Ahh, yes. I’ve definitely done this before! Okay so here’s like…an overview of all of your options.
1- take Hair, Skin, and Nail vitamins. That’s exactly what it says on the bottle, and it supports collagen and biotin. Take up to 3 a day. It’s like..$5 a bottle. Not expensive and you can get it at Target or Walmart.
2- Stop using heat on your hair. This is the hardest one for me, since I have curly hair and like straightening it. But if you can keep your hair looking good without heat, that will be one of the best things for your hair. It’s going to look so much healthier.
3. Even though you’re trying to grow it out, keep getting it trimmed. Not a ton, because your hair grows a 1/2 inch a month. Just enough to get the split ends off. Go to your stylist and tell them you want a “baby, micro trim.” They should understand :)
4. Deep condition. Depending on the porosity and texture of your hair, deep condition every to every other week. If you have fine hair, ONLY every other week. If you have thicker, coarser hair, you can get away with deep conditioning more. Just stay away from doing it any more than that, because it WILL weigh your hair down, and that won’t look good.
Hopefully these helped! I’m still in the process of growing mine out as well! You’ll get the most results from doing all 4, but doing even just 1 of them will tremendously help your hair. Good luck! Keep me updated! :)
