About 4 years ago, while I was staring at my reflection in the mirror at work, I decided I was sick of my medium-length, boringly straight hair, and while I was driving home that evening, I stopped at the first hair salon I could find and asked them to cut bangs for me.
Which proved to be one of the biggest mistakes I’ve ever made in my adult life.
Not only did the stylist opt for that horrible 1980s feathered style of bangs, but she also cut them unevenly so that one side was twice as thick as the other, which required a lot of damage control from my actual hairstylist when I went to see him in tears the following afternoon.
It wasn’t pretty.
In fact, the only real compliment I ever got about those stupid bangs is that they made my “face look smaller.”
I’m not kidding.
So I asked my hairstylist if he had any secrets to teach me how to grow long hair FAST, but the only tips he gave me were to trim my hair every 6 weeks (which seems counter-productive to me??), take a multivitamin, and stop washing my hair so much.
Which wasn’t overly helpful.
But there are heaps of USEFUL tips and tricks on the internet that eventually did help me grow that horrible hairstyle out, and since I know some of you are just as desperate to learn how to grow long hair faster like I once was, I decided to do the research for you.
Because I’m nice like that.
