6 Natural Ways to Make Your Hair Grow Faster After a Bad Haircut

Last Friday night, while you were out celebrating the weekend, I was precariously dangling my head and shoulders off the side of my bed, massaging coconut oil desperately into my scalp and re-reading a Reddit thread for how to your hair grow out faster.

You see, several days earlier, I woke up and was struck by inspiration. I decided to cut my hair short for the first time since third grade. Armed with this photo of Miranda Kerr's recently cropped locks, I spontaneously called a chic salon in SoHo that came recommended and booked an appointment for that same afternoon. Buh-bye, hair.

To truly comprehend the gravity of this decision, you must understand that I've been mostly satisfied with exactly the same haircut for nearly 20 years. I don't have layers, bangs, or anything else one could reasonably call a "style" but have always loved my locks blunt, very lengthy, and naturally wavy. I've briefly considered short hair before, but never for more than a day or two, and always wake up the following morning thankful I didn't go through with the chop. So asking for a sharply angled lob was truly out of character.
