Are you doing anything special to care for it to push it past ur usual length?
I’ve started using a heat protection and a shampoo meant for color treated, highlighted, or damaged hair. That’s about it. I’m at the length now that I usually cut it off to my chin..Resisting the urge!

Me! My hair is about an inch above shoulder length right now. I have 8 months to grow it as long as I can so I have options. Seems like a lot of time but if it grows 1/2 inch a month, that’s only 4 more inches.
So I’m doing everything I can think of to help it along. I’m taking hair vitamins and omega-3’s and trying to drink more water. I’ve also started using cleansing conditioner instead of shampoo (L’Oreal Evercreme is the bomb). I have stopped blow drying it, and I never flat iron or color it. When it’s wet, I use a comb instead of a brush to detangle it. All these things may not make it grow faster, but they should reduce breakage and split ends so it’s healthier and so I don’t need trims.

Yes! I have gone “No Poo” in order to stop breakage and keep my hair healthy. Although I sometimes break and use regular shampoo.

A friend told me about Maxi-Hair – it’s basically packed full of B vitamins. I was never good about taking it – and it made me pee bright yellow!

I am, i try not to blow dry it or straighten it for the most part. I probably need a tiny trim, it is pretty healthy, but i want to take care of that before my hair trial

Me, even though I just put it through the ringer to lighten the colour. I’ll start babying it again once I get the colour right (not that I haven’t been taking care of it). I generally try to shampoo every 2-3 days and as a result only heat style every 2-3 days. I condition it with a conditioning masque at least once a week. I already take a regular multi vitamin, a flaxseed oil pill (omega 3) and a calcium chew daily but I’ve hear prenatals are great for hair and nails. Even though you’re growing it make sure you get trims to reduce split ends and breakage.

Mine was long to begin with and I’m actually debating cutting it! It’s half way down my back and I’m wondering if it would actually be better if I cut it so there is less/its not too heavy. My hair is also extremely thick.

I am growing my hair out. Its almost at the butt region. 🙂 I have thin hair so the longer I grow it out the more hair the stylist will have to work with.
Im conditioning it.
ANd taking prenatal vitamins. No Im not pregnant nor trying to become prengnant, but I have heard that it is GREAT for nails and hair. Infact my nails havent split since Ive started taking the prenatal vitamins!

@TequilaSunrise: I have been growing mine out since he proposed last February and the only special thing I’ve done to speed up the growth is using breakage to strength shampoo so I can skip getting hair trims. My hair dresser said she can’t believe how nice it is or how healthy after not cutting in for a year… the expensive shampoo has paid off and I haven’t had it cut in over a year now. I don’t curl it, blow dry it or flat iron it. I color is once every 9 months or so and I only use conditioner at the ends.

I’m doing the usual: change shampoo brand everytime I finish a bottle, my hair gets used to a producs so is always healthy to change it.
I recently bought a brazilian ketarine treatment but I’ll wait till my hair needs more repair to use it.

I am and also something that has helped a ton is that I crush up prenatals and mix it with my conditioner. It has been helping a ton!
