I’ve joined the club. The club of girls growing out an inverted bob. Oh, you didn’t know there was a club? Well there is. I’ve been growing mine out since February after chopping off my beloved but seriously damaged long locks. And good lord, regrowth is painful. Thankfully, I have gotten past the hardest part (when it’s no longer an inverted bob but not yet anything else) and am now sporting a long, shoulder skimming lob that I can definitely work with. The biggest benefit of this process? Seeing my hair grow back healthier, stronger and thicker than it was before. Here’s what’s made it more bearable:
5. Hydrate – It’s no secret that drinking a healthy amount of water every day improves your overall health, but it also aids in healthy hair (and nail!) growth, not to mention that well-hydrated glow. I’m an 80-ounces-a-day kind of girl. I track it using washi tape on a 16 ounce tumbler.
6. Exercise – Did you know that getting your blood pumping helps your hair grow? It does, and there is no better motivation for me to go out and bike 25 miles than the thought that I might come home with longer hair.
Anyone else have regrowth tips? We’d love to hear what has worked for you (or what hasn’t). –Dani
