  2. QUESTION:
    What grese grows african american hair fast and what can i do to keep it growing?
    my hair has been damaged for a long time most of my hair is uneven and some is very short in the back plz help me i want to grow my hair longer for my sinor year right now i got micros in my head. any suggestions or information due tell……….. Need Help Fast!!!

    • ANSWER:
      yes grease isnt good for your hair instead use the liquid oil like the african miricle hair oil or which ever hair oil u can find, they are usually right beside the grease and are absorbed better by our skin and hair. micros arent that great either if your hair is already damaged, lots of times micros causes some hair to break off like around the edges so be careful when taking them down, load it up with conditioner before doing it and it will make the braids slide out without pulling your hair out. also stop perming as often it makes good hair bad and bad hair worse. i dont perm my hair anymore but when i did i only did it every 3 months and used braids and hot combs when my roots got thick and my relaxed hair went past my shoulders and was thick and healthy. also i didnt use much heat i would flat iron once a week only and wrap or wear ponytails until the next week. i had cut my hair just below the ears last summer and havent permed it since then and cut off all the relaxed ends a few months back and my hair now is past my chin when straightened

  3. QUESTION:
    how to keep african american hair growing nice and soft?
    i am african american male and i have hair that is dry, i want to get braiads, but i need good hair to get it. so do you have any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      It’ll take a lot of experimenting with different products to find something that gives you results. First things first, if your hair is healthy then you’ll have an easier job retaining moisture. If it’s not healthy then you have to restore your moisture balance and this will make it easier to retain moisture.

      Also, it can be a lot of work keeping your hair healthy and moisturized. There are products that will give it softness, but retaining moisture isn’t easy at first. Buy a moisturizer and buy a natural oil like olive oil. Moisturize your hair and then rub the olive oil through your hair. This will seal in the moisturizer so your hair will stay moisturized longer. You might have to experiment with different moisturizers and/or oils. Oils can be found in the local grocery store’s cooking isle or at health food stores. You can also try curl activator. I used to use it last summer and it was great for my hair. Don’t get the liquid kind, but instead get in cream form. I used to use Hawaiian Silky. If you use a curl activator then you don’t need to seal with an oil because the activator does every thing for you. And, no, using activator will not give you a jheri curl, lol, but it can bring out natural curls.

      Also, buy a moisturizing deep conditioner. There are many to choose from. I use Neutrogena Triple Moisture Hair Recovery Mask and this is great giving my hair moisture. I’ve tried many others, but this is the only one that works well for my hair. I don’t know how long you plan on keep in your braids, but deep condition before you get braids and after you take them down. If you don’t wear braids regularly then you can deep condition at least once a week. Also, when you get braids go out and buy some conditioning caps (example: http://www.walgreens.com/beauty/product.jsp?CATID=100839&navAction=jump&navCount=2&id=prod1297275 ) and an empty spray bottle (they sell at beauty supply stores) and every night spray your braids with olive oil and put the conditioning cap over it and this will help the oil penetrate your strands – it also keeps your hair from becoming very dry. After a few weeks of doing this regularly you’ll notice a difference in your hair, such as it won’t easily get dry like it used to. Also, your braids will be moist from the oil when you take off the cap. And, when you deep condition do it at night so you can leave it in overnight and wash it out in the morning – use a conditioning cap for the process. Over time you’ll notice that your hair doesn’t get dry so easily and that it retains moisture better. Nothing will happen instantly or after one time, so make sure you do it regularly and consistently.

      Also, if your hair is damaged then buy a protein treatment. This gives your hair strength so it won’t break so easily. It also keeps up your hair’s elasticity. Nexxus Emergency and Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise are both protein treatments. Aphoge also sells them. You wouldn’t use this weekly, maybe bi-weekly or once a month. When ever you do a protein treatment make sure you follow it up with a good moisturizing deep conditioner.

      Unfortunately, there’s a lot of work in keeping hair healthy and strong. Make sure you wash and condition at least weekly, unless you’re wearing braids. I’m sure this is a lot to take in, but work on it little-by-little. I’d go buy the conditioning caps and maybe some curl activator and use that to moisturize my hair day and night, and at night cover my hair with the cap and see how that works after awhile. Or, at the very least, buy a cream curl activator. THey all don’t have the same generic jheri curl smell.

  4. QUESTION:
    Does do gro help on growing african american hair, PLEASE HELP!!!?
    I reallly need my hair to grow back i use to wear alot of bonding glue so, it start breking my hair off. Anyone knows used somthing to help hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey there my name is Jessica and I’m a professional hairstylist! My hair is a light white blonde and has been forever I have glued in my hair extensions for ever and the damage is very bad but it’s addictive! My husband is Jamaican and tells me that I need to quit it and that I have nice hair and it’s not that bad! But….I’m a white girl with baaad insecurity issues on my horrible thin hair and I will never let the extensions go I NEED them! I know it’s hard but let the glue go and clip extensions in or wig it for a bit! I will eventually do this! The do gro does help! Hair can be damaged from chemicals, breaks or dull scissors from a trim! The hair just breaks and breaks and then eventually you have an inch of hair! The first step is to trim the hair a TINY bit (since you are trying to GROW your hair!), then you can do the do grow in the hair the only thing it does is moisturize it and stops breakage. A trick of the trade -It says on the label sometimes to massage it into the scalp but it’s not a good idea! The hair shafts need to breath in order for hair to grow! Conditioners and oils block hair from growing and weighs the hair strands down! Massage the scalp with fingers or ask someone for a scalp massage here and there! Most people rub and massage their scalps it speeds natural hair growth by 30%!!! I know my inlaws use it they like it!
      Good luck kicking your glue habit! I am dreading the day I start my hair glue detox LOL! Ugh…
      Hope this helps<3

  7. QUESTION:
    tips for growing african american hair?
    hey.!
    ok so i am almost 17 years old and my hair is about shoulder length right now. by the time i’m 19 or 20 i would really like for it to be at boob length. do you have any tips on how i should go about growing my hair? any advice would be appreciated =]

    • ANSWER:
      deep condition your hair for at least 20 minutes at least once a week

      when detangling, start from the bottom up. comb through the last inch, then the last two inches, and so on.

      moisturize your hair daily or every other day

      cover your hair with a silk/satin head scarf while sleeping. cotton dries out –> breaks our hair

      don’t wear your hair down everyday. the friction of your ends on your clothes means faster split ends, more haircuts, less growth retention

      drink water

  8. QUESTION:
    Growing African-American hair long?
    I have relaxed African-American hair and my goal is to get it to mid back length (although I wouldn’t mind if it was a little bit shorter than that haha). It’s shoulder length now. I try to stretch my relaxer to at least 10 weeks. I wash it once a week and co-wash once a week (sometimes twice). After I wash and detangle my hair and it’s damp I put herbal esseences long term relationship split end protector on it and then either grapeseed oil or extra virgin olive oil on it. Then I air dry while it’s wrapped, in two braids, or just down. Here are the products I have at home:

    *herbal essences long term relationship split end protector (it’s also a leave it conditioner)

    *herbal essences none of your frizzness leave in conditioner

    *organic root stimulator moisturizing hair lotion

    *tresseme heat protector

    *herbal essences tousle me softly mouse (I don’t really use it)

    *garnier fructis sleek and shine anti-frizz serum

    *vo5 moisture milks conditioner (for co-washing)

    *extra virgin olive oil

    *grapeseed oil

    *unrefined expeller pressed virgin coconut oil

    Is this a pretty good start? And I only use heat on my hair once a month, if I use any at all. I hear alot about protective styling, but I need “cute” protective styles :p I’m tired of ponytails and buns and I don’t really like braids. So:
    (1) how do I go about growing my hair longer
    (2) am I taking good care of my hair?
    (3) how do you know your “hair type”?
    (4) what are some protective styles besides ponytails and buns?
    (5) are the things I’m using on my hair good choices?
    Sorry this was kinda long, thanks in advance! (:

    • ANSWER:
      Yup. Perfect regimen and good products. Just maintain your moisture/protein balance (read here: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/278612/the_fine_art_of_protein_and_moisture.html?cat=69 ) and you will be fine.
      For protective styles you can do buns, weaves, wigs, braids and, twists.
      1) You’re doing it!
      2) Yup
      3) You can’t if you are relaxed sorry :/ you can look back at old pictures but you probably don’t own any in which your mom hasn’t dry-combed the crap out of your hair and made it look nappy
      4) listed above
      5) Yeah. Great choices! Just watch out with the cones. They block moisture from entering my hair in the summer time but they are fine for me in the winter.

    Tips on growing african american hair to the middle of my back … help ?
    I’m an african american teenage girl, my hairs at my collar bone right now
    but i want to to be in the middle of my back/underneath my breast
    can anyone help ? p.s im taking hairfinity vitamins at the moment

    • ANSWER:
      -co-wash ur hair weekly
      -invest in a goo leave in conditioner
      -massage vitamin e oil in2 ur hair

      try not to use heat any more than 4 times a month and when u do use things such as curling irons, flat irons and blow driers, make sure u use a heat protectant (ie hair sheen, hair lotion etc)

      keep ur hair oiled from root to ends

      i would suggest doing natural styles (bantu knots, braid outs, twist outs, tightly curly method)
      which provide heatless curls, (check them out on youtube)

      -exercise daily
      -eath healthy
      -try the egg and mayo treatment weekly (mix raw eggs with mayonaisse and olive oil and vitamin e in a bowl & apply to hair, massage in scalp and on hair, let the mixture sit for about 30 mins, rinse out) sounds silly but eggs & mayo are high in protein, which is needed for healthy hair
      -divide ur weight in half, whatever that number is is how much water (in ounces) you need to drink daily

      hope this works

  13. QUESTION:
    What are good regimens for growing out african american hair?
    Also: Can you co-wash the hair every other day? ( Just conditon wash w/o the shampoo)
    CAn someone please answer my question and stop putting ignorant answers. UGH!

    • ANSWER:
      The key things with our type of hair is moisture. Our hair tends to be dry and it loves moisture and water. Always keep your hair moisturized by drinking water (48 to 64 ounces daily) and using a water based leave in conditioner.

      You can also use a glycerin spray on your hair, get an 8 ounce spray bottle and mix 2 ounces of vegetable glycerin and 6 ounces of water. Then before you spray this on your hair you can use jojoba oil throughout your hair (not when greasy) and spray the mixture over your hair. It will make the hair soft and glycerin draws moisture out of the air and uses it on your hair.

      Keep your ends healthy, you do not have to trim every 4 to 6 weeks. You should only trim when there is damage, some black women only trim twice a year. Limit the use of heat, chemicals, dyes etc. Our hair is one of the most fragile hair type but yet people dye it, relax it, and use heat as if it is strong and wonder why their hair is breaking. I haven’t used heat on my hair in 10 months…. I suggest wearing braids, weave, buns, phony ponytails etc. I wear braids now as I transition to natural hair, I hate them but it helped my natural hair grow in and it will be a year next month.

      Use a sulfate-free shampoo; sulfates are horrible on our hair and damages it to where it is left limp, dry, brittle, etc. Try JASON’s Naturals, Organix, or even Aubrey Organics. And for the co-washing question, you can actually wash every single day if you want to. Lots of black women wash every single day, forget that misconception that we should only do it once a week or once every two weeks.

      Always try Youtube for tips on our hair, there are plenty of black women who have videos over hair care whether it is natural or relaxed. If you are relaxed, try Shimahair21 (relaxed lady with butt length hair). If you are natural, try Kimmaytube (bra strap length natural hair), Longhairdontcare2011 (natural hair that goes down her back), or Nikkimae (just did the big chop last year, has a nice afro). And plenty of other black women.

      Don’t listen to the other two answerers, they really don’t know what they are talking about.

    wats the best shampoo for growing african american hair fast?

      To me shampoo is not the issue, the conditioner is what matters the most.

      I myself have hair that breaks very easily, so I buy products that contain panthenol, this helps stops the split ends that keep your hair from growing.

      Protein is another must have for me, it helps to thicken the hair strands.

      Some products you can try:

    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.

    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.

    I cut my locks five years ago, but i’m not seeing significant growth, just subtle spurts every now and then.
    What products would help, or what techniques should i follow?

      make sure you get your split ends cut off asap when you see them. deep conditioning your hair is critical. i recommend once a week. wrap your hair in a silk scarf at night or wear a silk bonnet every time youi go to sleep to prevent breakage.

    Why locks seem to grow african-american hair faster than any other style including braids what is it about the lock style itself that aid hair growth quickly?

    • ANSWER:
      How it grows Hair grows about a third to a half inch per month, in three stages–anagen (growth), catagen (resting) and tilogen (shedding). Dread-locks appear to grow longer and faster, but the growth cycle is not altered by the locking process. It “grows” long because the lock retains hair that would normally be shed.

      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.

  29. QUESTION:
    for african american hair, when growing a perm out do u have to cut off the permed hair?
    most say after a few months growing it out, cut off permed hair. couldn’t you just continue not getting a perm and it’ll still grow?

    • ANSWER:
      you don’t have to. i did, but only because the permed ends started hanging on limply in comparison to the new growth that was healthy and at stark contrast. so for aesthetic reasons you eventually should cut it off. but it’ll grow regardless. perms don’t stop your hair from growing, and neither does cutting it or not cutting it affect hair growth

  31. QUESTION:
    How do you grow african american hair quickly?
    A lot of my hair broke off and I want to grow my hair back to regular length before school (in about a month) PLEASE HELP! :/

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair broke up because they’ve been weakened from the use of chemicals. Even chemicals from the pool, can cause hair to get weaker, if they’re not rinsed well ASAP.

      You grow them, the same way caucasian & Asian hair – nothing is that quick!

      See link before for drinking too much water, it DOES NOT make your nails, or hair grow any faster, only makes you pee more.

      If you’ve straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.
      Google: “Foods for Healthy Hair” – 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.

  32. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to grow African American hair?
    My hair is really short…and right now i have extensions in…and i don’t know if that is the best way for my natural hair to grow…because my scalp can become really dry and very itchy…so what if the best way to grow my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want your hair to grow you’re going to need to wash and condition your hair weekly, in addition you need to find a good moisturizer to use on your hair and a natural oil (such as Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, or Sweet almond oil) to seal with. (If you don’t know what sealing is “Google Moisturize and Seal African American hair” and you’ll find a wealth of knowledge on it. You’re going to have to experiment with products to see which ones work the best for you. I suggest you use a protein conditioner and a moisturizing conditioner and alternate every week. Also you’re going to need a good moisturizing leave in conditioner. In addition you need to stay away from heating tools such as blow dryers, flat irons, etc, a safer way to style/straighten your hair is applying rollers to wet hair and sitting under a hooded dryer. Hooded dryers apply heat evenly through hair, whereas blow dryers apply shots of extreme heat that can dry and damage your hair. You can find a hooded dryer cheap for like at the hairstore. If you don’t know how to rollerset your hair, practice. The way I learned was rolling my hair dry and eventually I learned how to roll the hair wet. If your scalp is itchy, try to find a shampoo made for dry itchy scalp. I recommend getting a natural moisturizing shampoo with tea tree oil and peppermint. The tea tree oil and peppermint will soothe the scalp and prevent it from itching. This product won’t be hard to find. I find that most dandruff or dry itchy scalp shampoo’s come with tea tree oil and peppermint now.

  33. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my African American hair 3 more inches and how many months would that take?
    I am African American,my hair is healthy,& I just got a trim. What are some tips to grow my Hair?
    I am getting braids
    I am getting braids, and I was wondering if your able to wash braids

    • ANSWER:
      yes you can wash braids. Try Surge Plus 14, or S Curl or Carefree Gold, or a spray for braids, you can mix it with wildhairgrowth, castor oil (olive oil, tea tree, jojoba) and water. But keep it clean and moisturizer it daily. Some days only do cowash-conditioner.

      Braids is a good way to gain growth. Keep it mosit. Even bag it sometimes. Use moisturizers first then oil to seal in the mosit. You might get an inch a month with the braids, normally it is half inch.

    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!

    HELLLPPPPPP GROWING AFRICAN AMERICAN HAIR! (read info)?
    okay, i have extremely coarse hair which is textured right now.
    i have been using wave nouveau finishing lotion and wave nouveau daily humectant. i see no growth.
    im trying to grow my hair as long as it can go (under chest) and it seems to me that all its doing it breaking.
    my hair used to be almost at my shoulders right now my hair is a bit below my ears and im willing to do ANYTHING to speed growth and buy the best products

    ALSO i do hot oil treatments once a week (egg, olive oil, hair mayonaise) is there anymore effective ways?
    i take biotion and B50 complex but NOTHING.

    my question is what products can i buy that is healthy for hair and makes it grow very long or what natural methods? PLEASE ANSWER IM HOPELESSS.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi!
      One thing thats important to know is that everyone’s hair is always growing, no matter what type of hair you have. You may feel like your hair is not growing because it is breaking off and not RETAINING LENGTH (retaining length means keeping your hair on your head). Our hair (African American hair) can grow just as long as any other race, it’s just a matter of keeping the hair you grow on your head!

      You seem like you are doing a lot to your hair, maybe too much. In order to help you, I do need to know exactly what you are doing to your hair. Do you relax? Do you use protein? Do you moisturizer regularly? How often do you wash?
      Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy and prevent breakage:
      *remember water = moisture. Water is your friend!
      *moisturize with a water based product
      *seal in your moisture with an oil (olive oil, jojoba oil, castor oil are all great)
      *wash regularly (use a sulfate free shampoo, sulfates are what make your hair feel dry and break off. Check the ingredients)
      *take care of your ends. They are the oldest and most
      Fragile part of your hair. Moisturize them well.
      *if you relax be careful! Relaxing is not natural for the hair

      There are many more tips I can give you, and I am happy to help. I have a blog about African American hair Where you can ask me questions

  38. 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!!

    What To Use To Make African American Hair Grow?
    What specific products would one use to make African American’s person’s hair grow hair to mid back? No perms, or any chemicals. Please help me.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I take about 100mg of Biotin and vitamin B supplements along with moisturizing my hair daily with a water based moisturizer .

      Wash your hair once a week with a Moisturizing shampoo such as Nexxus Therappe or Creme of Nature .
      Condition afterwards with a Moisturizing conditioner such as Nexxus Humectress ,Oyin Honey Hemp,Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle .
      Apply a leave in and let Airdry ,Heat can seriosly damage your hair so if u can ,AVOID IT!
      Massage your scalp with a natural oil such as Carols Daughter Lisa s Elixir or Wild Growth Oil .

      MOISTURE IS THE KEY !

      AVOID:
      Mineral oil and petroleum-based products can really be counterproductive to that goal. These types of products work well at either sealing moisture in or keeping moisture out. Problem is, the porosity of AA hair make it difficult for the cortex (the hair’s inner core) to retain moisture in the first place. So if your hair doesn’t hold moisture, there is nothing to seal in. And if you’re using mineral oil or petroleum-based products you’ve now created a water-resistant barrier that will keep moisture from getting in. And since AA hair is inherently dry, you’re only compounding your problems with having dry hair. Again, if you’ve got issues retaining moisture to begin with, best to steer clear of these types of products.

      And if you must use oils, opt for essential oils and butters. They’re permeable, meaning they mix well with water and allow your hair to breath.

I want to proove that black hair can grow . PLEAASSEE HELLP ME !

    • ANSWER:
      Umm.. I guess you could try using less heat on your hair. After washing your hair let it dry just a little (your hair should still be damp) put some olive oil products on your ends. When your hair gets dry use a hair lotion or leave in conditioner. Condition your hair at least once a week. Deep condition once a month. Wrap your hair before you got to sleep with a silk rag. Clip your ends once every 6-8 weeks

      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. I like Caribbean Hair Grow. Talk to your doctor before you take anything.

  44. QUESTION:
    Do grease’s work to grow African American hair?
    Theres a grease called Kids Organics GRO STRONG Triple Action and i was kinda wondering if i used it, would my hair even grow an inch, but ive heard from people grease can worsten your hair and doesnt make it grow! But since theres olive oil in it can my hair still grow? Im also wondering what other things can help stimulate african american hair growth?!?

    • ANSWER:
      That product isn’t hair grease at all! Just looked it up. It’s filled with good ingredients. The only not so good thing it contains is lanolin. In order to be “grease” the product must contain petroleum or mineral oil. But, I will tell you this. The only ingredient in that product that makes hair *grow* is black pepper.. you can make this. Just gather the oils of your choice and add in some black pepper. Well you’ll have to infuse it.. google the process of infusing. I actually make my own hair growth oil. It’s just cayenne pepper mixed with castor oil.

      But, yeah. This product isn’t worth ! Not at all! It doesn’t contain olive oil though. All it is really is soybean oil, coconut oil, corn & vegetable oil (which don’t do anything for your hair btw), some thickeners, fragrance, preservatives, and a ‘cone (‘cones make your hair *seem* softer when it’s really not. It coats the hair shaft and gives it a smooth feel)

      I’d just go get me some soybean oil, coconut oil, and pepper. It’s the same thing. The product is just thicker and smells better.

      I had a whole rant about not using hair grease going and then I looked up the ingredients tehe. But, here’s a video on grease to answer your questions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xV1hXZUlPQ&feature=channel_video_title

    How to make my african-american hair grow?
    My hair will never grow when i looked at pictures when i was younger it was so long. I wish it would grow. I have african american hair that wont grow worth anything. Someone help me out. I mean i know it takes time, but is there anything i can do?

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

      I finally started wearing a weave. My hair grew while it was ‘resting’ in braids and I had the desired length I wanted. My hair has now tripled in length and is healthy and long. I still wear the weave for its easy maintenance and variety, but THANK GOD I now have hair! You can always “weave it to achieve it!”

    growing African American hair??

    • ANSWER:
      Olive Oil! massage it into ur hair at least half an hour before taking a bath and it will grow like weed, my hair grows 3 inchs a month cuz of that but also eat protein (i drink 2 box thing’s of milk, my breakfast is the egg whites, and for lunch and dinner = chicken!) also get a trim!

  47. QUESTION:
    Growing african-american hair?
    I actually am thankful for the hair I have, it’s really healthy, thick, and nice. I haven’t used weaves ever since i got my perm when I turned 10, i’m 13 now. The thing is, my hair has always been above my shoulders in like a little bob, same old.
    I’ve only seen my hair in medium length, black bobbed, hair. I’ve tried tons of styles but it’s just not working, and I went on this website and it showed what types of hairstyles go perfectly with face shapes. My face shape goes perfectly with long wavy hair. My hair is already wavy… just not long :(
    Any tips for my hair to grow longer and stay healthy? Or anything to boost my confidence about my hair – cuz i just dont feel it right now.

    P.S. I’m also a cheerleader, most girls in my squad have long hair that they can put in a ponytail and just swing it everywere. Mine on the other hand, is like a little shrub thingy that cant swing, so i get super jealous…

    • ANSWER:
      I love that it’s “African-American” hair! Do you not imagine that other people have that kind of hair around the world!! lol

      I’ve never been able to do much with mine either. It just is. Loads of people love it – it’s kind of tight corkscrew curls to just below my shoulders. It never grows any longer. Actually, when I straighten if (which takes 2 hours) it is really long. My daughter’s hair is much nicer – looser curls that swing and bounce nicely. My eldest’s hair is blonde and dead straight!!!

Grow Your Hair Out

Growing out a short hair style can be one of the most frustrating and confidence zapping processes a girl can go through, I once heard that 70% of a girl’s confidence comes from her hair. Thus growing out a short hair cut over a period of a year can mean 365 bad hair days. As a hair guru this is one of the most common problems I face and I have to admit I have gone through this process myself, having gone from having a funky short hair cut that everyone loved, to looking like a prison escapee as the months of growing out progressed.

So what follows is my best advice for short hair styles especially when you are growing out your hair;

1. Cut A Little As Often As You Can

I know the point of growing your hair is not to cut it, but believe me it’s wise to take a little longer growing that hair out and allow your hairdresser help you by regularly tidying it up and keeping it in a reasonable style as you grow your hair out. Find a hairdresser that you trust and who knows your main aim is to grow your hair out. Remember short hair cuts come in various lengths with a help of a professional you can look like a star at every stage.

2. Keep It Layered

My best tip for looking like you have hair style rather than like your in transition is to not to grow your hair into one length from short to long. Not only will it be more frustrating for you, but you will end up looking like you are wearing a wig that has been run over, as the layers start to stick out and grow in different directions. So until your hair gets to about mid neck keep it layered and then you can start the process of growing it into one length.

3. Go For Shine

Short hair can often look a little dull especially if you have black hair, and because you are not cutting it as often it can get frizzy adding to your growing out woes. Aim to always keep your hair looking shiny and healthy, invest in the best shampoo and conditioner you can afford, and take my advice invest in a good hair shining serum.

4. Accessorize

One of the best ways to disguise a bad hair day, and you will have many when you are growing out your hair is to accessorize. Thankfully headbands are all the rage at the moment. Resist the temptation to just push your hair back with a headband, blow dry the front of your hair into a fringe and put a wide headband behind your fringe to control the rest of your hair. A skinny headband worn with a fringe can also be a great look for work.

Split bobby pins like the one in the Scunci’s range are fantastic as they are long enough to hold a lot of hair yet come in a funky finish, do a side part and hold the hair with one split bobby pin, this also works well for the pompadour look, pull back the middle of your hair and a form a bit of quiff and hold firm with a no slip grip clip. Make sure you smooth the side of your hair with a shine serum for classic yet stylish look.

5. Skip The Mini Pony Tails

I realize that sometimes being able to pull a your growing hair back and put it into a tiny pony tail can be tempting, but that look is for sweaty tennis players, not fashionista’s who can handle every style situation. If you want to sweep all your hair back into a clean style do it with bobby pins, however invest in the best quality bobby pins that will stay in your hair all day as it will be a nightmare having to readjust your hair style.

Growing out a short hair cut can actually be exciting as you virtually get to have a different style every week, however it’s a commitment so make it firmly and stay away from hairdressers when you are having a bad day. Follow my tips and enlist the help of a good hairdresser, hair products and accessories and most importantly have fun.

    My hair is partically long. I just want to know if there are any techniques on growing your hair out at all. Does massaging your scalp work at all? I just want tips and techniques that work.

    • ANSWER:
      Nutrients always makes hair grow faster, it is exemplified in pregnant women when they take prenatal pills (pills that have a load of vitamin supplements), their hair grows faster, longer, and shinier. So start taking vitamins and eating those veggies!
      Also washing your hair with the correct shampoo and conditioner protects from breakage, Pantene Beautiful Lengths is a really good set. Make sure you use less shampoo than conditioner so you don’t dry out your hair.
      Always always always protect your hair from heat damage,I suggest Tresemme’s heat tamer protective spray. It keeps your ends from spliting, and prevents breakage.
      If you keep your hair healthy there will be fewer reasons to trim it, and before you know it it will be longer. =)

      girl, i have studied this for a long time, because i wanted my hair to grow out before school too! ha ha,but theres a few things you can do to help it be healthier to cause it to be able to grow.
      First option would be to take those pills that produce hair growth.

      your scalp b/c thats going to help the roots if you just put it on
      the ends, it not going to do anything to it. You can find it at
      walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water
      to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should
      use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it.
      Even hot water hurts your hair.

  22. QUESTION:
    Do you have to grow your hair out before waxing?
    I want to try a bikini wax, how long do you need to grow the hair out before waxing? Is there any irritation after? Shaving gives me horrible razor burn, I have extremely sensitive skin. Any tips?

    • ANSWER:
      The hair needs to be at LEAST 1/4 inch, but 1/2 of an inch is ideal,
      That way you’ll get better results.
      You’ll probably be red in the area waxed afterwards, and your hair follicles might look a little swollen, but it goes away soon enough.
      Nothing a cold cloth can’t help soothe.
      If you have extremely sensitive skin, even call the spa ahead of time,
      Let them know about your skin, and see if they’ve got a certain kind of wax for sensitive skin.
      And yeah .. waxing does hurt, especially at first.
      But it’s well worth it, and the more you do it, the less it hurts, and the more your skin will get used to it.
      Hope that helped!

    What products are out there to help grow your hair?
    I have really bad hair, I keep it braided 90% of the time because it is extremely thin. My hair grows then falls out again all the time and I am tired of braids, but when I cut and style it a month or two later it is falling out. What should I do to keep my hair growing and strong? PLEASE HELP ME!

    • ANSWER:
      The braids are thinning your hair. Sadly most stylist are not going to tell you that because they want your money. 1st stop wearing the braids. 2nd after washing your hair combine 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of mayonaise or purchase the egg and mayonaise deep treatment and put in your hair like shampoo and sit under a hot dryer or heating cap. The eggs and mayonaise restores hair protein and will strengthen your hair. If possible do this every 2 weeks and wear your hair natural and loose until it is strong again. If you cannot wear it natural then it is better to have your hair pressed with a hot comb than to have a relaxer or any kind of chemicals until it is strengthen.

      Use pure Olive or Carrot Oil Sheen to moisturize your hair.

  29. QUESTION:
    Hoe long does it take to grow your hair out?
    I want to grow my hair out. But it seems like my hair hasn’t been growing at all. I’ve been growing it for a couple of months now and i dont even see the slightest bit of change.

    • ANSWER:
      Approximately 1/2 inch per month, which equals 1 inch every two months, which equals 6 inches per year. Give or take a little bit. If your hair is already long then you won’t easily see 1/2 inch per month. In this case, I suggest you get a ruler and you measure your hair and remeasure it a month later. That’s how you can tell the growth. It’s easier to see the actual growth on shorter hair.

      Also, make sure your hair isn’t breaking off. If it is then it’ll take longer to grow. Hair breaks at the ends, but it’s always growing from the scalp no matter what. Breakage is the number one reason why hair doesn’t get longer or it takes forever to get longer – it has nothing to do with how fast its growing from the scalp.

      I went from about 1/2 inch of hair to hair that was to my collarbone in about 15 months.

    If you’re trying to grow your hair out, how often should you get it cut?
    I’ve been trying to grow my hair out for a couple months now and I can’t figure out if my hairdresser just doesn’t get it or if my hair really takes a long time to grow out. I get my hair trimmed every five weeks. Is that too often? I’d really appreciate any tips.

    • ANSWER:
      that is a little too often unless you get split ends that often. i wait about a month and a half to 2 months because i dont get split ends very quickly. you should just base it on your hair. wait until you see split ends and youll know how often you should get it trimmed. but you should continue to get it trimmed pretty often if youre trying to grow it out because if you get split ends, say, when your hair is shoulder length and you dont get it trimmed and you grow your hair out to be, say, waist length, when you cut it, unless you want split ends, you have to cut it to shoulder length where your hair started to split. so keep trimming you hair. i applaud you for that

      Good luck!

      there isnt alot you can do its all about your hair. Some of the few things that work the best are to get a trim every month.

Getting good scalp care is really important to to brush your hair alot expecially right at the scalp helps promote more blood flow and you will see a noticeable diffrence.
      The shampoo really isnt as important depends on what your wanting out of the ends of your hair. volume you should use a shampoo for volume or anti frizz ect… nioxin helps for hair that feels like its getting thinner it doesnt help it grow back but it keeps it from falling out! When you go to get trims every month have them give you a shampoo to help with the attention to the scalp… it will also help if you spend more time scrubbing in the shower to.

    My hair is short and curly, I would love to let it grow, but it takes so long that I get frustrated and end up cutting it again, I would like to grow it into a short bob at least. Any suggestions on how, or what is the best shampoo and conditioner to use or home remedies, etc. Thank you!

    • ANSWER:

      all you can do is keep your hair healthy with regular trims, no harsh chemicals and regular treatments.

  43. QUESTION:
    Why don’t bangs grow as long as the back of your hair when you grow your hair out? Anything to help it?
    I’ve been growing my hair out for about a year now. It’s about 10 inches in the back and 8 or so in the front. Why don’t my bangs grow just as fast as the back? Is it breaking off or is it just slow to grow? Anything I can do to help make the bangs grow just as fast as the back without damaging my hair? A friend suggested hot oil treatments. Any value in this?

    • ANSWER:
      Hmmm…It’s kind of like the little baby fine hairs at the nape of the neck. They are always sprouting up with new ones. Some people have more than others.

  44. QUESTION:
    How do you grow your hair out of a relaxer?
    I have a relaxer but I no longer want it and I would like my hair to grow, but I don’t want to cut all the relaxed hair off.

