I’ve got curly/wavy hair that soaks up conditioner and oil like a sponge, so I can’t offer much advice on products, but there is one thing I think is useful for any hair type: regular scalp massages.
You don’t have to use an oil or anything, just massage your scalp as if you were shampooing your hair, but for longer and perhaps more vigorously. It stimulates blood flow, so your hair will grow thicker, stronger, and ultimately longer. It also helps disperse the natural oils of your scalp so they can spread down the length of your hair and naturally moisturize them without need of extra leave-in product. (And scalp massages are also just really relaxing!). Do them on yourself or get a friend to help. (You might want to offer a trade, lol).
Also, look at the big picture: Healthy hair comes out of a healthy body. Make sure your diet is nutritious. Get your zinc from food and multivitamins, not just your hair products. You should also make sure you get a lot of B-vitamins (Vitamin B6, biotin, folic acid), fatty acids (flaxseed oil, salmon oil), and antioxidants. Also, it’s been proven that if you keep stress levels low the growth and health of your hair and nails will increase, so keep that in mind too!posted over 5 years ago
Do you use heat styling tools? If so, you need to find a good heat protectant like this one This will prevent your hair from damaging as easily at the ends.posted over 5 years ago
I recommend vitamins and drink lots of water. Also if you say your hair is brittle and dry? Are you dying/using heat on your hair? If you dye your hair I recommend you have a professional do it for you and try not to use heat on your hair everyday. Flat irons have been shown to make the hair more brittle.posted over 5 years ago
Get it trimmed every 6-8 weeks. Avoid using heat products without using a heat protector first, deep condition it once a week take, and take vitamin b, biotin, and e to help boost your hair growth!posted over 5 years ago
don’t use your conditioner on ur roots, it’ll make your hair appear more oily. Never use heat tools without a protectant spray or serum, I like Tresseme’s bcus its not oily. When you shower massage your scalp to stimulate growth.posted over 5 years ago

For serious hair growth, you really need to have a biotin supplement (luckily, a decent amount of biotin is in most prenatal vitamins, so it’s not a hard-to-get nutrient). If you want stronger hair, there are many companies that make products specifically for damage-prone hair. You’ll need to switch out as many of your regular products for hair-strengthening products as possible. Also, you may want to lay off of any serious chemicals or heat tools for a while, so that your old hair has a chance to breathe and your new hair can grown out to a sufficient length. You should also occasionally massage you scalp, but do so very gently.posted over 5 years ago

Definitely start taking Biotin (you can get a bottle of like 150 at Walmart for about $3) and don’t wash your hair every day. Sleeping on a silk pillow case is also supposed to be really good for your hair. I used to use Infusium 23 shampoo & conditioner and it also seemed to make my hair grow pretty fast and helped with the damage from constantly using heat tools.posted over 4 years ago
