I know that there at people out there, particularly girls, who are in a situation where they want their hair to grow as fast as it can possibly grow. I've been in that situation a couple of times. The first situation was when I was getting married, my hair was too short for the hairstyle I wanted to wear that day. The second one was a couple months after I was married, I needed a trim and my hairstylist cut my hair about 5 inches shorter than what I asked her to cut it! I hated how short it was because I couldn't do anything with it. People sometimes think that short hair is easier to deal with than long hair, but I've had both for long periods of time each, and I truely believe long hair is easier to deal with on a day to day basis. If you're in a hurry, you don't really have to dry it and it doesn't look bad. However, with short hair, if I didn't blow dry it and fix it exactly how the style was cut, it looked terrible and it was too short to put up. Anyways, here are three simple ways I have found that make your hair grow at a much faster rate!
First, start taking a proven prenatal vitamin on a daily basis! This is a serious factor and works the best out of any method I've tried. It also makes your fingernails grow faster and makes them harder and stronger. It's strange, but very cool. There is actually another good thing that can happen by taking prenatal vitamins. They are known to help improve the visible appearance and feel of your skin. I took two different brands at different times. I first took the standard CVS brand, which worked fine. I also took the Nature Made Prenatal Multi-Vitamin. This is the one I would recommend. I've never had any trouble out of it and it definitely works to help my hair grow at a much faster rate than normal. It also contributes to overall health because it is a multi-vitamin. A little tip, it is known that women with a condition called ovulatory infertility who take an iron supplement (which is included in prenatal multivitamins), could reduce their risk up to 40 percent. Something to remember when taking prenatal vitamins that is very important is to make sure you take them with some type of food. If it be a meal or a snack, definitely have something on your stomach or the iron content will make you feel very nauseous. I recommend taking them right after dinner. I never got a sick feeling when I took them at that time. I do NOT recommend taking them in the mornings. I usually got that terrible sick feeling everytime I did that.
Secondly, I would recommend the Dove Intense Damage Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner. These two items can work wonders! You'll be able to tell a different in your hair within use of each (in the sense that your hair is much softer and smoother). After using those two together for a couple of weeks, you'll be able to notice a difference in the rate your hair is growing. I think that because it helps dramatically to repair dead and split ends, it makes your hair seem longer, too. There is also another type called Pantene Beautiful Lengths Shampoo and Conditioner. I think that one worked to help your hair grow faster, too. It just doesn't make your hair feel as wonderful as the Dove Intense Damage Therapy makes it feel. Here's what they look like.
The last thing that I would recommend is getting a tiny trim every two months. By tiny I mean about a quarter inch to half an inch. This gets the worst dead and split ends off of your hair and will keep the ends from fraying out. When your ends fray out it makes your hair seem shorter. Keeping those off of your hair will help it to seem longer. I've also heard that getting your hair trimmed regularly will keep it growing a slightly faster pace.
Another little tip, if you straighten your hair with a flat iron, it will make your hair look longer because it will be flattened out to its longest point. It really helps, just don't do it too much because they're known to create some split ends themselves.
I hope this helps all of you out there who need to get some longer, stronger hair at a quick rate. These have all been proven ways for me and I stand by them. In the past five months, my hair has grown 4 inches. I think that's pretty good! Good luck.
