Primp Tip: How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

Primp Tip: How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster
We’ve all been there. You head to the salon confidently, ready to try out a chic new hairstyle, only to realize afterward that the bob or bangs you were so excited about aren’t what you thought they’d be. Whether you’re recovering from a bad cut or hoping for waist-length waves by your wedding day, waiting for your hair to grow can be a rather tedious process.

Fortunately, I have tresses that grow like a weed. (Here’s my hair last summer right after cutting it and just 11 months later.) I’ve been able to donate my hair to organizations like Locks of Love and Pantene Beautiful Lengths a total of five times (which requires chopping off 8 to 10 inches at a time). And since I’m often asked what my secret is, today I wanted to share a few tips that I’ve come across.

The average person’s hair grows a quarter of an inch per month. And while there isn’t one miracle cure for faster hair growth, there are several steps you can take to help speed up the process. I can’t say for sure which one of these tricks is responsible for my quick-fire strands, but if you’re looking to add some length to your locks, trying them all can’t hurt…

Try prenatal vitamins.
Most prenatal vitamins contain biotin (along with iron and folic acid), which is said to promote healthy hair growth. Biotin will not only help your hair grow longer faster, but your skin and nails will reap the benefits too. Of course, it is best to consult your doctor before taking a new type of vitamin supplement.

Stick to healthy hair diet.
As you might remember this from Lauren’s Foods for Heavenly Hair post, whole grains, along with foods rich in calcium and the amino acid cysteine all promote hair growth. Cysteine is found in foods including poultry, eggs, red peppers, garlic, onions, Brussels spouts, yogurt, oatmeal, and broccoli. And if you prefer to stay away from supplements like the ones mentioned above, you can get your biotin from nuts (especially almonds and peanuts) egg yolks, soybeans, and fish.

Indulge in a scalp massage.
According to DailyGlow.com, giving yourself an at-home scalp massage increases blood flow to the scalp, which helps nutrients get to your follicles more quickly. So when you’re shampooing or rinsing your hair, try massaging your head with your fingertips to stimulate hair growth.

Time for a little myth busting…

I’ve always heard that frequent trims make your hair grow faster. But the research I did for this post (along with my own personal experience—I tend to go longer than recommended between trims) revealed that tip to be completely false. Since hair grows out of the scalp, trimming the ends will not affect its growth.

That said, split ends could lead to breakage, which makes maintaining your length difficult. To avoid split ends and breakage, keep heat styling and processing to a minimum, and use only non-damaging hair elastics. As I learned from Lauren’s Beauty book, if you tie your hair in the same place every day you will notice a line of breakage where the hair tie hits.

Are you trying to grow out your hair?

I hope that all of these tips help! Let me know how it’s going in the comments.

    Fantastic tips! So glad you mentioned the “”myth”” above. I’ve been telling my friends this forever and they all look at me like I’m crazy lol.

  • Brenna Gray

    This post couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m about to donate at least 10 inches to Locks of Love on June 22nd for the first time ever. I know after cutting my hair that I will miss it so I will want to grow it out as fast as I can again. My advice is not to get complete trims at the salon and just go through your hair every now and then and trim off any dead ends you see. I also switch up my shampoos and conditioners to give my scalp a change. Wearing your hair down and natural also helps. Unfortunately, my hair grows so slow naturally so hopefully some of your tricks can work. Thanks!

    Also, does anyone know of any cute haircuts for after donating your hair?

  • Ana Sofia

    These tips are very useful…I cut my hair too much and now want that it grow as fast as possible!

  • BoilerLeah

    You should take a look at the blog Girl Meets Glam… I’m planning to donate mine once it grows another 2 inches and I want her haircut!!! Also, do your research about hair donations, LoL might be the most well-known, but there are other organizations out there that do more with the hair you send them. LoL uses only a small portion of what they get sent, and even small portion is GIVEN away; most wigs are SOLD. I donated to Wigs4Kids last time and they were so grateful! I received a hand-written thank you card!

  • BoilerLeah

    I think you should stress the part about wearing hair ties and heat styling… Frizz and ‘fly-aways’ are constant problems for almost everyone. Limiting the damage from heated tools and elastics can greatly improve your hair at the middle to ends. Embrace the BRAID! :)

  • photosbyjaana

    But I’m wondering if anyone can help me with a slightly different problem.. I noticed my hair is falling out a lot lately compared to normal. Does anyone know whether I should be worried and/or what I can do to stop it from falling out so much?

