Grow Long Hair Fast Tips

Growing taller has for long been the primary concern for many people round the world. The concept has recently became even more popular, which explains why there are countless grow taller and height increase guides being sold on the internet today, some of which are pure scams. Here are some few tips which I think will be help you, in gaining some few more inches to your current height. It really doesn't matter if you have past puberty, you can still add some extra inches to your height, as long as you follow these tips.

Tip#1: Your Diet: The majority vertically changed people are not aware of the strong relationship between your height, and what you eat. Growing taller could really be easy if you watch your diet. For instance, it has been established that consuming a good amount of fat regularly can increase the insulin level in your body, which in turns affects the development, then release of more and more growth hormones for your body. And as you know, growth hormones are what triggers growth. It is therefore very vital that you stop the consumption of processed food stuff, if you want to increase your height. You may want to have an idea on the type of food stuff which may help you: well, it has been established that Acai berry juice and fish oil are known to help people as far as growing taller is concerned.

Tip#2: Your Hairstyle: There is a difference between growing taller and looking taller. If you just want to seem taller, then your hair style is a great tool you can use to your advantage. A good grow taller hair style can really make you appear to have increased height. Just need to find a good hair saloon which can do that for you.

Tip#3: Your Dressing: Again this tip will not help you in growing taller, but can really make your seem taller. It has been established that men putting shirts with vertical stripes usually seem to be taller than they really are. Similarly women can try wearing high heals and a tall hat. Thatsurely will make them look taller.

Tip#4: Your Posture: This is always said all over the internet, guess its because it actually works. Your posture might not help you in growing taller, but it definitely will help you in appearing taller. Walking with your head high up, your stomach in, and your back stretched is the key here. What ever you do, do not bend your back. It only makes you look shorter that you really are.

Tip#5: Amount of Sleep: A good amount of sleep everyday will actually help you in growing taller. I mean adding some few inches to you height, which is different form just seeming taller than you are. Most people are not aware of the very close connection between getting adequate sleep and growing taller. The growth hormones released in the body are distributed only during sleep. Thus, making it very vital that you sleep well every night.

Tip#6: Growing Taller Through Exercises: It has been established that regular generalexercises can help you gain some extra inches to your height. There are also special growing taller exercises which if performed, can really boost your height.

Regular exercise such as running, pushup, jogging cycling, are said to increase the production of growth hormones, while special growing taller exercises such as Touch Your Toes, Sprint bursts, Yoga, Pilates, Wall stretching, Hanging, Swimming are said to stretch and force the body to somehow recover some hidden height. For example stretching your spin through hanging can really make you add some inches to your height. You will be surprised with the amount of height hidden behind your back.

Tip#7 Using Good Growing Taller Programs: Over the years, there has been an explosion of growing taller programs being sold on the internet. Most of theses programs and guides are pure scams. But that doesn't mean there are no genuine ones out there. I made some research and found this one guide which seems to be very effective. It is newly created and has helped many people in growing taller. You can read a review for this product here: Make Me Grow Taller Honest Review.

I wish you luck with your growing taller efforts.

    how do i make my hair grow long again fast? any tips?
    i have short hair and am so tired of it. are there any tips out there (not including wigs or hair extensions) to help make my hair grow faster??????

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair (and nails) will grow faster if you're healthy. So, no smoking/drinking, eat healthy food, get exercise.

      Also, keep your hair healthy - no heat styling, chemical treatments, never brush your hair when it's wet, only comb it with a wide-tooth comb.

      People with long hair swear they never get a trim. I have long hair, and I do get trims, but it took me almost three years to grow it.

  5. QUESTION:
    what are some tips to grow long hair really fast?
    Since 8th grade, I really really wanted to grow my hair very long...this is the length I wanted

    http://www.topnews.in/files/Kourtney_Kardashian.jpg

    I've tried very hard to grow it long, and I go months without getting it cut. Whenever It reached the middle of my chest, my split ends are pretty noticable, and when I go to get my split ends trimmed, the hairdresser cuts it way too short (i've been to a few different hair dressers now, and the same thing happens every time...they cut way more than just the split ends)

    I'm in 10th grade now and my hair still isn't long! It's about this length
    http://static.thehollywoodgossip.com/images/gallery/katie-holmes-long-hair.jpg

    I'm getting desperate, and I feel like I'm never going to have really long pretty hair

    any tips to make it grow faster, and healthier so I don't get split ends? About how many more months should it take me to grow it the length I want?

    I've been trying for like 3 years now D: lol

    • ANSWER:
      the problem here is that you've gone months without getting it trimmed,so when you go to the hair dresser your split ends go quite far up the hair strand. What you need to do is get a trim and have the hairdresser give your hair a treatment. The next step is to not style your hair using flat irons or curling irons, although you can blow dry your hair on occasion and straighten it for special events(but you MUST you a good heat protector).

      every 4-6 weeks go and get a light trim, make sure to tell your hair dresser you want only half a centimeter off -or however much you want- and then go back to your normal routine which should include deep moisturising shampoo's and conditioner and a treatment that you bought from the store to use once a week. I find that the leave in treatments that you wear all night work best, unlike the once you rinse off in the shower after 5 mins.

      TIPS: Calcium based treatments are a must if you have very dry brittle hair with split ends, but make sure you follow up this treatment with a deep conditioning treatment as the calcium one leaves your hair stiff.

      everyday apply a shine serum to your hair( this is optional but i love how it makes your hair shiny and eliminates frizz) - try DE LORENZO allevi8 shine serum ( it comes in a small blue bottle)

      inbetween your weekly hair treatments apply a leave in conditioner everynight to help keep your hair healthy.

      if you just keep this routine your hair should become healthier.

      hope i helped!

  6. QUESTION:
    I'm trying to grow my hair out! Any tips to grow your hair out fast?
    I have had short hair for forever! It seems like it never grows! I need a change, and i want long hair. I have thick hair, so is there any tips that might actually work to get my hair to grow fast?

    • ANSWER:
      I actually grew my hair out to donate not too long ago. Prior to that, my entire life I had had short hair. I think I've got this one.

      So okay the first thing you will want to do is start conditioning your hair. I recommend when you wash your hair, shampoo and rinse, then apply the conditioner into your hair after your shower. Comb it into your hair like you would gel or mousse, and just leave it. You will want to only shampoo your hair every other day at most. The alternating day, just rinse your hair. The conditioner will work into and really soften your hair. You will want to keep this up as your hair starts to grow.

      The next thing you will want to do is periodically get your hair trimmed. The first time a hair stylist told me this, I thought she was just trying to get money out of me. After all, why get a trim when you want your hair longer? But as it turns out, the tips of your hair get frayed and split. Any hair stylist worth their salt will be able to find these no problem.

      So as your hair continues to get longer, you will want to do more things to keep it healthy aside from just conditioning. Every couple of months, you will want to pour a can of beer into your hair. I recommend getting just a can of cheap beer. Don't put it in the fridge. Just leave it sitting at room temperature or let it sit in a sink full of warm tap water for about half an hour. This is of course unless you want ice cold foam on top of your head. So you just go into the shower, wash your body like normal and then pour the can of beer into your hair. Let it sit and soak in for about ten minutes, then just rinse it out.

      Another thing you should do once in a while also is apply a cholesterol treatment. You can usually buy these where hair care products are sold. Queen Helene makes a good one. Just follow the directions on the box, and let it soak in just the same as the beer. One good thing is that it contains a perfume that makes your hair smell nice, though not overly girly.

      Follow these steps and you will have hair that is about as soft as an average house cat. If you omit one or more of these steps, your hair will be a little rougher, and if you do none of these and just let your hair grow out without caring for it, it will basically become something resembling hemp twine.

      And that's the best advice I can give

    What have you done to help make your hair grow fast?

    Also my hair is fashioned in a long A line, so its just above my shoulders. I want to start growing it to about my elbows? How long will it ideally take?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,

      I know exactly what you mean, I have been there. I have had shortish hair for most of my life, but then decided to try and grow it. So here are a few things that will help to not only grow your hair, but also to make sure that it stays in the best condition possible which is very important!

      1) Do not wash your hair everyday, rather wash it every other day. This ensures that your hairs oils are not being constantly stripped away, as they are necessary for keeping your hair supple and helps against breakage.

      2) Use a brush that is soft on your hair. I try stay away from synthetic brushes, and instead use a boar bristle brush which is gentle on my hair.

      3) Satin pillow cases are generally better and dry your hair out less than cotton pillow cases. Less friction, and so less damaging. Always try to sleep with your hair in a loose plait so that it doesn't get tangled at night as this could cause breakage.

      4) I would suggest doing a hot oil treatment at least once a week. Best oils to use are mustard oil and coconut oil which are able to penetrate the hair and add moisture. Leave on for as long as possible, and even better if it's overnight. Wash, rinse, repeat, rinse, & condition, and you will feel the difference being kind to your hair will make.

      5) Hair grows from the inside, so all the external things stop it from breaking, but does NOT help it to actually grow. Hair is made out of protein, so make sure that you have enough protein in your diet.

      6) As for the vitamins, there are some vitamins that are specifically for hair growth. The B vitamins (especially biotin (300 micrograms/day), niacin (100 milligrams/day), and pantothenic acid (500 milligrams/day), along with vitamin E (1000 IU), and Methyl-sulponyl-methane (MSM) (1000 milligrams/day which contains sulphur needed for hair formation). I also take a selenium supplement (200 micrograms/day) and a multivitamin to make sure I'm not lacking any other vitamin. These have definitely helped my hair grow like never before, but it comes at a price.

      7) Be very patient! Long hair doesn't just happen no matter what product you use. What you really need for long hair is DEDICATION. When you go and get your hair trimmed make sure to bring a friend with you to check that they are not cutting too much (I had this happen and cried for 2 days when she cut 30cm of my hair off!) and someone who understands your hair growth goals.

      If your hair is above your shoulders, and you want it to about your elbows, it will probably take about 14 months or so. Hair grows on average just 1.25-2 cm per month, so even though you can do things to improve the growth rate, it's still quite slow. Just be persistant and you will get there though. Having long hair is an absolute joy! I truly hope that this helps to not only give you longer hair, but hair that is super healthy and that you enjoy.

  16. QUESTION:
    any tips to make my hair grow long,fast?
    i went through a "spiky" hair faze this year and my hair's still suffering.it's about sholder length and i'd like it to be about down to where my underarms begin.

    do you have any tips to make my hair grow fassssst?

    • ANSWER:
      First of all, trimming your hair will NOT make it grow any faster. Hair grows from the root, by your scalp, so doing anything to your ends will not speed up progress.

      Trimming ends will, however, keep your hair neat, and keep your hair stronger which may lead to longer length.

      Eat a good diet, drink at least 8-10 glasses of water daily, take a multivitamin. All of these things will make your hair healthy from the inside out.

      Stimulating bloodflow might slightly increase how fast it grows. There's two ways you can do this.
      1. Exercise
      2. Massaging your scalp 5-10 minutes daily

      Try shampooing hair everyother day if your hair is oily or doesn't have a problem with dryness. If your hair is dry, then shampoo 1-3 times a week. Make sure you use good-quality hydrating shampoos and conditioners.

      Trade in plastic bristle brushes for a wide-tooth comb or a boar bristle brush.

      When you get out of the shower, squeeze excess water out of your hair and spray in a good leave-in conditioner. Then comb it through with a wide-tooth comb & let it air dry.

      Stay away from chemical processes like perms and coloring. They will break down your hair's cuticle and cause breakage.

      When you wash your hair, finish with a cold water rinse to seal the cuticle and add shine.

      Try using a monthly hot oil treatment, you can buy one at the store and follow those directions or you can use olive oil. Just boil a pot of water, and when it's boiling, take it off the burner and let it cool for a minute. Fill up a cup with olive oil and place it in the pot. When the olive oil inside heats up, apply to your hair and put on a plastic cap. Leave it on for 20-40 minutes and then rinse out. You can wash it out using a diluted shampoo and then use your daily conditioner.

      When your in the shower, leave the conditioner in your hair for ten minutes, before you rinse it out.

      Prenatal vitamins, kelp pills, and prenatal vitamins are also said to speed up hair and nail growth.

      Good luck. ♥

    • ANSWER:

  25. QUESTION:
    I need tips on how to grow hair long fast and nails long fast ?

    • ANSWER:
      If you've got good genes, your nails & hair should be growing normally. You get all your vitamins & minerals from your daily food requirements, from Mother Nature.
      Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in. Two others also:
      http://www.webmd.com/skin-beauty/feature…
      http://www.menshealth.com/spotlight/hair…

      Growing healthy 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. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      For your nails:
      Beauty products don't make nails grow.

      You really are what you eat. If you're eating all the healthy foods from Mother Nature - not made by man or woman or supplements from GNC, your hair, nails, teeth, and the rest of your body will benefit too. You get all your vitamins & minerals from your diet.

      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 to 4 years, and cut 2x a year. I cut my nails twice a month.

      How To Make My Hair Grow Longer
      Hairstyles Catalog
      by: Damien R. von Dahlem

      As I am sure you have heard, if you cut your hair frequently your hair will grow in faster, longer, and healthier.

      Gobbledygook! This myth came from the observation of men's facial hair. As they shaved, the facial hair would indeed grow in thicker. Its called, 'puberty.'

      This is because certain male hormones affect facial hair in that manner. They do not affect the hair on the head in the same way. Advertising

      To the contrary. Male hormonal activity is what leads to hair thinning and loss on certain parts of the head, but not all. Hence the familiar balding pattern known as 'male pattern baldness.' This same hormonal activity also affects women, but not until much later in life, and in a different pattern.

      Cutting your hair only makes it shorter, does not affect the growth rate one iota, and cannot determine the length that your hair will grow to. Maximum hair length is determined by the shape and width of the hair shaft, and that is determined genetically and is not alterable with current technology.

      Lastly, hair is neither healthy or unhealthy. It is in fact, dead. Else, it would really hurt to cut it. It is the health of the hair follicle below the outer skin that requires nutrients for good health, and deminished adverse hormonal activity.

      So, unless you have split ends or chemically damaged hair, the only need to cut your hair is for the look that you want.

      A few things that you can do to ensure that your hair follicle remains healthy and your hair is undamaged, are:

      1. Take an inexpensive daily multi vitamin such as 'One-A-Day' or even 'Flintstones.' Your hair likes zinc and biotin and both of the above mentioned vitmins contain ample amounts of these. Don't waste your hard earned money on 'super vitamins.' Your body only requires so many vitamins per day and simply discharges the excess. You can't put twenty gallons in a ten gallon tank. In some instances, over dosing on supplements can actually be fatal.

      2. Do not over brush your hair. With every stroke you damage your hair more. Brush only as much as you need to style your hair, then stop.

      3. Buy a good quality brush or comb without sharp plastic or metal ridges. This is one of the common factors leading to split ends, as is over brushing.

      4. Don't be penny foolish. Buy good quality salon products. The chemicals used in many if not most over the counter shampoos and conditioners, contain very harsh ingredients such as 'ammonium laurel sulfate' which can actually dry your hair out, and cause breakage and split ends. Even worse, many contain a form of silicon, and that can be very bad for your hair.

      5. Don't constrict your hair with tight bands, hats, braids and the like. These also lead to split ends and hair breakage.

      Hi Shelly,
      Just my opinion. I am from India and I am not an experienced person in this field.
      Most of the Indian girls have long hair. You may know that.. :)

      Dhathri Haircare herbal oil is very good to grow hair faster and to prevent hair falling..
      You can use this as a replacement for Coconut oil or Almond oil. Very useful in my view..
      My sister have long hair. She still love to use this herbal oil.

      I am not sure that this product available out of India. You can check that.

    My hair is currently about 4 inches below my shoulders and I would like it to be at a middle-rib length by graduation at the end of May. Any tips that will make it grow faster than usual?

    • ANSWER:
      you could use a shampoo from walmart that specializes in hair growth or hair repair (remember, good hair health is essential to growing it out. you could also buy a hair growth treatment, which you can also get at walmart. or you can get it at your local beauty supply store.
      also try to wear your hair in a tight ponytail when your just lounging around your house. this tuggs on your hair follicles and stimulates growth.
      but if your very anxious, there's nothing wrong with getting extensions.

      The best way to get your hair to grow is to focus on your diet. Protein and healthy fats are very important. You can also improve your hair growth with vitamins like biotin, pantothenic acid, Inositol, and MSM.

Talk to your doctor before you take any supplements.

    How to grow hair long and fast??? Help please!?
    So im giving up blow dryers and straighteners for a while so i can grow my hair really long and beautiful.
    Is there anything that can help me grow it long and fast??
    Any tips??

    • ANSWER:
      Hiya,

      The main element here is time...

      I've said this to a few other posts but it's the truth so here goes...

      The best thing to do is get a water based moisturiser with oils like Coconut or Olive oil (stay away from mineral oils like petroleum as they lubricate and don't penetrate - door hinges need lubrication to stop squeaking - hair doesn't!) moisturise daily!

      Use a protein conditioner. When you use a protein conditioner like Cholesterol etc, leave it on your hair, put a shower cap on and either sit under a hooded dryer for 20 mins or wrap a warm towel around your head - this opens up the hair shaft and allows the strengthening protein to penetrate the hair. Do this at least once a week.

      It's best to use a shampoo with the correct PH balance so anything that says it's for dry damaged hair is fine. You can wash as much as you need to - if you exercise often it's important to wash the salts out.

      Keep doing this and within six months you'll see a difference as the healthy hair grows at a rate of about a centimetre a month.

      It's a really good idea to stay away from heat appliances as they weaken your hair - well done you!

      Hope this helps.

      Well the trick is to get it trimmed A LOT, so you don't get deadends or anything, but don't get it cut too short. Growing it out takes a long time no matter what, so be patient! There's really no healthy way to grow your hair SUPER fast, except for like unnatural ways, which I would suggest.

    • ANSWER:
      Eat your vegetables, especially the green ones, like broccoli and spinach. Also make sure to drink lots of water. Your hair is composed of what you eat, smoke, drink, meds you take, etc. Also, be hair friendly, no heat, don't put it up while its wet, things like that, to prevent split ends and other damage. There is no miracle product that will make your hair grow faster or longer. Not everyone's hair will grow to the floor, each strand has a predetermined length it will grow before it falls out. Good luck!

Grow Long Hair Fast Men

Would you like to learn how to get a larger penis size fast, easy, consistently, and permanently? Read on to discover a very natural but VERY fast way to get a larger manhood size extremely fast.

Okay, the first thing I would like to discuss with you about are the unnatural ways that I strongly recommend for you to avoid.

1.) Pumps - In theory, using these types of devices "seem" like they would work. However, they are actually pretty dangerous given the fact that one of the biggest issues they can cause is the development of Peyronies Disease!

2.) Hanging Weights - Okay, let's see here. You take a strap on some weights and attach it to the penis to "stretch" it out. I don't know about you, but that just made me flinch like crazy! Hanging weights is VERY dangerous and can cause a mountain of problems including impotence, nerve damage, deformation, scarring, and so much more!

3.) Surgery - There is a high failure rate with penis growth surgery, and that alone should deter you away from this one. Not to mention, it is EXTREMELY expensive.

4.) Pills - Pills are the more popular option but they are one of the most problematic ways to get a larger penis size. For starters, the ingredients in some of these pills are not recommended by the FDA, the results are not permanent, they only cause harder erections as opposed to an actual increase in your penis size, and so much more!
Well my friend, that pretty much covers all of the things I recommend for you to avoid. Now let's talk about what really does work to get a larger penis size fast, easy, and 100% naturally:

Penis exercises are the most effective way to get a huge penis as quickly as possible, but 100% naturally, easily, affordable.

With penis exercises:

  • They can be done at home in privacy and they only take less than 10 minutes to do.
  • They are extremely effective because of the fact that they work the primary tissues (Corpora Cavernosa and the Corpus Spongiosum) of the penis. If you break down the cells of these tissues, when they regrow, they come back HUGE (thicker and longer).
  • The results are permanent... they will not produce short term results such as with those unnatural methods.
  • There are many different forms of exercises that you can do so that you can develop the perfect size (thickness and length) that YOU want.

Are you ready to Enlarge Your Penis FAST and grow longer and thicker in weeks? I highly recommend the Penis Advantage exercise program! This award winning program is safe, effective, and you can download everything INSTANTLY (no embarrassing stops at a store or packages to receive)!

>> For more information, click http://www.IncreasePenisSizeFast.info to learn more!

WARNING: This program is EXTREMELY effective, and I highly recommend you stop the program for 48-72 hours if you begin to grow more than an inch in a weeks time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Can men grow hair on their head as long as women can?
    Do they grow at the same rate? I'm a guy and my hair grows fast, but the length plateaus at one point.

    Some girls have hair all the way down to the middle of their back.

    Is it some sort of genetic trait? or does it just seem that way?

    • ANSWER:
      Depends what you eat and where you come from. It is same but girls do alot of stuff with their hair to make it look like that.

  2. QUESTION:
    how to increase hair thickness and how fast hair grows in men?
    Im trying to grow my hair out and it grows kind of fast but i want it to grow faster and thicker so that when i dread up my hair will already be semi long- ps i have fine hair or coarse

    • ANSWER:
      You dont want them to be long and no one starts dreads with more than 6 inches of hair. If you start with them long you will look very weird and they will take forever to lock up because dreads lock up starting from the middle. After they lock at the middle they work their way down to the ends and then lastly they lock at the roots. If your hair is long your in for a long ride. Beauty isnt cheap.

    • ANSWER:

  4. QUESTION:
    Fundamentalist Christians: If men are to have short hair, then why does a man's hair continue to grow long?
    First of all, I'm a born again Christian and I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. This is an honest question: If men are to have short hair, then why does a man's hair continue to grow long? By the way, as a medical student, I know that human hair growth has three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. This means that hair does not grow infinitely. It stops growing when it reaches a certain length. Also, testosterone (a male hormone) promotes hair growth. That's why men's hair grow faster that women's hair and men have beards. Some Fundamentalists claim that men are "created to have short hair". If this is the case, then why doesn't men's hair stop growing at a certain short length and even grows faster than women's hair? Since hair growth stops at a certain length during the telogen phase, then why doesn't men's hair stop growing at a short length? Both men and women grow hair, and their hair stops growing at a certain length. Also, how "long" is "long hair" and how "short" is "short hair"? If you're a man, can you be a good Christian in a place without barbers? what if you don't have money for haircuts? does that make you a bad person if you can't afford to cut your hair?

    • ANSWER:
      When a male child is born, he is born with all the hair he will ever grow. It is very very tightly coiled inside his head. Very gradually, throughout his life, the hair uncoils and emerges through small holes in his head, called fallibles. As the hair uncoils, it gradually frees up space inside his head for thoughts or wisdom. This is why older males are so much wiser than younger males. Cutting the hair sends small vibrations down the hair into the space in the person's head, stimulating it to start uncoiling again. Without this stimulation the hair would gradually stop uncoiling and the person would stop learning. All very simple, really.

      eat a lot of vitamin c. also your hair will grow faster in the spring and summer. don't go swimming without a hair cap because the chlorine can damage your hair. don't be stressed or worried so much because it can cause your hair to stop growing. don't do anything like a ponytail because your hair has to be comfortable to grow.

    does anybody no how to grow long hair fast!!! (for a black man)?
    i just got signed to a record label and im trying to do somthing different to my image

    • ANSWER:
      I have coarse hair that naturally grows, lol, so I'm not sure what the difference is.

      Despite what others will tell you, there isn't a way to make your hair grow faster. You'll just have to be patient. Average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month, 6 inches per year. Patience is what you need. Plus, if this deal goes through and you do come out with an album then it probably won't be for a couple of years. Good luck.

      BTW, I'd stay far away from grease. It does nothing but coat your hair and make your hair greasy. If your hair is natural then you don't need to put anything on your scalp. Those with relaxed hair have to grease or oil their scalp because relaxers dry out their hair and scalp.

      Focus on length retention, that means you need to keep your hair from breaking off and this is what's need to get your hair longer.

    why do womens hair grow twice as fast as mens hair do?
    a couple of months ago my cousin gotten a hair cut because it was too long. but then 2 months later her hair is back the way it was then it got me wondering. why do women's hair grow faster than an average man. can anybody figure that out besides a girl

    • ANSWER:
      Womens hair does not grow faster than mens. Men just get haircuts more often. Also women tend to keep their hair healthier than men and biotin helps with hair growth. It could also be the way she got it cut.. She probably got layers which might make i look shorter. Then the layers grow out more and it looks the same length as it used to be. Happens to me a lot. And also men dont notice how fast their hair grows because they get it cut more often and it doesnt seem like a lot of hair but all together it is.

      Can you really make your hair grow faster? The answer is no. The speed of growing is on your genes. But because of different factors our hair does not grow with its maximum speed. If you eliminate things that slow down hair growth, hair will grow faster. What factors slow down hair growth?

      1: Nutrition

      2: Wrong Hair Care

    can i use the stuff old men do on their hair to make it grow, to make my hair grow faster?
    i am a 14 year old girl and i have been trying to grow my hair for a long time and it just isnt growing can i use that stuff to like make my hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      I don't think so, but here some adive.

      First you should try clipping the ends of your hair. I know your trying to grow your hair but those dead ends will put an halt to your hair growth. You only need to clip less than 1/2 an inch.

      Make sure to wash your hair only two times a week. It is not necessary to wash your hair more frequent than twice a week anymore and than your washing out the natural oils that your hair produce to help grow your hair.

      Condition your hair every single day. Leave it in for 2-4 minutes and than wash it out with COLD WATER. If you are conditioning your hair on a day you are shampooing it. Shampoo first and condition after.

      Don't blow dry your hair that often because it drys the scalp out and damages the hair if not done properly. Plan your shower ahead of time to try your hair out with a towel. If you must blow dry go to the store and but an agent to help minimize damages from blow drying.

      Make sure to keep your hair and scalp moisturized. A dry head won't grow. Use moisturizing creams and oils every day. I recommend using it twice a day because as you go on with your day your hair and scalp looses moisture.

      Brush Brush Brush, why do you think the girls who brushes there hair 24/7 has long hair without even knowing why? It's because the brush help circulates the blood in your scalp and that help circulate the oxygen to allow your scalp to breathe and grow.

      Last thing is to eat a healthy diet. What you put into your body do effect the way your hair grow. Good nutrients are key. Start taking vitamins, this will help your body grow your hair. The vitamins that help hair growth are vitamins e and d.

      Hopes this help you for the future and good luck.

  23. QUESTION:
    How to get long hair fast if you're too miserable to wait for it to grow?
    As far as I know I'm in good health, thankfully, but I am so scared of getting cancer.

