@anon00:  It could also be your pillow case.  The satin or silk pillow cases helps prevent breakage.  I would also also wrap your hair in a silk scarf not put it into a pony tail.  Putting it in a ponytail seems counterintuitive; you might end up pulling at your hair in your sleep.

@anon00:  Ah, ok.  Well, don’t stress about your hair.  If all else fails, you can always use hair pieces/extensions.  No one would know the difference!

Mid back is pretty long. Some people have trouble growing their hair super long and I’m not sure why but yours sounds like its already pretty long. Are you eating enough good fat? Hair, skin, and nails all require essential fatty acids. Otherwise I don’t think there’s any magic out there for you.

@anon00:  I have been growing my hair out for 5 YEARS! I became obsessed after my husband proposed and I tried it all. I’m a vitamin freak and I take those daily anyhow, but eveything I tried just made my hair silkier. I have blond, fair hair that is super straight so I never even use a sraightener. I wore a ballgown dress and I had always wanted my hair down but didnt want to deal with extensions on our honeymoon, which we we left for the very next morning.

It was 2 days before my wedding and I was in Sally’s getting a top coat and I saw a “fun bun” type hair peice that was the EXACT color of my hair for $12. So I bought it and decided to wear my hair up and use this weird ponytail holder with hair all over it and it looked awesome!

So I guess my point is don’t worry, and don’t freak out over it! There are a ton of things you cna do to your hair to make it look longer/fuller! Some peoples hair just does not grow very much and it sounds like we are 2 of those people!

Here is a pic of my fake bun. No one could even tell it wasn’t my real hair!

My hair was really damaged from some bad highlighting experiences, and I got it long and healthy by washing/conditioning with Matrix Sleek products.  I also use argan oil pretty frequently on my hair, especially the ends.

I would think that sleeping with a ponytail would 1) feel uncomfortable and 2) lead to more breakage.

@anon00:  A ponytail will break your hair. I don’t know about helping grow, but I found this stuff recently that is amazing!

I have been growing my hair out since we got engaged and it was getting dry. All the stuff at the store has water and alcohol as the first two ingredients which will dry it out. So I searched and found this: Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Deep Treatment Hair Masque – it is amazing! So much easier to apply than coconut oil and smells great. It has shea, argon oil, sea kelp, avocado oil, vit B & E… amazing! not a fake thing in there. A girlfriend at work told me that she and her sisters use it all the time (they have black hair and this helps it stay shiny). I just use a dab or do it roots to tips, let it sit for 30 min then wash it out. I would say it’s a lifesaver!

Here’s a link to it on Amazon but honestly, I found it for $9.99 at Target so don’t overpay!!! 🙂 http://www.amazon.com/Shea-Moisture-Organic-Butter-Treatment/dp/B0038U4U3M/

@anon00:  Also, don’t sleep with wet hair! That causes problems too.

Honestly, I think people have a length programmed into them. I have never been able to get my hair to grow longer than a few inches below my shoulders. I could not cut it for years and it would be that length. It grows fast when short then stops!

If you notice this point, don’t be sad, that’s just your length. Try to keep it as healthy as possible at that length. Regular trims, non-sulfate shampoo and conditioner, not too much heat, and don’t put it up very often. Ponys break your hair.

Find the beauty at YOUR length! Don’t compare it too much to others. 🙂
