Dirty hair Grows Faster? Myth or an Actual Reality?

When it comes to hair styling, dirty hair always wins. It curls and slicks better, and it volumizes better. There are even dry shampoos and texturizing sprays that are designed to mimic the look of second or third-day hair on freshly washed hair.

Some may believe that dirty hair causes it to grow faster, but this is not the case. A healthy scalp is a clean scalp, which allows for optimal hair growth conditions. Hair must be cleansed regularly for it to grow. Normally, two to three hairs grow from each follicle, and when there is buildup, it causes miniaturization, which means the follicle shrinks and causes thinning.

How Frequently Should You Shampoo Your Hair for Healthy Hair?

But does this imply that you must wash your hair every day for it to grow? It mostly depends on the texture and type of your hair, as well as how frequently you use hair products. Do what works best for you and your regular hair care routine when washing your hair.

It’s a common misconception that washing your hair every day will cause your scalp to dry out. However, some people believe that the scalp should be treated with the same care and attention as the rest of your skin. We wash our faces and bodies every day; it’s perfectly acceptable to wash our hair and cleanse our scalp daily.

If you have oily, straight hair, you may find that you benefit from a daily rinse. If you have dry hair, daily shampoos may cause it to dry out, resulting in breakage. That’s why some people believe dirty hair contributes to good hair health. Assume, on the other hand, you have dry, curly hair. You can wash your hair once a week and it will still grow healthy. You just don’t want to go weeks and weeks without rinsing it. Your hair growth is not hampered by your washing routine. Also, read Wash Your Scalps as Frequently as You Do Your Face?

How Can You Accelerate Hair Growth?

Hair grows about 1/2 inch per month (or six inches per year), and healthy hair growth is largely determined by your age, health, and hair type. A few lifestyle factors that can contribute to hair loss include:

  • Consider your diet- Have you ever noticed how your skin looks better when you eat a more balanced diet? By ‘feeding’ your scalp the proper nutrient diet. Your scalp pores are clear and ready to promote thick, full, healthy-looking hair.
  • Consider the following supplements-  While supplements alone do not allow you to eat whatever you want. Many of those good-for-you ingredients are available in pill or powder form (such as fish oil, iron, zinc, or biotin pills) for those days when it is difficult to eat right.
  • Examine your haircare labels- Topically apply nourishing ingredients thought to promote hair growth (such as peppermint essential oil) to your shampoos and conditioners.
  • Give your scalp a massage- Massage your scalp to stimulate your hair follicles and improve blood circulation. This practice, however, is not so much about speeding up hair growth as it is about extending your hair growth cycle. The longer your hair stays on your head, the longer it will grow from month to month.