  • kaeleigh morton

    I love these tips! I started using biotin as a daily vitamin for the last few months and it has made my hair so much softer and its already starting to grow more! I suggest it to anyone who is trying to grow their hair out!

  • Fienerd

    I had the same problem some years ago, my hair was falling out in tons! I didn’t even dare to comb my hair anymore.. But I went to the pharmacist and they gave me some awesome vitamins! After a month my hair stopped falling out :)

  • Savvy

    It’s true: trims won’t necessarily make your hair grow faster, but if you get split ends, trims can keep your hair looking healthy and not dull.

  • Shoegal Out In The World

    Great tips… I have bangs & it is nice to know that I can grow them faster if I ever get tired of them…

    I think I need to jump on this Biotin bandwagon!

  • Shelby Kirksey

    yes, hair grows from your scalp but when split ends start to split they don’t stop splitting. so when you go in for a trim you must trim more length off the ends! and instead of pre-natals which contain too many hormones you can buy biotin from GNC!

  • Meadows

    What is a good shampoo and conditioner? I have foiled blonde hair. I have a lot of hair but it’s thin. My scalp tends to get oily and my ends are dry. I currently use Pureology that my hair dresser suggested but it hasn’t change anything. Any suggestions?
    PS I love Biotin! It really does help hair growth. I do however get my hair trimmed every 8 weeks because of my split ends :(

  • Vanessa De Jesus

    Prenatal vitamins are just that, vitamins. They do NOT contain hormones. They are a combo of vitamins similar to multi-vitamin.
    In case you werent sure hormones are made by specialized glands or tissues throughout the body. A vitiamin isnt a hormone creater or reducer.

  • Hmarie

    My hair use to be the same way. I only condition my roots once a week the rest of the time I only condition the ends to about right below my ears. I also use a sulfate free deep conditioning mask mixed with macadamia nut oil and pure Virgin coconut oil( I mix in the oils myself) Once a week. Make sure you’re using sulfate free shampoo/conditioner and also try to find something with a low alcohol content. The higher it is on the list of ingredients the higher the content.

  • Hmarie

    If you buy all natural prenatals they contain no hormones. just take half the recommended dose because those doses are meant for supplying nutrients to 2 people.

  • Raven Locks

    These are really great tips! My friend actually used prenatal vitamins before her wedding and it really helped to grow it out faster. Diet plays a huge role in healthy hair! You’re right about that :)

    I was just wondering if you guys knew anything that actually works to make thin hair thicker? I’ve used thickening shampoo and conditioners and I have a really healthy diet and I take women’s daily vitamins. I’m using Kenra moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. I also have the big issue of oily skin/scalp so my friend that just became a stylist told me it was perfectly fine that I wash my hair every day (which I definitely have to if I’m going to be seen in public lol). I’ve done the egg yolk and olive oil treatments but I don’t notice any difference. If you guys could put together a post for thicker hair tricks that really work I’d love it!!! :)

  • Meghan Silva

    I this year decided I want to grow my hair out but it really is so hard , every time it gets to a great length “”the split ends”” are snipped and I’m back to short , I’m going to try to avoid snipping it and see how that goes.

    http://meghansilva.blogspot.com

  • Meagan Felix

    I’ve been using Mane & Tail shampoo and conditioner for about two months now, and it’s helped tremendously with growth and thickness. I’ve been seeing new sprouts of hair at the top of my scalp, too! I also have a healthy diet and take vitamins, but I really started to notice a difference once I started using horse shampoo! It has coconut oil in it, which probably contributes a lot. Highly recommend!

    Heey! I have a cuestions,

  • Liz Ashbaugh

    This is great, thank you! I am trying to grow my hair out for my wedding in December. I have also found that using good quality hair products is helpful. For example, when I switched from drugstore/grocery store shampoo and conditioners, I noticed a big difference in my hair’s health and growth rate. I use Pureology now because I highlight my hair, and it really does help!

    I grew my hair out for my wedding last April and the best thing I did was give myself monthly hair masks. You can find a lot of good recipes on Pinterest (I’ve used mayo, olive oil, honey, etc) and your hair feels so good after. My hair is highlighted too and the treatments are safe for color treated hair. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

    Great article. I started to grow my hair out last year but I had to go in and have it cut since it was a pixi and had different lengths, most of my hair now is the same length so hopefully some of these tips help so i can get back to my long hair.

  • Rachael Ferenc

    I am always wanting long hair! I have my cosmetology license and am always trying new products. I do take Biotin everyday and have been for a about 1.5 years, seems to work but more on my nails that hair.

