First and formost I used the search bar and I couldn't find anything.

I want to grow my hair out (obviously)to about below shoulder length. How long will this take? And on past attempts at growing my hair out I usually end up with a mullet looking thing growing on the back of my neck or a bowl cut. Does everybody go through this?

EDIT: Perhaps I should have worded this differently. I was mainly asking if this mullet thing is normal. And I have straight hair.

What kind of hair do you have. Is it really straight or kind of curly?

Straight like Jerry Cantrell or curly like pubes?

Unfortunately I don't know of anything that increases the rate at which hair grows. You'll just have sit and wait.

Tips on growing it out... uh... don't cut it?

Sarcasm aside, yeah, I had retarded looking mid-length hair for a while. Pretty sure it happens to everybody. It took me about... 1 - 1 1/2 years, maybe, to get a length I was satisfied with.

EDIT:

Dude, it's hair, it grows as it pleases.
If you got the crazy mullet thing going, get the back trimmed a bit...
lol.
Dunno what else to tell ya.
#10
idk, i never got the mullet thing going on. If that happens, trim it a little bit till the bangs catch up. It should grow even.

Once its long, just trim the split ends ( like an inch) every 2-4 months.

I wouldn't worry too much about curls. I had completely straight hair until it reached shoulder-length, now it's all curly and ****.

mmm... don't cut it??

Now seriously if your hair starts looking funny or something, trim (sp?) it.

trim the tips every month or so to even it up, and taking the tips off will make ur hair grow quite a bit faster, compared to not cutting it at all for a year.
#16
It took me a long time to grow my hair out, but thats my fault I guess. I would get a hair cut every month or so to make sure it grew out even and didn't look like ****. It might have taken longer than usually but it was worth it.

Either that or you can say "F U majesty" and just grow it out without a care in the world, not much else to choose from IMO.

I've heard that combing it obsessively, washing it with cold water, and getting about a quarter inch taken off every few weeks makes it grow more quickly than pushing until you shit yourself.

EDIT: My hair does the mullet thing, too. I just let it go and fix it when the rest of my hair is the length I want it.
I like Fall Out Boy.
That is all.

To actually contribute to this thread.
Go back to the barber every couple of weeks for shaping/trimming.
I get really weird medium length hair (I have curls) but it looks good short and long.

You know, you have a really cool awesome taste in music. Because it matches mine a lot, and my opinion is fact.


My hair is pretty long, but it's also very curly, so I've got kind of a long Jew-fro thing going on, but it's ok because I'm Jewish.

What I did was honestly, just not get haircuts very often, but my hair has that "I just get up out of bed look" so maybe you're not going for that.

*raise hand*

I have a jew fro

I used to have straight hair up until like age 13 and now its curly. Im trying to grow it out long like jimmy page but i dunno if its gonna work out. It just gets so damn frizzy sometimes. And should i thin it out or just let it grow?

Last time i tried to grow it out it just kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger.
#26
I totally didn't read that, but just wait it out.

My hair is about 6 to 7" past my shoulders and I've been growing for about 2 years.

Then again everyones hair grows at different rates.

If you want to speed up the growth rate use conditioner and it will give your hair nutrients to grow a little faster.

hell id join a group.

But last time i think when i thinned it out it just grew out bigger instead of longer. So ive been growing out for about 4-5 months now with only like 2 haircuts and i just got it trimmed up.

It goes down to about the collar of my shirt. But it waves out so its alot longer than it looks.

I know there are a few things to kind of accelerate the process.

One thing I've heard is that Iron accelerates hair growth. I want to say that bananas have a lot of iron, but I don't want to tell you to eat a bunch of bananas for no reason, so research that maybe.

A little trim every 5 weeks or so will help you control how it grows to avoid the mullet. And if you really want to speed up the hair growth, go to the GNC and ask them about it.

They have this thing that promotes hair growth, it also makes all your nails grow faster too. You can't have one without the other, evidently.

well, if I was going to get lots of iron, I'd probably just eat some steak, you know, what with the iron in hemoglobin
also Broccoli has lots of iron as well

and the trim is a good idea, it won't make it grow faster, but the lack of split ends will make it seem that way

I went through the exact same thing. I think most people who grow their hair have had that ****ty phase between short and long hair. There's nothing much you can do but just let it grow.
