While growing out your hair, it may be challenging for you to figure out how to style your hair. However, it’s important to remember that the in-between stages are temporary and your desired hair length and style is at the end of the journey. Because hair grows about roughly a quarter to three quarters of an inch each month, you will need to care for your hair with these tips.

8 Tips to Growing Out Your Hair

1. Change your part

While you are letting your hair grow out, you can experiment with the way you part it. For example, if you usually part your hair in the middle, try parting it to the side. You may just like it.

2. Add some accessories

For long hair, you can pin back sections with headbands, scarves, and hats. For short hair, you can use barrettes, weaving them back to blend shorter pieces.

3.Product is your friend

There is no miracle product that instantly lengthens your hair, but the right hair products will nourish the scalp to make your hair thick and long. Hair-growth oils and caffeine treatments contain ingredients that are hydrating and stimulating for the scalp, respectively.

4. Deep condition your hair

To avoid breakage and broken ends, deep conditioning should be done once or twice a week. Adding a lot of moisture to your hair will make it stay strong. Hydrolyzed keratin and wheat protein are two hair-nourishing ingredients to look for, and silicones make hair brittle so stay away from deep hair conditioners that contain them.

5. Put hair extensions

Add some temporary hair extensions if you can’t wait for the regrowth period to end. They will give you some extra length where you like it while still giving you the look of longer hair.

6. Get regular trims

If you want to keep your hair looking great as you grow in, get regular trims. They’re essential to keep your hair looking good. If split ends and breakage aren’t trimmed, they may go upward, compromising growth.

7. Protect your hair from the heat

Heat can be very damaging to your hair, so avoid using it often. Protecting your hair with heat equipment (like a hair dryer) will help to prevent breakage because of unnecessary dryness.

8. Add texture and volume

In between the stages of growing your hair, it’s tricky to distinguish between a pixie and a bob. In these moments, experiment with hair products that add texture and volume, as well as enhance natural waves if you have them.
