• How long will it take to grow my hair about four inches?

    Also, is it really true that hair grows quicker when it is trimmed every 6 – 8 weeks? My hair is pretty thin, I’ve had it shoulder length for 20 years but my hairstylist cut it back 3 months ago as he said it was completely broken. Not completely short but 3 inches. Yesterday I went for another trim (1/2 inch) and looks like it is almost back to 3 months ago! I am in my late 40s, maybe it takes longer?

      It doesnt grow quicker when you have it trimmed, but in the longrun it will get to a longer length quicker because if you don’t get it trimmed, the ends will break off (due to split ends-which are caused by heat, too much product,brushing hair when wet etc)
      Therefore if you get a trim every couple of months the ends can be trimmed off and not break, so the hair can get longer quicker.

      As you have thin hair make sure to look after it carefully, I read somewhere that you should ‘Treat your hair as antique lace’ in order to avoid breakage and splits.

      If you don’t already, wash your hair at night time a few hours before you sleep, let it air dry rather than use heat on it, and deep condition twice a week. Aussie do a really good 3 minute miracle conditioner, which really softens the hair. Also, Tresemme deep conditioner in a tub is really good for dry brittle hair.

      I don’t think age affects the growth of your hair, but make sure you have a healthy diet and lifestyle. I am only a teenager but I am also trying to grow my hair, and it is really slow for me! I have just started taking multivitamins and giving myself a scalp massage before I shower, so maybe it will help!

      Good Luck!

      apply vitamin e to fresh washed hair
      not into the scalp
      along with regular trims your hair will grow really fast
      mine, almost three in a month
      e is cheap
      tames the frizzies and deep conditions
      amount will vary from hair type to hair type
      takes about a month for the growth part to kick in and dont forget the trims, no sense in making it grow if split ends are going to cause hair to break off. never will get any longer that way.

      Everyday, twice a day, take a multivitamin that contains biotin. Biotin is a miracle grower! 1/4 an inch per week, 1 inch per month! I love it. You can get biotin over the counter.

      I also recommend getting your hair trimmed every 6 weeks just so you wont have to cut your long locks because of a split end.

      I HIGHLY recommend the shampoo and conditioner Mane and Tale. It contains good vitamins that help keep your hair healthy and grow.

      hair grows about a half inch a month so about 8 months. nothing makes hair grow quicker.

      About 8 months, but i think it slows down within age, for optimal growth for your self, you have to do what you can like up your protein intake, stimulate blood flow to your head more than what you do now.
