    If you use heat styling tools a lot, stop using them/stop using them so much I stoped using my straighteners for about 3 months and my hair grew quite a lot

    Tie your hair in a braid or plait everyday. It will pull your hair bang and down toward the ground and cause your hair to grow faster. I'm just guessing this because I have done my hair in a braid pretty much all my life and only recently started doing a bun. I realised that when I did a braid for a week my hair grew longer dramatically. I've never cut my hair in my life and its currently 93cm long. Obv you don't want your hair that long but I presume a braid will help.

    blow drying it straight provides a good result with less damage I found with a good heat protectant, the style lasted longer too

    Do not up your hair in tight braids and ponytails. That will just pull out more hair. Some tips I've heard is to massage your scalp, eat healthy and sleep on silk pillow cases. Apparently softer cases stop hairs from breaking, or something to that affect. Ideally, you should not use any heat on your hair at all.

    If you're in bed it's warm which is good for hair growth.

    these methods work well, not as well as hair straighteners but they get my hair pretty straight and its worth it cause they cause no damage.

    you cant make you hair grow any longer but a healthy diet and lots of water will generally make it healthier

    it does some damage, but far less than straighteners Blow drying doesn't get up to temperatures of 230 degrees & as it lasts longer, there is less need to use it.

    Or you could try some frizz free shampoo/conditioner/serum and have an up-do to cut the heat out totally

    Don't dye it, don't blow dry it, don't straighten it, don't wash it every day, don't backcomb, don't brush when it's wet.

    Use oil (olive oil/coconut oil/almond oil), invest in a good sulphate free shampoo and conditioner, take multivitamins if your diet isn't particularly healthy.

    That's about all you can do, though hair growth really depends on genetics - some people just can't grow past a certain length and others never care for their hair yet it's down to their waist!

    Make sure you're using good heat protection if using straighteners/dryers.
    I would just suggest that you use them as little as you can - you don't need to give up completely but surely you can deal with a little natural wave on some days?

    Nothing you do to your hair, i.e. plaiting it, straightening it etc will have any effect on how fast it grows - only on how fast it breaks / get split ends. Hair is dead once it has left your scalp - that's why having it cut doesn't hurt.

    To encourage growth, you need to make sure you eat healthily and get all your vitamins, minerals and proteins. You also need to avoid stress.

    Trim your hair every 6 weeks as this get rids of the split ends and appears longer as split ends tend to curl upwards making your hair look shorter
