And brush your hair 100 times every night and morning with a good bristle brush (massages the roots and stimulates them), and listen to string music - Mozart and the like. Weirdly, a study (where do they think of these things) found this causes hair to grow faster. Certainly explains all those long-haired musicians.

Saw 'MSM' recommended for Hair growth in the Sunday Times alternative section. It's around €16 for 90 tablets, but you have to take 3 a day..!
Completely organic.

where do you get that? i have really slow growing hair and it's my 21st in june and would love to have long hair for it although i don't mind putting extensions in it as they look great. i read somewhere that trimming your hair doesn't stimulate folicles to grow as hair is just dead tissue and trimming every month (which a few have told me to do) would only take off the bit that your hair has grown that month as the average person's hair only grows 1/2 inch a month. all regular trimming would do is prevent split ends but keep it to about 10 weeks in between trimming. i've started to take a hair & nail multivitamin (can't remember the name) but i'll let you all know if i notice a change at all.

There's a hair and nails formula they sell in that health shop in Grafton St, is it called Holland & Barrett or something like that? Anyway they've a jar of 60 pills that are for improving your hair and nails, I've been taking them for about two weeks because my hair and nails were WRECKED. My nails anyway have got stronger, not sure about my hair yet. It sounds similar to Pharmaton but it's on special offer right now so it's only two or three euro a jar

It's made of the same stuff.

Kelp tablets in health food shops are supposed to help hair growth.

Im going to let ye in on a little secret that works and doesnt cost a fortune (cause Im a really nice person).

Rosemary oil. You can get it almost anywhere. Massage/brush it into your scalp/hair once/twice a week. Leave over night, if possible, and wash out.

Not only stimulates growth, but makes your hair shiny and feel good.

u know, when i was about 14 someone told me that if you put vaseline on your eyebrows (if you over-plucked, which lets face it, if you're plucking your eyebrows at 14 you are bound to do) it makes them grow faster. so me being a dummy, put it in my hair (14!!!) didnt wash out so well... so does rosemary oil wash out ok?

my hair got really thin about a year ago and I started taking Nourikin Tablets - they really work my hair is now half way down my back never seen it grow so fast even the hairdresser was shocked. They cost about 60 euro for a month-2 months supply but well worth it. Also trim hair every 6-8 weeks i do this too. explain to the hairdresser that you are growing it and just want the bare ends off. If you are going to use straighteners use GHD oil.

MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is probably what you need. Makes hair (and nails) grow much faster than usual. It is also claimed to have lots of other qualities including:

*
MSM supports maintenance of strong, healthy body tissues by donating sulfur for formation of sulfur tie-bars between connective tissue proteins. *
*
MSM supports normal gastrointestinal function. *
*
MSM improves the body's resistance to adverse physical stress. *
*
MSM supports mental alertness and maintenance of healthy mood. *
*
MSM promotes the body's processes that heal tissue. *
*
MSM helps modify the physiologic response to allergens. *
*
MSM supports normal lung function. *
*
MSM supports normal relaxation of muscles. *
*
MSM supports normal joint function. *
*
MSM helps maintain healthy skin.*


Can't guarantee the accuracy of a lot of these but it will make your hair grow super fast. Its available at a lot of online pharmacies etc. One of the cheapest places is www.bodybuilding.com even though its in the US.

Also try www.bulknutrition.com A good cheap brand is NOW MSM. Be sure to get it in tablet form, the powder is rancid tasting

I guess that's why my hair grows too fast

Brushing your hair is actually bad for it, it encourages your hair to break off and the ends to split. Once your ends start splitting they continue to split up the hair shaft.

I dont know if its still on the market but my mother used to use this stuff called American Bay Rum on my sisters scalp because her hair was very thin.. She used to massage it into her head and it really made a difference....

There are also tablets called Perfectill that you can get in Boots and they help your hair, nails and skin to blossom... I took them for a while but they're a bit dear.. They did make a difference though..

Regular trimming is also essential...

IMHO
