Struggling to Grow Your Hair? This Is How an Expert Does It

It's not surprising that one of the year's most searched-for terms is "how to grow hair faster." Blame Kim Kardashian West's long hair, Selena Gomez's enviable locks or just the fact that the lob has fallen out of favour, but super-long hair is here to stay, which means everyone wants to know how to make their hair grow faster. In fact, one of the biggest salons in the UK, Daniel Hersheson, has just launched a new seriously long hair-extension service.

When I spoke to Hadley Yates, the salon's extension expert, he revealed that everyone's after the Cher look right now, and that "mermaid hair" was ideal for people heading off to festivals. But if you've been trying for years without the desired Rapunzel-esque success, or chopped it all off when the lob took over and now yearn for the return of your long locks, we've got exactly the information you need and the solution to all your stunted-hair-growth quandaries.

That's right: We've found out exactly how you really can make hair grow faster. While plenty of myths abound (e.g., eat your crusts, the cold-water rinse), we've gone straight to an expert source for the facts, the science and the tips that really work. Want to grow your locks long and strong—without spending a lifetime waiting for the results? This is exactly what trichologist Anabel Kingsley (daughter of legendary hair guru Philip Kingsley) has to say on the matter.
