Growing Hair Out Tips

It will cost you next to nothing to invest in these three easytips,to keep your hair from falling out.Try them out now and start seeing results in the first week. You can stop hair loss.

TIP 1. Start taking vitamins.

I mean adult vitamins not chewable kid vitamins. Go to a health food store or vitamin outlet and talk to people who know about natural health. You should inquire about multivitamin-multimineral for adults that can be easily absorbed into the body.

Take this vitamin daily. If you think, it is expensive look into cheaper brands at a later date. For now, you want the best way to get the proper nutrients into your body.

Hair loss starts at the cellular level, and without proper nutrients for your body, you are wasting your time because nothing will grow. As an example, you would not plant something in the ground without giving it the proper minerals and nutrients to grow and be healthy.

TIP 2. Drink water every day.

You have heard it before but it is true the body needs water. About 10 to 14 8oz glasses a day. It goes back to the same reason, cells have to be hydrated.

A basic rule of thumb for water consumption is a half ounce for every pound of bodyweight, if you do not work out. That means if you were 180 lbs, it would average out to about 11 8oz glasses of water daily.

Add to that if you work out or live in a hot temperature climate. Distilled water is best, but at least filtered water that removes any lead and chlorine.

Naturally, you should drink water during the course of the day, do not attempt to drink one or two huge amounts at once. Just always, remember nature needs water for anything to grow, just as we do.

TIP 3. End Caffeine

I know that sounds terrible. Boy I agree with you. This maybe the toughest tip of all, but it is necessary. By stopping your caffeine intake, you will definitely see a notice in the amount of hair falling out.

Caffeine is a diuretic, which causes increased urination. Therefore, you lose water you need to keep your cells hydrated. There now are some good tasting decaffeinated products on the market that should help you out.

Caffeine is a toxin. It gives you the quick jolt, but also more urination, which is bad. Stick to purified water. If you are having a real bad time kicking your caffeine, habit dry half caf half decaf for starters.

Just remember if you want to stop your hair from falling out and get results quickly, you should follow these three tips. Find out how to start getting your hair to grow back.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Trying to grow hair out- Hair growing tips?
    People are so confusing on this subject.
    Some say cut your hair every 6-8 weeks,some dont.
    In the past year I have been straightening my hair aLOT. It’s damaged and i’m trying to get my healthy hair back.So can you guys give me any tips for growing good healthy hair back? [:

    • ANSWER:
      yes, its true :D
      dont believe the people who say it doesnt lol

      getting the split ends cut off every month-every other month will make your hair grow a little faster and a little healthier
      you can even do it yourself or get one of your friends to cut it instead of spending in a salon =/ meh lame.

      it also helps hair grow in thicker, but you can fix that if you dont like thick hair..just go to the salon every..ooh id say about every 6 months..and get it thinned out with those cool scissors lol

      another good thing to do is not use a lot (or none at all) of gel, moose, sprays, and the flat iron..
      the flat iron at least for a while until your hair repairs
      gel and moose dry your hair out

      take a mulitvitamin like ‘one a day teen advantage’ because sometimes damaged hair is because you are lacking vitamins, such as vitamin E

      make sure when you wash your hair, the shampoo gets rinsed completely out, then put conditioner in and leave it in as you wash and shave and all that good stuff you do in the shower lol then make sure you completely rinse that out too

      **TOWL DRY HAIR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BEFORE YOU BLOWDRY**

      that way you spend less time with the heat (damage.) on your hair AND it will make your hair soft :)
      no joke! rubbing your hair between the towl will make it softer
      just start at the roots and rub to the tips or your hair until its semi-dry.(because of course it wont be completely dry)
      this works. i have no idea why but it does :)

      on days you are not going anywhere or just chilling at your house..dont blow dry your hair at all. that helps too :)

      I really, really hope this helps =]

  2. QUESTION:
    Do you have tips for growing hair out?
    I’ve recently decided to grow my hair out and break my 6 year streak of shoulder length hair. I know I have to keep it trimmed alot, but do you have any more tips?

    • ANSWER:
      your diet must be right, stop using heated appliances & chemicals, & of course what u do also affects hair, imean too much of tension n stress causes hairfall prob…
      make sure ur hair is healthy & has no split ends or dandruff or hairfall. dont put ur hair in tight braids or coils…
      & dont brush wet hair..hair tends to break alot when its wet..
      take care of your hair properly & better use herbal stuff, they give better results. get enough sleep so the hair can grow [7-9 hrs]…trim the hair every month [to avoid split ends]…
      always be gentle with ur hair & its best if you brush your hair & braid it [not too tight] before going to bed.When combing or brushing your hair, don’t over do it or use too vigorous action.doing some massage also helps to promote hair growth…you can also do some home remedies for the hair…
      1)to control hairfall, take some hibiscus leaves & grind it with little water. apply this on your hair & wash after 30 mts.
      2)to make your hair thicker & stronger, Chop lime into pieces and knead it with white egg. Smear to the whole to
      your head. After 2 hours, rinse your head with clean water.
      3) to make your hair healthier,Soak the green beans for one night. Filter it and then take the filtered green beans water and rub to your hair. Massage your skinhead gently. Do it regularly until your new hair is appearing, thick and healthy.
      *Boil 1 cup of celery leaves with stems, strain and add juice of 1 lemon. You can rinse your hair with this after washing your hair. It makes your hair look healthy and lustrous.
      4)to improve hairgrowth, Massage aloe vera gel over the scalp and leave it for about one hour.After this rinse the hair with warm water. It gives amazing results for hair growth.
      *Boil rosemary leaves in water and use this water while washing your hair daily to improve hair growth.
      *Apply some mildly warmed oil to your hair and gently massage into your scalp evenly with your fingertips. Leave overnight if you can, if not, leave on for at least an hour or two, then get it out by shampooing your hair. The scalp massage helps you relax and aids sound sleep as well.
      *A mixture of lettuce and spinach juice is believed to help the growth of hair if taken daily.

  3. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know any tips for growing hair out long and strong?
    I’m 21 and I’ve never had hair longer than my shoulders. This is because every time it gets that long it starts to look unhealthy and straggly because of all of the split ends. I can’t afford frequent haircuts to avoid this, so I was wondering, what are some ways I can maintain healthy hair? Are there vitamin supplements I should take to help it grow fast? Are there some good products out there that improve hair health? I really just want to have long hair for once in my life.

    whats the best anti-breakage shampoo? ANd i also need tips on growing out my hair?
    right now i use herbal essences long term relationship but im almost out and i want to change it up.
    i was thinking pantene beautiful lengths?
    & some tips and vitamins for growing hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some tips for growing your hair and getting the best hair shampoo.

      #1- I recommend that you eat a lot of healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables and nuts(especially almonds) and drinks lots of water.

      #2- Do not wash your hair with shampoo every time you take a bath/shower. Shampoo is merely just soap and dries your hair out. I recommend that you wash your hair with shampoo 3 times a week and the rest of the week, apply conditioner to hair and leave it in for about an hour then rinse it to cleanse and moisturize your hair at the same time.

      Hope that helps!!

  7. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any tips as to growing hair out?
    mine’s in pretty bad shape from being dyed so many times, and it’s naturally curly, so i hate cutting a whole inch or two off, because when i do leave it curly, it’s too short.

    i don’t want extensions.

    i’m taking prenatal vitamins, and eating healthy due to my pregnancy, and i’ve heard this will also do a number on your hair and nails.

    but does anyone else have any OTHER tips i could use to strengthen and/or grow my hair out longer, faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Try not to style it too much or use any products like hairspray or gel. Don’t blow dry it or use straighteners or curling irons because you will damage and break the hair. Don’t brush it too much either because this will also break the hair. Don’t put it in ponytails too much either, because this can also break it.

      I think taking the vitamins and eating healthy is good too, because a healthy body produces healthy hair.
      Good luck!

    guy growing hair out? tips?
    really wanna grow my hair out really long to just try it. My hair is just above my shoulders in the back. My hair is REALLY thick and is starting to get a little curly at the bottom in the back idk if thats normal…what kind of shampoo and conditioner should I use and any other tips? thanks
    p.s. Do i get it trimmed or no?

    • ANSWER:
      hello :D im also trying to grow my hair. i suggest that you get it trimmed when you have it past your shoulders. any shampoo will do. and conditioner too. But try to look for ones with vitamin e and c. I suggest drinking a cup of orange juice day. As for curly hair i suggest either straightening it. Because you can not naturally straighten curly hair. most importantly don’t use a towel to dry your hair. Place the towel of your head and gently message your head til water is seeped into towel. than use “heat protection spray and blow-dry your hair til medium dry. Than use some kind of glossing spray that contains oils(hair oils your stylish should know some good ones.) the oils help keep your hair looking shiny and soft. blow-dry on even days and let it air dry on odd days.

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, if you’re growing your hair out, get your hair trimmed every three months. As weird as this sounds, you can get really shiny hair by mixing egg whites together and lathering the mixture into your hair. Leave on for 10-20 minutes then wash with your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Do this at least 2 times a week for best results.

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Do you know what’s in the biotin?   Biotin – cauliflower, liver, salmon, carrots, bananas, cereals, yeast, and soy flour. Keep in mind that biotin content is reduced when food is cooked or preserved.

      Biotin alone is not going to do that for your hair, that’s like have a car and just use gas. You need all the healthy foods from Mother Nature, not just biotin.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010 issue has a section on biotin, etc. .The FDA don’t even approve of them. Because of inadequate quality control and inspection, supplements contaminated with heavy metals, pesticides, or prescription drugs have been sold to unsuspecting consumers. And FDA rules covering manufacturing quality don’t apply to the companies that supply herbs, vitamins, and other raw ingredients.
      Beginning in February 2008, they experienced one symptom after another: diarrhea, joint pain, hair loss, lung problems, and fingernails and toenails that fell off.

      According Dr. Melissa Piliang, a dermatologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Americans spent an estimated 6 million on hair loss products last year, and chances are some of that money was not well spent. Don’t let charming salon owners, seductive ads or fancy gimmicks convince you otherwise.

      CNN, Slate, Consumer Reports, MSN, YAHOO have posted them online for years how people spend billion per year on vitamins and supplements.  According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.  It is false advertisements.

      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – the website had moved, type it in. Two others also:

      http://www.menshealth.com/spotlight/hair…

      Growing hair doesn’t come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more.

      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s. When I was in HS, my hair grew from bob to waist length in 3 1/2 years (not bra strap as stated earlier).

    ive bleached and dyed my hair too many times to count… soo im starting over and taking better care of my hair ( etc, not blowdrying ) taking vitamins.

    any tips will be helpful, thanks very much

    • ANSWER:
      My hair was down to my mid-back and half of it was dead from highlighting it. When I got it cut to a bit past my shoulder, I was determined to grow it back out but healthy. Here’s some tips.

      ON KEEPING IT HEALTHY:
      1. Eat a lot of protein. Granola has a lot, I eat 1/4 cup a day. You could just take a supplement though.
      2. Don’t brush more than you need to.
      3. Always use a thermal protector when heat styling your hair.
      4. Keep temperature in mind. Hair follicles are like skin pores: heat stimulates them, cool air relaxes them. For example, once a week, microwave your normal conditioner for 6 seconds. Smooth onto damp hair, keep in for 5 minutes and rinse in cool/cold water.

      ON MAKING IT GROW FASTER:
      1. Massage your scalp daily for 5 minutes. This increases blood flow to the head and makes it grow faster.
      2. Avoid touching your hair. Also avoid processing it, aka colouring, dying, highlighting, bleaching, etc.
      3. Get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks. No more than half an inch.
      4. Apply conditioner to the ENDS ONLY (it weighs down your hair)
      5. Don’t wash everyday. The natural oils help hair growth.

      I hope this helps! By doing this, my hair grew four inches in four months!

      How Can I Make My Hair Grow Faster?

      The subject I want to discuss today is a question that is often asked and seems to concern many women. It usually comes in two forms; “My hair doesn’t get any longer.” and “How can I make my hair grow faster?”

      I’m sorry to say that, despite numerous advertising campaigns, there are no magic ointments or quick fix treatments that will make your hair grow faster. The average growth rate is one half inch per month. Sometimes hair does not seem to get longer because the ends are breaking off, making it appear not only, not to grow but even to get shorter. There isn’t anything you can do to increase that, however you can take certain measures to keep your hair as strong as possible.

      Let me explain.
      The longer your hair is, the ‘older’ the ends of it are. Everyday, wear and tear, such as sun, wind, blow drying, curling irons and other heat styling tools, even shampooing and brushing, all work together to gradually erode each hair. This eventually causes split ends that will, in turn, result in the hair breaking off.

      The first step is prevention. Care for your hair as you would any valuable possession. Use a mild shampoo that is recommended for your hair type, such as: oily hair, dry hair, color treated, etc. If you are unsure, seek the advice of a hairdresser. I suggest using a conditioner after every shampoo; again, one that is formulated for your hair type. The conditioner will soften the hair and reduce the amount of wear causing friction between hair strands. Reduce the amount of heat styling you do. Whenever possible, let your hair dry naturally.

      Finally, get regular trims. If you are striving for longer hair, see your hairdresser at least every ten to twelve weeks to have one quarter to one half inch trimmed. This will get rid of any budding split ends while, at the same time, allowing for growth.

      While making sure these things are taken care of, remember that the hair papilla, where the hair begins, is nourished by blood vessels, so concentrate on a healthy lifestyle. Make sure you are getting the essential nutrients required by your body and promote good circulation with regular exercise and scalp massage.

    Does anybody have any hair growing tips?
    I’m trying to grow my hair out, but it just seems like it’s taking FOREVER. Does anyone have some tips that I can do, or products to use, that will help my hair grow longer faster?

    • ANSWER:
      I saw somewhere where a girl put in extensions and stopped worrying about her natural hair. It was about a year later and she removed the extensions and her hair was about 20 inches long. Perhaps you could look into something like that. That way you wouldn’t have to worry about using harsh products or anything.

      I use a deep conditioning coconut conditioner that works wonders.

  23. QUESTION:
    Has my hair stopped growing – Any tips and advice?
    Seriously, has my hair stopped growing!
    Its only about collar bone length and has been like that since about April. Its August now!

    Ive been trying to grow my hair out for soooo long, and Im seriously getting very frustraited.
    It wont grow, and all Ive ever wanted since about 2009 is long hair.

    Please TIPS that have worked for YOU in growing hair would be helpful

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I used to have the same problem, but after these tips my hair grew tremendously! First off, be sure to get a shampoo and conditioner that enhances hair growth (such as Main n’ Tail shampoo and conditioner). Also, before you wash your hair soak it in extra-virgin olive oil for 30 minutes-60 minutes and then wash the olive oil out with your shampoo and conditioner. The olive oil will keep your hair healthy, thus helping it grow. Biotin is a great vitamin that you can purchase at any drugstore and it will enhance hair growth and nail growth (plus it’s only about and lasts a LONG time). Also, do NOT trim off dead ends every month, people always say to do that, but if you keep doing that your hair will never grow; it will always be the same length! So instead get your dead ends trimmed off every 6 months. At any time during the day massage your scalp to increase blood flow which will increase hair growth (it’s also a good idea to massage your head while shampooing your hair). Besides that, just make sure to not put any unnecessary heat on your head (straighteners, hair blow dryers, curling irons). Eat healthy (lots of protein, vegetables, fruit), drink plenty of water, and exercise lots! Hope I helped & best of luck. :)

    Im an african american teen….wit wavy and curly hair…..very manageable. I wash my hair every 2 weeks. It goes a inch and a half on my shoulders. i flat iron it often but with protectant products. It used to go to my hips, before my salon drastically cut it. Does anyone have any hair growing tips or products?
    after about 4 months, my hair grew 2inches. i have been using a B&B growing grease product. i haven’t had a touch up or perm since May 28, 2009. i wear it natural often and flat iron it every now and then.

    • ANSWER:
      Well for one try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the
      time and it makes your hair grow faster. I;d say massage it into
      your scalp b/c thats going to help the roots if you just put it on
      the ends, it not going to do anything to it. You can find it at
      walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water
      to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should
      use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it.
      Even hot water hurts your hair.

    Growing hair Tips? and Reducing hair loss?
    Well i cut my hair a couple of months back, and its still not growing,

    Ive tried Regular trimming and stuff but it still won’t grow.

    Also ive been losing a lot of hair, it just keeps falling out wen i have a bath and brush my hair.

    My hairs normally straight and i use herbal essenses seductivly stright. shampoo and conditionor.

    Any tips on both?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve been growing my hair out for a while and its finally at the smallest part of my waist! the key to growing your hair out is having healthy hair! your doing good with trimming it regularly! keep that up. make sure that when you get out of the shower/bath that you use a wide tooth comb only! dont use a regular hair brush, because it will damage and break your hair. if you use heat daily on your hair by using straighteners,curling irons and blow dryers….then that will severely damage your hair! if you have to use heating products, make sure that you protect your hair with a heat protector spray! this will help guard your hair from the heat which will help keep it healthy and maintained! tresemme has a very good heat spray for a very affordable price!

      taking vitamins also help your hair tremendously! Biotin vitamins help support healthy hair and nails! I use this and it really helps my hair. you can buy it at any vitamin shop:) you can also take Prenatal vitamins! (the ones without the hormones in them) prenatal vitamins help grow your hair SO fast! my hair has grown almost 3 inches in a month and a half! it helps soooo much:)

      good luck with everything!!:)

    thats pretty much it. im trying to grow my hair longer (its around my shoulders now, but im thinking i want it longer) so any tips on how to grow it longer and keep it healthy? thanks in advance :)
    no, im not blonde, but i get how that sounded a little retarded. i meant tips to make it grow faster. ive heard some things but im not sure if they are true. thanks for the help guys!

    • ANSWER:
      Lots of things can contribute to how fast your hair grows. If you straighten or blow dry, try and do it as little as possibly and blow dry on cool. Heat can damage hair and cause breakage. You can get a spray that protects hair against the heat as well. I sometimes sleep with conditioner in my hair to keep it moisturized, but I have never tried any of the shampoos that say they promote hair growth. I think theres a herbal essences one called long term relationship? And also the things you eat can help your hair. Protein and Iron can help, but an overall healthy diet won’t hurt either. Vitamins can help you get the nutrients your missing. Hope any of this helps :)

  44. QUESTION:
    What are some tips on growing out my hair?
    I am looking to grow my hair out some but not really long. The last haircut I got was a complete buzz cut down to my scalp where I was almost bald. I guess you could call it a military style haircut, and I got that at the beginning of July. Now my hair is about an inch long and I am looking to grow it out some. Do I need to get any haircuts or should I just let it grow. Please let me know what I should do? or any tips! Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Your July haircut is known as a butch. When the hair is cut shorter than 1/4″ on top, a butch that short is also known as a burr. A butch fully suits relatively few guys. In contrast, a good barber can design one of the short pomp(pompadour) styles-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut), flat top crew cut- to fully suit almost any young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. If your hair is now about an inch long then it is growing at the average rate of 1/8″ per week or maybe a little faster depending on how short your hair was actually cut and how early in the month of July. One inch is long enough at the front hairline for a medium crew cut. Getting a crew cut now and then going for a slightly longer short haircut every three weeks or so will allow you to see how well you suit a variety of short styles and will not really lengthen the time it takes for your hair to grow to a guy’s regular taper cut style with about three inches on top which is what I assume you mean by “but not really long.” Here is how I grow out a short crew cut or flat top crew cut:
      crew cut:

      short ivy league:

      ivy league(long crew cut):

      http://h.imagehost.org/0168/Kid_with_a_Coke_Zero_Large.jpg

      Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.
      regular taper cut:

      regular layer cut:

      http://j.imagehost.org/0150/regularlayercuttcchristophersylvest003.jpg

      It can also be interesting to see how well a flat top crew cut suits while your hair is crew cut length:

      Essential barbering knowledge:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Crew_cut#Clippers.2C_Blades_and_Guards

      Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
      1) Towel dry hair.
      2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
      3)Transfer wax to palms.
      4) Smooth palms over hair.
      5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
      Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need more photos of any of the styles discussed above let me know.
      Good Luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    I’m growing my hair out…any tips?
    I know there are no ways of making your hair grow faster…I just want tips on growing it out to my waist. Any tips to avoid breakage or damage? Or anything else?

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing you can do for it is to keep it trimmed to keep split ends from forming. When a hair splits, nothing will stop it except to cut it; if you don’t, then pretty soon the hair doesn’t look good any more. Beyond that – a good conditioner, especially at the ends is important; also, be gentle with it after you’ve washed it, to avoid stretching and breaking the hairs.

      Good luck!

Growing Hair Out Time Lapse

Say you or a loved one may be observing considerable hair thinning creating a receding hairline or bald patches on different parts of your head then you might have perhaps been searching for causes and answers. There are several treatments currently available that you can buy. Many of these remedies need a prescription.

It is definitely beneficial to go to your doctor at the initial warning of any kind of unusual condition affecting your body. It is nearly as essential at the time you detect unexpected hair loss or are worried about an increase in a receding hairline.

Medications, illness or even childbirth can be causes of some baldness. Some hair loss could be caused by sudden or temporary pressure you could possibly be experiencing. You could have not too long ago been ill for a long period of time which could affect the immune system. Once the sickness or stress has subsided you might watch your hair come back without having the help of preparations.

A receding hairline or baldness is sometimes a hereditary affliction, a predisposed gene you’re born with. If it is so, getting hair development to start is harder but still plausible. Whatever the case or cause could be you might have perhaps been seeking anxiously for a product to help cure this condition.

This may appear absurd, but something as simple as just brushing your hair appropriately with the correct kind of brush might cause the hair to grow back. After carrying out research on people’s hygiene routines it was discovered that people with lots or hair tended to brush their hair more reguarily and more vigorously. This will generally promote the pores within the head which assists in producing the oils that promote just the right situation for hair growth.

Brushing your hair may assist with quite current hair loss or receding hairline. But, if a lot of time lapses the pores dry up and close. In these circumstances the brushing method is probably not as useful.

Seeing that each person’s head and body types are different an individual may need to test various products, medicinal drugs or strategies to get their hair back. The quicker you gets started the greater and much more successful the remedies will be.

A quick search on the internet should expose lots of these remedies and medicinal drugs. You can read regarding a person’s intimate hair loss or receding hairline occurrence and subsequent success story. Possibly you will find the cases could possibly match yours and be exciting news to you.


Growing Hair Out Natural

Are you looking for the Best Hair Loss Remedy to regrow lost hair naturally? Certainly hair loss has become biggest problem in today’s scenario which is important to curb. There are several ways by which hair fall can be controlled and combat such as clinically and naturally. Both the methods are available with people as clinically method will cost high in terms of laser surgery or medicines while natural method consist of application of herbal medicines or other treatments.

Medicinal method is most common way adopted by people as it doesn’t require invasion to regrow hair on the scalp while the chemical usually reacts with the hormones and stops hair loss. There are times when people eventually go for herbal method to stop hair fall because herbal method is purely safe and non-invasive but it doesn’t have aftermaths which clinical or medicinal method have. If chemical reacts in improper way or doesn’t suits the skin then it can have multiple side effects in men.

