Sorry, folks. Patience seems to be the only cure for short hair, after all.
When I was 19 and spending a summer abroad, I thought it would be super fun to chop off my hair in an Italian salon. My extremely long tresses were shortened into a chin-length bob with just a few snips. How cool am I? I thought. Within a day, though, I looked in the mirror and asked, what have you done? I spent the rest of the summer longing for hair I could throw back into a ponytail.
Can you really speed up your hair’s growth?
Supposedly, regular trims would encourage my hair to grow faster, so I could ditch my awkward bob. I dutifully went back to my little Italian salon throughout the summer with hope in my heart, only to feel disappointed with my hair growth results.