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, first off…a chemical relaxer alters the actual chemical makeup of your hair strands. So matter WHAT anyone tell you it cannot be removed and either has to grow out or be cut out. The Mineral Indulgence Shea and Cocoa Butter Hair cream is all natural and is really good for growing hair especially if you’re transitioning. This should also help condition your ends to avoid splitting and breakage. It doesn’t contain mineral oil and petroleum like oils in stores so it’s a better option. Massage it on your scalp and condition your ends with it to retain length. Hair grows about 1/2 and inch every month so if you cut about 1/4 of an inch of relaxed hair off every month, you should be able to retain length as well as transition nicely without having to cut all of the relaxed hair off.

      Good luck!

    and when i do, i put heat protecton
    on it.
    i been taking vitamins also.

    any suggestions to keep it healthy and
    make itt groooooow.

    • ANSWER:
      You have to take Healthy foods as follows

      1. Salmon: this high-quality protein source is filled with essential omega-3 fatty acids & Vitamin B-12 and iron. Fatty acids are needed to support scalp health. A deficiency here can result in a dry scalp, leading to dry hair, giving it a dull look. When it comes to foods that pack a beauty punch, it’s hard to beat salmon. If you are vegetarian, try one or two tablespoons of ground flaxseed, included in your daily diet, for some plant-based omega-3 fats.

      2. Spinach, broccoli and Swiss chard are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, which your body needs to produce sebum. This oily substance, secreted by your hair follicles, is the body’s natural hair conditioner. Dark green vegetables also provide iron and calcium.

      3. Beans & pulses are really good for your hair, as are legumes & with kidney beans and lentils, should be an important part of your hair-care diet. Not just providing plentiful protein to promote hair growth but ample iron, zinc, and biotin. While rare, biotin deficiencies can result in brittle hair. A recommended quantity of lentils etc is three or more cups of lentils or beans each week.

      4. Nuts, in particular Brazil nuts are one of nature’s best sources of selenium, an important mineral for the health of your scalp. Walnuts contain alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that may help condition your hair & are also a great source of zinc as are pecans, almonds & cashew nuts. A zinc deficiency can lead to hair shedding; just ensure nuts are a regular feature on your healthy hair program.

      5. Make sure poultry appears in your program, chickens and turkeys provide high-quality protein, which will help improve the health of your hair. Without adequate protein or with low-quality protein, weak or brittle hair may be experienced whilst major deficiencies in protein may lead to loss of hair color. Poultry also provides iron, which has a high degree of bioavailability, which means your body should easily gain benefits.

      6. Eggs: When it comes to healthy hair, it doesn’t matter how you like your eggs, fried, boiled, scrambled or over easy. Whichever way they’re served up, eggs are one of the best sources of protein around. In addition, they also contain vitamin B-12 & biotin, important beauty nutrients.

      7. Get your teeth into hearty whole grains, including whole-wheat bread and fortified whole-grain breakfast cereals. Containing zinc, iron, and B vitamins for a hair-healthy program. A whole-grain snack makes a great filler when your energy levels are waning mid-afternoon, with an absolute age to go before dinner.

      8. Oysters: better known for their reputation as an aphrodisiac, but they can certainly assist in promoting healthy hair, providing zinc, a powerful antioxidant. An acquired taste & pretty expensive I think, so if you are not ready for this just yet, an ample substitute yielding zinc, is readily available in beef or lamb, in addition to the whole grains & nuts already being consumed.

      9. An important mineral for hair growth is calcium, readily available in low-fat dairy products like skimmed milk and yogurt, also containing whey & casein 2 other high quality protein sources. A pot of Yogurt or cottage cheese make great mini snacks; take one to work & try stirring in a couple of teaspoons of ground flaxseed or walnuts to further boost your omega-3 fatty acids and zinc intake to your healthy hair program.

      10. To help promote a healthy scalp, carrots, containing vitamin A will also help to improve your vision so that you will take even more pleasure when you see the end results of your healthy hair program. Take a couple of carrots to work, eat them as a fill in snack, and use them grated or shredded on a salad. Remember, from a healthy scalp you will see a well-conditioned, shiny head of hair.

    Is there any possible way to grow your hair out any faster?
    I got a bad haircut and I really need to grow it out. Any suggestions to speed up the process?

    • ANSWER:
      Nope. Just wait it out.

  48. QUESTION:
    How to grow your hair out really long?
    I have like hair down to my shoulders and I want it to grow down to like my mid back how would I get to grow down that far?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month. Warmer months more, cooler less. Age – younger grows faster, older slower. Take into account genetics, hormones, stress, diet, medication, damage to hair. Use good products not Pantene, Herbal Essence & Garnier they are silicone products. They make you hair nice at first but as the silicone builds up it locks out moisture your hair weakens & breaks. Use pro products they last longer because you use less so the extra expense is worth it. The shampoos don’t contain a detergent lathering agent so it’s weird at first because you are used to lather. Great specialty products are, Joico K-Pak Reconstructor also Silk Results, Rusk has New Pro Elements Keratin. Big Sexy has good general products. Take Biotin & Vitamin E check it out on WebMD & Google.

  49. QUESTION:
    Is there any way out there to grow your hair longer faster?
    I loved short hair until I got it cut on me… NOW I HATE IT! Please is there any way to get your hair to grow faster instead of using extensions? If not can you send me some pic’s of good medium cuts so I can get my hair dresser to fix my hair! ;) Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      When i went to cosmetology school they told us that massaging the scalp will increase blood flow and help the hair grow faster. I usually do it daily when i shampoo and then again when i condition. if i’m just sitting there watching tv, i do it too.
      the same with your nails. if you massage your cuticle area with some vitamin e oil, it increases blood flow and causes your nails to grow faster.

  50. QUESTION:
    How do you grow your hair out fast?
    I’m not talking like a week fast, maybe a year or half a year fast. My hair is naturally curly, but I still have a perm kind of so yeah. Its kind of curly but its still straight. My mom said i could get my hair layered when it grows out(I got it cut last year)and now I can’t wait…also what hair cuts would you guys suggest?

    • ANSWER:
      My hair is tailbone length and very healthy. It took three years to get to this length after having been cut to my chin. I am very careful about what I put in my hair, how I comb it, and what I eat. Taking a daily multi-vitamin is very beneficial (oddly enough, pre-natal vitamins seem to work the best) . Trim only when nessesary and only as much as is needed. I trim every three months, but I cut off less than an inch each time. (On average, your hair will grow about 6 inches per year, but genetics and nutrition can alter that.) Be careful about what you put in your hair as far as products are concerned. I stopped using commercial shampoos and conditioners more than a year ago and my hair is the healthiest and most beautiful it’s ever been. I make my own conditioning treatments from natural oils and I clean my hair and scalp with a homemade sugar-scrub that leaves all the GOOD oils in while removing the dirt. There are several websites dedicated to natural haircare and most have recipes for cleansers and conditioners. Look into it!


Grow Your Hair With Weave

As much as we would all love to be able to do whatever we want with our natural hair with no repercussions, this is simply not the case. For many of us, our hair breaks too easily, is damaged, or simply won’t grow!

Fortunately, there is an incredible alternative to experimenting on your natural hair or waiting for it to growa”get a sew in weave! Most of us are already quite experienced with the use of weaves as opposed to just natural hair, but here’s a nifty guide to reasons why sew in weaves, if done and worn properly, can be vital to hair growth:

It’s healthy! It would be wonderful if we could treat our hair however we wanted, experimenting with different colors and styles and have it always bounce back to perfect health, but we do not live in a perfect world. To ensure that your natural locks stay healthy, hair weaving is your best bet. This way you can try as many different styles as you want until you find the perfect one without permanently damaging your lovely natural hair. If you want to try a crazy color or chemically alter your hair, always use extensions.

There is so much versatility with a sew in weave. The good thing about a sew in weave is that you can try whatever you want, as long as your budget allows it. Hair extensions and hair weaving techniques allow for virtually any color, any length, any texture, and any style you could possibly imagine. Depending upon how much you want to pay and how long you want it to last, you can choose between many different qualities of hair, including synthetic, human, or remy hair. Once you have your sew in weave completed, you can style them however you want without doing damage to your natural hair.

Growing out a bad cut is made much easier with a weave. I know this first hand! Come on, ladies (and gentlemen), we’ve all had that bad experiencea”a cut too short? Too choppy? The good news about hair is that it will fix itself, given enough time. But what to do during the wait? Weaves, or braids offer temporary relief while your hair recovers from the damage done, even if you prefer to keep your hair natural.

You can try out a short cut before you actually cut your hair. When weaves first came out, they were only used to make the hair longer. Now, you can use hair weaving to try out a short haircut to save yourself time and money! Plus, you get to keep you length.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Do weave caps help your hair grow?
    I don’t have short hair. It’s about 1 – 2 inches past my shoulders, but with my hair it seems to grown A LOT better when I don’t mess with it, like keeping it wrapped. I don’t really like keeping it in braids because I like having my hair out. I love having long hair, so will weave caps help it grow quicker?

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t know if a weave cap would help your hair grow, but I do know that if you go to a health food store and buy silica by cellfood, it will work pretty well. And ask if they have ultra hair also by natures plus and if you take it together, it will be extremely good for your hair and will help it grow.

      I work at a health food store and that’s what I recommend to customers all the time.

      (by the way, the products are all natural so they shouldn’t interfere with any other medication)

  2. QUESTION:
    Do weave tracks make your hair grow?
    My hair is very thick and the back of my hair is almost down to the end of my neck, but the sides of my hair are very short and don’t even reach my neck. So i put a few tracks, with not much glue, in it only on the sides to make it look a little longer. Will this make my hair fall out or grow.

    • ANSWER:
      YESSS .
      It Will make it grow.

  3. QUESTION:
    do braids with your own hair make your hair grow?(without weave.)?
    My hair has been breaking off, and I wanted to know if I got my hair braided without weave would it grow back? And,just keep it braided for a while.

    • ANSWER:
      Now If You Braid Your Own Hair And It’s Too Tight Then It Could Break Off. But If You Braid You Own Hair And It’s Where When You Laugh It Doesn’t Hurt. Then Yes You Can Grow Your Hair Back. I Had The Same Problems. But It Was From To Many Perms. My Grandma Use To Braid My Hair Every 2 Weeks And I Would Keep Them In 4 A While.

  4. QUESTION:
    Can sew in weaves help grow your hair?
    I get tracks glued in my hair every two weeks. My hair started off with a little body but still very thin with a decent length. Now it’s super thin and very chopped up (damaged). Wearing my hair natural is not an option because it is so damaged. I’m thinking of sewing tracks in my hair and washing and maintaining it every two weeks, leaving the tracks in from 6-8 weeks at a time. If I do this will it help my hair grow?
    My hair is also very soft.

    • ANSWER:
      This will help you out SOME for you wont be putting daily heat and stress on it… But what you NEED to do is cut the damage hair OFF so that your hair has a chance to start over without all of the damage hair…. Did you know it is a known fact that if you have damaged hair that is NOT cut off and treated it will only SPLIT up to the ROOT of your hair… Now who wants SPLIT HAIRS all the way up to the root…

      So cut off the damage hair start Fresh…. get you a really good deep conditioner for damaged hair… If you can find the completete system which includes the shampoo conditioner and leave in conditioner, it may cost a pretty penny but that is your BEST bet…. Make sure you use the system EVERY TIME you treat your hair…..

      Sewing in tracks is alot better on your hair than GLUE for the glue does nothing but breaks and rips off the hair… which in turns leaves you with a head full of damage hair… So once you have treated your hair have some tracks sewn in and you should start to see your hair grow and it will be HEALTHY

      DONT forget to get your ENDS cut on a regular basis as well for this will also help your hair to grow… A good Reconstruction System (Dr.Miracles has a GREAT ONE) is what you can ask for at the Beauty Supply Store… get your ends cut regularly and LEAVE the .GLUE alone and you should be fine… If you need any other advice I do hair and I would be more than happy to help just email me and I can recommend some things to you for a better head of hair and I mean HEALTHY HAIR

      Get your hair braided. See if your mother can find someone around the way that can braid hair for cheap. Once you get your hair braided it can last for about 2-3 months. You should see growth by time you take out your braids. Then get your hair braided again. This is what I do for some of my clients who wants to grow out their hair. After about a year trust me you would have some good growth.

  12. QUESTION:
    can your hair grow when you have hair weaving with bonding glue how can you take care of it?

    • ANSWER:
      no because when you use the bonding glue it clogs your pores so there is no breathing room. To take care of it you need to not get your hair wet. You can’t use oil because then your tracks will come out.You should not ond the hair on top of your hair neither because that is going to come out no matter what product you use. The best option is a sew-in. That is what i do to all of my hair customers.I don’t work with bonding glue period!

  14. QUESTION:
    hair weaves and growing your hair.?
    I started putting tracks in my hair for fullness about a month ago. My hair is long but because of the braids, all of my hair broke off. Now im glueing the tracks in and I wanted to know will my hair still grow. I dont leave the tracks glued in for long, maybe 3 or 4 weeks and then i take it out and wash my hair and re glue the tracks. The tracks are taken out professionally and they are usually really loose so they actually slip right off. Can i grow my hair back this way? also can i apply rogaine with the weave in my hair? please help

    • ANSWER:
      You might want to start doing sew-ins because they’re healthier for your hair than tracks. Glue-ins will cause some amount of breakage because you’re putting glue in your hair.

      You don’t say what kind of weave was being installed before the glue-in. If you were doing sew-ins then you need to make sure the braids aren’t tight. It’s the tight braids that break off your hair and recede your hairline, not the actual braids, but from the braids being too tight – this can happen with any tight hairstyle that pulls at the scalp, including ponytails. If they’re not tight and you take care of them then you’ll retain length.

      As far as if it’ll help your hair grow, I’ll say this: if with the weave in your hair you’re still combing, brushing, styling, and/or using heat on your real hair then the glue-in isn’t helping with length retention, because you’re still doing things to your hair that can break it off and damage it. With weaves like sew-ins or even wigs/half wigs you’re not touching you’re real hair, so you’re giving it a rest from the daily damage you do to it. with sew-ins you’re damaging the weave and not your real hair, and that’s how it grows longer – when it’s no longer being damaged. If you’re still manipulating your real hair with the glue-in then it’s most likely not helping.

    • ANSWER:

  17. QUESTION:
    Do sew in weaves make your hair grow even with a perm?

    • ANSWER:
      I can give you the best tips to keep your hair healthy while wearing a weave but your answer will most likely be trial and error. There is no yes or no answer some claim their hair grows while other says their hair breaks off, everyone is different, so the answer to that depends on an individual and application basis.
      I am not sure if you mean perm or relaxer, in the black community, a relaxer is called a perm. Which is just a cultural thing but originally A relaxer straightens your hair while a perm curls your hair, although the chemical for both process is the same with a small difference.
      This is what i recommend before you get a sewn in hair weave: I recommend that if you put any chemicals on your hair (perm, relaxer, or color) to wait at least 2 or more weeks before braiding it. The reason for this that after you hair goes threw a chemical process it is very vulnerable to breakage because of the trauma and that is when your hair is at its weakest. (Just like if a person had a baby they would have to wait a certain time before they did the activities they done before pregnancy due to trauma and adjusting and also because that is when you are at your weakest etc. )

      Make sure your hair is healthy and clipped on the ends before you braid your hair and that is before putting any chemicals on it and after you put any chemicals on it. (Your hair may be healthier and stronger if you bread it without relaxing it at all. Because a relaxer may cause your hair to be weaker around the edges of your hair since it is the thinnest and cause breakage.) If you choose to braid natural hair and have coiled or curly hair, i recommend your hair is moisturized (with a product free of petrolatum, mineral oil, and paraffin– you can find these at your local beauty store) and blown out straight before braiding to make the braiding process easier. It is also wise not to put alot of products on hair, especially on the scalp since it may suffocate the scalp and cause it to grow slower if not at all. If you have naturally straight hair, i suggest that you make sure your hair is not too naturally greasy.

      You may also want to wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo if you have chemically treated, curly or coiled hair, or a clarifying shampoo if you have naturally straight hair and all types of hair may need to deep condition your hair or have a scalp treatment performed professionally 3 days before you braid your hair, to ensure you hair is strong, healthy and moisturized.

      Your hair needs to be braided tight, but not too tight to the point it hurts too much or your eyes start to slant upwards. If it is too loose, your weave will not last as long as it could, or may look sloppy once weaved in, or if it is too tight, it will cause hair breakage or permanent Alopecia, and extra tightening of the scalp which is not good for hair growth or a healthy scalp.

      Once your weave is taken out, your natural hair will need to be pampered. Shampoo and Deep Condition your hair and never comb or brush it while wet. Avoid as much as heat as possible. Allow your hair to breath for at least 2 weeks before applying another weave or any chemical treatments.
      You can wear your hair in a nice style that does not require heat or tons of hair products, or wear a wig, there are alot of cute human hair lace front wigs if you are going for a natural but temporary look.

      YOUR HAIR MAY APPEAR TO GROW FASTER IN A WEAVE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT BOTHERING IT, OR PULLING IT OUT BY COMBING IT EVERY DAY. TO SOME IT MAY SEEM TO BREAK HAIR OFF SINCE AFTER A WEAVE YOU MAY HAVE ALOT OF DEAD HAIR BUT THAT IS NORMAL, SINCE EVERYONE SHEDS HAIR DAILY.

  18. QUESTION:
    Can weaves help your hair to grow..?
    I was thinking about getting a sew in, and i need to give my hair a break.
    it was reallly damaged last year, and this year i started getting it back in shape and healthy again, and i got a trim, but i was thinking about getting a weave. i want a short hair style weave though,
    not long. i just have a style in mind with short hair, since im giving my natural hair a break.

    will this help to grow it out a bit?
    ALSO, how much does it cost to get it done? since im getting it done, but with a short hairstyle, kinda like a bob, it shouldnt be more than 0-150, right?
    thnx for the answers :)

    • ANSWER:
      1) Weaves will help you retain length as any braids would because you aren’t doing things like straightening or even combing through your hair.
      2) You need to take care of your hair under the weave or else you will have severe breakage when it comes time to take it down
      3) I have no idea how much a weave costs. People charge about around here but, you have to buy your hair.

  19. QUESTION:
    is braiding your hair with weave bad for your hair?
    i was told that if you braid your hair with weave it can pull your hair out. i want to get my hair braided so i dont have to put heat in it so my hair will grow- is this wrong

    ohhh and when i get it braided i’ll probably leave it in for about 1-2 weeks and oil it every 3 days is this good for my hair?

    • ANSWER:
      i braid and twist hair. i also keep mine braided. my hair is down my back. it keeps my hair growing so i won’t throw it in a pony tail and it brakes off. i clip my ends first then get it braided. i dont put tracks in my hair because i dont like the bonding glue, it take your hair out

  20. QUESTION:
    Why was the texture of my hair totally different, crunchy and dry after removing Indian hair weave?
    I really really want to get another weave again but I am afraid of the same thing happening to my hair. I had the weave in for 7 weeks. The specialist said 6-8 is normally how long its left in. When we took it out my hair was horrible. It was totally dry, crunchy, a nightmare. It has been a year since and the original texture of my hair is back. I am happy with it but I would like to help it grow. I have always been told that having weave will help your hair grow because it is protected from the sun and other environmental elements that can harm it.

    Does anyone have any tips, advice, or education on it that will help me? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair was probably dried out from the weave, if you don’t use oil sheen to hydrate your scalp you can dry your hair out. Also weave doesn’t make your hair grow it can actually make it break off. Try messaging your scalp to stimulate the nerves and keep your hair hydrated. Trim your ends 3 to 4 weeks to stop split ends and do not use hair spray or gel, that will damage your hair. If you relax your hair try taking longer breaks in between touch up’s and just get it blown out and hot combed or flat ironed. Drink a lot of water and eat a well balanced diet. Once your hair is healthy you will notice growth and fullness a lot sooner.

  21. QUESTION:
    does braiding your hair helps it grow? african american women plz help!?
    okay i get perms very six weeks but since its the summer im not getting a perm til late august ( my hair grow a tad bit faster with no perm for a while) Now if i braid my hair with no weave ( natural) liike every 2 weeks or w.e. will it increase the rate of hair growth…..also i have african american hair

    • ANSWER:
      No. braids themselves do not cause your hair to grow. Your hair will grow no matter what you do to it as long as you don’t damage the hair follicles in your scalp.

      It does help your hair to grow by keeping your hands out of it for a while. Basically when you have braids, you can’t brush your hair, relax it it, etc. so it allows your hair to rest in it’s natural state.

      Relaxers don’t stop hair growth (if they did then my hair wouldn’t be down my back nor would my sister’s) but they do cause breakage if you leave them on for too long which I see a lot of aa women doing. A relaxer should NOT make your hair stick straight. If you’re leaving it in until it’s straight instead of just relaxing the curl a bit then you are over processing your hair.

      I do think that you will have some breakage due to not having a relaxer for a while because your hair is going to have two different textures in one strand and the new growth is going to be stronger than the old relaxed ends. It happens to everyone who’s had a relaxer and let’s it grow out so the best thing to do is to use super hydrating shampoos and conditioners and leave-in conditioners to keep your hair healthy and not dry so it doesn’t break as much. But there still will be breakage, ESPECIALLY if the braids are too tight.

      Happy braiding!

  22. QUESTION:
    Does Cornbraids Help Your Hair Grow?!?!?
    I currently have corn braids in my hair (not with my own hair tho, its weave) i moisturize my braids daily with luster’s S-curl and then put some castor oil on the braids. How can i tell if my hair is growing through the cornbraids??

    • ANSWER:
      Cornbraids/rows are what is known as a protective style. You are using decent products on your hair and your sole concern should be keeping the hair moisturised and strong. Your hair will definitely be growing as it is not being combed and manipulated daily as it would if it were worn out. However, if you braid too tightly or don’t moisturise enough, it could get damaged. You sound like you have that taken care of though.

      If your hair is so wrapped in the weave that you cannot see any ends sticking out or fuzz of your real hair poking out then you will only know how much it has grown when you remove the weave. Next time measure your hair before going into the protective style then when it comes out, measure again to see how much length you have retained. All hair grows, even better in well cared for protective styles BUT you only retain that growth if it is well cared for. Well cared for and moisturised hair does not split or break as much and therefore length is retained.

    good/bad things about hair weave?
    alrighty. im a mixed 16 year old but i’ve got that “black girl hair”. uhh kinky, short (shoulder length) dark brown in some spots, black in others. i wore my hair in braids from the time i was 3 to the end of seventh grade. ive been wearing my hair down since 8th grade (getting perms every three months or so) and i started wearing clip in human hair extensions on 8th grade graduation. well im sick of the clips. it gets on my nerves to ALWAYS have to hide them when i dont have that much hair to hide them with! so i wanna get weave. pro’s/cons? how do i take care of it? can i wash it? how much does it cost? how long does this take? does your hair grow at all? how long do i leave it in? those are the questions that come to mind…feel free to tell me anything else important.

  25. QUESTION:
    Extensions, Weaves and Growing Out Your Hair?
    So, I’m getting married next year, and I’d like to have a long hairstyle. But, I have really short hair that I absolutely love. Basically, I just want long hair for my wedding. I was wondering what my best option is for that. I’m not really excited about growing out my hair. I’m not really sure what the benefits and problems are with extensions and weaves.

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows about 6″ a year, so if you have short hair right now, you won’t get much farther than shoulder length without a little help.

      If you really want long hair for the wedding, but don’t want to commit to it any other time, I’d suggest a fall, 3/4 wig, or a full wig. You can get them with human or synthetic hair, and there are a lot out there that so real, no one would know it wasn’t your hair! (well, unless they knew you had short hair) ;)

      If your hair is under 3″ in length, I’d advise against extensions or weaves, as they can add a bit of weight and pull on your own hair (it’s not comfy). Also, you are going to be spending a lot of money and time to get them in, wear them, and then get them taken out – a lot just for one day, esp if you don’t really want long hair for every day. If you do want extensions for sure, I’d go with clip in ones which will work on short hair (if it’s super short though, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to see the clips).

      The advantages to a wig or fall, is that you can get a really nice quality one for cheaper than it would be to get extensions. You can also have a hairdresser style it in exactly the style you want ahead of time, and it’s ready to go on your wedding day. It doesn’t matter what you do to your hair underneath, and you can also wear the piece to your gown fitting and see how everything will look.

      Having grown out my own hair from under an inch long, and also from wearing clips, extensions, wefts, braids, wigs, and falls, that’s my professional and personal experience. :)

      Hope that helps!

  26. QUESTION:
    how do i help my dyed damaged hair?
    i dyed my hair last nov and everysince my hair has been coming out. I got cronrows to make it grow but it just damaged my hair even more. now i have a sew in weave. now every night i grease my hair with carrot oil,temple balm,olive oil and sulfur 8. but i switch it up one day ill do carrot oli then the next day ill do olive oil. do u guys think that will help. and also do sew in weaves make your hair grow? also i heard that cronrows supposed to make your hair grow not damaged it. do u guys think that it really could of been that dye damaged it instead of the cronrows. oh yeah and i’am african american. so please someone please help me,help me!!!!!

    • ANSWER:
      No! No! No! What you’re doing is making yout hair worse! Braiding damaged hair does nothing but makes it break #1. Second off Sew-in weave… even though I love it.. is going to make it worse AGAIN.. And most of all You’re putting OIL in your hair which is doing nothing but damaging it even more!!! No No No! And you’re switching products.. that’s bad… Listen to me.. go to Sally’s and get a bottle of Dr. Miracles Moisturizing Shampoo! You need a moisturizer! Leave the oil and hair grease alone and sit back and watch the change in your hair. It’s pretty expensive stuff but it’s worth it! Keep using Dr. Miracle products though.. switching products is a bad thing.

  27. QUESTION:
    easy ten points, on weave in hair extensions!?
    I really want to get long hair, and trust me, I’ve tried ever single product that is supposed to make your hair grow and i get nothing out of them. My hair is about shoulder length, but i want long hair, badly. I want to get weave in hair extensions, but my friends told me, its a lot of time and money put into them. my friends say, “you have to go every month and replace them, because they get loose, and its about 100 dollars every month? whats the point” if that’s true, i’m not spending that much money on weave in hair, i might just get clip-in ones. But, can you sleep with clip-in ones, go swimming with them, jump around with out them falling out? ugh, help!

    • ANSWER:
      I would just get clip ins. Honestly, weave in are just way too much money and maintenance. Yeah, okay, you may have some difficulties wearing them around water, but for the money they cost compared to the weave in, it will be worth it. Jumping around with them won’t be too bad. Swimming might cause a problem but just experiment with them in water first before going out in public or in front of any one else without knowing how they last.

  28. QUESTION:
    What do you think about a girl who wears a weave?
    So, my friend is having problems with hair breakage. I suggested to her to get a sew-in weave, because it really helps your hair grow out fast. So, she was like “uhh.. no, i don’t want a weave.” I don’t have a problem with that, but she said it like it was disgusting/ I didn’t like her tone of voice. I’ve gotten a weave twice, and it has been the BEST thing to grow out my hair. What was she thinking?

    • ANSWER:
      What was she thinking? She was probably thinking that she didn’t want to put the time and money into the weave. She was probably thinking that she just prefers to leave her hair either as long or as short as she likes it. She was also thinking that she wanted a more natural way of growing out her hair.

      To her, a weave may be disgusting. But that’s her opinion. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t like you any less for getting your own weaves.

      My aunt once tried to get me to get a weave. I also told her no (and probably in that same tone of voice). However, she respected my feelings and didn’t push the issue. I don’t like weaves for myself because I like my hair just the way it is.

      As far as your friend’s hair breakage, I do remember a product that my sister and I once used. We used African Pride hair products. My sister still uses them today. They have a wonderful scent and use all natural ingredients. One product they offer is Magical Gro Oil that helps hair grow longer and controls breakage. It can be found at Sally Beauty Supply. The website is listed below. If you aren’t near a Sally Beauty Supply, you may be able to find African Pride products near you.

  29. QUESTION:
    What are some good water based moisturizers for African American hair?
    Also what are some good shampoos to make your hair grow. I am trying to grow my own hair out because I hate weave so much! huh!!! Also how do you straighten black people hair without perms and not damaging it with a flat iron.

    • ANSWER:
      Biolage by matrix is very good. (salon products) What will grow your hair is you taking good care of it by washing it once a week(african americans should wash their hair 1 time a week to build up the oils in their hair, more then that will make your scalp dry. Also keeping your scalp conditioned and greased. Brushing your hair at night stimulating your scalp is good to it increases blood flow to your hair follicles and makes it grow.Now if your wearing a perm and want to grow out your natural hair, actually the best thing for that is to keep it in braids or cornrows (keeping it greased in between) and when its time to take the old braids out just get your hair trimmed (not cut) to get that old perm off the ends and put it back up in the braids. Leaving you hair alone and letting it rest from the chemicals and heat is the best thing. hope this helps (20year stylist)

    I have a weave right now(it’s sewn) but I want to soon take it out. I want my hair to grow long. Is there any african american girls with long hair that can give me some tips. I really need the help! Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hi yes a weave is for your hair if it is sewn in, because your hair is growing underneath and it is protected, for there is nothing for you to do with your hair. If you have used glue please be careful when taking it out as this can take some of your hair out.

    • ANSWER:
      You have put a lot of stress on your hair, and it just broke off. Most black people have fine hair and it may tend to be a little dry. Any kind of prolonged stress, like the weave, would put so much pressure on the hair, that is eventually broke off. This is quite common.

      You just need to leave it alone for now. It will grow! You may be able to use a relaxer, depending on the condition, and you should just treat your hair a lot more gently. Don’t use anything other than what is necessary! The more you do to it, the worse it will get. Repair the damage, leave it alone so it can grow (will take forever when you wait for it) and treat it well.

      Be careful what you do with it next time. You may be one of those with weaker hair. You can’t do what everyone else does. Check with a professional stylist before attempting anything on your own.

The front of my hair is a little past my shoulders but the back of my hair is shorter. Would I be able to get hair sewn in without cutting it?

      No. just braid your hair and sew it in, if you cut it any more it would be harder to braid and your hair needs to be braided to be able to get it sewned in, hopefully your getting this done in a shop

    Hair Weave Question!!!!?
    So I know know nothing about hair weaves other than that they make your hair longer than what it is.
    I had to chop all of my hair of basically because I was stupid and kept dying it month after month with cheap 8 dollar hair dye killing my hair.
    I was looking in to getting a weave maybe as I miss my long hair and II really have nothing to do with short hair. My hair also grows very very slow naturally without dying/straightening it, so I am very anxious to have long hair again.
    if anyone who is like an expert/pro with hair weaves could email me that would be awesome!!!!!!
    my email is falconsxcheer@aim.com
    I don’t know if this has to do anything with it, but I am caucasion. I just know that alot of african americans get hair weaves, and I didn’t know if it was something just for their type of hair.

    THANKS A BUNCH GUYS!!

    • ANSWER:
      Anybody can get hair weaves and extensions.

      The problem with hair weaves is that they never looks really natural and you can’t dye them, but if you want the highest quality fusion ones from salons it costs about 0-1000.

      But if you did want to get extensions, I would recommend the clip ins. They are much cheaper, around – 40 bucks and they look pretty much the same. Plus you can take them out whenever you want and they don’t damage your hair.

      And if you decide not to get extensions, pantene shampoo and conditioners are great for your hair. They reduce damage and allow your hair to grow faster and stronger.

      Good Luck! I hope you get the hair you want! :)

    tips and tell stories about your hair

    • ANSWER:
      Things You’ll Need:

      * a boar bristle hairbrush
      * a prong hairbrush
      * natural shampoo

      Step1
      Don’t wash your hair! Only wash it every 3rd to 4th day. This will keep your hair from losing its valuable oils that nourish and protect the hair shafts. Keep you hair in braids during the 3-4 day.
      Step2
      Rub a prong brush all around your scalp to activate the hair follicles into producing more hair, and to make the hair grow faster. Massage it all around your scalp for about 10 minutes every day.
      Step3
      Brush your hair from root to tip using your boar bristle brush to pull the oils of the roots down to the ends. This will keep your hair healthy and moisturized. 100 strokes!
      Step4
      Buy and use a natural shampoo when it is time to wash your hair. Find one that sues natural ingredients instead of chemicals, perfumes, or dyes.

