If you want to grow your hair long, it would not just happen if you leave them. Growing hair out needs some time and care. Using supplements and special products are common but natural ways are always healthier. To have a healthy and steady hair growth rate, you need to maintain a good diet and lifestyle.
Here are some extra tips for you on how to pass the whole process of growing hair out easily and healthily.
START LONG ON TOP
While growing hair out, you need to keep a few tips in mind.If you want to grow all of your hair on head long, then start by keeping your hair on the top of your head first.
Cut your hair of both sides and the back, short because they are easy to grow. They will grow really fast in comparison to the hair on top so your hair will look like a mess. Hair on top is difficult to grow and take some time.
So until you have almost 4 inches of hair on top, keep the hair on sides and back short. Once you have achieved that, free your hair on sides and back to grow out. This way you will have proper long hair.
but if you just want to give length to short hair, then it is easy because top hair take time to get noticed but the sides and back start to mullet pretty fast.
DO NOT SHAMPOO DAILY
Men go through whatnot daily like gym, sports etc. Hence it is in their routine to shampoo daily. Although professionals have recommended from time to time skipping the shampoo all together but that is not really possible.
So start by skipping like a day at first and then come to shampooing only thrice per week.
If hair gets too oily and become visibly greasy, dry shampoo is the best solution for it. Dry shampoo will not only make your hair non-greasy again by soaking up all the excess oil from the roots but also give a little volume to hair. This will make hair look good.
CONDITIONING IS A MUST
If you think that you have good hair so you do not need additional products to keep your healthy, you are wrong. Short hair always stays healthy because neither they are not sunburnt yet nor do they have issues like split hair. They are the most recent hair.
But growing hair out,need some effort. You need to continuously nourish them by conditioning and trimming the dead tips.
Take a dime of hair conditioner in your palm and apply it to you hair by sliding your hand from top to bottom of the hair. Then after waiting for 2 minutes, rinse your hair with cold water.

But always remember to keep the hair conditioner at least 1 inch far from the scalp.
Conditioning can be a little tricky for short hair. So start using a hair conditioner once you have a little longer hair.
BE PATIENT WITH AWKWARD PHASES
If you are growing out short hair especially a buzz cut, you will definitely be suffering through some awkward phases like you hair will stick out straight. But you can pass that with a little care too.
Keep visiting your barber from time to time. Just tell him what style you are going for and he will keep trimming your extra hair or give you a haircut that would not harm your process of growing hair out.
Do this every 2-3 months and you will be able to pass the awkward phase easily.
PICKING OUT A HAIR BAND
From the teeny man bun to long ponytails, this is the best part about growing hair out. But a common mistake is using a real rubber band.It just pulls on hair and breaks them painfully.
So it is better that you get a real hair band. They come in many natural shades so you can blend your hair with them.
