1. Get rid of the split ends. You may want to visit your local salon if you have any split ends. Doing so will make your hair appear much healthier. 2. Change your coloring habits. If you have damage from hair coloring, it is a good idea to cut down on your coloring habits. Dying hair causes it to become dry and break easily. Wait until your hair grows out to the length you desire, then dye it to the color you would like. (If you need to do a root touch up, try to get a colorer with no ammonia or ask your local beauty supply shop what they recommend you to do.) 3. Pay attention to your health. Health is another important factor in hair growth. If you’re not eating healthy, the same will go for your hair. Try a diet that consists of fruits and veggies, because they are filled with vitamins and protein. 4. Brush your hair and/or stimulate your scalp. Stimulating blood flow to your scalp is another proven way to speed up the growth process as well. Massage your scalp while conditioning for 2-5 minutes. 5. Put away the blow dryers and the flat irons. The heat can be very damaging to your hair. If you blow dry your hair i suggest you let it air dry. If you need to blow dry hair i suggest you use a diffuser. If you flat iron your hair, buy a flat iron with ceramic plates(ceramic plates are less damaging to the hair). Also if your a flat iron user, try and cut down on using it everyday. Try using it once a week instead. 6. Do NOT brush your hair when wet. Brush your hair with your fingers or a wide-toothed comb. When hair is wet, it is very elastic and easily causes breakage. 7. Replace your bristled brush with a wide-toothed comb. Doing so can prevent breakage. 8. Don’t wash your hair everyday. When you wash your hair everyday, you’re getting rid of all the oils your hair produces, which is a big plus to your hair health. Getting rid of these oils can cause your hair to become dry and frizzy. Consider washing your hair every other day instead. Or if you suffer from oily hair, consider picking a day to replace your shampoo and only use your conditioner. If you have curly hair, cut down to only using shampoo once a week. 9. Don’t tie your hair when wet. When you do so, it increases breakage. If you do happen to tie your hair, consider using hair elastics without any metals ends. 10. When getting out of the shower DO NOT dry hair with a towel! Dry your hair with a PAPER TOWEL,(doing so can reduce breakage and frizz). 11. Last but not least have patience. Growing out hair is a long process, but by following these steps you can have the length you desire in no time!
