food. A balanced diet that includes nutrients like minerals, vitamins, proteins, and calcium is also important for healthy and long hair. It’s also very important to get enough rest daily.