    I'm not sure if this is even a symptom of cancer, and I'm so embarrassed to discuss this on a public forum but my period is 5 days late and I am so scared. There's absolutely no possibility I'm pregnant; I am 29-ish so there's no way I'm going through menopause.

    I'm vain, I can't help it. I'm more afraid of losing my hair than I am of dying.

    I know that your hair grows back eventually from cancer treatments but the thought of waiting ten years for my hair to get to a decent length upsets me so much. I don't wanna look like an ugly dog for the next ten years or so. I hate short hair and I need long hair to feel like a woman. I don't even have a boyfriend now but I know that no guy on the entire planet would ever be interested in a girl with short hair. Human beings are shallow, even if I had a boyfriend he'd just ditch me for a girl with beautiful long hair.

    I can't bear not to have long beautiful hair. I'm planning to get married, not anytime soon but definitely within the next ten years!! I want my wedding day to be perfect, I want to be a beautiful bride just like I dreamed of and I need to have long hair. I don't want a crummy wig, I want long hair all my own. I can't get married looking like a doberman on my wedding day.

    I don't even know if I even have cancer or if I'm just a chronic worrier... but I hate short hair and don't wanna be miserable for ten years. I'm too miserable to wait for it to grow out.

    Is there any way to get long hair fast if you're too miserable to wait? I don't mean a crummy wig. I mean hair all your own that you can wash, straighten, etc. I mean, this is 2010, we can perform a full transplant on a man and travel to outer space, their should be a way to make hair longer fast. I am desperate.

    I haven't even gotten my symptoms checked out, and I'm not sure what's wrong with me. But I know that no one will ever think I'm pretty or be interested in me unless I have long hair, if I have to wait ten years for my hair to grow out I would rather just die. I seriously won't consider getting treated for this unless there's a way to make my hair long, fast. I don't wanna die but I don't wanna look like an ugly hound dog either. I'm so desperate, please help.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm sorry please go some where else next time.
      Hair grows about 1/2 " a month. You can speed this by taking good care of your hair and eating a well balanced diet. Eat whole grains, fruits, veggies, lean meats and low fat dairy. Make sure you are drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.
      Take prenatal vitamins, they will help with speed hair growth, and add to your over all hair health. If you are male, you can still take prenatal vitamins. Do not buy supplements sold for hair growth, they are an expensive marketing gimmick and not worth the money.
      Then invest in a good quality shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Keep the dead ends trimmed off. Make sure they understand trim before they pick up the scissors. If they pick up electric clippers, they didn't listen, so leave.
      Good Luck

Does anybody know of any other inexpensive creams that work well, or maybe a lotion that I can apply to my chest after I shave that will slow down the hair growth??? NO WAXING

      Waxing is really good, don't be such a baby, honestly it hurts less the more you do it.

      No cream in the world with slow down hair growth.

    Does mens or womens hair grow faster?
    i always thought it was mens hair because of the testorome. but if mens hair grows faster then womens, then y are women supposed to have long hair and men short hair? just to make everything more difficult? lol

    • ANSWER:
      They say women's hair grows faster but it all depends on what a person eats. Certain foods and/or take certain vitamins/supplements help along with hair growth. No one can say for sure whether a man or a woman's hair grow faster, but there are assumptions.

      Biotin is something you should take if you are wanting your hair to grow quicker.

      Also, I heard that the more you cut you hair the faster it grows back, but I can't say if this is true or not.

    Hair growth - ladies i need help on making my hair grow faster!?
    Ok i'm a guy who used to have long hair. I cut it off about 5 months ago and i miss it.

    Are there any tips on making it grow back faster? I eat alot of protein so that isn't the problem, and i eat very,very healthy.

    I wash my hair everyday w/ shampoo - i've just found out it's alot. How many times should i use shampoo, won't it look greasy w/o shampoo?

    Prenatal Vitamins? do they work, are they safe for men. How much faster does hair grow when on them.

    Massaging the scalp- does this work? How should i do this.

    Any tips will help.

    • ANSWER:
      i don't think ANY of those things would help. different shampoo, massaging the scalp, or vitamins/diet...I haven't tried the prenatal.

      you are either born with hair-that-grows-fast or you're not! i THINK that gene comes from your father. my father has thick, fast-growing hair and i have that, too. he goes to the hair dresser often. too often, if you ask me.

      i was born with hair that grows like a weed! i shave my legs and it grows back in a night!! it's kinda like men's facial hair, i guess...sucks!

      in the past, i used both shampoo and conditioner everyday. right now, i use shampoo and only conditioner on the ends. i see no difference in how fast it grows!

      i'm sorry, i have no tips. maybe the ONLY tip is time travel. for your mother to marry someone with hair that grows fast. IF YOU FIND THIS PERSON, you won't be YOU!

    • ANSWER:
      Not even my hair can do that trick!
      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you've straightened your hair in the past.

      You get all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don't make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they're pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      Foods for Healthy Hair - the website had moved, type it in.
      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…
      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     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.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      • Vitamin A - butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all contain beta-carotene.
      • Copper - oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes, and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      • Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

You should try the following product lines for your hair.

  44. QUESTION:
    What's the best way of getting my hair to grow long faster?
    My literally won't grow - of course it is, but oh, so slowly. It's enough to make me cry :/ My sister on the other hand, has to trim her fringe every 2 weeks or so it grows that fast (she's ginger/auburn if that's of any relevance). WHAT CAN I DO TO MAKE MINE GROW LIKE THERE'S NO TOMORROW?! A couple of facts about how I treat my hair if it's any help or use:

    1. It's mousey brown, wavy and almost boob length
    2. I've used a hair dryer only once since New Years, and I'm planning to use as little heat styling as possible to minimise damage/split ends/breaking etc.
    3. I wash it 2 - 3 times a week with a volume shampoo (Pantene) and condition in infrequently with Repair and Protect (also Pantene). When it dries I towel dry it, put in volume mousse by Shockwaves and put in a bit of Schwarzkopf beachy style hair stuff for hold (it's actually made for men - I think - but it works just fine :) )
    4. I am now swapping to VO5 volume shampoo and Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends deep conditioning mask.
    5. I eat healthily and drink about 2l of water per day, exercise and generally treat myself well (I try anyway). Oh, and I never use scrunchies, I always clip my hair back with big crocodile clips or something.
    6. My hair is not dyed - the only couple of times I have dyed it, I used henna.

    I have no idea if that was of any relevance, but I'm desperately, desperately trying to get my hair about waist length by the summer. The last trim I had waasss... last year in October or November. And I really don't want to trim it because to me it seems like it defies the whole objective of letting it grow, even though it supposedly helps. I'm always scared the hairdressers will lop off 2 inches or something :/ ANYWAY... Any advice, help, tips and tricks, whether through trade or experience, will be greatly, GREATLY appreciated! Thank you! :)

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!
      To get your hair to grow faster, is to have it cut! I know it sounds stupid but have the ends trimmed, to get rid of dead ends. Also do not straighten or use to much heat on your hair. It damages it and makes it grow slower. If you do straighten it then use heat protection spray. Also eat healthy and dont eat a lot of junk food (chocolate, crisps, etc.) Also don't touch too much! Hope I helped!

      I don't measure my hair per month. But from bob to waist, and cutting them 2x a year, my hair grew that fast. From freshman to HS graduation in other words. Same for a man.

      Shampoos are meant for cleaning hair, eating is for growing and you can't speed up time, nor can you speed 'perfection.' "If you have no patience, you have no right growing long hair." ~ Hair expert of the 80's.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark."

      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. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN "Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good."
      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: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood's well known hairstylist in the 80's once said: "Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair."

      If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in.
      Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.
      Growing healthy 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. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won't speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

      Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

    • ANSWER:

      How Can the Vitamins Help Me Grow Longer Hair?

      You must understand the basic principles of hair growth to understand how the hair vitamins your hair grow longer.

      Hair naturally grows about a half inch per month. It grows in three phases: growing, resting, and shedding. Each and every hair on your head must go through these three phases. Thankfully, about 90% of you hair is in the growth phase at any given time. This is why you never notice your hair going into the other phases. The growth phase can last from 2 to 6 years, and it is genetically determined before you are even born. This is why some people can grow hair down their backs, while others can only grow it to their shoulders. This is also why many women experience more hair growth during pregnancy (we explain this here).

      It works like this.......If your growth phase lasts 3 years, your hair can possibly grow 18 inches. (36 months at a half inch per month). This is the maximum because it would have to have never been cut or broken to reach this length. On the other hand, if your growth phase lasts 6 years, it will grow double that, or 36 inches. But you may say that "the growth phase is genetically determined, and you can't do anything about that". WRONG. Hair vitamins with MSM can actually increase your growth phase. If your hair vitamins also contain the nutrients known for speeding up hair growth like Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Folic Acid (B-9), etc, then your hair will not only grow longer, but faster too.

      What Makes HairFinity DIFFERENT?

      Many companies sell hair vitamins and promise longer stronger hair in a month simply from using hair vitamins alone. Customers become disappointed when their hair is not growing faster with the use of the hair vitamins. At HairFinity, we understand what it takes to grow hair its longest. We have done extensive research on hair structure and growth, hair products, etc. We know what works and what doesn't. This is why we publish lots of free information about hair growth. We do not exist to sell you information that could have a great effect on your hair growth. We want everyone to have access to this information. We want everyone to know what it really takes to grow long strong hair.

    how do you make your hair grow super long fast?
    i have hair about an inch off my shoulder and ive never really had long hair ive always had to get my cut because ive had split ends and it just wont grow and i have wavy hair so i really wanna flat iron my hair and curl it but i want my hair long so i dont have to gat a hair cut to make it short.. its been a struggle to make my hair grow long ive lokked up on the internet and ive been on youtube to try to get longer hair so now i have turn my attention to you guys please help my hair grow long fast and if you know can you tell me how long it will grow in that month thank you please help me thanks

    • ANSWER:
      First off, DO NOT straight iron/curl your hair! It may look longer or sleeker temporarily, but in time this will significantly damage your hair and cause breakage, split ends, and dryness. No-heat styling options such as using curlers or the "cold" setting on your hair dryer should work just fine.

      You hair will be healthier, stronger, and probably grow much quicker with the proper nutrition and care:

      -Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.

      -Get PLENTY of protein: fish are GREAT for this and also turkey breast, but if you are a vegetarian/vegan like me (or even if you're not), you can also dig into nuts like Almonds, Walnuts (which help to keep clear skin), beans, and plain yogurt (add a little splenda and some fresh or frozen fruit for taste).

      -Lots of vegetables: The leafy, green ones.

      -Get as close as you can to 8 hours of sleep per night.

      -Take fish oil supplements: they will help to strengthen your hair, make it shiny, soft, clear your skin, and have protein so they will nourish your hair.. Your hair is nearly ALL protein.

      -Do not wash your hair every day: Every other day is much better, if you can manage, because it will allow your hair to produce sebum and nourish itself!

      -Speaking of sebum: brush your hair with a natural boar bristle brush every night; this will also help to strengthen it

      -Use the proper shampoo: Sulfate-free shampoos are probably best. L'Oreal makes a nice line of sulfate-free shampoos. I have also heard wondrous things about using Maine N' Tail, which is technically a horse shampoo (many people use it, though, and it is sold at nearly any drug store), to help grow hair quickly.

      -Get a good deep-conditioning treatment and use it once per week or once every other week (Definitely not more than once per week).

      -Trim your hair about a half inch every month to prevent from growing split ends.. If you don't trim it, your hair will still grow, but it will not look healthy.

      All of these should help you grow your hair in no time!

      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.

      I started growing my hair 2003. I trim my hair 1" a month, 4" 2x a year, it's down to my knees now. It's also because I have good genes! My dad's actually.

      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you've straightened your hair in the past.

      You get all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don't make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they're pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      Foods for Healthy Hair - the website had moved, type it in.
      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…
      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     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.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      •Vitamin A - butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all contain beta-carotene.
      •Copper - oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes, and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

  22. QUESTION:
    do you guys know of any hair products or remedies that can make my hair grow longer fast?

    • ANSWER:
      WOW , look at that.....miss "I heart horses" there just completely stole my answer from a previous question via "copy and paste" and is passing my words off as her own.

      My answer is about the GNC UltraNourishair and ProCaps labs capsules...

      I have taken the GNC pills for 4 months and supplemented them with extra Biotin because they only have 1200 mcg of Biotin and you should try for a minimum of 2500 micrograms.

      I am switching to Procaps labs capsules when I run out of the GNC because Procaps formula has more Biotin in a more pure form with more of the trace elements that support healthy hair growth.

      I take about 5000 micrograms which equals 5 milligrams of Biotin daily and my hair is growing fast and thick and dark.

    Recipes, Pills, Products to put on hair or nails.... Help, Please. I want my hair & nails longer before school starts again in Sept. 8

    -Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair grows from your scalp, so anything you do to your actual hair will just be to prevent damage and breakage which prevent hair from getting any longer. So, the main thing is to eat healthy and take a multi-vitamin and maybe a Biotin supplement. You can also massage your scalp daily to stimulate it. Now, to prevent breakage, always condition after shampooing. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner like Nature's Gate, Alba, Shea Moisture, Burt's Bee's, etc. Shampoo hair only when you have to. Deep condition once a week. I like Redken smooth down butter treat and TBS rain forest hair butter. Coconut and olive oil work too. Be gentle when combing and brushing. Apply a leave in conditioner when hair is wet before combing out. It's best to only use a wide tooth comb. And if you have curly hair NEVER comb or brush when it's dry. Then you just have to wait, it won't happen overnight obviously.

  36. QUESTION:
    How to get long hair fast if you're too miserable to wait for it to grow?
    As far as I know I'm in good health, thankfully, but I am so scared of getting cancer.

    I'm not sure if this is even a symptom of cancer, and I'm so embarrassed to discuss this on a public forum but my period is 5 days late and I am so scared. There's absolutely no possibility I'm pregnant; I am 29-ish so there's no way I'm going through menopause.

    I'm vain, I can't help it. I'm more afraid of losing my hair than I am of dying.

    I know that your hair grows back eventually from cancer treatments but the thought of waiting ten years for my hair to get to a decent length upsets me so much. I don't wanna look like an ugly dog for the next ten years or so. I hate short hair and I need long hair to feel like a woman. I don't even have a boyfriend now but I know that no guy on the entire planet would ever be interested in a girl with short hair. Human beings are shallow, even if I had a boyfriend he'd just ditch me for a girl with beautiful long hair.

    I can't bear not to have long beautiful hair. I'm planning to get married, not anytime soon but definitely within the next ten years!! I want my wedding day to be perfect, I want to be a beautiful bride just like I dreamed of and I need to have long hair. I don't want a crummy wig, I want long hair all my own. I can't get married looking like a doberman on my wedding day.

    I don't even know if I even have cancer or if I'm just a chronic worrier... but I hate short hair and don't wanna be miserable for ten years. I'm too miserable to wait for it to grow out.

    Is there any way to get long hair fast if you're too miserable to wait? I don't mean a crummy wig. I mean hair all your own that you can wash, straighten, etc. I mean, this is 2010, we can perform a full transplant on a man and travel to outer space, their should be a way to make hair longer fast. I am desperate.

    I haven't even gotten my symptoms checked out, and I'm not sure what's wrong with me. But I know that no one will ever think I'm pretty or be interested in me unless I have long hair, if I have to wait ten years for my hair to grow out I would rather just die. I seriously won't consider getting treated for this unless there's a way to make my hair long, fast. I don't wanna die but I don't wanna look like an ugly hound dog either. I'm so desperate, please help.

    hey this is a question regarding guys trying to grow long hair!?
    hey as the "question" states i am tryin to grow long hair and im a guy
    ok one thing happened while i was tryin to grow it, a LITTLE got in my front of my eyes, and my mum and hairstylist and bunch of other random ppl said that it would "ruin" my vision so i got a trim at the front ONLY so then my hair was kinda medium long at the back while the front just touched my eyebrows
    now my hair is growing back, longer and faster and its once again in front of my eyes only a lot more

    what can i do to keep it out of there because i get pimples and shit on my forehead and thats no fun, also its not the best look lol

    kinda like that but a lot longer everywhere especially the back where its nice and messy lol
    thanks again

    • ANSWER:
      I have a similar yet opposite problem. I have long hair that I can't seem to get rid of. I want short hair but it grows back to long in about a month.

      The idea that "Long hair will ruin your vision" is absurd. If your bangs go past your eyes or don't make it to your eyes, you're fine. Tuck them behind your ears or use a full or half ponytail. (No, ponytails don't make you look like a girl. A male's ponytail is obvious".) Doing so will keep it from getting in the way of your eyes (It's kind of annoying when you're looking down or facing away from the wind and your unconstrained hair gets in front of your eyes.).

      Also, rubbing alcohol to the forehead should help clear up those pimples and keep new ones from popping up.
      Good luck!

    • ANSWER:
      Shampoos are meant for cleaning hair, eating is for growing and you can't speed up time, nor can you speed 'perfection.' "If you have no patience, you have no right growing long hair." ~ Hair expert of the 80's.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010, Vogue Feb. 2011 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, fish oil, etc. . Fish oil for example: Read the labels if they state that it contains: "one or more of the following: Cod, English Whiting, Shark."

      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. FDA has received numerous reports of harm associated with the use of these products, including stroke, liver injury, kidney failure, heart palpitations, and death. 3-15-11

      Google: MSN "Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good."
      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: Are Supplements Good For You? About 7,430,000 results (0.15 seconds). THEN Google: Are vitamins & supplements good for you? About 4,250,000 results (0.14 seconds) Some can actually shorten your life!
      Google: Hair growth caused other men nationwide in class-action lawsuits. About 1,640,000 results (0.10 second.

      Best advice from Hollywood's well known hairstylist in the 80's once said: "Keep foods in your mouth and hair products on your hair."

      If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in.
      Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results.
      Growing healthy 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. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tempered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

      Cutting your split ends yourself, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can easily spot them, using a 2" scissors, cut strand by strand, section by section, allowing new growth to take over. Then 2x a year, get a good hair cut. This won't speed things up, but it will make the hair look healthier while it's growing. Even healthy hair like mine get them, due to normal brushing & styling.

      Best answer comes from people with Avatars, showing their healthy shiny, soft, silky, smooth hair.

      Sources:
      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, started growing them in 2003. 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 to 4 years, and cut 2x a year.

      i know you didnt wanna hear get a trim but trims are good cuz it gets rid of split ends but you only need one every three months or so , and to make the wait for a trim a bit longer is that pantene split end shampoo

Grow Long Hair African American

If you have long hair, you probably need more time to get ready for work, and Moroccan Oil affords you a variety of products that will help in keeping your long hair smooth, silky, and frizz-free. These excellent hair products improve the overall health of your hair, and it's easier to achieve with Moroccan Oil. It will make your hair softer and make styling easier, at the same time.

Giving your hair a Moroccan Oil Treatment will be invigorating for your long hair and it will rehydrate it, especially if your hair is often dry. It will help in alleviating the frizzies, and it won't leave you with hair that feels oily or heavy when you are done.

Moroccan Oil works excellently as an antioxidant for your long hair. If you want your hair to look refined and radiant, it just can't be beat. You can use Moroccan Oil Shampoo before giving your hair a Moroccan Oil Treatment, so you know it's well-moisturized and clean.

If you normally wash your long hair and then let it air-dry, you probably wonder how Moroccan Oil hair products can improve your routine. So try it once, by washing your hair and then deep conditioning it with a Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask. These can even be used overnight with your hair wrapped lightly, and you'll find that your hair is smooth and shiny the next morning.

Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo is made specially for color-treated, damaged or long hair. It helps to restore your hair, however it was damaged, while it repairs and moisturizes it. This special shampoo is very rich in vital proteins and essential fatty acids, and among its ingredients is Argan oil and keratin, which are necessary for healthy hair. Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo is free from all parabens and sulfate-phosphates, and you'll enjoy using it, since it treats your long hair so gently, and restores it to a natural luster and shine.

If your long hair tends to look oily, Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner will help you out. Oily hair is usually heavier than dry or normal hair, due to the oils themselves, and this extra weight may cause some hair breakage. Tangling may also occur, so you'll be glad to know that Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Conditioner takes care of both those issues.

After you have conditioned your long hair, the Moroccan Oil XLPro Paddle Brush is one of the best to use for styling your hair. It's made with both ionic and ceramic properties, so it's durable and very strong. It will enhance your use of a blow dryer, since it retains heat with the ceramic content, to allow your hair to dry more uniformly. This will cut down on your hair styling time, which is always welcome. Additionally, the ions in the bristles work to repel water, and act as a sort of conditioner, to help smooth each strand of hair.

    How to grow African American/Mixed hair reallly long?
    I have been trying for YEARS to grow my hair long, but it doesnt work! I've tried doing loose braids, wrapping, trimming every couple of months and deep condition but nothing works. My hair is about a little past my shoulders but it hasnt "grown" at all! I also get my hair relaxed every couple of months (bc if i dont it breaks terribly) My goal is 29 inches (i know that will take a while tho) anyone have any useful tips?

  6. QUESTION:
    How to grow my african american hair long?
    Ok well I use to wear braids but, took it off in the end of April (my hair is to my shoulder) . Since then it seems like my hair has grown an inch! My hair is always moisturize. I started noticing that my hair is shedding but, I don't understand why. What should I do to stop the shedding? And I haven't straighten my hair in a month. Please help me! I want to grow my hair long.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair sheds 50-100 hairs a day. Check for little white bulbs on the ends. If there are you're fine.

      If there aren't bulbs on the ends that's breakage. Which is not okay. But, if you keep your hair moisturized and don't use heat often I doubt it's breakage. If it is check out your moisture/protein balance (read here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/278612/the_fine_art_of_protein_and_moisture.html?cat=69 ) because that's the only thing I know of that would cause it.

  7. QUESTION:
    How to grow long African American hair?
    Okay ladies with ethnic hair... How to you grow your hair long and healthy? What do you do to your hair after you wash it? (brands please) and how do you style it to keep it straight besides chemical relaxers? And how do you keep your ends moisturized?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, lemme first say that my hair is natural.. But, I think this will work for any type of African American hair. My mom is the one who knows most of the ways to grow it out.. But, she uses me as a guinea pig lol, so I know a bit.

      First, you should eat right. For example, a big mac isn't going to do a lot of good to someone's hair lol. (not saying you would eat something like that lol) :) I ate apples and almond butter for two weeks straight and my hair grew like weeds. Haha! You should eat natural and organic foods, lots of fruits and veggies.. Yeah..

      Now.. Black hair needs oils! I really don't know all of them, but this girl names some good ones (shimahair.com).. Coconut oil, sesame seed oil, peppermint oil i think... Yeah.. haha.

      And my hair.. I have it in braids, and they protect the ends (important to growth!) and keep it safe and growing! My mama feeds me and gives me the oils to put in my hair, lol... Umm.. after it's washed, it gets oiled and put back into braids.. I don't really straighten it, because I did once (flat iron with wax and/or vaseline), and it was okay, but the heat did not do it well... That is all I will say about that.. haha.

      Sorry, if my answer wasn't clear enough! Hope I helped even a little bit! =]

  8. QUESTION:
    how to grow African American hair long strong and heathly?
    im already only going to straghten/use heat in my hair once a month but wjat are som other things that can help me grow my har long strong and healthy

    • ANSWER:
      Your best bet to grow it long and strong is to make sure it's moisturized, do a protein treatment 1-4 times a month (follow the direction), and, most importantly, leave your hair alone. The less you do to it as far as combing, brushing, using heat, and styling the less likely it'll break off. If you can keep it from breaking off then you'll start seeing longer hair once a month; hair grows 1/2 inch every month. I'm able to hold on to nearly all my growth, so a couple of months pass and I can actually see that my hair has gotten longer.

  9. QUESTION:
    How Can You Grow Long African American Hair Without Braids/Weave/Extensions?
    What techniques can you use with oils, shampoos and conditioners, even moisturizers? And how fast would it grow? My hair is a little past shoulder length. And how many days is it good to flat iron and wear down a week?

    • ANSWER:
      To grow black healthy hair, you must first have to know how to take care of it. My advice is that you should wash your hair weekly, apply a reconstructor and deep condition your hair weekly. It is also very important to moisturize and seal your hair will an oil daily. Don't use too much of moisturizer and sealant because that can way down hair. I flat iron my hair only once a week, so I think either once or twice a week is okay. Just make sure when you do use heat to your hair to apply a heat protectant to hair before flat ironing. Hope this helps. For more hair tips, check out my hair blog specifically for black women on hair growth. http://blackhaircommunity.blogspot.com/

  10. QUESTION:
    is there any good helpful tips to grow african american hair long?
    my hair is not to short and not really long (shoulder length), and would like to know if there are any hair products that can help my hair grow longer? I use a satin scarf to go to sleep in and wash my hair once or sometimes twice a week (fructice sleek & shine conditioner and costco brand shampoo). My hair has grown kind of long before, but then i got it cut. SO is there any helpful hair products for african american teen girls to help my hair grow to my lower back?? HELP!

    • ANSWER:
      every black girl has gone through the phase were the hair will not grow past her shoulders. When I relaxed my hair I used http://www.growafrohairlong.com/ and followed her regimen for washing and maintaining hair and my hair grew to bra-strap length. I saw grew (past tense) because I stopped getting relaxers and am now going natural so I've been trimming my hair to get rid of the relaxed ends.
      The basic regimen was once a week:

      wash
      deep condition
      leave in
      air dry
      style (low manipulation)

      Products I would recommend are:
      Creme of nature shampoo
      Pantene Relaxed and Natural Hair Mask (conditioner)
      Neutroena Triple Moisture (conditioner)
      Aphogee 2min reconstructor (protein conditioner, to be done every 8wks.)

      other:
      -stretch your relaxer longer than the recommended 6wks to avoid over processing and breakage.
      -keep your hair properly moisturized and up off your shoulders to avoid split ends and breakage.
      -try not to manipulate the hair to much, try low manipulation hair styles like buns or braids.

  11. QUESTION:
    I want to grow long hair but im african american...?
    okay i really (REALLY) want to grow long hair since i was five ive had short hair, the thing is my hair is african american and harder to manage and whenever i look up how to grow long african american hair it always says as a transition to braid it the thing is i do not want to...at all is there any natural ways to get your hair to grow faster and be healthier?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Baby your hair...stop using heat (or at least cut back on heat usage to no more than once per week) and try to wear your hair up more. Wearing hair down all the time exposes your ends to harsh weather and fabrics, which cause split ends and will cause you to keep having to trim your ends. I'm not saying wear a bun 24/7, but do it at least a few times per week.
      2. Keep your hair moisturized...deep condition your hair once per week. If your hair is really damaged, use a deep protein treatment twice a month...if your hair is healthy, use deep protein treatments every 4-6 weeks. Also, find a leave in conditioner that your hair loves and moisturize your hair at least once a day.
      3. Eat healthier...Take a hair/skin/nail vitamin, eat a high protein diet and drink half your weight in water (ex: if you weigh 120 pounds, drink at least 60 ounces of water) and do 10 minute scalp massages daily.