  40. QUESTION:
    I have afro-caribbean hair, weave or clip-on extensions? Please answer!?
    I have afro hair which is thick in texture but when relaxed it’s less thick. I have previously worn clip-on extensions before, and they looked very nice on me. However it used to hurt my scalp sometimes and I couldn’t wait to get home & remove the clips from my hair. As for weaves, I have worn one before and it also looked nice but they are so expensive! Clip-on extensions cost less and I have to pay for them with my own money :( But weaves don’t hurt my hair and the feel like my own.

  41. QUESTION:
    Getting my sew in weave out today. Will my hair be damaged?
    I’ve had sort I’d bad experiences with weaves. I got one put in about two years ago and it broke my hair off, but he lady that put it in wasn’t too good. The person I’m going to now convinced me to get one because she told me it can help grow out your hair if you get it put in correctly. She’s really good at weaving btw. So I’ve had it in since febuary and I’m getting it out today. I’ve gone to her a few times so she could wash it and I spray my scalp sometimes. I’m really nervous now though because I’m just afraid my hair will be damaged.

    • ANSWER:
      Weaves doesn’t help help hair grow more, weaves keep your ends protected so when your hair grows your ends won’t be all damaged and breaking off so your hair will get longer over time. A lot of reasons why black women tend to not have long hair is cuz they keep pressing and peaking their haor and they don’t never trim the ends so their hair grows but their ends break so their hair looks the same. I had a couple bad weaves that pull my hair out of my scalp, usually because the salon people braid so tight, black hairdressers usually deal with happy thick hair so they’re hands get use to being tough on everybodys hair so they sometimes forget to ask if people are tenderheaded, just makesure that your hair person knows that you don’t want her to braid to tight it sew on tight.

  42. QUESTION:
    Does your significant other mind if you wear weave or not?
    Well, I’m a single and I do wear weave. I like weave because it saves me time (since I’m a busy college student), I can have different looks without damaging my hair in which my hair can grow longer and thicker. I stopped getting relaxers last year and went natural. Since then I’ve been putting sewn-in tracks and corn rows (with weave) in my hair so that I can let my hair get longer before I expose my natural fro. I don’t really like how my hair looks short. So my stylist is always telling me to wear my real hair and I keep telling her I’m not ready for that. She keeps saying, “what are you going to do when you get married? Your husband is gonna see your real hair eventually, etc.” I mean yes, he will see my real hair but at the same I feel that if he’s going to be with me, he needs to except me no matter if I wear weave or not. Am I wrong for this?

    That’s why I was curious, what does your significant other think about your wearing a weave? Is it a big deal?

    • ANSWER:
      Mine doesn’t mind, actually he loves it!

      My advise to you is to love and cherish yourself, and do what YOU like to do with yourself no matter if that’s wear your hair up, down, weaved…whatever! Because its not him your trying to empress, its you.

  43. QUESTION:
    How do you maintain weave (washing, new growth, e.t.c)?
    I’m thinking about wearing a weave for a while to grow my hair out. I’ve never worn a weave before, so I have many questions!!
    In your answer include the following please:
    1) I know when wearing a weave, the stylist usually leaves the hair along your hairline out to make the weave seamless. What do you do with this hair when the new growth starts coming in from the relaxer?
    2) How do you wash your hair when wearing a weave?
    3) What products would you use for washing?
    4) My real hair is naturally very dry. What products would keep my hair moisturized without weighing the weave down and making it look greasy?
    5) When done properly, does weave really help your hair grow out?
    6) Please include any other information you feel that I’d need to know.
    Help would be greatly appreciated. Please and thanks!!!!
    To, clarify, i mean i want track-weave, not braids.

      what type of weave do you want, when doing tracks you can braid your hair up and then sew the tracks into the braids or you can bond the tracks with hair glue onto your scalp there is also something called a stocking cap weave where the tracks are put onto a cap that is then placed onto your head. I prefer the sewing into the braids. You don’t have to leave any of your hair out, they can do a full head weave it looks natural, I can send you some pics of mine when I had a full head weave. Since you said you have dry hair you may want to buy hair sheen by luster’s that comes with a small tube like device, you can use this to get inside the braids and add moisture with out saturating the weaved hair with grease. As your hair grows the tracks will loosen because the braids will start to grow out, you can have the beautician tighten up the tracks with new thread. I kept my sewn in weave in for about 6 weeks. I had 22inches so I could always do something new, I would crimp it, curl it, shirly temple curl it, wear it straight, I cut it right before I took it out. I did grow my hair but I wouldn’t suggest you do this if you just recently relaxed your hair because the braids can sometimes break relaxed hair. I use to wash the weave hair with regular shampoo I would wash my scalp with pantene relaxed and natural. I would even go to the salon and have them wash and set it, it cost a little more than doing my natural hair but they always did a nice job.

  44. QUESTION:
    Do Weaves Damage your Natural Hair?
    I’m 16 and I’ve had two sew-in weaves done in the past 4 months. I have it all in and left a couple of days between my first weave and then the second one. I need to get a new one put on soon and although I really like them because my natural hair just doesn’t grow, I’m a bit worried if I ever want to just wear my hair naturally out (I’ve never relaxed it or anything but I’m mixed race so it’s not a full on afro, more corkscrew if that makes any difference) it’ll be damaged from all the weaves I’ve had/ intend to have in the future. I worry about this especially when I look at Naomi Campbell:

    http://cm1.theinsider.com/media/0/80/31/naomi-campbell-bald-4.0.0.0×0.725×910.jpeg

    For the first few days I have a new one it really pulls on the little hairs on the front of my head but after a few days that goes away. My hair has grown about 2 inches with this weave on and it was the same with the last one. Can anyone tell my if my hair will get really thin over time because of weaves, and also maybe some tips on ensuring this doesn’t happen? Thank you!

    • ANSWER:
      If you do it too tight or go to a bad hair stylist it will eventually cause serious hair loss also called traction alopecia.A good article to help you about proper weave care is :http://www.growafrohairlong.com/weaves.html

  45. QUESTION:
    If I get a weave, my hair can’t get greasy, right?
    I am pretty positive I want to get a weave. I have naturally kinky curly african american hair ( i”m bi-racial) and I had a bad experience with a relaxer, so just to grow my natural hair back in, I’m getting a weave. I also have a problem with oil skin, though. And I have bangs, the haircut that goes straight across with my natural hair and I straighten it. I stopped straightening it, and I would like to keep my original hair cut, I”m thinking about switching though. Should I get a middle part, and keep my bangs out of my face, or should I keep my bangs?

    ****I read that your hair in your face causes oil, and i have that problem on my forehead. If I get bangs across my forehead with a weave, and the natural oils from my scalp aren’t getting onto my hair, can the same oily build up still get on my skin?

    • ANSWER:
      Weaves can, and do, get greasy. That’s partly why they are temporary.

      No! Do not part your hair down the middle! The only person in the world who can pull that off is Naomi Campbell. Okay, well maybe you can rock the middle part if you have a very narrow face. But only if you have a narrow face and pronounced cheek bones. Otherwise, you’ll look frumpy.

      And yes, bangs can promote oil production on your forehead. That oil can build up in your hairline or on the hair itself. So yes, the natural oils produced in your scalp will get on the weave and get on your forehead.

      And, if you are trying to undo the damage of the relaxer, getting a weave or extensions will not promote healthy hair growth. In fact, they’ll do the opposite. Just take a look at most any Black or Mixed woman who has worn weaves/extensions for longtime, almost all of them have receding hair lines (alopecia).

      Your best bet is to invest in a different hair regimen if you want to restore your hair.

  46. QUESTION:
    i feel like all my problems will be solved if i get a hair-weave, am i being disillusioned?
    I absolutely HATE my hair. It stops me from being attractive. Aside from my hair i am quite attractive. I feel totally down with this thin, short, scraggly hair because i feel i look ugly.

    I recently heard about getting a full head of weave in hair (so all my natural hair will be hidden) I know some black women do this so i dont see why i cant do this seen as i am totally dissatisified with my thin hair that hardly ever grows.

    From any one who has had a weave before (with thin hair) does it totally destroy your hair? even tho i am not all that bothered because my hair is horrible anyway.

    if done properly (i dont mind spending a bit) would it look natural?

    I am worried that i might go to effort of getting it and still feel ugly. in fact its probably true.. bt i jjust feel so ugly and horrible now with my hair..

    would you get the weave if you were in my position? i truly feel like having nice hair would make me feel so beautiful .. maybe i am just disillusioned tho

    • ANSWER:
      Um yeah. What you need is full head extensions, not a weave. It won’t look right on you. do they even do them for white women? I don’t think they look ‘natural’ on black women but they still look good if that makes sense, because when their natural hair is straightened it looks kind of shiny and a bit hard so the weaves kind of fit in and make it look softer at the time time. I don’t know what I’m on about XD
      But no, you should not get a weave. Talk to your hairdresser about the extensions – your natural hair could be covered or it could have them added underneath, either way it will look much better on you.

  47. QUESTION:
    Are there any negitive effects of olive oil on your hair?
    I’ve never tried oilve oil, I had long thick black hair, with a relaxer. Last year I had traveled and put weave in my hair it really pulled my hair out. My hair is still long but thin.It is growing back with thicker new growth. My friend told me to try olive oil on my hair. I’m not sure what the olive oil can really do to my hair. Do you think it will help my hair or just cause more damage? Any suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t really know if it will cause more damage to your hair because everybody has different type of hair. I have black medium hair with a relaxer also. I use Mega care olive oil it repairs and mosturizes I try not to use too much because it tends to go on my forehead and greasy but it has a pleasant smell. I also use Organics Olive Oil Cream Mosturizer it doesn’t break my hair…but I’m running out of it lol. I’m not trying to convince you which products you should take or not, but try to find the product you feel the best that’s capable with your hair.

  48. QUESTION:

    dont trust hair dressers I had my relaxers done by one & now my hair is damaged cuz of her

    • ANSWER:
      Getting braids or trimming your hair does not make it grow faster. Your hair grows from under the scalp, so how can trimming the ends make it grow faster? Doesn’t make sense. Your hair will grow the same amount when it’s natural that it grew when it was relaxed. The difference will be in how much hair you retain. You’re experiencing a lot of breakage from relaxers, so with natural hair you might be able to hold on to some of that growth so your hair can get longer. It has nothing to do with growth from the scalp, but more with length retention. Also, once you’re natural you probably won’t have to put anything on your scalp, not unless you have an extremely dry scalp. Relaxers dry out your hair and scalp and that’s why you have to oil or grease it. With natural hair you won’t have to do that, an exception might be if you wear braids during cold weather and your scalp is exposed to the cold, dry weather then your scalp might become dry.

      If you don’t want to do the big chop then you can wear braids or other protective styles like rod sets or curly hairstyles. Any hairstyle that will keep you from having to comb/brush/style/heat your hair daily is a protective style. Your hair grows about 1/2 inch per month, so every month you can trim a 1/2 inch of hair as it grows in. Just make sure your braids aren’t too tight or that will damage your hair. It’ll be hard trying to take care of two different textures, and you will experience some breakage where the new growth and relaxed hair meet – that’s natural.

      You can find transitioning videos for hairstyles and products on youtube that you can use during this phase.

  49. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my hair out?
    My hair is kind of a bob like Sharon Osbourn and my friends always suggest me to get extensions or weave, but I’ll just ruin my hair. I hate braids because it’s too tight and I can’t pull it off. I feel ugly with short hair, because the guy I like always touches his and my friend’s mane in an intimate way, so maybe he likes long hair on girls. My best friend once touched my hair and said “Oh, my. Your hair feels like my wool rug.” I see hair touching as an intimate thing, like when a girl combs another girl’s hair, but my hair isn’t long enough to do that! :( I’ve tried doing stuff to it and putting a scarf around it, but it always falls off when I’m asleep. What’s the best way to grow hair quickly?

    • ANSWER:
      this is going to sound really gross but use horse shampoo. it smells really bad! so wash with tht then if u hav frizzy hair take ur favorite lotion and rub a little bit in your hail(not near roots, it will make them look greasy) not only will it stop the smell but it well stop the static!

    4) should i wash less but do dry washes to my hair when i need it

    which one? people say dont wash it wil grow faster other say wash it to clean and get the dirt from out of your hair folicles so it allows the hair to grow?
    ??

    • ANSWER:
      Okay, whether or not you wash your hair has nothing to do with hair growth from the scalp. Your hair will always grow the same amount every month no matter what you do to it – there are exceptions like permanently damaging your scalp which can cause permanent baldness. Likewise, there isn’t anything that can make your hair grow faster. This is a myth. Your hair growth is determined by your genes and nothing can speed or slow it unless you can change your genes. The average hair growth is 1/2 inch per month.

      Now, people with dreds are able to grow very long hair because they don’t comb or brush their hair – washing it or not has nothing to do with it. It’s the fact that every time you comb, brush, style, and use heat on your hair you risk breaking off your hair. The breakage is what keeps you at shorter hair lengths. With this said, lets go back to making your hair grow faster. What if this were possible? It wouldn’t matter if your hair grew faster if all it does is constantly break off, because you’re still going to be at the same short lengths. You need to focus on length retention (keeping your hair from breaking) rather than trying to make it grow faster.

      Blacks have a fragile hair type that easily breaks if too much heat is used, too tight hairstyles, and if it’s combed or brushed too roughly.

      If you’re blow drying your hair regularly then you are straightening it, though you’re not getting it bone-straight. Yes, it’s natural that natural hair shrinks and looks shorter than it actually is. This happens with EVERY natural, and it also happens with ANYONE who has curly hair, no matter the race. You don’t have to blow dry your hair, you *choose* to do this because you want to show off your length. This can set you back in the length department, because heat can make your hair break off.

      1) What’s your question? Like I said, you “choose” to do this, so don’t make it seem like it’s something out of your control.

      2) No, washing has nothing to do with faster or slower hair growth. In fact, it’s just plain nasty if you go months without washing. But, don’t shampoo every day.

      3) No, nothing can make your hair grow faster. Focus on length retention rather than faster growth.

      4) It’s up to you. Do whatever you deem necessary to keep your hair healthy and to prevent as much breakage as you can. Lets go back to the average hair growth (1/2 inch per month). After 1 year your hair should have grown 6 inches. Now, if you don’t have 6 more inches in length by this time next year then that means you had breakage along the way. I went a whole year without breakage and kept all the my growth. It looked like my hair grew fast, but it didn’t; it’s the fact that I kept all my length is what helped my hair get longer. I did that by using low manipulation hairstyles. I have never used any heat on my natural hair and the only time I combed it was when I needed to detangle it. I kept it moisturized and didn’t cut, or trim, it. Also, I used low manipulation hairstyles; the only hairstyle I wore was a headband with my curly fro. It doesn’t matter to me that my hair shrinks and people can’t tell how long it is – I’m passed trying to impress people and am focusing on having healthy hair.

      If you want to grow your hair very long then you have to practice protective styling and you’re not going to be able to wear your hair down all the time. Just something to think about. This is because your clothes and the harsh weather will begin breaking off your hair, so this is why the few blacks who have grown their hair long (waist-length, mid back length) have done so by keeping it in a bun and not wearing it out often.

      One more point to make about dirty/clean hair and faster hair growth. I’ve literally had a period where I’ve gone months at a time without washing and combing my relaxed hair and I’ve had times where I washed my relaxed hair regularly. My hair grew the same amount each time. Though, I will say that when I went months without washing and combing I saw long lengths, but this is because I wasn’t combing my hair, so I wasn’t breaking it off. Eventually, when I did detangle it (lots of tangles after months of not combing) I did end up losing inches each time because of the bad tangles. But, when I washed my hair regularly was when my hair was at it’s healthiest. So, find that good balance between not combing/brushing/using heat/styling regularly And conditioning regularly; this combination will help with growth AND the health of your hair.

      Good luck, and visit some natural hair forums.

    How long can your hair grow from braids having them for 6 months but getting them redone?
    I’m growing my hair out some more…I’m getting some braids Friday and basically I want to leave them in for two months also with washing them…and I want to do this all the way through July so how many inches can my hair grow? I think it’s about 6 months total that I’ll be having braids (also getting them redone)

  2. QUESTION:
    Did box braids grow your hair?
    My hair broke at the back due to over-processing and to give it a rest, I put in box braids. I use pink oil to oil my roots, and a spray called Better Braids to condition. So if there is anyone out there who had box braids, did it grow your hair? Oh and if it helps I am African-American Guyanese with wavy hair (not as tightly coiled as a regular african american’s).

    • ANSWER:
      Braids do encourage hair growth. I just got my hair braided yesterday. If you leave your box braids in for at least 5 months, your hair should grow. Make sure that when you do take your braids out, you don’t get a relaxer right away and remember to Condition your hair 3 times a week. This will keep your hair from falling out. If you could, buy a hair growth vitamin with amino acid to take while you wear your box braids. It will make your hair stronger and healthier.

  4. QUESTION:
    Do braids grow your hair?
    I have had my braids in for a month, and am going to keep it in for another month. I want to know how long i should expect my hair to grow, in 2 months with kinky twists braids. I have been putting olive oil in, spraying it with braid spray, and moisturizing everynight.
    P.S. I also have a little dandruff so advice on that would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Braids help you retain length not grow your hair. You hair would grow anyway but it the constant combing/brushing/etc. that makes it seem like it’s not growing if you are pulling out hairs. You should expect about 1 inch of growth after 2 months.

  5. QUESTION:
    will your hair grow if its in indivisual braids with your own hair?
    i braided my hair up in indivisual braids and was wondering will it grow? and how long should i keep them up

    • ANSWER:
      You hair is going to grow at the rate it is naturally programmed to grow. People perceive that their hair grows faster when it is in a safe unaltered state. Think about it like this, if you see kids that are young every day they dont seem to be growing any but if you go without seeing them for a little while it seems like they have grown alot. When you put your hair in braids or any safe style your hair is undisturbed as well there is little to NO BREAKAGE so it appears that it has grown more or faster. But these are just myths and perceptions. If you do want your hair to grow with less damage then braiding it and keeping it clean will help. But keep in mind when you braid it dont braid too tight!!!! Also there will be hair “COLLECTIVE HAIR LOSS”. This is simply the hair that sheds on a daily basis that has been trapped or caught in the braids, no more or less hair that would be lossed when you comb or brush daily except it will be collected in stead of washing down the drain or caught in the comb or brush.

      You can keep braids in depending on your hair texture for up to 6 weeks without worrying about locking or over tangling of your hair. But you want to pay attention to keeping a scarf on at night and still washing your hair or scalp cleansing with a damp wash cloth or a product like Organic Root Simulater Scalp Cleanser (purple gel).

  6. QUESTION:
    Do braids (cornrows) help your hair grow?
    Hey, I’ve been looking 4 a solution to help my hair grow faster, you know, give it alittle boost, and I heard that braiding your hair (in cornrows), along with braiding extensions into them will help your hair grow. True? Any info as always iz much apprectiated. Thanx!:)

    • ANSWER:
      If your braids or cornrows aren’t too tight then you should be fine; just make sure you take care of your real hair while you have them in.

      To answer your question: No. Your hair grows from underneath your scalp so anything you add to your hair or any hairstyle you have will not help it grow faster from the scalp.

      BUT, what people often mistake for their hair growing faster is actually them being able to retain length. Hair breakage can keep you at the same length for a very long time and it can actually make your hair get shorter. Braids, wigs, weave, buns, twists, cornrows, etc. are considered protective styles. With your hair in these types of styles you are less likely to manipulate your hair too much. Manipulation = combing/brushing/styling/heat/etc.

      Blacks have the most fragile hair out of any race and our hair EASILY breaks off, so we have to be extra gentle and very careful about how we style and comb/brush our hair and make sure we don’t use too much heat. You don’t see too many blacks with mid-back or waist-length hair because many don’t know how to properly care for it and with the intricate styles and weaves and tight braids many blacks are known to wear this is what causes our hair to break off so that it doesn’t get longer, which makes many people falsely believe that blacks can’t grow long hair.

      So, with your hair in braids you are able to retain ALL of your growth that would probably break off during your normal styling. Lets say your hair can grow 3 inches per month. You only notice your hair is getting 1/2 inches longer every month so it’s easy to think your hair isn’t growing from the scalp. In actually, your hair IS growing 3 inches every month from your scalp, but you can’t hold on to all that growth because it keeps breaking off during your regular styling routines. So, you put your hair in braids for a month and hope your hair will “grow faster.” When the month is over you take down your braids and notice your hair has gotten 3 inches longer instead of just 1/2 inches! This isn’t because your hair has grown from your scalp faster than it usually does. Your hair has always grown 3 inches every month, but because the braids has kept you from breaking off your hair you have been able to hang onto ALL 3 inches of growth. Length retention is the key to having longer hair – your hair breaks at the ends, so take very good care of your ends, which is the oldest and driest part of your hair.

      Nothing can make your hair grow faster because this is pre-determined by your genes and nothing can change this. On average, hair grows 1/2 inches per month, or 6 inches per year. Even though hair growth is determined by genes and some people’s hair will grow faster and others slower, most will probably fall into the average.

      I went back to my natural hair last summer and when I cut out all the relaxer I had less than one inch of hair. Six months later I have hair that’s about an inch or two past my earlobe, and this is because I”ve retained ALL of my growth since I cut my hair. Had my hair still be relaxed then it would probably be getting shorter with each touch-up because I had a huge problem with breakage. I plan on having shoulder-lenght hair by the time the one year anniversary of my cutting my hair comes around. It’s funny, because I know people who have never obtained shoulder-length hair because of breakage and improper hair care, and my hair will be longer than their’s in a few months.

      Go ahead and put your hair in braids, just make sure they’re not too tight and that you take good care of your real hair while you have them in.

      Good luck.

  8. QUESTION:
    10 points: Do braids make your hair grow faster? ?
    I don’t know what’s going on. But in November my hair only grew 1/4 inch. But as soon as I got cornrows in December, my hair grew about 3/4 inch. What was up with this, I heard that hair growth happens at the scalp but I don’t understand how I got more with braids than without.
    No, I measured my new growth before I took my braids out. and it was 3/4 inch!

    • ANSWER:
      there is a misconception that braids make your hair grow. Actually, braids only preserve the hair attached to the scalp so their would be no occurrence of breakage. What makes your hair grow is proper care such as using shampoos without harsh sulfates and unhealthy alcohols and regular conditioning treatments.

      But continue to braid your hair. This time, use 1/2 an ounce of Nutiva Extra Virgin Coconut Oil while styling.

    Yarn to make your hair grow faster?
    A girl at work just told me that the secret to growing your hair long faster is to braid your hair with a piece of heavy yarn. The fibers from the yarn help your hair to grow. Wives tale? (That’s what I’m thinking.) Has anyone else heard of this? Is there an actual reason why that would work? Is it a comment belief?
    Just so everyone knows: I’m not actually trying to grow my own hair out. I just want to know about the wives tale.

    • ANSWER:
      the yarn is a complete wives tale. if you want to grow your hair long you really need to commit to it though. make sure you learn your hair type and use the proper shampoos and conditioners. take your vitamins, especially A, E, and Calcium. an Omega3 fatty oil supplement is good too. I always used Cod Liver Oil. try not to bind your hair up into tight styles like ponytails, wash your hair after swimming, stay away from harsh dyes and bleaches for your hair, and get your hair trimmed every couple of months to get rid of dead ends. hope all this helps and good luck with your hair!

    im thinking about getting braids for the summer to grow out my hair without damaging it but do braids damage your hair? i head that they pull back your hairline and make your forhead get bigger the longer u have them in is that true??? or are they healthy for your hair? and how could your hair grow in braids if your hair is braided right against your head?? it seems like to me they wouldnt allow your hair to grow so how do they grow with the braids??

    • ANSWER:
      depending on who does your braids the person that does mines does NOT pull my hair and i’ve been getting braids for years and my hair has grown alot and it is actually a good way to grow hair because your not putting heat in it or a whole bunch of products that gunk up your hair and if the person braids tight then they pull back your hairline and damage your hair just find someone to do braids on you that doesn’t pull and your hair grows because it is braided in with the hair and your hair grows because your nor doing anything to it it’s growing naturally and you can keep them in for up to 3 months but i recommend getting them redone every 1 to 2 months just so that you can wash your hair out and see how much growth has occurred and decide if you want to get braids again

  15. QUESTION:
    can your hair grow long with braids?
    alright so my hair is short like maybe 6in long. i want to keep micro brais for the rest of the school year and though summer vacation but i want my own hair out before school starts. so i wanted to know will having braids make my hair grow faster and about how long would it be when i take them out next year

    • ANSWER:
      Hair genetically grows any wear between 1/4′ and 3/4′ every month. So there is no real way to speed that up, but having braids can be viewed as a protective style that keeps your hair from getting damaged and thus allows you to maintain as much length as possible.

  16. QUESTION:
    Is there any tips on how to make your hair grow?
    my natural hair texture is wavy with a little bit of curls, and it also grows thick, but now i have my hair layered so that it wouldnt be so thick. my hair comes just to my shoulders, but i want it to grow longer. it seems that my hair takes for ever to grow, and i even stop using my straightener b/c that slows it down and damages it. i heard that braiding your hair will help strengthen it and grow it.

    is there any other tips that can help my hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      The most effective way to get your hair to grow is to focus on nutrition (through diet, or supplements). Protein and healthy fats are very important. You can also improve your hair growth with supplements like biotin, pantothenic acid, Inositol, and MSM. I like Caribbean Hair Grow. Talk to your doctor before you take anything.

  17. QUESTION:
    I am african american(Braids) PLEASE HELP!! making hair grow?
    I have Thick shoulder length hair, and i get texturizers which are lighter and softer than a relaxer, i was just wondering does wearing braids make your hair grow better and longer? because now that i am out of school i am wearing braids (with my own hair, no fake hair) to grow my hair longer because i want longer hair and i have heard that by wearing braids your hair grows quicker! PLEASE HELP!!

    • ANSWER:
      Honestly, braiding hair to make it grow is just a myth. It appears longer after you’ve had it in braids due to it shrinking up. And, if you keep in braids long enough it will have actually grown. The fact is hair grows approx. 1/2 inch a month. There are vitamins with biotin that may help a little, but not that much. Be patient and take good care of your scalp. A healthy scalp, patients is the best advice and no trims.
      Good luck with your locks.

  18. QUESTION:
    Does braiding hair help your hair grow longer?
    I used a perm (blow out kit) recently, which in my opinion I will never do again. Instead of “blowing out” my hair, it permed my hair, making my hair almost completely straight and causing me to have to brush it down, similar to Katt Williams. However, my friend, who happens to have a huge afro, asked his mom to braid my hair. When we both got our hair braided, his braids were full and thick with a long hang time, while mine were thin with no hang time at all. Technically, mine weren’t even braids, more like cornrows. When I was about to take them out, my friend told me to leave them in, because they will help my hair grow longer, and make my hair curlier.

    Now, my real question is, does braiding hair help your hair actually grow? If not, does it at least make it curlier?

    Also, before you answer this question, please understand that I am a half black and half Mexican teenage boy, however, my hair is very African American, and black. I hope this helps your answer. Thanks in advance.

    • ANSWER:
      When you braid textured hair, it certainly looks as though it encourages length, but really you’re just pulling out all the kinks and curls – it’s an optical illusion. In fact, if you continue to cornrow your hair (over several years), it will make your hairline recede because of the constant pulling on the roots of your hair.

      However, braiding definitely does make your hair curlier, simply because you’re letting it sit in a braid for so long. A shower usually washes out any curling effect, though. The bottom line is, braiding your hair makes braids in your hair – it doesn’t really effect the length or curliness with any kind of permanence.

  19. QUESTION:
    Which helps your hair grow more, getting perms or braids with weave in your hair?
    when i waz younger i had long thin hair and i waz getting perms it waz down to my sholders, and my mom thoght if i get braids in weave my hair would grow even longer, now that i’m 14yrds old it’s below my ears and now she wants me to start gettin perms cause it save money. and havin long hair in H.S iz the new thing now and if u have short hair kidz gonna talk and i don’t like my hair being short. and if u have thin hair when u get a perm it will look like u don’t have much hair than kidz will try to be funny and call a gurl baid headed.

    So tell me what yall thing, am I right?

    • ANSWER:
      Get your hair braided. See if your mother can find someone around the way that can braid hair for cheap. Once you get your hair braided it can last for about 2-3 months. You should see growth by time you take out your braids. Then get your hair braided again. This is what I do for some of my clients who wants to grow out their hair. After about a year trust me you would have some good growth.

  20. QUESTION:
    Can your hair grow a bit faster if you braid with your natural hair and not with weave. I’m going natural.?
    I got a perm months ago and I plan on not getting one anymore and grow my hair out and make it long like it use to be. so I’m just wondering will my hair grow a bit faster if you braid with your natural hair sometimes i can’t keep my hands out my hair lol so braiding will be the key thing to do i just want it to rest awhile and grow.

    • ANSWER:
      yes it will help as it is a low manipulation method.

  21. QUESTION:
    sleeping with your hair in braids help it grow faster? even slightly?
    Yah man. I need to know.

    • ANSWER:
      Nope…it won’t help. Not even slightly. It may not hurt, because as you sleep on cotton pillow cases (most of us do), it tends to pull your hair, and promotes split ends. So braids may help tame some of the pulling. But the braids may also cause pulling that breaks the hair. You really need to know your hair. However keep in mind the average hair grow is about a half an inch to an inch a month. Braids have nothing to do with it. Growth comes from within. Take your vitamins, eat healthy, drink lots of water, exercise, take care of your hair…then you should start seeing growth.

  22. QUESTION:
    What braided hairstyles make your hair grow?
    im an african american female with course hair and it touches my shoulder.

    • ANSWER:
      Hey braiding DOES help hair grow. Especially those with natural kinky textured hair for the same reason dreads always grow so long and consistently. Without braids natural hair does have a tendency to break (in dry hair when it gets combed it’s like a daily haircut). But braiding can’t make hair grow faster just helps you retain ends. [naturalhairgrows.com]

      1. Two strand twists

      2. Box braids

      3. Cornrows (and you put weave over it)

      4. Palm coil or rolls. You take the hair and roll it in one direction.

      5. Cornrolls

      6. Locs (more permanent than other styles but they certainly grow long)

      Whatever braided style you choose make sure you Deep condition before hand. Leave hair loose and shampoo and then apply your chosen deep conditioner. Next, wash out DC and apply a holding moisturizing product to each section that you twist/roll/braid. Seal ends by applying extra product on them. Sleep in a satin cap. Take out braids at least once a month to shampoo and deep condition and detangle. Or redo a braid at a time. ALWAYS DETANGLE WITH CONDITIONER IN HAIR!

      Follow this routine and I promise you your hair will grow. Goodluck

      MY PRODUCT LIST:
      Deep conditioners: there are store bought ones but I make my own. I like shea butter, olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and honey

      Conditioners: any of the above and I also like Pantene Relaxed and Natural

      Shampoos: Organix, Clairol, Herbal Essences, Pantene, etc.

      Detangling conditioners:Pantene Relaxed and Natural or any conditioner with slip.

      Holding products: Kinky Curly Curling Custard, Hair Rules, Oyin, Miss Jessie’s, Quemet Biology, Anita Grant, Myhoneychild, Carol’s Daughter, etc.

  25. QUESTION:
    does braiding your hair helps it grow? african american women plz help!?
    okay i get perms very six weeks but since its the summer im not getting a perm til late august ( my hair grow a tad bit faster with no perm for a while) Now if i braid my hair with no weave ( natural) liike every 2 weeks or w.e. will it increase the rate of hair growth…..also i have african american hair

    • ANSWER:
      No. braids themselves do not cause your hair to grow. Your hair will grow no matter what you do to it as long as you don’t damage the hair follicles in your scalp.

      It does help your hair to grow by keeping your hands out of it for a while. Basically when you have braids, you can’t brush your hair, relax it it, etc. so it allows your hair to rest in it’s natural state.

      Relaxers don’t stop hair growth (if they did then my hair wouldn’t be down my back nor would my sister’s) but they do cause breakage if you leave them on for too long which I see a lot of aa women doing. A relaxer should NOT make your hair stick straight. If you’re leaving it in until it’s straight instead of just relaxing the curl a bit then you are over processing your hair.

      I do think that you will have some breakage due to not having a relaxer for a while because your hair is going to have two different textures in one strand and the new growth is going to be stronger than the old relaxed ends. It happens to everyone who’s had a relaxer and let’s it grow out so the best thing to do is to use super hydrating shampoos and conditioners and leave-in conditioners to keep your hair healthy and not dry so it doesn’t break as much. But there still will be breakage, ESPECIALLY if the braids are too tight.

