try this mix : cocnut oil + castor oil, put it in your hair for 1-2 hours, if you sleep with it thats even better...cause hair fociles open up during your sleep and they absorb the oil faster.
also try : olive oil ( it darkens and strengthens the hair) I once dyed my hair caramel blonde it was too light, i was going to dye it again, my mom suggested that i oil my hair with olive oil, three days later, it went almost 3 to 4 shades darker! it was a subtle dark caramel, almost chestnut! perfect shade!

the castor oil acts as a cataylst to increase hair growth, i know i've mentioned it various times in the eyebrow thread but its worth mentioning it here as well..

as how to get rid of the oil on your scalp, use shampoo for oily hair, that usually does the trick for me. Just buy a shampoo thats for oily hair, and when you want to get the oil out of ur hair later with that shampoo properly and it will go away

I'm trying to grow my hair out and my stylist swears by the Farmers Almanic which it sounds like what your grandmother uses too. Apparently I'm cutting my hair on all of the wrong days! There are days (2 a month) to engourage growth and ecourage growth. Just google it and it should come up. If I remember correctly, the 13th and 14th of this month are bad days to cut your hair if you want to grow it out.

After cutting my hair this past November (a decision that seemed like such a good idea at the time!), I'm now desperately trying to grow my hair out! I've always been very concerned regarding the health of my hair, and my hairstylist even told me once that my hair is "too healthy." How about that?

Anyway, my question is, has anyone here tried a rosemary hair rinse, and if so, has it had any effect on your hair? I found a tutorial on eHow.com which calls for either dried or fresh rosemary, boiling water, and apple cider vinegar. Though I've read in the past of how rosemary is supposed to work wonders, I'm curious to see if anyone can offer their personal experiences with it. Here's the tutorial if others want to use it.

it's always been said warm weather makes the hair grow faster. I experience it all the time, especially during summer time(love it because it's so thick in the summer). also, when you workout, and you're sweating and you're hot. the pores on your head open up(that's why it's good to tie your hair up in a bun when you workout..it keeps the head warm)

seanutbutter, I have not done this particular rinse with rosemary per se, but I have used similar one with chamomile tea, and often use apple cider vinegar in the final rinse of my hair. The a.c.v. really helps to smooth the cuticles of my very fine but very dense curly hair, and the chamomile brought out dark ash/goldish tones in my dark brown hair ( it usually has a quite red tone/highlights). If your hair has any type of texture to it ( curly/wavy) the rinse will probably help cut down frizz and make your hair much smoother.

You also may want to try deep conditioning weekly (it helps me retain length since my hair is quite dry and fragile) and if you heat style your hair, maybe try to cut down on how often you do so. You say your hair is quite healthy already, so I am sure these thing could help it grow even faster and healthier.hope this is helpful to you.

Thank you for the tips, birgitta! I've researched a bit more on rosemary since my last post and am now very anxious to try it in some form or another. I'll also look into your other suggestions - I do use a flat iron most days, but I'm trying to cut back because I know it can't possibly be healthy for my hair!

I also need to try some of these tips. I'm so desperate to grow my hair back. I used to have such long hair and it was really healthy, but I got a haircut a few months ago and the stylist aka psycho just chopped it all off after I explained that I only wanted a few inches off. Needless to say, I left in tears. well, there's not a whole lot I can do about it now, so I'm going to try some of these suggestions!

coconut oil - keeping it on overnight really helps.. it even stops hair from falling
I sometimes use a mix of olive oil, egg yolks, honey and lime
some people add a vitamin E capsule to it as well.

Ok, I don't know if it's just an overactive imagination and wishful thinking, but I've been using mane & tail shampoo and doing castor oil treatments, and I swear my hair has grown longer this week. Hopefully it's really happening!!

I promise you that it isn't true - as you said, her hair always grows back fast, so maybe it actually just grows fast no matter when she cuts it?

I remember doing the castor oil/coconut oil combo. It works amazingly well.
I would sit in a steam room for as long as i could bear it with oil in my hair (not for the faint hearted!), It worked wonders! My hair looked thicker and grewwww. I was getting compliments from my Indian friend that meant everything to me because she had gorgeous hair herself

Yeah Maray-a there is a mask that I love, its Mayonnaise , apple cider vinegar, avocado blended together…I leave it on my hair for 1 hour, then wash it out….gives your hair a very rich healthy look, you could see it instantly…..

Oh and forgot to add if you have dandruff problems it gets rid of it VERY QUICK, from the first application…( well depending on how heavy a person is with dandruff, but you could see a BIG difference from first application)

Yeah i think the apple cider vinegar is meant to help with dandruff...
That mask sounds really rich..is it easy to get out? The mask does make sense though coz
the eggs in the mayo is protein for the hair, the fat in the avocado conditions it while the vinegar neautrilizes your scalp...

I cut my hair today... and it seems like it wasn't the best day

Cut Hair to Increase Growth 2, 3, 7, 8, 25, 26
Cut Hair to Retard Growth 9, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 23

If only i could have waited one more day!