    I actually wanted to share a line that I recently started using.
    It’s called Surface and its organic and absolutely amazing for rejuvenating hair. I deal with a few health issues and the medications I have been on have messed with my hair a lot by thinning and becoming very fragile. I also have highlights so the bleach doesn’t necessarily help that but I love blonde!

    check out the website on this product if you’re interested :) It’s similar to Nioxin line but way better, and more concentrated so it lathers up really well.

    I use the AWAKEN line, along with the AWAKEN leave in Therapeutic Treatment — also great for skin/acne! — to use in troubled areas that have hard time growing (like the front if you flat iron a lot)

    I don’t do any of these and yet my hair grows wayyyyy too fast! I wonder if I am doing something! who knows, but my I cut my hair a little longer than my chin length and its below my shoulders now, only been 8 months! I can’t wait to cut it and donate it! But when I was pregnant I took prenatals and my hair grew even quicker and nails too! So ladies, do it if you want to grow your hair quick!!! :)))

    If you make the commitment to closely follow the five steps below, not only will you grow long hair but your hair will be in beautiful condition throughout the process. Read my tips below…

    1. Comb your hair daily. This will help stimulate hair growth. Even if you’re at work, be sure to take constant breaks to brush your hair, just don’t get caught.

    2. Moisturize your hair. Find a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that adds volume to your hair.

    3.Use hair packs once a week to put sustenance in your hair. Much the same as your skin, hair too requires some product of spoiling on a general foundation and cutting edge hair packs help give a clean sparkle to your hair.

    4. Trim your hair regularly. You want to do this to get rid of split ends and to add shape to your hair.

    5. Uphold to an exceptional diet. Your hair too requires the reliable support of an adjusted eating regimen to develop well. Just ensure that all your meals have enough protein and iron in them.

    what conditioner/shampoo will make your hair grow faster and longer?

  • Ginny23

    I have fine, thick, long hair that goes to my bum, I also work at Ulta and have had experimented with many different products, this is what i’ve learned:

    Trim your hair!!! Its really a must if you want long HEALTHY hair, I trim mine every two-three months and take off half an inch. There’s no point growing your hair super long if it looks awful and is in bad condition.

    Sulfate Free strengthening Shampoo, and Conditioner! I have used tons of products from Salon brand to drugstore, I have really seen no difference between them but whatever you pick, get something that say its for Strengthening I recommend: John Frieda, Pantene, L’oreal Everstrong, Matrix, Paul Mitchell, any of those I enjoyed.

    Get a leave in product. This is the key and will be more important then what you wash your hair in because it will be staying in your hair all day. Also if you are going to splurge on anything do it on this, I have definitely noticed an improvement in my hair with the leave in products I use. Look for products with these key words: strengthening, repair, keratin, protein. My favorite products: Its a 10, Redken Extreme Anti-Snap, AG Fast Food, Biosilk Therapy 17. Any of those are awesome! Bonus: Biosilk silk therapy for extra moisture and shine :)

    Also I don’t dye my hair, and rarely heat style, which I know is hard for most people but I really believe this is a big reason why my hair is so healthy and long. I used to style it more and noticed a lot of breakage and distress compared to when I didn’t.

    As far as growing your hair faster, that is up to you! How fast and how long your hair grows is literally determined by your GENES. Don’t be fooled by quick fixes. Using straightening products, and keeping your hair healthy are really great for reaching your full potential length, but just know some people literally cannot grow their hair past a certain length before it sheds. Hair has a growth cycle of approx 24-48 months, and grows approx 1cm per month. So depending on the individual (and this depends on both genetic and environmental factors) your hair will grow to 24-48cm long before it falls out.

    Your hair growth is affected by your metabolism. So if you can speed up your metabolic rate you can make your hair grow faster. Your metabolism is set by both genetic and environmental factors. Changing your diet will have an impact on your hair. Eating a high protein diet with good levels of iron and zinc can make your hair grow faster. So eat heathy! I take a daily vitamin cause lets face it a high protein diet is a lot to handle.

  • Ginny23

    Get a leave-in! Shampoo and Conditioner are in your hair so briefly they hardly do anything lasting. This coming from an Ulta employee with fine/blonde/long/ oily hair i’ve tried a ton of products and this is what i found works best: Its a 10, Redken Extreme Anti-Snap, AG Fast Food, Biosilk Therapy 17. My absolute fave is Its a 10 because I can put it on my scalp and not be greasy!

