7 recipes for homemade hair growth treatments.
Can anyone confirm these? Would like to know if they really work
Rosemary does work. I haven't tried the others though!
As a licensed cosmetologist I can assure you that these may sound delicious and help the hair feel better but HAIR once it grows out from the root is dead. It's what you eat that will make or break your hair. If you go on a crash diet your hair will suffer because you need fats in your diet to keep it shiny and healthy. If you are stressed going through menopause or just had a baby, some your hair will fall out
I heard prenatals work. mostly the folic acid in them
Your hair falls out in CRAZY amounts after you have a baby. It all grows back though. Hate that phase.
I'm a stylist as well, and she is correct. Hair has a set growth rate and can only grow to a certain length. Diet, exercise, and regular trimming with help it stay healthier. Good shampoo an conditioner helps keep it from breaking.
Love long hair
My hair seemed a lot stronger and I was able to grow it longer than ever before with Morrocan Oil. It seemed to give my hair more elasticity and less breakage.
As an ex-cosmetologist with very long hair, I agree with the above. When asked the secret to growing long hair this is always my response: 1. Don't cut it (it gets to an awkward stage & your first instinct is to cut it) 2. Good diet 3. Avoid over-tight hairbands which damages hair & causes breakage. And the biggie, which seems to be the hardest for folks: 4. Don't brush or comb it until it is completely dried. When combed wet, your hair stretches. Hair that has been stretched will break easily. Even once will do damage, and doing it over & over will definitely severely weaken it. To demonstrate, take three pieces of thread equal in length & wet them. Set one piece aside to dry. Pull the ends of the two remaining pieces to stretch them. Allow them both to dry. Re-wet one of the stretched pieces & stretch again & let dry. Now pull each piece until it breaks. The one that was not stretched will be the hardest to break & the one stretched twice will be the easiest. Hope that helps.
so I'm sitting here with egg whites and oil olive for nothing??? EWWW!!!!!
@Dawn Keehn I thought it was bad not to get it cut? I thought you need to cut it to help it grow? or is that bs?
Vinegar?? I WOULD NOT! TAKE BIOTIN all natural pills. Last Winter I had very short hair, now its down past my shoulders.. BIOTIN.. and you will also notice a dramatic change in your nail growth! Your welcome! :)
@Krystal Raymond Cutting and trimming are two different things. Do trim your hair (1/4" or so) to keep the ends clean, but if you want your hair to get long, don't cut it (over an inch). Personally, my hair grows about 1/2" a month and is trimmed only 1/4" - 1/2" every 3 months. Once a year I cut 3-4" off, which maintains my length to bottom of belt line. If you want to add length, figure out your personal growth rate (easy if you dye your hair) & just be sure not to cut off more than you grow. I hope that makes sense.
@Jamie Fritchman vinegar is awesome for your hair...it very much smooths it down, I have mixed wavy/straight/curly so I get wicked tangles and a vinegar rinse works amazingly as a detangler
but I doubt the authenticity of the article since "curry" is not a plant...it's spice mix
All these girls hav extensions... That's the secret 2 long hair
Biotin works great! (Dang send button! ;-))
Hair normally grows half an inch a month but trimming it doesn't speed it up or slow it down.... Hair grows at the roots not at the ends...... So trimming or cutting does nothing but make it healthy
Castor oil definetly works but use the one that smells burnt and has a high ash content and vinegar is for closing the cuticles and helps to control porosity thats why you use it as your final rinse and make sure you rinse with cold water.. been doing most of these things for about a year now since this pic was taken and my natural hair is now past shoulder length (almost mid-back yay!) and becareful with biotin it will definetly cause break outs.. oh and another tip is to keep your hair from breaking, after you condition or moisturize or spray with water , or whatver evers best for your hair, put a lil castor oils at your ends to mid shaft to seal in the moisture if thats to heavy use a lighter oil like jojoba sometimes olive is kinda drying and make sure to keep the protein moisture balance in your hair and it will not break which means less splits and less trims and it will grow grow grow guaranteed-- A licensed cosmetologist

My hair only grows to my bra strap and that's it. Not any longer than that, ever. Why is that? I'd like it to be a bit longer. i also have very fine hair.
