Whether you long for long locks or you’re just growing your hair out to shave it again, here’s some great advice from the ones who know hair best: our St. Baldrick’s barbers.
1. Eat healthy.
Good nutrition is essential for healthy, growing hair. You’ll want to eat a diet rich in leafy greens, lean meats, nuts and seeds. You might also consider taking hair-nourishing supplements like biotin and vitamin E.
“The secret to growing out healthy hair is to first eat healthy. Fresh fruits and vegetables will feed your hair great nutrients.”— Jenna Wilkinson, Las Vegas, NV
2. Trim regularly.
Even though you’re going for length, you’ll still want to trim your hair every four to eight weeks to prevent the hair from breaking and thinning out. As the hair gets longer, use conditioner to keep the ends healthy and strong.
“The best tip I have for growing out hair is to get your hair trimmed. By trimming the hair, you are cutting off the split ends and preventing the hair from snapping off.”— Jenny Hartman, Arlington Heights, IL
3. Massage your dome.
A scalp massage doesn’t just feel great — it can help you relax AND help your hair grow faster! Place all 10 fingertips on your head, apply gentle pressure and rub in small circles. Work your fingers around your head from your hairline down to the nape of your neck. For best results, massage your head at least once a day for two minutes.
“Scalp massaging will increase blood flow and circulation to the head, giving those hair follicles more stimulation to grow.”— Antonio Scalora, Ottawa, IL
