    Hey welcome to the forum!
    I have no idea what you can do to promote hair growth, other than regular trimming and eating a balanced, healthy diet. I think hair growth is genetic, and some people just cannot grow their hair to a longer length .

    Hey, welcome. My hair grows really slow too, but regular trimming is helping me, I have shoulder length hair, and I tip my head upside down and trim it about once a month now, it has taken a while of regular trimming to make any difference. If you are not eating well it might affect your bodies ability to grow and repair, you might need more protein or omegas or aminos or something, or some random minerals, my brain says zinc but I don't know if that is relevant at all. Also, you could try rubbing sesame oil into your hair and scalp. Sesame is, sort of, fabled to grow back hair on bald heads and turn grey hair back to coloured and all sorts of ridiculous stuff. Massaging your scalp regularly, gently pulling your hair, near the roots, every day, brushing, slowly so as not to cause breakage of hair, but firmly, these will all stimulate the scalp and help your hair to grow thick and strong and long. Hope some of that is of use

    hey , thanks all for your advise so far and kind welcome messages.
    yer i think vitamins etc. might be the problem in my workwe always do 12 hr shifts and dont really get breaks so if where on night shift we start 7pm and finish 7am then all of a sudden we have to swap and do the oposite on day shifts. it really messes with your body and effects your eatting patern a lot so i think vitamins might be the problem here well lack of.
    I will definatly try all of your advise so far and will post later with the results ! once again thank you all

    Eat well and massage your scalp.
    Hair grows from within, all the hair you can see is dead and trimming regularly won't make a blind bit of difference, nor will pulling it. Each individual hair has a lifespan and that is different for us all - if your hairs have a shorter lifespan they will fall out before they get to being 'long'.
    Patience mate. It's the only way.

    yer i think you are right lol i read on a website that hair if left alone should achive about 6 inches a year on average so i think no hair product lots of keeping it healthy and just leave it to do its thing is the way foward...even if it does mean looking like im wearing a crash helmet for a bit lol

    Maybe a hat or head band that you can enjoy would be a way of managing your hair while you are growing it? Hair a few inches long is often long enough to get in your eyes and not long enough to tie up, maybe you could make or buy yourself one.