  • muhreesuh_bee

    QUICK NOTE! VERY IMPORTANT! Trimming your hair frequently does not change the speed at which your hair grows, HOWEVER it does eliminate the breakage at the bottom due to trichoptilosis.. thus allowing your hair to grow in length. you will see your hair growing longer when trimming it often at the ends, not growing faster at the root.take it from me one year ago my hair was chemically damaged as well as thermally damaged and about at my bra line in the back take a look at my profile pic now!! trim trim trim!

    You really can’t over emphasize how important diet is in having longer, healthier hair! If you put junk in your body, you’ll never have the kind of hair that you want. http://makeyourhairgrowfaster.net/

  • Liza

    Here are some ways you can grow hair fast naturally: Read below…

    • To increase the length of your hair, nip any potential damage in the bud by getting regular trims. Trims just cut the bottom of your hair. These are not meant to cut a lot of inches.

    • You always want to use a wide toothed com b to comb wet hair. Avoid using a brush to brush wet hair fact is, when your mane is wet, it is most likely to be broken and damaged.

    • Use an aloe Vera massage on your scalp, leave it for an hour and then rinse it with warm water. • Another natural approach is to rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar and sage tea.

    • Boiled water with rosemary leaves used as a daily rinse will also strengthen your hair strands even further.

    Growing hair fast naturally is rather simple, but it does take time and persistence. Resist the urge to cut hair or to color it as this will only hurt your efforts to grow out your hair.

    Another good technique is to use a hot oil treatment made of natural herbs to cleanse the scalp and increase blood flow for maximum hair growth.

    What shampoos do you recommend?

  • jessica

    First you need to avoid any chemical shampoos contain:

    • DEA
    • Chemical preservatives
    • Sodium lauryl sulfate
    • Petroleum by-products

    I recommend to use herbal shampoo which has high concentration of hibiscus herbs which will activate new hair growth and also remove any toxins or chemicals that block free hair growth.

    *Tips from http://makemyhairgrowfaster.org

  • Shelley Jarvis

    I have been growing my hair for about 2 years now, and I’ve tried all sorts of shampoos, conditioners hair masks and serums, and I’ve found that the tips above really do help the most! My hairdresser says my hair is kept in really good condition, one of the best she’s seen!! Another tip I would suggest to anyone trying to grow their hair is using a wide tooth comb to brush out when wet which prevents breakages that would occur using a normal brush :) the best shampoo I found that kept my hair healthy and strong was the Aussie volume and Aussie colour mate they smell amazing and leave your hair feeling silky and strong! I would also recommend bumble and bumble surf shampoo and conditioner, and also the thickening shampoos too! :) I would also say that I have found that my hair personally does seem to take breaks in growing, for example one month there seems to be no growth and for the next couple of months after that it seems to grow loads! It is a long process unfortunately so anyone trying to grow their hair need not be disheartened, as it will grow if you look after it :) one more shampoo I heard was good but didnt get to try was the F.A.S.T shampoo by nisim, I couldn’t seem to find it anywhere and it is pretty pricey but YouTube users seem to have good comments about it! As soon as I find it I’m going to try it :) xx

  • Harmony

    The best tip is to eat right. I am a vegetarian and do not eat junk food. My hair is waist length and grows over a inch a month. I use cruelty free, sulfate free keratin enriched shampoo and conditioners. Get your beauty products from a professional salon, never the store as they are full of chemicals and strip the protein out of your hair.

  • Carlene weisberg

    Here are tips on make your hair grow fast for you to flaunt.

    You would need to take good care of your scalp which you may overlook like most people. Shampoos, conditioners and hairstyling products can accumulate and cause buildup of dead skin on the scalp. You will also have to exfoliate it every week to get rid of all these. For home exfoliation, combine equal parts of water with apple cider vinegar and apply this on the scalp. Massage the mixture properly to get proper blood circulation going thus vital nutrients to the hair follicles
    so that it would grow faster.

    Get a prong brush and rub this on your scalp so that the hair follicles would be activated to grow hair faster and to produce more hair. Massage the brush on the scalp daily for ten minutes. After this, get a brush with boar bristles and brush your hair starting from the roots to the tip so that oils would be pulled downwards to the ends. Aim for 100 strokes so as to make your hair healthier.

    Another way on how to get long hair fast is to never wash your hair every day. You can wash it every other day or at least thrice a week. This will help prevent the loss of essential oils that would protect and nourish hair shafts. Shampoo causes hair breakage which in turn causes shorter hair. Shampoo hair when it becomes very greasy which is usually after a couple of days. Use natural shampoo when you wash your hair. Look for those that do not contain any dyes, perfumes and chemicals but natural ingredients.

