Want Long Hair? Hair Stylists Reveal Their Favorite Tips for Growing It Out Faster

Nothing to Disclose

How to get your hair to grow out faster and longerLet’s face it, we all get drawn in by the pictures of amazing cascading curls over on Pinterest. If you’re thinking about growing out your hair, and dreading it, there are things you can do to speed along the process! I’ve asked some of the best hair stylists in the country for their best tips on growing out your hair and doing it fast! They gave me so many amazing tips that the post is split into 2 parts. The other half is over on Pammy Blogs Beauty, since my good friend Pam is in the middle of moving!

Regretfully, your hair will grow at its normal rate until the end of time (.5 inch per month) But keeping it looking healthy is a big part of keeping your legenth if you’re growing it out. Getting a trim every 4-6 weeks is no myth. Will your hair keep growing if you don’t get it cut? Of course…it will just start to look like straw on the ends. Once a split end develops it just keeps splitting up the hair strand which is what causes that unhealthy straw-like look. If you trim every 4-6 weeks you won’t have to cut off 3-4 inches every 6-9 months.

Some of the best hair growth systems out there are Viviscal Professional Supplement Hair Nutrition Program or the Rene Furterer Triphasic Regenerating Treatment and the RF 80 Concentrated Serum. Viviscal helps hair growth internally and the Rene Furterer helps topically!

Greg Ruggeri
(Greg is right, Biotin has been proven in medical studies to increase the rate of hair growth! You can read more about it in my Biotin for nail and hair health post)

Younghee Kim
To grow hair fast starts first with a healthy diet but we can always do more to help the hair by getting a hair and scalp balance service often which is why many of our clients at the Younghee Salon order weekly and monthly. It’s literally like getting a facial or massage for your scalp. It stimulates the circulation to your head and this really helps the hair to grow faster. It’s amazing, our clients love the hair and scalp balance! Also, getting a small trim or dusting the ends every 6 weeks on dry hair can be very helpful and thickens your hair as it grows.

    OK, I have to call it on Younghee Kim. Getting a trim every few weeks cannot thicken your hair. You have the hair you have because of the hair follicles you have, not because of how often you get it trimmed. Maybe it was meant to say the "appearance" of thicker hair?
