Polly RG: You should watch the video anyway for more detail, but: 1. Don't cut your hair (keep it healthy and only trim when damaged). 2. Wash your hair less - learn how to do a good refresh. 3. Sleep with a bonnet. 4. Use rice water (link provided). 5. Use DIY hair masks and conditioners. 6. Use satin scrunchies. 7. Eat a healthy diet. 8. Get enough sleep. 9. Use wigs when you want a different style. 10. Braids (protective styling). 11. Finger detangling (link provided). 12. Don't colour your hair.
Malaya Kittya: "Sleep is a really important part of-" welp there goes my attempt to grow my hair
Lacey April: Yeah girl, film a trim for us! You're my inspiration for committing to my curl. After a lifetime of straightening I finally threw my irons away!
Abier eltayieb: 5 years ago I had the same hair... But always used to wear it straight cause of the community that I used to live in. Because of heat, my hair became so thin and it's now sooooo short recently I start to love my curls and I am taking good care of it. Pray for me to return my old healthy hair
TheBuddha Queen: Watching this at work and my boss pecks over my shoulder and asked me “why are you watching a video of yourself at work?” My year is officially complete. Best compliment ever!!!!!!
Nina Miranda: You have helped me grow my hair out in the last 6 months! Your hair is GOALS.
Sophia: I completely quit straightening my hair on July of this year. I trimmed off the heat damaged straight ends off. Now I'm just patiently waiting for all of this unevenness to grow out for atleast another 6-8 months and I'll big chop it again with your method! Your hair really grows like weed..
Curlswithlizzz: “It sounded like it was gonna be a list but it’s not” I definitely agree with the bonnet and satin scrunchie tip! It makes a world of difference in your breakage and moisture retention. Really great video!!
Samira Ali: Thanks to your tips my hair has been growing a lot. Please keep making videos like this I’m sure a lot of other people will benefit from them too. ❤️
Mrs. Butterfly: Thanks for the great tips, Lana. I absolutely agree about hair color. I can't color my hair and keep it at its best either. Props to those who can rock color because it creates great dimension in curly hair, but it's just not for my hair.
Adriana M. Ipock: I'm in the process of trying to grow my hair out at the moment, but the wait is horrible haha. It's been about two years since I did a big chop and now my hair's almost past my shoulders. But when it's brushed out it's a little longer. Do you guys have any affordable product recommendations?? (Aside from the ones in the video haha) But anyways, love the video Lana! Keep up the good work girl! :D
Jessica Stewart: I love this!! You look stunning! I’ve been watching you for years and seeing your transition is amazing! Love you and your hair!!
crystalsnow: YAY! AN UPDATED ONE, I really needed this! Your hair is gorgeous btw
Kara Mitchell: Thanks for the great tips, Lana I do some of those and I’ll consider trying the others!
mediocre bankai: I had tailbone length 3b hair and this year I got really stressed, I have lost so much of it. Its heartbreaking, 5 years down the drain literally. I dont know how to come back from it honestly.
The Curly Hair Network: Definetly going to use all of these since I want my hair as long as yours !
Karis Grace: My hair about 6 months ago was half way down my butt when straightened (I have 2B/2C hair) but, my hair was fried up until about my ribs. I straightened it almost everyday for 2 years. I had to cut it and haven’t straightened in a few months. For real, don’t use heat.
Anna J: I would love to see u try out the hair paint wax that’s been going around :)) since you don’t color your hair this seems like a great non damaging alternative
Trish Pipkins: I no longer use harsh chemicals to color my hair but I use henna. I love red and now that I've got some grey I have some very pretty coppery highlights! I'm still growing out what I bleached. It's taking forever but I'm getting there!
miss.arachne: Speaking of diy hair masks when I run out of my hair masks and have to wait to get more. I take my regular rinse out conditioners and/or some leave in conditoner and put my favorite oils or such into a container for my diy hair mask. Works great.
Caitlyn Calas: I know it's really unhealthy but I kind of want to see you straighten your hair just to see how long it is! Btw you have gorgeous curls, girl!!
Wren Sierra: I love your vids! Some of your tips are so helpful; now I like to sit and snip off my split ends while watching videos. Do you have any tips for straight hair? Do you think it differs much from curly hair?
Denise T: Lol - I looked quickly and thought the video was entitled “how to grow long, curly hair by Summer!” and I was like here we go again lol but it’s by lovely LANA ❤️ great video and very helpful. Washing less is interesting...given our hair is weakest when wet and the benefit of natural oils I’m intrigued.
