If you do not have much hair on your legs, and wish to have more, there are a few things you can do to promote the growth of hair on your legs. It may or may not help depending on your genetic disposition, but there are some harmless things you can try at home. If you are trying to promote growth of hair on all parts of your body, you can buy over the counter stimulants or hormones. If you are specifically concentrating on your legs, try these steps.
Change your socks to ankle socks. If you currently wear long socks that are especially tight, you should either buy looser fitting socks or socks that only come to the ankle. This will allow your legs to receive the oxygen they need for hair to grow.
Massage your legs with oils such as jojoba, coconut, olive, or castor oil. Massage them for 10 minutes before going to bed. Leave the oil on overnight and take a hot bath in the morning. You can also put a few drops of oil into your bath. This will promote hair growth by encouraging blood flow.
Eat a healthy diet that is rich in all the necessary vitamins and minerals. Specifically helpful for hair growth are iron, zinc, and vitamin B. Drink plenty of fluids.
- Allow your legs to breath. Choose sandals or shoes that do not require socks on occasion. The oxygen will help promote hair growth.
