    Default Can i make my hair grow 2 inches a month?

    Look.... when i was depressed i chopped my hair off, i always wanted long hair so it feels like a HUGE setback! My hair is curly (3b/3c) but it grows fast like maybe an inch a month, but i want it to grow faster. I know it possible so how can i make that happen? be positive please and DO not give me that ''1/2 inch speech'' because i ve seen people grow their hair out fast like 6/7 inches in 6/7 months. Thank you guys and please cheer me up

    If people have grown 6/7 inches in 6/7 months that's only 1 inch per month .... Sorry to say it but 2 inches per month is very unlikely. You could try scalp massages though, as well as castor oil (that's worked on my lashes and brows), or something called monistat. Exercise regularly, and eat well.

    Back to SL! - Heading for APL right now, and micro trimming to maintain thickness. Final goal = BSL. How long will it take?

    If you really want some fast growth look into protein shakes i got about 2" a month and eat lots of protein as well

    I know some people here use Monistat to promote hair growth. 2 Inches per month seems sooo much, but if you're getting one, you could boost that to 1.5" or something.

    Just look around for Monistat threads, and also for hair growth threads. I have seen a few of them, and all the posters swear by the remedies listed.

    BTW: keep in mind. It could work, but there's no guarantee of that.

    If you rub cheese on your head, it will make your hair grow 5 inches a month! I know it sounds strange, but it's actually the secret that all the most senior members of lhc use! That's why lhc members are always mentioning cheese and have a dancing cheese emoticon. Shhhh, don't tell anyone though, it's a secret!

    Everyone has a maximum growth rate, and yours might not be the same as the next person's. That's OK -- we're not all the same. I've had a couple months of freakish growth, which I can't attribute to anything other than travelling; it wasn't something I kept up for more than a month or two, though. The fastest I've ever heard of a person being able to sustain was one member who managed 3 inches/month with the right combination of supplements and maybe massage and stuff. A lot of that was genetic giftedness, though.

    Obviously, the first thing you have to do is make sure that your nutrition and health are optimal. All the tricks in the world won't help you if you're hypothyroid or anemic or not eating enough nutrients to have the leftovers to make hair. Eat clean, eat well, exercise, sleep plenty, manage stress, address any nagging health issues, and generally maximize your well-being.

    Here are tricks that work for some people (not everyone, and it may have side effects, so do some reading before running to the store): Some people get more growth when supplementing biotin. Do some research on the positives and negatives of this before you start and realize that it gives a lot of people massive acne. Another trick that seems to get a lot of people to get absurd growth is rubbing the scalp with miconazole nitrate cream (Monistat's the major US name brand, and yes I mean the stuff you use for yeast infections and/or athlete's foot). Severe headaches can be a side effect of this. ETA: Some people start shedding hair when they do this, too -- it definitely doesn't work for everyone.

    Cream cheese is probably the easiest to apply, but cheddar is worth the extra effort.

    I use Monistat but I've never measured my exact growth each month. I guess you could try Monistat.
