Most people will, at some point in their life, want to grow their hair long. That decision might be prompted by a bad haircut - or it might just be the desire to try something radically different, but once the decision has been made, it will seem like a slow process. So is there any way to grow your hair longer faster?
The fact is that the average person's hair grows at a rate of about 6" per annum. That can vary a little according to your age, your diet and your general state of health - but 6" growth a year is about average.
One of the best things that you can do if you want to grow your hair longer is to look after the hair that you already have. At a rate of 6" growth each year, if you have hair down below your shoulders, then the tips are going to be around about 7 years old - or more.
Older hair is more fragile and susceptible to damage - that's why we sometimes get frizzy hair or split ends. Sometimes it can get so bad that the only real solution is to trim the ends - and that isn't likely to help you grow your hair long fast - is it? If you can avoid having to get your ends trimmed too often, then that will definitely aid in achieving your desired hair length sooner rather than later.
One easy way to keep your hair in better shape is simply to avoid damaging it by heating it up to unnaturally high temperatures. Don't use hair dryers, curling tongs, heated brushes or straighteners on your hair and its condition will improve. Gently pat your hair dry with a towel (don't rub it vigorously) and you'll see a difference in just a couple of weeks.
Another simple way to improve your hair's health is to avoid dyes and bleaches. Accept your hair for what it is and don't try to change it. Dyes and bleaches really take a toll on your hair's health - avoiding them will really help to boost your hair's condition and allow you reach your desired length much faster.
Long shiny hair is considered attractive as it is one of the most obvious signs of good health. So it makes sense that keeping in good health will help you to get longer, shinier hair. Eat a diet which is high in protein and get plenty of rest. Your hair will look great and grow more quickly.
