Vitamin E is supposed to help hair and nails grow. Maybe take that?

I don’t know if this works, but a friend of mine told me your hair will grow if you put chile juice on it. She also said to avoid getting it in your eyes at all costs, so maybe not the safest route.

I have been taking Biotin for healthy nails/hair.  I have only taken it for 3 weeks but my nails feel stronger.  Not sure if it’s in my head or not but I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

I had really great results with the Therapro line. It also made new hair grow (so more hair, do it well before the wedding so you don’t have “whispies”)

Eat well; and eat healthy fats/oils. Take fish oil caplets with vitamin E (double whammy for hair health). And don’t wash your hair every day; wash it every other day.

It may not necessarily make your hair grow faster, but it will make your hair healthier and healthy hair can be longer hair because it’s not dry and breaking.

This is awesome advice! I’ve been growing mine out since late March and it’s nowhere near as long as I’d like to be…

Biotin and Vitamin E… also, if you “play nice” with your hair (i.e. stop the straightening and blow drying and only wash every two days) it will grow stronger and longer AND you won’t need a cut as often. I do the above and cut it at 2-3 months growth (usually an inch or less is cut) and I end up gaining about two inches in that time. My hair is already down to the bottom of my shoulder blades in a short amount of time. I’ll probably grow it a couple more inches before the wedding.

Try prenatal vitamins – they contain biotin and will help your hair grow. The other vitamins and minerals won’t don you any harm either – quite the opposite actually 🙂

I second hergreenapples suggestion.  My best friend who happens to be a pro hair stylist says that the prenatal vitamins will give you everything you need to make your hair and nails grow strong and longer fast.  When she suggested it to me it made me start thinking….how many people did I know that were pregnant or trying to get pregnant and thier hair was growing so long in a short time?  I tried it…and it really worked!

I heard massageing your head helps hair grow and prevents gray hair

I’d like to echo what abbyful said and add that if you get your hair trimmed regularly it will stay healthier and grow out better as well.

Pre-Natal vitamins.  They make everything grown thicker and stronger.  My hair was cut to my chin in January and is now to the center of my back.  You don’t have to be getting pregnant to take them either. My hair dresser told me that lots of regular donaters to locks for love take them. I asked my gyno and she said my hair dresser was accurate and here I am with much longer hair and uterus is ready just in case.

i’ve been taking just a multi vitamin and it has been doing wonders for me. i was never one to really take vitamins before so maybe that is why.

 

i’ve heard prenatal vitamins work as well. but they are more expensive than regular multivitamins…so i did some research

 

Despite the popular belief that prenatal vitamins are good for hair growth, there is no evidence to suggest that this is true. While pregnant women often notice faster hair growth (along with fuller, thicker hair), this is probably due to pregnancy hormones, rather than the prenatal vitamins.Prenatal vitamins do not contain hormones or any other substances that are exclusively for pregnant women. Prenatal vitamins are very similar to multivitamins, except they usually have a little more folic acid and iron (and various other vitamins and minerals).

im sure either one will work.

ive been taking the up and up target brand womens daily.