      Also, do not get relaxers less than every 3 months...getting relaxers too close together means you have a better chance of getting relaxer on previously relaxed hair, which can cause breakage. Also, make sure to trim any damaged/split ends you have now so they don't travel up the hair strand and make you have to cut more.

      Have patience because hair can take a long time to grow and good luck :]

    • ANSWER:
      Since you are transitioning and you also want to grow your hair long, protective styles and styles that require low manipulation are your best bet. It sounds like you already have a good routine or regimen going on with how often you wash your hair and deep condition it. Two great resources you may want to look into using are NaturallyCurly.com and CurlyNikki.com. I've used them from the moment I started transitioning to now when I am nearly two years into my natural journey, I've used both sites and they're great. I've given you the links to both websites' transition sections. I hope this helps!

  14. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to grow african american hair 8 inches in 2 years?
    That is my long term goal. I need advice from experienced people. My hair is shoulder length now. I've just got a relaxer and my ends trimmed. Usually my hair is very dry. (my mom compares it to straw, sigh...) I've used lots of different shampoos like pantene, doo gro, dove, tresemme and they all seem to dry my hair out more. No oils seem to penetrate my hair and scalp except baby oil. I really need some help. I heard that Mane n tail products work good for dry hair and scalp. Is this true for african american hair? I also discovered this site: www.growafrohairlong.com which said that braiding hair helps it grow and holds moisture. Who should I believe? Any other suggestions.
    Oh! and I drink tons of water and my diet is well balanced. I don't know what's wrong with me...

    • ANSWER:
      I think i know a product that will help your hair.It is called wild growth hair oil and it makes the hair really soft . I braided my hair for a year along with using the product and it really repaired the damage. You can get more information from wildgrowth.com

  15. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for African-American hair to grow?
    I am half black and asian and my hair grows a little bit faster then most black people cause it's less curlier and tighter then theirs but I just recently cut my hair to atleast my clavicle and i really want it to grow back, so what can i do? and how long does it take. and does relaxers affect my hair growth?

    • ANSWER:
      On the average, most hair grows at about half an inch a month. Take it from there.

      You are saying you want hair to grow faster, and then you said you want it longer. That is two different things.

      Since you have curl in your hair, while it may be growing a lot, it doesn't LOOK as if it is much longer -- the curl pulls up some length. You recognize that. Of course, if you take a coiled spring and pull it out straight, it is quite long. But coil it back up and it is quite short. The same length, but not as much volume or taking up the same amount of space. Perception is everything when it comes to hair.

      Your hair is always growing. It will get back to the length it was. You just have to wait. There is nothing wrong with getting it cut -- there was a reason you cut it that much. I find it at a good length to do things with...longer and it gets too hard to handle. Enjoy this new look!!

      Relaxers make the hair straighter, and is a whole different thing. It has its own problems. You may not want that.

      Sorry, but you can't do much more than you have. Your hair is growing.... just leave it alone.

    I'm only 13 and my hair is around my neck area and I want it to grow.

    • ANSWER:
      check videos on youtube about growing relaxed natural or texturized hair.
      If your really 13 i would stop relaxing/ perming your hair, get braids, kinky twist etc. So when you get in high school then come prom and graduation you will have a head full of lusious natural hair.

  20. QUESTION:
    How do you grow long african american hair in just a few months?
    the product that i am using now is carol's daughter lisa's hair elixer

    • ANSWER:
      *Vitamin- Biotin, Chlorella, Vitamin E

      *Exercise Daily - Helps increase blood circulation.

      *Replacing Shampoo W/ Conditioner - Shampoos, even if it claims to be 'conditioning' will almost always dry out your hair to some extent, causing are already naturally-dry hair to be more prone to tangles and breakage. "Co-wash" (wash hair with shampoo) instead.

      *Massaging Your Scalp - Also helps blood circulation, awakens your follicles.

      *Carefully Combing/Detangling - Black hair is naturally VERY fragile, relaxed or not. Often running a comb through it can break it, damaging it, making it shorter. If you must detangle, detangle when your hair is wet, and soaked in conditioner. Comb from the ends to the root.

      *Be careful as to not use too much product on your scalp. (Oiling, 'greasing' your scalp is not necessary, you hair will produce it's own natural oils) Too much product on the scalp can clog the pores.

      *Sealing - Oil is a sealant (not necessarily a moisturizer), so after you condition, seal the moisture with something like Avocado Oil or Olive Oil. This will help the mositure last longer.

      *Get trims once every 10-12 weeks if your hair is natural, every 6-8 weeks if your hair is relaxed.

      *Read the ingredient list - ingredients such as petroleum jelly (vaseline, used in a lot of products in the Black market), alcohol (used in some shampoos and oil sheen, dires out hair) should be avoided.

      *Wear protective styles often to retain your length, helping it stay long
      - Wig/Half Wig (http://www.youtube.com/muffinismylovers has tutorials)
      -Braids/Micros
      -Quick Weave (as long as no glue touches your hair, [use seran wrap]!)
      -Sew In Weave (make sure it is taken down professionally and a net is used)
      - Phoney Ponytail baggy method (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5fXmaiDj70)

      *Great kitchen products to put in your hair
      -Olive Oil (good sealant)
      -Honey (smoothes hair, makes it softer and easier to manage [rinses out great])
      -Mayonnaise (best deep conditioning treatment ever!)

  21. QUESTION:
    how long does it take for african american hair to grow?
    im black(and proud of it) and my hair just will not grow what are some tips or ways to make my hair grow long and purtyy :)

    • ANSWER:
      Our hair doesn't grow any slower than any other rate. It grows at an average of 1/2 a month. Not matter what you are doing to your hair it is growing. What is probably happening is that you are not retaining length. This could be because of bad hair care practices.

      I suggest that you do a search on the Internet for black hair care, join the web group and get some tips that are specific to your hair.

      Some things I can suggest immediately are:

      1. Wash your hair at least once a week - be certain to use a conditioner. Don't be afraid of "reverting" your relaxer.

      2. Use less heat.

      3. Protect your ends by using moisturizers and natural oils to seal in the moisture.

      4. Change your diet, eat fruits and vegetables and drink the daily recommended amount of water at least 8 - 8 oz glasses of water a day.

      If you are looking for a grow quick route, you may consider taking vitamins such as biotin w/a B vitamin, MSM, silica, or prenatal vitamins.

      Like I said search the Internet - there are so many black hair care sites, you are bound to find one that gives great instruction and inspiration to grow your hair long and pretty.

      I've included the link to one below.

  23. QUESTION:
    How do you make african american hair grow long ?

    • ANSWER:
      OMG! Isn't that the question! While I certainly don't have the clear cut absolute answer to that, I'll pass along what I've learned in my own quest for long luscious hair. An aricle I read said, "Hair growth depends on a lot of things, and there is no quick fix or magic pill to grow hair. For one thing, the rate at which your hair grows and how long it may get depends a great deal on genetics." (http://www.blackhairmedia.com/article_hair_vitamins_1.htm) It goes on to say nutrition, using the right products and a good regimen, an little stress all play a part in healthy growth.
      I know for a fact that styles that burn your scalp, dry out you hair, and pull out hair (like too tight pony tails and micro braids) cause all types of problems like traction alopecia. I suffered from some of those problem myself.
      I'd say make sure your products have lots of good protein rich food extracts and oils, take a multi vit or hair vitamin to close any gaps you may have in your diet, and moiturize and condition your hair well.

      Watch out for this stuff in your store bought products

      Of course none of these people are the authority on growing Black hair, but everyone pretty muchis on the same page with about the same information. You can't use what everyone uses, because not everything works for everybody, but it comes down to "Garbage in, garbage out" with your hair and body, I feel. Put stuff that works in your hair, and healthy stuff in your body, and baby your hair when styling and you should get positive results. Hope that helps.

  24. QUESTION:
    How Can I make african american Hair grow long and healthy?

    • ANSWER:
      Take care of your hair do not over process or over manipulate. Also drying with a blow dryer is drying and bad for the hair, also straightening with a hot comb/flat iron/ or perms will damage the hair. Go to a website called long hair and they also have good tips.

  25. QUESTION:
    how long does it take to grow african american hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Like the others said, you'll get 1/2 inch per month of growth from the scalp. This adds up to 6 inches per year. If you're not seeing 6 inches of added length in a years time then you've definitely had some breakage over the year. If you have considerably less than 6 inches of extra length then you're experiencing constant breakage. Breakage is the number one cause for why people can't get longer hair. This has nothing to do with growth from the scalp and it has everything to do with keeping your hair from breaking off. If the breakage is really bad then your hair will end up getting shorter.

      I cut my hair to about 1/3 of an inch almost two years ago and because I've been able to take good care of it and keep breakage to a minimum my hair is almost at my arm pits. It's growing an average of 1/2 inch per month and I've been able to retain nearly all my length with only a little bit of breakage, and sometimes I've had a lot of breakage when I've neglected my hair.

      Take care of your hair. Don't comb, brush, or heat it too much. Don't do tight hair styles. Don't use relaxers regularly. Many blacks don't realize that blacks have the most fragile hair of any race and it easily breaks. They put harsh chemicals in their hair frequently and they try to rip the smallest comb through their hair or harshly comb/brush it. They wear tight braids and weaves and glue half wigs to their scalps. They don't realize that doing these things makes their hair break off and this is why you see few blacks with mid back to waist length hair.

      Unfortunately, many blacks who are unable to get their hair long start thinking that blacks just can't grow long hair. In reality, those blacks don't realize that what they're doing to their hair is so damaging that it's causing it to constantly break off, which is keeping it from getting longer. Also, relaxers further weaken your fragile hair, so after years of relaxing your hair might start breaking off from the strong chemicals alone.

    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Depends, is your hair relaxed? If so, it is because of the relaxer. Your hair stops growing at your shoulders because your ends are brushing against your clothes and breaking off at your shoulders. It commonly happens with relaxed women, that is why we mainly see shoulder length hair in relaxed black women. My hair was shoulder length for three years until I noticed it was the relaxer and I began transitioning to natural hair. I am not saying you have to transition but you have to retain the growth you have. Think about it, if your hair wasn't growing then you (if you are relaxed) wouldn't have to get touch ups, right? Well pretty much, keep your hair off of your shoulders. Get protein treatments every 4 to 6 weeks which is needed in hair for strength (ORS makes something called Hair Mayo, or you can use Aphogee products). Another thing when combing your hair, comb from the ends to the roots and trim your ends every 8 to 12 weeks. Do not use heat or dyes and if you chemically relax your hair try to stretch as long as possible. You can try this product called Nioxin vitamin, a lot of women have gotten great results (black women too!) and they talk about it on this hair blog site. Check it out.

  30. QUESTION:
    On average, how long does it take african american hair to grow?
    I've never gotten a haircut before. I"m 13 and i have to get my "split ends" cut. I've never had this done before, and people are saying they're going to have to cut at least 2 inches of my hair because that's how bad my split ends are.

    I have to get this done no matter what. but can anyone tell me around how many weeks/months my hair might take to grow the two inches back?

    Like a time frame?

    • ANSWER:
      Well, anytime your hair is curly (like ours) it may seem like a long time for it to grow back after its been cut. As our hair grows, it curls up and therefore seems short.
      Take one of your curls and stretch it out. See how long your hair really is? Now let the curl go and look how short it looks! If you were to give every person with straight hair a tight, curly perm, their hair would look much shorter too.
      Depending on how tightly curled the hair, those of us with natural curls may just have to wait a little longer to see a noticeable difference in length (especially if your hair is very tightly curled!).
      But no worries!! Healthy hair is ALWAYS beautiful no matter the length!! So take good care of your locks!! Use a good detangler and carefully comb out kinks and knots. NEVER pull or force the comb through your hair. You'll cause breakage and your hair will take longer to grow because of the ends will keep breaking off. (On DRY HAIR, I like Johnson's NO MORE TANGLES spray detangler -- usually in baby care aisle).
      Also, keep your hair clean and moisturized. African-American hair does NOT need to be washed everyday. Our hair tends to be a little drier than other people's hair. So usually a gentle wash once or twice a week will suffice. Use a GENTLE shampoo that moisturizes and detangles, and a good conditioner. And be very gentle with wet hair. Hair is weakest when wet!!
      If your hair is a very coarse/kinky afro-texture, you may want to try John Freida's Frizz-Ease Extra Strength Formula (for kinky/coarse hair). Try this for a soft, wavy look: After washing, towel-dry hair. Split your hair in small sections (4-8 sections) all over your head. One section at a time, re-wet your hair (I use a little spray bottle of water) and use a little Frizz Ease. Gently comb out the section, and twist or braid it. (The Frizz Ease may make your hair dry and brittle! Before twisting, I use a little Profective Break-Free Daily Leave-In Strengthener, especially on the ends). Wear a satin sleep cap to bed. In the morning, use a little more Profective on the ends, then GENTLY undo the twists/braids and finger-comb. Your hair should be soft and wavy! (You may need to use a little detangle spray to undo the twists/braids).

      I can TOTALLY relate! My hair would only grow to a certain length and then break at the ends.

It's all uneven and not healthy at all. i get irritated because sometimes it hard to put in a ponytail. i want my long hair back anything will help. thanks

    • ANSWER:
      first off, get your ends clipped, this will get rid of dead ends

      second, conditioning is the key, every time u wash your hair, use a conditioner as well. also try deep conditioning treatments

      usually african american hair is dry, as is the scalp, so oils are essential (i really love products with olive oil or avocado in them)

      lastly, avoid doing un-natural things to your hair (flat-ironing, putting in ponytails (they actually can break off your hair), putting excessive chemicals/products in your hair, etc.)

      Good luck & be patient, you will get your beautiful, long hair back

    How to grow long african american hair fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Be aware - Don't be sold on the pretences that their are products designed for your hair type to help 'grow it faster'. The cold hard truth & reality - It's just a marketing gimmick. However there are claims that there are healthy home remedy alternatives, and while I've never tried them to prove whether they are worth their time it maybe something you may want to look into. See this link: On natural ways to grow african american hair faster.

      http://www.google.com.au/#sclient=psy&hl=en&q=How+to+grow+african+american+hair+faster&aq=0c&aqi=g-c1g3g-b1&aql=&oq=&pbx=1&fp=50f04cf9144e4f5d and explore what works for you. Remember what works on other people ma not necessarily work on you and vice versa.

      Also try this link about hair growth rate for african american hair:
      http://www.google.com.au/#hl=en&xhr=t&q=The+rate+of+hair+growth+for+african+american+hair&cp=45&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=The+rate+of+hair+growth+for+african+american+hair&pbx=1&fp=50f04cf9144e4f5d

      As for designed products - Just be aware there are so many scams out there claiming the help your hair grow faster.

      Unfortunately your hair is the slowest growing hair type there is.

      Time, a good healthy diet, scalp stimulation through regular massage & combing, fresh air and exercise will help your hair to respond better to healthier growth of your hair but as I said earlier... nothing will speed up your hair growth.

  42. QUESTION:
    How long did it take your natural (African American) Hair to grow out?
    I just wanted to hear some stories of how long it took for people to see results they were happy with since they underwent the BIG CHOP.
    Yea and I know all about individuals, genetics all that. Thats why I said i wanted to hear stories. Please don't tell me that Im different because I didnt ask how to grow it out I!!

    • ANSWER:
      I did the big chop in March of 2003 after 7-8 months of transitioning. My hair is now about 4-5 inches past my shoulders, but you can only see that if I wear it straight. Any other time it is just a big, thick, puff.

      I think I was happiest with my hair shorter because I could very easily wash and go. Now my wash and gos take a little more time and preparation unless I was a lot of tangles.

      My hair was about 1-2 inches when I did the BC. It grew about .5-1 inch a month, and I trim often. So I really liked my hair at about 4-5 inches, around 8 months after my big chop. It was enough to pull back into a puff, and still very low maintenance.

  43. QUESTION:
    how to grow african american hair fast and long?

    • ANSWER:
      Wrap it, dont apply heat often, the less the better.

      Also, try buying Vitamin E gel capsules from the store, make sure they are gel capsules. Take a pin and poke a hole in the capsule, squeeze the Vitamin E onto the tip of your fingers, apply to scalp, kind of greasy, but it works like no other. Its been a remedy for me, my child, my grandmother who was bald from her medication, it really does work. Let me know if that doesnt help or if you need more.

      Another thing is dont try too many things on the hair, could stress it out and cause even more breakage. Give it time and it will grow. Rest is the most important thing you could do for hair. Extensions are good ways to allow the hair to rest and usually it grows healthy when extensions are used and applied correctly.

      Keep your scalp clean, no grease or anything that contains petroleum or mineral oil, they hinder growth... what you need are all natural oils and water based oil lotions.

      Do not use Pantene Relaxed and Natural, its pure crap, try Creme of Nature, or Paves, they work so much better.

      you have to invest in quality conditioners and lay off styling for awhile, also limit heat styling, it'll cause breakage.

    How to make African American hair grow?
    I'm 3/4 African American and 1/4 Indian and my hair used to be long past my shoulders when I was a kid but I had to get it cut because I let people play in my hair and they tangled it up but know I'm 13 almost 14 and my hair has been cut since I was like 9 or 10 but it doesn't want to grow back how do I make it grow back?
    I have micro braids right now!

    • ANSWER:
      You hair is always growing. if it wasnt you would be bald! What you need to focus on it retaining length. most likely the reason you do not see length is because you hair is breaking off.
      you need to assess the reason why your hair is breaking off. it it frequent relaxers? too much heat? not enough moisture?
      here are some site that are great resources on how to help you attain the length you want
      www.longhaircareforum.com
      www.blackhairmedia.com

      in these site they have black women (mixed and unmixed( with who are in the process of attaining or already have long hair. i find them a great encouragement and a great source of information. remember to look on the forums!

  47. QUESTION:
    how to grow african american hair longer?
    Hi i"ve been trying to grow my hair but it get a certain length then break. my hair is to my shoulders a little pass. but i dont know how to take care of it. like how many time should i brush or shampoo. i need some tips on how to keep my hair up.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm in the same process, but I've finally found my way (I think).
      First off remember that some of the answers you get here may work for the people who provided them, but not for you. Our hair is as diverse as our skin colors, and you have to find what works for YOU.

      That said, there's a VERY INFORMATIVE article I've linked at the bottom that explains the Do's very thoroughly and correctly, So I'll just share my experience really quickly.

      A few months ago I saw a new beautician who "relaxed" my hair then "trimmed" about three inches off. I was pissed. Fast forward a month: I've researched a lot and found natural shampoos/conditioners that work for me, invested in a CHI flat iron, and made sure to wash and deep condition my hair every week. What I would notice though is that my hair had grown. A LOT. Within a month there was about an inch and a half of new growth with no relaxer. But my hair wasn't any longer. I didn't get it.

      Then I realized that my hair GREW perfectly fine (pretty fast actually), I just (like you) had no idea how to take care of my ends, and it would break off at about the same place. Now I make sure to moisturize ends nearly every day. I use Nutiva Coconut oil (its cheap and extremely good for your hair) and comb it through. Make SURE to keep your ends moisturized. Never use a product with petrolatum, or mineral oil or alcohol.

      My hair is growing beautifully and it FEELS amazing. Good Luck, and I hope this article explains it all!!

  48. QUESTION:
    How to grow african american hair fast?
    My cousin has previously permed her and she now has hair up to neck length and now shes planning on growning it to her shoulders and Im wondering how long will that be and what are the steps I already know you have to make sure to moisture and stuff what else

    • ANSWER:
      just because shes planning to grow her hair that long doesnt mean it will reach that legnth. permed hair is unpredictable sometimes, it is easy to mess up, perms dry the hair out and the hair isnt as strong and it breaks off when handled too much. but i used to have one and i had hair below my shoulders and i just kept my scalp clean (washing every 2 weeks) and oiled (then i was using any old grease now i use only hair oils like tea tree/olive oil/vitamin e etc) and i wrapped it almost every night and used oil sheen on it every night before i tied it up and my hair was pretty and long (for african american hair anyway!) also i didnt perm very often, i only get a perm like once every 3 months instead of once a month like everyone else.

  49. QUESTION:
    how can i grow long healthy african american hair??
    i have short hair (about chin length)..i purchased a CHI iron in september.in addition tracks(hair extensions) and microbraids also damaged my hair.i also perm my hair every 4-5 weeks.after numerous trims and a haircut, i went from shoulder length to chin length.

    i am planning on getting scalp braids and stop getting perms.i would like to grow it past my shoulders by next year(2008)...if that isnt enough time how long will it take to past my shoulders??

    i would like to do this without expensive products or products ordered on the internet.i would rather things that i could do at home or purchase from a drugstore or walmart.i am young and I dont have a job!(LOL)...

    can someone help me please!!!THANKYOU!!!

    • ANSWER:
      always deep condition and dont apply heat to your hair regularly, wrap it and then just try to use a light oil for the hair and a good conditioning grease for the scalp. if you can go natural and then after you get to the length you want, gt the perm. i mean, my hair was beneath my shoulders, i cut to my chin, then all off to only the pin curl lenght, then i cut the perm out to go natural and i've been twisting, wearing cute afros, and just doing the natural thing for going on three years now, and my natural hair is below my shoulders again, well when i blow it out it is.

  50. QUESTION:
    Has anybody tried anything from beauty 4 ashes, on african american hair?Tips to grow african american hair?
    Im probably going to buy the ADP Chinese Herbals Advanced System and i wanted to see if anybody liked it or used it and it worked. I am part african american and i go to the hair dresser and condition and cut every 3 to 4 weeks. Its at my neck almost and i want it to grow longer any tips?
    I also perm it

    • ANSWER:
      I'd suggest not trimming it so much because that's helping to create the problem you're dealing with - hair that's not getting longer. Your hair is growing an average of 1/2 inch per month and you're getting your hair trimmed every month, so you're basically negating your new growth! Tame those split ends ONLY when you notice them and if you take good care of your hair then you won't have much splits, if any, to trim. http://biracialhair.org/TheRules.aspx (at the very bottom she mentions split ends and you might want to follow some of the advice on her site to avoid them). She also offers advice on how she grew long healthy hair after years of never being able to retain length beyound an afro.

      I wouldn't spend that kind of money on those products. You need to learn how to take care of your and that means dispelling the myths about black hair such as needing grease or a perm in order to grow long hair or to "tame it." Blacks have the most fragile hair type of any race and it easily breaks off, so you have to be extremely gentle with your hair if you want to retain length and see it get longer. That means you have to sometimes do protective styles like braids and buns, you can't always use heat which causes damage and breakage, and you have to be very cafeful with how you handle your hair when you comb and brush it; you have to be VERY gentle with it. I could never figure out why I couldn't grow a bang and I eventually learned that it was the way I was brushing my hair that lead to it constantly breaking off. Also, some people's hair don't take too well to the chemicals and they find that they're able to grow long and healthy *natural* hair because the chemicals in the perm is what's breaking it off.

      If you're using grease then switch to oiling your hair with a natural oil like jojoba or coconut, for example. These won't clogg your pores as much as grease. Clogged pores hampers hair growth. You might want to wash and condition your hair more regularly to keep your hair and scalp clean. I used to wash mine once a week when I was relaxed, now that I'm natural I wash 1-3 times a week. Hot oil treatments strengthen your hair, so when you do things that can damage your hair your hair can withstand some of it. You can use regular olive oil and heat it and massage it through your hair for a few minutes and rinse - do this before you shampoo/condition.

      Beyond taking good care of your hair, you need patience, because your hair will grow about 6 inches per year, most people fall within the average (1/2 inch per month, 6 inches per year).

      There's a lot of advice over the Internet about how to properly care for your hair so it can be long and healthy. The long hair care forum has lot of long haired naturals and relaxed people who take care of their own hair (mid-back and waist-length). Visit that forum and get advice about products and regimines.

      Good luck!

Grow Long Hair Fast

Let's be frank, here - if you're looking to buy Mira Hair Oil it's not going to be cheap. Its makers also claim it will solve just about every hair problem under the sun. Are they right? Is any hair product that good? I've written this short review of my own experience to help other women decide if this product can help them.

First off, what exactly are the makers actually claiming it can do? Well, it's a pretty long list! They're claiming it can solve a variety of problems including:

*Make thin, weak-growing hair grow quicker, thicker and stronger.

*Restore damaged hair.

*Make rough, dry hair smooth, silky and shiny.

*Scalp problems like dandruff.

*Protect your hair against heat, dry and other harmful elements.

What's the verdict? Well, I've been using it for about two weeks now, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. My once dull, dry, lifeless hair is now smooth, soft and bouncy - so much so, I've been getting quite a few compliments (nothing like a compliment to give your self-esteem a boost!). So far, so good.

But what about my other main issue? You see, my hair is also rather thin and just doesn't grow as thick and strong as I'd like. Well, it's really too early to tell. I think given time, it may well grow better. I'll know in another month or so.

All in all, I'd say Mira Hair Oil is a pretty impressive product. It's made my hair much more silky, attractive and easy to manage. If you have any hair problems that don't seem to respond to other products, I'd say give it a go. It comes with a 60-day money-back guarantee - if you don't like it for any reason, just ask for a refund.

      you could use a shampoo from walmart that specializes in hair growth or hair repair (remember, good hair health is essential to growing it out. you could also buy a hair growth treatment, which you can also get at walmart. or you can get it at your local beauty supply store.
      also try to wear your hair in a tight ponytail when your just lounging around your house. this tuggs on your hair follicles and stimulates growth.

    What's the best way to grow long hair fast?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want hair to grow faster or more healthy, you have to take supplements that work on your body chemistry to support hair's growth and strength at its genesis.....once it has grown out, it is just dead keratin
      Try GNC, they make a supplement called " Ultra Nourishair" in formulas for men and women..they are HUGE pills and you have to take 2 daily. There is also a "Hair skin and nails" formula from Andrew Lessman that you can google, that has great ingredients and is easier to swallow, made by ProCaps labs. You can also take large doses of Biotin, sometimes called Vitamin H, take no less than 2500 micrograms daily to support healthy hair growth. It may take 6 to 8 weeks to see results.
      have taken the GNC pills for 4 months and supplemented them with extra Biotin because they only have 1200 mcg of Biotin and you should try for a minimum of 2500 micrograms.

