My hairstylist recently chopped off 3 inches when I specifically said 1!!! My hair, which was halfway down my back is now several inches shorter. True, I needed the split ends cut off and it does look healthier, but I can’t help to feel bummed that I won’t have it as long for my wedding in 6 months. So I’m thinking of not cutting it at all until after the wedding–hopefully it will grow a few inches by then …
So ladies, do share your fast hair growing secrets with us–if you have any!
Here’s what’s worked for me in the past: scalp massage & lots of protein/greens

I’ve always heard (not sure if it is true) that frequent little trims actually make the hair grow faster! So I would still get a few trims before the wedding, but just tiny trims. And don’t go to the same person! And tell the stylist that your wedding is coming soon and you only want a tiny trim. I can tell you what works for me. Prenatals! Ever since I started taking them, my hair is much healthier and grows faster.

I’ve heard fish oil helps, a couple of girls on the volleyball team have long gorgeous hair and wear by them. Good luck!!

I have always kept long hair! I get trims frequently to maintain health and take biotin daily. My hair is very long and healthy 🙂

There is nothing that makes it grow faster but when getting dead ends trimmed every 8 wks or so it doesn’t split up the shaft so you notice less breakage. Taking prenatals and biotin strengthens it as well, therefore noticing less breakage as well so you think it’s growing faster. Normal hair grows .5 inches a month. I’ve been taking both since last April and my hair has grown 7 inches about. But Irecently went back brunette and it’s growing nicely now:) I was a nice beige blonde but my hair in front was breaking bc thats where your hair gets damaged the most. Use Its a 10 miracle spray!!! Best stuff and lasts forever. Use it 3-4 times a wk every other day. Try not to use alot of heat as well or this spray to protect it:) GL!!

I second the “It’s a 10” even if it really doesn’t do much. I bleach the crap out of my hair. And at points it felt like straw, and it helped.

I am about to tell you something that may potentially ignite an obsession, change your lifestyle, and (if you like to experiment) cost you money…
You have been warned.

1. Avoid heat. If you can, air dry. Quit the flat iron. Try no heat curls like the sock bun or pin curls.
2. Use a wide-tooth hair pick and SLOWLY untangle your hair from the bottom up. Never use a brush from the top of your head to the bottom unless it’s untangled first.
3. Spread a bit of pure coconut oil on your hair, leave on for 1 hour, shampoo out. Your hair will be baby soft.
4. Find a stylist who is willing to “dust” your ends- a slow process of cutting only the damaged ends off your hair.
5. Get some good fats in your diet- peanut butter, eggs, avacados, almonds. These will make your hair glisten.
6. Don’t use the small pony tail holders, they cause breakage- try to put your hair up in a bun using only bobbypins. They are much less damaging. As your hair grows longer, explore the wonderful world of braids. They’re a great way to keep your hair from being tangled or damaged.
7. Sleep with your hair in a large braid to prevent hurried morning breakage from untangling.
Some of these are just healthy hair tips, but combined made a huge difference in my hair health and helped me grow it out.

A hair dresser recently did the same thing to me. I’m trying a dailymultivitamin.
Sunlight makes nails grow faster, so it wouldprobably also hold true for hair. When I say sun I mean like 10-15 minutes of being outside a day. not tanning or anything because uv rays actually damage your hair.
