Beauty University- How to make your hair grow faster

Hello ladies,
Convinced your hair won't grow? Do you swear that it was "the same length last year?" Here are some tips and tricks on how to get your locks to start running towards your Jimmy Choos!

Try prenatal vitamins
Most prenatal vitamins contain biotin (along with iron and folic acid), which promotes healthy hair growth. It will not only help your hair grow longer faster, but your skin and nails will gain the benefits too. Of course, it is best to consult your doctor before taking a new type of vitamin supplement.

Stick to healthy hair diet
Whole grains along with foods rich in calcium all promote hair growth. Cysteine is also a huge helper. Cysteine is found in foods including poultry, eggs, red peppers, garlic, onions, Brussels spouts, yogurt, oatmeal, and broccoli. If you prefer to stay away from supplements like the ones mentioned above, you can get your biotin from nuts (especially almonds and peanuts) egg yolks, soybeans, and fish.

Indulge in a scalp massage
Whenever you’re shampooing or rinsing your hair, try massaging your head with your fingertips to stimulate hair growth.

True or False
"Trimming my ends every 6-8 weeks helps hairgrowth"

Research revealed that tip to be completely false. Since hair grows out of the scalp, trimming the ends will not affect its growth. Trimming the ends however, DOES help maintain long hair. Since your ends are a sure indication of what your roots once were (all the bleach and dye one on top of another) and they are now trying to "grow away", trimming your ends will keep the breakage from continuing up and will make your hair look healthier.
Keep in mind that as you trim, you are trimming layers upon layers of treated hair, so that whole "I keep trimming it and then it won't grow any longer" theory is wrong. It is growing, you just can't see the length until you get rid of all the bad ends :)
Happy growing,
