Patience isn’t my strong suit. And if you’re trying to grow your hair out, it’s probably not your strong suit either. We all want to know how to grow your hair faster, because if you’re after long, lustrous locks you probably want them right now!
I spoke with the Pros over at Sassoon Salon who shared some great tips on how to grow your hair faster. What’s more, they’re giving away a free cut and color makeover to ONE lucky reader! (Check here to see if there is a Sassoon Salon near you). Read on for these hair growth tips and enter to win at the end of the post!
How to Grow Your Hair Faster
Use a Hair Mask
Hair masks are fantastic for taking great care of your tresses and to help your hair grow faster. Sassoon recommends an intensive hair mask like Kerastase Masque UV Defense Active, which seals in moisture and helps promote growth. I also like Fekkai Technician Color Care Luxe Color Hair Mask, which is great for color-treated hair and has a lovely scent.
Get Regular Cuts
When you’re trying to grow long hair, it can seem counterintuitive to cut it. But cutting those split ends actually helps promote growth. If you’re wanting to grow your hair faster, schedule a trim every six weeks to prevent your ends from splitting.
Skip the Daily Wash
Overshampooing can actually weaken you strands, so wash your hair every other day instead. Some of my current favorite shampoos are most anything from Kerastase, Redken Color Extend Magnetics, and I also like the Dessange Purifying Clay Balancing Shampoo when I need a clarifying treatment to remove buildup (I do this about once a week and it’s under $10!).
Use Good Quality Tools
It’s no secret hot tools can seriously damage your hair, so it’s important to invest in quality hair tools that won’t fry your ends. Sassoon recommends the GHD line of hairdryers, stylers and curling irons.
Don’t Color at Home
At-home hair color is not the same grade as what the professionals use, this is really something that’s best to leave to them. Although it can be really tempting to just grab a box of color at the store, your hair will thank you when you visit the salon instead.

Sassoon Salon is giving away a free makeover, valued at over $300, to one lucky reader! There are 12 Sassoon salon locations in the U.S.. I visited the one in Scottsdale recently for a cut and color and loved how professional and experienced their stylists are. Unlike a lot of other hair salons, Sassoon has a specific stylist for each process. So you’ll see a color expert and then a cut expert, instead of having the same stylist through the entire process.
