Help On Growing Out Hair

So I've been growing my hair out, and I haven't seen a difference in growth the past month or so. I'm trying to do things like using less heat so my hair is healthier and grows faster. Some people recommend getting it cut often, but I just think that prevents it from getting long! What do you guys to do grow your hair out and keep it healthy?

 

Thanks !!

Re: Help On Growing Out Hair

First of all that whole thing about trimming it every 6 to 8 weeks or whatever they say is a myth and I think a ploy to keep people heading to the salon. Unless you are really going to war with your hair there is no need to be that drastic!

 

My hair is relaxed and is quite long. about 16-18 inches from root to tip. Here are some of my tips:

 

- Switch to sulphate-free shampoo and only use a clarifying shampoo when you really feel like your hair is extra greasy (which should not be that often). Trust me, I wasn't on that whole "sulphate-free" kick but now that I've been doing it I can't go back. The difference in my hair is night and day.

 

- Unless you have hair that gets really dirty or greasy quickly there is no need to wash it every day.

 

- Invest in a good hydrating deep treatment from a reputable brand, preferably one that veers towards the natural side. I like Aveda, Carol's daughter monoi mask, Phyto, Kerastase, Pureology, Kiehl's and Oscar Blandi. Deep treat your hair once a week using either steam heat or put a plastic cap over your head and leave it for 30-45 minutes.

 

- Nexxus Pro-mend leave in treatment for split ends. That product is the real deal IMO. ONLY use it on the ends of your hair like it says.

 

- before putting ANY kind of heat on your hair put a leave-in heat protectant lotion in your hair while it's damp. People skip this step and it's probably one of the best ways to ensure your hair doesn't fry/break/split.

 

- Use heat protectant sprays before using any hot tool (curling iron, hot comb etc.).

 

- Depending on your hair type find a daily lotion, cream or serum that is light that you can put in your hair every day to help retain moisture. Avoid the scalp and just put it in the body of your hair (I like Biosilk).

 

- Find a hairdresser that won't lop off unecessary inches when giving you a trim. A good hairdresser should be able to take off the bare minimum or "dust" your hair depending on your needs.

- Use hair elastics without the metal fastener. you'll lose less hairs and there will be less snagging.

 

Finally, good hair comes from good health, multi-vitamins, Vitamin E, biotin etc are all key in maintaining healthy hair.

I love Carol's Daughter Monoi Hair Mask for preventing and treating any damage such as breakage/split ends. I agree with the Biotin supplement- however I recommend Hair Skin and Nails by Andrew Lessman- they can be purchased at hsn.com. I have seen a huge improvement in all areas since starting to take these. Good luck! :smileyhappy:

You should aveda damage remedy daily hair repair. This did wonders for my hair. my hair used to be thin dryed out would break and now everyone asks me what i use. And my hair grows soo fast now before it would get to a certain length and just look thin or break now its soo thick, love it.

What Beautylovingirl and Melissa said are both right. 

 

Trimming or cutting your hair won't make it grow any faster, but it will give you a better gauge of your hair growing in general. Like Beautylovingirl said, consistant trims keep the ends of hair healthy and free from split ends and damage, which can make hair look like a drab regardless of what length it is.

 

Keeping your hair well conditioned with products that contain strengthening and nourishing ingredients like amino acids, protein complexes, keratin, shea butter, apricot oil, macadamia oil, argan oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, mango butter, and silk proteins.

Well getting it trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks, because if you don't your going to get alot of fuzzy split ends and that's never pretty. Also washing your hair every 2 or 3 days and conditioning and making sure when you use heat tools or blow dryers you use a protectant and if at all possible try not using the heating tools or blow dryer. Hope this helps!

Hi Gaileygal,

My friends who are hair stylist say its not true! You don't have to cut your hair often to make it grow faster. However, I think getting a small trim once in awhile keeps your ends looking fresh and healthy. I take supplements (Biotin) to help my hair grow. Taking vitamins really helps the health of your hair.
