Normal healthy hair grows at a rate of about a half an inch per month. That means if you've had your bangs trimmed, within a few weeks they will be falling back in your eyes again. If this isn't happening for you, there are some things you can do to help encourage your hair to grow.

Nutrition and proper eating is a critical element for overall health and beauty. The same holds true for hair growth. Your body gets greedy when it is under nourished, so it won't give up any vitamins or minerals needed for hair growth if they are required to keep other areas of the body well. Therefore, a well balanced diet is always step one to growing long and healthy hair.

Along with making sure you are getting all the supplements you need, you should take out the things your body and your hair don't need. Cutting out cigarettes and caffeine will improve your overall health and also speed up the production cycle of your hair.

You've probably heard this a thousand times before, but take great care of your hair if you want it to grow. Basically that comes down to avoiding things that will damage your hair. Heated styling appliances, such as blow dryers, curling irons or flat irons can strip your hair of natural moisture. Dry, damaged hair is not conducive to growth, so please, step away from the blow dryer!

Too much brushing or combing is also troublesome for your tresses. Use a leave in conditioner to help detangle and give your hair the slip it needs to be combed through without breakage. You should also avoid tying your hair back with accessories such clips or ponytail holders. Accessories often break or stretch your hair which results in less hair, rather than more.

Eating well and taking great care of your hair will ensure it grows at a steady rate. While the wait may be frustrating, before long, your hair will be growing at a steady and healthy rate, and you'll be thinking it's time to go for a trim!
