You can adopt my hair care routine to grow your hair fast and keep it long and healthy! I’m going to share EVERYTHING with you! I noticed that my hair has always grown faster than most people’s hair and it stays long and strong. If you want long hair as fast as possible, please book mark this page and study it!

What you can do TODAY to Grow Long Hair Fast

First let’s start speeding up your hair growth by feeding your scalp and conditioning your hair. I like to make sure my hair grows not only fast, but thick! Take 1 part Organic Castor Oil and 4 parts Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Place it in an empty shampoo bottle.

Next, Section your hair in half, starting at the ends – apply the oil mixture to your ends and squeeze in the oil with your hands. This will saturate your hair with the oils. Slowly work your way up by applying more oil to a section above the ends and gently work it down each time. Squeeze the excess down.

how to grow long hair fast – Important tip: Castor oil / Olive oil on your scalp every month!

As you get to your scalp, be generous with the oil and be sure to cover your whole scalp by working it in with your finger tips. Gently place your hair into a shower cap and let the oil penetrate into your scalp and hair for an hour. Your scalp will be nourished, making a perfect environment for your hair to grow fast! Your hair will also now have more elasticity meaning it won’t easily break. When you hair is strong, you can safely grow out your hair without the ends breaking off! Your hair will be in a better condition overall and look luscious after shampooing and conditioning. My favorite shampoo for growing long hair fast is called, Wen. I have a great review of Wen here. This helps make your hair grow fast! I use it three times a week! Make sure you wash your hair with a formula that does NOT have Sodium laureth sulfate in it! This is very important because it can slow down your hair growth! Feed your scalp with this method at least once every month or more if you can handle it! If your scalp isn’t healthy and it itches,  use this Natural Itchy Scalp Remedy – 1 Minute Cure!

The Best Brush and Comb for you to use – Grow Long Hair Fast

Best brushes and comb for long hair

These are the ONLY brush and comb I use on my hair! They will help grow your hair fast! Use a Hair Pick to gently remove tangles. Start from your ends and slowly work your way up. NEVER be in a hurry to brush your hair! Have patience and realize it will pay off with long gorgeous hair. This wide tooth comb is the gentlest way to comb your hair besides your fingers. Never tug hard on it, slowly if you encounter a snarl, pick up that section of hair stuck in your comb and try to untangle it with your fingers and pick it apart. Tip: Try some infusium 23 leave in conditioner in that one snarl to slide it free.

Once your hair is tangle free, use your boar bristle brush. Starting at the ends and slowly work your way up. It’s best to divide your hair in half when doing this. Once your reach the top of your head, do some long gentle strokes from your scalp to the ends. This gets your natural hair oils distributed to the ends and will add incredible shine and smooth your hair to silk perfection. You hair will look like it’s been straightened with a flat iron.

To get the silkiest smooth, straight hair naturally, I use my Conair Ceramic Wooden Boar Cushion Brush. This brush is amazing and the best boar bristle brush I’ve tried, and I’ve tried a lot! I love the weight of the wooden handle and the shape of the brush head. There’s even a padded cushion to ensure your hair will be gently brushed and stress free! I only use this when my hair is dry or just a tiny bit damp. This brush also helps make you hair more shiny. The protective oils on your scalp need to be distributed to the ends of your hair. This brush is one of the only brushes that can do that! When the ends of your hair are protected, the hair is less likely to break. Most people that cannot grow out their hair have dry hair ends and that hair easily breaks or gains tons of split ends. When their hair is constantly breaking off at the ends it looks like their hair is not growing. The ends of their hair can possibly break off in longer lengths than the length the hair is actually growing at the roots! People that have very short hair usually suffer from this problem. This boar bristle brush helps make your hair strong, protected, and helps stimulate blood flow to your scalp. This brush can be your secret weapon for faster hair growth potential! Your hair will also look very shiny! The cushioned head of this brush feels relaxing on my scalp, making it a joy to use! Speaking of blood flow to your scalp, don’t forget to massage your scalp as mentioned below.




weird secret for long hair

My weird habit for long hair, so relaxing!

My weird habit that makes my hair grow FAST

I have this weird habit I do when I’m at home watching tv or just relaxing. I LOVE to massage or just touch my scalp roots using my finger tips. I love how my scalp feels well conditioned and my hair feels silky I can’t help but feel it! This brings a lot of blood flow to the area and feeds your hair follicles making your hair grow. I do this every day! With all the good quality products I use, my hair feels luxuriously soft. I know it’s weird but hey, I have 30 inches of hair.( that’s 76.2 centimeters) Never pull or tug the hair, just massage the scalp. You can also bend over like you’re about to touch you toes, this would give you lots of areas to massage your scalp and increase blood flow there for fast hair growth. This is a great trick to make your hair grow faster.

As an authority of skin care and beauty products, my goal is to inspire and educate women providing them honest reviews of beauty products and sharing my own personal results. I am inspired by Estée Lauder and her quote, "Beauty is an attitude. There's no secret. Why are all brides beautiful? Because on their wedding day they care about how they look. There are no ugly women - only women who don't care or who don't believe they're attractive."

