Hair Growth Tips and Tricks

I've had some requests to do a post on hair growth.  I have done a few in the past, but I figured I would compile all of my hair growth knowledge into one post for people who may have just stumbled upon PIPM.  
{October of 2010, 2011, and now}

Let me state that I am not an expert by any means on hair growth.  These are just some things that have worked for me in the past; that doesn't mean these things will work for you.  Use your best judgment on whether or not you would like to do the following things.  


These pills are a miracle worker if you are trying to grow out your hair.  Some people have told me that you can get the same formula for cheaper in an off brand, but for me these Phytophanere pills have worked well.  


These are drops that you can put in your water.  They are colorless and tasteless, so you really don't even know they are there.  This is a great supplement for bones, joints, hair, nails, and skin.  


These are a given.  You should be taking a multivitamin regardless of whether you are trying to grow your hair out or not.  


This stuff is no joke.  You spray it on your scalp after you've combed out your hair from the shower.  It will stimulate hair growth as well as encourage new growth.  

5) Air-drying/Minimal Heat Styling 

I can't even tell you the last time that I used a hair dryer on my hair.  I think that by not heat styling your hair you are in turn making it more healthy and encouraging growth.  

What about you all? Any hair growth tips that you have?

I've used Viviscal in the past and it worked well. I also think that prenatal vitamins help a lot.

Can you post some pictures of your hair growth too? I know you've gone shorter and grown it out, and now looking at your main picture, I realized just how long your hair has gotten! I'd love to see a little timeline of how quickly it's grown if you have a chance :)

I am with you on vitamins, supplements and air-drying my hair. I also use Omega 3 fish oil. I just try to monitor the different supplements to make sure there are no known reactions to doing them together!

Great post! Can you tell if your hair is any thicker?

I take a Biotin pill every day and I have noticed a difference in my hair, skin, and nails. My hair is visibly stronger, shinier, and longer! I've been wanting to try Nioxin for a while now!

I take a triple strength tuna omega-3 pill and my hair/eyebrows/eyelashes grow like crazy!!

Great tips - another one I would add would be very infrequent hair washing. I usually go 3-4 days between shampoos and the natural oils from my scalp keep my hair looking healthy. I don't get greasy looking hair at all, and if it needs some extra oomph I use dry shampoo.

Thanks for the post! I am going through chemo now and can't wait to get on a "grow my hair fast" regimen (I am almost done). I am also a hair stylist, so I know Nioxin works great and prenatal vitamins are good too. I may try some of your suggestions too. Your hair is beautiful!

Thanks for the tips! My hair grows soooo slow. How do you get your hair to look so great and NOT use a hair dryer?

I swear, when I was in junior high this one girl would chop her hair off right before the school year let out and then when we would start the new school year, her hair would be down to her waist again. I'm so jealous... ;)

Your hair reallyhas grown so long and luscious!! thanks for the tips: I started taking prenatal vitamins I think you may have suggested in the past and it helped, now I'm going to add the rest of this to my regimen!

Have you tried any of the other Phyto products? I just started using Phyto9 and I really think it is helping repair damage and adding a lot of shine (I use an iron).

Thanks for this post!! I've had a stressful year and my already fine hair has gotten so thin. I can't wait to try these products!

If you make the commitment to closely follow the five steps below, not only will you grow long hair but your hair will be in beautiful condition throughout the process. Read my tips below...

1. Comb your hair daily. This will help stimulate hair growth. Even if you’re at work, be sure to take constant breaks to brush your hair, just don’t get caught.

2. Moisturize your hair. Find a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that adds volume to your hair.

3.Use hair packs once a week to put sustenance in your hair. Much the same as your skin, hair too requires some product of spoiling on a general foundation and cutting edge hair packs help give a clean sparkle to your hair.

4. Trim your hair regularly. You want to do this to get rid of split ends and to add shape to your hair.

5. Uphold to an exceptional diet. Your hair too requires the reliable support of an adjusted eating regimen to develop well. Just ensure that all your meals have enough protein and iron in them.