      I am switching to Procaps labs capsules when I run out of the GNC because Procaps formula has more Biotin in a more pure form with more of the trace elements that support healthy hair growth.

      I take about 5000 micrograms which equals 5 milligrams of Biotin daily and my hair is growing fast and thick and dark.

    how to grow long hair fast?
    I recently had a hair cut and sort of hate it, i look better with longer hair. I want to grow hair lenghthier faster? Please help me with tips... Cheers

    • ANSWER:
      My hair grows pretty fast. I've been trimming my ends every 4 months according to a lunar phase method. Depending on what you'd like your hair to do, say... beautify, lengthen, thicker, or root work. Make an appointment at your salon to trim you ends on that specific day. I've been doing this for about 5 years now and has definitley worked for me. You can find this Lunar Phase Chart at: morroccomethod.com. Look for the "lunar chart and hair care" link.

      According to this chart, your next trimming day should be next June 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.

  23. QUESTION:
    How can i make my hair grow long fast?
    i have wanted long hair for a really long time but my hair grows sooo slow!! does anyone know some type of home remedy or anything to speed up the growth of my hair so i can grow it long? thanks!

    • 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!

  27. QUESTION:
    How do you make hair grow long fast?
    what's a good way to make your hair grow really long fast? I've heard prenatal pills work, but is there any other way? And does it actually work?

    • 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!

    • ANSWER:
      Go to your local drug store. Get a vitamin that is high in potassium. Even a women's or teen's one a day vitamin is something you should be taking.

      also get your dead ends of your hair trimmed every now and then. And don't over wash your hair.

      try looking up styles to deal with the haircut ur mom has for the time being. you would be surprised how different u can make something look by changing or adding something.

  30. QUESTION:
    How can I make my hair grow long fast ?
    My hair is about an inch longer than shoulder length and I would like to grow it out to at least 3 or 4 inches longer than it is now. I straighten my hair everyday and my hair is pretty dead. I have dead ends and split ends but whenever I trim my hair it is just short again then by the time it gets 'long' i have to cut it to get rid of the dead ends. I don't know how to make it grow long fast. Please help!
    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Wow, first off to start this process, you need to get your hair trimmed to get the split ends off otherwise it will continue to get worse and your hair will never grow bc it will just keep breaking off. You should always have regular trims for that reason, especially if you are trying to grow it out. Secondly, stop flat ironing your hair so much. Any kind of heat you use does some damage. But if you must flat iron, do not do it everyday, do not turn the heat all the way up, and always, always you a heat protector. Your hair will not grow if you don't keep it healthy.
      After all of that, keep up on your trims by asking your stylist for a "dusting" off your ends. it will not take off any length. You can also start taking a vitamin. GNC sells vitamins made specifically for hair, skin and nails. If you can get that, a multivitamin will work, just not as well.
      And you need patience. If this is want you want to do, get and keep your hair healthy. and just be patient, don't give up and cut it off.
      Good luck

  36. QUESTION:
    What are some ways to grow long hair fast?
    I want long hair really bad. What are some ways to speed up the process?

    • ANSWER:
      There really is no true way to make your hair grow faster. On average, the hair on your head will grow somewhere between a half an inch to an inch a month, so you can do the math and figure about how long it will take for your hair to grow to the desired length. More importantly however, the healthier you and your hair are will play a large role in achieving a head full of healthy long hair (nobody looks good with long hair when it is dry, frizzy, and full of split ends).
      For best results:
      - Avoid heat styling (blow dryer, curling iron, straightener) as these will dry your hair out and make it prone to breakage.
      - Shy away from any chemical exposure such as permanents or coloring, and use as few styling products as possible, these again dry out your hair and promote breakage.
      - Rubber bands, ponytail holders with metal in them and such can cause breakage too - use carefully.
      - Take a look at your hair brush - the best brush for your hair is an all natural boar bristle brush. These are less likely to rip or break hair, and also distribute the naturally occuring oils in your hair evenly from root to tip to protect from damage.
      - Scrutinize your shampoos and conditioners - expensive is not always better but there are many mid-priced brands that are excellent choices. Though some may claim to repair split ends (impossible) they are nevertheless at least good for protecting your hair.
      - Get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks. Yes, I realize it sound like a bit of an oxymoron when you are trying to GROW hair, but trimming off a small amount of damaged ends can help prevent that damage from moving upwards on the strands of hair.
      - Most importantly: Healthy hair grows on healthy bodies! Eat a well balanced diet, drink plenty of water, and take a good multivitamin/multimineral supplement.

      Happy hair growing to you!

  37. QUESTION:
    I want to grow long hair fast?!?
    I'm 14, and my hair is already long, well 3 inches or about, past shoulders. I brush, shampoo, condition everyday, and usaully straighten my hair everyday. What can I do to make my hair grow fast?

    • ANSWER:
      To be honest, there's no real way of making it grow quickly - but you're probably damaging it by straightening it every day. There's also no real need to shampoo and condition your hair every day unless it is very thin, in which case it may never get extremely long at all - even washing it every other day would allow it to have its own natural oils which are good for it.

      My hair is waist-hip length - I don't do much with it, shampoo every other day, condition every other wash, get split ends trimmed off regularly so they don't split the whole way up the hair. I don't generally use any heat on it either.

      Hope this helps you :)

  39. QUESTION:
    Grow Hair Long fast- which shampoo should i use?
    I am hoping to stimulate my hair growth, hopefully have it grow more than 1/2 inch per month. I already know about biotin and healthy diet and home remedies and exercise and a bunch of other stuff (i've done my research) but i was wondering which brand of shampoo is best to promote long hair? Ex. garnier length and strength, pantene? Any of the basic brands i can find at my local drugstore or grocery is what i'm looking for. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It may grow very slowly or none at all if you've straightened your hair in the past.

      You get the strength & all your vitamins & minerals & proteins FREE from the good foods you eat from Mother Nature, not made by man like John Frieda or GNC, and no shampoo can help grow hair, not even those made for horses. Horses don't abuse their hair, using heating tools, and they eat better than people, but it won't add more hair & make their hair longer faster.Shampoo intended for animals may contain insecticides or other medications for treatment of skin conditions or parasite infestations such as fleas or mange. These must never be used on humans.
      Prenatal vitamins don't make your hair grow. Pregnant women have to start taking care of their bodies when they're pregnant, meaning stop smoking, drinking, dyeing or perming their hair SO OF COURSE their hair start growing again. But it has nothing to do with their hair, it has something to do to help the development of their unborn child.

      "Foods for Healthy Hair" - the website had moved, type it in. Two others also:

      http://www.menshealth.com/spotlight/hair/best-food-for-healthy-hair.php
      Fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grains all supply B-complex vitamins, like biotin, folic acid and vitamin B12, as well as vitamin A, copper and zinc, which are all necessary for remedying dry, brittle hair and nourishing a healthy scalp. Some prime examples of foods that contain these nutrients for healthy hair include:
      ·                     Folic Acid - asparagus, beets, broccoli, avocados, Brussels sprouts, beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, oranges, fresh peas, turkey and spinach.
      ·                     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.
      ·                     Vitamin B12 - foods rich in vitamin B12 include animal protein (such as beef, lamb, and veal), clams and oysters, liver, fish, milk, and egg yolks.
      ·                     Vitamin A - butter, egg yolks, fish, fortified milk, organ meats (such as
      liver), and dark green, orange, red, and yellow fruits and vegetables, which all
      contain beta-carotene.
      . Copper - oysters and other shellfish, whole grains, beans, nuts, potatoes and organ meats are good sources of copper. Dark leafy greens, dried fruits such
      as prunes, cocoa, black pepper, and yeast are also sources of copper in the diet.
      •  Zinc – beef, eggs, liver, pork, poultry, and oysters. Also is also abundant in other high-protein foods, like cheese, legumes and nuts.
      If having a lush, beautiful mane of healthy hair is important to you, don’t just look to hot oil treatments and shine emollients. Eat these foods for healthy hair and say “bye-bye” to bad hair days.

      http://health.yahoo.com/experts/healthie…

      The reason why prenatal pills work, is because when someone starts having babies, they stopped damaging their hair, so their hair finally starts growing again, it's not because of the pills.

      Hair straightening tools CAN stop or slow the hair down, if not hair fall. Supplements can also slow down the hair growth, because you don't know what else is added to them.

  47. QUESTION:
    How to make my hair grow long fast?
    My hair is a little bit shorter than my shoulders. And i want to grow it past my shoulders by the end of school year.......... can anybody tell me how to make it grow fast and healthy? thanks(:

    • ANSWER:
      well first of all if you have layers you need to get all your hair as close to the same length as possible. then you should trim your hair about a half inch every three months. this will keep it healthy and no dead ends therefor your hair will grow faster! also dont wash your hair every day. this may sound gross but the less you wash your hair, the faster it grows. you can actually train your hair to not have to wash it that often. wash it every other day for a while and then make it every three days. your hair will eventually get to where it doesnt get dirty/oily for a couple days. whering your hair up in a tight pony tail also causes your hair to grow quicker because its pulling at it from the roots. try not to use too much heat on your hair or anything that will damage it. if you do then use heat protectant spray on it.

      Something else you can try [you may not want to do this] but if youre up for it, like i said about not washing your hair as often, ive actually read up about something that said if you go three weeks without washing your hair at all then you wont even need to wash it any more. we always rip the natural oils from our hair that we need from washing it. so if you dont wash it for three weeks your hair will be even more healthy and look better than it did before and it will grow 10 times faster... but like i said you may not want to do this. if not than just do all the other stuff i said and you will have long beautiful hair in no time! good luck! :)

    How do you grow long hair fast!?
    I used to have long curly locks but now i made a bad mistake and cut it too short i cant wait several months to have it grow back what do i do!?

    • ANSWER:
      I know how that feels, It sucks when your hair gets shorter doesn't it. :/

      Here are some tips that make it grow longer.

      . Do not shower with hot water on your hair. Make sure hot water doesn't touch your hair when you are showering then put it as cold as you can when you are rinsing your hair. Hair is made up of dead particles and are very sensitive to heat.

      Do not iron or blow dry your hair and DO NOT sleep with it wet. Just try to naturally air dry it or blow dry it on cool air if you are in a rush.

      Do not dye it or put it up tightly.

      Take a multi vitiman and make sure you eat healthy.

      Relax. Stress can also cause your hair to fall out.

      IMPORTANT: Scrub your scalp with your fingers in the shower because hair often gets trapped under dead skin sitting on the top. (I know it sounds gross)

      Apperently if you cut it it will grow faster.

      P.S. IF you are a guy your hair will grow faster. I don't know why this works

Grow Long Black Hair Quickly

"How long does it take grapes to grow?" is a question the inexperienced backyard grape vine grower might very well ask. The fact is, grape growing is not an overnight process. You will need to spend several seasons tending your vines before you are proudly able to harvest your first crop.

Fruit can not appear during the first season, for grapes grow off of the new growth from one year old canes. The first year will be spent developing those canes. During this first season, you should train the stronger of the two canes that grow from the plant to a vertical stake tall enough to support the mature plant your grape vine will eventually grow into. The other cane should be cut off early in the spring. Trim off any suckers also. If neither of the canes is at least three feet tall the first season, cut both back to two buds and give your vine another growing season to establish itself, then repeat this process.

Beginning the following year and then once annually, you'll want to heavily prune your grape vines during the winter months while the plant is dormant. Trimming grape vines back 85 - 90 percent will eventually give you the best quality fruit. Somewhere between the second and fourth years, depending on the variety of grape being grown, fruit will finally appear!

The novice grape farmer is often excited by the first show of heavy fruit on the vines. It would be a mistake at this point to skimp on pruning them, no matter how well they appear to be doing. If the vines are overloaded with too much fruit, the plant can not support itself and if the fruit even ripens, it will be of poor quality and unusable. Although heavy pruning may seem counterproductive to a great harvest at first glance, it is an important step in producing the best fruit for eating out of hand or making wine at home for the long term.

It does take a long time to grow grapes, but until your first crop comes in, it is worth taking the time to tend the vines properly. Grape vines can live and produce viable fruit for 50 - 100 years, so it will well be worth your time and patience during those first few years of waiting to do it right.

    Any recommendations of having long hair and healthy hair.
    And Im just starting to grow it its half an inch and Im a male

    • ANSWER:
      Just do this:

      To achieve beautiful, shiny and long hair i recommend that you let these tips go straight to your head:

      Washing
      When washing your hair, you should treat it with the utmost care. Over enthusiastic rubbing, scrubbing and pulling can lead to quite a lot of damage and hair loss and therefore should be avoided. Hair should be rinsed very, very thoroughly and with care. Never bunch your hair up when you wash it. Keep it straight down as you wash from the scalp to the tips, running your fingers lightly through your hair to keep it from tangling and to fully wash it. Use a mild shampoo and try to have the last rinse with cold water. This shrinks the molecules of the hair and gets rid of superfluous coatings, making hair much more manageable. Use a good conditioner to condition your hair. When you've finished the washing and conditioning process, mop up excess water with a towel wrapped around your head for a few minutes.

      Shampooing
      Choose shampoos containing only natural ingredients with conditioning properties. First, remove surface dirt through gentle rinse. Rinse and lather again, massaging your head to increase the blood supply to the scalp and roots. Don't vigorously rub braids or weaves but do rinse in cascades of water to clean the hair thoroughly. Wash your hair more frequently if you have itching, flaking or dandruff. These conditions are not due to dryness. Thoroughly rinse out conditioner, or the residue will dirty your hair faster.

      Combing
      Never brush hair when it's wet. De-tangle as much of your hair as you can with your fingers. Finally, use a wide-spaced comb to smooth and untangle your hair gently. Begin to comb from the bottom, working slowly up the strands. Never start at the top and tug downwards as this can do a lot of damage to your hair.

      Brushing
      Bend forward allowing hair to fall. Use a large oval brush to bring hair from the nape of the neck over the head and down to the ends. Then, stand straight again with hair falling normally and brush from the underside of the hairline down the strands to the ends. Now, brush the top layers into place with long, even strokes. After each stroke, smooth hair with hands to reduce static. Increase the number of strokes daily until you find a comfortable routine. Never brush hair when wet.

      Drying
      Dry hair naturally always since it is good for your hair texture. If blow-drying is necessary, blow in downward strokes only on cool setting.

      Oiling
      A healthy scalp produces natural oil, which coats the hair strand and protects it from the environment. Therefore brush your hair regularly for 10 to 15 minutes in order to distribute the scalp oil over and down to the end of the hair. If you have dry hair at the ends then use good oil products for your hair and apply the oil directly to the areas where it is needed. Do not apply too much oil to your hair as it will make your scalp and hair sticky which will in turn attract too much dirt and make your hair dirty very soon.

      Protection
      Protect your hair from over-exposure to sun, salt, chemicals or chlorinated water, wind and pollution. Wear a hat, cap or scarf if you can. Seek out hair products with sunscreens.

      Good luck!!

  3. QUESTION:
    I'm a black male. Can I get my hair to grow quickly?
    I've never had Afro-sized hair before and would really like to grow long hair and try some interesting styles. I've always been told to get a haircut so I don't know the limit my hair can grow. What can I do? Any help is appreciated. I didn't want to read the other questions because I thought answers tailored to me would be the most effective.

    • ANSWER:
      You can grow your hair to as long as you want. The downfall with many black people with their hair is that they don't properly care for it. They avoid water at all costs (which our hair loves water, it is shampoo that is dries out our hair) or use hair grease when our hair needs moisture (hair grease like Blue Magic blocks out moisture). Caring for our hair is different than caring for other hair types, but just because it is different doesn't mean it is difficult. I am natural, I grew out my natural hair with my last relaxer being September 2009. So 14 months later, my hair is now shoulder length after starting from no natural hair and all relaxed hair. I don't shop in the ethnic hair aisle because the products are made crappy just to sell to make money, whites and koreans rule the black hair industry and make these sucky products that they will never use in their hair if it was the last product on Earth. So stay out of there and read up on how to care for natural hair care because there is so much information that you can receive. But the basic products are:
      A sulfate free shampoo, the sulfates in shampoo are drying to our hair. I actually use Baking soda as a shampoo, it is cheap and doesn't damages the hair. I mix 1-2 Tablespoons in 1 cup of warm water, pour it over my head, scrub, and rinse out.
      A cheap conditioner, I use Suave.
      A water based (meaning the first ingredient is water and does not contain petroleum and mineral oil) leave in conditioner. I use the same conditioner I was with as a leave in conditioner or Organic Root Stimulator leave in conditioner.
      A light natural oil. Our hair cannot hold moisture well due to the shape of the strands, just a dime sized amount applied to each section of the hair or a quarter sized amount if you have shorter hair is needed. Not a lot.
      A deep conditioner, I use ORS Replishing Pak, it should be done bi-weekly or monthly. It just makes your hair stronger.

      The best hair care will help your hair grow. So read up on natural hair care because if you don't know how to care for your hair you will get breakage and lose the length you are trying to gain. That is the main thing with natural hair. You can even find out that your hair grows faster than the 1/2 inch per month average, so don't feel down.

  5. QUESTION:
    How to make my hair grow back quickly!!!!!!!!??????
    I got a haircut on june 8th and it's not even a quarter of an inch long.it's black,curly hair.i wanted dreadlocks but i was forced to cut it...how can i make it grow back quicker?and don't just answer "it will grow back in it's own" i need help! i hate my hair when it's short and i can't just wear a hat all summer...

    • ANSWER:
      To improve hair growth you need to improve overall hair health, healthy hair and scalp will improve growth and condition of your hair, which in turn means you'll have fewer split ends - even though you're growing your hair still get regular trims as there's no good in hanging onto split ends. Hair grows from folicles, as new hair cells are made old ones are pushed out to the surface of the skin where they harden and die creating hair. As hair is dead hair treatments effect on growth and hair quality are limited, you need good overall health to really improve hair health and increase growth.

      Try monistat, yes it's a yeast ifnection cream, but it contains some of the same chemicals as rogaine so stimulates hair growth when massaged into your scalp, only without costing the earth. Massage is a seriously good way to help increase growth, I like to massage a few drops of rosemary essential oil into my scalp before washing my hair, rosemary is belived to stimulate hair growth. Massaging your scalp will improve health of your scalp and hair, also massaging promotes circulation around the hair follicles to promote growth, just use your fingers to massage your scalp in small circular movement being careful not to rub as it'll damage your hair. Get into the habbit of massaging as often as you can, before washing your hair and also massage during washing your hair.

      I highly recommend going without shampoo, it'll vastly improve your hairs condition and increase growth, essentially it is avoiding shampoo as this is nothing more than harsh detergent that strips away hairs natural oils and can contain harsh chemicals. If you stop using shampoo your hair will be much healthier, stronger, shiny, easier to manage, will grow faster and it won't get greasy as when using shampoo your scalp overcompensates by creating more oils to replace what shampoo stripped away. You still wash your hair but instead use either water-only, no-poo or conditioner-only/curly girl methods. For no-poo you use one tablespoon baking soda to one cup of warm water, apply to your roots working it in and let it sit for a minute, this stimulates blood flow, cleans pores and gets off built-up grime, then rinse with two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to one cup water, let it sit for a minute and then rinse out. Long-haired people tend to prefer the curly girl method also known as conditioner only, simply use conditioner to wash hair with as this has enough detergent to cleanse but won't strip hair of natural oils as shampoo would. Seriously, don't be scared to try it as you're guaranteed better hair. More information;

      http://motowngirl.com/no_shampoo.php
      http://reactor-core.org/shampoo-scam.html

      Avoid hair dryers as overheating can damage your hair and never rub with a towel as it will damage the hair cuticles, instead leave to dry naturally or if you do use a hairdryer use protecting sprays and choose a dryer with lighter or cooler settings – use until your hairs 90% dry, no more. Also try using a hair brush with natural bristles as these are much genler on your hair and can improve shine, another tip is to use a satin or silk pillow as this prevents hair snagging as it can on other materials, it also helps smooth hair so improves shine.

      Avoid chemicals as much as possible, most commercial toileteries will contain some pretty nasty chemicals that can cause a lot of damage to your hair – even those products that claim to improve hairs condition. Look into natural brands like Lush or Neal's Yard, or even consider making your own hair care products, there are plenty of cheap books or web sites about with natural hair care products you can easily make at home. Avoid chemical dies too, I saw first-hand how bad chemical dies were for my hair, it was very badly damaged and took trice as long to dry or style, switching to henna dye is so much better, and as well as used for changing hair colour it can also be used as a fantastic conditioning treatment (use deep conditioning treatments like henna once a month). The best place for henna is http://www.hennaforhair.com

      Things such as stress or bad diet can seriously effect your hair, I saw the huge effect diet has on hair when one of my friends sadly became anorexic, the effects started showing allarmingly fast, as well as effecting general health her hair became so brittle it would litterally fall appart in her hands. Don't underestimate the importance of diet, don't follow fad diets or yo-yo diet, instead keep up a good healthy diet at all times and don't punish yourself for the occasional treat. Particularly helpful foods are oily fish like sardines, oats, nuts, seeds, guavas, papyas, and of course lots of water, using a good multivitamin will help (you can get hair & nail vitamins but they aren't necissery) and also I'd recommend flax seed oil in capsule form.

  7. QUESTION:
    Black Male Hair: How long will it take to grow my hair out?
    Last October, I decided to get a haircut, after about seven years of growing my hair out. I mainly kept it in twists or braids but I thought it would be cool to try something different and it was refreshing to have my hair cut low for a minute since it was easier to manage.

    Now, I'm second guessing it. Low, my hair is pretty soft and awkward ( it oftens sticks up in sharp " shards " ) and it grows back too quickly for me to afford a hair cut every other week. I'm pretty done with it and I'm trying to grow it back. So my question is, how long would it take my to grow my hair out long enough to manage some braids?

    I got some old picture links at the bottom just to show how fast my hair usually grows. That haircut was atleast a week (or a week and a few days old). Right now, I have a little more hair than that and it's been two and a half weeks. How long would it take for me to bypass the awkward stage enough for me to get it braided? I hear that braids will eventually help grow it out long enough to get it twisted.

    thanx!
    also, i don't look good with short hair so i'm thinking about extentions

    • ANSWER:
      Get it trimmed every 4-6 weeks to get rid of split and damaged ends. It won't make your hair grow any faster, but it will help it to start growing again. When I used to relax my hair (before I came to my senses and vowed NEVER to abuse my hair again!) it had stopped growing at 6 inches, but when I started getting it trimmed regularly it grew to 9 inches after about 6 months.

    How do i get black hair lighter?

So how can i fade my black quickly or get it from black to burgundy definitely want a lighter color as soon as possible without having to wait for my hair to grow back to its natural color
    Ok, my mom said i can't dye it with any kind of blonde dye at all...

    • ANSWER:
      I am not sure what your natural hair color is, but if it is naturally black you have to remove the black color by either bleaching first with peroxide level 20 then adding the red color. I would definitely have a professional do this for you because lightening your hair is dangerous and should only be attempted by someone who knows what they are doing! I wish you were close to my area because i I would help you out! GOOD LUCK!

    African/Black hair how to make it longer (pills, oils)?
    Ok so I am mixed (half black and half white) and my hair grows really fast . However , my bestfriend is fully black and her hair does not grow very quickly . It is relaxed/permed and she has always wanted long hair. Her birthday is coming up and I wanted to give her something she was always wanted for like ever....but it is kind hard to give someone long hair. So i need to know is there any pills or hair oil SOLD IN CANADA that can make her hair long please !!! Help her birthday is in a few days and she really wants her hair to be long .

    PLEASE HELP
    (not to expensive ..... lol)

    • ANSWER:
      One of the major problems with African hair is dryness and breakage due to both the kinky, curly texture and the tendency for some women to overprocess their hair with dyes, relaxers, perms, etc. Good nutrition will contribute to healthy hair, but treating hair well as it grows is the best way to keep it growing long and strong. Shampooing less, or using a clarifying conditioner instead of a shampoo can be a great step for maintaining the moisture in curly hair. The website www.naturallycurly.com has GREAT information and product recommendations for keeping curly hair healthy. Since you're looking specifically for a birthday gift for your friend, I've come up with a couple of suggestions here:

      A diffuser or diffusing attachment for a blowdryer distributes heat more gently and evenly through hair, so blowdrying does less damage. Example:
      http://www.curlmart.com/-Sedusa-Diffuser-p-623.html

      A deep oil treatment may go a long way towards restoring moisture to damaged hair, preventing split ends and breakage. Natural oils such as olive oil, jojoba oil, and avocado oil will absorb into the hair rather than just resting on it as some conditioners do. Also, they smell great! Oils can be used on an occasional basis or regularly in small amounts as a leave-in conditioner. Example:
      http://www.curlmart.com/Avocado-Oil-p-779.html

      If you don't want to order online, I'm sure that a drugstore or health/beauty store near you will have similar (if not identical) products.

    How to get my african american type hair to grow long, thick and healthy?
    I occasionally wear braids in my hair but not often. I have type 4 hair which is thick. My hair does not shed but I experience breakage... My hair falls above my neck. I get regrowth but my hair does not grow in length. I am a student so I will not buy shampoos and hair products for over each.

    I have relaxed hair. i use ORS olive oil relaxer and moisturizer. I use hair mayonnaise as a protein deep condition once every two weeks. I sometimes co-wash my hair with V05 conditioners. I would like my hair to grow to like bra strap length. My hair does grow very quickly, I have ancestors from the Horn of Africa. (Somalian and Ethiopian people) so my hair is not hard. I want to know do you have to oil your scalp? I know other black people who oil their hair with dax every day but it does not grow long.
    I want my HAIR to stop breaking and learn how to look after it properly so it can grow to its full potential. I drink lots of water and consume a balanced diet.

    • ANSWER:
      Hello,

      I do understand the frustration of growing type 4 hair long, but I am convinced that ALL hair grows. What a number of African-American women truly lack is a good education in how to care for curly/kinky hair types and retain length (that's the key). I have seen a number of women with type 4 hair grow it to and past bra-strap length.

      My suggestion would be to investigate and apply a good hair care regimen and try to use as many natural, chemical-free and pH balanced products on your hair as possible. Wear your hair in a protective style where the ends are covered and not hanging loose. Learn to use essential and base oils to care for your scalp and moisturize your hair often. There are some good tips for this referenced in the source link below - getting black hair to grow (check out her hair care regimen).
      Also referenced is a great video of a woman who has grown her hair to the length you referenced.

      You can do it! You can have the length of hair you desire.

