Q: I cut my hair short back in 2008, it was long enough to touch my lower back.
I regretted the decision and I’ve been growing it out ever since but it still has only gotten as long as the top of my breasts.
How can I get my hair to grow longer more quickly?
A: The best way to stimulate hair growth is to keep getting regular haircuts so your hair is in good condition and does not split. A trim is recommended every 8 weeks – this will maintain healthy hair which is more likely to grow.
Using professional shampoo, conditioner and regular treatments is also very important as quality products help to nurture and care for hair. I would recommend the Wella Professionals System Professional range.
Also, try to only use semi colours as they are not damaging on the hair and patience you will get there.
I would also add that if you are serious about growing your hair, step away from the heat styling tools. Your hair needs to be in top form if it’s going to be halfway down your back and so limit your time on the straightening irons, or switch to lower temperature stylers that are kinder to your hair.
At the moment I’m growing my hair but it’s going slowly…I keep thinking of cutting my hair too. How long have you grown your hair?
