Heaps of ways. If you do a combinaton of internal treatments and external treatments, you will get the best results.
Externally, you can moisturize your hair with oils and hair masks. Oils: olive, coconut, flaxseed, avocado, argan. Olive is the cheapest thing and works just as good as anything else really, and its cheap. Don't heat it though, just shampoo your hair with warm water, pat your hair a little dry so its not dripping wet, and rub the oil liberally through your hair, including your scalp. Putting it in your hair this way will help your hair absorb the oil better, because for some reason it just does. Leave the oil in for as long as you want, the longer the better. Sometimes I leave it in for 2 or 3 days if I don't have to go anywhere, I just tie my hair in a bun on top of my head, and make sure to change my pillow cases. When you rinse it out, use a tiny bit of shampoo to help get the bulk off, but not as much shampoo as you would normally use when doing a regular shampoo.

Sometimes I just use conditioner to wash it out, and do the conditioner a couple of times, but it usually leaves a bit more build up than just a squirt of shampoo does. Let your hair dry naturally (or towel dry) rather than using a bow dryer. After its dry though, you can go ahead and use a blow dryer or straightener without frying your hair. If you'd rather not put oil through your hair, using a hair mask works as well. You can use mashed avocado, or scrambled eggs. When I do an avocado mask, I mash 1 or 2 up, and put some mayonnaise in it aswel to make it less thick, and go further. Plus mayo is good for your hair as well. Shampoo and pat dry your hair the same as the oil prep. Put a shower cap on after you've put it through your hair, and make sure to get it all the way to your scalp aswel. You don't have to leave the mask in for as long as oil, because after it dries it can be more of a hassle to wash out. 30-45 mins should do. I stand in the sun with avocado masks because I assume a little warmth in conjunction with the shower cap will increase absorbtion. Wash it out the same as you would with the oil, but you can blow dry it a bit if you wish without causing as much frying as oil would. When I use oil, I take the opportunity to massage my scalp as well, but you can do it it just with dry hair as well. Massaging your scalp increases blood flow, which makes the scalp healthier. The oil also nourishes the scalp skin, which is good for it, just like any other skin benefits from moisturizing. Rubbing a few dots of argan oil or coconut oil in just on normal days isn't a bad idea either, and makes your hair look extra shiny (just don't use it on your roots because it will make your hair look dirty oily). You can do all this stuff until you're blue in the face, but without an adequate diet, it won't do much good. Smoking, drinking and doing drugs also affect the health of your hair, just like any other part of your body because they are toxins. Eating vegetables and omega-3 fats are the best ones for your hair.

The* egg mask nourishes your hair with proteins, whilst everything else strengthens it as well by moisturizing it. Both methods strengthen it and help it less prone to breaking. Nourishing your scalp + good diet helps it not to fall out.

Not a worry. Thought I'd save you the time I spent looking it all up and trying things out. (+ I copied and pasted it from my earlier answers because it seemed a fairly regular questioni).
All the best!

is that even possible?

some say that the hair grows faster in the summer. maybe you can turn up the temperature inside and use stronger lightbulbs. i doubt this will work though

I don't know about food products to put on your hair, but trimming it regularly helps it grow faster. Also, vitamins help. Prenatals are great for hair, skin, and nails... And they are perfectly fine to take even when not pregnant.

Take biotin. It's a b-vitamin that's good for your hair, skin and nails.

Nothing you apply to your hair will have that effect. Any product which says it will do this is out-and-out lying. Human hair grows at the rate of about 1/2 inch a month. You can affect how shiny and glossy your hair is by eating a healthy diet, and even that will take time to reveal itself.

I have very very long hair but there is really no way to make your hair grow faster. typically everyones hair grows around the same each month. a quarter inch give or take each month. there are ways to strengthen hair against breakage however. some products may seem as if they are making your hair grow longer faster, but infact they are protecting your hair from breakage, nourishing the scalp, etc.
coffee, roemary tea,and beer..yes, beer that contains hops is great for scalp stimulation

A few years back I got my haircut to just on my shoulders. It didn't grow AT ALL in length for 2 whole years, because I was malnourished. Just saying, healthy body breeds healthy everything :)
But you're right, most healthy people's hair grows.

agree with the malnourished part. I had forgotten about that.