      Happy braiding!

  26. QUESTION:
    How Do You Make Your Hair Grow Faster?
    I’m unhappy with my hair length. I want to know ways to make your hair grow faster. I’ve heard braiding helps, so I’m trying that out. I’ve tried aloe on your scalp for an hour, but it didn’t quite help. What are some other, proven, ways to make it grow longer?
    Yeahh, I figured the weed one wasn’t true… And I know my hair won’t grow in an hour,but i kind of kept track over how long my hair grew after that.

    • ANSWER:
      1) stimulate your scalp
      — give yourself a weekly 10 minute scalp massage to increase blood flow and promote growth.Try a few drops of jojoba oil to nourish hair more deeply then shampoo. Jojoba oil is just like the natural oils your scalp produces

      2) infuse with vitamins
      — use a shampoo and conditioner loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and E and minerals such as zinc and Iron. They feed your hair, so it will grow long and healthy
      try: mineral fusion volumizing mineral shampoo and conditioner.
      or just take a multi vitamin pill

      3) get regulular trims
      — its weird to think that cutting your hair could help it grow, but a quick snip every six weekes gets rid of the damaged, split ends that slow hair growth. Between trims, quench dry ends with a leave-in conditioner to keep them from getting worse

      4) control dandruff
      — flakes block your follicles, preventing hair from growing easily. Zinc and a copper bristled brush will help with this

      5) limit use of heat
      — curling irons, flat irons, blow dryers all damage your hair and break it off your hair preventing it from growing healthy and thick

    You took hair skin and nail vitamins, oiled your scalp so that your scalp isn’t dry, washed your hair every 2 weeks, when you take your braids out you also wash with egg.

    • ANSWER:
      Oil is not necessary to be applied every day to the hair. It is just enough to oil the hair just before an hour of washing the hair. But it is necessary to wash hair atleast once in two or three weeks so that the hair may be free from dandruff, dust or anyother unwanted stuffs.

      Hair grows atleast to the length of your index finger every month if you wash it twice and have it dust free and without split ends.

      Hair growth will be half-the-thumb size if it is exposed to more dust.
      Though oil is not required to be applied daily, it is to be applied atleast twice or thrice in a month, as it nourishes the hair and keeps it stable on the following dry-hair days.

      (My hair is 3feet long and am washing it once in a week or once in two weeks.. I never oil my hair except on the day I wash it and still am getting good hair growth.)

    • ANSWER:
      Braiding is stressing the hair, and cornrow braids is more stressing the WHOLE HEAD.

      I’ve had a co-worker got hers done, she was in so much pain, her face was all red from the pain, and no pain pills could relieve the headache she was suffering. She had them taken out the next day! How much she paid for those cornrows? She was making minimum wage, about 0, and another 0 to get them off?

      It is a billion dollar business, and their main job is to make tons of profits, and she was taken for a ride! Braiding, is another form of stressing the hair, and if you have thin hair, instant hair loss in 3 months.

      Save your money instead of buying hair growth products or supplements. Vogue Dec. 2010 issue has a section on biotin, supplements, etc. .

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

      MSN “Vitamins Can Do More Harm Than Good.”

      http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16655168/wid…

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

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

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

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

      Growing 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. . .

      You said you have natural KINKY hair. Your hair is one of the worst hair texture there is, the most fragile, so a lot more TLCs are required. Heating tools causes hair from not growing normally, and hair loss happens to normal hair, combined with chemicals, imagine that happening to your hair, which is the most fragile of all hair types. Relaxers is another no-no to hair like yours. They also cause cancer because of the formaldehyde, and keratin are not even approved by the FDA. FYI

  32. QUESTION:
    Does putting your hair up make your hair grow faster?
    my mom wears scrunchies everyday in a braid or bun, her hair is really long now.
    She told me that her hair used to be as short as mine (shoulders) but then she started wearing it up and it grew like no other.

    I know you aren’t supposed to put your hair up with the elastics if you want it to grow, but what about scrunchies?

    • ANSWER:
      Hair grows about 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month. There are other factors to consider. How fast does your hair grow, your diet, stress. You do not state how long your mother has been growing out her hair. You are correct, using elastics on your hair can cause breakage.

      I suggest eating a well balanced diet. Trim your hair often and do deep conditioning treatments one a month.

Does braiding your hair every night prevent damage to your hair or split ends? Ive been braiding my hair ever since i got it cut. Help anyone? :

      Loose braids will definitly help. It will help by preventing friction between your hair and your pillows. Try buying a satin and silk pillow case, it will help breakage.

  37. QUESTION:
    Does braiding your hair helps it grow? African American women PLEASE help!?
    Before I went off the college two years ago, I used to have hair down to my neck and it was thick. That was because I was living with my mom and she used to do my hair all the time. Anyway, I went off to Penn State and didn’t take care of it like I should have anyway. One day I went to the salon and she cut my hair really short because the ends were damaged and now it’s 2010 and it’s hasn’t grown back to where it was before and I miss my shoulder length. I’ve done everything possible, and now I think my last option is to BRAID it. That’s what my mom keeps telling me that’s only way to get my hair to grow and now that it’s summer, It’s become a pain to do it every morning and I want to enjoy swimming without thinking about getting my hair wet. So I’m hoping if I braid it now, my hair will start to grow more and get it thicker state again. If anyone else has any suggestions about getting my hair to grow please include them with you answers!!!

    • ANSWER:
      No, and unless you have your ends tucked away they won’t retain length either. That what’s your mistaken growth for. Braids don’t grow hair your body does (1/2 per month) braids just help you retain the growth your body has produced which is were the common misconception lies.

      Why do braids retain length? Because your not manipulating it with heat or with your fingers. The more you touch/apply heat to your hair the more it breaks. If you hair is growing at the same time that it is breaking it may give you the illusion that you hair just doesn’t grow when it does.

      Hopefully I’ve shed some light on this common misconception.

  38. QUESTION:
    Do weave caps help your hair grow?
    I don’t have short hair. It’s about 1 – 2 inches past my shoulders, but with my hair it seems to grown A LOT better when I don’t mess with it, like keeping it wrapped. I don’t really like keeping it in braids because I like having my hair out. I love having long hair, so will weave caps help it grow quicker?

    • ANSWER:
      I don’t know if a weave cap would help your hair grow, but I do know that if you go to a health food store and buy silica by cellfood, it will work pretty well. And ask if they have ultra hair also by natures plus and if you take it together, it will be extremely good for your hair and will help it grow.

      I work at a health food store and that’s what I recommend to customers all the time.

      (by the way, the products are all natural so they shouldn’t interfere with any other medication)

    • ANSWER:
      Yeah my mom had that for her hair. It smells horrible.
      Personally I don’t think a single product grows your hair.
      Just get regular trimmings, keep your hair moisturized, oil your scalp, wash your hair everyone 1.5-2 weeks and deep condition bi-weekly.
      I mean your hair should be healthy if you do this and take care of it which results in hair growth. Now obviously products will help your hair to grow but I don’t think sulphur 8 will help. I hear that using natural products is good for hair. Like coconut oil, shea butter etc. I use shea butter shampoo and it makes my hair breakage free when i comb it after shampooing. It’s really good for my hair and there are no fly-a-ways so no hair comes out onto the comb. You can also buy this at Wal-mart – there is a section of african hair products and there is shea butter all naturals shampoo there.

      well when I straighten my hair it make it longer you should have a head scarf on to keep it like that when you go to bed also you can get extensions .but if you do straighten your hair don’t do it to often as its bad for your hair you could twist it or get dread locks as people who have them have long hair (down there backs)

  43. QUESTION:
    African American Hair Question: Do Micro Braids damage your hair?
    I recently started growing out my perm, and i had flat ironed it alot and the sides of my hair started to get shorter and shorter. So now i’m growing it out, and i want to get Micro Braids because i think they look cute, and my hair which is mostly permed hair, wont curl up with curl activator. All my hair isnt the same length so a ponytail does look right. So do micro braids damage your hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Your hair has to be very healthy first, if your hair is damaged get it well again or it might cause more damage then needed. Hot Oil or deep moisturizing treatments work, Style it as little as possible micro braids put a lot of stress on the follicles, think of your hair being pulled to just within its limits 24/7. If you want to try going for cornrow brains on your scalp then normal micro braids, your hair will thank you for it! Less stress for your hair so less possible damage and breaking. But micro braiding is a really good choice for any coarse or thick hair, and is very easy to maintain no brushing needed! Oh if you want to put beads or ribbon in no need to worry about them damaging your hair cause it wont do any more damage! Have fun and remember as little fiddly styling as possible when getting them put in. Try leaving the ends free, there is a girl i know she got half her hair micro braided and left the bottom half undone, she has amazing black hair and now the ends are a firey red and she sets them up in all sorts of styles, today it as each end had been curled it really looked like her hair was on fire! Beautiful!

      Oh and get the ends trimmed in case you have split ends!

  44. QUESTION:
    When transitioning, is it common for your relaxed hair to grow shorter?
    Hello. I have relaxed hair and have been transitioning for 6 months now. I can feel the curls in my hair, but I’m more alarmed with the length of my hair in general.

    I just took out my braids that I had for 2 months and my hair was at shoulder length prior to braiding. Now, it’s definitely above shoulder length. Is this common? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Don’t worry too much about. It’s just that you’re relaxed ends are breaking off. The line where the relaxed ends meet the natural hair (the line of demarcation) is very fragile, and the strain of your hair being in braids probably caused a bit of breakage.

      What I would recommend is to deep condition your hair before and after you get your braids done and to remember to sleep with a silk or satin cap.

      Other than that, there will be some breakage, but you will be left with beautiful, natural hair in the end.

      You go girl!

  45. QUESTION:
    Does leaving my hair alone with all the harsh things allow your hair to grow to it’s full potential?
    What I mean by “leaving my hair alone” is to never trim or cut my hair. Never die my hair. Never use a heating iron on my hair. Never put my hair in tight ponytails, or tight braids. Never tug or pull my hair. And never wash, comb or brush my hair too much. I guess what I’m trying to ask is that if you left your hair to it’s natural state everyday, and never “disrupted” the natural growth pattern, will that help your hair grow to it’s full potential? I myself, am a girl, and I’m trying to grow my hair out long as possible. I’ve done alot of harm to my hair in the past, and certainly alot of cutting. 10 months ago I had recently got a bob cut, and now I’m dying to have my long hair back! So back to my question, if I leave my hair to it’s natural state, and not torment it so much with harsh chemicals, and heating irons, will it grow to it’s full potential? I mean other than that, I shampoo and condition my hair every second day to make it healthy and shiny, and I try to stay on a healthy diet to get my nutrients, and vitimans for healthy hair growth becuase my parents won’t let me take the vitimin suppliments in those pills. Not even those ‘flinstones’ vitimans. But I don’t get trims. Do you guys think because of all the things I’ve done to my hair in the past I should get a tiny trim? I’m too chicken too because I’m afraid if I do, my hair won’t be as long for when I go back too school. But anyways, tell me your answers, and don’t forget to answer my main question! Thankyou so much!

    • ANSWER:
      You can use Nioxin which makes a shampoo and conditioner that works for hair growth. But anyways, yeah leaving the hair alone will help it grow because you are retaining the length. But never trimming your hair isn’t good because that will cause the hair to be damaged and the split ends to go up the hair shaft. Not only does combing and brushing cause this, but shampooing (especially those with sulfates in it) and even the wind can damage hair. You have to trim your ends but not as often, you can trim from every 8 to 12 weeks at a time. Find a shampoo that is natural as well (Like JASONS).
      Here is the link to the Nioxin shampoo stuff.

  46. QUESTION:
    Does Cornbraids Help Your Hair Grow?!?!?
    I currently have corn braids in my hair (not with my own hair tho, its weave) i moisturize my braids daily with luster’s S-curl and then put some castor oil on the braids. How can i tell if my hair is growing through the cornbraids??

    • ANSWER:
      Cornbraids/rows are what is known as a protective style. You are using decent products on your hair and your sole concern should be keeping the hair moisturised and strong. Your hair will definitely be growing as it is not being combed and manipulated daily as it would if it were worn out. However, if you braid too tightly or don’t moisturise enough, it could get damaged. You sound like you have that taken care of though.

      If your hair is so wrapped in the weave that you cannot see any ends sticking out or fuzz of your real hair poking out then you will only know how much it has grown when you remove the weave. Next time measure your hair before going into the protective style then when it comes out, measure again to see how much length you have retained. All hair grows, even better in well cared for protective styles BUT you only retain that growth if it is well cared for. Well cared for and moisturised hair does not split or break as much and therefore length is retained.

  47. QUESTION:
    do weaves help your hair grow?
    so I am african american with natural, coarse hair. I have thick hair but it’s starting to thin out and become damaged from keeping it natural for so long. I’d really like to grow my hair considering the damage is now making it shorter. I really dislike braids, so I want to know if weaves can help your hair grow? I’ve heard they can but I dont know what kind of weave to get, and how to keep it up and all that. How do i maintain a weave? am I able to wash my hair? work out? swim even?

    Please only respond if you have experience or know someone personally who has dealt with weaves. much appreciated guys!

    • ANSWER:
      weaves don’t help your hair grow, but it’s possible that the braids for the weave can help your hair grow.

  48. QUESTION:
    Will keeping your hair in one hairstyle everyday make your hair grow faster?
    well i wanted to experiment by exercising eating fruit laying upside down everyday for 30 seconds and getting my hair trimmed and braiding my hair everyday before bed to see what happens. My question of them all is if i wear my hair in the same hair style everyday would it grow longer? My friend wears her hair in a braid everyday and her hair is long and she has cut a lot of times before and her hair is still longer. even tho shes mexican and im black and they tend to have a better hair texture i feel that what shes doing with her would actually work for meh too!

    • ANSWER:
      No. There is nothing you can do to make your hair grow faster. Even prenatal vitamins aren’t really effective. The best thing to do is keep it moisturized, nourished, and treat it very gently so that it doesn’t break.

  49. QUESTION:
    ADULTS HELP! how do you grow your hair (African people hair)?
    im African aka black, and my hair is at my shoulders but i want it to grow longer besides having it braided. the back doesnt grow that much or the sides. i dont wash my hair all the time, because its a hassle. but i want it to be long and silky and shinny like Caucasian people hair.
    i tie my hair up every night but some times it comes off my head, and i dont straighten my hair all the time, but i put moisturizers in it and i grease my scalp, and keep it in pony tails, some times let it down. but my hair is uneven. can you please help me (ps im only 13 so most of the stuffi need to approve with mum 1st)

    • 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!

  50. QUESTION:
    What can you do about about getting your hair to grow evenly on both sides?
    I am an African- American female that has hair a little past my shoulders. Right now I am growing it natural by braiding it and keeping the same style for one week then washing my hair. I am having trouble with my hair growing faster on the left side of my head than the right side. It seems like the left side has a healthier texture, more hair and different feel to it than the right side does. The left side does not feel the same. Does anyone else or has anyone else experienced this? I have been dealing with this for about a year. I just keep triming the left side to make it more even but should I be doing this? The right side seems to grow slower. I thought all of your hair should be the same since it is on the same head but this does not seem to be the case for me. My hair stylist says this is normal for some people and I just have to be patient while the other side catches up. Any ideas as to how to speed up the process and grow both sides evenly?

    • ANSWER:
      You clearly have a vitamin deficiency which causes uneevn growth..I know this because my sister suffered from this for a long time. Hers was very noticeable unfortunately. I dont know how bad yours is but you should def go to www.horizonshaircare.com She started off with a trim for even length, then started taking their hair vitamins. The growth rate was amazing and no longer had the uneven problem. Try that before you seek something else like a Dr. consult.


Grow Your Hair Longer Fast

The success and failure of Rogain has made this company the topic of many debates. Many individuals have success using the product and find it helpful in restoring their confidence. The best part about the product is that it does not require a doctor’s prescription like Propecia and is available at any pharmacy. The secret ingredient behind the products’ success is Minoxidil, which has proven useful for both men and women to assist in re-growing hair. The downside of using Rogain is that you have to purchase the product forever, which can cost over $50 per month for the rest of your life. If you stop purchasing Rogain, the hair you gained will begin falling out.

The side effects of Rogain are scalp burning, stinging or redness when applied to the skin. Long term use of the product can lead to severe headaches, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, change in heart rate or blood pressure, chest pain, swelling of hands or feet, and fatigue. The side effects of Rogain should not be taken lightly because the majority of Rogain customers have reported experiencing at least one of the product’s side effects.

Due to these side effects, many people who are seeking to grow their thinning hair have switched to alternative herbs and natural products. Based on a study of 150 middle-aged men and women in the United Kingdom, Beauty 4 Ashes Christian Co.’s Super Gro System was an instant winner concerning long-term health and hair growth results. Their A Double Portion Super Gro System, contains the herb Saw Palmetto, which has the same benefits of Propecia without the side effects. The products in Beauty 4 Ashes’ Super Gro System include a shampoo, conditioner, scalp gel, super hair gro B-Vitamin mist, and more. All of the system’s products contain either Saw Palmetto, Rosemary, or Castor Oil, which lowers the levels of DHT in the body by Blocking 5 alpha-reductase. In addition, Beauty 4 Ashes Super Gro Systems products contain Fenugreek and Amla Oil, which are anicient herbal remedies that block DHT and its receptor sites on cell membranes required for cells to absorb DHT. You can find more about their products online at wwwdiscoverb4acom

Rogain can help, but if your hair loss is due to stress, pregnancy, and non-genetic causes definitely seek out an all-natural alternative first, such as Beauty 4 Ashes A Double Portion a, hair growth products.

    How to make your hair grow longer faster; Guaranteed?
    I had gotten a hair cut recently and asked for a hair cut around or just a bit longer than my shoulders however the hairdresser cut it about the length of a bob cut and i hate it so i want my hair to grow long fast. I was wondering if anyone knew any ways how to make your hair grow longer faster but that isn’t too expensive. Also if anyone knows does the sunsilk longer and stronger shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      It takes a huge commitment to grow your mane amazing lengths. But it can be done! Below, are the top 10 tips to achieving length in the least amount of time.

      1. You need to start off with the health of your hair. So, go to a place like Super Cuts and get a good trim of about ½ inch at least. Now you’re ready for maximum growth.

      2. Wear protective styles every single day. No exception. This means French rolls, buns or other types of updos where your hair ends are not exposed to the air.

      3. Eliminate any and all types of heat. Put away the curling iron. Hide the flat iron. Put the blow dryer in the back of the closet. They will not help you reach your goal.

      4. Keep your ends moisturized. On a daily basis, add moisture to your ends in terms of a lotion moisturizer, oil like jojoba or a leave-in conditioner.

      5. Keep your tresses super conditioned by using a moisturizing conditioner bi-weekly and a protein conditioner once a month to keep your hair nice and strong.

      6. Treat your hair like super fine lace! Be gentle and take your time when combing, detangling, and styling.

      7. Do not play in your hair. Style it for the day and leave it alone. Constantly fussing with it will only make it dry which leads to split ends.

      8. Wear a protective satin or silk scarf when you go to bed at night. If you don’t do either of those, then sleep on a satin pillowcase. These will keep you from getting tangles and dryness.

      9. Make sure you’re getting all of the proper nutrition by eating lots of vegetables and getting protein. Take a multi-vitamin to make sure you’re getting all of the vitamins you need.

      10. Use moisturizing products only. Learn about the ingredients in shampoos and stay away from harsh shampoos. Try brands by Neutrogena, Nexxus, Keracare.

      If you’re serious about growing long hair fast, I hope these tips will be a reference guide for how you can do it. Remember, it takes a commitment and is not something that can happen overnight. You must commit to taking better care of your hair for a long time and not give up because you don’t see results as quickly as you’d like. Stick with it and I can guarantee you’ll see results!

    i want my hair to grow longer by august, how can it grow faster? i have blonde hair that is straight

    • ANSWER:
      Hair won’t grow any faster than it will grow. To keep it healthly and help it grow – don’t cut it, get a 1/4″ trim every 6 weeks – this will keep the ends from breaking.

      To be honest, it probably won’t grow that much by August – so just get extensions

If anyone knows if this is true please let me know and if you know ways of making hair grow longer fast please let me know. Thank you.

    • ANSWER:
      Any nutritional deficiencies can slow hair growth or stop your hair from growing. Your hair ultimately reflects the overall condition of your body.

      If your body is healthy and well-nourished, your hair will be your shining glory. If you are having any health problems or suffering from any nutritional deficiencies, your hair may stop growing or show damage or become brittle. If your body is in good health, 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 important to hair growth because beta-carotene 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!

    hi.. i just got 10 inches cut off of my hair due to locks of love. i couldnt resist thinking about those poor cancer kids. soon after they cut it, i realized i look horrible with short hair. i need it to grow at least three inches by my birthday in june. help me!

    • ANSWER:
      First, your hair is dead so it needs to rest. If you get a good amount of sleep each day your hair will grow more.
      Second, Maximizing you Growth Cycle. If you get the right amount of vitamins you need each day then you have a better chance of your hair growing longer.
      Third, Protein is Important. Since hair is protein, a diet that is too low in protein may cause some thinning in hair or a reduction in the growth cycle. So eat plenty of protein to get strong healthy and long hair.

    • ANSWER:
      1. A good diet and exercise program will benefit your hair

      2. A generous intake of water and plenty of rest.

      3. A vitamin and mineral supplement can also benefit your hair.

      In addition to these basic health steps, you can help the inner growth of your hair in other ways. Each of the following secrets may help make your hair grow faster.

      Scalp Massages May Help Make Hair Grow Faster

      You can help stimulate the circulation of the scalp and ensure good health of your hair through massaging your scalp with your fingers. This helps the hair root receive its nutrients and drives away wastes which cause hair cells to grow slowly and even die.

      To do: A scalp massage should be performed at least once a day, if not more. It is good to do it just before shampooing your hair. Simply rub the pads of your fingers about your head, in a fashion that feels good. Your scalp should feel like it is tingling. Do this for about 2 to 3 minutes. Even if this doesn’t make your hair grow faster, it feels divine!

      Special Recipe for Your Hair

      If you whip up this special recipe once a week, your hair will get enough nutrients to be the shiniest, healthiest hair on your block! It’s a delicious way to help your hair grow faster!

      Fruity-Tootie Milkshake for Healthy Hair:

      1 cup fat-free yogurt
      2 cups skim milk
      1 small banana
      2 tsp brewer’s yeast
      1 tsp wheat germ
      1 medium papaya or mango, sliced
      ½ tsp. cinnamon
      1 tsp vanilla essence
      1 tsp molasses
      Process in blender for 3 minutes. Drink slowly.
      The papaya or mango contains vitamin A, which combats dandruff and adds shine. The bananas, brewer’s yeast, yogurt, and molasses help the hair maintain a rich color, and the proper pH-balance. The wheat germ promotes growth, so it will help your hair grow faster, and the calcium in the milk strengthens the hair!

      Foods for Healthy Hair

      Fill your plate with plenty of spinach, raisins, and beans . These iron-rich foods stimulate the circulation of your scalp, which may help your hair grow faster.

      Exercise is Good for Your Hair Too!

      You know how invaluable exercise is to your heart and lungs. It improves your circulation and reduces stress which contributes to healthy hair and thus may help make hair grow faster.

      A Balanced Diet Can Help Make Hair Grow Faster.

      A balanced diet is a must for everyone, especially someone who is interested in growing their hair longer. You must include the proper portions of all the food groups in your daily intake in order to get the proper nutrients, including proteins and fatty acids, which are important to the health of your hair. Only healthy hair will grow.

      Ways to Prevent Damage to Your Hair and Maybe Make Hair Grow Faster:

      Never over-dry your hair. If possible, always use the lowest possible setting on your blow dryer.
      Use a thermal protector on your hair whether you’re blow drying or using a flat iron.
      Instead of using a brush on wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb to prevent the hair from splitting.
      If your hair tangles easily you may also want to use a detangler.
      Keep your head out of the sun. That’s not only good advice for your hair, but great advice for your face! If this is not possible be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and a conditioner with UV protection on your hair.
      Cut your hair to make hair grow. A trim 3 or 4 times per year will even out any new growth and make your hair appear fuller It will also relieve the hair of many split ends which will otherwise result in broken hair shafts which cause the hair to look frizzy.

      If you just have to have long hair now and don’t have the patience to wait for you hair to grow, you may want to do what Paris Hilton and many other celebrities do and consider hair extensions. Real or not, either way, you too can be the owner of a Rapunzel-esque mane sooner than you think!

      You can also get tips to Make Your Hair Grow Faster from your doctor.

  30. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to make your hair longer fast?
    What is the best way to make your hair grow longer faster, and yet keeping it healthy? My hair is about should shoulder length, dark brown, I dye it red. It gets curly when wet, but dry it’s straight. Also, thin and soft. Please help, thank you ^ ^

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing you do is going to make your hair grow faster. That’s not me being mean, it’s just the truth. Your hair has grown at the same rate it has since you were born and will continue to do so until you die. Pills/vitamins can strengthen the regrowth and make it healthier, thus giving it the appearance it’s growing faster. Eating healthier makes your regrowth healthier, but that should be a given. No products, shampoos and conditioners, will make it grow. Not even Mane N Tail, it’s just a shampoo and conditioner and it only treats the outside. Trims are a myth at making hair grow. Trims cut the ends and hair grows from the root, or from your head. Sure, trims make the hair look nicer by ridding the head of split ends but that’s about all.
      I’ve tried everything and nothing has made my hair grow faster. Just be patient and take a multi vitamin to make your hair healthier.

  31. QUESTION:
    How do I make my hair grow longer and fast? Please Help me I will anwer your questions in return! Thankyou?
    Hi,
    Today I went to the hairdresser with Hair maybe half an inch past my shoulder. I told him to cut off like an inch or 2. I leave the hairdresser wih my hair about 2 inches passed my earlobe, or an inch and a half above my shoulder. All I want is my hair to grow like 3-4 Inches. I used to have split ends but they are cut off now Probably since he chopped off likle half of my hair! I really need my hair to grow longer and fast. My plan so far is –>
    No more straightening or curling irons or hairdryers for about a month
    Every day take a shower and shampoo and condition hair, while conditioning massage scalp
    After showers put Loreal Intensive Repair and massage in hair then rinse out
    At night put Pure Aloe Avera Jell in hair OR Coconut Oil or Sesame Oil.
    Take 2 Omega fish fatty oil gels each day
    Take 2 multivitamins each day
    Ecxercise and stretch daily

    Is this a good plan? I’m 14 years old so is this too much or too little? I really want my hair to grow faster and I know it requires patients but I am willing to get like 9 hours of sleep every night and I will do all of this. And I’m thinking about cutting out the Loreal Intnesive repair because I am thinking it will not do so much or there is too many chemicals? Can somebody please give me some advice? I have dark brown hazelnut hair. I really really really need my hair longer, Please help me I will answer your questions back in exchange. Thankyou :)

    • ANSWER:
      To make it grow faster I flip my hair upside down with your head to the floor and brush my hair that way because the blood goes to your head and stimulates your scalp. Also put conditioner this way because it’s a small pull while not hurting your hair. You don’t want to wash your hair every day, it strips your hair of its natural oils that help your hair grow. Washing your hair every other day to every three to four days. Massaging your head will also stimulate your scalp. Also eating healthy will make your hair healthier, exercising will also get your blood flowing and stimulate your scalp. Also putting your hair in a braid at least once a week or so, the little bit of pulling is just enough to make it grow but not to hurt your hair’s health.

      I do all this and my hair grows about 2 inches every few weeks, hope I helped :)

      Eat high-quality protein foods. Eggs are a good source as long as you don’t have cholesterol problems.
      Eat grains, legumes, nuts and seeds.
      Make sure your diet is composed of 50 percent fresh fruits and vegetables.
      Add sulfur- and silicon-rich foods to diet. Onions, broccoli, fish and sea vegetables are all good sources.
      Eat food rich in biotin, such as brewer’s yeast, brown rice and soybeans.
      Sprinkle ground flaxseed on your cereal. It provides essential fatty acids.
      Eat foods high in B vitamins.

      Use hot oil treatments every other week and don’t wash your hair everyday then you will be washing away the natural oils in your hair. Speaking of oils use oils like jojoba oil, olive oil, and many others and massage them on your scalp. But be careful and test the oil on a your skin before putting it on your scalp. If it turns red and starts irritating you do not use it.

      Lavender oil – It is a popular oil for hair growth. It has been proved that application of
      lavender oil on regular basis has a significant effect on the growth of hair.

      Jojoba oil – This hair oil can be used if your hair type is dry. Jajoba oil will help to moisturize your dry hair when applied on regular basis. It can also be used before shampooing your hair to get a tangle free soft hair.

      Olive oil – Olive oil when applied on regular basis helps to strengthen your hair and improve the hair quality. This is because it helps to reduce the stress and also provide elasticity to your hair.

      Castor oil – Commonly used for hair growth. However this oil is very sticky so it can also be used in combination with other hair oils like coconut oil or almond oil for best results.

      Coconut oil – Coconut oil is commonly used for dry and damaged hair as it provides appropriate lubricant. The different nutrients in coconut oil like calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium provide good nourishment for the hair.

      Rosemary herbal oil – This oil is commonly used for flaky unwanted dandruff on the scalp.

      Almond oil – Almond oil helps to repair and strengthen your hair.

      Also tie you hair up at night to protect it from all the twisting and turning are body does when we are asleep.

      Make sure you trim any split ends this will not help your hair growth but will make your hair look presentable.

      Also do not brush your hair to hard it will make more hair fall out.

      Massage your scalp with your fingertips (not your nails) daily to stimulate and promote circulation to your scalp and reduce excess fallout. Invert your head while you shampoo & massage your scalp. This helps promote blood circulation to the head..

      here are some remedies you can do.

      herbs for hair growth:
      Aloe
      Arnica
      Birch
      Burdock
      Catmint
      Chamomile
      Horsetail
      Licorice
      Marigold
      Nettles
      Parsley
      Rosemary
      Sage
      Southernwood
      Stinging nettle
      Ylang ylang( also it is a little bit expensive, but beauty comes at a price than and pain equal beauty) haha : )

      -Mix rosemary with cleansing shampoo and apply in your hair. It works as a good anti-dandruff treatment.

      -Massage the oil of arnica, marigold, rosemary and southernwood into the scalp. It is very useful in hair loss.

      -Make an aloe vera shampoo. When combined with wheat germ oil and coconut milk, aloe vera gel makes a shampoo to promote hair growth. Use the shampoo as often as you wash your hair.

      -Use aloe vera gel to treat the areas of the scalp that are going bald. Aloe vera contains an enzyme that helps promote new hair growth for some people. The gel can be applied directly to the scalp, as aloe vera typically has no side effects.

      1.Drinking plenty of water and eating plenty of raw fruits and vegetables is probably the best way to achieving healthy hair.

      2.Vitamins B, C, F, zinc, iron, copper and protein are essential for hair growth.

      3. Brush your hair gently with preferably wooden brushes to increase hair growth.

      4.Boil 1 cup of celery leaves with stems, strain and add juice of 1 lemeon juice

      Good Luck : )

    I cut mine exactly a year ago and its only grown like two inches.

    I was wondering if there are any remedies to grow hair faster.

    • ANSWER:
      i cut my hair really short and decided i wanted it long again. i researched into this and found many different ‘make your hair grow faster’ shampoos and conditioners, along with herbal pills but i also found many articles telling me that these things do not work. if you have the means and money to get them then try websites such as holland and barratts or amazon (as this is where i found hair growing things).

      hope this helps

    • ANSWER:
      NIOXIN
      its not cheap (but not insanely priced either)
      it has mint in it i believe which stimulates your scalp and helps your hair grow faster. generally people with thin/thinning hair use it to get the scalp to produce more hair faster. it should work for your situation too.
      also you can take OTC pre natals which will stimulate hair growth too

      Foods for Healthy Hair – the website had moved.

      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.

      Sources:
      I know hair. I have silky, shiny, soft, smooth very healthy very long hair. 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.
      I buy the cheapest shampoo on sale, like Garnier for Normal Hair.

  44. QUESTION:
    is it true that Pre Natal vitamins will make your hair grow longer faster?
    I heard a rumor that the DHA in Pre-Natal vitamins makes hair grow faster. I really want long gorgeous hair asap, what can I do to stimulate growth? I take good care of it and get all my split ends trimmed, so please don’t give me that as advice.