    Take vitamins everyday so that your body would be healthy enough to make every part of it healthy as well. Go for vitamins such as Vitamin C or biotin. After two months, you will see visibly longer and healthier hair on your head.

    Take vitamins everyday so that your body would be healthy enough to make every part of it healthy as well. Go for vitamins such as Vitamin C or biotin. After two months, you will see visibly longer and healthier hair on your head.

    Hi, I am Carlene. Here are tips on make your hair grow fast for you to flaunt:

    You would need to take good care of your scalp which you may overlook like most people. Shampoos, conditioners and hairstyling products can accumulate and cause buildup of dead skin on the scalp. You will also have to exfoliate it every week to get rid of all these. For home exfoliation, combine equal parts of water with apple cider vinegar and apply this on the scalp. Massage the mixture properly to get proper blood circulation going thus vital nutrients to the hair follicles so that it would grow faster.

    Get a prong brush and rub this on your scalp so that the hair follicles would be activated to grow hair faster and to produce more hair. Massage the brush on the scalp daily for ten minutes. After this, get a brush with boar bristles and brush your hair starting from the roots to the tip so that oils would be pulled downwards to the ends. Aim for 100 strokes so as to make your hair healthier.

    Another way on how to get long hair fast is to never wash your hair every day. You can wash it every other day or at least thrice a week. This will help prevent the loss of essential oils that would protect and nourish hair shafts. Shampoo causes hair breakage which in turn causes shorter hair. Shampoo hair when it becomes very greasy which is usually after a couple of days. Use natural shampoo when you wash your hair. Look for those that do not contain any dyes, perfumes and chemicals but natural ingredients.

    Take vitamins everyday so that your body would be healthy enough to make every part of it healthy as well. Go for vitamins such as Vitamin C or biotin. After two months, you will see visibly longer and healthier hair on your head.

    Hello girls, here are the 3 golden tips that I followed to grow my hair faster.

    1)Load up on vitamin E! Vitamin E will cause your hair to grow much faster then normal. Vitamin E also strengthens your hair, and make your hair shiny. Vitamin E is essential if you want your hair to grow faster.

    2)Believe it or not, if you cut your hair more often, it will make it grow faster! If you trim your hair 3 or 4 time’s a year it will eliminate any split end’s you may have had. Split end’s only stop your hair from growing, so ridding your hair of split end’s will speed up the growing process.

    3)Massage your scalp! Not only do scalp massages feel great, it’s a great way to make your hair grow faster! A scalp massage will increase blood circulation to your hair follicles, condition your scalp, and strengthen the roots of your hair! You can either massage your scalp yourself, or have someone else do it!

    Here’s what you should do to grow your hair longer. Read below..

    The first step is to stop putting your hair under stress –this means you should stop using straighteners and blow dryers – this is because such heating hair tools cause damage and slow down the hair growth process

    Another way on how to make your hair grow faster is to drink plenty of water, about 10 glasses a day will do lots to help your hair grow

    Take an immune booster like aswagandha –it will ensure your hair grows at the fastest rate possible, remember your hair is a reflection of your overall health so be sure to take lots of immune boosters

    Grill, broil and bake foods, never fry your food-also stay away from sugar and lots of junk food as it is not how to make your hair grow faster

    Wear loose hair styles and stay away from styles that pull or tug on your hair. Braids are good choices to use to allow healthy hair growth

    Be sure to massage your head everyday with a good hair oil like Mira hair oil, Mira contains herbs to grow hair but the act of massaging itself will send blood to your scalp and allow fast hair growth

    Cut off split ends and dead ends of your hair, this will prevent breakages and allow hair to grow

    Do not forget to take hair vitamins like Biotin, Vitamin B and C

    Consume lost of fruits and vegetables and low fat proteins to promote hair growth

    I take Biotin to grow out my hair faster, at a dose of about 5000 mcg a day. I also try to eat a plant-based diet and exercise to stay healthy.

  • Ashley

    Great tips and I completely agree that going for regular trims does not make your hair grow faster. I have been growing out my hair for years and the moment I decided to stop going to regular trims was when my hair really started to grow. It’s been months since my last trim and my hair has never been healthier!

