26th September 2019

So, decision made,  it’s time to grow your hair out. You’ve had the same hairstyle for so long that you’re getting bored looking in the mirror and you want something different to change your look. 

First of all, bravo! A lot of men get comfortable with the same haircut for years and don’t experiment with their style. It may be the case that you grow your hair out and hate the new look but you’ll never know until you try. 

We’re here to guide you along the way with our guide to growing out short hair. Read on for tips for letting your hair grow our, hairstyles that work for the in-between phase and help with the fastest way to grow your hair. 

Tips For Letting Your Hair Grow Out

Stay strong 

The first thing to realise is that this is going to be a tedious process. Unfortunately, shoulder-length locks don’t arrive overnight which means that your hair will be in an ‘in-between’ phase for a while. 

This will mean some new haircuts and new hair care. Remember the end goal and experiment with products in the process. Don’t get frustrated and chop it off to your original style. It’ll be worth it we promise!  

New Products 

If you’ve started with a very short cut you’ll notice that initially, your hair will feel like it’s growing very quickly. You may feel that your hair needs some new products to keep it easy to manage. Ask your barber what they think. They will be able to look at the length, texture and current cut, advising what will be best for the look you want to achieve. 

Keep Getting Your Haircut 

However long you’re hoping your hair to grow, it’s important to keep getting your hair cut. The in-between phase is a tricky one, and to stop you looking like a caveman you’re going to need a few trims to keep it in check and to help it grow quicker. Next time you’re in the barber’s chair, ask your stylist for advice on the best haircuts that will keep you looking tidy throughout the growing out phase.

The Fastest Way To Grow Your Hair Out 

It’s no secret that growing your hair out can be a long and tedious process. To help you along a bit we have the following tips to make it a bit more bearable. 

Regular Trims

Any hairdresser or female with long luscious locks will tell you that the best way to make your hair grow faster is by getting regular trims. If the ends of your hair are dead or in bad condition then the hair is less likely to grow quickly. That’s why we recommend a visit in between your short and long hair phase to keep everything in check. Go to see your barber every 4 – 6 weeks for a hair tidy up. 

Supplements 

There are many supplements and vitamins that can help with hair growth. Results vary from person to person and it can take a while for the results to start, but if you’re in a hurry then supplements can help. We recommended supplements containing Vitamin A – B Vitamins, Iron and Zinc to encourage hair growth. 

Stay Healthy 

If you have an unhealthy lifestyle then it shows and your hair growth will suffer for it. Make sure you’re eating a healthy diet while getting plenty of exercise and sleep. This will help the hair follicles be at their best and most productive. 

Most importantly, keep stress levels as low as possible. If you’re stressed and worrying then your body can be physically weaker, and that includes your hair cells.
