The #1 Tip for Hair Growth and Thicker Hair

Introduction: How to Promote Hair Growth

In this article, I’m going to share with you a practical, simple, inexpensive tip to increase hair growth, as well as increase the thickness of your hair.

Hair grows in three stages, and each strand of hair follows its timeline:

  1. Anagen. The active growth phase of hair lasts 3–10 years.
  2. Catagen. The transition phase, where hair stops growing, lasts 2–3 weeks.
  3. Telogen. The resting phase, where hair falls out, lasts 3–4 months.

At any given time, the average scalp has 90 percent of the hair follicles in the anagen phase, about 1 percent in the catagen phase, and about 9 percent in the telogen phase. The last group accounts for approximately 100 to 150 strands falling out daily.

How long the anagen phase lasts depends on how long your hair is and if the cells in your follicle base continue to multiply and become hair cells.

Hair grows because matrix cells shed some of their structure as they reach the upper follicle. The shed structure combines with keratins to form hair strands that exit your skin’s surface.

Researchers are still looking into what triggers our bodies to switch on the anagen phase, and more studies are needed to know what can be done to promote hair growth.

Still, you can take steps that may promote healthy hair during the anagen phase.

The best tip for hair growth and thicker hair

It’s Jello!

That’s right!

Jello is made of gelatin, and another form of gelatin is called hydrolyzed collagen. Any one of these will work as far as jello goes. Now, I’m not talking about sweetened jello with artificial flavoring.

Instead, I’m referring to unsweetened flavors like Knox gelatin. It is available in powdered form, and you can dissolve it with water or get it in tablet form, or you can make jello.

Why does gelatin work for hair growth?

Here’s an interesting fact about gelatin. Ninety-nine percent is protein, broken down into the basic building blocks — amino acids and some peptides. Now, what’s a peptide?

A peptide is a small chain of amino acids. For example, a peptide could be between 2 and 15 amino acids. But gelatin has some interesting effects.

Gelatin increases blood flow and volume, thereby increasing blood flow to the little hairs on your scalp, and as far as peptides are concerned, there’s one in this gelatin called hydroxyproline. It has been shown to increase hair growth by itself. So it is available in a lot of different hair products.

A lot of double-blinded, placebo-controlled studies between 1983 and 1998 showed a 50 percent increase in hair growth substantial increase in hair diameter (thus making the hair thicker) while also increasing the number of hair strands growing on your head. This is significant for three different conditions:

· Seborrheic alopecia

· Androgenetic alopecia

· Telogen effluvium

Gelatin provides the raw material and enhances the blood flow to help add some to this problem, even if there’s an autoimmune or a genetic component.

How to use gelatin to boost hair growth

Use between 10 and 14 grams per day. That’s equivalent to one tablespoon if you are using the powdered form.

Some studies did not only use gelatin. They also added some L-cysteine. L-cysteine can also be obtained from another product called NAC. The researchers also added salt pulmetal, which is also suitable for the hormone part of hair loss.


Most of the factors that control hair growth are out of your day-to-day control.

The best step is to prevent hair loss and thinning caused by poor nutrition. In other words, be sure to eat a balanced diet and stay hydrated.

Consider consulting your doctor if you experience unusual or significant hair loss. They can check for underlying causes like certain health conditions or nutrient deficiencies.
