What helps curly hair to grow faster?

Help! My curly hair does not ever increase in length. I have tried almost everything and it always stays the same length. I know it is actually growing because I color my hair and every month when I go for a touch up, there is at least a half inch of hair root showing.

    Hello Sonjak,My name is Tameeka and im a hair stylist at Christo fifth avenue Where we specialize in curly hair.Umm you want to know how can you make your curly hair grow faster-well it is all about deep conditioning your hair, not just daily conditioning. You must use more intense treatments on your hair to help feed your hair in order for it to grow faster, if your hair hair is too dehydrated, then it will not grow as fast as it should be, which is about an eigth of an inch a month and more in the spring and summer time,so it is best you start now,so you are all set for the warmer weather.You would want to look for products with no oils or wax ,silicone and alcohols because they are all bad for curly hair so be sure to look for a protein based product which will help you get some eternal weight to your hair like corn wheat and rice just to name a few and other ingredients like amino acids,botanicals vitamin a&e wich will help with bringing out your natural shine. you would also want to be faithful with keeping up with your treatments possibly start out- once a week for about a month then every two weeks untill you reach the point where you can do it at least once a month,you will know when you are at that point becauseyou condition of your hair is way healthier and you will see more growth patterns.In edition you can also take a womens one a day vitamin for hair skin and nails which is filled with folic acid vit b -e,which help produce healthy hair growth aswell,you may want to consult with your doctor first.
    Well keep me posted on how your hair is doing if you start with your treatments. good luck and hope to hear from you soon.

    Many of us take vitamins with a lot of Biotin and Keratin. The Growing Out board has lots of advice, so you might want to check that out, too.

    Is breakage an issue??? Maybe it is growing, but if the ends are breaking, then you won't notice/have any length.

    Just a thought!

    1 Women's One a day
    1 500 mg tablet of Silica
    1 1000 mg tablet of MSM (apparently increases the length hair will grow to)
    1 500 mg Evening Primrose oil softgel capsule
    1 500 mg FlaxSeed Oil softgel capsule
    2 600 mcg Biotin tablets
    2 GNC NourishHair Tablets or GNC Hair, Skin and Nails tablets
