All these things have been claimed to 'feed' your hair and make it stronger. In reality they are only coating your hair and making it look a little better for a while. No different than using a professional hair oil, or gel.
I agree with a most of the things in the previous answer, except for the "Shampoo your hair frequently". Shampooing too often is not good for your hair or scalp. Shampooing three days a week is sufficient, unless you are outside and sweating a lot.
And I do not agree with applying lemon juice to your hair. It can dry your hair out very badly.
The old wives tale of brushing your hair 80 strokes every night actually does help. It helps by stimulating the blood circulation in your scalp, which helps the hair to grow.
Also, use professional hair products. There IS a difference. Over the counter hair products contain a lot of wax, mostly as a preservative in order to give the products a long shelf life. This wax builds up on your hair and scalp, in your hair follicles, causing clogging and retards hair growth. This is what makes your hair look really shiny at first, but after a while your hair will become dull and limp and heavy from the wax.
My favorite professional line of products is Llanza. If you Google Lanza haircare you can go to their site and find a salon near you that carries it.
And last, if you swim a lot, you need to wet your hair completely with a water hose before you get in the pool water. Hair is like a sponge, it absorbs only so much water. Wetting it with clean water first will help keep it from absorbing so much of the chemicals in the pool water.

1) Keep scalp clean with a herbal shampoo and conditioner.
2) Take biotin supplements
3) Drink 8-10 glasses of water daily, and
4) The magic part, is to use a good herbal oil massaged into your scalp, there is one that I used that works very well to grow long hair. It detoxifes the blood and exfoliates the scalp, therefore allowing super fast growth. It contains all the natural ingredients that has been tested and proven to grow long hair.
Personally I have very dry hair so I'm trying to grow it out as well as make it stronger.
So I have been leaving mayo in my hair once a week, which provides moisture to my dry hair.
Msm mineral pills apparently make your hair grow faster as well as your nails.

If you put your hair in braids overnight it is supposed to secure your hair, and make it stronger. Strong hair grows faster (:
Two teaspoons of olive oil, one teaspoon of honey, coconut oil, and half an avacado. Crush the avacado till it is pretty much squished
Mix all the other ingrediants. Put avacado in the others and apply fron roots to end wait an hour. Wash in sink or shower wherever you wash your hair. It really works
cool I like the tips but I think daily washing the hairs with dove soap irrespective of whether you sweat or you have dry hairs I think one should wash daily. Also if you have bold patches in your head then massage a layer of garlicon your head unit it starts to burn.