    I have black hair with a kind of golden/light brown coloured roots, but im just sick of it now, i've had black hair for a few years now and i don't suit blonde in my hair so i can't have any nice highlights.
    I really want to go back to the colour i had before black hair, but i'd like it soon, i only use semi permanent colour but my hair grows so quickly i have to dye it every 2 months, which isn't very safe.
    What's the best way for me to get rid of my black hair? I have really thin hair and it's very long - just above my bum.

    • ANSWER:
      You could lighten it with a mix of lemon juice & hydrogen peroxide. Put it into a spray bottle and lighten your hair back to brown. I always do this when I want to change a little to dark brown. It takes a few days but it works.

  16. QUESTION:
    A product to colour the resistant gray in my natural BLACK hair?
    My hair is actually a very dark brown with strong reddish undertones which I have been dying black to match my deep black eyebrows.As the amount of gray hair increases I find that the gray hairs are extremely resistant to the dyes I have been using, even when I leave the colouring product on longer than suggested.

    Since moving to Europe I have tried Garnier Belle Color (No 80 Natural Black), but find that my hair fades to a medium reddish brown, and the gray hairs fade to a lighter reddish brown.

    My hair is very soft and fine, and the gray is just as soft and as fine as a baby's. (Where are the stiff coarse gray 'boing-boings' my mother used to complain about?)

    As my hair grows very quickly, I have to colour it once a month at least.

    I am looking for a good fade-resistant natural black (without the dramatic purples and blues). Very dark brownish black is fine too -as long as it covers the gray and won't fade. I want to avoid any colour that brings out the red. (Reddish hair makes my light yellowish-olive skin look like an old cheese.)

    Any suggestions on a product available in the UK would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I am a black woman with really short hair how can I get my hair to start growing quick?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair Care: Its important to keep your hair moisturized, no matter what! Plan to invest in potent products made especially for African-Amer hair. If the hair is dry and brittle, it will break off and you'll never reach your desired length.

      Hair Styles: Less is more. Do as little to your hair as you can while keeping it clean and hydrated. Individual braids for a few months are good for realizing growth and also sew-in weaves if they are done right. Avoid heat styling and chemicals (perms).

      Diet: Drink water!!! lots and lots of water. Also, vitamins work but you will only see results if you take them religiously for a few months straight.

    At what age did you start shaving your full beard?

    • ANSWER:
      First let me tell you that contrary to popular belief, shaving will not increase your ability to grow facial hair. You must rely on your genetics and other factors. I personally like having a full beard and therefore do not shave anymore but if you do not like that look you can start as soon as it is necessary. I started shaving around age 14 myself.

But, whenever I've tried to grow them out, they've taken forever, and I look horrible with random eyebrow stubble everywhere. It's embarassing to have such short eyebrows, but it's even worse to have short eyebrows with random black hairs growing in where there should be a full brow! Is there anyway I can make them grow longer, and sooner? I absolutely hate eyebrow pencils, but I might be willing to try shadows or a brow compact or even some kind of hair growing cream.

It has many split ends, is there anything i can do to increas its growth very quickly. Any product that can make hair grow longer? Natural hair treatment? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      My first suggestion is stop straithening your hair.. It often tends to damage hair.. You are right in trying natural stuff in aiding hair health. Remember your hair reflects your health so stick to healthy foods. Vitamins for hair loss are generally the B group , and and enzyme called Biotin has proven excellent for hair loss and general health. Try to find natural sources rather than pills. You also get Biotin Shampoos and Conditioners. Only take supplements if you are lacking in a particular vitamin. Never ever overdo any supplement..

  23. QUESTION:
    Can you semi-permanently dye black hair?
    I regularly donate my hair (about once every one or two years, since my hair doesn't grow very quickly), but this time, when I donate, I want to see if I can get what's left of it dyed. I have black hair, so I've been holding off on doing this for a long time because I'm pretty sure I'd have to bleach it, and almost all donation centers don't accept bleached or permanently dyed hair. Is it even possible to semi-permanently dye black hair?
    I'm not going for a neon color. My hair looks quite brown under most lights, and I'd like to see how it would look with a bluish tinge.

    • ANSWER:
      I have very dark almost black hair (I'm Malaysian-descended), and I thought the same as you when I was still inexperienced with dyes. If you go to a professional salon and get it permanently dyed, they will sometimes use a pre-lightening shampoo, but they won't bleach it unless you ask. I got my hair permanently dyed bright red, and although it will never go as bright as say, Rihanna's, it definitely is red. I've had some success with semi-permanents, I've used Schwarzkopf products as they seem to be the brightest (they do have a blue-black colour), and the colour was pretty bright even on my hair. It faded fairly quickly which is one of the disadvantages of semi-permanents, but if you're just experimenting to see how it looks then I'd think you'd have no problem with a semi-permanent.

    Could you please help an Asian guy with thick, wavy, frizzy hair in managing his hair?
    I'm in high school, and I hate spending a really long time trying to tame my hair in the morning after showering. I have black hair that grows very quickly and is very thick, wavy, frizzy, and dry.

    I currently use Biolage shampoo and conditioner, but it doesn't really seem to moisturize my hair. I don't know if I should get my hair relaxed, try to use a different shampoo/conditioner, or what! I'm the only one in my family that has hair that is this crazy. I need help!

    Any suggestions? Any shampoos that would moisturize my hair and make it manageable and not nappy or frizzy? I've tried quite a few of shampoos but I don't want to waste any more money.

  29. QUESTION:
    My 3 & 1/2 old daughter has hardly any hair. Why won't it grow?
    At the longest her hair is 1/2 an inch. It's coarse and very dry no matter what shampoo/conditioner/oil I use. In the back of her head, (where it rubbed out as a baby), it hardly covers the spot. You can tell it's the baby bald spot. Her father and I (I'm black, he's multi-racial) both have thick hair that grows quickly. Her brothers would have hair down their back if I didn't make them get haircuts. She doesn't pull it out a lot, and I don't know what else to do. All the other kids her age have at least enough for a pony-tail. Even my 7 month old nephew has more hair than her. What am I doing wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing. This is very common. In fact so, that I was bald until I was five. I have fuller fine hair now as an adult but my mother had to deal with my lack of hair until it started to grow. My advice to you, just be glad you are saving money on a haircut.
      As for the science behind it, I haven't a clue as to why this happens but I do know that I was one of these "sufferers"

    I want long hair for the summer !<3?
    Ok so my hair isnt short or long,its medium length & has layers.
    The top is about a little past my ear & the bottom is like 1-2 1/2 inches past my shoulders.
    I have mixed hair(white black,italian) & as soon as i wet it,it curls up and gets dry quickly.
    & looks way shorter that way . (I also recently trimmed my ends,so it looks a little shorter which im not to happy about).

    Im not to fond of my hair because it just gets tooooo curly,even when i put mousse in it and it becomes stiff. Im trying my hardest not to straighten it because before i ever got hooked on my straightening iron,my hair was wayyy wayyy past my shoulders,it was very veryyy long.
    Im trying to let my hair grow,wich means trying to stay away from hot irons and wearing it curly to school,even though i hate it that wayy .

    So,if i were to not straighten my hair for 3 months and just wear it naturally curly to schooool until the last day of school,will my hair have grown to a noticable extent ?

    I have long straight black hair, but it is NOT at the maximum 10", so I cannot donate it to Locks of Love (I've done that three times in the past 9 years). I want to do a drastic change, and 1 way for me to do that is to cut my hair. At my age, I cannot dye my hair in a freaky yellow, like previously, or spike it, b/c my hair grows out too quickly.

  40. QUESTION:
    Will my hair fall out if i dye it again?
    Ive been really worried lately. My hair used to be blonde. My roots would grow out quickly. So I'd dye it again. Finally I got tired of it, and just reccently I dyed it brown. I really like it. But Ive been getting frustrated how the color began to fade. So about a month ago, I dyed it again. But now its growing back to the lighter color. I know it must be doing that because it was blonde for a long time, right? Well I like my hair being dark. So Im REALLYYY wanting to dye it black this time. Will my hair fall out? Will it dry out, even if I do almost anything I can do to keep it healthy? except dying it... Will my hair turn gray?? I have always had thin hair. And Im trying to keep it healthy so maybe it would grow thicker. Also, I thought it was weird how the last two times I dyed it, I didn't feel any burning on my scalp. Could that mean It's drying out? Please, answer these questions. But I would rather not see any dramatic post. :[ hahh... I stress out over little things. Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay. This is something I have mucch experience with. My hair is also originally blonde, and it's been purple, fire engine red, auburn, and now black.

      So to answer your questions.

      Will my hair fall out?
      No. Hair dye is made so it's not going to completely RUIN your hair.

      Will it dry out?
      Depends. My hair is a teensy bit dried out, but I manage to keep the frizz and split ends at a very managable level because I use this shampoo && conditioner that I get from Sally's Beauty Store. It's a generic shampoo and conditioner so it's cheap, and it does an EXCELLENT job at restoring the moisture in your hair. The brand name is simply "Generic" And it comes in a very plain black and white bottle.

      Will your hair turn gray?
      Of course not. Unless you have that thing where you hair grows in naturally gray even if your young. But somehow I'm thinking you dont have that condition. ~.^

      As for the thickness, try finding some spray at the store that helps thicken/volumize your hair, I already have fairly thick hair, but I use this stuff anyways because I like having alot of volume to my hair.

      I have yet to feel burning on my scalp. ever.
      And my hair is not that dry.

      Wellll hope this helped you!

  42. QUESTION:
    Do you have to be part black to have really curly hair?
    I consider myself a Mexican Latina, I have Spanish, Native American, Portuguese, and German blood in me. As far as I know, I'm not black, however since I'm Mexican I know it's totally possible for me to have some black ancestry. So anyway, does the fact that I have really curly hair mean I'm part black? Also, my hair is very curly, yet it still grows very long and rather quickly at that. The curls are tighter than that of most Hispanics and Caucasians yet they are looser than most blacks. My hair is comparable to Gloria Estefan's texture in this picture: http://www.ticketservice.com/assets/images/gloria_estefan2.jpg. As far as I know, she is a Spanish-Cuban. Sorry for the long additional detail, I'm just curious. Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      No most definitly not. I know to girls in my class, they are as white as it can get, blonde hair blue eyes really pale, but their hair is extremely curly, very small and tight. Heck i'm part Black myself and their hair is curlier then mine! But then agian, my hair is more wavy then curly.

  43. QUESTION:
    From blonde to black?
    I've always loved black hair, but I'm a natural blonde. It's a kind of strawberry blonde. I was just wondering, in case I ever want to dye my hair black, would it look really bad? 'Cause like, wouldn't the roots grow out really quickly and then it would be black hair with blonde roots?
    How long does it take for the roots to grow noticably?
    This question is just out of curiosity.

    • ANSWER:
      I have naturally dark blonde hair and it's dyed black right now. And I love it! It makes my hair look SUPER shiny and healthy and I love it. The roots grow out in about a month but thats just me... other people could be faster or slower. Re-doing the roots is pretty easy though.

  45. QUESTION:
    What should I do with my hair?
    Ok so I'm a 21 year african american female and of course my hair is like kinky curly like if i put conditioner on it then it curls up but if i just let it dry it gets kinky(nappy). I am in a period of transitioning right now because I am about to graduate undergrad school and going to grad school then I am going to enter into the job market. And I have tried almost everything in my hair. I have had relaxers, texturizers, afro, tight curls, loose curls, braids, cornrows, weaves. I color my hair once because it naturally sandy brown and I color it darker to blue black which made it jet black. I had cut it all off and I had a bald head for awhile. Since then I have let it grown back and the ends are relaxed but the roots is not. And I seriously was considering getting dreadlocks since that's the only thing I haven't done yet but I have a terrible time finding a salon to get them started so I'm taking that as a sign that I shouldn't get them because if I can't find someone to start them it's going to be hard to find someone to maintain them. So I am considering just let my natural hair grow because eventually what will happen is the relaxed part will break off and the natural hair will just get longer. But I am also thinking of the future and professionalism so I was wondering if just letting it grow is the right thing to do. Last thing I want to do is start dreads and can't maintain them so they become a nappy mess. I have seen that happen since most people my age are doing dreadlocks now. I don't want to do anymore chemicals since I don't like how they make the hair look when a person get older (I have seen many older black women have thinning of the hair due to poor maintenance and chemicals). I do a pretty job of taking care of my hair I condition it alot and wash it often and try to keep the styling to a minimum. All those things I said I did before that was over a course of 5 years. My hair grows rather quickly for example I cut my hair bald in January and by the summer I had a mini afro. A year later my hair had grown a little past my ears. I am sort what of a free spirit so that why I am a bit confuse as to what I should do to my hair. I'm not afraid to try something new so I guess you can say what I can do is limitless. I don't like weaves they are annoying. But to sum it up I am pretty much looking for a healthy way to maintain my hair but at the same time if I need to be professional then I can do that as well. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

  47. QUESTION:
    Re-coloring hair that has been stripped?
    I had been coloring my hair black, and then wanted to go back to my original color - I'm a brunette. After the black had been stripped, my hair was a shade of red. I then had it colored to brown, so that as my hair grew in, it would be fine. Or so I was told. The color faded very quickly, and is now back to the reddish shade.

    I was later told that when you strip the color, it's not possible to re-color. Now I'm waiting for it to grow out. It's either that, or I may just have to color my roots a shade of red to match the rest, because I don't like to look unkept.

    I have long hair, so I think it will be at least a half a year to be able to cut the rest. Even then it will be a lot shorter.

    Any ideas or options?

    • ANSWER:
      The tricky part of color correction is the condition of the hair. It was the right thing to do to remove the black and to color the hair. However ALL hair color will require upkeep. Had they applied a perm brown over the red it would cause even more damage and leave the hair more quickly. The best result is to cover with a semi-perm in a cool tone. Do not wash again for 24-48 hours. Use only safe and or color depositing shampoo in the appropriate brown tone. Keep your hair out of sun, tanning beds and be gentle with heat. Be prepared to have the semi done in again in 4 weeks. You just need to be recolored- there is no problem here.

  48. QUESTION:
    Will my hair turn orange?
    I dyed my hair black a long time ago. Probably last winter. I tried a lightening kit and it turned my hair orange so I quickly rinsed it out and dyed my hair with Revlon Color silk Dark Brown hair dye. My hair is very healthy thank goodness I was able to do all this dyeing in one period of time without damaging.

    A lot of my hair is still black. My natural color is coming through about 2 inches on the top and it's a light brown and it's looking very silly especially having it like that at work every day. I want to go a medium brown and then eventually caramel brown. ( I figure go lighter than black and then eventually move my way down lighter and lighter as my hair color becomes lighter so I don't turn orange or kill it) Black hair has made me look sick and dead. I've been trimming my hair like crazy to grow out the natural and rid the black as much as I can. It's not helping very much since I know this will take a year to happen, at least!

    So back to my question... What the hell can I use without all this processing and color removers and special shampoos and kits just to make my hair as close to it's original color as possible? I don't want red or orange tones. I just want something that will help cover my zebra-like look while it grows out and get rid of the black. Even if I end up with a chocolate brown, I'd be satisfied. What do I do to avoid the orange?! Thank you.

  49. QUESTION:
    I have a hair problem?
    I am 17 years old and I have a bit of a problem.

    I am very very white skinned with blue eyes and naturally really dark hair so the hair that grows through on my body is fine long and black. It is not thick or wirey it grows in long silky hairs and it grows fast.

    Under my arms it grows coarse like usual but its hard to remove it all and even when I do it has started growing back in a day and I get a bad dark grey shadow I am worried to lift my arms just in case and the same around my downstairs.

    My arms it grows through and they need shaved (like other places) daily to keep it somewhat under control. My leg hairs grow through very quickly and very dark too they grow long and so fast I need to shave daily. I have even started getting a few hairs around my belly button. I get none on my chest or face btw (I am a girl so obviously not) but it is worrying I'm frightened to show my arms or wear a vest top when its hot because I get shadows and the hair grows through so dark.

    Any ideas what I can do about this? don't say waxing because I can't put wax on my EXTREMELY sensitive skin I can't even use moisturiser so waxing is a waste of an answer.

    What about that new 'me' product from boots would that work? I really need some help I hate having to shave every single day

      You could get it lazered off, but that probably would hurt badly.

  3. QUESTION:
    How long does it take for short hair to grow up to shoulder/collar bone/pony tail length?
    I've been in short hair all these while, as far as i can rmb the last time i had long was 10 yrs old back in primary school. Now i'm 20, i decided to go back to the old school long hair(boy that's how long it took me to change my hairstyle).

    My hair is not as short as pixie short, but the rather longer like erm..Ellen Degeneres type of short, with fringe up to my jaw. But my most recent hairstyle was bob.

    As you know, bob is longer in the front and shorter at the back, as it grows longer, it is started to go out of shape. So i went to trim it, plus i heard that trimming will make your hair grows faster because of healthier ends sth like that.

    But now my fringe is trimmed to be as short as the hair at the back, so i'm back to my usual short hair AGAIN and NOWHERE NEAR LONG HAIR.

    How long more will it take for my hair to reach collar bone/pony tail length? Is it true that trimming will make it grow faster? Any other ways to make my hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      maybe about six months, it depends on how fast your hair grows
      eat foods with lots of protein, and be gentle when you brush it so the ends wont break off. regular trimming doesn't make your hair grow faster, it keeps it from getting dry and brittle and breaking, so it seems like it's growing faster.

  4. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to grow short hair into long hair?
    I want a new look this year so I want to cut my hair short like Katie Holmes.
    Right now I have my hair really long but I want to know how long does it take for short hair to grow long because I do want long hair for next year.
    Please don't say that it depends on how long your hair grows.Whats the average length of hair you grow a year medium or long?

    • ANSWER:
      Average is about 3/4 - an inch. Mine grows about 3/4 of an inch. Sometimes it grows an inch. So it depends. It does grow pretty fast though. My natural colour is a sandy brown/blond, and I have it dyed black with bleached blond parts, so I can easily see how fast it grows.

  5. QUESTION:
    How can I make my hair grow long faster and more healthy?
    I have never had long hair. The longest I ever got to long hair was like a lil longer than shoulder length hair and I'm finally trying to grow it out. I usually cut it when it gets to about shoulder length. My hair is now like below my neck. I have fine curlyish hair. What tips are they're to make the process faster. What can deter it from growing.

    How Can I Grow Long Hair In A Year?
    Hey! I have ALLWAYS wanted long hair since i was little, but i wasnt exactly blessed with quick growing hair. Over the years, my styles have changed a lot, so my hair has had a lot of different dos. My hair is a little passed the shoulders in length, and i would absolutly LOVE to have maybe mid-back lengthed hair in about a year..is there anyway i could grow it that quickly? I don't want to use extensions, nor am i aloud. Please help me! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Here are a few tips for making your hair grow longer , quicker :)
      Take many vitamins, you can maximize your genetic growth cycle through taking the proper blend of amino acids and B-vitamins. It is also important to include B-6, biotin, Inositol and folic acid in the supplemental program. It has been found that certain minerals including magnesium, sulfur, silica and zinc are also very important toward maintaining healthy hair. Beta-carotene is also essential to hair growth. This is because it is converted to vitamin A as the body needs it, helps maintain normal growth and bone development, protective sheathing around nerve fibers, as well as promoting healthy skin, hair and nails. Beta-carotene is found in green and yellow vegetables and fruits. Since hair is protein, a diet that is too low in protein may cause some thinning in hair or a retardation in the growth cycle. The converse is true, If you eat a protein-rich diet it will often result in improved hair growth. good food sources for protein include fish, eggs, beans and yogurt. Soy protein has also been found to be helpful in stimulating hair growth. One study of the results of soy on the hair found that it not only strengthened the hair but caused it to grow. A great source of soy is tofu. Here are some other hair growing tips:

      Eliminate or cut back on smoking, caffeine and carbonated sodas which weaken the body and block maximum hair growing potential.
      Eat a healthy diet. Avoid foods that are high in sugar or fat.
      Treat your hair like a piece of fine old lace. Treat it carefully avoiding any unnecessary brushing, combing or handling.
      Avoid use of hot water, hot blow dryers or other hair care tools that may stress the hair.
      Have a weekly scalp massage to provide stimulation to the hair follicles.
      Do a series of ongoing hot oil treatments to protect the hair's shaft.
      Have regular trims to eliminate split ends and allow the hair to look and feel healthier.
      Get plenty of rest and sleep to allow your body to grow hair.

      The answer to "instant hair growth" is that there isn't any. There is no magic bullet. If you want to go from a short Bob to long flowing locks instantly than you do have some options, but depending on a variety of factors, they may be limited. Your best bet for overnight long hair is to consider hair extensions, clip on ponytails or long wigs.

      Hope I could Help :)

  7. QUESTION:
    How do I help my hair grow long faster and healthier?
    I currently have shoulder length hair with a fringe (bangs) and choppy layers.

    I want to grow my hair quite long, maybe halfway down my back. I would keep the fringe and put layers in it again.

    Is there any way I make sure my hair grows healthy?

    Maybe even quicker? I love the thought of having really long hair again, I guess I am just impatient.

    • ANSWER:
      The one thing you're going to need is patience, especially as your bangs grow out. I hated that.

      There is no magical shampoo, vitamin or treatment that will make your hair grow faster. Hair only grows between 1/4" to 1/2" a month.

      The best thing you can do is get it trimmed every two to three months (that controls split ends-which causes breakage) and do not use much heat-you know, blow dryers, curling irons, etc. Don't back-comb or tease your hair. When you get your hair trimmed, make sure your stylist understands the definition of 'trim'. I've had to yell at a few over the years for cutting off too much, when all I wanted was to get the split ends snipped. Of course, I never went back to them.

      Use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. If you want, use a hot oil deep conditioner once a month.

      Really, all you can do is be patient, control the split ends and be good to your hair.

  8. QUESTION:
    Ways to make your hair grow long and be healthy?
    I have thin hair and thin hair shafts aswell and my hair never grows past my shoulders (I don't cut my split ends tho).

    How can I make my hair grow long!? >_< Or is it true that some hairs don't grow longer than a specific length? ):

    I heard coconut oil is good for your hair? Does it prevent split ends or what?

    Any tips and tricks on how to grow hair long?

    • ANSWER:
      First get a small trim to get rid of those splits. Then start taking care of your hair by NOT using heating tools, chemicals, or to much styling products, or none at all. These things damage hair and cause splits.

      Yes everybody has a certain length that their hair stops growing. It depends on shed rate and how fast each individual hair grows.

      Lots of people like coconut oil for hair. I don't think it prevents splits though. It prevents friction and makes hair soft.

    • ANSWER:
      Getting your hair trimmed all the time will NOT make it grow faster! Hair is dead skin cells so not cutting will NOT affect how fast it grows! The only way to speed up the process is by tons of calcium and prenatal vitamins work REALLY well. They will also make your nails grow faster and they're really good for you even if your not prego. You can them in the vitamin section at any drug store, Target etc. Good Luck!

    I have hair upto my upper back. But I miss my long hair that I cut real short last september. Does anyone have any ideas on how to get it to grow longer and stay healthy.

    • ANSWER:
      Great answer, also try a hot oil treatment for the dryer seasons or when you can't avoid the dryer. Also, use a comb more on your hair and rely less on the harsher hair brushes and comb gently, starting from the bottom and as you remove any tangles then move up, this helps prevent splint end damage.

  19. QUESTION:
    How to grow long hair when your hair is thick?
    I have very thick hair that is naturally wavy. At the moment it is in a bob because managing it when it is long is difficult. However I would really like long hair! But whenever I leave it to grow, it doesn't seem to grow much longer, just thicker - it grows out (thicker) instead of down (longer). So I have to get it cut because it starts to look like my head is a bush!!! How do I combat this problem so I can grow long hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Well 1st you should get your hair trimmed and thinned so that the split ends get cut off and you hair is more manageable.Split ends stop hair growth so its important to get rid of them and prevent them. Also you should try coconut oil or jojoba oil. These to oils make your hair strong, moisturized, soft and pretty much anything good to your hair! Try going to an indian store, where you can find an oil called Vatika, this is a mixture of many different oils. All you do is put it in all over your hair for atleast a half an hour and wash it out!

  20. QUESTION:
    How can I grow long relaxed hair?
    Ok so I am 13 african american girl and I want long hair. My hair is relaxed now and is just above my shoulders when I use a flat iron. It seems like it will never go past that length. I think my hair is damaged. How do I get it to grow. I am also getting box braids, will it help my hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      First, you need to make sure you have a good moisturizer. Some products that contain mineral oil or petrolatum (look at the ingredients) can actually prevent hair growth b/c the scalp can't breathe. Try more natural products that contain coconut oil, shea butter, or olive oil. OR try the best REAL PURE coconut oil, shea butter or olive oil for moisture (you can mix them too, esp shea butter b/c it can be chunky).

      If your hair is dry often, it will not tend to grow because dry hair eventually breaks off. If it's dry it's probably damaged maybe by the heat.

      In my experience when I was relaxed, getting micro braids, or kinky twists for 1-2 months helped my hair grow because I wasn't putting heat on my hair or relaxing it. I think the same would happen with box braids because your hair gets a break from damage. Remember, even if you get braids you need to moisturize your hair so it's not dry and take care of it. Some girls make the mistake of getting braids and think they don't have to still care for their hair underneath.

  21. QUESTION:
    What can I do or take to make my hair grow long faster?
    I have pretty normal hair and I really want long long hair by summer (my hair is about two inches past my shoulders right now) are there any pills or foods that make your hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Try brushing your hair everyday, eat right, shampoo and conditioner good, keep as much heat off as it as possible meaning blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, etc. Your also going to have to get it cut a little a couple inches is fine...it actually helps your hair grow a lot faster. Look for specific shampoos and conditioners that promote hair growth and also Sephora has a pill called Phytophanere Dietary Supplement - Hair & Nails, its supposed to promote hair and nail growth its recieved good reviews. Also try some home remedies like washing your hair in milk, water and lemon, their are numerous types of remedies that you can look up on the internet or in magazines to help your hair grow and get healthy.
      The healthier the hair the better! Good Luck!

  22. QUESTION:
    How do I grow long hair fast and legitimately?
    Hey guys, I got into metal bands like Children of Bodom and Decapitated recently and I want to grow my hair from short to long. Right now, my hair is about 5-8 inches and I would like to grow it longer. I also want to part it down the middle, and my hair is currently not parted. I'm 13 and Asian, by the way. Is there a way to grow my hair to at least shoulder length? If yes, please tell how! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      um if you have split ends which you probably don't as a guy - trim them monthly as they make hair break off and not grow.

      and take a vitamin suppliment for hair or multivitamin at least

      and drink a lot of water and eat healthy

      use a good conditioner - pantene is pretty good

      and yah possibly the extensions if the above is not fast enough...

