How do I make my hair grow longer?

Our hair typically grows at a rate of half an inch per month. For some people this may be faster, but for those who can't wait to grow out their short hair (myself included!), it can seem like forever. Nutritionists encourage hair growth by eating food rich in Vitamin B (peas, carrots, soy beans, eggs), Vitamin E (green vegetables, whole foods, nuts), and Biotin (brown rice, oats, lentils, walnuts). However, a watched pot never boils, so the best thing for you to do is simply wait. Hair accessories like headbands, scarves, and fashion add-ons like hats can make the wait less boring, so buy a few pieces to keep you busy. And if you're still impatient, buy a few clip-on extensions (make sure they match your hair!) to help make you pass the time.
