How To Get Long Hair - Fast!

The ultimate at-home regrowth fix behind flawless long hair. (You’re Welcome!)

If you are anything like me (Always thinking the grass is greener...), then you know the frustration that comes with having short hair, when all you want is long locks. I’ve literally been researching and hunting down the best ways to help my hair grow quickly. The ultimate truth is : healthy hair = longer hair.

Yes, there’s no real quick fix. (Other than hair extensions obviously)

No matter how many vitamins you choke down every morning, or how many ‘trims’ you get every month, you can’t force quick growth.

So here are the harsh-hair facts:

  1. Hair typically only grows a quarter inch per month.

  2. Getting long hair is only possible if your hair is super healthy and doesn’t have tons of split ends.

While there is no quick fix for overnight longer locks, we have pulled together a list of tips on how to ensure you stand the best chance to grow longer hair. Here they are:

Invest in scalp care.

By introducing proper scalp care into your hair care routine, you will impact the rate of hair growth and the health of your hair fibers.

Shampoo Less. Condition More.

Most shampoos are filled with harsh soaps called sulfates, which strip away the natural oils you need for long, healthy hair. So either choose a shampoo that is sulfate free or skip the shampoo every other day and just use conditioner every alternate wash.

Rinse with Cold Water.

Cold water lays down the outer layer of your hair more smoothly, which helps prevent moisture loss, snags and heat damage. You literally only need to do it for a few seconds, but it can make a huge difference over time.

Use DIY Masks.

Using oils like coconut oil, with almond oil, Jojoba oil and macadamia nut oil will ensure strands are filled with fatty acids, which helps strengthen and protect your hair as you grow it out.

Stay Away From Bleach.

Yes, the hardest of them all. But you know you need to listen. When you bleach your hair it opens up the cuticle of your hair strands, causing significant damage. Every.Single.Time.

Moral of this #StyleStory? While you can’t grow your hair over night, you can definitely change up your routine to make sure your hair is as healthy as humanly possible.