  • Sarah Gizzi

    I’m the type of girl that likes the keep things interesting when it comes to her hair. So when the time came for me to chop off my past-boob length hair to a just-below-the-chin bob, I was more than ready. The hardest part since then, looking at old photos. The important thing is to keep a positive mind-set about yourself as you grow back out your hair! Work with what you got while keeping your eyes on the prize.

    • Helana Devine

      You are exactly like me. Gosh. I was just looking at old photos and felt like crying. I recently got a pixie, and I LOVE it, but I want to grow it out again. I hate having the same hairstyle for a while, which was about 2 inches below my chest. Anyway, advice for people with long hair, it’s really fun to have different hairstyles. You can donate your hair to kids who haven’t had hair for years :)

  • Shannon Reiter

    The moment I stopped cutting my hair was the moment my hair started to grow. I also have really dry hair so I probably wash my hair 1-2 times a week and that’s the only time I will apply heat to my hair. I use a leave in conditioner and when I dry my hair I use a styling product to cut the damage in half. Dry shampoo is also one of the best things ever invented. Definitely invest in it.

  • nicole Smith

    Thanks for the tips because my mom is always complaining about how her hair doesn’t grow.

  • Glitter&Bow

    These tips absolutely work. My hair grows over 1.25″” per month. I also take 5000 milligrams of biotin a day and drink TONS of water. Also this might sound crazy but if you get your hair trimmed during a waxing moon cycle it can cause your hair to grow faster. This is scientifically true! Think about how the moon phases effect ocean tides. Same principle. https://www.morroccomethod.com/lunar-hair-chart

  • aly

    My cousin is a hair stylist and gave me some tips in growing and keeping my hair healthy during the 5 months before my wedding. In order to prevent breakage, he said women should trim their ends every 4 to 6 weeks. I found that every six weeks was perfect for me, but I didn’t want to put my hair in the hands of a salon stylist who would chop off too much. Instead, I invested in some hair-trimming scissors (important to prevent future split ends) and trimmed my own hair every 6 weeks. In addition, I avoided shampooing my ends. Shampoos can remove oils which help the ends of your hair stay healthy, so my method was to shampoo my roots only & condition my ends. Two months after my wedding, I’m still keeping up with my trimming routine. My hair has never been longer, and it’s also healthy looking. Hope this helps!

    • Luddy

      Drink lots of water , yes, but not all at once as it could possibly lead to “water intoxication” or even lead to death. So in moderation while using the bathroom every once in a while, Drink plenty of water.

      Also, adding heat to hair makes the hair more damaged and results in lots more split ends resulting in more trims to keep it looking healthy, but it does not make your hair grow slower. It just makes it appear shorter due to the breakage at the ends especially. Also, heat technically stimulates your scalp more which could result in faster hair growth, but I don’t know if that’s been proven.( Either way, avoid heat products at all costs anyways)

      Lastly, genetics / diet / exercise play the hugest roles in hair growth speed.

      And has anyone ever tried the “inversion method” of hair growth? I’ve heard it can make almost anyone’s hair grow an inch in 1 week just by flipping your head upsidedown for 5 minutes every day + massaging warm oil through the scalp while upside down. Lemme know if it works!

      • Ugh.

        It does slow down the growing process of your hair when using too many heating tools and too many dangerous products. ‘Toxic products’

      • Cgirl

        The kidneys can process up to 15L of water per day.

    • jas

      Drink lots of water , yes, but not all at once as it could possibly lead to “water intoxication” or even lead to death. So in moderation while using the bathroom every once in a while, Drink plenty of water. Lots of water is great for your health!

  • Kierie

    I’ve donated my hair to locks of love twice already. My hair grows really fast! I grew up on organic foods and my mom is a hair dresser so I tribute that to the fact that I have healthy hair.

  • Anne

    I saw great results from Healthy Skin for a Happy Life’s all-natural shampoo. My hairdresser can’t believe how fast my hair has been growing since I started using it! It smells good and the company has great ethics :) http://www.healthyskinhappylife.com

  • http://www.dove.in/ Seema

    The other best option for natural hair growth is to try henna . which you apply from the roots to all the hair helps to provide full protein for hair & growth hair in healthy way.

  • ShirleyTemple*

    Taking those pills while not being pregnant is very dangerous.

    • Ashley

      False. Prenatal pills includes everything a woman’s body needs. Pregnant or not.

      • Amber

        No. It is not false. Marketing has lead you to believe you need a multivitamin when in actuality, you shouldn’t need one unless you are malnourished. And prenatal vitamins are called PRENATAL for a reason: They are for pregnant people and many contain well over the daily recommended dosage of vitamins. If you want good hair, eat right. Taking a regular multivitamin instead or simply eating better makes it less likely you will overdose on iron.

