Keep your hair in good condition, use conditioning treatments every week or so and try to stay away from using a hairdryer/straighters etc every day. Buy a heat protect spray or cream to use when you do use heat on your hair.

Personally I don't agree with the getting your hair cut every 6 weeks thing, I end up just getting cut off what has grown! So I don't go to the hairdressers more than 3-4 times a year and stay ontop of the split ends myself by cutting them out of my hair sometimes (you'll also find this is a great stress relief!). It means you only cut out what is actually damaged.

Other than that I've heard getting someone to massage your scalp every day (or doing it yourself) can help but personally I've not tried it. There are tablets supposed to make your hair grow faster but please stay away from them!

I know how frustrating it can be, my hair grows ridiculously slowly and all my friends hair kind of just shoots out! You'll get there though

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

As already said, the hair needs cutting sometimes before it continues to grow

There's not much you can do to make your hair grow any faster. You just need to keep it in good condition, wash it often and condition it. You also need to get it cut every now and then, just the dead ends off.

And apart from that, you just need to wait!

I'm trying to do the same thing and it's taking forever! My step mum is a wizard with hair and uses loads of forgein shampoos and stuff but it's all very expencive, I suggest just washing your hair(like said before) and using conditioner that you know if good for your hair, like i use herbal essences for dry hair...it rocks! haha, As for split ends, they are hard to keep a hold of and when i go to trim them down they usually cut it back to where i started! So i end up just snipping the accuall ends of like Rachel said to do :P
But just be patient, i've started putting my hair in a pony tail every day so it just forget about it, so when it gets to the lenght i want it i can start wearing it down again

Good luck! xxx
