How to grow hair naturally, that is the burning question. So you chopped your hair and regretted how you even did it in the first place. Let me guess, post-breakup blues, you saw a rad pixi hairstyle on Instagram, or overall just for a change. I had my fair share of “what-was-I-thinking” hair moment. Now unlike “Leslie” my doll who became my first “client” at a tender age of 6 (precocious moi got hold of scissors, cut her long blonde hair, thinking it will grow back), thankfully our mane does grow back. Are there tips to accelerate? scroll below for my two cents worth.
First and foremost, be patient because to grow hair naturally means setting realistic expectations. Our hair grows on average half an inch per month. There is really no hard and fast rule when it comes to accelerated hair growth because our hair dynamics are largely determined by genetics and partly our individual practice.
Anecdotally on hair products and limited clinical studies on oral supplementation, keratin has been cited to preserve the integrity of hair and prevent hair loss. Quite unrelated but my eyelash game is strong because the product I use has keratin in it.
I know it can be difficult under hot and humid climate but try your best not to shampoo your hair every day because it depletes hair’s needed moisture. The smell as well as texture of your hair will signal you when it’s dirty and funky.
After your final rinse, follow a leave-in argan oil, massaging hair from roots to tips; this process helps keep the hair hydrated and look nourished.
Trim split ends right away before they get worse which will require a bigger chop if caught too late.
Lastly, take a break from styling tools. Frequent use and abuse can lead to fried hair which will affect the rate of your hair growth.

Great tips! I have fast growing hair, but sometimes we all have 1 (or more) unfortunate haircuts. 🙂
I find it hard emotionally not to wash my hair daily like I used to but I know it's better for me now that my scalp isn't oily. I know that hair grows slowly but my roots somehow grow twice as fast.
Great recommendations. I used to wash my hair every day and as I've aged into my middle 30's I notice a definite thinning of my hair, so I've stopped doing that. I wish I would have done it earlier.
Excellent tips! I had waist length hair for a loooooong time when I was young, but the weight of my thick, coarse hair weakened it and I eventually cut it. This summer I let my hair grow the longest it has been in years, about 3 inches below my shoulders. But I bailed and cut it back to shoulder length. Long hair is fun coz you can do so much with it. Love yours!
All good points!
I need to figure out how to slow hair growth! I like my hair short, and I can't get it cut every month like it needs to be to keep its shape.
I use keratin and my hair seems to grow quickly. I think the strengthening it gets from that does help a lot.
My hair grows crazy fast! I've donated it twice because it grows! I do a lot of these tips but I see some great new ones.
Preach! The only way I was able to speed up the growth somewhat is when I took max dose of Biotin daily, and even then the results didn't really show for 2-3 months. Besides, supplements are not a one-fits-all thing.
I swear getting a couple of impulse haircuts is a right of passage for every woman. These are some great tips!
Love you hair!!! I'm in the process of growing my hair back out so thanks for the tips!
I love the new website layout! Thanks for these tips — I need to start using argan oil in my hair again!
