THERE IS nothing worse than getting a haircut and deciding you don’t like it.
But if you don’t like waiting months and months for your hair to grow back, there are things you can do to speed up the process.
Hairstylist Ricky Walters, owner of Salon 64 in London, advises going for a looser cut if you’re going to opt for something like a bob style.
And ask for diapers – because that also helps the growth process.
“Slicing the hair with layers and less stiff structure means your bob can grow out much easier than a heavy, formal bob,” he says. Charm magazine.
“Keep it loose and inhabit it.”
Although it’s known that getting a haircut can actually speed up the growth process, Ricky advises keeping as much length as possible during this in-between cut.
“After 6 months of growth, you should have enough hair to layer hair less like a bob and more like a chic collarbone cut,” he explained.
“Ask your stylist to keep the full length of your hair while adding a few loose layers to make the hair appear longer and less of a bob.”
There are also other things you can do to speed up your hair growth.
One tip is to avoid using heat on your hair, as an increase in temperature damages the hair fiber.
Instead of blow-drying, use a microfiber towel to absorb moisture after showering.
And skip the curling tongs – why not try a heatless curl method instead?
You should also carefully consider the hair products you use.
It’s important to use sulfate-free shampoo and silicone-free conditioner if possible, while regular use of leave-in conditioner or hair mask is also a good cry.
Plus, it’s worth investing in additional supplements during the hair growth process.
Collagen and biotin are vitamins that can help promote hair growth and are easily found both in multivitamins and as standalone products.
Other factors such as not having too hot shower water and sleeping on a silk pillowcase can also help you achieve your dream hair in less time.