  23. QUESTION:
    How do you make your hair grow long faster?
    pleassse help, i finally had long hair and for whatever reason i cut it. and i really need my hair to grow long again :/ please helppppppppp

    • ANSWER:
      Hi there,
      About five months ago, I chopped my hair off as well. My reasoning was that I hated my layers (although they were to the middle of my back) and I wanted to start over growing it out as one length. I can just imagine your distress. I cried over the hair cut, which by the way, I did myself. Making it that much harder to blame someone else. :) . SO...there is no miracle growth that will allow your hair to grow at lightning speed, but from experience, I do know a couple tricks that do help the hair to grow faster with less split ends:
      1. Nature's plus ultra hair vitamins, from GNC
      2. Emu Oil, from the Vitamin Shoppe
      3. Jason Biotin shampoo and conditioner
      4. DO NOT use straightners or curlers
      5. Air dry your hair
      6. Use scrunchies or very lose bands that don't have metal on them. Hair clips can be useful as well.
      7. Try not to dye your hair. The hair will break off easier, making it harder to grow.
      8. Eat healthy. Foods rich in protein.

      With all this done properly, your hair should grow about an inch per month...which is double the average rate.

      The vitamins kick in, in about two months...so give them time.

      I recommend measuring your hair with a tape measure to see if it is working.
      Hopefully this helps.

  24. QUESTION:
    How do you grow and maintain long hair?
    I have been trying to grow my hair out for almost a year. I have straight hair but it is thick and fine. Right now, my hair looks pretty good, but I am having a few problems. First, at the very ends of my hair in the back, the ends seem to curl up a little. This only happens in certain places; some of my hair on the ends are straight. How can I make sure my ends stay straight without damaging my hair? Second, I use Garnier conditioner for dry and damaged hair; what should I be using on my hair based on my hair style (straight, fine, thick)? Third, will selson blue (dandruff shampoo) damage my hair if i massage it in my scalp (I have alot of dandruff and dry scalp). Fourth, how can I comb through the back of my hair without combing through tangles? I always seem to damage my hair when I comb through tangles in the back. Also, my hair is layered in the back...Information is VERY much appreciated. I am serious about growing long hair and would appreciate information.
    I went to a barber about 5 months ago and she said the weight of my hair will eventually push the curls out. Is this true?
    What are the best ways to prevent damage?

    • ANSWER:
      long hair has weight, so it will reduce the curling. Garnier makes a 'length and strength' formula that works great, and try combing out your hair when the conditioner is in, and then rinse, this should reduce tangles. The dandruff shampoos out they have now come in many different types for different types of hair. It shouldn't affect or damage your hair, but if you're worried, only use it every other day. Dont wear your up in tight elestic bands with metal bits on them, they KILL long hair. Deep condition once a week, it does wonders. Also, if you want to spend the money, I recommend "mane n' tail" shampoos, they are specially made for length.

  27. QUESTION:
    How am I supposed to grow long hair?
    My hair is about 5 inches from how long I want it. How do I wait that long?! (It will grow in about ten months) I still need to get trims every now and then, but I'm always tempted for a quick fix to get more style for my hair.

    One last thing- do you think lower-back length hair with lots of layers along the face and back of the hair would look good with someone with a round face?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Sora
      I have the same problem so I've done a lot of research, but ill try to keep it short:
      >First, i would recommend a trim about every two months but MAKE SURE TO TELL THE HAIRDRESSER TO CUT OFF AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE (I had a "trim" yesterday and they butchered my hair which is why I suddenly need it to grow)
      >Take vitamins- Biotin is great for hair, nails and skin, I would also reccomend a multivitamin as well
      >Eat fruit and veg- carotene in carrots is supposed to be good as well as many of the antioxidents in fruits
      >Drink LOTS of water- not fizzy drinks etc, at least 8 glasses a day
      >I havn't tried it myself but look into mane N' tail shampoo (yes, for horses, but people have claimed fantastic results)
      >Look into Hair Formula 37- its had AMAZING reviews
      >For the layers, feathered at the front should suit your face- I would also suggest a parting to the side slightly to stop your face from looking two round and symmetrical
      >The back shouldn't be affected by your face but I personally wouldn't suggest too many

      I also have a similar question, so feel free to take answers from it:

    How to make my african hair grow long (male)?
    I'm a 15yo African/Irish male and I would like to grow my short hair into long hair kinda like most (Caucasian) people. I want my hair to be able to cover my forhead mostly and my ears instead of it sticking up. Any advice?

    P.s. My hair is not exactly like african male hair thats really short with BBs' its really wavey and short.
    BBs are when the hair is split into little balls (you mostly see em in the morning when you wake up)

    • ANSWER:
      Oh, my. Sorry, but African and Irish? That is too precious! I can say that, I'm Irish, and I can't imagine what you are going through taming your hair!

      Hair grows no matter what your nationality or skin color. It seems what you are trying to do is tame your hair to grow into a certain cut or style.

      You don't mention whether you have thick, thin, straight, curly, or kinky hair, that all makes a difference in what you can really achieve with your hair.

      Your hair is always growing. The question you need to ask is where to find a trained beutician who can cut and tame your hair into the look you want it to grow into. I suggest spending the money for a one time consult and cut with style at a great salon. Ask questions, learn everything you need to in regards to how to style your hair, what is necessary (versus fluff not necessary) to style your hair how you want it, etc.

      Extremely wavy hair, especially if it's thick, can be unruly to tame. A good salon will be able to consult with you based on your hair type, your own unique style, and what will look best that you can acheive. If you have the Irish curl/wave, and the African roots to boot... you should definately seek at least a one time service of a high paid salon to help you understand your hair growth, and what you can do with it, and how.

      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.

      apply coconut oil for 3 hours twice a week , you will see a great results

  35. QUESTION:
    How to grow long hair. I have ethnic hair, and I have never been sucessful growing my hair past my earlobe.?
    My hair shreds and breaks really bad. Do you know of any products that might help me grow long hair or is someone people genetically prone to have short hair.

    • ANSWER:
      What is your hair type? We are all blessed with healthy beautiful hair.

      Many reasons why your hair snaps & shreds. Afro-Amer (didn't say you do, just guessing) hair is the worst hair type and is fragile.

      Supplements, steroids, hereditary,hair dyes perming, straightening, medications with testosterone, certain antidepressants, menopause, anti-acne, and too much of everything. Add to that the 7,000 + toxics found in your home, plus pollution found outdoors. Your body is crying for help!

      If you're Afro-Amer . . . there's a website just for your hair type. They have lots of tips & suggestions. Check them out.

      The majority of hair problems here are from girls in their 30s, asking how to care for their damaged hair, what product to make their hair grow, why their hair falls out, and why their shampoo or conditioner don't work. Women between 60-80 have that same problem, but it took them years to get there. And those same 30 & under girls are giving advice here? Go figure!

      Even the cheapest shampoo can do magic for your hair, so it must be what you're doing AFTER you wash it. Shampoos and vitamins might make your hair look and feel healthier, but they won’t put more hairs on your head.

      Hair products can NOT REVERSE what is happening to your hair.

    How to treat heat damaged hair and grow healthy long hair?
    I want to know how to gett back smooth flowing hair after its been damaged by heat I.e. Hair strighteners etc. I also wanna know the best way to grow long hair.

    • ANSWER:
      You can't treat damaged hair. The only thing you can do is change your methods to prevent FURTHER damage.

      Remember to always moisturize and protect your hair before you use any heating equipment on it. Paul Mitchell Skinny Serum and Chi Silk Infusion are good protectors, and then a spray like Chi 44 Iron Guard after it's dry will also protect well.

      It's also important not to iron/process your hair every single day - no more than 3 times a week.

  42. QUESTION:
    How long does it take to grow long hair?
    i completly ruined my hair its up to my sholders and its really thin!!..i hate it i want my hair long but my dumbass doesnt stop from puting heat on my hair..:/ how can i grow my hair long? how long would it take...what should i do?

    • ANSWER:
      LOL you're funny. Well hmm... for me, I still put heat on my hair, and by heat I mean EXTREME heat. But I maintain it between washes. Hair that's healthy will grow anywhere from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch a month. Mine started out at my shoulders and is now at the middle of my back.

      Here's what i'm going to suggest:
      -First, make sure you're using a reconstructing shampoo and conditioner. I recommend Joico K-Pak.
      -Before you shampoo, do a hot oil treatment every month. (heat up a small amount of say... Argan oil or Jojoba oil in the microwave in a cup-not too hot- and apply to the ends and to the scalp. Cover head with a processing cap for 10 minutes). Then shampoo out.
      -After you shampoo, apply the conditioner and leave it in. Always apply conditioner starting with the ends, and don't condition your scalp because you have natural oils there already. Do not rinse out the conditioner, and put on the processing cap. Sit under a hooded dryer for 15-20 minutes. then rinse the conditioner out with cold water. (the heat opens up the cuticles to get the good juices in, and the cool water seals the cuticles keeping those good juices in there).
      -If you are going to use heat, like I absolutely must... then use a heat protectant in your hair. Which come in sprays, serums, and lotion forms. I like serums because they coat the strands. A good one is Paul Mitchell Super skinny serum. (it decreases dry time). When you apply serums, pump into your hand and rub quickly as if you were trying to warm up cold hands- which will generate heat. then when you apply to the hair, the heat will open up the hair shaft and let the shine serum penetrate.

      then use heat. ;) that way your hair is as healthy as possible while using heat.
      make sure you get a trim every month too. I also like to take a multivitamin.

      ...GOOD LUCK.

    How can i make my hair grow long fast?
    i have wanted long hair for a really long time but my hair grows sooo slow!! does anyone know some type of home remedy or anything to speed up the growth of my hair so i can grow it long? thanks!

    • 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!

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know how to make black hair grow really long in 3 months?
    I've been trying to grow my hair out for a really long time, but in June I'm going to this banquet and I want to look really nice and I want my hair to be really long (without extensions). So I'm really hoping it will grow fast, and I'm just looking for as many tips as possible. Please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      The key to getting long hair, for black women in particular, is preventing breakage. In most cases your hair is growing at a normal rate, but it breaking off at the ends when manipulated (combed, brushed, etc.) Follow these tips to try and minimize breakage:

      1) Read the ingredient labels on the hair products you buy! Steer clear of mineral oil/parrifinium liquid/petroleum (all the same thing), sulfates, and parabens. If you read these on a product ingredient label, that should raise red flags for you. A lot of products contain these so its some times best to concoct your own hair care products from natural recipes or purchase from natural hair care lines like Burts Bees, Aubrey Organics, Qhement Biologics, Blended Beauty, Avalon Organics, Kinky Curly, and Carol's Daughter.

      1A. Avoid products containing mineral oil like the plague. Aside from being a by product of gasoline, mineral oil clogs your pores which retards growth and prevents moisture from reaching your hair on a molecular level. Instead opt for natural oils like coconut oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, carrot oil, etc to seal moisture into your hair after you wash it. These are not chemically derived and will not give you the negative impact mineral oil does.

      1B. Don't use shampoos with sulfates in them. Sulfates are harsh chemicals found in a lot of shampoos. It's also used in engine degreaser and floor cleaner...ugh.

      1C. If you use gel, avoid the kind with alcohol in it. There are some good moisturizing alcohols, but the kind most often found in gel will dry your hair out making it prone to breakage. Most good ones say "Alcohol Free" on the label.

      1D. You should also stay away from products containing parabens. A lot of scientists speculate that they help cause cancers.

      2) Give co-washing a try. CO-WASHING is a technique where you use only conditioner to wash your hair. Wet your hair in the shower, saturate it with conditioner, then use a wide tooth comb to detangle it, and rinse. Your hair will still be clean because conditioners have detergents in them which are less harsh than the ones found in shampoos. Prefered conditioners for cowashing are Sauve Naturals and White Rain...you don't need an expensive one to do the job.Since water is the best moisturizer, you may co-wash frequently to keep your hair supple and avoid dryness - anywhere from once a week to every other day. Once every two weeks or so, you can do an cleansing apple cider vingar rinse, which clarifies your hair and restores its pH balance.

      3) Maintain a good moisture/protein balance by deep conditioning. You should deep condition at least once a week under a hooded dryer. Your hair needs added moisture and protein to thrive.

      To figure out which one to use, evaluate your hair:

      3A. Does it feel dry? Then you need MOISTURE. Use a mixture of vegetable glycerin, water, honey, aloe gel, and a splash of cheap conditioner. Apply to your hair, put on a baggie, sit under the dryer for 10-15 mins and rinse. If you're not the mixing type, try replacing the above recipe with a bottle of super moisturizing conditioner like Keracare Humectress. Use that with a baggie under the dryer. Seal in the moisture by applying a natural oil afterward.

      3B. Is your hair breaking off a lot when you comb it? Then you need PROTEIN. Mix together some banana baby food and organic coconut milk, put on your hair, cover it with a plastic baggie, sit under the dry for 10-15 mins., and rinse. If your not the mixing type, go to your local beauty supply store and buy an Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment. Most times, protein stops breakage in its tracks.

      4) Wear PROTECTIVE STYLES. A lot of times, hair breaks off due to a lot of manipulation. To counter this, wear styles that don't require you to comb it every day. Some include straw sets, bigger braids like cornrows, twists, afros, etc.) This is important in helping you retain length.

      5) Consider taking a hair growth vitamin like BIOTIN or applying hair growth aid like MEGATEK in conjunction with your hair regimen. Research the two to decide which would be best for your situation.

      6) Avoid direct heat as much as possible. Direct heat dries your hair out making it prone to breakage. This includes blowdrying and flat ironing. Indirect heat like hard hat and bonnet dryers are much less damaging. For instance, if you flat iron your hair everyday, try replacing that with rollersetting your hair under a dryer once a week. As a rule of thumb, the less heat, the better.

      7) Reconsider the tools you're using. Frequently using fine tooth combs can pull your hair out. Invest in some good WIDE TOOTH COMBs instead.

      8) Learn more about your hair by visiting forum.blackhairmedia.com to get more tips and insight about your hair.

      Getting longer hair is a process for most black women. This may seem like a lot of work, but experimenting with these products is interesting and fun...and the benefits (long hair) will far outweight the inconvenience. I should know - I've grown my hair really long after learning all these things.

      Good Luck!

  3. QUESTION:
    HOW LONG CAN MY BLACK HAIR GROW IN 2 MONTHS?
    my hair is black like . and i have like lower neck length hair.i promise myself that i will was my hair once a week and not use any heat and air-dry. i will also leave my hair in a loose ponytail and deep condition once a month. im in summer right now so wen i get back to school i want to have fresh longer prettier hair. how long do you think my hair will grow in 2-3 months?
    p.s im black/cuban
    P.S IM BLACK

    • ANSWER:
      about an 1- 1/12 inches. Hair grows about 1/2 inch a month. Some hair grows faster than that, others slower. But expect about 1- 1/2 inches. And may i may a suggestion? Try to deep condition at least once a week. It's good that your not washing your hair more than once a week (this will give your hair a break from your shampoo which is surprisingly harsh for your hair) and that your not using hot tools, but deep conditioning is something I was told by my stylist to do at least 3x a week, so if you can just do it at least 1x a week, that will help maintain soft, hydrated, healthy hair.

      Hope this helps

And what if my hair is short and thin in some parts, what are the best products and foods and drinks. (for black african american hair)

    • ANSWER:
      If you take good care of your hair, it can grow from 1/2 an inch to 1 inch per month. Use a good shampoo and conditioner. I like garnier fructis. Pantene has good shampoos too, and they make it for our kind of hair. Get your ends trimmed ever 3 or 4 weeks. And try to get all of the dead ends off too. The healtier your ends are, the better your hair will grow. Use a scarf to wrap your hair at night. And try not to use a lot of heat in your hair. Like curling irons and flat irons.
      As far as food and drinks... try to add more fruits and vegetables to your diet.

  7. QUESTION:
    black girls grow their hair long?
    how do we stop our hair from breaking :) The texture of our hair is very different, very fragile and the strands are actually skinnier than other people's hair. Ive learned that black girls hair grow fast! But at the same time it breaks just as fast and thats why it wont stay long. Ive seen an african girl with hair past her butt and I just got really jealous. ALOT of native african girls have long hair but african american girls have short hair. I figure its because they actually know how to care for their hair because the shampoos they make are made JUST for that texture of hair and not a variety of people(white, asian) where people can get confused and put the wrong chemicals in. How do they make their hair strong enough where it wont break so easily. This will be a great help to me. Im having breakage problems. I wore weave to protect my hair and in one month it grew ONE inch! so I know my hair doesn't have a problem growing, it just breaks.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, the secret to growing long hair is protecting the ends and keeping your scalp stimulated/hydrated.

      You're right, black hair (typical, kinky-curly, thick) is different than straight, fine, or loosely curled hair, therefore it must be taken care of differently.

      You may know this, but washing your hair with a shampoo every day (or even multiple times a week) is a NO-NO for black hair. The reason people with straight or loosely curled hair often do this is because their sebum can easily move down their hair shaft moisturizing/hydrating their hair. This is why their hair gets "oily" and must be washed frequently. Because natural black hair is kinky-curly, the sebum is not able to travel down the hair shaft (quickly at least) in order to moisturize the hair. This leaves the hair dry instead of oily.

      This is why it's important for those with Afro hair to manually moisturize and keep harsh detergents (like SULFATES found in a lot of shampoos) to a minimum. It may be OK for you to "co-wash" (washing with conditioners) you hair every few days in order to keep it clean. Conditioners contain the same cleaning agents as shampoos; they only lack the harshness of sulfates. It may be OK to wash with a shampoo once a week (two if you're really trying to protect your hair and if you have no product buildup).

      Also remember to NEVER comb/de-tangle Afro hair while dry, this can cause serious breakage (or shortened hair!) De-tangling should be done while the hair is saturated with conditioner. Brushing (wet or dry) can cause damage, too.

      Not washing your hair everyday or three times a week is not "nasty". Remember: natural black hair is different, so it requires different treatment.

      To sum it up, you need to protect your hair with gentle cleansers and LOW MANIPULATION. Even if you don't have natural hair, constantly combing, brushing and styling relaxed black hair can cause damage. You said your hair grew an inch when you had it in the weave? That's called "protective styling". You can even braid or twist your own hair up to achieve protection for your hair. Ponytails/buns can be good too, but wearing them too much can cause breakage around the hair line and if your ponytail or hair is brushing up against your collar, this can dry out and break off hair.

      These are some of the things that have worked for a lot of people I know. Take whatever you can use.

  9. QUESTION:
    WHy does it take black hair so long to grow ?
    Okay heres the deal I rememeeber before when I didn't get any relaxers at all and I noticed that when I cut my hair like less than a inch...It took one month to grow back and when a couple of white people I know cut all their hair off it grew back in a week does anybody know why this is and please don't tell me genectics and please be descriptive...

    • ANSWER:
      so try this...regular trims are a must, about every 7-9 weeks.(if your hair is really healthy then up the trims to about every 12 weeks, a trim is just a snip off the ends) if its been awhile since you have had a trim then inches may be called for to get to healthy hair. i use vitamin e on fresh washed hair.(its a vitamin that can be purchased where you buy vitamins, cut open capsule, squeeze into hand, rub hands together and apply to hair) dont message into scalp. if you get too much then just rewash it. hair will feel slightly sticky until dry then it will be nice and soft. it tames the frizzies, deep conditions and makes hair grow about three in a month. it takes about a month for the growth part of the e to kick in. the other benefits are instant. dont brush your hair but maybe once a week to message the scalp, i use a wide tooth comb at other times. brushing breaks off hair. i just started biotin vitamins going on three months ago this sat and notice and big growth spurt from that. biotin is cheap and also promotes hair regrowth and growth. i also have the biotin shampoo that i got from a vitamin store online. five bucks for a big bottle and a big bottle of E is about 8 bucks. the biotin is about 3 bucks. i now take my fingers and message my scalp about five times a week, along with the brushing thats a good way to do it without damaging your hair. apply two or three capsules of e to dry hair and message into scalp and hair really well, put damp towel in microwave for 1 min to get hot, then quickly wrap head, a dry towel can be placed over that to help hold in the heat, leave on for 15 min, makes an excellent hot oil treatment. good luck

    Recently I had a shaved cut. The sides, and back were shaved down to a 0.5 grade. The top was left long, which I've relaxed, and dyed deep black.

  12. QUESTION:
    What is the best way for treating damaged black permed hair and to grow it long ?
    Since I relocated to Rhode Island, my hair has damaged(severe spot like breakages at the back and side on my head). I am not sure if it is the water, the different stylists(3) that I have used, braids or the products the stylists use. I have tried Aveda products, Dr. Miracle, Hair Food, Optimum Oil Therapy, Pink Oil etc but no improvement.
    I currently have on weave to cover the damages and have not relaxed my hair for over two months now. I really don't understand why it is soo hard to grow black hair and less information on "how to." Should I let the perm grow out, or should I relax the new growth?

    • ANSWER:
      First leave them relaxers alone...and since its the summer, you should keep your hair either braided or get another sew in. In between which ever you choose to go with, make sure you get a trim and a deep conditioner every 6-8 weeks. Your hair will improve and you will see a difference by winter.Good luck...

  13. QUESTION:
    Why does a white girl's hair grow more progressively than a black girl's hair?
    I heard that your hair is supposed to grow half an inch a month but why does it seam like Indian, Asian, and Caucasian hair can grow long and long but Black hair looks like it stays the same length? Is it because of the hair texture? And what can a black girl with natural hair use to get it to grow longer?

    • ANSWER:
      This has nothing to do with growth at the scalp. It has to do with length retention. Other races can grow longer hair because their hair is stronger than ours. Blacks have a very fragile hair type that easily breaks. So, when you have a hair type that easily snaps then it'll be harder (not impossible) to grow very long hair (mid-back to waist-length). The black girls whom I"ve seen with very long hair know how to take care of it and they also wear protective hairstyles more than 90 percent of the time, this means they rarely wear their hair down or loose; if they do then it'll start breaking off.

      Also, factor in shrinkage. The curlier your hair, the more shrinkage you'll have. So, yeah, your hair is growing, but all the shrinkage will make it look the same length. I know girls whose hair *looks* the same length for 2 years, but their hair has grown considerably during that time. You can only tell if they straighten it. You should know this, though. There's nothing you can do to combat shrinkage. Everyone with curly hair has shrinkage, but extremely curly hair will have more shrinkage than loosely curly hair.

      To get it to grow longer, you'll need to learn how to properly care for it so that it doesn't easily snap. this means wearing protective hair styles more than you might want to (weaves, wigs, braids, extensions, buns, keeping your hair up, etc - anything that will keep you from combing and breaking off your hair).

      BTW, I'm natural and I don't have a problem with hair growth. My hair grows the average 1/2 inch per month. But, that's probably because I know how take care of it. My hair is healthy, strong, and growing and, most importantly, it's not breaking.

      The long hair care forum - http://www.longhaircareforum.com - has many blacks with very long hair. That's a good place to start if you need to learn how to care for your hair. There are other forums dedicated to natural hair if you're natural.

  14. QUESTION:
    BLACK HAIR!!! how to grow black hair in 2 months?
    My hair is thick,nappy and i have basicly no edges.
    i wear alot of weaves... But i want it to be healthier and a bit longer(its uneven,at my neck)

    so my question is how to make it grow?
    What vitamins do you need for your hair?(my mom said the reason my hair doesnt grow because it missing a vitamin)
    what is a blow out and what does it do for you hair?
    how often should i cut my hair ?
    I want it to be healthy and long before high school

    • ANSWER:
      You need to take care of it! Not take vitamins, blowing it out will just damage it more, you need to cut off all of the splits and then you can seek and destroy. I trim my hair maybe once every 6 months now that my ends are healthy and I don't do anything to damage it.

      Now, hair grows only 1/2 inch a month. But, I have grown my hair from neck length to shoulder length in 3 months by following the lovely ladies on longhaircareforum.com, hairlista.com, k-i-s-s.biz and blackhairmedia.com's advice. It really works. But beware. They are going to tell you to stop straightening. It's necessary and your hair will praise you for it.

      Also, don't use the phrase "nappy" your hair probably isn't nappy at all. You most likely just don't know how to care for it. Stop with the weave. It's tearing out your edges.

    • ANSWER:
      Some of my friends have used dreadlock extensions much the same way that I would use "extensions" so that they can start out with them as long as they want.

      A beauty salon can match your hair with real human hair and make your dreads..If I were you, I would do my research and buy everything that the beauty parlor would use for your hair or you'll end up paying a lot. Take someone with you because it may not be something that requires chemicals and from then on you can have your hair done way cheaper.

  19. QUESTION:
    Do braids really grow multiracial/black hair?
    I've been contemplating as to if i should braid my hair over the summer or not just to let it grow. I have natural hair and my hair is at my collar bone. How long should my hair grow with braids within 2 months? Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      Within 2 months you should have 1 inch of hair. Average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month. It's a common myth that braids grow your hair faster. it doesn't. What it does is keep your hair from breaking off because you can't comb and brush and style it; those things break off your hair.

      A quick explanation so you'll understand what I mean. Hair grows about 6 inches per year. If, after a year of trying to grow your hair, you don't have 6 inches in length then this means your hair broke off some point during the year. Lets say that you've been averaging about 3 inches of length per year, for the last few years. this means that each year you're losing 3 inches to breakage. that's a lot of hair. You're only retaining 50% of you growth instead of 100%. It doesn't matter how much hair you actually see. Your hair is ALWAYS growing from the scalp at the same rate. If you get relaxers, you'll notice the growth via new-growth. Same if you dye your hair. New growth means your hair is growing. It's a bit harder to spot with natural hair sans color.

      So, you have 6 inches of growth that's coming out of your scalp every year. But, for some reason you're only seeing 3 inches of longer hair. Why is that? Because of breakage. That's the number one cause why your hair isn't getting longer or stays the same length. People think their hair is growing slow or not growing at all. THat's false. It's because they a lot of breakage at the ends that's causing that. Again, it has nothing to do with growth from the scalp. Hair breaks off at the ends. THat's what keeps your hair from getting longer, even though it's growing regularly from the scalp.

