Dreaming about long, luscious locks? In this article, we’ll discuss how to make hair grow faster – the natural way! If we had a magic potion that would make your hair grow centimetres overnight, trust us, we would share it with you! But until such formula exists, we prefer to encourage hair growth using a gentle, nourishing approach.
With plenty of natural treatment options, achieving your hair goals doesn’t have to feel so far-fetched. Simply follow our tips below to grow healthier, stronger, and longer hair.
*Our tips have been gathered from our very own Rossano Ferretti Parma hair experts – they’re pros at knowing how to make hair grow faster!
One of the best ways to stimulate hair growth is to give yourself frequent scalp massages. A massage will increase blood flow to your scalp, encouraging nutrients to arrive at your follicles faster. This will ultimately lead to healthier, stronger follicles that not only grow faster but are less likely to break.
You can give yourself a scalp massage when your hair is dry but adding an enhancing scrub to the mix will only double the benefits.
Try: Prodigio Cleansing Scalp Scrub to invigorate and remove dead skin cells (leaving room for new cells to flourish). Massage this shampoo scrub into your scalp weekly for the best results.
Weekly hair repair mask
As we mentioned, there’s no secret formula that grows hair faster over night. But there are plenty of products that can improve the quality of the hair shaft each follicle produces. The healthier each follicle is, the more likely it will grow a strong, thick strand that will add to the lengths of your hair. However, it’s important that you maintain the health and strength of each strand as it grows to prevent breakage – and this is where a hair mask can become your new best friend!
A quality hair mask will nourish your tresses and infuse them with all the goodness they need to stay strong.
We LOVE Prodigio Pre-Wash Regenerating Treatment. It works just like a hair mask but is applied to your hair before you shampoo it. It’s an amazing product that softens and strengthens even the most damaged or over-processed hair.
We’re not here to judge and if smoking is what gets you through the day, that’s your personal choice. But we’d be lying if we said that it’s good for your hair. You see, smoking restricts blood flow to the scalp and follicles, which means that your locks aren’t going to get many nutrients fast. Also, the toxins from smoke can seep into your strands, loading them with damaging properties that encourage breakage. We’ll leave it at that.
Trade hair growth supplements with a nutritious lifestyle
Hair growth supplements may sound like an easy fix, but as we said – there is no way to make hair grow faster than your body’s DNA allows. We can only encourage healthier hair that sticks around for longer. The best way to do this is to follow a healthier, more nutritious lifestyle.
Did you know that vitamins and minerals found in foods are easier for your body to absorb than sources found in supplements? They also naturally deliver a healthier ratio of nutrients. So, unless a medical professional has suggested otherwise, we encourage you to “eat” your way to longer, healthier locks!
Tip: healthy fats encourage healthy hair growth and are needed for a shiny, lustrous glow. Include salmon, tuna, walnuts, plant oils, and flaxseed in your diet, and you’ll have radiant longer-looking hair in no time!
Limit heat styling
Hot styling tools are great, but let’s set them aside for special occasions. You see, the heat from these tools can damage your locks by making them dry and brittle, which can lead to breakage and shorter hair length. If you must use your blow-dryer or curling/straightening tongs, remember to add a blow-dry spray to drastically reduce any damage.
Avoid over-washing hair
Washing your hair too often can lead to broken, dry, and brittle strands. This is because cleansing formulas strip hair of natural oils along with dirt. It also prevents your scalp from taking time to produce more nourishing oils. Extend the life of your strands by giving them a decent break between washes.
Advice: use a dry shampoo to keep your hair fresh and energised on days when you don’t use traditional shampoo.
Trim split ends regularly
Snipping your hair may sound counterproductive when you’re trying to grow it, but split or dead ends don’t help with hair growth. Split ends can split all the way up the hair shaft, leaving you with brittle strands that shorten when they break. The solution here is to trim just a few millimetres off your hair every couple of months.

Brush gently when detangling
This tip may test your patience, but it’s well worth the dedication.
When you brush your hair roughly or in haste, you can cause your strands to snag, split, and break off – which is pretty much the opposite of hair growth!
To keep your hair smooth and undamaged, use a professional detangler brush to work through knots slowly and gently.
Tip: avoid brushing your hair vigorously especially when it’s wet because this is when it’s at its most vulnerable state!
None of us are devoid of stress. For some, one symptom of stress is hair loss. If you feel like this is you, then we encourage you to take a breath and take it easy on yourself.
Set aside time for self-care. Exercise, meditate, read, journal, or take whatever action appeals to you to unwind and find peace in your day. Not only is this good for your entire well-being, but it will have an amazing effect on the health and the radiance of your locks!
Sleep on a silk pillowcase
Yes, luxury haircare does mean you get to sleep on silk! Cotton pillowcases tend to absorb all the moisture from your hair and the friction can cause damage and breakage. Silk or satin, on the other hand, has a smooth non-absorbing surface that will encourage your hair to retain moisture while eliminating friction. Now, this won’t speed up the growth process, but it will keep your locks in a better condition so that they can grow long – and stay long!
Invest in products that contain Keratin to fill in breakage
Do you really want to know how to grow your hair faster? The answer – keratin-based products.
Keratin is an amazing natural ingredient that combats dryness while making hair appear shinier! It also optimally strengthens strands to prevent breakage, repairing it in its wake.
