i actually think that since you hair is protected in a way they help retain length but you have to make sure they are put in by someone who knows what they are doing! Otherwise, if they are put in too tightly, with hair glue, or any other way that puts stress on your hair and scalp it may result in traction alopecia ( a la Naomi Campbell) or weakening of the hair. if they are put in well there is less need to constantly manipulate your hair which is good for avoiding breakage.

I've heard MSM, a type of organic sulfur, is supposed to work really well for hair growth and overall body health. The only downside i've heard of is detox type systems while the body acclimates to it ,but otherwise it sounds quite promising. has anyone tried or heard of it?

I'm wondering if the "Beautiful Lengths" line by Pantene really works? Anyone heard anything about it?

Thats what I've been reading up about lately...theres a long hair community forum that swears by it. Some of the people use different oils like jojoba, olive oil, and so on. I just bought olive oil and coconut oil for my hair I mix them both together heat it up for a couple seconds in the microwave and massage it into my hair and leave it in for 30 min. or longer.

Hey thanks for the reply! Well, I just recently took out my extensions and started using that oil mix, it actually works pretty well.

So my friend started taking MSM some months ago and told me how different her hair (as well as skin) was. She said it became softer and healthier (and even darker, naturally she's a ravenhead but it had been lighter from the sun, etc.). I finally saw her a couple of weeks ago, and WOW! Her hair looked gorgeous! I seriously couldn't stop touching it. It was so shiny, and soft and looked really lush. And curiously enough, it did look blacker (which is great 'cause I love black hair), but that's probably due to the overall health of it. MSM supposedly helps with collagen and cell repair, so it also affects skin as well as the bones and joints. There are no known side affects according to what I read, other than an increase in energy. Anyway, I started taking it yesterday so we'll see what happens.

And just for weekly maintenance I use coconut oil and it really softens it.

^^You can purchase msm from health food stores and similar stores where vitamins are sold.


I'm currently growing out my hair. During the early stages I wanted faster growth by using topical potions and taking supplements. Although I still take supplements I take them for overall health benefits and not just for hair. What helps is doing less with my hair no color, or heat. I hardly trim since I'm not causing damage to my hair which helps with growth since you're not constantly cutting damage ends away.

Now the weather is getting colder my hair is long enough to do a bun. I'm wearing buns throughout the winter or at least until the weather warms up again. Common article of clothing like wool scarves, hats and coats can snag the hair. The cold weather can also negatively affect the hair.

I just can't put oil on my scalp-my hair would be flat for weeks. I'm taking hair skin and nails vitamins and my nails are growing like crazy. I did get 1/2" of growth last month.

I heard that Monistat on your scalp works. Weird, I know, something about the anti-fungal properties of it. While it did get rid of the itchiness and flakes in my scalp, I don't think I had anymore growth than usual.

I've found that Kelp supplements along with an A-Z helps a lot... I've noticed since i became lazy/forgetful and stopped taking them for a month or so that growth practially stopped.. so I'm going to start again as it definitely worked for me.

Just wondering what everyones experience with oils are like?
I have this tub of Coconut Oil, from Holland & Barret (uk), which i heat up and slather on my hair, probably only every month now. I leave it on for an hour or two usually but then I actually have to use a ton of shampoo and a bit of washing up liquid just so that my hair will be suitable for public viewing again... Which is probably reversing the effect of using the oil in the first place!
Are there any other oils that perhaps wash out easier and dont leave your hair so greasy? Mine gets greasy quickly as it is so the coconut oil doesnt help but I've heard so much positive talk about it helping hair grow long strong and shiny. My hair is so dry

Sorry for the essay!!

My granny has really long hair, and she insists on cutting it only on special days (has something to do with the phase of the moon/ the lunar calender I think) and it always grows back sooo fast So, seems to work!