    • ANSWER:
      You can stimulate the growth, by massaging your hair when you shampoo.
      If you want to keep your hair LONGER, you’re cutting all the good hair as well, if you go to the salon to have them done. Spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day so you can spot your split ends, sometimes they are in the middle of a strand. Using a 2″ scissors, cut each strand by strand, section by section, before you know it you will only have 1% split ends. Then 2x a year get them cut at a salon. I cut mine 1″ a month, 4″ 2x a year. Since 2003, they’re now down to my knees.

      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.

  46. QUESTION:
    How do you make your hair grow longer faster?
    I read an article in a magazine on how to make your hair longer faster but I lost the magazine. I want to make my hair longer for Locks of Love and donate as soon as possible. Any tips???

    • ANSWER:
      When you wash your hair, try not to use shampoos that contain Laureth Sulfates, as these dry out the hair completely and make you more prone to get split ends etc. Use any blow dryers, straighteners, hairs curlers etc to a minimum, if not at all. High heat can damage hair, and hair thats damaged doesn’t tend to grow much if not at all.
      Also Make sure you’re getting it trimmed often, so that any dead or split ends you do have are cut off and allow your hair to grow better
      Don’t brush it more often!! this only makes to hair weaker and more likely to break. If anything keep the brushing to a minimum.
      It can be hard to find hair shampoos that don’t have Laureth Sulphate in them, so here’s a link to one without http://www.wenhaircare.com/
      I hope that helps

    • ANSWER:
      Well for one try using Mane N’ Tail Horse Shampoo. I use it all the time and it makes your hair grow faster. You can find it at walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should use cold or
      luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it. Even hot water hurts your hair.

    I have short curly hair that I used to straighten but decided not to in the long run. But now I wish I had long hair once more.

    How can I get my hair to grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      1- take a good vitamin, not just a month from now on, everybody should!
      2- a small trim every 8 weeks (small trim) reduces breakage.
      3- be gentle, back off heat appliances, a big tooth comb to detangle, shampoo & conditioners for damaged hair are the most gentle.
      4- when shampooing give yourself a good scalp massage which increases circulation to the scalp where the hair follicles are.

Grow Your Hair Longer

Wigs have become popular once again. They are so easy to use if you’re looking for a quick and easy hair style. And because they come in some many different styles, there’s sure to be something out there for everyone.

Proper wig maintenance will improve your wig’s appearance and longevity. And wig maintenance is not very expensive; it just requires a little bit of time and effort. Here are some important steps to follow.

1) Wig maintenance begins with detangling. First, gently brush out your wig to remove any tangles (unless the wig is extremely curly and/or it came with a tag telling you that it shouldn’t be brushed). Most of the longer styles will become quite matted towards the back, and it may be necessary to separate the tangled strands gently with your fingers. Apply Simply Stylin’ Light Silk Spray to aid in brushing and easy removal of any tangles. Because it’s made of pure silicone, Simply Stylin’ is perfect for aiding in wig maintenance without drying the hair.

If you have a synthetic hair wig, it is important to use combs and brushes that are designed for use on synthetic wigs. If you are using a regular hairbrush or comb, be sure it has the rubber tips at the end of each brush bristle or tooth of the comb. This will prevent the fibers from splitting, and keep the wig from looking fuzzy and dull before its time.
2) Shampooing your wig correctly is also an important part of proper wig maintenance. When the wig is ready to be washed, fill the sink with about 2 quarts of cool water. Never use hot water, as this could relax the curl that was set into the wig during the manufacturing process. Pour about 2 capfuls of a gentle shampoo into the water and then submerge the wig. When the wig is fully wet, swish it around for about a minute and then let soak for about another minute.

3) Remove the wig and rinse in cold water until no suds remain. Then place the wig on a bath towel to completely dry overnight. It is all right to blot the wig with a towel, but don’t twist the wig or ring it out. You can use your fingers to gently separate and arrange the strands as the wig is drying, but don’t try to comb or brush the wig while still wet. The fibers could be stretched to the breaking point.

4) After the wig is dry, spray lightly with Simply Stylin’ Light Silk Spray to restore the shine and luster and aid in manageability.

5) While re-curling a wig is possible, it can be very time-consuming if it is a very curly style. Here’s how you do it.

First, dampen your wig just a bit with cool water. Then set the hair in the rollers. After rolling the hair, run HOT water all over it until it is fully saturated. Then gently squeeze each roller to remove excess water. Let the wig dry completely before removing the rollers. If you have a folding wig stand, this will speed up drying time.

Once completely dry, carefully take out the rollers and you should have a nicely re-curled wig. Please be aware the hot water actually will take the curl completely out of a wig unless the rollers are in place, as it acts as a relaxer (kind of like a perm) which softens the fibers to the point that they take on the new shape of the roller.

One word of warning: don’t ever use any type of electric styling appliance on your synthetic fiber wig, thinking that this will be quicker than the method described above. Even on the coolest settings, a blow dryer, hot rollers, and curling irons will frizz the fibers, and may even melt them, therefore ruining the wig.

6) Mist your wig with Simply Stylin’ Light Silk Spray regularly to keep it looking new and fresh. You’ll find your periodic wig maintenance so much easier if you follow this important last step.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How does getting your hair trimmed every couple months help for your hair to grow longer?
    I was told to get my hair trimmed every 2 months to get my rid of my split ends. How does doing this let you grow your hair longer? I am trying to grow out my hair and wouldn’t getting it trimmed every 2 months keep it at the same length?

    • ANSWER:
      The person above me doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Shaving doesn’t make hair grow back thicker and faster, and cutting your hair doesn’t make hair grow back thicker. When you have split ends, The split will continue up the hair strand, and eventually break off. It stops hair from growing, so when you get them cut off, It makes your hair grow better, which is where the whole cutting your hair makes it grow faster comes in.

    How do you grow your hair longer if your on a swim team?
    Im on a swim team until november and i want to grow out long but i know what chlorine ruins your hair. How can i make my hair longer?

    • ANSWER:
      Hey! So here is what I have been doing and been seeing results.(not dramatic but okay).

      1. Sleep on the bed with your head hanging off and let the blood go to your head. This circulates the flow for hair growth. (do it from 5-10 minutes in the morning and night)

      2. Take up yoga, relax your head. When you are calm it tends to promote hair growth.

      3. Drink plenty of water, and also make sure you workout, sweat is good for you head to get circulation.

      4. If you want, go to Wal-Mart and buy “Hair Skin & Nails” its like or less. This contains the right amount of nutrients you need for your hair.

      5. I did this for about 2 weeks and got some results, rub your fingernails together, brush them back and forth and make sure your thumb is under your four fingers when doing it. (a technique used in Yoga for hair loss/ promotion of hair growth.

      6. Wash your hair with tea tree oil shampoo(you can buy it from Sally Hanson) It wakes up your hair follicle.

      7. Also, you can apply Lavender, Rosemary, Extra Virgin Olive, coconut, or Jojoba Oil to scalp while doing a head massage. This give nutrients from the pores and also keeps hair condition. :)

      I am going through the same thing, I CHOPPED all my hair off and from doing all the above, I have got about 1 to 1 & 1/2 inch of hair each month, and my hair was above my shoulder in January and now it is under my collar bone, which is about 4 to 5 inches. :) And be patient, when you start noticing your hair growing, you will be extremely happy.
      :) :) :)

    How to grow your hair longer if you straighten it almost everyday?
    I’m a 15 year old girl with short wavy hair and I want it to grow longer, I straighten my hair almost everyday because of I don’t then my hair will look really bad

    • ANSWER:
      Well hair grows 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 wateron 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.

      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.

  14. QUESTION:
    Can you use pre natal vitamins to grow your hair longer and thicker even though your not pregnant ???
    iam 20 yrs old and i feel like my hair is very weak and i would also like to grow it longer … and i heard your hair and nails grow longer and thicker while taking pre natal vitamans … or does that only apply to pregnant women ???

    • ANSWER:
      A complete multivitamin is good for you to take everyday ANYWAY. Women have different outcomes with pregnancy-and I think that is more due to hormones. With my daughter, my hair was nice and thick, my face was practically pimple free-I had the glow. With my son, I didn’t get that glow until I was about 6 months pregnant, and my hair was thinner on top and I started sprouting a few extra hairs on my chin! I took my vitamins faithfully throughout.
      Talk to your doctor about your concerns about your hair. It may be a vitamin deficiency, or it may just be a matter of what shampoo you use.
      But taking a good multi-vitamin is not a bad idea.(Take it at the end of the day on a full stomach.)

    Thanks ;)

    • ANSWER:
      To grow your hair longer, stop using anything besides shampoo and conditioner.

      Stop using hairspray, heating irons and such.

      Try Burt’s and Bee’s shampoo and conditioner. It is mostly natural. The brand’s that you mentioned are full of chemicals and sulfates.

      This will not make your hair grow, but it will prevent the hair that you have from getting damaged. If it gets damaged, you will eventually have to get it cut off.

      The best ways would be to not wash your hair that often. That promotes growth, and it allows you hair’s natural oil to stimulate the hair.

      You could also oil your hair for about 30min, and then rinse. That also promotes hair growth (:

      Good Luck (:

  20. QUESTION:
    How can you grow your hair longer?
    How can you grow your hair longer and quicker without damaging it?
    any sort of ways you can do it?

    • ANSWER:
      These are some general tips that will certainly help. But to a great extent, it depends on your hereditary tendencies and health.
      1. Treat the hair gently and carefully.
      2. Let the hair be comfortable and free. If it is necessary to tie. do it gently.
      3. Never apply harsh chemicals, since any damage is irreversible.
      4. Paste made of gram flour is an excellent protein mask for both skin and hair. Invent which hair mask suits you the best.
      5. Use mild anti-dandruff shampoo whenever you wash to keep your hair n scalp clean.
      6. Take oil massage weekly with any oil that suits you. Coconut oil is simply the best. Also some ayurvedic oils give a coolness for eyes and head.
      7. Eat food rich in protein. Eating ground nuts, cashew nuts, badaam etc regularly are good.
      8. Have a complete nutritious diet and do not skip meals ever.
      9. Make sure to get good sleep.
      10. Drink plenty of water.
      11. Evade tension away from your life. Tension/Stress is a terrible killer of beautiful tresses.
      12. Include fruits and vegetables regularly in your food.
      13. Comb the hair regularly with a soft comb that won’t damage hair and scalp.
      14. Hair grows about half an inch per month. Humidity increases hair growth, hence washing hair daily and softly drying it with a towel will be ideal than a hair dryer, perhaps hairdryers can be saved for urgent moments. Beware of the fungus that will attack if wet hair is tied tight. Best to leave it loose.
      15. If necessary have a biotin capsule to make hair grow rich. Find if there is any vitamin deficiency or anemia and take substitutes after consulting a doctor.

      Wish you a beautiful hair!

  24. QUESTION:
    Is it true that your hair grows longer and faster when pregnant?…How long did yours grow?
    With my two pregnancies I noticed that my hair grew beautifully and longer!
    I’m 14 weeks pregnant now and still wonder if that is true or false…Is it?
    How long did your hair grow with your pregnancy?
    Thanks…;)

    • ANSWER:
      it is true due to both prenatal vitamins and hormones. My hair is growing sooo fast but it originally was very thick and now it falls out pretty fast. not like i’m going bald or anything just it’s thinned a bit down to what would be considered “normal thickness”. sucks for our poor shower drain! this happens to alot of women (thick hair gets thinner, thin hair gets thicker) also some women experience a change in hair texture (straight hair gets wavy or curly, curly hair gets straighter) and some even experience changes in hair color (may get lighter or darker)

    How do you make your hair grow longer faster?
    I read an article in a magazine on how to make your hair longer faster but I lost the magazine. I want to make my hair longer for Locks of Love and donate as soon as possible. Any tips???

    • ANSWER:
      When you wash your hair, try not to use shampoos that contain Laureth Sulfates, as these dry out the hair completely and make you more prone to get split ends etc. Use any blow dryers, straighteners, hairs curlers etc to a minimum, if not at all. High heat can damage hair, and hair thats damaged doesn’t tend to grow much if not at all.
      Also Make sure you’re getting it trimmed often, so that any dead or split ends you do have are cut off and allow your hair to grow better
      Don’t brush it more often!! this only makes to hair weaker and more likely to break. If anything keep the brushing to a minimum.
      It can be hard to find hair shampoos that don’t have Laureth Sulphate in them, so here’s a link to one without http://www.wenhaircare.com/
      I hope that helps

  27. QUESTION:
    How Do You Grow Your Hair Longer, Naturally? How Do You Easily Remove Knots?
    Okay, I’m trying to grow my hair up to my waist, maybe lower. But I want to do it quickly and naturally, without using extensions, though. Also, how do you easily remove knots, without using too much conditioner because that makes your hair greasier? And if I have my hair longer, how do I brush my hair without hurting my arm? I would appreciate it if you answered. Thanks.

    Love, YourAngelicVampyre

    • ANSWER:
      Question 1. How do you grow your hair longer, naturally?: Hmm…eat plenty of vitamins, or ask your hairstylist what vitamins will make your hair grow. Shower daily and TRIM your hair at least once every 1-3 months so your hair won’t be all nasty. And take your time. Do not do anything to it like dyeing it or anything because this will ruin it. Hon, I don’t think you can do it ‘quickly’. It takes time. Right now you want it to grow quickly, but once it’s done, you will be so happy for your long hair! Mine comes down to my bottom and it took me 10 years! Give it time, it will grow.

      Question 2. How do you easily remove knots?: Oh, removing knots? Buy some SLEEK shampoo and conditioner. Also, use very little conditioner because you are right, it can make your hair greasier. Plus, do not use many hair products or things like that like straighteners, curling irons, hairspray, shine spray, and more because it will damage your hair. Take a sharper brush and brush through the knots gently. Plus, shower daily.

      Question 3. How do you brush your hair without hurting your arm?: Brush slowly and very gently. Don’t yank it through harshly.

  28. QUESTION:
    How to grow your hair longer, and really fast (if there’s a way)?
    So I heard brushing your hair a lot helps, and not to condition it and shampoo it daily, but I really need tips to grow out my hair. My hair is below the neck in the back, and in the front its about 2″ longer than shoulder length, but I want to grow it to my butt or a little longer. Please help!!!!!!

    Thank you!
    Oh and I heard eating healthy will help… please give me more tips!

    Thank you again!

    Unless you’re the people who comment saying stuff like “THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE” or something

    • ANSWER:
      The most effective way to get your hair to grow is to focus on nutrition (through diet, or supplements). Protein and healthy fats are very important. You can also improve your hair growth with supplements like biotin, pantothenic acid, Inositol, and MSM. I like Caribbean Hair Grow. Talk to your doctor before you take anything.

  31. QUESTION:
    Can you use Vitamin D tablets to make your hair grow longer?
    Because i know that sun makes your hair longer, which is vitamin D. So if i take the tablets will it be ok?

    • ANSWER:
      I think it is Vitamin A that promotes healthy skin, hair and nails, but any nutritional deficiency will affect your hair. It shouldn’t hurt to take a good multivitamin every day as few people eat as they really should these days. Don’t overdo it as some vitamins can be toxic in high amounts.

      Your hair is only going to grow about a half inch per month, but if you keep it strong and healthy, it will split and break less and seem to grow faster. Avoid perms, hair coloring, curling or straightening irons, and over drying with a hair blower if you really want your hair to be healthy as they are the things most likely to damage it.

  32. QUESTION:
    What products make your hair grow longer?

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

    How can you make your hair grow longer and faster?
    Is there anyway to make your hair grow longer faster? I have think hair. I get perms a lot(not the curly ones. the perms that straighten your hair)

    I also get twisties in my hair occasionally. Do twists help your hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      the rate ur hair grows is pretty much in ur DNA and you can’t change it

      but chemical straighting will stunt ur hair growth as i weakens it so much and causes it to break

      multivitamins will help your hair grow more healthy
      you can get ones designed for hair skin and nails

      and getting regular cuts every 4 to six weeks will cut off split ends
      these make ur hair weak and snap off
      and over time the split will spread up the hair shalf
      and as your hair growns it spilts more

      an invest in a good condioner and shampoo too

      hope this helps!

      wash your hair every other day, or even once a week! that would be better!
      eat healthier!
      don’t eat any junk food!
      get rid of the chips, soda, ice cream and whatever else you have!
      eat lean meat, and vegetables.
      take vitamins if you can.
      biotin and niacin are the best. (or so i’ve heard)
      exercise.
      drink lots and LOTS of water.
      get a better shampoo and conditioner. (i use pantene)
      theres more than likely alot of other ways to help.

  43. QUESTION:
    how to make your hair grow alot longer in a short amount of time?
    I need my hair to grow really long , in a short amount of time . I dont want to get extensions or anything just how do you make your hair grow longer . And also i want it to be healthy and not dried out . People Tell me to use Horse Shampoo but i am scared that it will dry out my hair ?

    • ANSWER:
      If you want your hair to be healthier, then you need to consume a lot of protein and omega fatty acids (fish is best!)
      As far as making it grow faster, I don’t think there is a way without spending a ridiculous amount of money. Just get your hair trimmed often, stay away from dying it, and brush and wash a lot.

      Also I use the “mane and tail” horse shampoo and as long as you use a decent conditioner and use a little more on the ends you should be fine :)

  44. QUESTION:
    How to make your hair grow longer faster; Guaranteed?
    I had gotten a hair cut recently and asked for a hair cut around or just a bit longer than my shoulders however the hairdresser cut it about the length of a bob cut and i hate it so i want my hair to grow long fast. I was wondering if anyone knew any ways how to make your hair grow longer faster but that isn’t too expensive. Also if anyone knows does the sunsilk longer and stronger shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      It takes a huge commitment to grow your mane amazing lengths. But it can be done! Below, are the top 10 tips to achieving length in the least amount of time.

      1. You need to start off with the health of your hair. So, go to a place like Super Cuts and get a good trim of about ½ inch at least. Now you’re ready for maximum growth.

      2. Wear protective styles every single day. No exception. This means French rolls, buns or other types of updos where your hair ends are not exposed to the air.

      3. Eliminate any and all types of heat. Put away the curling iron. Hide the flat iron. Put the blow dryer in the back of the closet. They will not help you reach your goal.

      4. Keep your ends moisturized. On a daily basis, add moisture to your ends in terms of a lotion moisturizer, oil like jojoba or a leave-in conditioner.

      5. Keep your tresses super conditioned by using a moisturizing conditioner bi-weekly and a protein conditioner once a month to keep your hair nice and strong.

      6. Treat your hair like super fine lace! Be gentle and take your time when combing, detangling, and styling.

      7. Do not play in your hair. Style it for the day and leave it alone. Constantly fussing with it will only make it dry which leads to split ends.

      8. Wear a protective satin or silk scarf when you go to bed at night. If you don’t do either of those, then sleep on a satin pillowcase. These will keep you from getting tangles and dryness.

      9. Make sure you’re getting all of the proper nutrition by eating lots of vegetables and getting protein. Take a multi-vitamin to make sure you’re getting all of the vitamins you need.

      10. Use moisturizing products only. Learn about the ingredients in shampoos and stay away from harsh shampoos. Try brands by Neutrogena, Nexxus, Keracare.

      If you’re serious about growing long hair fast, I hope these tips will be a reference guide for how you can do it. Remember, it takes a commitment and is not something that can happen overnight. You must commit to taking better care of your hair for a long time and not give up because you don’t see results as quickly as you’d like. Stick with it and I can guarantee you’ll see results!

    • ANSWER:
      i have the same problem too!!!!!!! well, just don’t worry about cuz there’s really nothing u can do about it. just let it naturally grow, before you know it it’ll be long. i actually did a little research about how i can make my hair grow longer, they say to eat more healthy stuff, don’t blow dry ur hair, and when u dry ur hair with a towel after when u washed ur hair don’t rub it cuz that will cause split ends. so instead you put ur hair in between the towel like a sandwhich then pat it to dry. oh, another thing is that when you washed ur hair don’t comb it, let it dry first so that way ur hair won’t streach, and one more thing, ur hair grows half an inch each month during the summer time and one fourth of an inch during winter. so u don’t have to worry. that’s all i know. so good luck. =]

  48. QUESTION:
    What helps your hair grow longer faster?
    What helps your hair grow longer faster? Is there any product I could buy at sally’s or something?

    • ANSWER:
      I have really long, thick hair, and it grows about 12 in. every two years, no lie. I wash my hair every other day. Pantene shampoo and conditioner works for me. Pert is less known but nice brand as well. Don’t condition everyday, only once a week.

      It’s really hard to achieve long hair quickly. things work differently for different people. The best thing to do is make sure your hair isn’t falling out as well. be gentle with you hair, brush it twice a day. If it tangles easily, brush the tangles out gently so you don’t pull out hair. minimize hair styling oo. Constant contact with extreme heat (curling irons, etc.) can kill your hair.

      Hope I helped! :)

  50. QUESTION:
    how do you grow your hair longer quicker?
    I am getting a new hairstyle but i have to grow my hair about 3 inches longer. Please Help.

    • ANSWER:
      You can try to eat healthier foods
      Make sure you eat proteins (meat, eggs, nuts) as these help with growth and repair
      Some say that cod liver oil and multi vitamins help
      Exercise regularly
      Head massages help to stimulate the hair follicles
      Try to limit the amount of heat styling you do
      It would usually take about 3-6 months for your hair to grow 3 inches as hair only grows about 1/2 – 1 inch a month
      Hope this helps (:


Grow Your Hair Long And Strong

Are you sick and tired of falling hair that no treatment is able to cure? This is a very common problem and affects over 85 million people in this country. Let’s find out why crown balding really happens and how to prevent it effectively.

Now, first off let’s eliminate two possibilities upfront. If you are having some hormonal changes in your body like that happens in a thyroid disorder, then the loss of hair may be a side effect of that. There is nothing wrong with your hair and you do not any treatment for your crown balding.

Even heavy medication can cause a degree of hair loss which should stop once the medication is over. Here also you do not need any help for your hair.

On the other hand, if you are predisposed for genetic baldness, then things become more serious.

In this condition, the hair follicles in your scalp shrink and stop producing new hair. This happens when the male hormone Androgen reacts with the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme and produces a substance known as DHT (Dihydrotestostrone).

This DHT latches on to the follicles and prevents them from accessing the blood supply. This causes them to shrink and they stop producing new hair.

This is what causes the crown balding and slowly leads to complete baldness.

There are a number of ways people try to combat this problem. Some opt for hair transplants, some start taking pills to stop the hair loss. The truth is, neither of them is the optimal solution for this problem.

Hair transplants are not only very expensive; they also do nothing to solve the root cause of the problem – the DHT in the blood. So you have to keep repeating the treatment again and again.

Taking pills may provide better results, but at a high cost – they can cause serious side effects like depression, infertility and low libido.

A much safer option is to use a 2% Minoxidil solution. This ingredient has tremendous anti DHT properties and reduces its levels in the blood.

This helps in reviving the hair follicles and they become capable of producing new hairs once again.

Just remember, crown balding doesn’t happen overnight – it’s a gradual process. Similarly, the hair will also take some time to grow. So be patient and give enough time to Minoxidil to work its magic on your hair.

So go ahead and try this amazing ingredient and stop your crown balding from spreading. For more information on how it works, visit my website now.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How can you make your hair grow long and strong?
    What is the vitamin that you can take to strengthen nails and hair?
    Is there any good shampoo and conditioners?
    And good products for your hair?

    I just cut three inches off my hair and i want it back by prom (May 26) but i want it strong and not frail.

    • ANSWER:
      I have REALLY long and thick hair so you could say that i’m a bit of an expert when it comes to hair :) i’ve been growing my hair since i was 12 and i’m 18 now. Mostly I use Dove..it seems to work the best. Sometimes i switch up with Pantene( both of these shampoos need to be 2 in 1 and the volume one). Make sure you trim your hair every month to get rid of split ends and keep it healthy. Drink a lot of milk. I wouldn’t recommend any products for your hair because most of them will damage your hair.

      For vitamins-take any multivitamin-viactiv or one-a-day are usually the best. (that’s what my doctor recommended) for nails-use the green tea nail strengthening nail polish…it works very well…

  2. QUESTION:
    how do you make your hair grow long, strong, and faster?
    my hair stops growing about 2 inches below my shoulder and it is so thin, it drives me nuts what should I do?

    • ANSWER:
      Nothing makes your hair grow faster. It’s simply not biologically possible. It may not stop growing at all, but breaking off hindering growth. Go get a good haircut.

      If that isn’t it, there are biological limits to hair growth. The length your hair grows at maximum is genetically predetermined, though I’ve never heard of anyone with such a short length. You might not have enough protein in your diet, either.

      As for the thinness; get your hair coloured. One of the purposes of haircolour is to add texture to thin hair.
      I hope this helps.

  3. QUESTION:
    what food product makes your hair grow strong long and thick?
    my friend keeps askin me so give details
    cause this girl is really gettin on my nerves.

    • ANSWER:
      If your body is in good health, 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 beta-carotene 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.
      Protein Is Important

      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.

      Some nutritional experts suggest the dietary utilization of calves liver, brewer’s yeast, wheat germ and a daily dose of two tablespoons of granulated lecithin to maximize hair growth, strength and beauty.

      Other 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.

  5. QUESTION:

  6. QUESTION:
    how to grow hair long and strong?
    I take care of my hair, I use pureology shampoo and conditioner, and I try to avoid damage such as flat irons and such.. but my hair seems so fragile still. I heard prenatal vitamins makes your hair grow long.. anyone have any advice on growing hair long and strong? …besides extensions.

    • ANSWER:
      If your hair is fragile, is it also pretty thin? If so, one thing that works well (although you probably don’t want to do this) is to get it cut short, then it will thicken out. Other than that, I would suggest taking vitamins such as B’s, selenium and primrose oil. Also don’t condition your roots, they can be clogged. Scalp stimulation (massages) can increase blood flow which helps growth. Be sure to get it trimmed regularily :)

  7. QUESTION:
    Hair oils that make your hair grow long fast?

  8. QUESTION:
    What products would you recommend to grow hair long & strong?
    I’m trying to grow my hair out a little longer so that I can donate it to Locks of Love (or something similar) and still be able to have (about) shoulder length hair after I cut it. I’m wondering what reasonably-priced products you would recommend for conditioning it and maintenance? I want to grow it out “long and strong” so that my hair will be usable and not just discarded. This is a BIG decision for me, since I’ve always had long hair…The ponytail measures almost 15 inches right now! (I know donation length is 8-10 inches, minimum, but I want to have longer hair left after.)
    Thanks in advance for your help! :)

    • ANSWER:
      The best thing to help your hair’s strength is to just keep regular haircuts every couple of months. By cutting off your split ends it will ensure that the splits won’t run up the hair shaft. Also, avoid hair coloring. The more you color your hair the less strength it will have especially if your chosen hair color is a blonde. As for products I like to use Paul Mitchell’s Strengthing Shampoo and Conditioner set it will help add keratin and elastin to you hair. It is a salon professional product so you will be able to use less than drug store shampoo and conditioner.

  9. QUESTION:
    what are other African American girls secret to growing your hair long and strong?
    i want my hair to grow really long. i have started drinking alot of water and trying the natural thing and pulling my hair tight. but what other things can i do or things that u do to make it grow?

    • ANSWER:
      There is no magical oil, conditioner, or moisturizer that’s going to grow your hair. That isn’t the problem since you already know how to grow hair. In fact, you’re doing it right now. The problem comes with KEEPING the hair you already have.

      As the others have said, olive oil is good for your hair, but at the same time, it won’t make your hair suddenly grow 2 inches a month. It isn’t a miracle. No product is. Also, oils do NOT moisturize your hair by themselves. They can make your hair softer, shinier, and less prone to split ends, but you will need to start deep conditioning at least once a week if you want moisture.

      I’d say that all in all, it’s less about what you put in your hair and more with what you do to it since no amount of conditioner or oil is going to save you from something like excessive heat damage. For instance, you shouldn’t be pulling your hair tight. That’s a no-no! You could also damage some of your hair follicles by doing that, and once they’re gone, you’re hair will never grow back in that spot again.

      I think the key is leaving your hair alone. Don’t flat iron it more than 2x a week. Don’t get your hair dyed or straightened if you have a relaxer. Oh, and please, wash your hair at least once a week, because it’s hard to grow hair when bacteria, dead skin cells, and products can build up, which will suffocate your hair. Speaking of suffocating your hair, please please PLEASE do not use grease or anything with mineral oil in it. That’s honestly one of the worst things you could do. Use oil instead of grease.

    how can you grow your hair strong even during the summer when its hot and will get fried?
    when its hottttt and you are still trying to grow your hair long and healthy what are the best ways to do it?

    • ANSWER:
      I have very long hair [It goes down to my lower back] and I’m lucky to have a hairdresser for a mother.

      In the summer I have my hair deep conditioned and it really soft and it supposed to last about a week.

      There are treatments for at home, and sometimes leaving your conditioner in your hair longer works.

      Before I go swimming, I leave conditioner in it and after I take a normal shower.

      It usually works! I hope it helped!

  16. QUESTION:
    Doest the shampoo that says it helps you grow your hair long faster work?
    I read lots of magazines and at the end there is always an ad about this shampoo or something that helps you grow your hair out long faster and stronger. Ive never had my hair longer than like an inch past my shoulders. Ive always wanted that long flowing hair but my hair grows too slow. Everytime I try, I just get impatient and just cut it. Do you know if it works or do you know any other ways for my hair to grow out faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Shampoos are topical, meaning they work on the surface of the scalp. The hair follicle which is inside the scalp has to be nourished, that is where the growing takes place. The type of hair we all have is hereditary and it is usually on the mothers. The best You can do is use professional hair products and have your ends trimmed to keep the ends blunt. Remember that whatever you put in your mouth will show in your skin, hair and nails. So eat healthy. Stick to one hairstylist, don’t jump around and develop a relationship. Good luck

I was wondering if anyone knew any ways how to make your hair grow longer faster but that isn’t too expensive. Also if anyone knows does the sunsilk longer and stronger shampoo and conditioner really make your hair grow faster?

    • ANSWER:
      It takes a huge commitment to grow your mane amazing lengths. But it can be done! Below, are the top 10 tips to achieving length in the least amount of time.

      1. You need to start off with the health of your hair. So, go to a place like Super Cuts and get a good trim of about ½ inch at least. Now you’re ready for maximum growth.

      2. Wear protective styles every single day. No exception. This means French rolls, buns or other types of updos where your hair ends are not exposed to the air.

      3. Eliminate any and all types of heat. Put away the curling iron. Hide the flat iron. Put the blow dryer in the back of the closet. They will not help you reach your goal.

      4. Keep your ends moisturized. On a daily basis, add moisture to your ends in terms of a lotion moisturizer, oil like jojoba or a leave-in conditioner.

      5. Keep your tresses super conditioned by using a moisturizing conditioner bi-weekly and a protein conditioner once a month to keep your hair nice and strong.

      6. Treat your hair like super fine lace! Be gentle and take your time when combing, detangling, and styling.

      7. Do not play in your hair. Style it for the day and leave it alone. Constantly fussing with it will only make it dry which leads to split ends.

      8. Wear a protective satin or silk scarf when you go to bed at night. If you don’t do either of those, then sleep on a satin pillowcase. These will keep you from getting tangles and dryness.

      9. Make sure you’re getting all of the proper nutrition by eating lots of vegetables and getting protein. Take a multi-vitamin to make sure you’re getting all of the vitamins you need.

      10. Use moisturizing products only. Learn about the ingredients in shampoos and stay away from harsh shampoos. Try brands by Neutrogena, Nexxus, Keracare.

      If you’re serious about growing long hair fast, I hope these tips will be a reference guide for how you can do it. Remember, it takes a commitment and is not something that can happen overnight. You must commit to taking better care of your hair for a long time and not give up because you don’t see results as quickly as you’d like. Stick with it and I can guarantee you’ll see results!

  28. QUESTION:
    What is the best hair products to use to make your hair grow longer and stronger?

    • ANSWER:
      Okay. Your Avatar indicates that you’re a sista. Okay mama you need products for your specific hair type, moisture but, won’t clog pores. There is this new product. It’s all natural, won’t strip the hair of moisture and nourishes like crazy. They have vitamins, and hair treatments. You HAVE to use products that work from the inside out. Besides their vitamins last longer in your body so they work better. Others run right through you. You end up peeing them out. Anyway, someone told me about them and they’re website is www.fabricnaturals.com. I think they are doing some work on their site and it’s down temporarily. But, try them. Trust me. If it worked for my hair (which has NEVER been long but, now is longer than it’s ever been) it could work for you.

