Unfortunately, there is nothing that can.make your hair grow faster. It grows as fast as it's meant to. The average is half an inch each month, but some people's growth is more and others less.

We're in the same boat, you and I. I just reached SL curly and my ultimate goal is WL to TBL. Patience, tender love and care, and being healthy inside and out is all we can do. Hang in there, my curlie sista, we will reach our goals one day!

Have you tried the "Green House Effect" method. It's been known to actually increase, even double hair growth. Google "green house effect hair."

There is a website for it and everything. I just started it this month, I haven't checked for growth yet though, but if you want me to let you know how it goes for me, I will.

One of the main issues affect hair length is breakage. You can grow your hair out but if it's subject to poor care it will break more often, resulting in a shorter length.

The best way to care for your hair is to take good care of it, so it will grow longer! Trust me, nothing can really force it to grow faster-- but it can grow healthier and break less with proper care.

For a health issue, my doctor put me a full regimen of vitamins. After taking them for about a month and a half, I noticed that I was sprouting "baby hairs." My hair has been growing more, but not necessarily more in length. What I did was chopped off a lot a couple months ago, but with a better diet and hair care, it's thicker and it's growing longer. Also, refrain from those "monthly" trims that you always hear about. I can't understand how it's suggested to trim your hair once a month or even once every couple of months when the trim eradicates most of the hair growth. Yes, it's nice for getting rid of split ends but it's better to prevent the split ends in the first place.

Massage your scalp. Not only is it relaxing, but it stimulates blood flow to your scalp You can add an oil like coconut or olive for an extra boost of nutrients to your hair.

Cut heat styling, which you mentioned; try to protect your hair from breakage, which someone else already mentioned; drink plenty of water; eat a nutritious, balanced diet; up your protein intake; get enough sleep; keep your stress levels down; try supplements like biotin. That's all I can think of for now

What worked for me before my bc was drinking a ton of more water. Doing more treatments such as deep & protein treatments mainly protein because I had damaged hair. Best thing I've used was miconazole nitrate. It's the active ingredient in monistat but I use the generic brand from Walmart. I rub the cream in my scalp twice a day & my hair grew a lot faster. Search up "miconazole nitrate" on nc & you'll see other ladies talk about their experience. Also you can youtube it or just google it.

Oh my gosh, me too! Actually, I started trying to grow it out to butt length. Right now, it's a decent- almost waist length, and parts of it have about an inch to go until it touches my butt. Haha, touches my but. Anyway, I stopped using heat on it completely, and wash it about once every week or week and a half. I use olive-oil just about every three days and add it to most of my hair products. I'm out of olive oil at the momen now, but my hair's not making me struggle. But even though I've been attempting to grow it out for about 6-8 months now, I see only about half an inch to an inch of growth Anyone got explanations for that?

Did you have any side effects from the MN, like headaches or ringing ears? I thought that's why a lot of people dilute it rather than use it straight. I've been considering trying it straight, since squeezing water on my scalp is so messy, but I'm not up for MN migraines.

I only recall one day of bad migraines since I've ever used it. I added so much mn that of course I would but the reason I never diluted it was because it was messy & I feel like I'd have to wash my hair more often. I apply it straight but it's baby pea sized amounts in sections of my hair. I make four imaginary sections & rub a small amount around my scalp in that section. I get no ringing ears. But you just have to experiment since what may work for me may not work for you. I wish you luck if you do try this.

Thanks for the specifics! I may have to try this. It's so annoying to have half my MN treatment drip onto my neck and clothes, and I'll be starting school again soon, so my stress levels will shoot through the roof. LOL. I'll need all the help I can get.
