Tips for growing your hair?

This may sound like silly advice, but avoid cutting it. My hair is about hip length because of this reason. People get their hair trimmed too often when they don't need it. You can feel and see when your ends need to be trimmed and even then you may not need to cut even an inch off.

These are great tips. I chopped my hair to my shoulders and right after that I got pregnant, and had morning sickness so bad I couldn't leave my bed for anything for the first 7 months. In that time frame I was so rired and sick I didnt have the energy to do my hair so I would take a shower wash it, wash myself throw my hair uo and return to bed. Fast forward after I had ky daughter, and she was about three months old I noticed I had the same habbit with my hair. Still didnt bother with it, absolutly no heat in about a year, no styling not even blow drying. One day I was like "Hey, I havent straightened my hair in FOREVER. Funny thing is I would have my mom brush my hair flat against my back and take off about 1/4 an inch and then thrownit back up in a bun, but anyway one day I decided to straighten it after it being up all night, I was shocked at how long it had gotten in that time frame. also.my hair is naturaly straight, but when I straightened it it was halfway down my back and grew about 14 inches from what it was when i chopped it off.
So basically, I think the KEY is no heat. Its so hard to do but its honestly the key to get your hair long I think.
Also, currently I am in the same situation. Hair is back to my shoulders because I was stupid enough to mess up all my hair I just grew out by bleaching it. What a big mistake. Had to cut it again. So here we are now. But im taking biotin gummy version only because dermetologist says the reason people brake from biotin is usually because they take the pills with the other chemicals in it, gummies are safer, been taking them a few weeks, no break outs.
I hope my hair grows faster now.
Also Im not doing any more permenant hair dying. Only semi dye so that way Im not using ammonia or peroxide in my hair.
I actiually was so desperate to grow my hair that I started doing that crazy "Monistat hair groeth challenge" and I will say it worked. My hair grew and inch in two weeks but I couldnt take the migranes I was getting from doing that. Sounds crazy but I was so desperate .. lol
I hope we can grow our hair ladies. Why cant it grow more than 1/5-1/2 an inch a month

I think you can eat a healthy diet. Eating a diet with rich protein and vital vitamins, minerals and also use castor oil, massage your scalp for healthy hair growth.

Essential oils

I've had lots of layers in my hair since forever, because it makes my hair look less flat and dull.
When I told my hairdresser I was trying to grow it longer, she said we should stop adding layers to it to help it grow faster and more evenly. It seems to have helped on my hair, so it might be worth considering if you have layers.

My friend swears by "trimming" her ends with an electric shaver. She says her hair has never grown so fast!

Biggest advice: DON'T TRIM THE ENDS! Your hair grows at the roots and pushes your growth downward. By trimming the ends you are making it shorter. So cutting the ends is not going to help your hair grow. It will however, get rid of split ends. Another thing people seem to get confused is that split ends are not when the ends of your hair is going the opposite end of each other but when a single strand is split in two.

I cut my hair to about chin length in April and then again to even my layers in May. My hair is now to my shoulders. I have gotten lots of compliments on how my hair looks healthier now so, I'll share my tips with you.

I wear a silk bonnet to sleep. This lets me have my hair down and doesn't give me any aches of having it up or frizzy hair in the morning. I wash my hair a few times a week and try to oil it at least 2-3 times a month. My hair really likes argan oil, so that's what I use. I like natural shampoos but the Indian ones are so messy and time consuming (and take forever to wash out an oil session) so, I dilute my shampoo in a travel size bottle and wash my hair with it. While my hair is still wet, I take a very small amount of oil (pea sized), rub it in my hands, then cover the full amount of my hair.
I avoid using heat as much as I can an opt for heatless methods to style my hair. I try to let my hair air dry instead, and using an oversized t-shirt to let my hair soak and dry inside. This usually leaves my hair shiny and silky feeling.

For whatever reason though, my hair hates conditioners. I notice too much hair fall, so I tend to use oils to keep it conditioned. A little goes a long way! Hope this can help you.

The more active you are the faster your hair and nails grow. Increased blood circulation means increased growth. When it comes to using some products, try a coconut oil. It does wonders, just rub into your scalp. More tips you can find on - https://therighthairstyles.com/how-to-grow-hair-faster/

I think it's important not to listen to hair stylists that tell you that you have to cut your hair every 6 weeks for it to grow long. My hair is past my waist and I just don't cut it. I only trim it to make it look neat and healthy because if you don't then it looks messy and tangled. I do that once or twice a year. some times I put almond oil or olive oil in my hair as a mask for several hours. Coconut oil is very light and doesn't do anything for my hair at all. I love coconut oil to remove makeup though, it's quicker and healthier than any other makeup remover. My hair also loves argan oil. I put it on my ends and it looks healthier right away. I find that anything with silicone dries my hair out terribly, especially those oils that are drugstore that look like natural oils but when you read the ingredients you will see silicone. I sometimes use silicone shine serums if I'm going out. I guess because coconut oil is so light I use it as a shine serum but only very little of it. My hair is bleached and to make it look healthy I use Shea Butter on the ends and my hair looks like it's never been bleached, it looks so healthy.

I definitely echo what other posters are saying here, don't cut it if you want growth! My hair was once really long and getting longer but I decided it was time for a change so I chopped my hair into a long bob and now that it is really short it takes longer to grow out and I have been getting trims occasionally as well. I noticed though that when I don't get a trim it tends to grow easier!