  31. QUESTION:
    How can I grow my hair long and strong?
    I used to have wavy hair, but then I permed (the straight one) it. My hair was originally dry, but it was soft to brush. Now, it was very difficult to manage. It got split ends all over it. It is even difficult to comb, especially when I don’t put conditioner all over it. My hair is slowly returning to its wavy style, but then it’s still difficult to manage not like my old hair. I’ve read in the internet that split ends slows down the growth of your hair. What can I do? I don’t want to chop my hair off. I want to have a long hair in a short time.

      Two words, Vitamin C.
      Vitamin C is an antioxidant,that helps to maintain the overall health of your hair.
      It is found in foods such as red berries, kiwi, red and green bell peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, and juices made from guava’s, grapefruit’s, and orange’s.
      All foods and juices listed above contain a high amount of the vitamin.
      For the last few months i have also been trying to grow my hair, i thought not cutting it would help it to grow faster, but i was wrong. A few weeks ago i got my hair trimmed as i had alot of split ends ect. And as a result; recently my hair has grown alot more. Its best to get your hair trimmed every month or so.
      hope this helps your hair to grow.
      good luck :)

  33. QUESTION:
    Do formulas promising to make your hair grow faster actually work?
    I saw this ad in Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide called Long N Strong Extra that says it can make your hair longer and stronger in just 5-7 days. Is it a gag or does it work? Does any product work to grow hair faster?

    • ANSWER:
      No. That’s a fake. There is nothing on this planet that can speed up your genetics to make your hair grow faster. Some women notice that their hair grows faster during pregnancy, but that is just because of hormones.

      Don’t ever believe a product when it says that it will make your hair grow faster, because in the end you will just end up getting your hopes up, and wasting your time and especially your money.

  37. QUESTION:
    Does Biotin make your hair grow faster/longer??
    I just got the vitamin, Biotin, and I’m wondering if it actually works for hair growth. Did it make your hair grow longer and stronger, faster?

    Also, what is the most I could take per day, without overdosing myself?

    If Biotin doesnt work, what are some other things I could do/take to make my hair grow faster?

    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      I’ve been taking Biotin for a year now. I started it because my nails were getting very brittle and I read somewhere that Biotin was good for the nails, skin and hair. About the third month on Biotin, I started seeing a difference, my nails were starting to get stronger and a more pinkish color. I also noticed that some dark patches on my skin, especially on my elbows and knees, started to disappear. My hair started to look shinny and more managable, before it was dull and frizzy but I thought it was the hair color. Now, one year later, I can go without many other things, but not without Biotin. My nails are strong and have great pink color. The dark spots on my elbows and knees totally disappeared, even when my dermatologist said that only with laser treatment they will improve. My hair is shinny and soft even when I’m still coloring it. Regarding the growth of the hair, I haven’t noticed anything different, my hair has always grown fast. But, I can tell you, give “Biotin” a try, but dont get discourage if you dont see the results immediately, we are all different, maybe you’ll see the results faster or slower, but I can tell you for sure, Biotin works……..

      EDIT:

      “Princesa Morenita”, may God bless you, I’ve been thinking on taking two 5,000 mg a day, but were not sure about it. Your words have encouraged me…….thanks a lot!!!

  38. QUESTION:
    Does Garnier long and strong work? Does it make your hair grow?

    • ANSWER:
      DO NOT USE GARNIER FOR ANYTHING!!!! I used Garnier and it dries out your hair soooo much. Please do not use it. Everyone would compliment me on how silky smooth and pretty my hair was. I used freakin Garnier and my hair turned dry and brittle and I’m working my butt off to get my hair back =[. Please do not use it.

      No matter what you try, nothing will actually make your hair grow longer. I cut all my hair off and was in a depression. Nothing really helps your hair grow except keeping it strong and healthy and being, unfortunatly, patient. I know that's not what you want to hear, because I never wanted to hear it, but it's the truth. =] Good luck though.

  39. QUESTION:
    I’ve heard about these things to take to make your hair grow?
    I’ve heard about Gelatin pills thata make your hair and nails grow longer and stronger, is it like vitamins? Is it good for you? If I stop taking them will it stop my hair and nail growth? Is it bad to take it if you’re 13 years old?
    Is there anything else I can take if I shouldn’t take the gelatin pills?

    • ANSWER:
      I think that you shouldn’t use that. I would wait until my hair grows long and it work! My hair was at my shoulder and now its at my waist! it took only 4-5 months but I had patience. The results were great and all I did was shampoo and condition my hair twice a week. Please have patience when you want to grow your hair. Don’t use pills because somebody on the news took a lot of gelatin pills and got a stroke. please I beg u, take my advice and don’t use it. You’ll regret it one day. oh and gelatin pills, yeah its almost like vitamins but don’t take too much you could get a stroke. Good luck! Plus to have stronger hair, don’t use too much chemicals on it, it will “break” your hair. Shampoo and condition it twice a week.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi, For shampoo and conditioner try Thicker Fuller hair, try to get the original formula, the new one has caffeine and it smells strong or you can get a Biotin shampoo (if you can afford Nioxin Shampoo even better).
      you need a good deep conditioner , i use Biolage Conditioning Balm. Do a protein treatment once a month, Nexxus Emergencee is a good one. Other than that this is optional

      Do not brush hair while wet, If possible use Boar Bristle Brush to style your hair.
      Take Vitamin E and Biotin supplements, Flax seed oil supplements and garlic are also good. MSM is known to be a monster when it comes to hair growth. Massage your scalp at least one a day. The blood flow to you head which stimulates hair growth.
      These are all thing’s that will help your hair grow at a faster pace, they’ve been helping me so far and Ive been having great results. Here are some before and afters. Out of all the supplements i recommend the most MSN and Biotiin They will make your hair take off. Believe it or not, most of these products have lots of nutrients that come from nature and specially the biotiin shampoo which is considered organic and they are Ph balanced, Most of these products have help my hair grow nice and strong, they will help you too.

    i cut my hair really short a year ago and it just grew back to my shoulders i really want it past my chest any tips

      It’s supposed to because the shampoo and conditioner have a lot of protein in it. Protein makes your hair really strong. And when your hair is strong it will grow longer because it will be healthy and not break off.

  46. QUESTION:
    Natural ways to make your hair grow faster???
    Are there any natural ways to make my hair grow faster like certain vitamins I could take to make my hair grow faster, longer and stronger?

    • ANSWER:
      mulit-vitamins -I am taking
      pre-natal
      vitamin E

  47. QUESTION:
    Do hair vitamins really make your hair grow longer, healthier, and stronger?
    If so, can you recommend some brands to try? Also, do the results differ depending on hair type (straight vs. coarse hair)?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes they do. I have always had long hair since I was little and with that my mother got tired of pressing it and I eventually got a perm. Fast forward to now, my hair is still long but thin. I was told it was the medication I was on and that was only part true. My hair would shed really bad and all the beauticians wanted to do was cut it! I have had my hair cut shoulder length at least 4 times in my life and it still shed!!!I finally came to the realization that the perm was thinning my hair out over the years and I finally decided after 4 years to go natural!

      You can find the hair vitamins at GNC, Vitamin Shoppe or even Wal-Mart. Look for the ones that say “Hair, Skin & Nails for women”. I have tired all name brands, but when I turned the bottle over, they all basically have the same ingredients. With that, you should also stay away from hot curling tools, like blow dryers and curling irons, this will only work against what you are trying to do. Another thing that I was told by a stylist was to brush my hair every night. I know, I know…we were always told not to brush the hair when you have a perm (at least I was) but get a brush with the nodules on the tips because this will stimulate the scalp and get blood to flow to the hair cuticles. Drink plenty of water, deep condition and you’re good.

      It doesn’t matter the texture. I am a 4B (my nappy sistas know what I mean) and it grew my hair. Now, with what I have read and it is true as far as I’m concerned, is that if you have a perm the hair holds static so that when it brushes up against your clothes it creates split ends due to friction or whatever and it’s hard for the hair to grow past a certain length. I as told to use fabric softener in my dryer. I’m not a scientist so I can’t offer any facts except my own.

  49. QUESTION:
    what are the best things to eat and do to make your hair grow healthy and strong?
    I am trying to go on a major hair diet and switch all my products to organic. But their is so much stuff out their i just don’t know what to do first. My hair use to be long but then i started dying, cutting and doing a lot of heat damage.

    • ANSWER:
      A healthy, varied diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins will do both body and hair good. A multivitamin can’t hurt–and once I had to take additional calcium supplements for something, my hair and nails never grew so fast or strong! A hairstylist once told me that she could always tell the meateaters–vegetarians always had thinner hair; this is purely anecdotal, but I eat healthy lean meats and my hair is thick and grows so fast I can’t keep up with it. Good luck!

  50. QUESTION:
    Does growing your hair long prevent baldness?
    I’ve noticed how men who grow their hair long rarely go bald. And most women grow their hair long for most of their lives, and baldness is much less common in women than in men.

    Does growing your hair long force the root to become stronger since it has to hold onto that long of a hair, ultimately giving the root its “exercise,” so it doesn’t die out like men who have short hair?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry now that will not work. Just keep you hair and scalp clean – rub a product called “Sea Breeze” on your head once every other week are you can go to a salon and ask for a head and scalp treatment. Massage your scalp to help the pores to release some natural oils. Most men with long hair cover a bald spot by wearing a pony tail.


Grow Your Hair Long Fast

Are you tired of being a short hair? Do you want to bring back those long locks back but it is just taking forever? Then be prepared to be open your eyes to the possibilities of getting them back easily…

It is fun to be abreast with the latest hairstyles. In 2008, stars like Katie Holmes, Posh Spice and Rihanna has popularized the fringed and bobbed hairstyle that is super short. It really looks nice on women and sure, many people has copied them. Being shorthaired has its own benefits. You will not have a hard time treating it or managing it. Everything is easy. However, there will also come a time that women would surely miss having long hair. Having them cut this short, would not exactly give you back your long hair overnight or even in months. Your hair follows a cycle so you cannot hurry it up easily because it follows a pattern, a cycle, a phase. That is why for some it takes years before you can have your long hair back. However, it is worth the wait because long hair never goes out of style.

If you cannot wait to get back your “irrefutable femininity”, then you should know the different options on how to get it easily.

Hair extensions

You can have these weaved, braided, bonded or clipped on your hair and your hair will grow instantly long. You do not have to worry about coloring it because you can actually dye it to blend well with your hair color. If not, you can use them as your own sets of highlights. If you used to have a limp hair or thinning hair, the use of these items can add volume to your hair making giving it body to spunk it up. This is usually done in the salon so expect it will cost you to have it done perfectly.

Wig

If you want a cheaper method of having a long hair, this is one of your best options. On top of that, you do not have to go to salons and be stuck for minutes or hours to have it done. This is your easiest option and it is a wash and wear solution for wanting your hair to grow long. Maintaining it should be easy and you can even have it as your personal collection. On top of that, hairstyles are pre-made so you do not have to undergo another set of hairstyling.

Supplements and Treatment Solutions

This is the slowest method that you can employ to achieve long hair. It is unlike having hair extensions and wigs. You have to drink a lot of vitamins and protein supplements to facilitate hair growth. On top of that, while you use solutions to facilitate hair growth, massage it more than often for stimulation.

You see, you do have instant options on getting back that long hair. If you have the money, go for extensions and wigs. If you are not that in a hurry and it does not matter whether you grow it back overnight just as long as it grows, then choose the third option.

    How do you grow your hair long fast?
    i want my hair to grow longer by august, how can it grow faster? i have blonde hair that is straight

    • ANSWER:
      Hair won’t grow any faster than it will grow. To keep it healthly and help it grow – don’t cut it, get a 1/4″ trim every 6 weeks – this will keep the ends from breaking.

      To be honest, it probably won’t grow that much by August – so just get extensions

  7. QUESTION:
    How to get your hair to grow long fast?
    Last school year i chopped my hair off and it was very long before i cut it all off. But i was just wondering is there any ways i can make it grow fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Not very long, there’s no magic power, no hair products that can speed things up, just the healthy foods you eat and your good genes and A LOT OF PATIENCE.

      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.

      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.

  9. QUESTION:
    How to make your hair grow long really fast?
    My hair is at my shoulders and I rrly want it to grow fast but it won’t. I don’t wanna take pills. Is there any shampoo Nd conditioner I could use?

    • ANSWER:
      Really fast? Not even my hair can do that trick!

      I started to grow my hair long since 2003. I have good genes, and eat 3-5 servings of fresh fruits & veggies. I trim my hair 1″ a month, 4″ 2x a year. It’s down to my knees now. You do the math. Even healthy hairs like mine get split ends. You trim them yourself, using 2″ scissors, spend 5-10 mins. on a sunny day, strand by strand, section by section, sometimes you’ll find splits in the middle of the strand.
      Brush your hair only when it’s completely dried. Never on wet hair, I don’t even use a comb, nor a conditioner, unless your hair is chemically treated. For curly hair, finger comb it.

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

      well it won’t be to long within the first month or so but it’ll look
      longer.

      i know i had this horrible haircut,

      so your hair can grow 6 to 10 inches
      in a month!

      i use hair go once in a while i’ve gotten it down to
      my belly button but i think it’s good at this length
      but i usaully get layers and trimmed.

      how to use :

      before styling or before bed.
      apply it to your scalp
      rub in all around your hair to
      don’t put to much just put enough.

      if you put it in before styling, it may become greasy
      do this everyday for a month and you’ll see improvment.

  20. QUESTION:
    HOW DO YOU HELP YOUR HAIR GROW LONG FAST?
    My hair is exactly bust line, and I want it to touch lower back.

    • ANSWER:
      Any nutritional deficiencies can slow hair growth or stop your hair from growing. Your hair ultimately reflects the overall condition of your body.

      If your body is healthy and well-nourished, your hair will be your shining glory. If you are having any health problems or suffering from any nutritional deficiencies, your hair may stop growing or show damage or become brittle. If your body is in good health, 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 important to hair growth because beta-carotene 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!

  22. QUESTION:
    How can you make your hair grow long fast?

    • ANSWER:
      Also, what you eat and how much nutrition you put in your body depends on how much is able to get to your hair. By that i mean, everything you put in your body, the nutrition goes everywhere in your body, but hits your hair and nails last. So if your just taking in enough to satisfy your body, your hair will not have the incentive to grow more than what it already does.

      And in reference to the first answer up there, I even asked my doctor what extra vitamins I could take to make my hair grow even a little faster and I did mention Biotin cause I thought it would help. He said no. I was a little shocked that he said it. He told me to just keep taking a multi-vitamin everyday.

      Also, I was put on weight loss medication by prescription a couple months ago. The purpose of the meds are to make your adrenaline flow faster. Ok well if your adrenaline is going, your blood is going faster, and there for your hair and nails get nutrients faster. The only reason I know this is because my hair is a good 2-3 inches longer since November. Its great and thats what led me to ask the doctor what i could do to keep it growing like that cause im not going to be on the meds much longer.

      The only thing he said was just take a multi-vitamin. I guess also some sort of exercise would be good as well because it makes your blood run faster. Also i was told that if you brush your hair 100 strokes everyday it will help to massage your head and so make the blood come to your scalp. I was also told that if you hang upside down off the edge of your bed and tug on your hair it would help too. I dont do that of course but different strokes for different folks as i always say lol.

      Also the jello idea isnt as crazy as it sounds. It has gellatin in it and so helps build your hair. But i dont know how much of it you have to eat to reap the benefits lol.

  26. QUESTION:
    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!

  29. 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!

  30. QUESTION:
    What are some tricks to getting your hair to grow long faster.?
    I want to grow my hair long, it’s taking forever. I want a special haircut but its too short for that. How do I trick it into growing faster?

    • ANSWER:
      listen, i used to have the same problem. i would wait and wait and it seems like nothing would happen. my hair grew so slow! thats also because i used a lot of hair spray and gel and stuff like that, and i knew absolutely nothing about hair! let me fill u in, hairspray & gel will slow ur hair growth. stay away from them.
      right now im taking biotin pills, and prenatal vitamins, and wild growth hair oil. it seems like its really working too!

      -now the biotin pills, you have to take 1000 mcg everyday (i have 1000 tablets, so i only have to take one a day)
      -prenatal vitamins, im taking 2 daily and it really does work. the bottle says only pregnant women should take 2 and non-pregnant women take 1. but i just take 2.
      -wild growth hair oil, i bought it on ebay for a great price. (ill give you the links to everything later) now be careful, because the bottle says that you need to use about 5-15 drops on wet hair. dont do that. use it BEFORE you get in the shower, other than taking it after. let me tell you why, it makes your hair SO greasy, remember it is an oil! so make sure you leave it in for about 30-45 minutes (massage in your scalp so you can get it spread throughout your head) then wash it out in the shower. when you get in the shower, you can shampoo your hair 2 or 3 times, as long as you get the oil out.
      -another thing is to massage your scalp, it helps the blood flow to your head which stimulates hair growth.

      other than that stay healthy, eat your protein, and drink lots of water and you will be there in no time! i hope i was the best answer! i put alot of time into this answer. good luck!

  31. QUESTION:
    How fast does your hair grow? How long would it take to grow it from your shoulders to your elbow?
    I’m trying to grow my short haircut out. I’m not sure if my hair grows fast or not so I wanted to hear from other girls how fast their hair grows….

    • ANSWER:
      Listen I am not going to lie to you, it all depends on you and how fast your hair grows. There are fast ways to grow your hair but you have to have the money to get it started, The first thing that I would do is start clipping the ends your self because only you know how much you want off of your hair, then you should treat your hair as much as possible With protien treatments and hot oil treatments every four days why so much because you are no looking ofr length. Get a wash in set like all threw the fall and for the rest of the summer try and get braids or do little twist in your hair and when you get the wash and sets make sure you wrap your hair at night with a silk scarf. because it is hot in the summer get like some cornrrows or anything going up and off you back, everyday use acreame like the carrot oil cream from organic, or hair maynoise, everyday no matter what syle you have in your hair, do not usr grease because it clogs the pores. Use galic shampoo and conditioner and take these hair vitamins here you go and by like two years you should have your hair where you want it. P.S do not perm your hair until every seven months I just did this because I was planning on going natural but I changed my mind and I saw alot of new growth when i finally did perm it seven months later, I really hope this helps. Oh and what ever you do please do not color your hair unless it is a rinse and it has to be jet black.

    how do you get your hair to grow long fast?
    i want my hair to be long like up to my waist .i start school in 19 days so i need it long .what do i need to do?

    • ANSWER:
      There is nothing that will make you natural hair grow that fast. If you need an over-night miracle, you can always put in extensions which will make you hair longer. These can be expensive though. My hair is about mid-thigh and while I don’t have a secret, I can tell you that I braid it a lot. Braiding your hair,( Not every-one agrees) makes your hair grow faster and longer. You will not have waist length hair over night, but it does help. Just braid it at night before you go to bed. One big braid that starts at the nape of your neck. Good luck.

  36. QUESTION:
    how do you grow your hair long but fast?
    i have medium length hair that is thick, frizzy & hard to handle. im looking to grow it long but in a quick amount of time. hopefully a little less than a month.
    what type of products should i use? what types of treatments? anything else that will help?
    i use:

    ion- moisture solutions Miracle leave in conditioner.
    infusium23 repair & renew leave in treatment.
    pantene medium/thick intensive restoration treatment.
    i also do take hair vitiams that have biotin.

    • ANSWER:
      Well firstly, I know this is obvious, but don’t use heat on it! No straighteners, hair driers, curlers etc. If you don’t like wearing your hair natural like that, then I highly recomend pantene straighten and smooth creme. I have thick, frizz hair too, and this stuff does magic for it. It gets rid of all those flyaways, plus doesn’t leave that nasty producty feel. Also to get rid of frizz try using a shampoo and conditioner geared towards dry hair, even if you don’t consider it dry. I like aussie stuff. Put the conditioner everywhere, not just ends!

      Anyway I’m starting to ramble so back to long hair!
      Everyone says your hair grows faster when you trim it every other month or so, but they’re wrong! Your supposed to trim it to get rid of split ends, so your hair will be healthy. However its easier just to not get split ends in the first place. Sounds impossible but its not! I haven’t vut my hair in seven months and I have hardly any. I use bed head ego boost split end mender and leave in conditioner. It works amazing. I just use it everytime I get out of the shower. Its a little pricy, but lasts a long time.
      Try to use some split end product though. That way your hair will be healthy when its long!

      My standard tips are these- Do not use too many products, shampoos or conditioners won’t help much because the nutrients in them aren’t absorbed by the hair.
      Avoid heat like irons or dryers, eat right (lots of good protein & vitamin).
      There are hair vitamins available too, they have the right nutrients & really help your hair grow fast. You should try Alpha Renew hair vitamins. I have a friend who tried them & she said they made her hair grown back really fast!

      the ends, it not going to do anything to it. You can find it at
      walmart in the pet section. also you should drink plenty of water
      to condition your hair and when shampooing and conditioning you should
      use cold or luke warm water on your hair so it won’t damage it.
      Even hot water hurts your hair.

      Btw if your looking for a cute hairstyle to try out without heat try these:

  50. QUESTION:
    Doest the shampoo that says it helps you grow your hair long faster work?
    I read lots of magazines and at the end there is always an ad about this shampoo or something that helps you grow your hair out long faster and stronger. Ive never had my hair longer than like an inch past my shoulders. Ive always wanted that long flowing hair but my hair grows too slow. Everytime I try, I just get impatient and just cut it. Do you know if it works or do you know any other ways for my hair to grow out faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Shampoos are topical, meaning they work on the surface of the scalp. The hair follicle which is inside the scalp has to be nourished, that is where the growing takes place. The type of hair we all have is hereditary and it is usually on the mothers. The best You can do is use professional hair products and have your ends trimmed to keep the ends blunt. Remember that whatever you put in your mouth will show in your skin, hair and nails. So eat healthy. Stick to one hairstylist, don’t jump around and develop a relationship. Good luck


Grow Your Hair For Peace

Choosing the correct wave or curl pattern for your system can be very confusing especially if you’re attempting to order a hair system without the help of a salon professional. Generally speaking we all have a certain amount of wave or movement to our hair. There are exceptions of course but those who have stick straight hair know who they are and there choice becomes an easy one. For the rest of us it can be a big question.

f you have considerably straight hair but your hair gets a little wavy in humid conditions or has some bounce to it when air dried then you will usually fall into the Body Wave or aNatural Wavea category. This is a safe bet for most people as it does give the hair wearer the option for soft natural movement or the ability to restyle the hair with the use of thermal styling tools such as blow dryers and hot irons. Once you start looking at your hair as having aCurla it becomes more difficult to make the determination. If you have a definite curl to your hair there are two ways to get a good idea of the curl pattern required. The first and easiest is to simply cut a complete curl, tape it to a piece of paper or an index card and send it along with your order. Usually the person who edits your hair order will be able to determine the size of the curl required for your hair system. The other way is to have someone take a ruler or tape measure and take a measurement of the inside of a curl and record the measurement the technician taking care of your order can then convert this into the centimeter size that the factory would need to use to create the curl required for your particular order.

  3. QUESTION:
    how to grow or improve your hair?
    my hair is very dry and brittle, i also have dandruff, for my dandruff i have used head and shoulders, nizrol (which made my hair extremely dry) and polyter shampoo, nothing seems to work, plus my hair does not even grow, it takes ages to grow, i had a hair cut 3 months ago and its still very short,my friends hair grow so quickly, i thought i was anemic coz am very pale, went to the doctors to get my blood result, the blood result hadn’t come in but my doctor took 1 look at me and said he could tell i was anemic after looking into my eye sockets, but i got the result last week and was told i didn’t need iron tablets, what i want to know is how can i get rid of this annoying dandruff and also improve my hair growth? i also took PERFECTEL tablets for skin hair and nails, but that didn’t work either, i don’t have shinny hair, it seems like its a lifeless peace of hair on my head, i look like a women who’s had an electric shock lol
    hey thanx for your reply, well i forgot to mention about the oils, i have been massagin oil in my hair( alomond oil, jasmin oil) and i kept it in my hair over night, that got rid of my dandruff for a while but my hair didint improve even a slight bit, AND my dandruff came back
    shall i use Gro-Aut Hair Oil?? is this any good ??

    • ANSWER:
      For the dandruff try a tea tree oil shampoo. And for growing hair, you can’t make it grow. Cutting/trimming is a myth no matter what anyone says. By trimming it you make it look healthier and there’s a very defined end to it so when it grows it gives the look of it growing faster. Trimming your hair simply gets rid of the dead ends, which is good, but you hair grows from the root so it doesn’t do anything for growth. Pills can make your hair stronger but they don’t make your hair grow faster. Again, they only give the appearance of it growing faster since it’s healthier. For healthier hair try either biotin pills or prenatal (yes omg prenatal haha). I’ve tried it all and nothing makes your hair grow faster but you can always make it healthier. Good luck!

  5. QUESTION:
    How should one straighten there hair?
    If you’re male, and your hair doesn’t grow straight down, but more up and everywhere, how should you straighten your hair/make your hair grow down for good?
    Because if you use straighteners, it won’t look right at first, so it’d be a silly idea..

    Its difficult to word..
    any help would be appreciated!

    peace
    What I mean is, how do you make your hair grow down?
    Like, long and down, but not completely straight..
    Much like Kurt Cobain’s hair..

    • ANSWER:
      Yes straighteners only work temporarily and can damage the hair or leave kinks.

      The curl/wave in your hair is held in place by links in the hair structure. To straighten it you need to chemically undo these links, put the hair how you want it to be then chemically redo them.

      It is the same method used in perming but instead of putting the hair in curlers/rollers you would comb it straight.
      Its worth getting it professionally done, it can then be maintained between treatments with a relaxant shampoo.

  6. QUESTION:
    How do you apply liquid eyeliner?
    ok…I have more Questions please!
    How do u apply liquid eyeliner?
    What is a bronzer?
    Are hair extentions good for curly hair?
    how do you make your hair grow faster?
    When Ashley Tisdale wheres her hair in loose curls how does she do it/hairdresser do it?
    xox Peace Out

    • ANSWER:
      OK. To apply liquid eye liner, I personally think you get a better and more even line if you keep both your eyes slightly open as you do it, and dont close the eye to which you are applying the liner.
      You should then slowly draw a thin line right against you top lashes on both eyes which ensure you get a solid line, then work out how thick you want it an try to draw a line above both eyes.
      I reccomend you use non-waterproof liner because if you make a mistake you can just use a q-tip and a bit of water to even out or thin out the lines.
      If you want to do a flick at the corner of the eye, I would recommend you use pencil eyeliner to draw two dots where you want the flick to come to and then just use the liqid liner to draw up to that point.

      Bronzer is a type of make that is used to excentuate certain features by making them look for tanned. It is often applied to the cheekbones.

      It is possible to use hair extentions in curly hair, but it maybe harder the get the right amount of curl as your natural hair.

      I dont think there is any proven method of making your hair grow faster, but getting it cut regularly (believe it or not) supposedly makes your hair grow at a faster rate, and makes it grow thicker and healthier.

      I would presume that Ashley Tisdales hair is done using rollers, because of the loseness and width of the curls. I have heard that heated rollers work really well for this and you can get hold of them quite easily.

      Hope all theis helps!

  7. QUESTION:
    Help i’m trying to grow my hair, but i have a bald spot behind my ear?
    well i’m 16 and i’m trying to grow my hair out into an Afro, but somebody recently brought to my attention a small bald spot behind my ear. I don’t know what i should do about it.
    I used to have an Afro and my hair was fine, but i straightened it to spike it (not my smartest decision), so now my hair is relatively short again. (My picture above is old, my hair is shorter now)
    could the cause be because i straightened it(Relaxer) it didn’t feel like my scalp was burning? if i do grow my Afro, will it even still be noticeable? will it grow eventually? is there anything i could do to help it grow? I just need peace of mind, because i feel like i’m too young to be balding already.

    pictures of the spot:

    Thanks for your Help
    i dont know how clear i made it, but the rest of my hair is growing fine, just behind my ear isn’t

    • ANSWER:
      First, don’t be shy about a bald spot or 2 or 3, look around you, some guys don’t even have bald spots but get it done because it’s cool. If you have to do anything with your hair, just do it and be a good guy, joke a lot and people, those who look at you or seem to notice it, tell them that you shaved it just to make them look at you, laugh about it.
      Also, are you a pepsi drinker? cause pepsi and other sorts of drinks and junk food can give you bald spots so be careful and enjoy life as yourself and not for what others can think!
      good luck!

  12. QUESTION:
    I know it’s hard being a Muslim, but will the world be all on you just ‘coz you got a few hairs on your face?
    Some men assert that their jobs require shaving the beard, and that they would lose their jobs if they do not shave. Others say growing their beards in certain countries would endanger their lives or cause them harm in their person, property, or Deen.

    Will you please show this to your employer?

    To whom it may concern,

    This is to inform that the Islamic faith requires of every Muslim man growing a substantial beard. This is based on the command of the Noble Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him): “Trim your moustaches and leave alone your beards.”

    Muslim employees and subordinates who choose to abide by this should be permitted to do so by their superiors. Freedom of religion is protected by our Constitution. Therefore, help and cooperation to facilitate for the Muslims performing their religious duties is appreciated.

    Questions and inquiries are welcome to be directed to us.

    Signature

    [Insert name].

    You should consider yourselves lucky if your genetics allow you to grow your beard so fast that even if you shave it, you can get a full beard in a matter of few weeks if you let it grow and let it flow. Do you know how long it takes for other people (myself included)? You can see us not shaving for 6 months and it’s not even close to what some of you guys can have in three weeks!

    I’ve explained before that you should not be in doubt that Allaah is Ar-Razzaaq. Look around you! People who disbelieve in the Oneness of Allaah and His Messenger are still blessed with the bounties of this world. The Mercy of Allaah encompasses all His creations, yet these disbelievers remain ignorant how great is the One who provides them with what they have every day.

    So what of us, who testify that there is none that deserves to be worshipped but Allaah, and that His Messenger is Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam)? Will Allaah abandon His servants who are steadfast to obey His commands, sincere in implementing the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam), committed to dedicate our lives for the sole purpose of attaining His forgiveness of our sins and wrongdoings in hope that He may protect us from the Hell-fire and grant us entrance to the doors of Paradise? Will He desert His servants, when He shows Mercy towards those that disbelieve in Him?

    There are very few things in store for this world that we can be proud of. Being a Muslim is one of them. So, be strong and have faith that Allaah will protect you, and do not give up to those who will not give up in deviating you from the Straight Path. Insha Allaah every trial and tribulations that befall on us in this world will be a purification for us, so that we may find ourselves cleansed of our sins in the Hereafter! Aameen.

    Assalaamu ‘Alaykum.
    And who said every Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) is optional? He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) made it clear to us that growing the beard is part of the Islamic faith.
    - From Sahih Muslim:
    The ruler of Yemen, appointed by the Persian emperor Kisra, sent two envoys to the Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam). When they came into his presence, he noticed that they had shaved their beards and let their moustaches grow big. Hating their ugly appearance, he turned his face away and said, “Woe be to you, who told you to do so?” They replied: “Our lord (Kisra) did!”

    [ READ THE FOLLOWING CLEARLY ]
    The Messenger (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) responded: “But my Lord, Exalted and Glorified be He, has commanded me to spare my beard and trim my moustaches.”
    Please read ‘The Beard between the Salaf and the Khalaf’ by Muhammad Al-Jibaly.

    • ANSWER:
      Wa alaikum Salam.

      Masha-Allah very well putforth. How beautiful is the face of a Muslim who trims his mustache and let his beard grow. I see these practicing Muslims whom if looked at their face is as if they have no worries or troubles in their life. Happy and contented, smiling and satisfied. Their heart must be similing always, that’s why. A believer, who has faith in Allah (s.w.t) and who love Allah and His messenger will surely grow his beard. Mostly it is inner that brings the fruits outside. Only if the seed is present inside the soil will come out the stems and leaves out. So this is based on one’s faith and yaqeen in the heard. What has to worry for a man who believes Allah (s.w.t) is his Raaziq. Before whom a Muslim has to bow his head who bows everytime before the Lord of the Worlds.

