Sometimes waiting for our hair to grow longer can ensure impatience, which is when we seek alternative methods to getting our hair to grow faster. If you’re trying to grow out short hair or just want longer locks, follow these tips to find out which works best for you and your hair.

Getting consistent trims

We know it may seem counterproductive, but getting a trim every 5-6 weeks actually helps your hair grow faster. You get rid of dead ends and prevent breakage that could happen in the future.


Massage Your Scalp

Massaging your scalp when you shampoo helps your hair grow. Why? When you apply pressure by massaging your scalp, it increases circulation and opens hair follicles allowing them to receive nutrition needed for hair growth.

Use Mane ‘N Tail Shampoo

Though there’s been mixed reviews on this product, it has been proven to work for different people. If you’re up for it, give it a try for at least two weeks and see if you get the results you want. Available on Amazon, $7.


If you’re looking to add supplements to your diet, this is a great vitamin to add for hair growth. It also helps nail growth and the strengthening of nails, hair and it helps skin, as well.

Apple Cider Vinegar

An apple cider vinegar rinse after shampooing stimulates hair follicles for more growth. Just dilute some apple cider vinegar with water and rinse your hair with it after shampooing. It’s easy and all natural!

Go All Natural

Using all natural and organic hair products will also help the health of your hair and the length. Some chemicals in regular hair products stump the hair growth process, giving you hair that lacks in growth and luster. Kiehl’s natural hair products are the perfect starting point.  

No ‘Poo

Shampooing less frequently is another tried and true method to help your hair grow faster. It saves time in the shower and it helps your hair soak up your natural oils instead of rinsing them out and drying out your hair and scalp. Try shampooing once or twice a week or even less, to see a difference.

Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet consisting of protein, veggies, fruits, whole grain and lots of Omega 3’s will not only help with hair growth, but it helps keep hair shiny, strong and healthy-looking.
