@Papillion:  Take vitamin B and Biotin. Costco sells a good hair, skin, and nails vitamin. I think it is just called Hair, Skin, and Nails. You could probably find it online if you don’t have Costco.

Last year I had hair down to my bum.  I wasn’t engaged at the time and had family members fighting cancer.  I went into the salon, chopped it off to above my shoulders, and donated it.

Now I’m engaged and trying to grow it back out for the wedding.  I was a straight chopwhen I donated because we were trying get it as long as possible.  After it grew out quite a bit, I got it chopped again to give it shape (layers, angles, and de-bulking).  Now I’m waiting for it to grow out again. 

I don’t regret cutting it: I loved being able to donate it.  But I do look back on pictures and miss how long it was.  Oh well.  It’s hair; it will grow back in no time!

@Papillion:  I would definitely take them separately. Your multivitamin probably does not have as much in it as a straight vitamin b or biotin pill would, or the combined Hair, Skin, and Nails pill.

@Papillion:  Despite what people would like you to think, there’s no magical pill/vitamin/supplement/concoction you can eat or put on your hair to make it grow fast, unfortunately. Believe me, I tried when I had the bleaching disaster of ’07 lol. At least you can put your hair into a ponytail – that’s really something! My hair had to be chopped boy short. I do recommend getting trims at least every few months, especially if you get split ends. It’ll take you longer to get your hair back to where you want it if the split ends go up your hair shaft and you need more of it cut off.

I would find some ideas on Pinterest or wherever of hairdos you like for medium length hair and then get your hairdresser to recreate it for the grad pictures.

I remember when I did that… I think you just have to let it grow out, and if you really want your graduation portraits to look great, try going to a stylist and seeing what they can do for you?

I wanted my hair to grow out so badly again that I just didn’t go to the salon for about a year, until it was longer. The dead ends sucked, but at the time I was crazy busy in university and didn’t care…
