    Default "Nothing can make your hair grow faster"

    What do you say in reply when they say something like this to you?

    I post on a topicless forum that is mainly frequented by females around my age. Someone asked about how to make their hair "grow faster", and I suggested taking MSM, as it has worked for me and other people on these forums at least. I was then told by a few people in a rather patronising way that "nothing can make your hair come out of your head faster".
    I tried to explain by saying that hair growth can slow if you are lacking in nutrients, and therefore speed up when you are getting what your body requires, but they werent having it. Its days later and its STILL bothering me more than it should, lol.

    To tell you the truth, I don't believe it, either, not unless you were severely deficient in something and corrected the deficiency.

    Really? Even after reading the posts people make about crazy growth spurts after taking a concoction of supplements/garden fertilisers, etc?

    If someone said that to me, I would.... agree with them. Nothing I've tried has made my hair grow any faster. I'm much happier if I just make peace with my growth rate and focus on treating it well as it grows.

    That said, there are certainly people on this board who have gotten results, so it's not impossible. If they don't want to believe it, fine. I wouldn't waste time arguing. I guess if you really are desperate to prove your point you could do a PubMed search and see if there have been any scientific studies on this sort of thing.

    I've been following their pictures, too; pictures don't lie.

    Naw, I am not bothered about proving a point, I just felt annoyed the way these people were like "No. This does not happen ever. Hair cant change growth rates. Youre stupid. The End" and they were especially condescending about it too, which is what really bothered me the most.

    Yeah, sounds like general rudeness. Some folks are just that way.

    What is MSM?

    To add, I definitely agree with spidermom. For most people nothing is going to really help but some people do need multivitamins to help balance them out. I am lactose intolerant so for me, I really need to take calcium (which I am not so good about doing...)

    I am not really interested so much in growing my hair faster, but if there were a product that touted longer hair life, and could prove it, I might jump on that bandwagon. I sometimes feel that my shed hair has died, or cycled out, prematurely.

    I am a NIOXIN fan because after many years of using it, and taking occasional breaks from it I have seen a noticeable decrease in shedding when I use it. I haven't yet found another product that I can definitely say works as promised.

    I also agree that growth is determined from what is going on inside the body. Nutrition, overall general health, and genetics determine growth rate.
