Thats so weird about the date thing! I wonder if its true?
My hair seems to grow quite quickly, or maybe its just because I tie it up every day for work so when I have it down it shoks me! But its nearly overing my breasts now so I want to get it longer for the fun of it, I have never had it this long. I'll be using these tips!

what I have found that works very well to get my hair to grow, honestly, are a few simple common sense things. Keep it moisturized and give it protein when it needs it, take your vitamins, and if your ends get split and rough trim them a little so they don't travel up the hair shaft inches and begin to break off.

I know this is an old post, but I just wanted to point out that it's actually the opposite - hair grows slow in the winter and fast in the summer. I've read that it has something to do with the heat from the sun, but I don't know how much of a difference it actually makes.

I love Phyto products to encourage hair growth (the vitamins), but the Anti-Aging line helps to increase the diameter which makes your hair look and feel thicker, but not sure it really makes it grow? BUt whatever, if it looks and feels thicker...thats fine by me

I'm trying to grow my hair. It's fine but I have a lot of it. At the moment it is foiled (ie bleached) and coloured, but I very rarely heat style, which hopefully offsets the bleaching.

For the last 6 or so weeks (maybe 8 weeks, I can't remember) I've been taking silicea gel mixed in with orange juice in the mornings, fish oil (3x day), zinc (1x day), biotin (3x day) and a multi-B complex (1x day). My hair usually grows quickly but since taking the above, it's grown like crazy. I had foils put in 7-8 weeks ago and it's grown about an inch and a half, maybe a little more, since then.

So far as shampoo goes, the shampoo I've noticed that's had an effect on how my hair feels (ie thickness) is Mastey Enove shampoo. I used to hate this shampoo because I never thought it cleaned my hair very well but I pulled it out of my product graveyard the other week (under the bathroom sink ) and use it nearly every day (other days I used a blonde shampoo) and while I don't believe it can actually physically thicken my hair, it certainly feels and looks thicker.

i just bought some indian hair oil today, vatika and some other one (i cant read hindi) that is meant to be mixed oils. indian women have such beautiful, long, thick and healthy hair so whatever they use is good enough for me! it was hard to find a product without henna. most of them contain henna to give their black hair a tint and keep it glossy looking but i'm naturally blonde and didn't want to end up with tie-dye hair.

i'll let you know how it ends up! i'm praying to the hair gods that if i massage it into my scalp once a day that i will see results!

I just bought some Biotin a few days ago after reading online that it helps hair grow, I was wondering if it has worked for anyone here? And if so, how long did it take to start seeing results? Do you recommend taking any other vitamins with it, I take 2 fish oil capsules a day but not sure if any other vitamins would aid the biotin.

^ I take biotin, but I'm kind of lazy and forgetful so its on an irregular basis. However, I know that my mother has taken biotin for roughly the last 4-5 years paired with a liquid multi vitamin, and her hair practically grows a foot a year! (Actually, that is an exaggeration, but you get what I mean.) I'm not sure if she just has naturally faster hair growth or not, but I'm sure it has something to do with the vitamins she takes.

Actually, it's Vitamin D.
Sunlight helps promote the production of Vitamin D in our bodies.

For those with thinning hair, try Nutri-Ox. I've been using this product for a few days now and I've noticed a substantial reduction in the amount of hair that I usually shed in a day. I also take biotin and fish oil supplement like others in this thread and it helps too.
