So you’ve seen your favorite celebs sporting short ‘dos here and there, and you’re suddenly inspired to cut your hair. You head to the salon and commit to the decision of finally trying on a new look. After an hour or so of chatting with your kind stylist and reading a magazine, you look into the mirror and poof, you hate it.
Thing is, we all make hideous mistakes. Sometimes, what works for others won’t necessarily work for you and we need to experience it to learn. When these unfortunate events happen—an awful stylist, wrong length, or even the wrong color—you need to stay calm and deal with it. You have two options: you either lock yourself in your room until you grow it out, or be a grown up and face the situation by finding ways to make your hair grow faster. We know, we can be impatient, too, but for this week’s #TipTuesday, we suggest you start scrolling down, quick!
1. Strategic Eating
Specific types of food contain certain vitamins or minerals that help with not just hair growth but overall hair health. Some examples are eggs (specifically the yolk) which contain omega-3 and biotin, almonds, which also have high biotin content, salmon, which is loaded with Vitamin D, protein, and Omega-3, and oysters, packed with zinc. Simply inject these to your diet and you’ll grow your hair in no time.
Biotin plays a key role in the body because of its many benefits. It supports the health of the skin, nerves, digestive tract, metabolism, and cells, to be exact. Maximize the benefits biotin can offer through a shampoo and conditioner or even a supplement.

3. Stressing over it is not going to help.
Your hair has feelings, too. Don’t you ever feel like when you’re in a bad mood, a bad hair day also adds up to it? Take it easy, get a massage, and try to focus on other things instead of picking on your hair. Do that and you won’t even notice your locks will be back to its long and shiny state.
4. Leave your hair alone.
Styling it relentlessly in the hopes of making it look better might actually make things worse. Give your blow dryer or iron a rest, okay? Applying heat to your locks everyday can cause even more damage and hairfall, and we wouldn’t want that.
