I'm a boy and I have short hair, lets say 5 inches. Can somebody please tell me how I can grow my hair longer, like at least 3-6 inches longer before the beginning of October? Please and thank you.

I'm afraid you're going to be very disappointed with this answer. Hair only grows about a half inch per month. It would take you 6 to 12 months to grow your hair 3 to 6 inches longer. Why do you need your hair to be so long by October? There are hair styling salons that can put extensions in, but I think that's pretty expensive to do. (09/05/2008)
There are many kinds of fairly inexpensive fake hair items that you can use. Something called a "fall" can be attached to your real hair on the back of your head and will blend in fairly well. I wore one for a few months like that and it was easy to put on, and it looked good.
Sorry, but nothing you eat or do to your hair will help. Half an inch per month is the rate for all of us except slower for those who are malnourished or very stressed, such as late pregnancy. (09/05/2008)
I agree that you can't grow your hair more than about 1/2" by early October. On the other hand, if your hair has any curl, you may be able to make it look a bit longer by putting a styling product in your damp hair, combing it out straight, and letting it air dry.
I should add that I personally prefer guys with short hair! (09/06/2008)
Brush your hair, by massaging your scalp (brushing), it stimulates growth. (09/06/2008)
Very ambitious of you! Like someone else posted it does take time to grow hair and extensions might be an option, although very expensive. I have great hair genes and mine grows really fast. I do stimulate the hair follicle daily by brushing in the opposite direction (flip head over, brush back to front) and stimulate the scalp with an olive oil and peppermint, or rosemary extracts (shampoo after). Hope that helps. (09/09/2008)
Exercising usually increases my hair growth. It's weird, but it seems to honestly work. (09/10/2008)
Try vitamins and horsetail extract and shampoo and conditioner that contains horsetail. My hair grows faster than normal when I use Mane 'n Tail. (09/18/2008)
Dude, as another guy who grows his hair long, take my advice. I grew my bangs out long to get the scene/emo look. To get your hair longer, use Mane n Tail shampoo. People say it doesn't work, but forget them, it works. Omega 3 vitamins help (but can result in gaseous results XD) and keeping it healthy by letting it air dry. Shampooing it every day can dry it out, so do this every other day and condition every day. Thus, keeping it healthier.
Massaging the scalp really helps as everyone says: increased blood flow will help. Getting a trim to get rid of damaged hair is one of the best things that helps, stop the damage before it gets all the way down to your roots. Following these steps will help you greatly and I hope you get that sweet long hair soon. (10/19/2008)
