Hello fellow myLotters! Two days ago I had an epic failure with my haircut and now it's too short for comfort. x_x While it's summer here and it's alright, it doesn't flatter my face shape at all and I wish to make it grow longer if possible, faster. I saw somewhere that home made hair masks of olive/coconut oil, honey, and and egg/avocado would work. Or just tilting my head down for a few minutes and leaving the olive oil on for 2 hours would make it grow longer in a week. I know it sounds weird, but I can post the Youtube link if need be. .

I agree with you about olive oil, it really works and is too good for hair. I do also use olive oil for many things.

You already said it. Olive oil is really effective. Better use the extra virgin olive oil. I used this every other day and let it stay in my hair overnight. It's really effective in growing my hair fast.

Sometimes the hair stylist did that to me too. My hair get so short once as if I am going to be a soldier or the sort. From my understanding, the hair masks made of olive or coconut oil does have the effect of promoting the hair condition and fasten hair grow speed. There is also another way to grow your hair faster. It is to take more bath than you normally do. When your hair gets wet from bath, it grows faster too. This is natural and almost no cost of hair grow method.

i read somewhere to make hair grows longer faster you should Increase your intake of protein. This is what your hair is built of, and if your intake of protein is limited then your body won't give any to your hair. Protein is found in meat, such as red meat or chicken and is also found in eggs. If you are a vegetarian, protein can also be found in lentils and beans..Drink plenty of water. If you are dehydrated, then so is your hair. Dry hair breaks and splits more easily and therefore will not gain length.

I've heard castor oil is good for growing hair. I haven't tried it yet, but there are some people swearing by it.

Hi ajlasent, first of all don't be worrying for what had happened. It just happens oneday you know. Being a boy I'm not familiar with growing long hairs. Sorry for that. But one thing I say you , we just cant grow anything longer overnight. Moreover any external treatment would increase the percent by only a little. I couldn't find any of your new youtube videos regarding your 'little' hair lol. Anyhow get this damn thing out of your head and get along with the new hair. Try to style your little hair to some extent. That way you will get a new look and that will keep you interested. Wish your hair grows superfast!!!

Head massage with/without oil, apply henna on hair, apply egg white etc etc are good for hair.
