Trimming and topical applications are necessary, but nothing can beat the importance of healthy diet.

To make your hair grow faster, look healthier be thicker, eat as much protein as you can. Foods rich in protein include milk, eggs, chicken, fish, legumes and nuts.
Massage Your Scalp
Massaging your scalp is also important for healthy hair growth, as it also helps stimulate blood circulation. But it is a must before you shampoo your hair. Massage your scalp with your favorite oil (coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil) for 3 to 5 minutes at least, every time you shampoo your hair.
Keep Your Scalp Clean
A healthy scalp is a key to healthy and beautiful locks. So, if you wish to have thick and healthy hair, take very good care of your scalp. Massage your scalp regularly. Also shampoo and condition your tresses at least twice a week.
Brush Your Hair Twice a Day
Brushing and combing stimulates blood circulation in your scalp. So, if you are seeking the simplest and easiest way to grow your hair faster, brush them twice a day for a couple of minutes – in the morning and evening every day. However, make sure you brush your hair gently. There is no working principle as “brush harder and grow faster”. Brushing your hair gently stimulates blood circulation, which ultimately helps in efficient supply of essential nutrients to the hair follicles. It is also pertinent to mention here that over brushing can damage you locks. Twice a day is just more than enough.
Shampoo and Condition Properly
To keep your hair in the best possible health, it is important that you shampoo and condition them properly. Shampoo should be applied to the roots of the hairs and let it come to the tips. On the other hand, when conditioning your hair, apply the product from mid length to the tips. Applying the conditioner in the tips not only weighs your hair down causing an apparent loss of volume, but they will also get oily very quickly.
Egg and Honey Hair Mask
Besides regular trim and conditioning your hair, applying healthy hair masks is also a must. Here is simple, easy-to-make hair mask that will not only help your locks grow faster, but will also keep them hydrated and healthier. Take one egg yolk and beat it with one tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. Mix well and massage it into the roots of your hairs. Also spread it to the tips and wait for about half an hour. After 30 minutes, shampoo and condition your hair as usual. Repeat this one a week or once in every two weeks and you will be amazed by the outcome.
Warm Oil Treatment
If you really want your hair to grow at a faster rate, warm oil massage is very effective. Simply heat up a little bit of your favorite oil (coconut oil is the best), and use it to massage the roots of your hair. If you have a friend or partner available, better ask them to help you with the massage. Wrap your hair in a towel moistened with warm water and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. After that shampoo and condition your hair as usual and you will be amazed by the silkiness and smoothness of your hair. Repeat this at least twice a month for best results.
