That is so true, if you brush your hair plenty of times before you go to sleep it will give you results. Also it might sound crazy but pull your hair before going asleep as well.....gently ofcourse, this will stimulate hair growth ;)

Olive oil and yogurt... Mayonnaise and Beer... Raw Eggs... Etc...
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.

Good Luck!

There are a number of tips that you can try for growing long beautiful hair. Some of them are as follows:
- Shampoo your hair frequently. At least 3 times a day
- Minimize use of blowers and straighteners
- Do not comb them while they are wet, it would cause breakage of hair. Always comb before you wash them.
- Use a conditioner after shampoo
- Drink at least 10 glasses of water per day.
- Eat a high protein diet and also include lots of green veggies.
- You have not mentioned your hair type. However, if they are oily apply lemon juice and leave for 10-15 minutes. It keeps hair healthy
- If your hair are dry you can massage your hair with olive oil. You can also apply mixture of oil and honey.
- Avoid bleaching your hair
- trim your hair regularly

To grow long hair, you need to
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.

Ive heard of many different methods of trying to make your hair grow.

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.
I havent tried it but I shall let you know.

I have heard rumors that brushihng it really well and keeping it pinned up helps, and also getting the very ends of your hair (a half inch or so) trimmed could make it grow more, but these don't make any sense to me, so ill stick around =)

What do you mean about olive oil and yogurt to the hair? Do you mix it and leave it for how long?

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.
