Oh man, that stinks!

I was sort of in the same boat as you a few years ago. Needed my hair to grow longer, but it was short due to a bad cut/poor nutrition at college.

If you have not yet, I suggest getting a really good hair cut. Get rid of all the dead ends, etc.

I started taking folic acid and biotin, along with a multivitamin. I have known some people to take pre-natal vitamins, and those worked, too, but I choose the folic acid/biotin, since those have been proven to grow hair. In the past two years, my hair has grown SO long and I have new, thicker regrowth all the time. Those two supplements have really done wonders. My entire family started commenting on my hair a few months ago, they even started to notice it. Also, make sure your diet has enough protein.

Use a non SLS (Sulfate) shampoo, no 1! It’s the leading cause of hair loss in younger men and women, and also causes thinning hair, as in thinner shafted hair. Plenty of good ones you can research online, my fave being the Live Clean brand. Even though baby shampoos are SLS free, they don’t have the cleansing power for adult hair, so don’t use them.

Take a prenatal every day. I have for the past 2 months and my hair has grown from barely grazing bra strap to past bra stap!

Use a reconstructor on damaged hair once a week, like the Joice K-pak reconstructor. You have to shampoo first, and apply the reconstructor to your hair once you’ve squeezed/shaken the excess water out. Since the instructions on the bottle aren’t well written: leave it in for 5 minutes and not a second longer. Rinse out, and then do a deep conditioning for about 5 minutes too.

Since I’ve started working out regularly, I’ve seen tons of extra growth! I went from barely working out at all, to doing medium to intense cardio for around 40 minutes 3-5 times a week, in the middle of February. The difference is huge! Random people at work have been noticing, too.

So if you’re not working out regularly, start now, and maybe it’ll help you, too! I hear it has to do with increased circulation, which affects your scalp as much as it does the rest of your body.

ETA: Also, if you’re experiencing breakage problems, watch how you’re doing ponytails. I used to have a shoulder-length breakage problem, and my stylist knew without even asking that I did a low ponytail/bun every single day in the same place, because that’s where it was all breaking off. If you do this regularly like me, try moving it around – put it higher one day, off to the side the next day, and you won’t be stressing one spot over and over again. Also, loose clips, rather than elastics, help too!