        • Nikki

          Prenatal means BEFORE pregnancy…they nourish the body and get it ready for pregnancy and it provides perfect nourishment during pregnancy as well. But no, it is not dangerous in the least. Before you make absolute claims like this, you need to do your research.

          • marveille

            Prenatal doesn’t mean ‘before pregnancy’ , it means ‘before LABOUR’.

          • Giardini Bella

            prenatal does mean before pregnancy I am a nurse, and the pills wont hurt you in fact women need daily folic acid if you of childbearing age.

        • Heather Jones

          It isn’t dangerous that’s why women who are planning to become pregnant can SAFELY take a prenatal pill for years before they become pregnant.

      • Rosie Talley
    • Amy Gabriel, M.D.

      Absolutely false. It is recommended for any woman of child bearing age. Contains all the vitamins necessary for every day living as well as hair and nail health.

    • Cookingcutie

      Incredibly false. My gyno put me on prenatals that way the levels of vitamins are built up in my system. Women are supposed to take a multivitamin daily anyway.

      • Amber

        Why are there so many misinformed people? First of all, I don’t understand why you are saying just women should take a multivitamin every day as though we are weaker and need extra help with our bodies or something. If you are healthy, you do not need a multivitamin! A proper diet is really all you need, otherwise you risk overdosing on elements like B vitamins or iron. Secondly, what is all this “supposed to” crap? Who told you women pregnant or not should take prenatal vitamins? For a woman not going through pregnancy, prenatal vitamins offer dangerous amounts of vitamin B, iron, and folic acid. You guys clearly don’t understand basic science if you think a woman enduring a pregnancy has the same needs as a woman who is not pregnant.

        • Holly

          I’ve had a doctor give me prenatal vitamins BC I was on birth control. They told me it was safe and to take one a day. Every ones body is different and handles things differently. I’m not pregnant and still take it and it hasn’t killed me yet. Idk why you are getting so upset with everyone disagreeing. It is just opinions (:

        • 19yearoldcollegestudent

          You cannot overdose on B-vitamins really because they are water soluble. You can if you take a crapload in one sitting but not with a daily prenatal vitamin. If your body doesn’t need them then you pee them out. Iron is fat soluble so it is possible to cause damage due to overdose BUT women are usually lacking in iron anyway because of our menstrual cycle. THAT is basic science. The fact that you think people can overdose on B vitamins with a multivitamin makes you seem uneducated. Go back to school and take a high school biology course.

      For those who are unsure about taking Prenatals, you can take Biotin instead. It REALLY works! Everyone has commented on how long my eyelashes are and how quickly my hair has been growing (along with good hygiene and healthy eating habits, of course).

    • Kaitlin

      Thats is not dangerous..? Your supost to keep taking prenatals after you have a baby. I have a baby 4 weeks ago and Im still taking them.

  • Amanda

    I took prenatal a to try and grow my hair out cause a friend recommended it.. Later found out I was pregnant.. The vitamins used help with fertility is what my doctor said… This is After I was told I couldn’t have kids

  • Amanda H.

    One of the the best things for your hair is a good shampoo and conditioner. Although it is on the pricey side, Biolage works magical wonders! In two washes, my split ends were gone and my hair was restored to a healthy fullness. This has helped me to go even longer between trims. I also only wash my hair twice a week now, which has helped it grow even faster. I was also informed by my hairstylist that using a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush is essential for keeping your hair’s body and volume as well as allowing you hair to grow longer and stronger. I’m prepping my hair for my wedding, so these are just some extra tips I’ve picked up along the way. My hair grows extremely slow, but ever since I’ve used Lauren’s tips and the tips from my stylist, my hair has doubled it’s growth time! (:

    • Jana

      I agree, Biolage is AMAZING! I see a difference too!

    Trimming your ends does help your hair grow faster because split ends break off way more hair than trimming your ends do.

