If you have done everything you thought was right about caring for your hair and you still cannot see a difference in hair growth, you may want to look at your hair problem from a different perspective. Perhaps you have tried all natural remedies and while your hair looks healthy and feels fine, it does not seem to increase in length as much or as fast as you would wish. You don't need to give up just yet because there may be one aspect you have not attended to.
In most cases, you know your hair has the capacity to become longer but somehow there seems to be a hindrance you cannot put a finger on. If this describes what you are going through month after month, perhaps it is time to consider the health of your scalp. Find out if your scalp is greasy, dry or even flaky as this may be part of the clue to your problem. Any of these signs is likely to be an indication of a problem with your diet, health condition or a change in your hair regimen.
You may want to compare your hair as a plant and your scalp as the garden. It goes without saying that the condition and health of plants is determined by the quality of the soil. If the soil is not fertile you cannot expect to see plants flourishing. Similarly, a scalp that is not healthy and well nourished cannot support the growth of long healthy hair. Sometimes people spend large amounts of money trying to grow their hair but since they neglect their scalps, they never get the desired results.
Your first course of action should to look at your scalp for clues of an underlying problem:
Dry Scalp: If your scalp is dry and your hair is likewise dry, this could be an indication that you need to nourish it with nutrients. The best way of dealing with this problem is drinking plenty of water while supplementing your diet with foods that are loaded with omega 3 fatty acids, zinc and vitamin A and B.
Dry scalp and Oily hair: The most common cause of this condition is likely to be an allergic reaction or sensitivity to the shampoo you are using. Sometimes it is also an indication of pH imbalance in your scalp. There are a number of homemade remedies for this problem apart from using mild shampoos.
Oily scalp and dry hair: While this is not a usual condition it is still common and is most likely caused by clogged pores and a hormonal imbalance.
