Posted By Lovella Sitoy in Rapunzel on Dec 04, 2015

Hair follicles are essentially a small sac of cells and tissues that encloses the root of your hair. They are a part of your skin that grows hair. Because they are made up of living cells, they need nutrition to stay healthy and function properly - that is to grow strong hair. Otherwise, you’ll grow weak hair strands that easily break and fall out.

So how do you ensure that your hair follicles are well-nourished and healthy so that they can give you a thick head of hair?

Hair follicles are essentially a small sac of cells and tissues that encloses the root of your hair. They are a part of your skin that grows hair.

So how do you ensure that your hair follicles are well-nourished and healthy so that they can give you a thick head of hair?

Healthy blood flow

Make sure that you have a good (not stagnant) blood circulation. This means that blood, which transport oxygen and nourishment to all the cells and organs in your body, is flowing efficiently throughout your system. Your blood vessels and veins are also wide enough for circulation. Exercising and keeping an active lifestyle can help you maintain a healthy blood flow all over your body.

Power of touch

Scalp massage is another way of boosting your hair follicles for thicker hair growth. By using organic essential oils, you can massage your head and scalp at least once a week to promote healthier follicles. Massaging your scalp can increase circulation and therefore nourish your hair roots at the same time. Plus the nutrients in organic oils such as argan oil and jojoba, can deeply penetrate into your follicles, feeding them with some hair-boosting goodness in every rub.

Healthy proteins

Protein is a crucial nutrient for your hair. It helps generate keratins, a type of protein fiber that gives your hair its form and strength. Keratins are also found in your skin and nails. Scientists also discovered a type of protein that has helped grow thicker and faster hair on mice by promoting blood vessel growth in their skin. (1) Are you experiencing hair thinning and hair loss? Load up more on good protein sources such tuna, salmon, almonds, walnuts, chia seeds, and greek yogurt.

Follicle nourishing vitamins

Your follicles need regular nourishment to stay alive. If you want to help them grow more hair, feed them with vitamins and minerals including antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E, B vitamins biotin, niacin, and riboflavin, as well as the blood-boosting mineral iron. All of these nutrients support circulation and follicle health. 

Proper cleansing

All sorts of dirt can get stuck in your hair and scalp. Without proper cleansing these debris can clog up your hair follicles and damage them. A dirty scalp can likewise result in various scalp infections including dryness and flakiness, blocking your follicles from growing healthy hair. Use gentle and natural hair cleansers that contain nutrients, which can help nourish your hair roots rather than irritating your scalp.

Proper hair brushing

Use a boar bristle brush instead of a narrow tooth comb. Gentle brushing can also have a soothing effect on your scalp, stimulating blood flow in your scalp and therefore boosting follicle hair growth.

Truly your follicles seem to be like a gateway that needs good nutrition and some TLC, to unlock its innate ability of growing beautiful and shiny hair.
