My hair is right below my shoulders in the middle of my shoulder blades and it's the longest it's been. I want my hair to grow long and be thick but I can't find anything to help it. Can anyone give me any help to make it grow?

I definitely cannot do without conditioner. If I don't use it, my scalp feels very dry and itchy. And there would be a lot of difficulty getting the tangles out with the brush or comb. I like my hair to be tangle free and very soft to the touch. Usually I don't use the leave in conditioners.If you do get that brand, get it in the spray bottle. It's easier to put on your hair.

I would suggest shen-min vitamins, they are hair vitamins, and also biotin 1000 mil. You can get shen-min at the health food store or gnc store. Also biotin is really good for your nails. Also a biotin enriched shampoo & conditioner will help.

Here are some homemade tips Massage the scalp for 10 to 15 minutes after bathing with water. This stimulates the blood circulation and strengthens the hair follicles in the scalp. Massage the scalp and hair with coconut milk or Aloe Vera gel. Leave it for ½ hour, and then rinse with warm water. Repeat 3 times a week. Massage into the scalp and hair honey with egg yolk. Leave for a 1/2 hour, then rinse.Massage almond oil on scalp 2-3 times a day, daily. This will stop further hair loss. Rinse hair with a mix of apple cider vinegar and sage tea to help hair grow .

Hair texture is genetically based. But there are several products now a days that can be used. If you have Aloe Vera plant, you can slice it then rub the juice on your scalp. The transparent one, jelly-like. Try it once a day. Others use MAINE and TAIL shampoo. It's the horse's shampoo it has an ingredient that makes hair grow and become fuller. If you can avoid using strong hair conditioners please do so. Or if you shampoo your hair everyday, make sure to lather the shampoo first with a little water, in that way it will become less concentrated. Thus making it subtle to your scalp. Also, there are treatments that salons offer today, which will make your hair thicker,it's just a little bit pricey, because it will take several sessions. And also based on my experience with hair trimming, I have a haircutter who really makes my hair grow faster. I think it's the way she cuts it. If I had my hair cut by other barbers, it takes a long time for it to grow longer. You can try other salons, or haircutter. If you find her cut making your hair grow easily in a short span of time, let her be your regular barber. Goodluck to you!

well my grandmother used to trim my hair at the bottom saying that will make it grow. as far as making it thick, that is hard, ask your pharmacist. Maybe stuff like rogain may work. I really don't know.