      So, you decide that you want to try braids out to help grow your hair. Great. You keep your hair braided for 6 months. within that 6 months you that your hair is 3 inches longer. Yey! Now you think the braids are making your hair grow faster because you've never seen this kind of growth in 6 months. Can you tell me what's actually happening? No, your hair isn't growing faster. It's growing the same rate it's always grown. Lets take the average growth rate again - 1/2 inch per month. After 6 months your hair should be 3 inches longer. This is normal growth. But, the fact that your hair isn't constantly breaking off is why your seeing all your growth. The key is length retention, which is keeping your hair from breaking off. Otherwise, without the braids, combing and brushing would have broken off your hair and you'd have less growth. Get it? Now, you decide to keep the braids in for the rest of the year (the next 6 months). After the year, you see your hair has gotten 3 inches longer again! Nope, it's not faster hair growth. You've just been able to keep your hair from breaking off, thus retaining all your hair growth for the year.

      I hope this explains it. This is whether or not you're dealing with breakage or just want to speed up your hair growth because you want longer hair quickly. Braids don't make it grow faster. It keeps your hair from breaking off. If you have a problem with breakage and need a way to get your hair longer then wear braids. Just make sure you take care of them and make sure they're not too tight. Tight braids can actually damage your hair and cause breakage.

    How long does hair grow in 3 months?
    in average?
    how many cms?

    I dyed my hair blue black now I regret it. I cant turn back and I have to wait for my hair to grow out!

    • ANSWER:
      Your hairs grows about half an inch on average. But there are ways so speed it up to maybe an inch a month. Your hair is protein. It needs protein. This is a protein called keratin. The way to get more protein into the hair follicle is to encourage blood circulation in your scalp. You can do this by getting head massages which stimulate your scalp and encourage blood flow, which will lead to better hair growth. It's the blood that brings the protein into the hair follicle, where the hair grows. The more protein it gets, the better hair growth you get. But the problem is, there's no way around this. You just have to wait until it grows out, and hope it grows quick. Stimulation of the scalp will help though.

    At what rate does Black hair grow?
    i know peoples hair grows at different rates but i mean on average, if the hair is healthy presumably how long would it grow. i also know that kinky hair appears to be shorter than straight hair so i mean how long is it to the eye, not if it would be straight.

    also do it by months. thanks.
    I KNOW IT GROWS AT HE SAME RATE BUT I AM ASKING *TO THE EYE* HOW LONG WOULD IT GROW. HOW LONG DOES IT * APPEAR* TO GROW!

    • ANSWER:
      Black hair grows at the same rate as everyone else's, 4-6 inches per year which is 1/3-1/2 inch per month. On average, a single strand of hair grows 3-4 years before it falls out. That means an average person can expect their hair to achieve a maximum of 24 inches. There are various textures of kinky hair. Florida Evans from "Good Times" hair only looks about 1 inch long. If she stretched it out it would probably be about 5 inches long. If Florida had a kinky hair texture similar to Joan from "Girlfriends", Florida's hair would look like it was 4 inches long.

      NOTE: The longest I've ever seen a kinky haired person's unmanipulated hair look is about 6 inches. Once they pressed it out it looked like it was about 18 inches long.

  26. QUESTION:
    How to grow out black hair dye/Allergic reactions?
    My natural hair color is brunette. I dyed it black about six months ago & I am absolutely sick of it. I tried Color Oops, all that did was make my scalp feel like it was burning & itching. I don't know if it was an allergic reaction or not. I've never had any allergic reactions from dying my hair in the past, but I'm gonna be safe and not bleach it like I was originally planning to, because I don't want any damage done to my scalp. So, I thought, maybe I should just grow it out. If I cut my hair short, about shoulder-length, will it grow out? & If so, what are ways to make my hair grow faster so the black will come out?! My hair is very long now, but I have no problem cutting it. I'll do whatever it takes to make it my natural color again :( Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      It will take about 1-2 years to grow out, when I dyed my hair it went to a dark brown when I just wanted it medium brown so I went out and bought a medium blonde dye, it didn't have any pre lightener in it so it managed to go to a medium brown. I don't know if this will work on you as black is a very hard colour to shift.

      Cutting your hair does not make your hair grow any faster, hair grows around 1/2 an inch per month, quicker in the summer and shorter in the winter.

      You say you would do whatever it takes to make it your natural color again, I would suggest going to the hairdressers and getting it done it should cost around £40 make sure they do a patch test 24 hours before it to make sure you aren't allergic .

  29. QUESTION:
    Do white people's hair grow faster than black people's hair?
    I'm starting to wonder. Like, if a white girl cuts her hair several inches, in about 3 months it seems you can't even tell.

    Yet, if a black girl cuts her hair, why does it seem to take all year for it to grow back?

    My beautician says that hair grows about 1/4 an inch a month, is this true and does this apply to white people's hair?

    Also, how can I grow my hair out? It's just past the bottom of my neck and I want it about five inches longer or more.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm white, and my hair grows EXTREMELY slowly. I think it depends on weird quirks in your genes, not your race.

      And to grow your hair out, just.. Don't not cut it, because if you let the ends split to heck, they'll start getting breakage. Have someone "trim" the ends every couple of months, and you'll have healthy growing hair.
      This being said, everyone's hair has a limit to how long it will grow. My friend has hair down to her waist, but my mom says hers has never grown past her ribcage. It just stops at a certain point, and if you cut it, it'll only go back to that point.

    how long will it take for my hair dye to grow out?
    Well i dyed my hair black about 2 months ago and parts of it are already going brown, but i was wondering, how long will it take for all of it to go back natural because i want to dye my hair red, not like bright red but like reddy brown but more so red. My black hair dye was nice and easy perminate so i wanted to know how long it will take till i can dye my hair red. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on how long your hair is.
      If you want your natral colour to come back, then (I know this sounds stupid) But use anti-dandruff shampoo and condiation, it will make your dyed hair colour fade quickly, just use it every time you wash your hair, it will go quicker.
      I have done this, i do it every time i wanna change my hair colour. i went from black, to bleached with streaks in to red to purple lol! And you can dye your hair straight aways because its been two months, so your not doing it too often.

      Good luck =D

  34. QUESTION:
    How are Hawaiian and hispanic women able to grow thier hair so long?
    DOES THEIR HAIR GROW FASTER THAN BLACK OR WHITE WOMEN? it seems like it does I work with many of them when they end up getting a new haircut and in a couple of months it's back down to their waist. I'm amazed how does it grow back that fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone's hair basically grows the same...about .44mm per day and on average 6 inches per year.

      Even factoring in your age, genetics and hormones this is still going to be your basic average.

      Now...they do tend to use less coloring, straightening and perming solutions in their hair leading to less breakage and needing less trims.

      Their hair is also typically straight or slightly wavy so it may give the effect of growing longer than someone with very wavy or curly hair.

  35. QUESTION:
    How fast does it take to grow my hair out 4 inches?
    I am a guy and i have very very thick black hair.. it grows pretty fast i would say, above average for sure, i need haircuts very often, well i buzzed my hair completly off about 1 month ago and its already about 1 inch grown out, i want to get 4 inches, how long do you think it will take with my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows approximately 1/2 inch a month, and it also seems to grow faster right after you cut it. Your hair may not grow as fast as it did the first month, so I would say give it about 6 months, but it could take as long as 8.

  37. QUESTION:
    How can I fade my dyed black hair?
    I dyed my hair black months ago, maybe 4 months ago?
    and I'm way tired of it. It is naturally a brown color.
    I went to the salon once and tried getting it stripped and dyed a reddish color and it was an expensive long process and in the end it didn't even fade the black.
    Are their any home remedies of fading it? I heard Dish soap, will that work even if it was dyed months ago?

    By the way I really couldn't care less if it damages my hair a little, it grows back.

    Please no negative comments, thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      DONT use hydrogen peroxide! your hair will NEVER be normal again.
      Get a few bottles of color stripper from walmart and use one once every other week. I've been in your situation, and trust me, it will gradually fade. No dangerous peroxide needs to touch your beautiful hair.

  38. QUESTION:
    How long will black dye take to fade?
    I dyed my hair black about a month ago and its still completely black. I had medium brown hair and would like to go back to that color of slightly darker. I used nice + easy. I was trying to grow my hair out for the first time but the dye messed it up a bit. Will my hair look bad during the transition? should I just cut it or wait it out?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the brand of dye you used. the nicer they dye, the longer it will last. The black will probably last about 1 month or so, and then start turning to dark brown, that's how mine was.

  39. QUESTION:
    How long will it take for my hair to grow longer, and back to it's natural color?
    Ok, so like, two christmas's i died my hair black, n i have blonde hair, well my blonde hair is about my my ear point, and i want to know when it will grow out so my blonde is at should point.

    And how much does hair grow in a month/year? When using curling chemicals or heat for the straightener almost everday? How many times a month or couple months should i go in to cut off any split ends?

    I really want to grow my hair out to about my chest with it being blonde, but it's growing very slowishly. haha. But what else can i do to help? I use this repairing shampoo and conditioner when i take a shower, it makes my hair all soft, but idk if that's going to help the growing process.

    • ANSWER:
      im going through the saame process, its been a year and a half for me and my natural color is like.. at my chin. so it seems like my hair might grow faster than yours. I hear that massaging your scalp helps it grow, like when you wash it to massage your hair. it stimulates the hair follicles. other than that i havent found anything that works. good luck!

    Any advice?
    My roots are extremely nappy like wool...I stopped using relaxers a while ago when I watched a very disturbing video about what it does to our hair and brains....so my hair is now all natural....I have split ends and all but I am extremely scared to trim them...its honestly painful when I cut my hair
    oh and another thing...I wash my hair once a week and when its a bit more dry I use a hot comb...does this contribute to the breakage of hair? If so should I just dry it natuarally with a towel thats all

    • ANSWER:
      Are you natural, relaxed, or have some other type of chemical in your hair?

      On average, hair grows 1/2 inch per month, or 6 inches per year. This is pre-determined by our genes and nothing can change this. Your hair could grow faster or slower, but most people will probably fall within the average. Your hair will never stop growing from the scalp and nothing can slow it down. There are a few exceptions to this, for instance, people stricken with cancer and who are on chemotherapy will experience the hair loss and their hair will stop growing from the scalp. If you're in fine healthy then nothing will stop your hair from actually growing and nothing can slow down that pre-determined growth. So, if you're expecting your hair to grow 3 inches in 3 months then you have the incorrect expectations regarding hair growth and you're expecting a miracle that will never happen. With hair growth you have to be patient because hair can't grow as fast as we want it to grow.

      With all of this said, the number one reason why people don't see longer hair is most likely do to length retention - their hair constantly breaks off which keeps it the same length or shorter. Blacks have the most fragile hair type and it EASILY breaks off, and this is probably why you don't see many blacks with hair way down the their backs. I remember when I was relaxed my hair would grow but then I'd experience a lot of breakage that would set me back two inches of hair, and this was a constant thing: growth, long hair, breakage, shorter hair.

      Since you have fragile hair you have to be very, very gentle with it. Many people don't realize that rough combing, brushing, styling, and using a lot of heat contributes to the breakage. I always had breakage with a relaxer and I especially noticed breakage when I'd comb or brush my hair. It also depends on the what type of brush and comb you use. Buy a wide-tooth comb and be very careful with boar bristle brushes and small tooth combs because these can lead to breakage. When you wash make sure to untangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb and when you have conditioner or shampoo in your hair - this will help make it easier to untangle and you'll have less breakage because of it.

      Chemicals on fragile hair can break also lead to breakage. Your hair is already fragile and then you add the bleach/dyes and chemical process likes relaxers, curly perms, and texturizers and what not and this makes it even more prone to breakage. Really, it's not surprising that many people who have relaxers don't have extremely long hair and this is because the harsh chemicals in relaxers thin out the hair over time and it also causes breakage, not to mention it also dries out the hair. All the breakage and burning scalp is the reason why I went natural. Believe me, the chemicals in relaxers are so harsh that it can permanently burn/scar your scalp to the point that you can have permanent bald spots.

      Also, another thing, I don't have enough space to go over it, lol, but the hair goes through a life cycle. The growth phase, a phase where it stops growing, and then the shedding phase. Every strand of your hair is in a different cylce within the life cycle, which is why your hair doesn't shed all at once. This keeps your hair from growing past a certain point, it's called Terminal Length. The growth phase is approximately 2-6 years and everyone's hair is on a different growth phase, which is why some people aren't able to grow hair past their necks, while others are able to grow hair past their butts. People on a 2 year growth phase will have shorter hair, for example. This is also pre-determined by your genes.

      EDIT: Not getting rid of those split ends will eventually lead to breakage, so you can keep them around because you don't want to cut your hair, but eventually your hair will break off because of it. Splits travel up the hair shaft, which means if you go longer without trimming then you'll end up having to cut your hair shorter because of it. Is it worth it? You might want to start using a flat iron. Make sure you don't use too much heat on your relaxed ends (assuming you're transitioning) because this can break them off. Heat dries out your hair so make sure it's very moisturized and that you use a very good heat protectant to guard against heat damage.

We take our hair through a lot and in the mist of it all it stays with us no matter how bad it's treated. After while your locks get tired, weak, brittle and unhealthy. We expect our hair to do right all the time, but it cannot accomplish what you want it to do unless it's treated right. Here are some tips on how to strengthen you hair, keep it healthy and grow thicker. These tips has help me so much

1. If your hair is frizzy and brittle at the ends that means it's unhealthy. You should cut you ends at least of inch every six to eight weeks. This process keeps your hair looking healthy and makes it grow more evenly. Only clip the damage part of the ends. Make sure it's even.

2. Balding could be a sign of stress, heredity, over processing, side effects from medications, illness or the use of excessive heat used on the hair. Massage your scalp gently with your fingertips, great way to do it is when you are applying moisturizer to you hair. Massage for about two minutes at least every other day. This simulates your hair follicles so that your hair can grow.

3. Use a good moisturizing conditioning shampoo. Wash your hair at least once a week. I wash mine once a week, especially when it's damage to get it back on the right track! I love Pantene shampoo made for women of color, Motions or Cream of Nature all three cleanses your hair from build up while conditioning, strengthening and softening the hair for easy combing.

4. If your hair is weak use a Hot Oil Treatment once a week after shampooing your hair. Follow the directions on the back and you are good to go, but leave the oil in for at least 20 minutes. Once your tresses shows signs of strength and gets back healthy do the treatment once every two weeks to keep it that way.

5. After washing let your hair air dry if possible. You want to try not to use too much heat on your hair. Hot combing and flat ironing damages the hair over time. So try to use them at least twice a week, wear you hair in a ponytail or put a wig on if you're into stuff like that on some days, but try not to put the ponytail too tight it can pull the hair out.

6. Hair dyes and perms can damage hair if misused. So if you use these chemicals you need to condition your hair weekly. Rinses are good for the hair too.

7. Eating the right foods are a for sure way to keep our dark and lovely tresses beautiful! Eating foods with Vitamins B12, B6, and E are excellent for healthy hair and skin. You can also purchase hair supplements to take too.

8. Brushing is a big no, no! Brushing actually pulls the hair out and does not massage the scalp like a comb does. So only brush when putting in a ponytail or certain style. I would not recommend daily brushing.

9. If you have the time wraps are great! You usually don't need any curling irons or flat irons during this process, depending what style you want.

10. Last but not least. Wear a satin cap or scarf on your head before bed. While you sleep you toss and turn and you hair creates friction while on the pillow which causes your hair to break off. They now have scarves with conditioners but in them which are good for keeping your hair strong and your style in place.

I follow every last one of this steps, they have worked for me and I wouldn't have hair like I do if I didn't do them. Like they say, anothing frames the face like a beautiful head of haira.

If you think you need something with more power! Provillus.com has just what you need to get your beautiful hair back. This product is for all hair types.

Even men of other races, asian and white men grow straight long flowy hair that all women desire naturally, but black women (without the perms and wigs) grow masculine hair. Why is that?

    • ANSWER:
      Actually, studies show that women from India have the most body hair. They have brown or black skin, so the hair is less obvious from a distance.

  8. QUESTION:
    How Can Black Women Grow Their Hair Thicker and Longer?
    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:
      im doing exactly the smae thing
      my brother, whos only a year older - his hair grows so fast yet mine takes ages for just an inch.
      ive started taking parental vitamin pills which have sped up the growth and cut off my relaxed damaged hair.
      my hairs grown to my ears in 5 months.
      good luck!

  9. 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.

  11. QUESTION:
    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.

  13. 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

  14. QUESTION:
    does anybody no how to grow long hair fast!!! (for a black man)?
    i just got signed to a record label and im trying to do somthing different to my image

    • ANSWER:
      I have coarse hair that naturally grows, lol, so I'm not sure what the difference is.

      Despite what others will tell you, there isn't a way to make your hair grow faster. You'll just have to be patient. Average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month, 6 inches per year. Patience is what you need. Plus, if this deal goes through and you do come out with an album then it probably won't be for a couple of years. Good luck.

      BTW, I'd stay far away from grease. It does nothing but coat your hair and make your hair greasy. If your hair is natural then you don't need to put anything on your scalp. Those with relaxed hair have to grease or oil their scalp because relaxers dry out their hair and scalp.

      Focus on length retention, that means you need to keep your hair from breaking off and this is what's need to get your hair longer.

    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.

  18. QUESTION:
    Black women with natural hair, does it grow longer when its natural & not permed or vice-versa?
    I like natural hair better on black women, even though they look good with both. It just says something about the individual more-in my opinion-if you choose to wear your hair natural! Is it harder to manage? Are you limited to fewer hairstyles going natural, have more options, or about the same? If more black men liked natural hair on black women, would more wear it, or do you think it matters. Or does it take mainstream society to accept it as being beatiful. What about black men, do you have a natural hairstyle and how are you perceived? What about having natural hair screams "criminal" in your opinion to mainstream society? If natural hair is so hard to manage, how did black women style their hair before perms..hotcombs..& what about black women in ancient cultures...shouldn't there be centuries worth of knowledge on how to deal with natural hair since creation..any speculation on how this knowledge got lost.(I know this question became a lot more complicated!)
    sorry for rambling!

    • ANSWER:
      I wear my hair natural all the time. My favorite hairstyle is the afro. Natural hair is just as versatile as relaxed hair. Women can wear braids, wash-n-go, afros, twists, bantu knots, and if you want to, you can straighten it. For me, it's not hard to manage at all. I love waking up every morning without a shower cap and washing my hair. You do have to make sure that it is well conditioned. Natural black hair needs lots of moisture but not grease...grease is not good for our hair. It actually retards the growth of your hair because of all the synthetic oils in hair grease. As in black men liking natural hair more on black women, it would help, but it takes a lot of soul searching inside to realize that we are NATURALLY beautiful...without all the weaves, perms, skin lighteners, and etc. Blacks have been taught that we were ugly every since the first African arrived here. It is still seen in the media today. The more European features on a black woman, the more she will be in the spotlight...yes like Beyonce. Since I have been wearing my hair natural, I have not been approached by many black men. I have been approached by other men of other ethnicities. I don't know what it is, but they find me more attractive then I did before with relaxed hair. I just think that people with natural hair do not believe what mainstream society thinks what beautiful is suppose to be which is European aka Caucasian looking. We naturals believe that we are truly beautiful just like God made us. We believe that Black is beautiful! To learn more about the black culture, I suggest reading "Hair Story:Untangling the Roots of Black Hair In America" by Ayna D. byrd & Lori L. Tharps and "The Color Complex: The Politics of Skin Color Among African Americans" by Kathy Russell, Midge Willson, & Ronald Hall

  19. QUESTION:
    How long will it take for a black man to grow a big afro?
    I practically don't have any hair, it's very short but I want to grow a afro. How long will it take me to grow a big afro? as big as this man:

    http://www.mooncostumes.com/image/7199

    how many months? or how many years?

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on your hair's growth pattern and how well you take care of it.

      Do as the women with naturals do and wash your hair like every three days or once a week. Use good conditioner. Use something with rosemary oil or mint oil to wash or condition. Keep your hair moisturized.

      Eat right, exercise.

      They have brought back hot picks and that will help you achieve the "halo" thing.

      Good luck.

  20. QUESTION:
    How can I grow long black curly male hair properly and dye it light blond properly?
    I am an Italian-American (with tan skin) man who is 23 years old. I have been trying to grow my hair long for the longest time. I have very poor self-esteem and I would feel better with longer hair. And then dying it blond would also be a plus. Now I am heterosexual and yeah it may be gay to have my hair dyed blond but ever since I was younger and learned about sexuality. My mom says my hair will stick out to the sides if I try to grow it long. I am a metalhead and I want to have my hair longer. The problem is that my hair is curly/wavy and I have not had my hair long since I was about 5 years old. It was not shoulder length though. This time I want to grow it to shoulder length and even longer. How can I do this effectively and how can I effectively dye it light blond? I also have pretty thin hair and my mom says I could lose my hair very soon. I seriously want to have my hair long and have it dyed light blond (as light as Billy Idol) and I will not back out of it.

    • ANSWER:
      The weight of your hair as it grows longer may help to pull some of the curl out of it. If you are going to dye this on your own, I would double process it, starting with a light brown or dark blonde, then go for the lighter shade with a second application. . . less chance of it going orange on you. Your best be would be to have it done in a salon.

  21. QUESTION:
    (For men) If I shave my forearms, will the hair grow back faster/longer/thicker?
    I have black hair on my arms and my arms are hairy. If I shave my forearms will they look better and will the hair grow back faster/longer/thicker?

    • ANSWER:
      It has been proved that shaving body hair makes no difference to the properties of the hair when it grows. The only problem is that you will get stubble as it start to come through the skin and it could be itchy. Once it reaches it's proper length as before you removed it it will be soft and downy.

  22. 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.

  23. QUESTION:
    Should men have long hair?
    I'm an Black male.I have dreadlocks to my shoulders and i plan on growing them to my waist.Should i grow it longer or cut it?My Father and Uncles tell me it looks unprofessional.I also wear golden studs in both ears and people insult me for that too.Should men have long hair?I always hear women criticizing white men for having long hair, but not black men.Why is that?

    • ANSWER:
      If they are well kept dreads... I love it when men have long well kept dreads! I think that if you look good with the dreads/long hair... GO FOR IT! :)

      Since you are African American, you most likely can pull off amazing dreads. Just make sure they look nice and neat and not messy. I know a guy who's a therapist and he has dreads and he wears one of those dread beanie things...

      EDIT** plus, if a white man could pull off long hair, I'd go for him!

  24. 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.

    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.

    Why did God curse us black people with bad hair?

    Black women should shave their heads like me.
    Black people can only grow afros.

    That's why you black women buy weaves from India. You wish you had long silky hair.

    Fashion emergency!!! how can i as a black man get long straight hair?
    i want hair like this
    http://www.imdb.com/media/rm296389888/tt0325710

    and i need it by the end of july...i just started to grow my hair out...it has been cut real low,.,,,would it be possible to have hair like this by the end of july

    • ANSWER:
      1.) African hair does not grow slower than any other race.

      2.) That is physically possible to have that long of hair if you hair is a fade or even 2 inches. That hair is about what, 10 inches? That will take over a year.

      3.) It's not physically possible for you to have straight hair. If you want it straight, a flat iron or a relaxer will give you that. The next best thing is a wig. There is no way you can grow that fast. I'm very sorry.

      Hoped that helped! ♥

  31. 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.

  32. QUESTION:
    Why Chinese women dont shave their bodies, and why chinese men never grow facial hair?
    I found this contradictory, it's summer time and you see these ladies wearing sleeveless dresses with long strands of black and thick hair coming out from their underarms and some fine hair coming from their legs. Not all of them, but it's more than half for sure.

    On the other hand, all guys faces seem to be perfectly shaved. No mustaches, goatees, stubbles, sideburns or beards.
    I said not all of them, but a good number of ladies and men don't do the above.

    Is it a culture thing?
    Do ladies find facial hair unatractive?
    Are guys careless about body hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Thats not true I have alot of chinese friends and they all shave
      And my uncle haa a full grown beard

  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.

  34. QUESTION:
    Does chest hair grow thicker?
    im 16 years old i have some chest hair, its pretty long like 1.5 to 2 cms long buts its not thick black hair. its thin hairs and its not that full like a mans chest hair . will it grow thicker as i get older? by the way does chest hair really turn off girls?

    • ANSWER:
      chest hair does grow thicker just like any other body hair i.e. nostril hair, armpit hair, pubic hair, facial hair, leg hair, naval trassure trail hair...... do you get what i mean?

      It will grow even after you have shaved them. Whether or not it will become thick, it depends on the gene actually. Not everyone has chest hair.

      And yes, chest hair is kinda sexy and turns ppl on! It is a sign of how manly you are....

    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/281x211.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.

  36. QUESTION:
    Doesn't it annoy you when otherwise perfectly handsome men shave their hair off?
    OK I know that's there's chicks who have it for the bald guys, but you know, I DON'T. I hate it when otherwise perfectly hot men shave their hair off. I can't tell you how many times I've looked at a guy and thought "Damn! He'd be really fine if he only grew some hair!" For example, black men, who could have a handsome head of curls but instead decide to piss it all away by shaving it off or hiding it in braids. Not necessarily long hair, but just a classic natural short, cropped or military cut looks great, or when they slick it back...yum!

    • ANSWER:
      I don't like that either. I prefer a man with some hair. I don't like bald or receeding. Or military cuts.

      Having braids are too long. If his hair is longer than mine, NOOO!!

  40. QUESTION:
    Can I get a job as a black man with very long hair?
    I am 21 years old and I live near Detroit, Michigan.

    I am of course African American.

    My mom said I cant get no Computer job cause I wont get hired if I wear braids in my hair. I dont have braids in my hair now, but I am now growing my hair out now.

    My hairstyles I plan to wear with my long hair will be an afro or braids.

    Can I get a computer job or any type of job anywhere with a afro or braids in my hair?

    Can I get a computer job with wearing my hair in a short afro?

    can somebody please give me some advice, cause I dont want to wear a bald head or extremely short hair just to get hired for jobs.

    EXTRA INFO:

    My mom also said if I wear my hair short it wont look nappy.

    My mom said the reason why they wont hire me for a computer job or any type of job with long hair is because my hair will look nappy when its very long.
    I am majoring in computer information systems in college.