People looking for hair solution can easily find Best Hair Loss Remedy but it is important to consult tricologist who may refer you medicine as per the skin type and compatibility. To combat complete baldness people can go for medicines containing finasteride which is a drug that help alleviating baldness. However, the drawback of medicine containing this drug is that they are expensive and they must not be consumed by children or women which can have negative aftermaths.

Today many people are going for laser surgery for hair to cure baldness but it should be noted that these methods are not completely safe or successful as far as surveys are concerned. Only handfuls of people have incurred benefits with hair surgery and if surgery is a success then people do not need to take pills or medicines on regular basis to grow or stop falling hair. On the other hand natural methods are safe and have potent effect without side effects. People seeking methods for long term can opt for simple and safe treatment with natural ingredients such as oil, using apple cider vinegar on scalp, lots of water, vitamin A& E, green vegetables, almonds, and application of curd and eggs.

Don’t haste in using any medicine or product on hair to prevent hair loss as it is gradual process so whenever you come across with this problem just try to find out the reasons that has lead to severe problem. Find out how you get effective results for long period and if the product or medicine give short term benefit then need not to buy that.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Do i have to cut off my permed hair while growing out natural hair?
    okay i plan on growing my hair out natural last month i got my hair perm.And i hear you have to cut off your permed hair to began to grow out your hair natural.I felt threw my head and i feel a lot of new growth in my hair.and i want to know what is the process of growing my hair the bsl(bra strap length)

    • ANSWER:
      You don’t have to cut it right away, but eventually you’ll want to if you’re serious about going natural. The dual texture will take some getting used to and you’ll start to love your new curls so much you’ll want to free them from that dead, permed hair!

      The phase where you’re just growing out your roots is called “transitioning.” I transitioned for about a year before I did my BC(the Big Chop). I just kept my hair in kinky twists or braids while my hair grew and my roots got more and more difficult to manage. Your hair will grow very fast after your chop if you take care of it. For some “expert” advice, I suggest going to the Long Hair Care Forum. Those ladies will help you get a hair regimen going that’s right for you.

  2. QUESTION:
    growing out hair dye and growing in natural hair color?
    ok so i dyed my hair and its kinda a disaster so i want to grow it out and let my natural color grow in. all people have said is i could dye it with semi permanent hair dye as i let it grow out but i really don’t want to do that because i don’t want to dye my hair at ALL anymore due to the past experience.. any suggestions? i want the fastest easiest and most unnoticeable way as possible.

  3. QUESTION:
    How can i keep nice looking hair while growing out my natural hair?
    I have relaxed hair that is short and style like rihanna’s but lately i’ve been contemplating going natural because i want my long hair back. I tried to go natural a few years ago but the transitioning period what so unbearable, but now i’ve been doing my homework and i want to get my last relaxer in december, but what can i do with my hair while i’m growing out my hair in that “awkward” phase lol?

    • ANSWER:
      i’m doing the same thing and i’ve been getting braids (micros) in the meantime. when you take the braids out after 2 months or so, cut about an inch of relaxed hair off, Deep Condition!!, then get braids again. it’s a long process but totally worth it.

  4. QUESTION:
    My Highlights are growing out and i want natural hair so I don’t have to dye it anymore?
    I have some natural highlights and i added some with the box that you use at home. Now my highlights are growing out and my hair does not have as many natural highlights. I now have a line basically about an inch from my head of where they stop and then my hair is darker (between my scalp and highlights only about an inch of darker hair-roots) I want my hair to be natural so that i don’t have to keep dying it (im afraid if i dye it it will not turn out the color of my actual hairand i would have teh same problem when my hair grows again) but i would like for it to blend in. Can anyone help?

    • ANSWER:
      use a color glaze that’s opposite the color of ur highlights.. if ur highlights are blonde-ish then use a brown glaze… if its brown or any other dark color then use a blonde one…
      if u’re afraid the glaze will make your whole head darker or lighter.. then use a mascara wand to apply the glaze in areas where the highlights are placed… use the glaze in about 5 times and it should darken or lighten your current highlights…

I’d probably start crying. would it be okay if I just let my hair grow out and not perm it? it breaks off anyways, so the perm will be gone eventually. do you think that would look tacky, though? I’d press my hair until a lot grows out. what should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry to say, but the easiest way to grow your hair out natural is to cut it off. When I initially cut mine off, people thought I was crazy since my hair was past my shoulder. BUT, guess what, it’s no big deal – hair grows back. My natural hair is healthier and now way past my shoulder, just about bra strap length when stretched. Since it was a shock to have short hair, I wore my hair in microbraids or opted for having my hair braided so I could easily wear a wig. Anyway, the problem with having two textures of hair – permed and natural is that it will cause breakage and damage so it’s much easier and healthier to just cut it off. There’s a book I love called Let’s Talk Hair – look for it on an auction site – it should be very cheap and it talks a lot about the transition from permed to natural. Also, there is a natural website called nappturality.com for inspiration and a WEALTH of information.

  10. QUESTION:
    growing natural hair out without two tone nightmare?
    So this time last year I was a blondie. I had bleached it that August from an auburn red, and kept the blonde until November when I wanted it red again. My hair is naturally a dark strawberry blonde/caramelly color.We had extreme difficulties getting my hair to take color as it was so damaged it just bled right off of the strands as soon as we rinsed. After numerous moisture treatments and a good base that clung on, we got an auburn color to take. The goal was to have a color that would fade out to close to my natural, which it has for the most part, but is still a little more coppery. I want my natural to grow out as I have learned my lesson and want my healthy hair back, but am wondering what my options are to make the two tone process less noticeable. Toners? Demis? My hair is just past my arm pit and I have a good 4 inches of root going. Some advice would be great!

    http://s12.photobucket.com/albums/a244/cherubrock03/?action=view&current=new056.jpg

    • ANSWER:
      go for a glaze treatment! it fades on tone and really helps blend a “grow out” Redken uses a demi line that’s great for that and adds a ton of shine! if you go to the website it has a salon locator to help u find the right place! but always be honest about the history of your color, it makes a difference for the finished do!

  11. QUESTION:
    Growing natural hair color out?
    How long does it take? Will I be close to having all my natural hair color back in 8 months?

    • ANSWER:
      Well always depends on how long your hair is.

      When I started doing that years ago after having about 1.5 inches of natural hair grown out I just went to a hair salon so they could match my hair colour and dyed the whole thing. That way as it grows out you won’t look funny.

      It will probably take longer than 8 months though.

  12. QUESTION:
    My hair is really unhealthy & bleached. I want to grow out my natural color very long. How long would it take?
    I asked a stylist in February to die my hair but apparently she bleached it.

    My hair seems to be growing really slowly. I want to grow out my natural hair color all the way to mid- chest.

    Accounting for hair trims, how long would it take me to grow my hair from the roots all the way to mid- chest? Years? Decades? Impossible?

    Any tips for me?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair does not necessary hast to be bleached to reach an specific hair color, even if you wish to have lighter hair color it can be easily done by other means, see it at http://www.nychaircolorists.com for more information. Also always remember that hair can be damaged and you will need to have your hair color repaired which usually takes a long time to reinstate it to its original state, see information about damage hair color repair at http://tophaircolorists.com/haircolordamagedhair.html.
      Hair color is not easy, it is an specialty that no every hairdresser can do.
      About the hair grow, it can take from several months to a few years and it is based in how fast your hair grows and how long you wish to have it.

  13. QUESTION:
    Growing out natural hair color, but roots no not match the rest of my processed hair…?
    I use to dye my hair red, now i’ve decided to grow out my natural brown hair color. So i dyed my hair brown, and my roots are now 2 inches long (natural color) but the rest of my dyed hair is looking bland, since every time i shower the color washes off significantly. I can now see traces of the red and it is not as dark as it once once, you my roots do not blend. Its really irritating, because i like looking well kept and i feel really unkept. I dont want to redye it because it would defeat the purpose of growing my hair out, but is there anything i can do to the dyed hair to make it look darker, and glossier and match my roots without necessarily cutting it off, im also trying to grow my hair out longer. Please advice. Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      you can buy hair glazes that match your hair , they have a bit of semi permanent dye in them to even things out and will add shine to the dull ends.

      You could also use a semi permanent dye like natural instincts.
      it’ll cover it up while its growing out , but wash out.
      Plus its not damaging to your new roots.

  16. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my natural hair out?
    I have been dying my hair for the past two years, and I am sick of it. I just dyed it light brown yesterday, but it turns out dark brown, like my natural hair color. What can I do to grow my hair out, without the roots being very noticeable? I’ve heard about semi-permanent hair dye, but where can you get it? Also, does it damage your hair, and how often do you need to apply it? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      hey [=
      you can buy semi-permanent hair color at a drug store such as wallgreens or riteaid. garnier fruitis is a very good brand to use. it conditions your hair as it colors. you can retouch your roots as your roots grow out instead of coloring your entire head of hairrr. orrrr, you can go to a local salon and talk to a hair stylist about toning your hair current hair color down a notchh.

      trimming your hair actually allows it to grow faster.

  17. QUESTION:
    Growing out natural hair, half brassy orange, half dirty blonde…?
    Ok, it’s a long story and I have alot of old chemicals in my hair. It began with some home highlights two years ago, then I decided to brightne my natural ash blonde hair at home. it came out wonderful. Then i got bored, went back to a dyed dark ash temporarily to prime my hair for red. I dyed it red by loreal. Again, gorgeous! This was over a year ago. However, I got bored -again, and wanted to go back to blonde. Uh-oh. I stripped out the color with color oops, ( which worked in the past ) and it did strip out the red, and left me kind of orange. I realize that is normal, and I used purple shampoos for awhile, which helped slightly…Dyed again blonde….stayed orange. Recently dyed ash twice ( on strand tests) and the dye would not take AT ALL to cover the reddish orange. I am trying to grow my hair very long. The last time I dyed was in the summer. I have about three inches of natural healthy strong hair and I am stoked about going natural, but the rest looks hideous. I chopped four inches off already and cannot go shorter. It”s a couple inches past my shoulders now. Still orange, brittle, overprocessed, damaged and ugly color.

    My question is this:
    Why won’t ash colors take on my hair to cancel the orange? I used semi permanents.

    I REALLY want to grow out my own color, because at least it is healthy, but this two toned look looks trailer trashy, and I would like to find something GENTLE to blend the colors as I grow it out. I know it won’t be perfect, but there has to be something that will help it look better at least. My hair is soooo damaged I cannot dye it anymore with harsh stuff.

    Will purple shampoos help?

    Will Un-Red ( Sally’s ) help?

    I can’t go to a salon, I do not trust them, they ALWAYS chop my hair off.

    • ANSWER:
      The reason your hair won’t hold the color is because you have bleached it so many times that it is porous. To get it to hold some color, you need to go to Sally Beauty and buy protein filler. Get demi-permanent hair color while you are there. This is the least damaging (semi-permanent does contain ammonia). Apply the protein filler and then the demipermanent color. At first it will fade, but you have enough to treat your hair several times. You will probably have to apply the protein filler repeatedly for the color to stop fading, but eventually it will.

    I wanna grow out my natural hair color?
    My hair grows pretty fast..but can I grow out my natural color completely by October? is it possible?
    I dont mean growing out my hair length, my natural hair COLOR.

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how fast your hair grows, how recently you had it last dyed, and how long your roots are. If you need it grown out by October, but it doesn’t seem likely, dye your hair as close to your natural color as you can get. That way, as it grows in, you wont notice much of a difference.

    growing out natural hair.?
    I have had chemically manipulated hair since i was a young child and now i started the journey of growing it out and just leaving it natural. my natural hair soft and curly its not coarse or rough. as a teenager i had hair that was very long and i wore it straight most of the time, now my current hair length is just under my chin. how long do you think it will take my curly hair to grow to this length and what can i do with my hair right now while its in this in-between stage in terms of styling and care?

    • ANSWER:
      honestly, it will probably take about a year naturally.
      in terms of styling and care, lay off straightening it so you dont get spilt ends and give yourself head massages to make your hair grow a tiny big faster. i would moose it or put gel in it. or do little pony tails. or half up.

  25. QUESTION:
    How do I grow my natural hair out from a perm?
    Had the begining of last october I had my hair permed, and it was REALLY curly everywhere..it still didn’t come out, but it is straight at the top now and sorta wavish at the bottom. I have naturally straight hair, and I don’t want to straighten in everyday like I do now..I could cut my hair where it’s wavy at, it wouldn’t be that short, but it took me a long time to grow my hair where it is now..any way I van get it out without cutting it?

    • ANSWER:
      Hunny when you permed your hair you rearrange the bonds in your hair to make them curly so the only way to get rid of those curls are to cut them if you try to stighten it with any chemeical. Like said above you take the risks most likely break your hair off and if it doesent break off it will be super damaged take biotin it will. Help hair growth. Good luck

    I’m African-American and I have my natural hair out and it is currently relaxed. I’m wondering what products I can use to help my natural hair grow and be strong?

    • ANSWER:
      well, let me be the first to tell you that your hair is not natural if it is chemically treated. if you relax your hair on a two-month basis, your hair is chemically treated. natural hair has no chemical alterations or processes done to it or for it.

      secondly, if you decide to keep your hair natural, here are some great products: Aphogee, Profectiv, Organic Root Stimulator, Dr. Miracles (use only one line. mixing and matching does not work)
      if you decide to keep your hair relaxed, here are some great products: Aphogee, Luster Renutrients, Profective, Motions, Parnevu

  27. QUESTION:
    Growing out dyed hair to have natural/un-dyed color back?
    Is anyone doing this right now? How long did it take for you to start seeing your natural hair color grow in?

    • ANSWER:
      I am doing this right now. My natural color is a dark blonde, and I dyed my hair black. It took like 3 weeks to start seeing roots. Now it has been about 7 or 8 months and my natural is down to about an inch past my chin. I actually just recently chopped off my hair, and it took most of the remaining black off! It was pretty sweet.
      My hair looked like crap with the huge difference of the black dye and my blonde hair. I have been using a semi permament color in my hair to “camouflage” my major roots. (I have been using this awesome burgundy, it looked cool with the black tips..) So eventually the semi color will fade, and my blonde will be back! Just be patient! It takes alot of time..

  30. QUESTION:
    Growing my hair back out natural. Anything I can do to speed up the process?
    I used to dye my hair every two months. It was always a different color. I’ve had red hair, black, various shades of brown, strawberry, blonde, even pink. I’ve been dating my boyfriend for ten months, and he’s finally convinced me that I’m beautiful without all of the dye, straightening, and makeup. I still wear makeup and do my hair – I just don’t feel as if I absolutely need it anymore. I don’t feel hideous without it, and therefore don’t do it as often.

    I’m trying to grow all of my dye out, and let my hair grow long and natural. Is there anything I can do to speed up the process? Are there any vitamins I could take? Foods I could eat? I want my natural long hair, not extensions.

    • ANSWER:
      I was having the same problem as well, but take Biotin, I take 2 tablets everyday as it says, and my hair has grown so much since my last trim. Also, get your hair trimmed every 2-4 months, some people don’t believe that trims work, so it’s just how your hair takes to it. I hadn’t cut my hair in a year, and once I got it cut this year, my hair was really growing. If you have split ends, I would really suggest you cut your hair, because split ends travel up the hair causing more damage and more of a chance for your hair to break off. Also, consume more protein, because that is what your hair is made of and helps it grow. I started using Macadamia Oil, it is sold at Trade Secrets here in Canada, but I’m not sure where you are. I highly recommend that, they have natural oil and sulphate free shampoos and conditioners as well as healing oil treatments, I use all of them they are the best product ever, my hair is stronger, longer and healthier, and has more body to it than it used to, however, the products are a little on the expensive side, but so worth it. There is also Moroccan Oil, which is good as well. Also, when you’re washing your hair, wash your hair with cool water at the end of your shower, it helps a lot. Also, take daily vitamins. My hair is so much healthier than it used to be once I did all of that! I wouldn’t suggest hair supplements, because they don’t work for everyone, some of my friends used some and their hair ended up falling out, so it’s better to go with a vitamin or mineral.

  31. QUESTION:
    I am growing my hair out natural, any suggestions on hair care products?

    • ANSWER:
      Im growing mine out too! What you can do is everynight put it into a braid. I did that when I was younger and it grew a good 7-8 inches just in a year. I used little to no heat and washed it every other day. Tea tree oil helps it repairs split ends. Another thing is messaging your scalp 30 secs everyday. Flip your hair upside down and start messaging the scalp. Deep condition or use hot oil treatments but dont use as much product besise those things. A great shampoo/ conditioner is Mane and tail i also used their detangling spray it works great! I hope these things work for youu :)

  32. QUESTION:
    I’m biracial and growing out my natural hair?
    Hey, so I’m half black and half white and I’ve decided to grow out my natural hair which consists of really small tight curls.The only problem is that it’s really hard to keep untangled. Could you guys give me any tips on how to make it more manageable? Also if there are any tips on how to make it grow faster I would really appreciate it!

    • ANSWER:
      One thing I would suggest is to try washing your hair with conditioner. We call it “no poo”. You simply use conditioner as you would normally use shampoo. This will keep your hair from getting so tangled and unmanageable. If you cannot bear to completely part from shampoo right now, try mixing it with conditioner.

      Another tip to remove tangles: Saturate your hair with milk (yes cow milk, coconut milk, soy milk – any milk you use). Let it sit on your hair for at least 10 minutes and then rinse and condition.

      Hope this works.

  33. QUESTION:
    What are tips for maintaining Healthy Growing Natural Black Hair?
    I’m excited about wearing my hair natural again. What discouraged me from the beginning was hurtful opinions from other kids in Middle school. They criticized me so bad it drove me into getting a perm. When i had the perm I felt confident (in the beginning), I had no worries about my ‘Nappy Roots’. But some time later..like a yr or so, i started noticing breakage, poor flexibility..exc. The maintenance was good at first but it was getting expensive. I was struggling to keep the perm under control.11 yrs later, WOW, i’ve noticed that I’ve been “VAIN”. Not excepting me for who I really appear to be. Since the perm, the majority of the time, i’ve worn Weave, wigs, tracks…I feel fake & others has stated “why do you wear that anyway?” I’m speechless at that point but I know what point they’re trying to make. My boyfriend doesn’t understand why i wear wigs, tracks exc.. He loves my ‘Nappy Roots’ :) My guy friends also respect that I’m going natural. November will be a yr since i’ve been letting my hair grow natural. I’m wearing wigs now so my natural hair can grow out. How can I maintain my course hair when it fully grows out?

    • ANSWER:
      i use vitamin e on fresh washed hair, dont message into the scalp. hair will feel slightly sticky until dry then it will be nice and soft. it tames the frizzies and deep conditions and make hair grow fast. mine, about three in a month. e is cheap and a big bottle will last a long time. dont forget the regular trims, about every 7-9 weeks, that is a must to keep hair from breaking off. what good is it to get it to grow if it snaps off at the bottom. i just started using Biotin Vitamin, i take it orally, but havent taken it long enough yet to see some benefits. its cheap too. and i purchased biotin shampoo. i got both of these from an online vitamin store. much cheaper that way. takes about a month for the e to kick in.

    BEST ANSWER 10 POINTS INCLUDE LOADS PPL!! XXX

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      Cut about an inch off your hair, and use an intense protein treatment once a week. You can also use an ammonia free semi permanent colour which wont really damage your hair, if anything, it wll put life back into it (but make sure if you decide to do this, colour it first and then have it cut, as the hairdresser will usually take an inch or 2 off anyway, and you should always have a chemical trim after every permanent colour application)

      The most important thing to remember is treatments. You can buy a intense protein treatment and this works by reconstructing the hair on the inside, and then the outside. You can also use in conjuction with this a moisture treatment will replace the moisture lost from sun damages and colouring and so forth. The moisture will also make the hair feel alot more softer and manageable as the protein treatment won’t.

      Hope you work it out lovey!

  36. QUESTION:
    Growing out my NATURAL hair?
    I have EXTREMELY thick african-american hair. I haven’t gotten it relaxed since last August (so in a month it’ll be a whole year). I stopped relaxing it because even though my hair is thick, its very soft and a couple months after a relaxer it starts to shed and become very thin. I’m trying to go natural. At first all of my relaxed hair started to fall out towards where my hair was very short. I kept it braided or got sew-ins. I still wear it like that now but all my relaxed hair has fallen out and now I’m just growing it out all natural :) but it VERY hard. My hair is sooo thick I can’t even straighten it. I tried hot-combing but its still hard. What do you suggest? I just want my hair to grow as long as possible and healthy. Ik to get my ends trimmed every few weeks and to moisturize my hair & scalp and I wrap it up at night. Anything else I can do? I try to avoid putting heat on it because it doesn’t help at all. I heard scalp massages help too. So to end this rant, I love my thick hair, but when going natural, how can I assist in hair growth? Any help would be appreciated (:

    • ANSWER:
      Hi. First of all, you are probably still dealing with the difference between your natural hair and your relaxed hair. They are much different in texture, and the difference takes getting used to. You didn’t say what types of hair products you are using on your hair. You might want to experiment and look for products that moisturize and soften your hair. Some hair products might feel good when you first use them, but after a few hours you realize that they have made your hair hard, dry, brittle, and unmanageable. Avoid shampoos that contain sulfates, and products that are made with mineral oil and petrolatum. Many many products for black hair contain these ingredients, and they actually make the hair dry and hard. Look for sulfate-free shampoos, and use oils, pomades and conditioners made with natural oils and emollients. For more tips on caring for your natural hair visit http://natural-black-hair-care.info

  37. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my hair out natural without cutting it. Black hair!?
    I’m almost 18 and my mom has been giving me perms since I was 3 years old. =(!!! I HATE PERMED HAIR WITH A PASSION!!!! It make me sick looking at my own hair. I want my hair natural, but I would have to cut it all off. =;( What should I do??

    • ANSWER:
      My hair used to be relaxed too until i decided to go natural almost 2 years ago. I didn’t want to cut all my hair off (i was 14 and in high school so it wasn’t an option) so I decided that I would keep flat ironing it and let it grow out. It doesn’t matter if you flat iron the relaxed hair (you are going to cut it off anyway so its just “play hair”). I put it in protective styles (like ponytails) and grew all the relaxer out in a little over a year. Now i wear it in an afro every now and then and i really like it.

      When you go natural, it is important to completely change how you take care of your hair. Go to this website and go to the natural section. It will help a lot.

