Forget the myth that frequent trims make your hair grow faster. Human hair grows at a constant rate, about 1/2 inch each month, no matter how much you cut it.

Occasional trims can remove split ends, however, leaving your hair looking much healthier.

That will also unclog pores that are clogged on the scalp that might be interfering with growing hair. Brush your hair for 100 strokes each day to promote hair growth.
Always wait until hair is dry before you brush it or comb it. When you do brush, choose a brush that has soft and flexible bristles. Combs should have teeth that are widely spaced. Eliminate tangles by brushing the ends of your hair, then working upward to the roots.