    • ANSWER:
      They shouldn't base who they hire on appearances like that that is discrimination (although i have heard that happen....)
      I dont see anything wrong with braids or a NEAT afro, of course we dont see anything wrong with it, because to us it is a cultural thing and is nothing new. To the corporate world they tend to associate it with...you know. Thugs, gangstas, rappers, or street-style.
      Well however u decide to wear it just make sure its neat. if I were u I would just get it cut, a low hair cut, not bald. Like how Ludacris has his hair for example. I think the other girl had a good idea, cut it first, get the job, and show your skills, and after a while let it grow out

  42. QUESTION:
    Do you think the main reason why black men/women have short hair is from the chemicals or genetics?
    i think its a combination-
    i've seen some black people who are really dark skinned who's hair is down to their waist and in dreads-
    i have an afro for 2 1/2 years and my hair is straightened past my shoulders- i am sure if i grow it 3-6 years more it would be in an afro past my shoulders- not just straightened- given i am multi-racial- but some of my relatives have long hair and in dreads and from what i know they are not mixed!
    and the front of my hair is to my nose- the bangs-
    i don't think its so much if someone is dark or light skinned- i think its just because of the chemicals in the perms that fry and dry it- my hair was super long prior to having people perm it- i was listening to these videos and it kind of had me thinking!

    • ANSWER:
      It's because they chose to. My hair was down to the middle of my back in high school but I cut it to my ears in college. Now two years later its just now past my shoulders. I guess mine just take longer to grow.

    • ANSWER:
      omg, im guessing youre white.

      before you grow anything out, you need a haircut.also try applying tresemme smoothing milk, its not actual milk--anyway apply it to wet hair.

      as for the curls you could try sun silk's totally twisted hair cream/gel. its amazing, it defines curls but keeps it soft :)

      hope that helps.

      (ps: pick ONE hair product that works best, dont try them together--you'll gunk up your hair.)

    I am Afro-caribbean and I've got thick, black and dark brown hair. I cut it in November of 2008, (all of the relaxer ends and left my natural hair to grow) BUT I relaxed it in April of 2009 after having been without a relaxer for almost a year...I would like to know, really, what are the best ways to grow long hair..I already plan on relaxing my hair only once a year...and since the relaxer already has drying effects on hair, I do moisturize my ends with Garnier Fructis Leave in conditioner..I plan on washing and conditioning, then deep conditioning my hair every 3 weeks (yes, remember, I have Afro hair, so, shouldn't I be washing my hair, less than someone who has more oily scalp...) ANyways, give me any good advices...Men and women are both welcome..Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Monthly trims? You gotta be kidding.

      Hair only grows around 1/2 inch a month.

      My hair is in very good condition, and guess what? I hardly ever trim it. It's almost waist length now. What trimming actually does is make your hair even more prone to split ends!

      What i do, and it takes a while, is go round my hair and chop the split ends off if i notice them. Literally, the strands. It takes a while, but trimming it continually hinders your growth a lot. I trim the ends maybe every 6 months.

      Conditioning it is a good thing. It makes it easier to brush (less knots) and thus preventing the splitties even further.

Grow Long Black Hair Fast

When you do moisturize your hair with a quality all natural hair oil, the oil will lock in the moisture into your hair shaft and give your relaxed hair a soft, shiny and healthy look. So in this article I will show you simple ways to keep your hair moisturized

Relaxed hair is damaged hair and damaged hair has a tendency to be dry, brittle , porous and weak. That is why it is very important that you keep your relaxed hair moisturized

Here is what you will need

A good herbal hair oil

Natural oil

To make relaxed hair healthy find a light based hair oil moisturizer for your hair

avoid hair oils with lanolin oil, and petroleum and go all natural, because relaxed hair is already damaged there is no sense in using product that contain chemicals that will worsen the damaged hair, such oils as I mentioned above are known to block moisture from penetrating the hair shaft which leads to frizzy, dry hair and hair that will break. The one hair oil that I can recommend for relaxed hair would be Mira hair oil

Choose A powerful Natural Oil that works with your relaxer

When it comes to taking care or relaxed hair natural virgin oils are the best. A good hair oil is coconut oil but you can get it even better by using virgin coconut oil extracted from the coconut water rather than the kernel. This is an expensive oil and can't be found readily on the market. There is one product that has it and it is called Mira hair oil. Virgin oils will quickly seal moisture into relaxed hair and will improve the healthy and appearance of hair that has been relaxed.

Use The GRO hair oil. Separate your hair in to four parts and distribute the GRO hair oil between in each section, take a little amount of the oil and distribute o each section -there is no need to soak the hair with the oil

To make your relaxed hair healthy be sure to seal in Moisture to your hair shaft

So when it comes to taking care of relaxed hair , finding a natural hair oil is important, if you buy oils from the market you will need two or three different kinds but there is one product that does it all in one bottle and it is called Mira hair oil . With this oil you also get natural hair growth herbs which will make your relaxed hair even healthier and it will spring some life to your hair roots and clean you scalp. And because relaxers will potential affect the scalp and slow down hair growth. Mira hair oil will detoxify your scalp and allows your hair follicles to grow healthy once again.

  3. QUESTION:
    Why does Caucasian hair grow super fast and long but African/Black people hair don't?
    i'm tryna grow my hair out
    wth? how is this a suggested category?

    • ANSWER:
      The hair follicle of a Caucasian is circular, which causes their hair to grow out straight...the hair follicle of black person is shaped like a slit and causes our hair to grow out in tight curls/angles...

      I'm sure you hear white people talking about how their hair becomes oily quickly and black people talk about how their hair is super dry...well the shape of the follicle has a lot to do with that...

      drier hair doesn't have as much moisture...hair that doesn't have that much moisture breaks off easily...hence why it appears that black hair doesn't grow as fast. Not to mention that a lot of us chemically straighten our hair, which actually dries it out even more...creating more breakage...

      Our hair grows at the same rate as every other race. If our hair is properly moisturized, it is just as capable of retaining a lot of length.

    I have real frizzy hair...black peoples hair and i can not get it to grow very long for the life of me! what is sumthing i could do with it or put in it to make it get long or grow a lil faster?

    • ANSWER:
      i know pple think it is difficult to maintain black hair but it is not...my advice to u.... wash regularly (i wash mine every week). it stimulates growth...use less direct source of heat such as hair tongs (i know u r thinking so how do i get my hair to lay flat). and don't relax your hair to d tip...doing d undergrowth is enough. after washing ur hair you can use a blow dryer to stretch it and make it soft...tying it into a tight bun works as well. dats wat i do nd i get comments like wat weavon r u using from pple... i never use weave.

  7. QUESTION:
    Ways to make black people hair grow fast and longer?
    After I got it permed I don't know what to do with my hair.

    • ANSWER:
      Use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Sulfates are the lather in shampoos but you can't make hair moisturized and dry it out at the same time. L'oreal EverSleek is really good. Stop perming it. I personally think hair grows faster when it's natural. You trim it and grow it pretty much like every one else does just eat healthy foods and keep it moisturized. Try their humidity defying leave in creme it's really good :) Eat romaine lettuce every day with or without other foods it's your choice it made my hair grow an inch in a few days. Imagine what that would do in a few months' time! :) Go for it. Hope I helped God bless.

    Does anyone know how to make black hair grow really long in 3 months?
    I've been trying to grow my hair out for a really long time, but in June I'm going to this banquet and I want to look really nice and I want my hair to be really long (without extensions). So I'm really hoping it will grow fast, and I'm just looking for as many tips as possible. Please help me!

    • ANSWER:
      The key to getting long hair, for black women in particular, is preventing breakage. In most cases your hair is growing at a normal rate, but it breaking off at the ends when manipulated (combed, brushed, etc.) Follow these tips to try and minimize breakage:

      1) Read the ingredient labels on the hair products you buy! Steer clear of mineral oil/parrifinium liquid/petroleum (all the same thing), sulfates, and parabens. If you read these on a product ingredient label, that should raise red flags for you. A lot of products contain these so its some times best to concoct your own hair care products from natural recipes or purchase from natural hair care lines like Burts Bees, Aubrey Organics, Qhement Biologics, Blended Beauty, Avalon Organics, Kinky Curly, and Carol's Daughter.

      1A. Avoid products containing mineral oil like the plague. Aside from being a by product of gasoline, mineral oil clogs your pores which retards growth and prevents moisture from reaching your hair on a molecular level. Instead opt for natural oils like coconut oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, carrot oil, etc to seal moisture into your hair after you wash it. These are not chemically derived and will not give you the negative impact mineral oil does.

      1B. Don't use shampoos with sulfates in them. Sulfates are harsh chemicals found in a lot of shampoos. It's also used in engine degreaser and floor cleaner...ugh.

      1C. If you use gel, avoid the kind with alcohol in it. There are some good moisturizing alcohols, but the kind most often found in gel will dry your hair out making it prone to breakage. Most good ones say "Alcohol Free" on the label.

      1D. You should also stay away from products containing parabens. A lot of scientists speculate that they help cause cancers.

      2) Give co-washing a try. CO-WASHING is a technique where you use only conditioner to wash your hair. Wet your hair in the shower, saturate it with conditioner, then use a wide tooth comb to detangle it, and rinse. Your hair will still be clean because conditioners have detergents in them which are less harsh than the ones found in shampoos. Prefered conditioners for cowashing are Sauve Naturals and White Rain...you don't need an expensive one to do the job.Since water is the best moisturizer, you may co-wash frequently to keep your hair supple and avoid dryness - anywhere from once a week to every other day. Once every two weeks or so, you can do an cleansing apple cider vingar rinse, which clarifies your hair and restores its pH balance.

      3) Maintain a good moisture/protein balance by deep conditioning. You should deep condition at least once a week under a hooded dryer. Your hair needs added moisture and protein to thrive.

      To figure out which one to use, evaluate your hair:

      3A. Does it feel dry? Then you need MOISTURE. Use a mixture of vegetable glycerin, water, honey, aloe gel, and a splash of cheap conditioner. Apply to your hair, put on a baggie, sit under the dryer for 10-15 mins and rinse. If you're not the mixing type, try replacing the above recipe with a bottle of super moisturizing conditioner like Keracare Humectress. Use that with a baggie under the dryer. Seal in the moisture by applying a natural oil afterward.

      3B. Is your hair breaking off a lot when you comb it? Then you need PROTEIN. Mix together some banana baby food and organic coconut milk, put on your hair, cover it with a plastic baggie, sit under the dry for 10-15 mins., and rinse. If your not the mixing type, go to your local beauty supply store and buy an Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment. Most times, protein stops breakage in its tracks.

      4) Wear PROTECTIVE STYLES. A lot of times, hair breaks off due to a lot of manipulation. To counter this, wear styles that don't require you to comb it every day. Some include straw sets, bigger braids like cornrows, twists, afros, etc.) This is important in helping you retain length.

      5) Consider taking a hair growth vitamin like BIOTIN or applying hair growth aid like MEGATEK in conjunction with your hair regimen. Research the two to decide which would be best for your situation.

      6) Avoid direct heat as much as possible. Direct heat dries your hair out making it prone to breakage. This includes blowdrying and flat ironing. Indirect heat like hard hat and bonnet dryers are much less damaging. For instance, if you flat iron your hair everyday, try replacing that with rollersetting your hair under a dryer once a week. As a rule of thumb, the less heat, the better.

      7) Reconsider the tools you're using. Frequently using fine tooth combs can pull your hair out. Invest in some good WIDE TOOTH COMBs instead.

      8) Learn more about your hair by visiting forum.blackhairmedia.com to get more tips and insight about your hair.

      Getting longer hair is a process for most black women. This may seem like a lot of work, but experimenting with these products is interesting and fun...and the benefits (long hair) will far outweight the inconvenience. I should know - I've grown my hair really long after learning all these things.

      Good Luck!

  13. QUESTION:
    How can black hair grow faster and longer?
    I'm black I tried different things to grow longer and now I have my hair perm what should I do.

    • ANSWER:
      I agree with Momo, the best way to grow it is to grow natural. I've have natural have for 7 years now and it the best and healthiest thing I've done. My hair (which straighten is down to my lower chest) would have never been this long with a perm/relaxer.

      But even if you don't want to do that, have are some few things to do..

      First and foremost... you have to start from the inside out. You have to eat and drink healthy. Getting the right vitamins in your body and drinking plenty of water helps promote great skin, hair and nails.

      Second moisturize you hair with products such as deep conditioners, leave in treatments, grease, etc. etc.! This is very important that esp. since you have a relaxer in your hair. The stuff they put in relaxers/perms strips the natural oils in your hair making them dry and brittle. This leaves to more damage.

      Last, trims. You need to have those ends clips roughly every 6 weeks esp. if your hair is very damaged. By letting it just "grow out" without cutting it when needed will slow down your hair growth.

      Little things to do that help:
      Sleeping with a satin scarf at night
      Getting a relaxer/perm every 2-3 months
      Taking hair growth pills
      Massage(not scratching) your scalp every night for 30 minutes clockwise and counter-clockwise ( For some reason people only do this when they are washing their hair)
      Not playing in your hair all the time
      Wear less ponytails
      Don't put rubberbands in your hair

      Hope that helps

  16. QUESTION:
    Hair why dosent it grow long for black people?
    Why do white people's hair grow faster and grows down there backs and black people's hair dosen't grow past there shoulders. There are some black people that have hair down there backs but it is rare.

    • ANSWER:
      Because of evolution, African American's hair has always been more course and short to help heat escape their bodies, since most African Americans originated from Africa where it tends to be very hot. Caucasion people have had more of a fur-like hair to keep the warmth in their body, since they originated from northern european countries which have a cold climate. Your right when u say it's rare to see an African American with long hair..usually I find out that they're hair extensions. Just remember to use deep conditioners on your hair to ensure that your hair stays strong to prevent breakage. Good Luck!

  18. QUESTION:
    black girls grow their hair long?
    how do we stop our hair from breaking :) The texture of our hair is very different, very fragile and the strands are actually skinnier than other people's hair. Ive learned that black girls hair grow fast! But at the same time it breaks just as fast and thats why it wont stay long. Ive seen an african girl with hair past her butt and I just got really jealous. ALOT of native african girls have long hair but african american girls have short hair. I figure its because they actually know how to care for their hair because the shampoos they make are made JUST for that texture of hair and not a variety of people(white, asian) where people can get confused and put the wrong chemicals in. How do they make their hair strong enough where it wont break so easily. This will be a great help to me. Im having breakage problems. I wore weave to protect my hair and in one month it grew ONE inch! so I know my hair doesn't have a problem growing, it just breaks.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, the secret to growing long hair is protecting the ends and keeping your scalp stimulated/hydrated.

      You're right, black hair (typical, kinky-curly, thick) is different than straight, fine, or loosely curled hair, therefore it must be taken care of differently.

      You may know this, but washing your hair with a shampoo every day (or even multiple times a week) is a NO-NO for black hair. The reason people with straight or loosely curled hair often do this is because their sebum can easily move down their hair shaft moisturizing/hydrating their hair. This is why their hair gets "oily" and must be washed frequently. Because natural black hair is kinky-curly, the sebum is not able to travel down the hair shaft (quickly at least) in order to moisturize the hair. This leaves the hair dry instead of oily.

      This is why it's important for those with Afro hair to manually moisturize and keep harsh detergents (like SULFATES found in a lot of shampoos) to a minimum. It may be OK for you to "co-wash" (washing with conditioners) you hair every few days in order to keep it clean. Conditioners contain the same cleaning agents as shampoos; they only lack the harshness of sulfates. It may be OK to wash with a shampoo once a week (two if you're really trying to protect your hair and if you have no product buildup).

      Also remember to NEVER comb/de-tangle Afro hair while dry, this can cause serious breakage (or shortened hair!) De-tangling should be done while the hair is saturated with conditioner. Brushing (wet or dry) can cause damage, too.

      Not washing your hair everyday or three times a week is not "nasty". Remember: natural black hair is different, so it requires different treatment.

      To sum it up, you need to protect your hair with gentle cleansers and LOW MANIPULATION. Even if you don't have natural hair, constantly combing, brushing and styling relaxed black hair can cause damage. You said your hair grew an inch when you had it in the weave? That's called "protective styling". You can even braid or twist your own hair up to achieve protection for your hair. Ponytails/buns can be good too, but wearing them too much can cause breakage around the hair line and if your ponytail or hair is brushing up against your collar, this can dry out and break off hair.

      These are some of the things that have worked for a lot of people I know. Take whatever you can use.

    Why does black hair grow faster in dreadlocks?
    I tell you no lie it does! Everyone Ive know with dreads had short to medium longish hair before dreads but now they have long hair past the breastbone. Especially black females!
    Where do you see an answer? LMAO!

    • ANSWER:
      it doesn't grow faster, Black hair is more prone to breakage but when it's in Dreads it's very unlikely to break. Same with good cornrows other other preventive styles although if a black women frequently get her split ends and stuff clipped then she would have hair down to her back as well. The myth of Black people not being able to grow their hair is just that a myth.

  22. QUESTION:
    How are Hawaiian and hispanic women able to grow thier hair so long?
    DOES THEIR HAIR GROW FASTER THAN BLACK OR WHITE WOMEN? it seems like it does I work with many of them when they end up getting a new haircut and in a couple of months it's back down to their waist. I'm amazed how does it grow back that fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Everyone's hair basically grows the same...about .44mm per day and on average 6 inches per year.

      Even factoring in your age, genetics and hormones this is still going to be your basic average.

      Now...they do tend to use less coloring, straightening and perming solutions in their hair leading to less breakage and needing less trims.

      Their hair is also typically straight or slightly wavy so it may give the effect of growing longer than someone with very wavy or curly hair.

  23. QUESTION:
    does anybody no how to grow long hair fast!!! (for a black man)?
    i just got signed to a record label and im trying to do somthing different to my image

    • ANSWER:
      I have coarse hair that naturally grows, lol, so I'm not sure what the difference is.

      Despite what others will tell you, there isn't a way to make your hair grow faster. You'll just have to be patient. Average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month, 6 inches per year. Patience is what you need. Plus, if this deal goes through and you do come out with an album then it probably won't be for a couple of years. Good luck.

      BTW, I'd stay far away from grease. It does nothing but coat your hair and make your hair greasy. If your hair is natural then you don't need to put anything on your scalp. Those with relaxed hair have to grease or oil their scalp because relaxers dry out their hair and scalp.

      Focus on length retention, that means you need to keep your hair from breaking off and this is what's need to get your hair longer.

      moisturizing your hair is important since african american hair tends to be dry and eating a balanced healthy diet is key to growing your hair as well as drinking a lot of water, and deep condition your hair once a month you'll see a drastic change by following these few steps, and when you do start to see some growth trim the ends about 6-8 weeks.

  30. QUESTION:
    I'm a black female, what hair products can I use to help my hair grow FAST and healthy?
    I'm going to start taking really good care of my hair (I've been slacking). What products can I use to restore it back to health, help it grow longer, and keep the 'bounce' it has when I first wash it. How often should I use these products?

    • ANSWER:
      There aren't really any products that will make your hair grow fast but if you buy products that strengthen your hair then there will be less breakage. The reason that black women have such a hard time growing their hair is because a hair's weakest point is at the bend (think of when you bend something back and forth until it breaks), since your hair is curly it has many bends therefore more potential for breakage (this is why most Asians have such strong hair, it's poker straight.) Your hair needs protein, especially if you chemically relax it or color it...I love Frederic Fekkai protein Rx shampoo, conditioner and treatment.

      You should also make sure that when you wash your hair, you massage the scalp rigorously..this will stimulate blood flow to your scalp which can cause hair to grow slightly quicker. You can also massage your hair once a day, whether you shower or not...the more you do it the better. Keep in mind that the massaging action also stimulates the oil glands so if you over do it..you wind up with an oily scalp.

      As far as how often you should use the products, well...you should wash your hair at least 1 or 2 times per week and use a protein treatment at least every other week. I would try a polishing creme for styling, gel and hairspray contain a lot of alcohol that can dry out your hair.

  31. QUESTION:
    how does black hair grow?
    how does black hair grow faster? i know that it depends on genetics but it can happens to some other people so i just wanna know how it works.my hair is just above my shoulders and i want it a little bit down my back. i want it long so i can style it better:) no negative please and thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      if you notice that you have a lot of split ends, you need to get a trim.
      the reason for this is because the ends are breaking off and once new hair grows your ends break off so there isn't and length getting added. get it trimmed every 6 weeks. TRIMMED not cut.. lol vitamin C and D help hair growth also.

      if none of that works, then the reason may be because some peoples hair only grows to a certain length, even if they have really healthy hair. mine wont go past the middle of my arm and i have super healthy hair. it's just how bodies work.. : /

  34. QUESTION:
    How fast does it take to grow my hair out 4 inches?
    I am a guy and i have very very thick black hair.. it grows pretty fast i would say, above average for sure, i need haircuts very often, well i buzzed my hair completly off about 1 month ago and its already about 1 inch grown out, i want to get 4 inches, how long do you think it will take with my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows approximately 1/2 inch a month, and it also seems to grow faster right after you cut it. Your hair may not grow as fast as it did the first month, so I would say give it about 6 months, but it could take as long as 8.

  35. QUESTION:

      I would recommend using some natural hair vitamins. I tried shampoos, conditioners & even oils but they are just topical so they don't work. I use Alpha Renew Hair Vitamins now, they help my hair grow faster & longer, repair damage & improve texture too. I <3 it!

      On average hair grows a half an inch a month. So it should take around 6 months for your hair to be four inches long. It does grow slightly faster in warmer climates. Don't know why.

    • ANSWER:
      Well my hair dresser told me that if you cut your ends all completely even, then it will grow faster, doesn't matter on the thickness or color or anything.

  38. QUESTION:
    Do white people's hair grow faster than black people's hair?
    I'm starting to wonder. Like, if a white girl cuts her hair several inches, in about 3 months it seems you can't even tell.

    Yet, if a black girl cuts her hair, why does it seem to take all year for it to grow back?

    My beautician says that hair grows about 1/4 an inch a month, is this true and does this apply to white people's hair?

    Also, how can I grow my hair out? It's just past the bottom of my neck and I want it about five inches longer or more.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm white, and my hair grows EXTREMELY slowly. I think it depends on weird quirks in your genes, not your race.

      And to grow your hair out, just.. Don't not cut it, because if you let the ends split to heck, they'll start getting breakage. Have someone "trim" the ends every couple of months, and you'll have healthy growing hair.
      This being said, everyone's hair has a limit to how long it will grow. My friend has hair down to her waist, but my mom says hers has never grown past her ribcage. It just stops at a certain point, and if you cut it, it'll only go back to that point.

  41. QUESTION:
    How to grow out black hair dye/Allergic reactions?
    My natural hair color is brunette. I dyed it black about six months ago & I am absolutely sick of it. I tried Color Oops, all that did was make my scalp feel like it was burning & itching. I don't know if it was an allergic reaction or not. I've never had any allergic reactions from dying my hair in the past, but I'm gonna be safe and not bleach it like I was originally planning to, because I don't want any damage done to my scalp. So, I thought, maybe I should just grow it out. If I cut my hair short, about shoulder-length, will it grow out? & If so, what are ways to make my hair grow faster so the black will come out?! My hair is very long now, but I have no problem cutting it. I'll do whatever it takes to make it my natural color again :( Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      It will take about 1-2 years to grow out, when I dyed my hair it went to a dark brown when I just wanted it medium brown so I went out and bought a medium blonde dye, it didn't have any pre lightener in it so it managed to go to a medium brown. I don't know if this will work on you as black is a very hard colour to shift.

      Cutting your hair does not make your hair grow any faster, hair grows around 1/2 an inch per month, quicker in the summer and shorter in the winter.

      You say you would do whatever it takes to make it your natural color again, I would suggest going to the hairdressers and getting it done it should cost around £40 make sure they do a patch test 24 hours before it to make sure you aren't allergic . If you let your roots grow to 1/2 inch the hairdresser will be able to colour match your hair perfectly to your natural hair colour and that way you won't have unsightly roots showing for the next 1 to 2 years

  42. QUESTION:
    How can i make my hair grow Fast and help repair it?

Links? Ive herd Maine and tail is supposed to help the growth is this true? Thanks.

    • ANSWER:
      Damaged hair is tricky to fix. Hair is just dead protein, it can't heal itself. Usually, the best way to get rid of damage is to cut it off.
      But for an improvement, there are a couple things you can do to help and prevent it.

      1. Get a good hair cut - and get a couple of inches off this will get rid of any split ends etc. and helps prevent your situation from deteriorating. Make sure you have it trimmed regularly and your hair will then grow back nice and healthy.

      2. Use a wide tooth comb to comb your wet hair - start at the bottom and work your way up this will help prevent breakage. Remember that you should never brush (only wide tooth comb) your hair while wet or brush it too much or too hard, even while it's dry.

      3. Have a couple of deep conditioning treatments or do them at home! the best deep condition you can do at home is to warm a towel in the dryer. And while you are waiting for it to get nice and toasty, wash and condition your hair as you normally would, but don’t rinse the conditioner out. Wrap your wet, conditioned hair in the warm towel for at least an hour or so. Rinse afterwards and voila!

      4. Limit the amount of times you straighten, perm or dye your hair this only add to the damage. When or if you do any of these, make sure you have the correct hair treatments (such as heat protector spray if you straighten your hair)

      Hope this helped! =]

  45. QUESTION:
    Does white/biracial kid's hair grow faster than black kid's hair?
    I know this is going to sound like a stupid question, but hey that's what yahoo answers is for right? :) I have a daughter who will be 4 in October, a 2yo boy and a 4 month old daughter. The 3yo girl is biracial. I'm black and her total deadbeat runaway father is from South India so her hair is long with tight curls. It looks something like Tia and Tamara Mowry's hair did when they did the show "Sister Sister." When you stretch it out it stops right where her butt crack is. She has never had her hair cut soooo...my naive question of the day is does white/biracial hair grow faster than black kid's hair? Because you hardly ever see black kids with long hair by the time they reach her age. Is it because of the high rate of hair breakage or does it grow slower? Or does her hair grow extremely faster than most kids?

    • ANSWER:
      The average white person's hair grows about 1/2 inch per month.

      I saw on Oprah once (years ago when she was cool and did the makeover/who's my daddy/etc. shows!) that black people's hair grows just as fast as any other race's hair (Asian, Mexican, etc.). The reason it SEEMS like it's growing more slowly is because many black people put very heavy, greasy, thick, waxy oils/lotions/pomades on their scalp and in their hair, and it actually clogs the pores in the scalp and forces the hair to grow more slowly.

    • ANSWER:
      I bought a vitamin pill mixture designed to help hair grow you can do the same for about and just take 1 pill a day,

      also make sure you trim your hair at least once ever 3 months to ensure the ends dont break off and make your hair shorter.

      you should also try a special shampoo designed to help your hair grow better.

      there is also a gel you can put on the end of your hair to help reduce split ends.

      you can find all of these at your local store and the vitamin you can find at a health store like whole foods or a vitamin store or possibly a drug store like walgreens or cvs

      Nothing can make your hair grow faster, you just have to wait. For a male, I think facial hair growth would be fairly quick (a couple of days) if it was only shaved and not tweezed or waxed.
