    The Reason

    When the hair enters the anagen, a phase in the cycle of hair growth also known as the active phase of the hair, the cells in the root of the hair start diving rapidly. Thus, a new hair is formed and the hair that has stopped growing is pushed up the follicle and eventually out. Many people cannot grow their hair beyond a certain length and this mainly happens because of a short active phase growth. But, you don’t have to worry anymore because help has arrived. Here are few tips that will help you process the stunted growth of hair in 10 days.

    Eat Salmon

    Salmon, sardines, trout and mackerel contain vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids which can boost hair growth. The body cannot create fatty acids on its own and these acids can make up to 3% of your hair shaft. So, eat salmon whenever you can.
