    Along with drinking water, go to a vitamin shoppe and get yourself Biotin and Follic Acid. Take 1 of each every day and you'll start to see a difference in your hair.

    Also, if you iron your hair a lot or apply a lot of heat to it this could cause your hair to break which is why it doesn't seem like it's growing

    Well, are you moisturizing and using any good deep conditioners weekly? Also ethnicity, hair texture and genetics play a part in hair growth also. Your hair is definitely growing you just cant see it. If you dye it you will notice the roots always growing out more and more, the only way your hair is the same length after 5 months is if its not hydrated enough and your ends are breaking, otherwise, your hair is growing. The length of hair you have is harder rmto notice when its growing versus shorter hlor longer hair. You have "inbetween" hair, its the worse. Let it simmer, it will be noticeably longer by January 2014. Not that its not growing now, but notice I said NOTICEABLY

    You probably have split ends. I know this sounds weird but the more often you get your hair trimmed, the faster it will grow.

    A couple years ago I bleached my hair 4 times in one month. It started to break and I have to shave my hair to an inch long. I got it lightly trimmed one a month for 10 months and it grew 10 inches that year.

    I always thought my hair didn't grow but really my ends were so damaged and spit that they just broke off.

    Don't use Castro Oil, that is used for hair loss and to make hair thicker.

    The hair is not just a part of your body and it is a symbol of beauty, status and health. It is important for you to take proper care of your health in order to prevent early hair loss. Learn here It is not a very serious problem and with a little bit of caution you will be able to prevent further hair loss. There are certain uncontrollable factors like pregnancy conditions or certain illness or genetic factors that will result in hair loss. But, this does not mean that you cannot do something about your hair loss.

    NEVER take supplements without your doctor's OK. Buy/use supplements at your own risk. "Many times patients will be taking over-the-counter medications or vitamins or homeopathic remedies not realizing that it can interfere with their regular medications or may build up unhealthy levels within in their body," said Dr. Rober Kershner, who's a surgeon with a background in biochemistry

    If you've straightened your hair in the past, it may grow slowly or none at all.

    Google: "Foods for Healthy Hair"… - or 10 Best Foods for Your Hair.…

    NO MATTER which link you picked, they all suggest the same foods. Your hair may be the fastest-growing tissue in the body but, unlike the skin, it cannot repair itself. That is why getting the right balance of vitamins and proteins is imperative. Don't expect to look like you've stepped out of a hair commercial the day after you've changed your diet. It is likely to take at least three months before you actually see tangible results. Hair is dead, but hair also has electrical energy; the negative charge of damaged hair can lead to flyways and unruly hair.

    Growing healthy hair doesn't come from a bottle or pills and hair products do not speed hair growth. Any hair oil, is another form to keep hair moisturized, nothing more. If you're in HS, your hair & nails should be growing normally, and as healthily as possible, since you're eating healthy foods. But when hair isn't growing as fast, it's because they've been tampered with: chemicals, hair straightening, etc. . .

    "You find people oiling hair every single day, the hair sweats and it doesn’t get washed. What do you think happens? It goes limp and becomes thin because it is not breathing,” Shamillah Mohammed, a hairstylist at SUQA, says.

    5 Hair MYTHS - BUSTED…

    “Old wives’ tales and ineffective products that claim to treat or rehabilitate hair often have a placebo effect because people want them to work,” says Davis-Sivasothy, author of “Hair Care Rehab,” ( “But many of these ideas and products actually do the opposite of what’s intended, and they delay the user from seeking out real solutions.”

    Davis-Sivasothy debunks the following common hair-care myths:

    • Myth: There’s a magic pill (or oil, serum or balm) to grow our hair faster, stronger or thicker. Unfortunately, no. Hair growth is genetically predetermined and controlled by our hormones. Unless the magic pill affects our genes or hormones, there’s no hope that it might make our hair grow. (This includes prenatal vitamins. Credit the upsurge in hormone levels during pregnancy for those vibrant tresses!) Basic vitamin supplements can offer slight improvements in hair quality, but only if our body truly lacks the particular vitamin or mineral being taken.

    Your hair is always growing. People's hair grows at different rates though. It's good that you drink water, and eat fruits and vegetables.. but you have to make sure that you're taking care of your hair very well because it's probably breakage that is making it seem like your hair isn't growing.