      Then people question, is all those bearded are good Muslim and shaved ones to be bad. No we don’t believe that. There can be good Muslims without beards. All Muslims give immense respect to Qari Abdul Basit Abdul Samad (May Allah have mercy on him), we go in tears when we listen to his recitations. He had no beard Like Allama Iqbal, people praise his poetry and insight, or Abdullah Yusuf Ali for his translation of Quran, they were great Muslims. ‘ But they are not our example in this. We see amongst Muslims those who wish to grow a beard knowing its importance, but their weakness don’t allow them. They have regret in their heart. But there are other class of Muslim who questions ‘What the beard is for?’ They should worry themselves as they are mocking Sunnah of Rasululllah (s.a.w).

      A story I read somewhere….
      During the Mangolian’s invasion of Muslim lands, one of Mangol asked a Muslim scholar with a grown beard, Is your beard any better than the tail of an animal. The scholar replied’ Yes, if I am obeying Allah (s.w.t) and his messenger, I am valued in the sight of Allah and my beard has a value.. and if I am disobeying Allah and His messenger, all my external will not bring any good to me.

      There are those who grow beard for ‘fashion’ a French beard for eg:- like many we see today, Islamic beard is to leave the beard grow and trim the mustache. To be neat and tidy is a part. I heard scholars say Rasulullah (s.a.w) carried a comp always to comp his beard and hair. There is even a Dua taught when looking at mirror.
      Anyway, Something started for the sake of Allah should only be forsaken for the sake of Allah. A Muslim may grow beard understanding it’s virtue, then later in life, there comes a small test from Allah and he is ready to shave them off. Allah (s.w.t) would have given him better if he only remained patient and holdfast to Deen. One of my friends had to quit a highly paid job just he was asked to shave his beard off. He did quit his job ‘People were like saying ‘ Why couldn’t you ADJEST for a while. It’s a matter of our survival….and so on. But a Muslim having the true faith that Allah is above all. He is the Master above all masters. A Kafeel above all Kafeel. Would rely on Allah. Only few days passed, he had the news that a high businessman is looking for someone who is religious and who has a beard. So he went. It was the owner of ‘Batterjee’ a well known business group in Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.
      Another guy with a beard got a good post in a British Co. The manager asked him ‘If he would be willing to shave off his beard ‘ He did so in order to please his Manager. ‘He lost his job before the probation period as the manager had the belief’ If this Muslim is ready to sell his faith for couple of dollars, he would also sell his honestly for another few dollars.
      Basically it’s Allah who is the doer of affairs. Man thinks he does, but in reality he is not. Everything is in the Hands of Allah. Not a leaf falls without His knowledge. Not a microprocessor functions without His will. So our label is our pride. If you have qualities you have your value. You are valued for your personality.
      One of the examples is the Sikh people in India. Wherever they are, in whatever post they get in, they keep their grown beard, additionally they have a turban. Be in Military or manager of a Co. and so on. Look at the Indian President, Manmohan Singh, he is in his dress codes wherever he goes. He recently visited Saudi Arabia and was a foreigner to address the Shoura Council. Same time look at many of our Muslim leaders, we want to imitate as much the western culture. We shout against Jews by our tongue but our heart loves their ways. We speak of Islam, but our heart is of Qaroon who loved wealth, or Haman.
      So to conclude. It’s a MYTH to think that being a Muslim with a beard is an obstacle to our progress. In fact Muslims were foremost and rulers of the world when they thought otherwise.
      Your role in life is your personality. That’s what people value you. If you are a sugar coated pill sour inside, people will spit away once they realize your truth. Whereas if you are a good and honest Muslim living to please Allah, Allah (s.a.w) will surely put love and a respect in the heart of others. A Meaning of Hadith is ‘ If someone fears Allah, everything else will fear him. If someone fears beside Allah, everything else will make him fear. Also If someone does a deed to please Allah, Allah (s.w.t) will put love in the hearts of others. While if someone does a deed to please people and displeases Allah. Allah (s.a.w) will put hatred in the heart of people about him.
      So this is a reality. We are all a traveler. A few days we travel through the lands and our return is unto Allah. So wise is he, who understood the purpose of life. Lucky is he who prepared for the long journey ahead. Fool will be he who wasted him time in fulfilling his own desires and forgot the endless life ahead of him. So this is it. So this is a fleeting life. We all grow grey even if don’t want to. We all get aged even if we wish to be young. This world is not the place to fulfilling desires, but to fulfill the needs and prepare for Akhirath. So until then, a believer will have some trials to live a life of a Muslim and to please Allah (s.a.w).

      Jazakallah Khair.

    Can anyone read this? And rate it?
    Hi, i’d appreciate if someone could read it and give me a few targets and stuff? The first bit has already been posted, so i’d appreciate if you read this first…

    After that its a bit of a blur, I remember clinging onto her arm, nuzzling into her bosom, and inhaling her lovely, musky smell. The next thing I know i’m sat on an uncomfortable bed, in a strange city with my so called dad grinning at me like an idiot.
    “My little Violet, all grown up, dealing with all of this so well..” he swoons. I stare back at him. Does he think i’m 5 or something? Then a loud outburst of a laugh, I look up at him, one eye brow slightly raised.
    “Geddit’? Violet, flowers, grow, grow up…?” I giggle, its not his fault i’m here, its not his fault mum d…about mum. Its no body’s fault. Its just one of those things that, happen. I hadn’t seen my dad in about 4 years. He moved away to Scarborough quite a while ago, he’d met Sophia, his girlfriend and he had a little boy and a little girl, both 4. Lilly and Jack. Lilly wore cute leggings and animal tops, and Jack wore shorts and designer t-shirts. I wore a black and white checkered hoodie, with some ripped shorts and charity shop converse.Sophia kept sighing at me whenever she saw me, and kept subtly dropping hints that we could go shopping some time, and get a whole new wardrobe…yeah right.

    I stay, sat on the stained bed. My dad had left the room and gone downstairs to tidy up after Lilly and Jack had decided to make a surprise ‘meal’ for him. The room was small, a tiny box room, and the paint was scraping off the walls, it was a horrible, sickly green, and the carpet a dull, sludgy grey. I grimaced as I peeked around. There was a little bedside table, opposite my rusty, metal bed frame, and a sticker of jesus pinned to the door. I smiled, mum was a keen believer in Jesus, but she never went to Church, or got baptised or anything,she said the Church was hipocrytes, and judged people, Jesus never judged people, and he loved the bad ones as much as the good ones.

    My mum, was a bit of a hippy, but not a totally freaky, green vegetable type, she wore baggy three-quarter jeans, with red and white stripy leg warmers, i knitted her when I was about 8, and some strange tie-dye type tops. She’d take me on Anti-War campaigns holding up big Peace signs, and banners, but she was no angel, i remember once, when I was about 4 or 5 we’d been kicked out of our house and we’re homeless, she stole a car drove off to a sea side town and then stole a tent from an OutDoors4You store, she told me we we’re camping, and it would be really fun,at the time it probably was, and even now looking back at it I cant help but smile. She seemed so magical, yet not un-predictable and crazy, just right.

    “Is she upstairs?” I heard Sophia whispered, I hadn’t seen her in about a year, not much had changed, I certanily hadn’t, and from what I could hear; she hadn’t either.
    “Is she still wearing that awful hoodie? Oh dear, you’d of think her mum could of maybe spent a little more time with her, you know, pampering her couldn’t you, i mean the poor girl, she isn’t exactly Americas Next Top Model as it is…”
    I closed my ears, I didn’t want to hear any more. She really thought she was Gods gift, Sophia had long black, glossy hair, right down to her bum, a thick, blunt fringe and was almost as skinny as a stick insect. I sighed, I didn’t know if she meant to be so offensive, or she genuinley just didn’t think before she spoke. I rolled over, pretending to be asleep as a loud banging came at the door. Too late, she swung open the door and caught my glance.
    “Hello! Oh my, you’ve grown! And your hair, looks…lovley…did your mum cut it for…i mean. Oh well, nevermind, i mean, Hey! Its such a bright sunny day, why dont you go outside, meet some kids from the neighbour hood?” she suggested. Thats another thing, the ‘neighbour hood’ was a bright, cheery, posh, snobby, secret seven kind of area, were everyone knew what you was up too, and it was normal for your nextdoor neighbours uncles cat to have a key to your house. I smiled, relentlessly. Hm, fat chance of me making friends with any one round here, I thought. I sighed, put on my Converse and slipped on my skull shoulder bag, and with that I was off. Out through the front door, and trying to find somewhere, less…cheery.

    The privet hedges and pastel coloured houses stood, row by row forming a confusing maze for someone new to the area.

I turned away, he was quite cute, and had

  16. QUESTION:
    Long hair in Islam, can anyone explain this since Moses, Arron, Jesus and Mohamed had braids?
    So it turns out that it was the Romans who insisted on hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even thought this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. 27 “‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.”

    Does the Bible say men should not have long hair? … Of course not, some parts of the law of Moses were repeated as commands of Jesus

    Numbers 6:5 (King James Version)

    5All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.

    Judges 16:13 (King James Version)

    13And Delilah said unto Samson, Hitherto thou hast mocked me, and told me lies: tell me wherewith thou mightest be bound. And he said unto her, If thou weavest the seven locks of my head with the web.

    Judges 16:19 (King James Version)

    19And she made him sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head; and she began to afflict him, and his strength went from him.
    (there’s hundreds of references)

    Al-Haafiz ibn Hajar (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

    What is indicated by the hadeeth is that his hair usually came down to his shoulders, and sometimes it was so long that he wore it in braids, as was narrated by Abu Dawood and al-Tirmidhi with a hasan isnaad from Umm Haani’ who said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) came to Makkah and he had four braids. This is to be understood as referring to times when he was so preoccupied that he could not take care of his hair for a long time, such as when travelling and the like. more and more

    Filipino mestizos or half-filipinos, how would you describe yourself and your kin?
    My thought:

    Im chinese-american-filipino mestizo with grey eyes, tanned skin and jet black hair.

    And I think all kinds of filipino mestizos are hot and our numbers will only keep growing since interracial dating is the common for filipinos now spread across the world.

    Then we shall be known as the new ilustrado class.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilustrado

    Then we shall rule the world mwahahaha.

    So what’s your description of yourself and your kind. What about your thoughts? ^_^ Peace Y’all

    • ANSWER:
      I’m chinese-spanish-filipino (tausug descent). Brown eyes and black hair. I agree that Filipino mestizos are hot, because we have a balanced mixture of EAST and WEST which makes us entirely unique. It is also because of our tremendous capacity to adapt to different cultures, personalities and the environment that we are in, that’s why our numbers will surely grow. Our resilience is what makes the Filipino mestizo and the Filipinos in general stand out. We can still manage to smile or laugh amidst all our problems, frustrations and disappointments and even in the face of dire circumstances. I’m proud to be a Filipino, I only hope that the government represents us well to avoid any negative impressions of the international community. Anyway, our race is definitely unique and blessed, a force to reckon with!!!

    • ANSWER:
      um, well i saw the movie, and he raises his arms a couple times and theres no hair, but just because he doesn’t have any hair under there, it doesn’t mean theres anything wrong with it. I bet if you made the money he did, you wouldn’t care if you had armpit hair or not.

    If your daughter still plays with dolls, do you think she is mature enough for marriage?
    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 8, Book 73, Number 151:
    Narrated ‘Aisha:
    I used to play with the dolls in the presence of the Prophet, and my girl friends also used to play with me. When Allah’s Apostle used to enter (my dwelling place) they used to hide themselves, but the Prophet would call them to join and play with me. (The playing with the dolls and similar images is forbidden, but it was allowed for ‘Aisha at that time, as she was a little girl, not yet reached the age of puberty.) (Fateh-al-Bari page 143, Vol.13)

    Sahih Bukhari, Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234:
    Narrated Aisha:
    The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Allright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, “Best wishes and Allah’s Blessing and a good luck.” Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah’s Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age.

    Sahih Muslim, Book 008, Number 3311:
    ‘A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.

    Sunan Abu Dawud, Book 41, Number 4914:
    Narrated Aisha, Ummul Mu’minin:
    When the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) arrived after the expedition to Tabuk or Khaybar (the narrator is doubtful), the draught raised an end of a curtain which was hung in front of her store-room, revealing some dolls which belonged to her.
    He asked: What is this? She replied: My dolls. Among them he saw a horse with wings made of rags, and asked: What is this I see among them? She replied: A horse. He asked: What is this that it has on it? She replied: Two wings. He asked: A horse with two wings? She replied: Have you not heard that Solomon had horses with wings? She said: Thereupon the Apostle of Allah (peace_be_upon_him) laughed so heartily that I could see his molar teeth.
    @ Luthador…I am a Registered Nurse who has given birth naturally to two children. I think I know a thing or two about the human body and reproduction.

    Why don’t you read up on the statistics of pregancy complications in girls younger than 19? Focus on Sierra Leone…I’m sure the way most of those people live is similar to how the 7th century Arabs lived….no access to medical care, lack of education, no antibiotics or antimicrobial soap, no ability to perform a C-section….
    @ Ocean….It just seems to me that Aisha was probably still a bit immature even at the time of the Khaibar expedition. I do know when that occurred….and that’s also when Muhammad acquired yet another wife: Safiya.

  23. QUESTION:
    Ramadan: Did you know that makeup is halal?
    Salam,

    Many women believe that we can’t wear makeup, but this is a lie and when a person tells you this, ask them to bring the daleel, or evidence from Quran or Sunnah, and not a FATWA.

    Kohl, or eyeliner is not forbidden for women to wear in Islam. There is not a hadith that forbids a woman from wearing kohl.

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

    Wear your white garments, for they are among your best garments, and shroud your dead in them. Among the best types of collyrium you use is antimony (Khol) it clears the vision and makes the hair sprout. [Dauod]

    The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

    “Apply antimony, for it clears the sight and makes the hair grow.” And he asserted that the Prophet had a collyrium-case from which he applied collyrium every night in three times each eye.
    Mindy: Show me qur’anic verses or hadis that says we can’t wear makeup around men? Show me qur’an or hadith that says we can only wear CERTAIN makeup!
    DrB: ADORNMENTS are breasts and your butt. Go and look up the definition. Where does it say, ” THOU SHALT NOT WEAR MAKEUP”?

    • ANSWER:
      makeup is just not pure vanity. I used to have severe acne growing up, almost like boils, the acne was painful and full red bumps that never surfaced enough to pop, and they hurt like bruises. I wore makeup to cover my face. If it makes me feel happy, and disguises my painful disease than I think makeup should be ok. I didnt want people to treat me any differently, specially like a leper. Also, I had a girl in my class that had vitiligo, the classmates used to tease her and call her “cowprint”, so she wore makeup to be one color. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitiligo

      I have another friend that have undereye circles so bad, that on days she doesnt wear makeup, people ask her if she has been in a fight. I think makeup is good for some people, i dont see how its haram if it helps you.

  26. QUESTION:
    What do you think of my poem?
    When I laid there beside you,
    Could you feel me there?
    My arms were wrapped around you,
    And I was stroking your hair.

    I was talking about all the good times,
    For me they were every single day.
    I wanted you to feel love and comfort,
    And happy in some way.

    I watched your every breath,
    And prayed that each one wasn't your last.
    The time we got to share together,
    Went by too quick...Too fast.

    I wanted you to wake up,
    Please Mum...Open your eyes.
    Tell me this is a nightmare,
    And not our goodbyes.

    As your last breath grew closer,
    We layer there peacefully together.
    My heart continually breaking,
    Because I wanted you forever.

    Then there it was,
    Your final breath of air.
    I didn't want to believe it,
    This is so cruel and not fair.

    I held your beautiful face,
    And prayed you'd breath again.
    I wasn't ready for you to go,
    I couldn't admit that this was the end.

    But then I realized that you were now in peace,
    And not suffering anymore.
    You were beginning the life of an Angel,
    And your body would no loner be sore.

    I held you close and squeezed you tight,
    And tried to say goodbye.
    I've lost my Mum and my number one best friend,
    All my heart could do is cry.

    I slowly got up,
    I wanted so much to stay.
    I leaned over and gave you one more kiss,
    It was so hard to walk away.

    Mum you are my entire world,
    And I miss you so very much.
    I wish I could feel your loveable cuddle,
    And your soft and gentle touch.

    But for now I have to wait,
    Until we meet again.
    You will always be in my heart and thoughts,
    My dear Mum and best friend.

    Always and Forever,
    Our hearts will always touch.
    Always and Forever,
    Your baby girl loves you so much.
    I wrote this after my mum got cancer, i was right next to her when she died
    thank you

    • ANSWER:
      *Tears*
      That was Beautiful
      I am so sorry to hear about your mum
      but what you said in your poem about her becoming
      an Angel it's true!

      Now I hope she is watching over you
      until you both meet once again
      and be together.

      I rate that a 10/10

  27. QUESTION:
    what do you think about this?[christians,jews&muslims)?
    [ I DID NOT WRITE THIS... MY MUSLIM FRIEND SHOWED IT TO ME. )

    Ok, I'm going to be very brief, yet very blunt, make a few points, so that I'm not asked why by my Creator, on the Day of Judgement, I was too terrified to even open my mouth and speak the truth, when it is God, and God alone that I should fear.

    With that in mind I'm going to try to be very diplomatic in what I say, all the while fully recognizing that no matter how diplomatic I am being someone is still probably going to get their feelings hurt. Understand it is not my intention to hurt anyone's feelings, but rather, speak the truth. And by truth, I mean that which is established, and can be proven, and that which is not relative or dependant upon emotional or mystical experiences, but reason and intellect.

    First, know that I am not trying to get anyone to become Muslim. Keep that very important sentence in mind, and at the end of this I'll tell you why I said that.

    But what I am trying to do is be a good Christian. I know that sounds odd coming from a Muslim, but be sure, this is my honest intention. I am trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ, a man who didn't pull any punches when he spoke. A man who wasn't afraid to walk into a temple full of hypocrites who were blaspheming God's house, and kick over their tables full of money.

    Now, here is a question that was once asked of me, that completely pulled the wool from my eyes, and left me in deep thought for quite some time. As Christians, you believe Jesus Christ is going to return. As Muslims, we believe Jesus Christ is going to return. But the question is, the ever so important question is, who will he recognize as his followers when he gets back?

    Consider that Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi, thus, he didn't eat any pork. Muslims don't eat pork. do Christians?

    Consider that Jesus was a Jewish Rabbi, and therefore grew a beard for religious reasons. Muslim men grow beards for religious reasons. Do Christians?

    Jesus, being a Jewish male, probably never entered the Temple without his yarmulke (skull cap) on. Muslims wear almost the exact same thing, A Kufi. Do Christians?

    Jesus's disciples kept daily prayer times. (Just check Acts chapter 3 verse 1 where Peter and John were "going up to the temple at the time of prayer...") Muslims keep daily prayer times. Do Christians?

    Jesus fasted for a little over a month (Matthew 4:2). Do Christians fast for a month? Muslims do. It's called the Month of Ramadan.

    Jesus greets people by saying "peace be with you." (John 20:23, amongst other places.) Do Christians greet each other with this greeting? Because Muslims do.

    Christians are ordered to not say they are going to do anything without first adding the phrase "If God wills" (James 4:15). Christians might do this once in a great while maybe, but Muslims don't so much as say they are going to get a glass of water without first saying "InshaAllah." which means "If God wills."

    Christian women are ordered to wear hair coverings (Corinthians chapter 11.) Do Christian women wear hair coverings? Because Muslim women do.

    So the point is, Muslims and Christians both believe that Jesus Christ is going to return. But the HUGE and IMPORTANT question is, who will he TRULY recognize as those striving to follow him? Christians or Muslims?

    Now I said I am not trying to make anyone become a Muslim. And I fully meant that. The point I'm making is simply REMINDING you Christians, of what you have forgotten in your own scripture. The Qu'ran calls itself a reminder. And that's all it is. It is reminding the Christians and Jews what they have forgotten to practice IN THEIR OWN RELIGION.

    So Christians, are you ready to follow Jesus TRULY and COMPLETELY? Are you ready to be REAL CHRISTIANS? Because in order to follow the EXAMPLE OF CHRIST, you must give up pork, establish daily prayer times, enjoin your women to wear hair coverings, grow a beard, wear a kufi, fast for at least 1 month a year, give charity, greet each other with "peace be with you", and start saying "If God wills" before everything you do.

    P.S. It wouldn't hurt to stop calling him JESUS, also, because JESUS is not his name. It is the LATINIZED version of his name, which in Hebrew was YESHUAH, or ESAU for short. ESAU is pronounced "EESAW" or "EESA" which is what he is called in the Qu'ran: "Isa ibn Maryam." (Jesus, the son of Mary.)

    My only desire is for you and me to be a better Christian.

    Salaam alaykum. (Peace be with you.)

  28. QUESTION:
    Armpit samples?
    Well lets say that if i was to put abit of fake wig hair under my armptis everynights and leave on tight.. will this actually make my armpit hairs grow quicker? longer over time if i do this? the actual self hair that is.

    What happens if i do this everydays 15hours a day for 30days with a few peace of fake wig hair under the armptis of ourse you might sweat but will the hait tangle together over time ? Im very keen to try this as i have a fenominal facination about armpits. And i like to experiement fetish to all.

    Good reply will get a very good ratings so good luck. and give as much information as posible if wanting to get the best rating for this.

    Experiment fetishnation are on the go here so good luck.
    Not always you might get infected by sweat if you had your armpits stuck onto another guys armpits and make it tight seal.. Because your not touching the skin.. but lets say your armpit hair is touching my armpit hair and then wait a few horus or even 24hours to see if the hair actually get tangle.. not so much of pressing the armptis together flat because it needs the hair to be touch with abit of room around. So what you think true or faults ?

    Let me know as im keen to fine out.

  29. QUESTION:
    What should I do with my hair?
    Hi there. I think it's time for a little change in style with my hair.

    I've had long dark hair(down to the middle of my back) for about 6 or 7 years now. I want to keep it long(I look like a goob with short hair), but I was thinking maybe doing something with the color? I mean.. I love my hair.. it's like a hazel-ish color with natural red streaks that are visible in the sunlight.. but I'm thinking about doing something a little crazy..?

    One thing I will never do is dye my hair black.. once the roots start growing in it looks really bad. It's really not fair for me to say that, though.. I'm just used to seeing all these people with FRIED hair from re-dying it black over and over again.. and using cheap stuff, too. I guess if I get it professionally done it won't look cheap.

    I'm thinking something with BLUE, but I'd have to go black for that to work, right?

    Your opinions are greatly appreciated. I'll post pics if it's necessary that I show my ugly mug! :)

    Peace.
    I'd also like to add that I'm a musician attending a prestigious music school, and I have a photo shoot with a new guitar from a company I'm looking at getting an endorsement from coming up soon..

    So, I don't need to worry about things like normal jobs, interviews, etc.
    I was definitely not planning on doing anything blue with my current color. :) That would indeed look bad! haha
    Here's a video of something that might be cool.. what do you think?

    Look at the guitar player with the white guitar.. Steve Vai..

      Hey!It seems a real pity to dye your hair because it sounds really nice but why not get a different long haired hair cut???Dying it blue might really not please you.

    Here's one that's just plain silly! I was trying to have some fun (some truth in it). Do you like it (at all)?
    mom you didn’t raise me right
    i can’t see it any other way
    i have all these awful tendencies
    and the most wretched types of behavior
    mom you just didn’t raise me right

    i curse and fuss over the smallest details
    a broken pencil lead. damn and as if it mattered
    why don’t i somehow grow up and out of it?
    what is wrong with me anyway?

    because what i can see
    i have mostly dealt with but
    what i cannot see is what you planted inside me
    during those formative years
    with the little pats on the head and the frowns

    i have the most awful tendencies
    and you say well tendencies will not harm you
    you needn’t always act upon them

    but i truly question myself
    why do i act the way i do?
    who can i blame? my swim coach or
    my fourth grade teacher?

    why am i discontented?
    why can’t i just live in peace?
    my mother raised me on dr spock
    my mom didn’t raise me right

    look at you!
    your hair’s all a mess!
    sit up to the table and eat your food
    and don’t lean back in the chair
    that’s good upbringing but only
    reinforces character
    the person was shaped
    long before his or her teens

    oh frank
    isn’t he just
    the most adorable baby
    in the world?

    look at the little darling
    why do you suppose it is
    babies throw up all the time? and

    he’s getting to be a big boy now
    looks more like his father every day
    chip off the old block
    that’s for sure
    boy’s a good football player
    good athlete
    no mama’s boy
    not this one

    yea just like his old man really
    and where dad is just clueless
    is how mom’s got me firmly in her clutches
    and the seeds were planted
    a long long time ago

    • ANSWER:
      I hesitate to accept the surmise - that mothers cause or cure the "faults" of their children - 100% of the time. I'm sure there are bad mothers - where their children were strong enough to overcome the influence. As well as great mothers - who produced children that were just "seeds of the devil". Even though parents lay the groundwork - the individual child has the choice on how the seed develops. I guess - I do not like to play the "blame game" (even though it does have great influence) ♥

    That's why we go to thug mansion
    That's the only place where thugs get in free and you gotta be a G
    ... at thug mansion

    [Verse One: 2Pac]
    A place to spend my quiet nights, time to unwind
    So much pressure in this life of mine, I cry at times
    I once contemplated suicide, and woulda tried
    But when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma’s eyes
    No one knows my struggle, they only see the trouble
    Not knowin it’s hard to carry on when no one loves you
    Picture me inside the misery of poverty
    No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived
    Prayin hard for better days, promise to hold on
    Me and my dawgs ain’t have a choice but to roll on
    We found a family spot to kick it
    Where we can drink liquor and no one bickers over trick shit
    A spot where we can smoke in peace, and even though we G’s
    We still visualize places, that we can roll in peace
    And in my mind’s eye I see this place, the players go in fast
    I got a spot for us all, so we can ball, at thug’s mansion

    [Chorus: J. Phoenix + (Nas)]
    Every corner, every city
    There’s a place where life’s a little easy
    Little Hennessy, laid back and cool
    Every hour, cause it’s all good
    Leave all the stress from the world outside
    Every wrong done will be alright (I wanna go)
    Nothin but peace (I wanna go) love (I wanna go nigga)
    And street passion, every ghetto needs a thug mansion

    [Verse Two: Nas]
    A place where death doesn’t reside, just thugs who collide
    Not to start beef but spark trees, no cops rollin by
    No policemen, no homicide, no chalk on the streets
    No reason, for nobody’s momma to cry
    See I’m a good guy, I’m tryin to stick around for my daughter
    But if I should die, I know all of my albums support her
    This whole year’s been crazy, asked the Holy Spirit to save me
    Only difference from me and Ossie Davis, gray hair maybe
    Cause I feel like my eyes saw too much sufferin
    I’m just twenty-some-odd years, I done lost my mother
    And I cried tears of joy, I know she smiles on her boy
    I dream of you more, my love goes to Afeni Shakur
    Cause like Ann Jones, she raised a ghetto king in a war
    And just for that alone she shouldn’t feel no pain no more
    Cause one day we’ll all be together, sippin heavnly champagne
    where angels soar, with golden wings in thug’s mansion

    [Chorus w/o Nas]

    [Verse Three: 2Pac]

    Drippin peppermint Schnapps, with Jackie Wilson, and Sam Cooke
    Then some lady named Billie Holiday
    Sang sittin there kickin it with Malcolm, ’til the day came
    Little LaTasha sho’ grown
    Tell the lady in the liquorstore that she’s forgiven, so come home
    Maybe in time you’ll understand only God can save us
    When Miles Davis cuttin lose with the band
    Just think of all the people that you knew in the past
    that passed on, they in heaven, found peace at last
    Picture a place that they exist, together
    There has to be a place better than this, in heaven
    So right before I sleep, dear God, what I’m askin
    Remember this face, save me a place, in thug’s mansion

    [Chorus]

    Snow

    by Julia Alvarez

    Our first year in New York we rented a small apartment with a Catholic school nearby, taught by the Sisters of Charity, hefty women in long black gowns and bonnets that made them look peculiar, like dolls in mourning. I liked them a lot, especially my grandmotherly fourth-grade teacher, Sister Zoe. I had a lovely name, she said, and she had me teach the whole class how to pronounce it. Yo-landa. As the only immigrant in my class, I was put in a special seat in the first row by the window, apart from the other children, so that Sister Zoe could tutor me without disturbing them. Slowly, she enunciated the new words I was to repeat: laundromat, cornflakes, subway, snow.

    Soon I picked up enough English to understand holocaust was in the air. Sister Zoe explained to a wide-eyed classroom what was happening in Cuba. Russian missiles were being assembled, trained supposedly on New York City. President Kennedy, looking worried too, was on the television at home, explaining we might have to go to war against the Communists. At school, we had air-raid drills: An ominous bell would go off and we’d file into the hall, fall to the floor, cover our heads with our coats, and imagine our hair falling out, the bones in our arms going soft. At home, Mami and my sisters and I said a rosary for world peace. I heard new vocabulary: nuclear bomb, radioactive fallout, bomb shelter. Sister Zoe explained how it would happen. She drew a picture of a mushroom on the blackboard and dotted a flurry of chalk marks for the dusty fallout that would kill us all.

    The months grew cold, November, December. It was dark when I got up in the morning, frosty when I followed my breath to school. One morning, as I sat at my desk daydreaming out the window, I saw dots in the air like the ones Sister Zoe had drawn—random at first, then lots and lots. I shrieked, “Bomb! Bomb!” Sister Zoe jerked around, her full black skirt ballooning as she hurried to my side. A few girls began to cry.

    But then Sister Zoe’s shocked look faded. “Why, Yolanda dear, that’s snow!” She laughed. “Snow.”

    “Snow,” I repeated. I looked out the window warily. All my life I had heard about the white crystals that fell out of American skies in the winter. From my desk I watched the fine powder dust the sidewalk and parked cars below. Each flake was different, Sister Zoe had said, like a person, irreplaceable and beautiful.

  40. QUESTION:
    Critique a very short piece of writing?
    I was bored and listening to Taylor Swift when I wrote this. I know it’s not great and some sentences are awkward, but what do y’all think?

    Grey clouds shielded the sun’s gentle rays from reaching earth. The air smelled strongly of unfallen rain and morning dew. In the distance, a black crow let out a call of miserable loneliness.

    I stepped out of the car and placed my feet on the mushy grass, feeling the water seep out beneath my toes. I slammed the car door-a harsh sound that echoed in such a quiet place.

    I weaved my way to the back of the cemetery, passing by many a forgotten soul. I stopped when I was under an old weeping willow that was forever draped over a pond.

    Wrapping my arms around myself, I leaned against the tree for support.
    I had suffered many burdens, but for some reason, whenever I came here, I always felt at peace. It was odd, but it was true. While the outside world continued to grow and change, the cemetery remained the same day after day.

    I had to fight the urge to cringe and run away from the one grave that actually meant something to me. A gust of bitterly cold wind bit at my cheeks, and I hugged myself tighter, gripping onto warmth and security. I knelt down next to a grave that was beginning to show the first signs of erosion. The words were slowly fading from the rock, words that had once burned with passion before me.

    Staring at the words, I found that it was harder to remember you. Your blue eyes no longer had that spark, your golden hair no longer shone like the sun, and your pink lips had lost their rosy edge.

    But I had promised you I would never forget you.

    I pulled out a tissue from my pocket just as the tears began to slide down my cheeks. I sat there, alone, sobbing for what would’ve been, what could’ve been, and what should’ve been.

    I gulped down air and began to speak, my voice barely above a whisper. “These days, I haven’t been sleeping. Staying up, playing back myself leaving. And I think about summer, all the times I watched you laughing from the passenger side. I realized I loved you in the fall…and then the cold came, the dark days when fear crept into my mind. You gave me all your love and all I gave you was a goodbye.” The words came out freely, as if they were taking over my entire being.

    “So this is me swallowing my pride, standing in front of you, saying I’m sorry for that night,” And then I revealed the secret I’d sworn never to admit. “…And I go back to December all the time.”

    I stood up. With each step I took away from the grave, the pain faded. It was as if confessing the truth after so many years eased my troubled soul. And, just as the words faded from the rock, the memory of you, of us, was slowly leaving my mind. But, I’ll never forget what it was I had done that December night…

    After all, one can never forget the night they take the life of their one and only.
    It’s based off of her song Back to December if anyone didn’t pick up on that.
    Turtelz- well it’s relatively short as opposed to posting a novel. :)
    I mean this in the nicest way possible, but I might be more inclined to take advice from someone talking about writing if they bothered to use proper grammar and capitalization. Thank you, though. Short paragraphs are kind of a bad habit to break, because that’s how I naturally like to space things out.

