Other ways to encourage healthy hair growth
Increase your intake of sulphur and silica (if there is a deficiency), and reduce exposure to excessive heat (from styling tools), ultraviolet light (from sunlight), and chemical processes (like hair colouring).

In the same way a tree needs healthy roots to flourish, you need nourishment at the scalp to help hair grow healthier and stronger. Massage also keeps the scalp and root fibre healthy.
Use good-quality heat-styling tools and brushes, and replace them occasionally as tools can become extra hot over time and damage hair more easily. And always use a heat-protecting lotion or spray, preferably one that also hydrates.
If you’re growing out a lob, working in a few layers and framing the face takes the edge off the squareness. For fringes, ask your hairdresser to angle the edges so they blend into the side lengths; with longer fringes, feather the edges to create softness and control the shape.
Not cutting your hair and thinking that will make your hair grow longer is wrong – regular trims remove any damaged or split ends, and help hair to grow stronger and healthier.
