Some of the way can make your hair grow longer is by eating a healthy diet, using a natural conditioner or by using homemade shampoo. You should also massage the scalp of your head to promote blood circulation and cut the split ends.

Using sulfate-free shampoos and petroleum, mineral oil, alcohol and/ or wax - free hair products. Alcohol is drying on the scalp and makes hair dry and brittle over time. Petroleum, mineral oil,and wax clogs hair follicles and slows growth. The kind of alcohol found in conditioners are alright because its a moisturizer. Deep conditioners work well too. The more natural the products are, the better they are for overall hair health. Keep in mind that hair grows on average an 1/2 inch per month. Using olive oil is good for the hair as a natural moisturizer and conditioner, so is coconut oil and shea butter. Castor oil is great for thickening hair as well as conditioning.
Use a sulphate free or natural shampoo. Keep your scalp healthy and use a natural bristle brush. Use as little heat or chemicals as possible and use a good conditioner/olive oil once a week. No matter what the commercials say, split ends do not "heal", have your ends trimmed when they start looking fuzzy. I use biotin as a supplement for hair and nails.
the folic acid in prenatal vitamins cause rapid hair growth, but its not just on your head i should warn you. im 8 1/2 months pregnant and have to shave my armpits every day cause the hair grows bk so quickly.
Eat lots of B vitamins. Also don't use too much heat. You can also help by regularly trim your hair to get rid of split ends. Use lots of shampoo and conditioner (don't overdo it though). If you have really dry hair you can do an warm olive oil or Keritan treatment. Scalp massages can also help, no matter how stupid it sounds. hope i helped!
Just try to keep it healthy so you prevent breakage. The thing is, our hair grows at a rate that is fairly constant and no elixir can make it grow faster. Here is some further info about hair growth http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_hair_growth
i recently had to suck it up and cut all the dead ends out of my hair (it was so short) but it has grown faster and more beautifully. tips from me would be not to use heat on your hair at all! that's how you get best results in little time. massage your scalp every night (NO FIGURE TIPS) take both hands. place one on top of the other, and press down on your head and move your hands back and forth all around your head. this increases blood flow on the scalp. eat an orange everyday vitamin C makes hair supper shinny and soft. or you can take a multi vitamin, B vitamins are very important such as B12 and biotin. use warm water (not hot) when taking showers and rinse conditioner with cold water. use a shampoo and condition with vitamins in it or no sulfates (they dry out your hair making it prone to damage) i use WEN and i fell in love with it. my hair has never been so healthy :) hope this helps.
