Don’t think that the myth that trimming your hair to make it grow faster is true. Human hair grows around one half-inch each month, no matter how many times you trim it.

Trims can get rid of split ends, however, and that makes hair look great.
Limit blow dryer use. Heat from your blow dryer can damage your hair greatly, so attempt to dry it naturally.

If you towel dry your hair before you blow dry it, the hair will dry more quickly.
For an inexpensive and easy deep-conditioning treatment, follow the steps listed below. Conditioner will need to be applied while your hair’s wet; also, you will need to apply a healthy amount of conditioner to the scalp. Wrap a towel around your hair in order to keep the heat trapped.
