This is how you promote your hair growth!

For many, beautiful, healthy, long hair is just as important as a flawless complexion. In this blog post we have some exciting tips and facts about hair that you probably didn't know all of.

hair subdivision

Adult hair can be roughly divided into terminal hair and vellus hair.

Terminal hair: Thick, pigmented hair such as scalp hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, beard hair, armpit and intimate hair

Vellus hair: Grows all over the body, thinner and lighter pigmented

structure of a hair

A hair consists of the visible part (hair shaft and hair tips) and the invisible part (hair root and hair follicle). Hair growth is regulated in the hair follicle.

Fun Fact: The shape of our follicles determines whether our hair is straight or curly: the rounder the follicle, the smoother the hair grows. The more oval, the more curly.

growth phases

Every hair goes through three phases during healthy hair growth. These are divided into growth phase, transition phase and resting phase. After the three phases, it is perfectly natural for the hair to fall out. The growth phases differ depending on where on the body the hair grows. It can take two to six years for the hair on your head to go through the three phases.

  1. growth phase

At the base of each hair follicle is a hair papilla, which ensures that the cells divide and a new hair is formed. The growth phase can last from two to six years.

Did you already know, that...

a hair grows up to 0.3mm per day and about 1cm in a month?

  1. transition phase

The transition phase lasts about one to two weeks. In this phase, the hair separates from the hair root and is pushed towards the scalp.

  1. rest period

The resting phase of healthy hair is about three to five months. Once the hair is completely separated from the root, it is no longer nourished. At the end of this phase, the root forms a new hair. This crowds out the old hair until it falls out.

growth booster

Many conventional products on the market promise faster hair growth. However, how fast your own hair grows depends on various factors, such as:

  • daily diet and lifestyle habits
  • general wellbeing and health
  • age and gender
  • hormone balance
  • genetic factors

Interesting facts about hair growth:

  • Hair grows faster in summer than in winter.
  • On average, men have thicker hair than women.
  • Hair grows faster during the day than at night.
  • On average, women have slower hair growth than men.

So that a new miracle cure will give you a long mane in two weeks is hardly realistic. However, we have tips for you on how to care for your hair and keep it healthy.

Healthy eating

In order to support hair growth and hair health, a healthy and varied diet is recommended. If you eat a balanced diet, your body will be supplied with all the important nutrients that determine the activity of the scalp and accelerate hair growth. The following nutrients are particularly important for hair growth:

  • vitamin C
  • B vitamins
  • folic acid
  • biotin
  • zinc
  • iron
  • silicon
  • selenium


A regular scalp massage can promote blood circulation and ensure that the nutrients we eat reach the scalp better.

Less stress

A big factor in hair loss can be stress. In such a fast-moving time as we live in, it is also important for the psyche to allow yourself some rest. Take a little time for yourself. How about, for example, a warm and soothing bath or a walk in nature? How you can best and most effectively recharge your batteries is individual. Maybe yoga is your thing, or household cleaning.

In addition to rest, sleep is an important thing: Make sure you get enough sleep - Here too, the ideal number of hours varies from person to person, but as a general rule it should be at least 7 hours a night.

care properly

The individual hair growth of a person is anchored in the genetic code. With the right care, however, you can help your hair to have more moisture, a healthy shine and healthy lengths and ends. Here, too, there is no one right care routine. What your hair needs depends on your hair type.
In this article you will learn more about hair types and their appropriate care.


Unfortunately, we have to disappoint everyone who was hoping for a secret recipe or miracle cure. No expensive vitamin gummy bears will help either. How fast your hair grows is genetically determined.
However, with a healthy diet, physical health and proper care, you can protect your hair from breakage and help it look healthy.
