Oh man, I couldn’t live without hair product until my hair grew out. It bring me back to flashback of elementary school.  Lots of types of curly hair sans product is just a ball o frizz

@kfricke89: The trimming keeps your hair from splitting, and stops splits already in progress. That keeps your hair from breaking and thus slowing down the growth process.It’s true that regular trims (1/4 inch every couple of months) will help your hair appear to grow faster (when in fact, it is merely preventing breakage/loss)

I would bet that the OPs hair “doesn’t grow quickly” because of the overprocessing and heat damage – it causes breakage that can make it seem like it isn’t growing as fast. Lay off the hair dye, go au naturale with the styling, and wash it every other day like the other ladies suggested. Your hair is already pretty long, so in 9 months, it should be super long!

@Belle2Be:  Compared to Suave/VO5…  Clairol is a good conditioner.  Compared to the stuff I used when my hair fell out, it’s useless.  But I can’t afford $40 a bottle.

I agree with a lot of the PPs. Keep the split ends trimmed off so that they don’t knot up your other hair and cause more breakage. Avoid heat styling/blow drying/product as much as you can. One thing that I like to do is to give myself a nice little scalp massage while watching tv *like during Teen Mom, since you’re a fan, too 🙂 * It helps to get the blood circulating and also massages the natural oils further down the shaft of your hair. I’m a ‘hair lady’ too, growing it out for my wedding since I was a freshman in college, and now it’s down past my bra strap! If you baby your hair for the next 6-8, eat healthy, and do some nice scalp massages each night, you can see some nice results before your wedding. Good luck!!

when you ladies say don’t wash your hair every day, is it still OK to use conditioner every day, or will that make it greasy?

my dilemma is, i need to wash mine every day b/c i work out at lunch and get sweaty! I can’t go back to work with sweat running down my neck, lol. i know its probably drying out my hair but i just use conditioner in the shower and leave my hair in a wet pony the rest of the afternoon. then i come home and wash it and condition it … don’t blow dry… but style it in the morning w/ a flat iron…

@cherrycoke:I’d apply the conditioner to just the part of your hair that makes up your pony tail to help prevent any greasiness by the scalp.

@cyneswith: Oops sorry I didn’t mean to sound condescending or anything! I’m a licensed cosmetologist, so I had to LOL 🙂

BUT but but, it shouldn’t cost you 40 a bottle. I know salons like Hairmasters and Regis both have sales often that sell duos, 2 liters (1 shampoo and 1 conditioner) for cheap, like $24. That will seriously last you months.

My hair grows at a nice rate, and I use shampoo, styling products, and hair color (premature white.) I do not, however, blow dry.

And you can shampoo daily if you use a sulfate free shampoo. Trader Joe’s makes nice ones for less than $5 a bottle.

Try the B vitamin complex, including biotin, and get plenty of sleep. 

Hair growth, however, is determined by overall health and genetics.

@Belle2Be:  you can also get the duos on sale a lot of times at hair cuttery or great clips for about the same price or a little less

I’m also growing my hair out for the wedding. If I can’t get it as long as I want for the big day then I’m going to look into extentions.

Do the “HAIR SKIN AND NAILS” vitamens. I used those for a while and my hair grew faster than norm. Massage your head, it stimulates growth. When Shampooing and Conditioning use COLD water. (This one is hard) Deep condition frequently. Get a satin pillow case!

These are all the tips I have heard. I just went from Natural BLONDE to a BURNETTE for the first time in my life, my hair looks sooooo much healthier now. I still miss my blonde but I think it will be good for my hair.
