people think getting it trimmed all the time makes it grow faster- it doesn’t – quit getting it cut and eat lots of acacadoes

I’ve heard a lot of things that are suppose to help your hair grow. I’ve heard that keeping your hair pulled back helps, but I don’t know it that’s true. Keeping yourself healthy (getting your vitamins, minerals, proteins, etc) will help keep your hair healthy and healthy hair will grow faster than unhealthy hair. I’ve also heard Biotin supplements help as well, but I’ve never tried them.


I believe healthy stimulation of the scalp, through brushing and massage, aids in growing hair a bit faster. When you massage the scalp briskly, you stimulate more blood and oxygen flow to the scalp, which in turn aids in hair growth.

Welcome to Fluther!

Since the only living part of hair is the follicle inside of the scalp, nothing done to the hair you can touch will help. Eating a healthy diet is the best way to make hair and nails grow healthy and more quickly. Google “How to make hair grow faster” and read some of the links.

I have heard Biotin helps strengthen hair, and Zinc. Stregnth is not the sae as faster, but the stronger it is, the more you can let it grow and grow without having to trim dry and spit ends. The best way to get long hair is to let it grow. ¼ to ½ an inch a month is what I think people say is normal growth.

I just got modded… But I really mean it… Pull on it.

And don’t mod me if you really don’t know if it works or not. It works for me!

I read a study that discussed ther rate of beard growth in men.
It found that it was the anticipation of a sexual encounter – not the actual encounter – that made it grow faster.
They determined this by evaluating researchers in the field who knew they were going into town to meet “a friend”.
I will look around and see if I can find it. Unless someone beats me to it.
Found it