    • ANSWER:
      It’s really good, I am majoring in creative writing in college. And I actually showed one of my professor’s your piece and he absolutely loved it! He did say that if you added some sentence variety, such as new sentence starters, the piece could really prosper!
      Great writing and keep on going!

  41. QUESTION:
    Call it Beatles rumor, call it Beatles myth, either way can you help with this?
    Hey Beatles fans!! I need some clarification regarding the Beatles. I am hoping you can help! Please answer the following rumors, myths, etc in regards to Beatles for me!! You dont need to provide any links for your answers, I trust you! Can you answer the following?

    1) On the Abbey Road Cover, the whole “Paul is Dead” theory…is there ANY truth to that??

    2) Do to Band and or personal differences, which album was the hardest for the Beatles to make?? (i’ve heard the White Album was….not sure if its true though.)

    3) Is “lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” really named after LSD? (I’ve heard it was named after a kingergarten drawing from Lennon’s son)

    4) In the song “Lovely Rita”…at the end…there is sort of a slapping noise and Lennon is moaning, is that related to Masterbation?

    5) Were the Beatles the first Rock band to grow their hair long? If not..who was??

    Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions! Beatles ROCK! Peace and Love.

    • ANSWER:
      No there is no truth to it whatsoever.. Paul McCartney is alive and well as he has been since the rumour began in 1966.. There has never been a look a like.. McCartney is McCartney

      You are correct on this, though I am sure the tensions between the members never went completely away after the white album.. Yes there was rising tensions within the band for sure.. To the point where both McCartney and Lennon would be recording in different studios all together.. This was also the time Ringo Starr went on “Vacation” as he believed his role too be somewhat inadequate to the other members roles..

      It’s up for argument… John’s Son Julian had a friend in Nursery School named Lucy where it has been said it was inspired by her.. John had stated in the past it was about a woman named Lucy Cook, who he had been dating at the time.. and of course it was pointed out that the LSD did in fact reference the drug but it was never truly confirmed until the early 2000′s when Paul stated that of course the song in someway had been inspired by the drug..

      I highly doubt it..

      It was around the sametime as the stones.. Didn’t I answer this for you before?? Lol…

    My(almost)boyfriend left me because of what my “friends” said,I want him back,any advise,tips,opinions?!?
    My friends told complete lies to him,they said that I said that he was ugly and would never get a girlfriend.We had a huge fight (still fighting,not me and him,”friends” vs mine and me) and in the end,he completely just gave up after promising to never leave me alone.We are both 14 and we were so close to being with each other! I miss him so much that it hurts..I’m going through told of issues besides this..my mom has a brain condition,parents divorced,not many friends left,and if I keep on feeling upset..well my dad said I have to take anti-depressants from feeling so upset all the time.I swear I’m going to grow grey hair from just the stress with my mother.This was the kick to my stress and depression.I know I’m too young to feel depressed,but I know I am. This boy used to make me feel so safe..he made me feel like everything was going to be alright for a while, as long as he was there. He promised me that he would never leave me alone and that he wouldn’t hurt me. I truely believe that we still can save this friendship/relationship! I really do..I dont know how though..I know that our “friends” are poisoning him with nasty thoughts and mean words against me. I see them gossiping about me all the time..they look at me and whisper at others and the other kids look at me and whisper back! I dont know what I ever did to diserve this kind of torture! I have never done anything to them that would push them that far..Anyway..back to my boy..anyone..if you can understand me..I care about him so much..he made me feel good for once..made me smile when things got horribly bad..I told him everything..poured my soul out to him..so did he to me..he was my best friend, I could tell him anything! He would assure me when I thought I did something wrong.When he held me my worrying mind was soothed and I felt at peace for a bit. He was so nice to me..he would try to understand what I was going through and try to help me forget about it for a while.And thats what I love about him..he cared..at least I think..he cared enough to listen to me cry and he cared enough to like a girl who isn’t so pretty. For my school..he was so different..he isn’t a pervert..he doesn’t bulley people..he’s sweet and kind and himself..I guess you can call me a horomonal teenager..but I dont care.I have genuine feelings for this boy..for this moment in time..I do! I really do..Please help me with trying to rekindle my lost love and fight these girls away! What are your thoughts on this situation? I’m already ignoring the girls and him..should I talk to him? If so, how?What should I say?In person,Facebook,or text?

    PLEASE HELP FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!
    Thank you
    ALSO!
    I didn’t include that I have never said those things at all. They actually said those things..kinda..they would say “Hahaha! He’s so weird..” or “Hahah he’s..cute..but a baby cute..not hot”

    • ANSWER:
      Are you sure you didnt say these things about him? the truth is always important..

      put these friends in the bin and tell them you despise their attitude towards him (stick up for him!) and i promise he will come back.

      Friends are no friends if they make you look bad and talk about you.. and lie behind your back.

      EFFORT is the biggest and most powerful word in love.. if you show the effort that you want him back and tell him they lied and made it up.. Tell him they those kids were jealous of him because he is a great guy.

      Leave him a text and tell him what i just said.. then leave it. Next time you see him try to speak to him and show him you like him.

      Trust me it will work.

      Best wishes :)

  43. QUESTION:
    do you mind reading 3 poems which follow each other? or leaving your comments?
    Runaway teardrops, salty, warm
    Sky blue eyes weather the storm
    Ebony hair tied back neatly
    Propriety – lost, completely
    Succulent lips, parted and soft
    Alone on a blanket, in the loft
    Lingering memories beckon
    With her, a force, yet, to reckon
    A bottle of wine draws her eyes
    She thinks for a moment, then sighs
    Grasping, twisting, intent, benign
    Raspberry shades, liquid design
    Relaxation, complete resigned
    At full speed, ahead, or rewind?
    Numbing sensations deliver
    Reflexively, make her shiver

    Part 2

    Enters, below the loft, with stealth
    Muscles tight, with an air of wealth
    Steel grey eyes in weathered face
    Something drew him into this place

    Heart beat quickening, strangely calm
    Reminiscent of senior prom
    In light now dimming scrutinized
    The situation analyzed

    Attitude – room for improvement
    From over head, hearing movement
    Above in the lonely old barn loft
    As ladder he climbed, his heart grew soft

    On seeing white skin, ebony hair
    He gapes with a stupefied stare
    Lifting her gently carries her down
    Fragile creature, he wears a frown

    Lays her down on soft satin spread
    Kisses her, gently, on pale forehead
    With restraint, he turns down the light
    Closes the door, whispers good night

    Part 3
    Awaking, stretching mind aflame
    …Satin bedclothes touch her fingers
    …Recollection, desire, lingers
    Her heart, unraveled, not the same

    The walls around her oddly strange
    …Not sure of how she came to be
    …Or if she had the strength to flee
    Her muddled thoughts, now, rearrange

    Distinct presence, coffees scent
    …Tap on door, transposing feelings
    …Door swings open, her head’s reeling
    Eyes lock, reaching slowly, hand lent

    Disheveled hair, rumpled clothing
    …To the shower, emotionless led
    …Laid out – a gown – on satin bed
    warmth washing, away, her loathing

    Fresh and clothed in gown of cotton
    …No makeup on, hair tousled, damp
    …Appearing a delightful scamp
    Gazes now, her pain forgotten

    In silent deferential peace
    …They slowly sip, mugs of coffee
    …The atmosphere simple, carefree
    She smiles warmly, soul pains, release
    I had intended to add more to this at some point but have not done so yet.

    But at the same time, I feel grateful that I can live and grew up in a society where you cannot be arrested arbitrarily, where you can speak against the government, form own parties, go on the street as a woman without covering your hair and having the same rights as men and with the certainty that no one can knock in your door at night.
    People seem to forget that this is not the standard, but rather an exception and they take their freedom and rights for granted, instead of joining a political party or the peace movement, use their right to protest against injustice or help in some way to maintain a free society (England in my case).
    Don’t they see that even free societies can be corrupted if they are not protected?
    butterbean, wrong. I think we disagree on who protects democracy. And please try to behave like an adult and stop stalking me. No offence, but this is unacceptable behaviour and really annoying.
    thanks for the interesting answers, big woof and carmelia. I think you got some very valid points.

    • ANSWER:
      They take it for granted because most haven’t ever faced the chance of losing it. Most people live in the ‘it won’t happen to me’ world. They don’t remember the blood shed that gave them their rights. They don’t realize that those rights can be taken by force if enough people refuse to defend them if necessary. It saddens me to think that a lot of good men have given their life, for democracy and freedom for some ungrateful people. But let them lose ‘one of their rights’ and they will be the first ones to cry, even though they do not respect their rights nor are they willing to defend them. I can’t explain other people. I know I am very grateful for the rights I have and respect every man who has served to give me these rights. Hats off to all defender’s of democracy.

  45. QUESTION:
    Care to read? Excerpt?
    Sorry that it ends in a weird spot, I still have to write more. And if you see (blank) it’s cuz I haven’t thought of a name yet. lol. This is from that same story that I posted before with Ramla and Victoria and the link to a video I made about it. But yeah.

    ***

    The city of Madonia was one that mermen and mermaids from all across the ocean admired and respected. It was the most impressive capital of a kingdom in the west; held in a dizzyingly large underwater mountain, its vast number of caves and tunnels were enough to get even the most bearings-sensitive merperson lost. In fact, many believed that this aspect of the city was designed on purpose to prevent it from being overtaken during the Ocean Wars. But as useful as getting newcomers and possible spies lost was hundreds of years ago, it was now merely a constant headache and frustration to tourists. The only knowledge they had of Madonia was that the palace took up a large portion of the mountain’s upper peaks, and that in the center of the mountain was the large hollowed out area known as the Common, from which hundreds of tunnels went out. This information, however, did little to stop the many visitors who couldn’t afford a guide from finding themselves lost and in a panic. The residents of Madonia were used to bumping into these poor souls in unexpected places and pointing them in the right direction.

    On one particular afternoon there were more tourists than usual. The entire city was thronged with thousands of visitors hoping to witness the return of Madonia’s prince after an absence of six years. At fourteen, Prince Gabriel had been sent to the neighboring kingdom of (blank). A peace treaty had existed between the two kingdoms for many years, but rumors had begun to circulate that Madonia would soon break it. The king was appalled at such a rumor. To silence it, he sent his son to (blank) to prove his loyalty. The (blank) courts had fascinated the young prince. He requested to stay longer than planned, and the king gave a hearty consent. He would do whatever was necessary to prevent war. Time flew by, the treaty was strengthened, and six years had passed before Prince Gabriel could return home. But finally his return had arrived, sending the Madonian kingdom into a frenzy. Just about everyone was excited as could be. Everyone but one.

    Esmeralda sat at her caveroom’s window, peeking through the pulled back curtain into the Common below. Countless merpeople were cheering and laughing as they waved colorful banners back and forth. The entire city was celebrating, but Esmeralda did not have the heart to join them. Sighing, she let the curtain fall back into place and swam to her bed, where she pulled the seaweed blanket close around her.

    “Esmeralda! Em-dear!”

    Not now, Em thought, pulling the blanket over her head. She didn’t want to deal with her mother today.

    But want her or not, Nazli was always sure to show up. She entered her daughter’s caveroom and frowned when she saw her still in bed.

    “Oh, Esmeralda, how could you not be up already? It’s the middle of the day! Come now, darling, rise and shine!”

    The blanket was suddenly snatched away. Esmeralda gasped out of surprise, and nearly gasped again when she saw her mother floating above her not two inches away.

    “Time to get ready!” she exclaimed joyfully, her smile wider than ever.

    “I think I’d rather stay in bed.” Esmeralda’s shaky voice signaled that she had either just been crying or was about to start. Nazli was too distracted to notice.

    “Nonsense. Darling, Prince Gabriel is coming home today! The merman you’re engaged to, remember? Any other mermaid would be practically ecstatic if they were in your fins. You can be so strange sometimes, Em-dear. But come, sit here at the mirror so I can do your hair. There you go. You know, just the other day (blank) was telling me what a lovely young mermaid you’ve grown into. Her daughters just turn green with envy when they look at your beautiful brown curls! Naturally I told (blank) that you get those curls from my side of the family. Everyone says that if my hair were brown and not black, we’d look just like twins. Isn’t that divine? But even I can’t take credit for your tail. No one has that turquoise color on my side. No, I believe you get that from one of your father’s great aunts. I’m glad you got her tail color and nothing else, though, because she was certainly an ugly mermaid. Oh, stop fidgeting, dear, or I’ll have to pin your hair all over.”

    Throughout her mother’s entire ridiculous speech, Esmeralda had sat silently and obediently. The only outward appearance of unhappiness were her downcast hazel eyes. If one could truly see Em’s soul by looking into them, they would see the torment and agony that she was experiencing.

    oh, what’s wrong with my dad!?!!?

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a dad,
      Your dad wants you to succeed in life. He sees in you his mistakes AND whatever he thinks you need to change to be a success. Dads are not Moms. We can’t act like one and doubtful will ever try for long. Believe me, he wants the best for you overall. But we don’t always know how to express that without complaining or yelling.
      Try to be respectful. I know its hard but its for your own good. Sometimes you have to give allot of what you want in order for it to be given back. Sad but true.

      Good luck,

Grow Your Hair Long

Emo was a sub genre of punk rock, very popular in the ’80s. In time the music became associated with a certain style of fashion. In todays world emo is associated more with style than with music. The typical emo look is tight jeans, figure hugging t shirts, long fringe (bangs), straight hair dyed black or blond, studded belts and canvas sneakers. Amongst the numerous hairstyles.

Most popular amongst those who follow emo hairstyles is the scene hair. Which can be determined by shaggy, choppy or blunt. If you are also interested in sporting the scene hair look go through the next few lines and pick up some helpful hints to do your own scene hairstyles.
How To Get Scene Hair

* In order to have scene layered haircut, you need to grow your hair long enough, so that the bangs reach at least to your cheeks. If you want long bangs, you need to make sure that the hair goes past your chin.

* You can either get your hair cut professionally or use your own expertise.

If you are cutting the hair yourself then taper the bangs so that they cover only one eye.

As for the rest of your hair cut the layers very blocky or choppy.

* The back of the hair should not touch your shoulders. It has to be kept hardly a few inches below your hairline, at the nape of your neck.

You will need to straighten your hair if needed. If your hair is straight then you are lucky and can skip this step.

Next you will want to color your hair. The best colors are black or bleach blond or both.

After getting your hair colored you should add streaks. For blond hair blue or pink are good colors, for black hair it would be good to go with blond streaks.

* You can style your emo scene hair further. Using wax, separate the layers piece by piece. With wax covered fingers, and pull down on the hair. The layers will stand separate from one another, looking hot. Use a light hairspray to make the hair stay in place.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do you get your hair to grow long?
    I have short hair that just barely reaches my shoulders and split ends and split hairs all over the place.I was told to shave it all off and let it grow back from scratch but is there another way to grow your hair long? I dont think I could handle cutting my hair any shorter my hair grows VERY slowly and is weak and brittle and breaks easy its dry and thin I need help asap has anyone heard of hot oil treatments? you buy them from stores do they work?

    • ANSWER:
      I’m a qualified hair dresser, What you need to start with is to get your hair to a healthy state, there is a product you can try, it is a pure keratin conditioner, if you think about your hair as a roof and the structure of your hair is like the tiles at the moment your tiles are up right causing your hair to break and be brittle, you need to get the tiles flat so they are healthy and shiny, you could try your local hair college to buy this product from its about £15-20 i know its alot but it is good, the other thing you could try is when you wash your hair, don’t use hot oil as it only works on the surface hair you need to get moisture through the whole shaft of your hair, shampoo your hair as normal, then starting from the bottom of your hair get the conditioner and massage it through, then go up the hair till you get to the roots don’t put too much conditioner on the roots as you produce your own oil and it may make your hair greasy, then once you have put the conditioner all over, put your hair and scalp in a plastic bag, tie it then put a warm towel around your head, what the plastic bag will do is keep the moisture on the hair, and the warm towel will help the proceedure, leave it on for about 30 mins, once the time is up take the towel and bag from your head and comb through your hair, then you need to rinse it off with a luke warm water, as heat will still damage the hair and warm-cold will smooth the hair down. i’d do this 1-2 a week, you should find a difference straight away, also stay away from your straighteners for as long as you can, or your hair will not grow as the heat will just carry on splitting it. I’d then have it cut every 4-6 weeks this will take the dead away without going to extremes of shaving it off, then when your hair is healthy it will grow, it will take 6-12 months before you see a change but with patience you will get through it, if you need to contact me you can.

  2. QUESTION:
    How do you grow your hair long?
    My hair is short and i want it to grow longer. It is past my shoulders a little bit but not that much. I don’t wanna buy like shampoos to grow my hair but what can i do to make it grow longer? Also, my hair is thick and curly

    Bonus: When you get out of the shower do you comb your hair wet? Because i heard that your not suppose to because it removes hairs that aren’t supposed to be removed so is that true?

    • ANSWER:
      get your hair trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks. what i do.. when i have time, i look at my hair for split ends and cut them off.

      try not to put any hair gel and/or spray.

      try not to use an iron (straightener and/or curler) because it will damage the hair and make it dryer.

      get a shampoo that will keep your hair healthy from ROOT TO TIP (head and shoulders definitely helps because it goes from the skin of your head to the ends of your hair.. and that will always keep your hair healthly)

      don’t always use the same shampoo and conditioner. switch every time you run out of the bottle because switching brands will keep your hair healthy by using new vitamins. so switching brands everytime you run out of the bottle is like feeding your hair vegies and fruits. lol.

      good luck! i hope i helped!

      oh yeah.. bonus: yes, you’re NOT supposed comb your hair right outta the shower. so either use your fingers or use wide comb teeth like this:

  4. 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.

  5. QUESTION:
    how to grow your hair long and healthy?
    i just cut my hair and its 3 inches past my shoulders.
    i had alot of spilt ends so i just cut them off.
    i have always wanted really long hair and i need some tips
    on how i can make my hair grow long and healthy?

    : )
    i have to shower every day or every second day.
    my hair gets slightly greasy looking easily.
    noo, my hair is not in layers.

    • ANSWER:
      I also am in the process of growing my hair out and here are some useful tips:
      1) Condition the lower half of your hair with a nice creamy conditioner. I love Garnier’s line. They smell nice, are relatively cheap, and have definitely helped my hair feel softer and tangle less.
      2) Use a heavy duty leave in conditioner on your ends (the bottom 1-2 inches) since this is where most damage occurs.
      3) Avoid heat styling tools including blow dryers, flat and curling irons, hot rollers, etc. If you MUST use these, use the lowest heart setting, never use them on soaking wet hair, and always use a protective spray beforehand.
      4) Try to keep your hands off your hair during the day, as constantly touching it will make it weak, dry, and frayed.
      5) Never brush your hair while it’s wet. Only use a wide-toothed comb.
      6) Get a 1/4 inch trim every 3 months or so to help keep hair healthy.
      7) Drinking lots of water and getting enough protein are also important for strong, shiny hair

      Hope these tips help. They’ve done wonders for me! :) Good luck!

  6. QUESTION:
    Doest the shampoo that says it helps you grow your hair long faster work?
    I read lots of magazines and at the end there is always an ad about this shampoo or something that helps you grow your hair out long faster and stronger. Ive never had my hair longer than like an inch past my shoulders. Ive always wanted that long flowing hair but my hair grows too slow. Everytime I try, I just get impatient and just cut it. Do you know if it works or do you know any other ways for my hair to grow out faster?

    • ANSWER:
      Shampoos are topical, meaning they work on the surface of the scalp. The hair follicle which is inside the scalp has to be nourished, that is where the growing takes place. The type of hair we all have is hereditary and it is usually on the mothers. The best You can do is use professional hair products and have your ends trimmed to keep the ends blunt. Remember that whatever you put in your mouth will show in your skin, hair and nails. So eat healthy. Stick to one hairstylist, don’t jump around and develop a relationship. Good luck

  9. QUESTION:
    What are some tips on how to grow your hair long?
    I have medium length hair and just seems like it NEVER grows longer. It’s been about this length for about 4 to 5 months now. What might be some tips, besides conditioning treatments, to make it grow longer? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      From prior experience, you have to get your hair trimmed about every 6 weeks. Not chopped off, just a little trim and it keeps the dead and split ends away and helps your hair grow longer and faster. My Aunt is a hair stylist and she say to get your hair trimmed every six weeks and keep it healthy.
      Does this help?
      There isn’t any magical serum or anything to help it grow. You just have to keep it healthy (:

  11. QUESTION:
    How do you grow your hair long fast?
    i want my hair to grow longer by august, how can it grow faster? i have blonde hair that is straight

    • ANSWER:
      Hair won’t grow any faster than it will grow. To keep it healthly and help it grow – don’t cut it, get a 1/4″ trim every 6 weeks – this will keep the ends from breaking.

      To be honest, it probably won’t grow that much by August – so just get extensions

    • ANSWER:
      it doesnt sound stupid, i want the answer to this desperately tooo :(
      go to a health shop and buy a pill called ‘hair, skin and nails’ its not too expensive and not full of chemicals and is not dangerous, just make sure it contains silica, also many brands make this pill. brush your hair with a boar bristle brush before you go to bed to increase scalp circulation, get lots of iron and proteins from meats- it is one of the biggest helpers in hair growth! goodluck :)

  15. QUESTION:
    Is it true that your hair grows longer and faster when pregnant?…How long did yours grow?
    With my two pregnancies I noticed that my hair grew beautifully and longer!
    I’m 14 weeks pregnant now and still wonder if that is true or false…Is it?
    How long did your hair grow with your pregnancy?
    Thanks…;)

    • ANSWER:
      it is true due to both prenatal vitamins and hormones. My hair is growing sooo fast but it originally was very thick and now it falls out pretty fast. not like i’m going bald or anything just it’s thinned a bit down to what would be considered “normal thickness”. sucks for our poor shower drain! this happens to alot of women (thick hair gets thinner, thin hair gets thicker) also some women experience a change in hair texture (straight hair gets wavy or curly, curly hair gets straighter) and some even experience changes in hair color (may get lighter or darker)

  16. QUESTION:
    How long did it take to grow your hair?
    So I went natural in August 2008 and after a year of wearing my hair out I have decided to keep my hair in protective styling so that I can grow my hair longer. My question is if anyone has ever cut their hair ALL off (i cut my hair to about an inch) how long was your hair two years later and what can I do to grow my hair long in one year?

    • ANSWER:
      From 2005-2007 my hair went from bc to mid back then fell out and was cut in the fall of ’07 in ’08 it fell out and in ’09 it was touching my waist then its broken off (due to negligence) to below bra strap, and I’m regrowing it, its already grew about an inch since October 9th.

  17. QUESTION:
    how do you grow your hair long but fast?
    i have medium length hair that is thick, frizzy & hard to handle. im looking to grow it long but in a quick amount of time. hopefully a little less than a month.
    what type of products should i use? what types of treatments? anything else that will help?
    i use:

    ion- moisture solutions Miracle leave in conditioner.
    infusium23 repair & renew leave in treatment.
    pantene medium/thick intensive restoration treatment.
    i also do take hair vitiams that have biotin.

    • ANSWER:
      Well firstly, I know this is obvious, but don’t use heat on it! No straighteners, hair driers, curlers etc. If you don’t like wearing your hair natural like that, then I highly recomend pantene straighten and smooth creme. I have thick, frizz hair too, and this stuff does magic for it. It gets rid of all those flyaways, plus doesn’t leave that nasty producty feel. Also to get rid of frizz try using a shampoo and conditioner geared towards dry hair, even if you don’t consider it dry. I like aussie stuff. Put the conditioner everywhere, not just ends!

      Anyway I’m starting to ramble so back to long hair!
      Everyone says your hair grows faster when you trim it every other month or so, but they’re wrong! Your supposed to trim it to get rid of split ends, so your hair will be healthy. However its easier just to not get split ends in the first place. Sounds impossible but its not! I haven’t vut my hair in seven months and I have hardly any. I use bed head ego boost split end mender and leave in conditioner. It works amazing. I just use it everytime I get out of the shower. Its a little pricy, but lasts a long time.
      Try to use some split end product though. That way your hair will be healthy when its long!

  21. QUESTION:
    whats the fastest way to grow your hair long?
    i really need to grow my hair long but what is the fastest way to grow long hair

    • ANSWER:
      Eat sea kelp (sushi or supplements) or use sea kelp conditioner. Sea kelp contains lots of keratin, which is what hair and nails are made of. Every month or so have your hairstylist go through and ‘dust’ off dead ends (cut less than 1/8 off). I’ve heard rumors that milk and jello help.

      I hoped this helped and wasn’t a bunch of hogwash.

    Is it true that growing your hair too long affects how tall you grow?
    I heard that if your hair is too long your hair takes a lot of the nutrients, so you won’t grow tall.

  27. QUESTION:
    Whats the best hair mask is you want to grow your hair long?
    my hair is pretty healthy, but the ends are sometimes dry and they can be quite brittle

    whats a good hair mask or weekly treatment that helps you grow your hair long

    btw i don’t want expensive brands, something along the lines of garnier, herbal essences, elvive etc.

    • ANSWER:
      I think that homemade hair masks work very well. Actually, I haven’t seen any (brand) hair masks at target or anything. You might want to try the Aussie Three Minute Miracle, it’s about three dollars at target.

      I’m actually waiting for my homemade hair mask to set right now! Here’s the recipe, it’s so easy!
      -2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
      -1 Tablespoon Honey
      -2 Eggs

      (Beware, hair masks can get stinky!)

      It’s simple as that. Once you mix it up well make sure that your hair is well combed with no tangles. I overlooked this step the first time, and it was terrible trying to work it in! Once you have rubbed it in like conditioner, take a plastic bag and just wrap it around your masked hair, and tie it shut with a hairband. Leave it in for about an hour, then wash it out. I wash it out outside because I fear that it might clog my drains, and that’s a cost I can’t afford!

      Good luck!

  28. QUESTION:
    Why do you need to get a trim to grow your hair long ?
    People keep saying to grow your hair you need to get a trim every 6 weeks but hair growth is about the scalp like the ends anyway don’t affect the growth and also if you get a trim every 6-8 weeks it’ll never grow. At least I have dry hair so it grows super slow. Btw any hair growth tips ??

    • ANSWER:
      Well the only reason you have to trim your hair is because of split ends. If you hold the tips of your hair in a light, Can you see little white tips on the end of your hair. These are split ends. The best thing to do is buy some preventing split end hair products from a local chemist. Or an easier way is just to grab scissors and trim the white bits off, This way your only cutting not even 1 cm off which can make your hair grow longer. Also when you wash your hair masarging the scalp is really good for hair growth. Another thing to do is hold your head upside down for a minute every day because it makes all the blood rush too your head which helps yourn hair grow. Take care of your hair and it will be long in no time.

    Does a wash and set from a salon grow your hair long?
    I am a male my hair is a little past my shoulder. I want to grow my hair long down my back. Can someone help me and explain? I am half Dominican and half African American. I have only been growing it for 2 years and it slowed up growing.

    • ANSWER:
      You have to cut it at least once every one or two months, just a small small trim. Maybe half an inch. What happens is, the ends split and split up the strand until it breaks off at uncontrollable lengths. Keep it healthy and trimmed and it will grow. =)

  31. QUESTION:
    Does vitamin H really grow your hair long?

    • ANSWER:
      Sorry to be the bearer of GOOD news, but it’s been proven you can help your hair grow faster (But there’s no guarantee it’ll work). Vitamin H helps your hair grow a LOT, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E all help. Also, eat Bacon or anything with a lot of Amino Acids.

      However. Even if you do all of these things, it may not work. It’s all dependent on your genes.

    How do you make your hair grow long?
    i am an african american 11 yr old and wnna no how to make your hair long,beautiful an healthy

    • ANSWER:
      Well, sometimes you’re going to get the kind of hair your parents have–good or bad. But the key is to get a hairstyle that will make YOU LOOK GOOD–REGARDLESS OF YOUR HAIR BEING LONG OR SHORT. But, I do have some tips: Go to a professional and have them cut off your broken, damaged hair; get deep conditioning treatments where you sit under the dryer (you can buy that at the beauty supply store, or go to the salon); try not to use a blow dryer, but if you do, use a leave-in conditioner, or setting lotion to protect your hair. Also, try to wrap your hair–for some reason, wrapping your hair with setting lotion helps your hair, and sitting under a hooded dryer keeps your hair healthy. Also, buy a satin scarf (you can get them at Wal-mart), or have your parents buy you satin pillowcase, and wrap your hair at night–this keeps your hair from breaking off better than a cotton scarf. Hope that helps.

    My sister and I both want long hair but we dont know what to do to get it.

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

      Btw if your looking for a cute hairstyle to try out without heat try these:

    i wanna know if it works before i
    soak my hair in something that gross

    • ANSWER:
      Um, I never EVER heard that before, but when that Horse Mane & Tail shampoo came out, my mom used to wash my hair with that. My hair is about 4 inches about my butt and it’s real. The only things my mom did to my hair was kept it braided when I was younger and kept it maintained when I got older. Oh, and I don’t have a relaxer. She also used to oil my scalp with castor oil. That is supposed to work for hair growth. To do this, massage your scalp, then oil it lightly with the castor oil then massage it again. Obviously you DON’T wanna do this every night.

  39. QUESTION:
    Spiritually speaking, for the guys, were you allowed to grow your hair long in school?
    In my school, through my senior year (1972) the boys were not allowed to have long hair. They wore wigs.

    At graduation when they walked across the stage, after they were given that diploma, each of them removed the wig and threw it into the audience.

    There was one school district in San Antonio at the time that had no such rules for the guys, but just one district out of 6 districts in the city.

    • ANSWER:
      In Marshall (1979) we were not limited in either the length of our hair or in the wearing of facial hair, In fact one of the guys in the class ahead of mine looked remarkably like ZigZag Man/Jesus; but a co-worker of mine went to Elysian Fields where not only was facial hair prohibited but the principal used the infamous “Shirt test.”

      For those not familiar the shirt test required that a male student suspected of having hair too long had to put on a special shirt kept in the principal’s office and if his hair went past the collar he received punishment.

      btw The High School was not air conditioned until after I was graduated.

  45. QUESTION:
    How can you grow your hair long and fast?
    My hair is a little over shoulder length and I want it longer kinda like Megan fox’s at affordable prices, please.

    • ANSWER:
      Get it trimmed/trim it regularly to avoid split ends, which prevent your hair from growing properly. I’ve also hear that prenatal vitamins do wonders for hair and skin. You can buy those at the drug store and you don’t have to be pregnant to take them. They contain zinc and vitamin B among other things. Otherwise, just take care of your hair and wait.
      That or you can buy extensions or have them put in but I don’t much about those.

  46. QUESTION:
    How do you grow your hair long without getting split ends?
    I know you trim it, but still. Also my hair is curly if that helps?

    • 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 four 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.(puritans pride.com or vitadigest.com) 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, shampoo well, makes an excellent hot oil treatment. good luck, AND some people will argue about regular trims, your hair does grow from the roots, yes, but if your hair is not trimmed at the bottom, the it splits, get dry and brittle not to mention thin looking from no trims at all and frizzy. then your hair starts to break off at the bottom and giving you the appearance that it never grows. so to make hair grow as fast as possible and keep it healthy, then trims are an essential part of hair care. look on a ruler and check out less then half an inch and if your salon does not know what that is then take a ruler with you, i have. as of three weeks ago adding beta carotene vitamins to my regimen. i found out that along with the biotin it is very very good in promoting hair growth. they were five bucks for a bottle of 100. got them at walmart. the biotin and e can also be purchased at walmart, and adding all this up is pretty cheap to get great hair. i just wish the shampoo was available in the stores, but not yet.

  47. QUESTION:
    Can choosing to grow your hair long or to cut it very short have spiritual significance?
    I have found in the past that during extreme tragedy and loss, I have an immediate urge to cut my hair off. However, during extended times of joy and contentment, the idea of cutting my hair almost seems wrong. Do any of you have specific spiritual feelings connected with hair length, and if so, do you think it is more instinctual or is it more of a conscious choice?

    • ANSWER:
      not really. I have short short hair, it used to be red but now it is back to its usual chocolate brown, and I find that changes I make to my hair has more to do with whim than anything else. Plus what looks good. Long hair doesn’t make it for me anymore.

    Any tips on how to make your hair grow long faster?
    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. Make sure you eat well, your hair also depends on a good diet.
