ashhecker:  How often do you get your hair trimmed? Some women think that they can’t get a haircut if they are trying to grow it longer, but if you don’t cut off the split ends when they are short, they just split further  up the shaft.

As PP mentioned, getting it cut while you grow your hair out is so important. Besides that, I would just recommend using professional products. Sulfate free shampoo will also make a difference.

You should take your biotin every day along with a good multivitamin.  Avoid using hair ties that pull your hair and wear a satin bonnet at night.  As PP suggested using sulfate free shampoos and frequent trims will also help.  Stop using heat all together.  Once a month do a deep conditioning teratment mask that sits on your hair for about 45min- 1hr before you rinse.  Do not color yor hair or do any permanent treatments.  Brush your hair several times a day to distribute the natural oils. 

Do some research to find out what type of hair you have and use products designed for your type of thair.

The best advice for amazing hair is to baby it. Look at your diet and up your water intake. Prior to my wedding I visited my stylist every 8 weeks for a trim and I switched to Biolage shampoo and conditioner plus coconut oil masks weekly. All if it worked and my bob haircut did grow To past my shoulders. Biotin will also help a lot.

just a few pieces of advice to add to what others have said: don’t brush your hair when it’s wet, unless it’s with a vent brush. other types of brushes are way too harsh on wet hair. i see people (even some hair stylists) brush wet hair all the time and it makes me cringe. and don’t put your hair in a pony tail, bun, etc. while it’s wet either. this can cause breakage.

ashhecker:  My hair grows very fast now. I have been using O&M ‘hyhdrate & conquer’ shampoo and ‘seven day miracle’ conditioner for nearly a year (once or twice a week) and now my hair is very healthy and shiny. I used to get a lot of split ends very quickly after a cut and now, even though I’m a couple of months overdue from my quarterly trim, I still have no split ends.

(This is on the back of my O&M shampoo.)
It’s easily the greatest stuff I’ve used and for many reasons. 

I also use a medium claw clip instead of hair ties, unless a tie is necessary (eg. to seal braid), use satin pillowcases, brush gently from tips to roots and I do not use hair sprays or styling products – just a little leave-in conditioner. A massive thing that helped me also, I STOPPED all heat styling and heat drying on my hair. That act alone made a massive difference for the growth and overall quality of my hair.

ashhecker:  I am in the curly hair club too! My hair is type 2C-3A, according to http://hairtype.naturallycurly.com/, and it is very, very long (to my navel when dry). I only brush my hair, when it has conditioner in it, with a vent hairbrush or plastic afro comb. I know they say not to brush hair when wet, but it’s common knowledge that curls just go into a messy frizz otherwise and then cannot be properly styled as curls.

I live in Perth Australia, and I buy it from my salon. I have seen it in other boutique salons as well, so I’d just have a look around. Though depending on where you are in the world, you can also buy O&M online (http://originalmineral.com/).
