Q: My hair grows really slow. How can I speed up the process?

A: Everyone’s hair grows at different rates depending on genetics and the health of your hair. The healthier the hair, the more noticeable your hair growth will be. Healthy hair and ends don’t break off as fast as they are growing like they do on damaged hair.

While we can’t control genetics, we can control the health of our hair. Moisture is key, so deep condition your hair at least once every week. And make sure you trim your ends, as needed.

Nutrition also plays a key role, so make sure to eat healthy. A B supplement with Biotin has been proven to help with hair growth. Consult with your doctor prior to popping supplements though, to ensure the proper combination of vitamins and minerals for your overall health.
