Hair Growth Update

I haven't posted about my battle with my hair length since November but it is always on my mind!  I'm currently torn on whether to chop it all to a mid-length style but I know I'd end up hating it, so I'm sticking to my long hair aim!

APRIL 2010


JUNE 2011

Hopefully you can see the length is constantly improving and the condition is amazing considering I abuse it with heat most days!  My routine hasn't changed dramatically since November except that I switch up the products a lot more - my new favourite is the Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends leave in cream - and include volumising mousses most days to give my mane a much needed boost without back combing! 

The future....

I will be going for a trim as soon as I get back from my holiday because I'm really not a fan of the tapered ends that Toni & Guy have given me.  I want it to be all mostly one length to ensure the ends look as thick as possible.  Then the V05 oil will come into play to ensure it stays as healthy as possible!

Do you have any miracle hair growth products to recommend??  I'd love to hear about them - anything to give me the Kardashian hair of my dreams! xxx


  1. I have been growing my hair since November aswell and its geting there but very slowly, what are you doing do make it grow?

  2. You hair is amazing xxx I've been trying to grow my hair but it isnt really working. Lol

  3. Wow, your hair is gorgeous! It looks in such a good condition :) I use the VO5 oil too and it is a godsend! xxx

  4. I'm also in the process of growing out my hair and I find the Pantene breakage defense shampoo really helps!

  5. Great post! It's really motivating (:

  6. I'm always so jealous of your hair - it's looking amazing!

    One thing I love is coconut oil - leave it on for an hour or overnight before washing and it makes your hair so soft...that and moroccan oil before blowdrying - amazing! x

  7. It's so lovely and long, very jealous xx

  8. you have the most beautiful hair I've ever seen! x

  9. Oh wow, it's grown out so much! It looks gorgeous! I'm trying to grow out my hair, and the last hairdresser I had got a little too snip-happy. Don't cut your hair!!

  10. Thank you girls! It's been such a long process but finally feeling happy with it!!

    @Shel - I just use masses of leave in conditioner and heat protectant and try to use heat only a few times a week! I also only get it trimmed every 6 months or so xx

    @Sandhi & Jen - Thank you for the recommendations!! I'll definitely be trying these out xx

  11. Your hair is gorgeous and it's grown so much! I use a deep conditioner twice a week and I've recently been trying home-made hair masks like the olive oil one or the avocado one which leave my hair feeling less damaged! My hair grew a lot when I stopped brushing it and using a wide-toothed comb/Tangle Teezer!