Aleena Gen: Love this boo boo and can you do a hair loss remedy video recently I’ve been having a lot of hair fallout and can you also define what’s irregular or if it’s natural it’s really been putting me down lately
Dani Parducci: I've been following your hair growth tips for some time now, and my hair has definitely grown, but it has also become more curly, so the growth doesn't show because of the new shrinkage I get XD
Blen Hadgu: Ok so I had longish hair that I haven’t cut since I was five then quarantine got me a little crazy so I cut my hair off like to the point I can’t even tie it so thank you for this.
Genesis Calderon: I love your channel could you do something on hair porosity I’ve been wanting to learn more about it !
Adina violet subliminals: I just wanna say a thank you to all the hair people who help me with my hair my hair is mid back length now it use to be back length and I had a protective style while putting oils and rice water daily in my hair and I grew 6 inches of hair in a week and my hair has never grew that fast and I’m not mixed so do not come for me I have always wanted long hair now I got it
Zai A: This was so helpful! Thanks curlfriend! ♥

Samantha Quinonez: I just wanna throw it out there that the Coco & Eve deep conditioner has silicones. Just in case anyone is following the CGM! Great video as always babe xx
Nina Mendia: Hi Lana! I noticed you said you go to the gym. Do you wash your hair after the gym or do you refresh your hair like what you explained. That is one of my biggest issues. I go to the gym and get all sweaty and then my hair drys and frizzes. I do not wash my hair after my workout everyday so maybe I will try the refreshing method. I would love to hear your opinion.
Eco Zen: thank you Lana, great tips, also doing curly look, hair grows but not fast enough, your hair looks great
Mavis Otoo: I just started my natural hair journey and found this tips to be helpful. Nice curly hair. I wish to grow mine these long and healthy
Rae Little: Thank you sooo much my hair looks good now
Slimy Peach 🍑: I love your hair so much. I had to shave my hair because I was stupid and let my hairdresser into making my hair platinum and then blue. (I have natural extreme dark brown to black hair.) So, I gotta say I’m extremely envious of your hair length. I’m trying to grow my hair now. Washing just once a week with a good shampoo, using masks twice a week, and hair oils! I just want hair again.
Misty Fry: Just cut a bit of hair off Nov 17, and then started the cgm (I have 2b-c hair). I’m so excited to take care of and not cut my hair for a long time. I’m not even putting heat on for Christmas or my birthday so I can get my hair healthy again!
Ivie E. Jönsson: Do you detangle when you refresh? The back of my hair always just turns into one big knotted mess if I don't do anything to it. And then I'll have to spend twice as long detangling on wash days
Sophie TEXIER: Love the content you create. Thank you for sharing. You hair and yourself are gorgeous.
Ila P: I MUST to get on the rice water bandwagon. Great video!
Vanessa Hudson: Thank you so much Lana I love you and your videos so much this is very helpful ❤️
Jennifer Everett: Thank you for sharing your tips I have similar hair and trying to grow it longer and healthier right now it is armpit length I want longer never had my curls grow long before only when I straightened it
leelo: So I have 3b curls and I have to co-wash daily to keep my curls. When I sleep, my curls shrink (especially in the back) and frizz up and no amount of creams and sprays can bring them justice. I cut my hair mid-October and I have not seen any change. The weird thing is, is that I don't move when I'm asleep so I'm not sure about what happens at night. If anyone here in the comments has any tips or suggestions on what I should do, please reply. :)
randi: How often should i was my hair if i have an intense workout 1-2 times a week?
Liza Felton: Just started my curly girl routine, Love your videos but do you have low porosity protein sensitivity? Scared of rice rinse but want to grow my hair longer.
Rum Coke: I tried the rice water,(the fermented one), diluted it and sprayed it in my hair only once a week, my hair turned brittle. did I do anything wrong??
mia schutz: Quick question, when you say that you wash your hair once a week, do you mean only using shampoo once a week and using conditioner for the rest of the days or you only condition and shampoo your hair once a week? I take a shower and use conditioner pretty much every day. However, I like never use shampoo. I hope that makes sense.
Cierra Rose: I got layers and bangs. I asked the lady to keep length I just want bangs. But apparently she needed to give me layers so my hair wouldn’t be so flat, but my hair wouldn’t do that, she was just going based off of how her hair was. Not my hair is a bit uneven and thinner than ever. So now I’m working on growing it back out

Mary: Hi I need help guys. I've always had long hair and fast growing hair (cause of my genetics) and I have the same hair pattern as you Lana. However ever since 2011 when I cut my hair from midbutt length hair to 1-2 inches below my ear, I've been stuck at bra strap length ( for 7 years) ever since. My hair has always been resistant to relaxers and I got no damage from them and I dyed and relaxed my hair back in 2013 and relaxed again in 2016, however I can't get out this growth plateu and it's been too long for it to be affected by previous hair mistakes.
