Realistically, there is no one magical way to make your hair super long, super fast (unless you count hair extensions, of course). So instead of simply lusting over celebrities' amazing 'dos (ugh, Blake), try these tips to help your hair grow faster.

1. Dry Scalp Massage

Give yourself at-home scalp massages, says L.A. stylist Philip B. Massaging your head can help stimulate the blood flow to your scalp, which helps nutrients get to your hair follicles more quickly. Better yet, make a *friend* give you a scalp massage.

2. Wet Hair Massage

While washing your hair, massage the scalp with your fingerti...

I know what you are thinking, using lemon on your hair? Isn't this used for cooking and drinking? Well you'll be surprise that lemon has several different uses in this world, but i'm only going to discuss one specific one (Hair). Did you you know that the acid in the lemon we eat is so high in acid that it can be used to remove buildup on our hair strands?Yes..

 A lemon treatment can help remove product buildup from your hair and add a brilliant shine.  To make, combine the juice from 1 large lemon with about 1 tablespoonful of conditioner.  To use, first rinse your hair thoroughly with water....

Although many work environments encourage creative and fashion forward hairstyles, some jobs still require a conservative appearance.  Regardless if you wear your hair straight, curly, natural, braided, or in an afro, you can be sure that your hairstyle is work appropriate if you can answer yes to the following questions:

1. Does your hair look clean with no visible dandruff?

2. Other than subtle highlights, is your hair basically one color?

3. Does your hair color look natural for someone with your skin tone?

4. No matter if your hair is straight or curly, is your hair texture...

Color's worst enemy is water," says New York City haircolorist Ruth Roche. In fact, the latest research shows as much as 80 percent of color fade is caused by water alone, not shampooing or scrubbing, says Jeni Thomas, Ph.D., senior scientist for Pantene. Here's why: Dye strips the strands of their outer lipid layer. Like the natural oils found on your skin, lipids make hair feel soft and smooth, and their loss has a cascade of negative effects. For starters, hair becomes more porous, which is why, in the shower, colored hair absorbs and releases water easily. As it exits, water takes along wit...

 What to do when you encounter a natural hair road block! Hair tip
If you encounter a tangle or matted area while combing your hair, stop combing, and immediately apply a creamy conditioner to the area. Finger massage the conditioner directly into the tangle and gently and slowly separate the hairs until the tangle is removed. Apply more conditioner if needed for stubborn knots. Once you can run your fingers smoothly through your hair, then you can resume combing and style as usual.

Are you brushing right! Hair Tip
The bristles of a brush can damage the scalp and tear the hair cuticles, especially if used on kinky curly hair, which is extremely fine and fragile. Although, if done correctly, brushing can help stimulate hair growth by strengthening the follicles and spreading natural oils, such as sebum, throughout the hair; it is much safer to gently use a wide tooth comb or your fingers to stimulate the scalp. Since you won't be spreading oils with a brush, you can simply apply an oil treatment directly to the ends. If you feel that you must brush, only use one with natura...

Although everybody knows, everyone doesnt practice what their taught. Late night Hair Tip
If you do not want to wrap your hair at night with a scarf, a satin pillowcase is the healthiest choice for your hair while you sleep. The smooth satin won’t snag your hair, and it will also help your hair retain moisture. As an added bonus, a satin pillowcase is also healthier for your face because it helps the skin retain moisture as well and reduces facial creasing. In other words "Stop Sleeping Naked'

The easiest way to make your Natural Curly hair made easy ! Great Hair Tip
When parting natural or curly hair into sections, use a leave-in conditioner to help the comb slide more easily through the hair and prevent snagging or pulling. First part the hair with your fingers—second, spray the leave-in conditioner directly onto the area where you want to slide the comb—third, use the end of a rat tail comb to smoothly part the hair. Great for preventing breakage and discomfort.
