I want to grow my hair an inch or more in a month. How do I do it without buying something expensive?

So sorry, but no matter what you do that is just not going to happen! Hair only grows an average of one half inch a month for almost everyone and "absolutely nothing" you do is going to change that. I was a hairstylist for 35 years and, out of hundreds of regular clients over those years, I only knew three whose hair grew close to even three fourths of an inch a month. (08/12/2010)
My own experience with this has been activity, along with Dollar General brand of Hair/Skin/Nails multi-vitamins, zinc, and Biotin supplements!
I had thin weak hair that grew slower than it does now, although when I'm sitting at the computer a lot, weeks on end, or inside too much, it grows less than I'd like. Otherwise, my new growth really takes off in the sun and with my gardening and cleaning routine. Indoor exercises will help hair to grow as well, I'd almost forgotten. Age and diet are important. Prescriptions can cause a stand-still in growth.
A well-balanced diet with plenty of organic veggies, and water daily makes a big difference for me. Hope it works for you! I'm low income, so you should be able to afford it for a time.
I take 30-50 mg of Nature's Way Zinc chelate, Vit. D3 2,000 international units (Rexall brand from Dollar General when on sale), and Bluebonnet Brand of Biotin 5000 mcg (not mg!).
Some folks claim that an egg each day will make hair stronger and grow, so I will try that soon, in addition. Any of these alone won't do much, but together, the plan is making an impact in my life, and should help you. God bless you. (08/15/2010)
I'd like to clarify what lyndagayle mentions here. Exercise and good eating habits indeed make the body function more efficiently in all aspects including for skin, nails, bones and internal organs, but it will only keep one tip top and healthy and not make hair or nails grow any faster than is genetically predisposed.
The reason for hair growing faster at some times rather than others is due to metabolism and/or overall health. When sedentary, metabolism slows down which slows down blood and oxygen supply which naturally slows down growth of hair and nails. Also, hair and nails are a dead appendage so anything you put on the hair itself is not going to make it grow faster. Okay, that's it for my physiology lesson for today. ;-) (08/18/2010)
