Help! MY HAIR WON'T GROW

Help! MY HAIR WON'T GROW

Dear Sugar
I've cut my hair super short - and I am regretting it now. I want it back. I eat healthy and take vitamins. What else can I do to speed up the hair growth process? Dedicated Danielle

Dear Dedicated Danielle
Definitely take Vitamin B12. The benefits are countless and it's been proven to help prevent hair loss. You can take it as a supplement in addition to finding it naturally in chicken, fish, eggs and milk.

Also take Vitamin A. It's an antioxidant that helps produce healthy sebum (remember me from yesterday) in the scalp. You can find Vitamin A in fish liver oil, milk, cheese, eggs, carrots, apricots, peaches, meat and most dark green veggies like spinach and broccoli.

And I know the idea of getting a haircut seems like the exact opposite of your goal. but you MUST get regular haircuts every six weeks. Even just getting a light dusting on the dead ends will help the hair grow.

Something I've learned is that highlights are the biggest secret in the biz for limp, short or fine hair. Highlights expand hair cuticles to create the look of a fuller head of hair. Who knew?

Just remember that it will take anywhere from two to three months to see results. Keeping that in mind, your hair also grows about a quarter of an inch every month... so be patient. Unfortunately, you aren't going to get your long hair back over night.

It could also be a skin condition so consider seeing a doctor who may fix problem or refer you to a dermatologist, nutritionist or an endocrinologist. Failure of hair to grow could mean several underlying health issues.
