Stupid question - how to make my hair grow quicker!
Hair is cell renewal/metabolism, in a sense. If you eat a diet rich in protein and good fats (have some salmon and snack on nuts and seeds) that will make sure you are getting enough of the good stuff. If hair growth is linked with metabolism, if you boost your metabolism that could presumably boost hair growth - exercise?
Lastly, hair goes in growth cycles and apparently it grows more in summer and its something to do with sunlight etc so get out in the sun perhaps...
And try and be objective - if you like the haircut, sod your DH, it takes balls to have a mega crop and these things have to be tried. I bet you look stunning.
What a horrible feeling. As tatty says though sun makes hair grow faster. What about getting some new makeup - everytime Iv had drastic cuts, particularly cropped hair I change my makeup. Or make sure I've got some on and I'm looking more polished. At least for a week after!
Hi, thanks for the suggestions to my totally daft question and thanks for not laughing at me. I'll go and find some zinc tablets and stock up on nuts / salmon and put my hair out in the sun at every available opportunity.
Re: DH not liking my hair cut, normally I'd say "stuff it" as I"ve always had short hair but on this occasion it pains me to say he's right.
What's worse is I've had an asymmetrical cut so one side is short and the other side is longer but not that much longer so it all looks a bit crappy tbh. (NOt the hairdresser's fault as she did what I asked!)
my hair grows v slowly but when i was in Australia for spring/summer for 5 months, i was in the sun every day and it grew like crazy, i couldnt believe it, and had to go to hairdressers a few times, whereas back here in UK i go once or twice a yr for a slight trim
Wisteria; I'm sure you look lovely and I'll bet in a few weeks you'll be happier with it. Sometimes it takes a few weeks for the edges to soften. In the meantime, yes...lots of protein, whole grains, leafy greens. There's a supplement called "Florasil" that's supposed to be good for hair and nails.