  38. QUESTION:
    I’m growing my natural hair color out, but…?
    I’m growing my natural hair color out, but I’m going from blonde to a light-medium brown. I’m actually stopping dying my hair all together. I’ve been to a salon and they said they’d have to dye my whole head. I really like my natural color but my roots aren’t long enough to chop off all the blonde. I was thinking about using Color Glaze like John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze Amber to Maple. Would that help at least blend in the blonde until my roots are long enough to exist without the blonde? My hair’s starting to look trashy with the 7ish inches of brown and the blonde. And I look terrible with short hair…

    • ANSWER:
      you should either just dye ur roots to something like ur natural color.

      or dye your all ur hair something close to ur natural so when ur roots come in you wonnt see them.
      ^^ i did tht^^

  40. QUESTION:
    grow natural hair out?
    i’m half black and half filipina. so i’v been relaxing my hair for quite a while now, and to be honest, i forgot what my hair looks like. i want to stop relaxing my hair. im planing to just keep on straightening it with a hair straightener, then make the big cut when my hair grows out long enough. im really nervous though because i don’t know if my hair is an afro, or is the curls grow down. does anyone have any advice on how to take care of natural hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm…

      well taking care of natural hair is taking care of hair. There’s no special secret way that the hair gods have hidden from us. Shampoo and condition just like normal the only thing is you won’t be relaxing your hair so of course the texture is going to change.

      Your hair texture might be an afro or curly who knows? Especially since you’re mixed there’s going to be a likely chance that it can be any texture.

      I would normally say not to straighten your hair with the flat iron but i’ll leave that up to you especially since your hair is probably not 100% coarse. With hair like mine the heat would be the equivalent of a relaxer so it wouldn’t make sense but I don’t know what your hair texture is.

      Seriously to take care of natural hair you are going to shampoo it, condition it, and comb it. You’re going to want to find a nice leave in moisturizer or make one yourself. You can google natural homemade hair products to see homemade recipes. There’s no big secret.

      This is a youtube video of me with my afro. I’ve been natural for 8 years now. Good luck

  41. QUESTION:
    Any tips on how to grow out natural hair color gracefully?
    I am tired of coloring my hair and would like to grow out my natural hair (which is slightly lighter than hair color, and has gray) I have long hair and really do not want to cut it any shorter then it is. Someone suggested highlights — Any Suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      What I had to do when I decided to stop dying my hair, was whenever the roots started showing, I picked a color closest to my natural color and dyed it. I know it sounds ironic, but that’s probably the best thing to do.

      You could ask a hair stylist. They know more about hair than most of us!

    African American Growing Out Natural Hair Tips?
    Hi I am a 26 year old African American Woman and I recently cut my hair down to a miniature Afro I would like to know how do I need to upkeep my hair so it can grow back long and healthy and what products do I need to use on my hair? Moisture seems to be the problem for me and also developing split ends is another/

    • ANSWER:
      Natural hair requires a lot of patience and grooming to keep it moisturized and to gain length.

      Shampoo your hair with sulfate free shampoos, or co-wash and only shampoo once per month to clarify. Co-washing is shampooing the hair with conditioner only. It will help maintain the moisture in natural hair. I’ve tried this and it works wonders. Just make sure your conditioner is free of silicone.

      Moisturize your hair daily with a moisturizer that is free of petroleum and mineral oil. Follow up with an oil or butter to seal in the moisture. Wear protective styles often: two strand twists, cornrows, buns. This lessens breakage and “fairy knots”. Never comb try hair, in fact finger comb your hair only.

      Sleep in a satin bonnet or scarf at night and remember to seal your ends at night with oil.

      Good Shampoos: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Shampoo. Curls Curlicious Cleansing Cream, Kinky-Curly Come Clean

      Good Conditioners: Giovanni Smooth as Silk Deep Moisture Conditioner, Curls Coconut Sublime Conditioner, Curls Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea

      Good Moisturizers: Shea butter, Karen’s Body Beautiful Hair Milk, Cream, or Butter, Curls Milkshake

      Good Oil: Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Jojoba oil, Olive oil

      My hair stylist says that most people’s hair grows at a rate of about 1/4 inch to half an inch per month.

  50. QUESTION:
    I am growing my hair out. How long should your bangs be before when you comb your hair it stays back natural.
    When I comb my hair back it just goes foward after it dries out. How long does your hair have to be for you to just wear it back and for your hair to stay that way?

    • ANSWER:
      You have to train your hair to do that. The hair in the front of your head naturally grows forward so it wants to lay that way. If you want your hair to stay back then you can train your hair by brushing/combing your hair back to how you want it. Also helps if you blow dry it in the direction you want it to go. It will take some time but it does work.


Growing Hair Out Hairstyles

Different hair styles

Proper styling of hairs play a very vital role in giving you that desired look which is perfect as per your face and other facial features. Indeed a small change in one’s hairstyle can change the complete look of that person. Comfortable and easy to maintain hair styles are a dream of everyone – adults and children alike.

For people with curly hairs, there are couple of hair styling tips – Don’t shampoo every day, comb conditioner through hair in the shower, never use a brush on dry hair, only untangle when the hair is wet, and apply styling products to dripping wet hair. Use styling products suited for your hair type.

And if you have the oval shaped head then makes sweeping bangs across the front of your face. It makes your face look a little shorter and draws attention to your jaw and cheekbones. Straight, sleek styles work very well on oval faces. If you want to wear your hair up, try a lowish ponytail or a big bun/chignon thing toward the nape of your neck.

For longish hairs, try these hair style – half curl thing – the messy waves look the movie stars love… blow your hair out but don’t make it too straight, and plug in a 1 inch barrel curling iron (the big one). Grab about an inch wide section of hair and close the curling iron about two inches from the ends of your hair, not at the very bottom. Curl the iron up until about 2 inches from your scalp, and hold it up and down. Pull it out and spray it with a light hairspray, like Bumble & Bumble classic hairspray. Do this all over your head and don’t brush it out.

That is why it is crucial to use a good hair oil like Mira hair oil

So, if you are having hair issues with your hair you need to give this amazing oil a try! One try and you will be hooked, simply because you will be amazed at the transformation of your hair,

Why use Mira? It is not just a hair growth formula; it is a complete hair nourishing and beautifying treatment! Even if you have healthy hair and want to make it even more beautiful and healthy-this is it! Plus it has no smell and no side effects!

  2. QUESTION:
    Hairstyles/Growing Out Hair ?
    Hello, so I know I asked this question before but:
    I have type 2b curly hair (aka wavy)
    right now i have sidebangs, and some angles, in the front.
    i’m really stumped, i have no idea what to do with my hair. i want to grow my hair out fast, like all to one length i think? right now when its wavy its to the middle of my boob and when flat ironed its like midback, past my boob.
    What hairstyle should i do?
    Uhm so pleaseee answer this! Oh my hair is pretty thick, and its healthy i would guess, its soft and shiny and i don’t use tooo many products and i use panteen shampoo/conditioner, and it works really well for me (frizzy to smooth). ok thankyou!
    Also my hairstylist sucks, and I live in New Jersey, so please don’t say “ask your hairstylist.”
    I have highlights right now and i dont want to die my hair

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grow half an inch each month on its own. But what I would suggest it try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo and Conditioner. I use it all the timeand it does aid in growing your hair faster. I’d
      say massage it into your scalp so it can get to your roots well this increases the blood flow helping
      it grow faster. When shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.You can find it at walmart in the pet section.
      You should drink plenty of water to help condition your hair.

      Eating Coconut oil also has benifits its not only good for adding nutrients to the hair, but its also
      good for weight loss and has many more benifits.
      And don’t forget about exercising, as much as I hate it, it actually helps by increasing the blood flow
      and stimulating the hair to grow faster.

      Hope I helped!

    this is something i have been wanting to do for a few years. So im going to let my hair grow out. Since i finally made the decision that i wanted to have long hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Long hair is for a good number of reasons.. Cut it and donate for cancer victims. Grow it long and tail it back so you have a permanent back scratcher.Wrap it around your neck and hang yourself if you are suicidal. Or learn how to braid and make yourself a rope so you can climb into tall buildings. Whatever you do choose for a style will be totally up to you. Kind of like the you made your bed ,now lie in it syndrome. you might want to think of the weight it will bear on you as well,so you will need to strengthen yourself in order to survive the consequences of having it.. And as a final note, I would ask a number of girls how they would like you to wear it and their opinion on it would be the most valuable to consider…

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, stop using heat tools!

      The best and popular method for today’s modern styles is to use rollers, especially for curly or frizzy hair. The curl lasts a long time and it is better for your hair. You can make it straight, achieve volume, curl, or both. Heat tools are very bad for your hair, even if using heat protestant beforehand, and the curl hardly lasts as long. There are different types of rollers, depending on what you want to achieve and your hair type. The popular roller types are Velcro, plastic, and brush. You can also use sponge rollers for sleeping. You might want to start with medium sized brush rollers. They are relatively easy to put in and hold in place with a pick. For volume, use large rollers on the top of your head. To dry your hair quickly, use a bonnet type of hair dryer, or just let them air dry. Many gals roll their hair at bedtime and take them out in the morning, which makes styling really fast.

      For your type of hair, use jumbo plastic rollers and roll your hiar with gel when it is wet.

      You can get rollers at store like walmart, but they sell out quickly because they are so popular now. You can also buy them online.

  16. QUESTION:
    What are good hairstyles for guys growing out hair (from a buzz cut) that doesn’t require cutting it again?
    So, I got a buzz cut about two months ago (because my room mate screwed up m hair) and I’ve already had to sit through the whole awkward puffball stages (thank God for hats!). Now my hair is about 2 1/2 inches (bordering 3 inches) and is starting to come down over my forehead. So I’m guessing it’s long enough to be styled.

    My goal is to grow my hair to 4 1/2 inches. But I’m having some BAD hair days in between and I just want it to get longer. Can anyone give me any style options that require little to no cutting of my hair (I can’t bear to shed an inch more) to stop me from looking like an idiot while growing it out?

      There was no need to go through an “awkward puffball stage” while growing out a butch. If you had continued with short haircuts at frequent intervals, getting a slightly longer style each haircut and grooming the top with a control wax, your hair could have looked well groomed as it was growing out: short crew cut; medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. This is how guys used to grow out short buzzed styles back when every other college guy and college prep high school guys wore a crew, ivy or flat. While a butch suits relatively few guys, a good barber can design a short pomp(pompadour) style-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut), flat top crew cut- to fully suit most young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. By the time the hair is in a regular taper cut, the top hair would be about three inches and the back and sides could begin to grow over the collar and ears. Since your hair has grown 2.5- 3 inches in two months, it is growing much faster than the average rate of 1/2″ per month. Determine the style that you want and the lengths of hair in various parts of the head for that style. Then, you can go for a style that will not reduce the length of the hair in any area of the head to a point where it will not grow back to the required length for that area in the time it will take for the hair to reach the length required in the area of the head needing the most growth to achieve the required length. I cannot suggest an interim style since I do not know the desired final style. Maybe take a look at the medium and long galleries at the haircutsformen site for ideas. If you don’t want to cut the hair and just keep it under control, try krew comb (in the jar) or some control wax, but use it in extreme moderation. Krew comb is more of a hydrogenated wax and washes out readily. Actual waxes can build up and not wash out with normal shampooing. In that case: apply shampoo to dry hair and lather up; rinse hair; shampoo again as one normally does. In case you go for a butch in the future, knowledge of the basic short styles is helpful when trying to achieve a complementary style as it grows out……

      Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

      Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
      1) Towel dry hair.
      2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
      3)Transfer wax to palms.
      4) Smooth palms over hair.
      5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
      Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need more photos of any of the styles discussed above let me know.
      Good Luck!

    What should I know about growing my hair out?
    I am a guy and I want to grow my hair long. Not absurdly long, but about the length of Johnny Depp or Diego Forlan. I have two main questions
    1. What are some tips for growing my hair out?
    2. What are some hairstyles i can use during the awkward stages between normal length and long hair?

    • ANSWER:
      try shaggy, wavy effect :

      This one is easy to do. Shampoo and condition your hair. Towel dry. Apply a mousse or other styling product lightly to your damp hair to give it some texture.. While your hair is still damp, bend your head over so you’re drying your hair upside down. Dry your hair with the blow dryer while using your hands to scrunch it. Once your hair is dry, throw your head back and immediately spray with silvikrin Flexible Hairspray

      here are some tips for u

      1) make sure it’s healthy. use lots of conditioner, get it trimmed when need be, etc.
      2) massage your scalp. it increases the blood flow and makes your hair grow faster.
      3) get lots of sleep. your hair grows fastest when you’re resting.
      4) eat as much fruit/veg as you can.
      5) drink 8 glasses of water a day.
      6) exercise at least 3 times a week for half an hour. again, it increases the blood flow.
      7) there are some vitamins you can get from places like Holland & Barrett and Boots.

    What are some cute hairstyles while growing out your hair?
    Sorry if the question doesn’t make sense.):

    But its basically “What are some cute hairstyles while grow out bangs” except its your whole head.

    I wear my hair straight all the time. Even though my hair is naturally curly. Since its summer I want to start growing out my hair and minimize the heat damage to it. But I don’t know any cute hair styles that I can do with my REALLY curly hair. Other than putting it in a ponytail. And wearing it down.

    So any other suggestions??
    Ohh and if theres any products that I can buy at…. target or something. That will help hair growth. Please share. Ahaha.

    Thanks(:

  20. QUESTION:
    How can i thin out my hair while i am growing it out?
    I am growing my hair out for an emo/punk hairstyle, but i have had long hair before and i have very thick hair. I need to make it thinner permanently, which i know is probably impossible. But i need to make it appear a lot thinner while i am growing it out. I used to have very short, spikey hair and so i have a while to go. I want it to reach my nose or lower when right now it is only at my eyebrow and already it is very thick.

    • ANSWER:
      it’s not impossible. you can buy a pair of thinning shears for under . they have a blade that looks ridged and they cut every other hair without changing the length. they are easy to use, you can’t mess it up really.

      some hair places will have this as part of your haircut, depending on where you live, and others will look at you like you’re crazy (if you live somewhere where everyone has light, thin, sparse hair, ahem, not saying where but take a guess) and tell you it’s impossible

  22. QUESTION:
    Growing long hair from a short hairstyle?
    I’ve always had short hair, and I got a haircut about two weeks ago. I’m going to grow hair now, however, because I listen to metal and I think long hair is awesome.

    I was just wondering; my hair is now (because of the haircut) a bit short in the back and sides, yet the top is not as short. (So it’s just a typical haircut, really) If I start growing long hair now, will it even out?

    • ANSWER:
      just wait till it grows a bit then get it cut even or another style that is a bit longer so it’l look good while its growing

  23. QUESTION:
    I’m growing my hair out, what are some good styles?
    I have very short hair (about an inch past the bottom of my ear) and it is baby fine. I am trying to grow it out and have looked up ways to make it grow faster and a bit thicker. I have read that you don’t want to use heat to dry/style your hair and that makes sense. However, how can I style my hair? I’m looking for good hairstyles for hair that is thin and hangs lank if not styled. Any suggestions? Please note that my hair doesn’t take a curl very well. I tried using curlers that have a kind of velcro feel to them, but it just made my hair frizzy.
    Also, what are some suggestions for making my hair grow faster? I’m looking for vitamins, things to apply to my hair, etc.
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t know of any products to make your hair grow faster (my hair grows fast enough already) but if you give yourself regular scalp massages (like how they do it at salons) it improves the blood flow to your scalp and makes healthier hair.

      As for styling, try putting mousse in it and blow-drying it upside down to create some volume, and use a round brush to flip out the ends. Create a side part, and secure it back using a cute hair clip or jeweled bobby pin.

  24. QUESTION:
    Hairstyles for when my hair grows out!?
    Okay, this is a wierd combination…. I am like a preppy skater, and I like the whole emo hairstyles. I have strawberry blonde hair, and when it grows out, I want to know what hairstyles are cute, and what colors look best with strawberry blonde. Pics would help!

    • ANSWER:
      Definitely opt for side bangs and a layered look.
      Strawberry blonde has undertones of reddish, and if you want to color your hair, I suggest going for a auburny brown. Kinda like chestnut color.

  28. QUESTION:
    What are some unique, sexy hairstyles I can wear while my hair is growing out?
    I’m 15 and gay male. I used to have like really super short hair but I have decided to try out long hair for something new. I want my hair to grow all the way down my back like Calpernia Addams. I was told it would take two years for that but I have noticed a little bit of growth. I got it shaped up so it would grow “neater” and it looks okay but shaggy at times. My hair is still short and it is barely getting over my ears but in the back, it is getting thick but not enough for a ponytail, just a rat tail. Its still short but it is getting longer and I bought me a headband today to hold my hair back but what are some neat hairstyles I can wear while its getting long? What kind of hairstyle can I wear to make my hair appear to be longer? How can I make it grow really fast like I want it?

    • ANSWER:
      You could try buying some prenatal vitamins to help it grow faster. Also if you go to a vitamin store they should be able to help you find some other supplements to help your hair grow quick and healthy.

      As far as hairstyles to make it look long.. Headbands are always good. You can also pull your hair halfway back and tease the top to make it appear like you have more longer hair.

  29. QUESTION:
    Im growing my hair out, how can i keep it healthy?
    And also any basic hairstyles i can put my hair in while growing it, a ponytail doesnt look right on me.

    • ANSWER:
      If you’re growing it out you need to keep it healthy.
      that means no hair products, gel, hairspray and things such as that.
      it may make your hair look healthy but some products damage hair more than a flat iron.

      you also shouldn’t straighten your hair, curl it or such as that, it will scar your hair and make it very unhealthy.

      brush it every night for at least 15-30 minutes and it will grow 12 inches a year. -proven fact.
      just keep your hair down and natural, you can also do a bang poof. pictures below.

    the last time i got my hair cut i buzzed all of it off evenly. it’s been at least 4 months since then.

    should i wait some more time before going to get it cut again?

    Nice Hairstyles without heat and hair growing tips?
    So im trying to grow my hair long, and im trying to not use heat. Ive seen hairstyles where you sleep with your hair a certain way, and it comes out pretty, but for some reason, i just CANNOT sleep with those things in my hair, haha. So do you have any suggestions on how i could not use heat and also make it look somewhat decent? my hair is like all flippy and frizzy, so i usually straighten it. Also, i need some tips on growin my hair..

    Thankya!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Scrunching it doesnt do anything

    • ANSWER:
      you can just a frizz-control cream and put that in, then spray your hair with the saltwater spray for beachy waves
      scrunch it (try herbal essences scrunching gel. only think that works for me and i have a similar hair type it seems like)
      braid it (if you put frizz-control cream in while your hair is wet, french braid it, let it dry, then take it out, your hair will be wavy and not frizzy)

      to grow it, get it trimmed every 4-6 weeks: this will clean up the dead ends that prevent your hair from growing faster, and your hair will grow faster this way.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest washing your hair before you go to bed… towel dry… comb through, part hair and seperate the two sections…then tightly braid 3-4 sections on each side. Sleep in braids, take them down in the morning- All set. This gives you a nice wave, not a crimp! The fewer braids you do the bigger the waves.

  41. QUESTION:
    Questions about boys long hair, hairstyles, and dreadlocks?
    *Note: This question is rather long. I’m not usually one for long questions, but there’s kinda 4 parts to it. I’d really like it if you would take the time to read all 4 parts especially if you know a lot about hair, hairstyles, or dreadlocks. Thanks!*
    Okay well just a quick description of my hair: I’m a guy with brown, curly hair. It’s not too curly, but curly enough that some days it gets small ringlets on the sides but other days it might just be wavy depending on the weather. It’s down a little bit past the back of my neck when dry and all curled up and when it’s wet it goes a few inches past the bottom of my neck. My bangs are down to the top of my lips when dry and to the bottom of my face (chin area) when wet. I am still recovering from a very short haircut and want to have long hair so cutting it to take off length really isn’t an option for me at this point. I have a few questions today, so please answer as many as you can.
    Question 1: My hair is very bulky and has a lot of weight on it in the middle on the sides and I would like to thin it so it can look even all over. The only problem is I’m scared to thin it. I’ve had so many bad haircuts and I really don’t want that to happen again. Will thinning it take off ANY length at all? Or just take off some of the weight on the sides of my head? What will it look like after it gets thinned? Can someone please post some before and after pictures? I would really like to thin it and I think that can help with a lot of the problems I have but I am worried as to what it will be like afterward.
    Question 2: When ever I part my bangs down the middle of my head they curl inward and get in the way of my eyes and tickle my face. I can never seem to get them to curl outwards so what I’ve been having to do it push them backward onto my head so they will hopefully not curl into my face, but even sometimes that doesn’t work. I’ve tried a lot of different gels and hair products including moose, 2 different types of straightening products (only applied to my bangs), and general hair gel. None of them seem to entirely work and if they do, my bangs are usually very puffy. I need a quick way to make them not curl in my face that I can do within 5 minutes before school. I don’t have much time in the morning and straightening them isn’t an option. I’ve tried blow-drying them too but that doesn’t seem to work much either. I’m guessing that when they grow out they will curl inward lower and will eventually turn into a big spiral curl but that’s going to be a very long time. I’ve already had this problem for many months. Any ideas?
    Question 3: If thinning my hair and trying to fix the bangs doesn’t work very well, I might want a hair style change. I don’t want to have a completely different style, but maybe partially dreading my hair? Like just picking 5 or 6 random sections of my hair to lock and leave the rest curly like it is now? Will that look weird? Are there any pictures people can post of someone who has done that? Will the rest of the hair grow faster than the dreads because the dreads are normally shorter then the rest of the hair because they are all rolled/knotted up? Or will the hair all stay the same length for the most part? I’ve read up on how to dreadlock hair and I know how much work it is. I don’t want a high-maintenance hairstyle so having a full head of dreads may not be for me, but how much work would it be for just a few? Would having a few be even more work than a full head of them?
    *Sorry for a lot of different questions in Question 3, but I’d appreciate it if they could all be answered :)*
    Question 4: Are there any other hairstyles sort of like dreadlocks of the same nature? Like not a clone of dreadlocks or anything, but something that is semi-permanent that you only get done once but don’t have to maintain much? And I mean a free-flowing hairstyle, now something that is braided/tied to your head somehow.

    Thank you in advance!

  42. QUESTION:
    Hairdressers, help! – Styling, Growing out hair..?
    I want to grow out my hair, and have long bangs to cover my forehead.. quite like Zac Efron’s hairstyle. My hair is currently 1-2 inches long, and is 1/3 covering my forehead. I’m just wondering.. do I need to get it styled like Zac Efron’s and THEN grow it out, or just grow it long and then get it styled? I got my hair cut last around 2 months ago, I asked the hairdresser for a trim, like a very short trim just to cut out the split ends, and she just cut it short, so I am kinda worried if I have to get it styled first it will take me even longer to grow out.

    How to grow my hair out the right way?
    Okay i started growing my hair out this summer.. It’s not that long yet but I kinda wanna make it look like this..http://www.menshairstylesonline.com/Hair/Medium-Length-Mens-Hairstyles/tom-welling-wedgecut.JPG do I go and get trims or jus let it grow out?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, when growing hair out to any style, you need occasional trims to shape the hair (a lot less often than when maintaining the length). Make sure you tell the stylist what you are trying to do so he/she doesn’t take too much off in the wrong places. Also make sure to choose a very skilled stylist.
      Good luck!

