Dear CurlySuzy: I was wondering if you know of any curly hair products that can make your hair grow a little faster. I have type 3b hair and I got my hair just trimmed in the beginning of September and it looks as if my hair hasn't grown at all since it got trimmed..(and it's not just me that thinks that!) Some of my hair isn't even touching my shoulders and I really really want it to grow longer. When it's short my ends have way too much body in them and I feel like a triangle! And if I use a diffuser to give my roots more body to match my ends it gets too poofy and I hate it. Also, are there any products that you recommend that have protein in them? I have breakage in the back of my head and a hairdresser said I should get some products with protein.

Dear Stacie: Here are some products that might help with getting your hair to grow. Growing longer curls sometimes takes a huge amount of patience. Also here are some product suggestions that have protein in them. They are deep conditioners. They work best if you leave them on for 30 minutes with heat and then follow with a cool rinse. Please email me if you have any more questions.



Tips that I have found that help my hair grow faster and prevent breakage are the following: 1)A 30 minute daily workout boosts circulation to the scalp, thus encouraging hair growth. 2)I include 2 to 3 ounces of protein at each meal which helps to strengthen hair and reduce breakage. 3) I take 2 tablespoons of omega 3/6/9 fish oil daily - it promotes healthy and shiny hair. 4) At night, I sleep on a satin pillow case to prevent hair breakage. When I incorporated these tips into my daily routine, I saw results within the first 60 to 90 days!

I had the same problem, and the only thing that helped add length quickly was doing the Keratin Treatment. I went from a 3c to a 3b, because it loosens the curl a little but I now love my short curly hair!
