..but I need to know! How the hell can I get my hair to grow quicker?! Its been at the same length for ages and it just aint long enough. There must be some magic way! At the minute I trim the ends every few weeks with my razor whilst I'm shaving  :lol: doesnt really help much tho!

My god, what have I become?!

I used to have that worry Willo - now I just worry about the day when I have to shave it all to a no.4 to level out the baldness  :(

There's a critical mass in long hair - you look like a choir boy for ages and then it happens.

Haha I think I'm at that stage. Its just past my eyes or level depending on how curly it decides to be, I hate it! I want it to be crazy long!

dont cut the ends man, just let it grow.

i needed about 1 year and a bit more to go from short to a respectable lenght.. and the time inbetween realy REALY sucks.

but my hair grows pretty damn fast. i had it down to my waist in about three years time. then i cut it two years ago (or was that last year. i forget) till it was a little above half my back. now it's between my waist and half of my back again

yeah, i'm assuming shaving the ends of the hair is where you're going wrong- cutting it = making it shorter :roll:

Yeah I only recently started it, as apparently just trimming the ends a bit makes it grow quicker for some reason. Stimulates the hair maybe? I dunno haha

even if I had the patience to go through the inbetween stage for over a year, it'd still look cr@p as my hair's so curly - so mine's a #3 back and sides, brushed forward, flick at the front  8)  (I'm not happy until it looks sortof 80s action hero like  :lol: )

i know that actual shaving (i.e. close to the skin) stimulates the growth, and makes it grow back thicker- don't know about shaving near the ends- i suppose it might...

Ooh I dunno, I just asked girls I know and they say to get a trim every so often haha. No way am I paying for a hairdresser to go and cut too much off (its happened before!), so I thought I'd just razor the ends for free..

You trim the ends every so often to prevent split ends...  Or to get rid of them if they're already there.

I have a no2 and even I know that ^  :roll:  :lol:

Edit - thinking about it, using a razor against the hair probably isn't that great for it.. it's probably more of a drag+tear for cutting length instead of a clean precise cut which you'd get with a pair of scissors...

It's just a guess, but you're probably better off using a pair of scissors.  You'd be able to be neater with scissors either way anyway..

mine gets to a certain length and stops - anyone who saw me at musiclive knows that i'm trying to make it long - but right now i look like a bloody idiot! cutting it to make it grow is a wives tale! doesnt work