  45. QUESTION:
    How to style short buzzed hair in growing stage?
    Hello everyone. Well I recently had my whole head buzzed to clipper number 3 two weeks ago. Now that its growing back, its looking more and more like an afro-it seems my hair grows straight out, not down! Im a caucasian male by the way. I think thats the last time I’m going to just shave my entire head, I have an odd shaped head and now it seems that even when washed and dried it looks bad, its just uneven because my head is uneven and looks…well, bad. So for you hairstylists out there…

    1.) What should I do with my hair while its growing out of the buzz look stage? I cant stand just washing it and drying it and dealing with how it looks. How can I make it look more even or even give it some style, without looking “flashy” I guess.

    2.) When my hair becomes a reasonable length (anyone know how long it takes to grow hair), what kind of hairstyle can I go with that is clean and professional, yet not high maintenance or too short?

    3.) When I go for my next haircut (trim, im assuming), what do I tell the stylist? It won’t be ready for a true style yet but Im sure it will need to be trimmed since by whole head is at the same length right now and when it grows it will look like a big hot ball of mess lol. Advice?? Pictures of hairstyles you guys like!! Anything!

    • ANSWER:
      A butch fully suits relatively few guys. A good barber can design one of the short pomp(pompadour) styles-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut), flat top crew cut- to fully suit almost any young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. The way to grow out a butch is to go for a slightly longer short haircut every three weeks. For a guy whose hair grows at the average rate of 1/8″ per week and starting with a butch: short crew cut, medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. By a regular taper cut, the hair on top will be about three inches long and the hair can begin to grow over the ears and collar if desired, switching to haircuts every six to nine weeks to add shape and even up new growth. A control wax will keep the hair looking well groomed while at crew cut and ivy league length. Try krew comb, the one in the jar. One of the small, flat, oval, plastic pocket brushes that one finger fits through and barbers sell for about a dollar, also known as a butch comb also helps….

      http://i54.tinypic.com/28ja9nq.jpg

      …a regular comb is not much use with a crew cut. Barber supply houses sell these items so do and all sally beauty supply shops which are located everywhere.

      http://i51.tinypic.com/zlvwo2.jpg

      Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

      Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
      1) Towel dry hair.
      2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
      3)Transfer wax to palms.
      4) Smooth palms over hair.
      5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
      Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need more photos of any of the styles discussed above let me know.

    Tips for hairstyles while growing out?
    Hi everybody,
    Since I can remember, I’ve had my hair short because my mom didn’t want me to have long hair, until I told her that it’s time I decide what to do with my hair… =)
    So, I’ve been growing my hair out for a few months now and my hair goes just a bit below my ears, but I’m afraid of the “in-between awkward phase” that I will soon get to. I can’t put it in a ponytail yet, but it will look horrible because i don’t really know what to do with my hair until I get to the length I want (shoulder length) Could you please give me some tips for hairstyles ‘in between’?

    Growing out hair for guys?
    Recently I’ve decided to grow out my hair again (I used to have it long, but i didn’t take good care of it so it didn’t look so good). I have wavy hair, and it is dark brown.

    What are your tips and suggestions for growing out hair, so as to keep it looking good? What are good hairstyles that you know of? Especially in the “in-between” mode from short to long? What is the best length and how long will it take to grow?

    And a questions for the ladies… do girls like long hair on guys?

    • ANSWER:
      My dh has hair like an Afro, if he was blow drying it.

      Now? He started to finally listen to me, and it took him over 4 decades to listen. Yes, he’s stubborn.
      He was buying hair cream, in 2 hours his hair is as dry as before, so why bother? Because it was ‘addicted’. Before that, he was blow-drying his hair. He also washes his hair everyday. He is also letting his hair grow longer. It’s now like Victor Newman & Nick Newman of the Young & the Restless.

      But he ran out, on our trip one day, and he started using Gold Bond hand lotion – leftover from his hand. Now, he washes his hair 2x a week. His hair is softer, well managed, silkier. He also just comb his hair when it’s damp and air drying it. Even during a windy storm, his hair no longer gets frizzy or poffy. We did a lot of walking in the wind, cold 30 below by the time he came home they weren’t messed up, still styled nicely!

      Source(s):
      I know hair. I have over 4 decades of hair know-how. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy hair down to my knees. Previously damaged by perming & dyeing in the 80′s & 90′s. I’ve known people in their 30′s whose hair stopped growing from ironing their hair in the 70′s.

    How long will it take to grow out to that length? (My hair grows pretty quick) Also, Will my hair stay as thick or will the thickness settle down? My dad said that the thickness will not be as extreme as it is now. do girls like it when guys have hair this length. give me some opinions! thanks!
    Also, how will my hair look longer? curly,wavy, straight?

    • ANSWER:
      I like your hair the way it is now! But, if you want to let it grow, I would. It will probably not be as thick at the bottom though. Also, it won’t be naturally curly like the picture you put up. So, you’ll probably have to buy curling stuff. Good luck, i’m also growing my hair out :)

  6. QUESTION:
    help with growing out hair (guy) 10 points :D?
    Hi. Since I’ve moved schools (private to public) i finally have the freedom to do what ever the hell i want with my hair. Anyways. I’ve really looked up to kurt cobain’s hair (guy from band Nirvana) which is really a messy long hair look. Me and my younger brother has been growing our hair for 6 months. His hair turns out all nice and junk and mine is bland. I think his hair is defined as “straight” hair while mine is kinda thicker. I mean, the bangs and sides look perfect, like it falls into place.

    My questions are:
    1. What kind of hair do i have? (remember it’s not straight but it’s really thick)
    2. Will I have to wait longer until it results better? Cause i heard it can take 2 years and i think i am in the awkward stage of growing it.

    Any one with similar probs or has had probs like this?

    thanks

    • ANSWER:
      You have thick hair, lol. Have a hairdresser or somebody equally as cool thin it a little, if you want. And yeah, straighten it with a straightening iron. Make sure it doesn’t look greasy and shiz, get a good conditioner/shampoo etc. And if you want get some highlights. No insane colors though or it’ll look gay, but normal highlights make the girls SWOON and I know this bahaha. Also, skin is more likely to become more oily and break out if you have long hair, but if you have something awesome like ProActive you’re good. Just be careful bro.

  7. QUESTION:
    What are good hairstyles for guys growing out hair (from a buzz cut) that doesn’t require cutting it again?
    So, I got a buzz cut about two months ago (because my room mate screwed up m hair) and I’ve already had to sit through the whole awkward puffball stages (thank God for hats!). Now my hair is about 2 1/2 inches (bordering 3 inches) and is starting to come down over my forehead. So I’m guessing it’s long enough to be styled.

    My goal is to grow my hair to 4 1/2 inches. But I’m having some BAD hair days in between and I just want it to get longer. Can anyone give me any style options that require little to no cutting of my hair (I can’t bear to shed an inch more) to stop me from looking like an idiot while growing it out?

    • ANSWER:
      There was no need to go through an “awkward puffball stage” while growing out a butch. If you had continued with short haircuts at frequent intervals, getting a slightly longer style each haircut and grooming the top with a control wax, your hair could have looked well groomed as it was growing out: short crew cut; medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. This is how guys used to grow out short buzzed styles back when every other college guy and college prep high school guys wore a crew, ivy or flat. While a butch suits relatively few guys, a good barber can design a short pomp(pompadour) style-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut), flat top crew cut- to fully suit most young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. By the time the hair is in a regular taper cut, the top hair would be about three inches and the back and sides could begin to grow over the collar and ears. Since your hair has grown 2.5- 3 inches in two months, it is growing much faster than the average rate of 1/2″ per month. Determine the style that you want and the lengths of hair in various parts of the head for that style. Then, you can go for a style that will not reduce the length of the hair in any area of the head to a point where it will not grow back to the required length for that area in the time it will take for the hair to reach the length required in the area of the head needing the most growth to achieve the required length. I cannot suggest an interim style since I do not know the desired final style. Maybe take a look at the medium and long galleries at the haircutsformen site for ideas. If you don’t want to cut the hair and just keep it under control, try krew comb (in the jar) or some control wax, but use it in extreme moderation. Krew comb is more of a hydrogenated wax and washes out readily. Actual waxes can build up and not wash out with normal shampooing. In that case: apply shampoo to dry hair and lather up; rinse hair; shampoo again as one normally does. In case you go for a butch in the future, knowledge of the basic short styles is helpful when trying to achieve a complementary style as it grows out……

      Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

  8. QUESTION:
    Im a guy growing my hair out, do I have to occasionally get a trim?
    Yeah I’ve been growing my hair out for about a year and its been reaching my shoulders, but I hear that people growing their hair should get trims once every few months for like split ends and stuff, is it recommended though?

    • ANSWER:
      it is a myth that hair grows faster after a trim, it will, however look healthier… but you’ll lose a little length. If you think your ends look frizzed and dry, trim off an inch, if not, then dont bother! Hope this helps! Cheers!

    Tips for growing out hair (guy)?
    Right now I have short hair (#2 on the sides with a little longer top). I wear it all gelled and up in the front. I really want to grow my hair out but I know it will take forever and I don’t know what to do with it while its growing. What do you suggest I do? and I want that shaggy look but my hair is mainly straight. Do you know any good styling products to give it the wavy/shaggy look?

  10. QUESTION:
    What hair length do girls like on guys who are growing their hair out very long?
    Im growing my hair to atleast classic length (just below my butt) and im curious as to what girls think is a good length for guys who have or are growing their hair very long?
    im growing my hair to atleast just below my butt. I am not sure what is meant by “skater hair”?

    • ANSWER:
      As a guy with knee length hair, I have to honestly say, no… Even if your hair is very healthy. I think the main problem is that it kind of makes you like a girl from far away (unless you have facial hair, but a lot of girls don’t like that either)… But once you meet a girl who goes beyond looks, they don’t mind too much… It’s nice too, when you find a girl who loves to play with your hair… I’ve had girlfriends who’ve forced me not to get a haircut. But in terms of general attractiveness, I noticed not to many girls are into it.

    Help with growing out really curly hair (guy)?
    I’ve always wanted to grow out my hair but in high school I was in jrotc and had to keep my hair cut within military regulations. Now tha tI’ve graduated I want to grow it out but its not looking too well. I’ve got unsightly curly hair and it looks like this right now

    I pretty much have to wear hats right now cause even flat ironing my hair doesn’t help much.

    So any tips on making this hair growing go a little more smoothly?

    • ANSWER:
      man.. my hair was just as curly when I let it be (it’s short now.. and I had it ironed out for Halloween in the picture in my avatar). You are just in the awkward phase right now.. there will be plenty of those along the way.. just start taking vitamins to try and get your hair to grow faster and make sure to get it trimmed at least every 6 months.. sooner if you getting lots of split ends.. other than that just relax and remember that even on the day you hate your curls the most.. the ladies love them :)

      best thing is.. with curls as tight as we have.. you can just wash your hair.. throw a hint of product to keep it from frizzing.. and just go.. saves on a lot of time lol.. since it’s going to look the same whether you work on it or not :)

    how to make a black guys hair straight without letting it grow out?
    hello everyone
    my partner has short hair and when i put products in his hair, it looks straight and really nice! unfortunately it only will stay straight for a little while because he is black. he likes it too and told me that he can let his hair grow out and then make it straight+cut it. i don’t really like his hair when it is longer (and curly) is there another way to make his hair straight without having to wait until it is longer to straight it?
    thank you

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a cosmetologist and can tell you the only way besides flat ironing his hair, (if that is even possible for his length) is to chemically relax it.
      By chemically relaxing the hair it will break all the bonds that create curls in the hair and leave him with straight hair for 4-6 months and will need to be re-done. Almost any salon will preform a chemical relaxing service and it usually costs anywhere between -100.

      Hope this helps, good luck! :)

  14. QUESTION:
    about how long does it take for a guys hair to grow out?
    and can you give me tips to get my hair to grow longer faster.

    • ANSWER:
      My boyfriend got almost an inch cut off and it was back in a little over a month..Most guys hair grows faster than girls..Don’t blow dry, straighten, etc. (I’m guessing you don’t, but just thought I’d mention it) And don’t use any products (gel, hairspray..) haha they won’t help growth. Also use women’s shampoo AND conditioner- they’re gentler on hair, which in the long run will help hair grow healthier which makes it longer faster.

    Growing out hair (skater hair) for guys?
    I’m trying to grow out my hair and get the “skater” look, like Ryan Sheckler in this picture http://images.starpulse.com/pictures/2007/04/02/previews/Ryan%20Sheckler-SGG-066387.jpg

    Haven’t gotten a haircut in about 3 months, and while my hair is growing longer (not long enough yet) it doesn’t look good. It has that straight “bowl cut” look and is also pretty poofy (my hair is thick and straight).

    I’m wondering should I just keep growing to the desired length and have it look bad before getting a haircut, or can I go to a hairdresser to get it “layered” and thinned out? Will this ruin my progress? Thank you!

  19. QUESTION:
    For guys growing out their hair, how long does the awkward stage last?

    • ANSWER:
      haha your just like me xD
      heres an example: i went from like 1-2 inches to around 6-7 inches. yea dramatic change and between that i had a really bad awkward stage where i couldnt do anything to it because it was too short. i didnt get a haircut for like 5-6 months because i wanted to grow it out. haha it was kinda wavy, so it looked weird, (i straighten mine now) but now since i grew it out, i dont regret growing it out, because i can style it however i want.. well “the stage” depends on how long you want it and how your gonna style it. my hair, from crew cut, to like “asian” hair took like about a year. xD because i wasnt used to all that hair stuff like how to straighten my hair properly and how to style it without just using gel, etc. on average, id say itl take you 5-7 months tops if you want long hair and for meduim-short hair, 3-5 months tops. gl

    this is something i have been wanting to do for a few years. So im going to let my hair grow out. Since i finally made the decision that i wanted to have long hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Long hair is for a good number of reasons.. Cut it and donate for cancer victims. Grow it long and tail it back so you have a permanent back scratcher.Wrap it around your neck and hang yourself if you are suicidal. Or learn how to braid and make yourself a rope so you can climb into tall buildings. Whatever you do choose for a style will be totally up to you. Kind of like the you made your bed ,now lie in it syndrome. you might want to think of the weight it will bear on you as well,so you will need to strengthen yourself in order to survive the consequences of having it.. And as a final note, I would ask a number of girls how they would like you to wear it and their opinion on it would be the most valuable to consider…

  21. QUESTION:
    why are guys growing out their hair and girls are cutting theirs?
    i don’t understand i’m not against it and all but, i would think long haired girls are cute (if i was a guy) because, they can have it easier and not have to put all the work into wearing pig tails. It kinda intimidates me that there are some guys with longer hair than me because, i haven’t had long hair since 4th grade. but, i’m scared that most of them love their hair so much that they don’t think they need to wash it.(sorry germaphobic and aspergers A.K.A. texture & scent picky) i feel really bad for the girls who don’t think about it before dating a guy :(.

    • ANSWER:
      Step 1 – Trim your hair as you grow it. Split ends look sloppy one anyone. It may feel like you’re going backwards, but trim about an inch or half an inch every two months or so.

      Step 2 – Brush your hair as it grows. Keep it free of knots that can split and ruin your hair. Keep your hair tangle free and smooth at all times. If it gets into your eyes, tie it in a loose pony tail.

      Step 3 – Wash your hair but not too often. Overwashing can strip your hair of sheen and body. You can leave your hair unwashed for a day or two so that your unnatural oils will moisturize it. However, don’t go more than three days without washing your hair, especially as it grows longer. Unwashed long hair get stringy and the oil can come in continual contact with your skin to cause acne.

      Hope this helps, and Good Luck!

    i want to grow it into something like this perhaps:

    • ANSWER:
      I have hair longer then that in the picture and I have the same problems you do.

      Youll need a really good shampoo and conditioner. If you dont have allot of money go with fruties thats what I use. If you have the money go with the kronos system. It is really expensive but it works wonders.

      You will need to learn how to use a strait iron or hair dryer. I try to stay away from chemical straitners. You can use them just make sure you go to a good salon that can apply them for you.

    Right now its at a point where I wear a ball cap a lot because it at a length with no style options.

    Here’s my question: I see conflicting opinions online about whether to trim it often OR just live with it and let it grow. My hair is pretty healthy and I’ve learned how to keep it conditioned and not wash it everyday and not to use tons of products…yada yada.

    BUT!!!! I hate to get it trimmed because they ALWAYS take off more than you want.

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn’t really matter… You can do it both ways. People say it grows faster if you trim it though. Just tell the person who cuts your hair not to take like any off and dont go somewhere shitty like dollar cuts or walmart.

    My hair is currently right above my shoulders and is really thick and I was wondering if I should go to a barber shop and get it thinned or evened out? any other tips are greatly appreciated I want my hair to be real long

    • ANSWER:
      A few months back when I had longish hair ( I’ve since cut it) I found what really helped it grow was wearing protective hairstyles (tying it back and keeping it up), making sure my split-ends were trimmed, washing it every other day ( when you shampoo your hair everyday you strip your hair of healthy natural oils) and regularly deep conditioning it. Other than that I pretty much left it alone and it grew pretty rapidly. Mine was super thick as well but I decided against getting it thinned when I realised how many people would kill to have my hair thickness.

  32. QUESTION:
    guys growing hair long?
    (soft – light light brown hair that kinks and curls/vines on sides/burns/backs -which I hate) I have never grew my hair out real long. Thick and bushy but never long. I wear it short right now but I find myself always having to keep it up every week or two to keep it from going ivy on my ear or my back curling up on me.

    I am thinking about growing it long-ish. How long would it take a medium to short haired man to grow it to what is considered short for a woman? I am sick of the upkeep in cutting, refuse to gel and style it otherwise and skinned doesn’t work for me. So long is the next extreme.

    What do you think for how long it would take/any styles,tips,etc… I really want something that requires minimum upkeep (no geling/thinning and fading/etc..

    I see more and more men with longish hair now. Is it something of a taboo cause 9-10 of the style pics are short and gel types.

    • ANSWER:
      If your hair is naturally wavy, you could probably pull this one off:

      http://www.junction.co.uk/sites/default/files/imagecache/large/gruff-rhys-in-17-1website.jpg

      I would steer away from long “anime”/faddy hair styles. They are too quirky and high maintenance for most guys that are not totally into grooming and fashion. Avoid streaking, frosting, or outlandish highlights, too.

      It would take ~1yr to get it that long depending on how short your hair is now and how fast your hair grows. To keep it attractive (and not like some Eddie Vedder nightmare), you would probably need to use a leave-in conditioner and “deep” treatment (the equivalent of a mask for the hair) once every two weeks. But if you have naturally well-conditioned hair, that may not be necessary.

      The in-between stage will suck, though. When I grew my hair out in the 90s, I relied heavily on caps and bandanas to strap it all down until it was long enough.

    Growing your hair out for guys?
    Hello, I am a 18 year old boy that for my whole life have always had short hair. Now that I have left home and I’m in college away from my parents, I want to grow my hair out. I think men look beautiful with long hair, just like women, and for all of human history, men have always had long hair, with the exception of these last 300 years when haircuts became fashionable. I have always wanted to grow my hair out though, just like the men of the past. What can I do to insure I grow beautiful long hair like women have, and how long will I have to wait to have the same hair length women have?
    Also, no I am not gay, I am a heterosexual. I would prefer advice from women, since the men here believe men with long hair constitute being a homosexual.

    • ANSWER:
      i love men with long hair
      i think growing it out is a great idea and hair grows about a half inch to an inch a month if you are eating healthy and taking your vitamins.. you see hair feeds on blood so what you eat is very important also try hanging your head off the side of your bed and massaging your scalp every night and also a good brushing if your scalp and hair daily helps too..
      good luck..

    I’m a guy growing my hair out for first time?
    I’m a guy in college and a lot of the girls in my classes said I have really nice hair for a guy. So they gave me the idea to grow my hair out. So i let it grow out a bit, and now its shoulder length, but it lays very feminely (almost like a bob). I dont like this but a lot of girls at my school think its hot. The problem is my hair is very silky like a girls hair so I don’t think it looks good, however I do like having my hair long. I was wondering fi there are any styles that would look better on me that you can think of. I have soft features very “pretty boyish” and so a adrogynous style doesnt look good as it doesnt make me look masculine. I have no facial hair but think if this hair gets out of hand ill grow some. Light blue eyes and light brown hair with and almost blonde look.

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair is SILKY, that is a plus. That’s why girls LOVE YOUR HAIR, and that’s what hair is supposed to feel like (guys as well as girls’ hair).

      Do a pony tail. Continue taking good care of your hair – they are one of a kind! You’re unique already with blue eyes, light blonde with almost blonde look.

  41. QUESTION:
    I am growing my hair out from a short guys haircut. How long should it be before I go and get it cut into a?
    mid-neck length bob with bangs? I want to make sure the stylist has enough length to work with.

    • ANSWER:
      Shoulder length. You could get a little bit shorter if you get impatient but not much.

  42. QUESTION:
    Does it matter what hair cut you have before u try growing your hair out long? For guys?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, it depends on how long or short your hair was at first. But even when you want to grow your hair out, you’ll still need to go for trims to even out the length and cut any dead or dry ends. If you don’t have a hair part line, you’ll also need to start parting your hair somewhere once it’s long enough.

      So yeah, it can matter if your hair was on the short side of the spectrum.

    And what do I say to the barber? What if they cut it too short and I have to start over? I am growing a little above shoulder length and right now I’m at a little below the ears and my bangs are in the middle of my forehead and I wanna get it to my eyebrows

  49. QUESTION:
    Growing out hair question (guy)?
    I am 19 years old and have always had the same hair style. I have a long forehead and really thick hair, so when it grows, I have a “bowl cut” look. I have never let it grow past my eyebrows, but i’m starting to now. If I keep letting my hair grow longer (shoulder length) will the “bowl cut” look go away and actually look good? If so, do you have any tips for growing my hair out? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I went through that last year. I have generally the same hair type as you. I think that the bowl look will go away, but your hair will look tangled and dry and generally unhealthy. You may want to keep it in a ponytail, if that’s your style. I got tired of it myself. I have extremely thick hair and I was always hot and it was too much trouble to maintain it. You should try it. You can always cut it off if you don’t like it.

  50. QUESTION:
    Im a guy growing out my Hair need opinion.?
    So Im growing out my hair so its long enough to put in a ponytail or at least where my bangs dont cover my eyes.
    My sideburns are also gettting long,should i cut my side burns short or keep them long?
    what do you guys think would look better.

    • ANSWER:
      Glad I found your question: absolutely the dumbest thing I ever did was cut my long hair….and it’s taking forever to grow back (like less than an inch a month). When it’s almost to shoulder-length you can do anything you want with it: combed-back in a loose ponytail…….pulled back tight to a tail…….mostly loose with a little flip-up tail at upper back………loose and messy……for “dressie” straight with a little flip at the bottom or back with a braided tail – - – whatever you want that day, it’s really an expression of you and your mood.

