Issue by Chloe: How can I increase my hair extended?
Im a swimmer so my hair splits easily with chlorine and things. I know that if you do not minimize the hair it wont develop, so i go to get haircuts each couple of months to get rid of the break up ends but it just doesnt seem to increase without splitting, and when they trim the break up ends off it goes again to the original size…So how can i expand my hair out longer with out possessing it split?

Also braid ur hair to tore longer it really works and stop using heat on hair
I been doin this all the summer and my hair has grown about 3 inches
I scrunch it everyday
Hope this helps
Don’t do anything to it and put it in a pony taik often. Change your shampoo and conditioner type. Ones for breakage or damaged hair, even if your hair isn’t damaged it will help with the split ends.
Let me start by stating that there is not a shampoo or conditioner that promotes hair growth unless is it prescribed by a physician and contains either “Rogaine”, “Minoxidil”, “Propecia” or “Nioxion”. The only draw back to using these products is you have to use them for the rest of your life. If you stop you will lose what the product has grown in.
Normally you will lose up to 100 hairs a day; every 30 days or so you will lose more due to replacement, a new follicle is pushing an old one out. The most common reasons for hair loss is ether medication, stress, or illness. If you feel your hair loss is excessive you should see your doctor to make sure it is not caused by the latter.
The only way you can grow healthy hair is to eat a healthy diet high in protein (Hair is composed of “keratin” hard protein) and take prenatal vitamins (If you are an adult woman.) If you are underage or male eat a healthy diet high in protein and take hair and nail vitamins.
I had a client who was pregnant and taking prenatal vitamins and her hair grew twice a fast as normal. It normally takes about 6 to 8 weeks before you start seeing results.
Do not forget to exercise regularly. Not only is it great for you but it will get your blood flowing and feed the follicles fresh nutrients.
Hair usually grows ¼ to ½ inch every 4-6 weeks.
When you shampoo your hair you should manipulate your scalp vigorously; every other day.
In order to grow healthy hair your scalp needs to be clean; by not shampooing you are defeating your efforts to grow healthy hair. I recommend shampooing every other day using a shampoo for chemically treated hair; even if your hair is not chemically treated. Shampoo that has been formulated for chemically treated hair has less detergent than a shampoo that has been formulated for normal hair. Detergent will remove to many natural oils and cause your hair to be dry.
Shampoo will not make your hair thicker. In order to do this the shampoo would have to create more hair follicles in your scalp; man cannot create a hair follicle.
Also you need to have a trim every 6-8 weeks to prevent split ends. A hair shaft that has a spit end is damaged beyond repair. If you do not have your hair trimmed to get the split end off, it will eat there way up the hair shaft like a “Pac-man” and you will end up with split ends from tips to roots. There is not a shampoo or conditioner that will repair a split end. The only repair for a spit end is to have it cut off. While there are shampoo and conditioners out, that make the claim of repairing split ends all they do is put either a wax or plastic coating over the hair shaft; when the coating wears off the spit is back.
It is very important to brush your hair not only does it distribute the natural oils throughout your hair but it will stimulate the scalp and make your hair grow faster.
There is not a shampoo or conditioner or any other substance that will make your hair thicker. In order for this to happen the product would have to create a new hair follicles in your scalp. Man cannot create a hair follicle. The only options open to you is either a hair transplantation or extensions.
In closing let me state that trimming/cutting your hair will not make your hair grow. Hair does not grow from the tips like grass; it grows from the roots.

The best tip I can give you is when you have had a shower/bath instead of brushing your hair with a normal hairbrush, use a comb. Keep having your hair trimmed every month or so at the salon, and I suggest you do some research into some good chlorine treatments for hair because that would help as well. Using a comb after washing your hair prevents split ends but still effectively de-tangles it (I know chlorine is a big tangling issue!) Here are some chlorine hair treatments for you; Hope this helped:
