Grow Hair Fast After a Bad Haircut

Each one of us has had a really bad haircut at some point, where we wished our hair would grow back in one night. Unfortunately, the thing with hair is that you can cut them as short as you want in order to fix a style, but once they’re cut, you can’t undo it.

The short answer is that there is no real way to grow hair any faster than their average natural rate of growth, which is half an inch per month. What you can do however is to ensure that your hair grow the fastest they can while you try to make do with your poor haircut.

In this guide we will give you some tips to ensure that your hair grow out as fast and as healthy as possible along with some ideas to survive till they get long enough.

    Take care of your diet

    Your hair need proteins to grow, and the best thing you can do for them is to ensure that your diet includes foods rich in proteins and vitamins. If possible, you should also look into safe vitamin supplements, usually available in pills and tablets.

    Avoid overusing hair styling products

    If you have had a bad haircut, hair styling products are naturally your friends. You can use them to make your hair somewhat presentable, but overuse of these products will stunt their growth and lead to more breakage.

    Use hair styling products only for special events and when going out in public, but avoid them during the course of your daily routine.

    Don’t wash your hair too often

    You should only wash your hair about twice a week to prevent excessive hair damage due to chemicals in shampoos and scrubbing during washes.

    Moreover, the natural oil produced by your scalp promotes hair growth and make them thicker, but is washed away when you use a shampoo.

    Brush your hair often

    Brushing frequently is also good for hair growth as it stimulates your scalp and straightens your hair, allowing them to grow more freely as compared to messy hair.

    Trim ends regularly

    While you might think this would make it worse, but trimming ends promotes hair growth by removing split ends. Hair growth automatically slows down as they grow longer due to weak ends and split ends. Trimming them helps maintain a steady growth rate.

    Get your hair restyled

    Sometimes it is wiser to get your hair cut even shorter, or going for a buzz cut if your stylist has ruined your hairstyle. The buzz cut might even suit you better, and while it will take longer to grow back, you won’t have to hide your hair anymore.

    Use hair clips and bands

    Girls can use hair clips to set their hair in place and prevent them from frizzing up even if they are cut really short. Similarly, using hair bands is also a good idea until your hair grow long enough for you to style them properly.