      I live near the beach and some of the surfer guys (or posers) have it real long down their backs – like almost to waist – but don’t think I can get away with that. I go with short sideburns (actually undercut: lift up what’s really “hair” and shave all that’s sideburn): my deal is to look well-groomed, not that I just don’t bother to get my hair cut.

      Go for the look you like – just know how long it takes to grow back. There’s all kinds of styles now, and some of the EMO dudes have it pretty long but not too many with shoulder-length so it’s distinctive but if groomed you don’t look like a trog………..and they LOVE it in bed when you let it fall down, lol.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are good hairstyles for guys growing out hair (from a buzz cut) that doesn’t require cutting it again?
    So, I got a buzz cut about two months ago (because my room mate screwed up m hair) and I’ve already had to sit through the whole awkward puffball stages (thank God for hats!). Now my hair is about 2 1/2 inches (bordering 3 inches) and is starting to come down over my forehead. So I’m guessing it’s long enough to be styled.

    My goal is to grow my hair to 4 1/2 inches. But I’m having some BAD hair days in between and I just want it to get longer. Can anyone give me any style options that require little to no cutting of my hair (I can’t bear to shed an inch more) to stop me from looking like an idiot while growing it out?

    • ANSWER:
      There was no need to go through an “awkward puffball stage” while growing out a butch. If you had continued with short haircuts at frequent intervals, getting a slightly longer style each haircut and grooming the top with a control wax, your hair could have looked well groomed as it was growing out: short crew cut; medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. This is how guys used to grow out short buzzed styles back when every other college guy and college prep high school guys wore a crew, ivy or flat. While a butch suits relatively few guys, a good barber can design a short pomp(pompadour) style-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut), flat top crew cut- to fully suit most young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. By the time the hair is in a regular taper cut, the top hair would be about three inches and the back and sides could begin to grow over the collar and ears. Since your hair has grown 2.5- 3 inches in two months, it is growing much faster than the average rate of 1/2″ per month. Determine the style that you want and the lengths of hair in various parts of the head for that style. Then, you can go for a style that will not reduce the length of the hair in any area of the head to a point where it will not grow back to the required length for that area in the time it will take for the hair to reach the length required in the area of the head needing the most growth to achieve the required length. I cannot suggest an interim style since I do not know the desired final style. Maybe take a look at the medium and long galleries at the haircutsformen site for ideas. If you don’t want to cut the hair and just keep it under control, try krew comb (in the jar) or some control wax, but use it in extreme moderation. Krew comb is more of a hydrogenated wax and washes out readily. Actual waxes can build up and not wash out with normal shampooing. In that case: apply shampoo to dry hair and lather up; rinse hair; shampoo again as one normally does. In case you go for a butch in the future, knowledge of the basic short styles is helpful when trying to achieve a complementary style as it grows out……

      Some barbers describe an ivy league as a crew cut just long enough to be parted and combed to the side, if so desired. An ivy league can also be worn with the hair brushed up off the forehead to form a short pomp front, or with the short bangs brushed down on the forehead like a forward brush cut.

      Grooming any of the short pomp(pompadour) styles- crew cut, ivy league, flat top crew cut- is basically the same and takes about a minute or two.
      1) Towel dry hair.
      2) Barely dip fingertips in jar of wax.
      3)Transfer wax to palms.
      4) Smooth palms over hair.
      5)Brush hair off forehead to form short pomp front.
      Whichever style you decide on, be sure to take a photo to help describe the desired haircut to the barber. If you need more photos of any of the styles discussed above let me know.
      Good Luck!

  2. QUESTION:
    Growing my hair out from a buzz cut?
    I feel like my hair grew back way more sparsely and the buzz revealed a cowlick in my bangs. How should i get it trimmed or do something about it?

    • ANSWER:
      Try using gel or mouse on the hair to keep it in check. If you are trying to grow the hair out don’t get it trimmed more than every 2 months..if you use heating tool then every 6 weeks. Buzz cutting the hair will not make it more sparse or thicker. Cutting hair has nothing to do with what’s under the scalp. It just feels thinner because there is no regrowth of the hair. As far as the colick goes You just have to keep the hair a little longer there. The extra weight will help it not look as bad. Just be patient it will grow back soon!! Hope this helps you. Good Luck!!

  3. QUESTION:
    I am growing out my hair from a buzz cut, what’s the best way I go about doing it (eg should I trim the back)?
    I am looking for some tips. Should I trim the back or sides?

    • ANSWER:
      Go for a slightly longer style every three weeks: short crew cut; medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; long ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. At this point, there will be around three inches on top and if the desire is to let the hair grow over the ears and collar, let it begin to and switch to haircuts every six to nine weeks to even up new growth and add shape. After the hair is in a medium crew cut, the barber will mostly be trimming the back and sides and only evening up growth on top. The top can be kept looking well groomed as a crew cut or ivy league with a control wax. Might want to try krew comb (the one in the jar.) More of a hydrogenated wax. It does not build up and works well. Also, the average rate of hair growth is 1/8″ per week. The difference between a butch or brush cut(butch cut at #4 = 4/8″ or longer on top))and a short pomp(pompadour) style such as a crew cut or ivy league(long crew cut) is that the top is graduated longer to the front hairline to allow a short pomp front to readily form when the hair is brushed back off the forehead. While few guys fully suit a butch, a good barber can design a short pomp style to fully suit most young guy’s head shape, face and neck shape, frontal hairline and facial features. A short pomp style also takes much less wax to control than a butch or brush cut. That is why control wax was called butch wax back in the 50′s/’early 60′s even though very few guys past the age of twelve wore butches. Almost all who wore a short buzzed style wore a crew cut, flat top crew cut or ivy league, and almost all used butch. Butches were mostly home haircuts for pre teen boys.
      ‘Good Luck!

  4. QUESTION:
    How can I make my hair look decent while growing it out from a buzz cut?
    So I decided to buzzcut my hair this summer, and theres pros and cons of it, but it came down to me wanting to grow my hair back to my old hair (Somewhere around 3 inches I think) From what I know, an average person grows 1 inch of hair in 1 month, so that’ll take me 3 or more months for me to go back to the way it was.

    But, I’ve seen my hair when I let it grow a bit from the buzzcut, it looks weird(for lack of better word). How can I maybe style or do something with my hair to make it look less weird for 3 months? Maybe some sites with hairstyles would help.

    Btw, I’m asian, so I’m not really a fan of that typical spiking the hair up lol

    • ANSWER:
      Yeah, don’t spike it.
      I’d suggest just letting it grow out. I mean, most people I know don’t look too awkward growing out a buzz.

      The average rate of hair growth is 1/8″ per week. This is why clipper guards are denoted in eighths of an inch. Each full guard number is a week’s growth apart in regard to the amount of hair growth left on the scalp.

  8. QUESTION:
    How am I going to grow my hair back from a buzz-cut?
    Hello, I usually have what could be considered perfectly straight hair. My hair is never wavy or “out of proportion”. I got a buzz cut and now my hair is growing back so horribly that it angers me. I have all of these “choppy” looking layers and the back sticks up like crazy now! I hate it so much! Is this normal? Will my hair fall back flat again? Will the layers take forever to grow out? I want to grow my hair back long again and shaving it is not an option. Is there a haircut or something I can do to fix my problem? Gel has not been working for the record.

    Okay, here are some visual references:

    This is what my hair looked like before I cut it:

    (I am the guy with the red shirt holding the camera/phone.)

    This is my hair now:

    http://i565.photobucket.com/albums/ss97/sake365/Snapshot_20101023_2.jpg

    I really need help, this just angers me so much!

    • ANSWER:
      The way to grow out a butch and have the hair look well groomed the whole time it is growing out is to keep up with frequent haircuts, at least every three weeks. Here are a few facts you should know about hair. The average rate of growth is 1/8″ per week. This is why clipper guards are denoted in eighths of an inch. Each full guard number is a week’s growth apart.
      #1 guard leaves 1/8″ of hair on the scalp = one week’s growth
      #2 guard leaves 2/8″of hair on the scalp = two week’s growth
      #3 guard leaves 3/8″ of hair on the scalp = three week’s growth etc
      Even though the average rate of hair growth is 1/8″ per week, the average can vary. Every guy has individual hairs that are growing at rates much faster and slower than his average rate. Each hair grows for about four years to a terminal length, falls out and is replaced by a fresh new hair shaft. Young hairs tend to grow very fast and older hairs very slow. This is why a short style needs to be recut frequently or it will start to look shabby-a certain percentage of the hairs are growing slower or faster than the guy’s individual average rate. For guys who are thinning, the replacement hairs grow for a shorter period of time and the replacement hairs are less robust until they are fine nearly invisible vellus hairs. Even guys who are bald on top still have hair, it is just that all the hairs have been reduced to fine nearly invisible vellus hairs.
      Returning to the way to grow out a butch. As stated, the way is to go for a haircut at least every three weeks (for a guy whose hair grows at the average rate.) Each haircut will be a slightly longer short style: short crew cut, medium crew cut, short ivy league, ivy league, long ivy league, short regular taper cut, regular taper cut. At this point, if a guy wants his hair to grow over his ears and collar, he can let it start to do so and switch to haircuts to even up growth and add shape every six to nine weeks. While the hair is in a crew cut or ivy league, the hair on top can be controlled by using a control wax. I like krew comb. The one in the jar. Krew comb is available at some barber shops, some walgreens, many barber and beauty supply houses and all sally beauty supply shops which are located everywhere. Krew comb is more of a hydrogenated wax and it washed out readily and will not build up. Like all waxes when used in moderation, it does not form a stiff breakable hold like a gel and the hair can be tousled and then brushed back into place. If a regular wax is used and a wax build up occurs, the way to remove it is to apply shampoo to dry hair and lather up before getting in shower, rinse hair, and shampoo again as one normally does. For short styles like a butch , crew or ivy league, a regular comb will not work. Besides a control wax, one of the small, oval, flat plastic pocket brushes that one finger fits through and barber sell for about a dollar are essential. Barber supply houses and Sally also sell them. A boar’s bristle military brush is also helpful for use at home.

      If your hair grows at the average rate, it is going to take a while to grow your hair back and it will not shorten the time to get to the red shirt style by not going and getting a nice looking crew cut or ivy league now. Here is the reason why. The hair on top in the red shirt style is seven to eight inches long. The hair at the lower back and sides is four to five inches long. There is a three inch difference in length between the hair on top and on the lower back and sides. This means that you can cut the hair on the lower to mid back and sides as closely as a haircut requires and not affect the time to reach the length for the red shirt style, if you start to let the hair grow out on the back and sides once the hair on top is around three inches long in a regular taper cut style. And be realistic, at the average growth rate of 1/8″ per week it is going to take about a year to reach red shirt length from your present length. Another point to note is that you can fully suit the short pomp(pompadour) styles-crew cut, ivy league(long crew cut) flat top crew cut or a regular taper cut. Recognize that first impressions are powerful and can be difficult to overcome. For a young guy who fully suits a short style, he can let a clean cut prep style work for him creating a very favorable first impression, especially on adults, which can mean a lot for a high school guy, such as getting a preferred summer job, or for a good student as your writing indicates, it can mean a very favorable college interview. Not to mention that many of the most desirable girls prefer super clean cut preppy guys because the favorable first impression causes her parents to trust the guy and her judgment. A guy’s friends generally don’t care how he wears his hair as long as it is in a fairly regular guy’s style. And a short clean cut style makes a high school guy look more high school/college age than middle school/high school. This is a win-win situation. Anyway, don’t be angry, find a good barber and try and have a good time experimenting with short to medium styles as your hair grows out. If you need photos of the styles discussed above let me know.
      Good Luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    Calling all hair experts or people with hair experience! How do I grow my hair out from this?
    I got a buzz cut and my hair is growing back like absolute crap. I’ve mentioned this before in previous questions but the layers are growing out all wrong. Everything that I wish would not happen is happening. My hair is normally beautiful and perfectly straight. Now I got a buzz cut after having a nervous break down. My hair is growing back at a descent rate, (I’ll acknowledge that much), however it looks absolutely terrible. The front is kind of starting to fall flat while the back sticks straight up like a peacock’s tail. I tried to gel the back down, but it did not work at all. I want my hair to be straight again. I want the layers to look good again and not so “choppy”. How long do you suspect I will have to wait? My hair grows a little bit faster than the average rate of 0.5 inches per month, but even if it was to grow at that rate; how long would it take my hair to grow out before i could take a buzz cut with horrible layers to this haircut:

Layers means that the hair in a certain portion of the head is all cut the same length, so when the hair lies flat or hangs down the ends of the hair come to different points in space forming layers. A buzz cut is in effect perfectly layered and forms an almost infinite number of layers since all the hair is cut the same short length. If a buzz cut is not recut in a few weeks, then the hair will assume different lengths because individual strands of hair vary from the average rate usually according to age of the strand of hair. The buzz cut will no longer be perfectly layered and will start to look shabby. To go from your present length of bangs to the length of bangs in the photo, about five inches, is going to take about eight months at a growth rate of 1/2″ per month. The guy in the photo has fairly short hair on the sides as his entire ear is visible inside the hood of his sweatshirt. If you want your hair to look better go and get an ivy league. if the hair at the back of the crown wants to stick up, then don’t fight it. Get a short pomp style and wear the hair at the front brushed back off the forehead and up, and slightly to the side when it gets longer, forming a short pomp front until the hair at the back of the crown is long enough for the weight of the hair and gravity to make it lay down with the help of a little control wax. Up and back and slightly to the side. Suggest way less wax than this guy!

      In a few weeks your hair will be long enough for a very short regular taper cut like this….

      It will probably still need to be groomed with wax at this length and with your hair’s characteristics.

      There is nothing horrible about a clean cut young guy wearing a crew cut or ivy league, especially when he fully suits these prep styles. Wearing an outer costume that pleases adults in essence gives a guy a sense of power or control by being able to foster a very positive first impression of himself, whether true or not. In the photo with the long hair, your style indicates to conservative adults: disrespectful, punk kid, who needs a haircut. In the red polo shirt crew cut photo that was in an previous question, it indicates: intelligent, clean cut, respectful, young man, probably or soon to be an Eagle Scout.

    • ANSWER:
      Grow it out if you’re only worried about the weird stage. There will be an awkward stage for a few weeks inbetween, but you could always get extensions, a sew in, braids or even some really nice human hair wigs until it passes.

    Kicked out of the military for having a buzz cut?
    If a black woman has a buzzcut when she goes to basic (or gets a buzzcut after basic), what happens to her? Does she get kicked out? Do they make her grow her hair out?

    I’m talking an Alek Wek/Natalie Portman style cut.

    I know women aren’t supposed to have “faddish” hair, but what if It’s just easier to care for?(speaking from experience)

    • ANSWER:
      The Marine Corps has instated a rule that about females not having a man hair cut, it came about because of the women in Iraq shaving their heads, and it is not allowed anymore, I know that my daughter was told of the ruling, and told that she was not to do it, so take that for what it is worth, throw you out.? i dont think so , but you would get demoted, fined, and extra duty etc etc for doing it,

  16. QUESTION:
    Growing Hair out long- HELP?
    When I grow my hair out I like to start from short and let it grow out. I just go it cut a couple months ago but the lady who cut my hair (not my usual one I go to) didn’t do very well. My hair is decently long right now but I don’t like the way it turned out at all. I have straight hair with very few curls, and an annoying “cow lick” in the front. But what I really wanted to ask was what would be the best short hair cut to get so that it grows out and looks really good? I usually get Caesar cuts but I don’t really like the way it’s growing out this way anymore. If I don’t figure this out soon I’m just gonna let my cousin buzz it, which I really don’t want to have to do…. Any help and suggestions will be very much appreciated! Thanks!
    I’m a guy so please refrain from putting girl cuts >.>
    I would prefer a short punk type look too if anyone know any good ones :D

    • ANSWER:
      Its kind of hard to decide on a short hair cut that will look good as it grows out. I did the same thing for a while (cutting short then growing out long) and the best thing I found was something like a #7 on top (which is 7/8 of an inch) and #2 (which is 1/4 inch) on the back and sides. I usually would get it slightly trimmed about once a month as that made it look a little better while it was growing out. I don’t think there is a name for that cut, I had a friend cut it and its not that hard to do. I’d go with that if I were you. Good luck!

  17. QUESTION:
    How do I get long hair like Tom Cruise in the movie, “The Last Samurai”? I’m going from a buzzed cut to that.?
    I love the hair style he wears in in this movie as well as others like Mission Impossible 2, Vanilla Sky, etc. I buzzed my hair with a number 4 blade all over and I want that hair style like in the movie, “The Last Samurai”. I’m 33 years old and my hair is pretty thick and basically straight with a light wave kind of like his. What exactly do I need to do to achieve this look from a buzz haircut. So far it’s been 8 weeks from the buzz cut. Do I continue to let it grow for a year or longer without trimming? Do I keep the back trimmed straight across the bottom of my neck line every now and then till the top gets longer? This question is basically for professional hair stylist only or people that is growing it out like this from a buzzed haircut. I just need very specific instructions on how to do this until I get that exact style. Here is a picture of him in an article and this is the style that I want. Thanks.

  18. QUESTION:
    How to grow hair out as a guy?
    I’ve had a shaved head the past few years and never let my hair get long whatsoever. I finally want to try out and go for the “shaggy” look. I have a few questions..

    Since I’m starting from a buzz cut, will I need to go get it cut after a few months? Like the sides? Wont it be weird that my sides are just as long as the top when its about an inch or so long?

    • ANSWER:
      This is always a difficult transition even for women that are growing their hair out. Do your best to fight the urge to cut it off. The best thing to do is just let it grow. Since your hair does grow faster in the back, it will be your main concern when it comes to trims. Also, think about how when every hair on your head is the same length… In order to achieve a shaggy style you’re going to need a lot more length on top and sides than in the very back. Be sure you find a stylist that is very clear of your style goals and stick to just them. Seeing a different stylist during a style change could really cause some confusion and disappointment.

  19. QUESTION:
    How to get Tom Cruise’s hairstyle from “The Last Samurai” from a buzz cut?
    8 weeks ago I buzzed my hair with a number 4 guard all over and I’m wanting to grow my hair out just like he had it in that movie. This question is mainly for hair stylist or people that have gone for the same look from a buzzed haircut. Do I just let it grow for a couple years then get it trimmed? Do I trim my hair in a straight line across the bottom of my neck line every so often until I get more length on the top? I’m trying to get very detailed instructions on how to go about getting this look. I know I’ll be going through an awkward in between stage and that’s okay because I can where a hat on my job anyway to cover the mess. Just looking for the steps on doing this. If anyone knows of a website out there that gives detailed instructions on how men can do this please let me know. I’m 33 years old and I have thick brown hair that’s mainly straight with a little wave like what he has. Here is a picture of him and the hairstyle I’m wanting to achieve: http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,534442,00.html

    • ANSWER:
      The average rate of hair growth is 1/8″ per week, which is why clipper guards are denoted in eighths of an inch. Each full guard number is a week’s growth apart in terms of the amount of hair left on the scalp. A #4 guard is 4/8″ so if you have not cut your hair since eight weeks ago and measure it now, you can know your rate of hair growth and calculate how long it will take to get approximately nine inches of hair on top and around six inches on the lower back and sides. There is no need to go through any awkward stage to achieve his hairstyle. You can go and get an ivy league with the back and sides tapered as short as you wish right now and it will not affect how long it takes you to get to his style. Actually, will probably make it so you can get to his style, since you won’t tire of seeing your hair as an unkempt looking mess and just decide to buzz it all off. If I were to get #4 butch ct at #4 length on top today, here is how I would get to his style: I’d get a fresh haircut every three weeks till at a regular taper cut with around three inches on top.
      Jan 8: butch, 4/8″ on top, upper back/sides at 4/8″, mid/upper back/ sides at 3/8″ mid lower back/sides at 2/8″, #1.5 blade length at lower back/sides to the top of the ears, #000 at the edge of hair growth at the nape of the neck
      Jan 29: short crew cut, 7/8″ at front hairline, 3/8″ at back of crown, sides tapered to #1.5 blade at top of ears, edge at nape tapered to #000
      Feb 19: medium crew cut, 10/8″ at front hairline, 3/8″ at back of crown
      March 12: ivy league, 13/8″ at front hairline, 6/8″ at back of crown
      April 2: long ivy league, 16/8″ at front hairline, 9/8″ at back of crown
      April 23: short regular taper cut, 2 3/8″ at front, 12/8″ at back of crown
      May 14: regular taper cut, 2 3/4″ at front, 15/8″ at back of crown
      June 4: regular taper cut, 3 1/8″ at front, 2 1/4″ at back of crown
      June 25: regular taper cut, 3 1/2″ at front, 2 5/8″ at back of crown
      At this point, I would start to let the back and sides grow over the ears and collar and go for haircuts to even up and shape new growth every six to nine weeks. It really depends on the variation in rates of hair growth between younger and older hair shafts. Some guys have much more variation in rates of growth and need more frequent haircuts. I should have mentioned that individual hairs grow to a terminal length for about four years fall out and are replaced by a fresh hair. Young hairs can grow much faster than middle aged hairs and older hairs can grow more slowly. This is why guys with short styles need frequent haircuts to keep from looking unkempt. When guys are in a thinning pattern, the terminal lengths of the replacement shafts become shorter and shorter and the hairs thinner and thinners till they are fine, nearly invisible, vellus hairs.

  23. QUESTION:
    what kind of hair cut would suit me (pic)?
    ive grown my hair out for over a year, from a buzz cut i got in november. So its probably about time i get a haircut. i dont know what kind of hair cut to get, so thought id put a pick up and see what people thought would lookbest for me, since i dont know anything about hair cuts, styling, etc. One thing, is that when i get short cuts, my hair is straight so it sort of sticks up and i have this annoying cowlick, or maybe two in the front, so very short hair is difficult for me to pull off, anyway, heres a pic i took, let me know your thoughts.

    • ANSWER:
      I would do a short cut that you can use gel to spike up. You have a thin face so shorter hair is better, and the stick up look will cover the cowlick issue. Here is a great website with a ton of styles to give you other ideas as well http://www.hair-styles.org/ When you find a style you like try to get a picture of it printed out and take it in to he stylist when you go. This helps prevent miscommunication so you get the look you want.

      Your other option is to go to a stylist and tell them you are wanting something right for your face but want to be able to fix it easily with the cowlicks in mind, and have them pick something out on the spot for you.

    Advice for the awkward in between stage of growing out hair?
    Hey everyone.

    So I’m a 21 year old guy trying to grow out my hair, just shy of shoulder length. I’m starting from pretty much a buzz cut so its taking forever. I’ve hit the awkward stage, however, where its too long to do anything with and too short to look cool. I’ve heard some people say you should get your hair trimmed every couple of months when you’ve reached that stage and others say just live with it until it gets long enough. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? Here’s a picture of the length I’m currently rockin’.

    Screen shot 2010-05-06 at 1.58.43 AM

    • ANSWER:
      your hair looks really nice and i like how you styled it like that. but until it grows out to the length you want, you’ll just have to live with it. or you could get a really good holding gel and do some crazy spikes lol. i don’t know why people would tell you to trim it if you are trying to grow it out. that is only cutting the length off.

      so yeah. just live with it. or where a hat if you don’t like it at the moment. i think it looks very nice though.