    • Try this every night before you go to sleep, wash it all out with a sulfate free shampoo. I love the loreal sulfate free shampoo! good luck

      • Thank you! Should I leave the oils in my hair overnight and wash them out in the morning or should I just leave the oils in for a certain amount of time and then wash my hair before I go to bed?

  3. Hi! I was looking around the web to find some good advise on how to grow my hair faster and I am so glad I saw your blog, I wrote down all your tips and I can’t wait to see my hair grow strong and healthy faster! Just asking if you have any natural hair mask for strong and healthy hair that can also grow hair faster.. thank you :)

    • Yes, please read all the hair articles on my website. Thank you for reading!

  4. Hey jen, I would like to say thank you for creating this blog but I have a quick question about the olive oil part. How much do u eat a day? a tablespoon? I would like to try it.

    • Hi Shay! Thanks, I’m glad you like my blog! Everyday, I eat olive oil! I pour at least 1 Tbsp. onto my vegetables and rice or pasta. It’s good for your overall health too!

      • Awesome!! Thanks.

  5. Hi i am really anxious to try these products and remedies. Are these products available at any store or do you buy them especially on an online site and if so can you recommend where i can buy from. I live in the UK not sure where you are from and if products are the same here. Thank you

  6. Can coconut oil replace olive oil?

    • Yes, you can substitute the olive oil, I just prefer it.

  7. Hi Jen
    Your blog is awesome and I want to try your tips on growing hair long fast.
    Many tell me to cut my hair every 2 or 3 months to keep splint ends away, is that true because I don’t want to cut my hair at all

    • Hi Brittany,
      If you keep cutting your hair, you will never be able to see it grow. Salons will tell you to “keep your hair healthy” by visiting them every 2 to 3 months. It actually just makes their wallets healthy. Split ends happen when the hair’s protein becomes stripped and the strand unravels. If you just deep condition your hair once a week, there shouldn’t be a problem. Once your hair has grown out, feel free to get a trim.

      • As a professional stylist cutting your hair regularly won’t slow or stop progress. If your hair is healthy you don’t need to take hardly any off with a trim (1/4 inch or less) because split ends can not be repaired! If split ends go uncut they will break.

        • That’s true, a haircut won’t make your hair grow slower. HOWEVER, many women are going too often for haircuts! –

            Many women are cutting off more hair every month than what they’re actually growing per month

          . This could make it seem like their hair isn’t growing.

  8. Hello, I love your blog. I know this isn’t related to this post in any way but I figured since you know lots about hair growth I would ask.
    I’ve been told.that hair extensions help grow hair? If so, how do they help grow hair? And how fast do they grow hair every month?

    • Hi Taylor,
      No, in fact constant wearing of extension will stress out the hair roots and you will have temporary if not permanent bald spots. Extensions should rarely be worn. Many celebrities have horrible hair lines and bald spots because of their career. Also, anytime you wear your hair excessively tight, it stresses the hair roots, causing them to release the hair resulting in bald spots. I hope that helps answer your question. I remember the black girls in middle school growing up, they had major bald spots at a young age. It’s really sad.

  9. Wow thanks for these tips!!i was really eager to try this out and i went out shopping to buy the oils,but it is really hard to find castor oil here in my country,so can i substitute castor oil with coconut oil?thanks :)

  10. hi jen, your hair is beautiful and so are you! I wanted to ask does your hair grow faster since you haven’t been dyeing it blonde? I was considering going natural and not having my hair dyed at all because I am more concerned at this point in my life (I’m 40) about growth and and length, not color. a couple of years ago I had a lady bleaching my hair who made it break bad and it wasn’t growing. My current hair dresser is great and fixed my hair and it is growing: It’s blonde but not bleached but I wanted to ask if I just totally had him stop dyeing it totally would it grow faster? I’m debating whether to keep having it dyed or take a break. Thanks Jen!

    • Hi Rachel,
      It feels like my hair did grow faster as soon as I stopped bleaching my hair but that’s because my ends were breaking off faster than it was growing! As soon as I properly conditioned my bleached hair and strengthened my hair, My hair grew much better and faster. Using lots of olive oil treatments, wen, and going sulfate free really helped! I’m glad your hair dresser fixed your hair. Just keep your hair deeply moisturized (for elasticity) and your hair will keep its length!

  11. hi, I am trying to grow out my hair, I’d love long hair at least ot my shoulder blades its a little past my shoulders now. I dye my hair occasionally since I’ve had gray/white hair since I was 12 ( thanks to my dad lol). I’m trying hard to take all my vits daily and only washing my hair e dry other day or so using a cleansing conditioner similar to wen. Any tips on covering my grays and not messing up my hair growth regimen ? Thank so much for all your info.

    • Hi Trish, Have you heard of henna dye? It’s a safe natural dye commonly used in India. It’s great for covering grays and because it’s so close to you scalp, it will help you hair growth. Jen

  12. Thanks! <3
    Yes, I wouldn’t use ammonium laureth sulfate either! And Sodium laureth sulfate and Sodium lauryl sulfate is same thing. Just spelling. I hope that helps. Good luck!
