Yvette asks:
I am trying to grow my hair long Ė I am tired of having short hair and need tips on how to grow it!

It can be very frustrating when you are trying to grow out shorter hair. My first piece of advice would be to have your hair styled in to a shorter style that you are happy with immediately. ...More >

Your hairdresser will be able to determine your face shape, your hair type and texture and can advise a style that suits you, while you go through the awkward phase of growing your hair. A common mistake that people make when trying to grow hair longer is to avoid having their hair trimmed, which can lead to split ends and breakage. This has the reverse of the desired effect, making hair shorter.

However, just as often people take this advice to keep up with regular trims too literally. Unless hair is in very poor condition, there is no need to trim hair every 6-8 weeks while you are trying to grow some length. Stick to a trim every 4 months instead, and, in between trims, use deep conditioning products on a weekly basis, and avoid over-use of heated styling products.

Try swapping a cotton pillow for a silk or satin one, to avoid overnight hair breakage, and be gentle when brushing delicate wet hair. Usually our hair growth is determined by our genes, however our diet and lifestyle can also have an effect on our hair growth rate. Stress, alcohol and excess sugar can all contribute to poor scalp and hair health. Foods thought to improve hair growth include salmon and organic eggs, which are both full of hair health-boosting protein and omega 3, oysters, which are rich in zinc, (a zinc deficiency has been linked to hair loss), avocado, sweet potato and almonds. There are supplements available at health food shops and online, which can supplement your diet with additional vitamins and minerals, if you feel you need some extra nutritional support.

Finally, if you are really struggling to grow your hair and are tired of wearing it in shorter styles, you could always consider hair extensions. While there are plenty of cheaper brands on the market, itís worth saving and investing in a good quality extension brand, such as the Easilocks human hair extensions, that we offer at S J Forbes. Good quality hair extensions that have been applied well give the extra length and thickness that cannot be achieved with products alone.

Its always important to take a hair supplement as well as have a good diet. Invest in the best possible balancing shampoo and conditioner from a professional salon. Always comb the conditioner through before rinsing as this will seal the cuticles and help your hair have shine.

Its very difficult for me to advise you as I donít know the exact treatment you are receiving. But what I would suggest is that you use the best quality professional brand moisturizing shampoo and conditioner possible as well as a weekly moisturizing & protein masque or treatment. Follow the instructions carefully and the condition of your hair will improve dramatically. Make sure your styling products have sunscreen in them. Good luck.