      You put it in after you wash your hair and it keeps your hair from frizzing even in the rain and humidity.

    what can i do to stop my hair from breaking at the crown?
    i have african american type of hair im mixed so my hair is thick about 2 weeks ago i had my hair cut cause it was breaking off really bad at the crown i have dyed and relaxed my hair alot what can i do to help my hair get back to normal and stop breaking and also grow my goal is to grow my hair out to the middle of my back by december so what products can i use or what can i do to relmish my hair can i dont wanna buzz cut my hair.oh i straighten my hair also.an information would be helpful.

    • ANSWER:
      First, find out the reason WHY your hair is breaking at the crown.
      Breakage in the hair can be caused by:
      - Relaxing too close to the scalp/relaxing too much, causing chemical damage
      - Diet
      - Stress
      - Too much manipulation in that one area (brushing/combing that area a lot)
      - Genetics
      - Allergic reaction to hair care products.

      What can you do to help the breakage in that area?:
      - Use Aphogee 2 minute protein treatment. This stuff is KNOWN to stop breakage. I haven’t tried it yet, but I am on Wednesday because I have a few split ends.. People rave a lot about it.
      - Scalp Massages. Do them for about 10 minutes each day. On top of that, apply an essential oil which helps stimulate hair growth.
      - Eat better. Drink the recommended ammount of water, and eat lots of protein.
      - Stretch out your relaxers. Instead of every four weeks, try every 6-8 weeks. This REALLY is important.
      - Don’t apply too much straighteners to your hair. Don’t brush the area too much, especially if you’re trying to slick it back into a ponytail. Instead, trying adding an oil to slick it back.
      - Growth aids work.’

      Hope this helps!

  30. QUESTION:
    Way to “un-poof” the hair growing on the side of your head?
    I decided to let my hair grow out a bit before I get my next haircut. However since I am growing it from a buzz-cut, I am having a bit of trouble.

    I have no trouble keeping the hair growing on the top and back from being flat and tame, but the hair on the side seem to be expanding outward, and I can’t really keep it pointing downward (length is almost an inch now).

    I’ve tried wearing a beanie to sleep, and that helps with mornings, but after i take my shower it just points outward again. So i have to wear my beanie prior to going out just so I don’t have weird hair sitting on my head.

    Any suggestions? Or should I just wait more for more growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Try using a little mousse on the sides. I think your hair is just at an awkward length. Other than applying product to it, that’s about all you can do I’m afraid.

  31. QUESTION:
    Should I get a shorter buzz cut?
    I’m a guy, and I went from having shoulder-length hair to getting a half-inch buzz cut. (Guard #4) Now, it’s starting to grow out and getting annoying. Should I take my hair down shorter (if so, how short) or should I leave it alone to grow out?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want to grow your hair back, grow it. If you want to cut it, go ahead. #4 is the longest you should go for a Buzzcut. You should go shorter depending on the thickness and color or your hair. If you have thick dark hair I would buzz it down to a #2 that will feel really fuzzy and will have a nice crisp, clean-cut look.If your hair is thinner and lighter, go for a #3.

  33. QUESTION:
    I’m a 16 year old girl thinking of getting a buzz cut. Opinions?
    I always had short hair from when I was little to 12 years old(the same bowl-cut from the age of 2 to 8). No longer than ear length after that b/c that was my mother’s rule. My father even buzzed my hair one summer when I was 9 years old. I really liked it cropped so short. I let my hair grow out though when I was 13 and right now it’s about 4 inches past my shoulders. I’m kinda scared about people’s reactions though. But I will donate the hair to locks of love or something when I do cut it. I’m definitely cutting it to at least ear length because I can’t stand it long anymore. But maybe I’ll wait til summer to buzz it. IDK?!? Give me suggestions!

Your hair is made of keratin (protein), so eating a lot of protein helps. That’s really all you can do.

    HELP a guy out with his hair? PICS?!
    Well, I’m growing my hair out from a VERY short buzz cut. So far it’s been 3 months and my hair is 2 inches… it’s also very THICK and WAVY…

After a couple of months of growing my hair it started to get curly. about 6 months of growing my hair it started to fall down and started to make layers. It has been a year since my last hair cut and it is not showing length because it is bushy and curly. Why is my hair geting so curly as the length of my hair increases. i want to wear a ponytail but it is hard i started to gel my hair and put in a ponytail but it takes time. Without the gel it makes it hard to put my hair in a n nice ponytail. Should i straigten my hair. I want wavy hair with out curls and my hair becoming bushy it is not showing true length. Please give my suggestions on what should i do with my hair?? I am not cuting it i love long hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, before you take a shower everyday, brush your hair until tangle-free. Then wash it real good with either Tresseme or Aussie shampoo, and conditioner. After you dry yourself, brush your still wet hair. until straight. Then dry, brush again. Then put it into a ponytail, if that’s possible. If not, sorry dude. Hope I could help.

    Boyfriend cut his hair! AGAIN! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
    So I have had this boyfriend for almost 7 months. From December-August(I have only been with him since May) he had long hair, like almost touching his shoulders and it was really thick. Then at the beginning of September he cut it really short, almost a buzz cut. It has been starting to grow out, like bangs covering eyes and it was covering his ears and almost long again! But then on Tuesday he got it cut again. Not as short as it was but his bangs are regular length and his hair touches the top of his ears. And it doesn’t stick out in the back like it used to. Do you think he will grow it out again??? He plays soccer, basketball, and baseball. Last year he played all of those with long hair. How can I get him to grow it out!!!!!!!!!

  44. QUESTION:
    hair loss/thinning..PLEASE HELP?
    I hate resulting to help for something along these lines. I am 20 and am experiencing major hair thinning/hair falling out. My hair is growing back from a buzz cut (I have been buzzing it since September because of this current problem), and I am letting it grow to see how it grows in. Apparently, it is not growing in as well as planned. The hair in the front of my head growing is growing in thin, as the temple hair is growing in even thinner/none at all

    Attached are a few pictures. I have Nioxin System 1 for thinning hair (shampoo and conditioner) (http://www.amazon.com/Nioxin-System-Cleanser-Therapy-33-8oz/dp/B000ZICQ36) and am looking to buy (http://www.gnc.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2986023) to promote healthy hair growth to try to regrow these thinning hairs. The hairs are thin and growing in, but as they grow in they are not growing in fully and it seems that all the hair that is not surrounding my temples grows in faster and more thick than the hair around my temple. Please suggest anything I should use, do, anything. I really really appreciate it, I want to try and get this under control before it gets too late… Also, I was wondering…should I buzz my hair AGAIN and continue using the Nioxin and Biotin so that it all grows in with new follicles? That is the most important question I have..thanks so much.. Please help.

  45. QUESTION:
    How do i stop my dad from buzzing my hair off?
    Long story short, Im 13, and me and i have been forced to have my skater hair buzzed off because my little bro wanted his buzzed. How do i convince my to let me grow it out again and not make me keep getting it buzzed? He says that he is going to keep buzzing it until im 18 or my bro wants long hair again (which wont happen) Here is a pic of me before the buzz cut. http://www.flickr.com/photos/51769262@N03/4765421951/ As you can see, my hair is always neat, trimmed, and kept out of my face. How do i convince him to let me grow it back?
    talking doesnt seem to help eigther, And my mom doesnt like boys having long hair.
    So many people comment on my long hair though. And my dad says hes saving money by giving us buzzcuts at home.
    the pic is BEFORE he buzzed my hair today. Now my hair is WICKED short.

    • ANSWER:
      Looking at your online photo, I think it’s a little long already – needs to be cut. How come he let it grow as long as it is now?

      But if you want to not get buzzed, approach your dad maturely, telling him all kinds of ways that you respect him and his ideas. You could tell him you know he wants you to be responsible and make decisions appropriate for 13 year olds, and this is one that is important to you. Just plant a seed for him to think about it. Above all, don’t argue or get angry, defensive, etc. That just makes dads dig in their heels to show they’re in charge.

      You could also use humor if he has a sense of humor. Like tell him you’ll do all kinds of chores for him or your mom if you can have your way in not getting buzzed.

  47. QUESTION:
    Any Hair Product That Is Designed To Keep The Hair Spiked Up Over A Period of Time? Details Inside?
    I am 19 years old and have always had a buzzed hair cut.

    So, I didn’t really have much hair to work with but I decided to go for a different look. I have grown my hair out for a couple weeks now and it is getting longer than I usually have it. But it is still short. Well, anyway… when I first get out of the shower when my hair is wet, you can move your fingers through it and it can spike up what it has. After a period of time and once it drys, it just goes down and looks frizzy. I can’t really describe it because I don’t know all these beauty terms haha. But I would like to know if there are any products out there that you can put on your hair and have it keep it’s look from when you get out of the shower.

    Like I said, once I’m out of the shower and my hair is still wet, it’ll stay up. But once it drys, it goes back down and looks flat.

    That’s my question… hope someone can help me out. Not looking for something too crazy or way expensive… but something I can keep have to keep it up. If you can provide an answer, please say what the product name is and where I could buy it and whatnot. Thanks a lot. Hope to hear answers shortly!

      You need styling paste – try L’oreal Studio Remix remouldable, its supposed to be quite good. If you want a “wet look” don’t go for a matte one.

  48. QUESTION:
    Girls do you like guys who buzz their hair?
    I do have medium hair at the moment and since it’s summer I’m thinking about cutting it short, although I think I look better with longer shaggier hair. It’s tough because I want to cut it lol but yet I want it to grow out more. I can’t decide. And if I get it cut my hair can grow back to my natural color. I think I’m done dying my hair for awhile. I always end up dying really dark but it seems like I get more looks from women when I have lighter hair, probably because it’s natural and it brings out my eyes more.

    Okay thanks for the answers.

    • ANSWER:
      I love buzz cuts as long as they aren’t like… bald. Like they cut it to like 1/6 of an inch and then it grows out from there. They look so sexy!!! And the guys always look a lot older too.

  49. QUESTION:
    Odd shaped head, hair question..?
    So I think I have an odd shaped, large, obtuse head. Right now my hair is growing out of a buzz (3/8 inch cut 6 weeks ago) and at the moment my hair all around stands virtually straight up **except** for the hair from my neckline to the top of my head, which is normal and runs nice and close to my skin. I looked in the mirror today and my hair looked awful!! Up top was sticking straight up, sides sticking out, but then running down the back of my head it was just straight down, so it looked like a major dropoff.

    So heres the question-Will my hair ever grow where it will lay flat all the way around? Will the hair ever sit as close to the scalp like a buzz cut does? Should I just buzz my hair back off and get it buzzed every 2 weeks to keep it short and not sticking straight up, which I think makes me look older and just better, it extenuated my chest and shoulders, or should I try and get through this awkward phase and grow it out? What should I do!! I feel like right now it has no style, its jsut a big puff ball except for the back. Thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair may or may not lay as flat or sit as close to the scalp. It depends on the texture, density, waviness etc of your hair. Relatively few guys fully suit a style where the hair perfectly conforms to the skull shape. You can get your hair cut every two weeks, no problem with that….

      http://i51.tinypic.com/icsmth.jpg

      http://i53.tinypic.com/2ewp9w0.jpg

      …there is also no problem with hair that wants to stand up. The issue is not the hair sticking up. The issue is when the hair that is sticking up is not clipper sculpted to produce a complementary appearance of the skull shape. Specifically, hair that is sticking up the same amount all over the top of the head instead of being graduated shorter in length to the back of the crown to counter the downward slope of the skull to the front hairline will in general impart an appearance of a skull shape that does not fully suit most guys. This is why the hair graduates shorter to the back of the crown with the short pomp styles. The basic idea with guy’s short styles is to maximize and minimize the volume of hair in various areas of the head to create the illusion of a perfect oval face shape with a more boxy masculine than feminine rounded skull shape. A ridge of hair down the center of the top of the head does not achieve either of these goals with almost any possible combination of male face and skull shape. Read the long answer I gave to a similar question that you asked two weeks after you had your head buzzed. If you open all the links at that answer, you will have a much better understanding of the variety of short buzzed styles. Going for a medium crew cut or short ivy league now will not affect the length of time that it takes to grow out your hair. At three week intervals: medium crew cut; short ivy league; ivy league; short regular taper cut; regular taper cut. With an ivy league, the hair will usually stay down with an application of a minute amount of krew comb or some other control wax as described in the answer from two weeks after you buzzed your head. Krew comb is available at some drug stores, many barber shops and barber supply houses and all sally beauty supply stores which are located everywhere.
      Good Luck!

    I have coarse very thick hair that has just recently grown out from a buzz cut
    My hair in the front comes half way down my forehead.

    please dont say just grow it out cause everytime i do it just gets poofy and gross
    I thin it out every month

    • ANSWER:
      Since everyone’s hair is different, your best bet is to take that picture to a stylist and get a consultation. Ask around to find a good stylist or salon. Many upscale salons will give you a free consultation. She/he may think you just need a haircut (into layers, and parted like the picture), or you may have to blow dry your hair to get it to look like that. Just make sure you bring in the picture.

      Also, that guy’s hair looks really good!!! Good luck!


Growing Hair Out For Guys

That’s right, if anyone tells you that you can grow taller more than 12 inches in a ridiculously short period of time – they must have super human powers! Sure, you can use growth hormones and other artificial products, but are they guaranteed to work? (and even if they do – what are the side effects?)

Well let me tell you something I tried. I was 5’5a at the age of 32 – I wanted to grow taller, but I wanted to grow taller naturally. My height wasn’t bothering me too much, but I knew I had missed out on quite a few opportunities in my life as a result.

I searched high and low to see if there was anything I could do to increase my height, but remember I wanted to do this naturally (I hate using artificial products!). I came across an article about a guy who took part in a diet programme called Grow Taller for Idiots and read this interesting fact which I want to share with everyone. The condition of our spine will affect our height (as much as 2 – 6 inches) which is around 35% of our total height. More than 98% of people will suffer from over compression of the spine (this is as a result of a mixture of environmental and genetic reasons).

Grow Taller 4 Idiots provided me with an exercise and diet plan to help correct this condition and get rid of my excess curvatures in the spine. I took part in this diet plan and it was amazing – I grew TWO FULL INCHES (and a bit) in less than 7 weeks, I feel so much more comfortable with my height now.

I would definitely HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product to anyone who feels uncomfortable about their height and wants to grow taller. Do this before taking any miracle growth pills of other growth products. It is guaranteed to work!

Growing Hair Out Black Men

There are a wide variety of common causes for hair loss in black men. Educating yourself about these different causes can allow black men to avoid them. This list of causes includes genetic factors, overprocessing with chemicals, certain hairstyles, and poor diet. Certain thyroid conditions and medications can also cause it.

For example, if a black man wears hairstyles that involve tight braids or extensions, these hairstyles can put undue pressure upon the scalp, which can cause Traction Alopecia. He should consult his hair stylist to ascertain how certain hair styles might affect his hair loss.

Also other common causes in black men include poor diet and clogged hair follicles. Because hair is composed primarily of protein, a poor diet that does not include enough protein, minerals, and vitamins can contribute to hair loss.

Additionally, clogged follicles can contribute to hair loss when greasy hair products and heavy conditioners are over applied to one’s hair. If a man learns how to achieve a balance in his diet and the hair products that he uses, he can learn how to prevent this. If a thyroid condition or medication causes balding, medical treatment will be necessary. Under no circumstances should an individual cease taking their medication unless ordered to do so by a doctor.

If the balding is due to hereditary factors, then there are other methods of treatment. For example, topical solutions, such as Procerin or Provillus, can be used to promote the growth of new hair. Similarly, hair transplants can also work well for African American men. Many African American individuals prefer to use natural remedies. However, a gentleman should confer with his dermatologist to determine which natural remedies are most effective and what the potential side effects of each treatment might be. The common causes of hair loss in black men are treatable when an individual finds the right remedy for himself.

    I’m wanting to get the natural curls instead of the texturizer. I have a good grade of hair anyways. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Curl activator / curl spray! I know you are laughing. Even though you don’t have a curl, it will make your hair soft, shiny, and wet-looking. At night take a little activator and rub it on your natural hair, and then spray your head with the curl spray and sleep in a plastic bag. Your hair will look nice once you pick it in the morning. It’s worth a shot!

    Will the Curly perm for Black Men do a lot of damage to my hair?
    Hi I have been growing my hair out for about 3 months now and I’ve been thinking about getting the perm for black men that makes your hair look curly but I just want to get it once and never perm it again. Will this do alot of damage to it??? because I want my hair to grow out as long as possible.

    • ANSWER:
      you mean a texturizer, as long as you keep your hair moisturized it will be okay. When you hair begins to grow out you will begin to see a difference in the texture, your natural kinky texture and the curly texturized texture. You will have to re-apply the texturizer every few months or so so the textures will match.

  7. QUESTION:
    Growing hair for a black man?
    I’ve had long hair when I was young and again when I was in High School. Between those times I had my hair cut short into 360 waves. I can’t stick with one thing for long so I decided to grow it out again. I need some products (leaning towards natural-store-bought-products) that will make my hair softer so I can ease through the rough afro look. My hair is naturally a bit soft but since i moved to Texas my hair has gotten drier. What moisturizers should I use? Any other tips like conditioning, drying?
    for lily.

    there is nothing wrong with trying to keep up appearance. and since i know what my hair is like as it grows im trying to change it.

    • ANSWER:
      I sometimes use Shea butter and this give my hair moisture. Never try to comb afro hair while dry, only detangle it while wet and with conditioner in it. The conditioner will make it easier to comb through. Also, don’t comb your hair while it’s drying or dry unless you want an afro, because doing so makes your hair very frizzy. Carol’s Daughter is good, I’ve heard. It’s on my to-buy list, so I haven’t tried it yet. Raw cocoa butter also makes my hair soft. The only thing about shea and cocoa butters is that they cause a lot of build-up. If you’re okay with the build-up then I recommend them, but I don’t use them much because I don’t like my hair with a lot of build-up that makes it feel dirty and heavy.

      Since your hair is dry do deep conditioning treatments once a week to help retain moisture. Buy a deep conditioner and leave it in for about an hour or so.

      As far as getting hair soft, it depends on the products you use. I use a cleansing conditioner called Wen and this makes my hair super soft. It’s expensive but is well worth it if you can afford it.

      Towels cause frizz so I don’t use them anymore. Since my hair is still relatively short (6 inches) I wring out as much water as I can and then go outside and shake out the rest and let it air dry after moisturizing. If you want to use a towel then buy a microfiber towel because this is better for curly hair and doesn’t cause frizz.

      If you want to define your natural curls (assuming you don’t have the z-pattern, no curl hair type) then buy hair products that are anti-frizz. Wen is great for significantly reducing frizz.

      I use natural and organic products too, and I buy them from health foods stores. But, I also use other non-organic natural products, too. Raw shea butter can make your hair soft, as can mango butter. I use Giovanni Direct leave-in and this is somewhat soft on my hair. But nothing makes it as soft as Wen and mango butter.

    like black men? You know how black men can shave their hair and then maybe in 5 months their hair grows out really really fast and thick. And all they do is comb it and grease and keep it braided. So how come when black women do the same..our hair doesn’t grow as fast or as thick?

    Because I’m tired of wearing weave. I just wanna grow my hair out, really thick and full. And if that means…no perms for the next 6 months…then so be it. I can deal with that.

    • ANSWER:

  11. QUESTION:
    Do you think black men have sexy hair? I do. Why don’t they grow it out?

    I think black men are good looking, and would look even sexier if they grow their hair. Why do many of them shave their heads?

    • ANSWER:
      It’s traditional for black men to wear shaved hair styles, it’s been in our various cultures for thousands of years. However, I have been seeing my black men with dreadlocks (traditional) and mohawks (modern) lately and been asking on yahoo answers how to grow their hair out.

      My math professor had waist length locks. lolz.

      However, the shaved head still reigns. Maybe not for long from what I’m seeing.

      Hoped that helped! ♥

  12. QUESTION:
    black men hair questions?
    I am a african american male with native american ancestors.I have grown my hair out to to about 3 inches now and My family is telling me to get a haircut but I don’t want to shave all of my hair off. They say me having long hair is making me look bad and not get an respect. Before when I was cutting my hair I got no respect anyway so there is no changing that. People usually regard me as a nice person and never think I’m stealing anything.I’m actually want to straighten it and get a rocker type style.

    What is considered clean cut for a black man? and do employers care how your hair looks nowadays? what do you think of a black man with a hairstyle that isn’t the norm for his race? and what do women think about a black man’s hairstyle what do they see as an attractive look?

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve seen a black dude with straightened hair, but his was like all the way down his back. And he had a lot of friends and stuff. I don’t know though! everyone has different preferences! it’s up to you though. It’s better to like yourself for YOU than what someone else wants you to be.

  13. QUESTION:
    Has any other young black men been harrased by their mom to get a haircut?
    Has any other young black men been harrased by their mom to get a haircut?
    Are you a young adult male and have been harrased by your mom to get a haircut?
    I am a 22 year old black male.

    I wear my hair in a short afro and it looks very neat when i comb it.

    However everytime my hair grows into a short afro my mom wants me to cut my hair.

    Why are african american people so against young black guys like me wearing an afro and want us to get our hair cut down very low so it wont be in an afro?

    My mom is getting on my last nerves, my mom need to stop telling me what to do with my hair im 22 years old not 12 years old.

    Im a grown man and I dont need mom telling me what to do with my hair or my life. If my mom dont like my hair and my hairstyle that’s her problem because I am not going to get a low haircut or a clean haircut and shave off my facial haqir to please her.

    I cant understand why older black women like my mom has such a problem with young men like me wearing a full head of hair and facial hair.

    I have to live with my mom because I cant find a job. I fill out applications and turn them in and never get called in for an interview at all the places I apply at.

    I also forget to mention that many African american people also have a problem with young black guys like me wearing braids or dreadlocks.

    What i have noticed is that many African american woman refuse to wear natural Afrocentric hairstyles and will get a perm or press their hair to get a Eurocentric hairstyle, and they dont want their black men like their sons to wear Afrocentric hairstyles like an afro, braids or dreadlocks, and instead many black women want their sons to wear low haircuts or bald haircuts even when their son is grown.

    Some black men have a problem with other black men wearing afrocentric hairstyles like afros , braids and dreads.

    The equation is if you a black man and you dont have good straight hair you need to cut it all off and wear a very low haircut or a bald head.
    I am also in college majoring in Computer information systems.

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a black girl not guy, but i can relate. I’m 18 and my mom has been harrasing me to get a perm. I’m wearing my hair natural in curls (all blacks have tightly curled hair). And she likes it straight. Idk what i want lol.