  • http://www.consumme.com Zsuzsanna P

    Hi Lauren! Thanks for this nice post! I have been also struggling to grow my hair out, but also to keep it healthy (unfortunately I bleached the hell out of it!) I have used the castor and coconut oil mixture once a week, stopped bleaching, I am not straightening it weekly and I am getting trimmed regularly. I tried the brazil keratin treatment and I can definitely recommend that couple of times a year. Does magic to frizzy hair! I have also tried Biotin, and it was okay, but my fav is cod liver oil, soooo great for the skin and hair! Its been 16 months now that I started with the hair growth project, and I just posted this little documentary on my blog, with before after photos. It is just great to see how these things helped me to grow healthy and long hair again. I hope I can motivate some of you to start with this long term project :)

  • athobe

    You’re right, hair does indeed grow from the root. The old tail of getting your hair trimmed does not refer to the actual biological, scientific fact that your hair grows from the root. It just means that if you keep your ends more “dead-end” free, it will break off less. Thus, allowing the locks to be longer. Getting a hair trim every 6 weeks may not be the way to go when wanting your hair to grow, but you definitely need to keep the ends from breaking off if you’re looking for hair growth. Everyone’s hair is different so how to maintain healthy ends/when to get a hair trim should differ….just an FYI

    I lost my hair last year from chemotherapy… And although being bald for my freshmen year of high school wasn’t ideal… I made it work. My hair has started it’s journey once again growing like a weed. In the past 9 months I’ve gone from no hair to roughly 7 inches. But no matter how fast it grows, I can’t help but miss my old hip length tresses. I don’t miss having long hair, I just miss all the braids, buns, ponies, and styles I used to be able to do… I’m lost without my hair. I know hair shouldn’t define who you are as a person, but people don’t know what I’ve been through when they look at me… They just see an awkward 16 yr old with a uneven strange hairdo. I was wondering if there were any tips on feeling comfortable in your own skin while your hair is growth through its “awkward stages”? I have short stick straight blonde hair. And it doesn’t like to cooperate; Plus there’s a lot of it. I think it’s thicker than it used to be…….

    Scalp massage is my favorite thing that I do quite frequently. Not
    necessarily with oils, but I usually massage my scalp as and when
    given a chance. I believe it stimulates the follicles leading to the hair to grow faster.

  • Britt

    Trimming your hair DOES grow faster when you trim it. Your hair is living. You trim it too keep it healthy. Plus if you don’t your hair will spilt and look dead and growing your hair out will be pointless. Heat isn’t the only thing that wil damage your hair. Salt water will, hair dye, some styling and hair products, and most importantly shampoo with harsh chemicals.

    I cut my fried hair on February to a bob :( And all these steps are true..

    •Coconut Oil for scalp massage

  • samantha

    when u massage your scalp, flip your hair upside down (bend over and have all your hair hanging in front of you) then massage, it helps better! :)

  • Jessica

    It’s true trimming it isn’t making it grow faster, it’s just keeping it healthy. The reason it seems like it makes your hair grow faster is because trimming cuts off the ends that people usually damage with hot irons, there for keeping the hair from breaking up the shaft. Ever notice that people with really short hair always complain that their hair grows so fast, and they have to cut it all the time?? It’s cause their bad ends are always being trimmed. Also best advice to grow hair is to stop using hot irons all the time!

    Trimming doesn’t make your hair grow, the truth behind the myth is that spkit ends make hair fragile and causes breakage. Brushing your hair while it’s wet can stretch and break hair also. Best to keep up with split ends, avoid heat damage, and brush when dry, stimulating the scalp as you brush.

    About the frequent hair cutting myth, it works as follows, if you have many split ends, those parts of hair will break off and the length of your hair will not change much, so if you cut your hair, you can prevent this from happening ^.^

    Not true bkus if ur hair is dried and you dont get haircuts in between, your dried and split ends willl only start spliiting upp and eventualty ends up breaking …. So the length will keep breaking ooff … Only if you have healthy hair then u dont need frequent trimmings. …also if you have dry ends its look raggy and you will need to take ooff a huge chunk verses getting half inch trims every 3 months

    Thank you for the myth buster, Ive been saying this for years now, from my own experience, so glad to see I wasn’t the only one.

    That’s average hair growth isn’t it? That’s not very long for 11 months.

    I’m a licensed cosmetologist and trimming your hair regularly is super important. If your ends start to split they can split all the way to your root and your hair will stop growing. So unless you do not color, or use heat on your hair you should definitely get it trimmed. Also using professional grade products will help they have less harsh chemicals than store brands and for the love of God please stop using box dye, it is extremely bad. If you want long healthy hair you can not cut corners…

    Read the farmers almanac and cut your hair on certain days to make it grow faster or other days if you don’t want it to grow fast. Seriously! The moons cycle does have an impact on lots of things from planting your garden to growing hair. There’s a reason this info has been published for centuries! I do it with my little girls and my own hair and I have noticed a difference.
