chilla- it prevents breakage so the split ends dont travel up the hair hence making it grow faster and more healthy (and i dont mean on the root lol)

It's not making it grow faster. It's making it break slower.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

Im a hairdresser in the making ;) here's a tip. Healthy hair grows quicker. shampooing and conditioning opens and shut and um repair? the cuticles in the hair cells (forgive me if im wrong im very tired and trying to use my sleeping brain) and so shampooing and conditioning hair really helps to keep it healthy while also pretty. also masssaging near the roots may help spread blood flow as we do that by massaging the clients head very slowly and gently for about 5minutes. Who knows if it would actually encourage growth but honestly, you never know. Hell I think I might try it myself and see how it goes :) it wouldnt hurt trying if you had time lol.

I honestly haven't been shampooing since it's cold, but in a few weeks it'll be warm enough I can do it again. I use a conditioner spray often though, and baby oil to detangle and soften. I will try massaging! Even if it does nothing, I'm sure it would feel good!

tayz- i have been told that too from the ladies, massaging near the root helps the hair grow also if you LIGHTLY pull while massaging it.

chilla- hence helping it grow healthier, how will your hair ever grow if its being broken all the time buy split ends... you can let your hair go 6 months with out a trim but when you go in your just going to have to take off inches (becasue of split ends) instead of taking of very tiny amounts every 4-6ish to weeks