  14. QUESTION:
    Black women, why don’t you wear your natural/unprocessed hair?

  15. QUESTION:
    To all my black sistas and bi-racial sistas who relax their hair.?
    Why do black women feel the need to adopt the euro-centric look and straighten their hair? Do you feel you are naturally ugly with your natural hair? Black women feel the need to relax their hair and make it look more like white women why? That is like telling God he messed up when creating you. Is it the medias fault for showing the beyonces, ashantis, gabrielle unions and ciaras (who all wear weaves )and so fourth and so on? There are so many beautiful black women with their natural hair its not even funny. Take a look at a picture of Corrine Bailey Ray and tell me she is not beautiful with her natural hair? Look at Erykah Badu and Jill scott. Those women are beautiful with their natural hair. There are more women that have relaxers and short hair than there are that have relaxers with long hair. Dont you find that strange? The main straightening chemical found in relaxers and perms is sodium chloride bicarbonate which in its raw form can dissolve metal and thats what black women put in their hair to look like white women and when their hair is short they cant figure out why. Why do black women hate their natural hair so much, and when it breaks off due to improper care, they are stuck putting in weaves and weaving up their hair for the rest of their live. You can have natural hair and it look pretty, it doesnt always have to come down to wearing that 1970s afro. There are other styles. Black women are so hung up on relaxing and making their hair straight as if all men only appreciate straight hair. Well I got news for you sistas out there, your hair grows better in its natural state and usually tends to grow verly long just like mine. I have 27 inches of hair on my head in its natural curly form and you know what I noticed? When I am in the company of black men, they dont say eww your hair is curly and not straight, they say oh my goodness girl, can I touch it? Can I feel it? Can I hold it? Can I smell it? I asked them why do they act like it is gold when they see it and they say its rare you see a black women with her own long hair that is not a weave. funny thing is, I get more compliments from white men with my hair in its natural form than I ever did when it was relaxed and straight. Yes I said it, once upon a time I use to relax my hair, but I got sick and tired of all the breakage and my hair not growing pass my neck so I cut off all the relaxed hair and started from scratch with a whole new head of virgin hair. That was back in 2007, the reason for me relaxing my hair because thats what I saw on TV, Tyra Banks and every body else so I thought straight was pretty than I opened up my eyes one day and realized this is how God made so screw everyone else so I chopped off all my hair and been natural everysince. I have received more compliments with my natural hair from black men to white men, asian men and latino men than I ever did with my relaxed straight hair. Dont let it fool you men love black women with their natural hair. So black women my question is why do you feel the need to relax and why do you think you yourself in natural form is ugly with natural hair? To hate your hair is to hate yourself.
    come on lets get it right people, i never once said you should be like me, if you read my statement it is about why you freaking do it, hello? its a question of why do you do it, not a statement of you should do what id od or be like me cause you couldn’t on your best day.

    • ANSWER:
      People are misinformed about natural hair. They have memories of their parents dry combing it and yanking through it with the only lubricant as grease..
      Then, the only styles people know of are braids, twists, and an afro unless you have “good hair” then, of course you magically do something to your hair to make it curly (uh.. a wash and go)

      It’s okay.. people are slowly getting educated. The word is getting out there on how to properly care for natural hair. Soon everyone will see the beauty of it. You’ll notice that more and more natural heads are showing up on tv. A few years ago everyone had straight hair. It’s coming. It’s just going to take some time.

      And a lot of ladies are afraid of cutting their hair because they think it won’t grow back. Since before they had used chemicals and flat ironed their hair so often it was breaking at the same pace that it was growing but, when your hair is not being damaged it grows just as fast as white people’s!

      Then, there’s the myth that you HAVE to big chop and shave your head and go bald. I know a lady that keeps shaving her head because her hair dresser told her that’s the only way.. hairdressers are misinformed, people in the black community are misinformed… nobody knows the truth. It’s sad really.

      A lot of people think relaxed hair is “easier to manage” but, in reality it’s not if you know what you are doing. With my relaxed hair I spent so long and so much money on getting my hair to lay straight, not to mention all that damage.
      But, with natural hair you just rinse, apply conditioner, apply gel.. done!
      Unless, I want a style (such as a braid out or pin curls). Then, I just do that style at night… wake up.. undo it. Done!
      I no longer have to fry my hair straight. I only detangle it once a week now opposed to daily and I don’t have to worry about rain or getting my hair wet at all!

      I guess it really depends on your lifestyle but, I think if anything heat train.. it’s WAY less damaging to relaxers still.

  16. QUESTION:
    Why do “Some” black men look down on black women who wear hair weaves?
    A little background: I am a 25 year old black woman who LOVES to style and change up her hair. My natural hair, without added hair is to the bottom of my neck, and is a natural sandy brown color. Every since I was a child, I have love to do my hair in various ways. And yes, I got a relaxer when I was about 9 or 10. Well, I have grown my hair out to almost my shoulders, have shaved it completely off, have had every kind of full-weave, braids and extension and have dyed it from jet black to blond…and suprisingly it is still growing, healthy and strong. My question is—why do “SOME” black men treat black women who wear weaves like we’re trying to “hide” something or we’re ashamed of our natural hair or that we want to be white women, when white women wear extensions/add-ons too! And what is the kicker is, most black men won’t give you a second look the more “natural” your hair sometimes is, yet will break their necks if you have a Hawain silky weave down to your butt. What gives?!

    • ANSWER:
      i am puerto rican, i love black women, my wife is black. i do not mind weave, sometimes, not all the time. all the black women i have dated have had long hair. i like natural hair, nothing wrong with weave if is looks good. some weave is horrible and you and i both know that. my wife is black and puerto rican, so her hair is long, curly, or wavy. some men are just plan of stupid.

  18. QUESTION:
    How do I grow my hair out?
    I have always had lowcut hair. I want to get some longer hair so that I can experiment with different styles. Hairstyles for black men with long hair is greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with redlever on the most part, but the problem is you have to start from the inside out. Beauticians won’t tell you this. I had to learn the hard way. Especially for black people, whether male or female, iron is a big part of hair and nail upkeep. My hair started to fall out when I was getting my first degree-to the point that I thought something was seriously wrong with me. Then once I stopped stressing, my hair stopped falling out, but it wouldn’t grow. My mother told me when she trimmed my split ends, “you better start getting some greens in you, or your hair will continue to fall out and it won’t grow.” I took her advice and started eating more green vegetables, which I love my greens anyway, and then finally when I wasn’t able to get greens, I put myself on an iron supplement. My hair is now down my back.

      I do braid it. I don’t believe in straightening my hair, it will be natural for eternity. But keeping it moisturized is a huge deal as well. And yes, dreads look great, sexy on black men. Two Words-Makai Pheifer.

  20. QUESTION:
    How to straighten hair (as a black man)?
    Last time I asked a question about getting dreadlocks. I decided that I don’t want them anymore, and want my hair to be straightened instead. I’m actually growing my hair out (into an afro) and after that I want to get it relaxed.

    When it is fully grown and straightened, I want a hairstyle similar to WWE superstar John Morrison:

    How long do you think it will take, and how do I go about getting this style?
    I have curly/kinky hair.
    & also my hair is very short now, it’s a small afro.

    • ANSWER:
      you would have to get it relaxed and then straightened. i suggest that you get your hairdresser to do this first, then you can subsequently maintain it yourself. just comb through your hair and follow the comb down your hair with the flat iron. remember to do it relatively quickly and do it several times to each section of hair. when you go slowly you end up with unnatural looking ripples in the hair. as for the length, i would guess that it is about 8 inches long all the way around. hair grows half an inch per month so you would be able to do the math as to how long it should take to grow.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is there any Product out there for Men’s Facial Hair to soften the hair that is growing in ?
    My sweetie gets very bad bumps after he shaves right now he uses the black magic hair remover and it works (but is stinks up the whole house) pee peu but when the new hair r coming out it makes those white pimples and looks nasty from the ruff, thick hair that is coming next. Is there a product out there that i can buy that will make the HAIR SOFTER so that it will NOT make those BUMPS. HELP ME!!!

    • ANSWER:
      The bumps are probably ingrown hairs: avoid them by using a gentle facial scrub daily or every other day. You can try hair minimizing creme for women, but made for the face. I think Avon carries some: it promises fewer and thinner hair in two weeks.

  23. QUESTION:
    Why some Black men so stuck on girls with long and straight hair?
    Some of my brothers make me mad. I love them to death but sometimes they make me mad. I used to have long waist lenght hair and it was straight. I cut it because i wanted to grow a natural fro and my hair was badly damaged from my Relaxers. Before I cut my hair I got so much attention from men. Black men in general would always compliment my hair. But after i cut it they were critizing it and they were saying stuff like ” you look like african” or “why don’t you grow you hair out, nappy hair is ugly” or “you used to be really sexy with your hair”

    • ANSWER:
      Well it is good that they make these comments……Cause now you know who to avoid. It’s those mental slaves. Don’t let their ignorance rub off on you. I am going natural too, and when I cut it off I’m gonna be 200% proud of my hair.

      You don’t have to take that. Come up with something to say back.

      heres what i would say:

      “you look like african”——thank you *smile*, so do you…

      “why don’t you grow you hair out, nappy hair is ugly”—–i am growing my hair out retard! and nappy hair is beautiful, my anscestors rocked it, and imma keep it going.

      “you used to be really sexy with your hair”——-boy please! I still am….I’m bringing sexyback to the max.Don’t knock me cause you not me

  26. QUESTION:
    Why do people assume black people’s hair can’t grow long?
    i used to have super long hair when i was little. it was difficult to do with a perm, and really expensive, some of it was breaking, and other pieces i pulled out. i didn’t care back then, now it is growing back, but yeah well afro curly hair, has a lot of shrinkage. so it takes more time to show length unless i press it straight. why do people assume once someone cuts their hair it can’t grow back, or that black people can’t have long hair. i rarely see a real black woman with long straight hair, but i have seen a lot of black men and women with long afros and dreads, i guess its because they aren’t using chemicals. it isn’t that black people are genetically inferior that our hair can’t grow. its the media that is doing this right. i mean its the pressure to chemically process our hair, right? why do people assume black people’s hair can’t grow long, or long hair that a black person has is a weave, its dumb. black people can grow long hair, even if it takes time. our hair an grow.

    • ANSWER:
      Do they assume that?? No-one remember Bob Marley any more?

    • ANSWER:
      well to be honest with you, you will get different responses from different black men. either they love it or hate it but that shouldn’t discourage you from going natural if you really want to. there are tons of benefits to going natural. More versatility in styling, healthier hair, spending less money at hair salons, doing fun activities without worrying about your hair do, only to name a few.

    • ANSWER:
      Some guys like Afro-centric hair, others don’t. I’d say go with your tastes, and find a man that likes them as well. You wouldn’t shave your head if the specific white man you plan on dating liked it as such, now would you?

  33. QUESTION:
    Can black people naturally have wavy hair (type 2) or slightly curly hair (type 3a)?
    ….as opposed to the common type 3c or 4 kinky hair?

    So I just found out about this curly hair type (type 2, 3, 3c, 4 etc) recently. I understand that the majority of black people usually grow a type 3c or 4 kinky hair. I once asked in Y/A if a black person can grow a naturally straight hair and from the majority answers I received, seems like people tend to think that NO 100% pure black man/woman can ever grow a straight hair like Asian’s or European’s.

    However I realize that black people hair is versatile and may come in various textures/shapes/shades/style, the same way a white person’s or Asian’s hair can also come in various textures/shapes/shades/style. So despite the improbability of growing a natural bone-straight hair like an European/Asian, I’m still curious to know if a black person or a person of African descent can grow a naturally wavy or slightly curly hair (type 2 or 3a) as opposed to the more common 3c or 4 type? Not that there’s anything wrong with type 3c or 4 kinky hair. I believe any hair can be beautiful no matter the texture and color as long as it’s healthy and well-taken care of. I’m just asking this out of curiosity, that’s all.

    Btw I’m asking about 100% full black African people, of course, and not mixed race/biracial.

    Thank you in advance.
    Oh okay, so as long as it’s NOT bone straight (either little wavy, slightly curly, very curly, kinky etc), then black people can grow it naturally too?
    Okay, I just found this pic to help with my illustration: http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/413059/413059,1286669601,1/stock-vector-vector-illustration-of-a-hair-types-chart-displaying-all-types-and-labeled-62656594.jpg

    Looking at those hair strand pics, do you think the 2a-3a can occur naturally on a black person? From the answers so far, seems like YES it can.
    @Angie : I appreciate your answer very much. But if you read my question carefully, I’m specifically asking about 100% full black Africans and NOT biracial/mixed-race people.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with being biracial/mixed-race, however I understand they can look like anything from bone straight to super kinky hair because they also have some non-black genes in their blood.

    But I wonder if any pure black people without obvious trace of non-black ancestry in them (yes I know that the majority of African Americans have a trace of non-black ancestry in them as well, but that’s not what I mean; well you get my point) are also capable of having natural straight/wavy/slightly curly hair (type 2a-3a or even type 1 if it’s possible) as opposed to the common very curly/kinky hair.

    • ANSWER:
      yes

      In africa there are blacks with wavy type hair. We vary.

    I know it is normal to have a couple of black hairs on your breasts around your nipples. But i have about 4-5 hairs that keep growing back. I have only had this problem for about a 1/2 year. I am 20 years old could it just be a stage i am going through in my life? I am not on any pills so it cant me medication…..Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Quite normal. It’s a hormone thing. Sometimes a doctor can help but not always. Its called hirsutism. It’s extremely common in a condition called polycystic ovarian syndrome, but can happen for other reasons as well.

  35. QUESTION:
    Im am black man,how do I take the waves out my hair?
    I dont want them cause they mess up my hair when it grows.

    • ANSWER:
      You can’t change the way your hair naturally grows. Your hair is wavy when cut short and you can’t change it from growing that way. You can get a chemical relaxer to straighten your hair, but the harsh, burning chemicals and upkeep, not to mention costs involved, are probably not worth it.

  36. QUESTION:
    what are some hairstyles for black men that are instyle?
    i dont want to shave my head bald like most black men, it makes me mad that i cant style my hair!!!! should i grow my hair out and style it with gel? i dont know what to do helppp!!

    • ANSWER:
      Yea, not to many options for us. I get my hair twisted. It’s still short, but when I started growing my hair, I had the idea that I was gonna straighten it. I don’t know if I’ll do that anymore, but for now I’m just getting twists and letting it grow.

      I wish I could offer you some good suggestions.

    Hair Of A Frustrated Black MAN!?
    Greetings Y!’S Answer Family.

    This Question is predominately for the brothers “BUT” replys are all welcome, please!

    1st I’m tiring to grow my hair long enough to get this particular style displayed by Q-Tip here

    http://www.mtv.com/shared/media/images/artist/q/q_tip/az_official/281×211.jpg

    I’ve been told I can achieve this soulful style by getting my hair long enough to braid then undo the braids and finger it out. I am tiring to find out different hair care techniques that will add this journey.

    2ndly Is it true that itchy scalp = hair growth? How often should “We” (Black Men) wash our hair if we want it to grow at a rapid pace?

    Thanks a lot

    • ANSWER:
      well i’m not a brotha but i am a sista. i like the hairdo you are trying to get. it’s right you should braid it and then finger it out. different peoples hair grows at different times. i don’t know how fast your hair grows but if you wash it every weekend i think it’ll be sure to grow. also, keep it very well moisturized. there’s one product called cury buttercream. it works so well on naturally kinky hair. well,i hope i’ve helped a little.

  39. QUESTION:
    My hair grows to a certain length and stops growing.?
    Ok, everytime I try to grow my hair out for braids it grows kinda fast but only grows to about 1- 1 1/2 inches. What pills help hair growth for men?

    Ps Im 15 and not experiencing hair loss n im black

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t think you should go popping pills just yet. I have been reading a forum for long hair care http://www.longhaircareforum.com/forums/ and they have been talking about an oil that speeds up hair growth. It’s called Boundless Tresses growth serum, you can buy it at http://growthspecifics.com/. I haven’t tried this oil yet but I have ordered some a couple days ago. I plan to use the oil and give myself a scalp massage daily. Also make sure you aren’t washing your hair everyday once a week should be enough. Also, motions has some great hair care regimen http://www.motionshair.com/M_ybl/M_ybl_ss1.cfm When you go to sleep make sure u cover your hair with something that’s silk or satin, a Du rag maybe. this is important because you don’t want your pillow to absorb all the moisture from your hair or create friction that will damage your ends. Make sure you check out that forum, they are black ppl with lots of great hair advice.

  40. QUESTION:
    Ummmm Is my hair breaking?
    I’m a black man growing his hair out. I’m not mixed so my hair is a complete fro. However I’m wondering why I have a part on the top of my head sort of. I dont know if it supposed to be there or if it’s natural?
    I dont put alot of chemicals in my hair. I wash it like every 15 days and I condition maybe every 8-9 or so. after showering i put in africa’s best super gro, which i realllyy like and dont suspect is the cause. I also sometimes use Olive Oil Root stimulator but not too often
    I’m also noticing little hair falling out when i pick it out. I think I need to use a wider sized pick and I’m buying one today. Or maybe i need to wrap my hair when i sleep from now on?

  41. QUESTION:
    i need to get black out of my hair.?
    oh man. so i went to the salon today (btw, its supposed to be a very good salon, one of the best in where i live) and i wanted to take my black hair to blonde. kind of like kim kardashians blonde hair. okay, so ive been growing out my hair for like 3 years now, its mid back and i love the legnth. problem is, mid shaft my hair is black and unfortunitly, its BLACK BOX color :( and my virgin hair is like a dark ask blonde. so instead of doing it myself and messing it up, i went to this well talked about salon, HA well. she didnt even strip my box dye out on the bottom she just went straight to foiling it. which I think is really retarted because its not going to come out the same on my virigin hair than it would on my black boxed dyed hair on the bottom. so it came out all uneven color and she ended up toning it back to my natural color, so i paid 0 dollars for basically nothing. my question is, should she have bleached where my boxed dye was and then dyed it close to my natural color? and then foiled? she didnt even strip the color out, she just went straight to foiling. or should i just try a different salon? how do i get this dye out? they talk like its impossible but i know its deffinitly NOT. :( help.

    • ANSWER:
      That must be fustrating, but yes that is exactly what she should have done. Was she new, or something? Even I know this.

      I do my own hair, personally because I hate salons for the same reason. What I like to do from going to black – blonde is use some kind of natural non-oil based product that helps my boxed coloured hair fade faster, then do some bleaching then dye, only because you don’t want to damage your hair, going from black to blonde is the worst and hardest thing to do on your hair but if you find the right stuff you can do it yourself.

      If you don’t want to do it yourself, wait a few weeks before going back to a salon, wether it be completely different, or the same one with a different stylist

  43. QUESTION:
    Whats with Black men dating way outside their race these days?
    Okay so me and my friend were out and about today in our hometown of New Yawk City!, and we noticed so many black men with non-black women by their sides…The whole black guy/spanish girl thing has gone on for the longest time so that was nothing new to see but today we saw a plethora of black men with white/asian/ or sum kind of armenian woman by their side..Now dont get me wrong i, along with my friend,think the intertwining of the races is a beautiful thing..if it is real..We came to the conclusion that alotta the black men that we know and see only get with these women so their kids will have that ‘gud hair’ (black people know wat i’m talkiin about)..Its sad but true,especially wen mos of these relationships end,only proving our point..Black men need to grow up and realize that us black women do hav that gud hair..i dont kno ne one of us who wud step outta the house lookin wretched..but what i wud like to kno is why?..Why do black men these days prefer women outside of their race?

    • ANSWER:
      I personally don’t know why…I see such beautiful black women and I am envious. I think that some people are just looking for something other than themselves or what they have always known. But let me add that I feel good when I see an interracial couple. Ya see, I live in the South and when I was in High School, there was a couple of interracial couples and they recieved such ridicule for being different. I am originally from right here in the south, but I never had that “redneck” mentality. I wish that everyone could love one another and not see color!! Also, let me add that a few years ago, you only seen white women with black men, but now, I see lots of black women with white men and black women with hispanic men. As for interracial “break-ups”, I think its hard to make any relationship work, and interracial is just harder because of differences in culture and pressure from family and friends. Just my opinion!!!!

  46. QUESTION:
    I need help on growing my hair out?
    I’m a male, and I’m trying to grow my hair out into a mini-curly fro. But my hair is too thick and coarse/frizzy, basically “nappy”. When I wash it/shampoo it and condition it, after I get out, it’s peasy. And when I pic it out it just turns into an afro with no curls. Hair strings are sticking out almost all over. Basically, frizz. What could I use that’ll make my hair look/feel the way I want? I’ve used the following:
    -Tea Tree Oil
    -Mousse
    -And recently, “Wet” (Type of wet Gel you use after you get of the shower.)

    I tried not washing my hair for week or so. Still the same results. I want something like this:

    • ANSWER:
      Please look up Shea Moisture, it is sold only at Target at the moment, I also have short curly hair, and tried several products to achieve this look. Buy the Curl Smoothie (pink label) you put it in after the wash/conditioner, you wont try another product ever again. You will not need the gel.
      This stuff leaves your hair soft, shiny, and curly.
      As for the frizz, once you put the product in, let it air dry, do not touch it too much with your fingers, thats how most frizz is caused. You will thank me! Let me know how it goes. Good luck!

  47. QUESTION:
    How to get curly like hair (For men)?
    I have black hair, so when it grows it gets really nappy (dont know how to take care of it, all i do is just comb it out). I had a afro for my whole life (2-3 inches), with me rarely cutting it and still keeping the afro. It is very thick hair. Well I decided my hair is in horrible condition and decided to start my hair all over, and gotten a dark ceaser. Now I want to know instead it growing back to its really nappy afro state, at least i can have some style with it. What products can help my grow curly like hair (Like spanish hair)

    Will Smith had some sort of curly hair and had a afro in the past, so dont tell me it cannot be done. Please if your not willing to help me, dont answer at all.

    • ANSWER:
      have you tried gels? i don’t know what guys are comfortable with doing, hahah, but i have “real afro” hair, but when it’s wet and has gel, it’s curly.

      if you know your hair grows a certain way naturally, no product can “make” it grow out of your scalp differently.

      you can only try to change your hair once it has already grown.

      I just want u to like your hair the way it is. :D to get your hair “spanish” and you are not in fact spanish, you’d have to STYLE it a certain way. again, i say gel is the way to go!

      good luck :)

  48. QUESTION:
    Why do some black men look down on black women who wear weaves but…? ?
    A little background: I am a 25 year old black woman who LOVES to style and change up her hair. My natural hair, without added hair is to the bottom of my neck, and is a natural sandy brown color. Every since I was a child, I have love to do my hair in various ways. And yes, I got a relaxer when I was about 9 or 10. Well, I have grown my hair out to almost my shoulders, have shaved it completely off, have had every kind of full-weave, braids and extension and have dyed it from jet black to blond…and suprisingly it is still growing, healthy and strong. My question is—why do “SOME” black men treat black women who wear weaves like we’re trying to “hide” something or we’re ashamed of our natural hair or that we want to be white women, when white women wear extensions/add-ons too! And what is the kicker is, most black men won’t give you a second look the more “natural” your hair sometimes is, yet will break their necks if you have a Hawain silky weave down to your butt. What gives?!

