Not necessarily. It depends how tightly you tie it. If it is a very tight bun, then it may pull on the strands of hair and cause them to fall out, but if it is loose, then it will not do that and may even protect your hair. Also, it can add slight waves to your hair, which will help make your hair look thicker.

The catagen phase, also known as the transitional phase, allows the follicle to, in a sense, renew itself. During this time, which lasts about two weeks, the hair follicle shrinks due to disintegration and the papilla detaches and “rests,” cutting the hair strand off from its nourishing blood supply. Signals sent out by the body (that only selectively affect 1 percent of all hair of one’s body at any given time) determine when the anagen phase ends and the catagen phase begins. The first sign of catagen is the cessation of melanin production in the hair bulb and apoptosis of follicular melanocytes.[4] Ultimately, the follicle is 1/6 its original length, causing the hair shaft to be pushed upward. While hair is not growing during this phase, the length of the terminal fibers increase when the follicle pushes them upward.

Hi Meredith. It sounds to me like the chlorine is definitely damaging your hair. Are you using a water-tight cap when swimming? Additionally, are you having it cut regularly? Chlorine will damage your hair, making it more prone to splitting. Regular haircuts will prevent this. I would recommend using a weekly hair treatment, such as coconut oil or a specific hair mask from LUSH to reinject nutrients back into your hair. I hope this helps. Thanks, Steph
Hi! I just got engaged, and I’m trying g to grow my hair back out to my waist where it used to be. I have about a year and seven months, and I want my hair back!!

My hair is naturally really fine but it’s strong and healthy! Please help!
To block hormonal action and help to slow the progression of hair loss in men, a doctor or dermatologist may prescribe finasteride, a prescription-only medication designed to be taken once a day. Side effects of the drug are uncommon, but include decreased sex drive and sexual dysfunction.
Correct! While a hair relaxer will straighten curly hair, it will not do anything for thinning hair. In fact, a relaxer could further damage your hair, especially if the product contains lye! Read on for another quiz question.

I have been growing my hair out now it will be about 2 months on the 26th of December. Before reading all the tips and strategies that were suggested i had already been practicing a few that was mentioned.Before my beard amd head hair was very thin and wasnt growing any longer but now my hair is already about 3 inches long.

I also message my scalp once a day with miss jessies curl conditioner followed with cold water everyday . I will keep you updated on how far my hair comes.

But I am afraid these tips are not going to work, or be a waste of time(of which i don’t have a lot of). My hair also sucks to get oil out of so what treatment do you recommend?
Not quite! Vitamin A is important and supports your overall health, which can influence the health of your hair, but it hasn’t been shown to directly influence hair thickness or growth. There’s a better option out there!