    • ANSWER:
      They’re…most likely very stupid. They can’t decide what they want. Do they want natural or not? Just forget them, if you spend your time trying to please every idiot out there you’ll be miserable.

  49. QUESTION:
    Why do so few black people let their natural afros grow out?
    Remember Pam Grier, the sexy black actress from the 1970s blacksploitaion films? She was hot- and there was somthing about most black women in the 70s that was super hot- Black men and women rarely straightened their hair out back then, but kept their hair natural, and grew out full afros. I think the afro was natutal and sexy. When white peole tried to change their hair into afros, it looked silly on them…..

    Will the afro come back? A sexy black woman with a real and natural afro is hot- 100 times sexier with hair thats straightened and dyed blond…Many black women wear extensions- why can’t they see their real hair is sexy?
    These days, black men seem to either shave their heads outright, keep it cut very very short- or if long, its in dreadlocks- but I haven’t seem a black man with a full afro in years….The afro was awsome, and should come back..

    • ANSWER:
      I am black and have an afro right now. I agree, natural hair is so attractive on us. I wish more black people would agree with me. And for the girl that said afro’s are hard to manage, that’s not true. It’s a lot easier and quicker for me to do my hair now than it was when I was getting relaxers. My hair is so much healthier and is growing so fast. For the first time in my life, I LOVE MY HAIR!! That’s a beautiful feeling.

  50. QUESTION:
    Thick, straight hair- Men?
    Hi, I have very thick, straight, black hair and I would like to grow it longer. I always use wax in my hair because it looks very bad when its flat and dry. Ive tried growing it longer before but i always get frustrated once i can no longer style it up and I get it cut. I always get it thinned out but after a few days its grows thick again. Any help appreciated, thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Mate, I got the same problem you do. Couple of things to take note.

      1. Styling long hair for it to stand up is a large hassle, and unless you’re prepared to load up on hair products and have really strong hair, go for a more easy hairstyle with long hair, such has a surfer’s cut.

      2. Thinning sucks. Especially on thick straight hair. Because for me, it only works for a week before it’s back to its original state. If you want to keep long hair, you have to learn to survive without thinning. And with thick straight hair, it’s close to impossible.

      My advice? Try keeping it a medium length, anywhere from below your ear to jaw or something. or even shorter than that. Wax or clay still gives you that textured feel without seeming too overdone. You wanna keep a balance. Then after that phase is over, for thick straight hair, keeping it short and styled works the best.


Growing Hair Out

If you are transgendered and looking for a way to increase your breast size, there are numerous techniques. Trust me, I studied them all and came to the conclusion that if you want transgender breast growth, the only way to go is the natural way. Here’s what I learned during my months of studying.

First, although surgery is possible to for transgender breast growth, the risks are really high. I found out that it is actually possible for your implants to strain the skin on your chest to the breaking point. This leads to massive infections and some hideous scarring. Apparently, the male chest just does not have enough skin and tissue to support implants, especially if you want them big. The costs of surgery also turned me off. It is just too risky to pay that much for something that may end up killing me or leaving me disfigured.

Next up, I took a look at an incredible amount of natural supplements. These all claim that transgender breast growth is possible, but I was not convinced. I read through all of their sites and finally settled on Mammorex. They have some of the best client reviews and the combination of ingredients was incredibly safe.
For transgender breast growth, you need to have a supplement that will target the tissue on your chest. Essentially, our chests are the same as women’s chests; we just don’t have the amount of estrogen necessary to grow our own breasts like they can. That’s why we need a supplement like Mammorex to get the job done for us. I really wasn’t sure that the claims that it would increase my breasts from one to three cup sizes were true, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Mammorex’s blend of herbs actually does work. These are herbs that have been in use for hundreds of years and they have been proven to effectively create transgender breast growth. Although they are marketed primarily to women, men use the product all the time and see real results. The folks at Mammorex are really nice and helped me understand how it worked for their other male clients and what I could expect.

I must say that I was really surprised at just how effective this supplement is for transgender breast growth. I look natural and more importantly, feel natural. I don’t have lumps of silicone dragging me down or endangering my health. I didn’t have to break my bank to get here either.

Most people who try Mammorex for transgender breast growth have reported that it takes about six months to see real results and I would agree with that. Some people actually have seen a three cup increase using the product for more than a year, so it is definitely possible to get amazing results. Yes, it took a little longer than implants would have, but I made the right choice for my body. You owe it to yourself to take the natural route first if you want transgender breast growth. Don’t rely on risky surgery and bad results when you can try this first for a lot less money.

Thanks to an advancement in science and medicine, men looking to grow male breasts now have a few more options to consider. Take a few minutes today to learn more about these male breast enhancement supplements and discover how to grow male breasts naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Why do I have hair growing out of my chin?
    Every since I was 30 I have been growing hair out of my chin. It first started with a little one growing out of a mole on my face a little above my chin. Now they are going crazy and I literally have to tweeze everyday. I am sure it’s a hormone imbalance, but I am just curious what I can do? I refuse to ever shave it. I am a 42 year old female. It makes me feels so ugly and disgusting and I have heard laser treatment is expensive. Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Hirsutism is the excessive growth of thick hair, particularly on areas of the body not commonly seen in women. The hair growth in hirsutism is typical of male hair growth patterns, affecting the face (moustache/mustache or beard), chest, abdomen or back. While most women may have fine hair on these parts of the body, in hirsutism, the type of hair growth is usually associated with androgenic hair growth (hair as a result of high levels of male hormones, androgens).

  4. QUESTION:
    whats the best anti-breakage shampoo? ANd i also need tips on growing out my hair?
    right now i use herbal essences long term relationship but im almost out and i want to change it up.
    i was thinking pantene beautiful lengths?
    & some tips and vitamins for growing hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some tips for growing your hair and getting the best hair shampoo.

      #1- I recommend that you eat a lot of healthy foods such as fruits, vegetables and nuts(especially almonds) and drinks lots of water.

      #2- Do not wash your hair with shampoo every time you take a bath/shower. Shampoo is merely just soap and dries your hair out. I recommend that you wash your hair with shampoo 3 times a week and the rest of the week, apply conditioner to hair and leave it in for about an hour then rinse it to cleanse and moisturize your hair at the same time.

      Hope that helps!!

  5. QUESTION:
    Guy who has a Problem with growing hair out longer?
    I’m an asian guys and I have generally short hair, maybe 1 inch in front top and it tapers down on the sides and to the back. Ive always liked my hair longer and I try to aim for those cool asian styles. Now every my hair grows longer, it tends to get really poofy on the sides and instead of going over my ears, it curls over the top of it and sticks out. Does this usually happen and how do I fix it?

    • ANSWER:
      I’m not asian, but I have thick hair and it gets puffy too on the sides. I’m trying to grow it out long too. What you needa do is let it grow out long enough. After a while, gravity will take hold of your hair and pull it down, whether you want to or not. Until it gets to that length, wear a head band. They sell head bands at sports stores like Dick’s, but you don’t have to get the thick ones, you can get the skinny ones too.

    ok, so i cut my hair in may really short into a “concave” jaw length bob. starting at the shortest point in the back, it tapered down and got longer in the front. now it’s grown out, and the layers just don’t work anymore. i want to grow it out and end up with a normal shaped, longish hair cut, with a V shape in the back (with the front pieces shorter.) i need to trim it though, and take out a lot of the bulkiness, cause the layers are getting weird lumps and flips in them. any suggestions on how to trim the minimum amount possible, while trying to gradually get the front shorter than the back?

    • ANSWER:
      when you go to your hair stylist they should be able to tell you what the best way is to do this. when i grew my hair out my stylist used a razor to remove the bulk and i still had cute layers. then as it grew out she would cut the bottom layer off to make things more even.

  7. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any tips as to growing hair out?
    mine’s in pretty bad shape from being dyed so many times, and it’s naturally curly, so i hate cutting a whole inch or two off, because when i do leave it curly, it’s too short.

    i don’t want extensions.

    i’m taking prenatal vitamins, and eating healthy due to my pregnancy, and i’ve heard this will also do a number on your hair and nails.

    but does anyone else have any OTHER tips i could use to strengthen and/or grow my hair out longer, faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Try not to style it too much or use any products like hairspray or gel. Don’t blow dry it or use straighteners or curling irons because you will damage and break the hair. Don’t brush it too much either because this will also break the hair. Don’t put it in ponytails too much either, because this can also break it.

      I think taking the vitamins and eating healthy is good too, because a healthy body produces healthy hair.
      Good luck!

    what are some home remedies for growing hair out? Special shampoos?
    my hair is about 5 inches past my shoudlers. Im trying to grow it out for prom, which is in about 2 years; a little less.
    I want it down to about my elbows.
    What can i do to promote the growth?

    • ANSWER:
      There’s a shampoo and conditioner from pantene that works really well. It’s called Beautiful Lengths or something. Also avoid a lot of heat and trim your hair regularly, all three of these will stimulate your hair to grow quicker. :]

  11. QUESTION:
    Growing hair out to chin length?
    I have short hair right now (it just touches my jaw, and the bangs are past my nose). I cut my hair last month into a pixie cut and so far it’s growing out pretty quickly as it was REALLY short last month. I have not coloured my hair or straightened it so there’s very minimal, if any, damage.

    I want to try to grow my hair back out to a chin-length bob. How long will it take to get to that length?

    • ANSWER:
      Not very long, maybe 1 or 2 months.
      You can aid rate of growth by taking multivitamins and making sure you’re eating enough protein.

  12. QUESTION:
    Growing hair out, haven’t had haircut in 11 months. Will getting a trim make the hair grow better/healthier?
    How much do I need cut? My hair is wavy, thick & dry. It doesn’t look like I have split end. I have heard though that getting hair trimmed makes it grow better. Is that true? Should I go to the salon and get a trim? 1/2 inch good?

    • ANSWER:
      Since it has been 11 months, you will probably need at least an inch but probably not much more.
      It is definitely healthy to get your hair trimmed every couple of months. Everyone’s ends split and become dry. And if you just let your hair grow and grow, your split ends will begin to start breaking off and it will seem as though your hair is growing slower and slower because your ends continue to break. Also, your ends will start to look dead and ratty after awhile.
      Definitely get it trimmed. The stylist will tell you how much you need to get cut off to be healthy.
      Good luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    Is there any method of growing hair out at a faster rate than normal?
    I’m looking for a method of growing hair at a faster rate than normal.
    Are there any pills, shampoos, whatever without any bad side effects?

    I haven’t researched this so I decided to turn to Yahoo Answers in my time of need. Don’t let me regret this, Yahoo Answers community. Do not… let me… regret this…

    • ANSWER:
      I recommend trying a multi-vitamin supplement, along with Vitamn E pills maybe. The state of your hair is a reflection of your physical health, so the healthier you are, the healthier your hair will be, and the faster it will grow.

      Try some of the extra-conditioning hair treatments you can find in the drugstores to prevent breakage and split ends… I use Pantene a lot. Suave and those brands are cheaper, but I’ve found through experience that it’s better to pay a little extra and use the really good stuff.

  16. QUESTION:
    I’m a 20 year old female and I am growing hair out of some unusual places! What do I do?
    I think I might have some hormonal problems or something… I don’t have regular periods, I’m having fertility problems, I have hair on unusual places on my body… I don’t know what to do! What is wrong with me and what do I do?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds to me like you have polycystic ovaries. This is what I have. The unusual hair growth or “hiruitism” as it is technically called, is due to an increase in the hormone “androgen” in your bloodstream. Androgens are the reason why we get excessive hair growth and they are also present in men, which might explain this very masculine symptom.

      The doctor will do a blood test as previous posters mentioned and also may refer you for an ultrasound. Don’t be worried or alarmed, the ultrasound will just be to check that it IS infact polycystic ovaries. Once diagnosed, as there is no “cure” as such for this problem, the doctor will help you to manage it.

      Many women will be prescribed the contraceptive pill as this should regulate the body. But if you didn’t want to use this, as many women don’t, then you might have to adjust your diet, reducing sugar and dairy products for starters.

      Can I ask, are you overweight? This could be a factor also.

      Hope this helps. x

  19. QUESTION:
    will growing hair out make curls bigger?
    right now, my hair is fairly short and the curls are small and frizzy. If I grew my hair out, would the curls get bigger, or would it just be the same but thicker?

    • ANSWER:
      The hair won’t be any thicker so the curls won’t be thicker. Also, the longer the hair, the heavier it is. That means it will actually be smaller curls. It might be less frizzy though.

    Why is my hair growing out os thick and frizzy?
    When i was yonger i had reallly nice streight hair but in the first grade or so my mom decided to shave it :/ ever since then my hairs been groing out all thick almost as if i was growing an afro :D lol but anyway any ideas on why this could be?

    • ANSWER:
      The change in the texture had nothing to do with the shaving. Think about it…How can cutting the hair above the skin have any effect on how the hair is formed under the skin? I would blame genetics. Probably your mom cut off the last of your baby hair which left the more mature hair. This obviously made the hair feel very different.

  25. QUESTION:
    How do I go about growing my hair out natural?
    I know that people say to cut out all of the perm in your hair, but I dont want to cut off my hair like that since it’s so long. I’d probably start crying. would it be okay if I just let my hair grow out and not perm it? it breaks off anyways, so the perm will be gone eventually. do you think that would look tacky, though? I’d press my hair until a lot grows out. what should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry to say, but the easiest way to grow your hair out natural is to cut it off. When I initially cut mine off, people thought I was crazy since my hair was past my shoulder. BUT, guess what, it’s no big deal – hair grows back. My natural hair is healthier and now way past my shoulder, just about bra strap length when stretched. Since it was a shock to have short hair, I wore my hair in microbraids or opted for having my hair braided so I could easily wear a wig. Anyway, the problem with having two textures of hair – permed and natural is that it will cause breakage and damage so it’s much easier and healthier to just cut it off. There’s a book I love called Let’s Talk Hair – look for it on an auction site – it should be very cheap and it talks a lot about the transition from permed to natural. Also, there is a natural website called nappturality.com for inspiration and a WEALTH of information.

    How do I avoid my newly cut hair growing out curly?
    Hi! I’ve just cut my hear short. My hair have been medium to long for the past 5 years. It tends to grow out a little curly at the hair tips and at the sides, but otherwise it’s straight. I hate having these curls. My hair is straight now but I want it to grow a little longer and at the same time avoid curls. I don’t want chemical straightening and I think that a hair straighter sounds tiresome and ineffective to short hair :S What can I do?
    I’m a boy :):):):):)

    • ANSWER:
      Its nearly impossible! My hair is ~straight~ and it does that when i cut it. I just get it cut in a curve in the back ( because I’m a girl ) with shorter hair in the back and longer in the front. It looks good straightened or regular.
      If I were you ( & a boy ) I would get it cut in a different way!

  32. QUESTION:
    Is it true that a mole is probably not dangerous if it has hair growing out of it?
    I heard that if there’s hair growing out of a mole, then it’s probably not dangerous.
    Is this true?

    • ANSWER:
      All moles are potentially dangerous. Especially if they change shape, color or are ‘new’.. and if it’s a mole that has seen some sun over the years. Always have an MD keep tabs on a mole and seek their advice if they feel it is fine and normal -

      There are no old wives tales regarding moles. I am positive if you have no change in the mole it is likely fine but always keep your eyes on them.

    I am a 15 year old african american I recently started growing out my hair will it be shoulder length next yea?
    I have my hair in braids my end tips touch my neck when pulled down. My hair grows faster than average black people hair. My Puterican friend grew out his hair past his shoulders in lest then a year. I’ve been growing mine out for 7 months probably

    • ANSWER:
      Normal hair growth is 1/2inch a month , some people a little more. So, in a year, you will grow at least 6 inches of hair. It is also important to get regular trims on your hair while it is growing. You don’t have to do much, just keep the ends cleaned up so it will stay healthy while it is growing.

  34. QUESTION:
    How often should a guy wash his hair if he is growing it out very long?
    I am a guy and im letting my hair grow out to atleast below my butt. How often is necessary that i wash my hair to promote growth?

    • ANSWER:
      Washing your hair typically doesn’t promote growth…just get a regular trim at your hairdresser/barber’s so that your hair does not have dead ends and will allow it to grow more quickly. However, to take care of your long hair, you should wash it every other day unless your hair has a tendancy to become oily, which in that case would mean washing it daily is a good idea. Never condition your hair at the roots, as you do not need excess oil there. Instead, just condition the ends of your hair. Good luck!

  35. QUESTION:
    why is trimming hair good for growing it out?
    i mean if you trim it like .5 of an inch, it’ll just be shorter and on average hair grows .5 of an inch per month so wouldn’t i jjust have to wait a month to grow back to the elngth i had and then it’ll start growing out again.
    and i heard that the oftener the better. So if i cut my hair every month, well i mean trim it, then wouldn’t it just be the same length?

    • ANSWER:
      no the more regularly you trim your hair, the faster it grows.
      the way that your hair sucks up nutrients is through the ends of the strands. and if they have any split ends then they don’t get nutrients as well. so the more you cut it, the faster it grows. if your hair gets used to having those nutrients, it grows he healthier.

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, if you’re growing your hair out, get your hair trimmed every three months. As weird as this sounds, you can get really shiny hair by mixing egg whites together and lathering the mixture into your hair. Leave on for 10-20 minutes then wash with your favorite shampoo and conditioner. Do this at least 2 times a week for best results.

    Is it true that if you have a hair growing out of a mole, then it is NOT cancerous?
    I have a protruding mole on my stomach, that has grown and is three different colors and is a little red on the outsides. my doc is on vacation so my appointment isnt for two weeks, but it has a little hair growing out of it, so any helpful answers are appreciated. thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair can grow out of cancerous as well as not cancerous moles. Yours sounds like it needs to be checked, especially because of the colors. But what the hair folicles are or aren’t doing has nothing to do with if the cells have become malignant. I had Basal Cell carcinoma mole removed and it had a hair growing. I wish you all the best, I’m glad your getting it checked.

      It’s always a good idea to have a once a year mole mapping check up so you and your doctor can be aware of any changes.

    Why do I have one or two dark hairs growing out of a mole on my arm although the rest of my hair is blond?
    Why do I have one or two dark hairs growing out of a mole on my arm although the rest of my hair is blond?

    • ANSWER:
      Many people have hair growing out of their moles. While you should regularly check your moles for any changes in shape or colour, the growth of hair is nothing to worry about.

      If the hair is unsightly, for example, if it is on a mole on the face, you may wish to have it removed. Many people in this position simply pluck the hair. If you have any queries or concerns, consult a doctor or dermatologist.

  43. QUESTION:
    What do I do for growing out hair that is usually fade into a longer cut/style?
    I have always had a clean cut fade look. But I’ve been growing it out for a shaggy look. Got it trimmed a few times. And a major trimmage for prom, last month. It’s not too long right now. The start of the hair scap is at one inch, then as you go up, it’s two inches, then finally the area at the top is three inches. My bangs are right above my eye browl.

    I hear people saying that if you’re growing it out, you need to get a layer and a thinning or something? What are those, by the way?

    But, ultimately, my question is: since I’ve always had a fade, do I need to get my hair adjusted in anyway or something? Or do I just let it grow out to a certain lenght before getting layers and thinning? If so, what lenght?

    The mole is flesh colored so you can hardly see it, but it’s about the size of a pea, flat in shape, but it has long hairs growing out of it. His hair is white blond and so is the hair coming out of the mole. I don’t know if the doctor has even noticed it before. I’m his Nana and I just noticed it today. Its on the bottom of the ear close to his face and hair so the hair in the mole just seems to blend in with his hair. The hair is soft.
    Should I be concerned about this?

      Only if you notice changes in the size, shape, or color.

      it’s not impossible. you can buy a pair of thinning shears for under . they have a blade that looks ridged and they cut every other hair without changing the length. they are easy to use, you can’t mess it up really.

      some hair places will have this as part of your haircut, depending on where you live, and others will look at you like you’re crazy (if you live somewhere where everyone has light, thin, sparse hair, ahem, not saying where but take a guess) and tell you it’s impossible

  48. QUESTION:
    Trying to grow hair out- Hair growing tips?
    People are so confusing on this subject.
    Some say cut your hair every 6-8 weeks,some dont.
    In the past year I have been straightening my hair aLOT. It’s damaged and i’m trying to get my healthy hair back.So can you guys give me any tips for growing good healthy hair back? [:

    • ANSWER:
      yes, its true :D
      dont believe the people who say it doesnt lol

      getting the split ends cut off every month-every other month will make your hair grow a little faster and a little healthier
      you can even do it yourself or get one of your friends to cut it instead of spending in a salon =/ meh lame.

      it also helps hair grow in thicker, but you can fix that if you dont like thick hair..just go to the salon every..ooh id say about every 6 months..and get it thinned out with those cool scissors lol

      another good thing to do is not use a lot (or none at all) of gel, moose, sprays, and the flat iron..
      the flat iron at least for a while until your hair repairs
      gel and moose dry your hair out

      take a mulitvitamin like ‘one a day teen advantage’ because sometimes damaged hair is because you are lacking vitamins, such as vitamin E

      make sure when you wash your hair, the shampoo gets rinsed completely out, then put conditioner in and leave it in as you wash and shave and all that good stuff you do in the shower lol then make sure you completely rinse that out too

      **TOWL DRY HAIR AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE BEFORE YOU BLOWDRY**

      that way you spend less time with the heat (damage.) on your hair AND it will make your hair soft :)
      no joke! rubbing your hair between the towl will make it softer
      just start at the roots and rub to the tips or your hair until its semi-dry.(because of course it wont be completely dry)
      this works. i have no idea why but it does :)

      on days you are not going anywhere or just chilling at your house..dont blow dry your hair at all. that helps too :)

      I really, really hope this helps =]

  50. QUESTION:
    What should I know about growing my hair out?
    I am a guy and I want to grow my hair long. Not absurdly long, but about the length of Johnny Depp or Diego Forlan. I have two main questions
    1. What are some tips for growing my hair out?
    2. What are some hairstyles i can use during the awkward stages between normal length and long hair?

    • ANSWER:
      try shaggy, wavy effect :

      This one is easy to do. Shampoo and condition your hair. Towel dry. Apply a mousse or other styling product lightly to your damp hair to give it some texture.. While your hair is still damp, bend your head over so you’re drying your hair upside down. Dry your hair with the blow dryer while using your hands to scrunch it. Once your hair is dry, throw your head back and immediately spray with silvikrin Flexible Hairspray

      here are some tips for u

      1) make sure it’s healthy. use lots of conditioner, get it trimmed when need be, etc.
      2) massage your scalp. it increases the blood flow and makes your hair grow faster.
      3) get lots of sleep. your hair grows fastest when you’re resting.
      4) eat as much fruit/veg as you can.
      5) drink 8 glasses of water a day.
      6) exercise at least 3 times a week for half an hour. again, it increases the blood flow.
      7) there are some vitamins you can get from places like Holland & Barrett and Boots.
